If you can identify as a woman in a man's body, or a black person in a white person’s body, then why stop at sex and race?  Some persons say they identify as cats.  Some have even asked to have their limbs amputated because they identify as paraplegics.

Fitting slogans for the identity movement may at first present a little difficulty.  “Power to the People” is no longer acceptable, because not all beings identify as people.  “Everything to the Entities” might do for now; let’s work on it.

It has rightly been said that we must stop discriminating against women who don’t have vaginas and men who don’t have penises, but let’s not forget fish who don’t have gills, like my neighbor Ed, a proud 68-inch trans trout who stands on two legs and fights prejudice every day.

And from now on, all dictionaries must be written as fill-in-the-blank.

What have we come to?  We used to rebel against injustice; now we rebel against the order of the created universe.  As human beings before our day understood, “an opinion is true or false according as it answers to the reality.”  Things aren’t true when they correspond to our thoughts; our thoughts are true when they correspond to things.
