a little fodder for the pedantic

Watching Blair White and Ben Shapiro agree with each other is a little off putting. Firstly, Blair is young and a little too conservative minded for her own good given her trans nature. I have only seen enough of her videos to find her mildly disappointing and to know that her strident positions on some things are not solidly based. One recent one saw her apologize for her previous stances on some issues.

Ben Shapiro is a more than a bit of a dweeb and his stance on what to call transgender women a little too pedantic. When Blair rightly brings up a practical scenario, Shapiro goes to great lengths to counter with why he thinks it’s important to use exclusively biological birth as a guiding principle.

That may be, but Blair White does of course not look like a man and if you saw her on the street you would not point to “that guy over there” but Shapiro lets his overzealous application of his conservative ideology corner him into stupid mental gymnastics that would utterly confuse someone standing next to him who didn’t share his rigid dogma. He couldn’t bear to just call Blair “that woman over there” because his little pointy head won't permit it.

It makes for a highly entertaining but needless discourse about something that does not merit nearly enough discussion except maybe for the likes of Jordan Peterson....
