That “transition identity” thing happens. And asking people to pretend something that commonly happens doesn’t happen—asking them to ignore their own experience, asking them not to recognize themselves in others—isn’t the answer.
It’s particularly gratifying after I was all but accused of bi-phobia in the New York Times Magazine’s latest cover-story because I said what I believed to be true in a single specific case. You know what? There is such a thing as gaydar. Bidar? Not so much. And c’mon, Ann. Eat the crow!
