    First, the 100% is not artificial. It may be impossible to achieve, but it does not mean it is invalid. What we require to satisfy our own doubts is different than what it would take to call...

    Thanks for clarifying your point (or my interpretation of it). So, you can substitute gay for trans wherever I used it as it does not fundamentally alter my position. It is an interesting statistic...

    2. If it does exist, then it would take a perfectly objective being to recognize it.
