Riley J. Dennis has gone completely off the deep end. Words are not considered violence! That’s right, Riley has taken Laverne Cox’s comments in 2014 that misgendering trans people is an act of violence. I did not know that words are considered violence! Is is rude and/or disrespectful, yes. But words aren’t violence you special snowflake!
Riley goes on to say that Lavern has gone on to repeat this statement several times since, but “people still don’t want to believe it” says Riley. It amazes me that because a person is a celebrity, their word is thought to be infallible. Celebrities are just people like us, and Lavern is no exception. She studied dance in university, not psychology.
Riley goes on to talk about that misgendering can be particular dehumanizing to trans people, and I have to say that I do see Riley’s point here, but this is not violence!
Riley then goes on to go over how the modern definition of violence has become obsolete and that it needs to be updated. Funny that Riley clings on to the dictionary definition of feminism so hard.
