W.H. Auden (21 February 1907 – 29 September 1973) dies in Vienna at age 63. He was an English-American poet. Auden’s poetry was noted for its stylistic and technical achievement, its engagement with politics, morals, love, and religion, and its variety in tone, form and content. From around 1927 to 1939 Auden and Christopher Isherwood maintained a lasting but intermittent sexual friendship while both had briefer but more intense relations with other men. In 1939 Auden fell in love with Chester Kallman and regarded their relation as a marriage; this ended in 1941 when Kallman refused to accept the faithful relation that Auden demanded, but the two maintained their friendship, and from 1947 until Auden’s death they lived in the same house or apartment in a non-sexual relation, often collaborating on opera libretti such as The Rake’s Progress, for music by Igor Stravinsky.

Given that lesbians and gay men were oppressed by heterosexual owing to our not having procreative sex owing to our same sex/same gender respective sexualities.
which are no longer in the diagnostic manual and are a protected characteristic under most western nation law
the legal argument that the non procreative sexof Lesbians and Gay men sexuality is a hate crime or bigotry against persons with a body dysmorphia diagnosis of transgender, is foolish on the face of the claim

it was heterosexual men who coined the phrases “homophobia” and “transphobia” to make their having murdered, raped and assaulted individually and in groups of “heterosexual” men vs gay men and transwomen
there is no word other than assault, rape and murder when hetero men do this to heterosexual women, bisexual women and lesbians
Pansexuals and nonbinary are new identities which have not been illegal by name and definition in law
so for anyone to claim it is “transphobic” or “pan” or “bi” phobic for a heterosexual, bisexual or a gay man and lesbians to say no to a date with a bi, pan or trans person is to very much use the word incorrectly
gay men do not have to date gay men who do drag, which is bashing on women, nor transwomen who do not appeal as males nor transmen as penis transplants, which is proven medically possible are not done and objects are not body parts.
and for bisexual women and lesbians, in particular, to be told we do not have a no to a date, with a person who is clothes away from a heterosexual, is not only denying our human right to choose who we have sexual relationships with, to name call and insist we ignore our own senses is gaslighting.
post op transwomen may be sufficient for heterosexual or bisexual males, but bisexual women and lesbians are aware of what vaginas are
sexual activity is not interchangable and nonprocreative sex between the same genders and procreative sex between the two genders in a sexually reproducing species are the only two options
anyone who avoids informed consent and cannot accept a no to a date request, and responds with the name calling and sluring, is admitting that no one should date them, regardless of identity.
there is a right to a no individually and by demographic definition
which may not be “self identified” into by those who lack the shared characteristics
words have specific meaning, which can not include the opposite
biology terms, legal words and for human rights to matter, not words that allow women to positively self identify. language is intended to be specific and commonly understood.

meanwhile in the real world, and not academics, where an idea that may not be questioned by peers or at all, may be dismissed without consideration.
Just as atheists do not have to practise religions rejected, no one has to accept an idea that explains nothing, predicts nothing and cannot be tested, and also does not explain any better than what is more projection than substance.
