My hurt feelings? Yes, my feelings are so hurt as someone who isn't a transgender person. And clearly because I'm arguing for human decency in relation to OTHER people, this is about MY feelings. It has everything to do with being empathetic to the individual at hand, and this is coming from someone who didn't deliberately try to disrespect her and other transgender people. I'd say that someone arguing on the side who HAS done such a non-human thing would have no rational basis for which to argue with, but rather a heap of emotional bias.
