+"But like, maybe a _better_ strategy than _pretending not to notice_ that women are a different thing that I don't understand, might be to try to listen to them, and learn from them, and appropriate the good parts of what they have without literally insisting that we're instances of the same thing, which is, unfortunately, not true. Or even—why am I even saying 'unfortunately'? It was already not true _before_ I picked up my teenage religion."
+"I don't see what's morally threatening about women being a different thing, because/as-long-as woman-cluster-humans still have the same amount of personhood as man-cluster-humans. If that _weren't_ true then that would be morally threatening, but that's not something you've brought up so far."

+"You _don't understand_. Sure, you might make a few interesting abstract points here and there, but this isn't some masturbatory ivory-tower intellectual _game_ to us. We're fighting for our _existence_ here."
+"Yes, you are. _And so am I_. I need simple language that [carves reality at the joints](https://www.lesswrong.com/posts/d5NyJ2Lf6N22AD9PB/where-to-draw-the-boundary) in order to achieve the map that reflects the territory. If I had the choice, I'd prefer not to be complicit with the forces that oppress you—if only you weren't complicit with the forces that oppose me."
