I don’t care who you are or what you claim to be; you should never be a jerk. It’s not nice, and it’s not helpful.
When someone is a jerk, it just makes everything that much more difficult and harder.
This leads us to a video taken at LaGuardia International Airport in New York. City. It opened with a male’s voice accusing a female of “misgendering” him by addressing him with male pronouns.
Whatever was taking place, it led the gate agent behind the counter to get involved.
Below is a transcript:
TRANSGENDER PERSON: And what about when a Delta employee misgenders you intentionally?
AGENT: I’m so sorry mam (addressing someone else), while he’s talking, you’re talking over she, him.
TRANSGENDER PERSON: You just misgendered me again, multiple times, both of you have.
AGENT: It wasn’t intentional, but if you want to take it personally, that’s also okay.
TRANSGENDER PERSON: Well, she did do it intentionally, twice.
WOMAN: I did not do it intentionally.
AGENT: You’re talking to me too.
TRANSGENDER PERSON: You said she and then you said he.
AGENT: You’re being condescending, and if you want to continue, I have full authority to escort you out of the building if you want to play that game with me. Would you like to continue three days before Christmas. I really don’t mind?
TRANSGENDER PERSON: I’m good, I’ll just put this on.
The agent was clearly trying to be as professional as possible and remember his job was to get the plane loaded quickly and safely.
It has now been learned that the transgender person in the video is trans activist and “influencer” Tommy Dorfman.
Dorman is now causing the Delta employees of “transphobia,” describing their “misgendering” as a “human rights violation.”
“When you try to advocate for yourself at @delta and are met woth [SIC] even more transpbobia [SIC] and threats of being arrested at LaGuardia [SIC],” Dorfman said in the post, which included the video of part of the incident. “Tristan, the employee, said he was fine with me posting this. didn’t realize it was condescending to flag a human rights violation after another employee misgendered me incessantly.
What we don’t know about is the controversy between Dorfman and the Delta employee. Of course, Dorfman only uploaded a brief clip of the confrontation, so why not upload the entire video so we can see what really happened?
Additionally, Dorfman has taken down the video.
