I wouldn't bother trying. Their main point of view is that you'll always be wrong anyway.

Or it’ll change once you get it - something else will come along

Is it not just a fad, like gin, the Charleston, or bell-bottoms ?

I followed Linehan on Twitter for a while because I thought he would be funny, but no...he's just a massive bellend.

I think it's always a good idea to fight against that sort of faux-weary obstinate/incurious/lazy/willfully ignorant attitude that sometimes comes with age. It's not that complicated.

Oh and while I am at it would anyone be able to tell me why LGBT includes the T word?

I get that they are genetically challenged, but are not Lesbian, Gay, or Bisexual. Fkn baffled at the way Trans have infiltrated. But there we are.
That has become such an alphabet soup I bet even people in the gay community can't even keep track of it all. So the rest of us don't have much of a chance.

There can sometimes be an attitude of "I'm wise enough, I don't need to learn new things".

I'm guessing that the gay community have no time for trans in that moniker.

But to be fair, in the era of equality does anyone have to be a member of the Gay Community anymore anyway?

The Trans thing boils my blood though. It is really a non issue for most people, but they seem to want it to be a big thing. Otherwise who really cares unless the mad ones infiltrate opposite sex spaces just because they feel they can?

The world is gone mad for a tiny minority.

What new things do they need to learn?

They don't 'need' to learn anything new, but it makes life less bewildering if you make half an effort.
