Ryan Anderson on being irenic

My entire life has been spent having people disagree with me, and, as you note, sometimes in less-than-charitable ways. Oh, the stories I could tell you about the nonsense I put up with in high school… . When you don’t grow up in a bubble, it makes talking to people outside of various bubbles that much easier, and more natural. I know from first-hand experience that most people are just badly misinformed; they’re not evil, they just don’t know what they don’t know. And so you can’t take any of their vitriol all that personally, or that seriously. All you can do is try to speak the truth in tones and terms that they can understand.

Ryan T. Anderson, author of When Harry Became Sally, a book on transgenderism that is, apparently, irrefutable: its critics are reduced to sputtering about the “transphobic” title.
