who's upset? not me.
we're just having a discussion.
you just got finished accusing me of assuming things I couldn't know about your tone or demeanor.
now you're assuming things that you couldn't know about mine
do you really not get it?

|How is it that you know why I said what I said, what tone I used and how I knew how the transsexual would react?|
this is totally missing the point.
you knew this person was a transexual.
you must know that being a transexual is unlike being any other class of minority. for a variety of reasons.
and when you decided to crack wise, your choice of words included "a smack in the face of nature" and "I will kill them on the spot."
I don't care how you said it. did you honestly believe they would just chuckle along with you? or know that you were joking?
the only way I can see that happening is if the tranny was also your best friend and knew you very personally and knew beyond the shadow of a doubt that you were only kidding.
I don't see how you can possibly be surprised at being disciplined.
you said this in the workplace. not at the bar during happy hour.
|who said I'm blaming anyone for anything?|
"I was disciplined for sexism by my male boss. It's ridiculous. Sexism is a lot of sh*t. An excuse to keep the man down."
that's you making excuses and not blaming yourself for your blunder.
