Loving masochism

Daphne Maddox  
You say you’re offering the love you wish to offer, and doing it in the name of Christianity, but to not accept someone’s gender identity is to persecute their soul. There is nothing loving about torturing transgender people until they throw themselves in front of a truck! 
Stop loving people as you wish to love them. Just don’t do it. Love them as they ask, or if you can’t find it in your heart to do that, please just walk away and mind your own business. Lives are at stake here. I’d say you are playing with fire, but really your pouring gasoline on it. Just stop.
What if somebody’s a masochist. What if they suffer from deep self-loathing, and feel they deserve to be hurt. Would Daphne “love” them as they ask (by whipping them)? Or would she treat they as they ought to be loved, despite their request to be brutalized?

  1. Notice the highly charged and emotive language. Because people like Daphne don't have an actual argument they resort to raw emotionalism and attempted shaming. Typical.
