Dancer is trying to sell her broken car via social media. Yesterday she got this inquiry:
X: Hi, I am interested in your car.
D: Great! It’s not running but if you are handy, it needs x,y, and z. I am asking $400.
X: OK. But I need you to know I am transgender. Are you OK with that? What’s your phone number?
D: Sure, no worries. $400 and it’s yours. When would you like to come look at it?
X: I know my profile name is Brian but now I go by Rachel. Is that OK? What’s your phone number?
D: OK Rachel, when would you like to come see the car? It’s yours for $400 cash.
X: I am not sure. What’s your number?
D: Ok, think it over! Let me know if you decide when you want to see it.
(D wanted to say, but didn’t, that Rachel may want to update the profile name from Brian to the preferred name to eliminate such need to [over] explain.)
Bottom line, are you interested in buying a car, or just looking for… Not sure what that would even be?!?!??? Dancer was for sure NOT giving out her phone number to explore it further.
It was such a 2017 moment. Peak outrage culture? (We can only hope!)
