Misidentification Is A Serious Problem
There have always been issues, some tragic, with individuals’ self-image and self-identification, but this has seemingly degenerated in recent years to dangerous levels of pathology. This has been compounded by the recent trend by the Left to demand that that such misidentifications be accepted, condoned, and normalized.
Still though, even this societal disease pails in comparison to certain forms and specific expressions of misidentification, e.g, misidentifying Bill Nye as a scientist. It lends undeserved weight to whatever this mechanical engineer turned comedic / children’s actor says.
