Trans women aren’t women, and indigenous people aren’t indigenous. But they’re both people. So are white people. So are rich people. Start with that. And if you do, you’ll notice that all people get constipated, and when they’re not they get brown streaks in their underwear. It helps to keep that in mind when you’re fist-pumping against those evil fill-in-the-blanks. It wouldn’t go amiss either to remember that they love their children as much as you love yours.
Some people have rights, but no right is inalienable. Wars and famines take care of that. But if fill-in-the-blank is a right, rich people have as much right to it as poor people.
No two people are the same, and no two people get the same. These two observations have nothing to do with each other. In fact there’s no accounting for what each person gets. But whatever she gets she gives it up when she dies, and then someone else gets it. So by all means grasp, but don’t covet. That’s the only one of the Ten Commandments that’s not entirely vacuous.
Speaking of scripture, if you’re lucky you get your three score years and ten. There is no God to Whom those years are precious. There’s only you. So enjoy them. And, if you’re lucky, there’s your fun ones, in which case enjoy those years together.
Sugar and fat and salt taste good because for most of your evolutionary history they were both good for you and hard to come by. In much of the world they still are. But not where you live. Don’t think of it as a diet, any more than you think of not raping as contra natura. Just think of yourself as a different species, one that neither gorges nor rapes.
Max Ehrmann entitled his version of this the “Desiderata”. His and mine both say pretty much the same things, but mine is more poetic.
