I love dogs.
If you don't like dogs, it's ok for me as long you don't get out of your way to communicate how disgusting dogs are.
But it might make things between us more complicated should we want to be friends, as I like going on hikes with the dog in my free time and the dog lives in our house and will we there when you visit.
So try to tolerate the dog.

And btw I'm over people hating on children or talking how stupid it is to have children and so on. It's been overdone.
You don't want children? Good for you. Don't have children. I will not try to change your mind.

Hennessy has been very cool and chill about pronouns in the past so it seemed to me Chemda was getting a bit overly sensitive about the review on his behalf.. especially because you know it was written with the best of intentions. He doesn't know you.. I mean, if there was no conversation about gender (and why would there be) you know people are just going to go with what they see.

He has had a very good attitude about it in the past and I think that is so important if your goal is to inform and get people on your side. There's a whole massive population of center thinking people who you will lose from your side the moment you get overly sensitive.

I don't hate your life Apia. You and your life sound nice to me. But then I don't live in New York so I'm not sure this means anything and then again what do I really know about Apia not like I REALLY know you. I also haven't heard this episode yet. That guy at google shouldn't have been fired he should be held up as the next Einstein. So, let me mansplain this more so all the women know they are inferior to men, I'm a man and I need my voice heard. (Did you get it?)

Eric,

I said it because it was what Hennessy expressed to me. He was dejected by the experience. I don't think I was expressing much more than the fact that it's a shame and it's part of what makes it hard for him to socialize.

I was sharing the experience. In it, there's disappointment. That's ok.

Parents

Keith I TOTALLY understand when you talk about how your parents refuse to answer a simple question about your ethnicity and where your ancestors come from etc. I think rational people have a hard time understanding how you can't extract info from other seemingly rational people. My mom is exactly the same way, vague and weird about answering any questions.

This morning I texted her asking her the poll question you suggested: "Hey mom, did you ever have to threaten someone on my behalf when I was growing up, adult or child, for my safety or otherwise? Just curious, part of a podcast poll. Something I could kind of imagine you doing."

This text convo spanned 15 texts over about a half hour with me asking the question four different ways and getting answers like "I'm sure your stepdad wouldn't have. You have to be careful." And "I don't remember, everything before breakfast is a blur." THIS IS MY WHOLE LIFE and why I know only what I specifically remember. So frustrating.

Wasn't the guy who wrote the review a listener of the show? In that case there's really no excuse for it.

I realize people are very sensitive about things nowadays, but there's a limit to how long you can pretend to not get it or be ignorant. If this was the first few times Hennessy explained his situation to us, I'd have a different opinion. But it's not. If the reviewer didn't know about Hennessy being a man, then..well...the review sucks but it's not really their fault.

Side note: some people specifically want a man or a woman to watch their animals. Hopefully there's a way to specify that in the app, or I suppose Hennessy could explain the discrepancy in person between the review and that he's actually a "he," if needed.

I had the feeling and seem to recall episodes that told us that Hennessy was unhappy about being misgendered which duuuuhhh of course you'd be mad about that but he might try and put a brave face.

So either that person was not as big a listener as they pretended or it's willful ignorance. Either way it's rude.
