My pet peeve: People demanding that they receive an apology when they've been wronged. An apology given merely to get someone else off my back or because someone coerced it out of me is no apology at all. Trust me and give me the chance to offer an apology freely. It will mean a lot more.

It's the mentally ill attempting to insult the mentally healthy by calling them 'sane'. There are a lot of other examples of this particular phenomenon.
"April is the cruellest month, breeding
lilacs out of the dead land, mixing
memory and desire, stirring
dull roots with spring rain."
-T.S. Eliot

Plus in that instance they can't even be consistent. They say gender is a social construct, which means gender has no reality outside social convention, but then they try to claim that such and such got assigned the "wrong" gender at birth, as if it's possible to talk about right or wrong gender before socialization has had a chance to occur.
