Dear hiring committee members,

Your insistence that you are "not hiring for any tenure track positions in bioethics at the moment," is an interesting opening gambit in our negotiations, and I applaud your persistence on this point after so many emails

My counter-offer, that you are indeed hiring a tenure track professor and compensating very generously, remains firm, however I am willing to haggle over the following minor points ...

Covid-19, being trans 

The place where I live is in line for Lockdown II due to Covid-19 case numbers.

It means I have a question to answer fairly quickly - do I stay here and get locked down, or do I go and stay with my parents and stop expressing myself gender-wise indefinitely? My mum is a TERF and does not tolerate any kind of femininity from me. I don't really have anywhere else to go - it's Lockdown II or Parents' House.

Advice? Boost if you want.

Me: Basically, the premise is, What if they just never stopped committing crimes against straight people, ever
