@freshbox The logic above is not dependent on God's gender. So same logic applies.

God could have never been cisgender, because that would required them to have a gender assigned at birth. No birth --> no gender assigned at birth --> not cis.

God has always been, and still is, either trans or agender.

There is the danger that such a reframing would further contribute to the harmful idea that remote employees are "less than" or somehow more expendable or less human than folks that you see every day. πŸ€”

I complain sometimes that the local Flora is trying to kill me. But maybe it's worth it?
