Tell them that by their logic lesbians are from the Isle of Lesbos, gay people are really happy people, heterosexual means attracted to different genders (that is more than one) because it comes from the Greek “heteros” meaning “different” or “other”.

Then tell them that both heterosexuals and homosexuals are transphobic because they are only attracted to genders within the gender binary (which isn’t even necessarily true btw) and that only pansexuals cannot be transphobic because they are attracted to everything, including innanimate objects and philosophical concepts, I mean everything means EVERYTHING you’re not a real pansexual otherwise!

Then say that transphobic is the literal fear of trans people and we should be kind because they can’t help having a phobia, it’s not like it’s a system of oppression that trans people that is composed of more than etymology, that would silly and counterproductive!

And finally tell them that pineapples are apples that grow on pine trees because words are literal and never change over time or with context.

Then take a dictionary, burn it in front of them and chant “where is your word god now?!”*

Oh dear!  Just wait until they find out the shocking news that Jellyfish AREN’T actually Fish and that they AREN’T made out of Jelly either!!

Yes yes yes

There should also be commentary on driving on parkways, parking on driveways, and the inherent contradiction in jumbo shrimp.
