It is the height of irony that I missed this thread, because I was dealing with the real-life drama of getting disowned by family for being transgender, i.e. recently being homeless again. And the added layer of irony, that I brought up the topic later last year, and it was conveniently downed out by the white mask losers pretending to care about social justice (SQ being one prime example).

Guess they thought I was just making it up to be funny. Which is ironic, because it is an actual alt-right talking point that people supposedly choose to be transgender because it is a trend.  ::)

very sorry for your struggles.  If there is a way we can help please let us know.
I disavow anyone in the movement involved in any illegal,unethical, sexist, or racist behavior. However, I don't have the energy or time to investigate each person and case, and a lack of individual disavowals for each incident should not be construed as condoning such behavior.

It's been awhile; which specific scientifically testable claims are we talking about?

A big takeaway from my experience is that being transphobic is very strongly correlated with being low class. Basically, being low class means being consumed by self-limiting hate, which is almost always primarily or secondarily about sex/gender.
