They do, trust me, they deserve to have the best possible lives they can and to be loved like, and maybe more, than any other human being. And I bet non of them claims that there aren't differences between men and women or that you people need to use their pronouns. I imagine they make an effort to present themselves as women and most people are fine with it because, well, most people are nice. Gender dysphoria is a real condition that deserves comprehension.My transgender friends are old… and therefore pretty tired of how their decades of struggle to be accepted has been co-opted into the culture and identity wars.
They just want to live peaceful, bigotry free lives, and have no interest in trying to redefine what basic human biology is. Nothing about the current trans lobby helps them. Nothing. And I despise that lobby for creating that environment, because they’re lovely people and don’t deserve it
These trans-activists online are not the average transperson and most people unfortunately don't understand it since they've never been exposed to any kind of "normal" transperson. They see this weird bearded dudes telling women to suck their dicks, they see someone with anime avatar, trans flag, they/them pronouns and some marxist/antifa reference in their bio and assume that's what trans is all about. And that's because, for those people, it's an identity to wear instead of a real condition. It's a power play, and you can see that in most progressive activism. We went from "accept me for who I am" to "comply or you will be punished". How people think this ends well is beyond me.
The fact I am on the left and these people are supposed to be my team makes it hurt even more
