captured it perfectly. there has to be a line drawn and I had no idea we were this far gone that people would cowardly opine about whether this crosses it or not? what the fuck! trans people do not deserve to be grouped in with this!!

Maybe if you stopped calling us transphobes for 2 seconds and actually heard us out directly, you would have known this problem started years ago. We've given plenty of examples of harm because of the abuse of the law and you called us deranged. "This never happens." We told you that this is a predator's dream come true and you didn't believe us. Do you think we lock our doors because everybody is a thief? No. Criminals use opportunity. If there's a chance he won't be called out because people are afraid of being called a transphobe, then why not? In the mean time, by the time people get the courage to call him out, he'll leave a trail of victims.

“Men wouldn’t go to the trouble of identifying as trans to get into women’s spaces” is the common counter argument we’ve heard. You underestimate how far misogynistic porn sick men will go to satisfy their urges. And criminals generally don’t have a high iq, so they’ll go bragging about it online.

And it gets worse. This stuff wasn't called out on main stream media because it "might make the trans community look bad." By keeping silent, it gave the message that they were condoning it. Now here we are. The common population think it's transphobia to say no to anyone who identifies as trans, no matter how outrageous the act. They’re afraid of being lumped in with the right-wingers.

According to Stonewall’s trans umbrella cross dressers are trans, and anyone who says they are a woman is one.

If adults who have gender dysphoria want to be considered separate to the cross dressers, then they better start campaigning on behalf of single sex -the real meaning- spaces, services and against self ID, transing children and co-opting women’s language.

If it’s important to them to not be lumped in with the many predators like this teacher, then they can do something about that.

If they don’t, then they are the same as this predator. Because they are grooming kids just the same by prioritising their wrong sexed or plural pronouns over teaching kid’s that biological reality matters and kids have a right to boundaries, and a right not be used in predators fetish.

There are a couple of well know TiMs out there who do this to some extent (Yardley and the guy who was one of Maya’s solicitors), so it’s clearly possible for them to do this. So all those who don’t, clearly are opting to be under the same umbrella as this guy. Which makes them the same groomy predator. And no adult opts to be a predator unless they want to be one.
