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.

It's like they know nothing about pedophiles. Those fuckers will play the LONG game, we're talking years. They'll date parents they have zero attraction to, train as coaches when they have no interest in the sport, become teachers, doctors....

Men absolutely will do this. If you (general you, not you-you) know anything about men, you know it to be true. "wouldn't go to the trouble/wouldn't really happen" - justification and trying to convince yourself when you KNOW there's something wrong here.

Fuck's sake.
