I have always found it frustrating how TIMs (MtFs) will claim that they do not experience male privilege because when they are presumed to be male it is misgendering (which is a form of violence). However, most amazingly, I came across this post sharing this contradictory opinion from a TIM wherein he goes on about how he can't have male privilege because of misgendering etc etc but then actually admits that he sometimes lets himself pass as male (which is sooo horrible) for safety reasons. I really just feel like if we are at the point where these people are actually admitting that they have male privilege, while still denying it at the same time, we have certainly reached a level of La-La-Land ideology that is hopefully about to crack? Do you think people like this are hurting their cause, or do you think it makes no difference because people will just keep believing what they want to believe? I honestly just don't know. If you would like to see the post, here it is. This isn't the original post (it is someone who is critical of it), so clicking on it won't give any traffic to the dumbass who originally made the post.

Anyway, I am just looking for other opinions on where we are at in this whole debate, because when I see things like this I think we must be near the breaking point. But maybe not?

They're saying the quiet part out loud now, but I think we're too entrenched in gender ideology for it to matter. We see men who aren't even performing femininity claiming to be women, and people seem to just accept it, using preferred pronouns, etc. I wish I could have hope that the majority of people (or at least women, for goodness sake) would wake up and see gender ideology for the bullshit it is, but hope is hard right now.

Even if the vast majority of people see through the BS, it will be hard to push back against the powerful entities with a significant financial interest in creating life-long medical patients.

Srsly you get banned from reddit for misgendering a self ID tim rapist housed in a women's jail. It's absurd
