Trump said that he declassified the confidential documents found at his golf course "with his mind". This claim is being rightfully condemned as utterly risible. Anyone here, try ignoring the tax man and then telling the auditor that you already filed your taxes "with your mind." Or ignore jury duty, and say that you already served on the case and concluded the verdict "with your mind".
How is this any different from TRAs and their "self-ID" or "gender soul" concept that they claim exists "in the mind"? And which is uncritically embraced by nominal progressives as an empirical fact? Shouldn't both claims be rejected as ridiculous?
Trump is an idiot, but I don't understand why his clownish illogic is regarded as clownish illogic, while TRA clownish illogic is accepted without proof. Not just by Internet trolls but scientific journals and the law. Plus, if their specious claims of an "internally felt gender" exist "in the mind", then why do they need to change official documents at all?
