After the Club Q shooter was revealed to be nonbinary, the usual suspects on TIM activist twitter have been screeching about it all day, and it's SO fucking incredible to watch how their desperate arguments are immediately negated by their OWN ideology.

"Why would a trans person attack a queer bar?" Why do so many transwomen kill women, then, if being part of a group should automatically include not killing people of that same group?

"He's just identifying as NB for less serious charges!" Oh but I thought that it was impossible and "never happens" that anyone would identify as trans for a lighter sentence. Don't y'all argue that trans people are MORE persecuted in law? Why would NB grant him privilege if you don't admit that trans people are a protected caste?

"It's suspicious that this only came out after the shooting!" But we're not allowed to question the hundreds of transwomen who miraculously discover their gender identity after being charged with crimes?

"He was identifying as a man two years ago!" And Dylan Mulvaney was a man 200 years ago. Does that mean he's not valid?

And all of their arguments can simply be shut down by their own beloved mantra: "trans people are who they say they are."

We're only following the rules YOU have set out. In accordance with your ideology his gender identity must be respected no matter his crime, misgendering him is just as bad as the crime, and his self identity is 100% valid regardless of literally anything.

The schadenfreude watching them have to face the inanity and illogic of their own ideology is delicious.

So true! TIMs hate me because I'm the demographic they want to be hooking up with (feminine female lesbian) and I obviously won't, and they equally hate my butch wife because "she isn't even trying to look female" and still looks 1,000x more like a woman than they ever will. I had a TIM scream in my face in a lesbian bar one time after telling him I didn't want him to buy me a drink because I was on a date, he flew off the handle about how "you lesbians reject me for looking like a man, and then go and date a woman who looks like a man!" He was really losing his shit, but fortunately this was pre 2015 when TIPs gained immunity from all consequences of their actions, and the bar tender intervened.

What the fuck is the matter with that clown? What could be more stereotypically male than reacting like that to being told "no thank you, I'm with my partner literally right now"?

That's a legit incel --> trans case, clearly. Bless that bartender. I want to believe it would still happen these days but who knows. Maybe the whole crowd would gather around and chant "cotton ceiling must be breached"

I'm sure today if someone came up and asked him what happened and he said "transphobia" I'd be the one kicked out and blacklisted, even though I never said the word "trans" or anything about his looks at all. That's what happens on the "lesbian" dating apps these days. That bar is explicitly a "queer" bar now.
