In almost every gender article in the New York Times there are a few emotionally unhinged TiMs. I've seen this dude several times and now he is losing his mind that some readers worry over kids making decisions over gender identity. The NYTimes is pretty tight over what comments they allow, but, again, nothing but total affirmation is acceptable.
Behold, the trans toddler:
Ann Onymous The Untied Status of America
Yes, there is controversy about some of these issues WITHIN the trans community, the scientific community, the medical community, and the psychological community. And do you know what all these people have in common? They are all educated on the issues. When they have opinions, those opinions matter.
However, all of these other folks - the armchair anti-trans keyboard warriors who FREQUENTLY and REPEATEDLY express the same tone-deaf "honest concerns" that seem immutable (impervious to fact) - 90% of the people who regularly show up in these comments sections? Their "honest concerns" (a.k.a. propaganda and gaslighting) are wholly unhelpful, and indeed harmful.
Only in yesterday's public commentary conflagration over trans issues, one poor woman who had lost her 18 year old trans daughter to suicide was pleading that these comments just STOP. Because this sort of ignorance and hatred, thinly veiled as "honest, compassionate concerns," was likely part of what drove her daughter to suicide.
NYT, this has to STOP! There should be no more comments on transgender articles. Your comments sections on these articles serve only as a venue for hate propaganda. It costs lives. My people are under assault from all corners of society, and we are dying. Dying!
And please do not reject my comment about this issue, the way you usually do. It needs to be said. NYT needs to take responsibility and DO BETTER.
