Empathy for women has never been Caitlyn Jenner's strong suit. He frequently abandoned wives and children, and made Kim Kardashian keep his dirty secret for ten years. He made creepy jokes about going to the women's room, and dressed in his own daughters' cloths.

The one time he thinks of someone other than himself, George Takei decides to go on a big old cancel campaign on Twitter. He called Jenner "a menace" because Jenner was honest that males should not be in female sports.

If anyone is an authority on this issue, it's Caitlyn. At his peak, the world's best men literally could not surpass him. He was a wonder of physical fitness.

George Takei is 90 years old, so I don't know why he feels to be so woke on this issue. It's a young idiot's folly. Maybe in his old age he finds solace in being the internet's "wholesome, nice guy" but he looks sour and vicious now.

And that IS how Takei has stayed in the public eye over the years. By being an adorable, kindly old man. There's nothing wrong with that, except he's now shown how false that is.

He didn't go after Jenner just for being a Republican. He didn't even go after Jenner for killing a woman with his car. What really brought on Takei's fury was Jenner saying that men don't belong in women's sports.

Why can't Takei show some of that wholesome kindness to women? Maybe don't assume we're villainous? Women's sports will never overtake men's sports in terms of fame and money. So why can't we have them? They're no threat to you.

I know Takei called Caitlyn Jenner a menace, but I don't believe for a minute that's what he meant. I think he views US as the menace. He's just angry with Jenner siding with us.

Women are not a menace, George.

It wasn’t even that controversial. He just posted some tweets that basically implied the whole “pronoun check” culture is just performative wokeness and everyone came after him for “silencing the non-binary community” or something. He also collaborated with a TIF who’s a big proponent of transmedicalism, which states that only people suffering from gender dysphoria or undergoing surgery are truly transgender. At least that concept is a step in the right direction, or at least a step away from “trans as a trend” which is a lot more prevalent than the community wants to admit. So Contra didn’t even actually say that last part, just associated with someone who did, and got “cancelled.”

ETA: it’s really short sighted of them, considering ContraPoints is one of the most palatable and accessible public member of the trans identified community.

This twitter row over pronouns was very confusing to me when it happened. Why would this be such a controversial issue among the trans community. Nowadays I get it. Contrapoints really only complained about "pronoun checks" because as an AGP he gets "gender euphoria" when people refer to him as "she". If he has to request it, it's not the same thing. In contrast, for trans/nonbinary-identified women a "pronoun checks" is basically a request to be treated like men, which in a misogynistic society means fully human.

Yep, exactly. As with most trans issues, it was fueled by egocentrism. He doesn’t like pronoun checks because that implies people need to check his pronouns.
