That last quote annoys me. Being against gay marriage because you find it icky is apparently the same as believing the truth that someone who is male is still male no matter how much surgery they have. I'm thrilled with the outcome but come on, what are these judges thinking?

Exactly. It's not the same basis of comparison.

Biology is a fact. If someone wants to go against that and state otherwise, everyone should be entitled to have their own opinion about it and to be able to express it freely, specially females considering how much they suffer in patriarchal society on the basis of biological differences. Misogyny isn't gone just because people are obsessed about new forms of oppression, specially "transphobia", thus a correct statement about the Maya situation should've acknowledged that. Women are the ones loosing their jobs over gender critical views, why is that? Why are they the ones threatened by their views, in comparison with men holding the same beliefs?

Instead of acknowledging all that, they decided to present her situation as someone that dislikes a "minority", like someone that dislikes homossexual relationships. It's a false analogy, as people being gay have literally no impact whatsoever in broad concepts in society and do not threat female rights in any way.
