  1. Don’t pathologise trans identity. However, you must offer treatment for gender dysphoria with medication and surgery.

  2. Only refer to people by language they want. However, it is fine for us to label you “cis”.

  3. The real self is fundamentally separate from the material body. However, transforming one’s body can be crucial for personal wholeness.

  4. Gender identity is a social construct. However, authentic identity may be attached to stereotypical male and female dispositions.

  5. People should be free to believe in what they want. However, you must see the world through our ideological lens.

  6. The trans community (1% of the population) must be listened to. However, the experiences of detransitioners (1% of trans community) should be ignored.

  7. Children should not be able to smoke, drink alcohol, vote or get a tattoo. However, they should be able to consent to potentially irreversible medication.

  8. You must understand us. However, you can never understand us because you haven’t had our lived experience.

  9. If the media report a crime and specify it was committed by a trans person, this is transphobia. However, reporting an accolade and failing to mention the person is trans is erasure.

  10. Be kind. However, it’s okay for us to throw slurs at those we disagree with.

There is no difference between trans women and cis women. However, cis women have privilege over trans women.

You literally cannot tell that someone is trans, ever. But trans women get murdered for being trans every day.

Lol. The second one kills me.

They are always trying to steal everything gay people say, because you can't really look at someone and know they're gay. People just assume you're gay if you're GNC. Trans saw that and then tried to apply it to transgenderism but it just . . . doesn't work.

They are like small children wearing Mommy's clothes. It's a poor costume that hangs off because it's too big. It's a lie.

Almost like they're just social parasites fighting for a homophobic, woman-hating, bullshit cause 🤔

Also: Gender is a spectrum. But you can also be non-binary (which, of course implies that it is binary and not a spectrum).

Oh, good one! I never even noticed that. There are so many contradictions in all this that any given one fails to stand out.

All animals people are equal non-binary but some are more equal special non-binary than others.

Having a female body does not make you a woman. But "identifying as a woman" means you are "female" (and often must change your body in an attempt to appear biologically female).

Sex is a spectrum because intersex people exist. However, you don't need to be intersex to identify as something other than your biological sex.

"You must understand us. However, you can never understand us because you haven’t had our lived experience"

Also, we understand you and we actually know better than you what it is to be you even though we do not have your lived experience.

Trans women have a universal lived experience that is distinct from female people, yet, there is no universal experience or socialization for female people and suggesting there is, is trans-phobic and harmful.

I would like to elaborate on 8 and 9:

  1. Children should not be able to smoke, drink alcohol, vote, get a tattoo, drive a car, rent a car, or gamble $1. However, they should be able to consent to potentially irreversible medication and surgery.

  2. You must understand us. However, you can never understand us because you haven’t had our lived experience. We don't need to understand women. However, we absolutely fully understand women anyway because we have had their lived experience because TWAW.

and add:

Children who say they are trans must be trans. However, girls who prefer traditionally male activities and clothing and say they are girls must not know what they're talking about.

You can't tell someone is trans just by looking at them. However, "cis" people can be easily identified as such.

I think 2 kind covers this, but

"Trans women are women at all times. There is no scenario in which their womanhood should be denied or disregarded. However, your womanhood is negotiable. You must be willing to put your womanhood aside in scenarios where it makes someone else uncomfortable, and settle for made-up, dehumanizing labels that do not accurately describe your identity"

a) “Puberty is an irreversible process. Trans children must be given puberty blockers as young as possible” b) “Transwomen should compete in women’s sport because after 12 months of estrogen their bodies become female and not male.” a) Women cannot be referred to as women because it makes trans men and non binary people dysphoric but.... b) transwomen are women because not calling them women makes them dysphoric.

a) “They just want to be their authentic selves” b) Being “authentic” requires ongoing hormone use, hair removal, genital reconstruction, breast augmentation, facial feminization surgery, voice modification therapy, etc.

a) Biological sex isn’t binary, b) and yet, it’s AMAB and AFAB.

Transmen” claim gender dysphoria causes them pain when hearing sexed terms like “breast-feeding”, yet not when actually breast-feeding.

Number eleven: In order to escape the gender binary, one can create a new non-binary/binary gender binary.

It all boils down to “Do as I say, not as I do.”

It just proves it's a religion.

I remember being confused in classes as a kid (I was raised Catholic): Everyone can go to heaven as long as they confess their sins, but also "It's easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God"
