I don't want to flippantly generalize, but it's just mind-boggling to me that 90% of TIMs I come across are prostitutes, at least here in Argentina. They normalize it so much, too. One of them is running for a place in congress here in my city and his campaign motto is "TRANSform reality." He's also a "proud puta & peronista." Like, seriously? If I ever ran for office and people found out I'd ever engaged in prostitution, even if because I had no other option and because I was so poor and desperate, they would viciously attack me and never take me seriously in my life. But TIMs are mostly prostitutes even though they don't really need the money, and have other sources of income. Fetish much? How come they are overwhelmingly involved in SeX WoRk but they're never trafficked and kidnapped just like we "vagina people"?

If TRAs really cared about murdered TiMs, they'd go after the pimp lobby, not feminists.

Also, are peronistas right-leaning? If I recall correctly, Juan Peron was friendly with the Nazi regime.

This left me super confused. I'm not Argentine, but I'm from nearby, and here the right wing keep using Argentina and Peronistas as prime examples of how "communism" can destroy a country. I'd love to hear from an Argentine what's actually happening there because no information I get here is reliable.

Peronismo IS confusing. Think of it a lot like Maoism (for some reason it reminds me of it). The ideology is supposed to be socially progressive but Peron was quite authoritarian. Like the Democrats in the US, Peronists here are supposed to be the most left-leaning government we could realistically have, and they run wild with all the TRA stuff. Just a few months ago they came up with "X gender" IDs. Total clown BS to ingratiate themselves with the young. (And even then, "enbys" had the nerve to complain and say "We're more than an X!" Fucking lol).

The US national transgender discrimination survey reported about 20% claimed to be or were "sex workers".
