He quotes statistics from an organization called Transphobia vs Transrespect, according to whom:

  1. 58% of murdered trans people whose occupation is known were sex workers
  2. Murders of trans people in the United States have doubled from last year; people of colour make up 89% of the 53 trans people murdered;
  3. 70% of all the murders registered happened in Central and South America; 33% in Brazil;

I'd really like to know how is it Macy Gray's fault that prostituted (and very likely trafficked) trans males are being killed in Central/South America.

So why don't we look at the problems with the "sex industry"? Racism? Wealth inequality?

TRAs always talk about being 'intersectional' and then go on to ignore the intersecting factors.

Exactly. TRAs always seem to rabidly support the sex industry and have little bad to say about the disgusting male johns who murder trans prostitutes, just as they murder women.

The favorite target for TRAs is not rightfully on violent men, but always seems to be on women who don’t tell them everything they want to hear in terms of “validation.” Look how they detest radfem lesbians in particular because they won’t play along with the transbian BS.

They only care about intersectionality when that means pandering to men and including them in women's spaces. Attempting an actual intersectional analysis might lead them to conclusions that don't fit their narrative, so it's best to avoid it.
