As predicted even after she seemingly backtracked, TRAs are not forgiving as the title of this article displays:

Macy Gray Thinks People ‘Misunderstood’ Her Transphobic Comments. They Didn’t Macy, we all heard you loud and clear

Article is otherwise the usual religious lunacy, author is probably another young white straight wokebro (cause I didn't see any rainbows/pronouns in his bio) who enjoys shitting on women. As for the 2 TIMs mentioned, one was shot from up close and there's no suspect yet and the other was allegedly shot by a male acquaintance after they got into a dispute. I wonder how many black women were murdered in the past week? If you say men are not women you are contributing to the murders of trans identifyimg men (when in reality most of the times it has nothing to do with transphobia), but dehumanising women, acting like they don't even exist, ostracizing them for saying basic facts, removing their safe spaces, etc., that's perfectly okay.

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.
