This writer really thinks trans people should be allowed to completely erase their past, and any reminder of who they used to be is “violence” - does any other group do this?

… no matter how much progress one makes in their transition, the person they used to be (or pretended to be) is still there.

Isn’t this true of literally everyone?

Anyway the writer still doesn’t get it - they think we respect some “gender identities” but not others (spoiler: we reject them all!). Re Chelsea Manning

… all too often her crimes have invalidated her womanhood for her critics.

No, Manning’s being male did that. Lots of people will use preferred pronouns with people they respect, out of courtesy, but not those they don’t - not a difficult concept.

Gotta love the closing line:

Chelsea Manning is a woman… Caitlyn Jenner is a woman… Neither of these statements is conditional.

Neither statement is accurate either.

Criminals?

(Funny how much overlap there is between “criminal” and “TIM”.)
