Well out of the three of us at least we know which one can spell. And it's not me.

I'm just a fan-girl but don't let that interfere with your perving.

What exactly is a 'trans activist' in the context of how Leslie and co. in this thread are posting? I see a lot of trans allies, of which I am one, but not an awful lot of people running around telling everybody they have to be trans, or they already are trans. Kind of a weird take, but whatever. You do you.



0.6% of the population are coming for us. Ahhhhhh, run for the hills.

They're coming from the hills.

Run away from the hills. If you see hills, run the other way.

This is the libbiest of lib takes, but you're way off the mark pinning this on progressives or leftists. Idpol is firmly the territory of neoliberalism and the right. Idpol is what gave us Trump because everyone was fixated on getting the first female president, even if she was an absolute damp dishcloth of a candidate. Idpol is what's going to give us Trump in 2020 if we end up with Liz or even worse somehow Mayo Pete gets the nomination because god forbid the only person who can fix the mess that is America just happens to be an old, white guy (this one time anyway ).

This isn't about 'intersectional rights', or identity politics. This is about the fact that trans- people are people, and that's the end of the story. They deserve to be accepted and normalized in the same way any of the rest of us do. As Watchpost said above - trans rights are human rights. It's an additive process, their rights don't take away anyone else's and I can only speak for myself but all I want is for them to be included, not sidelined. People are killing themselves over this, why is it so hard to get your head around it?
I'm getting bored of making the disclaimer that I don't have a probem with trans people, I've made the point several times on the thread. So you all can virtue signal as much as you like, and I'll join that ride, as I totally accept that some people have gender dysphoria and want to transition, and many do. I've met trans people, and they are just people to me, although I have a bit of sympathy for their predicament / mental state, whatever you want to call it. Some activists will take issue with even that position, claiming that there is no mental state, and in my view that's a demial of reality.

The 'shadowy activists' are in the universities. Students and faculty. The kind of folk that are so radicalized in their beliefs that if a big hairy bloke with bits claims to be a woman, and wants join say a woman only cruise. They will defend his/her/whatever rights and call anyone who raises doubts some kind of transphobe. It seems like there are a few extreme thinkers like that on this thread. The political element arises because the argument then goes beyond whether there is any gender dyspohira, to simple the right to assert any position no matter how counter-intuitive.

Finally, I am not happy with the idea (trend) whereby the acceptance of trans rights has reached a point where many are un-critical about whether someone has gender dysphoria or not. If a pre-puberty child claims gender dysphoria, there are bound to be some that encourage the thinking. Granted there are checks and balances in psychiatry, but nevertheless there are radical thinkers who will indulge the childs thoughts simply because they are so open to trans humanism. My point is that society should remain cautious about this kind of movement, move slowly, and see how the people who are trans have fared over there lives.

That's not to deny anyone who has generder dysphoria consideration. There are people on the right who totally reject the gender hypothesis and focus purely on biological sex. I think we have to give people who genuinely and seriously claim gender dysphoria a duty of care and help them transition. But I don't see celebrating trans life in the same we (recently) tend to celebrate gay lifestyle as prudent.
