Trans People Are Silencing Our Perfectly Reasonable Views
- 2020-09-21 11:24 @TheFamousArtBR “I’m so proud of British women and how they’re speaking up for their rights even at the expense of their own personal safety, wellbeing, livelihood and reputations. All my life I’ve never felt comfortable with calling myself a WOMAN and now I couldn’t be prouder to be one.”

...and of course, if any of these accounts happened to be paid trolls, this fear of having their lives destroyed (
people in empowered groups decent, normal people can't rightfully put freaks and pervs in their place, amiright.)
Many of them are probably real people who have been convinced by the barrage of anti-trans BS that they need to be afraid to legitimately state their opinions – and perhaps some of those opinions are actually not toxic and misinformed (though the majority do seem to be).
...but I can't imagine that paid trolls aren't taking advantage of this perfect cover to amplify the message.
