Transphobia literally means the unreasonable fear towards all trans-people. What it does not mean is what the left is trying to corrupt the term into: any dislike or prejudice of any trans person or policy. Someone not liking any perv being able to claim they associate as a woman to use the bathroom with their little girls or wives is not necessarily transphobic. Nor is one that has a problem with M2F trans athletes destroying Women's sports necessarily a transphobe. There's nuances and complexities that are beyond the willingness of activists to explore, when you give them the cudgel of political correctness and a hate-label.
Disagreeing with any trans-activist.
|With no trans-people ever causing a problem, North Carolina is such a bunch of rednecked-bigots, that they invented a law to ban trans-people from using the restroom, they need to be more tolerant towards LGBT culture... like San Francisco. Which still has hypocritical laws against bath houses and oral sex. Also, being male has no advantages in women's sports.||After multiple abuses by creeps exploiting trans-friendly laws in other cities (and no cases of local abuse against Trans folks), Charlotte activists ignored warnings and passed a law saying creepy guys could use Women’s bathroom. The State overrode that dumb local ordinance by saying trans-people had to legally change their gender on their drivers-license/birth certificate before they got a free pass, and private companies could do what they wanted.|
The definition comes from:
- Trans (Transexual) -- a person whose gender identity is different than the genitalia and chromosomes they were both with
- Phobia -- an exaggerated usually inexplicable and illogical fear of a particular object, class of objects, or situation
Those trying to extend the word into any prejudices, or policies are really stretching the word beyond reasonable bounds. Are transexuals automatically cis-phobic if they don't agree with every policy or person who is straight? Stay reasonable. Leave room for disagreement without everything being a phobia.
But there's a lot of policies and high profile examples where the trans-activists have taken issues a bit too far. Just because you're trans (or trans-activists) doesn't make you wrong... but it certainly doesn't make you automatically right either: Trans : 10 items
