I absolutely refuse to buy into the cis/trans bifurcation. By my definition the only authentically transsexual people are those one in 30,000 who meet the qualifications for reassignment surgery,and they aren’t “non-binary,” they want to flip one one side of the binary to the other.

It so happens I’ve known three of these, dated two of them, and none of them wanted anything to do with the pronoun horseshit nor did they identify with any artificial enclave community. They had their own problems. Real ones.

The abbreviation to trans removes the important distinction between transsexuals and transvestites, the latter of whom are nothing but people with savagely hypertrophied needs for special attention.

Gay people have fought long and hard for our political gains and the T people in the acronym have been no help at all, just piggybacked along for the ride.

Go ahead, tell me I’m celebrating the murder if “trans-” people.
