I think you misunderstood my intention with this article, because I am a trans activist myself. My focus was more in regards to “gender critical” people who somehow feel like they are going to be forced to date a trans person someday, which couldn’t be farther from the truth. Why would we want to date someone who has no interest in us?

Bottom line, gender critical people need to stop freaking out over the radical fringe within the trans community and open their eyes and see all of us. Most of us have no interest in forcing cishet people into dating us, or shaming them for not wanting to date us.
