I’ll only address the 5th point of your response because I have personal experience in that regard. I have, several times, been called a ‘traitor to my sex’ by people who self-identified as being members of the Gender Critical community. A couple of times in face-to-face confrontations, and a few times online. It may not be an openly held view by the GC community, but enough individuals clearly feel that way, if they consistently use that argument against my transitioning.
