So ever since I hit peak trans which was back in 2017, I've looked more into Trans ideology as well as reflecting on my own life as a feminine presenting gay man and how I was almost lead to believe that I may be trans because of my lack of interest in conforming to masculinity and I of course discovered how the ideology does not stand at all when you start asking the serious questions like defining women and men wihtout using social stereotypes or how intersex conditions are not trans or even the whole brain sex argument which is just based in wishful thinking and science fiction and finally the typology of AGP & HSTS coined by sexologist Ray Blanchard.
Indeed it has been an interesting but mind blowing ride learning all this but something I have noticed is how people can be with YouTube Blaire White (And Rose of Dawn). It really does seem like hese two get a lot of praise because they speak out against crazy TRAs and I think it's cool that they do but at the same time, I don't give them a pass aka just because they're not horrible TRAs doesn't mean I think they are any more of a woman than the crazy TRA typs. I still think that they are delusional men who clearly think that presenting the way they do which in my mind is just a blow-up doll looking aesthetic makes them women and because he "passes" (which is debatable since I've seen his unfiltered pictures).
Anyway I notice that whenever I talk about the trans issue and how I don't believe in it as well as how it's affecting women's rights with other people, especially gay people, whenever they bring up Blaire White and I call him by male pronouns, they get really upset with me. Like for example I recently got into it with my gay brother who is a huge Blaire White fan and he brought him up during a conversation we were having and when I called him by male pronouns, he got super pissy with me and said that I'm being a "rude asshole" by calling him by male pronouns and when I challenged him asking him how Blaire is a woman, he of course said "Because she looks like one" to which I responded with "Woman is not a look, it's not an identity nor is it a skinsuit you can just put on and just become. Women are Adult Human females, that's just the way it is". He then retailiated and asked if I would be offended if people called me a "Crossdresser" just because of my nonconforming look to which I just said "No I wouldn't since crossdressers aren't really calling themselves women just because they wear feminine clothes". Needless to say he's been giving me the silent treatment ever since that but it really got me thinking because it's not just him who gets bent out of shape when I call Blaire by male pronouns, I've gotten it from other people as well, even some "feminists" and I'm just bewildered.
Like I dunno, am I really in the wrong for not calling Blaire by female pronouns just because he's not a screeching TRA? Because to me, I still don't think Blaire or any other trans-identified man like him is actually a woman and I don't play fast and loose when it comes to this kinda thing anymore. And I was curious what you all thought. Do you think Blaire and people like him should get a pass when it comes to this kind of discussion?
