nonsensical, transmisogynstic and appropriating our experiences and language

Nah, this is a troll. I refuse to believe anyone could be that lacking in self awareness

Don't be so sure about that. One of the stock "discussion" tactics is to throw out a bunch of $5 words and turns of phrase, in effort to overwhelm any attempts at forming a coherent rebuttal. Because if you don't address each and every single convoluted point that they raise, you're obviously cherry-picking and arguing in bad faith, and can therefore be safely ignored (after being labeled a bigot, naturally).

Heck, it's even shocking they do that, since the argument falls to "I am what I say I am", and anything else can be boiled down to that. No matter what proof you give otherwise, "I am what I say I am" trumps all of them. Just by them saying they are what they say they are, there's proof that's completely inarguable in their claim- you don't have telepathy, you can't conclusively say they're lying about saying they are this. And once they added "just saying it makes you one of us"- even if you DID have telepathy and can say "You're lying and I can prove you're lying about being in this group", it also comes to "but I say I am, so I am what I say I am", so the argument is lock-tight.

Hard to say because people use arguments like this.I swear how is the trans movement not dead yet when this whole ideology is so confusing as to what exactly it is to be both trans and a woman?
