I'm sure all 5 users of that sub are pissed.

I used to wonder how long the sub could last with how few active users it appeared to have. A lot of users here on SaidIt are anti-LGB, so it seemed that it would be hard for them to grow their userbase.

It seemed to be one of the more active subs on Saidit -- at least a lot more active than s/news.

Only used to be a few. I think you'd find most of us were formal liberals who believed in the cause at one point. It just didn't work well, we're seeing that now, and it's just a natural reaction. Probably will be a fairly mainstream opinion soon.

It's a cycle, happens every few decades. It has all happened before and it will happen again. Wait long enough and we'll swing back the other way.

True. I used to be for trans rights until children and teens started being told "oh you are sort of different...you are trans/non-binary and must take hormones and have surgery!"

Also that idiot dizzy drag queen Ru Paul claiming that drag queens, female/male impersonators are trans, promoting child drag queens, etc.

Or the revisionist history about the Stonewall demonstrations, it was not started by transwomyn of colour, nobody who is trans was there or a part of it, most POC LGB people were deeply closeted, and not out but it was like this for most non-POC LGB people as well then, and I know multiple people who were at the Stonewall demonstrations and the people there were gay, bisexual, and lesbian but not trans at all.
