I posted this Tweet before:
This is a popular talking point, that if you don’t affirm transgender children’s gender and promote their transition, you are literally killing them by driving them to suicide.
Now consider that in the context of these passive-aggressive threats.
If stopping kids from transitioning is killing them, then that’s a threat to their lives, a threat they feel is justified countering with violence.
The rhetoric only becomes more aggressive after that.
See, if you even question transitioning, you deserve violence for being a transphobe.
My tinfoil hat is telling me that the weird reaction to the Nashville school shooting is to push the Overton Window to the point where when a trans person or ally kills a “transphobe” it’s justified.
They have to murder you to save the trans children from your forcing the trans children to kill themselves.
