If you'd like to know anything about me, about who I really am as a person, I welcome you to reach out and speak to me one on one
If you'd rather keep misinterpreting or mischaracterizing things I've said or done, I welcome you to keep doing that. It's the trend around here, lots of fun.
I reflected long and hard on the wording I chose for my post. Did you read it?
To be clear, no, you are wrong. I have zero percent support for this person, I am disgusted by it all, and I was absolutely, unequivocally, not playing devil's advocate at all.
I am against transphobia, the end. I would also speak up similarly if someone picked out a black criminal and called them all slurs, or an Asian person, or if they tried to imply all disabled people were revolting freaks because a guy in a wheelchair committed a crime, or some other similar thing.
The summary of my post, to condense it down, would be "It is not right or fair to call all trans people revolting freaks when one of them commits a crime." Do you agree with that? Or disagree? That was the essence of my post. This is what I see on Twitter quite a bit, and it disgusts me. This shit is just the same as hating blacks or hating women or hating gays, it's just the most modern version of it.
If it's difficult for you to imagine these two conditions existing at once, "Being against a pedophile/child groomer" and "Being against transphobia" then that is your problem and not mine. But to clarify, you have made the wrong conclusion here. I'm just letting you know.
I'll add that funhaver is probably on the right track - if my post was attached to some random username, the reactions would not be the same. So I will take responsibility for making the mistake of posting on TFTV.
