There are currently 3 major factors hindering the progress of #transgender acceptance:

1. People have been spoon-fed too much misinformation about us, most of which originated from #radfem circles -- no surprise here -- and then got picked up by conservative media. (1/4)
2. Too many writers would rather engage in pseudo-philosophical debates on whether trans women are "categorically female" while ignoring the rich ethnocultural data about the societal roles found in various cultures analogous to what the West now dubs "trans women". (2/4)
3. Trans activists also have themselves to blame by focusing on the messy, unfalsifiable "gender theory" instead of practicalities -- like how transition usually takes years of intensive resocialization and how HRT transforms us physically, psychologically and sexually. (3/4)
To counter this negative trend, we need to distance ourselves from 3rd-wave feminists and rebuild our discourse around solid science and *our* lived experiences rather than *their* postmodernism-derived theoretical framework, which only serves to confuse people. (4/4)
