Tempted to set a "remind me about this in five years" alert that will resend this email chain to both of us.
A few things that strike me about this. My second-to-last letter contained 11 questions for her. Not only did she not answer any of those questions, she didn't have a single question for me.
She can't even permit me to have genuine (but misguided, etc.) concerns. Why is that?
She effectively says: Every time you try to talk to me about this I will donate a huge amount of money to the exact cause you're warning me about, so don't talk to me or you're funding/furthering the cause you're warning me about.
*The letter I sent first had 34 questions from me about various features of trans activism and gender medicine. Her response to that letter = zero questions, zero answers.

OK, this is petty but I think about it every Thanksgiving 😂. A few years back, my ex-friend tried (without success) to shame me for spending Thanksgiving with my family. Because, you see, *she* had spurned her elderly parents' pleas for a family holiday.
They offered to do land acknowledgments, talk about the dark side of US history, the works. But nothing could placate my friend, who kept her husband and new baby away and made her parents feel awful for expecting they'd get together for a "genocidal holiday."
So, what did she do instead? Well, she said she invited a few friends over and made dinner: "Next year we might volunteer."

Again, there's a name for what @stonewalluk's doing here: it's called phobia indoctrination and manipulative groups (often referred to as cults...) use it to control vulnerable members. #TDOR #tdor2021
Here's what phobia indoctrination looks like in the trans community:
- Telling community members that anyone who questions gender identity or transition (even if from a place of genuine care and concern) hates them, 'denies their existence,' or even wants them dead.
This pushes community members, especially vulnerable kids just learning how to navigate the world, to cut themselves off from friends and loved ones who may question or contradict the trans community.
