Is the tide turning? Or is that subreddit just less likely to have woke people on it, since it's about speaking one's mind and not about being politically correct? They don't ban people for being GC in that sub, so obviously people feel more comfortable speaking out against trans issues there. But still... I feel like I'm seeing a lot more r*dditors speak out against these issues now (in the last few months), especially about women's sports. And like 95% of the time I see this, the gender critical comments are upvoted and TRAs are downvoted massively and mocked.

What do you think? (And outside of r*ddit, do you see more people discussing how harmful trans ideology is?)

My favorite comment on that thread, lol:

Transphobia isn't a real thing. It was literally made up to make people feel bad for using common sense.

😆

Nah, I think the comments on that thread are pretty reflective of the opinions of the general population of the US.

I used to have a job that required me to travel all around the US, to a lot of rural areas and work with a lot of regular working-class people of all races, so I think I got a good sense of what Americans who aren’t extremely online think. Most regular Americans especially on the younger end are pretty willing to respect transgender men or women at least as far as new names and pronouns (maybe not so much non-binary people because everyone can tell it’s ridiculous attention-seeking behavior) but that’s about it. They don’t support men in women’s sports, they don’t support all these ridiculous changes in language and they’re usually pretty angry when they find out about these things happening. All of these things are being pushed without a popular mandate.

It just goes to show how much TRA ideology has overstayed its welcome. If they had just stuck with the basics like asking people to use their new names or pronouns, they probably would’ve succeeded, but they’ve pushed for so much more and for increasingly ridiculous things that the house of cards is going to fall down.
