Actually there are quite a lot of us. If you really knew what you were talking about you would know that being transgender has nothing to do with the BDSM or being a furry. There is nothing wrong with those either and they have not been designated a pathology in any case.

And since you can name only one other misguided study about ROGD (not ROT), it tells me there is very little, if any, scientific basis for it. If you actually knew anything about it yourself you wouldn’t have written it wrong all through your response.

Since you have not established any science against being trans (while all American and most worldwide health organizations recognize transgender people and gender dysphoria) I take no stock in your statement that we some how ignore science and that somehow (magically?) that means transphobia is a slur.

It’s really very easy. If you don’t like or feel you have the right to criticize transgender people — especially when you have no idea what you are talking about — then you are being transphobic.
