Am I transphobic? No, not by any standard definition. A phobia is an unreasonable fear. I know a couple of trans persons, and I'm not afraid of either of them, I hope they work through their issues and wneb I'm with them, I try to be kind and gentle.
If we made a Venn diagram with trans people in one bobble, and crazy people with gun in the other bubble, there would be some overlap. Those are the people I am truly concerned about. Mental patients with guns is never a good overlap. I do not think that is an unreasonable concern.
As a percentage of the US population, there's not that many trans folks.
Crazy enough to murder someone is a very small subset of that.
The person most at risk of a transsexual with a gun is themselves. Suicide is all too common.
One suspects that what's wrong in their wiring is simply being expressed as transsexulity and the trans part is just a symptom and not the actual condition.
Compassion is in order.
Could it be that trans-people are actually true bi-sexuals, confused by it, and think that somehow they "are in the wrong body"?
I'm all for compassion and help and treatment...until they walk into a school with a gun and start shooting.
They all appear crazy.
I would say insane asylum is the answer.
