Surprise! It's not some mildly clueless piece of advice I gave fifteen years ago. It's diatribe that is actually—and quite appallingly—transphobic and it went up at Thought Catalog yesterday. Parker Marie Molloy:
Thought Catalog published today a transphobic screed by VICE co-founder Gavin McInnes. The essay, titled, "Transphobia is Perfectly Natural," uses language more vile than even the most overt transphobes would dare print.... [McInnes mocks] trans people, writing, "We aren’t blind. We see there are no old trannies. They die of drug overdoses and suicide way before they’re 40 and nobody notices because nobody knows them. They are mentally ill gays who need help, and that help doesn’t include being maimed by physicians. These aren’t women trapped in a man’s body. They are nuts trapped in a crazy person’s body." Later, McInnes makes the case for discrimination. "By pretending this is all perfectly sane, you are enabling these poor bastards to mutilate themselves," he writes.
McInnes is a "literal pile of garbage and obvious clickbait zipped into a human suit," says riese & rachel at Autostraddle, and they have the quotes and links to prove it.
