And, I understand how you might think the rising awareness of Trans people is related to the “social climate”… because it is…! Unlike the silence they’ve kept for centuries, Trans people are no longer afraid to reveal their true identity and desires, or to share their transitioning experiences publicly. In part, because of how liberating it is in “really being themselves”, as well as educating society on the realities of their communities! However, I’ll disagree that the increasing voice of the LGBTQ community is an effort by anyone to “shove it in our face”!
As for your claim that it “seems fishy” that Trans people were not a “movement” prior to 2016. Actually… they were! Unfortunately, that "movement" was for society to pretend they didn’t exist, insisting they were some sort of perverts for being who they are! If there is any politicizing of the issue… it’s not about the LGBTQ community itself… it’s to bring the blatant discrimination and violence they experience to the forefront so it can be called out for exactly what it is! That’s not politics… it’s humanity!
And that’s my suggestion to you… To start viewing Trans people not from a political “us vs them” point of view… But rather… as “people”… from a humanitarian point of view!
