Save the emotional blackmail. That card's been over played. And you've already made it clear that your compassion and support is limited to a select few -- and won't even acknowledge or recognize the harm being done even to them. Just "rah! rah! transgender! cis boom bah!"
I’m using emotional blackmail??

I guess some things never change. I grew up with the KKK active in this area. I knew some of the members. They all felt the same way you do, just about different people. Think about that.
but still - if enough people make a descision - some will later regret it - however mundane or great the actual descision
using this to " bash " transgenderism - is just wrong - they simply made a choice - lay off using it to bolster your dogma
