Even in these dark times, there is room for optimism. The extremist transphobes (right wing or left wing) will not be persuaded by anything we say. They are locked into a view of the world that makes it impossible to see what we see. But we do not have to convince them. The target must be the moderates in the middle, the ones who still have a heart and who would be able to see the parallels between the current treatment of trans women, and history's treatment of women, people of color and gay people.
I do, from time to time, engage the transphobes online, but never in the hope of changing their minds. But I want other readers following the discussions to be aware of the other point of view.
