It's not just 'transgender ideology': it's leftists using that as another club

to beat people into submission to Proper Thinking.

From what I've read, you have a few people(it's very few) whose brain chemistry and plumbing are not matched; those people have a real problem that may be properly treated with surgery and such.  You have a larger number that don't have the chemistry problem, but have mental problems and have decided being the other sex would make them happy(or happier); surgery and hormones aren't going to fix them.*  Then you have the asshats who want to announce they're a non-binary non-hetero(fill in the blanks); they're just activist idiots who want to shock people and be transgressive.

Problem is the leftists have pushed this to this point:
The terrifying precedent set by this case can be illustrated by one, flabbergasting fact: The judge in the case refused to allow Whatcott's lawyer to offer testimony showing that, in point of fact, Oger is a biological male. According to the judge, "the 'truth' of [Whatcott's] statements in the flyer is not a defense." As such, said the judge, "evidence is simply not relevant to the legal issue..."

Read that again. Let it sink in. Truth is not a defense. Evidence doesn't matter. What matters — it would seem — is whether someone's feelings were hurt. And thus, with a stroke of the pen, the rule of law is replaced with the rule of feelings. But as Whatcott has just learned, and I suspect many more are about to learn, feelings can be far more ruthless and unyielding taskmasters than laws.
That's one hell of a club to use on people.  And a horrible thing to do to the rule of law.  This crap is not going to end well.

*Yes, I know, it may a few; in general, it won't make them happy.
