What I don't understand is the right's infatuation with the topic. From my perspective, it sure seems like the religious leaders are using it to show how godless, inferior, and lacking of morals the non-religious and liberal crowd is. That solidifies their (church leaders) position as the one true light that the sheep should follow.
you will still find hormone levels are all over the place rather than being binary
Why do some people view trans issues as so important?
errc saysWhy do some people view trans issues as so important?I don't know. Some people think that it's a major human rights violation not to have transgender safe bathrooms, or to change the law allowing self-appointed members of one gender into the bathrooms of another.The real problem is the US has so much equality under the law, that those who seek to display MORAL RIGHTEOUSNESS!!! must continually press at the extreme margins to find something to bitch about.
Yeah that's all very well, there 2 clear clusters.
But I agree that Christian SJWs thrusting their moral righteousness into our government and onto our People, is the gravest of tragedies
errc saysBut I agree that Christian SJWs thrusting their moral righteousness into our government and onto our People, is the gravest of tragediesExtreme Christians were the threat 20, 30 years ago.They never had the reach into Academia, and increasingly, Corporate HR and Employee Policies, like Social Justice Warriors do.Extreme Christianity is a rapidly fading power; SJWism is not.
I agree that there are 2 clear clusters, and that some vast majority are clearly men or women / boys or girls. That all seems rather obvious. I just don't think that's enough information to specify an answer to the polling question.
My take is: in order to think clearly,
Many Cluster B parents are going to engage in Transtrender Virtual Signalling for Peer Group Accolades and pressure their kids to get sex changes.
2 scoops is trying to read too much into it.
That, and identity politics. Symptoms of a political left sinking into the swamp.
Left and right are both guilty of identity politics.
I've expressed in comment 1 why the religious leaders on the right love to turn this into a culture war.
As for the left continuing to fight for the rights of minorities, they have a pretty good track record over the last 40 yrs.
White nationalism and minorities identity politics are mirror images of each other. You can't coalesce one tribe without coalescing its out-group.
And Bush is quoted as telling the two men, "I feel God's words coming to me: 'Go get the Palestinians their state and get the Israelis their security, and get peace in the Middle East'. And by God, I'm gonna do it."
This is a well known technique that the Left uses
But of course. This is how tribalism works. The more you insist on imposing one idea seen as extreme, the more you bolster people with the opposite idea. This is how politics work.
IMO Trump's election has energized the left the same way that Obama/Clinton energized the right in 2016. That's unlikely to subside over time

if there is a need for additional terms (words) then the dictionary should be expanded, rather than fight to redefine existing terms.
errc - the reason why trans issues are brought up a lot is because they make the deviant behavior of vanilla queers that much more normalized by comparison.This is a well known technique that the Left uses when they push their morally reprehensible agenda. Disgust their opposition to the point that their true victory slides by unnoticed inside the distraction.
that those who seek to display MORAL RIGHTEOUSNESS!!! must continually press at the extreme margins to find something to bitch about. They also want pre-pubescent children to have the right to take hormones and get complicated, invasive elective surgeries
sneer at millions of underemployed rustbelters wishing them death by narcotics.
Interesting the degree to which all of these are wrapped together in one generalization. The bathroom issue is one that never should have blown up if it weren't for Sean Hannity and folks like yourself that think they can get the base all worked up about those freaky left wingers, over such a non issue, as giving those small number of trans folks a public restroom.
