That's what I've been thinking too, especially since I noticed a huge surge in trannies right around 2014 when GG happened. I like to call it the Transplosion. Just look up a tranny's profile on some forum using the Wayback Machine, 2014-2015 is usually the point where they put pronouns in their sig/title/wherever or changed their gender listing to female.Forgive me if this has been brought up elsewhere in this thread, but stuff like this often makes me wonder if the radical feminism of the mid-10’s that played a role in Gamergate was actually a major contributor to the current trans fad, at least on the MtF side of things.
Not saying I ever agreed with the anti-GG crowd by long shot, but I’ve always found it interesting that most of the AGP troons that now inhabit nerdy communities are almost the exact "sexually entitled misogynist" stereotype that they were accusing men in general of being. Like on some unconscious level, they knew that since popular opinion was siding with these women, they could save themselves by claiming that they, too, were women.
