How common are asian troons, anyways?
I'm in Asia and I've not seen the lolcow types that we may find on the farms, and I personally don't know or seen anyone who has trooned out even during the college days which wasn't that long ago. The only ones I've seen or encountered before are probably the Thai ladyboy types but they usually pass and sorta know their place enough to not bother you. I reckon most people here live and let live and would not be exposed to the annoying/manipulative/crazy types on Twitter/Reddit.
That said, I do think there's a bit of loony troonism creeping in here since I've heard anecdotes from the LGBT folks about more annoying troons appearing in the annual pride parade thingy, and seen local redditors troon out suddenly too. One MTF who medically transitioned also dm-ed me the following which is really sad considering how she literally lost her house because she was trans (https://qz.com/988514/a-straight-ma...-and-singapores-famous-efficiency-broke-down/)
Obviously the troon menace is really nothing compared to Western countries since the last group of people who protested transphobia got arrested, but seeing all the stories on the Farms and elsewhere I know how fast the slippery slope occurs, so I hope the status quo remains no matter how much I might have had empathised with the troons previously.
