I believe it too. 'Scuse me for powerleveling, but there's this forum that I'm a part of which has a fairly active fanfiction subforum and one of the most popular writers almost always has a trans main character. It's the thing that all of her fans praise her for out of everything she writes. That wouldn't be a problem if she didn't remind the readers every other sentence or so that her characters are trans and it really disrupts the mood of the story - which is something a writer should not do if they want to write a good story imo, and it feels less like she's trying to write something and more like she's trying to push her ideology in everyone's faces.I’d believe this. Hell slashfic writers used to willingly admit it was what gets them hot. Its when it becomes sanctimonious about it that it hits peak cringy.
