My cousin and nephew are both trans. And neither one of them does anything except make a big deal about how they are repressed and hated by society. They surround themselves with packs of others just like them and they fester in their little dens. They don't hang out with each other. Big age gap. But they act almost the same. Which is true for all the people they live with. They both live in a single apartment with 4/5 other people. Neither have a job. Both are sexually active with multiple partners, which causes them a lot of grief. And both are attention whores to the extreme.
Now to clarify, They both claim that their families hate and disown them, but we are constantly reaching out hands of good will to them. And I don't mean "if you clean up we'll take you back" shit. They are always invited to Christmas, Thanksgiving, and any family get-togethers. We stay in contact with them and help out when we can. Including giving rides (because neither have a drivers license), helping with bills, and generally being there for them when they need it. We're supportive of their choices. Never telling them they need to change who they are. They are the ones that spit in our faces to their friends and on public media, but always ask for help when they need it.
I love my nephew, having spent a lot of time around him growing up. We have a lot of common interests. Why he wants to be called a girl now boggles my mind. He doesn't act like a girl. Doesn't dress like a girl. But he complains constantly about people not treating him like the girl he is. You may have noticed that I refer to him as, well, him. I'm not a supporter of the trans movement. But I don't disrespect him and rub this shit in his face. If he wants me to call him Sakura and call him a girl, I'd do it around him. But he's told me that it's fine if I refer to him by his actual name.
My point is, from my limited personal experience, trans people are trans mainly for the attention it gets them.
