They probably think October is perfect with Halloween coming up since plenty of alphabet freaks are ghouls. Not to mention the ghosts of all the troons who 41%ed themselves. Still, as freaky as they are it shouldn't be too much to ask to let people enjoy spooky Halloween shit without the Rainbow Reich making it all about themselves.

It's a bs stat, utilized to justify the politics they are pushing and starting treatment from childhood, etc. I'm not sure why you'd reaffirm it. As much it might seem like an "own" it's pretty much the opposite.

It's at very least <20%, likely less depending on the method, if I had to guess it's somewhere inbetween 10-15%, and most of those pushing up the numbers are FTMs, "non-binary," etc while MTFs have lower rates. Also it's suicide attempt rate, not success.

Because whenever someone says “Go join the 41%”, everyone knows what they mean and it causes enormous amounts of seething. Don’t destroy something catchy because its origin is unverified.

Also, I’ve always found it suspicious that there are so few people who’ve been transitioning for more than a year or two on the trans reddits. Even older accounts stop posting after a while. I suspect once reality catches up to them, they either detransition or kill themselves if that’s no longer possible.

"I did it for the memes and insults" is a pretty bad argument re: re-affirming one of key narratives utilized to justify fucking up kids, but hey, you do you. It's not like you'll be the one suffering.

Don’t destroy something catchy because its origin is unverified.

It's not unverified, it's blatantly false, and even the original source of the information has noted in "limitations" that it's likely vastly overblown.
