don't know and don't care what you are, but might I interest you in our thread to learn English? You seem to have severe issues to spell transgender.

You're welcome to learn what terms mean before you actually use them.

"Whataboutism" is used to describe when people dismiss a problem because a different problem exists.

Nobody is using anti-Semitism to dismiss the existence of transphobia. An analogy was used to illustrate the principle that making an attack on one's social group isn't made permissible by that member of that social group being a bad person.

Using an analogy to make an argument in this way is actually the opposite of "whataboutism," because instead of using the existence of one problem to dismiss the importance of another, it's invoking another problem to address exaclty why the original one being spoken about is a problem. The fact that this isn't apparent to you suggests a deficiency in comprehending simple arguments on your part. Which makes your charges against others' argumentative abilities all the funnier.

If you think I'm wrong, the task before you is to explain the relevant differences between my example and your trans-identity-based attacks upon Jenner that make one permissible and the other not. If you are unable to do that, you must either accept both as permissible, or both as unacceptable.

Or you could choose the option of evading the argument and making another irrelevant point, as has been your usual M.O.

You want productivity, here's a question I find provoking, if for no other reason that it comes up as a legal issue: should women have to share the women's restroom with men who self identify as women? If yes, then what, if anything, does the man-who-believe's-he's-a-woman have to do to prove their woman-like enough to justify sharing a restroom with actual women?
