                    If she had of just thrown in the term non-binary trans then she would have been untouchable, cause apparently that's a thing people can do now

                          I'm so shocked by the amount of transphobia that I've read in the comments. There's still a lot of work we have to do when it comes to equal rights, ya'll. 😖😪

                              What I take issue with and Gia I believe articulated something similar is that in the world, many, many people are flippant about the transgender label. They will stuff like “you’re trans? Ok, I’m a shark” ... equating it in a very ignorant way. The trans identity is both loathed and ridiculed as silly at the same time. And so for Trisha to degrade the trans name in this way is piling on.

                                          Exactly what I'm thinking. The title is misleading. Now it looks like Gia is "attacking" Trisha for what she's done. Well not attacking I just can't think of the right term, but yea. Not a slam. 💀

                                        If you are comfortable showing off your chest and getting breast implants, and 100% comfortable in your biological body then you're not ftm transgender.

I don't use transgender as for clickbait. I've never had a single video about being a fake transgender. If I wanted a click bait yes I could prolly go out and get one because I am what? SICKENING you could never be a transgender because you're not that type of girl. Baby everything I have I worked for, I've gotten myself I've built myself from the ground up. FCKING BTCH!

                                                          @Wee Wee I'm assuming you're either someone who can't read or someone who just repeats their words in order to convince themself they're right. My point came across pretty clearly. Don't throw around words trying to police people online especially when you're doing it incorrectly. The original commenter wasn't racist nor transphobic. Have a nice day, friend!!

                                                          schuyler morgan So I can’t find multiple things about this same post wrong? I said just a guess in my original post. So again, your point?

                                                          @Wee Wee My point is you're throwing around a term that doesn't apply here. You can't move the goalpost after you set it. You said they were racist. I said they weren't because, literally, nothing they said was offensive and fueled by racial bias. You said you're offended by something else they said. Make up your mind. This person addressed her by her proper pronoun and didn't discount anything about her gender. Just because they said she somewhat resembles Eugene from the Try Guys, doesn't mean they're a fucking horrible person who needs reprimanding. Get off of your fucking high horse. If you wanna police people then you should go to fucking school for it.

To me, it’s worse than stolen valor. Just when I thought Trisha couldn’t be a bigger swine she winds up back up at her trough (her kitchen floor) and shits all over an entire demographic. She needs to be removed. Period.

Trisha doesn't feel like she should have been born a man and is trapped in a womans body, Trisha feels alone in the world and likes people in the trans community and wants to be a part of it because she doesnt know who she is and is taking uneducated ignorant stabs in the dark based on fluff. She's not transgender. She's sad and wants attention. At the end of the day its reckless behaviour for someone like her who has a voice to belittle a group of people that have been through so much already. But at the same time no one is taking her seriously.
