But that’s the core of the problem. Yaniv isn’t a trans activist — not in behavior, nor in what she does. It’s not like it is a matter of political messaging or “giving a pass to the troubled trans” as some would claim — she’s straight up being played for laughs by the alt-right to discredit trans people. I don’t think there’s validity to the idea she must be denied her trans identity just because she’s shitty, but I’d argue it is *precisely* because of that that her identity should be severed from her decorum as a person.
