Good question! It began with a certain notorious person in Canada, whose behaviour made me furious. I became stuck on this person's outrageous behaviour, and, unfortunately, the fact that they were a trans woman led me to start moving away from what was actually important to me (being an ally in the trans community). Looking back, it doesn't really make sense, but at the time, it did (I entered a community of people who were so certain about the world and my place in it; they didn't force anything on me, I just found the certainty very attractive). I realize a somewhat odd response!
