puf@rage[.]love for harassment, transphobia, DARVO

Classic abuser tactic. He sounds oh so reasonable & caring, whilst gaslighting & manipulating his audience & victims.

He wants us to think trans people are hurt & confused and thus can't be honest about being racist.

To make sure no one believes them when they are legitimately defending themselves from his ongoing transphobic abuse.

Even if his victims actually did anything racist, puf's harassment is malicious and unjustifiable.

So he starts a thread accusing queer people of racism.

Then he says being queer does not give you permission to be racist. True as a general statement, but the framing suggests the people he just accused are using queerphobia as a shield from criticism, thus pre-emptively discrediting his victims.

And then he mockingly calls his victims "confused" for thinking his statements apply to them (which he claims they did not, but do now).

This is harassment, gaslighting, and transphobia.

It's brilliant really, how puf actually found his own transphobia "get-out-of-jail-free card": he defends black people ­— especially black trans people — and as a result he can gleefully harass and gaslight white trans people he can credibly accuse of racism and everyone applauds him for it and defends him when people complain about his harassment.

Ironically, this strategy would have been less successful if there were more people speaking out against racism. So maybe that's on the rest of us. yeahhh how tf does that make any sense there, puf. I've mostly been butting out of this whole thing but the idea that queer people are somehow transmuting "transphobia feels bad" into "making me feel bad is transphobic" is, uh, what
