I dunno man, I'm trying to be objective and I genuinely am willing to be corrected but I struggle to believe the subject isn't true. I know drag queens and similar phenomena have been a thing for a long time, but I'm talking about the bizarro X-genders, "non-binaries", they/thems. I'm sure I'm coming off as harsh or whatever, but I really do not see this as possible without the internet creating forums and echochambers for confused young people (probably suffering from depression and other ailments) to try and rationalize their condition.
It comes off as arbitrary, like Victorian era social constructs, the solution for alienation and depression in the First World was apparently to create a completely new realm of gender identities, not based on some kind of old cultural in-between gender that exists in places like India or Thailand, but rather on the social science of teenagers on the internet.
Again, I'm not trying to attack anybody, but I'm curious if /siberia/ think's I'm wrong, or maybe right
no. did the internet give rise to more trans people? yeah, probably. higher communicative flow, more niche ideology (political, media, sexual, personal, etc.). if you want a more close-fit "cause for trans people", its the spread of gender ideology as a whole, including traditional gender ideology.
(purely anecdotal conjecture) I may be an outlier, but I became non-binary/agender and homosexual without the help of any kind of 'queer hugbox'.

so did you just choose to ignore this part, or?
That guy isn't OP, I am, and I didn't make a thread to get "made about trans people", I have genuine mixed feelings about these people and I wanted to voice them and have my opinion challenged.
Is the implication here that it would somehow be better or more authentic if nonbinary people all called themselves hijra or two-spirit and tried to revive genders from the past? All gender is just labels we put on ways to dress, talk, walk and make up ones hair, why does it have to have precedent? All contemporary culture is a product of the internet because we live in an internet age and people experience social reality and interaction through it, so yes all gender as such is a product of the internet today. That doesn't make it any more or less real, or good or bad.
im trooning out in p*land in a reactionary family if that helps
i think you may be a troomer as well, since transhumanists are usually annoying faggots before transition op
