On further thought and reading, his surgery and statements indicate that rather than being a transman he/she has converted themselves into a person that fits the categorisation "intersex".

I think people with differences in sexual development (DSD) as intersex is more accurately known would argue that it is not the case.

Yes, maybe not. But I don't see how you can claim to be a man yet want to retain the functioning genitalia of a woman. Makes no sense to me. You've had surgery to remove your breasts. I think maybe I'm too old and set in my ways for this brave new world.

Breasts can be taped down. To dress as a man and be in a stable relationship with a woman does and will make it easier for a lesbian couple to live openly together and make anti-lesbians less likely to twig what you are doing.
The Holy Bible, probably the most diabolical work of fiction ever to be visited upon mankind.

Well possibly, but I'd hope there is less need for that in this day and age and that would still be two lesbians.

It is the claim that they are a trans man that I find confusing.

Of course! Those attacking her and any who support her can only operate with anonymity! Well, most of them, anyway!
