    What this person is saying is that it’s OK to be incredibly judgmental about other people, their appearances and health choices, but trans people are treated the way everyone should be treated. Except she then says no one should be treated with nonjudgmental respect. I think she is jealous of trans people being comfortable with who they are and being fabulous.
