When Elliot Page came out as trans, many in the so-called “gender critical” movement acted as if something had been stolen from them. “We mourn the loss of lesbian Ellen Page to transgenderism,” wrote someone calling themselves Radical Lesbians. “We’re losing our already tiny pool of lesbians to the trans cult,” agreed a commenter called Liz-B-Ann on Saidit.
It was a bad day for transphobes. Yesterday, Elliot Page — famous for Juno and his current role in the Umbrella Academy — came out as trans. “I can’t begin to express how remarkable it feels to finally love who I am enough to pursue my authentic self,” he wrote in a statement.
