I think the biggest flaw in your argument is the idea that an ideology that is so extremely about conformity to gendered rules is about freedom from them. To put it bluntly, I think you're very badly and very obviously wrong about that. I'll address a specific point, although it applies to everything and not just this point. You wrote this: That's partially true, at least for the man. Women have far more gender freedom than men in this country at this time, obviously, but the position you state is far from universal even for men. In addition, even if it's assumed that a male ballet dancer is gay that's not necessarily a bad thing any more. Being gay is vastly more widely socially acceptable than it was in the past. Very many people genuinely don't care and will say so publically. It's not entirely equal, but it's not true that it's universally or even predominantly assumed that gay = bad. In addition, it's not a direct correlation with either gender or sex. Even if it's widely assumed that all men who are ballet dancers are homosexual, then it's not the same as forbidding men from being ballet dancers. Even if it's widely assumed that all women who play rugby are homosexual, then it's not the same as forbidding women from playing rugby. But compare that with the TRA position on the same thing. From a TRA position, it is the same thing because the whole TRA ideology includes and is largely based on the belief that gendered stereotyping should be taken to such an extreme that sex is identical to gender. So from a TRA point of view, if ballet dancing is feminine then yes, men must be forbidden to be ballet dancers and if playing rugby is masculine then yes, women must be forbidden to play rugby. The only difference between TRA ideology and more traditional ideologies about gender == sex and extremist stereotyping is the addition of the belief that a person can change sex by decree without actually changing sex. Which is obviously nonsense, but that doesn't matter because, as usual, all that matters is power. It's possible to force nonsense on people if you have enough power. But it goes even beyond that due to the fact that it's extreme authoritarianism based on nonsense and without any internal checks and balances on forcing itself on people. For example, I am a man. If I declared that I was a woman without any changes at all and a man didn't consent to have sex with me because he was straight and therefore wasn't sexually attracted to my very definitely male physiology, just wasn't into ****, then under TRA rule he would be a criminal, an evil-doer who should be taken by force to a "re-education" facility. And no, this is not hyperbole. It's central to the whole TRA ideology. Also central to the whole TRA ideology is specifically targetting children because they're more vulnerable to manipulation. Any authoritarian ideology should target children because that's necessary for long term power.
