they care more about the sexist ideal of the perfect untouched female form, than about the people whose bodies they actually are.

Epistemic injustice in psychiatry | BJPsych Bulletin | Cambridge Core
from a different paper, referring to this paper:
==
For an example of a particularly epistemic identity-based prejudice, think of the testimonial injustice faced by those with mental illness, whose testimony is often dismissed out of hand, even when reliable, on the basis that they are mentally ill (see Crichton, Carel, and Kidd 2017 Crichton, P., H. Carel, and I. J. Kidd. 2017. “Epistemic Injustice in Psychiatry.” BJPsych Bulletin 41 (2): 65–70. doi:10.1192/pb.bp.115.050682.[Crossref], [PubMed], [Web of Science ®], , [Google Scholar]).

Analysis: MA voters pass trans law by large margin!
This is that key post where an anti-gay, anti-trans activist explains the reasoning they came up with.
==
Over a decade ago when LGBT movement took the “gay marriage” battles into the state legislatures, and later into the federal courts, the major pro-family groups tried a similar strategy. As we reported at the time, they refused to argue that homosexuality was immoral, had terrible health risks, was fraught with addiction and mental health problems, etc. Instead, they concocted less offensive arguments such as, “Every child needs a father and a mother” and “the word ‘marriage’ is special” – and used them almost exclusively. It actually worked for a little while. But while technically true, before long they were easily picked apart by the LGBT lobby, and they began their string of wins. Nevertheless, on every level the pro-family lawyers and lobbyists refused to budge from that approach. Without any credible opposing arguments, the “gay marriage” push cruised to victories right up to the US Supreme Court. It was a shameful display of legal malpractice. Now with the “transgender anti-discrimination” bills the same thing is happening. Our side concocted the “bathroom safety” male predator argument as a way to avoid an uncomfortable battle over LGBT ideology, and still fire up people’s emotions. It worked in Houston a few years ago. But the LGBT lobby has now figured out how to beat it.

So You Want to Help Trafficking Victims? – Laura LeMoon – Medium
==
In my position as a human trafficking case manager, I had a coworker who trolled me online and found an article I had written about performative allyship and Ashton Kutcher’s senate speech from the Spring of 2017. She called the director of programming and my boss who then had a meeting with me essentially inferring that I would be sexually inappropriate with the children I work with because of my status at the time of being a former sex worker. I was fired shortly after making a discrimination complaint to HR. In the summer of this year, I got another job at a social service program, this time working with people living with viral Hepatitis. After being asked by my boss if I “fucked the guys [the clients] or just blew them,” in the middle of the office, I was quickly fired soon after working there only three weeks with the only reason explained to me being that this “just wasn’t a good fit.”

The new smear against transgender men: We’re weak, gullible girls.
==
rather than painting trans men as predators, anti-trans activists portray us as victims, led astray by peers and fundamentally incapable of knowing our own minds.
