How to be a Socialist Transphobe (but still feel good about yourself)

How to be a Socialist Transphobe (but still feel good about yourself)

Dear Jen de Critique,
I am a committed socialist, and I hate prejudice of any kind: racism, homophobia, classism, sexism, ageism, ableism, you name it. However, I find trans people a bit yucky. Can you offer any advice about how to reconcile my pro-equality views with my feelings about trans people?
Yours sincerely,
Tribune of the People
