Being a trans woman and playing a trans character, Hunter has broken barriers with her depiction of trans issues and storylines — and become a fan favorite.

But this week the actor faced backlash for liking and commenting “!!!!” on this heavily criticized pos:

“I hope all of the people (enbies) who fought to have trans identities no longer considered a medical condition that requires dysphoria are happy because you’ve won,” the author of the post wrote. “The red states are beginning to agree with you. Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) and gender-affirming surgery are no longer deemed medically necessary for adults in Florida and it’s not going to stop there.”

It basically asserts that those who do not medically transition hold some of the blame for the anti-trans policy coming from the right-wing.

This is a complex and very personalized subject, so I’ll let experts and those in the community explain why they were upset.

Activist and queer legislative researcher Erin Reed said that transmedicalists “seek to gatekeep transition heavily.”

Transmedicalism used to be the _only_ viewpoint on whether or not you were allowed to transition. They used to separate you into categories like “AGP” (fetish, not allowed) or “HSTS” (you were “exposed to more estrogen in the womb” and likely present feminine gay).

“Damn, Hunter Schafer is really supporting blaming other trans people for the bills that right-wingers and fascists are pushing to restrict and ban trans healthcare. How disappointing,” one person wrote.

hunter schafer hating nonbinary ppl was not on my bingo card but is SO rich white woman of her but Also rooted in the idea that nonbinary people are just “trans-lite” and therefore are less deserving of affirming care and that’s a very harmful mentality that we need to disable <3

People even memed the situation — joking about the implication that non-binary people are somehow to blame for anti-trans legislation:
