But to be honest I'd have said 5%, which seems to be fairly accurate.

How would you define transphobia?
Most people who I know IRL are what I'd call uninformed/unintentional transphobes. I.E. people who unironically use the word "trap" to refer to certain transgender people, people who spread edgy memes like "I identify as an attack helicopter," people who don't understand the difference between having a male body and a female brain/people who don't understand the science behind gender-dysphoria. 9/10 of these people would never support ant-transgender legislation and will more often than not refer to a trans person by their preferred pronouns when actually talking to them IRL.
In other words they enjoy edgy 2014 Ben Shapiro tier memes and share some of his views, but their beliefs are based on misinformation rather than bigotry. I don't think any of these people are a threat to transgender people, at worst they perpetuate their own ignorance, and might misgender you because they genuinely think that transgenderism is some kind of elaborate joke. Would you consider this as transphobia?I get a bit irate and go full SJW whenever people bring up Ben Shapiro talking points in reference to transgender people. I just can't stand when people talk about serious political issues as if they were some kind of expert, despite the fact that they clearly know nothing about the subject other than what they've seen in a handful of anti-SJW videos.
>How do you think your perception of the world stacks up to reality?
I generally check my biases by looking at mainstream sources (BBC, CNN, the government, etc) that I know will be neutral at best, or will actually be extremely bised in the opposite direction.
For example if the government claims that 44.9 of people in London are "White British" (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ethnic_groups_in_London
) you can be more than assured that at least 44.9 people in London are "White British," because the government has no motivation to exaggerate the number of minority's in the country. In fact I'd argue that the government is most likely over exaggerating the number of "White British" people in the country, to quell paranoia among the native population.
However in places like /pol/ over exaggeration of things like crime committed by minorities and the number of non-Whites in White countries is a competition. /pol/s motivations are the exact opposite of the governments, because their goal is to spread their beliefs by terrifying people through exaggerate statistics, and then offering their own philosophy as the only way to fix the worlds.>>243148>>243152
I agree that people who unironically think that all Black people are violent thugs, and that "(((George Soros))) is the head of a (((international conspiracy))) that directly amis to destroy the )))Aryan race((( so (((the chosen people))) can inslave all of the )))goyim(((" are delusional and not to be taken seriously. But I'd say that sticking your head in the sand, genuinely believing that all races are equal, and not at least being somewhat wary of a future where most/all White countries are overrun by Muslims and Blacks is just as delusional.
In your hypothetical example you say that "65% of X minority has committed Y crime." I don't think you realise just how significant that is, especially if only 10% Z majority commits Y crime. If X commits Y crime significantly more than Z, shouldn't Z be asking itself if X is really worth keeping around, (or importing more of) especially if they're a drain on the economy of Zs economy?
Why would Z want more people like X in their country when X commits significantly more crime and generally doesn't integrate into Zs society and contribute?
Just a little something for you to thonk about.>>243160
I'm very sceptical of this. I don't think people are actually retarded enough to believe this, and if they are I'd just completely write the off as completely delusional, and thus not worth talking to.>>243218>>243252
