Two things.
1. The original page is much better.
2. As this page points out, there is an underlying problem of social sites promoting incestual amplification. (It is hardly limited to the left: members of conservative forums have convinced each other that Trump is the greatest president since... well I dunno. Forever.)
But I wonder just how big this community of the very wackiest trans parents actually is. Just 100 would be enough to generate a lot of reposts.

ok, i did a little research. The most rabid supporter of trans rights in sports is ... wait for it ... Rachel McKinnon, the first trans winner (in that much-cited bike race. Hannah Mouncey (Australian handball) shows up often, too. Meanwhile, there are any number of "fourth wave feminists" getting interviewed all over left-off center media. So there is a certain bias in tbe stories you are posting. A better title is "Who's afraid of Rachel McKinnon". 3am, obviously, and a few other much-cited web sites. So: yes it is a problem. But you keep mis-estimating the scope. Solve editorial cowardice, and the problem largely goes away.
