Why? What bizarre conspiracy theory are you trying to push now?

Giving groups of people basic human rights doesn't harm you. Why are you so opposed to it?

Why do you have a problem with someone being legally recognized as an age different than what the clock says?
I have a problem with an apparently well-known troll[^] bringing a frivolous law-suit to try to justify withholding rights from groups of people that he doesn't like.

I have a problem with other people pointing to that law-suit and shouting "SEE! We told you this would happen!" for the same reason.

Nobody is restricting his rights based on his age. (If they were, that would be ageism, which would be unacceptable.) Nobody is making it illegal for him to lie about his age, except on official documents. There is absolutely no parallel between his law-suit and trans rights.
