This trope states that trans questioners or critics must simply be uninformed. The most dismissive and base of engagement avoidance tactics and a favorite of trans. “If you disagree with me you must not know what you are talking about”. The truth is feminist critics of transsexuality tend to be highly informed on matters of gender including those of the trans variety.
Among the general public this works well as a shaming conversation stopper. The general public is very uninformed about transgenderism and wants to be supportive of what they erroneously perceive as an offshoot of gays and lesbians.
