I don’t remember the context of what I was saying here and I’m too lazy to look it up in a Sunday morning!
What you say about the older generation projecting their experience onto younger generations is certainly true.
Older generations experienced a lot of open transphobia and homophobia and as a result have internalised transphobia that is unresolved. I do often wonder if it is these experiences and resultant (and understandable and valid) insecurities that are being projected onto younger generations and creating this environment of insecurity juxtaposed with entitlement.
Sorry I haven’t woken up properly yet.
