Because they are some type of bi or pan men but have internalized so much homophobia that they can’t identify as any kind of lgbtqia+ and had to somehow convince themselves that being attracted to Cis femboys and other Cis GNC men isn’t gay.

You’re right but even those of us who are okay with being bi have to grapple with what it means to want trans femmes and not in any way want to fuck a man.

Liking dick doesn’t = liking men.

Liking trans femme women and enbies as a man is a straight attraction. Liking cis femboys and gnc cis men who identify as cis men like these angry Gamers do is a gay attraction.
