A related issue is 'Pride washing', how Pride has become a marketing opportunity for big consumer product and services companies, some of which do business in countries with severe anti-LGTBQ and other terrible human rights policies. This distracts from the very real issues LGTBQ's still face in their daily lives.
There is a small but vocal minority of lesbians and bisexual women who exclude trans women from the community. So for this reason, I can understand and agree with your comment on division due to big tent desires
A trans women who hasn’t had bottom surgery is basically a male, why would a lesbian female be attracted to a female with a penis?
It’s similar to Elain Page’s wife leaving her after she became Elliot Page, she took a lot of heat when she left Elliot, she married a gay women why would she want to stay with Elain now that he’s Elliot?
