I don't really think it's something that can be avoided, to be honest.

I get that it is probably extremely annoying for them, but it's probably best for them to be vocal about the issues they have with another's views and addressing it, as opposed to just shutting down or cancelling them away.

Eh, not really. You wouldn't expect someone to explain why other bigoted views are bad. You can only tolerate so much of being educational and understanding when going over the same points of contention over and over, thread after thread, page after page with user after user. If you're the subject of discrimination it shouldn't be on you to detail every single reason why over and over and over. You're shifting the focus of the problematic behaviour from the person doing it to the person receiving it.

Respect should just be an intrinsic thing, it shouldn't need explaining.

That's not really my intent. I know who the victims are in this.

I find this topic really complicated to talk about in all honesty. I apologise if I'm coming across as a bit hamfisted.

Yeah, I get that. I think it's best to be supportive of the people saying they're being hurt than expect them to explain why.

My point was that the problematic behaviour of CDPR is being shifted over to trans members expecting them to explain why it's problematic. Not you specifically.
