Something tells me you would be equally as upset, if not more, if Disney had decided to flesh out the character even more. But please, correct me if I'm wrong. Would you like to have an entire gay romantic arc with a big kiss at the end? The other info is in the story - did you read it?
"The "Jungle Cruise" representation goes further -- MacGregor explains he joined his scientist sister (Emily Blunt) on her expedition to Brazil because she "stood by" him while others in World War I-era London spurned him because of who he "loved."

Really? What we actually know is that men wearing dresses are real.
We get it, you care more about reactionary nonsense than actual science and facts. Do you even know what it means to be intersex? Get outta here.

It would be absurd (and extremely dangerous) if men who decided they were women - and dressed like one - were permitted to use female toilets, especially so those with children. The dangers of disguised predators lurking in there would be very real.
Please explain how a law would prevent someone from entering a bathroom, but not stop them from assaulting someone. Do you have any idea how silly this argument sounds from a logical perspective?

Wikipedia is not the best source. The cites included, if properly vetted, are a good sources.
Oh, I know. I just think it's interesting that the article made such a splash that there was such a lengthy entry written on it.
Is there scientific evidence supporting transgenderism? I saw some studies, but nothing conclusive. If there is evidence, I’d be happy to read about it.
Well, it depends on what you mean by "supporting transgenderism". We know that intersex people are real. We know that there are people who have penises but feel like women. We know studies have been done (https://news.usc.edu/158899/transgender-research-usc-brain-gender-identity/) that indicate brain activity which is more similar to that of their psychological gender than their biological sex. We know that chromosomes do not always dictate the genitalia people will have. I'm not going to post a laundry list of articles for you to read but this is a good start. https://blogs.scientificamerican.com/voices/stop-using-phony-science-to-justify-transphobia/

Notice that psychiatry combines natural science and social science. Since social science is included, we have to take it into consideration when discussing psychiatric afflictions.
Considerations that support transgenderism seem to apply equally to transracialism.
Definitely an interesting article - thanks for sharing. But until there is actual scientific evidence for this like there is which supports trans identities (I'm not sure how that would be possible since race science is bunk) I'm not sure it's worth bringing this up. There is actually an entire wikipedia page about this article and the controversy surrounding it. Not really the best source as of right now.
Its facts, reality and biology versus indulging those whose "feelings" are hurt when we refuse to go along with their fantasies.
Sure, good luck finding a respectable biologist who would agree with you. Keep burying your head in the sand...

I know a lot of woke warriors like to play mental games but it really can't be more simple: If you have a tool you are a dude.
TIL that listening to scientific and medical experts means playing "mental games" instead of just accepting facts and opening my mind to accept that many things in life are not black and white. Wow!

For instance, if a Latinx person feels like an Inuit, people need to respect that. We should not be picking and choosing whose feelings to respect lest we discriminate against some.
Except there is absolutely no scientific evidence that validates that - evidence which does exist - plentifully at that - that justifies trans identities. girl_in_tokyo has linked to a lot of good stuff but of course everyone is ignoring it. You can't bother showing facts to people who are committed to their ignorance.
Always a laugh to see people justifying their bigotry by bringing up paranoia over sexual abuse in the bathroom. Guess what? Sexual abuse is illegal. "I was going to disguise myself as a woman to abuse some kids in this bathroom but oop! - I guess I can't since going in the bathroom is illegal" - said absolutely no sexual predator ever. These laws do nothing to stop sexual abuse, they only harm trans folks who are simply trying to mind their own business.

did he ask any of the women he worked with if it was okay with ALL of them if he uses the toilet?
Who cares? Why should trans people be forced to coddle the ignorant? Should black people have thought more about the feelings of white folks on the busses they were riding and the lunch counters they were eating at? Should lesbians and gays have to think about the feelings of everyone who doesn't want them to get married? Why are we not encouraging everyone to just mind their own damn business? If you people actually knew any transgender people rather than just mindlessly taking in whatever Fox News tells you, you'd know that using the bathroom that aligns with your gender is a huge step for trans folks that is never taken lightly - you aren't going to see some bearded gorilla man in a dress in the woman's restroom. It just doesn't happen.
