This is a very good analysis of the difference between gay and lesbian people feeling more comfortable about being visible now, which doesn't mean that there are more gay people now than there used to be; and the current significantly socially influenced transgender movement.

You’re truly a master of gish gallop.

As far as I can ascertain, your entire argument (I.e. that it’s more than simply an increase in acceptance and tolerance) is essentially ‘these two opinion pieces postulate that it’s similar to the repressed memories phenomenon’ with no clear evidence they are correlated, nor any credible studies or evidence linking the two.

This is pure opinion, packaged up as fact. Nothing more.
