The Family Research Council wants you to forget that the Taliban may persecute trans women

In spite of whether or not you agree with President Biden's decision to pull troops out of Afghanistan, I think there is unity in the thought that having the Taliban take over that region may not be a good thing for the folks there. In adherence of their religion, the Taliban could possibly be cracking down on the rights of various people, including women and the LGBTQ community.

But leave it to hate group the Family Research Council to make a bad situation worse:

Who is Allie Beth Stuckey, you may ask? One of those annoying conservative pundits/commentators/what-have-you who is seen as "feisty" because she trades decent debate and intelligent ideas with being rude and hateful. If you've seen one, you've seen them all -   tight dresses, big hair, big smiles, and annoyingly large high-heels packaged around a nasty attitude and ready play the victim - by accusing you of being sexist - if you called out any of the errors in their arguments.

She's irrelevant here except to call out FRC's hypocrisy. While the group points out how cis women and girls could face a major reduction of rights  and persecution in Afghanistan due to the Taliban taking over, it implies that whatever persecution transgender women would be victim of under Taliban rule doesn't matter.

 And transgender women - all LGBTQ people in fact - could face persecution under Taliban rule.

Seems to me there should be a general concern of any group of individuals who risk being persecuted instead of playing one group over the other. But then again, from their actions in America, FRC never really had a problem with anti-LGBTQ persecution in the first place.
