Batbooks turn to supporting transgender politics

Wouldn't you know it, DC's provided more proof their latest directions are no less political than Marvel's. It's not just the Batgirl comics of the past 3 years where this has taken place. Now, according to Screen Rant, the flagship Batman series are adding LGBT propaganda to their pages:
The DC Rebirth made it clear that Batman is a transgender ally, and his main comic books are keeping that support alive. Even now, it’s possible that devoted fans of Batman comics missed Bruce Wayne’s stance on the issue – which was the entire point. The company-wide relaunch brought a Rebirth to Batman’s title series, while he united the rest of the Batman Family in the pages of Detective Comics. That team ended up being led by Batwoman, one of the most visible LGBTQ comic heroes. But it also introduced a new, openly transgender scientist to the DC Universe: Dr. Victoria October.

[...] AS we mentioned before, the introduction of Dr. October was a far cry from what most readers would expect. Typically, and for admirable reasons, comic publishers can headline the creation of LGBTQ characters or heroes. The idea being that making their sexuality or gender identity THE story means a more diverse audience can see themselves represented – and the publisher can be seen taking those strides. But with Detective Comics #948, Tynion and Bennett explained only that Victoria and Batman’s working relationship went back a long time… to before Victoria was even Victoria. And when her transition was completed, Batman conveyed his congratulations in the form a greeting card (AS Batman, no less).
Man, is this ludicrous, and the main problem is surely that there's no chance they would ever depict transgender ideology negatively or as a poor example, as the Masked Manhunter's congratulation to the presumed former Victor hints. And making their sexuality/gender identity the story or what they're all about is precisely why this is so embarrassing - because in the end, that's all they often about. Even the following suggests this is worse than it sounds:
Dr. October would take a step away from the story soon after, before returning in Issue #959, when her specialty in modified human genetics and physiology made her a powerful ally. [...]
Based on the premise, this plot point only sounds like more to dread (as does the fact they insist on alluding to a possibly biological male as "her" instead of "he", which is becoming commonplace in the leftist media of recent). It wouldn't be shocking if October specializes in creating more transsexual beings through these scientific and chemical experiments. The mad scientist premise takes a whole new meaning this way. Combined with the obvious leftist politics here and that's why this is something better avoided. The Batbooks aren't being done any favors with this balderdash.

You aren't being brave for thing being trans is bs, but ignorant.
