Unsure why coverage of this prick echoes idea his apparent sexual interest in trans women is “hypocritical”.

This is not “hypocrisy” it's patriarchy: men can and do want to fuck trans women while also hating them, just as men can want to fuck cis women while also hating them

Sometimes, when we stop talking about cis women (or white women or thin women) we seem to buy once again into the bizarre lie that male sexual desire is also an extension of humanity or care or even respect. It isn’t.

It’s why I can't be arsed with the “is it transphobic to not desire trans people” - I get that it’s something we can struggle with personally but politically it often lapses into thinking desire and solidarity map onto each other when someone could simply make you their dehumanized object
