Actually while the first part of that sentence, up to "hoodrat" is true, gay and transgender men have in fact been kicked out of their homes, run out of town, and have been unable to find meaningful employment because of labels applied to being gay and transgender.

Cisgender straight males may not have been pushed out of their homes, but that doesn't apply to any men challenging cisgender male norms.
