Please don't put words in my mouth.  It harms the cause you are promoting.

I said "this case".  Whatever the symbolic effects may be, no matter how
many others suffer similar problems, it is plain fact that far less than
50% of the population is directly involved in this particular case.

Pretending that I am speaking about the entire issue, when I clearly
limited my comment to the direct consequences of this one case, makes you
come off as the enemy of those who would otherwise agree with you.  It is
stereotypical of so-called Social Justice Warriors, and that this happens
is one of the rallying cries of those who would denounce people like you.
You will get better results if you double-check what you are responding to
before assuming.

I believe the phrase is, "check your privilege"?
