We don't let white ppl decide what's racist, or men decide what's sexist. Why are we letting cis ppl decide what's transphobic?

This rather sinister tweet has a certain assumptions I wouldn't mind unpicking.
Are white people really not allowed to decide what is racist? Or are they just too stupid to say "What do you mean by 'racist'?" It should be borne in mind that racism has not been legally defined as can be seen at http://thevoiceofreason-ann.blogspot.co.uk/2012/01/supreme-court-should-give-us-definition.html
Are men really not allowed to decide what is sexist? Or are they just too stupid to say "What do you mean by 'sexist'? Do you mean "anything a woman finds offensive"?
Who defines what is "transphobic"?
First we need to define what is transphobia.
Transphobia, it would appear, is an irrational fear and hatred of transgendered people, ie people who have had a sex change.
I have been accused of having an irrational fear and hatred of the transgendered, which I deny.
A hate crime is any criminal offence that is motivated by hostility or prejudice based upon the victim's:
- religion or belief
- sexual orientation
- transgender identity
- Hate crime can take many forms including:
- physical attacks such as physical assault, damage to property, offensive graffiti and arson
- threat of attack including offensive letters, abusive or obscene telephone calls, groups hanging around to intimidate, and unfounded, malicious complaints
- verbal abuse, insults or harassment - taunting, offensive leaflets and posters, abusive gestures, dumping of rubbish outside homes or through letterboxes, and bullying at school or in the workplace.
I have not verbally abused https://twitter.com/B1uEYE in any way.
I plead Not Guilty, M'lud!
I suppose he means to say that it is up to the person offended to decide whether or not the person he feels he has offended him is guilty or not.
As far as he is concerned I have been tried and convicted. He is offended, therefore I am guilty.
Thank God for courts of law and the right to a fair trial, eh? We still just about have that, but its powers of legal reasoning are slowly being destroyed by advanced matriarchal dementia.
Advanced matriarchal dementia allows people like Sabine to lord it over us on account of his perceived victimhood. They even make the taxpayer pay for him to have his surgery so that he can enhance his victim status to increase his power over the male taxpayer, and it seems the male taxpayer does not mind, or is too stupid or scared to say anything.
Is not the degradation of the white men alarming and frightening? How can you shock such people out of their unquestioning obedience to the matriarchy? Nothing seems to work. It is as if they enjoy their oppression or perhaps, even now, they refuse to acknowledge it.
Or is the really the case that they have no pride and feel no shame and have not the slightest idea what you mean when you talk about principle, courage and justice?
Then they are no better than cattle, and cattle are only bred for one purpose - to be eaten after slaughter.
