I fully accept that Cantor's theorem is a theorem of ZFC. But notSpeaking of which, have you determined which of the nine specific ZFC

those who don't can choose a set theory, such as NFU, in which
Cantor isn't a theorem (assuming consistency), or search for a
new theory in which the negation of Cantor is provable.
axioms [snip link] that you have a problem with?
For the vast majority of posters who criticize ZFC, the axiom
that they have a problem with is the Axiom of Infinity. It's
Infinity that leads directly to the results that such posters
are trying to avoid.
(Perhaps occasionally, a poster who accepts infinite sets but
not uncountable sets might be satisfied by dropping Powerset
rather than Infinity, but this is rare.)
Edward Belaga would allow countable, but not uncountable, ordinals:
