I have been mulling over the issues of transphobia, cis-privilege, and radical feminism for awhile. I wanted to write a rebuttal to the idea that “Transwoman is the patriarchy”, but I can’t really get past the stabbing pain behind my eyes. Yes, I’m sure that people who are subjected to high levels of violence, rape, and abuse are just transitioning genders to infiltrate women-only spaces, and to reinforce gender binary. Pfft.
“Transgenderism” is not an ideology. There are, only, transgendered people, and what is being targeted as an abstract ideology is in fact trans peoples’ rights to be transgendered . . .
That some feminists have chosen to periodically constitute us as a threat to feminism is beyond appalling.
ETA: Femmessay was somehow able to get past the stabbing pain and write a post.
