Anonymous asked: saying that trans women are men and shouldn't join a womens sports team is really transphobic... :/
It isn’t transphobic at all to point out that male bodied people (men) shouldn’t be on an all womens sports team. Solely ‘Identifying as a woman’ should not qualify someone to join a womens only space.
^everyone please unfollow this transphobic garbage
Did you send me these messages? Why are you calling me garbage in the name of feminism? This is so ridiculous
*calls self feminist* *is transphobic* that’s not how it works sweetie
ok I am a radical feminist. I support womens only space. If you have a problem with this for whatever reason get off my blog, stop calling me ‘sweetie’ and stop messaging me.
i support womens spaces too, and that includes trans women because trans women are women.
transwomen are biologically and socialized male. sorry. you cannot identify out of your birth sex and no amount of surgery can change it. im sorry i’m not the best at wording it but i hope this might make my point a little clearer
"socialized as a male" wtf even. i can assure you that trans women experience the issues that cis women do (rape culture, domestic abuse, etc) and actually, trans people are more likely to be victims of sexual assault than cis women. but yeah here is a site with lots of good references
transwomen do not experience the same issues as women because they do not experience sex based oppression. including:
female genital mutilation
abortion and forced pregnancy
lack of sexual education
female socialization from infancy (x)
what u r talking about aren’t women’s issues, they’re people with vagina’s issues. trans men and non-binary people with vaginas experience those issues. also the whole “socialized as female” thing is bullshit. trans women get cat called, raped, beaten, murdered. i bet you’ve met women in your life that you didn’t know were trans. trans people don’t walk around with shirts saying “hi i’m trans!!!” so how can a trans women be “socialized as a male” if people don’t even know that she has a penis?
also, what about intersex people? what would you say to them?
wow. “people with vaginas”? we’re called women. Transwomen don’t always pass. and they were treated as boys before transitioning. what about intersex people? they have nothing to do with this?
no, they’re not called women. i have a vagina, and sometimes i am not a woman. if a trans woman doesn’t “pass” as a woman, that is a direct result of transphobia and the patriarchy. it’s because of gender roles. and yikes, please don’t assume that they’re all treated as boys before transitioning. even if they were, they’re still being ~socialized as women~ now. not that that even matters. you don’t have to be “socialized as a woman” to be one. i bet there’s also cis women you thought were men because of how they express themselves. are they not women?
and i brought up intersex people because it’s relevant. what gender are people that have both “female” and “male” traits? are they genderless to you? do you call them “it”?
also, if you misgender anyone one more time then just a heads up, i’m done with this. at least everyone knows you’re a transphobic asswipe now.
how to be a woman: identify as one
