Trans women are women. Say that over and over. And over.
What is a woman? A woman is anyone who identifies as a woman. What are they identifying “as”? That is different for each person. Woman is defined in a unique way by every self-identified woman, as long as those definitions do not include the reproductive biology of sexual dimorphism, which is a social construct. Women are not female, because some people classified as female are men, who are male.
But Trans women are female and Trans men are male. Because women are female, and men are male. Female and male are not biological categories denoting reproductive specificity because there are no such stable categories. And if there were, it would be wrong to name them, because identifying any category of humans with a term based on a physical characteristic they all share (tall, diabetic, brunette) erases their humanity and reduces them to nothing but that characteristic. Also categorizing people based on sex is salacious and untoward because you’re referring to their genitals. Which you shouldn’t do. How rude! What is wrong with you? Female and male have a unique meaning for everyone who identifies as such, one that is unrelated to lowly and salacious mammalian sexual categories, which don’t exist outside our wrongful attempt to create them. There are no does and bucks. Only deer. Some with front holes, others with rape sticks.
Trans women are women. Trans women are female. Trans men are men. Trans men are male. Repeat that a few times.
Woman is defined in a unique way by every person who identifies as such, except never in relation to reproductive biology, and never in relation to coercively imposed sex stereotypical behaviors such as elaborate grooming regimes, impractical clothing, and shoes which handicap the wearer. These are optional expressions of womanhood, not a defining feature of women, which is a category of person with no universally coherent definition.
Woman is also never defined by “femininity”, a cluster of trained social behaviors that are enforced upon uterus-havers from birth based on reproductive biology: compulsory emotional labor, showing teeth, feigned incompetence, deference to males. This conduct is quite literally compelled under force of violence upon uterus-having people from birth, in order to ritualize their perpetual submission to the penis-havers and maintain the social order of male supremacy over females. But for people with penises they may be optional self-expressions of what woman, which has no universal or objective traits, is.
To recap: Trans Women Are Women! Trans Women Are Female! Woman has no particular characteristic or definition beyond identification with an unspecified state of being, which is also called female, which is also lacking in defined meaning. Sex stereotypes enforced on people who gestate offspring in order to ritualize their subordination to the people who cannot, are optional forms of expression of this state.
There is only one form of womanhood that exists as a clearly defined class of people with shared embodiment and experience, and unless you are a fucking TERF you know for damn sure it ain’t the lowly gestating front-hole havers.
Trans Women Are Women and Trans Women Are Female but Female Women Can Not Be Trans Women.
All people can be women. All women are female. All women, including penis-havers and uterus owners are female and can be trans. Woman, Female, and Trans, are self-defined categories with no universal meaning or definition and no shared experience or embodiment. People who identify as women can also identify as trans. But only women born with dick and balls form a cohesive class of women whose shared biology and cultural experience must be named and respected.
You will respect the terms as defined by your penis-having overlords!
Sex matters, but only for those people whose humanity really counts: Men.

Women no longer have the right to a word to identify ourselves, because men demanded the right to our name. Men are now women. “Female” no longer describes our demographic because men demanded that we should never, ever be discussed or identified or named under any circumstance. We are the people who must no longer be named.
Men are now female. All men have the right to be recorded as female for our highest honors “Woman of the Year” (Bruce Jenner) and “Top Woman Director in Hollywood” (Andy Wachowski) and “Highest Earning Female CEO” (Martin Rothblatt). They skew our crime statistics with their over represented male violence recategorized as female. All of this is supported at the highest levels of male dominated media, government, medicine and industry.
But they cry, lord how they cry, when female members of their own transgender community take their self-identification rhetoric to heart.
There’s been thousands of male “transwomen” proxies taking women’s places. Lets see how these men react if women do the same.
Boo fucking hoo.
