karbatal Posted June 11, 2020 Share Posted June 11, 2020 9 hours ago, nefarious said: I am a detransitioned butch lesbian woman. I identified as trans for 10 years because I hated being female and thought that made me a boy. It's been a hard journey into loving myself, to say the least (I've only just switched my gender marker on this website). I'm starting to undo the years of damage that gender ideology has done to me. I really do think butch lesbians and gender non-conforming kids in general are being pushed to transition - or, if that upsets you, perhaps "pushed" is the wrong word. Let's just say peer pressure and social media play a big part. I know I wouldn't have known such a thing as transition was possible without social media sucking me in with false promises. Because I've experienced (and still struggle with) gender dysphoria, I have enormous sympathy and respect for trans people. And just because I was wrong in my transition, doesn't mean their journey is the same. Still, I have to say, I stand Jk on this one. Biological sex is a fact. Women are oppressed because of their biological sex, not their "identity", and they deserve sex separate spaces away from men. You may disagree with me and that's okay. Can we just agree that the issue really isn't black and white, to say the least. Of course everyone has a story. About very serious issues. I hope you get psychologically better. And just like "it's not all black and white" it would be important to say that transgender women are not fighting for the right to menstruate, but mainly to be able to be recognised as woman in administrative matters. Also to bring awareness of the bullying and discrimination they suffer. Let's not fall in Rowling's trap here. It would be like demanding the right to have gay couples recognised and some bigot speaking of surrogate parenthood. Two very different issues.
