If the transgender movement had drawn clear lines in the sand, that they were not willing to cross:

  • no one is forced to use certain pronouns for transgendered people
  • the words men and women clearly assigned based on sex
  • no medicalisation whatsoever of minors
  • protection of women only spaces/categories (shelters, changing rooms, sports, prisons,...)
  • no changing of sex on legal documents
  • chosing medical transition as a last resort
  • accepting that hetero/homosexuality are clearly linked to sex and not gender (while of course sexual attraction based on gender expression would not be discriminated against either)

While at the same time they would be very actively promoting acceptance of transgender identity in society. Working for protections of trans people, representation of trans people, mental health support, ...

Where would you be on the trans issue then?

I personally would definitely be an active supporter. Particularly because I would see it as a movement that is helpful in weakening gender restrictions, which I would love.

I always thought the concept was weird and couldn’t see how it was not based on sexism and gender stereotypes, but I believed the myth about them being super vulnerable and harmless so I was a “live and let live” type. I’d still be in that state of mild cognitive dissonance I suppose. Maybe it’s a good thing for me personally that they woke me up to the reality of woman-hating and what psychos men can be.

I never would have found real feminism if it weren't for all of their craziness, so thanks TRAs!

Absolutely agree! We women are so used to patriarchy's brainwashing, that we are able to swallow most of pseudo-feminisms (liberal feminism) BS. But something about TRAs, is prime peak material - not just on that one matter, but to the overall reality partiarchical oppression.
