There is literally no reason for a male-bodied person to be in a group about breast-feeding, vaginal mesh, menstruation, etc.

Think about it. *What possible fucking excuse does a male-bodied person have to be there??* Does his “validation” trump our right to have these discussions about ourselves without feeling watched by a man, a man we suspect of being a pervert, even though he swears he isn’t? Does the self-label “transwoman” automatically confer immunity from perversion, any possibility of harassment towards others, or really any fucking reason at all to be there, since it still does not confer those causes for which those very groups exist?

WOMEN’S HEALTH GROUPS EXIST FOR WOMEN. THEY DO NOT EXIST TO VALIDATE MEN’S FEELINGS.

I love this.

The truth is, in most situations that I can realistically envision, I wouldn't feel safe saying no but would instead just stop attending the groups myself.
