My ideal body is one that isn't hyper-sexualized by men, hyper-regulated/restricted by men, and doesn't put me at a higher risk for sexual and other types of violence. My ideal body doesn't come with femininity that's mandatory for me to perform. My ideal body is one that I don't have to shave, wax, or chemically burn. My ideal body is just accepted for what it is and not constantly nit-picked and compared to an impossible standard. My ideal face is one that I don't have to smother in makeup just to go outside.

What does all of that make me? Because while the TRAs would say that my feelings about my ideal body make me not a woman, what I'm describing is how the world treats bodies that are explicitly female.

That sounds like agender. It's a basic human right for you to have your brain extracted and put in a jar.

You mean I can finally fulfill my Cartesian skeptical dream of being a brain in a vat?
