The only thing that is missing from this deceitful treatise is what man and woman mean. What is the relation between the term male and the term man?

Blind means can’t see. There is a rich tapestry of cultural meaning associated with blindness. There’s history, metaphor, literature, discrimination, medical treatments, spirituality, depictions of blindness in art and literature. But before any of those meanings could attach, blindness had to exist on its own. There had to be an individual organism from a species that evolved sight, who could not see.

If all the cultural meanings of blindness suddenly disappeared for some reason, the condition of blindness could still exist.

So it is with sex. Sex and gender are related concepts. Like stars and astrology. Or race and racism. Or potato and French fries. You can have potatoes and no French fries, a sad state of affairs. But you can’t have French fries without potatoes. And you can’t have gender without sex. Sex is what gender is about, what it attaches to. Trans identity is utterly dependent on the near perfect regularity of sex.

Without sex, gender is meaningless. Without distinct sexes, “trans” is meaningless. Trying to hide sex, which arises without human intervention or knowledge, behind gender discourses won’t make it go away. Babies will keep being born from female humans who have mated with male humans.

It just makes it hard or impossible for the people gender is intended to hurt: women, to talk about our lives and act in the political realm.

I was just going to comment on how insane these people are, but your response is much better and more thorough!
