"Someone who is born female. Or, an AMAB individual with gender dysphoria that transitioned to a woman."

So this includes TiFs right?

"Anyone who lives and is perceived as a female individual. In practice, that's what a woman is. You see one you know she's a woman"

I thought transwomen didn't owe it to you to pass. I also thought you couldn't see someone's gender identity. What about all those beautiful ladies with bushy beards, massive shoulders, Adams apples - oh and the whole sausage and eggs downstairs?

Why are this person being so mean? This is literally violence.

This is the truscum subreddit. They've been labelled as "scum" by the other trans people who consider passing to be indeed a form of privilege.

Funny how we can clock them all. So, no, they aren’t perceived as “female”.

Even if a man is able to successfully disguise himself as a female, he's still a male doing just that. In any category--race, ethnicity, age, disability, sex, etc., intentionally impersonating another group doesn't actually make you a member of that group, even if you are successful. Rachel Dolezal has always been white, no matter how many people perceived her as black. I'm sure she had genuine racism directed at her under that pretense. None of that changed the fact she was nothing other than a white person pretending to be black. And unlike sex, race IS a social construct--doesn't change the fact that according to that construct, she has never been black.

🤦‍♀️

"Assigned Male at Birth", as TRAs have stolen it, is someone born male, idiots.

If both male born and female born people can become "women" then it loses its meaning.

Or, an AMAB individual with gender dysphoria that transitioned to a woman.

This still isn’t a definition. You need to actually define what a woman is, since you’ve used it in your answer. And you can’t refer to the first definition for this, because you can’t transition into someone born female.

How do you answer the question "What is a woman? "

I'm sure people have heard of this question, mainly asked by conservatives pushing transphobic rhetoric (in my experience at least), which is "what defines a woman?" And I was wondering what this community's stance would be on it.

When this questions comes up, people conveniently seem to forget words very often have multiple meanings.

Anyone who lives and is perceived as a female individual. In practice, that's what a woman is. You see one you know she's a woman
