He is wrong right from the get go with the "phenotype constructed from traits" BS. He is talking about secondary sex characteristics, not primary sex characteristics. Conflating secondary sex characteristics with sex is an old TRA trick to confuse people who aren't biologists. This guy is lying through his teeth if he actually is a biologist or dangerously misinformed if he isn't. You cannot change your actual sex by changing your "phenotype" aka your secondary sex characteristics.

Taking estrogen does not mean your hormone profile matches a woman's. If women only produced estrogen, there would never be a pregnancy. They really know nothing about female biology.

And yet no bigot would argue that a ribbon eel is still a male after losing its yellow stripe and laying eggs.

Cool. I'll stop labelling a TiM as male when they can generate their own ova. Not transplants. Their own eggs, without any surgical intervention.

It's their own critia.

So many words when he could have just written: i NEED you to pretend I'm a woman or else i don't get good peen feels :(((

We aren't fish. Fish and frogs change sex but we aren't either of those.

Different species can do different things! Amazing, huh?

Breaking news: humans are fish. For my next baby I will simply lay my eggs somewhere in the bathtub and my nigel will fertilize them. No more morning sickness, hooray!

No more morning sickness, round ligament pain, sciatica, pelvic prolapse, preclampsia, gestational diabetes, c-section, 4th degree tearing, cardiomyopathy, etc.etc. all these men wanting uterus transplants have no idea what they're asking for.

So we're just gonna ignore mammalian gamete production? Honey, you've mutilated yourself, but you're still biologically male.

I am so distressed and kind of ashamed of how this nonsense has even seeped into hard sciences.
