“i don’t understand. last time i checked i am an adult human female? oh, is it because i have a penis that you think differently? lol sorry, biology isn’t up for debate, and i’m an adult human female~ “
do these fools not understand that they are defining away their ability to name their oppression? if you can have a penis and be female, then what on earth is trans? there is no trans, if females can have dicks. therefore there is no problem. and if men are hurting you because you try to appear as a woman but you have a dick, what is it? it’s not transphobia (or homophobia or misogyny), it’s nothing. it’s just coincidence that they’re hurting you. it’s no longer a hate crime, just some random crime. no longer a problem in society, simply that that guy didn’t like you. you are shooting yourselves in the foot.
just like women saying they aren’t women, they are ‘uterus-bearers’ and the problem is ‘femmephobia’. no it’s not. you cannot redefine your oppression out of existence, you are only making it harder to bring your oppressors to justice, because you’ll lose sight of who they are (trans people are not being oppressed by ‘cis people’, women are not being oppressed by ‘masculine people’ - how convenient that the oppressor is one and the same, and not named in either case… almost like they’re running the show… almost like we live in a… cismasculinarchy or something)
it’s the opposite of radical feminism, it’s the opposite of radical anything. instead of trying to get to the root, they are deliberately obscuring reality, because they think this smokescreen will shield them from harm. you are playing into the hands of your oppressors if you do this! this won’t make them stop!
