I’m not confused about the separation of gender identity (man/woman/etc) and sex (female/male/intersex). I mean, I also studied Feminism 101 which claims they are different i.e. that a trans woman still has a male body. So y’all don’t need to send me any more asks explaining the difference.
But what people are trying to say is that gender identity is ALSO biological. You can’t separate your genitals from your brain and claim one is “anatomy” and one isn’t. Your brain is part of your anatomy. Your brain is part of your biology.
So the point is, you can’t claim sex is biological but gender isn’t.
That is what the current discussion is about.
We’re all familiar with the old gender vs sex concept, this conversation is questioning the validity of that assertion. And I for one think it’s well worth our time as a community to rethink second wave feminist ideas we’ve all been conditioned with.
If trans women are telling us we need to redefine our ideas on sex and gender, we need to listen to them.
Why should a trans woman be forced to identify as a male?
Seems ridiculous to me.
