Just found this from a couple of years ago. Shes says so much, so well.
So much to learn from this. Its a great lesson for men and warm, compassionate and accessible explanation of why women have to have women's spaces and set their own boundaries.
Again and again I hear people criticise women generally, and feminists in particular, for not accepting transwomen as “real” women and for “excluding” them. Trans people are oppressed, they say, and these so-called exclusionary behaviours and attitudes create the dogma behind this oppression just as racism is the dogma behind the oppression of Black people. It is misguided, they say, and dangerous and is called transphobia, which makes you, me, anyone who doesn’t agree with them, a bigot who deserves to go to hell with all fascists and racists.
