I don’t. Disabled cis women don’t experience sexualization, do they cease to be women because of it? What of childfree women, who have chosen to never be mothers? What of a woman born with no uterus, who cannot menstruate or get pregnant?

There is no way to draw this line that doesn’t also capture people who we would culturally consider women without a second thought.
