I am watching sexual predators strut around the white house. I am watching women feeding their children be yelled at harassed and shamed for the most natural act. I am being forced to see my own body as only sexual every fucking day when I get catcalled or try to go online dating. I am forced to either conform to men’s standards on my body or risk being ostracized by them. Even choosing not to wear makeup, even choosing not to want motherhood, brands me as not woman enough.
I am a Woman. You are a Trans Woman. And That Distinction Matters.

Us trans women often have to be caricatures of femininity just to get health care. We’re sexualized, harassed, murdered just for existing.

We face all of the same kinds of shit you do, and more besides.
