When I first attempted to ask in conversations and online, why there is not space for cis women to express their needs in this conversation, I was met with slurs, threats, and even a death threat.
I am a Woman. You are a Trans Woman. And That Distinction Matters.

You’re literally trying to tell us trans women that we should consider your needs when we’re talking about our lives.

Trans women are constantly told by cis women that we’re not women, or that we’re not “real” women, or that our womanhood is conditional. We are women, and having that accepted and respected is all we are asking for.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
