You missed the main point I was trying to make.

With respect you spent an awful lot of words speaking for every woman, young, old, and in between in the midst of your post that was just about you. I totally respect your feelings of distaste and aversion to the idea in question but I find it hard to take it seriously when you speak as if your life experience must be the standard, the default, the baseline for all women. The impression I got is you feel as if you know enough of what it is to be a woman to speak for all women. Maybe you do, I certainly don’t know one way or the other, but when I hear someone speak for an entire class it tends to make me trust their judgement less rather than more.

I am a member of many classes, but I can not speak for any of them beyond what I have experienced or witnessed. I’d like to think I wouldn’t dismiss the reality of other members of a class I belong who have a different frame of conception than I do.
