I am a Woman. You are a Trans Woman. And That Distinction Matters.

Thank you so much for this. I am a 60 year old lesbian feminist. I have been trying so hard to articulate my feelings about needing women-only space, why trans women are different than women-born-women etc. while being respectful, inclusive, all those wonderful feminist values that I cherish, and find that, like you, I get torn down and left feeling unheard. Admittedly, I’ve not had death threats however I have felt a lot like a pariah in some circles so I quietly go away…I’ve shared your article. It says exactly what I have been trying to say…only better than I’ve been saying it!
