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

I’m a ciswoman. And all I hear while reading this article is “I (the author) refuse to check my privilege in a world that is finally willing to call it out. I refuse to acknowledge the experiences of transwomen as real and valid.”

Are the experiences of ciswomen and transwomen different? Absolutely. But they are all the valid experiences of women. Check yourself. And stop complaining about not be listened to while refusing to listen.
