So, tell me Elinor Burkett, about how trans women don’t understand suffering.

I have now read the piece and your comment here mis-represents what she wrote. She was not stating that transwomen don’t suffer but rather that the experience of being a transwoman is uniquely different to being cisgendered, or a transman etc. etc.

Her article seems to be stating that there is a level of in-fighting amongst activists who could actually be supportive of one another (Which I agree with as I see it often) because of a hyper-need to police language. It’s a case of creating conversations rather than shutting them down by attacking the words people use and whether someone personally finds them offensive.

Like what you read? Give Kaitlyn S. C. Hatch a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
