(in the research, “women” is restricted to people who were born in a body that made the adults around them go, “It’s a girl!” and then were raised as girls and grew into the psychological identity and social role of “women;” of course there are lots of people who identify as women for whom one or more of those things aren’t true, but… cisheteropatriarchy is everywhere. Sorry.)

I love that you put this in here. So often when I’m writing a piece looking at a very specific subject I’m aware of the detractors who will cling to something related but not essential to what I’m trying to get at.

This is so beautifully expressed as an aside acknowledgement of the different identities of people whilst also pointing out that THIS article is about a particular, specific experience.
