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

As a cis male I don’t feel the same level of apprehension toward trans males as you relate. I don’t feel revulsion toward their pre-op lack of male genitalia. I think the difference is that my fear of women is much different than your fear of men. I fear the scorn and rejection of women so I would never seek to reject one struggling with gender identity. You seem to fear for your personal safety around men so it seems appropriate to be wary of trans women.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
