Quick note to trans women re intersectionality:

Feminism was created by, about, and for human beings born female to address and fight against the ways in which females as a sex class are oppressed by males as a sex class (aka patriarchy). Intersectionality when applied to feminism is meant to highlight that although all females suffer under patriarchy, the exact manifestations of a female’s oppression can be and often is different depending upon other intersecting axes such as race, ethnicity, socio-economic class, religion, region, ability, sexual orientation, etc.

One of those intersecting axes is NOT birth sex. NO female is oppressed for having been born male because this would be a paradox.

What this means is that when trans women assert or imply that intersectional feminism necessarily requires feminists to shift focus from issues unique to females to issues affecting male-born people (trans women), this is yet another appropriation, derail, dilution of a movement meant to empower females. It’s Patriarchy As Usual™. Please stop doing this.

This is some fucked up transphobic bullshit. Trans women are women. Period.

Trans women don’t have periods.
