calling a woman female is not cissexism. trans women are female and saying we are not is misgendering us and is violence. biological sex is a social construct, one that is used to perpetuate all kinds of bullshit that contributes to a culture of transphobia
The tag/answer was us trying to check ourselves on this manner. We’ve gotten asks that have asked us to tag posts that equate “female” and “female-bodied” (inferring specific genitalia and body parts like a uterus and breasts) to “woman”/”womanhood” (instead of recognizing that all women’s bodies are female bodies, regardless of parts) as casual cissexism or casual transphobia. We’ve been told that we’ve reblogged posts that have used female when they should’ve used woman and need to be tagged, so we were trying to be careful with this.
We’re always trying to check ourselves and our language. So we definitely apologize if we were cissexist ourselves and made this space unsafe. Thank you for reaching out to us. If you (or any followers) have suggestions for how to better look out for and tag our stuff, please let us know.
