Sometimes, I catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror and go “Hot damn, who is that drop dead gorgeous bitch over there?”. And then I remember, “ Oh yeah, it’s me”. I then give myself a flirtatious wink and carry on with my day.
I want someone to actually rationally explain why identifying as a different gender is different from identifying as a different race. If a white person was to wear henna, bindis, saris, speak hindi, and call themselves brown, you would flip out. Why is it different if a man says he really likes wearing heels, dresses, makeup, ~feels really emotional~, and calls himself a woman? How do men know what it is to feel like a woman? Before you say they //ARE// women, stop and think for a second. Being a woman is not a state of mind. It’s an experience that comes from being born and raised female. Why are women so ready to dismiss their own lived experiences and feelings for the comfort of men who claim to be women, it’s not a //feeling//. Tell me, give a rational answer that actually makes sense. If you’re uncomfortable with your body, do you think it’s logical to identify as another species? Can I transition into a cat? Do I know what being a cat is really like just by looking at how it lives? Can you open your fucking minds and try to understand just how sexist it really is for a man to say he understands what BEING a woman is like when he is not one. When he has never experienced being treated like a woman and reaped all the privilege of being a boy or a man. How is it not sexist to reduce the lived experience of being a woman to a state of mind that men magically know. How do you just willingly believe them just because they insist they are women? Will you call me a cat because I insist I am one? Use your fucking brains.
