if you ‘defend’ trans women by accusing twefs of ~disrespecting our identities~ or whatever, you’re basically doing the twefs’ work for them.
respond with materialism, talk about how women are constituted as a class regulated by sexual violence and how this works in the same ways for cis and trans women, talk about how twef ideology exposes us to greater sexual violence and death, talk about how ‘biological sex’ is ideology that maintains gender and discuss the actual complexities, etc. etc.
but don’t make it about ‘identity’ please because not only is that easy for them to ridicule, even if it’s accepted it still makes trans women into lesser/fake women.

September 2015 Ships of the Line calendar. Starfleet tugs “cleaning up” after Wolf 359 by
The top 3 images are details: 1. A tug strapping in a damaged Nova-class saucer; 2. A close-up of the tug “Annie” with Sphinx shuttles rescuing lifeboats and a type-7 shuttle launching; and 3. a tug towing a derelict Constitution-class saucer.
The fourth image shows Probert posing with the piece, and the last is all the images stitched together.
It is interesting that there is a Nova-class saucer there, as well as escape pods of the Sovereign or Akira type… I suppose we have to conclude that those classes were at least in development as of Wolf 359.
In 1982, Gregory Watson was a sophomore at the University of Texas, and he opted to write a term paper about constitutional amendments for a class. As part of his research, Watson discovered that an amendment proposed way back in 1789 limited congresspeople’s ability to raise their own salary. But it had never been ratified, partly because it had been more or less forgotten about, and partly because Congress likes money.
Watson wrote his paper about the proposed amendment, noting that nobody had ever put a time limit on it, so technically, after nearly two centuries, it could still be ratified. The class TA gave him a C, insisting that nobody cared about an obscure old amendment proposal about congressional salaries and that the idea that it could still be ratified was crazy, no matter how much “evidence” he dug up. Watson appealed to his professor, who told him the same thing.
Now, a C grade is the kind of mark most of us aspire to see one day, but Watson took it as an insult. There was only one way to prove that he was right, and that was to ratify the hell out of that amendment.
