This is a funny scene from Life of Brian:
But since I am on a rampage TODAY, talking about random stuff, I know how some ppl like to say that transgender women are not women, but men, because they "can't have babies."
Well, neither can I. Not since my 20's. Not since having the hysterectomy, which wasn't my fault & I had no control over.
It isn't the fault of transgender women that they can't have babies. They also have no control over it.
Not being able to "have babies" doesn't make me a man, or less of a woman. If that were the case, then there's a lot of post-menopausal old ladies out there who are apparently men L.
If someone who wasn't born a woman wants to be a woman & be referred to by others as a woman, then just call her a woman.
