“Owen you’re gay . You wouldn’t dream of calling a het man a bigot or homophobe purely because he didn’t want to sleep with you . Nobody is calling you a bigot for not wanting sex with a trans man . Putting aside the – admittedly often problematic – language people often use to express their absolute right to veto sex with anyone , that is their absolute right . Heterosexual men don’t want to sleep with you and you don’t want to sleep with trans men .And – skirting about as much as you like , fling as many accusations as you wish (pointless as I’m nobody you can damage ) – WE ALL KNOW WHY.
Refusing to extend that absolute right – for whatever reason – to women , particularly lesbians – and bisexuals but mostly lesbians – (and calling them names)who won’t date trans persons is startling hypocrisy . AND YOU KNOW WHY.
Now , as to self I.D. Ok . You could Identify yourself as a refrigerator if you want – apart from knowing damn well nobody’s gonna expect you to dispense ice – Id wish you nothing less than a happy and safe life . And the same goes for trans persons . AGAIN , WE ALL KNOW WHY.
Nobody is saying trans persons are default = nefarious. But why -for instance – should female athletes who’ve trained for decades , face the prospect that the gold medal they’ve been chasing , will be taken by someone whose testosterone – even suppressed – is still ten times higher than theirs ? I wish you’d face female athletes and explain this , I surely do . But you won’t. Will you ?
Back to the nefarious . Have you ever heard of “Schrodinger’s rapist “? We know not all men are rapists , but they don’t wear badges . Who can tell a genuine harmless trans person from an imposter ? Women are jipped AND WE BOTH KNOW WHy. Now , doesn’t it follow that if anyone can identify into anyone’s space , anyone will? How would that make trans persons safer ?
It might even lead to a backlash . Why? Back to Schrodinger’s rapist . Not all men are rapists , but ALL women have to proceed as though they are , until they know either way .
So, the corollary is thus. If anyone can access female only space , the women within may well extend that mistrust to said “anyone “ , because – drumroll – ANYONE WILL HAVE TO MEAN EVERYONE , until we know either way .
