Trans activists and biological women should be allies against male violence and oppression, which is what Rowling is saying, but trans activists won't acknowledge that certain elements of their movement could put all women in danger. And any time a woman suggests that trans activists could be more mindful of the harm their movement could do to women when trans activists allow their movement to be hijacked by men, trans activists sit back and say nothing while men abuse and threaten the woman, and they hale these men as their allies against the women they're harming.

You should have stopped after "Trans activists and biological women should be allies against male violence and oppression" JK Rowling has called trans women men and makes outt like they are a risk to women, which they are not. Trans women are in danger every day. If you ever want to understand it, just get one of your guy friends to dress as a woman, take them out to the supermarket or maybe to a bar and ask them how comfortable and safe they feel. Everyone should be mindful of the damage they can do to other people. That works both ways. It is not going to do any good by having trans women in men's loos and transmen use womens loos though, that will normalise make looking people in women's loos. You want to put trans women in with men? That is nuts and a completely disproportionate response on virtually zero evidence of crimes. It would make trans women's live so much more dangerous than they already are. The whole argument is made up and easy to see through, but people have their opinions and woe betide anyone who asks them to think about another perspective. And any time a woman suggests that terf activists could be more mindful of the harm their movement could do to trans women when terf activists allow their movement to be hijacked by men, terf activists sit back and say nothing while men abuse and threaten the woman, and they hale these men as their allies against the women they're harming.

Is this necessary to include transwomen or transmen into the existing category of women and men? Why not separate category for everyone? Every body has the right to live in peace with dignity.. every one is equal, above the distinction for race s*x caste or religion.. nobody's statement can take away that.. we must broaden our minds to accomodate facts that have remained hidden from us because of societal fear .
