When I see an application for a women's program and it says "open to all female-identifying people," I don't submit because: 1. It means I'm competing against men for spots that should be for women, & 2. I have a problem with this choice of words used to describe my sex. [more]
I am female and I do not "identify" as my sex, in the same way that I don't let sexist stereotypes limit the choices that I make. I will not identify with my oppression because it's not possible for anyone to "identify" out of oppression. #SexNotGender #WomanMeansSomething
You can fight oppression, but you cannot deny that it exists. As a woman, I can call myself a man and force everyone to call me a man- but it won't stop the misogyny against me just because I attempted to "identify" out of my sex class. #WomenWontBeErased

@TheAdvocateMag @Amanda_Kerri I would, except your activists told me that “PTSD from sexual assault is a slippery slope” when I had concerns about being alone with intact males in vulnerable female spaces. Oh- and when TRAs started shaming and harassing Ls + Gs for their exclusive homosexuality. #homophobia
@TheAdvocateMag @Amanda_Kerri When TRAs called a woman who suffered from male violence and sexual abuse a “bigot” when she requested a *female* nurse for her cervical exam because she wasn’t comfortable with male hands on her body... #misogyny #MeToo #boundaries
@TheAdvocateMag @Amanda_Kerri ... When TRAs ganged up on *Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie*, celebrated feminist author, for saying “Trans women are trans women,” I thought maybe it’s against my best interests to support any activism that wishes to erase my sex class from having any meaning. #WomanMeansSomething
