just published a long but thorough piece: "Making Sense of #Autogynephilia Debates." It's an "explainer" that makes several novel points. here's the "friend link" (no paywall) – pls share & give lots of "claps" (up to 50!) so others will see it! medium.com/@juliaserano/m… #trans
1st two sections are reviews of arguments & evidence against #autogynephilia theory (old hat for some). the novel part is the last section, where I explain the many underlying rationales & ideologies that lead ppl to find the theory compelling, despite lack of scientific validity
...I will share excerpts from the piece on this thread tomorrow, so stay tuned! in the meantime, if you appreciate this work, and the fact that I make pieces like this freely available, please consider supporting me on Patreon! patreon.com/juliaserano/ov…

For me, the real issue in the #trans #GRA reform is #maleviolence against #female & trans. I note #transmen seem to be absent from discussion. They obvs don't present as #women so don't use women's spaces. But they can't draw attention to themselves as trans because... (1/2)
(2/2) in a male space they would run the risk of attack by men who would see their bodies as still female. I can't find stats on transmen being violent, or female violence on transmen. I guess there will be some, but very small no's. The problem is male violence. #patriarchy...
So we need to be looking at #male #violence and how/why our society raises #boys to think violence is a way of dealing with the world. NB I know this is a generalisation and not all males are violent & not all females are peaceful!
