And to state the obvious, this is totally incoherent.

Which is why that poor young novice philosophy professor, meaning well, got so savagely attacked for making the rather compelling case that every argument for transgenderism can work for transracialism.
The “white people cannot be black because they haven’t grown up having the black experience” argument is supposed to WORK for race. But if you say “men cannot become women because they haven’t grown up having women’s experience under Patriarchy” … you’re a hateful, bigoted TERF.
But they are, of course, the same argument: “Person P who is A cannot become B where A and B are socially constructed roles, if P has not had the full lived experience of being (assigned as) B from the beginning."
In the case of trans the “assignment” of gender is supposed to be a MIS-assignment that MUST be corrected.

In the case of race, the “assignment” of race CONSTITUTES your race forever. There CAN BE no “mis-assignment” since the assignment CREATES the REALITY.
Of course, one has to wonder how there can BE a “mis-assignment” at all, in the case of trans — since there just is no natural fact of the matter to “get wrong” about gender.

Or is there?
If a man “feels like” a women “inside”, then he (or rather “she”) really IS a woman.

If a white person “feels like” a black person “inside,” then he … is lying. No white person can “feel like” a black person inside. It is IMPOSSIBLE. And racist.

In the “lived experience” of race, the “lived experience” of the GROUP (e.g. blacks or whites) trumps the individual, and IMPOSES their socially-contructed-but-immutable identity UPON them.

In the “lived experience” of women, the “lived experience” of the INDIVIDUAL trans wins.
That is to say, “women” are an inferior minority to “blacks.”

They are a lower caste of marginalized.
Some women may even be “white”—and therefore barely women at all.
White women are BASICALLY men, that is WHITE men. Because they’re white.

And whiteness is ever so much more important a fact of one’s identity than being female.
