A Twitter thread by @radicalhag
Transgenderism is a masculinist ideology. There is nothing feminist or pro-woman in it. It reifies gender stereotypes, erases the female body and then claims that men can colonise women based on their subjective feelings.
The prioritisation of the male mind over the female body is the defining feature of patriarchal thought, and always has been. Transgenderism is an analog for patriarchal religion. It’s part of the backlash against feminism.
It is also completely unnecessary for diagnosing and helping people with dysphoria, of course, which is why such people are called truscum by the movement. They reveal its claims to be sexist hot air.
