Attributing ‘cis’ to lesbians (and gay men) fundamentally ignores what it means to be homosexual; the terms ‘cis lesbian’ and ‘cis gay man’ is homophobic.
The dishonesty of all parties is revealed by the fact this was blamed on ‘extreme feminists’. The lying bastards.
I disavow use of the word ‘woman’ for myself and other transgender males. Further, I take an abolitionist stance on gender, I am not ‘gender critical’ as this implies the system can be fixed.
There is a danger that gender non-confirming behaviour in children is being interpreted not as this being a child who will grow up to be homosexual, rather our feminine boys and masculine girls are being perceived to be and treated as being “transgender”.
The words of males like Juno say so much about how they, and other males, see women; this provides insight into how the transgender male’s ‘transition’ can be interpreted as an expression of male sexuality.
Women are policing other women’s language, which is, in itself, a form of oppression. Women are denying women the opportunity to express their experiences as a woman.
Most importantly, those who are transgender should learn to accept themselves how and as they are without shame and understand that the people they owe the most to, and can learn the most from, are women.
