Impossible, harmful, and I think it should be said: mean spirited.

Trans exclusionary feminists seem highly motivated to exclude trans women from women’s spaces, often bringing up issues of safety, even in light of data indicating that safety is not a problem.

But here’s the thing. If gender doesn’t exist, then why should these radical “feminists” concern themselves with the problem at all?

Aren’t they implicitly recognizing gender when they presume that biological “men” will behave in dangerous, stereotypical ways? Isn’t that to presume gender?

I don’t think they have their theoretical ducks in a row.
