Radical Feminists Deny Trans-Women Status

Valentina Sampaio - Victoria's Secret trans model

There is a debate as to whether trans-women – this meaning people who are born identified as male and who then transition – are real women.

People ask about whether they menstruate, whether they could carry children, whether they are really women.

It is said that, while trans-women may identify as women, this is more a fashion choice than a physical reality.

It is said that, while medical intervention, whether through hormone medication or surgery, can achieve an approximation of being a woman, essentially women are women and trans is trans.

On the other hand, trans-women insist that they are women.

This means that, for example, they should have access to women’s locker-rooms.

Critics say that this is a travesty of women’s rights and an act of appropriation which is also threatening.

Quoted text: ‘The American Humanist Association has withdrawn its humanist of the year award from Richard Dawkins, 25 years after he received the honour, criticising the academic and author for “demean[ing] marginalised groups” using “the guise of scientific discourse”.’

Richard Dawkins queried the difference between identifying and actual ‘fact’ – which he might term essential biological fact.

This is not currently in the mainstream of what it is good to say.
