People are important. When you value life, you can honor and respect opposing view points. Some might not like that I’m a transsexual, or feel that I too appropriate other realities. I can disagree with other opinions, but their lives matter regardless of how their comments make me feel. The world doesn’t revolve around my feelings. The lack of respect for people, especially women, is why it was necessary for me to leave the trans movement. I saw that it was a misogynistic movement that expected women to be obedient. Women who don’t obey are labelled Trans Exclusionary Radical Feminist (TERF) and targeted with abuse. Regardless of how you feel, transwomen, radical feminists are people and entitled to their analysis. If what they are saying isn’t true, then why do you work so hard to try to silence their voices? You have fallen for your political agenda that you fail to see the value in people. People deserve safety. Women are entitled to their safe spaces.
