No they exists. I have trans uncles and aunts. But they told me the same thing. They are the reason i have the viewpoint.
You say i am invalidating their existene. But how? Their own experiences shape them and it is not a manner of being a man or a woman.
It is a whole other deal. And placing them in boxes just seems odd. People are fluid. Gender identity is fluid.
But your body is your body.
You seem to be unable to see people in more than one way.
To peg a trans woman and a cis woman as the same is wrong
It is like saying you don’t see race or color
As a white person you don’t get to make that statement
A transwoman cannot claim to be a woman and face the same issues as women do
A female to male trans cannot claim to face the same stigma as men. They face a whole other type of stigma and taking hormones does not fix this. Nor does plastic surgery.
But then my belief in the third sex. Sorry gender identity and sex really throw people off. My belief is people are born certain ways. And life shapes them.
When i hear of people having gender reveal parties for their transitioned child. I mean. Things about never feeling comfortable in their body or looking in the mirror.
Body dismorphia is sad
But still i won’t consider a trans woman a woman. They are their own sex
