While I understand why folks argue this, it relies on omitting a few things: a key aspect of socialization called response, what privilege actually is, and, naturally, the lived experiences of trans women.Not just this, but the socialization argument also relies on a caricature of trans women as men in dresses. I am so tired of hearing the same old tired arguments from TERFs and from DFAB trans people who throw trans women under the bus in exchange for less violence on themselves (will henceforth be categorized in the acronym TERF).TERFs invoke the ‘socialization’ argument in order to call trans women “men” and to give DFAB trans people a nudge and a wink, that they’re really female.but it also perpetuates the myth of shared girlhood, which has already been disassembled by women of color particularly along with fellow trans women.As Reed puts it, “There is no singular, universal woman’s narrative.
Burkett argues that “people who haven’t lived their whole lives as women” shouldn’t get to define what being a woman means.
During breeding, the female will lay sometimes thousands of eggs, depending on the species and her size, usually on a pre-cleaned rock or coral close to the anemone they live in.
After the eggs are laid, the male will go along and fertilize them.
TERFs willfully misuse the word ‘socialization’ to misgender trans women and treat us as malicious “men,” saying trans women are and have been perpetrators of male violence, because us trans women pre-coming out and pre-transition must experience malehood and therefore male privilege.
They generally base this off how we are read when we are younger, meaning read as male and treated as such.
