I have to say in with Troy here.
I'm uncomfortable with displaying my genitals as they are in public settings but FOR MY SAFETY not that of others.

The idea other women should fear me because they were assaulted by MEN (NOT TRANS WOMEN. You've just leaned into one of the most heavily weaponised trans misogynistic tropes around, Emma. For shame) does not imply a damn thing about trans women. My wife was a victim of rape. She's able to separate trans women from men. She can also tell the difference being having a penis and being a sex criminal. I too have been sexually assaulted. And neither do I assume that all men are rapists. Quite apart from the fact that the person who assaulted me was a woman.

And that brings me to the corollary... I'm a lesbian. Should women fear my presence generally? That shit was being hurled at lesbians and gay men 30-40 years ago.

This kind of alarmism, underwritten by a puritanical regard for other people's bodies, is horribly ill-judged.

Honestly apologism of this nature is simple ammunition for our critics. 'See... Even a trans woman says it's wrong'. I've seen those words way too often.

Much love as ever, Emma. But I can't back this one.
