Well it’s a erm very male perspective on both the problems and the solutions.

That’s not to say I don’t like it. I do.

However, as a woman, who lived as a man for half a century, and as someone with infinite respect who men who want to make the world better for the women they love, here’s where I think you went a little wrong…

It’s not for you, as a man, to fix this.

The best thing you can do is step back and let the women you love do the fixing. They know how. They have the capacity, the strength, the know how. But they need you previously locked arm men protecting your privilege to break ranks, step aside and let them in.

That’s it. That’s all. Just step back.

And those women you are so passionate about will make the change they need, in their way. Their respect for you will grow.

And they’ll love you all the more for it.

Says the trans lesbian. Lmao

Keep being an ally. We’ll all get there one day.

Much love, many hugs
