Trans women are women. Logically feminism cannot exclude trans women and still call itself feminism. I mean obviously it has a history of doing that. But it’s complete and utter bullshit.
Feminism by definition is for women. Trans women are women. Fat women are women. Women of colour are women. Disabled women are women. Poor women are women. Queer women are women. Mentally ill women are women.
The thing that gets me is the very premise of feminism is about dismantling power structures and oppressive institutions., Yet somehow early feminists decided to bring a bucket-load of those oppressive structures with them, and established them in the roots of the feminism movement.
Anyone who wants to promote some exclusive version of feminism can fuck right off.
This commentary makes it seem like it’s only early or outdated feminism that excludes so many groups of women. Sorry. Open eyes slightly wider. Feminism has these problems TODAY, right now.
