One of the most bonkers things I get from the TERFs on Twitter is that I’m sexist towards women (not just me – all trans girls). One once wrote that this blog is “dripping in misogyny”. Nothing could be further from the truth – I adore women so much that I want to become one, FFS! Anyway, I went on a hen do on Saturday, and that just reinforced the love and respect I have for women. WOMEN ARE AWESOME!!!
Butterflies seem to be an important part of the symbolism of being transgender, especially for those about to transition, leaving that ugly caterpillar body behind, entering a second-puberty chrysalis and then emerging as a beautiful creature at the end of it all.
I began writing this post many months ago (I didn’t get past the headline) and I still don’t really have a definitive answer about whether I’m really non-binary or whether I’m kidding myself. Hopefully writing this will give me some clarity.
With about 50,000* followers on Twitter, transwoman India Willoughby is one of the most well known transgender people in the UK. But she’s just plain WRONG on a fair few issues. It’s time to set the record straight.
