It is very important for transgender women activists to destroy the concept of “shared girlhood.” If they do not destroy it, if they do not erase the class of humans called “women,” Women will begin to realize that transgender women are, in fact, Men.
Transgender women did not experience #sharedgirlhood because they were, in fact, little boys. And they are, in fact, Men.
Being groomed into the subordinate “gender role” afforded to those born female is not a privilege. What Queer Feminism does to Women is Lie to Us.

One of my favorite philosophers, if one actually has favorite philosophers, is David Hume. If you don’t know David Hume, watch this helpful video.
David Hume was an Empiricist. Empiricism is the idea that you derive “knowledge” from EVIDENCE. EVIDENCE includes facts, information, and data that demonstrates that a particular belief is “true” or valid.
