One Twitter user told me that “you have a working reproductive system so you are a woman”.
Umm, yes, I’d say that working ovaries, womb, fallopian tubes, they’re a pretty good indication of being a woman.
That you wish to be socially regarded as male is no problem at all. As a matter of politesse we might even run with it. But it’s not changing that underlying reality at all.
Just as calling a politician the Hon. is politesse, not a reflection of the underlying reality.
The trolls and naysayers can’t have it both ways. The bigoted arguments for denying Jenner a women’s award – namely that she was assigned male at birth
Anyone can give anyone they want to an award. But someone whose balls have created 5 (or is it 6?) children is male. Again, politesse, but that underlying reality ain’t changed.
