We should have learned from our past mistakes. Trans people have always been present in human society. Famously Marsha P Johnson, an American activist and trans woman, threw the first brick during the Stonewall riots in June Binary notions of gender — the idea that there are only men and women and everyone fits neatly into one of those two - are also a Christian invention, which spread across the globe as Christian countries colonised it. Numerous other cultures recognised a gender spectrum.
As a cis woman, I am supposed believe trans women are a threat to my rights to sex-specific healthcare, as well as being terrified that men wearing dresses are going to invade my private spaces like toilets and changing rooms to assault me. As a cis woman, I have specific medical needs based around the existence of my cervix, womb etc. Yet, as I am sure we can all agree, a woman is more than the sum of her reproductive parts.
A trans woman is just as much a woman as I am — Just a different sort of woman, with different needs.
Furthermore, trans women have been allowed to use female toilets and changing rooms for decades. Of course, I understand being terrified of predatory men. Most people are.
They need somewhere safe to go, too. Trans people in sports is more of a nuanced discussion in my opinion, particularly when considering physical education in schools. However, factors such as male bodies having on average stronger skeletal structures post-puberty, larger lung capacity and of course the impact of testosterone all make this more complex with teenagers.
