Happy International Women's Day: Women Born With Transsexualism &/or Intersex Reject Misgendering Ideologies & Promote Only Affirming & Accurate Messaging.
Happy International Women's Day! A lot of great work is happening to ensure women born with transsexualism and/or intersex are recognized and affirmed as WOMEN, and not sub-women, “third genders” or female impersonators, which is contrary in how the national LGBT and transgender-queer groups are misgendering and othering us. We denounce the pro-gender-segregation ideologies and transsexual-phobia that is misrepresenting and harming us. We won't stop advocating for our women’s rights until our medical needs and accurate narratives are protected! Why?:
Because a Rose Is Still A Rose [Not a sub-rose, not a modified rose, not a rose impersonator, not a 2nd class rose, not only a rose on the weekends, not a rose mocker, not acting on some rose fetish, not a plastic rose, not simply "expressing" a few rose characteristics, not condescendingly "identifying" as a rose -- but from the seed, rooted as and blossomed into its natural destiny: A ROSE - inside, and out, from it's origin, always and forever, a rose, period. Please, PLEASE keep your weeds, fake chemicals and pollutants out of the garden, or don't act clueless or attack when the rose uses her protective thorns to sheild herself from entities or non-roses who would do her harm, thank you]
