Divorcing the word woman from female biology separates women from their sex-based rights. It is misogyny, and in plain sight.
If straight men can reinvent themselves as lesbian women, lesbian groups risk being over-run.
Ideological virtue signalling does not advance trans rights or battle transphobia…it trivialises them
