Transness is not a fucking political project and I find it unimaginably ridiculous to assume that Having More Trans Women is going to actually eliminate transmisogynistic structures of social oppression. Trans liberation is a political project, an important as fucking hell political project upon which the lives of a huge number of people depend, but this project won’t be advanced by looking at gross misogynistic cultures and assuming cis dudes are just Temporarily Embarrassed Trans Women, it will be achieved through activism, through fostering political consciousness among trans women (because in fact a large number of trans women are not politically militant), by active struggle against transmisogyny, not by greeting every dude friend you have with “have you considered Being A Woman”.
