A woman is whoever wants to be a woman

What has happened to people? What have they done with their brains?

Why do people – especially women, especially feminist women, but really any people – say things like that? When they’re so obviously absurd? So like baby talk? It’s just not true that a woman is whoever wants to be a woman, any more than it’s true that a tree is whoever wants to be a tree or a shark is whoever wants to be a shark. I’m pretty sure Naomi Wolf realizes that about other categories, so why does she think the rules suddenly vanish into thin air when the wants-to-be is a woman? Why does she think woman is the only category that’s fungible in that way? Why does she think that if Trump decided he wants to be a woman he would be a woman simply because he wants to?
