In common

That’s some very feeble reasoning. Men are the most likely to hurt anyone simply because men are stronger than women; that doesn’t mean less muscular men are women’s sisters. Men don’t become our sisters by getting beaten up by men. Having something in common with a set of people isn’t the same as that set of people morphing into a different set of people. There isn’t some werewolf or vampire moment when a man who has been hurt by a stronger man undergoes a Transformation and emerges as A Woman.

And it isn’t the same fight. It’s a radically different fight. Figuring out how to live as what you are is radically different from deciding you’re not what you are and are in fact the opposite.
