It’s not good enough

It just amazes me how cheerfully some men can dismiss women’s rights without pausing for even a second to remember that other people’s rights aren’t theirs to dismiss.

Actually we don’t “agree are the dreadful outcomes for trans men and women.” Too much of that is just automatic-pilot hyperbole, and much of the rest is discredited claims about the numbers. No, I don’t agree that trans people have it worse than everyone else, and so much worse that we all (except men of course) have to give up our rights.

“It’s not good enough to respond by saying ‘but women’s rights'”…says the man.

What do we have to do to make that good enough? Why isn’t it good enough? Why don’t our rights matter?

He doesn’t bother to say. Not his problem.
