To the small group of cis women

Another “expert” lecturing us from a great height:

It never was. There was never a mythic world where “womanhood” was not “afforded to” people (or “bodies” but how can a “body” be “wealthy”?) who were white or rich or the rest of it to the exclusion of others. That’s just blather.

Mind you, it is true that bullies use that as one way to bully women, saying “you’re too ugly/fat/skinny/butch/black” to be female, but that doesn’t mean it was what all people really thought about women.

And of course it has nothing to do with saying that men are not women. It’s not “oppressive” to say that men are not women and vice versa, it’s just what the words mean.
