Radical Feminists on the Transgender v. HBS Controversy

in Opinion

I found a pretty intriguing comment over at Womens Spaces/The Margins concerning a post written by Harry Benjamin Syndrome apologist, Cathy Platine, at Pam’s House Blend.

That whole thread over at PHB consists of males scratching out turf over the female body, each laying claim to ownership.

While I live in this society as a woman, the reality is that I’m male bodied and a surgically constructed vagina will not change that.

Thoughts?
