I had no idea how far gender identity had evolved until I responded to a post on Twitter and was called a cis-woman. I had never heard this cis term before and it angered me that my status as a woman could just be wiped out so silently without fanfare. Now I realise that if I do not own and stand up for my rights as a adult human female my daughter will lose hers.
I have started to follow this and highlight it to as many people as possible. At times I have been overwhelmed by the hatred shown when I have spoken up for my rights as a woman. I’ve been made to feel that I am wrong for refusing to share my rights and spaces with trans women.
