I have PMDD…it is a uniquely feminine burden

I have PMDD. An extreme mood disorder tied to my menstrual cycle. It is a uniquely feminine burden. Sex is very real to me and the trend conflating it with gender has diminished the representation of what womanhood really is. I do not accept gender as a concept to live our lives by. We are humans with bodies and a personality.

I can’t be vocal about these views at risk of losing my job.

I have been called a “bad ally” and a transphobe.
