Which of Us Is Glorifying Reproduction, Again?
- 2020-08-07 08:51 @wendycockcroft “Anyone else noticed that trans women are celebrated for their achievements and trans men for having babies?”
I think what's going on here is:
- Wendy is claiming there's a dichotomy in how trans men and trans women are treated, in which trans women are taken seriously as individuals while trans men are still seen primarily as baby-factories.
- I think she is trying to argue that this dichotomy illustrates that trans women continue to have male privilege after transitioning
- I don't think the evidence supports this.
My personal answer to the question? Not really, no. I do remember a few examples of each, but that could easily be media bias and anyway, so what?
I assume she's not trying to say "trans men aren't men because they can have babies", because that would be a circular argument.
