‘I defend everyone’s right to have the pronoun that they choose and will honour it. I do not choose Cis for mine. It took women like me long enough to own the title “woman” in the first place. It’s a long enough word for me
‘Ok. people. You win. I get that I’m reprehensible for not liking a word. I understand this now means I don’t get to sit with you all at lunch and yes, I am a wanker because I can’t do grammar. Thank you for showing me a better way. I delete.’.
Ok Peeps. I’ve had a reckless time brutally dismantling the ecosystem, and egregiously offending a whole community illiterately.I’ve used up this months twitter tokens.I’m sorry I won’t be here to reply to either kindnesses,bile or reason. Go well,my beauties.X

Transgender activism is misogyny in drag. She's exactly right and deserves no such criticism.
This desire not to be cis is rational and makes perfect sense, especially if you are female. I too believe my thoughts, feelings, aptitudes and dispositions are far too interesting, well-rounded and complex to simply be a ‘cis woman’. I, too, would like to transcend socially constructed stereotypes about my female body and the assumptions others make about me as a result of it. I, too, would like to be seen as more than just a mother/domestic servant/object of sexual gratification. I, too, would like to be viewed as a human being, a person with a rich and deep inner life of my own, with the potential to be more than what our society currently views as possible for women.
What is it with these gender-activists. If you want people to acknowledge and use your preferred label then you have to respect what other people identify as and also recognise and accept if they choose not to use labels.
It works both ways.
