That's the thing about the law. It lumps everyone in whether or not you want it to, so when the laws and rules made are for everyone, then everyone suffers on both sides whether or not you want it to happen.
Sure not all of the trans community pushes for this, but the ones who do and got all this craziness set in motion caused the damage for everyone.

I'm timing my move off of the planet when they bring out a female condom line.
ETA... I looked it up and I'm ready to go now.
Anybody that thinks this is a good idea should probably stop smoking sanitary towels.
Are sanitary pads toxic?
Most diapers and sanitary pads contain volatile organic compounds and phthalates and with this continued, long-term exposure a significant amount of these harmful chemicals could be absorbed via the genitals, according to a new study. ... The pads were removed from the market.Jan 28, 2019
Humans are born with 46 chromosomes in 23 pairs. The X and Y chromosomes determine a person’s sex. Most women are 46XX and most men are 46XY. Research suggests, however, that in a few births per thousand some individuals will be born with a single sex chromosome (45X or 45Y) (sex monosomies) and some with three or more sex chromosomes (47XXX, 47XYY or 47XXY, etc.) (sex polysomies). In addition, some males are born 46XX due to the translocation of a tiny section of the sex determining region of the Y chromosome. Similarly some females are also born 46XY due to mutations in the Y chromosome. Clearly, there are not only females who are XX and males who are XY, but rather, there is a range of chromosome complements, hormone balances, and phenotypic variations that determine sex.
Aneuploidy is the condition of having less than (monosomy) or more than (polysomy) the normal diploid number of chromosomes. Aneuploidy occurs in at least 5% of all pregnancies and is the most commonly recognized chromosome abnormality in humans. Divergence from the normal number of X and Y chromosomes, called sex chromosome aneuploidy (SCA), accounts for approximately half of all chromosomal anomalies in humans with a total frequency of 1:400.

it makes a mockery of real women who have to suffer their menstrual cycle and here we have men who think or believe they are women using sanitary towels for no #ing reason also its wasteful… these men pretend they have periods so they can feel more like a woman , but its really just mocking women who suffer their menstruation… and get worse as you age , are they going to pretend to go through the menopause as well ?
It dishonors femininity… I think that women’s issues should not be direct by men who believe they are female... seems even males who want to be females still like to dominate things
but THIS pissed me off! As a female who has terrible periods due to endometriosis I only used Always products because they were the best! Now it’s like they’re slapping all WOMEN REAL BIOLOGICAL WOMEN in the face! They’re also slapping Venus in the face! It’s insulting all of this and it takes a lot to insult or offend me
In conclusion: In this paper I advanced the physiology-based view that there are probably as many different gender variants as there are sexually reproducing individuals, and this not only in humans. Hence, there is no need to make subcategories in the gender variants with the purpose to install a moral hierarchy as they are all physiologically equal. This does not mean that all gender variants contribute equally well to the well-being of the whole population. I hope that growing awareness that the Ca2+- homeostasis system which is a key signalling system in all eukaryotes, acts as one of the corner stones on which gender is based, may contribute to a better acceptance of the variability of in gender forms as a natural, largely genetic (inborn) system.
