@jess what the actual fuck

I know cis women with more facial hair than me

I know cis women who are taller than me

It's almost like these "flags" exist to discriminate against anyone who isn't a feminine sex icon

@beegrrl there's MASSES of misogyny involved in this. what do they care if it catches cis women too

news, transphobia, very bad, trump, sexual abuse 

@jess well, if they 'catch' a person they are now allowed and encouraged to sexually abuse them

"prove you're a woman, pull down your pants. these genitals look fake "

@beegrrl @jess The rule's text actually expressly forbids that, but I'm not confident it's going to stay that way, or that that specific bit of text is going to be enforced.

However, the actual criteria for evidence is... basically government ID, medical records, or some kind of "central assessment system". Yikes.

@frostotron @jess if you're disoriented and homeless you might not be thinking clearly. Enforcing these bullshit rules on vulnerable people creates an unsafe environment

I literally cannot change my gender markers under any circumstances because I live in a shithole. "Proof of gender" doesn't mean anything because gender isn't a tangible thing
