(And by men I mean non-AGP men.)

I know men also murder them because they hate femininity, but why are most woke bros (and also regular bros) so hell bent on hating on "TERFs"? I had two male acquaintances talk passionately about TERFs; couldn't make out any reasonable argument, but I still wonder what they gain from this. My only hypothesis is so that they can reap the sexual benefits of homosexual sex while being perceived as straight, and because TIM prostitutes are way cheaper.

I've been thinking a lot about men's interest in policing the category "Man." There is a lot of talk about the category "Woman," but I think what's really going on with a lot of men is the desire to enforce the traditional boundaries of the category "Man." (I hope people understand the way I am using the words in quotes. Categories are related to material reality, but also humans/societies want to shore up the boundaries of certain things.) The reason I started thinking about this is because the places with the most machismo (rigid definitions of manliness) have big trans populations, especially homosexual transsexuals. Then I was thinking about how Iran will transition a man, but not let me him be homosexual. Also, Thai 'ladyboys.' etc.

So I started thinking that men are really committed to this idea that "Man" is a well-defined category, and everyone else (male and female) can be shoved in the other intellectual column, labeled "Woman." So, gay men traditionally get shoved in the "Woman" column; cross-dressers; sensitive guys, whatever. Men want to keep their category rigidly policed.

Therefore, to them it makes sense to say "transwomen are women" because they are happy to let a GNC male LEAVE their category (Man) and go over to the other group. And they're angry if anyone argues and insists that these unmanly men stay in their own lane.

Does that make sense?
