I do not know why you came back to respond to my piece yet again. No, transgender women are not men. They are transgender women. Just as transgender men are not women. We are transgender men.

Transgender women are also abused, raped, and murdered at increasing rates. Many can’t go stealth as easily as transgender men can. It sickens me that you would use my article as a platform for hate.

Transgender writer and author. I primarily write on LGBTQ issues, with a focus on the transgender community. http://glbalend.com/
