Not only are they excluding trans women, but they are now also targeting trans men like myself. I’ve had several articles of mine where I write about my transition experiences go somewhat viral because they’ve been picked up by “gender critical” groups on Twitter or Reddit, and are using them to show how “mentally unstable” trans people are. I’ve even been called a “traitor” to my biological sex for transitioning to male (and I’m not really male at all in their eyes).

All I can say to them is “thanks for the views!” At the very least it’s propelling my popularity on Medium!
