No Woman is Transphobic
Words have meanings and meanings matter.
“Phobia” means an irrational fear.
Female fear of male violence is perfectly rational because it is justified both by crime statistics and the lived experience of millions of women the world over since the dawn of humanity.
Males are statistically significantly bigger, stronger and more violent than females.
When a male “transitions” he does NOT become smaller, weaker or less prone to violence.
Women are female, but “trans women” are male.
It is not irrational for women to be fearful when a trans-identifying male invades a female space without consent.
No woman can consent to males entering female single-sex spaces that other women use, for the same reason that nobody can violate another person’s sexual consent. Voyeurism is a crime. The male gaze has no place in a female space.
Males are unwelcome in female single-sex spaces because of their sex, not their gender identity, and humans cannot change their sex. “Sex change” was always a lie.
Woman have every right to ask trans-identifying males to #GetOut and #StayOut of female spaces.
Some trans activists claim “phobia” also refers to an “aversion” but one must consider the source of such “aversion.” As Margaret Attwood astutely observed: Men are afraid women will laugh at them. Women are afraid men will kill them.
Characterizing female instincts for self-preservation as “transphobia” or bigotry is dishonest and despicable.

“But what about trans men?”
Butch women have sometimes experienced side-eye in female spaces, but the fear of male violence is always what underpins that situation. The fear is still justified, even when it is misplaced. The Swedish study (linked) showed not only that males retain male patterns of criminality after transition, but also that females who take male hormones can become more violent and their criminality pattern shifts closer to that of males.
