Anonymous asked: Historically, it's worked out very, very well for white, cis women to stand by while their men target "lesser" women, if you'd forgotten. "Trans friendly" white cis women mis-direct about this often, particularly when they want to distort the mechanisms of trans women's oppression, but we see you too.
I do think that long-term it doesn’t work out for any woman to stand by while other women are being dehumanised: we may get a sense of security from it but it’s false, material benefits but they are contingent. but it’s just as true that white, cis women do this all the time, even if it’s not smart, and I sacrificed an acknowledgement of this for a snappy phrase. I’m sorry.
