Embracing all gender identities would be a monumental step in feminism, from the binary FTM and MTF to genderqueer, agender, gender fluid, transfeminine and transmasculine, it's important to embrace our diversity.Feminists shouldn’t be side-tracked into “what is a woman?” theology when most women still confront the same basic old barriers: how do you bring up children and have a career? Why are you paid less? Why do you own less? Why are you more powerless? Why are women prone to assault, mockery and contempt? How do you live with a man? How do you bring up sons? How do you be human first?
When we’ve dealt with all that and gender no longer defines us so brutishly, there may be time to debate the finer points; meanwhile, let’s welcome anyone into the sisterhood, which is already furiously diverse.
