do cis people they can just use whatever they're grouping people for to describe that group?? like for instance, if you're trying to describe the various people who experience misogyny you can just say "people who experience misogyny". it's entirely inclusive, and it's more accurate/pertinent to your point
also slight aside but a lot of the time when it's necessary to talk about """biological women"""" that term is not actually accurate. "ppl who menstruate" does not include all women. "ppl who can give birth to children" does not include all women. w/e function/body part it is that you Need to talk about, there will be cis women who don't have it. "biological women" is an exclusionary/unhelpful term to discuss body parts even without considering the existence of trans people
@myconidiosyncrasy hi i'm a biological woman, no i don't have a uterus just letting you know i'm not made of metal 🙃
@myconidiosyncrasy also good time for a reminder that the category "biological sex" was socially constructed/enforced and proceeds from and came after gender, not the other way around
@myconidiosyncrasy heck, even XX chromosomes probably isn't broad enough. I know for "apparent" males, 1 in 1,000 have XXY chromosomes. I'm definitely not clever enough to come up with an accurate way to describe gender beyond what people choose for themselves.
@myconidiosyncrasy I feel like sometimes people go out of their way to not use the term lesbians to refer to that group and it's highly sus
@myconidiosyncrasy I know you weren't talking about lesbians, it's just a related issue that I've noticed
@myconidiosyncrasy I wish there were more terms, because things like "responsibility for birth control commonly falls on uterus-havers" sounds 👎
(I still use it when necessary because it's all we've got I guess)
