Can we all please stop sensationalizing transgender people…specifically, trans women? Phrases like, “used to be a man” are so overly simplistic and reinforce the notion that trans women are lying or being disingenuous. How about, “The Highest-Paid Female CEO in America is a Trans Woman….HOORAY!”
Your desire to sell magazines does not trump the safety and advocacy that trans women so desparately deserve. While this is a wonderful circumstance, it is hardly representative of the lives of most trans women in this country. When we attempt to celebrate a white, upper class, trans woman with unhealthy phrases like this, we will only find ourselves doing damage to the ones down here with the rest of the us. Or the ones we keep below us.
I’m bothered they would call the person a female. Trans woman, fine. But female? NO. Female is biological, and that person is biologically male.
And how about the fact that they “used” to be a man might be the reason why they are now the highest paid “female” CEO
"Previously, researchers had misidentified skeletons as male simply because they were buried with their swords and shields. By studying osteological signs of gender within the bones themselves, researchers discovered that approximately half of the remains were actually female warriors, given a proper burial with their weapons."
