Thought for the day

This is a point I made about equal marriage:
The concept of woman is not narrow and fragile, it is robust and will take all comers. Its borders do not need policing. It does not threaten me, lessen me, or lessen anyone's womanhood, to acknowledge other women and to hear their lived experience. Let's stop this "real women" rubbish before it lives to poison yet another generation of writers and journalists - because that way of thinking is very much last century.
Stop trying to deny people being who they are and enjoying (or not) the same things you enjoy. Letting someone else be who they are does not fucking damage your right to be who you are.
