It's only for: Women, trans-women, trans-men, non-binary if female born
I'm wondering about the "non-binary if female born". Is that a thing to filter on? Any an idea what the rationale is there?
(I'm not objecting to it, but curious as I've never seen it before)
@webmind Cis male perspective here, because you can never have enough of those, but it sounds like they're trying to target people who have experienced gender-based oppression.
@freakazoid I think I know what you mean If you refer to people being oppressed because they've been identified female by others.
But non-binaries socialised as male can also get gender-based-oppression based on them being non-binary.
@rey @webmind It does seem like they're trying to slice a bit too thin by excluding enbies who were socialized as male. Birth gender doesn't matter, unless you are insufficiently trans? Or maybe they think one is insufficiently female in that case?
I'm going to shut up now because my experience and opinion are completely worthless here.

if they want my opinion: "women, trans, and/or non-binary folks" would cover the gender-marginalized groups and not have a truscummy/terfy odor
(also, as someone who was "socialized as male"... it was traumatic as fuck, nearly killed me a few times, got me raped and abused more than once, and i'm *still* trying to work through all the psychological damage it caused. so, let's not consider that a "benefit" :)
@freakazoid there are some folks who are actively in distress and probably not the ones to ask questions of... like, uh, me, the past couple of weeks
then there are those of us who can go on about the genders for hours and hours, if folks want to actively learn more and ask good questions and such (like me, today, apparently :)
i want being trans/non-binary/genderqueer to be *normal*, and part of that is being an ambassador. mutual understanding is Good :)
