The word "female" still has meaning.

A man is not female.

A cis woman is female.

A trans woman is female.

You are female.

I am female.

Biological structure does not determine gender.

You want the narrower definition, the exclusionary one that leaves some women out.

I prefer the wider definition, the one that allows ALL women to be counted.

Chromosomally, mammals are a lot more complex than your narrow definition. Bioneurologically, humans are a lot more complex than your narrow definition.

And the key thing is intent.

The thing that drives you is some kind of entitlement, some kind of fallopian-tube righteousness that propels you to police who gets to use the women's bathroom or whatever.

Most women have ovaries. Some don't.

I appreciate that you're very attached to this role of gender police you've created for yourself, but I have to tell you the sad truth - no one cares much about your prejudiced views. Except maybe the other TERFs you hang out with.
