My trans friend has to wear a long wig (male pattern baldness) and put on a full face of makeup every time she goes to the doctor because if she doesn’t sh might not get her gender-related care because she’s “Clearly not actually a woman.” This is normal.

Trans people “tend to reinforce gender stereotypes” because if they DON’T their gender is invalidated. Particularly trans women.

Blaming trans people for gender roles is victim-blaming.
