Was just browsing the internet reading on the issue and I think i have come to dislike the phrase “designated female at birth”. It sounds like there was some authority sitting over my birth and that authority “decided” I was female.
On the one hand, it can be viewed as something that is done to myself as a person, seperate and unrelated to myself as a person. And the “designation/decision” will follow me the rest of my life and I will be treated according to that “designation/decision”. In a patriarchial white supremacist culture, being female is a bad draw. So I think this is somehow related to how one can detach from one’s sex at birth.
On the other hand, it can be viewed as simple identification/categorization. I am female because the pieces and parts were checked and were in spec for what we call “female”.
That is all for now.
