Kaeley Triller writes at The Federalist about the strange relationship between feminism and the “trans agenda.”

In my mind, the largely feminist concept of systemic misogyny was basically a joke. I considered myself a liberated woman. I held a job. I made a fair wage. I spoke my mind. None of the females in my circles were oppressed by patriarchy or sold in marriage for the price of a few cows. Feminists were misguided, at best. Society did not systematically bulldoze women’s rights.

But I was wrong. I didn’t realize this, of course, until I got bulldozed myself. The culprit? The trans agenda, ushered in with bully tactics and power plays from big business and Hollywood celebrities who either spent too much time in the L.A. sun or consumed a toxic mixture of Kool-Aid that made them actually believe prioritizing the emotional demands of grown men over the physical safety of women and children is somehow progress.

I didn’t believe in rape culture until a 6’3”, 250-pound grown man stared angrily into my eyes and proclaimed to me how hurtful it was that I did not want to see his penis. And people agreed with him. (Because men forcing themselves on women is something new and different?)

I didn’t believe in victim shaming until I received death threats for sharing my experience of sexual trauma in hopes of protecting women in their most vulnerable places. “Stay at home if you’re uncomfortable,” they jeered. “You’re so ugly that no one would want to rape you anyway.”

I didn’t believe in systemic misogyny until I was told that my hard-earned boundaries were actually just bigotry and that my red flags were irrelevant. I guess “My body, my choice” doesn’t include my right to determine who gets to see it? “An erection in the shower next to you is no cause for alarm,” they explained. “It’s a normal bodily function. Use this as an opportunity to ‘educate’ yourself.”

“Educate myself.” As though reading a book or attending a seminar would somehow miraculously make it less dangerous for grown men to have unrestricted access to naked children or any less harmful for women to be told their needs don’t matter. Where was their education about the effects of sexual trauma or the manipulation of predators? It seemed to me that if they had experienced the same sobering education I did, then maybe this conversation would not be happening.
