I agree, but this is also somewhat maddening. The article, on an addiction recovery site, outlines how trans* people might benefit from having closed meetings that are specifically designed for them. And I agree. If spaces like these are helpful, then they absolutely should have them. I would never dream of impinging on them. But by the same token, women-born-women spaces are just as needed by some, and they also deserve to have them. Also intriguing, in this article, it is a member of a men-only group that objected to the presence of a transman — a perspective I don’t hear much about.
