Why can’t feminists and trans activists get along?

Exploring the metaphysics of gender

There is a curious and stubborn split on the “political left”: between the feminist activists and the transgender activists. A lot of dirt is flung from both sides. Transgender people are accused of “reinforcing the gender stereotypes” and “distracting from the problems of sexual equality”. Similarly, feminists are often labelled TERFs (“ trans exclusionary radical feminists”) [1] and bigots for their refusal to accept trans-women as women.
