12. Did you read the entire article?

If so, I think you misunderstood it. In no way is it blaming cis-gender women for transphobia, it is blaming transphobes who use the guise of "concern for women (and children)" as a weapon to attack transpeople, especially transwomen.

As for your touched nerve, I added that comment so people didn't assume it was me writing it, and I was adding a comment the author used when she self-identified as cis-gender. I was pointing out a cis-gender woman was standing up for transwomen, and admonishing those who claim to stand up for women but do it at the expense of another group of women, and even all women. Her comments point out how these so-called "protectors" of women are concerned for women when it suits their bigoted agenda (transphobia), but when it comes to all women (health issues and the like), then women are the enemy again.
