One in particular is for queer women, mostly lesbian and bisexual women.

The group has never been self-consciously feminist nor has it been overtly politically engaged in LGBT advocacy.

I have noticed more and more content posted is trans gender related.

Perhaps it’s easier to talk about someone else or feel engaged in someone else’s problems when your own are quite heavy. Maybe exposing lesbians to trans issues would make them more empathetic to the issues of being marginalized, maligned and criminalised, maybe it would inspire them to look at themselves, beyond themselves, to recognize their own issues there and to help them unpack their own prejudices, preconceptions and, dare I say, privileges?

Where I think this is an inspiring and completely necessary thing, it has been problematic for me, admittedly, because I felt as lesbians, we were still not being seen or heard by society or even participating and acknowledging ourselves.

Calling out culture, which often comes with public shaming is toxic and anti-intellectual.

Feminism is not a one size fits all thing because women are diverse, and to not consider difference actually oppresses more people than liberates them.

I googled and read multiple listicles on how to recognize privilege, my own potential privilege, and looked for the answer to the question: do I have a right to claim this space – cis gender lesbian – without being accused of being un-inclusive? Being accused of being transphobic wasn’t just political, it was personal.

I run a few community pages and groups on Facebook.
