You identify as one.

Stop reducing women to their biological processes. 

Stop ridiculing others for their birthing choices.

Stop acting like giving birth in a certain way makes you superior.

Stop passing judgment upon others for their medical choices.

Stop tearing other women down in hopes it makes you look better.

Agreed. 

Quoting Anonymous 74: Well... If you have a vagina and are human you're a real woman. I've never thought of how you give birth as a determination of such. I think a real woman wouldn't abort though. That's a shell of a woman.

I am a real woman because:

i nurture those in my care.

i sacrifice my wants and needs for the sake of others

i protect those who cannot defend themselves

i give comfort and affection willingly.

Even if I had a penis between my legs, I would still consider myself a "real woman" period.

I can't and won't get on board with this. 

You're female if you were born one. You are "transgender" if you identify one. You can pretend to be a woman all you want but it doesn't make you female. 

Most trans say "i'm a trans woman" or "trans man" and when you ready about them they are told as trans <sex> in the media.. they aren't called women. Even more fucked up is a transgender dating and not telling the person they are dating about it until after, worse after sex.

All except for the first. Unless you have a vagina at birth you are MAN.

I agree my last was a c section. My other 3 were vaginal. My c section was harder and more painful. I would have given anything to go through labor again.

Quoting Curlymom234: I've read them before on here. I had a C section and totally disagree. I also really wish I could've had a normal delivery.

Quoting Anonymous 6: Someone made a post stating that. She also referred to a C-section as an easy way out.

Quoting Curlymom234: Now that's just dumb.

Quoting Anonymous 6: I'm still trying to figure out why anyone thinks an epidural makes someone not a real woman.

Wow this post is old. I’m approaching my due date and have my fingers and toes crossed that I can have a normal delivery. My second c-section is scheduled. πŸ˜” I’ve never heard it was more painful.

Fuck, I hate those people.

My youngest was an emergency c-section at 34 wks because he was breech.  I would have much preferred to deliver vag but my hospital doesn't even attempt them with breech.  My recovery was much harder. and it literally left a weird lump at the place they cut.  Only idiots think it's the easy way out.

Hey Oprah

Quoting Anonymous 3: Well you're saying you can just say you identify as something because you say so. I'm now a black, rich woman. πŸ™„

Quoting Quakercaoimhe:

That's not how that works, and literally no one said that. Get new material, you're boring and obtuse. 

Quoting Anonymous 3: So can I identify as a black woman even though my skin is white?
