Imagine it’s 1997 and you are a young, edgy, fun-loving feminist. The world you live in has produced Girl Power, ladette culture and Take Back the Night marches. You and your girlfriends have said ‘Hell No!’ to creepy men and you own your sexual empowerment. Then, a terrible accident befalls you and you fall into a coma. You awake from the coma in 2023 to find that those who call themselves feminists today are defending the rights of predators to enter women’s spaces and are celebrating girls who cut off their breasts and take testosterone. ‘But wait’, you cry, confused from your hospital bed. ‘Aren’t we supposed to be protecting women, and teaching girls that they are fine just the way they are?’ And then you are kicked out of the hospital and denied further medical care for being a transphobe.
