This says a lot right there.
Women are oppressed because we are systematically exploited, abused, and denied the right to own our own bodies. Trans women are oppressed because laws, people, and media don't always validate their self image.
When men kill trans women, they kill them for being gender-non-conforming men, the same reason they kill gay men, or otherwise "effeminate" men. Men don't kill trans people by misgendering them, they kill them the same way they kill anyone else, with horrible blind force.
It's been said many times in this comments section but I'll say it again: We're on the same side in wanting to end male violence. Stop fighting us and work with us to stop the people who are actually committing violence against trans people and women.
