Funnily enough no man insisted to be treated as a woman when women could not vote, or own property.
No transwomen then.
And no-one wondered if you had to do genital checks to find out who was a man.
Well there was the chevalier but he was treated as a VERY SPECIAL WOMAN by men. Men, back in the day, didn’t believe members of their sex could become members of ours any more than they really do now.
It's funny that things never change: they still are treated as VERY SPECIAL women. Not just regular women.
