I’ve always been a woman and I have experienced misogyny. Maybe not exactly as you have, but maybe like some other women have. Saying that I do not experience misogyny the way women have implies you know all about my experiences and that you can speak to every woman’s experience. You don’t get to speak for all women: your experiences are not everybody’s. Let’s not even discuss the transphobia implied in saying trans women aren’t women.

Oh, and by your definition above, wouldn’t trans women who transition young (<6 years old) know an awful lot about misogyny? I brought them up earlier, but you keep ignoring the fact they exist.
