don’t let one person’s opinion get you down. i know it’s not the same thing. but what if he absolutely hated french fries and you loved them. all he talks about how awful french fries are. would that really matter? if it bothers you, call him out on his crap and use it as a teaching moment, or stop being friends.
having gone through IVF, i call people out when i hear insensitive things.

Ugh. People are dumb and that is dumb.
I’m sure they’re not the only one who thinks that way, but the opinion of someone who sees the world in such black and white, especially when it comes to things that literally don’t matter in any way, isn’t worth putting any stock in.
There are people out there who believe you’re not really a “woman” until you have kids lol so I guess I’ll never be a real woman either ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

People can be so stupid, and I’m sad your feelings were hurt.
This reminded me of something a friend told me a few years ago. She (age 50) said that a group of her young co-workers were questioning her about her love life on day at lunch…my friend is a lesbian. My friend told me that the young co-wokers were shocked that lesbians get their period. WTF??

They thought they were being clever or funny. Some people say cruel things thinking it’ll illicit a laugh or make them look cool. Most people grow out of that bullshit in high school but some people really are pathetic and don’t ever develop beyond that point.
Get better friends, and don’t think for a moment people agree with what that jackass said.

That person is terrible. Firstly, they’re stupid and that argument makes no sense – Do they think that women who have had to have hysterectomies or have gone through menopause aren’t women, or that men that have had vasectomies aren’t men? And secondly, if they were aiming it at trans people they are both stupid AND a bigotted a**hole.

they would have been referring to people with a penis who identify as a woman.

That is fucked up. People are not things.

Realistically, with leadership that wants to define trans people out of existence, I am not sure things are going to get any better for a while. Bigots realize they have cover for their abhorrent views and thus feel empowered to verbalize them.
