The Michigan Women’s Music Festival Decided They’d Rather Close Down Than Stop EXcluding Trans Women

Riding the MBTA is public space:
For some, there may be a need
for women-only trains
free from men’s tiresome gazes
There may be a need
for black-only trains
free from harassment by white cops
But –
If your public space
requires you to police who belongs
on the train
You are part of the problem.
If your public space
cannot be made safe
while other people
live their lives
like you want to live yours
Perhaps you
do not belong in public.
