But that’s not what trans widows really want. Instead, they would rather maintain their legal hegemony over their trans partners’ lives by maintaining the spousal consent provision. By maintaining the status quo, they can continue to garner the media attention — and crowdfunding dollars — enjoyed by every other British anti-trans entity.
Look this just isn't fair. Just like the trans community isn't a monolith, neither are their spouses. There's an inherent assumption here that cis spouses are the ones advocating for the spousal consent provision. Is there any evidence of that?
