Yes, they are women

The Monthly. March 2013.

This month's The Monthly (what a name for a magazine) has a sex-segregated cover. I think this is a bad thing. I object to the practice of sorting human beings into two groups according to gender, for no utterly compelling reason. I can't see how it furthers the cause of women's rights. I can think of more useful ways of sorting people; by the quality of character, by intelligence, by resilience, by needs, by abilities, by intentions, but not by genitalia or sex chromosomes. I've written about the pervasive practice of segregating people by gender, as can be found in Australia. You can find it here:
