  • The misconception is that Marxist Feminists see Gender as a very narrow, binary concept, that doesn’t take into account any deviation from the old dichotomy of male and female. Marxist Feminists can accept that trans people exist and ought to be supported, just in the same way that Liberal Feminists can. It is true that the language used is quite binary, however I believe this comes from the fact that the great foundational thinkers of the Marxist Feminism, Alexandra Kollontai and Clara Zetkin are still widely read by Marxist Feminists today, even later thinkers like Shulamith Firestone, Ueno Chizuko, Silvia Federici and of course, possibly the most famous Marxist Feminist, Angela Davis, were writing, leading and theorising decades before the movement for transgender equality and liberation in the 2010s had begun to take place.
