Eli Erlick, an individual who identifies as “Extremely queer & incredibly trans,” has posted a series of absurd statements on social media claiming that transgender women are actually women.
“Trans women are natural women. Trans women are normal woman. Trans women are biological women. Trans women are born women. Trans women are women,” Erlick tweeted. “The only inherent difference between trans women and cis women is that trans women were assigned male by a doctor. Trans is an adjective that describes that assignment,” Erlick added in another tweet.
Despite Erlick’s emphatic declarations to the contrary, transgender women are actually just biological men masquerading as women.
“I’ve been openly trans since age 8. I was constantly told transition was impossible but still expressed myself. There was no other way forward. Nearly 2 decades later, I’m proud of who I am. I wouldn’t be here w/o transitioning as a kid. Trans youth deserve our unwavering support,” Erlick has tweeted. “Trans education matters. I didn’t know transition was possible when I first came out as trans in 3rd grade. I didn’t know that there were other people out there like me. I didn’t even know queer people existed! I just knew that I was a girl and I wanted to be respected as one,” Erlick wrote in another recent tweet.
Erlick has previously admitted to involvement in a scheme to distribute prescription hormones to people.
“There are over 20 states trying to criminalize hormone therapy, particularly for trans youth. So, my friends and I had an idea: sending out our extra prescriptions around the country. If you need hormones, I’m working with a distribution network to get you access. Everything is free, no questions asked. We have hundreds of doses of testosterone, estradiol, and spironolactone available right now. All are prescribed by doctors and unused. Each package comes with information on dosage, obtaining bloodwork, etc,” Erlick wrote in an Instagram post that has apparently been deleted.
“I realize this is only a band-aid solution: we need full access to affirmative medical care from professionals immediately. However, missing a single dose of hormones can be devastating (especially for trans teens and those new to hormones)! These laws are outrageous and I can’t wait for them to be overturned. In the meantime, DM me if you need HRT or if you have overprescribed hormones you’d like to send out,” Erlick’s post read.
