The idea that "trans women are women" is usually backed by a belief in an essential, inborn, and immutable "gender identity" that every person supposedly possesses.<ref name=genderspectrum/>  Transwomen are said to be real women on the grounds that they possess a "female gender identity" which they are said to share with women.  Likewise for transmen and a "male gender identity" that is supposedly shared by all men.

Just like transgender activists refuse to provide an objective definition of womanhood, they tend to refuse defining gender identity on any objective terms.  Usually, when explaining how a person has discovered their gender identity, one hears references to sexist stereotypes ascribed to womanhood and manhood.  When confronted directly however, transgender activists refuse the notion that gender identity is based entirely on those stereotypes.  Since no objective measure exists at all, they are effectively forced to accept the claims of anyone and everyone regarding what their gender identity is.  Thus we see transwomen with full beards and intact male anatomy, who are said to be literally real women like any other.
