Thanks for the clarification, but my response is the same to this comparison. Transgender girls are the subjects of sexism, not just observers of it.

To use your racism comparison, it would be more like being raised with racism around you while appearing white but actually being mixed race.

This is why I don't think 'appearing white' should even be an issue here. The only thing that matters is that she lied about experiences she didn't have by inventing her racial background.
