you cannot make a gender essentialist statement and also include all trans people. if you think you can, then you should have a long hard look and think about which trans people you believe are worth including and which aren't.
This goes double for anything about being socialised male or socialised female. Someone who transitions at 5 and someone who transitions at 15 and someone who transitions at 40 will all have different experiences. None of those will be the experience of cis people of their AGAB.
