    I think your premise is wrong. Feminists didn't make it up... it was due to the works of Sigmund Freud. He said, "The two concepts of 'sex' and 'gender identity' should be separated ONLY for analysis of human behavior in those rare abnormal instances."

    But, feminism, in order to remain relevant, after obtaining equality of the sexes decades ago, had to move the goal posts yet again. They adopted the idea of 'gender identity' and now they are fighting for equality of the genders.

    Probably because they don't want to step on the toes of the trans advocates who are really responsible for that. Lest you've missed every HuffPo and Buzzfeed article on the topic, there's no great love between feminists and the trans community. Trans women complain bitterly that they're not included in feminist activities and causes.
