Well...what to say. For a dystopia it had all the tropes you would be looking for. The worldbuilding was nice but nothing special. The TERF and trans aspect was really weird for me. I get what the author wanted to do, but it all got washed away in stereotypes. Transpeople think about penis/vagina the whole time, betray their friends for the promise of said vafine/penis, are all in all horny the whole fucking time and sooo selfcontious. White cis women on the other hand are brutal men in disguise, become nazis at the first chance they get. E veryone wants to fuck everyone, and some hate each other for it. All in all I found it quite meh and very stereotypical. The message for me was (Trans-)women either worry about their weight (while there is a fucking dystopia going on), want to be held after fucking, because that is what we ladys like, or we  become Heinrich Himmler. Very much meh.
