The Road to TERFdom

Post by dusty » Mon Jul 09, 2018 12:13 pm

I know little about the deeper philosophical implications of the trans question, but i try to keep an eye on surface-level developments within the intra-LGBT culture war between the TERFs and the transwomen

it seems that the dreaded TERFs caused a ruckus yesterday at the London pride parade, resulting in, you guessed it, lots of people on Twitter arguing with each other

naturally some principled leftists called for more TERF-punching






the blueticks don't call for it themselves but sympathize with the sentiment



Notably, Graham Lineham, usually found on Twitter sneering at Brexit-voting plebs, committed a heinous transphobic thought crime by questioning the aggressive rhetoric of some on the anti-TERF side of the debate



as a result he's now the New Morrissey (note: this is a bad thing)


outright father ted-denialism is now du jour among communists


things got heated in the comment section between woman bigots and male feminists

It constantly surprises me that it so quickly devolves into basic insults. It's as though they have so little to actually say - that calling someone ' a bit fat lump of poop ' or the absolutely indispensable ' you're an idiot, or insane, or stoopid ' - has become a standardised and accepted form of political discourse. Mind you, even the politicians are doing it these days.

I feel naturally inclined to agree with the lesbians.

Its not hard to use the right words
When your talking to people
And you know the ones they prefer
Its not that complicated
To use respectful language
Its the least you can do if you don’t it shows the truth
About you and your loyalty
To the patriarchy
Your false feminism
Hides your misogyny

Terfs are trash
We won’t stand for trans exclusionary feminism
Theres nothing radical about traditional gender binaries

If you intentionally misgender anybody
Your a sexist piece of trash
That deserves a brick to the teeth
Equality is for everybody
You gotta lot of nerve coming round with that
Swerf talk terf talk
Gonna get that sidewalk curb stomp
