LGBTQ Nation really taking the piss with its pro-trans crap

LGBTQ Nation really is a male-supremacist rag. It seems that, according to them, most people's natural reaction to the masculine rage of this GameStop visitor was 'vicious' and 'conservative'. No regard whatsoever for the other shoppers intimidated in this trans-identifying male's farcical pretence to represent ethics and right. Conservatives viciously mock a trans woman who… Continue reading LGBTQ Nation really taking the piss with its pro-trans crap

A Female Green Beret is Nothing to Celebrate — ANTHRO FEMINISM

Excellent points here.  In the Global North, imperialist ideology has made major inroads in keeping workers and the oppressed opposed to one another via "incremental change includes the armed forces, no matter how bad they are" rationalisations.

By contrast, the dehumanised “terfs” themselves, that is gender-critical feminists, rarely if ever urge violence against opponents either literally or figuratively. The talk of violence is all on one side. In this as in other ways, gender ideology has introduced new, alien elements into progressive politics.

In Britain this year the talk of violence has turned into action: there have been a series of physical attacks on gender critical feminists from transgender activists (and no physical attacks on trans activists by feminists). The immediate context is the current debate over proposed changes to Britain’s Gender Recognition Act (GRA), which would make it easier for people born as males to be legally acknowledged as females and thus, critics fear, have readier access to female-only spaces.

Sabine Belinski writes: Trans Exclusionary is a misnomer on many levels but I wish to talk about it on one specific level- within society. What does it mean to be a fully participating member of society? I'll turn to Icelandic Human Rights which draws from the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) to answer this… Continue reading What does it mean to be a fully participating member of society?
