This is a thread detailing the transphobic vitriol & harassment of random trans people by the "gender crit mum" Kate Scottow (aka Dr.Fanny Cradock) who was supposedly arrested for only calling a trans woman, a man, which we know isn't the whole truth #Transphobia #UK
This is her right here straight up posting a random trans person's facebook profile and posts on her Twitter profile (with thousands of followers) mocking them with a friend. This is also her straight up randomly posting another trans person's facebook profile 1/8
This is her raging about Keychange recognizing and supporting trans and non-binary musicians & performers, claiming that they're doing feminism "wrong" by recognizing and supporting trans and non-binary folk. 2/8

Seems to be a bit of a movement among transphobes at the moment claiming that the only hate and abuse comes from the trans community. Let's put that right. #trans #transgender #transphobia #TransRightsAreHumanRights #lwiththet

Can we for real make #collectyourcousins a thing? Black folks are constantly collecting their cousins bc 1 black person acting a fool can have far reaching consequences for all of us. White folks don’t seem to feel as implicated by the failures or foolishness of other white folks
I propose #collectyourcousins as a call to allies to come respond to racist (sexist, cissexist, ableist, homophobic) comments by similarly identified people. White women collecting white women. Straight men collecting straight men. Cis folks collecting cis folks.
The appeal of #collectyourcousins in two-fold for me. 1: Privileged folks often respond defensively especially to marginalized folks calling them on such privilege or ignorance. They have a harder time being dismissive of folks with shared identities.

Positive news regarding the #harassment I have received in recent weeks from #transgender hostile "feminists". Tonight I have been informed by Hertfordshire Police that they arrested a 38 year old woman from the Hitchin area on suspicion of harassment and malicious communications
Following an interview whilst in custody the suspect has now been released under investigation whilst further evidence is gathered from seized electronic devices #transgender #harassment
In due course a report will be submitted to the Crown Prosecution Service with a view to charging the suspect with harassment and malicious communications. #transgender #harassment

So, I've waded through the Evangelical Alliance's new pastoral "guidelines" for interacting with trans people (ughh, the things I do to expose #transphobic #ciswits to the world), and let's just say it's time to tear this particular sh*t-bag a new hole.

So, straight off the bat, first page of text, the use of #language is . . . well, yeah, see for yourself:

"It is important to remember that transgender is not simply an issue to be debated;" - p5, #Transformed

*sigh*

When such language gets reinforced by insisting...

my is my promised THREAD for my new essay: Putting the “Transgender Activists Versus Feminists” Debate to Rest (btw, it's on Medium, so please give it lots of "claps" so that others see it!) medium.com/@juliaserano/p… #transgender #women #feminism #LGBTQ #gender #activism
...I saw some wild claims about my piece yesterday, so I will attempt to clarify here. my first point: there is a long history of feminist debates and discourses regarding trans ppl. Talia Bettcher discusses this in her critique of that Stock piece: dailynous.com/2018/05/30/tab…
...as someone who has played a small part in that history, and who spends much of my time in feminist settings, I can tell you that the "feminist debate" regarding trans people is largely settled, as most contemporary feminist recognize that...

I’m actually disturbed by the severity & intensity of the #transphobia that I’ve witnessed today. Spread across the mainstream media, in hugely expensive pieces of advertising real estate, using venemous transphobic language. I wanted to share a few thoughts & reflections...
... I’ve been privileged over the last several months to meet a whole range of #transgender, #nonbinary and gender diverse individuals, each one of them unique, and many of them have chosen to share their individual stories with me ...
... each story is different, and each person has demonstrated an immense amount of bravery in being able to face the world and live out their genuine and honest existence, as the person they truly are ...

PLEASE RT: I want to say something about recent matters involving West Yorkshire Police, Norfolk Constabulary and me #transgender #harassment

On 2 October 2018 I attended the HQ of Norfolk Constabulary to give a statement in connection with allegations of harassment (1)
I spent 5 hours providing a statement and evidence in connection with the well publicised allegations made by me to the Police concerning #transphobia. Norfolk Constabulary then liaised with West Yorkshire Police to decide how best to deal with this matter (2) #transgender
Following discussions between West Yorkshire Police and me I expressed my view that my preference was for the Police to take proportionate and swift action to make clear that #transgender #harassment was unacceptable. I made clear my preference was for a harassment warning (3)

@SurvivorsnetBtn @RASASC_London @survivorstrust @Danvers07943910 @ObjectUK @BrightonSurvivorsNET “In the light of a highly disturbing increase of #transphobia locally & nationally…” IF everything anybody says or does is #transphobia, of course you can say it is rising. Any reputable statistics?
@SurvivorsnetBtn @RASASC_London @survivorstrust @Danvers07943910 @ObjectUK “…so the date @Womans_Place_UK event feels like a concerted effort to make #trans ppl, & particularly #transwomen, feel #intimidated and #invalidated” Is it the position of SN that the sensitivities of #transwomen mean that #democracy should be suspended any time they say so?

The #IWasCalledTERF #IwascalledaTERF crowd are at it with their pity-party again.

Maybe they should try some honesty:

'#IwascalledaTERF because I want to eradicate trans ppl from society'
'#IWasCalledTERF because I don't want trans ppl to openly be themselves'
'#IWasCalledaTERF because I want to deny trans ppl access to medical treatment'

'#IWasCalledTERF because I've called for trans kids to undergo Conversion Therapy'

'#IWasCalledaTERF because I've engaged in targeted harassment of trans individuals'
'#IWasCalledaTERF because I've harassed people who stand up for trans people'

'#IWasCalledTERF because I've taken it upon myself to be the sole judge and arbiter of people's appearences'

'#IWasCalledaTERF because I've said trans girls are rapists who want access to other girls'

So, I mentioned yesterday that it felt like the so-called "feminists" on everybody's least favourite board were, in the terms of the analogy, working themselves up to another tantrum spiral.

Turns out I was right. And with things like this I hate being right, but, well, at least it's even more exposure about what really goes on at the so-called "Feminism Chat" board on @MumsnetTowers #mumsnet

CW: #Transphobia

2/n Yet another #transphobic post from the so-called
So, first of all, what am I talking about when I say 'tantrum spiral'.

@MumsnetTowers so-called "feminists" have a distinct posting pattern of late.

i) Things start to slump on the board, and they lose a few more posters.
ii) To try and make the board look more...

Part 3:

We've been here before.

Every move, played out a thousand times.

And every time the same result is achieved.

Ignorance and bigotry is not a sustainable position, and inevitably falls.

And all the old tricks will avail you naught

And so, inevitably, we turn once more to our usual friends

Hello

I received your reply (below)

I find myself curious about something though

Why did it take you so long to reply?

Why did you wait until 21:46 on a Sat night to reply?

Did the timing of your reply have anything to do with Andrew Gilligan's article which went live two and quarter hours later?

Why was the reply buried in the third tweet of that thread, not on the first where you would expect to find it?

CW: Transphobia, Transphobic slurs contained in the thread below.

So, the same old suspects from the same old source: Mumsnet "Feminism Chat" 1/?
Those of us who are already in the know, know the kind of things that the "feminists" in Mumsnet "Feminism Chat" like to get up to when the discussion inevitably turns to the transgender community, but not a huge number of people are aware of just how much said "feminists" 2/?
CW: Transphobic slurs

love to throw around the words t***ny and t***nnie, despite the fact that the word is, ya'know, a slur, and a pretty nasty one. Say, for instance, posts like these

Fell into a 90s/00s #suicide anthem music loop this afternoon and it reminded me of how depressed I have been in the past and how depressed I am now, again, and how much we still don't discuss #depression in this society.

I wrote this a couple years ago.
It's a good piece on writers & suicide, with an emphasis on #LGBT suicides because we kill ourselves more (thanks #homophobia/#transphobia)than str8 people.

Society still romanticizes #depression instead of treating it.

Let me tell you a story (thread). When I came out to my mom at 17, I wasn’t too sure I was gay. Neither was she. Popular media and public representation mirrored only one specific caricature, and both of us (in our own minds) thought I couldn’t be gay
Coupled with the fact that while growing up I 1) barely ever saw any representation of queer individuals in media and 2) if I did, they were all the butt of all jokes, the tireless “omg that’s a man in a dress” tropes, led me to believe that I couldn’t be queer. No sir not me
Hence, I went back in the closet, thinking since there is only one way to be gay I DEFINITELY cannot be gay. It was only about a year after that that I learnt and realized how ridiculous that notion was
