Is someone who creates and hosts a mastedon based fork for #feminists which is "women-centric" a Terf or just Terf-adjacent?

Looking into #spinster - a spin off from #mumsnet and #twitter - and who runs/hosts/maintains it...
The domain is on sale for $1200 or so - is it worth running a crowd-funder to raise this?

Who'd be in?
The domain it runs on... spinster.xyz

John McDonnell plays down his previous remarks on direct action against MPs - adding that he "totally" condemns what happened to JRM's children last week. #mumsnet
Shadow chancellor now defends employing Jeremy Corbyn's son: "He was appointed on merit and I regret the level of abuse he's received just because of his surname."
McDonnell repeats his line that (1) Labour wants a general election for people to express their view on Theresa May's Brexit deal and (2) if that doesn't happen, a people's vote remains "on the table".

Well, those so-called "feminists" are once more at it on @MumsnetTowers #mumsnet trying yet again to claim that nobody at Mumsnet was serious in calling for a return of s28 to schools, this time solely targeting trans kids: Mumsnet so-called
Which is a weird bit of selective blindness. It doesn't take much of a search to find the times that posters, including very prolific posters, to the so-called "Feminism Chat" board have called, in one form or another, for an end to the teaching of trans issues in schools

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
