There's a misogyny at the heart of mainstream Trans politics seen in the undertone of hateful & violent threat or allusion. It starts with dehumanising women as scum, Terfs, nazis. That then allows violent fantasy to be normalised. It's a visceral hatred of women & it SICKENS me
Anyone on the left @OwenJones84 still deluding themselves that the selfID movement is serving trans people or is progressive needs to ask themselves why the hell women wouldn't be concerned about sharing vulnerable space with males prepared to dehumanise them, even wish them dead
The Tory govt has put forward proposals on self-ID & then spectacularly failed to facilitate a responsible national political conversation. Like cowards they have ducked & dived & hidden from a discussion of their very own proposals. Instead they have left a dangerous vacuum

Complex PTSD is when you want to go out for a walk but can't go anywhere alone. And your friend offers to come with you and you cry with gratitude.
Complex PTSD is when your headphones break and so you can't leave the house until you get new ones, because they signal you don't want to be approached and you don't want to hear any one talking to you in the street.
Complex PTSD is waking up in the night and every shadow is a man standing over you and he's going to rape you. You are frozen, dripping with sweat and can only sob till the shadows disappear.

@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?

This thread is about the #SelfID debate and why #labourlosingwomen is going to be such a massive problem for #Corbyn and his ever increasingly lunatic supporters. We have three biological genders, male, female and hermaphrodite but the % of hermaphrodites is tiny. 1/11
Now Eddie Izzard is part of the NEC of #UKLabour this issue is going to re-ignite rather than disappear as he recounted in his memoir of how he deliberately broke the law getting changed in a female bathroom: 2/11

But why is there so much controversy about all of this and why is it justified? #UKLabour has alienated traditional #Labour female voters about having to compete with men who have decided to describe their gender as female #SelfID #labourlosingwomen 3/11
