One to link to anyone sharing "terf is a slur", there are no #terfs getting bullied for being terfs, no terfs at risk of violence as they go about their daily lives due to them being terfs. But trans kids are, due to terfs ideology, and they blame trans kids and "male violence"!
The "Correct Morally" one (What a screen name!) is particularly bad, as the trans girl was beaten up in her own changing room. Where she was segregated most likely due to fear mongering from the terf led media.
And for any TERFs claiming they are being bullied online, mainly by being called "TERFs". Well I'm so sorry that the beliefs and hate you express freely online, and that you can drop any time you like, are leading to people disliking you. Try thinking what it is like for people-

Great win for intersex rights in Europe, two orgs are cited, ILGA Europe and OII Europe. Given TERF intersex "advocates" often claim to speak for intersex ppl and demand trans ppl and allies are silent. I wonder what they have to say about trans rights....
ILGA Europe are a multipurpose LGBTQI rights org, so understandably are pro-trans...
OII and ILGA host groups of intersex advocates from organizations all over Europe, and they've made three combined statements of what they want. The Malta statement in 2013, Riga statement in 2014, and Vienna in 2017. What do these say?

It's generally not good to play off groups of feminists against each other, but terfs are not feminists. While they put stickers in loos and run away to Mumsnet to gloat about how they made trans women feel unsafe... We have actual RADICAL feminism here -
The contrast is honestly jarring and so depressing that the biggest "feminist" (Posie holocaust deniers are ok Parker makes it clear they are not) movement in the UK at the moment is a bunch of bored Mums playing at activism which is aimed at making trans women feel unwelcome.
Jean Hatchet is one of them, she knows about rape culture, it is endemic in the UK. But are they angry about Ched Evans getting off? No, he doesn't see women on the street with "Ched Evans is a Rapist" t-shirts, or stickers in his local pub. They've slunk off and left him to it.

Against my better judgement, I've been reading some TERF material (*rubs temples*) and I wanted to translate and then respond to one relatively recent argument which I consider illuminating on the nature of their claims.

A thread:
Some so-called "radical feminists" or "gender critical feminists" have a flatly a-scientific model of human sex determination which informs the basis of their philosophy. Their positions are accordingly blinkered and incomplete, collapsing upon the slightest inspection.
A very small handful of these so called ""radical feminists"" have finally started to concede that what we call "sex" is at least the sum of five different mechanisms described by biology, not all of which coordinate according to The Rules 100% of the time.

Hundreds of millions of men of our own species--even men we have loved, fed, comforted, and cared for our entire adult lives--would rather have sex with a robot or a scared teenage human trafficking victim than a loving, intelligent, willing woman of an appropriate age. #misogyny
Of course they support #Trump, of course they think the #MeToo movement is too hard on #louisck, of course they despise women like #HillaryClinton or Christine Blasey #Ford. Young or old, left or right, they've been brainwashed by the patriarchy from birth to despise women.
What are women to them, really? We're the non-men, the negative to their image, the shadow to their light. When we're young, we're a destination for their sperm and a source of orgasms. When we're older we're their home cook, nurse, maid or mommy--or we're nothing at all.

@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?
