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
which has encouraged authoritarian bullies to use anti-democratic methods to threaten the basic democratic rights of women. The Labour Party, instead of asking how women's & trans lives can be improved in ways that don't infringe on each other's rights, has been equally abject
#TheresaMay your attempt to window-dress your nasty-party image by putting a tick in a trendy equalities box has failed. Feminists & socialists have rumbled your superficial stunt for the sexist, money saving gimmick it is. A cheap, divisive & ultimately conservative regression
back to sex stereotypes. If you really cared about trans ppl you'd fund proper mental health services, you'd ensure clinicians are free to do their jobs, you'd stop the grotesquely long wait times for treatment, you'd end the homelessness & vulnerability many young trans ppl face
You should shelve #selfID & soon or prepare to face a radicalising & growing women's movement that will nail your party's sexism. Women simply refuse to lose on this. SelfID will not be tolerated, or any other misogyny. As for #Labour when will you speak up for sanity?
