Looking online at a lot of what identifies itself as ‘trans activism’ thru the prism of intimate partner abuse ( #coercivecontrol #suicidethreats #gaslighting #narcissism etc) things seem to me to fit a very familiar (& fundamentally womanhating) pattern.

Economic Abuse: making it hard for feminists and lesbians to speak out for fear of losing jobs.

This happens far too often. UK academia, charity sector, civil service... examples abound.

For truly crass examples see #yaniv #oger
Using Male Privilege: where to start?

*having 1000’s of other males vilifying women who stand up 4 their sex-based rights, online & in print

*85% of T-I-M retain male genitalia. Their word goes

*see banker, ‘Pips’ Bunce. Half the week he, half the week she. Wins woman’s award
Using Isolation:

Part of a typical #Gaslighting strategy: ‘noone else thinks like you, they think like me. It’s just you.’ Inducing silence & introspection and doubt through fear and therefore eroding or preventing supportive networks between women.
Using Emotional Abuse:

‘Bigot. Why do you hate me? You want me dead!’ ‘Why are you so phobic?’
Using Coercion & Threats:

Where to start? 😳
*death threats
*rape threats
*suicide threats
*complaints & accusations to employers...
*trying to close venues, services, events organized by women
Using Intimidation:

Assault, threat of assault, celebration of assault, economic leverage, workplace harassment... etc
Using Children:

See: @mermaids_gender @gender_intell @allsortsyouth

*Dysphoria untreated
*non-conformity monetized
*’Do you want all these kids (insert false stats here) 2 kill themselves? U monsters!’
*’Your parents don’t understand but we do.’

@Mermaids_Gender @allsortsyouth Minimizing, Denying & Blaming:

I’m sure ppl will be able provide abundant evidence of the rampant #DARVO
