Thread of FACTS:
Regardless of what @MerriamWebster 'claims' with ZERO evidence, female is NOT "having a gender identity that is the opposite of male".

Female is not a 'gender identity' / 'womanish essence'.

Female is the SEX that can bear offspring, i.e. having a BODY organised to produce OVA.
Regardless of what @nature 'claims' with ZERO evidence, sex is NOT "neither binary nor fixed".

Biological sex in humans is BINARY (female or male), determined at conception, observed at birth, and FIXED (IMMUTABLE).
Female people remain FEMALE for life, no matter which stereotypes they 'identify' with, or how they 'feel', no matter what hormones they take, or what surgeries they get.

Women remain in FEMALE BODIES - bodies organised around a female reproductive system - for LIFE.
Male people remain MALE for life, no matter which stereotypes they 'identify' with, or how they 'feel', no matter what hormones they take, or what surgeries they get.

Men remain in MALE BODIES - bodies organised around a male reproductive system - for LIFE.
Regardless of what @Dictionarycom 'claims' with ZERO evidence, radical feminists are NOT "hostile to the inclusion of trans people and gender-diverse people in the feminist movement", and do NOT "sometimes advocate for harm against trans people”.

What an outrageous fucking LIE.
Radical feminists include ALL FEMALE PEOPLE, all trans-identified female people, all gender-diverse female people, in the movement to LIBERATE FEMALE PEOPLE from exploitation and oppression.

Radical feminists NEVER advocate for harm against ANYONE for how they identify.
Radical feminists recognise that within a patriarchal culture, male bodies are seen as the subjects and female bodies are seen as the objects.

Thus, the ROOT (radical) of a woman’s exploitation and oppression is based on woman’s FEMALE BODY.
Overt examples include
female infanticide
female genital mutilation
child marriages
surrogacy camps
period poverty
menstrual huts
forced pregnancy
trafficking
porn
prostitution
being killed for being raped
unpaid reproductive labour
government control and restriction on abortions
See Amy Sousa's "There's No Such Thing as a TERF":
The patriarchy profits by using and exploiting women’s bodies as tools and resources.

Women are not a FEELING or IDENTITY.
Women are not TOOLS or RESOURCES.

Women are FEMALE HUMANS.

Thus feminism does not seek equality WITHIN the patriarchy, but LIBERATION FROM the patriarchy.
'Lesbian' describes a female homosexual.

Lesbians are FEMALE people who exclusively date/sleep with/are sexually attracted to FEMALE people.

NO MALE person is a lesbian.

NO female person who dates/sleeps with/is sexually attracted to a MALE person is a lesbian.
'Gay man' describes a male homosexual.

Gay men are MALE people who exclusively date/sleep with/are sexually attracted to MALE people.

NO FEMALE person is a gay man.

NO male person who dates/sleeps with/is sexually attracted to a FEMALE person is a gay man.
Male people with a DSM-5 mental disorder are not female people. If you cannot see the rank misogyny in claiming that WOMEN are just “men with a mental disorder”, you are a severely severely severely severely fucked up misogynist. Looking at you Daniel Radcliffe & Eddie Redmayne🤢
How is it ‘kind’ to claim this, when it insults the very existence of four billion people? Women are human. We are not a collection of external stereotypes. We EXIST as fully embodied humans with internal lives. You cannot colonise our minds, and you will not colonise our bodies.
‘Gender’ is socially enforced norms/expectations based on biological sex. ‘Woman’ ≠ gender, because our existence is not a social construct. You cannot ‘identify/feel' into it; you cannot ‘identify/feel' out of it. Being a female human (woman) is an immutable biological reality.

Woman is a female human.

Woman is a human whose reproductive system is organised to produce ova.

It's not possible to *feel like* or *look like* a human whose reproductive system is organised to produce ova.

You either are or you aren't.

Being a woman is a biological reality.
Female humans(WOMEN) remain female for life, no matter how they identify, no matter what hormones they take, no matter what surgeries they get. Females humans(WOMEN) remain in female bodies-bodies organised around a female reproductive system-for life.

WOMAN IS NOT A DIRTY WORD.
Woman's oppression and exploitation is SEX-BASED i.e. based on our FEMALE BODIES, NOT a 'magic woman essence'.

We will NOT allow our neutral biological descriptor, WOMAN, to change from one based on biological sex - binary and immutable - to one based on a 'magic woman essence'.

@Lainyfindsvoice Hi, so I’m 20, and this is a long one. Strap in. This ideology believes it's not the body that makes a woman, but a mind. They have to completely overhaul and reevaluate their worldview from libfem to radfem to understand what exactly a woman is.
@Lainyfindsvoice First of all that they have such a lofty idea of 'woman' is egocentrism and a failure of education. Women have been oppressed FOR their bodies so the easy solution by libfems is to deny existence of that body. No female body, no oppression, right?
@Lainyfindsvoice And yet why are women still oppressed/ disadvantaged globally. How? Because femaleness is a biological reality. Femaleness resides in the sexed body. There are very real biological differences and biological realities that make a 'woman' different from a 'man'.
