TERFs be TERFin': A thread involving Beaver Bother & Harry Potter.

(1/1)

Kanzenkankaku:
Trans Exclusionary Radical Feminists, otherwise known as "Gender Critical" feminists are anti-transgender activists who frequently align with anti-LGBT evangelical religious groups but with the twist they are claiming to protect women, particularly lesbians from trans women.

Harry Potter author Joanne "JK" Rowling recently uh oh oopsie'd and declared support for a TERF campaign called "IStandWithMaya"
https://www.pinknews.co.uk/2019/12/19/jk-rowing-maya-forstater-tweets-transphobia-accusations/

This is a reference to Maya Forstater, a british woman who tried to sue the think tank she used to work for decided against renewing her contract over transphobic tweets. She decided that they were discriminating against her politically and "indirectly" on the basis of her sex because allegedly women are more likely to share her views than men are. Needless to say, her case was thrown out by the employment tribunal based on how weak it was.

Formerly successful comedy writer on Father Ted & The IT Crowd, Graham "Glinner" Linehan is perhaps the most prominent man among the online TERF movement (and trust me, this shit is all EXTREMELY fucking online) He is an asshole of such a high degree that he's essentially alienated everyone who isn't one of his terf sycophants. He is responsible for leading a campaign that caused youtuber Hbomberguy to respond with a charity stream supporting the charity him and his base (affectionately nicknamed the glincels) targetted

Of course the game Harris played was Donkey Kong 64, one of the bosses of which is named Beaver Bother, hence the inclusion of that particular meme in the title.

Some common talking points are shit like
-If trans women are women then why are they trans women? (not understanding basic set theory)
-Condescending to trans guys like they're just confused/self-hating lesbians
-The trans predator trope, which has really gone into overdrive ever since the Jessica Yaniv drama started
-Saying trans people are inherently a patriarchal, right-wing conservative movement
-Comparing trans activists to nazis
-Using "TIM" (trans identified male) and "TIF" (trans identified female) and other jargon to avoid having to say any of the actual widely accepted terms for trans and nonbinary people .

Skybison:
HOW DARE YOU!  TERF is horrible anti-female slur, just like how calling Richard Spencer a nazi is a horrible slur against white people!  Or how calling Pat Robertson a homophobe is an attack on Christians!  How can you attack people by accurately describing their views?

ironbite:
....god damn it Skybison you make me laugh.

If "gender critical" feminists are feminists then why are they gender critical feminists?

Anyway I looked up some stuff on TERFS and found this gem on WHTM that I'd missed when first posted, where I learned that, as a straight cis man, I am sexually turned on by Vaginal Mucus, which I did not know about myself.
