Did everyone watch this video? Women from the Vancouver Women’s Library documented the harassment from anti-feminists when they opened their library. I snorted with laughter when a fully-intact male not even trying to pretend to be female insisted he was a woman. WTF, dude? I have compassion for people with gender dysphoria, but I have zero compassion for asshole MRAs who use “I’m a woman!” as a bullshit trolling tactic when harassing feminists. Also: make sure to read the Feminist Current article about this event, it’s excellent.
Another day, another man who thinks that making cosmetic changes to his body makes him a woman, and who thinks that “woman” is whatever a man says it is.
I got into this goddamn argument with a transwoman. I shouldn’t have—it’s a waste of time and I know it, but he commented here a couple of times so I was following his blog for a while. I’ve learned my lesson!
The link he provided here basically amounts to “I’m a woman because I say I am, and I don’t care what you think about it.”
It’s interesting that he calls his girlfriend “a biological female.” If a transwoman actually understands what a biological female is, then he knows he’s not one. A transwoman is biologically male, and it’s not “phobic” to state that, it’s just a neutral fact.
A man is an adult human male, and it’s not “phobic” to state that either, it’s a neutral fact.
Lesbians are females attracted to females. We can have any “gender” we want, but homosexuality means attraction to the same sex, not the same gender.
No man is ever a lesbian, no matter what. Not if he takes artificial hormones, not if he has surgery on his penis to turn it inside-out, not if he wears makeup or a dress, and not if he gets his documentation falsified by putting an “F” on it under “sex.” He’ll never be female and he’ll never be a lesbian.
When men say their heterosexual attraction toward women constitutes lesbianism, they are appropriating our identity. When men suggest that their female partners are lesbians, they are erasing what lesbianism is. When men suggest that lesbians can/should/would date men, they are being homophobic.
When transwomen insist upon dismissing what actual lesbians have to say while calling themselves lesbians, they are displaying their lack of respect for women and for lesbians. They are demonstrating that they do not deserve our support.
Somebody on Etsy is selling these buttons.
Trans activism is supposedly about gaining rights and recognition for trans people. The fight for trans rights is supposed to be similar to the fight for gay rights. But gays and lesbians never had a slogan about sending straight people to die in a fire. We didn’t go around calling straight people scum. We didn’t make pins saying “straight people stomper.” We just wanted our civil rights–the right to an education and employment without discrimination, the right to live free from bullying and harassment, the right to marry. We did not seek to take rights away from other people. The only slur against straight people that gay people ever came up with was “breeder,” and there is no history of straight people being afraid to speak or gather in groups for fear of being called a “breeder.” This was never hate speech, it was only ever mildly rude.
But women are silenced by the word Terf. Fear of being labelled by this word keeps women from speaking their minds. We are afraid of real violence, because trans activists threaten us when we speak and when we gather. Some of us are afraid of losing our jobs if we speak out publicly against gender identity laws that effectively allow anyone at all into women’s washrooms and locker rooms.
A movement that creates buttons that call feminists scum and tell us to die is not a liberation movement, it is anti-feminism. Liberation movements don’t need to take rights away from anybody else, they just fight for rights for oppressed groups.
The word transgender is a large umbrella term covering quite a few very different types of people. People who genuinely suffer from dysphoria are not being helped by “Die Cis Scum” buttons. The only people who are benefiting from this anti-feminist backlash are misogynists–the types who want to silence feminists and give men the right to do whatever they want, wherever they want, including in spaces that are supposed to be reserved for women.
Ha! A transwoman with a YouTube channel (and who has a really porny idea of what a woman is, BTW), has made a video calling out Danielle Muscato’s bullshit. Interestingly enough, he makes the same points I made about Danielle Muscato! Theryn Meyer—TERF? LOL
Transwomen know what a woman is—an adult human female—and they try their damndest to look like one. Meyer knows that Muscato is not a transwoman, he’s just a dude who’s trolling the trans community. Meyer says that when someone has a female gender identity, he takes steps to look like a woman. If you don’t take any steps to look like a woman, that indicates you don’t have a female gender identity. A man who looks like a man and actually has gender dysphoria won’t want to keep looking like a man! Trans people know this.
Danielle Muscato is just a walking, talking peak trans. He is proof that people will take anyone’s professed identity seriously no matter how far removed from reality it is. Even Meyer doesn’t want to call him by female pronouns. He even says almost the exact same thing I said to Daniel recently regarding people refusing to name what they see with their own eyes:
“It scares me that people are willing to betray with their words the obvious reality that they see in front of their eyes for the sake of political correctness.”
But wait! If we don’t have to call Muscato a woman, then why do we have to call other non-passing transwomen women? Like I asked before:
If you don’t think that Muscato is a woman,
(a) Why not? If he identifies as one can’t he be one?
(b) What’s the difference between a “TERF” not recognizing a trans person’s identity and you not recognizing Muscato’s identity?
This transwoman Meyer isn’t recognizing Muscato’s gender identity which means he is TWANZPHOBIC. Just as transphobic as the TERFs, obviously!
All you have to do is sit back and enjoy the show, because trans ideology eats itself.
Sometimes trolls can be entertaining. There is someone who writes for Portland Independent Media Center who has a habit of writing really hilarious hyperbole about what he thinks radical feminists are like. He sounds no different from any other MRA when he tells outright lies about feminists, misrepresents our position, and pretends as though we are advocating for exterminating people. I’m not going to link, just in case the pingback brings a whole bunch of trolls over here, but if you Google this quote you’ll find the page.
Make America TERF Again
TERF’s are already gloating and rejoicing over Donald Trump’s cabinet picks.

The term “TERF” (Trans* Exterminationist Radicalicalized Females) was invented only because real radical feminists had enough when a small group of self-radicalized vagina-worshipers began calling themselves feminists and promoting terrorism and genocide against Trans* women.
TERF’s may try to fool people into thinking they are feminists, but they are agents of the alt-right. That’s why TERF’s must be named and called out every day. No, we won’t quit.
Oh, man. Trans Exterminationist Radicalized Females. Well, radicalized females is right! When females witness the removal of our rights by MRAs in dresses, you bet we become radicalized. But Exterminationist? No feminists are calling for extermination of trans people. No feminist has ever killed a trans person. We’re not about killing people, we’re about protecting women’s rights. The people who actually kill trans people are MEN. Trans activists do not want to acknowledge the epidemic of male violence, even though it’s harming their community. They are completely against looking at the reality of male socialization and toxic masculinity that causes men to want to kill transwomen. They cannot put together the fact that radical feminists are against the very same toxic masculinity that is hurting them. They will not acknowledge the fact that a lot of the trans women who are killed are in the sex trade and that it’s johns killing them. They won’t acknowledge that johns are violent and that they are violent toward anyone in the sex trade, whether male or female. No male violence may be acknowledged in any way by trans activists. Instead, they yell at women, who aren’t killing them, for being “exterminationist.” Why? Because we understand human reproductive anatomy, and our understanding of the reality of human beings is allegedly “killing” them. Note that tons of men also understand human reproductive anatomy, but male authors of biology textbooks that call the penis a male organ aren’t getting slandered as TERFs, no-platformed, and sent death threats. That behaviour is only directed at women. That’s how we know that trans activism is a male supremacist and misogynist political group.
Terrorism and genocide? Name one example of any woman committing genocide, for fuck sake. However, if you want to see an act of terrorism, take a look at transwoman Dana Rivers, who has long hated the fact that lesbians want spaces for women only, and who actually murdered two lesbians and their son. That is an actual act of terrorism—a violent male making it clear that he hates lesbians and then actually killing lesbians. But trans activists will not call this an act of terrorism, and instead they go around the internet yelling at women who report that Dana Rivers was male. They are more concerned about the “gender identity” of male terrorists than about the violence they inflict on actual women.
It’s kind of amusing that this troll says TERFs are gloating over Trump’s cabinet picks, when the very first sentence in the link he provides says “I am a Democrat and I abhor just about everything that’s happening right now with Donald Trump and his cabinet appointments.” Yeah, that sure sounds like we’re “gloating,” right?
This stuff about radical feminists being right-wing is insane. Radical feminists are pro-feminist, pro-lesbian, pro-abortion, and are generally socialist and anti-capitalist. We are generally atheists. Sometimes radfems have a woman-centered spirituality but this certainly doesn’t look like the authoritarian, male-centered religions of the right. Calling us right-wing demonstrates that the speaker doesn’t know anything about us at all and has no interest in the truth.
I really, really love the above quote from a silly troll, because of the words “self-radicalized vagina-worshippers.” HELL YEAH. What could be better than worshipping vaginas? (Well, maybe worshipping the clitoris would be better, but, you know, the intent is the same.) Hell yeah I worship vaginas, both literally and figuratively.
And on behalf of self-radicalized vagina worshippers everywhere, I promise to keep on calling out male violence every day. No, we won’t quit.
Trans activists tend to say that trans people are essentially or intrinsically trans, and that they have to transition, it’s the only way. They also tend to say that if a male-born trans person has a sexual fetish or a criminal conviction, that shouldn’t stop him from transitioning. His fetish or criminal history shouldn’t stop him from being placed in a female prison, or from entering a female washroom or locker room.
This means the trans community even supports a guy like Stefonknee, the 53-year-old man who likes to imagine himself as being a six-year-old girl while getting fucked in the ass by his “Daddy.” You’d think that they could see that this guy is a disgusting pedophile, but no, he has the full support of his local trans community, including politicians.
Now there’s a new disgusting pedophile in town, Jorven Seren of England, a 55-year-old man who thinks he is a 5-year-old girl. He was arrested recently for kissing an actual little girl, which he did in full view of her mother, and there were 460 images of child abuse on his phone. The Judge was forced to refer to this man as a woman while in court. When he took away Seren’s doll, Seren began to suck his thumb.
(By the way, this man only got 15 months in jail, after sexually assaulting a child and having 460 images of child abuse on his phone. This sentence may have been so low because declaring yourself trans is a get-out-of-jail-free card, or it may be because the justice system has a remarkably high tolerance for child sexual abuse, and doesn’t take any serious steps to combat it. Or maybe both.)
Trans activists—where will you draw the line? Will you continue to support the “gender identity” of men in their fifties, even when they have pedophilic fantasies of being girl children? Even when they like to get fucked in the ass by their BDSM “Daddy” while dressed as a little girl? Even when they sexually assault actual girl children? Even when they suck their thumb while in court? Even when they have 460 images of child sexual abuse on their phones? When will the support end? At some point, don’t you want to enact some sort of criteria to distinguish people who transition due to dysphoria and people who are deranged pedophiles? Don’t you want to make sure you aren’t creating laws that allow deranged pedophiles into women’s prisons, washrooms, and locker rooms? Do you care about little girls who might have to change out of their swimsuit in front of men in their fifties who believe they are little girls and who actually sexually assault little girls in broad daylight in front of their mothers?
It’s long overdue for trans activists to take a good look at what kind of men are joining their movement, and to make an effort to ensure their political organizing isn’t enabling abusers.
A friend of mine went to an event recently and found the washrooms like this:
The women’s washroom has been turned into a gender neutral washroom, and a sign on the door indicates women, men and in-between. The men’s washroom remains unchanged. Note: these are not single stall washrooms, they are group washrooms.
It’s starting to become a noticeable pattern that when one washroom is made into a gender neutral one, it’s the women’s that gets converted. This means that men can go anywhere but women cannot have any space just for ourselves. If you enter an establishment and find the women’s washroom taken away, please complain to the manager and stop using the business until they provide a washroom for women. Any male allies out there? You can do the same thing. Complain to management that there should be a women’s washroom and do not give them your business until they give it back.
Women, please document this whenever it happens. Take a photo and put it on social media. We need to keep records of our spaces being taken away.
Transgender activism works to remove women’s right to safety and privacy and does not allow us to set boundaries. We need to oppose it with full force.
