Sorry for having to reblog, but couldn’t see a reply option anywhere.
From what I’ve seen in the past few years, there are Radical Feminists, and there are Trans Exclusionary Radical Feminists. The easiest way to think of them is the one is the Roman Catholic church, and the other is the Church of England that broke away because they had a falling out over some things.
It is funny / hard to understand how the TERF’s think that transwomen uphold stereotypes of gender, while trying to force stereotypes of gender onto those same transwomen. They don’t view transwomen as women, no, they’re men, yet they don’t view transmen as men either, but they’re not “woman-enough” to attend a conference. To me that simply says they don’t want any trans person there, for whatever reason that may be.
Hey, it looks like radical feminism has got this sexism thing licked! All we have to do is effect a total social transformation in which gender as we know it will completely cease to exist, and then we can get on with our egalitarian business.
Now, I’m not against ambitious projects, but it may seem to some of you that this is an almost impracticably gargantuan aim, which is why I’m pleased to report that the Radfem 2012 conference has already got the fundamentals of gender smashing in place. Here’s how it goes:
- Establish a woman only space to discuss the dismantling of patriarchal culture
- Ensure the women in that space are restricted to “women born women living as women“
- Watch patriarchy tumble in the face of rigorously policed gender identity!
- Er, really?
