Call yourself a feminist? Our transgender columnist Juno Dawson's here to see if you really pass the test

And calls women who don't "TERFs". Thanks, Glamour and Jo Elvin, thanks a lot.

Yes I've seen this! And threatened anyone on Twitter who pointed out that terf is a slur and used in conjunction with violent threats against women. Apparently has screen grabbed any offending posts as they are 'libellous'
What a nice person hmm

One of the best things I ever did for my mental health was to stop buying women's magazines. I saved money and cheered up - what's not to like?

Oh god everything about that article has just given me the rage.

It's just mansplaining taken to the nth degree. A man who says he's a woman, telling women how to do feminism.

Libellous against who exactly?

venusinscorpio Fri 04-Nov-16 16:12:59

It's deliberately goady click bait.

FlapsTie Fri 04-Nov-16 16:17:18

The comments are quite heartening.

Jo Elvin can fuck right off with this nonsense.

Love how it's essentially an article full of mansplaining- 'come on girlies this is real Feminism, get with times'

ageingrunner Fri 04-Nov-16 16:22:25

Venus libellous against the author of the article because the tweets apparently suggest that they are inciting rape and violence against women obviously bullshit

Mozfan1 Fri 04-Nov-16 16:22:42

And YY to the comments, inspired

OurBlanche Fri 04-Nov-16 16:24:29

Oh... do I want to read it... do I need a blood pressure spike...?

This is astounding -

I try to only ever speak for myself but I'm pretty sure, overwhelmingly, all trans people EVER would agree with me when I say a) I JUST NEED A WEE, THAT IS MY ONLY MOTIVE FOR ENTERING A PUBLIC LOO and b) I really really wouldn't feel safe peeing in a men's bathroom

Then why do you think women should feel really really safe when men come to pee in their bathrooms, for fuck's sake?

blanche you may want to grab the smelling salts

Is this the Glamour magazine that just gave Bono a "Women of the Year" award? I'm thinking they have a somewhat tenuous grip on the definition of the word Women.

Mozfan1 Fri 04-Nov-16 16:27:53

seek so true, how is it fair?! I would t feel comfortable sharing a public toilet with a human that is genetically male.

venusinscorpio Fri 04-Nov-16 16:28:02

I don't think they have a great understanding of libel law.

OurBlanche Fri 04-Nov-16 16:28:04

Thanks, Moz DH is bringing tea...

Mozfan1 Fri 04-Nov-16 16:28:51

Hot and sweet following mumsnet rules I hope?!

msrisotto Fri 04-Nov-16 16:28:52

Go ahead and start reading. I had to stop because my eyes rolled up so far they got stuck.

Mozfan1 Fri 04-Nov-16 16:29:24

Wouldn't not would t

SeekEveryEveryKnownHidingPlace Fri 04-Nov-16 16:29:31

The comments are very good though!

venusinscorpio Fri 04-Nov-16 16:29:36

I've read an article by that twat before, as their fabulous new columnist. One is quite enough.

ageingrunner Fri 04-Nov-16 16:30:06

To be fair they don't seem to have a great understanding of anything much

Mozfan1 Fri 04-Nov-16 16:30:32

So is she basically saying: 'because I'm a trans woman, my feelings trump those of (genetically born) women'?
