I am reading his book at the moment- and it's really perceptive and funny. But god it's also really Sad. It made me cry on the bus last night.

What does 'terfed' mean?

FleetwoodMacNCheese Sat 23-Sep-17 16:44:13

I don't understand the thread title.

fakenamefornow Sat 23-Sep-17 16:45:57

What did he say?

Oh he just goes up and up in my estimation.

Liking "terfed" as a verbal though it loses meaning if said aloud (DP stared blankly thinking I meant turfed like a lawn grin)

I ❤️ Robert Webb

TERF is trans exclusionary radical feminist. It is what transactivists call feminists/anyone who doesn't agree with them.

Northend77 Sat 23-Sep-17 16:54:13

I am very confused!

AnneLovesGilbert Sat 23-Sep-17 16:55:05

Can someone send a link? I heard him on woman's house and thought he was very sensible.

TheWitchAndTrevor Sat 23-Sep-17 16:55:11

I read an extract from his book in a paper, it was good, but I forgot to buy it, blush will go look on Amazon........

Just read some of his tweets grin

Hulder Sat 23-Sep-17 16:55:32

I saw it. He is fab.

Wondered if he was prepared for the onslaught and then thought, good on you.

CoconutLush Sat 23-Sep-17 16:55:40

I whole heartedly agree with what he's saying.

shivermytimbers Sat 23-Sep-17 16:56:29

Can we have a link please? grin

EachandEveryone Sat 23-Sep-17 16:56:53

I don't think I have the intellect for this thread!

CaptainHammer Sat 23-Sep-17 16:57:52

I haven’t seen his tweets but I am watching Peep Show right now!

AfunaMbatata Sat 23-Sep-17 17:01:10

Good on him!

Hulder Sat 23-Sep-17 17:01:33

Basically Robert Webb has spent the afternoon on twitter agreeing that transitioning children might not be a good idea because the problem isn't that the child is born in the 'wrong body' - the problem is that gender stereotypes are a load of bullshit.

brasty Sat 23-Sep-17 17:04:20

I really hope he doesn't back down after the inevitable onslaught

BahHumbygge Sat 23-Sep-17 17:05:08

Sounds messy but awesome ❤️

CartFloud Sat 23-Sep-17 17:05:12

Sounds good- nice he is exposing the nonsense of gender stereotyping. Just bought the book!

TheCountessofFitzdotterel Sat 23-Sep-17 17:05:32

You only have to be thoughtful and questioning about gender to get called a terf. Oh, and be a woman.
So it's lovely to see him out there saying stuff that women get rape threats for saying. Look how polite the people arguing with him are being! wink

He is great.
