Mumsnetters who are gender critical - please please do not comment here, this is not a discussion thread, I just want to see if there are other people here who share my views.

I believe feminism is nothing if not intersectional.

I feel really alone on mumsnet. Every time I come on and want to get advice about something or just waste five minutes there's always another trans thread. Maybe this website is not the place for me?

So you've started another trans thread? hmmconfused

ShirleyPhallus Sun 13-Jun-21 14:23:17

I support trans women

I also believe that sex cannot be changed and that the current trans movement is damaging to feminism

It’s possible to be both

Why are you suggesting that gender critical feminists do NOT support TW? All the feminists - and the TW - I know support TW but only some of them insist on ignoring biological reality.

THIS.

Am sure there's loads of other sites you can use if you don't like what you read here. And that goes for any topic. You're never going to be able to control who writes what so find a site that is more in line with your views would be my view

I'm with @ShirleyPhallus

I support trans women but you can't change sex and sex based protections must be kept in place.

I echo @ShirleyPhallus.

Agree with @Shirleyphallus

You're trying to police what and where people can post on a public forum?

Good luck with that.

I came on to say exactly what @ShirleyPhallus so eloquently said

Sargass0 Sun 13-Jun-21 14:26:36

P.S I agree with @ShirleyPhallus

If you don't want people who are gender critical to comment, you shouldn't have entitled your thread "mumsnetters who support trans women". Because you are suggesting that gender critical women are not supportive of trans women. (Shouldn't that involve trans men as well?)

Couldn’t put it better.

SmidgenofaPigeon Sun 13-Jun-21 14:27:37

Right so no one has said they’re NOT in support of transwomen. Why isn’t that good enough for you OP?

Lonel Sun 13-Jun-21 14:28:04

I would also add that if you just believe blindly that puberty blockers and other hormonal treatments should be given to minors then you emphatically do NOT support trans rights. I believe trans people should have access to safe and tested medical pathways, and not be offered treatment which may prove harmful in the future. Everyone deserves proper healthcare!

Outbutnotoutout Sun 13-Jun-21 14:28:04

I support trans women and trans men actually

But I don't agree they are women or men respectively.

The current TRA is damaging to women and girls

BahHumbygge Sun 13-Jun-21 14:28:45

Intersectional doesn't mean every thing has to intersect with penis.

Should the Cats Protection League be more "intersectional" and also rescue dogs? They must be real bigots for not expanding their remit to the canine species, no?

Feminism is for FEMALE people... there are other human rights movements for other sectors of humanity... can't women have their own political liberation movement?

romdowa Sun 13-Jun-21 14:29:07

I support trans people but trans rights and women's rights are two separate things and I can't stand by while trans rights are slowly eroding the rights of women.

Agree with @ShirleyPhallus

TheMotherlode Sun 13-Jun-21 14:30:09

I support TW.
What I’ve read on MN has really made me start to question some of the popular narrative around sex/gender though, I’m still not sure what I really think about it all but personally I have found MN useful as it’s one of the few places where people seem to feel confident to openly question it.

HelenHywater Sun 13-Jun-21 14:30:47

Me too @ShirleyPhallus

Why are you sad? I support trans women. Everyone so far on this thread supports trans women.
