I really don't understand it but it makes me sad. Trans people just want to get on with their lives and are at more risk of being harmed or murdered than anyone else.

Examples?

If you see any transphobic comments, please do report them.

Oh God please no

PaintingByNumbers Mon 08-May-17 20:38:33

seriously? couldnt you just post on one of the other gazillion threads on the subject?

Pansiesandredrosesandmarigolds Mon 08-May-17 20:38:59

Dunno. It's depressing.

user1494271474 Mon 08-May-17 20:39:23

What's with all this talk of men trying to get into the ladies toilets or changing rooms just to catch a glimpse of fanny? I mean WTF. Do you honestly believe a man is going to stick on a dress and a wig and pretend to be transgender just to assault or rape a woman?

Imagine if it was you who was born in the wrong body. Now imagine how horrible that must be knowing your body is wrong and you try your best to deal with it and all you get in return is fear, suspicion and hatred.

Some of the posts on here are heartbreaking.

user1494271474 Mon 08-May-17 20:39:59

Okay I will try and report them as I see them. Not sure anything will be done though :/

I don't think mumsnet is transphobic and hq are pretty good at deleting comments which break talk guide lines.

This has been done to death. Do some searches and you will find some recent threads.

Stick your title into search. I swear we had exactly the same title last week.

HildaOg Mon 08-May-17 20:40:47

That should say anti woman ideology.

PaintingByNumbers Mon 08-May-17 20:40:51

you liar. you havent read any such posts on mumsnet or you'd have just put this post on those threads instead of starting the one billionth this month on the subject.

honeysucklejasmine Mon 08-May-17 20:40:53

MN always delete transphobic comments.

HoldBackTheRain Mon 08-May-17 20:40:55

I agree OP but have to say I don't comment on them anymore because it feels like a pointless battle.

user1494271474 Mon 08-May-17 20:41:13

I mean what's with all the fear?

There was a thread a while ago where the OP was terrified about a possible new gender identity law and others on the thread shared their fear. Why? Why is other people gaining rights so scary to you? It doesn't impact you.

glenthebattleostrich Mon 08-May-17 20:41:18

Ffs, why not add your comments to the current oh you are all so mean thread.

Where?

PeaFaceMcgee Mon 08-May-17 20:42:29

I also agree OP.

user1494271474 Mon 08-May-17 20:42:31

I have read lots of posts on here. I haVe lurked here for years and I used to enjoy reading everyones posts. Now everyone just seems full of anger and fear about what exactly?

Maudlinmaud Mon 08-May-17 20:42:44

It's not about that though it's about womens spaces being eroded or so I've read. I say that as someone pretty ignorant to the whole issue.

Pansiesandredrosesandmarigolds Mon 08-May-17 20:42:54

I mean, I suppose it's because a lot of the posters in the feminist boards have a fundamentally Marxist view whereby women are a 'potentially revolutionary class'. mobile.nytimes.com/1972/07/30/archives/the-womens-movement-women.html

Once you start then then it sort of follows that transwomen threaten the revolution by muddying up the class of 'women'.

TheWitTank Mon 08-May-17 20:42:58

There are SO many threads on this subject and every single one just goes round and round and round. Just search MN and read through. I don't think you can just class MN as an entirety as transphobic. At all.

FlossyMooToo Mon 08-May-17 20:43:15

Given therd are many threads on this and given you are user12345678 i strongly suspect you are being goady.hmm
If you see transphobic posts report them. If they really are against talk guidelines they will be deleted.
