Got called a feminazi today

grin my American Aunty posts loads of pro-Trump on Facebook and normally I just hide it and unfollow her, but this time she tagged me in something about late term abortion and how Hilary Clinton supports it when the mother doesn't want a baby anymore and can have one at 32 weeks and then Planned Parenthood sells the body parts (!!!).

Rather than get into it or create a family drama, I simply commented her name on a Bitch Media link and well, she commented and so did others (all polite and no nastiness).

I went to message her as I realised she might not appreciate all those comments and noticed her new status about family bashing her and how I love Hilary and I'm a feminist nazi and then my cousin piped up, feminazi! And then they discussed God and guns and now they've all got pictures of them with guns as profile and cover pictures grin

Happy to be identified as a woman's champion and tempted to delete all other from Facebook so I don't get tempted to reply check your facts if you don't like the response. Families on FB are never a good idea...

Sorry your family are idiots. Some of mine are too.

Forget invading Poland. Americans think invading other countries is okay.

Be a humourless feminist and explain to her, in detail, the holocaust, and ask her if she really thinks you wanting to be treated as human being is the same as mass genocide on a country's own citizens.

Trump wants women to be raped routinely. That is what he tells us, that is what he behaves like. This will lead to way more abortions, legal or not, than anything Clinton would ever do.

Oh, and actually, you know who else treated women as breeding cattle? Hitler did! I think it was called "Lebensborn"

Sorry. I am German, and we got a really thorough education on this shit in school.

Sorry, meant mass murder OR genocide. Genocide is, after all, always mass murder.

I hate this shit about late term abortion. One moment we're delicate little flowers who can't worry our heads about complicated jobs/maths/logic, and the next we're cold hearted murders who would wait until 30+ weeks to kill on a whim a being we'd been growing in our bodies for the last 5 months.

It's just yet more othering of women, refusing to believe we're real humans capable of having our own thoughts and actions.

ChocChocPorridge Sat 22-Oct-16 13:47:01

Which is of course to emphasise, that this is because I know that any woman having to abort her baby at 30+ weeks is doing it either because they didn't have access to abortion early enough (abortion that late is a horrible thing to go through), or is doing it because they are going to die if they don't or their baby is going to die.

It's a terrible decision to have to make, one no woman should have to, but some are forced into, due to circumstances beyond their control. And I don't want women blamed for that as if it was a free choice, because it vanishingly rarely is.

If the word feminazi was around the time of the suffragettes they would have been called that too.

Thanks for all your messages! My mum and I had a giggle about it today - she knows what my Aunty is like.
Her and my cousins post stuff about guns and boasting about the automatic rifles they have and they are big God fans - the most important thing is God and guns apparently.
Mad to think we're from the same family and quite sad to see she supports such a crap human being, but it takes all sorts, hey!

Poor you! Sounds awful. When I read the thread title I thought, well that would be them off my Christmas card list but if it's family I guess you're stuck with them. Find a card featuring Santa with an Uzi perhaps? grin

I was called a feminazi on Twitter a couple of weeks ago regarding the whole Ched Evans fiasco. I find that when ever people use that particular insult it's because they have been backed into a corner by your views and can't think of a reasonable counter argument. It's pathetic.

FannyCabbage Sat 22-Oct-16 22:15:24

Prawn grin tempting. Or maybe a card with Hilary Clinton snogging Jesus?

FannyCabbage Sat 22-Oct-16 22:18:55

Power, that can be the inside of the card! Silly bloody woman. Makes me cross that there's so much ignorance!

Ched Bloody Evans and that awful hatred on Twitter. Made me feel physically sick!! I had leave Twitter for a few days as some of the comments made me feel so sick - couldn't believe the vile comments supporting him and calling women slags and sluts and bitches and whores and yeah, why do people use feminist as an insult? Bloody people.
