My head is going to explode. TRAs are demanding that certain feminists literature is to be banned on the basis that they are written by TERFs and SWERFs. Are you fucking JOKING? What the fuck is going on in Canada at the moment?

Fucking bastards. Male privilege writ large.

These people are such fucking idiots and reading the comments is making my blood pressure spike.

This is in my neck of the woods. And let me be clear, the libraries all have books by Dworkin et al in them. So why attack a self-funded, small, feminist library? If it isn't about attacking women?

I think you answered your own question there!

Sorry, that came across as arsey, it wasn't meant to smile

Most of the comments are pointing out the hilarity of these 'demands'. I've clicked like on most of them. Canada is fucked.

I cannot believe that no one can see what this massive bunch of cunts and stupid deluded "allies" are doing to freedom of speech and civil rights.

venusinscorpio Sun 05-Feb-17 16:09:33

Not just trans allies, but the idiots who promote the agenda of pimps and traffickers.

MrsTerryPratchett Sun 05-Feb-17 16:14:36

Sorry, that came across as arsey, it wasn't meant to It didn't at all.

But if it helps I can rant on for pages about how you were literally violent and how you are causing me to suffer agonies because you silenced and excluded me.

According to SM, these idiots were smoking in the library, after having been invited in in the spirit of friendship, spilled wine on the books and the police were called. Apart from anything else, it's not very bloody Canadian.

I didn't mean to make mumsnet an unsafe space for you Mrs TP, but I think I may have accidentally done so. Would 50 lashes of self-flagellation be enough to expiate this crime of violence? Let me know, and thanks so much for your understanding!

Who the fuck do they think they are!

Well venus I don't know.

On a plus note, it sounds like the Vancouver Women's Library has received so much support that they have had to add a donate button to their website. Which is very cheering because believe me, in Canada right now, there is no dissent.

Why has Canada in particular gone so far down the rabbit hole? I've always thought of it as quite a chilled out place! Is it a reaction to the polarised situation in the US?

That's great that the library has received lots of support.

They are beyond pathetic. But I did snigger at the banned Buddhism books. Bigoted buddhists is a stand I've missed (and I don't believe any of them are bright enough to discuss classism with Buddhism or even know the history of the faith).

MrsTerryPratchett Sun 05-Feb-17 17:00:03

Why has Canada in particular gone so far down the rabbit hole?

It's odd culturally. Basically Canada thinks of itself as very right-on. And liberal. So it has jumped on the bandwagon hard. But it is also quite sexist and divided along gender lines (lots of home baking and hockey fights) so if you are gender non-conforming it's very hard. So being trans is an obvious 'fix'.

Lots of virtue signalling and being the most liberal stuff. Canada wants to be ahead of the curve and non-American.

They must be using an interesting definition of "violence".

KateAdiesEarrings Sun 05-Feb-17 17:01:33

I doubt they've read all the books on the list. It would be nonsensical if it wasn't so bloody dangerous. Now you don't need to burn books, just try to petition them out of existing and/or cut their funding.

venusinscorpio Sun 05-Feb-17 17:03:21

That's really interesting, thanks Mrs TP.

This censorship is fucking ridiculous.

"Cisheteropatrarchy". Can we play made-up-revolutionary-sounding word bingo? I call that one! I'm assuming they've actually mis-spelled pattiarchy but as its a made up word I can't be sure.

Poppyred85 Sun 05-Feb-17 17:36:00

Ha! Having gone on to mis-spell patriarchy myself! Bloody touch screen phone!
