Wow, going a bit TERF there

Datun Mon 23-Oct-17 13:18:29

Missed it. What did they say? Any good?

Well initially negative about pg persons and quoted Sarah Ditum. Gloria H going on about things going too far etc. Then Coleen got all 'we must support them whatever their choice' and there was some hmmming at that. I reckon Gloria H is full on gender critical though. Will try to find it

The poll was good

Well, twitter is in full flow with the usual 'this is transphobic' shouters amidst a torrent of 'this is madness"

Datun Mon 23-Oct-17 13:59:22

we must support them whatever their choice

Why? What the fuck is the reasoning to that statement?

Would she say that to paedophiles, Weinstein?

And breathe.

People getting mixed up between transmen and transwomen.

One poor chap asserting that men can have womb and ovary implants that’s what this is all about.

The tweets are funny.

People seriously believe people born biologically male can have a womb transplant and become pregnant! I must have missed this incredible medical breakthrough. Hopefully this means my dp can carry and birth our next child a la Arnold in Junior.

I was curious about that so had a look:

Who knows WTF might be going on in the heads of some of these people?

Things are changing a bit in tabloid land too

Good god some people are stupid

Surprised they have made it to adulthood

You know, I was wondering the other day if a lot of people think that taking puberty blockers & then cross sex hormones mean that one then goes through the opposite sex puberty.

Rufustherenegadereindeer1 Mon 23-Oct-17 19:12:20

first

Someone i know has a boy who will be taking cross sex hormones

She is telling people that they will be going through a female puberty

This popped up in a Twitter email

AssignedPerfectAtBirth Mon 23-Oct-17 19:56:30

I had a tweeting interaction with a 15 yr transboy old who vehemently said they were not female. I tried to talk and be kind. It ended up with screams of suicide and my complicity in it. Shouldn't have engaged and it's really upsetting. Poor kid and is the same age as my son. Want to cry

God dammit that’s difficult. Just try to bear in mind that someone losing their shit like that over what is basically common sense, must be one of the most excruciating experiences, but is absolutely not your fault.

The problem with this ideology is that it sucks kids in. They end up being more damaged than ever. Therefore we have to stop the ideology.

flowers it must’ve been awful for you, I totally get it.

Datun Mon 23-Oct-17 20:23:39

I just want to add that it’s not you, or anyone who questions the ideology who is creating this mess. It is transactivists who beguile and coerce youngsters. They promise them the moon and deliver them shit.

And yes your compassion is necessarily and understandable. But it doesn’t include deception and kowtowing to an ideology that is leading these youngsters to path of self destruction.

AssignedPerfectAtBirth Mon 23-Oct-17 20:30:53

Thanks. I shouldn't have engaged and I never will again. Will leave it to the professionals who will be, I hope, not mermaids

MadamMinacious Tue 24-Oct-17 13:53:35

Jesus, that man on Twitter: 'biology is altered in someone transgender'.

No. No, it's not. Not ever.

Datun Tue 24-Oct-17 14:06:45

Shon Faye once again trying to distance true transwoman from those fake transwomen that he can’t stand. Despite the thread clearly being about transmen.

Shon Faye is infuriated that there are men out there purporting to be women who he doesn’t think are women. Unlike him.
