Are Women becoming the underclass?

I gone through a number of threads this weekend I have found

- Swim England will advise that I am to be re-educated
- the Labour Party no longer wants my vote if I want women's rights to be upheld
- the BBC think it's fair to have trans women talking on behalf of all women on male dominated panels
- lesbians organisations and events are under threat from trans activists

So a very small minority want to remove the hard fought for women's rights. They are being actively supported by men and media organisations. We are not allowed to disagree or speak out.

I fear for the future and I fear for our daughters futures.

The ruling structure will be men and trans women. Women will lose the vote under some 're-education' policy - in another 5 years we will get letters asking us to report to internment camps.

Sinister ... history repeating itself.

There's another thread about how violent and dangerous practices from BDSM porn are being normalised. I am seriously concerned about women's safety and human rights worldwide.

Are we worth nothing more than our wombs and bodies? Probably until they perfect the out of body womb. Even our bodies are becoming worthless, especially with the sex robots and wait until they perfect a cleaning robot too. All biological females will killed before they even start. I've always hoped my girls would have a better life than me,I'm so afraid they're not.

Ann Summers, pioneers in women's sexual pleasure have teamed with Pornhub, an online porn site who don't verify their material, much of which is very real eape footage.

Female politicians and party members are being silenced and suspended for voicing disagreement.

Feminists of long standing are being no-platformed.

Period poverty is being denied as an issue.

TRAs are being named the "New Suffragettes".

Children are being put forward for transitioning before they really know what "boy" and "girl" mean.

Female genital mutilation is a prevalent albeit taboo part of society.

This is not what women bled for 100 years ago.

It's only been a 100 years. The patriarchy has been alive and kicking for a few millenia. It's not going anywhere so soon.

I was horrified when I came to the Uk first (about 10-12 years back) it's the same attitudes everywhere - just with a veneer of egalitarianism. Scratch the surface and it's all there.

And in some ways it's worse here as people dismiss it all as first world problems... what are you whining for... you've got it so good. Yes, you have. This is the best it ever has been BUT there's miles to go.... and currently looks like we are sliding back.

I have stopped reading all the FWR threads now - bad for my health but I try to keep on top of all the links, consultations etc.

YY to all of you.

However, the cleaning robot - I'm sorry, but I;d quite like one of those myself, cos I've never been brilliant on housework, and where can I get one...?....

Women have always been the lowest of the low, the slave to the slave. I doubt much will change untill there is a violent female revolution...which will never happen.

It is looking a bit like the prelude to the Handmaids Tale.

It is frightening.

SweetGrapes Sun 11-Feb-18 22:57:46

A yes here to the cleaning robot too. I will skip the sex ones.

Yup, that pretty much nails it.

Except this is no longer 1918, women have come a hell of a long way in the realms of organising, naming it, sharing information, raising the expectations of women, reducing gender stereotypical limitations, sharing information, creating women's spaces - the answer to an establishment about to try out The Handmaidens Tale is fuck the fuck off with that shit and here's why. To create this kind of mess is going to take women co operating, and there's a whole bunch of women on these boards and in meetings across the UK who are seriously not going to co operate at all.

In the whingeing from the group around TFW and his court case it's mentioned that women failing to obediently shut up and stop talking about this stuff as commanded is a hate crime in their eyes because it's having an effect. It's working.

The trans brigade dont even understand what it is to be a woman.

It is all superficial and based on the way men see us. Wearing clothes and make up and being granted access to female spaces. Its as far as they can see.

I have never seen a transwoman behave like a woman or giving a shit about real women's issues. For example, maternity pay, equal pay between men and women, better maternity care, perinatal mental health care., etc.

They dont give a shit. Its all about their right to dress like a woman and using a female toilet though they have to stand up.

It's superficial and nothing to do with really being a woman. They think like men as they are and always will be men.

Been watching Darkest Hour smile

"Success in not final, failure is not fatal. It is the courage to continue that counts."

"Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning."

Buckle up for the ride! And some wine
We are not going anywhere without a fight!

Horridemma Sun 11-Feb-18 23:43:27

Well we need to make the fucking politicians realise we count ! At the moment they couldn't give a shit about 51% of the population

There is a political void which needs to be filled
