From the Hell No, We Won't Go FB page (https://www.facebook.com/nevergoinganywhere/) which itself linked it from the Everyday Meninism page)

Madness.

FluffyBunyip Wed 21-Feb-18 17:08:24

Oh now c'mon. NOW they're just being silly! wink

I find it disturbing that anyone believes this nonsense. Teaching critical thinking skills to children needs to be a priority I think!

TinselAngel Wed 21-Feb-18 17:11:06

The trans animals will be much more exploited, no doubt.

gingergenius Wed 21-Feb-18 17:14:54

I'm just going to put this here!

CuriousaboutSamphire Wed 21-Feb-18 17:15:41

Oh take it away and shoot it. Put it out of my misery!

I don't think I can take much more of this. It is just weird now! Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay beyond amusing, irrititing, angering, it has become more Post Trans, Post Truth now!

FluffyBunyip Wed 21-Feb-18 17:15:42

What does it say that I'm not sure if this is a spoof or not? It's just like the usual TRA logic.

NotWithABang Wed 21-Feb-18 17:16:38

They're really reaching to make that link! Jesus. Is there anything that ISN'T transphobic in the eyes of 'everyday feminism'?
I mean I understand that the likes of Riley J Dennis (who is a man!) would just prefer it if all women ceased to exist, but fucking hell. This is sheer madness.

CuriousaboutSamphire Wed 21-Feb-18 17:16:44

Oh look, an unnecessary 'tit' snuck into a word there, my apologies for being so genderist, sexist, or whateverist it is today!!

UpstartCrow Wed 21-Feb-18 17:17:08

I invoke Poe's Law and claim my £5 prize.

ItsAllGoingToBeFine Wed 21-Feb-18 17:17:18

I've seen that before and things are so ridiculous now that I genuinely can't tell if it's real or not.

NotWithABang Wed 21-Feb-18 17:17:22

fluffy it looks like it's from Everyday Feminism. That's not a spoof website, it's 100% genuine, although some of the stuff they post is just hmm

Trans ewes are ewes, you fucking bigots! Some ewes have horns*! grin

* I'm not an expert on livestock but to the best of my knowledge, this is, in fact, the case for some breeds.

DreamADream Wed 21-Feb-18 17:21:44

Christ, in my experience vegans are the first to call people out on transrights etc! I've been pulled up on it myself (also vegan)

PerspicaciaTick Wed 21-Feb-18 17:25:23

Farmers are bigots for not trying to milk a bull.

mamaryllis Wed 21-Feb-18 17:30:35

Totes Perspicacia. Those bigoted farmers should be using an online pharmacy to purchase lactation meds and build up the milk supply and including the bull in the dairy herd. If it’s good enough for human babies to exist on man milk I don’t see why not. Power to the bulls with, erm, udders.

SurfnTerfFantasticmissfoxy Wed 21-Feb-18 17:31:43

Terfous - you are indeed correct, but absolutely NO ewes have testicles 😉. If they did, they wouldn't be a ewe.... that's not to say that every sheep without testicles is a wee, they aren't, but there are absolutely no ewes with testicles, just as there are absolutely no women with penises.

But since biological facts are apparently transphobic it was only a matter of time before they anthropomorphised the argument onto animals.....

SurfnTerfFantasticmissfoxy Wed 21-Feb-18 17:32:50

I'm sure all the trans-ewes are bleating their hearts out at the LITERAL VIOLENCE I just visited upon them 😆

DickTERFin Wed 21-Feb-18 17:39:12

Better not show them this then. Oh the exclusionism!

CertainHalfDesertedStreets Wed 21-Feb-18 17:52:37

Is the message here 'don't oppress it, eat it'? confused

Mxyzptlk Wed 21-Feb-18 18:02:12

If transwomen are real women, they should be able to resonate with other women who happen to have those "female" body parts and functions.
Feminism is about supporting the rights of women, even if one's own experiences are different.

MrsDoylesTeaBags Wed 21-Feb-18 18:10:29

That's just.......weird. confused
I often wonder at the workings of a transactivists' brain.

BahHumbygge Wed 21-Feb-18 18:16:23

Perspicacia... you'll get some kind of white liquid if you try to milk a bull, but I won't be wanting to put any in my tea envy grin

Valentinesfart Wed 21-Feb-18 18:16:56

So while trying to find that article I found this from 2014 They can't even keep up with their own bullshit.

everydayfeminism.com/2014/12/animal-rights-feminist-issue/

Animal Bodies Are Used to Normalize Rape Culture Animals are sexed. The tortures inflicted upon animals, then, will be specific to their sex and it is no surprise that for female animals, their capacity to breed overwhelmingly dictates how their bodies will be ontrolled.Factory farming, and even measures used in “happy” farms, institutionalizes forced sex and violent systems of oppression. The majority of animals who are killed each year are slaughtered through the factory farming system. Female animals endure a life of repeated rape and perpetual pregnancies and after they’re “spent”, they’re slaughtered.

Op's article everydayfeminism.com/2016/03/animal-rights-oppressive/ is from 2016
