A woman was thrown out of a FB feminist group for challenging the idea that transwomen get periods.

apparently they DO get periods just without the small aspect of bleeding.

She was told that she was minimising transwomen's periods.

Periods of what, exactly?

'She was told that she was minimising transwomen's periods.'

Where do you even begin with this level of madness? shock

TheUterati Wed 25-Apr-18 13:26:57

That would be the non-existent muscle movements of the non-existent uterus would it?

TheUterati Wed 25-Apr-18 13:27:26

Hard to minimise something that does not exist.

Favourite comment -

'He should see my small aspect. I'd be happy to mail him my used pads next time. Asshole.'

How would you detect a phantom pregnancy in a pregnant transwoman? By dowsing?

ShotsFired Wed 25-Apr-18 13:30:46

Prompting the muscle movement to "do the thing"

WHAT MUSCLE? The only thing I can see being stretched is credibility.

The sheer hate for someone who dares come along with basic facts is staggering.

Ritz - have you seen the ones on FB who claim to be pregnant and then to have suffered a miscarriage?

If pressed, they will agree that there was no foetus, but still claim it to be a phantom pregnancy as real as any woman's phantom pregnancy, they still claim the psychological and emotional attachment to the pregnancy that a woman feels and claim the same distress when the 'miscarriage' occurs. There was one who was fundraising for one of those 'newborn dolls' to help him work through his grief.

I am pretty much off FB now, but will see if I can find it.

Good grief.

Well, at least they can't complain that women talking about biological function is exclusionary, can they?

Ritzsaltedcrackers Wed 25-Apr-18 13:35:43

No! I haven't seen it. These men are just entirely delusional. It is frightening.

ErrolTheDragon Wed 25-Apr-18 13:35:50

If you don't have a womb, it's not period pain. A bio male can't possibly know what it feels like, any more than a bio woman can know what pain in the testicles feels like. Minimising and appropriating women's pain is misogynistic.

Melamin Wed 25-Apr-18 13:36:22

Periods of what, exactly? Lunacy? That's monthly, isn't it?

Reminds me of that scene in the Handmaid’s Tale where the handmaid is in labour and the wife is pretending to be too.

TheUterati Wed 25-Apr-18 13:39:20

Delusional and also medically unwise. This guy posted photos of his distended abdomen. There was genuine and severe distension. It looked BAD. Several of us were exhorting him to seek medical attention. Nope. It was a pregnancy and he was going to be a beautiful mamma.

For the life of me I cannot remember his name. Will post link if I do....

Uterati, that might be the most bonkers thing I have ever read. And there's stiff competition for these days. How can anyone be taking these people seriously? The attention seeking and ego and victim mentality is sickening

TheUterati Wed 25-Apr-18 13:43:02

Except at least the wife Handmaids belonged to the reproductive class that could get pregnant and give birth......
Who knew that a non-pregnant woman pretending to give birth while a labouring woman does would actually score fewer points on the scale of delusion.....

I no longer have a uterus therefore I no longer have periods, it's that simple and I was born with a uterus hmm

TransAuthor Wed 25-Apr-18 13:46:33

Why all this misgendering? Please just show people respect.
