A twitter account is saying that stickers in Manchester Oxford Road station have razor blades behind them put there by TERFS. If you are terfblocked you won't be able to view.

OMG. Don't you know that statistics are actual violence? You probably just killed at least six transgender folk with that post alone.

Ah, the dodgy suicide stats again. There have been 8 transgender suicides in the last nine years.
The UK suicide rate has been falling over that period, but it can be averaged out at around 6500 suicides per year x 9 = 58500 suicides.
Therefore transgender suicides over that period = 0.014%.

"These TERF stickers are hate crimes committed by bioessentialist cis privileged transmisogynists and it is time the police took them seriously or there will be rioting to stop suicides"

So many questions. How do you riot to stop suicides? How can a sticker in and of itself be a hate crime? What's a bioessentialist when it's at home?

the campaign thus far has been SO clean and polite on the GC side

Splutter! PMSL

What worries me is it's only a matter of time till some TRA zealot constructs their own razor sticker to "prove" their point.

Yes they're stupid enough. And yes it will backfire. What are the odds of a rampamt transactivist being the one to find a sticker with a razor blade under it. Or his 'mate'.

What worries me is it's only a matter of time till some TRA zealot constructs their own razor sticker to "prove" their point. They're mad enough. I wouldn't believe it was feminists unless caught razor-handed, it would just be such a stupid thing to do and the campaign thus far has been SO clean and polite on the GC side. ("Literal violence" of telling the truth aside obviously...)

Stickers? Aye, right hmm
Glasgow was famed for its razor gangs

Tongs! ya bass

Can you get them in witty designs, like those ones that look like sausage dogs made out of tartan material?

Tinfoil hats are one-size-fits-all but I'm sure you could embellish them, if you like!

DisrespectfulAdultFemale Tue 05-Feb-19 20:32:18

Disrespectful was that tweet tongue in cheek or real?!

To be honest, I couldn't tell. But it was so over-the-top; so hyperbolic that I loved it.

SunsetBeetch Tue 05-Feb-19 17:02:21

Hmmn charming.

And there's nothing on that stuff that says it's exclusively for heterosexual people.

nauticant Tue 05-Feb-19 16:06:25

If you scroll down that twitter thread (Samar Ziadat) you'll find they made this charming comment:

heterosexuality is a perversion

What is wrong with these people?

When I first got to know gay guys, decades ago when I was a young'un, it did seem to me that some had a deep rooted disgust for women's bodies.

It's happened to somebody else's friend in Glasgow too. Allegedly.

Apparently terf groups are putting up stickers in Glasgow with razor blades stuck underneath them. Be careful peeling any stickers off in your neighbourhood - using your keys are a good alternative. Love and rage to you pals.

Is it a radfem thing not to believe women of colour? A friend found these stickers and hurt herself trying to take one down.

Also don’t appreciate you directing the police in my direction. I don’t want to engage with the police.

Lol 7! I need to rtfs (again) but yes it would probably boil my piss too.

Redshoeblueshoe Tue 05-Feb-19 11:43:45

I might have to report this thread.
Surely it should be in Classics

7Days Tue 05-Feb-19 11:39:19

Lol NeuroTrash 'Arse wring thread.' Thought you were just annoyed like Boils my Piss.
Actually did laugh!

Vixxxy Tue 05-Feb-19 11:29:16

Ridiculous lies.

As a side note, does anyone know where I can get some of these stickers (sans razorblades)

vivariumvivariumsvivaria Tue 05-Feb-19 11:22:44

I also agree about misogyny in gay culture. I was unaware of it when I was younger, but, now even drag sets my teeth on edge.

That and the fact that gay marriage happened before reproductive rights were sorted in Ireland. Why? Cos men wanted to be married, and men don't care if women need abortions.

Sirius what is Janey doing jumping on it? <head desk>
