Why do the British press hate people like me and my friends so much?

Mumsnet (or Momsnet? poster not sure) gets a special mention because although our posts might seem reasonable at first, they hide an underlying "hateful garbage" aimed at persuading "honest nice women."

For clarity, this MNetter does not wish any trans person out of existence. I do wish trans people happy lives free from discrimination in housing, employment, etc. I am not concerned about potential grandchildren.

Someone called?

Fortunately, as a honest, nice man, I'm immune.

Maybe I can develop some sort of antibody from my blood.

That bit about "me and my friends" - are all or most of this person's friends trans? Because if so, um, kind of proving our point about social contagion there.

I don’t think a lot of that generation read newspapers, let alone the Telegraph.

If it wasn't for Fekko we'd all be talking about prams!

a large part of society seems to hate me because I'm alive

But...but...I thought you wanted to be treated as a woman? You should welcome that feeling, you've arrived

Haha yeah my main problem with transgender ideology is that it might jeopardise my chances of becoming a grandparent. You got me.

I didn't protest against Clause 28 to support sterilising gay kids angry

Treacle grin

I will never understand how they make the leap from "trans women are male and should be treated as male for purposes of sex segregation" to "trans women don't/shouldn't exist". Like, males exist and by and large everyone is fine with this fact.

I don’t know if it’s funny or sad that such naïveté about adult human females exists. Horrifyingly sexist garbage about women of child rearing age, anyway. Who are these narcissistic child authors? They’ll grow up one day.

Young fools.

It’s you wimmin having opinions again. Always leads to trouble.

BubonicTheHedgehag Mon 14-Jan-19 01:15:10

There really isn't any hate at all. Not at all. No way.

Many of us are married to/partnered with men; many of us are mothers of both girls and boys, and we seek to do our best for all our children..

We are just trying to be careful, and seeking to protect and defend children and women against male aggression and violence.

"nice woman...want to talk about all things woman..."

grin, like hair and make-up, knitting, diets?

No wonder these nice women get sucked into feminism.

I love the idea that women, with their women brains are easily led. They, on the other hand, with their, erm, lady brains are strong and logical, and immune from irrational thought.

GlorianaCervixia Mon 14-Jan-19 03:09:30

If they don’t want women to think TRA’s are pushing a mysogynist ideology then maybe they should post such sexist nonsense?

They really haven’t got a clue.

*"nice woman...want to talk about all things woman..."

Thank you! I was wondering what it was I wanted to talk about.

Gender ideology hinges on sexist stereotypes, without them there is no gender.

Dimsumlosesum Mon 14-Jan-19 06:32:04

I dont hate anybody, I just dont want my DD sharing spaces where they are vunerable and therefore should be safe, with men who are allowed to say "Today I am going to be a woman."
It is tricky because I share a toilet with a transwoman at work; but I know her, she is absolutely sincere in her need and desire to be female. She IS female!
I cannot know every single transwoman or man who chooses to identify, for whatever purpose, as a woman. For this reason I do not understand why it is up to us to give them the benefit of the doubt.
I am sorry if I am stating the obvious, but I wanted to articulate how I feel. I wish things were different because I have no trouble with me or my DD sharing any space with any person who truly identifies as female, whether they have a penis or not. The problem is I cannot tell by looking, what is actually going on in that person's head.

God there's really no middle ground between wanting caution with children, and to make sure their health care isn't endangered by lies on computer systems and wanting them all to die in a fire is there.

No one wishes any harm. We r just exposing the lies they are telling and have been told.

Well as a child-free woman, I was only here for the pram talk.

You've not only let me down etc etc.
