Very interesting article; even when they accept transitioned TW they still get the misogynistic abuse.

I hadn't seen a thread, sorry if there is one.

Her app is for anyone female, regardless of their identity. It uses AI to verify a photo when you join. So despite being inclusive of "afab non binary" and I'm guessing most if not all transmen, it is TRANSPHOBIC. Because.

Same story, When will the mainstream wake up?

TRAs dont care about transmen. Just transwomen

TRAs don't seem very vulnerable when they're aggressively forcing their way into women's spaces.

You are not allowed to assert being a woman or girl in a woman's only space as a basic right, end of.

In the age of huge technological wonders, where even AI knows your sex, we are back to square one.

I joined this app just to support her but didn't really know what to do with it!

Googling the app, I can't say I'm impressed with an app that decides who is female based on tech. I feel like there are a million places that can go wrong. Also hmm about a social media site for girls AND women and called "giggle". envy

Thank you for the update. It's sad she's getting such a hard time. Misogyny alive and kicking
