Now r/GenderCritical has gone, Helen from Mermaids wants to know which is the most transphobic

Not sure who's going to be targetted next, but MN is winning.

Aww Helen we’re the granddaughters of the witches your ancestors couldn’t burn 🤷‍♀️

I follow a variety of accounts, trans, GC and everyone in between.

There's some scary stuff on there.

They don’t get around much, do they?

Even if I agreed with the TRAs (which I don't) this desperate urge to silence every challenge to what is a very new ideology would make me worry about their attitude to free speech, open debate and totalitarianism.

Please answer my poll so I can divorce myself from responsibility.

Will she then say “What do we do now? in the style of a young blonde woman in a crap film? The kind that don’t actually exist and are designed to pander to male egos? Reece Witherspoon covers this brilliantly.

At least own it and go for "Will no one rid me of this turbulent priest?" Or “Release the hounds.” I imagine not as giving direction would mean personal responsibility.

Thought we were just a bunch of mums who no one took any notice of... why does she care about anything we say?

Love this ^

They obviously haven't heard of a certain fruit farm.

Deliriumoftheendless Tue 30-Jun-20 21:06:33

Are those the only choices then?

No sites that have mainly male members?

Bit like “which is the most delicious pie?- a) lard b) dog shit c) poison?”

Unleash the flying monkeys eh Helen.

We may need to deploy some recipes.

Hear, hear!

'Transphobic' meaning 'female people talking about female people's needs and rights' instead of thinking about nothing but what makes male people happy.

'Transphobic' meaning 'narrative not totally under control'.

Stop with the weird, totalitarianism Helen. Win the argument on its merits, prove that you're not anti-female and that females whose needs aren't compatible with mixed sex everything aren't going to be excluded and abandoned. Try #bekind.

Cry 'Havoc!' And let slip the dogs of war.

That person really sounds unhinged in that Tweet. Is she the person that sued Miranda Yardley (and had their arse handed to her by the judge)?

BaronessWrongCrowd Tue 30-Jun-20 21:30:51

Yup, the one and the same. Didn't she try and sue Miranda for transphobia?

WeetabixBananaHipsterFFS Tue 30-Jun-20 21:31:37

Did anyone not imagine MN would be next up?

BlackeyedSusan Tue 30-Jun-20 21:34:24

If I were on the fruit farm, I would be really offended to be ignored like that. Is it fruit phobia?

Comes in cackling wildly, does a broomstick loop de loop and leaves in a puff of green smoke.

Helen, you flatter me.

BaronessWrongCrowd Tue 30-Jun-20 21:35:59

They won't go after Kiwi farms. I wonder why? Hmmmmm
