If you are on twitter please report this tweet.

Even better please dig for their crowdfunder to challenge Scottish Government redfining women to include men. They are £18000 carrotts down and it would be a great help to them to have tangible help. Three days to go.

what the fuck is going on in SNP. Alyn Smith has a lot to answer for as has sturgeon.

Ignoring the hate women in Scotland are getting just for standing up for their rights

Toxic

Done

Exactly littl Sturgeon’s a world class feminist didn’t you know hmm

Alicethroughtheblackmirror Thu 12-Nov-20 16:27:44

And all the usual suspects liked or RTd it - including Mimmymum, Alyn Smith's on-off boy friend Jordon, Cameron Archibald (who wrote scurrilous things about Joan), and - shock! - the partner of SNP WOMEN's convener Rhiannon Spear.

Rhiannon is always complaining that she's being bullied at the least provocation so I'm sure she'll be horrified by her fiance... hmm

BetsyM00 Thu 12-Nov-20 20:13:44

And of course Nicola Sturgeon tweeted in support of Rhiannon, calling out the 'bullies'.

Don't suppose she's said anything in support of FWS...? <tumbleweed>

Anyway, FWS did a great response:

That was a great thread Betsy

I see FWS are still 18k pounds of compost (??? I am NOT good at this al- far more a spade is a spade type wink) short if anyone can dig a bit more...

fatblackcatspaw Thu 12-Nov-20 21:28:53

One of the responses.

"All who bandwagon Black people's issues for gain whilst not giving a fuk about or supporting Black people, specifically Black Women's causes, are metaphorically wearing the KKK hood."

Yes.

TRAs repeatedly show themselves up as being absolute fucking racists.

So they can giggle at that cartoon all they want. I'll have every right to point out as worse than EDLers.

Racist pricks.

PurpleHoodie Fri 13-Nov-20 13:45:23

£10 to For Women Scotland from me in the name of the racist TRAs who've prompted me to dig a little.

Pricks.

The irony of this appearing the same day as Glinner's site publishes this investigation into Aimee Challenor:

grahamlinehan.substack.com/p/ashton-challenor-the-boy-who-disappeared

I suppose they think we're too stupid to realise what they're about. I'm afraid it's all too obvious.

TalkingtoLangClegintheDark Fri 13-Nov-20 15:05:58

Thanks for the timely reminder about the need for carrots. Managed to dig up a few.

Gibbonsgibbonsgibbons Fri 13-Nov-20 16:48:47

I’ve just been reading poetry with my kids, told them this one’s by anonymous & the older ones replied “anonymous was a woman” grin

Made me think again just how important it is to have the power of naming & I’ve chucked some more compost on.

<longest bump ever>

Glinners report is in-depth and blistering.

Thanks for sharing.

Mums "We dont hate trans people, honest" net, eh?

BaronessWrongCrowd Sat 14-Nov-20 12:55:03

Ahh the old 'Mumsnet hates trans people' lame attempt at gotcha! Huzzah hmm. You know, as the old fashioned kind of women, we are allowed to be pro our own sex you know and work for the protect of women and girls.

What concerns me is that you think that comparing ForWomenScotland to the KKK is perfectly acceptable. Interesting.

Women not allowed to talk about things that affect them - Bad.

Insulting pro-women women - good.

Hmmmm
