To think that if your thread is about a feminist issue you should post on the feminist board

Just that really. Too many feminist board type threads disguised as AIBUs, but really wanting to bash trans or whoever they feel like hating on right now.

Let’s just all be who we are and lead a happy life.

Totally disagree. YABVVU.

LagerthaTheShieldMaiden · 27/09/2018 12:54

Yes, you are being very unreasonable.

"Bash trans or whoever they feel like hating on right now". What on earth does that mean?

Shallishanti123 · 27/09/2018 12:56

It means that the poor trans folk always have a hard time on mumsnet. Traditionally on the feminist board, but now it’s moved over to AIBU.

I just want AIBU to go back to stories about penis beakers without the confusion over who has the beaker!

MN doesn't allow hate speech. Please report any such and it will be deleted.

There is a balance though isn't there?

Girl Guides letting male bodied children share tents and showering facilities with female bodied children without the knowledge or consent of parents is an issue anyone with daughters needs to be aware of.

That isn't 'trans bashing' it is Safeguarding 101.

Shallishanti123 · 27/09/2018 12:59

They do though, concrete, and that’s what’s getting at me.

I disagree. If you don’t want to read about feminist issues I’d get off a site targeted at women.

Minniemountain · 27/09/2018 12:59

Are you trying to start a bun fight OP?

LagerthaTheShieldMaiden · 27/09/2018 12:59

I feel more sorry for poor women right now, than I do for "poor transfolk".

BertrandRussell · 27/09/2018 13:00

Report hate speech- it will be deleted.

Minniemountain · 27/09/2018 13:00

What you're calling hate speech, sounds like people saying things you disagree with.

LagerthaTheShieldMaiden · 27/09/2018 13:01

I just want AIBU to go back to stories about penis beakers without the confusion over who has the beaker!

I don't understand this? The person who has the beaker would be the man because only men have penises. Why would there be any confusion?

Sparklingbrook · 27/09/2018 13:01

Just hide the thread, you can do it from Active without even opening it.

BanananananaDaiquiri · 27/09/2018 13:02

YABU. Some of the issues raised in some of those threads affect all women, whether they overtly self-identify as feminist or not.

Shallishanti123 · 27/09/2018 13:03

I agree on safeguarding, but just because someone has a penis doesn’t mean they’re a risk.

OP posts:

YABU. This is a site predominantly aimed at women and these feminist issues affect all women so there’s no reason not to have them on the main boards.

I understand you might want to hide them away as you don’t want awareness raised about the serious issues affecting women right now but that’s not going to happen.

StoorieHoose · 27/09/2018 13:04

if Penis Beaker is the highlight of your mumsnetting you really need to read more threads! I suggested Classics

oh and YABU

ADastardlyThing · 27/09/2018 13:04

No one is bashing trans Confused

Suggest you hide threads you don't like and report transphobic posts.

And thank you for contributing to awareness of the issue, as every post regarding this subject does Smile

Another version of NAMALT: just because someone has a penis doesn’t mean they’re a risk

Once men as a class stop abusing women as a class we will talk.

BestBeforeYesterday · 27/09/2018 13:05

So what is an acceptable AIBU then OP? Are threads about frivolous crap the only ones that should be allowed?

Shallishanti123 · 27/09/2018 13:06

Maybe I am being unreasonable, I don’t know. It just feels like it’s an outbreak of terror about trans people and I don’t think that it’s proportionate.

Yes safeguarding must be addressed, but I am sure that the girl guides etc will all have policies to address it. I’m stuck on guides, because I agree they should be inclusive, yet it’s nice for girls to be together. Likewise boys, but I don’t know any boys only clubs.

I'm out, this is pure goady fuckery. Pull the other one, OP.

Bombardier25966 · 27/09/2018 13:06

I'm with you @Shallishanti123.

We're told to block the Feminism board if the trans posts are concerning, but then they dress them up as an AIBU to get them on to the main board again.

There are legitimate concerns around some trans issues, but they're taken over by a disproportionate level of hysteria from some who clearly have alterior motives.

It makes for very uncomfortable reading. Whatever happened to live and let live, accepting each other as individuals and, you know, a little bit of kindness?
