A twitter account is saying that stickers in Manchester Oxford Road station have razor blades behind them put there by TERFS. If you are terfblocked you won't be able to view.

Razor blades and stickers again

This seems to be a rumour spreading around a lot of twitter and saying that 'anti trans' groups are using far right tactics.

They're between 20 and 40p each! Plus surely you'd be likely to cut yourself on them as you put the stickers up in the first place?
I remember hearing about it as a teen but it's an urban myth and everyone thought the same

What an astonishing coincidence that just as a, "Hands off my rights" campaign starts, and there's a push to label WPUK a "far-right hate group" there is something, conveniently to hand, to demonstrate that women are using "far-right" tactics.

Such serendipity that women oblige with that sort of extremist behaviour at this politically sensitive time!

Is anyone the least bit surprised by the pathetic lies these creeps tell?

There needs to be a TRA block list. Why isn't there one?

heresyandwitchcraft · 05/09/2018 21:21

This needs to be kept a careful eye on, because as Lisa M has said: narcissists leak admissions of guilt when they are accusing others.

I would be very worried that statements like this might encourage some of the most extremist TRAs to actually do this kind of horrendous act, in order to blame feminists Confused.......

MRAs never stop projecting, eh?

Theinconstantgardener · 05/09/2018 21:30

I'm furious at these lies. Im not on twitter but would like to ask them to prove it. Idiots.

Turph · 05/09/2018 21:36

I'm furious at these lies.
I'm more angry at the unquestioning compliance from them all. It's creepy. Find a group you don't like, "other" them, make them persona non grata, silence them...I mean, they can disagree all they like but the refusal to even engage is really infuriating (and worrying).

TheCountessofFitzdotterel · 05/09/2018 21:40

I am just sad about the stupidity of the thick idiots who believe it.

I'd challenge the TRA to post a photo showing the blades on the back of a sticker, but he'd most likely stick them on himself then.

SweetheartNeckline · 05/09/2018 21:53

You smelt it, you dealt it.

AbsintheFriends · 05/09/2018 21:59

Odd that there aren't photos. Everyone has a camera phone. You'd think if they were 'all over the toilets at Oxford Road' there would be at least one photo...

fucking liars

I also put them in mars bars at Halloween


NotTerfNorCis · 05/09/2018 22:12

'Badly hurt' after cuts to fingers but typing fine... something doesn't add up...

arranfan · 05/09/2018 22:24

I put it to you that there is a hate group of far-right crones who are poisoning apples and shuffling around offering them to implausibly beautiful modern-day Snow Whites.

Maybe it's all a more updated way of delivering pricks than relying upon the spindle of a spinning wheel.

And it's all reminiscent of a variation on atrocity propaganda.

Turph · 05/09/2018 22:27

ElenOfTheWays and formula milk, or have you stopped that now?

the call was coming from inside the house

Turph · 05/09/2018 22:30

404NameNotFound this is great: Remember too that no one is on the station without a travel ticket. If the TERF left, their prints are on the ticket retained by the exit machine. CSI for posting stickers up! A proportionate response I'm sure.

If I'm being entirely honest, I do live in a house made of confectionery and sweet baked goods. It's my hope that a couple of rosy cheeked youngsters lost in the forest will wander in, I shall enslave one, and the other shall be fattened for consumption.

Turph · 05/09/2018 22:34

Maybe with a strong enough magnet those would actually make it easier to peel off the stickers?
Then you get into the trouble of having to remove razor blades from a strong magnet. :/
This is amazing. I might even consider signing up to Twitter one day

PaintBySticker · 05/09/2018 22:34

It seems unlikely and my immediate thought was it’s a lie but I suppose it could be true. Does seem odd you’d post on Twitter about it but no photos. And it should be reported to the Police (who would presumably want to investigate the crime scene).
