'She's a genius', he says. I concur.

Good article but dropkicks means punts which means cunts. It’s away that men can use the word dropkick to mean cunts
Really?! This puts a new spin on the Green politician in Australia that called TERFS 'trans exclusionary rightwing dropkicks'/TERDs. It was bad enough that he used a term to equate women to excrement - if the dropkick thing is also a gendered insult that makes it even worse.

And thanks, good article.
'Those hard-right rabblerousers infamously called feminists “feminazis”. Now the woke left calls them “Nazi-adjacent”. In both cases the low aim is to shame women into silence, to drive these uppity broads off the streets and back into the kitchen, presumably.'

That’d be nearly twenty years ago. Rhyming slang is about as widely understood here as Chaucer. The pollie was comfortable calling women turds/ shit but calling us cunts would take him over the line.
To not derail the thread, it’s so upsetting and confusing to see this being couched as a right wing vs left wing issue. The right wing -who really don’t care about women’s rights - are the ones speaking out in support?
