 Listening to some TERF spew TERF bollocks on CBC and I'm struck by how close the TERF (and their buddies, the misogynist right) sound to the arguments of anti-immigration types. You were not born X, therefore you can never be X, etc. Is it then coincidence that the two greatest points of unity on the Alt Reich are the opposition to the human rights of immigrants and trans people?

Not a coincidence at all.

Ooo separate but equal! That trick always works! gags

I read an utterly infuriating article where a woman brought out her credentials as a survivor of child sexual abuse to bolster her claim that trans women should be forced to use separate third bathrooms [which don't actually exist] in order to prevent the has-not-actually-happened assaults in bathrooms by crossdressing predators. I wants to shake her and shout "How DARE you turn the pain inflicted on you into a justification for bigotry against someone else!"

It's so... as well as infuriating it's just boggling how much energy TERFs and other transphobes want to put into harassing people for existing, people who just want to be left alone to exist. As a Black person and an immigrant I can't fail to see the paralells.

Hey, you said something, though. Go you!

(Did anyone ask the rape survivors? That particular argument reminds me of the arguments over non-con fic, where people say "writing non-con fic hurts survivors of sexual assault!" and then some of us say "we write non-con fic because we are survivors, as part of recintextualizing what was done to us" and then people go DOES NOT COMPUTE and it's all such fun.)
