Al is back online now and the first reason they give is to protect members from those evil doxxing t*RFS. Then further down the post they speak a little about the mod drama but nothing to do with his and his husbands disgusting behaviour! It's been really telling how most other subs went dark in protest against but Al only went dark to protect the mod.

I just saw that now! Seemed like an obvious fishing post. My guess is any comment disagreeing would be deleted and the poster outed as a t*rf and banned. You literally can't have a debate on reddit if you are on the side of women. The comment about transphobes being on the side of the patriarchy and being ultra Conservative made my blood boil, I've been going on feminist marches since the 80s and have protested BNP rallies, how does believing in biological sex make me Conservative?!

He's an English celeb.

He was gnc and it was refreshing. Not sure what's happened that's made everyone turn on him now tho?

Does she honestly believe all hetero sex is this one sided. Everytime I've been with a man I was treated with respect and we have both had fun, same with the women I've been with too because that's how adults have sex, it's two people enjoying themselves!

I think Biden might calm the trans issue. When trump banned trans people from the military it became 'cool' and anti establishment to be trans and if you said anything against it you were seen as Conservative or 'one of the bad guys'. I'm hoping taking away trump will make it easier to have grown up conversations about it.

These clothes would not have become 'taboo'/sexualised for the husband to become obsessed with and the wife would not feel threatend by the husbands choice in clothing.

This right here is male privilege. He can make believe being a woman until it gets difficult then skip back to presenting male. American women don't have that luxury, if trump rolls back reproductive and freedom rights for women then there is nothing they can do except live with it.

It's almost like female oppression is some how linked to our biology and our sex is how the patriarchy has controlled women for centuries.

Before peaking, how much of an ally were you? by Dravidian in GenderCritical

[–]Penguinberri 15 insightful - 1 fun15 insightful - 0 fun16 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I took my trans friend on his first 'girls shopping trip'. We went and got him measured for a bra, had a make over and bought female clothes. It was a nice day but also weird because I have never done the thing we were doing (grew up poor so never have had a proper bra fitting I always grab cheap bras from asda, don't wear makeup because I work in a lab all day, and I get my clothes from charity shops not places like zara etc).

The crazy thing is at the time it felt so supportive but he is actually the reason I peaked. We did all these 'female' coded things then when I talked about how our school was setting up a separate bathroom for transgender students he got really angry because that would be othering them. I tried to explain that I've worked in a school for years and have actually caught male and female students doing things in bathrooms before (I work in Upper school so these were 16/17year olds) so I know from first hand experience that hormonal teenagers can't always control themselves.

His complete black and whiteness over the school bathroom issue peaked me. Plus he was a 26year old man who didn't work in education so why was he so bothered.

[–]Penguinberri 18 insightful - 1 fun18 insightful - 0 fun19 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Vulva owner?! The language is so dehumanising. By this logic: trans women who are pre-op are penis-owners and its OK to call them as such?

It's so frustrating that this is how woman are spoken about now. I do think this is coming more from people who are trying to be woke, rather than actual transexual(medically diagnosed) people because this kinda of language was never around 4 years ago.

See stuff like this shows how entrenched in patriarchy they are. In old matriarchal cultures the three stages of women were given equal reverence. You have the maiden, the mother and the old crone, each stage has its own power but the old crone would be no less than the maiden, just a different stage in life.

Yeah the political landscape over here is very different to America. Plus I think even our bathroom debate is different. American toilet stalls have almost no privacy where as in the UK our doors have very little gaps and there was already alot of single use/unisex loos. I think that's why when the "bathroom debate" was raging on we didn't get it.

The Rachel dozeal thing is very confusing to me. I'm a white woman so maybe it could be something I don't understand but to me race has always seemed inter changeable and created by society. I see race as a massive spectrum where as gender is so obviously binary: man or woman with genetic intersex as the outliers.

I was the same! There was an artical in the papers years ago about how a "brave tra stood up against an evil hate shouting trf and punched her" At first I was all "yeah take down the person yelling hate" Then I actually read the article the "trf" was a tiny old woman maybe in her 60s or 70s and she was simply saying biology is real. The brave "woman" who hit her was an obvious male, 6 foot plus in his 20s with muscles.

That was my peak and it lead me to gc on reddit and I've not stopped reading since.
