This is my main issue as a bi woman. You don't want to date me? Fine. What happens more often though: a lesbian will date me but imply I'm second-class or damaged goods, or she'll refer to bi women as men's sloppy seconds. Thankfully, I see way less of this than I did when I came out as a teenager.
Are bi people esp. at risk (health, etc.)? by PenseePansy in LGBDropTheT
[–]Veneficca 4 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 0 fun5 insightful - 0 fun5 insightful - 1 fun - 2 years ago (0 children)
I'm bi. One thing I've noticed in my life (socially, in recovery and as a counselor) are people who've experienced hard lives and sexual trauma often have their boundaries eroded to nil. They've been numbed out of touch with their genuine desires and many have wound up doing sex work. Many people I've known like this say they are bi because they've had to sleep with same sex partners in their line of work, or they've done so in prison, or for drugs, or they just don't know how to say no to people.
But would they be straight or gay otherwise, if they'd grown up in a safe and healthy environment? I'm guessing some would. I'm not say this describes most bisexuals, I'm bi and know many healthy bi people. But I do think that trauma and mental illness push a certain population into habits and environments where they are pressured to convince themselves they are bi. Like a woman I know who would never seek a woman on her own, but has had 2 boyfriends who insist on her participating in threesomes and swinging and she goes along with it (without liking it) because she has numerous mental health issues and lets men walk all over her.

It's obvious from the comments that most people haven't read JKR's real words about this. Lots of "cishet" people on there performing wokeness and making it clear they've done zero research or given any critical thought to the topic.
Now that I know how Alison feels about this, I'm wondering if she has ever deliberately ignored questions about difficult trans employees/bosses that she's received. There are plenty of contentious issues in the workplace, like Tom from accounting suddenly hanging out in the employee fitness center women's locker room, or companies changing their stats on female leadership after 2 executives transition, or people being told to put their pronouns in their email signature. I'm guessing she would either ignore those questions or pretend not to see the problem. However, I do think she was sensible with the TIM who was peeved about seeing a coworker's menstrual products in her own car - if that was her column that tackled it.

Why do so many women deny the existence of misogyny? by RedditHatesLesbians in GenderCritical
I know a lot of conservative women like this. It's frustrating because so many of them seem to want the benefits of feminism AND the benefits of benevolent sexism and are never willing to challenge men or examine their own patriarchal complicity. They're happy to point out misogyny when another nation, religion or political party can be blamed, but when it's coming from inside the house? They almost always stay quiet. They want safety, respect and equal pay without the conflict of naming their own men as part of the problem.
That said, I also know women who feel judged about not being "pure" enough for feminism. To them, feminism isn't a place of support and positive change, it's a tribunal that will castigate them for wearing makeup, liking the wrong musicians and films, wanting to be a SAHM, etc. Or they read about sex-positive feminism and recoil because they don't see prostitution, porn or casual sex as good for women. I think a lot of women aren't even sure what a feminist platform is these days.
Agree with all of this. Painfully true.
Theory: privileged woman + no kids, more likely to = trans-supportive? by NDG in GenderCritical
I don't have children, but I have never been able to go for days without reminders that I'm female. Whether it's ovarian cysts hurting me or men harassing me in the street or watching mediocre male colleagues get accolades and attention while exceptional female colleagues get ignored or people assuming I'm a subordinate or the constant comments about my looks - it's always there. Couldn't escape it if I tried.
However, I do think you're right about privilege being a factor. I see this in friends who have media/academic jobs where they're surrounded by people with all the "right" views and they don't know a single person in prison or who's stayed in a women's shelter. The repercussions of trans activism are vague and distant to them. A lot of women's issues are.

Almost all of them had girlfriends when they transitioned. Suddenly they were "Kyle" or "Jacob" or whoever, and growing facial hair, but they'd still come to every lesbian event and try to claim both identities. It was very weird.
I only know a few of them now. Inevitably, that circle splintered as they kept coming to LGB events while insisting they were men, not lesbians, and their lesbian partners were told to call themselves bi or straight - it was a hot fucking mess.
But I know one has detransitioned, one seems to be doing so without calling it that, and one is still with her original GF and "living as a man."

The Ellen stories remind me of how I've seen female executives treated over the years. There are always stories about them being snobby or cold or demanding, while truly terrible male executives are accepted until they get physically abusive. Exalted men are expected to be brusque, give commands, ignore low-level staff, maintain alliances with powerful men of dubious integrity as part of "playing the game." But high-achieving women must constantly demonstrate humility and deference to prove they don't feel superior to others.
To me, the question isn't "is Ellen rude? flawed?" but "is Ellen behaving more rudely than other male celebrities?" I virtually never hear about famous men being "mean" and "staff are told to never look them in the eye" and that kind of thing, only sexual harassment/abuse stories are circulated. Yet most of the male celebrities I've met act like gods and everyone scrambles to take care of their needs with jaw-dropping subservience. So whenever I hear that a female politician, actor or celebrity is arrogant.... Maybe they are but I'll start giving a shit when people hold male celebrities to the same standard.

We can address misrepresentations of radical feminism and try to improve at the same time. This post's conversation is about inaccuracies in depictions of radical feminism. I won't be silent when that happens and I will continue to point out liberal feminists' hypocrisy.
I agree somewhat, but I see far worse in liberal feminist communities. There tends to be a very condescending "othering" of women of color, and an assumption that all feminists - even all women - are white middle-class+ Americans. Their silence toward TIM's comparisons of black women and TIMs speaks volumes.
I've also seen radfems accused of being racist simply for criticizing Islam or acknowledging that male violence is a global problem, rather than just "cishet white men."

This shit is a toxic tsunami but you know what? It's showing Western women everywhere just how tenuous their "freedom" is and how many people would like to see us permanently silenced and subjugated. This is chilling, yes, but it's only revealing what's always been there. Now, instead of women thinking their experiences are individual and their husband/boss/rapist was just a bad egg, women are realizing this is class-based, not their fault and something they can fight through female solidarity.

I'm bisexual. Trans people have pursued me thinking I'm a lesbian (I had a high-profile LTR with a woman) and then are disappointed when they find out I'm bi - it's not as validating. Others have told me angrily that I have no reason for turning them down since I'm bisexual.
I really dislike the idea that bisexuals are the natural sex partners for TIM. I like men and women, but why would that mean I'm attracted to a man in bad makeup who's grown small breasts and has a dick that can't get hard? Nothing about that is what turns me on in men or women.
I've also met so many trans whose bizarre ideas of being a man (transmen condescending to me as the little woman) or lesbian (transwomen thinking 2 women together are a giddy romance of bubble baths and lingerie) tell me they could never be a viable partner. I think in general, trans people tend to bring a lot of issues to the table that make them unattractive to people. Those I know in solid relationships are with partners they had before transitioning.

Do you think the number of misogynist, antisocial, and just generally unpleasant men is increasing? by TheSeventhSense in GenderCritical
Yes and I think it was inevitable. Feminism taught women to raise their standards while many men still subscribe to male supremacism. Our expectations - hers for equality and respect, his for submission - were always going to end in a car crash. Men grow up seeing movies where they're the hero and the pretty girl is the prize. Their fathers and grandfathers were CEOs, senators, chiefs of staff while the only woman in the room was the secretary. Now they're adults and their female peers are out-achieving them, they may have to answer to a female boss, and they have to make themselves attractive to get a partner - because women don't need them for economic survival anymore.
No surprise that they show a growing bitterness and hostility toward women. Men feel cheated. Internet culture has allowed them to marinate in misogynist myths and porn has given them even more unrealistic expectations. They can never say "I'm wrong" so they double down on blaming women when their strategies fail. I have male relatives in their 20s who live in a fantasy world (all women have to do is complain about being complimented and a man will lose his job; all women are gold-diggers who use men for expensive dinners and stealing their husband's assets in divorce court, etc) and they simply will not listen to facts, statistics or the real people/situations around them. Their fantasy world is too attractive to their egos.
I don't know the solution. It's going to get worse before it gets better. This will change only when men realize it's hurting themselves - they don't care if something hurts women.

SCOTUS decisions increasingly favor males by WrongToy in GenderCritical
Yeah, I have zero problem with what people wear and welcome men in dresses. However, I used to write materials for funeral home clients and they repeatedly stressed that the materials had to be super bland and basic - because grieving people need simplicity as their reading comprehension is typically lower than normal. They can be dazed, in shock, overwhelmed with emotion, unable to make simple choices, and can shut down at the first sign of contention (a family fight or old feud) or any kind of controversy. And they don't want older relatives or children asking loud questions or causing disruption. So funeral home staff tend to master this kind of low-key, gentle assistance where they dress conservatively and speak in low voices. It's the last place for drama and confusion or redirecting attention to a staff member. A reasonable person would grasp that and save "Aimee time" for after hours.

There's no pleasing them. Scolding and purging women is the point. If there's one thing TRA has taught me, it's how excited men get by punishing women. I always wondered why men put so much effort into the witch trials of yore - women were already subjugated, why not rest easy? Why make all the effort to humiliate, torture and kill so many women? The answer is they enjoy it. It's a hobby for some, a vocation for others. They can't feel dominant without actively invading and terrorizing women's spaces.

I read Martine's book "Digital Immortality" a few years ago before I knew who he was. My jaw dropped multiple times at his bizarre logic gaps and his clear inability to consider other people's rights and boundaries. No interest in privacy at all - he seemed to view people as raw material he could use to try out his theories. Very frightening individual.
If "transphobia" as defined by TRAs is hate speech, then has "hate speech" lost all meaning? by Riothamus in GenderCritical
Not paranoid. Many of us think this. It's orchestrated and skillfully implemented to delegitimize LGB, feminism and the left.

They absolutely embody the worst of the Karen stereotype, from bad hair to trying to get people fired to expecting the world to cater to them.
JK Rowling just spoke again. She's fighting back by Lilith_Fair in GenderCritical

I'm starting to worry about her safety. Not kidding. She's been so calm, eloquent and compelling that she is singlehandedly waking up millions of people to the truth and I worry that some of the more deranged (or well-funded) TRAs will try to shut her up for real.
As bad as some of the tweets to her are, I'm sure she, her publishers and associates are receiving truly frightening threats. They nailed a dead rat to the Vancouver rape crisis center, god knows what they will send or do to her.
Has anyone been keeping up on Vanessa Guillens story? by its1342 in GenderCritical
I've been following it on YouTube. People are willing to call Fort Hood shady or criticize the military, but they won't use the words "misogyny" or "rape culture."
The whole story is so disgusting. I don't buy the official story - it's impossible that he hammered her to death and cleaned up himself and all the blood in such a short time and the K-9s didn't pick up on any death smell. We'll never know what really happened or how many men were involved in the cover-up. How do they sleep at night? Because they don't consider women human. They think we're their property to use and dispose of as they please.
There were over 5 "Karen" posts on r/popular today by [deleted] in GenderCritical

Alice, people are posting photos of random middle-age women in public and mocking them as Karens. Not because of their behavior, but because of their age and womanhood. Just being female and unsexy is now enough to deserve public shaming. Groups of men and women without masks are being labelled as Karens and people act as if only women are the problem while men get a pass. "Karen" may have started over rude women but now it is being used as code to villainize vast numbers of women who've done nothing wrong.
TIMs don’t just think they are women. They think they are better than them. by Moonwalker777 in GenderCritical
Reminds me of the 50something guy on the TLC trans show who was shocked he didn't look like a beautiful teenage girl once he was dolled up. He really thought he could morph into the image in his head. It's just bizarre that they think their jaw line, brow ridge, hairline, wrinkles, broad shoulders, etc. are going to magically transform with a few hormone shots and a mascara wand.
Liberal feminism: the most shallow feminism ever by [deleted] in GenderCritical
Liberal feminism can also be straight up selfish: is me me me me me me. "I want MY equal pay, I want MY abortion when I need one, I want to be able to file a complaint when I'VE been harassed.... and as long as I can count on those things for me, personally, I'm not going to worry about the women who will never be paid fairly, will be forced to give birth, and are harassed/raped without recourse."
Their efforts end with securing their individual comfort, not liberating women from sex-based oppression. They have zero empathy for women without their advantages, and no understanding of what their own lives would be like as females were they born in less privileged circumstances.

Imagine a future with someone who always buys into media/online soundbites and slogans without thinking for himself or doing research. It would drive me crazy.
If your husband was disabled and was passionate about an issue hurting disabled people, how would he feel if you contradicted him without looking into the issue and then silenced him about it?
To all the men already here by bananasaft in GenderCritical
You could start a sub that is more about general trans lobby criticism? It seems like there is a massive wave of people dying to discuss this and ally together, and I'm all for that. You might even get censored/hassled less if it's seen as a general population sub and not a women's sub. I would definitely post there. But at the same time, women need a place of our own.
Men have plenty of forums to enter conversations with women. Why can't we have one that's just for women? Why must men insert themselves into every single women's space?
I think it was fine the way it was before - men could post and comment and they did. But they were encouraged to go to GC Men or the GC Debate sub. Maybe what we really need is a specifically radfem GC sub and then a general GC sub for everyone. I recognize that lots of people are obsessed with this topic who aren't on board with radfem politics.

learn from the experience they have just had
You make it sound like GC deserved to be kicked off Reddit. We followed their rules, the mods were exceptional in deleting dehumanizing content, and still got banned. Sounds like the only lesson to be learned is that men will try to silence women no matter what - not "be nicer to men."
I am not a radical feminist, but WTF reddit? by [deleted] in GenderCritical

I realize humanity has never been great about being able to cordially discuss contentious topics. But it's gotten so much worse in recent years. It's just incredible to see "progressives" scream about fighting fascism and then turn around and use these tactics. It may be just a corner of the Left that's turning totalitarian, but they're the ones successfully influencing the media, government and business.
It's a terrible feeling to be politically homeless.
Proof that Reddit's banwave was extremely misogynistic by [deleted] in GenderCritical
[–]Veneficca 65 insightful - 3 fun65 insightful - 2 fun66 insightful - 2 fun66 insightful - 3 fun - 2 years ago (0 children)
Women are under attack. This is a hostile backlash affecting all women and it's deployed in insidious, often technological ways. Right now, as so many of us are focused on COVID-19, unemployment, the election, BLM, it's the perfect time to erase our rights because the media barely acknowledges it.
There's so little awareness of this happening to women as a class. Few people would discuss your friend's persecution as a strategy men use against women to punish, shame and control them; they'd see it as an individual issue and somehow blame her for it. Women ask to retain single-sex spaces and we're hateful bigots; men torment a woman with non-consenting public nudes and people shrug it off.

Weird, because GC had men comment who would also regularly comment on "male subs" as well as trans subs. I'm curious what made you special that you would be preemptively banned.
Of course, you also erroneously said that GC banned all men, so I'm guessing you're a bit confused.
