The one reason we all can't speak our minds is cancel culture. Cancel culture was created by so-called progressive democrats. I've only ever voted Democrat in my life, but I just can't support that anymore. Don't downvote till you've read please. by 100_percent_truth in GenderCritical

I'm a walkaway. I cannot possibly vote for Biden because Democrats in control will criminalize criticism of the transgender movement and completely destroy all sex-based protections. Never mind all the creepy videos of Biden pawing at little girls over the years. And I don't get these comments saying that Biden will stop coronavirus. How? No way he can.
First, the Democrats completely jumped the shark when they tried to make everyone else stay home while encouraging protests during a pandemic. I was in favor of initial protests...and then what happened? They turned into BLACK TRANS LIVES MATTER protests. Please don't tell me that somehow black trans lives are so critical that we need to risk everyone's lives during a pandemic to protest NOW about it. So now Democrats in public health are flat-out lying and trying to pretend like protests didn't help spread the virus while meanwhile we were told not to go to fourth of July events even with masks and social distancing.
We have science deniers on both sides. Infuriating!
If you think Biden will win in a landslide you just need to go peruse the Walkaway group on Facebook and look at how many people are super furious at these double standards. I don't think Biden will win, actually.
I'm not sure if I can vote for Trump. But I'm done with the Democrats. As far as abortion goes, I don't think that's going to be removed with the recent Supreme Court decision blocking the anti-abortion law...even with more conservatives on the bench...as they are now more libertarian and hands off it seems.

Agree, and the idea that Joe Biden can singlehandedly stop coronavirus at this point is wishful thinking at best. Most people don't want to be locked down, period, and I think that goes beyond right vs. left. In fact, a Democrat might make things worse by enacting more draconian national lockdowns that would just lead to a full out rebellion.

It makes me angry that a biological female would go through the process of becoming pregnant and hate women SO MUCH that she would deny being a mother. It's sickening. It's misogyny.

Except, you aren't having volunteers come and cut your hair because you are so fragile you are at risk of suicide over it.

While they still mention "mothers" on some old website content...their new curriculum has replaced the word "mother" with "birther" across the board. Here are some snippets from their syllabus:
"Gender Diversity and Caring for all Birthers. Not all birthing parents identify as female. Babies coming into the world will experience a range of gender identification and expression as they grow up. Caring for new babies begins with caring for their parents from the beginning. Transgender and Genderqueer parents need loving caregivers to help buffer the dramatic challenges experienced on a daily basis by this growing community. Respecting and honoring the expansive spectrum of Gender Identity and finding ways to help all families feel supported and cared for."
Eventually they'll just call women numbers to make it even less gendered by russkayacabbage in GenderCritical

I was in an Ayurveda postpartum class where they are using the term "birther" to describe mothers. I have already complained but was not taken seriously...and I'm dropping the class. I'll post this link separately as a topic, as well, but we need to start complaining to these women-owned companies that are using this type of language - if you have a moment, send them an email - https://sacredwindowstudies.com/

I saw this link in a Facebook group. The woman who posted it was introducing herself and had to make a big deal about identifying as "transmasculine" (whatever that means). The level of internal misogyny is frightening. God forbid someone who identifies as male or non-binary temporarily has to deal with long hair...as if such a thing is inherently feminine. I do feel sorry for these women - they must have experienced some sort of major trauma to be triggered over such little things, but I also feel the narcissism is way off the charts.
