I have ruined myself to begin with. I have left my laptop at my partners. So the couple of next posts are all being done from my phone.
How annoying do you find it when bigotry takes over a beloved culture, belief system.
I am talking about the TERFs, maybe the most stupidest bigots out of all the bigots. They’ve ruined the suffragette and witch movements.
The reason why I call them the stupidest bigots, out of the bigots is because everything they say either a) makes no sense, b) they think changing names really changes what they stand for, while giving trans people a hard time about it and c) for a couple of months they have no problem with bigoted men making a name for them. After that couple of months they ALWAYS get mad at the men.
On top, the far right aren’t even being “shadowy”, there are front and center with the transphobia. Then these same people always act “surprised” when their heroes turn out to be the Right. And that’s it all “well clearly we’re not like them, we’re the left”.
TERFs, went from TERFs to Gender Critical’s (GC’s) to now “sex realist”. I can’t begin to tell you how many times I’ve rolled my eyes.
Even when it’s women speaking out against them. They’ll keep insisting it’s men trying to silence them. Take Nottingham Council Library in the UK. They recently banned a talk by a TERF, which was a good move, since it would have been during Pride. The next day, they started a crowdfund to sue the council. Here’s the thing though: the members who banned the transphobic person are all women. Didn’t matter to the transphobes. Women are on councils these days.
That’s another thing, the TERFs are not fighting for women’s rights amongst Roe v Wade, they’re all blaming trans people! I have yet to see a transphobe actually fight for women for Roe v Wade. They keep saying really stupid things like “At least the Right know what a woman is” or the REAL classic “If we didn’t have to fight trans people, we could have been fighting to keep Roe v Wade”. Oh and that they don’t have to worry in the UK, because abortions are “free”.
Not quiet true…
- you can self-refer by contacting an abortion provider directly – the British Pregnancy Advisory Service (BPAS), MSI Reproductive Choices UK, the National Unplanned Pregnancy Advisory Service (NUPAS) or your local NHS sexual health website can tell you about eligibility and services in your area
- speak to a GP and ask for a referral to an abortion service – the GP should refer you to another doctor if he or she has any objections to abortion
- contact a sexual health clinic (sometimes called family planning or GUM (genitourinary medicine) clinics) and ask for a referral to an abortion service
In other words, you can’t just “rock up” in the UK, to have an abortion. And even then, in some areas, you need to speak with Doctors before you have an abortion, for them to sign off on one.
In Australia, it depends on your state and GP. With South Australia as the most recent to decriminalise abortions, with the changes starting on 7 July. (That’s my state…yay) That 7th of July 2022. So that is really recent.
But this is what I mean by TERFs ruining everything for not just trans people, but women, men and non-binary people too! They don’t even know their OWN countries rules.
They want to “claim” suffragettes and Witches, then they need to do the work. They have done nothing so far, except ignore the majority of cis women’s speech, and raise money to sue everyone (another Right wing thing). Just because the MSM/Murdoch and Right wing media are letting them speak (while ironically saying to us all that they’re being silenced, but you know, they’re nothing like the Right). Doesn’t mean they’re speaking for other women, they just simply are not.
