TERFs and GCs are MRA’s

So I got into a interesting discussion with a guy about how gender activists are the actual MRA’s because they say people have to accept people with penises as lesbians.

I’m just going to do a quick explanation of why what he was saying, was in fact, MRA “vibe”.

MRA = Men’s Rights Activists

One, throughout History there have been a lot of people complain about how they’re being forced to accept something they don’t like. White people didn’t want POC in their school. Anti-Maskers don’t like wearing masks, so and so forth. Facts are, the reason why sane people accept this and let it happen. Is because they find out in the end that having POC in school, doesn’t actually harm anyone. Wearing a mask doesn’t harm anyone.

So just because they may not have liked it, at some point you have to accept it. Especially when it becomes clear that no harm is coming to you. So too accept that some people with penises call themselves lesbians, does no harm to you. And unless you know someone’s story, then you shut up, lol.

Two, MRA’ LOVE to dictate all the time what “this” means or what “that” means. ie what a “good wife” means, what a “good woman” means. So when a man, TERF or GC say THEY get to do it. THAT’S MRA.

Thirdly, gender “activist saying to “accept” that people are allowed to call themselves whatever they want ISN’T being MRA. Because that’s giving human beings the FREEDOM to be who they are. When you are trying to dictate who someone is and isn’t, THAT’S MRA.

Fourthly, you don’t have to like something and you don’t have to date a trans person. But you also don’t get to dictate who another human being is. THAT’S MRA.

Just a note as well, not all trans people go through a medical transition, some just simply can’t afford too. Some don’t feel like they have too. Both are valid. If you, unfortunately, come across a man/male who is transphobic. You’ve probably interacting with a MRA.

Acceptance

Over the weekend there were just some things I learnt that I was just going to have to accept that it may never happen for me. Jobs, personal things, etc, etc, etc…

Don’t you just love it though when you can finally accept something and you can just 100% honestly let it go. Isn’t it a great feeling? I always find that when you do as well that’s when things start to happen for you. For example, even my now relationship I had given up on love and it was only because someone dared me to go a dating site, I would never have done it myself.

What do you think readers? Do you find when you finally accept and let things truly go, that’s when it happens?

Hard Lessons

I have a Twitter account … If you want to follow me I’m at LaurenBolton3 … I mainly it use for the Safari Drive and writing live tweets, but I retweet other things too! Craft ideas, petitions, interesting article, follow a lot of Cosplayers on there … All that stuff).

One of the people that follow on there is the delightful Chrissy Teigen (married to the legendary John Legend … Get It!) and she replied to a tweet (

It made me think because it is an interesting concept, as  the people who replied to the Tweet also gave me something to really think about (

… Seen here.

I was one of those people who wanted a group of people who I didn’t even like, to like me? It’s interesting to me, because over the last year I have really been trying to take them out and it was working and I have felt so much better. So why for so many years was I trying to get these people to just “like me”? I didn’t like them, I don’t even respect them that much. So what is with this human need to get people who don’t like us, to like us? It doesn’t even feel like a “survival” need, because how could something that makes us feel that badly, help us to continue to live? You can’t live to your full potential, if something brings you down that badly.

The thing that stays with me is I’m not like that with romantic relationships. A lot of them (except for one and there were good reasons behind that one) when they’re over, they were over. SO why did I find it so hard to let go of “friendships” that weren’t even that important to me?
