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.
