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.

Pride March! Enjoy!

Today is a day where the LGBTQIA get to stand with Pride, after literal centuries of abuse, harassment and murder…Oh wait, that’s still happening.

Anyway, today, mainly in the UK. Lots of Marches will be taking place, virtually and in real life too!

Gay pride or LGBT pride is the promotion of the self-affirmation, dignity, equality, and increased visibility of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people as a social group. Pride, as opposed to shame and social stigma, is the predominant outlook that bolsters most LGBT rights movements.

TERFs and Homophobes going to be coming up with all sorts of theories today. Enjoy #PRIDE and kick the TERDs out! The whole point of Pride is too stand up against the bigotry that the LGBTQIA community have experienced for literal centuries. When people attack one “letter” they are attacking all the letters…and oh my god, I really wish bigots would stop whining!

CELEBRATE #LGBTQIA!!!

What can you do during Pride Month?

So, like a lot of others in the world. Some places are starting to loosen up restrictions. Which means YAY and also NAY for some.

Now, if you’re like me. When my state first had it’s restrictions loosened, I really struggled to head out. When I did, I couldn’t be quiet, but my energy was depleted really quickly.

So, Lolsys Library, what can we do if we want to celebrate Pride, but don’t really want to go out? Or you’re not ready to head yet and PAR-TAY! What can you do?

There are plenty of options!

  • Tune into any virtual Pride events and stream!
  • While you’re streaming, why not make some rainbow treats! – Delish cooking
  • Why not listen to some LGBT friendly podcasts?!
  • Borrow, or even better, buy books. That are about the LGBTQIA life, written by LGBTQIA authors.
  • Support LGBT Pride Businesses.
  • Some suggestions have been to find a LGBTQIA colouring book. I think it’s fine though with any colouring in book. Especially if you have colouring in books, that are just patterns. I have a few that are “dream animals” type patterns. However, clearly during this month, specific LGBT colouring in books would be preferable. – Coloring Book Addict (Pride LGBTQ+ Coloring Books)
  • Writing about colouring in…Why not do some LGBT friendly art!
  • When you go to shops, wear those rainbows and rainbows colours!

Thank you to the trans community <3

I just wanted to say a big thank to the trans community. I wanted to say thank you in more than whatever Twitters characters number is.

I do have trans friends/family/family friends. My grans Uncle (he might have even been her Grans Uncle), was found beaten to death in a ditch, wearing a skirt/dress. The only photo we have of him, is in a skirt. So needless to say, I have trans people in my blood, quiet literally.

However, I am still white and I am still cis. While I have a lot of trans in my life. because myself and my family, just accept people for their heart, who they are, rather than for their bodies. I don’t actually know that much about being trans. I’ve never actually had a conversation with a trans person about being trans.

Thanks to Twitter, it’s happening all the time now, and I have learnt a LOT! I wouldn’t have learnt that without the beautiful LGBTQIA community either! It’s like I’ve always been saying, it’s okay to not understand something. What isn’t okay to talk about something like you do know what you’re talking about.
