can we bring that thing from tumblr of calling TERFs FARTs
Feminist Appropriating Reactionary Transphobe
@scottishwobbly You're a bit late to that party. That was reposted here a while ago.
@Jo rip, just joined
@scottishwobbly problem is, that denies that there's lots of transphobic feminist history. TERFs aren't appropriating feminism, they're using it to fuel their own ends. sure, it's funny, but I've seen trans people rolling their eyes because so what if we change the language? we need to confront the roots of the issue
@scottishwobbly @lesbian yeah I get that. I guess it's just that I personally don't want to make fun of terfs, I want to take them seriously, because they're violent. making fun of them on the Internet isn't going to do anything, and it feels like a lot of people don't take it seriously haha. like. feel free to make fun of terfs as long as ur also vocal about the violence and death they cause trans ppl every day ✌️✌️
@kyleparker I can see that and it's important not to forget or shut up about the serious violence & damage they cause the LGBT community, but I also think there's something in making TERFs, like fascists, feel like their vitriol will cause them to be ostracised and ridiculed
@scottishwobbly I have never heard of this term. Careful though, there are some .. strong willed .. people here, where if you try to bring up legitimate concerns biological women have (for example: sports or giving HRT or puberty blockers to kids), they will mob and rail against you and claim there are "no legitimate concerts about someone's genitals." Then they'll go and ban your entire instance.
