Mens Rights Activists vs Radical Feminism: Two sides of the same coin

Like most social media sites, my Twitter is a good way to meet wonderful people and a great way to witness the depth of utter delusion spewed forth by angry individuals with an axe to grind. Dear readers, I’m talking about Mens Rights Activists and Radical Feminists – two groups constantly at war with each other, who blame each other for the problems of the world. Two groups of people who have an inability to see that they’re aren’t the solution to the worlds problems, they are in part a large cause of them.

In defense of the Cotton Ceiling

Everyone knows as a cisgendered lesbian, I don’t have trans experience which is why I love hearing from friends who happen to be trans about their perspectives on things. I’ve been thinking quite a bit about the theory around the Cotton Ceiling and the obvious lies and conflations that the TERF brigade are promoting as a way to enforce their world-view and scare cisgendered lesbians.

Trigger warning: The following screenshot features transphobia, lies, appeals to emotion, scaremongering and is generally insulting to people who have common decency and decorum. Further trigger warning: Talk of genitalia and surgery.

Trans Exclusionary Radical Feminism ideology – one massive logical fail

rainbowbanner

There are several things I can’t wrap my head around in regards to Trans Exclusionary Radical Feminism. As a cisgendered lesbian, I’m never going to have the same experience a transgendered person does. My gender identity aligns with my sex assigned at birth – however just because I haven’t experienced a misalignment between those two things, doesn’t mean someone else hasn’t and just because I myself am not transgender – that doesn’t mean I can’t find the following views to be discriminatory and utterly vile.

Keep your politics out of my sexuality

I’m tweeting on Twitter as one does watching the feminist debates and radfem stupidity when I come across this article by Cathy Brennan. Cathy is a political lesbian (whatever the fuck that means) who seems to have some issues with other lesbians.

Seth MacFarlane is in the shit after his version of hosting the Oscars was not well received. Despite that and the general craziness that is Family Guy, Seth does have some redeemable qualities. Namely his position on same sex marriage and portrayal of transgender characters on Family Guy. Unfortunately his accurate portrayal of transgender characters has been missed by a large percentage of the population, indeed it took me a few seasons to actually get what the guy was unintentionally aiming for.

Radical feminism is a danger to women

20131226-120649.jpg

I’ve met some hypocrites in my time. We all know how I feel about hypocrites, especially those within the queer community and those who claim moral superiority over others. Women who call themselves prolife and advocate to make abortion illegal while at the same time get abortions themselves annoy me. But by far the most infuriating, ignorant, hypocritical community I have ever come across is the radical feminist community.

Yesterday as I was rolling around on Facebook (cause that’s how I roll…on Facebook) I came across this status from a friend of mine:

Asking two gay men if they are worried their son will grow up to be gay is as stupid as asking a heterosexual couple if they are worried their son will grow up to be straight.

The only moral bigotry is my bigotry – Queer Tumblr edition

There are some Tumblr accounts that are extremely hetereophobic.

As I’ve said time and time again that no-one, not even queers, have moral superiority over others nor are they exempt from being hypocrites.

Keeping that in mind, I present to you heterophobic Tumblr fuckery:

How to be a good straight ally

I wrote this post discussing the hypocritical crap that goes on within the queer community and provided pointers on how queers can be of more benefit to their community by treating our allies and each other with respect.
