This tag on Twitter has been around a while but I just found out about it last night. I think it’s important that women who were born and raised as ‘feminine’ have a tag to express the oppression we live in for being born into the sex class female.
Two days ago I expressed to some dude on Youtube why TERF was a misogynist slur and once again got called it, which again proves my point that TERF really means ‘shut up woman.’
Well I won’t shut up.
When men start appropriating ‘TERF’ to try and silence women who speak up about male violence then your acronym isn’t effective. He also called me a ‘nazi’ which I just laughed at because it was the perfect irony.
Is it really so difficult to imagine that females who are raised as the feminine gender from hour 1 of their birth are totally different than a male who either transitions after puberty or a male who, at the age of 30, puts on lipstick and a dress and is to henceforth called a woman?
Why is gender such a hard fucking concept to understand? There’s this thing called socialization and fuck, it works, every day, every hour, babies are born into sex classes and then based on their sex are raised into 2 separate and opposing gender categories.
I asked this google scholar if it was true that girls really do prefer pink to every other fucking colour? I also asked if girls truly do hate STEM because our lady brains just can’t handle it.
He never answered the question of course because that would mean admitting gender. Instead he just said I was like a nazi and then resumed calling me a TERF.
Just another day in neo-liberal la-la land where classes of people don’t exist and oppression is just an individual matter where every individual feminist gets to decide what feminism entails, where prostitution is seen as ‘liberating women from male oppression.’
I can’t scream loud enough.
