Need some sources[edit]

You can look up my claims in TERFs and misandry and TERFs and the far-right using Google as most of them are justified. I don't have time to add sources now.

AIBU to point out TERFs on Mumsnet?[edit]

There's a whole lotta TERF going down at Mumsnet, normally an uncontroversial parenting forum but somehow there's a bunch of trans haters there who now think, apparently, that the NSPCC (Britain' main child protection charity) is allowing trans people to groom children. They've gone completely off the deep end. 92.5.141.137 (talk) 08:57, 1 September 2018 (UTC)

Mumsnet is a notorious TERF snake pit. Supposedly they've started to crack down on it, but clearly it isn't going very far as of yet. EVDebs (talk) 23:02, 13 September 2018 (UTC)
I don't have a link, but I recall the founder/CEO is onside with TERFiness and defended it publicly - David Gerard (talk) 14:59, 14 September 2018 (UTC)

Veterofemminismo[edit]

This is a nice Italian term for this reacctionary approach to feminism. The origin of the term derives from the term "veterocommunista", used by the Italian New Left against the Stalinists of the PCI. I think that veterofemminism is a good name for TERF's and SWERF's.

TERF people are their own worst enemy[edit]

Rhetoric spewed by this arena drives people away from TERF's. --Rationalzombie94 (talk) 23:13, 6 December 2018 (UTC)

Well yes, it's as if they don't quite grasp how much more abhorrent their transphobia sounds to most people now than it did in the 1960s. --Yisfidri (talk) 23:42, 6 December 2018 (UTC)
People are increasingly noticing that it's literally the arguments used against gays in the 1980s, with the target changed - David Gerard (talk) 12:41, 7 December 2018 (UTC)
Makes you wonder why so many of the most vocal people speaking out against transactivists are female homosexuals. — Unsigned, by: 95.145.234.97 / talk
"Peak Trans" suggests otherwise than rhetoric spewed by this arena drives people away from TERF's.--86.144.239.196 (talk) 21:24, 20 June 2019 (UTC)

"TERFs (and SWERFs) are a tiny subset of feminism"[edit]

I see the note, and it's more of gussied up reference. But I followed the link and it's to a blog post showing a graph made by the author. I'm not sure what this graph really means aside as a way to organize schools of feminist thought, but I don't think it's an graph that accurately (or is intending to) quantifies how "big" or "small" (aka how many members subscribe to it) an ideology is. This note or source (whatever it is, I'm confused by it) isn't even talking about TERFs, it's a post on an opinion on "white feminism" and how exclusionary "mainstream" feminism is and maybe in support of cultural relativism? --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario!(Mod) 00:07, 7 February 2019 (UTC)

Since no one has replied to LGM's comment I will add that I agree, the reference does nothing to validate the claim. I don't imagine that Black feminists are distinguished from White feminists in how they regard trans issues. Or are they?Ariel31459 (talk) 20:40, 7 April 2019 (UTC)
