Talk:Trans-exclusionary radical feminism
Need some sources
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?
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. 126.96.36.199 (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)
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
- 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)
"TERFs (and SWERFs) are a tiny subset of feminism"
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, 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)
A Real Radical Feminist Perspective
This entire wikipedia article about terfs is so blatantly misoginist, incorrect, biased, was clearly not written by women, and is just plain factually inaccurate. As with all spheres of modern information/communication at the moment, women who speak out about this issue are silenced & ridiculed. For example i was called an idiot, blocked, and labeled a vandal by someone named GrammarCommie for editing this wikipedia page. Which to my knowledge is the point of wikipedia, to edit and share information, ideally accurate information and this thread is sorely lacking in accurate information and needs addition/revision.
TERF - a made up misogynist slur directed at women by men to silence women from speaking out about male violence against women, the male supremacy we live in and the subordinate status that women are forced to inhabit under men in that male supremacy. Gender is a Hierarchy not a Binary. Women are Oppressed on the basis of Sex & Biology not Feelings & Self Proclaimed Identity. Terf is the modern day equivalent of accusing a Women of being a Witch. She who is Unruly, Defiant, & Uncontrollable By Male Society, is Branded and Banished if she does not comply with Male Ideology & Rule. Modern day Queer/Trans Ideology is just the latest face & form of Male Supremacy, redefining feminism to mean centering the needs of men over women's rights, needs, feelings, and safety. Women who do not agree with Trans/Queer dogma are silenced, harassed, fired, no platformed, threatened, and subjected to emotional, verbal and physical attack. The term Terf was created to legitimize sexist anti women misogynist sentiment, speech, violence and action in liberal circles & spaces. — Unsigned, by: 188.8.131.52 / talk
