so many things to question about this sponsored post, but i’m going to start with the “graphic design” tag
Insert ad for Psychopathia Sexualis. It was controversially popular in psychiatry for a few years in the late 1800’s, I’ve seen referenced on actual patient files a few times. It eventually fell out of favor, on account of many of his theories on sexual deviance being irrelevant and hilarious.
"A Medico-Legal Study…"
"of Sexual Insanity"
weird it’s almost like killing people is disturbing or shameful in some way
I’ve heard exclusionary, eradicating, and erasing, and you know what? Same difference.
By excluding trans women from feminism, one is effectively eradicating them. By saying “I don’t care about the violence you face as a trans woman” either through disbelief or ignoring their situation, one becomes part of the system that perpetuates that violence. By saying trans women are “really men,” that’s actively harmful. By saying trans women’s issues are irrelevant to feminism, that’s actively harmful. Whether by their own hand or someone else’s, trans people in general and trans women in particular face an amount of violence that we can’t exclude from the issues of the feminist movement, can’t erase from the feminist movement, without the result being effectively eradicating them.
It is hateful to tell trans women that they aren’t women. It’s just as bad as telling lesbians we just need a good dicking or telling women to get back in the kitchen. Bigotry is bigotry. I’m sure your friends have some other wonderful qualities, but that particular one is incredibly ugly and don’t make excuses for it.
so wait on the one hand they’re saying the gender is a social construct, but on the other hand they’re saying trans women are “really” men? sure, sounds legit
