weird it’s almost like killing people is disturbing or shameful in some way
Pretty sure it's trans exclusionary, not eradicating. TERFs come from the school of thought that gender itself should be abolished since it is used often to keep people in certain roles and to keep stereotypes alive. (I.e. That gender as a social construct causes trans people's dysphoria) Basic third wave feminism. I'm not a TERF but have friends who are, they really are not as selfish or as hateful as they are perceived to be.
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

I had started writing parodies as soon as I learned about the concept. I was regularly tormented by girls in third grade who told me I looked like a boy and was the ugliest girl in the class, so I made parodies of the songs they loved the most—everything by Tiffany and Debbie Gibson and the New Kids on the Block. Sometimes my mom would help; I’d come home and cry and then she’d ask what songs the popular girls liked and we’d sit down and write parodies.
hey what’s up oh not much with me just heard you were unwrapping some deli meats
