All in favor

Oh yes, it’s all about the waves.

Meaning, presumably, that “second wave” feminists (you know, the old stupid out of date washed up wrong boring ones) are all opposed to trans rights.

But what “rights” are we talking about?

It matters, because the gender critical feminists I know are not opposed to trans rights, meaning, the human rights that all people have. What we’re opposed to is the new version of “rights” that includes a mythical right to have one’s personal self-definitions, no matter how counter-factual, accepted and endorsed and “validated” by … Read the rest

Rebranding and its discontents

Rebranding: the conversation.

But they weren’t excluding people. There’s no need to name every subset … Read the rest

We decided to take out the word “women”

Jan 8th, 2020 11:50 am | By

Oh has it indeed.

What could be more “inclusive” than removing women from everything?

From the (sorry) Daily Mail article:

A gynaecological health charity has taken the step to remove ‘women’ from its brand name in a bid to be more inclusive of transgender men and non-binary people and  ‘create an awareness of barriers for others’.

Because it’s women, you see. Women are not allowed to create awareness of barriers for women: that … Read the rest

Guest post: Read the methods first

Dec 27th, 2019 3:06 pm | By

Originally a comment by Claire on Researchers found.

I can’t access the paper because it’s behind a paywall and I’m not at work. The appendix has the methods and detailed description of how they collected the data and that’s all I really care about. I always read the methods first. If I think the methods are garbage then the paper is garbage and I can devote my valuable time to something else.

PNAS is a good journal and I’m a little shocked that the paper was published. Statistically, this paper is flawed in many ways. Firstly, none of the methods adjusted for confounders. Confounders are elements that you have not accounted for in a study that may be coincidentally … Read the rest

Behaviour like this is not acceptable

Oct 16th, 2019 11:51 am | By

The Telegraph has more on the “women=adult human females” crime wave in Oxford:

Some of the stickers, which have been dotted around the city centre, state: “Woman: noun. Adult human female” and “Women don’t have penises”.

Thames Valley Police has announced that those responsible could be charged with a public order offence and has appealed for witnesses.

It said: “Officers are investigating a large number of offensive stickers that have been placed across Oxford city centre containing transphobic comments.”

Who says they’re “transphobic”? How does Thames Valley Police know they’re “transphobic”? How can it be “transphobic” to state a humdrum fact or definition? Why does Thames Valley Police even call them “offensive”? What if women find it “offensive” to … Read the rest

More like an addiction than an orientation or identity

Sep 10th, 2019 8:06 am | By

Oof. An eye-opening thread that makes sense of a lot that seems baffling. Author is Lara Adams-Miller @LaraAdamsMille1.

Something you should realize about autogynephiles: They can’t stop. AGP functions more like an addiction than an orientation or identity. “Letting out the woman within” is both a high and a release. Time passes, and, without a fresh fix, they become hostile & self-destructive.

It seems like they’re putting it on a bit when they talk about how being denied their trans identity will “literally kill” them. It makes more sense, though, if you realize that they very well may believe that. If you’ve experienced addiction, you know that feeling.

Oh. Jeez. I never thought of that. It would explain many things … Read the rest
