Minister for Women calls feminists hateful

Shannon Fentiman is a Labor member in the Queensland Legislative Assembly and the current Queensland Attorney-General and Minister for Justice, Women, and the Prevention of Domestic and Family Violence. She wrote in a public Facebook post three hours ago above a doctored photo of her wearing the “woman adult human female” badge:

Someone did this to my office recently.

I know the sticker doesn’t look like it says much, and most people will be lucky enough to be unaffected by what it says.

But for some people in our community, these stickers represent much more – they represent a movement which discriminates against them and denies their existence.

I want to be very clear – I don’t stand for these sort of views, our community doesn’t stand for these views, and Queenslanders don’t stand for these views.

I’m proud to be working with trans and gender diverse Queenslanders to ensure their lived identity matches their legal identity by reforming our birth certificate laws.

I’m proud that we’re modernising anti-discrimination laws to further protect our LGBTQIA+ community.

I’m proud to be Queensland’s Minister for Women, fighting for the rights of all Queensland women.

The work we’re doing will keep going, regardless of any stickers on my office or hateful comments on my social media.

She’s Queensland’s Minister for Women but she doesn’t know what women are. She’s Queensland’s Minister for Women but she insists that men can be women too, just by saying so. She’s Queensland’s Minister for Women but she goes out of her way to tell us that “adult human female” is not the definition of woman, and that feminist women who remind her it is are hateful and evil.
