So, I've waded through the Evangelical Alliance's new pastoral "guidelines" for interacting with trans people (ughh, the things I do to expose #transphobic #ciswits to the world), and let's just say it's time to tear this particular sh*t-bag a new hole.

So, straight off the bat, first page of text, the use of #language is . . . well, yeah, see for yourself:

"It is important to remember that transgender is not simply an issue to be debated;" - p5, #Transformed

*sigh*

When such language gets reinforced by insisting...

So, the other thread I was talking about at the beginning of the week and, sadly not about Vagrant Story or Farscape.

One of the questions I see pop-up again and again is why do TE*Fs (note the wildcard placement, there's nothing radical about these #Fuckwits) have such...

hatred for #trans #people?

Well, if we step back a little and change how we look at the patterns of behaviour, and look at those behaviours in a different paradigm, one more associated with personal relationships, TE*F behaviour and attitudes have a depressingly familiar...

So.

Time for something a little different, and an idea I’ve been toying with—a look at how #transphobes try to frame their narrative within a claim that they are only “concerned” about trans people existing.

I think it’s safe to say that every trans person in the...

community who isn’t a #transphobic arserag can now spot whenever the usual #hate groups and individuals deploy their dog-whistles to denigrate trans people, especially trans women, but it is all too easy to forget that for the average cis person with no experience of...

this the comments and phrases that #transphobes come out with can come across as bizarre, or non-sequiturs, or even occasionally even reasonable. That person, because they have no experience of this, doesn’t see those comments as the attacks they are, and so can’t...

Things which are not #transphobic, despite TRAs shouting otherwise:

- safeguarding children and vulnerable adults
- homosexuality
- heterosexuality
- women’s rights
- science
- evidence-based healthcare
- asking questions
- women saying ‘no’ to men
Sex, race, religion, sexual orientation: all are protected characteristics under the Equality Act 2010. Gender identity is not. Gender reassignment is not the winning card in a game of top trumps. Every protected characteristic must be considered when changing policy or law.
Women, men, genuine sufferers of gender dysphoria: Your rights, safety, privacy and dignity and those of your children and elderly parents are under threat by a bunch of self-entitled men yelling ‘transphobe’ at you. You are allowed to say no.

Ah, the anti-trans crowd are desperately trying to get #ROGD traction and legitimacy by trying to get it trending on Twitter.

So let's break it down.

#ROGD is pseudo-scientific bunkum that has less credibility than the flat earth theory.

Thanks for coming to my TED talk.

1/n
But in all seriousness, #ROGD is nothing more than the #transphobic denial of reality, and an attempt to explain away a phenomenon that has parallels running throughout history and is already well understood.

See, here's the thing. As the results of the UK LGBT Survey...

showed, trans ppl in the UK still face horrific levels of abuse and discrimination in society. And, as with any marginalised group in society that faces that level of threat to their safety and health, anybody who wants to come out as being trans has to make a calculation...

@SurvivorsnetBtn @RASASC_London @survivorstrust @Danvers07943910 @ObjectUK @BrightonSurvivorsNET “In the light of a highly disturbing increase of #transphobia locally & nationally…” IF everything anybody says or does is #transphobia, of course you can say it is rising. Any reputable statistics?
@SurvivorsnetBtn @RASASC_London @survivorstrust @Danvers07943910 @ObjectUK “…so the date @Womans_Place_UK event feels like a concerted effort to make #trans ppl, & particularly #transwomen, feel #intimidated and #invalidated” Is it the position of SN that the sensitivities of #transwomen mean that #democracy should be suspended any time they say so?

.Every day in twitterverse I watch straight young white people who identify as "progressive" demean and diminish the lives of the marginalized & insist that WE need to recognize that "economic security" is the #1 issue all liberals need to focus on which will then solve all. (1)
.I watch them speak from their lofty privilege not realizing that they are standing on a platform built by the very people they demean. Their lack of gratitude for the work of these before them blows my mind. Their robotic devotion to an establishment man with minimal (2)
.accomplishments in his career is staggering. What saves me from despair is the ongoing work of POC and LGBTQ activists and allies who continue to engage the #racist & #homophobic #misogynist #transphobic "sleeping" people. Huge credit to all of you doing this work (3)

So, I mentioned yesterday that it felt like the so-called "feminists" on everybody's least favourite board were, in the terms of the analogy, working themselves up to another tantrum spiral.

Turns out I was right. And with things like this I hate being right, but, well, at least it's even more exposure about what really goes on at the so-called "Feminism Chat" board on @MumsnetTowers #mumsnet

So, first of all, what am I talking about when I say 'tantrum spiral'.

@MumsnetTowers so-called "feminists" have a distinct posting pattern of late.

i) Things start to slump on the board, and they lose a few more posters.
ii) To try and make the board look more...
