I’m not a liberal, I’m a leftist. Although I’m also deeply anti-authoritarian and while democracy is a highly imperfect system, it’s still the best option we have, and a Read more

A Twitter thread by @hatpinwoman

The power dynamics of self-identification, of who gets to self identity and how, are interesting for what they reveal about our society. The only people sufficiently able to construct Read more

A Twitter thread by @radicalhag

If TRAs wanted rights, facilities, social acceptance for trans people, they’d have acknowledged the conflict and worked something out years ago.

They don’t. They want to colonise women. Don’t Read more

A Twitter thread by @radicalhag

I’ve had a rather disturbing epiphany after the complete patriarchal circle-jerk that #IWD2020 turned into. The TRAs are right. Trans women are women, woman is an identity, and if Read more

Right. I’ve been thinking about a prominent transactivist rogues’ gallery for a while, and this has spurred me into action.

This is why freedom of speech matters. I have no doubt whatsoever that women have the moral high ground in the trans debate; there’s *no* ethical basis for removing Read more

A Twitter thread by @radicalhag

No, actually language which deprives women of a name for our class of *person* results in exactly the reduction to body parts that you claim to be against. We’re Read more

A Twitter thread by @radicalhag

I’m really tired of the knee-jerk assumption that women standing up for our rights is “anti-trans”. We analyse gender identity ideology as being harmful to women, and where it Read more
