Yikes, my friend. Just because someone makes an observation on intergroup dynamics doesn't make them lean one way or another. In-group bias is also well documented with you currently, and very ironically, showing out-group negativity.

Fwiw, I doubt conservatives are wondering why marginalised groups end up attacking each other rather than uniting for a common goal.

Yes, it is so pathetic of those lesbians to exclude transsexuals, so pitiful! They really only have jealousy in mind and it has absolutely nothing to do with transsexuals occupying gay dating apps and hitting on women pretending to be lesbians, while still having functional dick and balls, or participating/dominating in womens sports (check out how many lesbians are in the average soccer team), including unwanted body contact.

Do you really not grasp the context in which that statement was made. Or do you possess the ability to see context and just really don't want to admit you've been complicit in allowing a bunch of people following the same pattern as Nazi's in 1930's Germany?

In case you are wondering, the number of gender queer people who have been publicly identified as pedophiles is so small that Republican lawmakers and their propaganda news outlets don't use real cases while they pontificate on the evils of people like me. While the pedophilia in both the Catholic and Southern Baptist Churches and the organized decades long cover-up and protection of pedophiles is well documented.

May you never have to know what it is like to fear leaving your house because a group of people with a long history of abusing the law to hurt you said that your public existence is now illegal. May you never feel the pain of being denied appropriate medical care to save your life because a bunch of people who think science is evil decided they knew better than your doctors. May you never have to make the choice of where to pee in public because one door could get you killed and will cause you to spiral into depression and the other could get you arrested and branded a sex offender for... using a public bathroom.

Uh... Nice rant, but what does any of that have to do with the comment you're replying to? Remember, this is what they said:

>Just proof there's no end to tribalism, even amongst the victims of it.

They were just saying we're all susceptible to the same patterns of human behaviour, even after we've been on the very negative receiving end of it.

So I don't know what lines you're reading between but frankly your reply seems wildly out of place.


killerbee2319 t1_jd3kd85 wrote

Ok. So the original article is about a tribe that calls itself Republicans. That tribe is working hard to legalize the persecution of another tribe called transgender folks. This particular article is about passing a law to keep less than 5 people in an entire (tiny population, but still) from participating in sports events where they have no distinct advantage (as born out by the complete lack of domination in any sport except for one person who was already an elite athlete). They have also been widely passing laws that will outlaw the public existence of transgender people on the basis that dressing in a manner they deem unfit for what they've decided their gender is is inherently sexual. They have passed laws requiring transgender people to put themselves in dangerous situations. They have widely lied about transgender people being dangerous to children. They are passing laws to take away access to life-saving care that every major national and international medical professional organization supports. They are specifically allowing these same procedures to be used on cis children, and only denying them to people who they know (because they have been directly told, under oath, by experts backed up by numerous studies by medical professionals) will be more inclined to suicide. Lest you think this is a bug, not a feature, at several major Republican engagements, they have routinely and loudly applauded calls for the extermination and elimintion of transgender people (but not, they later claim, their murder).

Transgender people then complain that they are being persecuted and are yelling loudly that they don't want to be persecuted. They have taken no violent actions. They have not called publicly for the extermination of the Republican party or its underlying groups. They have not excused literal neo-nazi groups from showing up armed and shouting threats at their public events. They have not started a news network to broadcast anti-Republican propaganda. They have simply (and more loudly now) asked not to be persecuted by hatemongering politicians who can't run on a policy platform anymore.

This person then claims that tribalism exists on both sides, which unless they are fond of writing random facts without any context, would clearly imply that both sides are the same, which in the context of reality, they are not. Kindly take your sad, overdone semantic argument and be honest with yourself. Neither of you care one whit about fairness or truth or justice or peace. You simply want quiet and order, and you are willing to sacrifice others to get it. I'm sorry you lack the ability to contextualize dog whistles. I'm glad you don't have to understand them on a visceral level because it is a vital survival skill, though.

Maybe next time, hear what someone else says, and consider why they are saying it before assuming I spend too much time online. I probably do, but then, as the majority of my state is happy face state sponsored persecution, going outside my house requires quite a bit of effort. Individually, most people couldn't care less, but all it takes is one person willing to yell loudly, and it becomes a crowd, and crowds can be cruel, heartless, and dangerous things.

YouAreOnRedditNow t1_jd3pz0t wrote

I think you are reading way too much into small comments. Just because you are part of a marginalized group (even one currently under attack) doesn't mean human nature no longer applies to you. That's the whole point, here, full stop.

Nobody is saying you're wrong about the horrible direction the Republican party is leading their voters, just that tribalism (the innate human behaviour of forming an in-group) is a pervasive concept that could help explain why and how we act the way we act. That's it - tribalism is not even necessarily a bad thing, in general, and I'm certainly not defending the Republican party.

Also, it was a different Redditor that said you spend too much time online, not me. This latching on to small, inoffensive comments as though they are attacks directed at you does kind of make me think they may be right, though.


killerbee2319 t1_jd4eftr wrote

First and foremost: if you don't want to get called out for saying things that bigots and centrists who support them say, then don't say them.

Secondly, you specifically went out of your way to comment about how I am the same as my oppressor... what exactly was your intention. Do you just state random facts at times? Do you not recognize how being equated with people who have publicly and frequently called for the extermination of people like you, and side with groups who think the Nazi's didn't go far enough might be offensive to someone?

Aghhhh! Again, this is not at all the intent behind my replies. You are taking them in a very personal way AND confusing me with other redditors, when all I'm saying is:

>You are also a human

The end! Nobody is infallible. My whole intention is that YOU shouldn't consider yourself completely different from any group of people, because you will always have the common denominator of being human. YOU are just as much of a human as Obama, Ghandi, Oprah, Cher, Putin, Trump, and Napoleon goddamn Bonaparte. You can think you're not, but you would be wrong.

Put yourself on the highest pedestal you want, project whatever awfulness onto me you want, but this aggressive, debate-anyone-who-might-be-an-enemy approach of yours is only going to push people away.

I'm saying you should be reasonable and recognize your own bias, you're saying I agree with bigots/nazis, but somehow you're the offended one in all this? That fucked up attitude is going to undermine anything positive you're trying to accomplish.


killerbee2319 t1_jd4rj19 wrote

Do you seriously not see how the context of this conversation, in which most of the comments surrounding the debate over whether or not I should be treated like a human, the comment that I am human, just like my oppressor could easily be construed as an insult or minimiztion of the situation?

If you are an ally, I beg you to listen. I don't need useless statements of facts that I am the same as my oppressor. That is not being a good ally. If my joke was about exterminating them or denying them the right to deal with a medical issue, then by all means, tell me I've gone too far.

But we don't need allies who back away from supporting us because we made a joke about the number of proven pedophiles in the groups accusing us of being pedophiles. Or people who dont listen when we tell them why what they just said was offensive. If that puts you off, how are you going to respond when things get really hard? This isn't a game anymore. I have to sell my house next month because I can't take the risk that the state I've lived in their while life won't come after me and my kid. I am afraid. There are open calls for genocide, that they claim aren't open calls for genocide, but what do you call an hour long screed about exterminating and eliminating people?


YouAreOnRedditNow t1_jd4znjf wrote

You know what, it feels like I say something simple and rational, and then you reply like you're replying to five different people at once. You're putting things other people have said onto me so you can debate those things. But I don't agree with it, you just seem to think I do because I pointed out that what the original comment said was not incorrect.

I can't support positions that I don't agree with, so the more of those you project onto me, the less I want to talk to you because I feel like I'm just "the enemy" to you, even though if we met in real life you'd see just how wrong that assumption is.


The original comment, from my understanding, was an observation about how Lesbian groups, despite the adversity they have faced, are still forcing that same adversity onto trans groups. This is a facet of human behaviour wherein we seek to identify with groups of people like ourselves, and UNFORTUNATELY will also lash out at people not in the group, and not always for logical reasons. It's sad, and not a good thing, but you replied as if to say that it was completely made up and not relevant, when --> addressing that behaviour is how we can start to face these problems <--

So rather than accept the admittedly often uncomfortable ambiguity of living in a messy universe, they blame the deceiver (or Deceiver), exclude them, ostracize them, and then argue they don't really exist

Roe vs Wade was overturned not even a year ago. Girls are being banned from talking about periods in school. Women's rights aren't "solved," cis women are actively under attack. I don't see the harm in women focusing on women's issues that are still under attack.

Trans people marched for abortion rights, marched during the Women’s Marches and dominated Twitter posts calling out sexual violence, harassment and misogyny.

They also didn’t tweet about prominent cases where women were raped by male guards and police officers but instead invented trans boogeymen to take the blame.

Apophthegmata t1_jd1o0dw wrote

  1. This article is about a single author who does not self-identify as a TERF. Nowhere does it raise the claim that no one self identifies as a TERF. The term only even appears twice, once in the first paragraph and once in the last paragraph

  2. The author does identify as a "radical feminist," (the RF of TERF) and merely states that they do not identify as trans exclusionary.

Importantly, they don't identify as cis, despite being a man who is biologically male and "identifies as having an XY chromosome." - which is what the term cis describes. The reason they reject this nomenclature is because they feel that a man identifying as male can only do so by adopting patriarchal attitudes about what masculinity is, and Feminism as a movement ought to be post-gender.

  1. And TERF is a pretty weird-ass thing to identify as. It's a description of a person based upon the effects of their actions. People are welcome to disagree with that description - this person appears to do so - but whether or not you identify as a TERF does not determine whether you are, or are not, a TERF. Lots of characteristics are socially conferred upon individuals, like "being cool" or "being mean." Whether you are or are not cool is not up to you. It's up to literally everyone else. It isn't up to you whether or not you are respecting other people or their boundaries. It's up to them.

If everyone you know says that you aren't cool, you aren't, no matter how much you protest. Unlike "being cool," trans exclusionary politics has some very specific and objectively verifiable measures. "Are trans women women?" is a fairly easy litmus. And the rejection of the question with "identifying as a woman (under patriarchy) is to identify with patriarchy-determined social structures and therefore I identify as an individual with XX chromosomes" - as this author seems to be doing - is frankly such bullshit.

Just because you reframe the question so that it no longer mentions trans people, that doesn't mean it doesn't, practically speaking, exclude trans people, or put their civil and human rights in jeopardy.

  1. This article lays out a very vague defense about how some unspecified other people like to criticize the author on unspecified points regarding policies and the author does not even state where they fall on a number of policy positions regarding trans people.

One might expect, in an article trying to argue that the author is not a TERF, an explanation of how the author's stances and actions don't in fact exclude trans people.

We don't get that. Instead we get a very "just asking questions" vibe and a list of topics that the author thinks is worthy of concern like bathroom use, gendered athletics, "publicly funded surgical removal of healthy tissue," etc. And then a vague and general complaint about how unspecified other people sometimes treat the author's viewpoints as not worthy of discussion or consideration.

Racists don't need to identify as racist to be one. And if I read a comment that said "No-one self-identifies as racist" I'd be inclined to agree, given the morally-laden weight of the accusation. For the same reason they don't identify as xenophobic; they disagree with the terminology, especially the superficial characteristics of the word (I'm not afraid of immigrants), not the behavior which the term describes.

But if that comment, to support the fact that no-one identifies as racist, linked an article about how one specific individual doesn't self-identify as racist for specific personal reasons, and then used that time not to argue why their position isn't racist, but instead to complain about how other people are using words inaccurately....well, I wouldn't take that poster very seriously either.

In any case, this publication doesn't appear to be an unbiased source. The founder and editor of Feminist Current "self-identifies" as exiled in Mexico , a move from Canada to what she describes as a move to "freer pastures" (Mexico!) in...wait for it... 2021.

The actual author, Robert Jenson, doesn't appear to be a TERF in the way that people mean it when they describe someone like Rowling as a TERF. So I can understand why the author is upset.

This is like far-right conservatives getting upset when they're called Nazis because there were actual Nazis at their rallies despite they fact that they don't, personally, identify as a Nazi.

It's a problem of association.

But please don't come on Reddit and try to launder one university professor's personal beliefs on gender as if it supports the claim that TERF is a slur, or that no one identifies as a TERF.

Of course they don't. It's not a good thing to be. That doesn't mean, however, that they don't exist.

biology determins sex.people with penises attempting to coerce lesbians into having sex with them are called rapists.

i get accused of genocide because biological reality exists.

i don't care what people wear or what they call themselves.i'll never parrot their talking points however. and for that i'm worse than hitler.

no one's coercing anyone into anything. You seem to be parroting someone's talking points, and for someone who seems to not like being compared to Hitler your side really doesn't seem to mind standing with actual fucking neonazis


mirddes t1_jd1uqzk wrote

"my side" which side exactly is that? I don't attend marches of any sort, I'm in a room by myself standing alone.

Getting called all sorts of names for not joining your side... Smh..

No one called you any names. But if you don't want to be lumped into a particular side, check to see who is using the same arguments as you.

And yet you're parroting the same script that American conservatives have been laying out for years now, the same script which got recently leaked via 2500 emails to show how manufactured your talking points are.

you're on a real save-the-bigots campaign about this story aren't you? you feel any better yet about the fact that that post on r/lgbt got upvoted to the ionosphere, on account of the fact that the vast majority of queer people want nothing to do with those who seek to divide, conquer and destroy us?

looks like story this touched a nerve, huh! you transphobes fuck up, we're gonna call you on it. the devil's in the details.

Typical bigoted dogwhistle rhetoric.

Rape is nonconsensual intercourse... It does not require a penis.

Biological reality is not binary, and biology has little to do with transphobia, aside from lizard brain fear response.

lesbians who have sex with penises are actually bisexuals, not lesbians.

It's not about the views you hold. It's what people do with said views. Someone can not like same-sex marriage all they want but if they use that as an excuse to deny the right to other people then that's it deserves push back.

I think you have found out that social media does not attract the sort of demographic that can handle nuanced views. Just remember in the future - J K Rowling wants to personally murder all trans people - and you’ll be more poplar. lol


mirddes t1_jd254x9 wrote

lmfao ikr

i feel like lgbt+ acceptance is at an all time high in the western world, something i personally applaud, and they're screaming genocide. because of nuanced perspectives.

personally i like the idea of replacing all the toilet signs with "Stalls" and "Stalls+Urinals" but i also understand most women don't feel that way.
clear icononography with respect to availability of toilets to the uninitiated and illiterate is also important, symbols are often far more useful than words.

to all people reading this comment
(those are love hearts)

i respect almost everyone's right to exist, some of the worse criminal offenders should be shot on sight.

love, peace, understanding and mutual respect are the cornerstones of positive interactions.

FemmeOutsideSociety t1_jd1nfl4 wrote

Sexual orientation does mean something. Lesbians are female homosexuals and deserve their own organization instead of being lumped in with everyone else and expected to cater to dick, which is what makes them "transphobic" in your eyes. Misogyny under a progressive label. Homophobia disguised as "gender identity/trans rights". Same as it ever was.


AshamedPollution5660 t1_jd2mc6y wrote

You're not wrong, you're just talking to the wrong people. Good to see you acknowledge that Trans is an attack on women's only spaces. To be accepted in the rainbow coalition, you have to promote men as the victims, not the woman they oppress.

The article is a LOT less interesting than the headline.

Dextero_Explosion t1_jczrmw8 wrote

They probably misread the headline, like I did the first time. I originally thought it said, "Trans-exclusionary lesbian aliens from the planet Pluto literally explode into tiny pieces."

I mean, Pluto isn't even a planet anymore...

Don't you know, according to the right you're being homophobic or transphobic if you call out a homosexual or trans person for having shit ideals, even if no where in your criticism is any issue with the person's sexuality. But it's not homophobic or transphobic to try and deny familial rights to homosexuals and trans men and women who want to marry and start families.


mirddes t1_jd29iw4 wrote

i'm confused by everything you just said except the last sentence. denying familial rights for any reason is fucked up.

Yes, you're confused because you're deliberately trying to be. What I said was straightforward.

apparently not joining the latest cult is genocide.


DeaDGoDXIV t1_jd2ux6n wrote

TL;DR if you're LGBT the right will only defend you if you're holding anti LGBT views, and even then only to support their own anti LGBT stance

Now who's not making sense? Fun Fact: the right only likes LGBT folk when we have ideals that align with theirs, and even then won't hesitate to throw us under the bus as sacrifice. The right loved that disgusting pervert Milo Y. (I don't know or care how to spell his last name) because he was a gay man that loudly championed against equality. We kept calling him out for being a disgusting perv and the right called us homophobic, then they found out he defended pederasty and they couldn't be like "Milo who? We never liked that f..." fast enough


mirddes t1_jd1t1xa wrote

transactivists are among the most homophobic and hetrophobic people on the internet, and according to statistics 50% of transfolk don't even want to date transfolk.

denying a lesbian's sexual orientation because it doesn't align with your gender identity is homophobic.

men who do it are called pigs
transwomen who do it are still pigs.
