Look, Emma Watson maybe one of the most privileged women, and she may spout some tone-deaf platitudes, but she's still suffered plenty of misogyny herself. I remember reading about how when she was still a child the paparazzi used to sexualise her, how a Peodophile was caught having photoshopped her face into pictures of child porn, how she couldn't leave the house on her 18th birthday because press were lying in her front garden because taking an up-skirt picture of her had suddenly become legal. I'm not saying we shouldn't critique her wishy-washy brand of liberal feminism (and her effective stabbing in the back of JK, the woman who made her) but let's not make fun of her or pretend she hasn't suffered from sexism herself. We're only hurting ourselves at that point.

Martina Navratilova ‘signs letter supporting ban on transgender female athletes’ by Lingenfelter in GenderCritical

Writing that it is a letter aimed at banning transgender athletes from competing in sports is obfuscating the issue. The issue is men are attempting to compete in women's sports and men should not, for any reason, not even it they sincerely believe they actually are women, not even if they'll kill themselves if they don't get their way, be allowed to participate in women's sports. Men who do are cheats and nothing more.

Women who survived coronavirus angry after persistent symptoms dismissed as 'anxiety' by doctors by wicklesnarf in GenderCritical

I now know three men who've gone to the doctor, been told there is nothing wrong with them, and then made huge sacrifices to pay for an assortment of private tests to try and prove there is. One of them deferred his university studies to pay for a scan in an MRI machine. Two of them were obviously suffering from fairly severe anxiety and regular panic attacks. As far as I am aware none of the doctors ever suggested to any of them that perhaps that money spent on expensive medical tests could be better spent on therapy.

Also when my grandfather was in the final years of his life he went to the doctor once a week for all sorts of cooked up problems. My grandmother meanwhile ignored all of her symptoms before finally keeling over from stage 4 bowel cancer and appearing to die quite suddenly. None of us knew she was having any symptoms at all.

J.K. Rowling and the White Supremacist History of “Biological Sex” by Chunkeeguy in GenderCritical

[–]Sun_bear 4 insightful - 2 fun4 insightful - 1 fun5 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

They have written this about the Combahee River Collective:

The Combahee River Collective, a prominent group of Black lesbian feminists active in Boston from 1974 to 1980, strongly opposed political, moral, and medical discourses about “biological maleness” or “biological femaleness” due to these discourses’ simultaneously racist, sexist, homophobic, and classist implications and histories. In 1978, the collective wrote the famed Combahee River Collective Statement to clarify and define their political views and to offer a broad, inclusive vision for the feminist movement. In the statement, biological sex is clear target of analysis and conceptual un-doing. The Collective states, “We know that there is such a thing as racial-sexual oppression which is neither solely racial nor solely sexual.” Combahee further stresses, “we do not have the misguided notion that it is their maleness per se—i.e., their biological maleness—that makes [men] what they are. As Black women we find any type of biological determinism a particularly dangerous and reactionary basis upon which to build a politic.”

I would interpret this quote as being first about intersectionality - there are multiple interlocking oppressions. Women of colour are constrained by both sexism and racism. How does the author of this piece think sexism works if there is no biological sex hmmn?

Then there's the second bit which seems to me to be along the same likes as Simone de Beauvoir's "One is not born, but rather becomes, a woman." I am unsure if TRAs deliberately misinterpret these critiques of socialisation or if legitimately they just don't understand.

I also found this on the Wikipedia page for the collective:

" We are particularly committed to working on those struggles in which race, sex, and class are simultaneous factors in oppression."

Looks like the Combahee River collective actually did believe in biological sex, in fact it was their mission to dismantle the oppression they faced, partly because of the existence of biological sex...

I haven't seen the film you're talking about (although you've made it seem very interesting) but I agree with you regarding male analysis.

I used to hang around on film message boards years ago and I remember when the first Pirates of the Caribbean film (the one that was actually good) came out reading a man say that it was a film for everyone because boys would watch it and want to be Jack Sparrow and girls would watch it and want to sleep with Jack Sparrow. I thought that was a really odd thing to say at the time, but the more I said I really liked that film the more I kept hearing from men that it was because I wanted to sleep with either Jack Sparrow/Orlando Bloom. It was completely lost on all men that that film is one of the few action films to have a really good, brave, autonomous female character in it and teenage girls liked to empathise with her. It's also a really good story, told really well, with an iconic score and high production values. There's a lot to like there. Yet all men/boys can process is 'women like a thing, women must want to sleep with a thing'.

That even if a woman who looked like a man did exist they would still be a fucking woman?

That being said I don't like how the author of the piece keeps talking about the gender binary. I don't see how you can unify the idea of a genderless brain with the current TRA nonsense.

Excellent article. I particularly liked this bit:

But the sociological arguments are equally ridiculous. I’ve read claims that femininity and womanhood are “white supremacist” constructs imposed on Black women, as though White people introduced the world to sex-based gender norms that have appeared in societies across the globe for centuries. This line of reasoning is a dog whistle meant to illicit a Pavlovian response from sensitive, socially progressive Black women. It is meant to silence progressive Black women who are gender critical. It is also meant to “neg” woke Black women who probably know better than to seek validation from “cis” men, but struggle to recognize and repel the “kiss the ring” tone some transwomen carry towards Black women.

This strange idea that non-white cultures can't tell the difference between men and women and don't know where babies come from has always seemed like the most racist thing to me.

I was once part of a vegan group where the members started sharing videos of shocking abuse. I remember there was one with a TIM being beaten to death which the caption claimed was because of transphobia. I think the TIM-as-the-ultimate victim campaign has been very successful. Most people believe TIMs have an average life expectancy of 25, get shot at in the street for their mere existence and are likely to kill themselves from the stress at any moment. Most people can't see that TIMs are mostly privileged men demanding concessions from women.

I see where you are coming from, but I see where she is coming from too.

The first job I had, I used to walk to work through the park. There was a middle aged women who also used to walk through the park at that time too with her spaniels, who for some reason had a problem with me walking through the park on my way to work, despite the fact that she was also a single woman walking through the same bit of the same park at the same time. Everytime I would see her she would yell 'you're going to get raped!' At me, and chase me and otherwise tell me off. It would be difficult to rape someone in a busy park, in the centre of the town, in broad daylight, but there you go. But she did start getting under my skin, making me feel uncomfortable and anxious for the crime of wanting to walk to work. I don't think that kind of fear is helpful to women.

I had a similar problem with my mother who, when I was a child, graphically described how men would rape and kill me if I was ever home alone. Years ans years later, I still feel fearful being home alone even though the risk of a home invasion is negligible.

I don't think teaching women to feel fear in those situations is good. That being said there are situations in which women should feel fear that we're not taught about - if a man violates a boundary for example he should be cancelled immediately, but I feel as women we're socialised to be afraid of being out in broad daylight alone, but to give men who are obvious predators chances.

I also think the original poster should have used the example she did, it is perfectly legitimate for a woman to not want a man in her home. OP if you see this, it is not only the fear of being raped, there's a fear that men will grope or steal or make inappropriate comments that will leave you feeling unsafe in what needs to be your safe space. Also a delivery driver will then know your address.

So in conclusion, I think women are taught to be afraid of existing as an independent entity in the world, which in my opinion is wrong. That being said women should be taught to be wary of male acquaintances and associates.

What a complete load of bullshit. Women are oppressed because we are women. My understanding of oppression is that the oppressed group must have something the oppressor wants - in the case of women that's reproductive labour. If women were not the sex uniquely able to gestate, birth and nurse children, they'd be no oppression.

Now gender on the other hand, that's a social construct. There's nothing inherently masculine or feminine about skirts, maths or the colour pink and yet we gender away and strictly police each other to ensure we adhere to our categories.

I don't know if this link is going to work, but hopefully, here's a picture of Caster during his school days:

If the link doesn't work try googling his name and 'school'. You should be able to find a few pictures of him at school, in all of them he will be wearing a boys school uniform.

Caster Semenya is a man. He's a man who was raised as a man and identifies as a man. A previous GC poster had found evidence that he openly lives as a man in South Africa. He's making a mockery of women's sports.

I know that when I first heard the case the information given was highly misleading and it made you feel very sorry for Caster. The press made it out like questioning the sex of this athlete was coming from a place of racism, that Caster was being picked on because he was exceptionally talented but also very ugly (for a woman). Even now the press tries to obscure the fact he has XY chromosomes, not female reproductive system whatsoever and testes. But even if an athlete with DSD believed themselves to be female as a child, by the age of 16 they would have visited a doctor to find out why they hadn't started their periods or developed breasts. There is no 'good faith' in the case of DSD athletes, there is only cheating.

I despise the word inclusion. Society in general excludes large groups of people - many disabled people have a 'toilet leash' that stops them from going too far from their homes, many streets and facilities could not cope with a wheelchair user. That is being exclusionary. There's no reason a wheelchair user should not be able to visit my local pizza place and yet it has steps but no ramp/lift so they cannot.

When we talk about inclusivity it should mean making society function better for everyone, but it has become corrupted to essentially mean that no one is allowed to say no to the dominant group.

Let's say I want to start a knitting group, to talk about knitting, share knitting patterns, see other people's knitting and share my own knitting. Clearly in my knitting group I don't want to let in a bunch of fisherman who have never knitted in their life, want to talk about fishing and in fact find knitting quite boring. However these fisherman complain that the knitting group is excluding them and the world sides with them. People as us knitters if we can be sure that we wouldn't be in to fishing when we've never tried it and surely we can't like knitting that much anyway? The fisherman argue that it is triggering to them to hear us talk about knitting needles at the knitting group and instead declare their fishing rods are knitting needles now. It becomes exclusionary to suggest that you need two needles to knit as you only need one to do that kind of knitting where you get fish out of the water. The fishing line is now called wool to include the fisherman, who will kill themselves if not fully centred in the knitting group, but wool is now called sheep-leavings as that's really a much more accurate description of what it is. Any knitter who thinks the term sheep-leavings is actually quite unpleasant is a hateful bigot deserving of death. This would be absurd! And yet that's the exact situation we have with trans people and lesbians.

I agree with you regarding kink shaming. I have read quite a few rape cases where the victim was covered with terrible injuries and they've been dismissed because they could be part of 'consentual rough sex' which just horrifies me. You cannot consent to abuse! You cannot consent to being murdered! If a woman is covered in injuries but a rape cannot be proven then the man should at least be punished for actual bodily harm. It is not normal to want to be beaten and hurt during sex, it's suggestive of being broken. It is not normal to want to hurt someone during sex either - it seems evidence of a sadistic and cruel person to me.

I think your interpretation of what I said is correct!

To go into more depth; essentially if you look at a graph of productivity vs earnings, you will see that for around 30 years after the second world war as productivity went up, earnings did too. However around 1980 they became decoupled and now being are becoming more and more productive but their earnings have stagnated. Here's a graph that demonstrates that:

What we have is a cohort of people - millenials aren't really that young anymore - who have made HUGE investments into themselves, both in terms of time and money. The average millennial I know has spent years taking professional courses, degrees, developing soft skills and other relevant personal attributes. There's a lot of unpaid overtime that everyone is expected to do and people are expected to keep up with developments in their field on their own time. The benefit of all that extra productivity goes not to the worker though, but to the upper management.

Then not only are millennials working more for less, housing, education and transport are now vastly more expensive in real terms than ever before. (I'm writing this from a UK perspective, hence not including healthcare) I know so many people who are in their mid to late 30s still living in cheap house shares when someone with an equivalent job in their 60s owns a three bedroom semi that they bought in their mid 20s.

This is a very brief summary of why I think capitalism is not a very good system! But I think some young (35 and under) men have a tendency to misdiagnose the problem as being the fault (somehow) of women. I think the argument goes that because women entered the work force there's more competition hence lower pay, and it is very difficult to buy or even rent a house without two salaries, which is a very silly argument of course.

I do think the world is becoming more sexist, not less, and I've seen some surveys that suggest more sexist attitudes amoung younger people than older ones.

I blame porn. It used to be porn was hard to come by and seen as a bit creepy, but now the internet is awash with increasingly violent and disturbing content. Men who jack off to images of female abuse are conditioning themselves to find pleasure in violence against women.

I also blame capitalism which is failing young people en mass. Men are then wrongly attributing the blame for that to women.

What is this bigots 'deny our existence' from the TRA brigade? I don't think anyone is claiming there isn't currently a small group of men with a disproportional political influence who what to pretend to be women and gain all of women's sex based rights for themselves. If they didn't exist they'd be no reason to fight them, would there?

The logical extension of TRA thought however is that there is not a type of human that is separate and distinct from men. In fact it is them who are arguing, effectively, that women do not exist. They also are making a concerted effort to erase all language that refers to women.

I mean I know I'm preaching to the choir here, but come on! How does everyone not see this!?

I have PCOS, it's shit. I've got no idea why TIFs would want to take hormones to artificially create this problem in themselves. It seems like an example of self-harm to me. I also wonder why they can't create their own support forum and leave r/PCOS for the women who need it.

Here's a fantastic post from r/GC that explains bio-essentialism:

RESOURCES I'm seeing a lot of posts all over Reddit attempting to explain what gender critical feminists actually believe, and a lot of them are completely wrong. This is a post addressed to newcomers who are visiting this sub to figure out what gender critical feminism is all about.The first thing to get out of the way is this: no, we don't believe that you MUST have periods to be a woman. I've seen so many posts saying "JK Rowling is menopausal and doesn't have periods, so by her definition she wouldn't be a woman!" or "not every woman has a period, some women don't have uteruses!" She isn't saying that at all. Having a period is not a necessary condition for being a woman, but it is a sufficient condition. It's sufficient in the sense that if you experience menstruation then that automatically puts you in the woman category (or at the very least it puts you in the female category). But it's not it's not necessary that you must be capable of menstruation in order to be put into the woman category. In any case, what Rowling was upset about was female erasure. It is, quite frankly, deeply disturbing and insulting for many women to be called 'menstruators' or 'period havers'. This , we feel, reduces us to a biological function. The 'bloody good period' charity once referred to women as 'bleeders', and not only does this not make any sense (men can bleed too!) it is also degrading. 'Bleeders' sounds like a dehumanising slur. Notice there's a pattern here - when have you ever heard males been referred to as 'ejaculators' or 'sperm producers'? I'm going to try to debunk two other claims I've seen floating around that are just bollocks. The first is that gender critical feminists conflate sex with gender. The second is that we are biological essentialists. Both of these claims are false, and both particularly sting because a lot of gender critical feminists of the first and second wave of feminism actually railed against these concepts in the first place. So, back to basics. Sex is biological. Sex refers to the two reproductive roles - male and female. Males produce small mobile gametes, sperm. Females produce the large immobile gametes, eggs. Sex is not a social construct. It is found all across nature. Plants have sexes. Animals have sexes. Gender is a social construct, and is not the same thing as sex. This was recognised by Mary Wollstonecraft in the 18th century, but was really emphasised by the second wave. Gender is social norms of femininity and masculinity. Gender are roles, behaviours, stereotypes, and expectations placed on human beings according to their sex. Male humans are supposed to live up to masculine gender expectations. Female humans are supposed to live up to the feminine gender expectations. Boys are supposed to like violent sports, getting angry, not crying, not eating salad, the colour blue, being dominant and in control, being logical. Women are supposed to like kittens, being sensitive and empathetic, watching their weight, pink, babies, being a homemaker. Women are human females who have the feminine gender imposed on them. And men are human males who have the masculine gender imposed on them. And gender also operates as a hierarchy. Femininity is inferior to masculinity. Feminists pointed out there was nothing natural about gender. Women do not naturally want to be nothing more than baby makers, who cry and like pink glitter, who only care about adornment and home making. This is all a social construct. Gender operates as a constrictive trap, forcing women into one 'natural' lifestyle.A big project of the second wave was to point out the artificiality of gender roles, and to break women out of them. There is no one way to look like a woman. Women can wear makeup, have short hair, wear whatever they like. There should be no such thing as masculine and feminine interests - why shouldn't a man enjoy knitting? Why does that have to mean he's somehow less of a man, or a sissy? And why shouldn't a woman enjoy car racing? Why are we so obsessed with gendering everything, from clothing, to food, to hobbies, to pets, to cars? Second wave feminists established that just because someone is female doesn't mean they are, or should be, girly. Women do not naturally behave, or think, in a particular way. Gender critical feminists have always held fast to this idea that there is no necessary connection between sex and gender roles. If I tell you I have blue eyes, can you infer anything at all about what my tastes are from that information alone? What is my career? My hobbies? My interests? My behaviour? My aspirations? My overall appearance? No -of course not. That is because we don't imbue having blue eyes with any significance. Blue eyes has no connection to your personality or your cognitive capacities. Well, that's what gender critical feminists think about sex. If I tell you a person is female, that doesn't necessarily tell you anything about her hobbies or interests. At most it tells you she's a human who is very likely to experience the incidents of being female - she is likely to be capable of menstruating. She is likely to be capable of getting pregnant. Beyond those basic facts of biology, though, females are people and can have a wide range of behaviours and appearances. There is no 'right' way to be a woman. Literally the only precondition is that you be female. That's it. Female biology is different from male bioloogy, and due to us living in a sexist society is often pathologised and overlooked. For example, menstruation has been coded as 'unclean' and impure - gender stereotypes are interposed on top of natural biological functions. So what Rowling was trying to emphasise was that for women our sex is deeply important to us. It's a core part of our experience going through the world. We are stigmatised for having periods, stigmatised for going on contraception, stigmatised for abortions, stigmatised for giving birth (too many or too few babies). And so there are important political concerns that only apply to those with female bodies. Also, female bodies are often a locus of state control. The state will try to control women by controlling their bodies (see abortion legislation, forced sterilisation,) What that means is even if you accept that trans women are 'women' (whatever women means) there must still be room for a distinctive female rights movement. Some dude on the Reddit front page was given hundreds of awards for blithely saying "no one is saying sex isn't real - we are just saying that sex isn't important." With no respect, dude, it's just not your place to say that. Women are pointing out that sex IS important to them - women are dying because they are taking drugs that have only been tested on male bodies. Men can't handwave that away with claims that 'sex isn't important'. WE are telling YOU that it is. It's important. It's not bigoted for women to campaign for their sex based rights. Biological essentialism is related to all this. Biological essentialism is the view that sex roles are natural. BECAUSE I am female it is therefore natural for me to like babies, be more emotional, and to desire to go shopping. But as I already covered, this view was contested by second wave feminists. On average, women may enjoy makeup more than men. They may be more caring and nurturing, They. may be less into train and plane spotting. But none of this is natural. Women aren't born this way. There is no natural connection between women being female and women liking makeup. There's no biologically essential way for women to be. You may notice that people on Reddit just don't seem to really get what biological essentialism means. Biological essentialism has nothing to do with saying 'women have female bodies.' It's not 'essentialist' to say that women are female. That's just part of the definition of woman. Biological essentialism is the claim that because someone is a woman they have to behave or think in a particular way. In actual fact, many commenters will support trans theory using biological essentialism. One male commenter bravely attempted to define women - " a woman is someone who conforms to our societies expectations of femininity - they dress in a feminine way, think in a feminine way, have feminine interests and so on." This is pure essentialism. Gender critical feminists completely deny that there is any such thing as 'feminine' thoughts. What on earth is a 'feminine' way of thinking? If you say that women are more ditzy, creative, and less logical - isn't that just super sexist? And what's a 'feminine' interest? Are we really back to the bad old days of saying you are less of a woman if you enjoy dirt bike racing? Are you less of a man if you film makeup tutorials? On this definition I would simply fail to be a woman. I wear pants. I don't have typical feminine interests. I work in a male dominated career. I find this definition really sexist - it says that women have to think and act, and look a certain way in order to be women. they have to conform to femininity. But the definition that a woman is an adult human female is not biologically essentialist because all it tells you is that women have female bodies. That's it. Women can look and act in any way they like. To recap and clarify - gender critical feminists are against biological essentialism. And they do not think that sex and gender are the same thing!

A 'cis' person is someone who identifies as the 'gender' they were born as. I don't believe in gender and I don't identify as anything, so therefore it's not an appropriate description for me. I doubt anyone outside of the Trans-cult really 'identifies' as a gender. The correct term would just be woman, no prefix!

If you cannot debate the other side, if you have to silence them, threaten them and suppress their arguments. If you have to misrepresent their position, spread lies about them, intimidate them with physical violence. If you have to boil your own position down to simple slogans that you must chant endlessly, if questioning any facet of your position no matter how tiny is a 'cancelable' offence, if you have to pretend that any disagreement with your position is literal violence that is killing people...

Then maybe, just maybe, it's because you're not in the right.

Our society can't allow people to be wrong. It's weird, so many people claim to worship at the teat of science and yet science teaches us that knowledge is based on evidence that is constantly evolving - a theory being disproven is a good thing, because now we understand more. But people become emotionally invested in their theories, their theories become part of their identity. They're not merely a person who thinks right or left wing policies are the best, they ARE a right-winger or a left-winger. At that point an attack on their opinions is an attack on their identity, so they simply cannot countenance that they might be wrong.

This bit is brilliant:

Consider, for example, such a typical sentence from a Pink News leading article as Transphobes, we won’t debate our existence. The shortest rendering that one could make of this in Oldspeak would be: “We will not allow those who hatefully pretend to believe that there are material differences between men and women, and that men’s access to women’s spaces should not be automatic and backed by the full force of the law, to force us to live in a state where our ideological beliefs are not automatically accepted, without deviation.”

Lesbophobia is a branch of misogyny, hence it is included within feminism. Misogyny ultimately boils down to men wanting control and dominion over the female reproductive capacity, and the hatred of lesbians stems from the same impulse. That's why lesbophobia is so often expressed by vile acts such as 'corrective rape'. Some women just aren't attracted to men, I don't know why you wouldn't believe this.
