Oh there's definitely dissent in Feminism land. Problem is that it's hard to discuss those when you've got groups who think all feminists are teh evilist evil of satan world.


well jah but that doesn't mean we can't show the multifacets of feminism, all of the intersection issues and issues with white feminists.

Is it possible that its still the guy detector, but in lil' sis' zeal she calls it the dick detector, not quite mature enough in her beliefs (as we've seen previously) to realize that not every person should be identified solely by the genitals they possess. Curly seems unmoved completely. Maybe in future strips this could lead to a conversation about why that's improper terminology...

I'm currently operating on the assumption that Tat isn't deliberately transphobic, but just doesn't ever think about trans people and specifically how the Sisterhood could be harming trans women.

So, yeah, maybe just a "this is what trans people are" thing, and then a "these are ways trans people are excluded from feminist spaces".

I think it just scans for people who are going to be dicks. I mean, scanning one's mindset is nothing new, the devil has one that registers bad thoughts.

That's better, but not necessarily *much* better. After all, there's a lot of guys that aren't *deliberately* misogynistic....

It's definitely ignorance. Maybe someone could give Tat some helpful sources about transgender people. Like this one?

I feel like the stuff we give him should be more information pieces and less emotional arguments. Are there brochures?
