Re: Ads

I am glad this subject came up. First of all, I had to turn off all 3 of my 'adblocks' in order to actually see the ads that Tat is using. On my browser they are at the bottom and very discreet. Of course I did not click on them. I hate ads. They are an issue I strictly avoid - so much so that if I ...

Re: September 27, 2019: Gender Non-conforming G.I. Joe

I definitely think this cartoon is specifically aimed at the new gender neutral Barbie. If you have seen any of the ads for this new Barbie - it has a changeable wig that will let the Barbie have long or short hair and also a variety of clothes - just do an image search and you will see. None of the...

Re: Relationship with modern media?

The question is whether everything that depicts the horror of human history should be sanitized to avoid gratifying/glorifying/titillating viewers. I don't think we have to avoid telling about the horrors. I think we just need to have a frank way of presenting them. There is quite a difference betw...

Re: Relationship with modern media?

This being an anti-porn environment, do you also apply this vilification to popular TV shows such as Game of Thrones, Westworld, True Blood, Rome, Orange is the New Black, The Tudors, Spartacus, etc etc etc etc.? It seems that practically every new show these days is filled with often graphic sex a...

Re: June 20, 2019: Threats 8

It's hard to express how I feel about this 'rubber dolling'. I mean - ugh - gross - not for me, but really is it worse than a transvestite wearing women's clothing and hoping to 'pass' in order to play out some sort of fantasy - sexual or otherwise. They do after all make a suit that has a penis so ...

Re: How the T (and the rest of the alphabet) joined the LGB

To hear that how the trans-movement has focused on corrupting the lesbian culture is very unsettling. I am not lesbian, but I am very non-conforming woman. I am independent, physically active, run my own business and speak my mind. Plenty of people just assume I am a lesbian, which is fine. They can...

Re: Let's share some readings between radfems

This is a really, really long read but well worth it. It's not entirely flawless but it does a great job of offering citations to prove that RadFems are hardly punching down when it comes to TRAs. They are well-funded, many right-wing leaning and incredibly anti-women as a whole. It also throws a w...

Re: Why can't human beings change sex?

Knowing that all of the TRAs were going to be jumping in and forcing 'debate' was why I was really hesitant to even get involved posting here. It's hard to have any meaningful discussion with other radfems without them hijacking the conversation or forcing cyclical arguments. Then you have well-mea...

Re: Abortion & Radical Feminism

So, the way you are wording the questions begs the question as to whether you are talking about morality or legality. I can easily see a radical feminist having a moral dilemma about the life of a potential child and being 'anti-abortion' - as in let's do everything we can to make sure that an unint...

Re: Why can't human beings change sex?

Just as a point of clarity and also to ask other's opinions, do you approve of trans-women athletes competing as women in competitions? The reason I ask is because I think this is one of the more illustrative points of the whole 'can't change sex' debates. We have all probably seen the news stories ...

Having not been a member of the old forum and having joined this forum in order to learn more about the topics presented in Tat's presentation of it, I must say this has become an interesting journey. I am not a novice at forums and have seen plenty of trolling. Never have I seen such succinct troll...

Gender identity disorder is no different from regular body dysmorphic disorder, and very few people would argue that people who have BDD should be able to freely undergo plastic surgery to ease their mental pain. I don't think that all gender identity issues are the same as body dysmorphic disorder...

I'm not saying that no one ever submits to these procedures because they've been misguided as to what gives them worth, etc. etc. I'm just saying that I do not believe that every single one is such a case. I don't understand painting people with so broad a brush. I don't think every choice to is su...

To be very clear, I don't seek to dissuade anyone from pursuing the choices they wish to make. As long as they are adults and as long as what they are pursuing does not infringe on the rights of others. I mean, who cares what I think -right? I have no arrogance about it. This is a forum where we sha...
