the article was literally posted today and it's already had two post-publication edits, admitting that they not only gave out blatantly false information but also misrepresented MK's views and stances (probably intentionally). whats even more telling, though, is that they were asked to change the sentence "she became convinced gender is fixed" to "she became convinced sex is fixed". instead of correcting it they simply took out the sentence altogether. why? because they know damn well that it's ridiculous to frame "sex is fixed" as a hateful conservative view that one only reaches after exposure to online hate groups. they could hide behind the word 'gender', which is ill defined and changes meaning depending on how transactivists want to use it, but they know they can't claim that sex isn't fixed. not if they want to chance in hell of anyone agreeing with this mess.
it's just cowardice and hypocrisy at its very finest. they cherry pick parts of their interview to write an entirely slanderous and defamatory article filled with straight up lies, and instead of acknowledging or responding to the immense amount of backlash against them, the only thing they can do is backtrack, change what they said, and try their absolute best to keep painting us as a ridiculous hate group instead of people who believe in biology. The surprisingly large amount of backlash and people pointing out the terrible journalism is really refreshing and really makes me believe that something is shifting. I would've expected the comments to be full of gender fans bashing radfems, but it's full of sane people pointing out that this article is nowhere near fact based journalism & noticing all the shady ways in which they try to misconstrue radfem beliefs while pushing their own cult ideology. the people are waking up and transactivists are only digging themselves into a deeper pit trying to prove that radfems are anything but correct.
EDIT: i noticed that they also changed the title, now scrubbing all mentions of them referring to us as a hate group. gotta love the classic transactivist method of "sweeping shit under the rug and then pretending like you never said it". just like mermaids suddenly claiming that no, they've never said that children are born in the wrong body! 🙄 they are so openly dishonest it's mind boggling
