There is a # trend on twitter where lots of young women are creating threads on how they peaked and showing solidarity with each other. Check it out 👩🏽‍❤️‍💋‍👩🏼

I was a huge TRA in university. I pontificated. I screamed. I aggressively fought for “trans rights”, pronouns - the whole bit. Until a trans identifying “friend” insisted they were a lesbian. Light bulb moment. It’s been getting brighter ever since.

I’m 15. My friends started binding their breasts and self-harming, and mainstream media and TikTok told them it was normal. I’m afraid to speak out in real life because of cancel culture and stigma, but I believe in women-only spaces XX

What made me peak? Seeing females a few years younger than me be told they were actually boys because they liked the same things I did. Guess what? I’m still a female and proud to be a woman. My heart breaks for this generation of gnc females.

23 year old bisexual here so grew up in the early 2000s as a tomboy. I only wore clothes from the men’s section lol. I have a lot to say.

Never was a full blown TRA but did think people should be nice and use their pronouns but never really thought on the subject further than that. I peaked back in 2016 when they allowed males into women’s toilets... without asking women on our opinion. I peaked further when JK Rowling posted that reasonable speech and got called a Nazi.

I peaked fully when I was told to educate myself about TIMs, I started to click on a random TIMs reddit profile and no exaggeration, Every. Single. One. Had some form of porn on it🤢. Learning about Sissy porn and AGP peaked me to moon and back.

Misogyny kinks, DD/lg, age play, crinkling, furry, futanari, yuri, clopping, AGP, rape, BDSM kinks were COMMON for TIMs to have. These were all just random profiles I clicked on r/lesbianactually and r/actuallesbian. Also those plastic ED Gein mammory vests, creepy rubber masks of women’s faces, the 70s prostitute outfits, the cheap plastic wigs, the poorly applied makeup,the fishnets tights and ridiculous heels all just screamed FETISHISTIC MALE to me. What happened to the term Transvestite ?

If I were to tell anyone my age about my GC opinions I will most likely be called a bigot. I know sex is immutable, I know women’s oppression is sex based, I don’t think men can understand or claim the female experience of womanhood therefore I will be considered hateful.

I used to think TIMs were gay men who had horrible internalised homophobia but after eDuCaTiNg MySeLf I now know that AGP males are not harmless, effeminate gay men in dresses, far from it.

The seeds of Peaking were sown at my all girls school I attended as there were no out lesbians due to the horrendous social exclusion or outright lesbophobia ( I was not Spared this bullying) but the very same girls who said Lesbians are dirty , unnatural or predatory , celebrated and gushed over Bruce Jenners new womanhood which I just found to be a huge double standard lol

Every girl I suspected to be lesbian , has now all come out as TIFs or NB. Also the new headteacher for my old school is a TIM, I wonder what drove him to apply to a job where he gets unchecked access to teen girls ?? I sadly don’t see many tomboys or gnc women left that are content with the label woman.

There’s a lot of shit that peaked me tbh , all chipping away at my “ be kind” mantra I told myself. I

I'm a 24 year old bisexual and I feel so alone in this irl lol. I was always the "annoying feminist girl" amongst my group of schoolfriends. When I went to uni everyone was a she/they or they/them and I sort of quietly assumed it was a somewhat cringe but mostly harmless last-throes-of-adolescence phase, and that most of them would grow out of it when we graduated. I don't see that that has happened yet. It's a bit disheartening. Maybe COVID arrested people our age's social development a bit and it will start happening soon.

24 year old GC butch lesbian here. It feels like everyone our age is in the gender cult, except maybe non-liberal straight people. Glad to see some sane young GC LGB people exist!

Yay someone my age!!! There doesn’t seem to be many of us here but hopefully numbers will grow

It's honestly a relief to see you both here and to know that you exist! Sometimes I see younger people who have literally grown up in a world where "accepting pronouns" and "gender affirmation" are just... a norm, as ingrained as covering your face when you sneeze.

23 here myself! Glad to see some Gen Z women swimming against the tide.

I count myself lucky that I've found a lot of situations where this casually comes up in conversation, and when I give casually GC comments, I'm met with a chorus of approval. As if they were waiting for the cue. But at this point, I think nearly everyone's really thinking it.

Love this read!!!

I love to hear/read Women’s Anger. I mean this in a positive way.

We need more anger

Men fear it. Many old frightening tales were of angry female spirits/dieties/etc

crinkling ... clopping

I'm well old enough to know better than to google questionable terms for things with which I'm unfamiliar, and yet, here I am doing it and having serious regrets. Why???

Lol they are nightmarish kinks to have. I remember when the My Little Pony fan base was only young girls 😭😭 Now the men have ruined one of my favourite childhood shows 😩.

This hashtag seems to have been very successful. The stories being shared are really interesting and heartfelt. I hope that some of the young women tweeting find their way here and also to Spinster - we should encourage that, especially for young women who have been excluded and abused by their own communities and friendship groups because they won't read the script.

I feel like a proud older sister. I love this!

Same, it's good to see people waking up to the havoc affecting women and their rights these days. Enough.

I peaked around 2020 (I know, I'm late bloomer). It started with the language policing and noticed I walked on eggshells around anyone in the TRA community, it was very uncomfortable. I tried to be nice, use correct pronouns and such. Then I saw some of the memes being shared around that time about how "trans women" were the demographic that were least likely to date and how we're transphobic for not fucking them. That's some incel shit right there and alarms went off. Other memes (I'm paraphrasing) "if we're attracted to someone, but don't like their genitals, then WE have a genital fetish". I felt gaslit everywhere I tried to ask questions. Then one day it just clicked, the language policing, the forced relationships/sex with TiMs (and why TiMs only?! Barely heard a word from TiFs) and the consequencent shaming that came if one refused. I saw former incels and abusers transition over night and surprise surprise, you couldn't "deadname" them or bring up their past as abusers. Clean slate. What really threw me into full blown terf mode was when a white TiM raised in privilege (male/white/affluent) told me he was far more oppressed than children in cages along the Mexican border. Let's call them what they are, fucking concentration camps. As a Latina my blood boil. The rest is history.

One last thing, an acquaintance on FB came out as a TiM to his wife and said he'd kill himself if he couldn't be his true self. At this point they were married with 3 verey young children. Wife freaks out and says it's fine and she accepts him as he is. Fast forward to 2021 and this dude is getting his nails done on the regular, laser electrolysis, has and endocrinologist, was shopping regularly for gender affirming outfits. His wife? Well she USED to he a stay at home mom, now she works at a care center full time and drives door dash at night. He only has one job (stocking shelves at a grocery store). He spends a lot of time on Twitter and frequently posts his venmo and cash app for food and rent because both of them working isn't enough to feed the kids. Then this. He posts about his wife being upset, tired and angry. That she has outbursts and the children find it traumatic, WHAT COULD IT BE?! It must be her Pristique right? No my dude, she's sick of your selfish shit. Poor woman, I hope she finds the courage to leave.

Edit*** he posts his gofund me for gender affirming surgery, he's been saving his money for that. I can't believe that comes before his kids. Typical narcissist shit.

Ugh, I peaked in 2020 also. Beginning of the pandemic. I was a screaming one for five years. Even tried to get an older terf fired from work.

Then I peaked completely randomly. I think for many of us the remote character of it makes it appear inoffensive, and taking it all separately. It's when you take a step back and look at the larger picture, and when it starts affecting you that you realize. There's no late blooming. Blooming happens when the bud is ready 😉
