Gender Critical Feminism
Feminism is the movement to liberate women from patriarchy. We stand up for the rights of women to control our own bodies as individuals and to control women-only spaces as a class.
Women are adult human females. We do not believe that men can become women by 'feeling' like women or 'identifying' as women. We condemn the erasure of females and female-only spaces, the silencing of critical thinking, the cancelling of feminists and critics, the denial of biological reality and of sex-based oppression. We oppose the 'cotton ceiling' and the pressure on lesbians to have sex with men. Women are oppressed to exploit their biological sex characteristics, and women have a right to a movement that is about their own liberation from that oppression. We resist the redefinition of both "women" and "feminism" to make them serve men.
"Women do not decide at some point in adulthood that they would like other people to understand them to be women, because being a woman is not an ‘identity.’ Women’s experience does not resemble that of men who adopt the ‘gender identity’ of being female or being women in any respect. The idea of ‘gender identity’ disappears biology and all the experiences that those with female biology have of being reared in a caste system based on sex." –Sheila Jeffreys, Gender Hurts
"The key thing to understand about trans rights activism is that, unlike gay rights activism, it is not just a movement seeking to ensure that trans people are not discriminated against. It is, rather, a movement committed to a fundamental reconceptualization of the very idea of what makes someone a man or a woman. In theory, this equally affects both men and women, but in practice, almost all the social pressure is coming from trans women towards the idea of ‘woman’ and the rights of women." –Jane Clare Jones
Switzerland took forever to let women vote, but they didn't think at all about transgenderism ... was this shit even put up for public vote?
I fear that now that Switzerland has fallen, Germany will too, soon. Or perhaps it has already - citizens are never informed of the sick shit legislators have decided to allow.
It was not. We voted on gay marriage a few months before self Id was slipped in without a vote
This is very sinister because usually we vote on EVERYTHING
Switzerland usually follows Germany though, not the other way around
Do you know what the rules are for minor surgery in Germant? I mean the mutilating (trans) kind. Is there a law or something?
Well, I haven't heard about it being changed, so I hope they apply the same rules as to cosmetic surgery in general, which I ... just googled and found out to my horror that there is no minimum age. As long as the parents consent, anything goes.
There's a "recommendation" that no cosmetic surgery be done below the age of 18, so the clinic whose website I found when googling claims that most surgeons won't do it ...
But .. yeah. It is totally possible, we know there are those who would do it, and enough parents who want to trans their children.
It seems I was not aware of this because, well, without a gender craze, most parents insane enough to want breast implants or nose jobs for their underage daughters probably won't find a surgeon who is willing to do it.
But ... ew. Breast amputation is totally possible for underage girls. And I am sure it is being done. And I have no idea whether there's stricter laws on castration.
This absolutely blows my mind. Children have developing brains and they are expected to make life-long decisions? This hack job (literal) doctor will be remembered as a monster.
