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
She must be so proud of herself. Meanwhile, children are being mutilated.
Imagine wanting to harm children with wrong-sex hormones or mutilate them with surgery so badly that you will even refuse to work towards other things that you want.
The kool-aid is strong.
This woman is deranged. I can't imagine how livid I would be with jackass in my legislature.
Americans you need to get rid of the filibuster because the same people keep using it to block civil rights bills consistenly and it's comedic to other countries even without the sexist female politician being a joke here
The filibuster is complicated. There are times like this, but there are other instances like when Wendy Davis filibustered the Texas state senate (?) to try to stop an anti-abortion bill from advancing.
Also, I’m assuming there are different rules for each state legislature that aren’t exactly the same as the US Senate rules (the US House does not have a filibuster rule). But this is what happens when you have governmental bodies that opt out of standard parliamentary procedure/Robert’s Rules.
The system of government was designed at every point to guard against the tyranny of the masses. Thank god for the filibuster, it's a pity that it's been so watered down by people deciding to change the rules when they don't like an outcome.
