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
Reason one billion and seven to never give birth to a male.
If you look up his old name, he assaulted a social worker. He bit her, yanked out her hair, wrapped his legs and arms around her while she was driving.
Articles referred to him as a “girl” and “She”.
His abusive childhood is apparently reason to keep releasing him and find him not guilty of various crimes in the past.
I had a pretty abusive childhood, does that mean I get to do whatever I want too? Nah. Bc I’m a woman.
Same, and I can't recall a single instance of a woman getting the abusive childhood excuse. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong
Not even Aileen Wuornos.
I’ve watched a ton of crime documentaries. Nope.
I literally just finished Why Does He Do That? by Lundy Bancroft today and he says that abusive men get so much mileage out of excuses like the difficult childhood and those same things never ever fly for women.
Wow if even a man can see some thing is unfair you know it's bad
That's SOP in the Irish "justice" system.
Also if they had a good childhood and never did anything bad before, they get released too.
I've joked many times in the past I'm sure I could rob a bank and just apologise and be released given how often people get away with crime here.
Didn't we just have the Isla Bryan scandal 5 minutes ago? No one learned anything at all?
Every time I see his picture I think about Baby Jane.
Jesus Christ. They keep topping themselves, don’t they?
Please sign the petition.
He's a clown out of a horror movie, holy shit...
He is terrifying!
