I'm quite disappointed to see women here who are supposedly "gender critical" dismiss this woman so readily when it came to her "obviously unhinged " blogs like are you serious?? You're embarrassing and this is part of the reason it's getting increasingly hard to call myself GC. She was being attacked even by the ones who proudly call themselves TERFs you'd think they'd understand her a bit, but all these labels apparently mean we're pacifist and throw other women under the bus when it's bad optics. She is still a woman who is standing up to this ideology her own way, who has been abused herself but I guess it doesn't matter because "she makes us look bad" incredible. Her writing style is powerful and her rage is what's needed and being angry and reading women like her being rightfully angry as well is what made me see this ideology for what it is and because I felt that rage myself as should all of us. I just hate the absolute lack of female solidarity when it's inconvenient, like not even trying to understand her perspective just immediately villainizing her so we could be perceived as "the good ones". I guess im just disillusioned by how quickly these GCs were to paint her as this violent monster & compare her to TRAS like wtf?? also calling her mentally unstable, schizophrenic …and these are supposed to be feminists the fucking irony

Btw I'm not even gonna delve into her sexual assaults which she apologized and took full responsibility for, and the whole porn industry that she took part in as I obviously condemn it

I thought what she had to say was powerful. We can't ignore women's voices just because they are rough. Being a women is rough. I don't have to agree with everything a woman has said or done to find value in her words. Every female perspective is important to me. The blog post that was copied here the other day just showed me how much we all have in common as women. She's deep into porn culture, but she still sees the truth of the trans madness. Obviously she has done bad things that she admits to and feels remorse for. That doesn't take away her credibility. Hell, how many men have done equal or worse and feel no remorse and face no consquences? How many male creators of any kind have committed sexual abuse and rape that we never hear about and we continue to support their work and listen to their voices? How many men do we know personally who have committed crimes we'll never know about but we still allow them in our lives? I find absolutely nothing wrong with reading the perspective of a woman deep in the pits of the worst patriarchy has to offer, and I will continue to fight so that other women never have to face the evils that she has.

How many men have written fictional accounts of the rape and murder of women with slavering delight? How much philosophy and religion has been written in absolute seriousness about how women should be controlled and killed if they don’t submit? Lily Cade is showing us the price of all kinds of misogyny. She’s paid that price. We are supposed to be for her too. She unequivocally stated that women are her people and her tribe. How many of us have done the same?
