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 enjoyed the sheer powerful rage of her piece, but I totally understand why others aren't on board with the foul and violent language she used.

Surely though, there is no one true way to be a GC feminist? I very much appreciate that we all have a space here to discuss all this, and come to a mutual understanding of each other's thoughts and views and feelings, even when we do have sharp divisions of opinion.

This is a really important statement and its always so inspiring to see whenever we discuss topics where we have sharp divisions of opinions. I hope that we can serve as an example for people outside of the Ovarit community because the world desperately needs this again. I’m so tired of tribalism.
