I am very happy to see this. Notice they aren't telling him to die or get raped or suck ladydick, like they do with JKR. The sexism is so obvious, and so ironic at the same time.

All his followers will now get to see how even the teeniest support for women’s rights causes the knives to come out.

I’m very happy that he’s getting bolder now. Something tells me he’s not going to backpedal this time. He has officially aligned himself with Team TERF.

I don't think he can ignore the nonsense anymore. He's definitely peaked. And he's not one to be afraid of confrontation.

Guess now’s as good a time as ever to burn the Dawkins books I still have somewhere (leftover from my teenage edgy atheism days). Terrible for years but this is beyond the pale.

Not an intolerant, fanatical cult who’d be at home in a witch trial. Nope. Not one bit.

*Gender identity is NOT a threat to women's rights! The only genuine threat to women's rights are by the men who dictate what women should do and by the women who follow these men. *

Quite. And TW and their handmaidens are now dictating to women what they should call themselves and what spaces they can have. That’s about a solid threat to women as you can get.

So if it’s not a threat to women’s rights, why the frothraging at anyone signing, eh?

Gender identity is NOT a threat to women's rights! The only genuine threat to women's rights are by the men who dictate what women should do and by the women who follow these men.

But that's… that's you! You Genderist men, who use the male invention of gender to oppress and dictate what women should do, wear, what a woman even is, that's all you and is precisely why women have fought against the idea fo gender for decades. Gender anything is a threat to women's rights because it's antithetical to women's humanity to define half of the human race by male-created stereotypes. The fact that men are now erasing women even more by identifying as those stereotypes makes it worse, but even if that weren't happening, gender would still be a threat to women and girls everywhere. Always has been.

TRA logic:
"@ RichardDawkins You know you're openly declaring that you want a minority group essentially made illegal, to have their rights and existance denied to them. That's pretty genocidal Richard. I know you've always been something of a prick, but what pushed you into outright genocide?"

"That's pretty genocidal Richard" is going to be my knee-jerk mental overlay on all and sundry hyperbole now. Accusations that regular, factual words are literal violence? That's pretty genocidal Richard. Comparisons of almost anything to Nazism? That's pretty genocidal Richard. College students freaking out about a rock? That's pretty genocidal Richard. This is going to be fun.

genocide

Gawd the hyperbole. Way to make light of genocide.

They’ve certainly got that hyperbole thing covered, haven’t they?

Along with narcissism, they seem to suffer a monumental persecution complex.

Richard Dawkins: ‘men and women exist’ TRAs: ‘We are now dead because of your genocidal words (but alive enough to tweet)’

minority group essentially made illegal, to have their rights and existance denied to them.

What these people want do to female human beings that don't follow their religion. They do have a flair for ironic hyperbole, I'll give them that.

But there is so many great answears there in responsen to TRAs as well! Very uplifting!

why do they always want to burn books so badly???

A lot fo them are "ex-" Nazis, remember, they would've cut their teenage edge lord teeth on images of Nazi pyres of wrongthink.

"General Erica" in the comment section, oh my freaking god.... At least that little brain dead TRA was able to straight out admit that they think women's rights are tRaNsPhObIc without dancing around it as they usually do.

So many great answears to TRAs there as well!!!!!! And such a long comment section! I did not read it at first, but its really worth reading. Very uplifting to see so many sane comments.

Sex is defined by the United Nations as “the physical and biological characteristics that distinguish males from females.’’ (Gender Equality Glossary, UN Women)

For how much longer?

But this is Great! Richard Dawkins is a famous biologist and author ! Him sharing this will bring the issue a lot of attention!! Also he will very likely recieve a lot less abuse for this, than if he were a female biologist doing the exact same thing...

They tried to get in his mentions about "muh trans genocide" and he was like "sounds lit" and now here we are. I think Anna Slatz called this an "own goal".

My main criticism of Dawkins is... he's impulsive somtimes, and this was impulsive, but - people will notice it and it will cause a stir for sure.

I wish I could sign with my real name. But I'd end up losing my job.
