I know there’s a ton in here referring to the AGP crowd, but my mind goes to the libfems I know (and used to identify with). So many of them are women that truly hate themselves as women. I have a friend that’s an ardent TRA and libfem, doesn’t want kids and doesn’t like them (I totally get that and support being open about what you want) but loves to preach about how to raise non binary kids and teaching kids to be gender-less or whatever it’s called. She also criticizes relationships but doesn’t want to be in a long term one. I am supportive of women living the lives they choose: single, childless, and financially independent is a perfectly fine way to live but I struggle with the constant and vocal criticism of others with different lifestyles, and how vocally they are supportive of men LARPing as women. I really don’t get it. I suspect that something happened to my friend and others like her (like sexual assault or major trauma) that they associate with being female, and try to reject that association at all costs to attempt to protect themselves.

Same, especially the libfems who label themselves NB. I often wonder if there's any correlation between their misogyny and their ardent support of swiw/porn. They know that porn is violent and harmful to women, yet they give it their 110% admiration and support. Is it the violence and degradation against women that they are truely supporting?

I think they're ball handlers who are trying to be friendly with hostile men in the hopes they won't hurt them.

Ugh. I want to know if there’s some sport double entendre there, but I also don’t want to Google “ball handlers”.
