Isn't Abigail Shrier Jewish??

When you start noticing the demographics of who the woke crowd demonizes you can't unsee it. Its always women, jews, homosexuals or other types of people marginalized in some way. They NEVER criticize people with power.

It's so weird, I'm about halfway into the book right now and I didn't know what to expect, but I have found it to be nothing but compassionate while also giving facts. Perhaps there is more discussed about fertility that I haven't gotten to yet, but she has really only mentioned it a couple of times. It's definitely not the focus of the book. She talks to many trans people, including influencers, and she speaks about them with dignity and respect. It's a trip going on Twitter and reading these doomsday tweets foaming at the mouth, then reading the actual book and seeing that none of what these nimrods on Twitter are saying are even remotely true.

They aren't reading the book. I've noticed this in a lot of tra circles, including pagan ones, that any emphasis on fertility in women is "creepy" or some religious agenda or something, it's as if this isn't a concern actual women have. it's strange, and projected onto everyone else.

Well and I love not allowing childfree women to get their tubes tied because we might "change our minds" isn't creepy, but saying "hey maybe we shouldn't destroy a CHILD'S reproductive system before she can make an informed decision as an adult" is.

Exactly. Completely different story, and it really silences those struggling with fertility. I'm not one, but I feel for them.

I mean, its not like MGTOW and incel/red pill circles don't talk constantly about fertile women. The fertility obsession is coming from men, mostly.

Ahh, I forgot about that....those dudes are weird about that subject. Naturally people worry about heartbreak and naturally people worry about experimentation on the bodies of children. What sort of people would we be if we didn't???

I like the bit about our "silence about forced sterilization of disabled people" as though tons of ROGD girls don't have autism.

This thread literally screams Unhinged, Cluster B, Childhood Trauma all in the same breath

This really is amazingly bad, holy shit. It seriously blows my mind that someone could say all this with a straight face and not realize they’re being either delusionally paranoid or completely willfully dishonest.

Apparently not wanting potentially autistic, lesbian, and/or GNC girls to be sterilised at a young age = 'white nationalism' to TRAs....
