Over the last few days I had terfs basically unleash whatever they could at me. I had a anxiety attack two days ago because of it but at this point and taking a step back I can view them as what they really are a hate group and nothing more. Among call trans women rapists, misgendering and trying anything to trigger past trauma I got these tweets.
What this is nothing but hate speech from a hate group. What they do to trans women is nothing short of terrible but its largely overlooked because trans misogyny is just par for the course when discussing trans women who have been extremely vocal. The same thing happened to Fallon Fox, Parker Molloy, Tobi Hill Meyer and Drew Deveaux. Trans women speaking out for feminism that includes all women hits a intersection that allows hatred to be released without much backlash.
Another trans performer made this meme of me and honestly I’m really thankful they picked a photo where I’m giving good face but truly trans misogyny isn’t just about outsiders attacking our community but trans woman on trans woman hate. Trans misogyny like misogyny can be extremely internalized thus trans women lashing out and attacking other trans women is extremely common much in the way. Of course there is conflicts within each group of people but you never really see two trans men posting memes of each other calling them “Face of Hypocrite” (grammatically correct would be: “Face of a Hypocrite”). Parker Molloy has faced a lot of backlash from other trans women as well including constant harassment via Andrea James.
I really wanted to put this all out here just to kind of put it into the universe for other trans women who may face harassment via terfs that they are nothing but a hate group and us as a trans community need to stand up to trans misogyny going on within our community. There is no excuse to insult other trans women for having different beliefs or views. This concept of a trans woman being “uppity” and asking for too much is just misogyny and because it is a trans woman it gets so often swept under the rug. I know what I experienced the last few days were awful and no one deserves this particularly from fellow trans women.
