aggressively wielding your own inability to understand something as a weapon against it is actually really effective because it forces the conversation to accomodate to answering this one basic point over and over and allows you or people like you to claim theres no depth to this argument or that your opponents are obsessed with one specific thing
then the second they give up you can switch it up and go WHY WON’T YOU TALK IN GOOD FAITH
its really cowardly basically
haha yeah it’s weird how even after all this time the picture terfs build up of trans women is so childish and flawed. i mean, they have spoken to trans women, read them surely?
the second that trans women actually start to write about their own experiences in a way that is primarily intended for other trans women tho. it’s like, “big swingin’ phds” and the idea that trans discourse is impenetrable post-modern garbage.
the whole reaction from the “progressive left” to that particular thing was to just go on about “masculine activists” obsessed with hurting women
or another time where its like “trans women are obsessed with bathrooms”
i’d say i don’t know how people keep falling for this childish shit but i don’t believe they are “falling for it” they just want either a way to express their loathing without anyone calling them bad, an easy way out of having to think about this by siding with the people with all the platforms or are the sort of scum that like to go on about how the left was good until it got all into “victims” and “guilt” and stopped buying my paper
