Mumsnet surprised me the other day.

I thought it was just a feminist site mothers went to. I didn't remember it being particularly anti trans. But sure enough page after page was trans exclusionary radical feminist rhetoric. I actually thought I had gone onto a page specifically about trans issues, as literally every topic was about it. But no, it was just the general "Feminism" page. I actually looked a couple of times to make sure my eyes were not cheated. I don't remember it being that way when I had gone there before, so very surprising,

internet mom's groups can be really really weird sometimes. I'm not familiar with this one...

Yeah, Feminism has lots of different facets and some are very transphobic.

I think mumsnet is more of a general advice and reddit forum for mothers, it's not particularly feminist.
Ugh, I'm tired of my signature.

I haven't been on mumsnet in a couple months, but I, too, was surprised at how much anti trans stuff there was last time I was there. I can't let myself read those threads. When I visit, I just burrow down in the Pokemon and sweary threads, with occasional forays to the Litter Tray to see if anyone has posted any cute cats.
