Re: Should white feminists and feminist allies criticize minority created media the same?

That would be pandering not encouraging. Yes, the art should be criticized if elements are problematic. Anything less and we'd have to address the possible implication that we're saying they aren't of the same caliber as white, cis men. White people telling people of colour their art is problematic...

Should white feminists and feminist allies criticize minority created media the same?

There's two competing intersectional feminist interests here. A) The desire to encourage more minority creators and voices in media. B) And the imperative to call out problematic elements that most media will have in some way. So do feminists call out the problematic elements the same way they would...

Re: Meghan Murpy on Gender Identity and Women's Rights

I'm not saying fuck trans at all. Then answer my question. Name a single advantage to trans people when it comes to defining man/woman biologically. What are the advantages to transmen being defined as kind of woman and transwomen being defined as a kind of man? I think trans people need and deserv...

Re: Meghan Murpy on Gender Identity and Women's Rights

If it's so complex, why do the people calling for man and woman to be biologically defined always have the conclusion of "F*** trans people" on every issue? I'm betting you can't name a single positive for trans or Androgen Insensitivity Syndrome women that comes from defining women biologically. So...

Re: Meghan Murpy on Gender Identity and Women's Rights

A free speech zone will reflect the biases of outside society with free speech. So if the outside society is transphobic overall, it would be transphobic within college. To have a different environment in college, you have to consciously work against the external paradigm. "How do we define a woman?...

It's science. Not ideology. i.e. boys can be into "girl" things and girls into "boy" things. No one disputes that. which is just another oppressive tactic of the radical left.

Re: Meghan Murpy on Gender Identity and Women's Rights

Poor women have different needs than rich women. Biological women have different needs than trans women. Why is it so controversial to say this??

I have arachnophobia. Also apparently experts say taking most house spiders outside will result in their demise anyway. As they're specifically adapted for indoor environments and can't tolerate the outdoors for long. It's a waste of time to put them out. http://www.burkemuseum.org/blog/myth-house-s...
