Gender Critical Anonymous 40189
Lolcow kicked the GC thread to the curb. While I know that this board is even slower than lolcow, maybe we can just migrate here?
This thread is for the discussion of transgenderism / trans ideology from a gender critical and radical feminist perspective. .
Gender critical and radical feminism define gender as sociological (feminine/masculine) and sex as biological (female/male). Woman is defined as an adult human female. Radical feminists seek to abolish gender as it is used by patriarchy to oppress women socially, reproductively, and financially. They strive to preserve women's spaces (such as restrooms, locker rooms, and health care providers) and areas of artistic and intellectual expression separate from men.
Trans ideology posits that one's gender is self-determined based on one's feelings and defines woman as the characteristics and behaviors traditionally ascribed to females by society. Increasingly, transactivists are conflating gender and sex and asserting that a person can self-identify both gender and sex.
Gender critical feminists strive to maintain the distinction between gender and sex. The conflation of gender and sex erases the biological reality of women, eliminates women-only spaces, and disestablishes women as a protected class. Existing laws and legislation currently being passed around the world allowing for self-identification on legal documents do not differentiate between gender and sex.
The acronym TERF (Trans-Exclusionary Radical Feminism) is used primarily by transactivists and their allies to denigrate radical feminists and other women who express gender critical ideas. Transactivists portray TERFs as violent oppressors by virtue of their ideas alone.
Posts of related news and web articles are welcome. Posts of photos, videos, and blogs of transactivists for the purposes of discussion and critique are welcome. Please refrain from derailing, infighting, and ad hominem attacks. This thread is not intended for the general discussion of feminism, sexuality, misogyny, or misandry.

I removed comment spam that was not conductive to the thread. Now start over.
If every critical post in this thread is going to be met with "Troon!!!!1" comments, we're going to lock it just like lolcow did. Have a discussion or don't bother.
How is "peak autism" a valid comment? It doesn't add to the discussion either.

That one was deleted too, please refresh if you can't see the changes yet.
>There’s certainly a connection between my autism and my transgender/homosexual stuff. They’re part of my neurotype that makes me, me. I don’t think they can be separated […] As far as if I’d only had one issue or the other: If I didn’t have autism, I feel I would have transitioned in my late teens. I wouldn’t have let a little bad news tell me not to do it. I would have also been more self-sufficient (I never held a job for more than three months back before my diagnosis with autism). If I’d just been autistic, I really worry I would have been one of those people commonly referred to as ‘neck beards’ or ‘men’s rights’. By being female, but having to live as male, I learned to understand both genders and their ways of thinking (typically). I really value that insight, now. (Transwoman with autism)

thoughts? I think its that people on the spectrum don't understand how deeply NTs are affected by gender roles, and then are pressured by NTs gender ideology to match their autism with an "appropriate" gender identity
