MtTs often complain of ‘transmisogyny’ – a term reportedly invented by MtT Julia Serano and meaning ‘hatred of transwomen’. This is an example of language appropriation by MtTs. There is already a perfectly apt term for the hatred of trans people and that is ‘transphobia’ or, even more accurate, ‘transmisia’. As transwomen are male they can be – and obviously many are – misogynists but they can’t be victims of misogyny unless they are genuinely mistaken for being born female. I therefore reject the notion of ‘transmisogyny’ but not ‘trans misogyny’ i.e. the misogyny of trans people, particularly the hatred from MtTs against women who challenge trans ideology
The TERF is a slur website collected many examples but has apparently now stopped doing so. The reason is not because there is any lessening of that hatred, so this page is devoted to more recent examples.
Notable themes include saying that ‘TERFs’ are the same as, or worse than, Nazis, yet the irony of labelling people in this way, attributing to people thus labelled – including me – views we simply don’t have and calling for us to be violated, tortured and killed, is entirely lost on them. We are not the ones behaving like Nazis – they are. I would add that seeing so many instances of the fantasy about ‘TERFs’ choking on their dicks, I am persuaded that many more MtFs are basically indulging in a sexual fetish than I previously thought to be the case.
And it’s all our fault!
