Hate from trans activists
Transfolk often complain of ‘transmisogyny’ – a term reportedly invented by Julia Serano and meaning ‘hatred of transwomen’. This is an example of language appropriation by trans people. There is already a perfectly apt term for the hatred of them and that is ‘transphobia’ or, even more accurate, ‘transmisia’. As those who call themselves ‘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 male born trans people 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. Edited to add: see also this page and the one on Tumblr.
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 male born trans are basically indulging in a sexual fetish than I previously thought to be the case.
Trans Pride Scotland defend performer’s exhortation to “throat-punch” feminists.
Apparently it’s OK promote violence against women if it’s just “tongue in cheek”, regardless of how it makes us feel because our feelings don’t matter compared to those of precious, entitled misogynists like Peyton Rose, who said the comment was made while in a state of vulnerability and stress and in self defence. Self defence against what? Being violently misgendered again?

And here is Trans Pride Scotland’s statement as posted on their Facebook page. A feminist who shared it on her FB page accompanied by the term DARVO got a 30-day suspension. Perhaps somebody could remind TPS that the world isn’t a kind place to women either and acting as apologists for those who promote violence isn’t making the world a better place for anyone.
