Daily reminder that trannies are mentally ill.
Advocates rallying against pornography and prostitution were surprised by an aggressive group some labeled as "queer activists."
Well I find the whole thing humorous tbh. To explain the term TERF means (Transgender/Transsexual Exempt Radical Feminist) take your average radical feminist.
Good, now that feminist above says NO transgender/transsexual people allowed in our little circle of vaginas. Fake Vaginas are out, only reals need apply here.
This is literally what that graffiti means that by killing a TERF they are essentially "saving" a transgender person. It's a joke, a stupid joke because the people that target and kill transgender people will keep killing them. Because they are transgender. That's it.
Meanwhile, radical feminists who have been advocates and allies of the LGBTQ cause are now being ostracized because a few of them have made honest critiques that transgender males will never understand the complexities of growing up female because they biologically are missing the essential gonads and hormones to do so. Their "idea" of the female experience is not the "reality".
I want to add this works vice versa too. A female to male can never fully understand the "reality" of growing up as a boy. Her experiences of masculinity are based on a very small percentage and perhaps from literature and media she consumed to build up the mental "ideal" of masculinity but she will never know what it's like to be male because from birth she was and is a female.
We could argue nature vs nurture here, but we cannot argue how puberty changes us mentally/physically/emotionally.
Heteronormative people are still the majority, and to jump on the whole "STRAIGHT IS GREAT" is a fruitless waste of time. We all know it, and the only time I think it needs to be addressed is when media tries to make shows that somehow make heterosexual relationships somehow less than other types. This can be applied to ALL relationships, when one puts one type over another for the simple sake of virtue signaling they are just as bad as the groups that they are working against.
Toxic masculinity is not some throw away dismissal comment that men should just ignore because it's assumed it's a "feminist thing". It's actually a real thing among men who are aware of the problems within the masculine culture. Here are a few examples of "toxic masculinity":
"Boys don't cry" - repressing emotions
"Boys will be Boys" - regarding bullying
"Must always win an argument"
"Using anger or violence as a means to resolve a hurt/conflict"
"Must always protect and take care of their partners"
"Man must take care of the entire family"
"You ____ like a girl"
"Be a Man, Man Up"
Bottom line is that toxic masculinity does undermine masculinity, it is a lie about how men should behave that they tell themselves after being told by other men who were told the same lie. In fact, it's the opposite of biblical masculinity where man is given a partner (woman) to help together raise a family. Later, God saw how we struggled even with that concept, and so created a law wherein both genders are to be treated with respect. Sadly that law was corrupted so that it became more and more toxic and thus abused by those who wanted to exploit it. So God sent prophets to call out that sin. The cycle repeated until Jesus came. If you want to know what it's like to be a man, look to Jesus. Let Him be your example, of masculinity, courage, love, and yes emotions. Jesus wept. Jesus on the cross made sure his mom was going to be taken care of by entrusting her to his best friend John. All along Jesus showed courage and love. Let him be the litmus test, and please test everything you hear against your knowledge about Jesus and his words. It will help you with your partners and life.
For women its a bit harder, but there are examples in the Bible to look at. Where men are the Kings and leaders, women, we are the secret agents. We work silently, and our mission is only known to us and to God. It is later revealed "For such a time as this". (Esther) (Ruth) (Mary)... and the list goes on. James Bond has nothing on us
I want to add as a side note that feminism, in its purest sense, is a good thing for both genders. I believe God was the first feminist and its the struggle for equality to take the burden placed on men and cut it in half. We share the work, we share the struggle. However, there is also a very evil infiltration within the ranks. We have double agents among us, moles, that have sewn seeds of distrust, fear, and evil that undermines the essence of female. Those who believe there can't be alternatives, that its one or the other, that discriminate based on age, gender, race... who advocate the destruction of motherhood are not feminists. They are tools of evil that has already invaded what we could class as the "patriarchy", and have been used to divide and destroy us.
Recognize that evil, call it out. It will flee.
