Lady shared one article that barely even criticized using gender neutral language and now this is the reaction.

I think the fact of the matter is that if queer/trans people integrated themselves into groups with people of color, specifically black trans people, the women turning out to be transphobic wouldn't be that much of a surprise.
I understand the concern and attention to racism from the white trans community is little to none, but both Rowling and Margaret were racist prior to being open about their transphobia, and not unsurprisingly most white trans and queer folks didn't care.
Racism is often going to be a precursor to a lot of other discriminatory beliefs, including transphobia. So I really do suggest y'all start caring about racism rather than silencing people of color, and I beg of y'all to care about it before it impacts you.
Because racism is the foundation of a lot of discrimination, and a lot of these people coming out to be transphobic were hella racist to begin with, especially towards black people.
Realize the trend please.
I absolutely encourage you to share this if you're white and trans.

I feel like if you're upset about the phrase "pregnant person (or people that can get pregnant)" or similarly gender neutral phrases like "person with a vagina/uterus/etc." and think it's dehumanizing, you should ask yourself why that is. Are women not people? They're included under "people that can get pregnant", and if you are a woman, you're still free to say you're a pregnant woman. Why does it feel like a personal attack to separate pregnancy or body parts away from womanhood? Think about why that may be. One can acknowledge that dolls and the color pink and makeup may not be a part of one's womanhood, and that womanhood isn't defined by colors or toys or clothes or behaviors, so why should it be defined by child bearing or body parts that even some cis women are born without? Unless you've got some internalized misogyny, and are attached to the idea of woman being little more than the ability to be fucked and reproduce.

As I always think when someone famous gets called a terf, I hope Margaret Atwood peaks, and even if she doesn’t I hope it inspires many women to peak themselves.

If you say “I’m not a terf!” but the only people who are defending what you said/did ARE terfs? Then you may have to rethink where you stand
