“Feminist” Facebook page with 25,000 likes posts homophobic article discussing Lesbian sexuality and how Lesbians need to learn to appreciate penis so Lesbians and “people with penises” can have “fun” together.
The punch line? The article was posted by a 23-year old woman.
Like, I have been a Lesbian longer than you’ve been alive.
If you think Lesbian Sexuality involves penis, you are doing it wrong.
So, it’s bad enough that, on a theoretical level, a feminist woman cannot follow an analysis about compulsory heterosexuality, etc.
There’s the additional HAVE YOU NO SHAME factor of yet another woman completely failing to consider how this issue of Trans Inclusion IMPACTS LESBIANS.
Lesbians – we must have some cloak of invisibility that makes any kind of “intersectional” analysis inapplicable to us.
Why is it that heterosexual third-wave feminists understand “intersectionality” when it comes to everyone except Lesbians?
You know, Lesbians? Your sisters? Your sisters who love other Women (and by Women, I mean Women – not Trans Women).
A friend alerted me to a discussion on the Guerrilla Feminism Facebook page, run by a Woman named Lachrista Greco. I don’t pay much attention to Feminist Facebook pages, as they tend to ban Radical Feminist discussions, and I had never heard of Greco until two days ago.
Greco made a statement on her page that “Transphobia will not be tolerated” in response to a thread that devolved into a “what about the transwomen” discussion.
And she banned Women. A lot of Women (including me, because I am mean and scary).
The “transphobia” was, of course, Women, many of whom are Lesbian, stating that “transwomen are men.”
This statement – that transwomen are men – is KIND OF REALLY IMPORTANT for Lesbians.
Will Conant has ideas about how Men should treat Women.
Tumblr noticed that Will Conant was pro-rape.

HAI! DON’T I SEEM LIKE A NICE GUY?
MARCO THINKS IT’S FUNNY TO TALK ABOUT THE FACT THAT HE COULD BE A RAPIST [...]
Interesting Discussions going on here about women’s space in connection with a now-ended event called Age Diversity and Gender Fluidity: A forum sponsored by the San Francisco Dyke March.
Me being a hugely “transphobic” evil person, local dykes who live in fear of being ostracized by Gender Queers for having “an unpopular opinion” asked me to comment on the event page, and some Women (and Gay Men) cried “evils” when I said controversial things like “Trans women are men.” [...]
Alan Leo Bounville is walking across the country for the gays and the trans folks.
That’s nice. Recently, I enjoyed an exchange with him on Facebook where he minimizes women’s safety concerns and disregards the fact that Gender Identity legislation enshrines sex stereotypes into law. What a “hero.”
Facebook has removed a photograph of Object! Women Not Sex Objects‘ Spot the Difference birthday card to News International that demonstrated how male-dominated media portrays men and women differently, with men seen as fully human and women relegated to the role of sex object for male pleasure.
In Facebook’s world, Political Speech critiquing Pornography and Exploitation of Women is forbidden.
But ACTUAL PORN is A-OK.
We Know Why.
More Facebook Misogyny here.
Keep talking, Facebook. We Know Why you leave up porn and rape “jokes.”
Because this photograph deserves a 30-day ban:
Facebook hates women.
