    The Last Acceptable Prejudice will likely be against pedophiles.

    There will always be parents scared for their children and even mental health professional have difficulty treating it like a psychiatric disorder.

    Aw, that sucks.

    Good luck to you though.

    Will someone else be joining the SGU to fill your boots?

    Does that even count as doxxing though, when they are giving you their private information?

    • That would be one question I have about this, from a purely definitional standpoint…

      Even then, though – say someone sent Rebecca a threatening message, and she dug up the person’s real name, is that wrong? I don’t think so.

    “Anyone with female sex organs has the potential to seek an abortion.”

    Scratch that, it’d be more accurate to say:

(Yes, men can absolutely suffer from the consequences of patriarchy & toxic masculinity, but they cannot be the direct victims of sexism.) So…[Read more]

      • As a transman who is likely able to become pregnant, I agree with you. The reasons for people’s objections still come from sexism. Transgender men and trans masculine people can still be victims of sexism and restrictions on our reproductive rights are part of that.

      • I wonder if it would be more accurate to say sexism is both against women and people/things coded feminine*, so it can intersect with transmen and non-binary people with functioning uteri and ovaries (organs coded feminine). If you consider male = default, care for these organs (which includes fertility and pregnancy) is separate from ‘normal…[Read more]

        • As a cisman, the main thing for me to do on this subject is listen, so I’m happy to hear from women, transmen, or anyone else who has a different perspective from me on this, but it seems to me that sexism could be pretty much any discrimination against anyone other than a cis male?

          And then it seems to me that most people who are sexist and…[Read more]
