I hold Antifa, the Trans Rights Activists (TRAs), and the Men’s Rights Activists (MRAs), all under the same disdain. All three groups subjugate women, LGB community, and punch down. All three groups claim to be wokie anarchists, but are basically #wokescolds, doing the patriarchy’s work for them.
All three groups have documentation of them threatening violence and abusing women and other oppressed groups (gays, lesbians, children, and the elderly) who couldn’t have less power in this country. Why are these groups beating up on the powerless? Meanwhile, they attribute all sorts of power to feminists that we don’t have. They say we have financial backing, but I’ve yet to see even one feminist being backed by big pharma, or the ‘healthcare’ industry, as the TRA is. In fact, speaking out has gotten many women fired from their jobs, so if anything, we lose money in the bargain.
Radical feminism is not astroturf, but those other three groups are. They have big money behind them. They claim feminists who question the ideology are ‘erasing’ trans people, which is nonsense; unless you can believe a person can be erased with words, which is just as fanciful thinking as believing a man can magically become a woman or a woman a man. I have no use for magical thinking, and in lawsuits all over the western world, the powers that be are doing their best to make sure the nonsensical delusional pseudo-science dreamed up by this group is used as indoctrination in schools and other groups. These groups also have something else in common which proves they are astroturf: They are all covered positively in the mainstream press. CNN has even lauded Antifa for beating up on journalists and old people.
I’m against it. 100%.
All three groups call feminists ‘haters’, and ‘transphobes’ and ‘TERFS’, any feminist group such as WoLF also is labeled a ‘hate group’. This is for daring to discuss women’s hard-won rights and protections. Women are expected to shut up and let men into our safe spaces, take over our sports, our political groups, and stand by while children are groomed for ‘transing’ which benefits no one but big pharma and other corporate entities. Failing to speak out means that this ideology will continue to be entrenched into our culture. This includes toddlers being exposed to adult entertainment fetish (to teach them ‘inclusion’, because toddlers are such bigots you know), teenagers exposed to the most violent porn, as normalized, prostitution also normalized and even held up as a something to aspire to (and called ‘sex work’ to make it more palatable), and worse. I don’t think this is progressive, I think it’s a sign of societal collapse. And those 3 groups are helping force this ideology on all of us by trying to shut us up. That’s how I know they are not anarchists, but rather work directly for the people already in charge.
