If an straight old white guy ran for office and he was pro abortion and helped at his local domestic abuse shelter and took part in BLM marches.

If he ran apposed to a young lesbian black woman but she hated abortion thought domestic abuse survivors were lying for attention and hated black lives matter because she never felt either racism.

Who would you vote for and please keep it civil in the comments.

Sisters, we have lost so much ground in such a short amount of time I feel sick to my stomach.

Disclosure- I want police reform. Overhaul, really. However, a lot of the new ideas are, surprise surprise, violent male friendly. In her address on June 22, Mayor Jenny Durkan explained that for 911 calls, police were necessary for some responses. But others shouldn't qualify. She suggested that mental health specialists, addiction counselors, and domestic violence counselors were better.

Let me make this plain- if a man gets into a brawl with another in a bar, that is a police situation. If a man beats his wife in the kitchen, that is NOT a police situation. Are we clear on that?

So.....when we are talking about domestic violence, we are usually talking about men beating their female partners. Of course, that's not every single situation, but it IS the majority. (And either parent beating their children can result in serious injury or death as well). A friend of mine recently left a violent marriage, and her husband damn near killed her with his bare, obese hands. When the police arrived, he had fully intended to kill her, but he cried and hyperventilated when the police cuffed him. Had they not been there, she would be dead. He wouldn't have been interested in listening to a social worker. He is a narcissist and only responds to fear of physical force. But Mayor Durkin would like it if my friend really, REALLY convinced the 911 line that the police were truly necessary. Are you suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuure a counselor couldn't handle this?

My friend contacted their marriage counselor the next day. The counselor was quite honest and frank, telling her that ethically, she needed to end counseling. Once violence happened, it was standard to stop counseling so as not to prolong the problem, or to delay the victim from leaving. Continuing therapy would only increase the time the victim was near the abuser, meaning the victim was more likely to be murdered. MURDERED.

Since that is the case, I don't know what a "DV counselor" is supposed to do. VIOLENCE being the operative word, the abuser must be physically contained. Abusers usually presume warnings to be bluffs, so it's better to immediately arrest them and remove their means of further attack, such as guns, spying equipment, etc. You can release them later for whatever program, but in that moment? Sorry, but they need to go to the can for a while.

Feminists fought long and hard to force the police to address domestic violence. Even now, with so many cops being wife beaters themselves, it can be hard to get them to take it seriously. Femicide is often preceded by assault and battery. Abusers don't usually reform, especially when they are coddled. The softer consequences, the worse they get. Reform programs are pathetic- the best one, ACTV, still has less than a 50% efficacy rate. I'll bet that's going to decline with the growth of enabling echo chambers in MRA and MGTOW circles. Abusers need enablers, and they have plenty now. They'll have even better ones with Mayor Jenny Durkan.

I can't believe feminists are going to have to fight these very basic battles all over again. We're going to have to do Title IX all over. We're going to have to do separate spaces all over. We're going to have to do ladybrains all over. We're going to have to do abortion rights all over. DV, too?

Of all the things that Mayor Durkin mentioned wasn't a serious crime, it's disturbing that domestic violence was one of the first examples. I'm sure she'd immediately get upset at this interpretation. I'm sure she'd indignantly insist that she does TOO take DV seriously- it's just that she thinks counselors would be more effective, that's all! If that is the case, Mayor Durkin- would you send a counselor to a bar brawl? A black is only a black eye, right?

I genuinely can’t escape this madness.

At this point, I think I have much more in common with a self-aware trans woman (who knows that she is male) than any of these females parading around under the “non-binary” umbrella and using it to distance themselves from (and often assert dominance over) women.

It seems so obvious to me that they are hurt by the expectations of womanhood but rather than DENOUNCE patriarchy, they’re absorbed by its lies and happily turn themselves into medical patients. Question it? Ostracism at high velocity.

These identities really don’t inherently bother me (trans men, non-binary females, etc). Except for the fact that rather than acknowledge this is just a lifestyle they like, they treat it like a refutation of womanhood and pretend that the rest of gals are having a blast, loving life.

It’s a narcissistic, self-absorbed liberal ideology, and it’s gutting our generation of some of its best would-be feminists. I’m so depressed.

I know of a sub that has been newly created for rad fems to blow off steam with a spicy meme.

It is politically incorrect, savage, hilarious, private, female only, and completely inappropriate.

NOT FOR THE EASILY TRIGGERED

Your comments are screened for TRA activity before you are invited. This is to ensure rad fem members are safe to post and comment anything they want in a free speech environment without being reported or banned. Libfems are not welcome here.

Homosexual, bisexual, or straight it doesn't matter how you lean as long as you were born with a vagina, you're a rad fem, and you have a warped sense of humor.

Comment below if this interests you and if you pass the screening you will receive an invitation.

I know this is a women-centered community and I’m a dude, but I hope that’s ok.

Today a dude I went to college with came out as a “trans woman”. A dude with a big fucking beard and a hairy chest. A dude who was born, raised, hit puberty as, and was socialized as a man. A dude who has a cock and fucks like a man. A dude who I knew to be a little creepy at parties and tried to sleep with women who weren’t interested.

And now he thinks he can just up and decide he’s a woman. Honestly I just started laughing when I saw it on social media. It’s just so patently absurd I don’t even know how to respond. He’s the second person I’ve known personally to come out as trans. The other one wasn’t much different — late 20s, depressed, always acted like a dude, then one day BOOM 💥 he wears dresses and cut his nuts off so he’s a woman and a lesbian.

It doesn’t even affect me as I’m not displaced in any way by some white dude claiming to be a woman, but I just wanted to chime in as a dude who thinks these people are out of their gourds.

I’ve had a scan down GC posts and can’t see another post.

A trans adoption sub has been opened offering young trans people who aren’t accepted by their families the chance to be taken under the wing of older trans people.

On the face of it this sounds kind and lovely, but it’s actually disturbing when you think of the safeguarding risks - children talking to anonymous strangers online - and is potentially putting vulnerable children at risk.

On the sub I can’t find an option to report.

Does anyone know if theres a way to report it?

It may be a kind hearted attempt, but it’s massively open to abuse.

Hello,

I'm a mod over at /r/gc_woc, a space for all women of color and allies to discuss race and gender critical theory. I created the sub a while back because the voices of WOC were getting lost and silenced, and I figured we could use a place for us to speak about anti-racism, misogynoir and other topics in a safe space.

If you are interested in joining, please head on over!

Thank you so much.

Hi to everybody reading this! While scrolling through my Instagram this morning, I saw an advertisement for a group called "GenderCool"! It's a group about trans kids, and I'm not really sure how I feel about it! I would love to see this community's opinion on it, since I know you gals are so vocal about LGB(I'm not sure if I put the T in) issues. Please watch a few videos of them, and give me your opinions in the comments! https://www.instagram.com/gendercool/?hl=en

Have a good rest of your day

In almost every sport, men and women are separated. Should we instead have all sports inlcude men and women compete in the same category?
