“Twitter has been flooded with controversy for the last week about the RadFem2012 conference, currently booked into the Conway Hall, which announced its membership as restricted to “women born women and living as women” (it originally said “biological women”, but that got changed after much mockery). This disturbed the trans community, which it is meant to exclude, but also those feminists who regard trans-exclusion as something other than radical.”
It just seems so strange to me to consider yourself a feminist, and all that stands for, and to go on and not consider transpeople…
I understand people having certain issues that personally affect them, and maybe not putting as much energy into other ones. But to blatently work against people who are fighting battles that are somewhat related to yours?
