Why do TERFS insist on portraying themselves as 'radical' when they still assume gender is as simple as what is between one's legs!?

I believe most TERFs don't consider gender to actually exist. This obviously requires gender dysphoria to be not real. I imagine TERFs do it in order to neatly binarize humans into benis/vageen. Which of course also makes intersex folks invisible.

They basically go for gender being a construct or prison that enacts a brutal caste system, but then they themselves become the guardians of that caste system and try to kick down on anyone else trying to be at least a second class citizen. If they understood any of the actual rhetoric and philosophy about gender nihilism, they'd understand that as with there only being two classes, the bourgeois and the proletariat, the 'only two genders' are in actuality men and not-men, and not-men are inherently valued less.

Good point. It struck me within the context of some non-profit work I'm involved with that "at least as many not-men as men" would need to be the solution to an ethics committee membership criteria which previously was "as many men as women"

A bit surprised to see RT reporting this. Isn't Russia even more terrible when it comes to trans stuff?

I'm also noting that yet again it seems trans men don't exist in these people's eyes

Her comments were made in spite of some trans rights, including the right to use the bathroom of their gender, actually being in the Equality Act 2010.

That we still have gendered bathrooms is still quite baffling
