It seems that even when liberals are trying to espouse their “progressive” values they are upsetting some portion of their base, as transgenders are angry that Saturday’s Women’s March used images of female reproductive organs that they claim “isolated the transgender community”.
According to Marie Solis of MIC.com, who penned an article titled “How the Women’s March’s ‘genital-based’ feminism isolated the transgender community”, the Women’s March protesters who used their pink “pussy hats” as a symbol of their feminist movement were insulting to transgender females (born as males) who will never have real female organs.
While clever, Suh’s pussy hats set the tone for a march that would focus acutely on genitalia at the expense of the transgender community. Signs [like this] all sent a clear and oppressive message to trans women, especially: having a vagina is essential to womanhood.
“The main reason I decided not to go was because of the pussy hats,” 28-year-old Jade Lejeck said in an interview Sunday night. “I get that they’re a response to the ‘grab them by the pussy’ thing, but I think some people fixated on it the wrong way.”
Lejeck, a trans woman from Modesto, California, said the hats signaled to her that there would be other trans-exclusionary messages at the women’s marches.
She expected her local march to have its fair share of trans-exclusionary radical feminists, known as TERFs. As Lejeck described it, there are two categories of TERFS: One is the accidental TERF — “the ones who have signs that equate womanhood with having a vagina,” she said. The other category, Lejeck explained, includes feminists who argue trans women are actually men in disguise trying to infiltrate their spaces.
Lejeck decided she would avoid both kinds of TERFs by abstaining from Modesto’s women’s march altogether; she had grocery shopping to do anyway.
“I believe there’s a lot of inequality that has to do with genitals — that’s not something you can separate from the feminist movement,” Lejeck said. “But I feel like I’ve tried to get involved in feminism and there’s always been a blockade there for trans women.”
The liberals have descended to such a level of insanity that they are now “eating their own”, moving so far to the radical left that they cannot possibly appeal to a wide base of voters. Now the trans community is fighting the feminist movement for not being “inclusive” of men who try to morph themselves into women, while the women’s rights activists think they are just “men in disguise” trying to infiltrate their movement. Transgenders, who want to be thought of as women even though they were born as men and will never have the parts (or genes) that make someone a female, are salty over the fact real women are celebrating their women parts.
You couldn’t make this stuff up if you tried, and reality is truly stranger than fiction these days.
This goes to show that even the liberals cannot please the minority groups that they claim to represent, as inevitably someone will always be offended by someone else’s actions, and as we have seen with distinct clarity this year the leftists do not know how to cope with differences of opinions in a healthy manner.
