Campaign to stop calling hateful transphobic bloggers TERFs (Trans Exclusionary Radical Feminists) and start calling them TEAs (Trans Exclusionary Assholes) because
- These people are neither radical nor feminists
- They are all assholes
- They would be best in boiling water.
And which particular strand of feminist thought do you ascribe to that hasn’t been heavily influenced by Gloria Steinam, Andrea Dworkin and Germaine Greer?
Oh here we go. Literally these are exact three people that people who know feck all about feminism jump at straight away every single time.
Let’s put aside the fact that the youngest of these three women is dead and the other two were born in the 30s.
Were they influential in second wave, 70s and 80s feminism? Of course they were, they were saying wild, out-there things that no one had said before.
That is not the same thing as being accepted though. Some of their work is worth going over, some yeah not so much. And mostly they’ve been left by the intellectual wayside by anyone worth taking seriously.
But ideas that didn’t change in 40 years are not radical.
Frankly Judith Butler is more influential in academic feminism than any of those three.
