I’m not linking, but they’re whining (falsely) that Julia Serano “assumes as the sun rises in the west” that empowering women equals empowering femininity.
No, Ms. Serano builds her case pretty carefully. She demonstrates that femininity being strongly societally associated with womanhood (because, well, duh), the denigration of femininity degrades all women, feminine-identified or not; so empowering femininity, by extension, empowers all women - this should be pretty self-evident as well, since the current state of affairs provides women a false choice: Emulate men and be exalted ONLY to the degree to which your emulation is successful, or be women and be degraded.
The TERFs, however, want to force this choice down our throats without the ability to question.
They don’t need to be good at lying. Everyone they’re talking to already believes them.
This is what deciding intersectionality is an unnecessary distraction does for you. It means your theory will always be incomplete because it literally focuses on one issue and not the way it interacts with anything else.
