This matter was brought to my attention yesterday via a video by the delightful Jammidodger on YouTube. In it he explains how the "LGB" alliance is attacking both trans men and women as being responsible for "the extinction of Lesbians" and aside from that not even being a thing they have absolutely no basis in anything even remotely resembling fact to make such a claim and yet the UK media is giving them an unreasonably large platform to this blatant hate speech under the guise of "promoting gay rights" when all it is about is attempts to gain traction for trans erasure. This has already begun to happen in earnest in the UK and if you think that this is not your problem because you live elsewhere well then guess again as legal precedent set recently in the UK courts is already being used as a political lynchpin to legitimize transphobic hate speech in political arenas all across the world. This is the video if anyone wishes to watch it, it is very pro trans in terms of who is presenting it and how but a trigger warning is being issued here.
So the problem here is that these groups, which are by every definition hate groups, are hiding behind the flimsy guise of free speech when in fact what they are doing is by every definition hate speech and while you can never stop this vocal minority from espousing such views it is completely unacceptable for media outlets to be providing them with such a large platform or any platform at all. The same can be said for YouTube in which videos abound that are just bald faced transphobic diatribes that breach YouTubes policies on such content and yet they allow it to flourish. I will link a petition below and while it may seem like a token gesture I urge anyone who reads this to sign it as we need to start really pushing back against these sort of attempts to erase us from our own community and start petitioning governments to have this classed for what it is; Hate speech and not free speech as this type of bitter hate is not protected by free speech at all which does not extend to being able to debate someone's right to exist. Unfortunately if this is allowed to continue then it will get worse and by the time it gets really bad it may already be too late to do anything about it.

Agreed Michelle! The UK is especially bad with this. Our friend on here, Alice is a fierce fighter for trans rights. She has told me a lot of what they face there. I have spent some time recently calling out some on Youtube. The saddest is the post op trans folk who want to say, "I got mine, but the rest of you ( who don't want surgery or don't pass or are non binary) are just pushing it too far!" I see red but stay calm while calling them out. They are having an affect. They banned any kind of treatment for minors. This means forcing them into puberty. Forcing them into puberty, so then they can be hated on for not fitting in. Horrible crap going on.

Absolutely Moni, this is the beginning of trans identities being legislated out of existence and it is a slippery slope, if we allow this to continue then it won't just be kids being refused access to blockers; it will become increasingly harder for anyone to access anything and we need our combined voices to be a lot louder than our detractors and the reality is that there are more of us, we just have to speak up. I have also noticed a small subculture of especially younger trans women who were fully transitioned in their early twenties, accessed blockers, etc. that think that because they have "fully transitioned" (bull shit term that one in the medical sense of the word) then this is no longer their fault and this "fuck you Joe I'm okay" attitude is becoming more prevalent in online circles and it is effectively acting like a cancer eating the trans community alive from the inside out at a time when we are under serious assault from hate groups as I mentioned in my initial post. Time to start working together girls.

There's a video out there by Blaire White (ugh) who is non op trans, who argues that trans people, not up to her standard (I'm so pretty) should go to male prison when they commit crimes. I argued, well maybe I should argue for only post op's to go to female jails, leaving your pretty butt in the male jail? She is so willing to sell out others who make different choices or who can't afford the massive surgery she had. Self hating trans!

blair white is a toxic, transphobic, misogynistic waste of skin and her videos should just be taken down. What gets me is that she actually thinks that these bigots will not include her in their push for trans erasure because she vilifies her own community, like, what frickin planet is this girl living on? There is nothing worse than transphobia that is directed at you from someone who should know better and as Jammidodger points out, this LGB alliance have just repackaged the homophobia that they struggled so hard against into transphobia and are now doing the exact same thing to us that was done to them when they should know what it is like, just really really sad and disappointing.

This is the silliest thing I've ever heard. I swear, people are getting so board with this Covid lockdown, they are seeing things that just aren't there, and manifesting the dumbest, unwarranted, undocumented BS ever. Their feeble brains must be literally withering away. I'd be willing to bet a lot of these transphobes don't really believe in what they are saying. Most are jumping on the bandwagon with dreams of catching their 15 minutes of fame.

Sorry! Just ranting.

Would that I could see this as simply silly and misguided bigots airing their garbage opinions Donica, it’s far more serious than that though. This movement has already backed a court case that has now seen trans kids denied access to blockers and now emboldened by that they already petitioning courts for yet more legal precedent and are already beginning to find an audience amongst politicians and similar groups across the world. I am also quite sure that they do not believe what they are saying for the truth of their opinions is much, much, worse and if you look into their real rhetoric it gets real extreme real fast ranging from wanting trans women registered as sex offenders right down to wanting selective abortion legalised to abort male foetuses so that they can control the male population at 10-15%. This is extremist behaviour and a real threat to our way of life and few seem to care about this or see it as a real issue. It won’t stay funny for much longer I can assure you.

It's unfortunate when someone sets themselves up as the arbiter of standards and judge of what is acceptable. It often turns into "you don't meet MY standards, and are therefor Other, Less Than, and cast out to the margins.

We get quite enough of that from Western culture as it is.

As I wrote in another contribution, intersex people are more accepted by others. I am even in contact with some TERFs, trying to convert them to accept trans women. I think it worked with a couple of them.
In my opinion the anti trans ovement among feminists is funded by alt right and extreme religious groupings, who were able to infiltrate the feminist movement.
