British TERFS who are suddenly all caught up in how we’re doing our fight for abortion rights and bodily autonomy wrong over here cos we do it arm in arm and hand in hand with our trans sisters: FUCK OFF. Where were you any time the last 10 years? Not talking about
#repealthe8th anyway that’s for damn sure. Not even giving oxygen to the @maglaundries issues, nor to Catherine Corless’s research on the #TuamBabies nor even batting an eyelid about the women like Mother A and Ms B dragged through Irish courts about their fundamental rights in birth. And if I owned my house, which I don’t, I’d bet it on not fucking one of them even knowing about the fucking SCANDAL of the ‘Sisters of Charity’ (hollow laughter) being given, GIVEN our National Maternity Hospital AT THE EXPENSE OF THE STATE by this fucking government. Would also bet my house on them not knowing/caring that even their cis sisters in what is allegedly the UK don’t have abortion access if they live in Northern Ireland. So yeah. FUCK OFF and don’t come telling us we’re doing it wrong because we don’t fucking need you. Which is just as fucking well really cos look how utterly uninterested in our struggles you are until we show up your bigotry.
This post is a recap of a thread I posted on Twitter a few days ago; you’ll find it and the interactions here.
PREACH Sinead! When Abortion Support Network announced we were taking the woman sign off our logo as part of a rebrand, the hate I got from TERFs was worse than anything I’ve ever gotten from anti-choicers. With “friends” like these, who needs enemies?
