“TERFery is predominantly a belief of privileged women - in other words, the women who have benefited most from feminism's successes - and yet who have come to define womanhood by suffering. And many of them have suffered! but when social progress reveals that suffering to be something we can decrease or eradicate - when conditions for women get better - it threatens that notion of suffering as inherent”

“it's no coincidence that TERF rhetoric increased just as feminist circles were finally beginning to have productive conversations about intersectionality & how historical feminist successes had largely benefited white women, straight women, cis women, wealthy women, able-bodied women, neurotypical women. Suddenly, a whole bunch of white feminists were told, 'hey, perhaps your voices aren't the ones that need centering right now. perhaps you should pass the mic.'”
