What is Gender Critical Feminism?


People may be coming here looking for information about Gender Critical Feminism. I do not have any great knowledge of the subject and am not a representative of any movement, community or belief system.

Gender Critical Feminism is not an organisation, there is no manifesto. Its a set of ideas developed by a women, in groups and individually. There is no GC Feminism central I can point you to. As far as I know you cannot do a course in Gender Critical Studies so there are no recommended text books.

This is a list of what I've read a lot of.

Neither of these are esay to read if your a bloke. Both have been accused of man hating, to which they'd probably reply along the lines of "Yeah So?".

Which is fair enough, when you read enough GC Feminist stuff, you realize that women have been shat on by men and why should any particular woman worry about whether your a nice guy really,

I think both have had a justified pop at me at some point.

  1. I think you can add the website transgender reality (link here: https://transgenderreality.com/ ). I am not sure if you know them, but if you don't, it is really good.

I seem to be under attack by a spam bot from a washing machine maintenance company based in an Arabic speaking country.

If I don't moderate comments my blog comments will get filled with Arabic washing machine service contract spam.

If you really have a comment feel free to add it, I will try and get round to moderating every day or so.

Abusive, rude or nasty coments may be removed. Or they may be left to discredit whatever cause you feel you are supporting.

Boring repetitions of trans gender orthodoxy will be removed.
