Whoa! I didn't know I was an azaelia banks fan until this very moment.

[–] TheEthicalHedonist 29 points (+29|-0)

I was thinking to myself, “2020 has been a helluva year and now you find yourself agreeing with Azaelia Banks?!?” I don’t want to know what comes next

Yesterday Malala announced that she supports a friend running for the conservative party in the UK and people on twitter had a meltdown with tons of "wtf 2020???" and "Malala is canceled!" comments. I'm like... duh, of course she agrees with the party that believes women exist*. Just look at her history.

2020's been wild.

*And even if she doesn't support the party itself, she at least supports her friend who has differing views - something that wasn't allowed in her previous life. Something she got shot for in her previous life. And now she's being demonized for wrongthink in the western world where she got a Nobel Peace Prize only 6 years ago. Insane.

Where's the lie?

[–] Luckystar 12 points (+12|-0) Edited

That's what really gets me about all this stuff. The response is never "This is false, here's why". It's just cancellation and deplatforming because they know that it is all true, they just don't wanna hear people say it

I know I shouldn't be, but I am really shocked that her account got suspended for this. This is just some pop stars opinion and perspective. People are welcome to disagree with her. In my parents generation, the Left fought hard for the right to free speech to oppose the Vietnam war. Now the left is increasingly comfortable with and even celebrating outright censorship (although in practice, it is usually just the censoring of women, specifically).

blacklivesmatter => blacktranslivesmatter => translivesmatter

We all knew it was going to happen, it was just a matter of time.

[–] Carrots90 [OP] 33 points (+33|-0)

My next step is TransLiesMatter

[–] [Deleted] 21 points (+21|-0)

And in the words of Dave Chappelle - "We all know trans is getting tons of attention because it's all rich white dudes doing it"

Rich white guys taking over black lives matter. Seems about right.

[–] [Deleted] 7 points (+8|-1)

It’s a plantation. Exploitative and getting black people to do all the work for Rich white men...again.

I will never not share these receipts:

Founder of Black Trans Lives Matter raped and tried to involuntarily impregnate a TiF because he wanted her to bear his "non binary black babies". Almost like they actually do understand how biology works 🤔

Wow she sure summed that up well. Think I’m starting to like her.

Azealia kinda just says whatever she feels like at any given moment. I don't think this really means she sympathizes with the gender critical worldview. It is proof of a double standard as I doubt any misogynistic TRAs have lost their twitter accounts lately.

[–] feralfeminist 29 points (+29|-0)

Butttttt the fact she felt like saying this particular thing is somewhat encouraging.

[–] marmaladetoast 9 points (+9|-0)

She's been pretty homophobic in the past, so I'll just watch from afar.

[–] MelMarieCurebee -4 points (+3|-7)

How was she homophobic? At the end of the article, it sounds like she's got a clear distinction of homophobia vs how she uses language.

[–] [Deleted] 19 points (+19|-0)

Purity activism is great when its your leading activist. But its good to have non GC people talk on GC topics. Men literally taking over female spaces is a very easy topic to have a GC view on because even most libfems want that privacy from men. Its very unlikely the majority of women will ever care for other GC topics.

[–] marmaladetoast 6 points (+6|-0)

Considering now many of the rights women gained in the US are in danger now, I have hopes that will change.

[–] Nona_Biba 25 points (+25|-0)

DAMN she went HARD.

And she's so right too- WHY can't I say my boobs make me suicidal and have an augmentation provided with tax dollars?

[–] Mafalda 21 points (+21|-0)

Or get a reduction without having to prove to a man that you won’t regret it, your husband won’t mind, you are in serious agony all the time. And I mean PROVE. They won’t just take your word for it. You gotta really fight.

[–] MelMarieCurebee 15 points (+16|-1)

A friend of mine fritzed out when I asked him what the difference was between a trans woman getting breast implants and a flat-chested woman getting breast implants. "It's DIFFERENT!" he nearly shrieked. Oh yeah? How so? I asked. "How could you say it isn't different?". I reiterated my initial point that trans women were just chasing some arbitrary extreme notion of feminine body types, and what was different about a woman chasing that, too? I'm so glad she said that.

[–] Carrots90 [OP] 13 points (+13|-0)

I always love it when someone says what I wish I was brave enough to say.

Let them try to hide behind women of color with her.

Let them try to hide behind the LGB with her.

She is fierce

[–] [Deleted] 20 points (+20|-0)

Even a broken clock is right twice a day 🤷🏻‍♀️

Surprised I haven't seen a post on ONTD about this, they love screaming about ~transphobia~ over there.

[–] [Deleted] 18 points (+18|-0)

Yep. That community and their reaction to JKR (and the subsequent silencing of users who dared to ask reasonable questions) is what peaked me.

[–] [Deleted] 12 points (+12|-0) Edited

For me it was r/popheads when they called JKR a terf back in December - that was the first time I ever heard the word and ended up finding gendercritical 10 minutes later during a google search. I can just imagine what ONTD thinks. Damn. It's probably best for my sanity if I never go back to either of those places.

[–] ciorafinska 2 points (+2|-0)

It was actually ONTD that got me questioning trans stuff and directed me to r/GenderCritical a year or two ago. I think that in the first few JKR posts from this summer, there were quite a few GC comments mixed in but then there was a shift in the later JKR posts where most of those users had disappeared and all of the comments were horrible.

[–] tymps 1 points (+1|-0) Edited

Their recent swing back to being overwhelmingly pro-TRA is what finally made me quit looking at that site. There was a period of time when there were many gender critical users and the conversations were productive, but now it's back to whining about transphobia and "TERFs," and I also noticed a real uptick in misogyny/sexist slurs again. It's too bad. I think most of the GC users left and now the few who remain don't seem to speak their minds as openly anymore, probably knowing that they'd be dogpiled and vilified if they did (and I can't even blame them for staying out of it - people on there can be relentless when they disagree with you).

[–] Carrots90 [OP] 4 points (+4|-0)

I don’t know much about her. Do you not like her otherwise? I only just heard about her with this

[–] [Deleted] 5 points (+5|-0)

I'm a bit pushed for time at the mo cos I'm working from home (hop on here periodically throughout the day) but her wiki is a good place to start: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Azealia_Banks#Controversies

[–] ThisReality 5 points (+6|-1)

Oof. She had a rough childhood to say the least.

I've read somewhere else that she's bipolar. There's clearly some level of mental illness going on, not just anger, but she puts together the best insults and rants.

[–] MelMarieCurebee 1 points (+3|-2)

She sounds pretty solidly self-defensive. I admire that in her. She defends herself and her people fiercely, and it sounds like almost all of the "controversies" around her are people frowning on that.

[–] shveya 12 points (+12|-0)

She went out of her way to be emotionally and financially supportive to TiMs, and all she got for it was sexually harassed. Here are her first peaking tweets from a while back. https://imgur.com/a/yw8FJnj

So weird, they're her "sisters" but they act just like men. Can't wrap my head around it.

[–] shveya 4 points (+4|-0)

It sounds (to me) like they were putting on a fake pleasant attitude with her at first, before showing their true colors. I've had several men do this to me in the past.

[–] SheTastesPurple 9 points (+9|-0)

So black lives does not matter, only trans rights matter seems. Rape threats to her are fine, but her tweet isn't. Fantastic.

[–] [Deleted] 4 points (+5|-1)

That was what the trans turds wanted. Create a plantation whereby black people work for white mens privileges but no one notices because these men are wearing dresses.

[–] SheTastesPurple 3 points (+3|-0)

Perfect TRA world: all transwomen are rich, transmen does not exist, all women are there for breeding and nothing more, people of color working to make food and cloths to them, homosexuals exist only to validate them and suck their dicks.

Sorry for my French, I am mad today :D

[–] Amareldys 2 points (+2|-0)

What are her songs like? Does she have any appropriate for children I could buy on itunes?

[–] [Deleted] 3 points (+3|-0)

LOL her music is definitely not appropriate for children. But if you're curious you could listen to 212. It's her most popular song.

[–] Carrots90 [OP] 0 points (+0|-0)

I have no idea what her songs are, lol.

I’m a fan for her calling it like it is

[–] MelMarieCurebee -1 points (+5|-6)

Appearing on Sirius XM, she said: ‘When I use the word ‘f**’ it comes from a feminist point of view, not a homophobic point of view.’ Radio host Xorje Olivares then asked the musician, who is bisexual, to define her usage. ‘The word ‘f’ came to me from my mother. And it was never a thing about a guy being gay. It was always just a man who hates women,’ she continued.‘You can be gay or straight. You can be a straight f… Fs are men who want to bring women down, f* with their heads, control them. ‘You called me a b*, I’ll call you a f**. What’s the difference?’ Azealia was adamant she wasn’t being homophobic, adding: ‘To be homophobic would imply that I’m, like, “I can’t sit next to a gay man because Imma catch the gay, but I already caught the gay.’

Proof that women and feminists don't get to set the meaning of words in our society. I think this is a legitimate use of the word - a distinction between being gay and being a man who hates women. How great would it be if women got access to a slur for use against people who hate us? I first heard from an old lesbian friend of mine that lesbians commonly "know" that gay men have among them some deeply misogynistic men; when you have no loving relationships with women in your life, there's no great motivation around to get you to see women as people if you don't already. The fact that she also uses it on straight men is a plus. I dream of a world where we all could have people understand this meaning of the word.

[–] DaughtersOfLilith 11 points (+11|-0)

Truly, we do need a word that functions as a slur against men who hate women. And I hear her point, but I would never be comfortable using that word for this. We need another.

[–] MelMarieCurebee -2 points (+2|-4)

I genuinely don't believe women in my lifetime would have access to a slur for men who hate women that was invented by women. I would love it if that were true, but I don't think it will be true. I think we stand a much better chance of reappropriating an existing slur. I doubt I'd ever personally say it, because I don't call people slurs in general, but for the kind of people who do use them (Azalea Banks, eg), I feel like it works for them.

Proof that women and feminists don't get to set the meaning of words in our society.

This I agree with, and TRAs are corrupting the power of our language like no other movement before them.

I won't sling f*****.

That's just me being me. Know what I've started doing tho? Calling out gay men for using b****. Because I'm fucking over it and I won't have the same gay men who are telling me 'TWAW' use a word that was never theirs.

I call it what it is --- misogyny. They get no pass with that word around me anymore. No shits given about how it's part of their "culture." Full stop.

(edits for format)

[–] MelMarieCurebee 2 points (+5|-3)

I support all that. I don't even think I would use a slur in any case. But at some point women have to admit that we're terrified of not being nice.

[–] girl_undone 5 points (+5|-0) Edited

I don't appreciate being told that I'm being "too nice" for not promoting bigotry against gay men.

What a false dichotomy, and what bullshit.
