Gender critical in a binary world

This post has now moved to here.

I’m well aware that identifying as a gender critical feminist is going to have put some people off me already. Possibly some will have decided I’m transphobic and written off everything I have to say already. If you think that gender critical feminism and transphobia go hand in hand but have read this far, bear with me, I want to point a few things out about myself.

Magical vaginas

I have to confess, I got far too much pleasure from writing that title.

In case you’ve missed it a quick recap. A female games developer (who has already been getting a lot of hate for daring to be a woman in the games industry and having the gall to point out the games industry has a problem with sexism) split up with her boyfriend. Said boyfriend then wrote a blog and went to 4chan to accuse her of cheating on him with 5 guys. One of these guys was a games journalist who had given her positive reviews. Now people are up in arms about her corrupting the games industry.

Binary is for computers: The rewrite

This post has now moved to here.

I wrote a blog post the other day on gender identity and it’s been bugging me ever since as I didn’t feel it was very well written. That’s the problem with writing blog posts at gone midnight after a day of screaming children. So as my husband has taken the kids to his mum’s today I thought I attempt a rewrite that makes a little more sense.

If I fail to make any more sense here though, please read this post and realise that I agree with every word of it.

This post has now moved to here.

Very short post as I know there are others out there who can make these points much more eloquently than I can, but this has had me in a rage all day so felt I should write it out.

Obviously the big story right now is the shooting in Isla Vista, and the responses have been all too predictable.

This is my fucking body

This post has now moved to here.

On behalf of women everywhere, our bodies belong to us. No one else. It doesn’t matter how much someone else might think they are entitled to do what they like with and to the body of someone else, it’s not their fucking right.

I’d like to say this blog is about one news story, but it’s not. It’s about a whole load. It’s also about off the news and in everyday life for many of us. Just today I have read a whole load of things which all boil down to women not being allowed bodily autonomy.
