Okay, I was asked to drop it at shake's, and I'll respect that.

But what i really want to poke at here, among other things, is how it is that so many third wave feminists, who profess to be trans "allies", can know enough about Daly to praise her, without knowing about her transphobia and worse? Like, once you start looking into trans-oppressing aspects of feminism, Daly's name comes right up, doesn't it? So feminists who are down to eulogize her, have not done that, or not listened when trans people talk about how feminism has hurt them?


And somehow, although women's studies classes and feminism are still teaching and honoring some of Daly's contributions to feminism, most of them are ignoring or unaware of her biggest legacy to feminism, hatred of trans people.

Am i not seeing how this doesn't prove some pretty serious bullshit on the part of "Feminism"?


And I am like, "oh GAWD, not shakesville, too" I still had expectations for shakesville
