Bindel Still Apparently Obsessed With Writing Barely Coherent Crap About Transsexualism|
"Anyway, what's with the "having to have sex like a woman/pee sitting down ruins lives" subtext? I know I'm not a celebrated feminist writer like what you are, but that sounds a bit misogynist to me."
Much as i agree with the general gist of the Julie Bindel is a muppet sentiment this statement struck me as remarkably easy for you to make, what with being a woman and not getting what the fuss about having a functional penis would be.
That's a fair point. Perhaps I phrased that part badly - I object to the underlying implication she seems to make that having female genitalia is some sort of fate worse than death.
...and by "female" genitalia, I mean the genitals of women/people who ID as female. I think she's falling into the same nasty radfem implication that anything male or masculine represents a better, more authentic state than anything female or feminine.
Have edited the article, rewording this bit. Does that read better?
