What's Current: This year's hottest trend — bullying & silencing feminists — continues with zeal

Are you now or have you ever been a TERF?

Hey, did you know that men are not physically stronger than women? And “human beings actually differ very little in their sexual dimorphism”? I mean, female squids are usually twice the size of males, so comparatively, male and female humans are exactly the same! (This article actually makes this argument).

But if it’s all just “pseudo-science,” how do men physically overpower women in so many situations of rape and violence? For example, how was this woman in Turkey “killed for resisting rape?” Female protesters take to the streets of Turkey in outrage over the death of 20-year-old Ozgecan Aslan.

Bryn Mawr College is under attack for referring to itself as a “women’s college.”

Women of color working in male-dominated STEM fields are consistently mistaken for janitors.

NewStatesman contributor and blogger, Glosswitch, has consistently provided us here with fantastic feminist writing. However, after being doxxed, out of concern for her family’s safety, Glosswitch has left twitter and closed glosswatch.com. All thanks to the efforts of liberal “activists.”
