More transphobic stickers have been spotted on Edinburgh University Campus.
Oh no! What do they say? 'Burn all transexuals?' 'We know where you perverts live and we're coming to get you!'..?
This is very worrying!
One sticker read “Seahorses ARE horses. Hotdogs ARE dogs. There is no debate. #WarOnWomen.”
Ah. As you were, everyone.
The hashtag has been used to refer to attempts by the Republicans in the US to restrict access to abortion. It has since been co-opted by Trans-Exclusionary Radical Feminists (TERFs) to attack trans women being given the same rights as all other women.
If you think that this is just a 'fringe belief' by a small number of unrepresentative hairy-legged feminists, you're in for a world of surprise, snowflakes!
The stickers were found by Anna, a fourth year Politics and Sociology student earlier this week.What are the odds..?
Elliot Byrom, EUSA’s Trans and Non-Binary Liberation Officer, said: “It’s really disappointing and frustrating. However it is not surprising, with the recent goings-on in Parliament and continued hate campaigns in the press.
“Anyone who sees stickers like this should send photos to campus security, so they can be included in ongoing hate crime statistics that are reported to the police. If anyone affected by this wants support, they can always reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.”Well, it's not like anyone believes the hate crime statistics represent reality anyway, so what's a bit more inflation?
