Phyllis Schlafly did extensive damage to the Feminist movement in the 1970’s but associating Feminism with Lesbianism. This resulted in scaring mainstream Feminists away, who at that time were for the most part suburban housewives tired of being treated like chattel.
Today’s divide and conquer proponent is Cathy Brennan a woman that identifies as a radical Feminist but vociferously opposes the exsistance of Transgender women as Feminists of any stripe. She is a Feminist separatist to the nth degree. And blatantly calls Transgenter Women rapists or worse at every opportunity.
As a Transgender Man I consider myself a Jedi Level Feminist, as I have seized patriarchy. In attempting to educate Radfems, including Roseanne Barr, about the caustic nature of the divisiveness inherent in excluding Transgender Women from Feminism Brennan herself referred to me on Twitter as a Transgender rapist, and then subsequently blocked me. So much for educating.
What better way to enact the politics of division than to focus on a group that society deems as less than?
Like Schlafly before her Brennan is losing momentum in her efforts to paint Transgender Women as nothing more than men in dresses. The following editorial in Salon calls her and her ilk out for the hate mongering disguised as Feminism she is really selling.
