I've never gotten terf vibes from her before. I think she's just ignorant to the rhetoric being adopted tbh. Hopefully she learns.

This is just the same rhetoric R*wling keeps spewing. Absolutely no trans people want "women" erased. Trans-inclusive language, especially in the field of medicine, saves lives.

Sure, "menstruator" or "birthing people" sound particularly dehumanizing I think, in my opinion there could be better language use that also includes trans women. However, those words (in this tweet) are not used much at all at the moment anyway, and this tweet therefore is generalizing something that is a non-issue and helping TERFs attack trans people.

So, miss thing here either does not know **** and just heard something and decided to make it an issue, or she's actively being a TERF. I hope it's the first one, though ignorance in this age is also... unsightly :bear:

And of course JK Rowling immediately retweeted. 
 

I think this will go quite badly for Bette, but I don’t think she was being intentionally transphobic. Something tells me she will have to apologize for this and clarify what she meant after someone at Disney tells her to.

If I read that on Twitter instead of this thread I'd have never thought it's transphobic.. but that's just me idk. I don't think that's what she meant. Either way it's gonna get messy and stuff is going to happen, especially with Hocus Pocus 2 on the way.

That's fair but this language is very terf-y so...I'll just add "potentially" to the thread title and hope she clarifies later

does she have a past of being transphobic, because with what's currently going on i feel like this is more directed towards "pro-lifers" and the men who view women as incubators.

Yeah, so others are reading it the same way :laughga:

But she's consistently been anti-right so I think @Chromatography and @Anderson123 might be right and she was making a point that women are more than incubators. It's a shame transphobes have hijacked feminism so badly that stating that can be interpreted as transphobia.
