Internet Drama

Fifteen dollars, little man…

For a while now, I’ve been following the Skeptical OB on Facebook. She was a fairly decent source of information, especially when it dealt with things such as midwifery and home births and the like. But that came to a screeching halt today; it seems the good doctor decided to go full TERF.

Never go full TERF. Ever. Hell, never go an eighth TERF. Going any level of TERF is sheer ridiculousness.

The comments are the usual sort of sewer you might see when it comes to transrights. But thankfully, there are some intelligent people in the mix. I’ve even been blocked by some particularly loudmouthed TERFs, which makes me happy. If I got under their skin that much, I must have been doing something right.

That’s a small consolation. I feel like a complete jackass for sharing her posts. I’m more than a little tempted to go through my timeline and delete every single one of them. I don’t want that sort of bullshit anywhere near me.

I may not be perfect, but I try to be decent. It’s all I ask of others. Why is it so damn hard for so many?

About Silverwynde

I'm a Transformers fan, Pokémon player, Brewers fan and all-out general nerd. I rescue abandoned Golett, collect as many Bumblebee decoys and figures as I can find and I've attended every BotCon--official and non--since 1999. I'm also happily married to a fellow Transfan named Prime and we were both owned by a very intelligent half-Siamese cat, who crossed the Rainbow Bridge on June 16, 2018. We still miss him. But we're now the acting staff of a Maine Coon kitty named Lulu, who pretty much rules the house. Not that we're complaining about that.
