Now I don't think she'll actually run but she will most definitely try to make herself relevant.


    Outlawing single-sex public spaces is perfectly in keeping with the notion of equality but I've noticed how quickly "feminists" abandon their supposed principles. Anyway, it's called pandering, Polly. Yeah, it sucks when you're not the squeakiest wheel but the time has come when all off these ridiculous interest groups that coalesced around what used to be a working class party could no longer be accommodated. It's the Victim Olympics and the best you can hope for this year is the Bronze.
    I'm just going to say this once: the people who are currently anticipating another Hillary Clinton presidential campaign are all the same geniuses who also predicted that she wouldn't run for president in 2016 and that Mitt Romney would. Mark my words: she will not run. People, and especially people who plan to vote for Trump anyway, really just want this to be a more exciting nominating battle than it actually is because what's actually happening is just that the most boring and predictable candidate, Joe Biden, is simply coasting to victory without hardly trying and that's no fun at all to watch.

    Also, I don't agree with the suggestion that equality for women means giving men unfair athletic advantages over women or that it means maximizing opportunities for the rape of women to occur. If that's what equality means by the common definition today then don't sign me up.

    Also also, you do an awful lot of broad brushing about what feminists in the abstract do and don't support. Just saying.

    Say it once, say it twice...shrug. I just said that I don't think she'll run either. Anyway, she's a career politician obviously looking to remain relevant. You shouldn't be surprised by any of this least of all that the Democrats are pandering to an assortment of deviants and weirdos. What did you think Hillary Clinton would suddenly stand tall on our own? Please.

    First of all, spare us the drama about rape. Thanks. As for the absurdity of transgender make believe...well, thanks for that. BTW, our very own tPF progressives were ridiculing this idea that transgenders were just itching to get into the ladies room so they could molest girls and women. Last I heard only rednecks and crazy evangelicals believed that sort of thing. I'm sure they'll be around soon to remind us. Not.

    The only broad brushing I do with regard to feminism generally is to point out that the term means essentially nothing. Virtually anyone could identify as a feminist.

    Your three-step process in deciding how to respond to a given post of mine:

    1) Decide in advance to disagree regardless of the content.
    2) Read the post.
    3) Explain why everything in it is wrong in the most needlessly aggressive and hostile fashion possible.

    Something like that, right? Be honest.

    Seeing as, as is typical of you, you are responding in less than good faith, I'll just respond to the one thing that I feel merits a reply, which is your second paragraph above: Why do you just assume I'm talking about restrooms specifically? I don't believe that trans-identified people are just natural born predators who are going around looking for women to rape. What I believe is that predatory men who consciously know they are men cynically take advantage of a lot of the policies that the transgender movement advocates for to find such opportunities.

    To illustrate what I mean, let's take prison housing policies as an example. I think that many men who commit violent crimes, especially which involve preying on girls and/or women in some fashion, suddenly decide that they're "trans-women" after they're convicted and in prison so that they can be re-housed in a women's prison for obvious reasons. Then a rape happens, shockingly by that same individual, and people are somehow caught off guard and surprised. The UK, for example, used to have a policy of re-housing male prisoners who decide they're women in women's prisons until recently when, following on a series of resultant rapes, the authorities began to instead house trans-identified inmates in separate prisons. There is, in my mind, simply no way it was a coincidence that 48% of the trans-identified inmates in the nation's prisons were there, in part, for committing sex crimes. Only 3% of actual female inmates in the UK had such convictions, and in fact only about 20% of the men had such convictions as well, so the fact that about half the trans-identified prisoners were sexual predators was a disproportionately high share for either sex. That makes no sense unless you remember that many of these trans identities were conveniently only 'discovered' by biologically male inmates after their convictions. Now it makes sense! Now we can see that there is a cynical motive at play behind these sudden discoveries of many men that they are female.

    Still think that groups like Fair Play for Women who pointed out this phenomenon had/have no legitimate concerns?

    I hate to say this but I think we agree. I think. I read what you are saying is that this whole Trans Indentification things is total nonsense and is being used in disengenious manner, by people to their advantage.

    This is what happens with pseudo science, new wave crap. A man is a man and woman is a woman. I have no medical degree, but I assure you I know how to tell the difference.

    We don't disagree that transgenderism is ridiculous. We disagree over the role feminist ideology has played in its appearance. Anyway, yes, I can be a $#@!. I get that but you aren't special. Y
    ou get treated like everyone else. Do you see me getting along with your male counterparts? I even savage conservatives when they annoy me. I argue with everyone!
    It's kind of ironic how upset that makes a supposedly radical feminist. I'm all about equal treatment, toots. FFS it's a message board!

    Unfortunately, I haven't assumed you were talking exclusively or specifically about bathrooms. That you took up an argument associated with conservative "bigots" reminded me that your fellow tPF progressives mocked the very notion that transgenders would prey on women and children be it in bathrooms or anywhere else. The idea that sexual predators would take advantage of policies accommodating transgenders was dismissed out of hand as "fear-mongering". Where are those defenders of the faith, anyway? They must not have seen your commentary. I'm sure if they had they would have told us how paranoid, hyperbolic and delusional this fear is. Not.

    Polly, it's a $#@!ing prison! ROFL You know they're filled with anti-social savages, right? Maybe that's not the best example? I don't believe that anywhere near a majority of transgenders are criminally-inclined and transitioned to have easier access to female victims. In any case, we agree. Biologically male inmates should not be housed with biologically female inmates at any time. That's just common sense. Even the guards should be all female. I'd like to say that it's incomprehensible to me how any administrator could allow such a thing to happen particularly if the "women" in question had been convicted of sexual crimes but...it's the U.K. They're way ahead over there. Separate housing for these weirdos is best because it's probably more likely that they'll be victims not victimizers.

    See, we can agree.

    Right, but the whole transgender movement rides on the coattails of the radical feminism Polly professes, namely, that gender is a social construct.

    That's the exact opposite of correct. As the term itself suggests, transgenderism hinges on the idea that gender is a real thing. Ideologically, it literally defines womanhood and manhood themselves by stereotypical social roles, i.e. if you are "feminine", you are therefore a woman, etc. The premise is a fundamentally conservative one that plays on ideas you agree with. It is precisely because I reject the idea that men have to be "masculine" and women have to be "feminine" that I'm able to call this bull$#@!.

    Yet it still begs the question.... Why don't all feminists reject transgenderism as a concept? Why is it that only certain radical feminists reject it, and the few who do are ostracized?

    It sounds to me that this has less to do with any traditional views on gender and more to do with political opportunism. The LGBT lobby apparently latches onto whatever societal anomaly of the month wants to have an identity movement.

    It's part of why many gay people have left the lobby -- like Douglas Murray. More and more people are waking up to the fact that the "movement" has been hijacked by lunatics and con artists -- in much the same way that the ACLU has become a political opportunist group, as has the NAACP.

    Unfortunately, this seems to be the nature of many leftist and progressive causes. They sometimes start out as a noble push for equality, but they end up becoming grievance addicts. What begins as advocacy for tolerance becomes demands for approval and conformity.
