    I used to know Boo Price. I am deeply disappointed in her. Her club, the Montclair Women’s Cultural Arts Center, had wonderful music events, but didn’t want bisexual women like me involved, unless we were with a female partner. MWCAC was a bastion of upper middle class white privilege.

    I think the scariest thing is that they(TERFs) wish we would all die. I wish that they would realize that just because a woman is trans, that in no way makes her any less of a woman. I don’t hate cis people, but sometimes some of them scare me.

    What I think is unprintable. How could they? They are no different then MRA advocates, James Dobson, and Phyllis Schlafly.
