trans-terrific-deactivated20121 asked: Are you seriously sticking up for radical feminists right now? You're fucking doing that right now? Check out some radfem blogs (I suggest you start with Tumblr's own bugbrennan then move your way over to the Pretendbian Wordpress for a quick overview of the kind of people you're defending) & see if you still see slamming radscum is wrong.

Yikes, okay, waded into this debate without full context. If these are the folks OP is talking about then yeah. Not cool. 

I’ve known radical feminists in my life who would be appalled by that kind of transbashing and, well, misogyny. That’s not what the movement should stand for, and that’s not equality.

Post deleted, and I stand corrected. Thank you.
