With the TERF Wars now in full swing, the book is making its place as the first peer-reviewed, scholarly anthology dedicated to them. Carefully dissecting TERF arguments, it shines a light on their flaws and harmfulness. Meanwhile, what do they have but blog posts?

‘Rapid-Onset Gender Dysphoria’ is an unsubstantiated mobilization of scientific-sounding language to oppose gender affirmation and circumvent overwhelming evidence in favor of transition. My new article dissects it and shows how it fails. SHARE WIDELY!

Toxic. Masculinity. Kills. “American men are still resisting wearing masks. The problem, experts say, is they’re afraid of looking weak.”

while my article (: A scientific review, feminist analysis, and alternative ‘embodiment fantasies’ model) resides behind a journal paywall, I've uploaded a copy of the manuscript to my "trans psychology" webpage, so please check it out!

Trans women pose no threat to cis women, but we pose a threat to them if we make them outcasts |

I have some huge news to share. For the last TWO YEARS I have been working with and on a peer-reviewed academic collection, responding to anti-trans activism in the UK and beyond. I'm so happy to announce the release of TERF Wars today.

This is a thread on our new book 'TERF Wars: Feminism and the fight for transgender futures', where I'll say a bit about the context behind it, the format (for those who might not know the weird details of academic publishing), and the contents.

Cis scholars working in trans studies who write positionality statements about how their being an outsider to the trans community makes them better situated to study us 🥴

I’m case there was any doubt about how insidious reporting by the Mail on Sunday is around trans issues - today’s article citing research to which clinician Polly Carmichael contributed, implies the OPPOSITE to the research findings & puts words in her mouth! 😳

Send Dawn all the love. Read her tweets about the incident. She is having a rough one, for many different reasons all related to racist police officers.
