“The phrase not only fetishises black bodies at a time when black people are directly asking to not be killed, but additionally places a value judgement upon women of all races; both those that are absent from the protest and those which choose to promote such slogans.

This week's most ridiculous 'trans-centric' publication comes from Equity, the 'UK trade union for creative practitioners'.
Cambridge University Student Union has recently published a guide on "How to Spot TERF Ideology" .

But beneath the 'lols' isn't this vilification of a middle-aged woman all a little misogynistic?
