Update:

Lesbian activists block Pride in London march to protest against trans women
Gay Star News (UK)
A group of lesbian activists blocked the start of the Pride in London march today (7 July) in protest against transgender women.

A group of eight women stormed the parade route without accreditation. Then five of them laid down on the road in front of the parade and draped a banner over them.

The banner read: ‘Transactivism erases lesbians’.

They then blocked the parade route for about 10 minutes. One of the activists shouted out: ‘A man who says he’s a lesbian is a rapist’

The group also had a banner that said ‘Lesbian = female homosexual’, as well as flyers with the organization ‘Get the L out’ as the headline.

The flyer states: ‘The trans movement is… coercing lesbians to have sex with men. We firmly condemn this vicious form of anti-lesbianism disguised as progress.’

Umm, yeah. Bitches be crazy.

I don't suppose there's a gay male equivalent to TERFs is there? Like a TEGM?

If you're not into trans women or trans men, then don't date them. An observant person can usually tell. And if you truly can't tell the difference, then how exactly are you being harmed? They seem to take the mere existence of these people as some kind of affront. The very definition of intolerance there. I suppose that trans people should be honest about the fact with their sexual partners though.

Whether or not any given gay man would have a trans man as a sex partner (it seems to me that most would not), there is no ideological movement of gay men only to exclude them from.

The gay rights movement includes anyone who is for gay rights.

Even straight people.

Now that I think of it, "men's rights activists" probably would exclude trans men, but you don't hear about it because they are not trying to get in.

Latest BS on my feed today:

A conservative friend tried to argue that "Bisexuals" were discriminatory because they only acknowledged two genders.

It would have been a genuinely funny troll if I didn't think he meant it literally.
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

Did you ask him how many genders he thinks there are?


Also I think maybe 'bisexual' is going out of fashion as an identity, and maybe your friend hints at why. There's so many more labels people use these days. There's "pansexual" or "polysexual" or just queer, which is sort of a catch-all for anything other than straight. Although it is still the "B" in LGBT.
