    I’m aware of the dogwhistle. At the same time, you do get a number of well-meaning young tumblrites getting swayed by terf talking points if they have only a surface-level understanding of the issues. People are complicated, and may be well read enough (see: have watched enough YouTubers) to know about the whole JK Rowling fiasco, but not enough to have a thorough understanding of all queer issues.

    It’s an interesting article though; thank you for sharing!

      That’s fair, I’m sorry if I came off standoffish. I’ve been a long-time defender of the term Queer on the internet and can be a little trigger-happy at times. Thank you for your service in verifying TERF activity 🫡

        Valid; it’s often hard to convey tone across the internet, and what would be a quick clarification in person can easily be misconstrued. Thank you for your service in actively promoting a better understanding of queer history o7
