ann coulter is a man

So there's this post where someone said Caitlyn Jenner "fetishized being a woman" and I noticed 3 types of people reblog it. Terfs who found it appealing, People who criticized the wording, and people who reblogged it uncritically cause they don't like Caitlyn. Thoughts?

Caitlyn Jenner is a Republican and a Trump bootlicker and no friend of most trans women (that is, trans women who aren’t white/passing/Republican/rich), but that doesn’t change the fact that she is a woman. Saying she ‘fetishized being a woman’ is some straight-up TERF shit, and I don’t really think that anyone should be using TERF language to talk about trans women they don’t like. Just because someone’s opinions are shit or because they do things that harm us doesn’t mean it’s okay to use transantagonistic language toward them. 

(It falls under the same umbrella as ‘don’t say Ann Coulter is “really a man,” or make jokes about her man hands or her Adams’ apple,’ which is distressingly fucking common among supposed progressives.)

I generally think Caitlin Jenner is only interested in promoting herself, not the wellbeing of any other trans person. She certainly doesn’t think I’m real, and definitely isn’t there for the trans folks that are in my circle – poor trans folks, TPOC, nonbinary people.

But she’s still a woman. She didn’t fetishize it any more than any other trans woman did. She deserves rage and disgust, but not transantagonism.

Facebook fires trending team, and algorithm without humans goes crazy’ - The Guardian

Just months after the discovery that Facebook’s “trending” news module was curated and tweaked by human beings, the company has eliminated its editors and left the algorithm to do its job. The results, so far, are a disaster.

Over the weekend, the fully automated Facebook trending module pushed out a false story about Fox News host Megyn Kelly, a controversial piece about a comedian’s four-letter word attack on rightwing pundit Ann Coulter, and links to an article about a video of a man masturbating with a McDonald’s chicken sandwich.

The dismissal of the trending module team appears to have been a long-term plan at Facebook. A source told the Guardian the trending module was meant to have “learned” from the human editors’ curation decisions and was always meant to eventually reach full automation.
