RE: I'm convinced that libfems and handmaidens have a burning hatred for other women and that's why they celebrate TiMs pushing female atheletes out of sports

I am a former handmaiden even if I never was libfem.
I didn't insult other women or harass people to agree with me but I dutifully repeated TWAW, thought they were the most oppressed group ever, science had moved on from the gender binary, all that crap.
I don't hate other women, my primary motivation of I am honest was deep pity. To me laughing at transsexuals felt like laughing at someone who had just pissed their pants in public, so when I doubted and questioned them in my mind I felt ashamed and suppressed it from myself. I would never say my doubts outloud. I thought they should be made to feel included because their lives seemed mostly so pitiful that they deserve to catch a break.
I didn't even think about sport as it isn't my interest. Same with prison. It was also a lot easier to stop myself thinking to hard and asking questions because it would cause the same guilty feeling, like I was bullying the weird kid in class for being different.
I was 10000% wrong about everything but there was no desire to make other women suffer. One of the reasons that 'be kind' is pushed so much is because it works really well on a lot of women who hate the idea of ever being thought of as unkind. It worked on me even though the facts where right in front of my face.

I’m sure there’s some element of envy and destructive misogyny present but I think more of it is that trans rights activist women and women who play sports occupy different social worlds. I don’t think it’s a strict red / blue divide, but the people I know who are either trans or support it don’t play / watch sports and the people I know who play / watch sports don’t support trans. As with many other women-only services, it’s easy for TRA women to give up rights and services they have no personal use for. They don’t care about women having to play against men, they don’t know those women. They care about show support for the trans / nb people in their own social circles.
