The reason I became what people call a “TERF” is because I constantly saw tweets asking lesbians to evaluate their “genital preferences” and welcome dick into their life. This was disturbing to me and reminded me of how straight men used to speak to me, and ask me how I know I don’t like dick without trying it out. I’m afraid of openly saying I don’t like dick, not even if a trans woman possesses it, because I could face serious repercussions. For simply denying sex/intimacy with penises or male people. It’s sick, gross, and it’s happening. Constantly. They try to say it’s not real, but then turn around and say not sucking dick and letting trans women penetrate you is transphobic. It makes me furious and scared for the future.
