Twisty blogs about Smith College’s discrimination against Calliope Wong

[Trigger warning for transmisogyny]
My feelings about Twisty are terribly conflicted. As always, her take on Smith College rejecting a qualified woman because she is trans* is fascinating, but I nevertheless approach her with a lot of conflicted feelings. As much as Twisty “validates” trans folk from within a certain framework of feminism, the fact of the matter is that this (WHITE, amerikan, cis) framework is incomplete/oppressive and therefore problematic.
As for the comments, so much trigger warning. Twisty said she would delete transmisogynist comments, but either her mods aren’t up to snuff or she’s full of shit.
