Counterpetitioning Cardiff University's Hosting of Germaine Greer

There is a petition to Cardiff to cancel Germaine Greer's talk. I find it abhorrent that I must make a counterpetition so a second wave feminist isn't silenced by those who could just as easily not go to the lecture yet instead have decided to try and no platform her, to silence her. They've given no evidence in the petition either, just slurs.

This reactionary tactic of calling a woman a 'transphobe' is no different than calling someone a 'commie' in 1960's America during the cold war. It's a slur that contains no analysis, just an emotional response that is primarily used against women who talk about women's biological realities, not gender identities.

Greer centers females/women in her work. I fail to see how anyone who centers women is encouraging violence against anyone. 

Her position on gender doesn't make anyone unsafe. The very marginalized group that Greer talks to and about is women. We are a protected class. Silencing her is silencing us.

Enough is enough.  Stop  no platforming women who only want to talk about women's rights and women's lives.
