A self-proclaimed radical feminist organization received push-back from trans rights groups after a recent Seattle Public Library event but the all-female organization says that it was the protesters who were acting in a discriminatory manner.
On Saturday, the Womens Liberation Front hosted an event at the downtown branch of the library titled, Fighting the New Misogyny: A Feminist Critique of Gender Identity.
We stand unapologetically for the rights, privacy, and safety of women and girls, Kara Danksy, a member of the WoLF Board of Directors, told KIRO Radios Dori Monson.
The group advocates for reproductive rights, an end to pornography and prostitution, and the abolition of gender.
Gender is a caste system that exists in order to keep women and girls in our place, and we call for the total abolition of gender, Dasnky said.
She explained that gender means certain stereotypes, such as girls preferring pink and boys preferring blue,(snip)
We think that they have no place in contemporary society, she said.
Opponents of WoLF took to the sidewalk outside of the Seattle Public Library on Saturday afternoon to protest what they called an event for transphobic hate speakers.
WoLF believes that men are male and women are female, according to Dansky.
A man who says he is a woman is still a man, she said.
Some protesters on Saturday called WoLF members TERFs, an acronym WoLF considers derogatory that stands for trans-exclusionary radical feminist. Dansky noted that the accusation of TERF is typically accompanied by threats of rape and death.
Crowd members, including Antifa members, made threats of violence against event attendees and even used physical intimidation one woman was shoved by a protester.
We are women who simply wanted to assemble and speak about womens rights, (snip) "And we were told that that was hateful.

Liberals are fighting each other!!!
Pass the popcorn!!
The SJW types were all for pushing trannies and their BS...until it started to encroach on their special women’s status.
They should all go to Tacoma to see if the new traffic light has different colors.
The left has lots of wedge issues:
—Illegal aliens vs union workers
—Muslims vs women’s rights activists
—Environmentalists vs union workers
—Muslims vs Jews
plus weird stuff like this—and probably dozens more we don’t even know about...
“The left is not made up of friends and allies. It’s made up of competing parasites.”
Don’t forget illegal aliens stealing all the jobs blacks used to do.
The Library would solve a lot of it’s current problems just by saying ‘No more political demonstrations of ANY KIND at this public library! What about people who just want to read, or be amongst all the books and for a peaceful interlude?
They get into trouble by becoming a Social Awareness center.
No. It is the realization that “gender identity” poses a threat to women’s basic rights. It is the man with an intact penis but legally female who raped women in prison (UK). It is letting dudes in dresses in locker rooms and changing rooms, and the women who complain as he walks around naked are evicted from the gym or punished at school. It is “gender fluid” young men who identify as girls to win state competitions and get scholarships, then identify as males when convenient.
I hate demos at the library, it wakes up the homeless
Oh I think those women have been liberated from all men for a long time already.
