100% yes, I hope so too. And I think the people who are like, younger in their feminism will come around. Or a lot of them will, anyway. I do have hope about that. But I’ve also heard things like this from really seasoned, educated, feminist women who have done a lot of reading and reflecting on queer issues, and who were more supportive of trans people in the past. Which is scarier, because it’s harder to combat. Feminists with “the future is female” t-shirts who say things like “I’m never dating anyone with a dick again” can be, sometimes, educated out of their transphobia; more seasoned radical feminists who have veered into TERF territory consciously, and deliberately, are harder to know what to do about. I mean, there’s always no-platforming them, I guess.
