University Hosts Event Disparaging Women

Updated: 4 days ago

Minnesota State University Moorhead is hosting an event titled “Let’s Talk About TERFs” on April 8, 2021.


UPDATE (April 10, 2021): Watch the video of this ridiculous event, where attendees were regularly kicked out of the meeting for asking questions that challenged the panelists' perspectives.



TERF (“Transgender-Exclusive Radical Feminist”) originally designated radical feminists who did not include transgender-identified people under the LGB umbrella, but the term has become a catch-all insult for any woman who expresses concerns or questions about anything related to transgender ideology:


"Trans-exclusionary radical feminists (TERFs) argue that including trans women in women’s spaces like sports erases the rights and experiences of cis women, straight and queer. What’s really at the root of this transphobic ideology? How are feminism and women’s rights weaponized against the trans community to ultimately harm all women and gender non-conforming people, and how can we fight back? Tune in to find out![i]"


The epithet “TERF” has close, if not parallel, connotations to misogynistic slurs like b*tch and c*nt. It is often used to dehumanize women and to advocate violence against them.[ii] Minnesota State University Moorhead’s event might equivalently be titled, “Let’s Talk About B*tches,” “Let’s Talk About C*nts,” or “Let’s Talk About [INSERT RACIAL SLUR HERE].”


Calling reasonable and credible concerns about women’s safety “transphobic” is gaslighting at its finest. Framing women’s rights as “weaponized against the trans community” is a classic DARVO (Deny, Attack, Reverse Victim and Offender) tactic cherished by abusers worldwide.


Considering transgender rights activists’ relentlessly savage personal and professional assaults[iii] on anyone who doesn’t fall in line with their outrageous demands, the organizers of this program have no grounds on which to stand when they imply that they have been unfairly targeted for abuse and are justified in organizing to “fight back.”


Partners for Ethical Care has reached out to the university, but has received no response.


We encourage anyone who also finds this misogynistic event unacceptable to contact the university, its president, and/or its board of directors and tell them so:
