Do TERFs have a lot in common with creationists?

TERFs insist that trans women are really men, and that trans man are really women, in the face of counter-examples. Creationists insist that there are no transitional fossils, in the face of counter-examples.

TERFs confuse the rigorous and narrow legal definition of a legally-protected single-sex space with vernacular usage (e.g., trying-on rooms in a department store) in order to spread misinformation. Creationists confuse the rigorous and narrow definition of a scientific theory with vernacular usage in order to spread misinformation by claiming that the Theory of Evolution is equivalent to a guess.

TERFs seek to blame anyone but themselves for their own flawed Theory of Gender; all the while getting angrier and angrier as it keeps failing. Creationists seek to blame anyone but themselves for their own flawed Theory of Origins; all the while getting angrier and angrier as it keeps failing.

TERFs and creationists don't care about having the right answers; they both only care about being seen to be right.

    First of all, the word "theory" is often misused. "Theory" is not the same as "hypothesis." Not even close. "Theory" is a system of ideas used to explain something. But the ideas have to be tested and proven useful for this purpose. Theories can change, but they are not guesses.

    Next, TERF. I had never heard of TERF before, so I looked it up. But obviously I can't speak for what TERFs think, not being one. And there are not very many of them, considering that they must be "radical feminists" [a small group in itself] who think, probably like most people, that a person's sex is biologically determined at conception. But "most people" are not interested in harming people with gender anomalies whether physical or behavioral. They just want to protect their own spaces and families.

    "Most people", even most people who believe in God the Creator, are not "creationists" in the sense of believing the God created in just the two ways described in Genesis. For one thing, there ARE two versions in Genesis.

    I guess that's about all I can say, since I can't read the minds either of the average TERF or the average Creationist.
