Unapologetic progressive. Fearless activist. Plucky liberal.

On May 17, 2011, I posted about Roseanne Barr being “the greatest TV feminist Barr none.” I admired that she stood up for herself and her vision for “Roseanne” and was an unapologetically strong woman.

Since then, I’ve found out Barr is virulently transphobic and more appropriately called a trans-exclusionary radical feminist (TERF) than an intersectional feminist. Her remarks about trans men and trans women are well documented, including at TransAdvocate in 2012. She continues to double down on her stance every time she’s called on it.

Barr is more interested in defining people by their genitals than by how they define themselves, which I cannot accept. She does real damage and harm to the trans community with her hatred, and I’m sorry that I once supported her.

The May 2011 post has been deleted. I apologize to anyone who was hurt or offended by it. I was wrong.
