Trans Activists Nail a Dead Rat to Door of Women-Only Rape Shelter

Weird that women fleeing rape by men wouldn't want to shelter with, you know, men.

By the way, this sort of bullying, aggressive, and violent behavior is exactly what I associate with Real Women. So -- kudos, fellas!

This week, staff of the Vancouver Rape Relief and Women’s Shelter (VRRWS) in British Columbia found messages such as "Kill TERFS," "F*** TERFS," and -- what else? -- "Trans women are women" scrawled across their windows and walls. ("TERF," for "trans-exclusionary radical feminist," is a generally derogatory term for feminists who do not believe certain things about transgenderism.) This is not the first time something like this has happened. Three weeks ago, a woman seeking the shelter’s services was alarmed to find a dead rat nailed to the front door.

"The women who come to our support groups are rape victims and battered women," says Hilla Kerner, VRRWS's spokeswoman, who has worked at the shelter for 14 years. "One of them said to me, 'Haven't we suffered enough?'"

Saying "Trans women are real women" at the same time you're threatening real women takes... what's that word? ... oh yes: It takes balls.
