The latest news in the world of people being proud of their bigotry is a video posted by reknowned transphobe Posie Parker.


Parker began streaming a planned altercation live to her Facebook. Then, she barges into a private meeting being facilitated by the Human Rights Campaign's National Press Secretary Sarah McBride.

McBride is a trans woman and trans activist.

During the video, Parker and her friend Dr. Julie Long repeatedly misgender and harass McBride saying things such as...

"This is Sarah McBride, he gets paid probably quite a lot of money to lobby the government to try and make sure that women and girls have no right to any space anymore."

Throughout the altercation, McBride refuses to acknowledge or answer to the transphobia Long and Parker are spewing at her, even when they refer to her work on trans rights as encouraging 'male violence against women.'

The full video can be seen below:



After handling the situation with grace and refusing to escalate it, McBride shared her thoughts on Twitter.


She used this as an example of the kind of discrimination the trans community faces day to day.




Before ending with this call to action:


People sent their support to McBride.





And many queer cisgender women felt the need to call out the rotten apples within their own community.



Unfortunately, divisions within the LGBTQ community such as these are not all that uncommon.

But trans exclusionary feminism is not feminism. Relying on right wing talking points to fear monger about what and who trans people are is incompatible with social progressivism.

We stand with Sarah McBride.
