How do you think feminist groups should handle the blurring definition of who is a woman? (not only Queer-feminist movements but every group that focuses primarily on equality between men and women/Women's rights).
Is it inevitable that all feminist groups must deal with trans/queer-issues to some degree?
1. Alexander Chamberland was a politician in a left-leaning youth party a few years ago. Chamberland insisted on being referred to as a woman, but never went through a sex change operation or changed to a more feminine sounding name, neither did she grow out her hair or wear dresses or anything else stereotypically female. Chamberland's main political agenda has been feminist issues and she is involved in the same feminist movement as a CIS-gendered woman I know. This other woman has taken issue with the fact that Chamberland decides to speak on the behalf of women while still supposedly having the privilege of a white man due to her upbringing, body and name. An example was that Chamberland, in a discussion group consisting of women, would easily take up the most space and dominate in the discussion.
2. During a protest for women's rights during the Interational Women's day, a feminist and a Queer movement group* were joined for a mutual protest march. These two groups were on the same page about women's rights but the Queer-group focused more on Queer-theory and trans-issues. The leader for the feminist movement group had pushed the idea that no men would be allowed in the protest march, since it was focused on women and several of the activists were afraid of men after previous sexual assault. This was dismissed since the Queer group had several FTM-members and other-gendered who wanted to participate and felt they were equally affected by misogyny as the CIS-women. This resulted in the feminist group showing up with a banner that said "Women only behind this banner!" or something along those lines. This meant that women who were afraid of men could enjoy the safety of a only-women's-zone, but it pissed off the leader of the Queer group. Some participants of the feminist group were also annoyed that the Queer group brought up trans-issues on the International Women's Day.
* Both groups were presumably feminist but I wrote "feminist group" and "queer group" so it would be easier to see which was more focused on traditional women's rights vs Queer & trans-issues.
I had no involvement in either of the examples, I heard of them through the "other woman" who identifies as a Queer-feminist but is more interested in women's rights rather than gender fluidity.
