It is certainly not true that most “radical feminists” are transphobic. I'll believe this when a group of transwomen conduct a survey and analysis. In the meantime, I'll laugh at the cartoon because it reveals a theme that runs through both groups: transphobia. The cartoon is oversimplified? Show me some radfems who are demonstrably NOT transphobic, then

How is this any more "hypersimplified" than the Gendercator movie, which substitutes a trans-radical christian alliance (I won't say conservative christian, a true conservative may not be so activist) Looking at both this cartoon and Gendercator, I see overt hypersimpliflication. As a transwoman, this is what we are are allowed to see when some individuals block out our voices. We're accusing of blocking out the voices of others, or at best hypersimplifying, (ie, Frameline, Boston Dyke March v. Bitch - two cancellations I oppose, yet in the recent past transwomen been accused of invasion, accused of having purposeful destructive motives (I think we all know which blog that would be.) Some very ugly, very hypersimpliflied things have been thrown at us. Why is this any different? As a note about what conservative christians and radical feminists do in common for others, we may find transpeople doing far more when our security in it is assured. If we are willing to look closely we might even see them doing things now. That very last panel within a panel asks a question "Does this mean we cannot be friends?" should add, "and still be ourselves?" Do motives have to be exactly mutual to be understood? Or for that matter, immediately understood? That's hypersimplification, in a nutshell. Maybe the next installment of Amp's cartooning could add someone to the discussion...and it would open up things in the cartoonosphere, a little bit.
