Romance Writer Roslyn Holcomb Says She Would Have Shot Trans Woman In Planet Fitness Locker Room | The TransAdvocate

I have no words for this level of hate…

 

Romance Writer Roslyn Holcomb Says She Would Have Shot Trans Woman In Planet Fitness Locker Room | The TransAdvocate:

“One of the fairly regular commenters on GenderTrender is Roslyn Hardy Holcomb, a published writer of color. She’s been interviewed by USA Today, she has twenty-three books reviewed on Goodreads, and you can buy her books on Amazon. Basically, she’s a moderately well known author in the romance genre.

She apparently is also a trans exclusionary radical feminist, abbreviated as TERF.

Holcomb made a comment on the GenderTrender post ‘We must look, act and live the part’ about the Planet Fitness story. In the comment, Holcomb writes that if she were still carrying a gun she’d shoot visibly trans women in gym locker rooms.”

  1. Lucky for the general public she doesn’t bring her shotgun into the change-rooms then! I’m guessing she doesn’t write romances about women who meet the transgender love of their life at the gym?

  2. This makes me sick. I mean really, WTH is wrong with her? Just goes to prove the point that trans people have more to fear from cis people in the locker room/bathroom/everywhere than the reverse. SMH

  3. what is “trans”? if it means someone who is attracted to people of same gender than she might have felt outraged, I will if some man shows up in a changing room while I am changing- it is the same, right? even though I wont shoot either of them but believe me I will not be least amused.

    1. Google “transgender” if you need a definition. However, I can tell you something though, it does not mean being attracted to the same sex, that is homosexual.

  4. Reblogged this on Daniella's Ramblings and commented:
    I get that many feminists are extremely anti trans* people. I also understand at least some of their reasoning in this regard and I think that we as a trans* community have a long way to go in breaking down barriers between us and our sisters in that community. I think many of us need to think about our attitudes and behaviours. We are by no means perfect and some of us are sexist and misogynistic with frankly weird ideas about women, femininity and what it actually means to be a woman. However none of this excuses this level of bigotry and hate. I am astounded and saddened. All that I can hope is that she has been misquoted somehow.
