If you’re a fan of “Parks and Recreation” you likely know about Galentine’s Day. Fictional character Leslie Knope, played by funny gal Amy Poehler, created the holiday on the show and it just spiraled from there.
“Every February 13, my ladyfriends and I leave our husbands and our boyfriends at home, and we just come and kick it, breakfast-style,” Leslie says in the episode. “Ladies celebrating ladies.”
But like all fun and harmless things, the SJW crowd is trying to ruin the day for everyone. Because saying phrases like “ovaries over brovaries” is hurtful and exclusionary to trans women.
hey y'all galentines day events are great but when you use that dumb ass "chicks before dicks, ovaries before brovaries, uteruses before duderuses" slogan to advertise your event you're actively promoting transphobic rhetoric and excluding trans women from your feminism ✌️

Quiet reminder that naming your reproductive justice fundraiser / galentines day celebration "lady parts" or some variation thereon is a real good way to actively erase and marginalize trans and nonbinary people.

I agree. In fact, to show my support and for that exact reason, I will be featuring a trans author during Women in Horror month.
