TERFs Ain't Got No Friends

So this news is actually kinda old now but I just heard about it yesterday and it's the most amazing thing.

Video game actor: 'TERFs ain't got no friends and trans people are people'

Voice actor Roger Clark, best known for playing lead character Arthur Morgan in the popular video game Red Dead Redemption 2, sent a message supporting transgender people to fans.

Apparently this guy from the cowboy video game that lets you massacre KKK meetings without incurring penalties like you would for killing, you know, innocent human beings, went to a convention and, in his cowboy voice, said the following:

"And don’t forget: TERFs ain’t got no friends, trans people are people, be beautiful to each other, you’ll be all right."

As far as I can tell, this is just some everyday video game/geek convention, not at like a pro-trans convention, and he just decided to take a minute to tell the world that TERFs don't have friends.

In case you aren't aware, TERF is an acronym for trans-exclusionary radical feminist, meaning a feminist that explicitly subscribes to radical feminist theory and excludes trans women from womanhood. They are the worst and I hate them.

Anyway here's the video:

I played Red Dead Revolver in high school and actually really liked it even though I've never been much into the whole cowboy thing, so basically I now absolutely have to buy the Red Dead Redemption games and play them, for Arthur Morgan.

You know, it's not often these days that I get to say anything positive about video games, and like I can't be fucked to defend them from the politicians afraid of the NRA and I would give up literally all video games if it meant we could have meaningful gun control, but it's nice to be reminded that they can be used for good as well as evil.

Anyway fuck TERFs.
