Men Cannot Be Women

11 Aug

Angry men are not women. Sad men are not women. Medically altered men are not women, and men who suffer birth defects are not women.

Feminine men are not women. Confused men are not women.

You are all men. And that’s all right.

What’s not all right is all this harassment and pressure. What’s not all right are the death threats, the elaborate descriptions of how some of you would like to torture “terfs.” This is not all right at all.

Gender theory was created by second wave feminists, the ones you like to hate on. You have turned it on its head. You have made it impossible to create coalition, trans lobbyists. Your stance allows nothing but female submission.

This is not the leftism of my childhood. I expected that the adults I knew were saving the world for me. I was wrong, but we were, at least, grounded in reality. We knew what we were up against, and we knew what we were.

Imagine, for a moment, what it would be like if you admitted you were men. Men in dresses. Men in makeup, men in wigs. Men who use feminizing hormones, men with cosmetic genital surgeries.

It would be honest is what it would be. I would admire the hell out of that. Be yourself. Fight back against the hierarchy.

But as long as you say you’re women, as long as you insist everyone pretend to believe you are women (and everybody knows you are not), you fail. You are just another flavor of conformist. You are boring, and sad, and at the same time, extremely dangerous, as in your own way, you are upholding the status quo. The system. That thing we all hate and want to burn to the ground.

You are on the wrong side, men. You have become lost.

    So food. This shouldn’t have to be explained in 3 hour seminars and detailed reports, this basic reality. But you’ve nailed it so well, so briefly, someone is sure to make a fuss. Too much rationality I guess.
