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.

Uninterrupted innocence

TheFeatheredSleep

Kids Jumping into Lake ChippewaPigeon-chested children with streaming noses

dive weightless into still water

breaking circles into smaller circles, rebounding against

sunlight

their laughter feels like a cold hand around my neck

as I imagine their futures

the girl with the black hair, she’ll be raped by her uncle

her mother will tell her, she is a dirty little liar

she will start taking pills at ten and graduate to heroin

when the school counselor asks her, where it all went wrong

she will think of the sunlight through trees

elm, willow, plain oak and cypress

the sound of her unmolested body, falling into water

as if baptized in reverse

the turn of her mother’s neck, in denial

her thick coral lips, mouthing betrayal

my brother would not do that

her own diminishing and the feeling

of wet, cold, bathing suit

sticking

cloying

admonishing

and she will not know, how to verbalize

that separation…

Anti-lesbian harassment at Vancouver Dyke March

7 Aug

Purple Sage

This is a guest post by Katherine Jeffcott who attended the Vancouver Dyke March on August 5, 2017. She says:

I thought I would share my account of the dyke march in Vancouver, including pictures. As you know, I’m big on making women central in my feminism. So, I made a sign which stated simply “dyke power is female”. Here is me with my sign:

Well, we were marching, when this trans woman who was obviously a volunteer or a marshal, came up to me and yelled at me. She said my sign was transmisogynistic (because it doesn’t include male anatomy). Essentially the uterus offended this person. So she yelled at me, but one of my sisters quickly came up and put her arm around me, indicating I wasn’t alone. I kept marching. Meanwhile I was surrounded by other awesome women with amazing signs. Like this:

And this:

We weren’t saying anything…

Back from the blogosphere dead to say something about binders

1 Aug

Hypotaxis

What.

Is.

Up?

It’s been a long time since I’ve been on the blog because, to be perfectly honest, 1) I have a fulfilling life outside of contemplating these issues (shocking, I know) and 2) I was burnt the fuck out writing on these issues.

That said. Here I am. Again.

Honestly, if I continue to post, I don’t want to post anymore about all the men who have ladybrains. I honestly don’t care about men, and am more interested in what the dumpsterfire of queer/trans ideology is doing to girls and women – because I really care about girls and women.

So today, a local Pride group shared a Buzzfeed article celebrating the wonders of chest binding. (I’m not linking to the video, but you can give it a Google if you’re so inclined.)

Now, some of the subjects (all female) in the video claimed that chest binding made…

A Charm Against the Language of Politics

31 Jul

A CHARM AGAINST THE LANGUAGE OF POLITICS
by Veronica Patterson

Say over and over the names of things,
the clean nouns: weeping birch, bloodstone, tanager,
Banshee damask rose. Read field guides, atlases,
gravestones. At the store, bless each apple
by kind: McIntosh, Winesap, Delicious, Jonathan.
Enunciate the vegetables and herbs: okra, calendula.

Go deeper into the terms of some small landscape:
spiders, for example. Then, after a speech on
compromising the environment for technology,
recite the tough, silky structure of webs:
tropical stick, ladder web, mesh web, filmy dome, funnel,
trap door. When you have compared the candidates’ slippery
platforms, chant the spiders: comb footed, round headed,
garden cross, feather legged, ogre faced, black widow.
Remember that most short verbs are ethical: hatch, grow,
spin, trap, eat. Dig deep, pronounce clearly, pull the words
in over your head. Hole up
for the duration.

The Conceptual Penis as a Social Construct – Oh Gender Studies, you so silly…

17 Jul

Dead Wild Roses

Amazing what goes on and more importantly get accepted and published in the field of gender studies these days.  Let’s take a peek at the abstract.

The text reads:

Abstract:
Anatomical penises may exist, but as pre-operative transgendered women also have anatomical penises, the penisvis-à-vismaleness is an incoherent construct. We argue that the conceptual penis is better understood not as an anatomical organ but as a social construct isomorphic to performative toxic masculinity.  Through detailed poststructuralist discursive criticism and the example of climate change, this paper will challenge the prevailing and damaging social trope that penises are best understood as the male sexual organ and reassign it a more fitting role as a type of masculine performance.
Subjects: Gender Studies – Soc Sci; Postmodernism of Cultural Theory; Feminism
Keywords: penis; feminism; machismo braggadocio; masculinity; climate change
   This from the authors of the hoax paper:
