Oh, Mommy

16 Feb

So why are you transwomen so obsessed with lesbians? I keep reading all this “You’re such bigots because you don’t want me to insert my ladystick in you.” Geez people, can’t you just date each other? What with your all being so much better women than lesbians? So much more svelte and better put together and stuff?

I think a lot of you have a serious lure-of-the-receding-object problem. All women must desire your ladystick, or else we’re all bigots.

So where does that come from? Wanting to do Mommy, perhaps? But Mommy is off limits, because of the whole incest taboo thing.

Shrine

Hmmm. Maybe there are some other off-limits women to be fixated upon. Ones who aren’t protected by the incest taboo.

Enter (unwittingly) lesbians. An overall pleasant cohort of women born women who mostly just want to be left alone to date and even sometimes fall in love with each other, and who often work to promote women’s rights and women’s organizing. Women who have no sexual interest in male bodies. Women who are oh so frequently intelligent and thoughtful and considerate and supportive, especially to each other.

The perfect target. A whole bunch of mommies to go after! Mommies who do not care about boys (you) more than they do about each other!

Mommies To Be Invaded!

Successful Invasion Of Mommies Solves Everything!

Well, except climate disruption, racism, pedophilia, rape, environmental disasters, assorted poisonings, sexual trafficking of women and children, pollution, vicious behaviours of assorted stripes, nonhuman abuse, fresh water shortages, famine…

No worries. Once the Mommies submit, they’ll fix all this. That’s what Mommies are for. 

Born That Way

25 Sep

I’ve noted the parallels between homosexual activism and transgender activism pushing the idea that people are born with specific sexual orientations or gender identities.

I think this is all a red herring. It does not matter whether a person is born homosexual or not, whether it is a matter of choice or not.

What matters is that sexual orientation or sexual choice is none of anyone’s damned business. Sex is between adult consenting parties. It is a private consensual matter. When it stops being a private consensual matter, it becomes something else.

Gender identity is not a private consensual matter. It is about roles that have public ramifications. It is about transgressing boundaries. It is about girls and women being expected to tolerate intact males in spaces where the girls are obliged to disrobe. It is about traumatized women in shelters being expected to tolerate intact males in what should be a safe space. It is about women in prisons being expected to have intact male cellmates. 

All in the name of freedom. Freedom for whom? Guys who say they are women “born that way.” Women who actually were born that way are set up to be collateral damage for this fine new race of superior women with full XY chromosomes, penises, and indeterminate rage. Our opinion does not matter. If we express it, we are called bigots. 

No one will remember if these people rape us. You will just say we made it all up, as always. Or we probably asked for it, from our prison cellmates. Or, why do we complain so much? And why were we in prison in the first place? We must be crazy. Normal women aren’t in prison. 

Definitely crazy. Mad, bad, and dangerous to know. Born that way. Stay away. These people are dangerous. 

Another Letter From A Transwoman

And an honest and insightful one.

Terrible Wars

3 Mar

The terrible wars are always internecine. I am of the philosophy that we are all one, bugs, humans, grizzly bears, pond slime, etc. I understand that’s kind of hard for lots of people to get their heads wrapped around.

This one is between humans, radical feminist separatists and transwomen.

I am no expert, by far. I read a radical feminist separatist blog. I find the author interesting. I also have read a lot of writing by transwomen. I have a transman Internet friend. I had a friendly acquaintance for some time, with a woman who started out straight, decided she was a lesbian, fell in love with her drag queen boyfriend, and stayed with him and married him after he went through medical transgender surgery and hormonal medication. I fell out of touch with her and her wife, but I’ve always wished them well, and thought them brave.

I can’t own the experiences of transwomen or radical feminist separatists, because I am neither. I do know there is a war, though.

Radical feminist separatists have been chastised by non-separatists as giving feminism a bad name. I used to agree with that. Now, I dunno. They have a point. Men have been abusing women for thousands of years, men aren’t getting serious enough about getting this stopped, they want out. They want spaces with no men. And that includes anyone who was born and raised male.

Sadly, transpeople do exist, people who suffer from gender dysphoria. People who are deeply identified with their non-birth gender, whose bodies feel wrong for them. People we should feel compassion for.

But we can’t just magically turn men into women, or women into men. We are stuck with our bodies, even with plastic surgery and hormones. No bio-man can really become a woman, no bio-woman can really become a man.

It’s tragic.

Now is where the law enters in: can people declare themselves to be legally of the opposite gender?

Well, perhaps we could do this if the person got themselves medically turned into the opposite gender as much as possible. Except that this is not possible for lots of people. So if we want to let transpeople become legally their identified gender, we have to let them do it without medical intervention, if we want to be fair and not engage in economic biases.

Okay, so where does this leave the radical feminist separatists? With transwomen who really do believe they are women, but still look like men, including having penises, wanting to join radical feminist separatist groups. Groups that include a lot of women who have had their mental health deeply messed with by men. I’ve thought about this a lot, and the only way I can see out of it is for the radical feminist separatist groups to redefine themselves as women who have grown up female, traumatized by the culture as female, and not interested in bonding with people who grew up male with male privilege, but still be kind to transwomen and try to be supportive about transwomen finding their own venues, and accept the sad fact that their unwanted male heritage is triggering for female separatists.
