Hacking off healthy body parts is NOT the same as a cleft palate

The reprehensibility of transjacktivists knows no bounds. Latest crap from TwanzWorld is that being twanzgender is “a birth defect, just like a cleft palate”.

I have seen this crapola cropping up all over the place, and even our not-a-dude-but-dyke friend Chaz Bono is relaying this insulting bit of garbage. From the NYT.

“I don’t think the way I grew up had any effect on this issue,” Chaz said. “There’s a gender in your brain and a gender in your body. For 99 percent of people, those things are in alignment. For transgender people, they’re mismatched. That’s all it is. It’s not complicated, it’s not a neurosis. It’s a mix-up. It’s a birth defect, like a cleft palate.”

That’s right, Chaz, tranzjacktivists, and tranz-on-the-bandwagon are all parroting shit like this to legitimise their ‘condition’, their desire to hack off healthy body parts and have new ones fashioned to approximate those of the opposite sex.

Cleft palate happens in roughly one in 700 births, and although there are differing levels of severity, here is what one looks like:

Clearly, a severe case. Cleft palate is not just an “appearance thing”, because there can be problems like feeding as babies, the ability to speak properly, nasal problems, even recurring ear infections leading to permanent deafness. Even frequent disruption (or severe/total hearing loss) will affect the child’s ability to learn language. Ear, nose & throat, all connected up (hence ENT departments). I would suspect that even moderately severe cleft palates could cause problems of this nature as well.

Given that, we see how tranz try to frame their “condition” in order to either gain sympathy, minimise SRS, or try to counter the radfem position that SRS is a form of mutilation.

I am constantly being questioned over and over again, and told that my mind should adjust to the body, and not the other way around. So, therefore, treatment for a cleft lip should be left well alone. After all, that’s mutilation, isn’t it? Never mind the voice issues, or the social issues or just generally feeling uncomfortable with yourself, you should just be comfortable in your own skin and not crumble to societal norms. Right?

So there we have it. Hacking off perfectly healthy body parts for no reason other than accommodating a delusion about gender (or, if no belief in gender, then body dysmorphia), compared to an actual physical birth defect with potentially serious and lifelong consequences if not corrected.

Tranz: Have you no shame?

    In that same post he calls us “the so-called ‘feminists’”, to that I say, fuck you dude, I was born female, have been treated like a female all my life, and I know more about being female than you ever will. I am also a radical feminist, and you, who aren’t even a garden-variety feminist have the audacity to use ‘so-called’ AND put feminists in scare quotes, wtf do you know about feminism anyway?

    And you fucking wonder why I have a problem with you minstrels.

    so called “feminists”? Hahaha. I’ve noticed trans love using “scare quotes” all the time when talking about fabs. You know, us so called “women” with our “vaginas” and double x “chromosomes”.

    Chaz, a so-called “man” is (and there’s simply no nice way to say it) a dullard.
    If Ze does half the job for the transjacktivists Zey did as a lesbian activist Zhey will soon run screaming from Zim.
    Dim bulb.
    Zhat is all.

    I forgot to mention, hat tip to Alien Number (at Scum) for the Chaz article.
    I’ve had a quick skim of the article, there looks to be plenty of blog fodder to be had.

    My cousin was born with cleft palate, and he had to be fed via IV until they could do emergency surgery on him because they had no way to feed him otherwise. If he hadn’t been born in a place/position where the family had access to that kind of care he would assuredly have died. Poor Cher, to have such idiotic offspring.

    This is what liberal feminists have thrown their lot in with:

    “Jenny and I had to relearn how to be together,” Chaz said. “I never really understood women before, to be honest, but I had a tolerance for women that I don’t have now.”

    I laughed. Chaz blushed.

    “No, really. There is something in testosterone that makes talking and gossiping really grating. I’ve stopped talking as much. I’ve noticed that Jen can talk endlessly.” He shrugged. “I just kind of zone out.”

    “You just don’t care!”

    “I just don’t care!” He laughed. “I’ve learned that the differences between men and women are so biological. I think if people realized that, it would be easier. I would be a great relationship counselor. I know the difference that hormones really make.”

    In a fair and just world – that is a world in which there was no status attached to how you looked at birth, other than “it’s a human” – I think we would still have people declaring that bits of their body were wrong. But it would be a tiny fraction of that we have now, and it wouldn’t be packaged in this retrograde, destructive, misogynistic gender-role shite.

    And this trans-bullshit about gender has poisoned feminist thought, in that even otherwise seemingly intelligent, analytical feminists/ feminist bloggers will just not join the dots on this issue because “waaaah transphobia !!”


  7. FAB Libber

    that even otherwise seemingly intelligent, analytical feminists/ feminist bloggers will just not join the dots on this issue because “waaaah transphobia!!”

    Rest assured, we here at TSF are Twanzphobic, in that we have a fear of the stupidity of twanz theory. Although, not irrational. Dammit, all phobias are meant to be irrational.


  8. FAB Libber

    Howdy Eve’s Daughter.
    Yeah, Chaz’s remarks belong with a “wtf” and “jendah stereotypical bullshit” tags. Whilst I don’t normally ridicule F2T, Chaz might become the exception… teh stoopid, it burns.

    One observation is that the T seems to have made Chaz incredibly stupid.
    Hopefully that serves as the warning to young FABs thinking about doing the F2T thing?

    Can I just SAY.

    IF trans-sexualism is to be treated like a “disability” (though no functional ability is limited– ahem!); IF gender identity disorder gets into the DSM, we could be looking at BOTH “reasonable accommodations” under the ADA for a psych impairment AND possible entitlement to Social Security disability benefits.


  10. FAB Libber

    Excellent point UCP.
    Here in the UK SRS is available (free) on the NHS, although some opt to go overseas and pay due to waiting list times. Also, the point that after a diagnosis, hair removal is done through the NHS too, whereas any FAB with hirsutism has to fork out for removal treatment (normally FABs get fobbed off with pills).

    Basically I am saying that some accomodation already exists.


  11. Undercover Punk

    I read non-feminist blogs, you know, and I just happened across this post that casually jokes about “Chaz” being trapped in Chastity’s body versus the writer being a farmer trapped in a non-farmer’s body. HA!


    Farm living is the life for me. Only problem? I don’t live on a farm. Yup. I’m Chaz Bono. I have 9 fish, a couple of cats, 5 chickens and 2 frogs. I figure if I can somehow add a goat to the mix I’ll officially have created my own downtown Green Acres.

    Thanks. You know I like to shaaaare.
