I absolutely love it when transjacktivists try to appropriate our language and terms, and try to adapt it to the tranz agenda. It has me rolling around the floor in stitches.
You may remember one commenter, who signed himself “Ashlie, the transsexual fab“. Yes, I almost wet myself laughing. The FAB term is of course, a non-tranz descriptor, but does so in a way as to not reference tranz, a standalone description if you will.
Anyway, I happened across another appropriation, which I will reveal in a moment.
Radfems describe M2Ts’ “performing women” as insulting as a white person doing blackface. Particularly when they parody us, and perform artificial femininity to the max.
Now the background to our transappropriator is that a few transjacktivists were upset that a film about twanz entitled “Ticked Off Trannies with Knives” had a couple of real women playing the M2Ts. Of the five leads, three were M2T and two were FABs playing M2Ts. I guess I should be amused at FABs playing M2Ts.
A blogger by the name of Queenz of Media reports on what transjacktivist Kellie Anne Busey and a few others had to say about the ‘abomination’ of FABs playing M2Ts on screen (my bold):
They’ve railed at Ticked Off Trannies with Knives because two of the five lead actors were not trans women…mind you three leads were trans women…they equated non trans women playing trans women to minstrel shows where white actors would put on black face…
But that was not why QoM was upset with Busey, QoM was upset because Busey and the others were fans of some FAB actress who used the word “tranny” whilst simultaneously trying to get the word “tranny” to be regarded as horrifying as the N-word. QoM was calling out their hypocrisy.
But lets examine this, these M2Ts are upset because FABs are ‘minstelising’ M2Ts on screen. Forgetting of course, the rather important step of M2Ts minstrelising FABs in the first place! It is a bit like a white person, who mistrelises a black person, is complaining that a black person is portraying the white person minstrelising a black person. Yeah, completely dumb. And totally missing the ‘wrongness’ of the first step in this somewhat circular equation.
They probably should have picketed the 1982 film “Victor/Victoria” as well, because that was a woman, pretending to be a drag queen playing a woman. And dammit, it is rilly offensive to drag queens! To be politically correct, they should have had a drag queen, playing a woman pretending to be a drag queen pretending to be a woman.
Somewhat of a feedback loop eh? Perhaps they should use that for the opening of Dr Who?
Oh no, wait a minute, they did.
Getting back to Busey though, you may remember such recent classics as his critical post on Cathy Brennan (& Elizabeth Hungerford’s) letter to the UN:
Was there some sort of message for trans-questioning radfems I wonder? Oh surely not! Busey is “a follower of Jesus”, and gosh, no one would ever think that Christians would do anything wrong (try not to mention The Cruisades, Witchburning, or Abortion-providers’ murders).
Confused? You won’t be! Just drop some acid and play the Dr Who opener 27 times and all will be clear.
