Tootsie Fest!!!

Gosh, I know I have not been blogging much of late, so many of my regulars must be having twanzphobic withdrawals about now. I intend to rectify your condition with a Tootsie Fest!

This one is just a photo study, of the Lake Erie Gala (Nov 2010), the Avalon Hotel was all-a-flutter with wall-to-wall Tootsies! [1]

The ‘Gala’ was put on by Eerie Sisters [2], and who else but males could afford to hire out a hotel and hold such a multi-day event? Earning 25% more than the average FAB has its perks, and here are those perks – this is what men do with the extra money they make.

The majority of these Tootsies appear to be garden-variety part-time cross-dressers. How nice it is, to have one’s sexual fetish and hobby legitmised by calling it “transgender”. We call that male privilege.


If you dudes seriously think you pass as women, you are seriously delusional. Get some better wigs for starters.

Tackle count, probably about 100%.

    Yeah, FABs would be called mutton-dressed-as-lambs.
    FABs of any age would look fairly ridiculous in those outfits, but our crossdressers have discovered a totally new level of ridiculousness.

    I declare the winner to be the one in the pink fairy dress.
    My gawd dude, anyone over the age of FOUR could not carry that off.

    So much man shoulder. Doesn’t matter how “pretty”, slender, or dragged up a man is, those man shoulders are always there. The horrid wide shoulders with the narrow hips do NOT work for dresses tailored for women’s figures. Really, really don’t. :\

    And if this was a group of FABs dressed like this at a gathering it would be declared a “slut fest” or something. But get a bunch of middle aged guys together dressed like this and suddenly it’s “cute” and just so “progressive.” Reminds me of the guy who goes through the airport in lady’s undergarments. Male privilege indeed. -_-

    If this were a gathering of FABs, the guy in the grip of the twink would be called a Cougar (and much worse, given his horse face and the wide gulf between the aesthetics of his mug versus that of the twink’s).

    I feel sorry for them to be honest. I mean the whole “trans” thing is such a mess, the refusal to recognise basic biology, the refusal to understand the misogyny in gender roles – this is not just ridiculous it’s utterly objectionable. As is the fact that our objections are screamed down as “transphobic”, it’s nonsense.

    These people obviously have do issues though, and they’re just then left (by mainstream feminism) to merrily go along in their delusions, and that is kinda sad really.

    Parallel, this lot are cross dressers. Note the wigs. That is so they can take off the wigs after their “girly night out” and go back to their well paid manz jobs. I don’t feel sorry for them. This is their sexual fetish, they are just indulging in it. These are the worst of the minstrels, living the rest of the time with male privilege.

    I concur, and I would like to nominate the blond in black next to him in his second photo as first runner-up, to perform in his place should he be unable to fulfill his duties. I swear that dress is so short I can almost see the fringes on his benefits. Course the beer belly doesn’t help the front hemline to fall where it should either. Not that I care about bellies or hemlines, really, but come on. If females went out dressed like that we’d be a laughingstock. I know, because I’ve been there, and I deeply resent these folks’ cosplay at something which has serious consequences for women like myself who FAIL at it.

    It’s a tough call for runner up, but the squirrel adjudication panel has come to a decision – green hair, only because there is a picture of the two of them together, and it make captioning the photo so much easier (did I mention we were lazy twanzsquirrels? well, we are).

    However, we do have honorable mention for your nominee (black baby doll nightie?), as well as flag-dame, cougar-wannabe, blue sequins and candle-dudette (only because he went to the trouble of growing his hair). Note that in front of candle-dudette, a not-cheap-probably printed twanz flag, and photos of themselves on the wall. 🙄 And why isn’t that candle pink?!?!

    and I deeply resent these folks’ cosplay at something which has serious consequences for women like myself who FAIL at it.
    Yep. If you fail at it, you are likely to get tormented or bashed, if you succeed at it you will be constantly hit-upon. It’s a no-win which ever way you go. Unlike them, we can’t put it away in the wardrobe until next party time, and carry on with our lives as part of the privileged class.

    Burning question: In photo #3, did he wax his mo’ after putting on the foundation make-up? Rookie mistake I reckon.

    Oh no – another horror show and yet and yet these male cross-dressers think they are really dressing as biologically born females. Male mutton dressed as what?? Lamb seems too kind to these arrogant men, but this is just one example of male supremacy – men can do what ever they like because men supposedly are the only ones to define fact from myth.

    Spot-on these men can play at being women because they are not women (obviously) and know their male pseudo rights and privileges will not be challenged in the foreseeable future. Biologically born females however are subjected to male domination and male control from the minute they begin breathing on their own. That’s why radical feminists state male supremacist system exists despite claims to the contrary!

    If a man truly feels he was born into the wrong gendered body, why would you portray that femininity in a “woman costume”? Dressing as “Wonder Woman” or “Dame Edna” is not a true portrayal of being a woman. A truly trans-gendered individual tries to assimilate and pass as a true woman and not a caricature of one. I am offended as a “woman born woman” to see a man dressing as a cartoon character who thinks that is what being a woman is. I can tell you as a woman I do not feel the need to dress as a super hero to express my female gender. If this is what your idea of being a woman is I think some intensive therapy is needed to explore that misconception.

    Thanks for the (first) video confirmation GM, it was obvious to me that these were part time cross-dressers who live their lives as menz.

    Transjacktivists refuse to make any distinction between transgender (the full timers) and the cross-dressers (the part timers), and are happy for anyone in a skirt to use the ladies’ room. Which proves the point Cathy Brennan keeps making, that the definition of transgender is far too broad.

    Kerching: in that first video “will pump a quarter of a million into the local economy”. In the intro I pointed out these dudes, who live and work as men, have far more disposable income. I like the independent confirmation like that, because twanz insist that we make this stuff up. It’s not. It’s obvious, and it’s fact. It is them who lie about how they live, and make out they are exactly like FABs if they put on a dress or pretend to live as a FAB. They barely walk a yard, let alone a mile in our “pumps”.

    Katie, Casebeer does live most of the time these days as a manz. I guess he still dresses up as his alter-ego “Anne Casebeer” on the weekends. He is also married now. Basically living a het lifestyle (so really, wtf was he doing as treasurer of an LGBT org anyway????). If gay menz don’t watch it, tranz will also usurp them out of the LGBT orgs as well, just as they are doing to lesbians now.

    Hi Brenda, welcome. Just found your comment in mod.

    I can see you are in the early stages of tranz analysis, and your intuitition says “wrong” but you can’t quite put your finger on the “why”.

    Firstly, dump the term “gender” from your vocabulary.
    https://twanzphobic.wordpress.com/category/gender-roles/

    Gender is shortform for “gender roles” and is steeped in sexist stereotypes. Transgender don’t trangress anything, all they do is uphold one sexist stereotype and opt for another. Only radfems opt for “get rid of all gender role nonsense”.

    Biological sex is the basis for female subjugation, not gender or gender roles. The gender roles and ‘gender’ is what we are forced into because of biological sex. I have no gender. I do not participate in any gender roles (except getting lower pay, because I am female, and that is out of my control). Biological sex is fact. There are two biological sexes in humans – female and male, with a tiny percentage of birth defects called intersex (who are still biologically male, but frequently brought up female)
    https://twanzphobic.wordpress.com/2011/04/14/the-default-human-is-female/

    In the mainstream, the term gender is used as a direct replacement for sex (meaning biological sex). This is incorrect, given the root of the meaning of gender, coming from gender roles, a societal construction. Therefore, transgender are playing at a social construction, not a biological reality. That is why it is not real, and comes off as dress-ups most of the time. It is performance, not reality.

    Of course, transgender (and cross dressers) need to indulge in the concept of femininity in order to portray this fantasy. It does not work without it. Femininity, and what is considered ‘feminine’ differs between time and place – it too is a cultural construct. Any dude trying to do transgender, without using the cultural construct of femininity, just looks like… a dude! Because the reality is, the biological reality, maleness.

    Nobody actually transgresses sex, biological sex, they can only mimic it, and mimicry is not reality either. Biological sex is just a fact, nothing more. That is why all these dress-ups, no matter if they are part time (cross dressers) or full time (transgender, transsexual), come off as pure bullshit – see my header graphic for the clue.
    https://twanzphobic.wordpress.com/about-2/

    Of course, the cross-dressers use far more parody and mockery, and that is why it is more obvious at this end of the tranz spectrum. They are minstrelising females, minstrelising the ‘gender’ roles that females have been forced into conforming to – that there is the double rub.

    Well, if you makes you feel any better Katie, they only missed Halloween by two weeks, it was held in the week of Nov 14.
    But, perhaps they were operating by a different calender, either the Julian calendar, or some speshul laydee calendar of their own making. The switch between the Julian and Gregorian calendars was a loss of 11 days in 1752, and if you figure in another 300 years or so, the difference is probably around the 14 days now. So perhaps, according to the Julian calendar, they got it right!

    I nominate the one of the bloke in the electric blue dress with his hands crossed in front of him, like a Geisha. The reason I hate it is that that particular feminine mannerism is heavily foisted upon women in Japan. I think it was because it used to make the kimono look good and set off the lines. Now, I have worn a kimono and it’s BDSM all the way. You can hardly move your arms, so that pose sort of gives your arms something to do.
    In all photos and ceremonies, women are expected to do that “modest” cross your arms in front of you, submissive pose. YOu can just let your arms hang side by side, like men do.

    Actually, there were photos of the “gala” (LOL, “gala”) that had their wives in them, and it was easy to spot “there’s a FAB”. In no particular order – broad shoulders combined with narrow hips, a lack of neck or adam’s apple, a really bad wig, generally longer torso, big manz hands, big feet, and overdone make-up (because when they don’t they look like … males). I think I already pointed out the rookie who waxed his tash (#3). Also, there seems to be a lack of cupid’s bow on the lips as well.

    http://www.worldbellydance.com/history.html

    Origins of Belly Dance

    The type and style of dancing which we now call belly dance, can be traced back over 6000 plus years. The early pagan communities often worshipped a matriarchal deity and extolled the magic and fascination of the ability of women to create life. There is a lot of historical evidence which links the ritual of fertility dances at that time, with symbolic re-creations of giving birth, to modern belly dancing. The sharp hip movements, deliberate muscular contractions and spasms, as well as sinewy undulations, demonstrate strong connections to the body’s responses during labour and delivery. The dances spread from Mesopotamia to North Africa, Rome, Spain andIndia. It is thought gypsies travelled and spread belly dance. This blending can be seen in the use of the neck slides introduced from India and the transformation of hip shimmy to foot stamping in flamenco dance.

    Ah yes, appropriation, yet again. Where’s your uterus buddy?

    Back along the way, a women’s community that I was a part of had a member that taught some of this to the other women. She made it clear that it was originally performed in women’s only groups, not for males. It is generally shown in popular culture, like movies, as being for the seduction of males. No, it was about childbirth and staying fit for childbirth. It provided a lot more safety in childbirth than women without it had/have. A kind of fitness for women as women. Also fun and bonding. I enjoyed it. Women’s only space. It doesn’t belong in a trans-space. No way!
