Twanzphobia (aka commonsense) breaking out all over!

Yep, the long-awaited outbreak of commonsense has begun to happen.

Margaret Wente, of Canada’s Globe & Mail, puts many of the key points in her article, including ‘transkids’ and the difference between sexual orientation and biological sex (although she wrongly calls this ‘gender identity’).

You’ve got to be brave to say that these days. Today, anyone who dares to question the march of transgender rights is labelled as transphobic.

Lindsay Leigh Bentley (blogger of “health, nutrition, wellness, and even parenting and marriage”) recounts her childhood and subsequent motherhood of a non-conforming child—all good, albeit a bit on the heteronormative side.

They just let me be me.  They let me be a girl who wore jeans more often than skirts.  They let me play with slingshots rather than princess wands.  They didn’t conclude that I was gay, or transgender. They didn’t put me in a box that would shape my future, at the expense of my own free will.

And although this one from Paul McHugh on the WSJ is behind a paywall, the title and sub-title pretty much lay it out:

Transgender Surgery Isn’t the Solution
A drastic physical change doesn’t address underlying psycho-social troubles.

The ‘mixed bag’ of trying to be ‘neutral’ by Michelle Goldberg in The New Yorker. But some great stuff including a 1973 quote from Robin Morgan:

I will not call a male “she”; thirty-two years of suffering in this androcentric society, and of surviving, have earned me the title “woman”; one walk down the street by a male transvestite, five minutes of his being hassled (which he may enjoy), and then he dares, he dares to think he understands our pain? No, in our mothers’ names and in our own, we must not call him sister.

This what I loved about the New Yorker, the references to earlier feminists criticising (the then) transsexualism, and how this is not a new thing at all.

The rise of pornography and transgenderism are main parts of the backlash against second wave feminism. Women everywhere are starting to wake up again, and I hope it will propel women back into proper feminist understanding and action.

Laydees, the jig is up. Put down the lippy and step away from the handbag!

    The lipstick and handbags are fine for these guys. It’s the invasion of women-only space that needs to stop. It’s clear that, in this patriarchal world of ours, women need safe spaces. This means telling the men to stay out of these spaces, regardless of how they identify.

    So yeah, I’m glad of this commonsense breaking out all over. If you impersonate a combat veteran, you get a lot of grief from the veteran’s community. They call it Stolen Valor, and they take it as a huge insult. So it is with Stolen Womanhood – it’s an insult and a transgression. Stolen Manhood is an insult, too – but when we consider the history of patriarchal oppression, Stolen Womanhood is much, much worse.

      Yes, the ‘stolen valor’ ‘stolen womanhood’ parallel indeed.

    The ‘backlash’ (sic) against biological men claiming they are really females in a male body has begun. Hooray!! It appears that despite these biological men increasing their threats to eliminate (meaning to kill) any Feminist who dares to challenge their myths, commonsense is beginning to prevail.

    However cynical me ( I know mens’ tactics too well) believes ‘the men in frocks’ will create another justification for their claims they can magically transform themselves into women! White male liberals will claim ‘these men in frocks are a special oppressed group and whilst we accept biological males cannot magically transform themselves into females, we (meaning women of course) must accept these men as they are because to do otherwise is ‘transphobic!’

    Bingo – white liberals males claiming ‘yes we know biological males can’t become females but because they are males this means they must be accorded their special male rights and privileges!’

      —-
      YES! Say all of that.
      I just read two blogs a couple a days ago by some funfems that really blew my mind. At first they were sitting up here preaching on how our body, as a woman, does not belong to a man. She preached on Nice Guy™ syndrome. She preached on false male feminist allies. She preached on reproductive rights; again, saying how our bodies, spaces and time does not belong to a man.

      But all of a sudden now same dood just puts on a dress and some lipstick and shouts “Imma guuurrrl” in his most [insulting] female voice eva, and voila! He’s now allowed access to our bodies, spaces and time! To tell him to bug off, as you pointed out, now becomes magically transphobic!

      My eyes burned as these women said that it was totally wrong to not allow males into our restroom. My eyes burned as a MtT said that males should be allowed in our restroom, and that if the said male “acted up”, they [the officials at the school] should just take “proper action”. I burned with rage as I thought about what that really meant: That truly women and young women were at the expense of being harmed/traumatized by a male all for the sake of his feelings. The attitude was that action should only be taken AFTER he’s done something to her. Not to prevent it from happening in the first place. For folks to not see how blatantly misogynistic this is should be really telling; “Who cares what happens to women and young women! It’s all about dem male feefees!”
      So now if you’re a so called feminist, it’s okay to rant on those “cis” privileged white, able-bodied males. It’s not okay to rant on those same “cis” privileged white, able-bodied males in a dress. So funfem’s logic is now on the line of:

      Man in pants= Not allowed in spaces, time and body from woman.
      Man in dress= Allowed in space, time and body from woman. [So much to the point of erasing us!]

      This type of logic can really boggle the mind. So reading about people who’s finally waking up to this sorta thing is quite refreshing and comforting.

    Hmm wonder if that male in a frock would make the same claim concerning racism or homophobia. Namely that only after a white male(s) has/have engaged in racial attacks against non-white men should the white men then be held accountable. Or only after heterosexual males have assaulted/committed verbal homophobic insults against a homosexual male then the male perpetrators should be held to account.

    In reality the above scenarios are not commonly accepted/endorsed by men because the issue is all about men and their male right not to be routinely subjected to racism/homophobia. However, women and girls have no such right of legal protection because males masquerading as females must be given the automatic male sex right to infiltrate female only spaces because female right to not to be subjected to male violence/male intrusion is a non-issue!

    I wonder why female only restrooms were created in the first place? Obviously nothing to do with providing females with privacy away from predatory males!!! No it was just a privilege males accorded to females and hence can be withdrawn as and when males demand!

    Male centric illogic being blithely accepted by women because women must on no account ‘upset men’s fragile feelings!’

      “In reality the above scenarios are not commonly accepted/endorsed by men because the issue is all about men and their male right not to be routinely subjected to racism/homophobia.”

      Exactly. Men erase men from having to take responsibility for their actions.From big to small, we aren’t to expect much from males. We are to coo and aww because he cleaned up his own urine from the toilet seat. “Ooo, what a keeper she has on her hands!!”

      He made a child? Blame the woman.
      He put the entire country in debt? Blame the woman.
      He ran out on his family? Blame the woman.
      He cheated on his spouse? Blame the woman.
      He raped a woman? Blame the woman.

      Any crimes that a male commits is not done by a male, it’s done by a person. People are now violent or can rape; as if to say: Women do this just as much!
      So when he commits the crime against another male, it’s erased and blamed on the woman. The trans MtT scream out “Look what transphobic people do to us!”.
      By saying it was a person or people, again, makes men invisible of his crimes and places women in the same boat of being capable of committing such an act. And this is why MtT blame women, feminist and Radfems who don’t accept them as being the equivalent to a rapist/murder.
      This is also why we don’t see FtT fighting to get into men’s only spaces; she already knows what’s in there and she already knows it’s not for her.

      When putting two and two together, even on a basic level, folk will start to see that something doesn’t make much sense when it comes to trans/man logic.

    Bout time for a very public backlash! Twanz theory is fucking dangerous on many obvious levels. It’s frightening to think about all the wacko “progressive” parents who are destroying their gender-non-conforming kid’s life with surgery & drugs. That’s child abuse. Straight up.

    And then there’s the pervert toilet invaders… the other side of the problem. Geez, what a mess.

      “pervert toilet invaders”
      Although a serious problem, I had an amusing vision pop into my head (for those old enough to remember) the old original video game “Space Invaders”, but as the little icons moved across and down the page, they would ‘flash’ (like with an overcoat) randomly. If life imitates art, then I guess we are in for the same.

      You can play the game here: http://www.freeinvaders.org/

        I’m definitely old enough to remember it. 🙂 But I never actually played it. I was much too obsessed with Pac-Man, Centipede, Tank & Galaga to notice much else. A few years later, Castlevania captured my heart, and is still my favorite game series to date. I use emulators to play all of these games. and it’s free of course. I get all of that on RomNation.net.

    “Claiming that this is civil-rights matter and encouraging surgical intervention is in reality to collaborate with and promote a mental disorder.”

    With men like Richard, “Sherri”, Masbruch and Douglas, “Donna”, Perry, we really have to question their overall mental stability. Apparently, men can be sociopathic rapists and serial killers, and if they say they are “women”, society has to bend over backwards and accommodate their delusions. It’s like, “Yes, we know he is a sociopath and bat crap crazy, but his belief that he is a “woman” is real”. Perhaps their belief that they are women is part of their overal mentally deranged state of mind. Below is the Affidavit in the Douglas, “Donna”, Perry charges for first degree murder of three women. This is how insane it’s become. If people look at the top of the Affidavit, it says WF which must mean white female. DNA and fingerprint evidence tie Perry to the three murders of the women. How can females have male DNA? Does the prosecution and defense have to say “Miss Perry’s sperm? We know it’s not possible, but it’s impolite to say it out loud. In the Affidavit, sometimes Perry is referred to as “he”, and sometimes Perry is referred to as “she”. One sentence in the Affidavit says, “she took prostitutes home to have sex with them.” This would make Perry retroactively lesbian, but he still had his penis then and he never identified as lesbian. Why do sane people have to live in this deluded third universe?

    I don’t know whether to laugh or cry when I see the media and the entire legal system falling all over itself to not “mis-gender” this poor, misunderstood victim of evil transphobic bigots. Why can’t people just say, “Look, this dude is not a woman. He is just a crazy killer who hates women”?

    Sometimes I really think I’m living in an alternative universe.

      Laydee is the perfect cover for committing crimes – cops be looking for XY male, not Tootsie.

      And of course, with so many laydees in jail now, they should have enough for their own wings in male prisons – and not be rehoused in women’s prisons, particularly since the majority don’t want to part with the laydeewang­™

    “The government and media alliance advancing the transgender cause has gone into overdrive in recent weeks. On May 30, a U.S. Department of Health and Human Services review board ruled that Medicare can pay for the “reassignment” surgery.”

    Medicare won’t pay for basic things that seniors really need like dentures so they can chew their food or eye glasses so they can see, but grandpa can get a fancy new vagina. Why does a 65 year old man need a sex change?
