He? HE? HE????

Misgendering is literal violence.

Especially for those who are gender fluid.

Or non-binary.

Or whatever the fuck Alok is.

Last I heard Alok was complaining that people stare at Alok in the street. I think Alok was wearing stripey tights, a basque, blue lipstick, and was twirling in a vagina cape at the time. WHY DO PEOPLE STARE??? WHY???

R6, you know the answer to that: they don't find people like themselves even remotely attractive. They just insist that better looking people should be obliged to have sex with them. I'm sure there's a name for making another person feel so guilty that you can get away with having sex with them when they don't want to be doing it.

He could get laid pretty reliably if he buzzed his hair, put on some jeans, and skipped the makeup. He wouldn’t be pulling Andrew Christian models and pro athletes, but he wouldn’t need to beg anymore in public essays for people to fuck him. Back in my day the cross-dressers knew when to turn it off. You know: church, job interviews, kids’ birthdays. Also any time/place where the goal is to get somebody to find you attractive.

As someone who loves hairy guys, they could really be decently attractive if they stopped with the make-up, hair and horrible clothes. I get that they are gender fluid and that them being only a boy might be as silly and unnatural as telling a gay man to just date a woman because it would make life easier.

Let's face it. Both him and Jacob are self loathing. So how better to remain 'gay free" than to present oneself in such a way ( aint none of them capable of "androgyny") and have an entitlement to a specific type of man ( straight) that not one piece of male to male sex will ever occur!

Are there binary or gender fluid people who are actually attractive? I feel they're all ugly and they know it and that's why they become gender fluid. So they can blame how radical they are in being "Under fluid" as the reason as why they don't get laid. It's easier than admitting that you are unfuckable.

"I'm sure there's a name for making another person feel so guilty that you can get away with having sex with them when they don't want to be doing it."

In the straight community they are called INCELS and are called by woman that won't be bullied into having sex with such losers. In the gay community, the intel people play victims as well but due to being a minority, it's "racist/homophobic/bigoted" to call them out for trying to pressure people not having sex with them.

I dont know if its because of their religion or cultural or what. I knew a cutie pie in Atlanta who was as gay as a Judy Garland tribute. His parents knew it,everyone he encountered knew it,even Ray Charles would have seen it. Yet they bought him a Subway franchise,wich he made a ton of money at. They did insist he get married and have a child,but once he did that he was back to living his gay life with his black boyfriend and even the wife (who was gorgeous) didnt seem to care.

[quote]alokvmenon saying bye to achamma was just as hard today as it was one year ago. re-sharing what i wrote last year: for my past few days in Kerala i had stomach bug & in some perverse way i found myself enjoying the sickness because it meant being doted on by achamma. she spent hours on the phone calling every relative keeping them abreast of my bowel movements. she made me porridge & steamed banana, checking on me constantly throughout the day & the night. she told everyone how sad she was that i was sick. on my final night she offered to sleep on the ground next to my bed in case i needed anything. i am constantly thinking about the things i have lost to oceans & this is one of them: the ability to love like that, as if the boundaries between ‘her’ & ‘me’ are non-existent, as if me being sick was her being sick, the porousness, the refusal of individuality. at the same time, the failure of language to express what i felt — to say i am alive because of you. after leaving achamma I thought about the last time i said goodbye to my other grandmother. she died 6 months later. how i recorded a short video from afar for her on her death bed — me fumbling through another goodbye, a bunch of words to say: “I will remember.” why do we say bye instead of i will remember? when my sister left for college i cried every night for a month. at her graduation party i made a slideshow with a poem & cried so hard i had to leave the venue. how do we go on knowing it will never be the same? how do we say goodbye to the people we love? how come it’s goodbyes that let us know just how much we love them? i keep thinking about all of things i wanted to say/could have said/couldn’t say to achamma, to nani, to the people i love or rather, the people who keep me alive. so i write poems & letters & notes from afar miss everyone & everything, regret the limitations of a tongue, the vulgarity of a hand waving goodbye.

Indian culture is anti female AND homophobic. Of course an Indian family is going to cater to a closeted man who claims not to be a man more than face the truth. Indians of ALL castes care very much about image. In the UK there are areas with Indian women who through being of the Brahmin caste thought that their becoming a doctor was a fait accompli simply based upon their birth. When it was realised at University that their intelligence had plateaued, instead if becoming nurses or taking it down a notch, they simply became housewives or single.

The MP Keith Vaz , Hindu, rotten to the core in a way that he hopes that no more of his horrible Tea gets exposed is married to an Indian wife who is very mercenary and who knew from the get go that the father of her children is a barely closeted gay man who is sleazy to his core. Also, I've yet to meet an Indian of Hindu extraction that cares less about "whiteness" than the average Klan member, too. Non Indians of Guyanese and Trinidadian extraction know this to be true. Indians of Jamaican extraction got themselves "cooled down" by the overwhelming non ambiguous black population and are far cooler and "aware". Indian = supremacist in too many cases.

I never would have heard of Alok, Jacob or Meredith if it hasn't been for Datalounge. I don't know whether to laugh or cry about that.

I used to head an LGBT staff support network with my previous employer. Since I left 3 of the gay men there (all in their mid-late 30s) have suddenly declared via social media that they are now trans and/or gender fluid. I'm obviously not inside these guy's heads but I genuinely think this is all due to trans being flavour of the month and huge issues with internalised homophobia (2 of them at least grew up in abusive strongly religious households).

Going back to these Instagram whores; what exactly do they bring to the world? Their only 'talent' seems to be self-promotion and total lack of self awareness or dress sense. Actually maybe that's not true - they thrive on attention which is why they dress so ludicrously. I bet they live by Oscar Wilde's maxim that the only thing worse than being talked about is not being talked about. I know I'm adding to this by contributing to this thread but all they invoke in me is laughter and pity but mainly total indifference.

I agree with Magdalen Burn's take down of these fools. You want to wear a dress? Fine go ahead. You're a bloke who like to wear a dress. If that's really the most important or interesting thing about your life must be pretty fucking empty. You're just cross dressers, and that's fine. How come being 'non-binary' is all about looking blokey/hairy in a dress? Why not look feminine in (say) a suit? Oh sorry Annie Lennox did that about 40 years ago and Bowie was doing the man in a dress shtick 50 years ago.

Within three months, I had a serious boyfriend for the first time in years, a glitter dirtbag faggot like myself. My boyfriend and the exes share some similarities: They’re all Irish on at least one side, for instance, and tend to think I’ll like the same music (I have never received a mix from a partner that doesn’t have a track by Metric). But there is something particularly whole-feeling about desiring a masculinity that was chosen.

One of the happiest things about the unholy trinity of Alok Vaid Menon, Meredith Talusan, and Jacob Tobia is that the further they get from their college years, the less the media will somehow assume (as they have done in recent years) they speak for youth culture. They will have to have media careers based on actual talents rather than on outrageousness and sassiness, and they will no longer be able to make those hateful "this is me sanctimoniously lecturing to you about identity politics" that Vaid Menon and Tobia love making and be taken seriously (they will seem too old--no one finds affected sassiness cute in middle aged people).

I will be very curious to see where all three of them are in ten years. I doubt they will be getting anything like the attention they are getting now.

I can’t help but be fascinated by the self absorption. It’s just on a whole other level. It’s also clear that Alok is no more oppressed than most of us. Parents are accepting and subsidise him, gets invited to this talk and that conference. Travels. Clearly gets enough to eat.

The only oppression he must experience is from being shouted at because of the way he dresses. That has nothing to do with being trans or fluid. He might be colourblind, I suppose. All of us, no matter how we ‘ identify ‘ would experience the same if we dressed in garishly coloured, ill fitting, mismatched clothes.

It actually comes across as nothing more than him being terrified of sex. It has nothing to do with breaking down stereotypes. He’s knows If he trusses himself up like a pantomime dame he can pout and pretend he is a sexual being while knowing he is making the vast majority of people, of any persuasion, cross the street. Then he can boohoo about it.

All three of these men (Jabob, Alok and Meredith) come from money. All three of them have degrees from Ivies or prestigious schools. All three of them have been gifted with cushy jobs, glamorous interviews, and responsibility-free lives where their privilege has let them pursue whatever absurd fancy tickles them- be it somersaulting-onto-a-dildo performance art or writing odes to "kinky little girls"- and not face one iota of real censure or accountability for their behavior.

I have the distinct feeling his "harassment" from white women is them actively avoiding him. The justification after his claims of white women being the harassers is to talk about people not accepting gender non compliance and "disappearing" people like him from being centered. ("disappearing gender nonconformity from the public imagination")

That to me sounds like a man who is being rejected, ignored or avoided. Yeah, maybe women do avoid him because they think that a dude dressed the way he does looks like a sexual deviant. Is that fair? Maybe. He did say that children are responsible for their own sexual assaults which is the height of fucked-up-ness. I think you'd find most women would avoid a dude with a Swastika on their shirt too. If you want to signal your absolute unique specialness through your clothing, fine. But you don't get to dictate how others think of you based on that. If I think you're a rapist, I'm going to avoid you and the more you complain about it the more justified I feel avoiding you. Sometimes people may think I appear threatening or scary, I don't write articles about them "disappearing" me or admonish them for doing so. Who gives a fuck about these fleeting interactions with passers-by? Why do you care that they are avoiding you? It's so creepy.

"i see things other people don’t see"

Your insistence on being worshiped as some sort of visionary is a big part of why you have no lasing relationships, Alok. A little humility and the ability to laugh at yourself (as all humans, trans or not, should be able to do) would go a long way.

"in minutes i can establish the energy in a room & whether i need to leave it. this is how i have survived: by sensitizing myself to everyone & everything."

As many DLers have noted many times, this is what literally every woman in human history has had to do for hundreds of thousands of years. When they do it, it's utterly unremarkable and barely noticed; when you do it, you expect endless praise and martyr status.

This was posted on another thread (I didn't write this) but I think it's worth repeating:

[quote]obia is a sexually frustrated crossdresser and publicity seeker, who has written previously that people don't find him sexually attractive ("Go Ahead, Objectify Me"). His trans activist friend, Mark (aka "Meredith") Talusan, wrote a long essay for VICE about how no one wants to have sex with him ("Why Can't My Famous Gender Nonconforming Friends Get Laid?").

[quote]So obviously, the problem isn't with him or anything he might be saying or doing. Obviously, the problem is the 99.7% of men on planet Earth whom he calls "cis." Almost all of the men on Earth, he tells us confidently but without any actual evidence - are secretly jealous of him, in particular the way he walks around with a beard and wearing a woman's dress. Virtually no males do this in any culture, from the most free to the most strict, but secretly they all want to be just like Jacob Tobia.

[quote]Jacob, no one is jealous and - straight up - no one wants to have sex with you. For the simple reason that you look bizarre and gross. Bizarre, gross appearance is a signal to potential mates of possible mental instability and it repels them.

Interesting comment about Jacob Tobia on Reddit:

[quote]I know a bit of the backstory here through personal connections. Pretty much everyone who knows this guy agrees, privately, that he's just an effeminate gay man who wears makeup, jewelry, and women's clothes and hairstyles purely for the attention, which he craves and cannot get enough of. But the same people, on social media, congratulate him for being such a brave trailblazer. The social hypocrisy is enough to make you vomit. And he reportedly got a six-figure deal on his new book. Opportunism anyone?

[quote]He's already written a number of "Why won't anybody hit on me or fuck meeeee!" articles. No, Jacob, some of us simply do not find either your look or your oversized narcissistic ego attractive.

[quote]He describes himself as "genderqueer." He's basically a 21st C. version of Corporal Klinger from the TV show MASH.

[quote]He's just another attention whore who's figured out how to make a career for himself on social media, riding on the success and sacrifices of LGB activists who made possible a world where he can play dress-up and pretend that that makes him a revolutionary.

One of the things that's irritating about A-bloke and his mates (Jacob T and Twavis Avabanana) is the laziness in execution. The schtick is to wear a garment, typically a dress, that by its cut alone, looks wrong for your body shape, then pose in a way that accentuates the fact that your box-shaped, hairy torso is a poor fit for the shoulderless dress trying to show off a waist that doesn't exist.

The next step is to have a Woke cry and a Daily Mail Sad Face selfie when people say it looks shit. Men can look damn fine in a kilt, or robes, and men can wear dresses that are tailored to complement their body type, in colours and fabric that suit their features but the game is too look as awkward /silly, and out-of-place as possible. to get sympathy and patreon dollars.

"sometimes i worry coherence is another form of containment — that in our earnest attempts to transcend gender binaries, we put more of them into place."

Statements like these are so telling. They know the tide is turning. They know that gender ideology is nonsensical and will eventually be tossed onto the ash heap of history. They make these seemingly contradictory statements so when that happens, and gender-critical people try to hold them accountable, they can respond with, "Um, duh-- that's what I was saying all along!" None of them are ever going to take responsibility for the massive amount of suffering they caused.

Jacob's the guy who went into twanz meltdown and blamed Ikea for his own sleeping in. The delivery arrived at the agreed time, but MrTobia was asleep and wouldn't open the door to allow the workers to complete the delivery by taking it indoors and installing according to instructions. Perhaps MrTobias could simply ask for a door-to-door service next time, and have the furniture wait on his doorstep for him, or...maybe he could set an alarm and wake up on time. Just like a normal person would. Because a normal person-someone who understands s/he is not the only customer in the world, and delivery drivers work a busy schedule. It's not like they enjoy holding items of furniture in the truck all day, using extra fuel, then returning to depot, all because some incel can't be fucked opening a door to let them in.

What amused me was Tobias was obviously trying to twist his not waking up for his delivery into another daily struggle poor oppressed trans people like him have to overcome every day of their miserable existence.

I think Alok needs to stop calling himself trans. He is not transitioning into anything. He is gender non-binary, which is not the same thing.

Trans by defintion should be a cis gender person transitioning to the opposite gender.

That’s true, R439, but I think this is more about gender than a male who likes to play with Barbies.

Non-binary people are both male and female and neither male nor female at the same time. In my mind, real non-binary people would be against cis male/cis female/trans male/trans female because they reject only being one gender, regardless of whether it’s cis or trans.

"A Gender, A Prayer"

I don’t know if I believe in God, but I do believe in trans femmes. And if there isn’t something divine about surviving and thriving in a world predicated on your denigration then I swear there is nothing holy on this Earth.

"Weight"

my mother gave birth to me & i gave birth to her sadness

i wonder: which weighed more?

"Lazy"

when cis women tell me to shave "if i want to look like a 'real' woman" i remember that men are so lazy they make women do the work of patriarchy for them.

The Biography of Pink - by Aiko Aiko I A

how do you write the biography of a color?

a long time ago: pink was born. pink had lots of friends. then pink was taken hostage got a life-sentence, had to serve it in this foreign land called “gender”

how do you write a romance novel about a color? is the color the protagonist or the villain? does the color love you back?

at age 2 i refused to wear anything but pink by age 11 i stopped. substituted the floral and lisa frank for a pair of grey slacks. the thing is: i was desi. which meant my mom didn’t let me near Hot Topic which meant the closest i was permitted to goth was a pair of grey dress shoes, slacks, and a knit sweater, from spelling bee to blasting Evanescence in my room, i was ready for anything

how do you host a funeral for a color? where does it take place? was it when they pushed you down? was it when they called you a faggot? was it when you feared for your life? not only from their hands, but yours? was it when you began to fear everything you used to love? is that when it died, the color? when you feared everything you used to love ?

these days i still fear everything i used to love. see the magazines say “girl power” wonder what kind of a girl does pink love? what kind of girl does pink punish?

wonder when does their romance novel become our horror film?

want to shout at the feminists but don’t know how: the only pink i was allowed to keep was the one in my mouth so i used it so much at some point it became photo studio full of negatives i’m still trying to process every time i speak about it a couple of old polaroids come out of a boy wearing pink, a girl wearing blue, a body before the storm: puberty OR a natural disaster ?

it’s not that i wanted to be a girl i wanted to be pink.

it’s not that i wanted to be fragile, i wanted permission to be fragile

it’s not that i wanted to be weak, i wanted to be offered help.

at my funeral make sure they dress me in a pink birthday dress, frilly and superfluous. lower me down, watch me come to life.

If only Alok was aborted.

Genderqueers like Alok have disproportionate difficulty accessing abortions. Even if they’re able to find a provider in their state within a reasonable driving distance, often the provider will turn them down due to lack of fetus, uterus, or having had intercourse in the last nine months. It’s a downright disgrace. Trans women of color didn’t fight so hard at Stonewall for this type of malpractice to be perpetrated against their descendants’ brown trans bodies. It doesn’t matter if you can physically be impregnated, abortion is your right regardless l. To deny any person that right is a slap in the face of all the transwomen who fought the establishment back at Stonewall.

You’d think only trans women of color were present at Stonewall...

I think people like him seek and crave that shock value. If people completely ignored their clownish look they would look for another looks or premise to get attention and shock people.

When I was in my 20s and still going out to bars back in the 90s/00s, there were always one or two weirdos in the bar who looked absolutely fucking crazy like Alok and co.. They were just ignored by the other patrons. I would imagine this is what's happening to Alok, Jacob etc. Nobody pays them much mind in public, and they can't stand being ignored. Of course, the total lack of self-awareness prevents them from realizing why.

by Anonymousreply 56205/19/2019

I thought Alok's problem (well one of them) was no one wanted to fuck it, so why does it need access to abortions?

I don't think alok is comparing abortion for himself, he mentioned "non binary" people and "transmen" (which could all be female and still get pregnant). he's not mental. yet.

Wait a second - these people want to be known as their self-identified gender and freak out when you dare challenge that, or 'dead name' them. Yet when inescapable biological reality comes along, it's fine for them to be their actual biological sex again? Make your minds up ladies/gents/whatevers.

This is so sexist. Any small difference is a new gender; he can't just accept he is an effeminate man.

Nonbinary: I don't feel like a man/woman. It's all based on cultural expectations of masculinity and femininity. In the end, they end up reinforcing sexist views forced on men and women.

Has Ms Metz been loaning out her snack purse to Alok? To the poster who claimed there’s not much there there, well, I must disagree- they are plumping up like the Goodyear Blimp.

I see more people are referring to themselves as homosexual people given how trans activism and the queer/nonbinary crew attempt to redefine the boundaries of homosexual attraction.

Believe it or not, this last week I went to an end-of-the-year teaching workshop on "Working with Trans Students"at the university where I work, and the facilitator showed us a youtube video of none other than Alok Vaid Menon discussing his intersectionality as part of her initial presentation! I almost fell over because I thought of this thread.

We'll soon need to open part 2. I hope Alok has some great new looks lined up for us to admire. Personally I don't think he'll ever top this one, where he looks about 70.
