AfterEllen and the Trans

So, anyone know what's going on at AfterEllen? Soon after this response to multiple attacks was published on the site, all updates to the site stopped. I mentioned it in another thread and someone linked to the executive editor's Facebook or Twitter page but there wasn't any info there either.

Has one of the last bastions defending actual lesbians on the internet been taken out? It seems like DL and AfterEllen were the only two places where common sense reigned.

by Anonymousreply 34713 hours ago

Is there a tl;dr version?

by Anonymousreply 102/07/2019

It sounds like AfterEllen hired some "woke" writers who shifted the tone of the site towards trans inclusiveness (some women have penises! Deal with it!) which of course caused actual lesbians to leave the site, causing a decline in revenues, and causing the site to change hands and the Woke Writers to be fired.

The Woke Writers then went to outlets like the Advocate and OUT and other publications and started bashing AfterEllen and predicting its imminent demise - for years now.

Some rag mag called DIVA put out a trans inclusiveness statement with the dramatic title "Not in our name" calling for editors and writers to be condemned if they didn't Stand With Trans™ and all that entails. AE decided not to sign it because of the violent language about attacking those who didn't agree and then the unholy floodgates of Woke Twitter deluged on them as the various publications published think pieces and other editorial rants disguised as journalism and attacked AfterEllen with the fury of a trans activist scorned.

It seems AE doesn't jive with the "trans women can be lesbians too!!!" thought police and decided not to suck up to them with a stupid statement, and got blasted for it.

That's what I have deduced by reading the post and the comments, anyway.

OP there have been two updates to the site since that was posted on Jan 15th, looks like. Not sure what their typical posting schedule is or maybe they just took a few weeks off.

by Anonymousreply 302/07/2019

For the most part, it's updated at least every other day and usually every day. They'll take an occasional long weekend off during a holiday or something. That's why it's strange that it stopped updating so quickly following that particular post, especially knowing that they've been being attacked all over the Twitterverse.

Count me as one who believes that the anti-trans movement doesn't belong on DL and never has. It's a non-issue for gay men. Trans people don't threaten us. We have very little to do with them, and they with us. This is strictly a battle between radical lesbians and radical trans. By the way, the majority of trans are not radical - nor are the majority of lesbians. As someone who has participated in a number of anti-trans threads over the past several months, and one of the very few who injects actual facts into the discussion rather than anecdotes which get repeated infinitum, I can say that the hysteria lies on the anti-trans side. Let me reiterate one fact here. For the past number of years, the AVERAGE number of surgical trans operations has been between 2000 and 3000/year, with a small increase every year. Less than one out of 1000 Americans/per year undergoes this operation. Compare that to 1,800.000 plastic surgeries of all types, just to get a small comparison going. Half of that 3000 is for Female to Male, which for most in the anti-trans camp represent less of a problem. That means that about 1500 Male to Female operations are performed in a year. And this is a national crisis which represents total gay and lesbian erasure because????????...................................................

In spite of the massive publicity about a very few, there is much opposition in the medical field to sex reassignment surgery before someone has reached 18. Possibly hormones beginning at age 16. The numbers of exceptions, except in the case of children who are born intersex is inifinitessimaly small - and yet, again, this is a NATIONAL CRISIS, because?????........................................

I don't see how being against the sterilization and chemical/surgical mutilation of children who studies show mostly turn about to be gay is "anti-trans."

I agree through, the heterosexual feminist activists who have invaded DL and ingratiated themselves amongst gay men are a bit tiresome. You ladies far overestimate the power of this website to spark political action and would be better suited applying for positions within "LGBT" organizations as "bisexuals" or "allies." The reins of power are not held on DL. You actually have to start attacking the head of the monster, and it's not by partnering with the Heritage foundation, which promotes and defends X-tian conversion therapy for gays. It does your cause no good to be associated with these groups.

15 - If I was supporting a movement that has let paedophiles under cover infiltrate it, hates half of the world's population, especially the non compliant ones amongst it, is homophobic, is boosted by Straight , white, male money and whims and is the first top/down "rights" purview going under cover as "civil rights" and is jam packed with the personality disordered, I'd be a hateful, raging,paranoid mess, too. Considering that the first objective question asked about the movement and it's goal post changing "philosophy" always brings a vision in a sane person's mind of a house built of sand, crumbling...what else is a transactivist to do , but to go "extra"? There is no way that their aims or arguments can be won with reason. They either have to "keep it ethereal" with talk of "souls", "born in the wrong body", "female brains" to attract the simple and "nice" who are too follow fashion and need to be seen to be "correct", to the point that they educate all intelligence out of themselves, or they have to attack and lie ( like the unhinged fool on this thread whose lies can be proven easily, but what is "proof" to the co morbidly disordered?) and doxx.

They'll never be able to take the foot off the gas. As each generation is born, the signals that have been laid down in our DNA to tell what something is NOT and not what something IS will always remain in all creatures of Creation, including and most importantly, humans. Transactivsts will have to pull a permanent King Herod with people's firstborns, for ever more for them to even be one hundredth successful in upending The Paradigm, permanently. I mean , it took for Neoliberalism to be a thing for Transactivism to make it this far and people hardly believe their idiocy that has only been finessed by money changing hands, white mediating class conformity and anti child, ,anti female stunts pulled by so called "good people", also in awe to Neoliberalism, just not as much as "them over there" .

They'll never win. They know it. That is why they went through the "I got to be nice" white, mediating class types first and their POC adherents. A set of people more conformist and passive aggressive do not exist in Creation. This type of person knows how to do "overseer" better than anybody else. I just hope that they have been practising their Kung Fu for when "Mr and Mrs Rough and Tumble " comes for them, because that is what they are going to need for trying to be the boss of everybody. In fact I give a "chapeau" to malignant Transactivists for using them to hide behind. Entitled recognised Entitled, I guess.

R19 You know nothing about pediatric transition and puberty blockers, then. The exponential rise in referrals and the activism surrounding it. Don't sit there and say you're "just injecting facts" when it's abundantly clear you're unversed on these issues and have already expressed your bias that you think the gay and lesbian response (which you characterize as 'radical') is overblown.

Mutilating gay children to legitimize a few wealthy white heterosexual men's fetishes is radical. Declaring that homosexuality doesn't exist if someone falsely believes themselves to be the opposite sex is radical. Trans receiving 2x as much individual funding from LGBT orgs as any other letter in the acronym is radical. Men in women's prisons (wherein one raped 4 women) is radical. Men setting world records in women's sports is radical.

Regardless of how trivial an impact you think this has on gay men, and I doubt very much you actually are one, there will a blowback to this Orwellian insanity. Humans do not change sex. Men who think they are women are not lesbians.

20 - Well associating with pedophiles and pedophile defenders who are very prominent within Transactivism which has used "LGB" as a means to couch their degeneracy in "respectability" ( I can't find anything more homophobic than the "gays are deviants" arguments pretty much anywhere, but that's just me. It used to be LGB for a fuck long time, too, but "funny money," eh?) hasn't done the cause of Transactivism any harm , has it?

Or are you just being disingenuous with your demand for "purity" from anti transactivists?

by Anonymousreply 2402/07/2019

R24 The "trans pedophilia" connection is a losing argument for feminist activists. They are not good at picking their battles or recognizing how deeply offensive it is to the same gay men they're trying to get fired up about the trans issue impacting L's and G's.

Couple that with the Heritage foundation partnership and it feeds into the trans activist narrative about 'TERFs' being a right wing hate group. Most of them I think are just desperate since they've been exiled from the left. However, the excuse that a lot of those Heritage radical feminists are lesbians and cant be homophobic doesn't really cut it since we know how many lesbians feel about us and it's hardly any different from the rest of their Heritage buddies.

Does anyone have any comments about AfterEllen? (Also, I'm not reading the lengthy essays above - you guys may think you're making points but very few will see them because of the walls of text).

The aggressive ass on this thread should just be blocked. No good can come of engaging with it. It's acting exactly like AfterEllen's statement talks about - bullying in an attempt to intimidate and silence speech it doesn't agree with.

In the statement AE mentioned the point of such tactics wasn't to primarily destroy the target, but to cause everyone else to be afraid to stand up and say anything and to further give an incentive for showing them support, as in their mercy they won't attack you.

Any nuance or distinction between topics goes out the window because their goal is not to discuss, but to silence.

My comment about AfterEllen is I'm glad it exists and they should seek donations in order to advertise aggressively as it seems more and more lesbian youth are being indoctrinated into "give lady penis a try" queer media like AutoStaddle and the other gender centric ones. Memoree Joelle has to get serious otherwise AE could disappear like a lot of other principled lesbian publications. Being snide on twitter isn't going to win the war. She should invest in some bots to inflate her tweets like TRAs and "microinfluencers" do.

And what is this factoid supposed to prove, other than the fact that something like 80% of adult TIMs decide to keep their dicks and thus remain a threat to women when they insist on coming in to the women's locker room? Because as has been pointed out over and over, most adult TIMs are attracted to women.

Contrary to adult transgenders, most if not all trans-identified kids are gay, as we are the ones that exhibit gender non-conformity at this age. The big trans surge has only happened in the last 5 years. Most of these gay kids probably haven't reached the age where they can have operations yet. I predict a big increase in operations in the years to come.

R49 I've uh... done some research. In fact I'd say I'm probably more versed on these cases than you are.

It is still a losing political point given the years anti-gay activists spent saying, and are still saying, the exact same things about gay men. There have also been gays that have "gotten in trouble for messing with kids," but when this becomes a tool with which to impugn all gay men as sexual deviants and molesters that do not belong around and should not be able to adopt children it crosses the line into bigotry and you will not be winning over any gay men that recognize this line of attack as being hurled at them. Feminist activists like yourself still obsess madly over the young drag kid while not batting an eye at the enormity of child exploitation that comes in the form of toddler beauty pageants.

I repeat, the tranny pedophilia connection is a losing talking point for a mainstream audience. Especially when it veers into derangement like "trans creating living transhumanist fuck puppets out of children with puberty blockers" stuff. Do some research on that.

[quote]the tranny pedophilia connection is a losing talking point

The opposite is true. Just like: “transwomen are women.” The opposite is true. Transwomen are men.

This is so obviously an attempt to eliminate women as the gatekeepers to children. That’s why some pedos want to impersonate women. They want kids to trust them. Kids generally trust women over men. With good reason...per Michael Jackson, Bryan Singer...catholic priests.

Mainstream people are disgusted by pedophilia. We don’t want children & babies victimized by predatory men.

Allowing men in women’s spaces is like allowing foxes in hen houses. It’s dangerous. It defies logic. It’s counter to our basic survival instinct.

Hide behind gay rights all you want. But I and other gays will fight you every step of the way. Just like we did in the 70s when the man-boy love freaks tried to join us.

T is a lie. Men are not women. It’s impossible to change sex. Tons of “transwomen” have harmed children & women. It’s inevitbale. You can identify out of male pattern violence.

R76 yes it’s the double standard in ‘erasure’. The same people who call for everyone not straight to be referred to as the queer community and will say “what’s harmful in using a term that is inclusive of everyone?” Will then bend over backwards to make sure bisexuals are able to have their identity validated.

As a bisexual I copied and pasted this statement so I could make the same point that I later saw R82 did. Bisexuals are indeed currently harassed not to use the phrase “bisexual” but rather “pansexual”, as “bisexual” is considered transphobic.

Further, bisexuals are considered transphobic because if they want to date men and women without gender dysphoria - aka XY men and XX women - this is considered bigoted as apparently bisexuals lack discrimination anyway so should just accept penises on transwomen and vulvas on transmen.

I actually am attracted to people at peace with their bodies and genitals and it’s coercive to push me to date people I’m not attracted to, just like it’s coercive to push lesbians to date people with penises, or to push men to date people with vulvas.

And, a question...how can these organizations fight against gay conversion therapy but then fight for the surgical and chemical conversion of gay kids into 'trans' kids?

[quote]A woman is a female human being. The word woman is usually reserved for an adult, with girl being the usual term for a female child or adolescent. The plural women is also sometimes used for female humans, regardless of age, as in phrases such as "women's rights". Women with typical genetic development are usually capable of giving birth from puberty until menopause. There are also trans women (those who have a male sex assignment that does not align with their gender identity),[1] and intersex women (those born with sexual characteristics that do not fit typical notions of male or female).

Everyone knows that trans women aren’t actually women. However many times you demand that we pretend males are females, the fact is that not giving, say, prostate screens to trans women or cervical cancer screens to trans men will kill people, because it turns out biology is actually relevant.

Is this stupidity nearly over yet, please? On this topic I find straight men often more sensible than gay guys, hugely depressingly, because at least their c*cks will tell them what is and isn’t a woman, or, less crudely, because some of them love women and have them as partners, then they are better-placed to understand what’s at stake. Some gay guys have been fantastic allies but others are just calling lesbians TERFs etc because they don’t see why female-only spaces matter, for example, and it’s awful to see.

The Equality Act V 2019 was rolled out two days ago to great fanfare by the Democrats.

This is the act that will erase both gays and women by redefining the word "sex" to include "gender identity." Gays (same-sex attracted people) and women will cease to exist as a legal category and a lot of legislation passed to guarantee their rights will go bye-bye and they will be incapable of organizing for their own specific needs.

It will also open up every women's space to biological men. As well, women will be forced, for instance, to be pat down by a biologically male TSA agent.

All to say that it's time to get off this board and get on the phone. Call Congress - every single one of those fuckers, call journalists and call (former) gay organizations, especially the All-Trans-All-The-Time Human Rights Campaign, because those (former) gay organizations are the one pushing for the destruction of gays (and women).

I think of a lot of trans people as people who were rejected all through their lives---for whatever reasons: appearing too butch or femme, cross-dressing, being interested in 'opposite gender activities,' and other aspects of their personalities and beings that somehow attracted negative attention, bullying, and being made to feel marginal. From this isolation and loneliness grows a feeling that things would be so much better on the other side of the fence. I have no idea what makes a guy think life is going to be better as a woman; women are a world-wide sub-class, and being able to wear more clothes and play with the accessories of fashion doesn't make up for the way women are treated. 'Becoming a woman' doesn't magically open doors of acceptance, and to imagine one will be accepted as a 'real woman' by society is just opening doors to a whole new kind of rejection. (Women who'd prefer to be men is a little easier to understand, since men have the upper hand in pretty much all societies in the world.)

Trans people need to be able to live and work in peace. I believe in civil/human rights for all people. But no one can demand love or sexual attraction from another person. It is no one's DUTY to fuck you, in ANY identity or incarnation. (I'm not saying all trans people demand this from others. Some MtF trans people have their former hetero wives stand by them and remain married, so they do live that 'lesbian' life they sought.) But transitioning doesn't seem to give some people what they hoped for, and so they try to force it.

Unfortunately, those who do demand this sexual/romantic acceptance of their trans status are lined up to continue to be rejected by many people who are simply not attracted to them. DEMANDING acceptance gets one attention on the interwebs, but it still doesn't result in the type of love/sexual acceptance that is craved.

The type of activism that is prevalent today (online) makes a lesser number of screaming outliers seem more numerous and powerful than they are. AfterEllen should continue to write for and about the stated target audience: lesbians. Individually, everyone just has to say yes or no to whomever wishes to 'date' them. Your reasons are your reasons, and no one can force you into a relationship you're not into.

This is just my take on the inter-personal stuff. The usurping women's spaces and fields of challenge is another huge subject.

by Anonymousreply 145Last Saturday at 11:00 AM

R145, I personally think most MTFs are straight men embodying a sex fetish.

I absolutely believe these men are in it for sexual reasons only...not just cross-dressing, but they want to conquer where they are not allowed...women’s restrooms, showers, dressing rooms, dorms, prisons, sports teams, etc. That by itself excites them.

They get off on it. Their dicks get hard when they put on a dress. Make no mistake that they will jerk off in stalls. They will surreptitiously peek & even record women in undress & vulnerable.

Allowing them in is like allowing peeping toms to spy through windows & drill holes to see through doors without permission.

Heck, maybe V will be added to LBTQIA+ to be inclusive of voyeurs.

Oh, and don’t forget the exhibitionists...another sex fetish. I saw a “transwoman” flash his underwear at church. In a pew. That was a couple years ago. I see him on lesbian dating apps, but not at church lately. Guess he didn’t score on any chicks at my church & decided to move on. Perhaps he should try the Methodists next.

Ever see the movie “Porky’s”...? Men secretly spying women in group showers is a popular male fantasy. In fact, it’s why porn is so popular.

R145 I agree. What us abundantly clear but what no one wants to talk about is that the vast majority of trans people have been sexually abused as young kids.

They are profundly disordered personalities and some of them don't have boundaries when it comes to sex and consent. They believe other people can slip their identity on and off like a glove because they have no stable idea of self. They shouldn't be discriminated against, obviously. But to allow people with such a clear mental and emotional instability to dictate the definition of " Normal" to society is foolish and dangerous. They need help.

R162 I think we all went through that at the beginning.

I hadn’t appreciated that it could be a fetish and that the line between cross-dressers and trans would basically be erased entirely.

My naïveté on that score has since been well and truly destroyed... Whilst I’m not sure the dressing as a schoolgirl thing would get much support from anyone, I’m meant to think that person is a woman if they say so despite the fact they’re clearly a fucking perverted guy (transage, ridiculous; transracial, offensive; transgender is LITERALLY THE SEX THAT THEY SAY THEY ARE WITH NO DISTINCTIONS blah blah blah).

Americans have organized to save women's sports, forming an organization called, you guessed it "Save Women's Sports"

In the UK, the organization is Fair Play for Women, which has a lot of information on not just women's sports, but also how the Transgender Lobby has destroyed women's rights.

What I will never get is why the Transgender Rights Activists are so fucking narcissistic that they can't see that kicking women out of their own competitions will lead to even dopey "men's men" like Joe Rogan start to question their movement. Like Martina, it will start with average people being "WTF?" about men like the Cyclopath taking over women's sports, which will then lead to them questioning the entire Transgender Movement.

Disagree. Straight men who identify as transwomen know they hardly pass to anyone, and from what I've observed, that's part of the turn-on: forcing others, especially women, to state something they do not believe. Gay trans-identified males primp and preen constantly, because they are trying to please those who are higher on the food chain: straight males. But if those same straight males identify as trans, they "let themselves go" because THEY CAN.

These women call themselves feminists and think they're all brave and noble and shit, but they are actually handmaidens to violent, misogynistic, heterosexual, middle-aged, relatively wealthy, delusional, narcissistic white men with penises.

[quote] IT IS TIME FOR THE ANTI-VIOLENCE SECTOR TO PUSH BACK AGAINST TRANSMISOGYNY In the last week, we have witnessed and experienced an increase of transphobic, transmisogynistic hate speech online and backlash in response to a recent funding decision made by the City of Vancouver. As a trans-inclusive anti-violence organization, we feel a sense of responsibility to provide a counter-narrative to this trans-exclusionary radical feminism. It’s no secret that there is a long, difficult history between feminism and trans people. This history is rooted in the right wing ideology that queer and trans people and their issues are somehow oppositional to the issues of cisgender women and feminism as a whole. This conflict often shows up in the realm of gender-specific spaces, in shelters and anti-violence organizations. Feminism has been used as a means of spreading hatred against trans people, particularly trans women, and has co-opted the anti-violence movement to implicitly and explicitly exclude trans women. It’s difficult for WAVAW to grapple with this history, especially as feminists doing anti-violence work. This is especially true as trans-exclusionary radical feminism is alive and well in Vancouver; it’s no secret that we’re working amongst a hotbed of transmisogyny that has a global reach.

It's sad that it's allowed on this website; and I'm sure makes others as much as me less likely to engage on this website.

The anti-trans zealots are also anti-drag and anti-porn. Increasingly, it's becoming clear to us -- the primary group on this website -- that anti-trans dislike us too, perhaps because we refuse to go along with their hate and all it entails (e.g. anti Democrat, pro Republican; threats of violence against transwomen's genitals using shears). I'm talking to them. I want us to work together and create a positive community.

Transwomen are a tiny, tiny proportion of the total population. They're greatly outnumbered by their haters. They're an oppressed minority, and despite how loud the transhaters are I don't think they speak for most of Datalounge.

That’s what womanhood is to them: being ridiculously femme and adorable. They can’t even comprehend feminism, yet they’re all “feminists.”

Accenture, a large London Corporation (Stonewall Top 100) tonight called 7 police officers to forcefully eject lesbian women from a public speaking event. The women were doing nothing other than sitting and waiting for the event to start.

by Anonymousreply 313Yesterday at 2:21 PM

Apparently Susie Green, CEO of Mermaids , a charity to support 'trans' children, was speaking or something and refused to leave her room until the women were ejected. Susie Green took her 16 year old son to Thailand to be castrated into a trans girl because it was illegal in the UK at that age. Thailand has since raised the age itself. Apparently, the child liked to wear dresses when they were young and appeared feminine - obviously declared themselves a girl and that was the end of it. This now means to her and Mermaids that every child who says it's the opposite sex should be believed and transitioned asap.

Susie now enjoys tormenting women and reporting tweets to the police

R301, in you linked article Indya Moore schools us: "Dear cis people, I hope you one day evolve beyond penises and vaginas.”

From what I've seen the past few years it seems many trans people themselves are mostly defined by their genitalia and other physical signs of gender. I wouldn't necessarily call that evolving. And I've seen enough trans girls wanking their dicks on Chaturbate to know they certainly are not all women. I was practically traumatized by a tall drag queenish trans woman with huge tits doing a show there who spoke with obviously fake little girl voice. It seemed so weird to see her/him wanking her/his dick. It was extremely off-putting, partly because his dick was so ugly but mostly because the combination of everything about her/him seemed so extremely fake.

As a gay man I'm a bit sad to find how I'm more and more against the trans movement. I'm fairly certain I'm annoyed by some trans people the same way homophobes are annoyed by guys like me. I was bullied in my teens for being gay and obviously there's still homophobia around. I don't like that now I'm the bully against some trans people. Especially because I really do believe some trans people truly feel better living as their trans self. It's just that especially trans women should not expect to be treated as natural women. If they accepted that they can't compete with natural women in sports or expect to be treated everywhere like natural women things would be more simple. But no, they want to rule the world and define everything around them without hearing "cis" people. Like mentioned many times before it's a very male attitude. BTW, using the word cis is just absolutely infuriating. Trans people can use it if they want but why should we? I mean seriously from all the people on the planet under 1 % are trans.

LA-based feminists seem to be forming a group. On the Reddit GenderCritical sub, Seven Sisters graduates were also forming a resistance group. The various Resisters in the UK have been successful at raising awareness of the Transtapo.

Organization has to happen now in the US. The Equality Act might pass the House, but with any luck will die there (while ensuring that Donnie Fatso and his band of Cretins wins 2020) but on a state level, the Trans Lobby is sneaking the same kind of legislation through without anyone knowing. They have to be stopped on the state and local level or women and gay rights will be lost.

So it used to be "transsexual," but "trans folk" knew that the general public would never buy that. Probably the first sex-related lesson every human throughout history has learned is "boys have a penis girls have a vagina." It just wouldn't work. So "trans folk" decided to go about it with a bait-and-switch by:

1. Separating Sex and Gender. Yes, sex is immutable, the activists said, but *gender* is a social construct. You identify with the gender that matches your sex, but I don't! My brain isn't a male brain, but a female brain (they still use this even though the science has completely failed to support it, ever). Because if gender isn't biological, then who are you to tell me what my gender is??

2. Replacing "sex" in all of their jargon with gender. Thus "sex reassignment surgery" became "gender confirmation surgery" and "transsexual" itself became "transgender." The condition of *gender* dysphoria became the north star of the movement, providing a clinical, science-based diagnosis to validate their claims (note: although debate remains, many [most?] trans folk have abandoned the idea that you need to have gender dysphoria at all now). Now with the backing of both sociologists and psychologists, to question trans folk on the subject of gender became rote bigotry.

3. Subtly redefining how everyone else experiences their own *gender.* What we used to call gender norms or gender roles now becomes "gender identity," and even though you've never thought of it along the lines that the trans folk are drawing, you must nevertheless comply, or risk "invalidating" the trans folk, and being labeled transphobic. You liked G.I. Joe action figures as a child? Of course, you're a boy! But your sister also liked G.I. Joes? Sorry, but she's not the tomboy you all thought she was, she was actually a boy too, and to refuse her (dangerous) medication was literal bigotry. She says she's a girl? Oh, the poor soul doesn't realize it yet, such is the sorry nature of internal transphobia. Make sure you tell her that every emotional problem she experiences during puberty is a direct result of her being "born in the wrong body," and when she's ready to accept that, send her to us.

We're currently in step 4 of this convoluted maze. The final turn will have trans folk telling us that gender does indeed equal sex---to deny such a reality is harmful, transphobic, and in some places legally actionable. Yes, gender does equal sex, so my penis is really a female penis, his vagina is a man's vagina, and homosexuality is inherently bigoted for refusing trans folk their human right to be in whomever's dating pool that they wish. You may be a gay man, but if you work on it you can overcome your limitations! You can educate yourself on my male vagina, and together we can have wonderful gay sex, which is to say penis-in-vagina sex! Is there any gay sex that's gayer than heterosexual sex? NO! trans folk say, And we'll get you fired for asking that question!

by Anonymousreply 324Yesterday at 8:21 PM

r324 you forgot to add 2 other critical foundations of trans ideology: 1. trans people are literally being murdered in the streets for no other reason than their trans-ness, which incites murderous violence by cis people, and 2. trans people will commit suicide if not encouraged and validated in their brave transitions, and to deny them this is tantamount to killing.

Also, to talk about detransitioners will not be tolerated.

by Anonymousreply 325Yesterday at 8:28 PM

Where are all of you getting the idea that liberal feminism has been redefined? (Is it something different in Europe because I know they use the words 'left' and 'liberal' differently) Googling 'liberal feminism' brings up nothing but the history of feminism from the first wave on. Liberal feminism has been around a lot longer than the idiots who fill up the third wave and the current SJW contingent. I'm not going to let them steal the history of liberal feminism for their own uses. Not only are they not liberal feminists, they are not even feminists. The TERF slur is them defining us as radical feminists, not us defining ourselves as such, so why would we claim that term to define ourselves. We are liberal feminists, whether our haters like it or not.

R325 I think in the last decade a total of 9 trans people were murdered in the UK, most by boyfriends or johns.

by Anonymousreply 328Yesterday at 8:58 PM

Not sure how much longer this thread can last on here but appreciate the discussion.

Women get murdered by their partners or men they’re intimate with, so it’s no surprise if that also happens to trans women. It of course means nothing about how trans people are accepted in broader society.

One time there was some excitement from the pro-trans crowd as it was thought a “cis” woman had pushed a trans woman under a train in London and murdered her. Sadly for those hoping for a mythical “TERF” violent crime, the killer turned out to be trans too.

The victim was a woman socially but a man when pursuing their career... no comment.

R318, they’ve been duped.

My late father was a medical doctor. Before he was sick, I asked what he thought about “sex changes” - in light of the fact that it’s impossible to change sex.

He passionately believed surgery to seem to “change sex” was the right thing to do — because suicide. He truly believed those operations saved lives.

(He never performed those surgeries. I do know that he was in the OR for one of those “shock treatment” things...back in the 1980s...& I don’t know how “shock treatment” holds up today.)

I have a friend who is a therapist. One day I thumbed through her “continuing education” catalogs. I wondered if she ever received one that coached her on working with transgenders but I never asked. She & I totally disagree about T ideology but she’s enlightened enough to continue our friendship despite our disagreement. But I would not be surprised that she is being trained in her professional career to validate T ideology.

I have other friends who are pretty much SJWs — but middle-aged. They get all kinds of “leftist” magazines which I’ve thumbed through on occasion. Those mags are FULL to the brim of pro-T propaganda. One mag I saw was from the Unitarian Universalist Church. Another may have been ACLU or planned parenthood. Those mags are also pro-porn & legalized prostition...& supportive of Islam but damning of Christianity (despite MLK & Jimmy Carter).

Propaganda is effective. Who knew.

What a cluster fuck.

R322, I’m heartened that LA rad fems are stepping up.

I blame the Wachowski brothers for delivering the “red pill” of T ideology. I fucking loved the original Matrix movie — it was a big hit so I’m not the only one. They’re success made them very influential.

Also...my pack used to watch the L Word back in the day. They had a storyline where a straight man identified as a lesbian...& of course all the characters in the show accepted & nurtured him. (Unlike the real-life lesbian who got bashed by “queers” outside the Grey Fox Pub a couple years ago.)

IMO, the Wachowskis & the L Word are why the Indigo Girls & NCLR chose to support Ts & boycott MichFest.

by Anonymousreply 33815 hours ago

R336 The L Word is now considered “problematic” for its treatment of trans characters. If you can believe it, the idea is that the male lesbian you mentioned (“Lisa”) was, some feel, treated as a joke and without sufficient respect — this is because a couple of characters do find him slightly ridiculous and don’t immediately fall over themselves to welcome him into the lesbian fold.

They also had an FtM character and his girlfriend, who eventually dumps him because he’s transitioning but she is gay and originally dated him as a butch and doesn’t want a boyfriend, is considered to be mean to him. That’s even though her point why she can’t date him affirms his “gender identity” and the gf (Jenny) is a c*nt to nearly every single character at some point such that the final season of the original series was built around a murder mystery where her character had seemingly been murdered by one of her friends and Lucy Lawless had to figure out which one did it.

Nothing is EVER good enough for these people. I am not sure how we get the genie back in the bottle now. The “change sex”, “trans women are women and trans men are men” propaganda is of course meaningless but effective. And laws behind it to change birth certificates are pure insanity. The certificate issued should be a “sex change” certificate. Still not true but not the rabbit hole insanity of rewriting history about the sex one was born (after all, when you change name without changing sex, you still have to disclose your former name in many situations and no-one goes back and says your parents really named you what you’ve now named yourself. You get a document that acknowledges from a certain point your name changed).

We are going to have to go through several more rounds of trans outrageousness before the general public wakes up. Sadly I think the religious right are going to be the ones who will get anywhere with pushing back on this rather than feminists. Bad news for the LG and B.

Imagine the outrage if a black person were forced to treat a white person as black, under penalty of law.

Yet in California and New York and other places, "misgendering" is a crime, with a possible jail term in CA, and in NYC up to a $250,000 fine.

And in the UK, one woman has been arrested and another, a journalist no less, threatened with arrest and a jail sentence of a few years, for "misgendering."

We need to compare "trans-gender" with "trans-racial" when making our argument because it points out the absurdity and the doublethink of the Transgender Lobby.

Race is much more of a social construct than biological sex: for instance, many mixed-race people can pass as one race or the other. Many (most?) African-Americans have European blood, even if appearing "Black." If you examined their DNA you would find it.

But no transgender "woman" (leaving aside intersex people, who are a whole other issue ) lacks a Y chromosome.

We need to fight back and call their bullshit out everywhere we see it, we need to call our lawmakers and companies that support this rot and make our voices heard, because the rights we, gays and women, have fought for for millennia will be gone if we don't.

R341 I have my suspicions that is correct. Aghdam even referred to herself as trans in one of her videos at one point, albeit she didn’t do so consistently. But her transition records would likely be in Iran and difficult to get hold of, so they can deny her, and in fact even use her as evidence of cis women’s violence and “transphobic assumptions.”
