For those DLers that are out of touch or confused, Ellen Page is a famous lesbian actor best known for starring in the film 'Juno' as the title character and more recently as Vanya in Netflix's 'The Umbrella Academy'.

She was a lesbian icon of sorts, one of the few in Hollywood. Now I guess she's, sorry, HE'S a trans icon... or something.

by Anonymousreply 37December 1, 2020 4:47 PM

I've said a version of this on other threads, but ...

"they/them" pronouns have become so passé. They've (ha) lost their edge. They're everywhere.

Here is what fascinates me the most: I have watched several women adopt "they/them" in the past couple of years in and outside of my academic dept (humanities, naturally). What almost all share is an eschewing of stereotypically "feminine" traits/qualities, long before they adopted "they/them". Ten years ago -- or even five years ago -- most would have identified as butch lesbians and called it a day.

I think that's why the ethos of the current trans moment irritates me. (I think the individuals themselves are just swept up in the trend.) It basically says ... there is one way to be a woman, and if I don't fit neatly into that box, I am some other indeterminate "they/them" gender. Instead of saying, "There are many ways to be a woman."

Part of the movement really is sexist, but saying that is verboten, as JK Rowling will tell you ...

Page was never much of an actor, so this doesn't have much of an impact for me.

She (ie, Ellen) had a kind of raw charm in JUNO, but that (overrated) little film included a strong ensemble overall and one of Diablo Cody's best scripts. She was dreadful in the last project I saw, the completely unnecessary reboot of TALES OF THE CITY. That was a disappointment in every way, but she was one of the weakest links in it. I haven't seen many of her/his/their other projects.

So I wish him/them the best of luck. But I won't miss Ellen onscreen.

One of my 15-year-old’s friends just had top surgery to remove her (now him, I guess) breasts. We live in a very liberal suburb and it seems like half the kids are transitioning. It’s hard not to think it’s a fad, which would be fine except for the hormones/surgery.

As a parent there’s no way in hell I’d allow hormones or surgery until my kid was an adult and could make a more informed choice. They can dress however they want and change their pronouns. But I think it’s seriously nuts to let kids take physical steps to trans until they’re adults.

I think a lot of people who transitioned before adulthood. will live to regret it.

People love to complain about "masc-for-masc" culture in the gay community and demonize masculine gay men as a byproduct of "toxic masculinity" but then turn around and try to convince femme gays that they're women trapped in men's bodies. I don't get it. They bitch about the lack of femme gays or the rejection of femme gays in the gay community but then try to turn every femme gay into a trans woman.

[quote]I remember when Chaz was transitioning. With the hormones Chaz was changing and not just physically. It put a lot of strain on the relationship. They tried to work it out, but eventually the girlfriend left. I would think there would be a lot of therapy for both people.

Someone I used to work talked with me about a couple they had met while waiting in line at the DMV, two women and one was beginning therapy to transition to male. Every so often I'd meet up with my friend and I'd ask how that couple was doing and eventually the trans partner started taking T and made their full transition. What was interesting was how much the trans partner changed from when they were female. Not just physically but he turned into a "typical" asshole guy, as if he'd never been a woman and never experienced anything a woman has to go through.

I do think some people so reject not their body but the place they hold by virtue of the privilege or lack of privilege their birth sex gives them they demand to live as the opposite sex.

R162, you are an idiot. I didn't say it was common. It is, however, akin to female rape or incest victims who try to make themselves unattractive and undesirable to those who have victimized them. You will find those victims, for instance, deliberately gaining weight thinking that will make them undesirable. Belief that transing into a man is the ultimate turn-off to their abuser or potential future abusers will protect them from further abuse may be psychologically unhealthy be it has a certain naive logic to it. Or it would have a logic to it if they understood their abusers better. Men who abuse do not care what you call yourself and usually don't care what you look like. You are still a female to them.

There, was that such a stretch for you to understand? Not all rape victims are psychologically healthy to begin with and they are often targeted as easy prey.

As a gay man, I have never once considered the idea of becoming a woman. The thought of all that surgery, hormone treatments and having my penis shaped into a vagina is stuff of nightmares. That said, anyone who goes into that transition eyes open aware of all the hardships they will face must legitimately feel and know their insides don't match the outside and that must be a terrible feeling. Which leads me to believe th le need for transitioning is legitimate and very real thing. I don't understand why so many doubt the experiences of trans people. Who would go through all that just for attention or because they are crazy? The naysayers are the crazy ones. All that said, I do feel trans rights and gay rights are two very separate paths/struggles and shouldn't be lumped together. Sexual orientation and gender expression are in no way related in my mind and lumping us together leads to misconception of both groups. Namely that all gays and lesbians want to be the opposite genders or that trans people are just confused and mentally Ill gays and lesbians. I think we'd avoid a lot of conflict by making a clear separation of the two. Just my thoughts!

I have never had a sufficient answer as to why people aren't allowed to questions the trans trend at all, but you wouldn't tolerate the other things I mentioned the way being trans is.

By tolerate it, I mean supporting paying for medical transitions, allowing it for minors, and never even being allowed to criticize this movement.

People like the lizard man and barbie doll feel they were "supposed" to be that way too you know. There's race imitators that absolutely felt they should be black or whatever race, but you think it's possible to "feel" like you're a sex you are not?

Gay men and lesbians have same sex attraction, there's nothing more to it. Trans children however are allowed to mutilate their own bodies. Don't get me started on trans women infringing on women's rights. Gay people do not hurt anyone, not themselves and certainly noy others by being gay. They do not infringe on other people's rights either, unlike trans people. Please don't give me that bs about how trans people amd gay people are the same. They're not.

You can't assume every parent who supports their trans child is happy they aren't gay. There is a much bigger stigma for trans people than their are gays. Give me a break. If a parent is homophobic they aren't going to suddenly jump for joy at having a trans child .

253 you need to do more research before supporting that minors know what they want. You honestly call it a choice when this shit can start when someone is an infant? Affirming that a child was "born wrong" since they are a baby, is a sure way to take away a choice.

There's lifelong side effects to the medications and surgeries. Look up Hazz Jennings before believing it was a "choice". Notice his mommy shopped around at reality tv shows before she decided her boy was really girl. Notice how she claims he was trans since he was an infant. Look up how puberty blockers gave him a micro penis, causing problems when they went to construct a fake vag. He's been in multiple surgeries now because it went so poorly.

Adults are free to get botched surgeries all they want.

I live in the Deep South and there are no teenaged butch lesbians around here. They’ve all transitioned to being trans men and people are 100% nicer to them now that they’re conforming to traditional gender roles. Watched it happen with my own stepdaughter — she came out as a lesbian and almost all the kids in her school stop talking to her. After she announced she was trans and got her new name and the new wardrobe everyone started making eye contact with her again, smiling, making chitchat. It’s a big deal to be shunned like that I can understand why gay teenagers transition.

Susie Green suspected her youngest son Jack was gay from early childhood. She transitioned her son, subjecting him to GRS at age 16 in Thailand as the NHS refuses to allow GRS for anyone younger than 18; the Thai government was so appalled at this woman castrating her teenage son they put similar age restrictions in place.

Jazz Jenning’s mother claims her son who enjoyed dressing up as a Disney Princess was trans from age 3. Jazz’s experimental GRS surgery at age 17 was botched; like Jack Green his puberty had been halted and he was left with a micro penis, unsuitable for GRS. He has had to undergo revision surgery three times so far to correct the numerous complications including the remaining erectile tissue blocking his urethra, causing him to splatter urine upwards.

I know many self-proclaimed trans (FtM) who remain biologically female even after taking testosterone and growing facial hair. They’re mainly comfortable not doing anything more, so no genital mutilation surgery e.g. no chopping off their tits and grafting a fake penis. So the so-called trans would be walking around with huge tits and mustache. I met them when I helped run a support group for a center that helps people function as productive members of society who happen to have mental illness. Something about Page gives off vibes that she’s likely to be someone who’ll present as not fully female or male like the trans in my group.

[quote] They’re fighting to keep rapists out of women’s prisons. Google Karen White, a transgender “woman” who sexually assaulted two inmates while on remind in a women’s prison. (And yes, “cis” women can commit sexual assault as well, but let’s be realistic — most sexual violence is committed by people with penises against people with vaginas. MRAs will insist otherwise, but come on.) The reality is that the readers of Jezebel — mostly middle-class white women — are statistically unlikely to end up in prison, or in a refuge, or in a homeless shelter. Liberal feminists are sacrificing vulnerable women at the altar of wokeness.

[quote] Women’s Place are also fighting against the likes of Jessica Yaniv, who has sued women for refusing to wax “her” testicles. Strangely, Jezebel never covered this story, even though it made international news. Yaniv also proposed and was an advocate for the “all-bodies swim” at a Langley township public pool. The event was to be for ages 12 and up, clothing above the waist optional, and parents and caretakers would be prohibited. Yaniv has also been been recorded making sexual comments to a 14-year-old girl.

[quote] And if the moderators are going to delete this comment - fine. But ask yourself WHY you’re deleting it. Is it because you’d rather pretend trans “women” like Karen White and Jessica Yaniv don’t exist?

Sadly, it'll be deleted soon. Jezehell can't handle the truth.

On a left-wing subreddit I post on, someone has started a thread about how outrageous it is that transphobes are refusing to respect Elliot's pronouns. And to my surprise, most of the replies are pretty fucking TERFy. Comments about how someone with a vagina isn't really a man (can't believe this is a controversial statement nowadays - Jesus Christ), comments pointing out that gender identity sounds an awful lot like old-fashioned gender stereotyping, etc. This is the sort of stuff DLers have been saying for years now, and it's increasingly being brought to the general public's attention.

One of my cousins came out a couple of months ago as "non-binary". She's 15 years old and selected a gender neutral name and wants to be referred to as they/them, rather than she/her. I'm not bothered by such things and have the attitude of "okay, just keep me updated if you've decided differently". I'm really surprised at how well my aunt and uncle have taken it. They are being brave and supportive, but I know they are confused, frightened, and hurt. But, they'll accept whatever my cousin is or becomes. My uncle did ask me recently, "Do you think she's going to cut anything off or get an artificial dick?" I had to stifle a laugh. (I'm laughing now.) I told him it could happen sometime in the future, but IMO it's unlikely it will happen at all. He seemed relieved and I really don't think my cousin will have any gender related surgery.

R30 As far as talent goes the Fox X-MEN movies were basically stabled with closet gay & bi actors, or old queeny British thesps highly unlikely to assault a young woman. Could her attacker really be Bryan Singer? Ian McKellen? Patrick Stewart? Brian Cox? Hugh Jackman? James Marsden? Alan Cumming? Kelsey Grammer? Ben Hardy? Shawn Ashmore? Aaron Stanford? Yeah, I don't think so in any of those cases.

In terms of big name personnel, Brett Ratner is the only obvious candidate (and he is known to be a perv). If this rumour does hold any weight at all, I'd assume it was either him, or an anonymous studio Exec, background ensemble cast member, or someone on the crew. Given that she was an up-and-coming 'name' at the time playing an important secondary character, it's difficult to imagine a nobody runner raping her. But then jumped-up males in the film industry are always on their bullshit, and by all accounts Singer wasn't keeping an eye on shit.

[quote]Does this mean Colossus is gay? Does that mean Jason Bateman and Michael Cera played closeted gay men in "Juno?"

There were already people on Twitter saying that "Inception" had a gay kiss since Elliott and Joseph Gordon Levitt kissed in the film.

According to Variety, "insiders" have said that they're not changing the character of Vanya in "The Umbrella Academy" as Vanya is a cisgender woman But apparently some people want the role recast.

However, some commentators suggested that the role of Vanya Hargreeves should be recast. The character’s name trended on Twitter below #Elliot.

GLAAD, the LGBTQ advocacy group, pushed back at the notion that Vanya should be recast with a cisgender female actor.

“Trans actors can and do play both trans and cisgender characters. I’m sure Elliot will continue to be brilliant in Umbrella Academy and many different types of roles in the future,” Nick Adams, director of transgender media at GLAAD, told Variety.

Ok, to preface what I'm about to say, I think this whole dog-and-pony show is just that - and a harmful one designed to marginalise, minimise, and hurt us. I don't agree with what Page is doing, and I find her speech and actions foolish, deceptive pedagogy that will mislead young girls. If she really is gay (or 'queer', whatever) and she's going to keep calling herself that, then she's a hypocrite and a sellout.

With that said...

Interesting that when it comes to this extreme and it happens to some famous cute starlet, then people frown and tsk and wonder 'won't someone please think of the women'? The concern really isn't there on the everyday for normal women, especially not around these parts where all that's said is disparagement (often violent or reductive) and mockery.

And it's totally condescending and obfuscating to push all the responsibility for females being this fucked up onto females. Misogyny is a through-line of our entire society and has been since the dawn of time, twisting the psyche of women up in knots, but that couldn't possibly be the main issue, right? It's not like we're all interconnected and one insidious dynamic affects the whole matrix? No, that's just crazy talk. It's just that addled little girls happen to desperately need pills and therapy which conveniently prop up a medical-industrial complex run by men to keep control in their hands where it belongs.....-_-

I think they’re handling it fine. It’s so obvious your cousin needs attention and wants to feel special, which what this really all about. Your cousin is bombarded with pressure from social media and everything else that says “it’s wrong to be a girl”. Supporting these “pronouns” and “names” is fine. It’s harmless.

This was actually a very smart career move. Her career as an actress has faltered. She’s deeply invested in the woke cult that worships at the alter of the Trans Woman Of Color. She has to keep the backlash at bay for her privilege.

Now she’s a he. Suddenly a lot of doors open for her. That trans movie that got shut down after the transtapo chased after ScarJo with pitchforks gets started again because they finally have a performer who is trans and can kind of act. Every movie and show that wants to pander to and exploit the trans community and their followers has a top level performer at their disposal.

She’ll star in some Oscar bait-y movie that no one will see but will get an A+ from the New York Times because what else do you give it when there’s a gun at your head. She’ll win an Oscar and go on to star in a slew of barely released message movies that won’t recoup their budget and on to the next.

She pretty much just secured a long-term career on screen and complete protection from anything resembling criticism.

Sounds to me like she just gave herself a name change and now calls herself "trans" because it's fashionable and a means of getting attention. She is in no way shape or form a male. Will she go through the whole shmear, get her breasts cut off, have her female internal organs removed, get doses of testosterone, and get herself some kind of penis facsimile? I somehow doubt that. She'll probably just cut her hair short and always wear trousers and let it go at that.

Some of the people above keep conflating femme gays and butch lesbians, but the trans mania doesn't seem half as powerful among femme gays as among butch lesbians.

We can't ignore this: women are simply more suggestible than men. That's why mass hysteria is an almost entirely female phenomenon. And they're more attuned to cultural shifts than men, too. The bi chic, that young women have joined in droves, is now being succeeded by the trans chic, which affects the same demographics. That's why so many mildly butch women like Elle go trans, while few heavily flamnoyant men like the RuPaul drags follow suit. Women just feel more of a need to follow trends.

Many white men have to become successful because no one feels bad for them and they have to make their own luck.

This is going to be a pain for the Umbrella Academy to deal with. They just did a season in the 1960s and now the next one is supposed to be an alternate reality from the time when they were kids, so the 1990s maybe?

There is no way in hell they’re going to be able to cast her as a 5’ tall man unless she plays a dwarf. People are cast based on their looks, not based on whether they want to be cast. Her former character was first straight, then a lesbian, and now they would have to write a couple of episodes saying why she’s trans and showing something about that, unless they jumped forward a few years. It would be really hard to explain how an obvious trans person is walking around in the 1990s in most places. I lived in SF in the 1990s and there was a non-binary or trans person that worked in a shop near me. Nobody I knew back then had any idea of how to address this person, or whether they were trans, non-binary or just a butch lesbian. Matthew Shepard got murdered in 1998 for just being a run of the mill gay man. Trans is a modern identity.

A big part of the point of the show is traveling in time. You can’t just put a non-binary character in 1950 and think it’s going to work. Even a 1960s lesbian was a huge stretch, and it was obviously done to suit Page and out of character for the rest of the show. It’s not the Elliot Page Show.

The show plot was written a couple of years in advance based on the comic. The whole storyline would have to go out the window if they can’t visit certain places or times.

Meanwhile TERF was trending on Twitter and people were being attacked because they wondered about the fate of the show and whether Elliot would continue to play a female role. First trans sympathizers were saying he would, then somebody mentioned, but trans people hate it when they’re played by cis people, so then they started saying they would have to play the rewritten role as a man and they would just have to change the character to match their personal life. It’s called acting for a reason. You don’t actually have to murder people to play a murderer. Or become an astronaut to play one. But somehow this show has to rehaul itself every year to suit her personal situation.

The best thing for the show would be to put it on hiatus for a couple of years, and then they’ll lose the whole cast. The show has to do exactly as he wants because otherwise they’ll be accused of being bigots. The original character dressed as a sexy woman. They changed that for Ellen, then they made the character a butch lesbian for Ellen, and then it’s supposed to be a man for Elliot. An ensemble character has to be completely rewritten to suit her personal life. At this point it’s a total miscast. It’s not her show, it’s an ensemble. And they’ll be attacked unless they gut the whole show to benefit one actor. May as well cancel it.

This is official Dark Horse comics merchandise for Elliot’s character, The White Violin.

They can be trans if they want, but there’s no obligation for an entire show to have a completely miscast character to suit one actor. They can be themselves and not work on the Umbrella Academy.

[Quote]yet men are allegedly taken in and fooled by women all the time. Which is it?

Lol, why should I respond for a view that is not mine? Men are absolutely the manipulator sex, the ones who fool everyone, especially women, as is clear if you read about serial killers and con artists. Even female cons, like Anna Delvey, prey on women, and I assume that this is because women are, indeed, more manageable.

But I don't think this has anything to do with the subject at hand. Female suggestibility is proven better by their vulnerability to mass hysteria than by the fact that they're more likely to be fooled by sociopathic crimimals. False mental diagnoses- multiple personality disorder, for example - are also entirely the province of females. Ask yourself why, and try not to bring up the patriarchy, if you can.

I know it's uncomfortable for you to dwell on the psychology of your sex and how it might explain the trans mania among young girls. It's much more comfortable to point the finger at abstract nonentities, like The Patriarchy (TM), but anyone with a bare minimum of observational depth can see most girls who go trans, like Ellen here, are often not very big fans of men! They're vocal feminists who are as invested in taking down the "cispatriarchy" as any second wave radical feminist. You keep ignoring that because your dumb philosophy can never understand social causation without bringing up some male conspiracy to keep women down.

You also ignore, and I bet you want to keep ignoring, how much the trans mania shares with older youth trends - like the bi chic, which even you must admit has nothing to do with the patriarchy! In fact, you probably see the trend of girls saying they Kissed Another Girl as a feminist development; I see it as a predecessor to the trans trend, especially as both affect much of the same people, namely, young women and girls who are passionate about feminism and social justice.

Young trans "men", like Ellen, are not the byproduct of the patriarchy - they're the result of online youth culture, which is heavily feminist and queer. You are never going to fight that trend effectively unless you acknowledge that fact.

I know this is off-topic, but I am so fucking sick of being told that the whole "cotton ceiling" thing never happens. You tell SJWs about it, and they insist that lesbians are lying or imagining it. Then you show them examples of trans "women" posting about it on social media, and they insist that those must be trolls. Then you show them examples of verified trans "women" talking about it, and they insist that these are only a few isolated instances and TERFs are using them to smear all trans "women" as rapists. And on and on and on. They just move the goalposts every time you prove them wrong. SJWs have painted themselves into a corner on this, because they don't want to admit that TERFs have a point about some trans "women" having an incel's attitude to female bodies, but they also can't deny how rapetastic and homophobic the cotton ceiling is. So they just keep putting their fingers in their ears and saying, "It doesn't happen, it's an alt-right TERF meme, it doesn't happen..."

Trans is so presumptuous. What makes anyone think they could possibly know what it's like to be the opposite sex? We can speculate, we can pretend, but in the end, it really isn't possible to BE the opposite sex from which you were born. It's all costuming and makeup and wardrobe. A façade in every sense of the word. And expecting others to look at the façade play make believe along with you is absurd and demeaning to those of us who can see the man or woman behind the curtain. It is not scientifically possible that you were born the opposite sex of what your brain is telling you you are.

And yes, Ellen's "coming out as trans" is harmful, to herself and to those who admire her. It erases a lesbian. I'm so sick of this trans shit. There's no such thing as "non binary" either. But then again, I'm old enough to remember when everyone was coming out and screaming not to "put labels on them." Christ, now it's not just a label, it's a fucking giant poster board being held up to your face every day and the people holding it are screaming, "LOOK AT HOW SPECIAL I AM."

If you have never experienced it how can you be so sure? Just because you haven't felt that way doesn't negate the experience of so many trans people in the world. People have been transitioning for almost a century if not more. I'd hardly consider that an attention seeking fad. Why would someone choose to be ridiculed and ostracised and possibly have their life endangered just for attention? Just as you didn't choose to be gay I'd venture to guess most trans didn't choose to feel as though their parts don't match their insides.

If it is accepted that a young man, when he starts puberty, can say he's gay and is attracted to other men. Why is it so impossible for a different pubescent child to feel his or her parts don't match the insides? While surgery is extreme at that age, I don't think hormone blockers should be out of the question. Ultimately that will make the transition process easier for them as adults and will lessen the need for FFS and other expensive treatments like electrolysis etc. If at 18 they still feel the same they should have every right to get any addition gender affirmation surgery they so choose. It's not about erasing anyone, it's about wanting your outsides to match your insides and the confidence that brings.

Maybe gay men and lesbians wouldn't hate trans people if they would stop trying to pretend like there is no difference between us and homophobic straight people. I think that is at its core the reason for the resistance to trans from the gay community. Trans people have taken the gays, an already massively oppressed community, and tried to pretend like not only are we not oppressed but in fact are the oppressors.

If trans people hadn't done that maybe gays wouldn't hate them. But no, they decided to regurgitate homophobic dogma and make us their enemies and oppressors in their narrative. So, they created their own enemy, and now they bitch about how we don't like them or accept them when they were hellbent on making us the villains from the get-go.

[Quote]I think not. There are ten transwomen for every one transman

When there is no trans trend, transgenderism is more common among men. Among the Native American tribes, the existence of male third spirits was found in 50%, that of female third spirits in something like 17%. That's because transgenderism has a rather neutral relationship with exclusive homosexuality, which has been more common all throughout history among men.

Among western teenagers it's the total opposite today - it's the opposite even to what it was in a recent past, in the 90s and early 2000s. It's much more common among girls. And transgenderism no longer has such an ironclad relationship with effeminate male homosexuality or with butch lesbianism. Many trans kids and young adults call themselves bisexual, some clearly like only the opposite sex, and the girls are often not even masculine apart from cropping their hair short (Ellen herself I don't find masculine).

The correlates of transgenderism are not today the same as they've been historically. A new factor has intruded in, and it can't the patriarchy, which is far from new. It's youth culture and the path it has taken since the turn of the century.

R460 Really? You think the reason gay men are hostile towards trans is that we want straight people to like us? You don't think it could be because of, say, I don't know, the fact that trans people have now decided that gay men did not fight for their own rights and that gay liberation was entirely the work of trans women? Or how about the idea that gay men aren't even oppressed anymore, but are in fact oppressors against trans people? OR, the idea that gays are perfectly accepted by straight society so the discussion of human rights should be steered away from them?

There are plenty of reasons for the hostility towards trans people from gays, but none of them have to do with conformity. Every single one of them has to do with the erasure of our history, our community, our representation, and our civil rights.

The reason I don't like transgender people is because of the historical imposture they committed in the debate over Stonewall, replacing all revolting gays with "trans women of color", and imposing this untruth on the rest of society - the media, politicians, etc.

Before that, I didn't even care about them much. I already had some knowledge of some facts that are embarrassing for them - for example, Richard Blanchard's research on autogynephilia. Autogynephilia is strange, but seems harmless and I never held against any trans. Before the Stonewall thing, I think I even liked trans people, because as far as I could see on Twitter, they seemed to share a lot of the same far-left policies as me. What changed my feelings was their attitude in this debate and the hostility towards gay men that continues today in their activism.

People keep saying that trans can't erase anyone because they're not strong enough for that. But they erased gay men from the Stonewall riots. This is not anyone's fantasy here - it is something that demonstrably happened. They may not even have much power on their own, but power in matters of society and culture is rarely something so easy to isolate and measure. People may be weak on their own but have powerful allies. Trans people had powerful allies in Stonewall war they waged against gay men. I see two such groups: a) young women (many of them, actresses or vloggers) who are not very smart, but love to embrace these small social media revolts; and b) gay journalists who don't understand gay history but want to be popular with a) crowd and understood that bashing gay men, erasing us from our history, putting "trans women of color" in our stead was needed to retain or acquire popularity as a gay man with these people.

Indeed, R519. And in fact in the grand old TERF capital that is the U.K., home of JK Rowling, and location of the case that today (yesterday, U.K. time) said you can’t hand out puberty blockers like sweeties to under 18s (now “trans kids” have no rights!! Etc), a grand total of zero... er, let’s count again... that’s, zero trans people have been recorded as having been murdered this year, and we are of course in December. This is a happy fact that it’s such a safe place to live if you’re trans; you can have a whole island full of TERFs debating all kinds of things and not much “literal violence” results. Who knew.

Even the stats for the US and Brazil (which always skew the global numbers) suggest that trans murders are a little lower than average versus population (as has been cited above), and very rarely hate crimes. Usually trans women are killed by their male partners (including clients killing sex workers), as most cis women who are murdered are killed by their male partners, and not for “transphobia” but just because that’s what men sometimes do to women they are with.

There’s essentially, no epidemic of violence against trans people. That will not stop this falsehood being asserted over and over anytime soon, including by clueless idiots desperate to be relevant again for fifteen minutes like E. Page.

You can sort of imagine what it might be like to be a woman but you can never possibly know. I submit as evidence some transwomen being envious of having a menstrual cycle. If they truly thought they were women, they would know that ALL women hate their cycle and wish they didn't have to be burdened with 40 + years of their lives bleeding through clothing and sheets and cramps and having to wake up every 2 hours in the night on your heavy flow days to change your tampon.

R527, apparently it was a lie. And her coming out today has just set lesbians back about 20 years in the progress we've made. How many parents of lesbians told them, "It's just a phase. You will grow out of it" etc. And now this idiot completely changes her story and says she's a dickless man and now, parents around the country are looking at their gay daughters thinking they just might be men and wouldn't that be better than having a carpet licker for a daughter? And now that she's a man in a "straight" relationship, she's not one of us anymore. So she doesn't get to claim to be LGB ever again. She's essentially saying she's straight.

Also, I would have SOME respect for Trans folk if they dropped the term TERF and stopped expecting lesbians to suck their cocks and then yelling into the wind about how we are somehow not supporting them. They label anyone who tells the truth about basic biology as a TERF and leave chaos in their wake. JK Rowling simply agreed that only women menstruate and now look at how she's been attacked. Their schtick is old and people are waking up to it. Women are the ones having to point out that the Emperors have no clothes...or in this case a vagina. How sad that American society is trying to be so fucking "woke" that we are essentially denying facts and science now.

I believe that everyone has the right to be happy in their lives in whichever way they need to pursue that to be happy. I'm not fully on the trans/non-binary bandwagon, but to each their own. with that said, I still have difficulties wrapping this around my head and fully understanding and appreciating it. And I'm a very liberal person.

My question is, why did Elliot close the down on Ellen, to take on a male persona, but then also claimed they are non-binary? This is the kind of silliness that makes me question the mental health of most of these people. The whole point in supposedly being "non-binary" is that the person doesn't subscribe to being female or male, however strange that is. But to disconnect oneself from their lesbian identity and decide to become "male" by taking on a male name, and dressing like a male, but wants to be referred to as he/they, and non-binary? This is unnecessarily fucking weird.

I think Elliot just made The Umbrella Academy have it's 3rd and final season. He'll be too distracting to the ongoing plot, and you know Netflix rolled their eyes, but are keeping him to save face and backlast from SJWs on SM.

r559 The difference is that all that happens when someone mistakenly thinks they might be gay is suck a dick or 2, or become a 'lesbian' in college. Thats all. Go trans and you change your body, in many cases, irreversibly. Dont act like they are comparable.

And also, most of the discussion is around children making this decision. Elliot is free to make his own choices as a fully formed adult. Do I think there are cultural/ social things which influence this decision that I dont agree with? Yes. But at the end of the day they can do whatever they feel to make themselves happy. However, pushing the narrative that a child is born in the wrong body or that they dont fit neatly into gender stereotypes makes them the opposite sex is regressive and damaging. Most of those children grow out of it, and most of those children then go on to be gay adults. Its LITTERALLY conversion therapy and I won't call it anything less. Im so sick of people like you acting as though people who have an issue with extreme gender ideology are 'punching' down, or have no empathy for people. Fuck you, I do.

[quote] so when a child goes to their parent and says, I'm gay at 16, do you think it would be acceptable for the parent to respond with "you don't know what you want, let's see how you feel at 21." People would call those parents homophobic and unsupportive. Yet when its trans children somehow they have less agency over their feelings and experiences? [R69] I really find that hard to believe.

Being gay is not a matter of ‘agency’. When you’re gay—and typically you know after puberty, if not sooner—that is not something you’re likely to grow out of. And it doesn’t require altering your body; you’re simply homosexual. Nothing further needs to be done.

But when you feel you may be trans and think it would be a good idea to alter your body, that’s when age and maturity come into play. The human brain is not mature at 16, it doesn’t fully mature until a person is about 26. (Even then, some of us remain juvenile nitwits for at least another decade.)

Again, enough with the gay/trans false equivalence.

Last night I was up past midnight, scrubbing my coverlet with cold water and soap in my dark cold bathroom (can’t remember the number of garments & bedclothes I’ve ruined in the past not getting to stains in time), while I tried to not cry or throw up from the pain stabbing through my abdomen. Then I crawled back into a stripped bed, feeling like utter shit, swollen and dizzy and laboured of breath, with the taste of my toothpaste blending horribly with iron tablets I had to take after dinner.

And I’m one of the lucky few with short (three-day) menstrual cycles that have manageable levels of localised pain. I don’t get the other symptoms that so many women get: migraines, blackouts and dead faints, asthma attacks, violent mood swings, uncontrollable cravings, diarrhoea, etc. I went to a single-sex school, so I have seen the gamut of horrors. My sister has to hop up on borderline-illegal levels of codeine for a week, every single month, so she can basically function and move from her bedroom floor.

The day comes when there’s a magic bullet with no side-effects to allow healthy fertile women a life without periods, there is no female alive who isn’t taking that deal. They call it the ‘Curse’ for a reason. Why anyone would long for this experience, I have no idea.

At best, it binds us all in a sisterhood of resilience, and makes us at once empathetic - it’s a rite of adolescence to take another confused crying girl to the bathroom - and dangerous - how many other animals do you know that bleed out pints of their own blood and experience dry runs of pregnancy pain a dozen times a year? But males who haven’t grown up with that sisterhood from age 12 can’t ever understand it or share in it, and menstruating females like Page who want to pretend they aren’t in that sisterhood can’t ever truly wash of their hands (or sheets) of it.

And that’s an interesting point - how is Ellen/Elliot explaining away her cycle? Is she subscribing to that ‘some men have periods’ horseshit?

Not to encourage deadnaming, but I noticed that most of the twatterers on the feed at R546 are fucking batshit upon closer inspection.

She’s either he (a man) or non-binary (neither man nor woman).........but definitely not a woman.

What all this stems from, is that fact that our society makes it traumatic and undesirable for women to age - especially ingenue actresses who get by on their childlike youthfulness and innocence.

Page didn’t want to lose her career (that did take some talent, work and sacrifice, let’s be clear) or her image, but knew that as a woman in her thirties and counting she would invariably be offered a dwindling pool of awful archetypical roles (at best aunt, spinster, Frau) then pushed to the margin of the business in short order - unless she found either a loophole to escape the pigeonhole of middle-aged women, or a way to level up like the character actresses of legend (Streep, Lange, Close, undsoweiter). She chose the first option.

That’s the sad thing about this. It’s a move made to save her creative life and to prevent doors closing on her, not to improve her personal life and open new doors. Maybe if the world didn’t deny women an existence for the crime of ageing, shit like this wouldn’t be happening so much.
