I just wish the Daily Mail would’ve gotten this right instead of using the trans-biased definition of ‘cisgender’. Sex is not “assigned at birth,” it’s observed. And it’s not “at birth”, it happens at like 16 weeks into the pregnancy.

Oh fuck off r50, I've read the actual article by this trans moron and it makes "Peter" sound even more ridiculous than the Daily Mail article did. R25 Linked it but it seems you don't actually read other people's posts.

[quote]Baldwin Cottage is the home of the Women and Trans Collective. The College website describes the dorm as “a close-knit community that provides women and transgendered persons with a safe space for discussion, communal living, and personal development.” Cisgender men are not allowed to live on the second and third floors, and many residents choose not to invite cisgender men to that space.

Right, so it's ok to be uncomfortable with people because of their gender and not want them in your space if you're trans, but if you're "cis" you must be condemned to being burnt at the stake if you say you don't feel safe in your own private space or a space reserved for your actual, real gender - not your imagined one - if people of the other gender enter it. Ok!

[quote]The next day, I waited apprehensively. The workers began installing in common spaces, and I could see immediately that they were all men. It was clear that the College had not made a special request that male workers not be allowed onto the upper floors of Baldwin. Predicting when they would reach my room was pure guesswork. I was trying to anticipate whether I would be in class when they arrived, or if I’d have to welcome strangers into my room only to be ejected to allow them space to work.

What the fuck does this person think they are if they don't identify as a man and therefore also consider themselves a man?

[quote]I couldn’t help but think that, [bold]though there were other dorms affected by the installation[/bold], Baldwin Cottage was one of the worst places for it to occur. There are myriad reasons to want to be housed in Baldwin Cottage, but many people — myself included — choose to live there for an added degree of privacy and a feeling of safety and protection. A significant portion of students choose to live in Baldwin because they are victims of sexual assault or abuse, have suffered past invasions of privacy, or have some other reason to fear cisgender men.

Considering teams of female radiator installers don’t exist the alternative is no radiator which means no heat this winter. I understand not wanting strangers in your home/dorm but to prefer being cold all winter to having a functioning radiator installed by a man is bonkers. Leave the door open or invite friends over so you aren’t alone if you’re that uncomfortable.

Unless all of the residents of this dorm are taking classes in plumbing, heating & cooling, electrical training, cable installation, etc. they are in for a surprise when they join the rest of us in the real world.

I had a plumber come yesterday to fix my kitchen sink. I presume that he was a cis male based on his mannerisms and presentation. Should I be upset? He seemed nice enough, and did a good job. I didn't feel unsafe, but should I have? He was professional, and did the job quickly and neatly, but now I am wondering if I have been violated.

Of course, I am assuming that he was a cis male, I didn't ask him. Does my assumption that he was cis make me a cis-ist, it never crossed my mind that he might not be? Does my after the fact questioning of my safety, despite that fact that nothing happened, mean that I have a bias against cis males? Is that bad, having a bias against someone based on their identity, or is it okay since cis males historically oppress everyone else?

I just want to add that my quotes are from the original source, not the Daily Mail (not that anyone cares)

[quote][bold]I understand, of course, that installations like this are routine[/bold]; the College needs to improve its facilities occasionally, and who am I to stand in the way of that? After all, I get a brand-spanking-new radiator, right in time for the cold weather. But why not finish the project during the four months of the summer semester, when the building was unoccupied? Why not alert us earlier to the intrusion? Why didn’t the College make a schedule detailing when the workers would be likely to arrive at each dorm and in each room? They should have taken measures to keep students comfortable and safe — especially those who have elected to live in a specifically designated safe space.

Why? Because life doesn't work that way. As inconvenient as it may be, money, materials and worker availability don't revolve around us. I can't imagine being this self absorbed.

[quote]Four or five construction workers stood outside, accompanied by someone who I could only assume — by his neat polo and clipboard — to be an emissary of the College.

OT but this sentence bugs me. 1) HVAC technicians and construction workers are two different things; 2) most contractors wear collared shirts or button down shirts these days and the foreman of a crew often carries a clip board.

Until then, take your meds and take a seat, Toots.

I think someone needs to check their privilege. Most of us don't have the option of electing to live in a specifically designated safe space. Most of us have to navigate a world that is sometimes hostile, not always safe, and that requires us to interact with people that don't share our views or values.

"Why not alert us earlier to the intrusion? Why didn’t the College make a schedule detailing when the workers would be likely to arrive at each dorm and in each room? They should have taken measures to keep students comfortable and safe"

Of course there's always the option of leaving your room for a few minutes, so you feel safe and the maintenance guy can do the job he was hired to do. Go to a common room for a few minutes, why don't you, or maybe go outside and enjoy the autumn for a few minutes?

Is this person a serious agoraphobe as well as trans?

Thank you, R102! Like I say, people are blind to the privileges they have, and some are so blind that they have the chutzpah to go around acting like they are somehow underprivileged when the opposite is true. A student at a posh private university complaining that a maintenance person is cis is like a rich kid complaining that his parents bought him the wrong color sports car.

Go talk to anyone who's poor or just getting by, ask them how many "safe spaces" they have access to, and the answer is none. Being able to live without being afraid of the people around you is an upper-income privilege, and these kids take it totally for granted.

Doesn't this person's use of the term cis in their own opinion piece invalidate the argument that trans men are men, and trans women are women.

As others have said, this sorta proves that XX and XY, no matter how one later identifies, have very different experiential baselines as they wade through the murky waters of life. And this difference needs to be respected. (ie when bio women get a little peeved when transwomen say "transwomen are women", let's not call that transphobic. Let's call it reality.).

No bio male, even femme gay ones, would ever consider the danger of a male blue collar worker in their space without any viable reason. (And simply being male is decidedly not a viable reason.)

Why? Because rape isn't something men fear on any sort of instinctual level. Men are not hardwired to worry about that at all. Because it almost never happens to men.

But women, very justifiably, do.

It bothers me that so many young people are trying to "become a wo/man", with no real understanding of how the sex they identify as lives or feels. And when "cis-men" or "cis-women" fail to align with what the transperson thinks their sex should be, they're attacked for being transphobic.

These people who don't want to be the sex they were born to be but who understand the sex they want to be ...should just become nonbinary. Sure, the whole nonbinary thing is a silly idea, but it does no harm to change your pronouns and dress weird, not like irreversible surgery and dangerous hormones.

by Anonymousreply 145October 21, 2021 2:01 AM

This college student proves beyond a doubt why trans women should never be allowed in women's bathrooms, women's prisons, women's changing rooms, or any space for women. Women have fear of men in women's spaces, even if the women happen to call themselves trans men. Even trans "men" fear men because trans men are not men just like trans women are not women. Trans men are women. That's why trans men fear men. That's why trans men don't want to go to men's prisons, play men's sports, or use the men's bathroom. Trans women are men hellbent on invading women's spaces and just fine with making women feel unsafe. Trans women are doing the opposite of trans men, who are not wanting to invade men's spaces because they know they can't escape biological facts that make women unsafe around men. Trans men are actually terrified of being around real men. This student has proven to the world how trans really think and the logic works against the trans movement in every way possible by exposing the truth.

This is a failure of the entire "gender counseling " profession. If the kid's goal was to have all the male privileges, including being accepted as a man by other men and losing the constant fear that some claim is the lot of womankind, then the transition has failed. If the goal was to just stop being a woman, going genderqueer or nonbinary would have accomplished as much, without the irreversible and expensive surgery or hormones.

This is why minors shouldn't be allowed to transition, nor should anyone who doesnt understand the limitations of the medical transition process.. Anyone who is unhappy or hates themselves needs counseling, and that counseling needs to focus on alternatives to transition, because the transition isn't going to make you confident, beloved, or happy.
