This trans Orwellianism is increasingly finding expression in the law itself. In Ireland last year, a trans woman won the right to have her sex changed to female on her actual birth certificate. [DS: fraud] This is alarming. The midwife who said ‘This is a boy’ when this trans woman was born was telling the truth, and that truth was recorded on a public document. No matter — truth and history are putty in the hands of the trans lobby. Just as Big Brother thinks it can force people to accept that 2 + 2 = 5, so trans activists want us to chant: ‘Bruce Jenner is a woman and has always been a woman, even when she was producing sperm, impregnating women, and winning gold medals in men’s sports.’ And the small matter of Bruce’s birth certificate, his proven paternity of children? Forget all that; shove it down the memory hole.
The Left is eating itself.
You can’t demand acceptance. These people are like children, stamping their feet and crying until they get what they want. Appeasement to whatever superficial demand takes their fancy. It’s a test. Don’t accept their linguistic frame. It’s transsexual or tranny for short.
Most lesbians refuse to date “transwomen” but pretend they accept the man is now a woman. Actions > words, ladies. Chromosomes over homophobes? I need a drink.
Read it. No. Really. Read it. I enjoyed reading it. There were feminists speaking and I agreed with them – because they were being logical.
…Abusive posts proliferated on Twitter and, especially, Tumblr. One read, “/kill/terfs 2K14.” Another suggested, “how about ‘slowly and horrendously murder terfs in saw-like torture machines and contraptions’ 2K14.” A young blogger holding a knife posted a selfie with the caption “Fetch me a terf.” Such threats have become so common that radical-feminist Web sites have taken to cataloguing them. “It’s aggrieved entitlement,” Lierre Keith told me. “They are so angry that we will not see them as women.”…
…As members see it, a person born with male privilege can no more shed it through surgery than a white person can claim an African-American identity simply by darkening his or her skin. …
Transracialists, transn—-ers and transethnics would disagree.
…In the book, Jeffreys calls detransitioners like Russell “survivors,” and cites them as evidence that transgenderism isn’t immutable and thus doesn’t warrant radical medical intervention. (She considers gender-reassignment surgery a form of mutilation.) “The phenomenon of regret undermines the idea that there exists a particular kind of person who is genuinely and essentially transgender and can be identified accurately by psychiatrists,” she writes. “It is radically destabilising to the transgender project.”…
Sex is biological. Genetic. Chromosomal. The brain is set, it even affects toys we play with. Change the brain if anything. Do not abuse children.
… Jeffreys is especially alarmed by doctors in Europe, Australia, and the United States who treat transgender children with puberty-delaying drugs, which prevent them from developing unwanted secondary sex characteristics and can result in sterilization….
We should have learnt from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Reimer ” a Canadian man born biologically male but raised female following medical advice and intervention after his penis was accidentally destroyed during a botched circumcision in infancy. …Reimer later went public with his story to help discourage similar medical practices. He later committed suicide after suffering years of severe depression, financial instability, and a troubled marriage.”
People are not interchangeable. Egalitarianism is a lie.
Excuse the privilege stuff, because the sexes are treated differently in society for good reasons, and it’s scarily lucid.
And she gets to the core. Why are there so many male transsexuals?
But, if that’s true, why would men demote themselves to womanhood? For reasons of sexual fetishism, Jeffreys says. She substantiates her argument with the highly controversial theories of Ray Blanchard, a retired professor of psychiatry at the University of Toronto, and the related work of J. Michael Bailey, a psychology professor at Northwestern University. Contrary to widespread belief, Blanchard says, the majority of trans women in the West start off not as effeminate gay men but as straight or bisexual men, and they are initially motivated by erotic compulsion rather than by any conceived female identity. “The core is, it’s really exciting for guys to imagine themselves with female breasts, or female breasts and a vulva,” he told me. To describe the syndrome, Blanchard coined the term “autogynephilia,” meaning sexual arousal at the thought of oneself as female.
Blanchard is far from a radical feminist. He believes that gender-reassignment surgery can relieve psychological suffering; he has even counselled people who undergo it. He also accepts the commonly held view that male brains differ from female brains in ways that affect behavior. Nevertheless, Jeffreys believes that the work of Blanchard and Bailey shows that when trans women ask to be accepted as women they’re seeking to have an erotic fixation indulged.
Yes it is a fetish. It’s always been a fetish. People who believe they need to have any non-sexual limb amputated still aren’t indulged. But when it’s sex, they cave. When it involves unnatural orgasms, it’s a fetish. Hormones don’t make for sex either, the brain is formed by hormones in childhood and in the womb, when according to feminists, they don’t exist as people.
Just because it is a temporary fix (which some regret because surgical complications mean the orgasms from the fetish can no longer occur as expected and/or they still commit suicide anyway, even with/out surgery) doesn’t make it the proper solution to a medical problem. Brain is broken? Fix brain. Dangerous fetish? Don’t indulge.
“All transsexuals rape women’s bodies by reducing the real female form to an artifact, appropriating this body for themselves,” Raymond wrote. “However, the transsexually constructed lesbian-feminist violates women’s sexuality and spirit.”
A man can’t be a lesbian.
If you have a Y chromosome, you will never be a lesbian.
By lying to actual lesbians to have sex with them? Yeah I count that as rape, since by definition, they wouldn’t consent to sex if they knew the true sex of the other person, that’s why they get off on “passing”, aka deception. As I do count it too when trans”women” lie to men. Also rape.
“If I were to say in a typical women’s-studies class today, ‘Female people are oppressed on the basis of reproduction,’ I would get called out,” Ivey says. Other students, she adds, would ask, “What about women who are male?”
Feminists pointing out the stupidity of other feminists.
In May, they voted unanimously to stop using the word “women” when talking about people who get pregnant, so as not to exclude trans men. “We recognize that people who identify as men can become pregnant and seek abortions,”
Yeah, feminism jumped the shark ages ago.
To transgender activists, Vogel’s stance is laden with offensive assumptions: that trans women are different in an essential way from other women, and that they’re dangerous.
Take an underage girl in a gender-neutral bathroom. Is the possibility of her being brutally raped by a serial rapist higher or lower than if she were able to use a woman-only bathroom?
“The trope of trans women” constituting “a threat to women’s spaces has been tossed around forever,”
Men have been known to try and break into women’s homeless shelters to seek out their battered girlfriends and drag them home. There are good, legal and protective reasons for exclusion. I wish there were men’s only ones too.
A few years ago, though, Vogel says, some protesters committed acts of vandalism—stealing electrical cables, cutting water pipes, keying cars in the parking lot, and spray-painting a six-foot penis, and the words “Real Women Have Dicks,” on the side of the main kitchen tent.
She said, “This moment where we’re losing the ability to say the word ‘woman’ or to acknowledge the fact that being born female has lived consequences and meaning is kind of intense to me.”
Censoring words…… who made that okay?
He missed out headmates. I believe deliberately in case it’s confused with real illness. Good call but he could’ve mentioned it.
Being transsexual is a bit like being gluten intolerant: for every real one, there are fifteen or twenty just trying it on for attention. Sorry if that sounds rude. We don’t mean to disparage those suffering from transgenderism; rather, to finger the epidemic of imitation identity disorders and theatrical attention-seeking currently infesting social networks such as Tumblr, making a mockery of genuine sufferers.
Greed, selfishness, too much spare time and access to the internet can have a curious effect on some people. And when you throw in the modern tendency toward whining entitlement and the perpetual broadcast of every thought, feeling and inclination, something truly weird emerges: people who demand to be regarded and treated as things they are self-evidently not, such as white girls advertising to the world that they are “mentally black” and tortured musicians who advertise their “true” Romany identity despite having no gypsy blood in their veins whatsoever…….
Pretty sure that section of tumblr does have a mental illness. Just not those.
It’s a product of self-hatred. These kids believe their ancestors were mass-murdering bigots.
It astounds me how many people seem to fail to understand the difference between a social convention and a scientific consensus. Just because you all believe it to be so, or want it to be so, does not make it anymore so. The science method doesn’t give a damn what society thinks is progressive, nice or liberal – science cares about peer review and objectivity, and ultimately, truth…..
Science v. Scientism #101
Otherkin are people who think they were born in the wrong body ….. and think they’re actually elves, dragons, fairies, demons, panthers, tigers etc. All kinds. Including more than one. They can’t be rejected by the SJWs because their ‘logic’ is the same as the ones based on sex.
Internet Aristocrat was going to do a video on Otherkin but the bitch never uploaded it before ragequitting on us. Sanctimonious shitlord, I miss him.
– that biology is wrong.
Dr. McHugh, who is the author of six books and at least 125 peer-reviewed medical articles, made his remarks in an article in the Wall Street Journal titled “Transgender Surgery Isn’t the Solution”, in which he explained that transgender surgery is not the solution for people who suffer a “disorder of ‘assumption’”—the notion that their maleness or femaleness is different than what nature assigned to them biologically.
In support of his opinion, he pointed to a recent study which showed that the suicide rate among “transgendered” people who had reassignment surgery is 20 times higher than the suicide rate among normal people.
Dr. McHugh also pointed out studies from Vanderbilt University and London’s Portman Clinic of children who had expressed transgender feelings but for whom, over time, 70–80 percent “spontaneously lost those feelings”—implying that a lot of this “transgenderism” was in fact twisted adults projecting these feelings onto children.
after puberty hormones kicked in and reminded them what they truly are, no coincidence
“This intensely felt sense of being transgendered constitutes a mental disorder in two respects. The first is that the idea of sex misalignment is simply mistaken—it does not correspond with physical reality. The second is that it can lead to grim psychological outcomes.”
And biological ones like HIV explosions in the demographic.
It is a disorder similar to a “dangerously thin” person suffering anorexia who looks in the mirror and thinks they are “overweight,” said Dr. McHugh.
This assumption, that one’s gender is only in the mind regardless of anatomical reality, has led some transgendered people to push for social acceptance and affirmation of their own subjective “personal truth,” said Dr. McHugh.
I cannot wait until the SJWs start defending otherkin.
He believes he is an elf, then he is an elf!
Dr. McHugh also reported that there are “misguided doctors” who, working with very young children who seem to imitate the opposite sex, will administer “puberty-delaying hormones to render later sex-change surgeries less onerous—even though the drugs stunt the children’s growth and risk causing sterility.”
Such action comes “close to child abuse,” said Dr. McHugh.
He misses out an important point.
Indulgence of fetish. There is always a sexually stimulating component to it. What better for a mentally ill narcissist than to become the object of their desire? Or suppress homosexuality by claiming it’s their body that is the ‘wrong’ sex, instead of their urges?
It opens a damaging precedent for indulging a temporary sexual desire with permanent surgery.
“Though this isn’t always the case, I suspect there’s something darker about most hedonistic imperators than the white light and fluffiness on the surface might initially communicate.
Within the next few decades, Pearce says, every cubic meter of the planet will be computationally accessible to surveillance, micromanagement, and control. On current trends, large nonhuman terrestrial vertebrates will be extinct outside our wildlife parks by mid-century. So the question arises: What principle(s) should govern our stewardship of the rest of the living world?
Skip past the semi-autistic language of a man who one day hopes to be a robot or whatever it is that transhumanists want. Now focus in on the most important word in the argument: control.We begin to hone in on the true philosophical underpinning of HI and essentially all philosophical arguments that think they can perfect creation.
It is, of course, neither coincidental nor trivial that HI pines for a “pan-species welfare state.”
Except anyone who raises animals successfully needs to knowing about culling and selective breeding.
Predatory animals evolved for good reasons, the r-types needed to be naturally culled or all resources would be destroyed.
I doubt the good times will last long enough and enough area be covered for total surveillance.
This is one of the curious things about leftist egalitarianism: it tends to eat everything in its path. The second you start believing that all men must be re-created equal, under penalty of law, the road to reasonable accommodations for people who think they’re elves or those who prefer to see multiple personality disorder as a lifestyle choice isn’t too long. And so we live in a world where grown men (or at least Ronan Farrow) get paid beaucoup bucks to go on television and bemoan the lack of ethnic diversity in cartoon smileys used by teenage girls for whom typing out whole words is too much of a bother.
No one tell the feminists.
Or they might turn into Creationists.
“Throughout evolution, living things have repeatedly developed physically distinct sexes, but how does this actually happen? A discovery in the multicellular green alga, Volvox carteri, has revealed the genetic origin of male and female sexes, showing how they evolved from a more primitive mating system in a single-celled relative.
A team of scientists led by James Umen, Ph.D., Associate Member, Enterprise Institute for Renewable Fuels at the Danforth Plant Science Center, identified the master regulatory gene for sex determination in Volvox and found that it has acquired new functions compared to a related gene in its close relative, the unicellular alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii, which does not have physically distinguishable (dimorphic) sexes. Their findings are publishing in the open access journal PLOS Biology on July 8, and may also provide a possible blueprint for how sexes in other multicellular organisms like plants and animals may have originated. “
Everything in biology proves feminism wrong.
Roll on the genetics studies.
this coverage in particular made me lol;
“There is nothing more natural than sexes. Throughout evolution, living things have repeatedly developed physically distinct genders but how this happens has been a puzzle.”
