A Feminist Guide to all things Trans


  • No one is born transgendered.
  • Transition is a medical invention of the 20th century created to "cure" homosexuality
  • Transgenderism can ONLY occur via medical intervention.
  • Hormones used for transition can and do change personality AND sexual attraction. 
  • ALL transition surgeries are UNNECESSARY.
  • ALL transition surgeries are barbaric, permanently mutilating once healthy body parts.
  • Havelock Ellis, Magnus Hirschfeld  and Richard von Krafft-Ebing first linked homosexuality with inversion, in the early 20th century.
  • Inverts were males and females who were perceived as being inverted, such as female inverts having a "masculine soul, heaving in the female bosom". In other words those who didnt subscribe to the Gender Straight Jacket.
  • It was during this time (1931) that Lili Elbe received and died from the first sex reassignment surgery. Elbe was most likely intersexed, as medical evidence at the time indicated. 
  • Harry Benjamin who was a friend of and highly influenced by Magnus Hirshfeld, was heavily interested in gay male drag shows where according to HB, "many of the customers appeared in the clothing of the other sex".
  • Harry Benjamin is the father of transsexualism/transgenderism.
  • Viewing psychiatry through a Gender Straight Jacketed lens, Benjamin ignorantly assumed transvestites and gay men to be one and the same. 
  • HB believed gay men to all be effeminate.
  •  Most of Benjamin's patients were female fetishizers he mistook for homosexuals.
  • Within the first decade of SRS, female fetishizers created an underground snail mail communication system whereby female fetishizers knew beforehand what to say to HB and later SRS doctors that would enable them to be approved for SRS.
  • The main criteria for early SRS (and today still) is homosexuality or behaviour considered to be homosexual.
  • The majority of transitions remain straight white males who have a twisted cock response to clothing labeled "girls" or "womens". Males known as Autogynephiles or as I call them, Female Fetishizers. Males who fetishize the patriarchal Male Gaze constructed IDEA "woman/femininity".
  • Female Fetishizers carry out transvestism to the Nth degree in search for greater and greater sexual highs.
  • The medical community didnt invest in sex changes until the Kinsey Reports of (1948) and (1953) which concluded at least 10% of the population was homosexual and 37% of males had had a homosexual experience.
  • In the early seventies pro consensual pedophilia doctor John Money (notorious for experimenting on the intersexed) coined the term Gender Identity/Gender Roles.  
  • Gender Identity/Gender Roles are socially constructed via patriarchy, NOT organically created in the womb.
  • Just as homosexuality was removed from the DSM in 1973, Gender Identity Disorder was slipped in.
  • The Trans Politic was created by straight white males-female fetishizers-using politics to further their pornographic urgers, not so dissimilar to NAMBLA's political pedophilia via the Gay and Lesbian platform. 
  • Transition DOES NOT and CANNOT EVER change a person's sex.
  • Transition is purely a cosmetic and legal "sex change".
  • Gay males who transition do so out of internalized homophobia, usually within a hyper masculine minority culture amid the larger white culture.
  • Since gay white male popularity and large media visibility, gay white male transitions have drastically decreased to near nonexistence. 
  • In quantity, lesbian transition was largely unheard of until the backlash against feminism rode its Trojan horse-Queer Theory-into academia and then the Lesbian community.
  • A huge phase of feminist backlash is hyper-femininity.
  •  Not until hyper-femininity began reaching new undreamed of heights did dykes begin transitioning in numbers. 
  • As hyper femininity began being hammered upon younger and younger women/girls, Trans Trending among lesbian youth took off.
  • Transitioning children has been rare due to the lack of legal medical grounds to do so.
  • Since the recent publication of the DSM5 which includes transitioning children, the trans kid phenomena has skyrocketed. 
  • Trans kids are considered children who do not sport the Gender Straight Jacket.
  • Trans kids if left alone will grow up in most cases to be healthy gay and lesbian adults.
  • Homophobic parents are transitioning their children rather than have a gay son or lesbian daughter.
  • Transitioning children IS an overt attempt to eradicate gays and lesbians in their youth.
  • Hormone blockers used to "treat" GI-gender in-congruence in children are dangerous and life threatening.
  • Transition is the ONLY treatment for modern MENTAL illness that barbarically removes or rearranges healthy body parts for its cure.
  • The GID/GI diagnoses requires the patient be suffering from dysphoria (severe uncomfortableness with the body or how the body is viewed by society).
  • Female fetishizers who make up most transitions NEVER suffer from dysphoria.
  • ALL females suffer from varying degrees of dysphoria.
  • Yet lesbians remain the prime females receiving transition as a cure for their dysphoria.
  • Children do not suffer from dysphoria, yet those suspected of being gay or lesbian are being labeled trans and transitioned.
  • Transition has NEVER cured anyone of their dysphoria.
  • Dysphoria relief from transition is temporary.
  • Dysphoria increases over time post transition.
  • Outside of transition, no therapy has been used to ease dysphoria or attempt to cure it.
  • Transition drugs have no serious long term studies and have caused cancer and other complications in trans persons.
  • Once the trans person passes as the opposite sex, there is a perpetual mental fear and stress of being found out.
  • All the troubles that lead the trans person to transition do not magically go away post transition, in fact many more new troubles arise.
  • Cis is an organic chemistry term trans persons use misogynistically to attack primarily feminist and separate themselves from non transitioners.
  • Because the trans identity is self created, i.e weak, trans persons cannot fathom critical analysis of any kind.
  • No one labeling themselves trans is a feminist.
  • The foundation for transition is misogyny, and misogyny is the foundation for homophobia.
  • Transphobia does not exist.
  • Trans persons attacked or murdered are done so because of homophobia and the foundation of homophobia-misogyny. 
  • Transition flourished because female fetishizers for decades have used the gay and lesbian political platform to advance their fetishes and inline with the leaders of the straight white homophobic medical community, hampered and out right destroyed gay and lesbian advancement and lives.
  • Transition never ends, high dosing of hormones must continue the life of the trans person.

**No one is born transgendered.

TRUE

**Transition is a medical invention of the 20th century created to "cure" homosexuality

THIS IS MOSTLY TRUE.

It could best be described as the eugenics of gender non-conforming children. Scientists have known for some time that many gender non-conforming children, if left alone, will eventually grow up to be gay or lesbian.

According to,

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18981931

“Most children with gender dysphoria will not remain gender dysphoric after puberty. Children with persistent GID are characterized by more extreme gender dysphoria in childhood than children with desisting gender dysphoria. With regard to sexual orientation, the most likely outcome of childhood GID is homosexuality or bisexuality.”

In countries like Iran, the government will pay for sex reassignment surgery, yet it still executes homosexuals.

***Not until hyper-femininity began reaching new undreamed of heights did dykes begin transitioning in numbers.

***Transitioning children IS an overt attempt to eradicate gays and lesbians in their youth.

IT IS AN OPEN SECRET, AND IT'S NOT LIKE PEOPLE DON'T KNOW IT'S GOING ON.

***Hormone blockers used to "treat" GI-gender in-congruence in children are dangerous and life threatening.

BESIDES THE HEALTH SIDE EFFECTS,
THERE ARE ETHICAL ISSUES INVOLVED. THESE CHILDREN DO NOT HAVE THE MENTAL CAPACITYT TO MAKE INFORMED DECISIONS. MOREOVER, FURTURE FERTILITY CAN BE COMPROMISED IF CROSS GENDER HORMONES ARE GIVEN RIGHT AFTER THE GnRH AGONISTS. THE STERILIZATION OF CHILDREN IS CONSIDERED A HUMAN RIGHTS ABUSE.

***Transition is the ONLY treatment for modern MENTAL illness that barbarically removes or rearranges healthy body parts for its cure.

IT'S TRUE, AND DEEPLY DISTURBING.

Then what am I? I'm not aware of having a sexuality, I consider myself trans, I'm biologically female and I will be going through physical transition because THERE IS NO OTHER CURE FOR TRNASSEXUALS LIKE MYSELF. I can't struggle anymore in my body. I want to be happy.

Lupron is one of the GnRH agonists that they give to children who don't fit neatly into sex based gender roles. From what I've read, this is an off label use and isn't even approved by the FDA for "gender dysphoric" children.

The possible sterilization of children is also hilarious. I've been laughing so hard that I fell off my chair. Rolling on the floor laughing...

With parental approval, some doctors and clinics will start cross gender hormones at age 16. Perhaps we need to ask some very sensitive, profound, and compelling questions. Do parents have the right to jeopardize the future fertility of their own children? The sterilization of children, even with parental approval, is often seen as a human rights abuse.

Treatment with puberty delaying drugs leads to sterilization if it is followed with the administration of cross sex hormones at 16 years, as the Brill and Pepper handbook on “transgender” children (2008), explains, “the choice to progress from GnRH inhibitors to estrogen without fully experiencing male puberty should be viewed as giving up one's fertility, and the family and child should be counseled accordingly” (Brill & Pepper, 2008, p. 216). For girls, sterilization is the outcome too, because “eggs do not mature until the body goes through puberty” (Brill & Pepper, 2008, p. 216). The issue of fertility, the handbook asserts, may bother parents more than the “teens”, because the latter may think shortterm and not be able to contemplate much more than getting transgendered in the present (Brill & Pepper, 2008, p. 220). The handbook speaks of other serious effects of the transgendering of children. It says that birth defects may occur in children born to “transmen taking testosterone prior to pregnancy” (Brill & Pepper, 2008, p. 219).

ALL females suffer from varying degrees of dysphoria.

This is true, and all we have to do is look at the fact that girls and women are more likely to be anorexic and bulimic (85 - 95 percent of anorexics are female)

http://www.womenshealth.gov/publications/our-publications/fact-sheet/anorexia-nervosa.html

If we look at the profits from the cosmetic and fashion industries, it sure seems as if all women have some degree of dysphoria surrounding their bodies.

Trans kids if left alone will grow up in most cases to be healthy gay and lesbian adults.

Note how she says "in most cases" not all.

Gender non-conforming children, if left alone, will grow up in most cases to be healthy gay and lesbian adults. That is, unless they are surgically/chemically altered to become "transwomen" and "transmen".

“Most children with gender dysphoria will not remain gender dysphoric after puberty. Children with persistent GID are characterized by more extreme gender dysphoria in childhood than children with desisting gender dysphoria. With regard to sexual orientation, the most likely outcome of childhood GID is homosexuality or bisexuality.”

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18981931


This study provided information on the natural histories of 25 girls with gender identity disorder (GID). Standardized assessment data in childhood (mean age, 8.88 years; range, 3-12 years) and at follow-up (mean age, 23.24 years; range, 15-36 years) were used to evaluate gender identity and sexual orientation. At the assessment in childhood, 60% of the girls met the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders criteria for GID, and 40% were subthreshold for the diagnosis. At follow-up, 3 participants (12%) were judged to have GID or gender dysphoria. Regarding sexual orientation, 8 participants (32%) were classified as bisexual/homosexual in fantasy, and 6 (24%) were classified as bisexual/homosexual in behavior. The remaining participants were classified as either heterosexual or asexual. The rates of GID persistence and bisexual/homosexual sexual orientation were substantially higher than base rates in the general female population derived from epidemiological or survey studies. There was some evidence of a "dosage" effect, with girls who were more cross-sex typed in their childhood behavior more likely to be gender dysphoric at follow-up and more likely to have been classified as bisexual/homosexual in behavior (but not in fantasy).

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18981931

Homosexual adults tend to be more gender nonconforming than heterosexual adults in some of their behaviors, feelings, and interests. Retrospective studies have also shown large differences in childhood gender nonconformity, but these studies have been criticized for possible memory biases. The authors studied an indicator of childhood gender nonconformity not subject to such biases: childhood home videos. They recruited homosexual and heterosexual men and women (targets) with videos from their childhood and subsequently asked heterosexual and homosexual raters to judge the gender nonconformity of the targets from both the childhood videos and adult videos made for the study. Prehomosexual children were judged more gender nonconforming, on average, than preheterosexual children, and this pattern obtained for both men and women. This difference emerged early, carried into adulthood, and was consistent with self-report. In addition, targets who were more gender nonconforming tended to recall more childhood rejection.

Thank you so much for writing this. I'm a proud butch,(and always will be) and noticed that with the larger occurrence of FTM in my area over the last 10 years it's really changed communities in these strange ways.

People went from being proud of butch identities to pressuring them into taking T or telling me i'm already so masculine why don't i just go head and do it? Or when I was about to hook up with a hottie, i had to get asked stuff like, 'is there anywhere on your body you don't like to be touched or that you don't identify with? So annoying! I like to fuck, not get asked a clinical questionnaire.

It's like women have forgotten how to have "healthy" hot sex with those of us that have the audacity to feel just fucking fine in our own skin. I did a panel with 18 year olds that are transitioning right now and they all said their main reason for transitioning was not political or about identity, but because their friends were doing it and they caught the bug too and would feel uncomfortable as dykes around all their new FTM friends.

Looking like your oppressor is the same as people having internalized racism. Straightening of hair, blue contact lenses, skin lightening etc. It's the same bag. Chosen male privilege, is chosen male privilege-nothing more. And no I don't give money to FTM top surgery benefits. I know people who can't even get shit like proper inhalers. Why not have a benefit for them or their kids? Also FTM's always turn out to be really really ugly dykes who once couldn't get dates, so they transition, and find queer girls with internalized homophobia issues to date. And they all end up looking like mountain hobbits with gay men midget voices. Stupid fucks. Sheep just like the rest of the world.

Dirt forgot to mention gender identity laws that trample on the rights of girls and women. Indeed, they all but erase female as a distinct class.

THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

SECTION 1.

Section 221.5 of the Education Code is amended to read:

221.5.

(a) It is the policy of the state that elementary and secondary school classes and courses, including nonacademic and elective classes and courses, be conducted, without regard to the sex of the pupil enrolled in these classes and courses.
(b) A school district may not prohibit a pupil from enrolling in any class or course on the basis of the sex of the pupil, except a class subject to Chapter 5.6 (commencing with Section 51930) of Part 28 of Division 4 of Title 2.
(c) A school district may not require a pupil of one sex to enroll in a particular class or course, unless the same class or course is also required of a pupil of the opposite sex.
(d) A school counselor, teacher, instructor, administrator, or aide may not, on the basis of the sex of a pupil, offer vocational or school program guidance to a pupil of one sex that is different from that offered to a pupil of the opposite sex or, in counseling a pupil, differentiate career, vocational, or higher education opportunities on the basis of the sex of the pupil counseled. Any school personnel acting in a career counseling or course selection capacity to a pupil shall affirmatively explore with the pupil the possibility of careers, or courses leading to careers, that are nontraditional for that pupil’s sex. The parents or legal guardian of the pupil shall be notified in a general manner at least once in the manner prescribed by Section 48980, in advance of career counseling and course selection commencing with course selection for grade 7 so that they may participate in the counseling sessions and decisions.
(e) Participation in a particular physical education activity or sport, if required of pupils of one sex, shall be available to pupils of each sex.
(f) A pupil shall be permitted to participate in sex-segregated school programs and activities, including athletic teams and competitions, and use facilities consistent with his or her gender identity, irrespective of the gender listed on the pupil’s records.

Section 221.5 of the Education Code was historically designed to address sex based discrimination. From a historical and practical perspective, conflating sex with gender identity seems clumsy, is unworkable, and flies in the face of common sense. Intuitively, we sense that something is terribly amiss. Are we to believe that a female student taking a carpentry or automotive class is the same thing, or on par with a male using the girl’s locker room or shower? This is what the State of California would have its citizens believe. Under Section 221.5, a female student is discriminated against if she isn’t allowed to take a shop class, and under Section 221.5, a biological male student is being discriminated against if he can’t use the girl’s restroom, shower, or locker room. Under Section 221.5, a female student is discriminated against if she can’t take a drafting class, and under 221.5, a 6’10” 200lb. biological male is discriminated against if he can’t play on the girls’ basketball team. This only make sense if we believe that biological sex is irrelevant, and for all practical purposes, non-existent.

Trampling on the rights of females continued...

Please note that 221.5 (a) through (e) uses the word “sex” as in biological sex. Then, 221.5 (f) only refers to “gender” and “gender identity”.

Is the State of California stating that “gender identity” is the same thing as biological sex? If so, when did this occur?


This is rather confusing in that the State of California acknowledges that discrimination based on sex exists, or has existed. Then, with one sentence, the biological reality of sex, the entire history of women’s oppression, and thousands of years of systemic and widespread discrimination based on sex are completely erased from existence as if female as a class never existed. Gender identity is clearly given preference over sex. Indeed, for all practical purposes, gender identity overrides sex.

Perhaps the most odious form of sex discrimination is the process whereby the female sex is treated as an invisible non-person, lacking in meaningful substance or history. If “gender identity” is the exact same thing as biological sex, then sex is essentially rendered meaningless, irrelevant, devoid of significance, merit, history, or acknowledgement. What does it say to female students when their thoughts, feelings, opinions, and life experiences are erased from existence in such a caviler fashion? Who cares about female students who might feel extremely awkward, embarrassed, and fearful sharing a restroom or locker room with a fifteen or sixteen year old boy? Rational citizens of the state aren’t allowed to ask such questions.

For reasons unknown, the State of California fails to define the meaning of “facilities” as if the interpretation is left up to the individual, or individual school. Wouldn’t “facilities” include all facilities such as restrooms, locker rooms, and showers? If a student was born a biological male, and is listed as male on the pupil’s administrative record, he will be allowed to use the “facilities” if he identifies as being a “girl”. Is this correct? If the State of California sees no problem with a sixteen year old biological male using the same restroom, locker room, or shower as female students, parents should be made aware of the state’s decision.

You know, where I grew up women who didn't Barbie Doll it were just normal women who dressed for task, and survival. Yes, they frequently did the dress and heels thing for 'special' occasions, but by and large they dressed similar to men, which is to say, sensibly.

As in most societies, the majority of children will grow up heterosexual. Them's the facts, and stating the facts does not mean that some don't. And so what? What colour you wear, what you play with or do vocationally or for a career, does not make you gay or straight. I frankly don't know who these parents/teachers/legislators are who are freaking out over boys with dolls and cookbooks, and girls with trucks and rock climbing gear on their Xmas wish list.

Teach your girls trucks, mothers. They make $120 an hour driving the monsters in the oil fields. Of course, the oil cos had to be forced to hire these women, who are laughing their asses off on their three week layovers in the Bahamas and Bali, while the poor girls who tried hard to fit what society demanded are painting someone's fingernails in a salon, or staring at their PhD certificate in the department where some trans in a dress just got the tenured position.

You have certainly noticed that there are many extremely fucking hot transmen.Personally, I got alot of attention from women before and after transition. Sorry babe, the evidence does not bear out. We are getting sexual attention from hot women and hot men. I'm sorry that this makes you bitter and angry. Be careful about this-it is rotting you from the inside out. I see no reason why any kid would want to be anything like you, the way you are. Don't be responsible for the transition of young butches who are not trans but just scared to be bitter and jealous like you!! We don't want them making us look bad, regretting transition, and claiming to be victims of the patriarchal conspiracy when it was really just a lack of good butch role models!

As a point of order, hobbits live in the Shire, not the mountains, penis-breath.

Anon@12:09,
Just wondering if you can give us some examples of these "hot" transmen who have been on "t" for over 5 years - it seems like they all end up looking like charles asher, buck angel (they could be twins)or chaz bono after about a 2 year phase of looking like teenaged boys,(if they are lucky).
They still have their wide hips, small hands, etc. And how is such palpable insecurity attractive?

I agree that post your are commenting on was unnecessarily critical of certain young women looking ugly and then worse after transitioning. That sort of keeps flaming the fire.

However you do no better. Using the term: penis-breath? What is that about? There is this weird thing were males tend to denigrate males and females by saying: suck my dick. Or like you: Penis-breath. Forcing fellatio. It's a way to dominate and emasculate and feminize; which of course is a way to make the female sex null. That IS the misogyny I believe Dirt talks about.

Also your post talks all about people being "hot" and being attracted to you (before and after transitioning). Which again is objectifying (either one is "ugly" or "hot") WTF?

I think you are missing the point completely. Of course you want to defend your decision; most people do. However, if given time on these drugs and you lose your 'hotness' and have to rely on personality...that might be where the rubber hits the road for you. And you understand the truth about this whole trend. Maybe not. But you can't dismiss it outright because you don't know.

I think you are objectifying just as much as the person you criticized (if not more so); you are objectifying yourself. And you are making misogynistic statements; and the nastiness is something I have noticed about the trans kids.

Do you not get that the nastiness starts here on this blog? How do you expect us to react? Dirt has accused transpeople of generally being rapists, our partners of being child molesters. Honestly Patricia, I dont know how you expect a self-respecting person to counter that with love and kindness all the time. And
yes, I am handsome 10 years after transition. Because I started out good looking and I take care of myself. No
drugs or alcohol, no smoking, exercise everyday, lots of laughter and community. My personality and character are not a lot different than anyone else. The very fact that you are willing to see transpeople as a group with similarly shitty characteristics, while protesting anyone else doing that to women or dykes, lets us know everything we need to know about you. You are hopelessly biased, have no accountability, and therefore are ultimately useless.

Gender identity laws that trample on the rights of girls and women continued...

***Middle-aged white male by the name of Colleen Francis was allowed to expose his male genitalia to high school girls. This behavior usually gets a man either arrested, or kicked out of the women's locker room. Now, because of gender identity laws, it's legal. If they say they are a "woman", then it's fine to lounge around with the penis hanging out. In most states with gender identity laws, actual sex reassignment surgery isn't necessary. Francis definitely was a fully intact male when he used the women's locker room in Olympia, Washington. Gender identity laws" trump privacy rights of high school female students.

***Transgender registered sex offender, Paula Witherspoon, who spent time in prison for molesting teenage girls was offended because he was ticketed for using the women's restroom.

"A transgender woman who was ticketed for using the women’s restroom at a Dallas hospital says her status as a convicted sex offender should not play a role in the citation.

Paula Witherspoon told NBC 5's Ellen Goldberg on Tuesday that Parkland Hospital police cited her last week.

On Wednesday, Parkland Hospital released the police report, which states that Paul Witherspoon, 56, is a sex offender.

Witherspoon said on Wednesday that her criminal past is no secret.

"It happened over 22 years ago, and I'm human," she said. "I made a mistake."

According to the Texas Public Sex Offender Registry, Witherspoon was convicted in 1990 for sexual assault of a child and indecency with a child involving sexual contact. Both victims were teenage girls.

Gender identity laws that trample on the rights of girls and women continued...

***Middle-aged white male by the name of Colleen Francis was allowed to expose his male genitalia to high school girls. This behavior usually gets a man either arrested, or kicked out of the women's locker room. Now, because of gender identity laws, it's legal. If they say they are a "woman", then it's fine to lounge around with the penis hanging out. In most states with gender identity laws, actual sex reassignment surgery isn't necessary. Francis definitely was a fully intact male when he used the women's locker room in Olympia, Washington. Gender identity laws" trump privacy rights of high school female students.

A 40 year old white male (6,6" 230 lb.) who used to play on a men's team when he was younger says that he is a "woman" and now gets to play with 20 year old college women. Incidentally, the time that he played on a men's team doesn't count toward the total time that he is eligible to play.

"When the focus of the 12-minute pep talk pivots to this topic, the eyes of 10 18- to 20-year-old women – including one deaf player and another woman a few inches shy of 5-feet – focus on the one Mission College player who has yet to play this season. There near the door sits the oldest (50 years old), tallest (6-feet-6, 230 pounds) and most muscular person in the room: Gabrielle Ludwig."


Look at the photos and say it's fair....Mission College is not a high ranking women's team.

The point is, you don't have to play "Jesus" but you don't have to add in. Using the term: Penis-breath just strikes me as misogynistic. And yeah, calling people ugly dykes and that's why they 'transition' is ridiculous and also buys into misogyny. Because yeah, all women have to be pretty right? I agree.

But I do not agree that all nastiness starts here. I think that Dirt has a definite agenda, which is that she feels the trans trend (which I believe it is) is destroying the lesbian culture and taking women who are dykes and turning them into 'guys'. (I can't state it as well because I am only newly familiar). And she is angry, and again, to ME it makes sense. To you I guess not.

However I have noticed that if one challenges the trans* identity idea, all the swears and nastiness comes out. And this comes from young people. It's horrifying.

I don't think trans* people should group together as an "us" because there is no "us". I just don't see how trans* is like being homosexual or heterosexual. I think there are different reasons people go this way and that some may be actual trans* people but many definitely are not. To say "us" makes those who are not, think they are part of a group which is very diverse.

Dirt's points are not that trans* identified people are pedophiles; she talks about the guy Money as being a pedophile and he most certainly WAS. Unless I am missing something I don't see anything about trans* people being rapists here on this blog (I have not read ALL of it though).

And again, you say *us* and there is no *US* because the reasons people identify this way are so varied. And to call me useless because you think I am saying this pseudo group has shitty characteristics? Where did I say that? The only thing I notice is the nastiness that comes out when it is challenged. (like calling me useless)

Really, as an adult human being I have seen a lot and been around a lot. I rent out an apartment in my house and last year it was to two trans* identified people (one was an 8 year old child) and I liked all of that family. They seemed to like me. I just really question this whole trend thing going on with teens; it worries me as obviously it does Dirt and I get what she is saying how it incorporates misogyny and the hyper feminine.

It doesn't matter about sex and how hot the people are who are attracted to you (or to me) except to us personally maybe but it doesn't prove a darn thing. And it's a dumb way to support an argument. Just as it is talking about ugly dykes turning into ugly trans* guys. sorry for not calling that out.

The fundamental disagreement here is whether or not trans is real. Since I am trans, I know it is real in the same way lesbians know lesbianism is real while other people disagree. If you believed trans was real, you wouldnt expect us to put up with people abusing us verbally and physically and negating not only our identities but our right to live at all. Because these things happen, we are an "us" . Because of Dirt we are an "us". Believe me, i could blend in and disappear into the straight world if i wanted to. But certain brands hatred amongst the lesbians towards transpeople REALLY need to be challenged. It is blatantly untrue that transmen were ugly dykes who couldn't get dates. When people say things like that its like a warning flare that a person has internalized issues. In this case, i know that many people do find many transpeople attractive, so why the blatant lie? What does that prove? Only tgat the poster has a problem acknowledging reality. When you talk about trans destroying the lesbian community, I see you taking something for granted about the people in your community: that you know their gender identity, that their identity is static and can have no process of discovery. I know this not to be true. Many women leave the lesbian community for men. I'm sorry because its like the rug got pulled out from under your feet. But I also think that lesbians probably need to challenge their assumptions about who is community and who is safe and who is worthy. For their own sake. I mean, I can't even tell you how many unsavory and abusive butches I've known. Why isn't that behavior vilified? I'm sorry for using the term penis-breath. I've loved it ever since Drew Barrymore said it in E.T. I didn't mean "suck my cock", I meant that she should get her hobbit facts straight before using it in an insult.

I get what you are saying. And it's true that lesbian women who have identified as such have then gone on to be with men. I know at least one. Couldn't that also mean that trans people could go through a same phase and then go on to be their original sex? And if they went and used hormones and had surgery they might feel even worse?

I mean that is a real valid question. I am not about being against anyone; but I DO worry about what seems to be an increasing prevalence of trans* identifying people (kids). As someone who is studying population metrics I have to wonder IF this represents something that is not actually true in the overall population or is it an anomaly caused by ....what?

That doesn't mean in MY mind that trans* doesn't exist. But I hardly think it is well studied. I don't think it is so prevalent, and it seems that the way it came to be an identity was through some old time fixated psychiatrists or doctors (that story about Lili Elbe... reminded me of the story of Frankenstein..trying to implant ovaries and uterus etc).

Honestly, I think that the damage that teen promotion of various things they don't understand can be so harmful. I think there is credence to the idea of the "Gender Straight Jacket" where people are forced to be one or the other and if you don't fit one you must be the other.

By the way, I don't think abusive anyone is right. Abusive behavior should be called out; you are right. The internet allows for it in unprecedented numbers.
And I get what you mean about "penis-breath". I guess you can see why I misunderstood.

Did everyone get a chance to read this brilliant article entitled "Socialized Trans"?

"...Crucially, this socialization also consisted of a lot of positive reinforcement. That is, when people decided I was trans and treated me accordingly they were often at the same time trying to show respect or be friendly. I didn’t receive the same sort of treatment as a butch dyke. When people “accepted” me as a trans dude they also integrated me into their social scene. People listened to me when I talked about being trans, gave me an opportunity to hold forth on my life. There’s this dynamic that can arise between trans people and trans allies where trans people get support and attention from allies and allies gain political/socially progressive cred for being friendly and cool with someone society thinks is a freak. Such a relationship typically contains some degree of objectification of the trans person, ranging from being slightly tinted by it to being totally pervaded.

I don’t believe my experience of being socialized “trans” is totally unique. I think there are different degrees of it and it effects people differently. Some people just get annoyed when they’re presumed trans because they don’t see themselves that way. Other people can start to internalize it. This does not make the latter group weak, only human. People are very social creatures, very open to the influence of others. If you keep encountering people who make the same judgments about you over and over again, you may very well begin to think there’s some truth to them. Much of our sense of self is influenced and reinforced by other’s perceptions.

This “trans” socialization consists of several components. One is deciding that certain actions, appearances, practices etc are signs that a person is trans/male rather than a woman, female, and/or butch. This is based off the assumptions that any perceived “masculinity” is maleness and that stepping outside the female role and temperament makes one not a female. This belief that being/acting a certain way puts one outside “woman” or “female” can be an unconscious policing of the female category, a way to ensure that its boundaries are maintained. These judgments and assumptions are also linked to the belief that “man are like this, women are like that” and that these differences are fixed and innate and due to biology, not culture. Therefore if a female is “like a male” then they must be biologically male in some sense because biology is what makes someone “like a male” or “like a female”. There is constant propaganda that women and men are different and that these differences are rooted in the body and there’s not too much out there challenging these beliefs with the same force of those promoting them."

hTransitioning children IS an overt attempt to eradicate gays and lesbians in their youth.

We know this is going on, but people just go about their daily business ignoring what they choose not to see. I've always said that it's not a matter of whether or not "transitioning" is being used to erase gay and lesbian identity. We know it's happening. Rather, it's a matter of degree, or to what extent that it's occurring. Historically, we know that there have been periods in history in which sex reassignment has been used as a means of social control, specifically the erasing of gay and lesbian identity. It's still probably going on in Iran whereby the Iranian government will pay for sex reassignment surgery, but executes homosexuals. Why would one of the most oppressive countries on earth pay for sex reassignment surgery yet execute homosexuals?

"Which country has the highest sex change surgery?

Thailand is #1 followed by Iran.

Iran is #2 with most sex change operations funded by taxpayers money.

Ayatollah Khomeini approved the operations for "diagnosed transsexuals" 25 years ago and today the Iranian government pays up to 50% of the cost for those who have problems paying for it. Apparently they find this making sense although homosexuality is shunned because if you have the operation you are not technically attracted to your own sex and therefore is not gay. "

People often forget that throughout the history of most western societies there have been some rather ghoulish methods to cure gay men and lesbians.

The transgendering of children: Gender eugenic

Women's Studies International Forum

Volume 35, Issue 5, September–October 2012


"One significant connection between the heyday of eugenics and the transgendering of children today is that lesbians and gay men form a constituency that is targeted by both practices. The grim details of the control and punishment of lesbians and gay men by the scientists of sex throughout most of the twentieth century was laid out in the earliest, gay liberation-inspired, history of lesbians and gay men in the US, Jonathan Katz's Gay American History (1976). This history is important because the carrying out of sexual surgeries on lesbians and gay men is common to both the early period and to the transgenderism of the present. Katz writes that, “Lesbians and Gay men have long been subjected to a varied, often horrifying list of ‘cures’ at the hands of psychiatric-psychological professionals, treatments usually aimed at asexualization or heterosexual reorientation" (Katz, 1976, p. 197). These treatments, which went on well into the second half of the twentieth century, included surgeries such as castration, hysterectomy, and vasectomy. Women were subjected in the nineteenth century to surgical removal of the ovaries and of the clitoris, a treatment designed as a “cure” for various forms of what was called female “erotomania”, and included lesbianism. Lobotomy was performed as late as the 1950s. A range of drug therapies were also used such as the administration of hormones, LSD, sexual stimulants, and sexual depressants, alongside other treatments such as hypnosis and electric and chemical shock treatment, and aversion therapy (Katz, 1976, p.197). Katz comments that the homosexual victims of sexual surgeries were sometimes “acquiescent”, and sought out treatment, as those requesting to be transgendered do today. Indeed involuntariness is by no means a necessary element in eugenics practices generally. Katz explains that the case histories he examined in his research showed, “Numbers of these histories concern guilt-ridden, self-hating homosexuals, who have so internalized society's condemnation that they seek out cruel forms of treatment as punishment; they play what can only be termed a masochistic game, in which the doctor is assigned, and accepts, a truly sadistic (as well as remunerative) role” (Katz, 1976, p. 200). Katz does not include the transgendering of homosexual men and lesbians within these abusive medical treatments, but Bernice Hausman, in her feminist critique of transgenderism, does (Hausman, 1995). Hausman argues that the treatment of intersexuality and transsexuality in the mid twentieth century was motivated by a large extent by the desire to reduce the possibility of homosexuality and to create heterosexual citizens. She points out the first example of sex change surgery to be highlighted in the media in the US, that of Christine Jorgensen in 1951, concerned a man who described himself to his doctors as either homosexual or a woman, and was persuaded by them that he suffered from a condition that pervaded every cell of his body, that of being a woman (Hausman, 1995). The Jorgensen case led to a surge of interest in changing sex in those who, as Hausman puts it, were thus encouraged to see themselves as patients."

Below is an excellent article which fits neatly into a feminist guide to all things trans.

"The Same Sexual Threats, the Same Silence for Women

The Emperor’s New Penis"

"At the “Law and Disorder Conference” in Portland, OR, on May 11-12, two women were peacefully tabling, handing out literature, and selling books from our organization, Deep Green Resistance. A group of five queer activists came up to the table and one of the men began shouting at the women, using aggressive language and threatening gestures. He grabbed and defaced table materials. When one of the women went to protect the materials, he marked her arm and hand as well.

And in the time since, queer/trans activists have threatened DGR members with arson, rape, murder. They have created photoshopped pictures of us simulating bestiality. They have called for mass beheading of DGR members. We have done none of those things to anyone. Any member of DGR who did would be banned immediately. Yet queer/trans activists are accusing us of intolerance and hate."

But the basic truths of women’s lives are once more becoming unspeakable. Why? Because genderists are literally shouting feminists down to shut us up. They’ve declared “female” passé, probably because even they can see past the postmodern smoke and mirrors: they know they can never be biologically female. Instead, they’ve laid claim to “woman.” Their definition of woman lines up rather precisely with everything that the Princess Industrial Complex constrains girls into accepting and that sexual violations break women into being. The genderists claim that this is all natural, eternal, basic to the structure of the universe. A typical comment: “There is a distinct, substantive, immutable feminine gender, and it can not be transcended.” This is what systems of power always have to imprint on our psyches: not only is this state of affairs natural, resistance is futile. We beg to disagree. Some of us are living proof that feminine gender can be transcended—and the feminist movement is even larger proof that it can be fought"

Since this is a feminist guide to all things trans, perhaps people should see exactly what is being carried out on healthy female anatomy and reproductive systems.

How did elective mastectomies with the surgical trimming down of areolas and nipples come to be known simply as "top surgery"?

They want a "masculine" looking chest, but they have female anatomy. So, how do they go about getting the desired cosmetic appearance? There are different procedures, but I'll focus on Double Incision Mastectomy with areola and nipple grafting. Because male areolas and nipples are usually smaller than female nipples and areolas, in FTM "top surgery", the areolas and nipples are literally cut off, surgically whittled down to size, then sewn back on after the mastectomy. Loss of sensation is common, and every now and then a nipple graft doesn't take resulting in a loss of a nipple or two.

"Bottom Surgery"

"It is important to note that most phalloplasty procedures require multiple surgical visits as well as some revisions. The procedures can involve pain and discomfort, require significant recovery time, and often leave large areas of visible scarring. Because of the nature of using skin grafts, there is always a risk of tissue death and loss of part or all of the penis. Other potential complications include the extrusion of testicular or penile implants, the formation of a stricture (an abnormal narrowing; blockage) or fistula (an abnormal connection; leakage) in the newly constructed urethral passage, and infection. There may also be damage to the nerves of the donor area, resulting in numbness or loss of function. Erotic sensation may be changed or diminished. And the results may not be as aesthetically pleasing as one might like them to be. Also, one must consider the usual risks of any surgery, including bleeding, infection, problems from anesthesia, blood clots, or death (rare).

Phalloplasty procedures also tend to be very expensive (between $50,000 to $150,000) and are often not covered by insurance."

Risks/complications of metaidoioplasty and phalloplasty

Possible complications specific to metaidoioplasty without urethral
lengthening include:

• dissatisfaction with the length of the penis (shorter than expected)
• change in sensation: loss of sensation, persistent tenderness, or hypersensitivity
• temporary or permanent narrowing of the vaginal opening, making
penetration difficult
• change in urine spray, resulting in splashing of the labia and vaginal skin

Possible complications specific to urethral lengthening include:

• urethral fistula: opening between the urethra and the skin, leading to leakage of urine (very common: occurs in around 45% of
phalloplasties)
• partial or total death of the tissue used to create the new urethra
• narrowing or closure of the new urethra
• hair growth in the urethra (from hair-bearing tissue used as urethral lining)

Phalloplasty includes all the possible complications of urethral
lengthening as well as possible:

• partial or total death of the tissue used to create the new penis
• numbness or hypersensitivity of the skin of the penis
• decreased sexual sensation, possibly with decreased ability to have orgasm
• compromised sensation and/or function of the hand and wrist of the donor arm (approximately 5% of patients need a long period of
physiotherapy to recover fully)
• dissatisfaction with the size or shape of the penis
• excessive scarring in the donor sites (arm/thigh)

I find it interesting that you consider that responses to a post commenting on "all things trans" made by trans people to be trolling because they happen to disagree with your view. How exactly do opposing viewpoints impair your ability to have a conversation? Many conversations express differing views, otherwise it is merely a closed circuit of people with the same opinion patting each other on the back for how clever they all are.

As to your discomfort at things becoming "personal", while it may not be a personal matter to you,this post discusses (in a rather narrow, bigoted and grossly misinformed way) matters which are very personal to us. And if you are not trans and the issues here are not personal to you, then what real right do you have to judge the veracity of another's identity?

And really, to everyone who supports the sort of closed-minded diatribe expressed in this post: What are you so afraid of? How exactly does our existence threaten your identity?

Do you have some links supporting these claims:

"Transition has NEVER cured anyone of their dysphoria.

Dysphoria relief from transition is temporary.

Dysphoria increases over time post transition."

I'll say upfront that most of what I've seen so far supports the idea that we don't have long-term follow-up research on this question.

I think the question of whether or not transition cures dysphoria is central.

The drama of some comments is absurd. You can't call for Patricia to 'have a conversation' while also saying 'time to kill myself'. It's that kind of selfcentered hysterical response that, if anything, lends credence to the research that suggests some trans people actually suffer serious mental illness. Someone trying to warn lemmings from running off the cliff...is that wrong? Are the lemmings 'wired' to selfdestruction?

There is a very real and serious attack going on from many directions against feminism and replacing it with 'pseudo feminism', aka misogyny. You are living in a fantasy world if you think otherwise. Tompit women of all orientations and tastes against eachmother is an overall 'win' from their perspective. Being literally outnumbered by women once was no real 'threat' to the patriarchal system. NOW, with the advent of data dissemination so quickly and the trend for women, wothout necessarily consciously voting WITH each other, those who DO consciously vote with each other for laws that are meant to control women, see the writing on the wall and are seriously intent pn stopping and reverting our gains towards equality. HOW we are undermined or destroyed is of less interest than that we are. I could point you towards a very open thing called the MRM and their crazed leader, Paul Elam. He's a nutjob that gives voice to the backroom ideals of politically powerful and influential fat cats world wide. I think any issue we discuss would be better served if we kept these things in mind. The last thing on the world I read on this blog is 'hate'. Sure some of it's emphatic, but maybe that's because of a sense of urgency, not disdain. And I think we all know doing something just because we can, doesn't mean we should. I can shoot heroin, but I would hope I had a friend like this author around going,'Uh, I respect your right to do that, and understand there's a good feeling involved, but I am very worried you're not looking at the long term, bigger picture'. And if she said it loudly or emphatically, I wouldn't accuse her of 'hate' language or not 'respecting' me.

I'm still trying to slog my way thru all the trans stuff. One thing I just cant get my head around is when people explain their trans status as reflecting that their insides dont match their outsides or the person they see in the mirror is not the person they feel themselves to be.

So if gender is a social construct i.e. man made rather than innate, how can one expect to see a social construct staring back at them in the mirror? Am I missing something or does this defy logic?

Good post. Other people have mentioned the erosion of sex-based protections and cases where men exposing themselves in women's locker rooms was considered okay because of gender identity. There are plenty of other crimes too and you can look at the crime tag on gendertrender.


I would also add that all these idiot parents deciding that their toddler or elementary-school-aged child is transgender give off a Munchausen Syndrome By Proxy vibe. These parents are big on enforcing sex roles and often reprimand their kids for playing with the "wrong" toys. Then the kids say they want to be the opposite sex so that they can play with the toys they want, and the Munchausen Syndrome By Proxy parents go along with it when they learn about transgenderism. One story I read had a happy ending because a 4-year-old girl was now a "boy" who could play with Legos with "his" father. When I was that age 20 years ago, Legos were unisex.
