Ftm women want to be "men" so long as they're not Treated like Men








Selective Service is a subject I have seen brought up in more ftM communities than I care to count,
the cap is overwhelmingly the consensus of opinion opined. Women who want to "dress" the part of male without having to fully commit to the parts requiring profundity such as male duty, male responsibility, male legitimacy. Its all too reminiscent of the ftM women who choose to continue taking up space in lesbian domains. The have-their-cake-and-eat-it-to ideology that is so particular to trans behavior.

The draft more than any other gendered area is perhaps where trans theory breaks down and dissolves into nothingness. There hasn't been a trans movement or peep for that matter regarding this issue, even though THIS issue could licit FEDERAL recognition of TGism which would level all state TG "roadblocks". Mtf males no matter where they stand in their "transition" if between the ages of 18-26 must register for the draft, ftM women of draft age no matter where they are in their "transition" are exempt.

Understandably the government still views Mtf males as male and ftM women as women, but putatively the TG person tells their families, their friends, their co-workers and their shrinks they are definitively the sex they were not born, yet they refuse to tell their government? Oh they'll of course trivially change a mere letter on their legal ID's, but substantially? Not in a million years, or at least not since the medical establishment began trying to eradicate homosexuality through body modification (about 70 years).

This sends out a crystallized message that TG men and women are far more interested in the IDEA of man and woman than they are in actually BEING male or female.

Let me also add, I believe the draft is also the pivotal issue that women/feminist need to address. Because until women are willing to be potentially drafted just like the men, this country will NEVER see an ERA and really why should it?

  1. The draft more than any other gendered area is perhaps where trans theory breaks down and dissolves into nothingness.Most cissexual men don't want to register for the draft, it's no surprise that transsexual men don't want to either. Your point is invalid.

    Not in a million years, or at least not since the medical establishment began trying to eradicate homosexuality through body modification (about 70 years).If "body modification" is simply a means to eradicate homosexuality, how do you account for transsexuals who go from being straight as preop to gay/lesbian as postop? This too does not hold water.

  2. Clearly I was speaking regarding the ME's reasoning for the historical treatment of men they believed (most were not and are not now still) homosexual.
