I don't recollect how often I get these updates, but every so often I get an email with a list of my "flirts", this is a typical example of the "flirts": ALL MEN! I don't recall one flirt from a women/lesbian, not a one. However I've had hundreds from gay men.
If I didn't receive any flirts I could merely chalk it up to being seen as something uglier than Freddy Krueger and a sloth's offspring, BUT I'm clearly getting flirts, but from men only!
Being a Butch woman of course I deal with my share of invisibility on an ongoing basis. But I don't think its a coincidence that Butch women have/are growing more invisible as the "trans" movement become more VISIBLE.
There is a presumption from within and without the gay/lesbian community that if a lesbian is a Butch lesbian she will likely "transition" to a faux male caricature because there is inherently something "wrong" with her. Because she is a different kind of woman it is assumed she isn't a woman at all! Trans-propaganda only goes to further this notion which inauthenticates HER woman!
All flavours of Butches are being mistaken for males, future ftMs or ftMs in denial more and more often because trans-propagandist clutching their well worn copies of Butler's Gender Troubles underneath thier arms would have us believe there is only one way to "do" male and one way to "do" female. Butch woman not only prove these rigid constructs wrong, inaccurate and fallacious, we give truth to BEING and not the trans performative DOING!
It has become increasingly clear that the fight for Butch visibility MUST begin with the fight against the trans-propagandist reifying of strict gender norms!

See here's the thing with the TG disorder, in much the same as other disorders its sufferers replace their ID with the disorder. So then when something threatens that disorder (even in the form of help) it is viewed by the sufferer as a colossal attack on their identity(rather than the disorder).
A diseased ego still has the capacity for self preservation. No disorder=no self=no life=death.
Which is why once a TG/GID "diagnosis" is a attached the sufferer feels relief and for a short period of time and an artificial sense happiness. This occurs when the replacing of the self with disorder takes place. This artificial happiness and moments of high is why therapists are deceived into believing the current "treatment" for the TG disorder is "helping", because they (the therapists) witness an "improved" state of being in the sufferer.
What they (the therapists) don't see is what takes place when the TG sufferer leaves the office. Between every juncture of change the TG sufferer spirals downward into depression and feelings of suicide. Our personality may be forged at a few years of age but our ego, our consciousness is a growing mechanism whose pleasures and potential for pleasures is based on new experiences. When that ego/consciousness is replaced with the TG disorder instead of a growing/evolving consciousness, the TG disorder mimics its host (the ego) so in order to experience pleasure/future pleasures the disorder grows and along with that internal growth a pathological desire for an external seeable growth emerges. In the TG case that seeable growth consists of cosmetic mutilation in the form of drugs and "surgery".

Trans Camp, this is just the sort of thing the gay and lesbian movement needs to be associated with! The recruitment of young people into a trans disorder, surrounded by trans disordered adults!
It is a known fact young folks feeling ill at ease/confused/intimidated/pressured with sex roles/body image are in danger of developing some form of BDD which increases if influenced to do so. (think pro ana/trans sites)
Now imagine having a child between the ages of 8-15, (a difficult time in the best of times) exhibiting interests/gender play typical for the opposite sex according to historical/current patriarchal stipulations? Big deal right? So little Josie likes playing with trucks and wearing board shorts or little Buster enjoys playing the "mom" while playing house.
Enter "trans camp"! And the next thing you know the parents of josie/buster are sending them off to "trans camp" where they might find other kids they "fit in" with. Now if this was "gender neutral" camp fine and dandy, but it isnt. This is a camp that rather than challenge gender scripts will only reinforce them! The trans community's entire system is a reinforement of strict gender roles through role reversal. In the end one simply gets straightjacketed in a different role! And that straightjacket will be strapped, taught and tied at "trans camp"!
This particular camp will be ran by adults suffering from the trans disorder, including autogynephiles. Men obsessed with masturbating in womens undies to the point of SRS are not exactly men who should NOT be influencing impressionable children!!! Children who in all likelihood if given a bit of space and freedom would grow into healthy women and men. The only thing to grow from trans camps/groups/communities etc is more disorder! Disorder now being directed and aimed at our young and most vulnerable.
Mark my words, programs such as these will later come back to bite the gay and lesbian community in the ass. Because when reason and common sense are restored regarding TGism, the first to be blamed for the drugging and mutilations of tens of thousands isnt going to be the medical establishment, its going to be gays and lesbians! Because we will be the ones accused of "knowing better" due to propinquity!
I think and thank god I grew up in a family and time that gave me the latitude to grow from a small tomboy into an adult Butch woman.
