The Death of a Baby Butch



The pure IGNORANCE of this is INFUCKINGCREDIBLE! In all likelihood this little girl is nothing more than your basic baby Butch. But given the ignorant fucking clueless parents along with an equally ignorant fucking clueless "gender specialists" this little girl is never going get to know the Butch girl she is or the Butch woman she could become, instead she's being brainwashed into believing she's a boy rather than a Butch girl!

I never wore a dress after age two, I had every hot wheel known to boy growing up, my dad bought me my first mini bike when I was 4, my first BB gun age 5, all my friends were males, my sex was questioned since age 3 by strangers, I HATED having to use the girls bathroom in school from day one, all very typical Butch girl feelings/behavior. I shutter to think what this poor girl's life is going to be like, and the constant confusion between who she is, who she thinks she is and the who her parents/shrink are telling her she is.

This is the danger with mainstreaming the "trans" disorder, parents who see gender play/feelings that do not coincide with their hetero-patriarchal conditioned ideas (butch girls/queenie boys) are going to have their kids trannifying before they're out of fucking diapers! This will end the lives of Butch girls before they even begin! This is why the general public needs to be educated on this disorder. We who are in the trenches know it isnt Butch girls and queenie boys who mostly develop this disorder, but straight males, straight females and tweener dykes!



But until the public can be educated, until doctors begin a different course in REAL treatment, baby butches are going to become (like this girl here) the victim of a disorder placed upon her by a hetero patriarchal medical system! The Butch in her is going to murdered right out from underneath her before her very eyes!

Butch visibility, its literally become life or death for some. And Femmes? Or any dyke who dates Butches, dont think its merely our problem, it is YOUR problem too! You know too well how small the dating pool is within Femme/Butch spaces, now think about that in light of this! Without the future of Butch women, who exactly are the future Femmes going to be coupling with????? If you love Butch women, this is your fight too.


BUTCH VISIBILITY

ITS LIFE OR DEATH

TAKE A STAND

STOP THE HATE

STOP THE MISOGYNY

  1. This is so fucking tragic. Your addition of "how about changing society" is so true. I was a fairly androgynous child and had short hair and was always asked if I was a boy. It shat me then and it shits me now.

    So sadly true.

    I found your blog via Factcheckme's and I really love what you have to say. As a younger femme seeing all this t(y)rannyfication crap just enrages me. You're an inspiration Dirt. I've added you to my blog role, hope you don't mind.

  2. I hope more of you get your stories out there. I worry that this kid is just paying attention to her parents' gender expectations, and that she has internalized the idea that she has to be a boy to do the things she likes. I worry that she is not expressing her own feelings about who she is. It scares me.

    This is more male-oriented but:

  3. Dirt, I'm gonna have to write you as I can't really see the print in this, it's rather blurred when I click on it, even in blowing it up to a bigger size.

    I represent EVERY DAY, being Butch! So does my partner. We represent EVERYWHERE WE GO! And yes, Butches that want to STAY female and be acknowledged as female are harder and harder to find. Many femmes do complain to us that even though we're Butch on Butch, we are old school Butch, fully Female, vulnerable, proud, ourselves, talkative, friendly, approachable and flirtaceous, and of course we also like to flirt with said femmes as well.....they are having a harder and harder time finding a Butch who is PROUD to be fully Female!

    Damn, I gave up dolls at age 7, dresses at age 10, never wanted to marry(a man) or have babies I told my family at age 12. How did I know these things? I was a hardcore tomboy! Maybe not at 1 and a half, I still wore the girl clothes till age 7 or 8, wanting more and more androgynous clothes as time went on. I dont' think I had a problem with the girl clothes until I REALIZED that I was being treated unequally. Once I figured that out, I became more and more hardcore tomboy, so I'd get the boy privileges..something us Butches chase but NEVER recieve!
    That's why I think most ultimately decide to transition....

  4. This is really upsetting. When I was little, I had short hair, I didn't like dolls or dresses, and was more interested in dinosaurs and arcade games. I also used to pretend to be a boy and would make people call me by a boy's name that I had chosen, but it was just a child's fantasy game - I didn't think of myself as being a boy any more than I thought of myself as being, I don't know, a cat, or whatever else little kids pretend to be.

    The parents of this girl are probably well-meaning, because they're only doing what the psychologists tell them is mentally healthy for their child, but it's a tragedy that instead of researching the issue further, they're messing their kid up forever by putting her on a path to a lifetime of drugging and surgical mutilation.

    Can you imagine if a psychologist counselled a depressed child to start practicing self-harm because other depressed people suffering from that impulse claim it makes them "feel better?" Trannification is pretty much the equivalent.

  5. OMG, this story made me physically ill. And I am NOT exaggerating. It also ENRAGES me that these freaks have MUTILATED this little girl's body and mind. She will NEVER be the same, she will never have a chance at a normal life. And she's going to spend her now guaranteed-to-be-a-short-unhealthy-life having to explain to people what she is and is not in a way that no normal-bodied person has to. They've made her into an alien. OMG. The people who did this -- her parents and her freaking "gender specialist" should be life-imprisoned for felony child abuse, and that poor little girl given the real medical help she needs to recover what she can from this.

    As for the "good intentions" of these so-called "parents" and her "doctors"? I'm reminded of what C.S. Lewis said:

    "Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience."

    The psychiatrists and doctors who've created this whole gender illusion are the same "doctors" who have removed people's body parts, mutilated their bodies and brains, and more, all in the name of "care" and "science". This is NO different than performing lobotomies on "patients" to "lovingly" "heal" them of those parts of their characters or mood that aren't appreciated by the opinions and culture of the "doctors".

    I can't even continue, because I'll write all night. OMG.

  9. Nat,

    I had a very difficult time reading the piece myself. I was sickened.

    I see your quote with a quote by Janet Frame: "“For your own good'' is a persuasive argument that will eventually make a man agree to his own destruction."

  10. Sickening.
    So here's my story, not so different. I had terrible agonies about accepting being female as a child, it got worse as I got older, once I figured out the discrimination, and how I was treated different than my younger brother, his toys and games were so much cooler than mine, and what he got to wear, vs what they tried to put me into.

    Maybe ALL kids need to be treated gender neutral till a certain age. No pink rooms or blue rooms. See what interests and likes each kid gravitates to, types of clothes, toys and activities.

    I argued and argued with my parents that I was 'not a girl', cuz I hated all the girl things which had to do with sissy dresses, dolls and activities that basically added up to mommy's little helper in the kitchen or domestic sphere. BORING. I wanted to climb trees, and bike, and hold my own and do all the fun boy things, which mostly I did, and HATED when they'd force me in dresses and skirts and tell me how 'pretty' I looked, and that I couldn't go out to dinner with them or an event unless I dressed that way. I HATED it. I HATED being a girl.

    But Dirt, like you mentioned in one of your post-its on the article, it wasn't the BIOLOGICAL FACT of being female that bothered me, I also found those dally whackers to be terribly hideously ugly, it wasn't one of those I wanted, it was the power, the equal respect, the adventurous roles all the SuperHeros and Captain Kirk and gang got to do, the cool military and Warrior and Superhero and Star Trek outfits, not the skirts or dresses or girly things the helpless female characters wore and did...always needing to be rescued from the villian instead of kicking ass for themselves! At least in the '60's.

    And then Feminism came along. And I heard about it from the older girls I carpooled with in NYC to school, and it burned within me, that fight for Women's Civil Rights, that we could do ANYTHING, even be Astronauts and go to the Moon(even though none did, and there were no female astronauts then). Still, Feminism saved me from total hatred of the female, it in fact rescued me, and brought me PRIDE in being female...not like what I told my parents.

    "If you're not a boy and you're not a girl, then what are you?" And I'd say "I'm an alien from outer space." Cuz that's indeed how I felt.

    And then coming out as a Dyke, and a Butch, an extension of my lifelong Tomboy Self, was also a saving grace, and so very empowering. I finally found out who I was, IN A FEMALE BODY, where womyn told me you can 'be any damn thing you want to be, and be strong as a Woman!" As we did 'Take Back the Night' rallies, I taught Self-Defense to other womyn, and finally got my Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do....I finally found pride in my femaleness, thank Goddess, for the feminist, women's spirituality and Lesbian movements!

    These young women, girls, are taught NONE of that, again, like the article said, the gender is picked out and they are then boxed into the gender rules BEFORE THEY ARE EVEN BORN!! iT'S THE FUCKING GENDER RULES THAT SUCK, GET RID OF THEM, NOT THE SEX OR ASSAULT ON THE BODY/MIND!
