Here is the other email I referred to in my last post. More idiotic than the "discussion" regarding men in women's private spaces.
"Getting rid of gender"? Are you fucking kidding me? Wouldnt that be better discussed at say a national _____ conference, rather than a WOMENS conference?
There isnt a thing wrong with gender, there are men, there are women, and a small minority of in-betweens who are themselves predominantly male or female and live as such (provided they are allowed).
The problems arise when individual males and females are too cowardly, too ashamed, too ignorant, too self hating (due to patriarchal misogynistic systems in place which they fail to fight/see through) to live being the kind of male or female they naturally are. (and I am not speaking of autogynephiles (hetero Mtfs) here-clearly thats a serious mental illness) There isnt anything wrong with male or female, there is everything wrong with how post modernism has easily convinced the desperate that male and female is more than male and female to the point some actually THINK they are one sex "on the inside" and another sex "on the outside". WHA? Gender equals sex, always has, always will. You can thank post modernism for some ignorantly thinking like "sex" they can mutilate words into a whole new meaning mid-way through as well. But to the majority who live and breath reality, those changes only occur in the heads of ignorant or disordered.
Getting back on track, this is more of men doing what men do, wasting womens time with BULL SHIT in order to keep women from working on REAL WOMENS issues.

THIS is what is being discussed at a National Women's Study Conf.??? While I deal with Butch invisibility every day I walk out my door, while I deal with regular negative experiences when using a public restroom, even I read this shit and go WTF??? Hello! Its 2010 and women in the US STILL do NOT have an ERA, over a million women a year report being raped, women make only 76 cents to a man's dollar, less if you're a poor minority woman, domestic abuse of women is immeasurable, 1 in 3 collage age women will be raped, 1 in 4 women sexually abused in her life, women are sexually objectified in all media forms, women are conditioned to adhere to those patriarchal media forms to perform for the male gaze if they are to have any worth, through trying to adhere to media forms women are developing multitudes of disorders related to body dysphoria when they cannot measure up to plastic female images created solely for the pleasure of mens penis's.
I could go on all night as any woman knows, but apparently the real issues affecting the majority of women, have no bearing when men posing as women are running the show. Like your average run of the mill man in the street, THEIR problems MUST come first! MAN MAN MAN = ME ME ME And from the looks of things women are letting them by even entertaining their special agenda's as a WOMENS event! This is yet another tactic for men to gain legal entrance into women's most private spaces.This also hurts actual women like Butches who due to invisibility issues have to deal with crap when using those same womens spaces despite actually being women. But for all the crap, as a woman I understand why women freak when seeing a woman like me in the bathroom. Not being exposed to Butches in general most women do not look too close, so quickly make a leap to male, and their very next thought is rape. I as a Butch understand this, and deal with it for the sake of women, for my love and care for women. Like every female alive, women KNOW from a few years of age they are susceptible to rape. It is something on some level with all women all the time in all places. I wont get into what this says about men and the patriarchal systems currently in place.
Men posing as women? Rape is the last thing on their minds, because they grew up being potential raper's rather than potential rape victims. This doesnt change because their penis and nutsack has been stitched inside their body cavity. So when issues like womens private spaces comes up, Mtf men have no idea what womens fears really are about, and through their male privilege could give a shit about. You dont see any topics regarding how to deal with womens rape fears when seeing a non traditional appearing female in the rest room on that list did ya? Neither did I!
If Mtf's truly believe they're are women, they would use their first hand knowledge of men to fight for changes in how women are treated by men so when a 6'4" Mtf in a cheap skirt and heelz enters the ladies we wouldnt worry about being raped!

A beautiful comment made to an older post of mine from a Femme last night. I often write of the value of Femmes, my value of Femmes but I sometimes forget their need to be validated, validated as subject instead of hetero object, their need to be validated as legitimate lesbians, their need for lesbian visibility, their need to have the fucking shame wiped from their bodies and minds, their need for Butch kindness and Butch love.
I will make more of an effort to write about Femme issues, because as a Butch we are in this together, because without each other, neither of us really exist. Your eye, my eye equals us.

From a man who recently tried to "friend" me at FB.
A picture perfect example of your run of the mill Mtf. Straight, white, married, middle aged and completely ignorant regarding women and lesbians. What ignorant assumptions!
These Mtf's make up the majority of men who seek trannification. While it is impossible due to the pathological lying of all "trans" people, based on many many years of occupying "trans" spaces of all kinds I wager they number somewhere in the high 90 percentile with gay men comprising the other few percent.
These are the men who think because they rub their cocks while wearing clothes patriarchy deems female, they can simply default to a "lesbian" status after they have taken their fetish as far as they can through trannification. These are also the men who are legally fighting to have the legal right (regardless of what stage of trannification-not that it matters really) to enter freely into womens bathrooms, womens locker rooms, showers, dressing areas etc.
These are not the tiny percent of queenish gay men who through pathological homophobia convinced themselves they are "women trapped in mens bodies" in order to escape their internalized homophobia. These men never felt and never feel "trapped in the wrong body". These men (men btw running the "trans machine") developed a fetish through the familial while pre-teen usually, then combined with misogyny/male privilege later convince themselves they are "true transsexuals"(as if there were such a thing). The pathology behind these men is not in BEING women, but in OWNING women. They seek through self creation to create a "female" image they can control and sexually ab/use whenever they feel the need. And as in the example here, note the "female" image is the image patriarchy deems "female/feminine". An image for the male gaze strictly for masturbatory purposes, these men are both at once gazed and gazer.
Interestingly between having their cocks mutilated into a monstrosity that no/longer properly functions and years of being on faux cancer causing female hormones, many will begin taking synthetic male hormones because they cannot get aroused in order to enjoy the rape fantasies of the "female" self they went all out to create! But even that in no way measures up to the fantasy, because of the extreme pain involved in penetrating the body cavity their testes descended from. This penetration is on going, like the faux cancer causing female hormones for the rest of their lives or else their cavity will close up like the wound their male body understands it to be, this is call "dilation". (a graphic pic of a mutilated penis/scrotum that doesnt even resemble an actually pussy-dont get me started on the weird/scary pubes in that pic or the hole being in the wrong spot!)
The short of it, (pun intended) is straight white middle/upper middle class married men are the majority of (trans)men seeking legal recourse (right now) to get into women's (girls) most intimate private places by defaulting to a "female" status. An illegitimate status PAID for with MONEY, NOT in actually BEING women. In typical male fashion these men believe "woman" is something for sale, something a man can purchase, something a man can own, in effect a "whore". These men believe there is nothing more to "woman" than a cosmetic hole and a good pair of heelz.
