Trans Trending-Who is Transitioning


How tightly wound is the gender straight jacket when the male medical machine, tax payers, medical insurance companies and the loved ones of these young women would believe for a moment that any one of them has a "man" trapped within them??

  2. recently the news has been covering the prevalence of kids watching 'cutting' videos on youtube and then cutting... i think if they had any idea of how many girls are becoming what they think are 'men' via the same process there would be tremendous outrage!

    Which is why I'm doing these posts. Attention MUST be brought to this female tragedy.

  4. You've no doubt pointed this out before, but it bears repeating: A huge part of the problem is that they are too young to understand the long-term consequences of this decision. Research shows it:
    "The last part of the brain to fully connect up — well past the teenage years — is the frontal lobe, which houses judgment, insight, dampening of emotions and impulse control. Since it isn't fully developed, there's a cognitive chasm between coming up with an idea and being able to decide if it's actually a good one."

    Not tightly wound at all.

  7. In addition to what I just said in the last comment I want to add I think you need to get professional counseling for this unhealthy obsession you have with trans/FTMs. I don't mean that in a pejorative way at all. I really think you should get counseling.

  15. What I do not understand is why there can not be civil discourse/debate without disparaging each other. Dirt I notice you use 'inflammatory' words/phrases quite often in your posts such as 'murder'or as in this one " they are mentally too weak and fearful of reason." What does this accomplish?

    ReplyDelete
  16. Rylee,

    Transition IS about and is self murder, and the chosen weak faux self utilized to hide the core self is precisely why the trans community derails reason. I'm not going to pretty up the facts for anyone. Doing so is akin to what the male law/police have done in order to minimize the brutality of rape by now referring to it as "sexual assault".

  19. I hope this isn't derailing, because it is about transitioning. I do have an honest question for you Dirt. You are for young women overcoming trans feelings instead of the "body mutilation" of transition, correct? I may be wrong but I think that in you, this was eventually coming to love and accept yourself as a butch woman, yes? I am transgender, but have chosen not to transition, mostly for medical reasons. (I am over 25, so I believe am capable of making a sound decision on this.) I do my best to accept my body the way it was given to me, and do not plan to make unnatural changes to it, though I do understand why people do so. Is it so wrong that I accept that I am transgender, and label it as such? Is it being transgender that you have a problem with, or the actual transitioning? I do not claim to be male, of course. I do not pass as male. I do ask to be called a male name, but it is just a nickname, and I still use female pronouns. If GID is a mental disorder, and it is there no matter what I do, I may as well accept it and move on with my life. What else would you personally suggest that I do? Because I think that I have made the best decision I can: acknowledging my feelings without physically harming myself.

  21. Meiko Elias Xavier has just launched a few days ago a smart initiative, to do an inventory of all the FTM channels on YouTube.
    Every FTM having a channel is invited to introduce himself as a comment to this video :
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3EvyNgEQI3s

    I really look forward to see let's say the results in one month from now (by counting the comments). As we have demography stats about YouTube users/penetration rate, it will give us a prevalence rate of GID.

  24. "she always blames increased hormones and chemicals in the food/water supply for growing children

    I think she's right, though probably not in the way she intended. Our habitat is becoming more and more oestrogenated, which is a bad thing because it hastens female puberty compared to the age it would happen in a normal environment. Early puberty can intensify trans feelings as it did for me. If I could go back, I wouldn't eat any suspicious meat before puberty...

  28. Dirt: "Doing so is akin to what the male law/police have done in order to minimize the brutality of rape by now referring to it as "sexual assault".

    This is the first thing that has actually caught my attention.

    In my writing workshop last semester, I wrote a creative non fiction piece about a friend of mine who'd been raped and molested as a child. One of my peers who was critiquing me condemned my use of the word "rape" and "molestation" and suggested I replace them with "sexualized assault" (the critiquer was a young woman, btw) luckily my professor adamently disagreed, stating that rape is a powerful word that should absolutely still be used.

    I wonder if you could do an entry on that, Dirt. On the fact that all these terms have been replaced by "sexualized assault". And I wouldn't focus on it being a result of "the male medical machine" because as I said, the person who informed me of it was a young woman AND a strong feminine.

  29. What percentage of FTM's had early 'precocious' puberty?
    (I'm sure nobody has studied this yet.)

  31. Frankly I think everybody can do what he or she wants with her/his body. But he/she should not fool herself : having a massec or taking T are just comestics.
    It will not give you the opportunity to be a male because you were not born with a penis in the arms of your parents, you never walked for the first time as a little boy, you never went to kindergarden as a male kid and experienced intimacy with other males in a malehood perspective at early age, you were not socialised as males, your teenagehood was not as male....

    I have shown this blog and a selection of FTM YouTube channels to my father, a 65 years old opened minded person and he was really surprised.

    He told me he fears those persons may not understand exactly what it means to be a male living in a males world with biomales.

    According to him, they seem more willing to live as masculinised person in a women world which is not opened to biomales like lesbians bars or lgbt centers and they completely miss the fact that males identity is built on the long run with a lot of questioning from early age, teenagehood to adulthood...

    And he was really struck by the "masculinity" shown by those persons: he told me it was like they have learnt masculinity from reading books or watching movies as their male attitudes look too cliché too fake : he told me "but maleness is not that!, we are not males like in a mafia movies and even the eldest of us are not so macho anymore"...
    He thought that some of them were too focused on issues a 13 years old boy may have (first facial hair growth, acnea) but certainly not issues a young adult male may have....He told me "how can the 20-30 female partners of those persons can be interested in dating them ?: They date a person who has life interests of and looks like a teenage boy. Weird". He was surprised of the mother-son relationship he saw and moreoever when I told him some of the female partners were self-defining as "lesbians". He said "what the fuck?".

    He has wondered if those persons have had a talk or spent time with fathers, brothers, male cousins and friends. If they had really experienced to be in males world or places or club prior to do anything to their body to get exactly what it means to be a male.

    He told me than even with "old transitioners", they look like they haven't found yet a secure calm mellow place as males...

    He finaly asked me if those persons were just transitioning to a have a "special place/ a unique status or attract attention" in trendy bars, clubs or lgbt related universe like if they were above/on top/superior for example to lesbians or even gay males by playing on their double status.

    I could not answer and I would be interested to have your views ?

  33. Anon @8:19 - You see it over and over by "transitioning" - first dysphoria, then when the first "changes" come a period of Euphoria, and then back to dysphoria when they realise the problems aren't solved afterall.
    I sometimes think the older FtM's don't point out this cycle (or warn anybody)because mysery loves company, and now they have some kind of a group to belong to.

    ReplyDelete
  34. @Last Anon, I have watched the video and this person calls his "boobs": "tumors"...

    Some of those kids do suffer in fact from depression or schizophrenia or münchausen syndrome or narcissistic personality disorder instead of GID and those mental diseases lead them to remove healthy part of their bodies in order to get attention...

    A lot of FTM are so self-centred even after transition that we can really come to this conclusion.

    I am not exactly prude but transition is also a great opportunity for exhibitionism: look all those YouTube channels where they show they breats, scars, facial and body hair!

    All those videos online make it really easy to fake "GID symptoms" for a person who has other troubles.

    Being a trans give a valuable status for a sick person: it is more interesting socially to tell "I have depression because of GID", "I am a trans and narcissic" than telling "I was diagnosed with schizophrenia or narcissistic personality disorder alone"...

  46. The prevalence of the FTM trend does make one speculate as to whether there's some physical environmental cause (food supply, water, etc.) But really I'm more inclined to think it's mainly due to something in the air- SEXISM!

  47. Trans people have a tendency to do it too much to perform their desired gender: MTF looks like Marilyn Monroe but with 200% more make-up and FTM are have more tattoe and muscle than any bandidos in your gang next door...
    The good point of being a normal woman (I don't like the word cisgender) is I can go out in the streets without make up and still feel me...The same for my boyfriend: he does not need to work-out like hell and have macho pose to be masculine...

  48. nothing more ridculous than those that complain about apathy, but once you do start to question and care, those same people suddenly want you to mind your own buisness and leave them alone.

  49. Re: anonymous 2:59

    It's not the Rule but it does seem generally true that transpeople tend to overdo their presentation.
    There are probably regional differences and sub-cultural differences.
    There's always a transman and transwoman (the MTF super-tall and masculine, sort of the 'Tootsie' model; the FTM small with big hips and hairy face) walking together in my neighborhood here which makes the silliness of it all seem so apparent.
    The people they are with often makes it easier to notice FTMs. (I live in the city so everything is out on the street.)
    Generally, though, an FTM reads as totally female from a distance and then when 'he' approaches you realize what's up. Strange to see mental illness expressed physically in this way.

  50. On the subject of teen trends, our daughter has been mentioning that at her high school it seems to be fashionable to self-diagnose with various psychological disorders: everything from DID (dissociative identity disorder)to borderline personality, multiple personality disorder, schizoaffective disorder, Asperger's, etc, not to mention the kids who think they are vampires. Seriously, she says this is popular among her peers- I am not making this up! She says it's because they want to feel different and special, and have people pay attention to them. She also thinks that they also use this as a way to excuse personal problems or behavior. I swear, it gets weirder out there every day!

I just wanted to say, and i don't care how much you even think about this comment for now : One day soon the hatred you spout will be ended. You will end up with a law suit against you. You will end up with the bad karma coming back on you. You expect respect through the ramblings of hatred and intolerance. One day soon, everyone you have bullied will be able to smile and know the pain you have inflicted upon others has come to nothing, and you have been dealt with as the bully you are. I look forward to this day, as i know a lot of others do.

If those pictures stopped the anger would stop. But then we will never know that because *DIRTBAG* will never quit exploiting and belittling these kids on her blog in the name of being helpful.. I never thought I would say I don't care what happens to a person, but if something happened to Lynn, I flat would have a sigh of relief for these kids.

    DM.. This is not a major news flash. Pop Psychology has been going on for a long time. Self diagnosing has gone on as nearly as I can tell since the mid 80's if not sooner. But what the F does vampires have to do with DSM diagnosis'? ..and for the record, DID is the replacement DSM term for the old term of Multiple Personality Disorders. They now scale it on a continuum. Since the mid 80's so called adults have been self diagnosing, so it only makes sense the kids do what they see their parents doing at home in many cases.

    With what is being said about brain development of young people in this blog, anyone pre 25 should not be taken seriously if they say they are lesbian, or if they say they want to major in a specific topic. That is.. According to the theory of this blog.

    Also you and your comrades who find it acceptable to put these kids pics up over here on this blog are pretty much self admitting these kids are not mature enough to make the YouTube videos these pics are being snagged from. Hence; If your theory is true, those who place those pics over here or condone this blog really need to take a look at the fact the material is being permanently imprinted into the web from those who were not mature enough to make the video in the first place.. According to the theory of you, blue, and dirt. It makes no sense to me on one hand you and your group of bandits have your shero being a person who admittedly states these kids are not mature enough to do these videos, yet she is tampering with their future by slapping them up over here and ridiculing and berating them. It is mind boggling to me any of you find this acceptable and find ways to justify it. Especially you, DM. You have a child and if their picture ended up on someones blog and they were talked about in the way people talk about thes kids in this blog, I cannot imagine you would sit back quietly and let that happen.

    I am the Anon who posted above and I posted it as an ex-partner of a FTM.
    So I am in good position to know that when you date a FTM, you date a person who has a narcissistic personality disorder and is so interested by mainstream exhibitionism....

    I am a survivor a person who was caught in the trans illusion of my ex-partner and who lost a huge part of her life and energy and money for an illusion.

    I just want to point out FTM partners are often very sweet & kind person who are used by their FTM partner as toy to feed their NPD...Nothing more.

    I am glad I got out of it but the damages were important: it took me one year to get myself again into one piece after all my identities were destroyed by my abusive transboyfriend. Not to mention the bank account and the reputation he tried to destroy.

    Transidentity is a lie, there is nothing like plastic surgery and hormon created males but masculinised women with a lot of mental issues never cured by mutilation.

    But the biggest damages are done to the partner.

    If my testimonial can help someone to get out of it! Great!

    And yes I think we should more hear of partners of FTM on this blog.

    We are human beings too not just a mean to cure the insecure feelings FTM have and the up and down they will always feel whatever the hormons dose, whatever the surgeries...

    They know inside they are not males, just a fraud, just a lie so they put pressure on us: they ask us to give them the balls and the dick they don't have, they ask us to give birth to children who will be forced to call an artificially masculinised women "dad" even if the kid is a boy and has a bigger dick than is FTMdad at birth and it is crazy, do you understand?

  72. Anon @6:18,
    That is disturbing to think that the FtM "dad" would actually be learning how to be male from the baby boy as he grew up. I've seen in their videos how they think they will wait to tell their kids they are trans until the kid is 18 or so.
    But a male kid would figure out something is wrong with "dad" by potty-training time, because almost every little boy (who lives with a dad,) learns how to pee standing up with Dad. I know some people have a Dad in a wheelchair or whatever,where that's not possible, but these FtM "dads" are running around flexing, shaving, admiring their "chin straps", etc. and you can't fool kids.

  78. Testosterone is like any really strong drug. They get a real kick after they shoot up. Most of them also mention how irritable/short-tempered they get after it's petering out in their system, a few days before their next "shot."

  82. so i just watched on of the young persons videos who you have posted in here, and Dirt if you really cared you would reach out to these young people, this one set of alarm bells in my head, and i have massive concerns for this persons mental welfare, you can see the torment they are going through and you have placed a pic of them on here to "expose" them, when if you cared you would reach out, find out where they are from, and make damn sure they are NOT at serious risk esp of harming them self, please dirt use your skills to help these young people, and remember they are only young people/children they need positive help and guidence even if this person is a lesbian (once finding self) clearly there is other issues like family/religion

  83. @anon you will probably notice that many of those photos if not all are at least 10 years old if not more, please if you are going to post pictures at least show up to date ones, as many of those surgeons no longer operate, also and a trans person i find dirts blog a very useful source for gaining info, as i have spent endless hours searching things that you women seemed to have some how come across, but any way basically you save me much time wasting and now i spend my time where you lead me thanks dirt and her fellow sheep

  85. Smiley,

    I'm working on some self esteem tips aimed at gender, but I am one person and I cannot be everywhere at once. It is up to you as well to disseminate truthful info about transition.

    It is also up to you to flag these videos and get youtube to remove them so this trend can at least slow down. If you know someone who needs/wants to talk about their "gender feelings" you can always send them to me.

    I will be making more videos in hopes of reaching some of the trans trenders who arent too far out in the trans ocean. And I hope to do a few public speakings this year in order to bring a voice of dissent to this terrible medical tragedy.

    This is your experience with who you were with. As with any race, gender, or orientation not all treat their significant others poorly. If all of us judged partners by the BAD SEED we were with, none of us would ever partner again. Perhaps YOU need to get some counseling to get over the bad experience you had with this person instead of lumping all ftm's to be the same as the person you were with.

    ReplyDelete
  87. Anonn@10:50,

    Which is why it was brought up to do some studies here on the experiences of lesbians (and other women) who were partners with ftMs. And given that narcissism is a primary factor in all who transition, I think its safe to say her experience with her ftM partners narcissism is more the rule than the exception.

    Of course it is hard to make a video every week for your FTM partner. The time you spend doing video to worship the narcissism of your boyfriend, this time is lost for you as a woman and a partner even if it is for trivial stuff like having a candle and bubble bath! Who can ask sacrifice that much to a woman those days!

  94. I think the Anon who posted her dad's thoughts is spot on.

    I know this isn't the appropriate forum as it is a lesbian space, but I would like to see a study/article whatever on actual men's thoughts on the FTM transitioning trend. I think we would find they are much like this Anon's fathers opinions.

    It would be interesting to see what sort of real male role models these girls have in their lives or lack thereof, as it appears these young girls are play acting as men that don't really exist in real life and have no real male role models that don't act this way. It's very sad when you think about it, I feel sorry for these girls and the society which has given them little if any strong females to emulate, so they are imitating these characteurs of what they think men are.

    Just my thoughts.

    ReplyDelete
  95. "I think we would find they are much like this Anon's fathers opinions."

    Yes i am still very surprised how the father of those young women are absent from their YouTube videos and yes I am really concerned these women "dream a masculinity" instead of having valuable feedbacks from males around them. I don't thin that any of those girls went to her dad and said "Dad, I feel male" and the dad may have at least the opportunity to answer "what do you mean by feeling male?" so the 2 can share and start a real father-daughter talk about it...
    Most of the time, the girl start T, informs her mom first and then her father after 6 months on T...
    The Anon who posted about her dad shared wih us a unique testimonial.

No way am I trashing all butches,I don't even see you as butch.The butches I've been in relationships with have all had something in common-a gentle respectfulness for others who walk a difficult path.Where is your respect/compassion? You make out that you are self-aware.In my experience self awareness rarely goes hand in hand with such arrogance.How did this happen to you? I'm genuinely interested.

  101. If you consider women a "whole group of people" then, yes katy. And katy you do not "understand" my "hatred" because there is none. If I didnt care for girls/women I wouldnt work to help them to love themselves by working to dismantle misogyny where I can.

    Now if you chose to hate females and perpetuate misogyny then katy, this blog or my videos arent for you and I suggest you find spaces more to your narrow gendered thinking/beliefs.

  103. Dirt, I am confused. I used to believe that it was a feminist,lesbian butch blog. But I think that you and your sycophants are obsessed with FtMs thus the majority of posts about them. Frankly you and your sycophants in your posts sound like some conservative religious group who say that homosexuality is not natural. They are closed minded bigots who refuse to even consider the possibility that they MIGHT be mistaken.

    I would like to see people back up their arguments with FACT. Not using as a reference someones blog , a video on youtube or some anecdotal posting.
    Most of what I read in these post remind me of a saying I've heard, "If you can't overwhelm them with your knowledge, then baffle them with your bullshit". I see that a lot on here.

    You and many others use 'inflammatory' words,phrases,sentences to heighten the drama. This should be avoided in my opinion. It doesn't do anything to prove any point you are trying to make. Why not post an essay, Dirt as to why you are fixated with FtMs? Perhaps it is something in your history that has made you so passionate about this topic??

    I am curious to read your response..or those of your sycophants.

    ReplyDelete
  104. You know what the real issue with society is? The true core of misogyny? The trend that is spreading like wildfire amongst youth?
    Jersey Shore. Let's just take a break from discussing FtMs and focus on this foolishness.

    I feel pain every single time I hear a young teenager make an allusion to "Snooki". What kind of role model is she for young women? Her sole focus on the trashy show is to sleep with gorillas (aka men).
    I also believe that she may have had her shin bones filed down so that her mouth is at penis level.

    Anyone?

  109. Dirt, to borrow a phrase from one of your sycophants,BlueTraveler, your reply was pure 'strawman'. In my post I said I thought this blog was about feminist issues and butch lesbians. I am not very interested in FtM transistioning. Now don't avoid my previous post or this one. Please answer my query, what is your fixation with FtM? Is is from your own personal history? I notice that you avoid talking about this. What prompted this obsession that you have with transsexuals, FtM in particular. I don't think you awoke one morning and said,"Hmmm...today I want to devote myself to a crusade against FtM transsexuals".

    Oh,I do enjoy reading some of the responses that are posted. The inanity not to mention the absurdness of some are quite entertaining.

    In fact, your response if any will be interesting (I hope).Perhaps your response will be something informative and substantive.

    ReplyDelete
  110. I'm sorry to see that you deleted my earlier comment about the possible biological underpinnings of gender dysphoria, though I tried my best to ensure that we could have a respectful exchange of ideas without the emotional attacks and name-calling.

    So, I'll make a final comment and leave you in peace. The reason I'm so disturbed and saddened by the way you package what would otherwise be a significant idea that every FTM should be familiar with is your approach to what gender 'should' be. In your posts, you've written that real butches don't get fucked by men, that you're disgusted by FTMs who couldn't work in construction surrounded by born-male construction workers. You write with condescension and loathing about FTMs who go to 'the faggots' for sexual release. It sounds as if you're arguing that there's only one right way to be a man: physically strong, watches football, makes a living in manual labor... and fucks women. In other words, you sound exactly like the forces of heterosexism that make life tough for every queer person in America. Who would you be if you were born male? Would you already be in jail for gaybashing?

    And I have little hope that this anecdotal evidence will make any dents in the worldview you've constructed wherein every FTM is an emotionally stunted abomination, but it's my responsibility to try. Remember that there is more than one way to fight misogyny. In the high school where I teach English, 97% of my students are Latino or African-American; 75% of them qualify for the free or reduced lunch program because their families are poor; and anecdotally, I'd say at least 30% of them don't have or never see their fathers. The boys learn how to be men from their similarly impoverished, fatherless peers, and you can imagine the results. I'm one of the very few male figures they see who is successful, educated, drug-free, and also non-white. So it's also my job to show them what masculinity can be, so they can grow into manhood without deriding women or thinking they need to run with gangs to prove their masculinity. For what it's worth: there are FTMs fighting the same anti-misogyny fight as you, in roles that women wouldn't be able to fill.

  112. Chip not sure where you've gathered your information from regarding what I've said about men and Butches but it wasnt from me nor was it from this blog.

    You are a biological female and no amount of cosmetics is going to change that, the only "masculinity" your sharing with your male students is female, which had you not been a misogynist yourself you could have done without lying to yourself and them.

    And Chip, you cannot dismantle misogyny by thoroughly partaking in it.

    Most of what I read in these post remind me of a saying I've heard, "If you can't overwhelm them with your knowledge, then baffle them with your bullshit". I see that a lot on here."

    Yes R this is exactly what the trans community does with demands that their "personal truths" by accepted at face value and not questioned. The trans community offers no facts to butress their arguements beyond the stock "this is how I feel. Any one who asks questions is greeted with the rejoiners of "transphobe","educate yourself", and "you must have unresolved issues"

    "You and many others use 'inflammatory' words,phrases,sentences to heighten the drama. This should be avoided in my opinion. It doesn't do anything to prove any point you are trying to make. Why not post an essay, Dirt as to why you are fixated with FtMs? Perhaps it is something in your history that has made you so passionate about this topic??"

    And using words like sychophant is not inflammatory right? Since you bring up the issue of inflammtory language, why not do a search on the "anti dirt" postings on you tube and observe the "fact based" arguements. One example where dirt is referred to as "yeast infected". Other web blogs offer to give out dirts personal address and accuse her of fabricating posts. And that does not ratchet up the drama I suppose.

    Since you ask if dirt has an issue, it is fair to ask why all of the hysteria from the trans community when valid questions are asked, especially around the same 6 studies that trans people like to cite. I have never seen a cogent analysis put forward, the links are just copied and everyone is supposed to accept them as gospel. For something that is presented as fait accompli, the trans community has shown a very obvious reluctance make their case without resorting to emotionalism.

    ReplyDelete
  124. Per your request C, I am posting again.

    Hi Canadian or C, this is directed to you. In your response I noticed that all you could talk about was the 'trans community'. To use one of Bluetravelers comments..your response is pure 'strawman'.

    My comments were not exclusive of the 'trans community' but instead are inclusive of the people who post responses on Dirts blog as well as dirt herself.

    You consider sycophant 'inflammatory'? For those that aren't aware of the definition I post it here. "A servile self-seeker who attempts to win favor by flattering influential people." Allow people to draw their own conclusions. As to your issue with 'anti dirt' postings why would I go trolling for these sites? I had told dirt that it was the feminist/butch lesbian parts that intriqued me.

    I did ask if dirt has an issue. She has studiously avoided my question when I asked what in her life put her on this path. Perhaps you would post why you are obsessed with the 'trans community' and FtM in particular.

    I noticed in your post you mention 'the same 6 studies that trans people like to cite'. Instead of posting anecdotal 'evidence' Perhaps you can produce these studies that you talk about. Would you mind posting the studies that support your position?

    As for the last part of your post, I think you are being slightly hypocritical.

    " the trans community has shown a very obvious reluctance make their case without resorting to emotionalism."

    I suppose that you deny that dirt and her sycophants aren't, through their very use of inflammatory words,phrases,sentences that very emotionalism that you accuse the 'trans community'?

    Or are you in denial? Perhaps you might consider the term 'bigot'. I believe that there are many who post here that word describes.

    If dirt did not comment on the trans community in the way she does you would not be here using terms like bigot and mounting ad hominem attacks. It is disingenuous of you to suggest otherwise. You do not attack pro trans posters for their inflammatory language just dirt and her "sychophants" why not?

    "You consider sycophant 'inflammatory'? For those that aren't aware of the definition I post it here. "A servile self-seeker who attempts to win favor by flattering influential people." Allow people to draw their own conclusions."

    Servile, self seeking? person of influence?--Is merely agreeing with someone servile and self seeking? What in my posts leads you to this conclusion? But yeah right, making such accusation is not inflammatory(rolls eyes)

    "I noticed in your post you mention 'the same 6 studies that trans people like to cite'. Instead of posting anecdotal 'evidence' Perhaps you can produce these studies that you talk about. Would you mind posting the studies that support your position?"

    I have responded to these studies in other posts on this blog...you can look that up, but of course, you seem to think viewing things the net is "trolling" so maybe you won't. God forbid you see something that challenges your smugness.

    If the " feminist/butch lesbian parts" are the only interest to you, why are you so interested in the FtM discussions, and why do you keep hunting for ulterior motives behind such postings?
    Why do you attempt to disparage them by accussing the posters of being in denial?

  127. Dear Dirt,

    You know, I was just wondering:

    Do you ever worry that, by posting the faces and youtube accounts (and thereby possibly, location) of these "transmen" you may be putting them in danger? Sure it may be true that what some ftms elect to do could be deemed as "self-murder" or "self-rape," but if you were to find that you at all facilitated the rape and murder of any women by non-women or non-feminists, would you still find it worth it to have made these posts?

    In other words: Does stoping the self-hatred in ftms justify the means of facilitating outside hatred and violence. Is the a less of greater evils type of thing?

    I'm really interested to read your view. Thanks!
