Fear and Hacking in the Trans Community

Third time in the last month someone/s has tried to hack my blog. More proof of the hate, anger, fear and paranoia that IS the trans community. A minute speck in the blogosphere that questions the treatment of the trans disorder and simplifies how the trans disorder is developed and along with being pummeled daily with hate from the trans community, some in that community feel this speck must be silenced at all costs!

If you are on the fence about the trans condition and the trans community, ask yourself this, what exactly is the community hiding and why?

  1. An inconvenient truth they want to hide at all means...Cult members have a tendency to panic when they get desesperate and are confronted with their illusions and the truth.

  2. All the cloak and dagger does is harm the young girls seeking truth. The trans community supports the transition of children, which is a serious reg flag to just how mentally ill this community is. Who in their collective right mind would promote/encourage the harming children?

  3. why are all these assumptions being made about an entire community i just happen to be apart of. how come while i accept freedom of speech and expression and couldn’t care less if this blog stays up, i get grouped in with the bad eggs, why am i having assumptions made about me simply because i belong to a certain group of people i don’t even socialise with.
    why are people making assumptions that i want to indoctrinate people in to being trans or that i have something to hide.
    isn’t generalizations like this something the LBG community have been fighting for, for years now?
    how fucking Ironic.

  4. If you are against drugging and mutilating healthy bodies, against the co-option of lesbian identities by queer/trans groups, and work towards keep historical lesbian facts and lives in place, then by all means feel free to say so here and now, we're all listening.

  5. What's the matter, dirt? Can't afford your very own top surgery? We already know you don't need to take T considering you already look and sound like a truck driver. Now if there was just something you could use to get rid of ugly... damn.

  6. I have awesome tits, why on earth would I want to have a mutilated chest in place of them? Besides, Femmes LOVE them and I love Femmes, its a win win

  9. Look, I'm going to try this anyway although by reading your posts and your reactions I don't think you will even try to read what I'm going to say.

    I'm not an FTM, I'm a girl, proud of it and I happen to be gay, too. But what I don't understand is your aversion and condescendance towards the trans community.

    Don't you see that they are going through what gay people had to go through years ago? They have to tell people, they have to come out of their 'trans-closet' in fear of their friends and families and environment to abandon them.

    All of your self-acceptance, feminism crap. What if I'd tell you that you were simply denying your own womanhood and femininity because you're compensating in another woman instead of a man? The fact that you go for other women, doesn't make you complete as a woman.

    Now I don't support above statement, but I know plenty of people who do. Why would they be wrong when you compare it to YOUR point of view? Just try looking it at it. You're basically saying that an FTM isn't accepting himself for who 'she' is, but at thesame time, it could be said that you don't accept yourself as a true woman because you overcompensate by finding yourself a woman.

    Instead of deleting my post, please think of it. You're only spreading the hate and fear that you accuse the trans community of being.

    THAT's a good example how transpeople think. You can't be a masculine woman. Nope you have to multilate your body 'cause you are actually a man. What a sad bunch.

  11. @Anon,

    Not sure how from my blog you came to the conclusions that you did. Clearly I discuss how this disorder is developed, and how the male medical machine with its centuries of misogyny is ignorantly treating this disorder.

    What is your conclusion on how this disorder is developed and treated, as well as what is your opinion on its treatment which is based in homophobia as well as how do feel about John Moneys GID in comparison to his Consensual Pedophilia? Wondering as well, do you feel BIID should be treated similarly to GID? Such as if a person believes they should have been born without legs, should their legs be amputated?

  12. "Promote/encourage harming chldren?"

    YOU'VE GONE TOO FAR, DIRT. That is SERIOUSLY fucked up. Are you accusing FTMs of child abuse now? When will your disgusting allegations end?

    I would NEVER, EVER harm a child. I was really, really hurt as a kid and the idea that you would accuse me of being part of a group that harms children makes me fucking puke. Fuck that, and fuck you.

  13. ftM,

    Then perhaps you should direct your anger where it belongs, the multitude of trans communities promoting transition among children. Dont shoot the messenger.

  15. Dirt, this reminds me of a situation I was in as a young person:

    I figured out I was a lesbian at age 15. (This was 20 years ago.)When I came out shortly thereafter, my father was furious, routinely kicking my ass and overall being not supportive, while my mom kept crying and telling me I was going to hell. I got out of there at 17 and came to terms with myself and rejected my family's narrow-minded bullshit.

    At the time, being gay or lesbian was just not ok, at least in semi-conservative middle-class America. It sure made me feel shitty about myself, those years of beatings and rejection.

    I firmly believe that transsexualism is following the same path. Young people who are questioning their sex/gender identity are being harassed by people like YOU, and probably getting their asses kicked at home because being trans is just not acceptable (yet). A young person can't get on T anyway until they are 18 - it's not like some 14 year old can just walk into a doctor and recieve a script for T.

    A much better approach than your confrontational, abrasive, offensive one would be to support the kids in their confusion, help them to talk it out, and, obviously, not encourage them to transition until (a) they are really sure that's what's right for them, as proven by sufficient time in therapy, and (b) they are over 18.

  16. "Personally, I've never seen anyone in the trans community try to pressure children, or anyone else, into transition."

    This is also what I've observed. It's straight-up taboo to even mention that you think someone might be trans. Everyone in my community wouldn't touch anyone else's identity with a ten foot pole if they seem to be struggling gender issues. I've been sought out by young questioning individuals for advice and I only tell them about my experience-I don't offer any advice, and certainly not pressure. Whereas it seem that it's still common practice for gays to peg people they don't know as gay and insist that they come out of the closet.

    Well the evidence on this blog seems to suggest something quite different when the trans community is questioned. The questioner is subjected to suggestions they might be trans. So much for your "taboo".

    I wish I knew where that was, b/c it could be a role model community for all those lesbian and queer communities where "queer femmes" are telling butch and dykey women that they should consider transitioning, pushing them to take T, etc. And don't say it doesn't happen. It happened to my gf, and to other butch women I know. Questioning someone's gender identity, unfortunately, is par for the course when the person whose gender is being questioned doesn't conform to society's expectations of what females should look like. :(

    To be fair, what those people say should not be generalized to any community at all. I know there are lots of trans anger on this blog, but I kind of liken it to saying, 'bees enjoy stinging' and prodding a nest as an example.
    But yeah, I think anyone who tells someone else they are trans is a stupid.

  20. "What's the matter, dirt? Can't afford your very own top surgery? We already know you don't need to take T considering you already look and sound like a truck driver."

    Look, I'm a transman, and I agree dirt is wrong, and WAY over the top on the assumptions and generalizations about the trans community... but now you're coming back at her with the kind of bullshit I am trying to fight. I admire strong Butch women and don't think Butch = trans. A Butch can dress/talk/walk/present any way she wants to and not be a man. So express your beliefs and your truth all you want, but please don't make bullshit statements like that and make the rest of us look bad for chrissake.

  21. Dirt had a poll up not long ago and ftms voted overwhelmingly that children should be medically transitioned before the age of consent.

    The reasoning that if you question trans issue you must be trans yourself is not limited to this blog. I have seen it on pro trans blogs as well. I would link to them to prove me point, however then I would be accused of appropriated the "trans voice" or stalking.

  23. Dirt,

    first, I don't agree with your view on transsexuals.

    However, I feel I should apologize for the behavior that you've received from the queer community. You've every right to post your opinion and feelings especially in your own space. You're a brave woman to continue doing so despite all the threats and nasty insults. So, even if I disagree with you, I really respect you for doing so.

    Sorry that so many of us are so nasty.
    --

    And @ some of the responses here... All I have to say is... seriously? Accusing someone who's completely comfortable with herself of being trans?

    I can understand trying to get your point across, but seriously, guys? Grow up. Respect the woman's right to read and write about whatever the fuck she wants and go read something else if it's not what you like. Go put your energy into stopping hate crimes, if you've got so much of it. She's not hurting anyone.

    And trying to hack a blog...? I don't even.

  24. I agree with Anon @March 11, 2011 9:00 PM

    Im dead against some of these comments you are recieving..

    ALSO, if someone did try to hack your blog but failed, shows really how pathetic they are, in all honesty a) its not hard to hack an account
    b) rather childish dont you think?
    c) it may not have been a person affiliated with the LGBTQI community it could simply have been a loser web freak

  25. Hey dirt I just wanted to drop a comment just to I don't know show that there is good in the trans community and there are those amongst the trans community who finds the encouragement of children, of minors, to start any kind of hormone therapy to be wrong.

    I am 19 years old, so young in the world by every sense, I have gone through therapy, through counsellors, through psychiatrists, through specialists and at each step I have been questioned to the point of interrogation about if this was the right thing for me. Doctors have never encouraged me to take hormones, in fact some have tried discouraging me to see that I was absolutely sure.

    Anyway the point is that I am glad that you are comfortable as you are in your body and that you are comfortable with being a butch female, it does take guts even now to face the criticism and accusations of being a closeted ftm and say "no, im a woman". So I do really respect you for that.

    I won't attempt to apologise on behalf of ftms because it isn't my place to do so, but I will encourage you to keep writing, even in the face of such vehement hate. Those who are comfortable and mature enough will be able to read your blogs and quietly disagree without feeling the need to shoot you down with hateful comments and accusations.

    I don't want to sound patronising to you at all because you are a smart lady. Your knowledge of lesbian history and feminism is something that takes a lot of reading and a lot of understanding.

    With respect

  26. In my previous comment above, I am literate, I don't know why the above "I don't know is there" I must have missed it when I read through.

  27. K,

    I appreciate your trying to show a positive side to the ftM community.

    That said, Butch women dont "feel comfortable" in our bodies, we mature and work hard to accept our selves. Being "othered" as Butches creates a huge chasm that only worsens with puberty. While we may learn to narrow the gap, a gap still remains.

    Again thanks for the nice comment.

    I'm aware that it comes up often. I'm aware that it comes up often in other spaces. I'm actually agreeing with you that the reasoning is silly (understatement). I'm just saying that it shouldn't be made into a blanket statement.

    Also, I'm curious why you added an 'e' to my name? I'm not sure if it's a typo or a subtle jab at my sex, since I see that plenty round here. (I'm an intersex person, though, so... I'm not sure why you'd want to go there anyways. In any case, whatever name I used I don't want it manned up or womanned up in the responses. It's only 3 letters long.)

    Nice try...in your response you did not mention other blogs and implied that the response Dirt got was because people were provoked.

    "Also, I'm curious why you added an 'e' to my name? I'm not sure if it's a typo or a subtle jab at my sex, since I see that plenty round here. (I'm an intersex person, though, so...

    Sigh, get over yourself...It is not all about you and your sense of persecution....Mistakes happen without hostile intent..Anyone who has read my responses knows I typo alot...

  30. I think lots of the response is to them being provoked. I don't think that's the whole of the anger. Bees do sting, but they sting more frequently when you prod the nest. Actually, I think it's a pretty apt comparison. I think the people who post on this blogs and others with hate or suggestions of 'need to transition' towards Dirt, or any butch woman who is happy with being a butch woman, that's pretty wrong. I just don't think it's the entirety, or even most, of the ftm community. And where it is present, I think it's stupid stupid nonsense.

    Also, I'm not trying to make it about me, I'm just trying to assess whether there is a subtle jab being made which I should quirk my eyebrow at as I assess the kinds of tactics you may use, or if it's a harmless typo. I just see a lot of sex-based jabs being exchanged here and I like being on the up and up about what's going on.

  32. "That said, Butch women dont "feel comfortable" in our bodies, we mature and work hard to accept our selves."


    To say butch women don't feel comfortable in their bodies, is abiding by the standard, is it not?


    In all honesty label yourself whatever you need to, but dont conclude that everyone feels the same as you do.

    However, saying, "we mature and work hard to accept our selves." is positive and hopeful, except its just stating the obvious human growth in a person.

    Its not wise to make those statements. These kind of statements puts holes in this blog.

    I must admit this blog is about as tempting as those rag mags in the check out aisle, good thing Im not paying for it!
