Another Spared from Trans Trending

Received last night and in an eerily similar vein to the last thing I posted here. Regarding both emails, more than any strength they may have derived from my blog, here is two examples of true female strength and bravery. Because strength and bravery is exactly what it takes to live life as a female in this world who dares to turn her back on the colossal pressures surrounding us all from societal conventions and the gender straight jacket those conventions are hell bent to strap each and every female in!

Bravo to all the brave females out there who are turning their backs on trans trending and if you have a story to share, I'll be more than happy to feature it here.Together we can both help to make a difference by changing and expanding what a female is and can be, WITHOUT changing from female to "male"!

  3. That was a beautiful letter. I've never had feelings of "transgenderness," (no offense intended, I'm not intimately familiar with the jargon) and I've never questioned my femaleness, but I know how hard it is to be a confident woman in today's society. I've lurked around your blog for months and I wanted to echo part of the message in that letter. I don't see hatred in what you say, Dirt. I see concern and fears for the future. Why would you not feel empathy for women who are hurting so very much that they decide to do something so drastic and virtually irreversible? I also understand why people become so defensive, but I don't blame you for this. Thank you for maintaining this blog.

  4. If you want to watch bullshit go there http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3DeA7iQGERw It is called "Is transness a fad? "

  7. This blog makes me feel bad about myself and yet I can't stop reading it. Or I am addicted to causing myself pain, or there is some truth in here somewhere...

  8. Thank You Dirt for everything you do shining a light on the ways that hatred of women and the fucked up rules of "gender" impact females. Especially those females that instinctively want to reject the lies of gender but end up tragically conforming to it -with the help of the medical establishment, government, church, and families and friends who would rather see females butcher themselves than love themselves the way they are.

    There is no greater gender propagandist than a person that has permanently butchered themselves in loyalty to and adherence to gender. They feed on girls who seek options and escape from a life of sexist, women-hating, second-class citizenship.

    I'm glad you're here providing counterweight to the incredible pressure being placed on females by genderists. You have set many many females back on the right path to pride and fighting the bullshit we call gender. So much harder to fight the world- but women such as the poster HAVE the power. To FIGHT and to FUCK THE WORLD. Kick ass! xox

  9. I am always reluctant to share my views on this because people ARE going to be hurt, especially those who have fully transitioned - obviously, because it's irreversible. It's like if a friend got a tattoo I didn't like (um, and lets say if it was impossible to remove tattoos), I would never tell them I didn't like it, that would be horrible and rude in my books.

    So it's the same with friends who've transitioned. I hate the idea of hurting people, yet I agree passionately with almost everything you write on this blog. That worries and confuses me sometimes because trans friends would call this my own "gender issues" or "hatred", so I keep my views secret from them but I get more and more confused about them. Maybe alot of people aren't speaking up about this? I can understand why.

    It's weird to have such a moral divide with people I've always been so ethically synchronised with. I wander if it's my ignorance or their's sometimes. That maybe I actually am trans and in denial, but i just instinctually don't feel that's true. Your views on this seem much more authentic to me, though they're not sexy or socially acceptable amongst my friends, and let's face it - we all want to fit in. Gah, I just don't know what to think.

  10. Warning women of the dangers of this nonsense is a real public service. We need to get out the truth about just how dangerous this invasive surgery is, how trans trending is just that--- a new harmful trend, just like shooting up heroine is cool in some circles. If girls and women can't fully be themselves, it proves the danger of the ever creepy and adapting patriarchy.

  11. Anon@2:09- It's true we all want to fit in. And those of us who strongly reject sex roles are forced to be outliers. Conservatives will embrace us if we accept the role. Genderists will embrace us with open arms if we embrace the role and "deny" the sex. Those of us that reject the role without rejecting our biological sex have a harder row to hoe. Takes mad bravery and courage, and no doctors to "fix" us. A daily fight with no end. But we are the ones who will change the world. Kick ASS!

  12. The hippies in the sixties didn't know they were a trend when they dropped a bunch of acid, went to live on communes and had a bunch of babies named Pomegranate. They felt they were on a liberatory cusp of human evolution. In fact they knew it! Well maybe they did change society somewhat (?) but now they are all tracking their 501K. The kids injecting synthetic hormones will also grow out of the trans trend and will be looked back on as a quaint 21st century phenomena- an outburst of sexist transhumanist gender-based body mod. Many with bad tribal tattoos and excessive body hair- except on head ;)

  13. There is no "heavily biased propaganda" here. I'm happy Dirt is able to help some of these confused young women with her honesty and clear logic.

  14. "What do you call it when information is presented out of context, to support one side of an argument, and any real attempt at debate is deleted?"

    Nearly every trans blog on the internet.

  15. Dirt you are doing a good thing. You help people who are not really transexual realize it. That helps end the trend because it is nothing to play about.
    Though others like myself you are helping us through our transition. Thank you Dirt for helping end the trend, and show how serious a decision it is to transition.

  16. Do you guys now what strange is? If transition is the answer and people are happy why are they insulting Dirt? Why can't they take critique? If you are truly happy you have no need to do such things.

    I totally feel you. I'm too afraid to say anything to my group of friends. Many of whom have transitioned.

  19. I'm FTM. I have no reason to hate you. I don't know you. I lived as a woman who rejected the role given by society for a long time. I still do to an extent. However, the difference between women who reject their gender role and FTMs is primarily physical. I do not believe in gender, per se. There is just who you are as an individual, and there is your sex/body. However, what transition means to me is making my body something I am comfortable with. There is nothing wrong with a female body, I love female bodies, however, that is not me. In simple moments such as masturbating, I know it is more natural for me to do it as though I have male genitalia - and that's when it is pleasurable. So, just like you feel more comfortable wearing a certain shirt or hair style than another, and being forced to have/wear something you felt horrible in wouldn't work for you, similarly "wearing" a female body doesn't work for me. Also, I don't try to be a super-butch stereotypical man. I can wear make up or not - wear what would be considered female and/or male clothing, etc. Gender-wise, most would classify me as androgynous. I, however, really don't care for gender, and just do whatever is comfortable for ME, regardless of society's expectations for women, men or anyone else. Part of me being comfortable means changing my BODY. I hope you can understand at least that much. I think fighting and arguing is not the answer. We should seek to understand each other instead and learn to accept one another.

  20. Anon@12:51,

    I'm a feminist, I would never support anything that supports the hatred of females, such as transition.

  21. "Do you guys now what strange is? If transition is the answer and people are happy why are they insulting Dirt? Why can't they take critique? If you are truly happy you have no need to do such things."

    Why should I sit back and let someone try and tell me the decision I made to transition, to find a way of living comfortably within my own body, that decision that hurts nobody else, is akin to raping a woman?

    And Dirt can't take critique - she deletes comments that undermine her arguments, leaving the raging comments from angry trans people, because they support her worldview.

    Have a look here at comments that were perfectly calm and rational, but were deleted because Dirt can't cope with actual debate:

    it's actually true. your a troll as is 'john' which i think you two are one in the same but thats beside the point. so heated up about all this that you have to start tumblr pages just reposting all the comments you so choose. that's pretty obsessed.

    much like the white christain conservative men in power, who preach how much they hate homo's yet have a gay prostitute lover on the side. but they are gonna stick to their guns and tell you just how much they are not gay over and over and over and over.

    the highly defensiveness in itself is highly questionable.
