LESBIAN Mag Curve-Promoting Transmale Mag

Curve magazine, who claims to be a LESBIAN magazine is promoting a new TRANSMALE mag! Given that the majority of transmen were lesbians, its horrifying that a magazine supposedly supporting and promoting the positive aspects of lesbianism would be promoting such an anti-woman/lesbian mental disorder. A disorder based in misogyny, homophobia and the maintenance of strict gender norms per patriarchy. Gender norms lesbians are working to break down!

Here is a link to contact Curve. Let them them know that trans issues are NOT lesbian issues and promoting transition to "cure" female self hatred is both femalephobic and lezbophobic!

  1. I'm trans yet I don't fear women nor do I fear lesbians. Having a phobia means you have a fear of something. I don't fear women nor lesbians. What reason would I have to fear them? That just makes no sense.

  2. If you're a female transitioner, you feared being the woman you were and the female you will remain. If not, you wouldnt have transitioned.

  3. I was just reading that Curve got sold to an Australian company. Anyone remember back when it was called 'Deneuve?' (Before Catherine put an end to that!)

  4. I thought Wendy started Curve, and she was an ex from whoever was doing Deneuve(or whatever it was called.) Curve is just about advertisement, so don't be surprised if they jump on the trans wagon.

  5. Thanks for the link, Dirt! I'll be sure to drop them a line and tell them I'm proud of them for their compassion and acceptance of transpeople.

  6. Ditto. Also I'll be sure to let them know that the notorious trans hater blogger Dirt tried to drag their name through the dirt for being nothing more than compassionate and decent human beings towards transsexuals.

    Thanks for the link.

  7. I think it's more of a fetishization than compassion.

  8. I haven't come here for my daily serving of crazy lesbian rants in a while. Glad to see Dirt remains consistent; however, you are getting more ridiculous with your writing. But PLEASE continue because I enjoy this immensely. Transfolk and allies, don't take Dirt seriously. She is just a bully with internet access. The community at large is not paying attention, save her group of followers. Folie a deux is real.

  9. I do have a question; do you not consider transwomen, who have given up their male privilege, real women? Are they also deserving of shaming? They are giving up being considered the norm to be the minority. Thoughts?

  10. I'm still reeling from the shock that apparently Dirt has accepted the male medical machine's diagnosis of her own mental illness-to serve her own purposes. Now she can sit at home and collect disability paid for by YOUR taxes while the rest of us bust our asses all day. Dirt, did you tell the doktor you'd been driven crazy just by the existence of transsexuals?

  11. Hmmm, it seems that the more right on you are, the more personal the attacks that pop up.

    Somehow, they have bought into the idea that surgically altering your body magically breaks down polarized gender roles. I have always found that highly perplexing.

  12. @6:21,

    Absolutely false. You should probably look for a more reliable source, because Dirt actually works for her money.

  15. Congratulations to Curve for supporting the LGBTIQA community and remembering that we're all in the together.

    Dirt maybe you could learn from them.

    Everyone in the community is in a fight for equal rights. It makes me sad to be a lesbian when I see other lesbians who are so transphobic.

    I feel bad for you Dirt and hope that you're able to get over your fears soon.

  16. I knew someone who was there at Curve's beginning, in a little office in SF. To get started, it was all about getting glossy advertising, and that hasn't changed. The Lesbian part came in second.

  17. Wait so they can only be a lesbian magazine if they only advertise for other lesbian magazines. Would this upset you as much Dirt if they were advertising for a gay magazine?

  18. If you guys hate her so much, think she's so pathetic, not worth your time, etc. then why do you read her blog, talk about her, laugh about her -- not just "at the club" but here too? Why not spend your time on something else?

    ReplyDelete
  19. "No one takes her seriously. All the people at the club I go to just sit and laugh at her."

    Well, there are some sick fuckers out there!

    Except of course it isn't just dirt, there are lots of lesbians and radical feminists out here who have finally got the courage to start exposing the trans lie. And as feminists, we've seen it all before, men trying to remove the threat to their patriarchal lies by claiming we're all mad.

    Being laughed at by such idiots is meaningless, apart from it telling you that they're worried, else they wouldn't spend so much effort trying to ridicule us.

  20. Gay magazines don't cater to transmen (or even transwomen for that matter!). So the LGBT thing kinda goes out the window. Gay mags don't even really discuss lesbians. But lesbian spaces, lesbian media outlets, and lesbian films have catered more to transmen than gay men, the ---sex, or anybody else.

    Kinda like the new feminist porn out now that features transguys and no bio guys as some new feminist lesbian alternative radical tattoo type of thing.

    Its like these lesbians don't look at transmen as just regular guys at all. But on some 'our boys...ex-lesbians but still cool with me kinda queer straight boy kinda thing.'

    Totally confusing.

  21. Its not about transphobia. It's about getting rid of the gender binary bullshit! Issues with gender come from binding stereotypes that make an individual feel completely removed their birth sex. You're pretty much forced out. There needs to be alternatives after a diagnosis of GID. There needs to be varying solutions. Trying to stop the gender bullshit in its tracks before someone coughs up thousands of dollars and is still not feeling 100% home in their body. That sucks for people to deal with. I know people like that! And there are people who can't find a solution offered at all. They are severely hurting!

  22. >>It's about getting rid of the gender binary bullshit!<<
    It's not though. I am for getting rid of the gender binary. But being trans isn't squeezing yourself into the binary. It's about being born the wrong sex. There's sex, gender, and gender expression. Sex is your genitalia between your legs, and gender is how you feel. Do you feel like a woman or a man. The gender expression is how you express yourself. In a stereotypical masculine fashion, or feminine or anywhere between. It is completely insane to say that there is no such thing as masculine and feminine. Stereotypes are silly things but they are stereotypes for a reason. I have a feeling there here to stay as long as people worry about bringing down other people instead of worrying about destroying stereotypes. If you're hurting someone a long the way then you're not doing it right.
