  2. Yes, you can learn a lot (and see how seemingly infinitely vast their numbers are) from the comments on transition-documenters' videos.

  3. I close my eyes and try to imagine what a different world this would be, if every one of these videos was from a healthy, angry, educated young woman, talking about how to dismantle the patriarchy, how to get corporations to stop dumping toxic chemicals into the products we use, ending the lesbian breast cancer epidemic, and teaching each other how to defend ourselves physically and emotionally against the constant rape of this sick society. Imagine. Legions of smart, angry young women, standing up for each other and themselves.

    Instead?

    Lemmings of destruction. All helping each other jump. Thumbs up, ladies! "Like!"

    I try to imagine what this blog would be like if Dirt actually bothered looking for those kinds of videos instead of this bullshit.

  8. 5th vid:

    "Yo I'm Adriana. I'm 13 and I like girls :D I'm very different. I consider myself as a 13 year old male instead of female. It's comfortable for me. OH and I will love you FOREVER if you call me by Christian or Chris"

    Has NO ONE ever told her that it is okay to like girls, and not want to do girly and pretty, and STILL be female? Obviously not, she has a binder and thinks she is a 13 year old boy.

    And do you see the trans crowd jumping in to perhaps suggest that she might just be a baby butch?

    Nope, because she SAYS she is a boy, so end of story. And of course, the trans crowd doesn't like loosing converts..............................

  9. just so you know u posted MY picture and MY youtube channel and wrote a hate speech... and you know what thats dsicrimination.. you can discriminate against us all you want and say rude stuff and be closed minded but you have no right to post my picture or my youtube channel... and you know what I can do with that? I can report you to this site because you violated the terms and agreements... you can't post this stuff its violates my privacy and its dciscrimination. idk who you think you are to post my stuff on your page but your page is about to be deleted anyways because I just sent a letter to this site about how you wrote hate speeches against me and my fellow brothers and how you violated their terms and agreements.

  10. "but you have no right to post my picture or my youtube channel......... you can't post this stuff its violates my privacy "

    O dear, more youngsters discover the reality that nothing is private in cyberspace unless you make it so.

    What Google terms and conditions actually say as regards privacy:
    "Also, please bear in mind that in most cases, information that is already available elsewhere on the Internet or in public records is not considered to be private or confidential under our policies."

    So, you put it on YouTube, it's no longer private or confidential.

    "..how you wrote hate speeches..." Saying we think you're making a mistake ISN'T the same as hate speech. Discussing why so many young women are saying they are trans ISN'T hate speech, nor is discussion of the wider political landscape that is causing this. Nor is calling them 'women'......

    According to Google T&C on content, hate speech is:
    "By this, we mean content that promotes hate or violence towards groups based on race, ethnicity, religion, disability, gender, age, veteran status or sexual orientation/gender identity. For example, don't write a blog saying that members of Race X are criminals or advocating violence against followers of Religion Y."

    Disagreement is not hate, and unlike some trans blogs, no one here is suggesting attacks with baseball bats.

    Mind you, when you're a teenager daring to comment adversely on ANYTHING a teenager does or decides probably counts as hate speech, it did when I was that age...................

    So, let's just say I think this last post is probably genuine, given the atrocious spelling and grammar..............

  11. "Yo I'm Adriana. I'm 13 and I like girls :D I'm very different. I consider myself as a 13 year old male instead of female. It's comfortable for me...."

    Before anyone jumps up and down on me, I commented on this because it struck a chord with me. I can remember when I considered myself 'very different'. I can remember what it was like to be a girl and like girls. And I can also remember how disgusted I was at the thought of being a lesbian ('cos they were NASTY!). If someone had said to me at the time -- there's an explanation for your dilemma, you're really a boy -- I might have jumped at that. Because then it wouldn't be my FAULT, it would just be NORMAL that I liked girls since I was a normal boy. It would be NORMAL that I was good at physics and maths, and liked playing football and cricket, because those were all things that NORMAL boys did. It would be okay that I didn't like make-up and frilly dresses and hair-styles, because NORMAL boys hated all that nonsense.

    Exellent! I could be NORMAL.........

    Except that trans route to normality comes at a cost that is too high.

    P.S. Why didn't I take that route? Firstly, trans wasn't talked about except as regards M2T. And secondly, as a little proto-feminist, I didn't like boys that much mainly because of the way they treated girls, and all the damn advantages they got just because they were a boy. Hence seeking to 'become' one of them would have indicated a lack of ambition, according to my early self!

  12. One thing that is puzzling me is this supposed natural transitioning thing. Yeah, if you eat better and work out with weights, you can loose fat and gain muscle, and you'll feel less girly if you were never told that girls can be muscular and strong and confident! But seems to me to just be conning yourself into thinking the effects are the same as T!

    You're not transitioning, you're just discovering what the female body can actually DO if you give it hard work to do!

    AMEN. this is exactly how I felt throughout my teens (I'm 23 now) and even to this day I've had self-loathing bubble up, but I'm finally starting to feel less shame for being a butch lesbian.

    Luckily I'd never wanted to be male, or even considered male imitation an option, but it did mean that I had absolutely no love life whatsoever, but plenty of one sided, repressed crushes on girls ..

    when I see these images and videos, these young people so desperate to be called anything except lesbian, and subjecting their minds and bodies to experimental treatments and destructive bullshit, it tears me to pieces

    I desperately want to find a way to save these girls and women

    The female population is shrinking and dying, and being poisoned with T and crushed by binders.

  14. "but it did mean that I had absolutely no love life whatsoever, but plenty of one sided, repressed crushes on girls .. "

    Yes!

    I think another problem is that when you do come out, you're usually in a minority -- the one of two out lesbians at my (all women)Oxford college (plus several undercover ones), then at work (physics grad school), not just the only lesbian, but the only woman student. It means you have to forge your own path, even when you do find other dykes to support you out of work. But think about the promise that transition seems to offer -- you could blend in, be just one of the boys, if you can pull it off.

    As I said before, you could be NORMAL, not having to fight the whole time. I'm not saying that is true for trans people, but I think some of these young women hope that that is what they could do.

    Because lets face it, trying to do it on your own without a strong womens movement behind you is hard, and can seem impossible at times.
