I can only wonder with great sadness and far too many tears, how many female minds and bodies will have been lost before real help is put into place and this drugging and butchering of the healthy ceases. I fear the number will be greater than that of similar females who in the middle of the last century and for similar reasons were brutalized with the male medical machines lobotomy "cure".

May feminism rise like the Phoenix and save.

  1. It saddens me to see girls my age and younger (I'm 18) transitioning to trans. I can't see there being a lot of butches around when I'm in my 20s and 30s if they all feel compelled by the medical machine to do this...

    So, to all the F2Ts Dirt has shown here who used to identify as lesbian/bisexual:

    I am a gold star lesbian. I do not buy into 'queer' theory or gender identity politics. I will not sleep with anyone who takes T, cuts off their breasts and/or identifies as male, regardless of how they were assigned at birth. I've had F2Ts get offended at me when I tell them this. I would rather be celibate (and I'm not) than sleep with or date a woman who mutilates herself.

    Learn to love yourself and give up the identity politics for what they are: a bad joke.

  3. "who would want to date someone who disrespects them? "

    why would a lesbian want to date a female who claims she is a man anyway?

  4. @baddyke....your argument is invalid, yet you confirm my statement. i was talking about respect. would you date someone who didnt respect you? who denied that you are who you feel/believe/know/etc yourself to be? not all transguys are out there to steal your precious little lesbians. im not claiming to be a man. im trans. im not disillusioned into thinking i will magically grow a real life working penis, or that after top surgery my chest will look like david beckhams. or that the 27 years i spent on this earth living as a woman dont effect who i am today. im not denying any part of myself or my history. im just saying i dont date people who are disrespectful to myself as another human being. Just as you say lesbians dont want to date transmen (i refuse to jump on your bandwagon and use female pronouns). many transmen are not at ALL interested in lesbians.

    Let it go.. Walk away from this. Without the transgendered community this blog would be nothing. Our security and strength is not governed by a handful of hateful people.

    We are not defined by them..

    Walk away.. Let it go.. Spend this much energy creating a strong community with those who value us. These people do not define you!! They cannot understand our walk anymore than the straight community can understand theirs.

  6. " who denied that you are who you feel/believe/know/etc yourself to be?"

    I don't need others to join me in my delusion, or think it is disrespectful if they don't.

    Just because you feel you're male doesn't make you male, simple as that.

    Why should I respect someone who thinks they have to mutilate their body to really be themselves? I'll pity you, but respect that choice? No, can't do that. I'll respect you as a damaged female human being, but as a man? No, because you're not, just deluded.

  7. "We are not defined by them.."

    So why do you all get so pissed when we use the wrong pronouns then?

    " Without the transgendered community this blog would be nothing." without women mistakenly transitioning, we wouldn't have to have this debate, and could concentrate on some other aspects of feminism. Don't think that radical feminsts only exist to give trans folk a hard time.........

  8. I am trans and I refuse to date or sleep with lesbians. I have offended lesbians when I tell them I would never be more than just friends with them. I don't meet them at gay bars because I don't attend those. I don't club or anything of that sort. I meet them at lgbt organizations so I am allowed to be there. I don't mind being friends with lesbians but nothing more. I love women but I think it would be weird to date a lesbian.

  9. @anon 6:48. im not up in arms. i read this blog with regularity because it blows my mind. this is the first comment i have ever made to all of the outlandishness that this blog spews. no need to tell me to let it go...im all good...ive spent very little energy on this. but thanks

    @baddyke im not asking anyone to join in my *delusion* as you call it...if you dont see me for me then you dont. simple as that...no one would waste thier time with anyone they didnt see and respect for who they were... im not asking you to date me, so i could care less if you respect me or not. If random people in this life look at me and see a transguy, a female or a male i could care less, i dont live my life for them or thier opinions of me, but when it comes to relationships/dating/friendships respect is a must...which was my whole point.... im not here to argue with you about your beliefs, everyone is entitled to them. but i dont need your pity, nor do i want it. i also never claimed to be a man, im trans and i wouldnt change it if i could.... but you obviously failed to read my entire comment

  10. Dirt, do you speak German? I'm really curious now because if you don't speak German how could you possibly know what is being said in some of these videos?

  11. Anon @ 2.43pm if you 'guys' weren't interested in dating me than why have I been asked out by several of you? You've never seen me in real life... you wouldn't know.

    I once had a transman complain to me and ask me why 'before I transitioned the girls loved me, now they think I'm just another man' once he had transitioned- well, uhh, hello. You're not a lesbian anymore, sweetheart! And most straight girls don't want a man without a real penis... So you're left with the bi/pansexuals now?

    @BadDyke most of us don't. Even amongst the lesbians my age, most of us don't want to date transmen and don't understand why some of them still feel entitled to womens' spaces once they've transitioned. You are right when you say without women mistakenly transitioning, we wouldn't have to have this debate. Trans people tend to make everything about them at the expense of butch women and others, it's pathetic really.

  12. "im not here to argue with you about your beliefs, everyone is entitled to them. "

    Except it's exactly that sort of liberal open-mindedness which is part of the problem! Which may seem a shocking thing to say, but yes, everyone is entitled to their opinion (lets face everyone just has one anyway), but then sometimes we do need to argue AGAINST certain opinions when we think they are doing harm. Hence I can't just see trans as -- it's just about my body, no one elses business, when that mindset and the beliefs that we get on here from the trans crowd (like the oft-repeated brain sex stuff) are obviously part of the trend amongst former lesbians, who are now transitioning.

    Some on here have claimed that there is no effect, but I disagree. So, yes, I AM here to argue with people about their beliefs.

  13. "bell we arent interested in dating you anyway get over yourself."

    Which forgets that many of the lesbians on here, I'm sure, have been on the gay scene, have come across trans people who perhaps don't understand why lesbians liked then before, but don't go for them now. We've seen on an earlier post how lesbians in a relationship with someone before transition have been encouraged to stay with them afterwards (i.e., in effect they are supposed to transition from being homo to hetero).

    And I bet that many of us here have also seen things from the other angle, have seen M2T claiming to be lesbians invading lesbian only spaces and getting all ANNOYED when none of the lesbians want to date them, or accuse us of being transphobic because we don't want to date a biological male, especially not one who still has a dick.

    So, don't claim it doesn't happen, because I've been there.

    I disagree with this; I think most people are capable of understanding most situations outside of their own. I've never been fond of insular 'communities' anyway, especially those built on shared troubles.

  15. @baddyke ""We are not defined by them.."

    So why do you all get so pissed when we use the wrong pronouns then?" i didnt say that first part...but i dont get pissed of. i wont join you in using them just as you wont join me in not using them.....but ive been called all kinds of things/pronouns/insults and i dont give a hoot. and yay for you for standing up for what you believe in.

    @bell u may be an attractive person maybe thats why you may get hit on by anyone trans or not....im NOT hitting on you and many transmen wont.... here are 2 very simple reasons 1 you are a child (compared to me), and 2 you are a lesbian. I wouldnt expect lesbians to be interested in me if they are attracted to women.

    Throwing in an agist line calling me a child or practically one due to my age doesn't disqualify my arguments. I have done modelling and am a law student so I am considered a 'catch' by many in my local scene.

    At least you recognize what many transfolk won't: lesbians like women. Not men. And trans don't want to be women, and alter their bodies so as to develop some characteristics our society associates with real men.

  18. i think women who like ftm's sexually are rare- increasingly it seems ftm's are accepting that their sexual future is most likely with real men or other unreal men

  19. @ Bell i was merely pointing out your age as one factor in why i would not consider dating you (in 10 years you will look at 18 year olds the same way)....im sure you are a very wonderful *catch*, which also may be why you do get hit on by transmen, if you are such a catch you shouldnt be surprised by getting hit on...i have many lesbian *femme and butch alike* friends who get hit on by both trans and non-trans men they simply say they are not interested...pretty simple...

    "At least you recognize what many transfolk won't: lesbians like women. Not men. And trans don't want to be women, and alter their bodies so as to develop some characteristics our society associates with real men."
    That being said, i have dated lesbians since transition, but its very situational. I also know that i do have a vagina, and will always have a vagina, that i was socialized female and that my 26+ years on this earth living as such has taught me things that non transmen never learned. I Know That dating will be harder for me because as you said lesbians like women, and straight girls like *real mean with real penises* neither of which category i fall under. all i can say is there people out there who will see me for the person that i am and love me regardless.

  20. @baddyke "So, don't claim it doesn't happen, because I've been there."

    not claiming that at all, yet you seem to forget that it also DOESNT happen in every case. yes i have dated lesbians since transitioning, but i dont seek out or invade lesbian/woman only spaces. i dont expect/demand lesbians to want to date me, in fact i am NEVER the one to ask the lesbian out..if someone is flying thier lesbian flag i dont even attempt it even if they are attractive to me.

    That's funny because my fiancee' was married to her husband for 17 years until she met and fell in love with me. It's been over 3 years for us now.
