Dismantling Identity Politics

In order to continue working towards dismantling the GSJ and Identity Politics it is important not only to maintain basic reason BUT to reinforce that reason as it has clearly been lost along the anti-feminist path Queer Theory has been paving since the early 90's. In effort to work toward this feat,delusory jargon such as transman, transwoman, ftm or mtf etc will no longer be used or tolerated in comments here. Women using names mostly associated with males will also (going forward) have their comments removed along with comments containing incorrect pronouns. When referring to those with the socially developed trans disorder, male or female transitioner, or something similar will be fine.

Whether born female, male or something in between, it is important for us to give truth to nature, regardless of man's corruption of that nature.

  1. Early this morning I was listening to a Latino-based news program on the radio (NPR)- the first story was about a 'transgender activist found dead in a ditch' in Mexico and then they said they were going to discuss the state of 'gay' rights in Mexico. Of course, I don't want anybody to be dead in a ditch, but the repeated equating of gay and trans (the way EVERY news source now says the 'LGBT community' (If we're lucky there are only 4 letters!) even when discussing a plain ol' homosexual issue) is extraordinarly irritating.

  2. So, wait, what if the woman commenting just happens to have a male name? Some girls are named Charlie, some girls are named Toby etc.

  4. Sounds like a good idea - a reframing. I will call it "trans disorder" from now on too on local blogs/sites.

  5. Anon@2:58pm, you might try re-reading the post. And if you are remotely familiar with those who develop this social disorder, you dont often find names that could be applied to both sexes. Names are deliberately chosen to reflect their conformity to the GSJ.

  6. i don't see what names have to do with nature. they are a total social construct, just like this gsj you are always taking about. they vary by culture, some cultures don't even have gendered names at all.

  7. Precisely. Signs of that subscription to the GSJ.

    Hi Ms. Dirt, I've enjoyed getting to know your blog in the past 1 or 2 weeks since since my spouse introduced me to it.
    We both love that you encourage people to embrace their Natural selves. I think it's a pity that the mainstream Industrial Ruling class/colonist culture lacks space in its language and therefor within its culture and collective mind for people Naturally born in between the 2 extremes of the gender continuum. There are plenty of healthy cultures that do embrace the gift of people like this. My own culture does and in fact I find it interesting that we don't use pronouns in our language, things are either Living or Non-living instead of feminine/masculine.

    So anyway, on to my question:
    I just read the above post and this part stood out for some reason:
    "...delusory jargon such as transman, transwoman, ftm or mtf etc will no longer be used or tolerated in comments here. Women using names mostly associated with males will also (going forward) have their comments removed along with comments containing incorrect pronouns." So, here's the thing... your internet nickname and blogger name is "dirtywhiteboi67".
    Is this not the type of name that is mostly associated with males? Even though the word "boi" is spelled with an 'i' instead of a 'y' (I suppose in an effort to distance males while still claiming some type of male identity) the word itself is still derived from boy which means a "young male". I know the use of the word "boi" is well known in Women's spaces. I am just curious what your take is on using the word boi and other words like it, in a space where you are trying to reclaim Woman and Female Identity and reject that of male insidiousness.
    Much Peace and Health to you,

  10. Do you have trans friends, Dirt?

    I've been reading this blog with much interest, such intelligent, diverse posters here. I dunno bout you, but I'm startin' to wonder if all this gender and sex talk is like trying to nail jello to a wall. I've been appreciating everyone's perspectives here and I think they're all important.
