In the three plus years I have been documenting this horrific misogynistic trend among our young (primarily)  lesbian women, there has been a distinctive change. Age. This social disease when I began posting about it, affected mostly women in their mid to late 20's. As time went on, this changed to their affecting more women in their late teens and early twenties. Today, clearly we are seeing more and more young teen girls being affected. I think it is safe to tragically assume that as this anti feminist/lesbian backlash continues and if the soon to be next version of the DSM (5) goes forward with including transitioning children, we're going to be seeing grade school and perhaps even younger girls here.

  1. Why can't I ask which username is the one in red? There's nothing wrong with that question.

  2. The one with the glasses in the middle looked so sad. I could only watch one of these. The empathy in me is there even for the lesbiphobic, misogynistic ones.

    This was a good piece if you didn't see it.

  3. These girls are being coached on how to reply to anyone who doesn't think they're trans: you don't know me, I'm really a boy. I think they're getting this stuff from their gender therapists, who must have all read the same approved books. I can prove right now that the girl in the middle didn't always think of herself as a boy. Her hair is very long. If she had always felt like a boy, that wouldn't have happened. So her "transness" is something new that she picked up from something in her environment, but she thinks it's the story of her life. (Brainwashing that rewrites history.)

  5. "I can prove right now that the girl in the middle didn't always think of herself as a boy. Her hair is very long. If she had always felt like a boy, that wouldn't have happened.

    Anon, I agree that 'thinking of yourself as a boy' is the result of brainwashing but I disagree that you can work out when the brainwashing began based on appearance. In my teens I put on hyper-femininity to try and convince myself I was a 'real girl.' Of course it didn't work - the gender straight jacket is the problem, not the cure. But denying some people go down this road is just going to get them more indignant that 'nobody knows what its like.'

  6. I noticed that you listed three fourteen year old girls and three sixteen year old girls. I seriously doubt that any fourteen year old girl knows what she wants. She sees something on t.v., or watches Chaz Bono on "Dancing With the Stars", or reads one of the many trans men's blogs, and now this fourteen year old girl is convinced that she too is transgender. Moreover, since we still live in a very homophobic and lesbian phobic society, having a transgender daughter that can be treated or fixed through "transition" is a easy and comfortable way for some parents to deal with their internalized homophobia.

    Thanks for the excellent article from the Guardian. It's so rare to find any article in any type of mainstream media that speaks to the intense and deep seated lesbian phobic attitudes and stereotypes that still exist today.

    Real, actual flesh and blood lesbians are often portrayed as man-hating ugly dykes. These are the women who don't tow the traditional feminine gender line. Then, there are porn images of the male fantasies of lesbian "girl on girl action". Most of these women don't identify as lesbian once the cameras are off. So, actual lesbians are often seen as repulsive and even grotesque. The only real beautiful lesbians are some male fantasy of how women should appear and act.

    The Guardian article states,

    "Lesbians the way men like them? In the BBC3 drama series Lip Service, they're all skinny, achingly trendy and lashed with lipstick."

    Most high school girls would rather be called anything than a lez or dyke. The stereotypes and the multitude of subtle and not so subtle images of lesbians certainly is felt and experienced by young women. When I was in high school, the other girls would call me "lez". The way that this word "lez" was hissed in such a spiteful and hateway way cut deep into my soul. It felt like a knife in my chest.

    I certainly believe that this new found interest in transgender is one way for many people to feel comfortable with having to face the possibility of having a "lez" or dyke daughter.

    Again, thanks for this rare article. When articles like this one do come around, it truly is a special and unique occurance. I saved it on my computer.

  7. I want to throw up just thinking about the downward shift in age in this trend. I've been watching this scene for 10+ years and have noticed it too. I am a mom of daughters and it upsets me so much. I am terrified of what is coming with the DSM 5 too. The thought of little girls getting sucked into this horrible trend...I really want to throw up. Our culture's new, sick version of FGM. :(

    The effing "gender therapists" don't hesitate to get in bed with conservative Christians, even as they claim to be so open minded. Check it out:

  8. "culture's new, sick version of FGM."

    Yes, thank you. I too had thought this but I wasnt sure to say. I do see so many that are white or light. Are the numbers the same for lesbians of color? And what about outside of the west?

  10. its all a FAD! a TREND! monkey see monkey do mentality! by the time most these confused little GIRLS are 21, breastless & sporting a full face of hair theyll be trying to find God or a way to reverse their mistake. this should not even be legal until the age of 25. 21 at the least. acceptance by society should not be such a priority to the underdeveloped minds of children.

  11. Totally agree, This trend is out of control. These girls are all jumping on this bandwagon doing terrible things to their bodies, claiming they are trans. Just because they have identity issues or body dysphoria Does Not Equal Trans!! I was a confused teenage girl as well because I did not fit into the stereotypical female role. I am glad this trend wasn't prevalant when I was a teen, otherwise I could be walking around marred and deformed and probably more confused than ever!

  12. I feel so sad seeing these young girls failing to accept themselves and moving towards surgery and hormones that will mutiliate their body.
