Every week now there seems to be at least a handful of our Trans Trenders in their early teens, and thats merely the few I post from YT. Lord knows how many are identifying as trans or seeking transition that arent making videos! Somewhere between the fall of feminism, the rise of misogyny and the tightening of the GSJ Trans Trending was born. And with the omnipresence of the web to further spread and reinforce all three, a healthy young femaleness is now in serious danger.
Whether succumbing to the demands of hyper femininity and a younger and younger sexualization created by a pedophilic male gaze or plunging head first into the postmodern medicalization that these things can be escaped by disguising themselves via male hormones, female youths are being cultivated into believing their lives and bodies are an either or.
Girls arent fuck objects anymore than they are or will ever be males and it is up to us to make sure that they know this! We have to set the examples, we have to show them to question by questioning ourselves!
When all the answers are vacuously provided sans the hint of any question, we all are in deep shit.

A regular reader sent me a link to this website containing the nine so called "facts" about Trans Sexual and Reproductive Health. How about we briefly examine those so called facts and provide nine TRUTHS instead.
Key facts on sexual and reproductive health for transgender people: (Okay, already a problem. In truth there is no such thing as a
transgendered person. Male and female transitioners are merely males and females who have cosmetically changed their bodies utilizing the male medical machine.
1. Transgender people may have sexual partners who are men, women, or both. A transgender person’s partners or sexual history cannot be assumed from their gender identity or the gender they were assigned at birth. (the SEX of the person in question NEVER changes, regardless of their disorder or the male medical machines interferences in their disorder.
2. Transgender people need preventive health screenings. Standard preventive health screenings are generally recommended for the body parts a patient has regardless of that patient’s gender identity, including breast, cervical, and prostate cancer screenings. (True. Regardless of their disordered thinking, males and females with the trans disorder do need preventive health care. The problem lies in their seeking that prevention. They are being transitioned in order to cure their body dysphoria, only to have that dysphoria return after their trans high wears off and often times return with an increase. Preventive health care forces the trans mind to admit their true nature, ie. sex. Many would rather die, than admit their mistake.
3. Transgender people are at high risk for HIV and other STI infections. According to the CDC, transgender people experience HIV infection at four times the national population level. African-American and Latino/a transgender people are at especially high risk for HIV and other STIs. (I suspect that number may be higher that that, because of how those with this disorder ID themselves. I suspect also that female transitioners are the sex who are predominantly at risk and getting HIV and STDs.)
4. Many transgender
men who have sex with men are at risk for unintended pregnancy as well as STIs. Transgender
men who have sex with men report high rates of unprotected vaginal and
anal intercourse. Some transgender men report being more concerned about
pregnancy than HIV and other STIs. (A high percentage of female lesbian transitioners once on T for a bit, will find themselves being attracted to males. They will then seek out sexual encounters with gay men who are more likely to have sex with them. Many female transitioners have reported that rather than demand her male partner wear a condom, she will have sex without because she fears being taken seriously as a male. Female transitioners also make the mistake that because their periods have ceased, they cannot get pregnant. Not true.
5. Marginalization and abuse increase health risks for transgender people. Transgender people face high rates of social and economic marginalization, as well as high rates of physical and sexual abuse. Transgender and gender nonconforming youth are particularly at risk for sexual abuse and for engaging in commercial or survival sex. (Not true. Male transitioners usually transition after they have established a career. With their male privilege firmly intact, few who transition lose their careers. Younger male transitioners with their male privilege firmly intact continue utilizing their male privilege to advance themselves in their chosen fields. The only male transitioners who suffer in this area are the tiny percent of homosexual males who transition, minorities much more than whites. Already on the outskirts of acceptable white society, these men will turn to prostitution to earn money for illegal hormones and monies for cosmetic surgeries in order to attain some version of patriarchy's hyper femininity.
6. Transgender people are often reluctant to seek sexual and reproductive health care. One in three transgender people, and 48% of transgender men, have delayed or avoided preventive health care such as pelvic exams or STI screening out of fear of discrimination or disrespect. One survey reported that half of transgender men did not receive annual pelvic exams. Reasons included discomfort with the physical exam due to gender issues (40%), lack of money or insurance (13%), lack of a medical provider they were comfortable with (13%), and thinking they did not need pelvic exams (7%). Another survey found that transgender teens, including those at risk for unintended pregnancy, were reluctant to go to a family planning clinic. (See number 2)
7. Transgender people lack access to relevant health information. Sexual health education for youth and adults rarely addresses transgender people’s bodies and identities. For example, transgender
men who have
sex with men report a lack of adequate information about their sexual
health at rates as high as 93.8%. (True. Because health care providers are as bound and gagged by the very same Gender Straight Jacket that creates the trans disorder in the first place!)
8. Providers often lack appropriate clinical knowledge. While treating transgender patients does not require special expertise, providers often lack basic knowledge about transgender people and their health needs. In a nationwide survey, 50% of transgender people reported having to teach a health care provider about providing appropriate care. (See number 7)
9. Many providers still turn transgender patients away. In national surveys, 19% to 27% of transgender people report being turned away by health care providers who refused to provide care for them. Outright refusals of care occur across all types of providers, including providers of sexual and reproductive health care. (True to a point. Many male and female transitioners arent upfront with their true sex to health care providers, again because of their MENTAL disorder. Rather than face who they truly are, they try to deceive (like they deceive themselves) health care providers which in turn causes various issues with health care services. Some however will be turned away in the same way many gays and lesbians are refused basic care, usually in rural areas and usually because they are perceived as gay or lesbian.

This post is written by a reader who needs our help. I'll let her post speak for itself and leave you with a link on how best to help.
First of all, Margaret Sanger, the courageous founder of Planned Parenthood where this workshop in question is being held wasn’t “cis” anything. She wasn’t gender queer nor was she a transwoman. Margaret Sanger was female. Sorry, I forgot to put the “cis” in front of woman. Even though there is no reference in any historical document to her being “cis” or queer, I don’t want to upset “queer feminists” or gender queer individuals. As to Margaret Sanger, I’m sure old Margaret must be rolling over in her grave by now. Contrary to what gender queer “feminists” believe, brave women were working tirelessly to improve the lives of women long before “queer feminists” came along.
Gender queers weren’t on the front lines in the battle to provide reproductive health care to women. It was the Suffragettes who fought tenaciously for women’s suffrage. Queers had nothing to do with it. Most of the major women’s rights legislation was enacted long before gender queer became all the rage in the 1990s. Queer theory emerged during a reactionary period in history in which there were actual attacks on civil and women’s rights. Starting with Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher, a rapacious form of capitalism was unleashed.
There was a relentless acceleration of money and power to the wealthy few. During this time, attacking feminists became something of a sport or rite of passage for conservatives. I certainly don’t see “queer feminism” as an extension of feminism. Rather, gender queer became all the rage during a period in time in which feminism was waning. In reality, I can’t think of anything of significance that gender queers have done for women. As to women’s rights, gender queer is late to the table and came empty handed. Indeed, most “queer feminists” have no idea who Margaret Sanger was. It’s so sad to see gender queers gleefully trample on the bones and graves of women like Margaret Sanger.
Now, let’s discuss the term “cotton ceiling” which, in my opinion, is an offensive sexist term. What is the origin of this term and where did it come from? As I understand it, this offensive term or so-called theory was first coined by trans porn star and activist Drew DeVeaux. Is this correct? Since this website is about “queer feminism”, and “queer feminists” are so concerned about women, what has Drew Deveaux ever done for women? Sorry, I don’t see how pornography improves the lives of women. By the way, it’s always amazing how close “queer feminism” is to pornography. Let’s examine the elaborate theory of “cotton ceiling” proposed by this esteemed trans porn star.
While the term “glass ceiling” refers to employment discrimination and the historical inability of women to break through to higher levels of power and authority in business, government, and politics, the term “cotton ceiling” refers to women’s cotton panties, and sexual access to women, especially lesbian females. The “glass ceiling” affects all women everywhere, and feminists have been fighting it for over half a century. The “cotton ceiling” is a recent, freshly minted gender queer, trans term used to describe trans men’s access, or lack of access, to women’s under panties. Transwomen and gender queer folks have totally co-opted an old feminist term meant to indicate employment discrimination and twisted and distorted its historic meaning as a way to shame, intimidate, and coerce lesbians into having sex with gender queer transwomen.
Most lesbians recognize male transgender individuals and often support transgender rights, but aren’t sexually attracted to MTF transsexuals or transwomen. Male transgender individuals can only go so far with many lesbians. Thus, the need to break the barriers to the “cotton ceiling”, or lesbian panties. The term “cotton ceiling” definitely implies sexual access, or lack thereof. It certainly means access to females. After all, historically, haven’t all men whether with an intact penises or not demanded sexual access to women’s bodies? Indeed, I can’t recall a time in history when this wasn’t true.
How many times have lesbians been told that if they just tried dick, they would like it? Am I allowed to say dick in this blog? Indeed, lesbians are told this in innumerable ways, some subtle and some not so subtle. Lesbians have been told what they should and should not desire all their lives. Now, it’s implied that lesbians are “transphobic” if they don’t feel the desire to sleep with MTF transsexuals. This is nothing but utter lesbianphobia no matter how it’s dressed up. Putting it in a pretty little package and attaching some queer speak nonsense words and phrases to it won’t change anything. I’m a lesbian and I love women’s souls, bodies, and spirits. Unlike trans porn stars, I don’t sexually objectify women.
I simply love women deeply. Indeed, it’s almost spiritual like any intense sexual or human connection. Perhaps this is why gender queer folks don’t understand lesbians, and why lesbians don’t understand gender queer. I feel an emotional connection to women. The term “cotton ceiling” is sexist and lesbianphobic pure and simple. In the gender queer and trans community, there is an immense and terrifying loathing of lesbians. Lesbians have the audacity to love women. I mean actually love women. In a world where trans porn stars coin lesbianphobic bazaar terms like “cotton ceiling”, this is truly a revolutionary act.
