The Trans Community and Death Threats to Feminist Bloggers

This death wish was received yesterday afternoon from (I'll assume) a trans female calling herself "mitch".

This misdirected hatred leveled at feminist and radfem bloggers has become all too familiar and far too commonplace. The frequency with which threats of violence, rape and death to fem/radfem bloggers by the Trans community has reached such a fever pitch that it is only a matter of time before one of us is brutalized or worse, murdered.

Academia's fascistic politically correct  reach had for a time protected their darling queer Trojan, the Trans community, by frightening academic feminists and branding feminist critical analysis of transgenderism as "transphobic". Enter the feminist/radfem blogger------->

Feminist and Radfem bloggers could not be silenced with threats of academic career repercussions, silencing our feminist voices would not be so easy. Between free speech, the world wide web at our finger tips and the blogosphere our feminist grassroots playground, the Trans Politic has had to employ violent tactics as a means of cutting off our voices.

Silencing women with violence and threats of violence is perhaps the core HIStorical strategy of patriarchy. Given this is the prime tactical maneuver employed by the Trans community to strangle the voices of fem/radfem bloggers, lends transparency as to who exactly is running the Trans Politic machine and its many cogs and wheels. Men! Born and raised male privileged men. Trans females like "mitch" are merely bystanders as her comment indicates. She would like to see someone (a man) kill me, while she looks on like a stereotypical passive female. Even within the Trans community, it is the real men running the show while the real women stand two steps behind like proper ladies.

I suspect when (when, not if) a fem/radfem blogger does get hurt or killed by a member of the Trans community, it will in all likelihood be by a trans female. Trans females have a great more to prove (their purchased manhood) than trans men, who were born with theirs. And because leopards do not really change their spots, women provide free labor while men sit on their duffs and reap the benefits.

There has been a great deal of twittering and sharing on FB regarding the multitudinous variables in the Violence Against Women, but one variable I haven't seen mentioned is the threats and death threats to fem/radfem bloggers. I know many of those tweets and shares are from us and to us bloggers, but don't forget to include us in the equation! We are the new face of feminism! And we will be the change makers of our generation! But we must diligently be aware, be cautious, be alert, for we could easily become a Sophie Scholl, a Rosa Luxemburg, or an Anna Politkovskaya.

  1. Very typical of trans to threaten violence to silence, radical feminist, lesbian, women and Intersex people. It's so Male like of them to silence anyone who is critical of them.

  2. The truth can never be silenced forever. This is what they are so terrified of.

    I'm not going anywhere, and if something happens to dirt, either I or someone else will gladly take her place. Dirt, I have your back, and if there is anything I can do for you, I will.

  3. There is a pattern of threats that go back several years. These are threats directed towards butch lesbians, so called rad fems, or radical feminists, and any woman who dares to say anything that the transgender community doesn't want to hear.

    Threats "like YOU SHOULD BE SHOT FUCKING DEAD... AND I HOPE I'M THERE WHEN IT'S DONE." is the latest death threat directed towards a woman who identifies as lesbian.

    ".....You are such a weak little old hag of a bitch. Get raped by a bunch of niggers you old crow."
    "You made this story up you fucking ugly OVER-THE-HILL sagging tits, fat ass ugly repulsive CUNT. You're just jealous that you're OLD AS HELL and can NEVER EVER transition successfully the way us young dudes do! We are the men you can never, ever be. Medical science, nanotechnology and genetic engineering is advancing in ways your tiny female, estrogen-dominant gossipy female brain can NEVER imagine. CUNT. And being 25 I will reap the benefits and you will just be a corpse. You're not even masculine, this shit you're doing here is totally female...gossipy manipulative psychological warfare. Why don't you take your fat, over-sized, child-bearing hips sagging cottage cheese ass back in the kitchen and cook your disgusting wrinkled, obese crew-cut trainwreck you call a "girlfriend" another Swanson dinner you useless OLD HAG. KNOW YOUR PLACE and stop treading on us. Stupid useless cunt. No wonder there is so much misogyny...it's because of bitches like you. Suck a fat one and get AIDS".

    "Remember “gaynotqueer” on tumblr? You know why “he” stopped posting? Pretty much the same reason you will. He was not the first. When I used to post as “Plastic Girl” on gendertrender, I found out his dox, and passed them to some cane-swinging urban transwomen in “his” neighborhood. We know what gay bars “he” went to. This is real life baby, dont write checks your ass cannot cash.

    EPIC ass-whipping coming your way Nicky. You are sooooo screwed. Shall I meet you at dunkin donuts? I’ll just watch your twitter and see where you are. This is going to be fun. It’s been a long time in coming. BTW I have it on good authority Cathy Brennan will have a terrible accident at this year’s dyke march. THAT”S been a long time coming to. I want your ipod as a trophy. I will get it. See you soon, sweetumz!

    DIAF. All radical feminists will pay a terrible price. 2013 is going to be apocalyptic. We are so done with words. “Making a list, checking it twice, bringing some comeuppance wont that be nice? Planting radfems deep in the ground”.

    If I threaten to eviserate Gallus Mag, and she presses charges, under USA law I have the right to face my accuser. Thus, I will know her identity. Autumn Sandeen is offering $10k for that info.

    This year we are taking Michfest down. 2013 is the year of transequality. Suck it, Brennan! See you at the dyke march.

    I want you all to realize, I’m; the ultimate Libertarian.If you are cool with me, I’m cool with you. IF NOT, LEAVE ME and MINE alone, or I will harm you. Violence is always an option, and I have studied to dispense violence all my life.

    We trans womyn have to battle for our very right to exist and transition against hordes of Fascist JaniceRaymondiod lesbian bulldyke 2nd wave radfems. We do NOT appreciate self-loathing little boyz taking up for the trans-exterminationist diesel dyke crowd. If you come to terms with taking a man as your ex partner, you too can avoid chasing nasty cis-woman coochie and free yourself from cis-woman mind-fuckkery!

  4. I'm a transitioner, what you call a trans female (which is accurate, given my chromosomes and biology, which cannot be changed). I come to your blog because I am interested in your views and while I don't agree with everything you say, I certainly support and defend your right to say what you do.

    I personally find it disturbing that other people attack you and make such awful threats. I'm sorry that people are so damned nasty to you for simply exercising your right to think critically and analyse the world around you. Even if I don't agree, I do enjoy reading what you write and turning it over in my head, and your blog has given me and the partner a lot of interesting conversations about gender, sex and life in general.

    To all my fellow transitioners who happen across this comment: Leave Dirt alone. She isn't enciting violence against you, she isn't hurting you, and she isn't screaming that we all need to be round up and killed. She has the right to express herself and her views. The only thing I see here is that she promotes questioning the world around us in regards to gender roles, and the worst thing she says about us is that we are misguided. The only threats of violence I have seen have come from a community that I am a part of (by virtue of simplying transitioning) and it I find it pretty damn sad. If you don't like what Dirt has to say, keep on going. Threatening death, rape and everything else is never right. If you want a dialogue, try talking like adults instead of screaming the second anyone says anything that you don't like.

    To Dirt: Thanks for having this blog open to views, despite all the crap you get. I enjoy reading your thoughts. Stay safe.

  5. [“How many sexually abused ftM women become pedophiles (or exhibit pedophilic behavior) from the effect of testosterone? How often has the "trans" community covered up and hidden these trans pedophiles from the rest of us?” ~Dirt

    “Which is precisely why it is so difficult to obtain any serious statistical truths regarding matters such as ftM pedophilia and the numbers of ftM pedophiles.”~Dirt

    “Does then the development of a transmale identity coupled with an internal misogyny, and a history of rape vulnerability, compel consciously or unconsciously, thousands of transmen to utilize rape or the threat of rape in helping uphold male control, by helping to maintain rape culture? Thus insuring their membership into the boys club? Is rape or the threat of rape the ultimate password into REAL manhood for transmen?  “ ~Dirt

    “In this new fangled post pro drug and mutilate yourself into a monstrosity world, potent harmful drugs such as "T" which physically alter the structure of the brain thereby mind alter, leave the door wide open for ftM women who have been sexually abused as little girls to extend their abuse, like the men they convince themselves they want to be, onto other children.” ~ Dirt ]

    Hi fellow "transitioner",
    I'm glad you enjoy Dirt's blog. You are absolutely wrong when you claim that all Dirt suggests is that we are misguided. Perhaps you were misguided and visit Dirt's blog as a form of self-flagellation. There's no end to the ways a human can be fucked-up, so have at it. I, however, am not fucked up. Or misguided. I am acutely aware of the hatred towards homosexuals displayed by most people. Tactics used by these assholes include insisting that all, most, or a statistically larger amount of gay men are pedophiles than straight men. While there seem to be a large amount of reported cases amongst organizations like the Catholic Church and the Boy Scouts, we can easily find evidence that "straight" sexual abuse of girls far outnumbers gay instances of sexual abuse. Hateful individuals and groups try to manipulate other people's ideas about homosexuals with lies. Do you understand this concept? Do you understand that there is little to NO evidence of ftm pedophilia and that such accusations are extremely harmful and hurtful? Do you understand what justice means? Does anyone here have a conscience or any accountability? How bout a solid grasp of how tactics of hatred and distrust of sexual minorities are fostered by the mainstream and then adopted and perpetuated *by* the minorities onto people lower on the totem pole?
    Whatever your reason is for being here, I can hardly believe that you find it enjoyable or a suitable use of your personal time. Maybe you hate yourself. Maybe you regret transitioning. If you are thinking about de-transitioning, you have my full support. But don't kid yourself about what Dirt is actually saying or thinking. Dirt classically makes these horrible accusations and then acts the oppressed victim when people get mad. I can forgive her her hatred, but I can never forgive a person for such disgusting moral cowardice.

  6. There was a case where a Femme moved in with an FTM in Texas, both were on Butch/Femme.com years ago, and the FTM killed the Femme woman....other Dykes on Butch/Femme.com(both Femmes and Butches) tried to expose this, since they had met there, and B/F.com shut them down real quick and swept the whole thing under the rug....and basically silenced them and what happened. So a bunch of us got off of B/F.com and some Femmes I knew(very radical feminist DYKE/Lesbian Femmes) were very, very upset at what happened and wanted to expose B/F.com for hiding the whole thing, and silencing everybody around the incident and what happens when you introduce those hormones into a FEMALE body, and them mimicking the worst, most sexist and obviously most violent of male behaviors. Testosterone brings out aggressive behaviors there is no doubt about it. It is one reason I have absolutely NO interest in hanging around FTM's in any capacity.

    And I've heard of all too many Lesbians and Radical Feminists being silenced, verbally attacked and trashed online, and their sites stolen from them, crashed or taken over, or viruses put on their computers/networks to bring them down. I have experienced my share REALTIME, not just online. And the Michfest women have put up with it nearly FOREVER.

    The time to STOP THEM IS NOW!
    We are rising again!

    First of all, I don't know if these quotes attributed to dirt are actually from her. I noticed that this individual didn't actually cite any sources. Overall, I can't see how these statements, if they can be connected to the woman named dirt, are as disturbing as the threats of physical violence coming from the transgender community.

    As to "T", there could be something about the use of "T" and aggression. Does "T" increase aggression? For people unfamiliar with "T", "T" stands for testosterone that female trans or FTM inject. There have been some studies that says it can. This is a very good question. If we mix "T" with a lot of raw misogyny, what do we get. The first person I think of is Kael T Block. I'm NOT saying that all trans females are prone to aggression, but when dirt or anyone else brings up subjects such as "T" and aggression, or internalized misogyny/sexist culture coupled with "T", trans females act as if it's a direct threat to them and wail to high heaven "transphobia", or say dirt needs to be fucking shot, die in a fire, or whatever.

    Google "Kael T. Block" and "Ira T. Gray". There have been numerous complaints surrounding both these trans females having serious issues with the idea of boundaries. From everything that I've read, the only difference between a sexist male who can't take no for an answer and Kael T. Block is that Kael was born a female, and with the use of "T" and surgery takes on the outward physical appearance of a male.

    If people take the time to read what some women have written about Kael T. Block, Kael definitely enjoys being in control and exerting power. I wish someone would explain to me how Kael who identifies as male and who gets off on exerting control over women is any different than a biological male who enjoys dominating women.

    This individual doesn't quite understand what is going on. No one said anything about gay men. So, I don't know where the reference to gay men came from. I've repeatedly said that the transgender community by and large is nearly blind when it comes to misogyny. Crime statistics show that the vast majority of violence committed against females is being carried out by males. It's like 90% or higher. If transmen (females who "transition") are really men as they say are, then by the crime statistics alone, they are more likely to commit rape or sexual assault than a female. In contrast to the approximately 140,000 men incarcerated in prisons nationwide for sex crimes, only 1,500 women are estimated to be imprisoned for these offenses (Harrison & Beck, 2005). They represent only 1% of all adults incarcerated for sex offenses, and 2% of all females in prison. (FBI, 2006). Why are men more likely to be sex offenders than women? What role does testosterone play? I'm not saying all men are violent, but the crime statistics speak for themselves. Dirt is not allowed to ask some uncomfortable questions. What happens to females when they "transition"? I wish the transgender community would stop trying to have it both ways. Trans females are male we are told time and time again, but once they "transition" they magically transform into some kind of special male that never harms women. Is there such a thing? I seriously doubt it.

    Do you understand that there is little to NO evidence of ftm pedophilia and that such accusations are extremely harmful and hurtful? Do you understand what justice means?

    Do you understand that there is little to NO evidence of [men ever being pedophiles] and that such accusations are extremely harmful and hurtful? Do you understand what justice means? There are NO men who are pedophiles and NO men who are rapists. It's going to be very difficult convincing women that this is true.

    If FTMs are really men like we are constantly told, then the very fact that they are men makes them more likely to be sexual predators than a person who is female. There are far more registered sex offenders who are male than registered sex offender who are female. As a female, I'm statistically less likely to be a sexual predator than a male. The issue is misogyny coupled with testosterone which definitely play a major role in all forms of violence against women.

    By this I mean testosterone and aggression.
