  1. That's ten more out, loud and proud!

    Time to wrap up your virtual lynching campaign. Your movement is internally fractured and is losing critical mass by the day.

    It's never too late to go back to school and turn your life around, Dirt.

  2. Hey Dirt... you're missing a hyphen between the words "anti"and "gay". I guess your readership isn't large enough to warrant a copy editor.

  3. Hi Dirt! I'm so happy to see that lesbian women prefer to change the world than to change the body!

    Anyway, while "trans" is not a "trend", transsexualism is a real phnomenun. (Well, if you believe that brain is a real thing).

    Bye!


    When defending transsexualism, I see most people use the argument that your body determines sex and your brain determines gender. But gender is typically defined in “masculine” and “feminine” qualities, which has nothing to do with sex. Why? Because there are hundreds of variations of masculine women and feminine men who are satisfied with their bodies. I’ve read that some feminists want to do away with gender completely. I can understand that. However, even if we rejected all genders and gender roles, there would still be people who would be uncomfortable with the sex they were born into. Because transsexualism hinges on the physical aspects of your body, not gender roles, how society treats you, or how you view yourself in regards to society. It’s all about discomfort with your body, specifically with your biological sex.

    So what’s actually going on in your brain to cause this disconnect? It could be associated with white matter. It could be something we haven’t discovered yet. It might be something we won’t ever understand, at least not in scientific terms. For the past few months I’ve been journalling regularly so I don’t spend too much time rehashing thoughts in my head. This is an entry from a couple days ago:
    I think your body has a sex and your brain contains the blueprints of what your body is supposed to look like. In a rare few people, this doesn’t match up. Somewhere along the way your brain chose the lowest bidder and hired a shoddy construction company. Perhaps there was a miscommunication in the chain of command and the company ordered the wrong parts but installed them anyway. Because what could it hurt? There are plenty of other buildings with that same design and they’re perfectly functional. But once the owner steps inside his completed place, he knows something’s not quite right. Maybe he knows exactly what bothers him almost immediately. Maybe he can’t determine where his discomfort comes from until months or years down the road. But eventually it happens. When it does, you can bet he’s going to make some renovations. It won’t be perfect, of course; there are regulations to be followed and he doesn’t have access to the same resources and materials as before. But he’s going to spend hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars to make this permanent residence of his match the original blueprints as closely as possible.

    What is so smart about being dependent on an exogenous source of hormones for the rest one one's life or getting extensive plastic surgery on one's genitals? How does what amounts to elective mastectomies on healthy breasts relate to intelligence?

    The transgender community has never been able to prove one way or another how much of the desire to "transition" in these young females has to do with some serious internalized misogyny coupled with peer pressure and everything they read on the internet about "T" etc. and how much is actual "gender dysphoria".

    I've always said that gender-nonconformity, or certain people stepping outside the boundaries of traditional sex roles have always existed. They weren't always called transgender and they always didn't get their healthy breasts and genitals surgically altered.

  8. It's just like a construction site....I got my blueprints...I got my boots...hard hat...etc.

    "I think your body has a sex and your brain contains the blueprints of what your body is supposed to look like. In a rare few people, this doesn’t match up. Somewhere along the way your brain chose the lowest bidder and hired a shoddy construction company."

    The human body and human brain are far more complex than what goes on in a construction site. Intermingled with the human body and brain are cultural influences. What does, "somewhere along the way your brain chose the lowest bidder and hired a shoddy construction company" mean"

    "I think your body has a sex and your brain contains the blueprints of what your body is supposed to look like."

    So, "your brain contains the blueprints of what your body is supposed to look like". Does this include people with Body dysmorphic disorder (BDD, also body dysmorphia, dysmorphic syndrome; originally dysmorphophobia) which is a type of mental illness, a somatoform disorder, wherein the affected person is concerned with body image, manifested as excessive concern about and preoccupation with a perceived defect of their physical features. Some of these individuals go as far as to attempt amputation of a healthy limb, or they are so obsessed with a part of their anatomy that they get plastic surgery after plastic surgery, never being happy or secure with themselves.

    Of course, some women are anorexic because in their mind they appear too fat, although in reality they can be extremely thin, even dangerously skinny. They starve themselves because their mind is telling them one thing about their bodies which isn't based on reality.

  9. It's just like a blueprint or a construction site continued....

    "I think your body has a sex and your brain contains the blueprints of what your body is supposed to look like."

    Yes, this individual is correct in that humans are a species that reproduces sexually. Male and female does exist. I'm aware of intersex or disorders of sexual development, but the majority of transgender are NOT intersex. This rather silly and simple minded approach that compares the human body and mind to a construction site fails to acknowledge cultural influences that define what does and does not constitute "masculine" or "feminine". Moreover, it's sexist on its face in that it assumes that males come out of the womb with completely pre-set beliefs or behaviors that make them masculine. This also applies to females who supposedly come out of the womb preferring only pretty pink things and frilly dresses. Apparently, it's the "blueprint" and sometimes the "blueprint" doesn't match X or Y. This can be remedied with years of hormones and extensive plastic surgery on one's genitals.

    There is a large body of research that shows that many of the so-called sex differences in the brain are largely culturally based. That is, men think one way and women think another way, or boys play with cars, and girls with Barbies. “ Delusions of Gender: How Our Minds, Society, and Neurosexism Create Difference” by Cordellia Fine is an excellent book which addresses this issue. She is a neuroscientist.
    “Pink Brain, Blue Brain” is another good book. Lise Eliot, a graduate of Harvard, received her Ph.D. from Columbia University. She is Associate Professor of Neuroscience at The Chicago Medical School of Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science. She argues that infant brains are so malleable that what begin as small differences at birth become amplified over time, and the culture at large—unwittingly reinforce gender stereotypes.

    If it’s true that culture plays a major role in reinforcing traditional sex roles, what does this say about the transgender “blueprint, brain sex” theories, or "your body has a sex and your brain contains the blueprints of what your body is supposed to look like". Androgens in fetal development might create a propensity for certain behaviors, but society gets to dictate what is “masculine” and “feminine”. If the differences between male and female brains aren’t as great as we thought they were, what does this say about transgender "blue print, brain theories"?

    There certainly is no gross anatomical structure called a "trans brain". Please get out a "blueprint" of the brain and show me where it's located. In transsexuals, the sexes are divided into neatly stereotypical sets of behaviors as "masculine" or "feminine". If people don't fall in line with these stereotypes, they MUST actually be the other sex because only males do such and such. We are supposed to believe that the "blueprint brain theories" are progressive, and even revolutionary, but it's just a warmed over version of the same old sexism.

  11. What I would say to the 14 year old FTM...

    (1.) Girls can wear 'boy's clothes' and still be girls.
    (2.) Girls can have short hair and still be girls.
    (3.) Girls can like sports or cars and still be proud and strong girls.
    (4.) Being gay or liking girls does not mean you are really a boy inside. It just means that you like girls. When you get older, it's perfectly fine for girls to like other girls, or to like boys, or both. I don't care whether you prefer men or women. It's your choice. I only hope that you love your beautiful female self.
    (5.) Biological females can never completely be male no matter how much "T" they take, or whether or not they get "top surgery"/"bottom surgery"/hysterectomy, etc. Nothing changes the genetics, and the ripped manly chest and masculine muscles come from "T" (a synthetic hormone) and surgery.
    (6.) Changing one's body to fit neatly into what society says is "feminine" or "masculine" doesn't take much courage. If anything, changing society does.
    (7.) Girls can be proud, independent, and strong just the way they are.
    (8.) I was no different than you when I was your age. I was the stereotypical tomboy who didn't like dresses. I eventually embraced my female identity which I see as a blessing. Being female is a precious gift.

    Girls kick ass....girls rule...girls can do anything...

  12. The 15 year old "FTM" seems so sad. How and where do 15 year old girls hear about "T", "top surgery", and breast binders? I have repeatedly posed this question on this blog. How much of this is really "gender dysphoria" and how much is everything they see and read online or hear from their friends? The 15 year old says she already wears a breast binder. It's not like the transgender community doesn't know that breast binding for long stretches of time can cause health problems (mis-aligned ribs etc.). These are developing female bodies, bones, joints, and skeletons, so why do they need to get into the habit of constricting their breasts which pushes on the rib cage and internal organs? Doesn't breast binding just reinforce the dysphoria with the breasts? Why are 15 year old females already talking about "top surgery"? Where do they hear this from? Do 15 year old girls really know what "top surgery" entails?

    I felt very uncomfortable as a teenager too. I was a tomboy and liked to pass as boy. I didn't bind, but I hid my breasts under a heavy coat or sweatshirt. I outgrew it and now I love every part of my female body. Dysphoria does not equal transgender.

  13. Evan says she is a "genderqueer transguy" or something like that. She seems more genderqueer than trans to me. Evan, I have no problems at all with most queer identified folks, but females don't have to get their healthy breasts cut off or take a synthetic source of testosterone. My advice is to stay genderqueer and drop the notion to "transition".

    ReplyDelete
  14. I WONDER IF ANY PHYSICIANS EVER READ THIS BLOG. IT SHOULD BE OBVIOUS TO ANYONE BY NOW THAT THESE GIRLS USE YOUTUBE AND THE INTERNET ETC. TO PROMOTE "T", BREAST BINDING ETC. THEY JUST REINFORCE, PROP UP, SUPPORT, PROMOTE "TRANSITIONING", AND ENCOURAGE EACH OTHER. Which came first? Is it watching video after video, story after story of the benefits of "T" and "transitioning", or actual "gender dysphoria" that "T" supposedly cures? It seems that one is just feeding the other, and NO MATTER WHAT THE TRANS COMMUNITY SAYS THERE IS NO WAY OF PROVING THIS ONE WAY OR ANOTHER. Does the promotion of "T" and "transitioning" actually make these females feel as if "transitioning" is the only thing available to them? "T" is a prescription drug for what basically what amounts to a psychiatric diagnosis, but it's being promoted via youtube videos and trans websites. They have to record their first shot of "T", their first week on "T", the first six months of "T" etc. I've been on "T" for a month, and if I look closely in the mirror, I can see two whiskers on my chin. It's all on a youtube video that they share with their friends. It's so strange to me because people on insulin don't say, Today I had my first shot of "I" and paste it all over youtube for their buddies to share.


    The same goes for breast binding and "top surgery" "Top surgery essentially amounts to elective mastectomies with the surgical resizing of nipples and areolas. The nipples are areolas are often cut off, whittled down to size, then sewn back on after the double mastectomy. Because the nipples are often cut off and resized, loss of sensation is common, or the nipple graft doesn't take resulting in a loss of a nipple. The type of "top surgery" usually depends on the size of the breasts. Do 14 and 15 year old girls understand what "top surgery" really entails? I doubt it. What is actually happening to female bodies is hidden behind words such as "top surgery" or "transitioning". Even a prescription drug that is injected is simply called "T".

    Although it should be so painfully obvious to anyone, the transgender community continues to deny that it promotes "T", breast binding, "top surgery", or "transitioning". Moreover, there is money to be made off the bodies of these young females, and "transitioning" is more or less a life time commitment.

    1. The transgender community, even in a Western context, PRE-DATES the internet!

    2. The reason we are seeing an increase in people coming out of the closet as transgender parallels the reason we saw homosexuals come out of the closet in great numbers in the 1970s.

    3. Not all of the transgender people Dirt attempts to shame on this posting intend to or ever will receive medical intervention. They are using the QUEER lexicon to express their identities because they do not want to limit themselves with the limited language of the mainstream gay community of earlier generations.

  17. anon @ 10:18 am

    To add to that, is anon @ 2:30 asking for DOCUMENTATION OF GENDER DYSPHORIC EXPRESSION IN TRANS PEOPLE?

    Do you know any psychologists in the queer community who work with this population? I'm sure you could ask them and they would share.

    Or, just review history.

    Gender dysphoric expression resulted in the invention of the Harry Benjamin Standards of Care in 1979.

    I am not saying I agree with the pathologization of trans identities via this model, but I figured I would answer a question you posed.

  19. In regards to your series of 'Why I haven't transitioned' guest posts, the latest one makes no sense at all. I thought the concept would be helpful, posts by transgender men and women who don't medically transition, learning to accept the sex\gender mismatch and not harming the body. But these people writing the testimonials are just butch woman and one bi drag Queen. How they think their experiences have any connection to transgender men and women, I really don't get it.

  21. The transgender community, even in a Western context, PRE-DATES the internet!

    I've always said that gender non-conformity has always existed. For whatever reason, some intrepid souls throughout history have always stepped outside the boundaries of traditional sex roles. THEY WEREN'T ALWAYS CALLED TRANSGENDER. THEY WENT BY MANY DIFFERNT NAMES, AND THE TRANSGENDER COMMUNITY HAS SHAMELESSLY CO-OPTED THEIR EXPERIENCE AND IDENTITY BY THROWING ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING UNDER THE "TRANS UMBRELLA". THE TRANSGENDER COMMUNITY DOES NOT OWN A PATENT ON ALL GENDER NON-CONFORMITY BOTH PAST AND PRESENT. I KNOW IT THINKS IT DOES, BUT THIS IS JUST HUBRIS SPEAKING. As to "transitioning", on the extremely long time line of human history, sex reassignment surgery, synthetically produced hormones for "gender dysphoria", puberty suppressing drugs, etc. represent a tiny on the timeline of human history.

    The transgender community, even in a Western context, PRE-DATES the internet!

    The mutilation of female bodies in all its myriad of forms is thousands of years old. How old is sexism and misogyny? This PRE-DATES transgender and definitely PRE-DATES "transitioning". Besides, this individual wouldn't be here today if a female didn't bring him or her into this world. His or her mother PRE-DATES his or her very existence. No human alive can exist with an X chromosome or the mitochondrial DNA which is inherited solely from the mother.

  22. "Not all of the transgender people Dirt attempts to shame on this posting intend to or ever will receive medical intervention"

    I hope they reconsider "transitioning". Also, I noticed that this individual calls it "medical intervention" as if it's akin to going to the emergency room for a cut or minor accident. A physician isn't going to prescribe testosterone to a biological female without a reason. The reason given is "gender dysphoria" which, by the way, essentially amounts to a psychiatric diagnosis. Some are also getting both their healthy breasts surgically removed based on a psychiatric diagnosis. It does seem kind of surreal and Orwellian. We all know that psychiatry has such a stellar human rights record with the lobotomies, shock treatments, etc. If they can’t find an actual physician for the “T” letter or the elective mastectomy with surgically whittled down areolas and nipples, they can always try online gender therapy if they have a credit card. As we see time and time again it's getting difficult to distinguish between actual "gender dysphoria" and everything they see and hear online and from their friends about “T” etc. These are females, and some of these 14, 15, and 16 year old girls are already binding their breasts. Didn't the 14 year old say that she was already binding? Or, was it the 15 year old? Does this individual even know that breast binding can mis-align ribs. The transgender community knows about this, but there are websites where girls under the age of 21 can get free used binders. They are already talking about "T" and "top surgery". These are teenagers, and where do they hear this? Where is it coming from? As to females “transitioning”, how is it possible to completely distinguish internalized misogyny and/or everything they see or read online or hear from their friends from “gender dysphoria”? When pressed, even some members of the transgender community will admit that culture and peer influences can influence one’s decision to “transition.

    No, this is only partly true at best. Some might argue that transgender, particularly female “transitioning” (surgery, testosterone, etc.) was just part of the backlash against second wave feminism. Isn’t it interesting that transgender seemed to take off or expand about the same time that second wave feminism was declining? I don’t know why this person brought up gay men and lesbians. Historically, we know there have been periods in time in which sex reassignment surgery has been used as a means of social control, specifically the erasing of gay and lesbian identity.

    WHEN GENDER STUDIES TOOK OVER WOMEN’S HISTORY, WHAT ACTUALLY HAPPENED AND WHAT DID WE SEE? I ARGUE THAT PERHAPS “TOP SURGERY” (SEE THE ACTUAL VIDEO BELOW) AROSE IN THE ABSENCE OF FEMINISM. IT MIGHT HAVE EXISTED BEFORE, BUT THE INCREASE OCCURRED DURING SECOND WAVE FEMINISM'S DECLINE. WE ALSO SAW AN INCREASE IN HYPER-FEMINITY AND PORNOGRAPHY.

    IN "TOP SURGERY" THE NIPPLES AND AREOLAS ARE LITERALLY CUT OFF, RESIZED, AND THEN SEWN BACK ON AFTER THE ELECTIVE MASTECTOMY.

  25. It may not be possible to distinguish internalized misogyny from transness. Certainly not in any kind of quantifiable way that would satisfy feminists or lesbians. Thank god it's not my obligation to satisfy the lesbians or feminists.

    It is also not possible to separate society's intrinsic hatred and fear of transpeople from judgement and condemnation of transitioning. That is to say-you are infected. I don't believe there is a single thing wrong with being trans or transitioning. Period. From my standpoint, you all seem incredibly self-involved, paranoid, and juvenile. The more you vilify us, the more sympathy and support will be shunted our way-just because of your abuse.

    Or, in other words, we owe absolutely nothing to future generations of females, females don't matter, feminism doesn't matter, and we are NEVER WRONG. History is littered with medical fads and various trends that seemed so enticing, and then turned out to be a nightmare. They all thought they were right too. Moreover, unfortunately, the mutilation of female bodies never does seem to go completely out of style.

    Also, I'm pleased to hear that this person does admit that it's impossible to clearly distinguish or ferret out how much is internalized misogyny, culture, peer pressure, etc. and how much is actual "gender dysphoria".

    IF PEOPLE ARE WRONG ABOUT FEMALE "TRANSITIONING", IT SURE AS HECK DOES RESEMBLE FEMALE GENITAL MUTILATION. IT HAS ALWAYS AMAZED ME HOW THE TRANSGENDER COMMUNITY IS SO CAVALIER WHEN IT COMES TO SURGICALLY ALTERING HEALTHY FEMALE GENITALS AND BREASTS, OR INJECTING THEM WITH SYNTHETIC HORMONES.

    BY THE WAY, THIS IS AN ARTICLE ABOUT A "TRANSMAN" PHYSICIAN WHO RECOMMENDED THAT A WOMAN GET "TOP SURGERY" WHICH SHE LATER REGRETTED.

    "Dr Richard Curtis, who was born Vanda Zadorozny, but had a sex change in 2005, is being investigated by the General Medical Council, after at least three separate complaints.

    The London-based GP is accused of prescribing sex change hormones “to several patients” that were not appropriate and also ignoring restrictions placed on his practice.

    In one case reportedly under investigation by the GMC, the doctors’ regulator, a woman complained she regretted undergoing treatment, which included having a double mastectomy and taking hormones.

    In another case, it was alleged Dr Curtis, 46, prescribed sex change drugs to patients under 18, without the specialist knowledge or skills to do so.


    It is alleged that Dr Curtis, who provides private treatment to patients pursuing “gender reassignment”, failed to follow accepted standards of care. "

    DON'T EVER TELL ME THAT THE TRANSGENDER COMMUNITY DOESN'T PROMOTE BREAST BINDING EVEN THOUGH THEY KNOW IT CAN MIS-ALIGN RIBS, "TOP SURGERY", "T" FOR 16 YEAR OLD GIRLS, AND PUBERTY SUPPRESSING DRUGS FOR 12 AND 13 YEAR OLD KIDS.

    WTF?

    "Transitioning" is NOT a person. It involves a life time commitment to an exogenous source of hormones and extensive plastic surgery on one's genitals and/or what amounts to elective mastectomies on healthy breasts. Some members of the transgender community have already admitted that culture, peer pressure, etc. might influence one's decision to "transition". The mutilation of female bodies in whatever form it takes is usually culturally based. This is what history teaches us. "Transitioning" (surgery on breasts and genitals and testosterone) is carried out because of a psychiatric diagnosis which, whether they admit it or not, is far more subjective than an actual medical test that can be accurately quantified.

  28. You will be really hard-pressed to find transmen who transition and later go on to miss their breasts. If you are stupid enough to undergo expensive surgery and a complete change in how you are treated by society *without* really thinking about the consequences of your actions, then I'm pretty sure I don't want you in my community. People who only see themselves as victims are useless, so going around sueing gender doctors because of a mistake *you* made is like sueing Mcdonalds for drinking their scalding coffee while it's too hot. I think most transitioners are not in this category. I have come to understand that the women posting here are completely unable to see any person with xx chromosomes as *anything* but a victim. Probably the most insulting of all of the hatred here is the implication that we are victims of something that we just don't understand. And we need some lesbians to explain how we just don't know ourselves as well as you know us. What's actually happening is that you are very emotionally invested in having people be "like" you. Emotional to the extent that you can't even question your beliefs about us, which makes you untrustworthy. You can be presented with our exact experience - no health problems, improved sense of well-being, no "transition-regret" , no problems of any kind outside of the normal human condition- and yet you insist that we are a tragedy and we must be stopped. Whose tragedy? Yours. Because you only care about these kids "learning" to think like you. You don't care about the kids themselves AS THEY SEE THEMSELVES. Reminds me of how straight men see lesbians as really being wayward straight women led astray by a fake lifestyle. The motivation for their beliefs and for yours is the same. Good job confronting yourselves on your bullshit.

    I don't know if this female misses her breasts or not, BUT SHE DEFINITELY DOESN'T LIKE THE WAY THEY WERE LOPPED OFF!

    "By: S

    BOTTOM LINE: DON’T choose to have surgery with Dr. Leis. If you feel you have no other choice, WAIT. You will be glad you did. For those who want a more detailed explanation, read on. Dr. Leis is dishonest and incompetent. I speak from personal experience, having suffered a botched bilateral mastectomy (FTM chest surgery that he performed. Here is my story. Before the surgery, I had very tiny breasts; not even A cup. When I raised my arms high over my head, or looked at my reflection in dim light that cast no shadows, I looked flat-chested. Therefore, top surgery was a low priority for me, and I by no means wanted to rush into it. I was willing to wait to get top surgery until I could receive a letter from my therapist, because when I consulted Dr. Leis, I knew he was dishonest. Several of the answers he gave me about the laws and limitations regarding FTM reassignment surgery were flat out lies; I knew due to my internet research and discussions with other surgeons. Therefore, I had a very bad feeling about him from the start, but I ended up having to get my top surgery from him. (Because I wasn’t trans enough for my therapist, due to liking my hair long and occasionally cross-dressing in my old female clothes, she refused to write me a letter for top surgery and I had to go to Leis because he was the only surgeon I knew who doesn’t require letters. She also refused to let me move forward with my transition until I had my breasts out, but I won’t go into detail about that.) Anyway, despite all my better judgement and intuition, I had the mastectomy with Dr. Leis. While I recovered, I stayed in a rented room in his office building, which was filthy and disgusting. (I even found a soiled bed liner from a previous patient stuffed behind the headboard of my bed!) The surgery seemed to have gone well until a week later, when he removed the bandages to take out the drains. Then I saw the scars were large and very uneven, and my nipples still looked female. He seemed perplexed about why “they” had not stitched the drain in on one side. (He never told me anyone else would be involved in the surgery, and denied that anyone was afterward.) He assured me the scars would fade to nothing and my nipples would flatten out on their own in a few months, then he taped my wounds (insufficiently), and sent me home a few days later… …without a prescription for antibiotics. By the time my designated driver took me home (only a few hours later), my wounds were aching and oozing, and I had to go to the emergency care clinic because they had become infected. After a little internet research, I discovered Dr. Leis has a long record of infections due to his unwillingness to prescribe preventative antibiotics after surgery. (As for the stipulation that he does not wear gloves, I can’t comment, because I don’t know.) When I went back for a follow-up appointment about a month later, he assured me my result was “beautiful” and healing perfectly, despite the scars becoming red, raised, and painful, and the nipples not flattening a bit. He refused to listen to any of my complaints or questions, dismissing me as a perfectionist. (For the record, I wasn’t expecting perfection, but even to my untrained eye I looked much worse afterwards than before.) "

  32. Blueprint....

    Sexual identity is imprintend in brain. A normal female is not aware of this because her body is compliant her brain.
    Mind is not BRAIN, mind is easy to manipulate, brain is not.

    I don't mind about sexism, privilege, gender binary and other stuff.
    I'm not saying that if you have a female brain you have to wear skirts and make children.

    I just want you to understand that actually there are people who are born transsexual.
    Transsexualism is not about man-woman male-female dichotomy, it is about healthy-disease dichotomy.

    I studied psychology for years, I'm sure that True transsexuals can't be mentally ill.
    They are perfectly aware of what they feel and often try to comply with their body.

    True transsexualism is about FEELING to be in the wrong body, not thinkin, looking at the mirror, perceiveing.

    that is "I am emotionally female, i feel that i am a female who lives in a male body".
    The body becomes a cage in all senses.

    I watch a video by Dirt, she said that if you are female and then take testosterone you'll feel depressed and you won't be yourself anymore. That's true and this is what true transsexuals feel BEFORE "transitioning".

    Transsexualism is not about "normalizing" homosexuality.
    It is just about the right for some people to be cared for.


    Ok.. now you can keep talkin about culture,gender binary, male privilege, trends, and other stuff.

    Exactly what I stated before: there are true transsexuals and they need help because they suffer since childhood.

    Most FTM's today are not true transsexuals, they're transtrenders. They never suffered before they heard about FTM's. They think it's the next cool thing to do. We're most of the time not talking about true transsexuals here. We're talking about the girls who stumble upon the YouTube movies and get interested.

    I'm doing research about this topic so thanks for explaining me the FTM transtrenders issue.

    It is clear, for me, that transsexualism is a dramatic medical condition, but i suppose that it is not the same for all.

    A boy/girl who talk about "transition" as a TREND cannot be a true transsexual.
    (Tell them)

    I don't live in USA, i don't know why all these "FTM transtrenders" are allowed to transition.
    Maybe it is not clear that "transition", for true transsexuals, means "care" "rehabilitation",
    because one cannot magically switch from one sex to the other (you cannot "change sex").
    But if you were born with transsexualism you'll NEED to "transition".

    Experts are developing specific tests for early diagnosis.
    NOT EVERYONE should be allowed to this procedure.

    Sorry if i misunderstood your intent.

    I mean this blog is about
    Butch vs FtM identities.

    I'd like to tell "FTM transtrenders" that "FTM" is not an identity or a label.
    It was just an acronym that belonged ONLY to True female-to-male transsexuals and it was used ONLY as a medical term, not as an identity.

    If you think that "transition" is a sort of recreation of gender identity, gender roles or gender norms you are full of shit.

    Gender identity is a social construct.
    Sexual identity is not.

    So Butch means : i am female (sexual identity-unchangeable)but i don't act and i don't identify as a "typical" heterosexual woman submissed to men (Gender identity)
    (right?)

    FtM means nothing, in terms of Gender.

    Feminists fight for WOMEN rights, not for female rights.

    If you (transgender-trenders)think that being a woman means boobs and vagina then why there are people who fight for women rights?

    You must not keep talking about transsexualism because you don't know what it is.

    True transsexuals's medical histories shouldn't be public property, and "transition" should be restricted to people who really need it.

    True transsexuals need attention by doctors, not social visibility.

    Trans-trenders.... LOL

    I wish someone could explain to me what a "True transsexual" is. People keep saying “True transsexual”. Does this mean there are false transsexuals? How can we tell them apart? Can people be a little bit true and a little bit false, or somewhere in the middle? Wait, I guess the logic goes like this! People are true transsexuals because they say they are. There is really no way to prove this one way or another. We just have to take their word for it.

    I thought that transsexual meant a transgender individual who had sex reassignment surgery and hormones. Isn’t this correct? I'm getting confused? Of course, people can’t really change their sex no more than they can change their species, but this is another subject. People either get extensive plastic surgery on their healthy genitals in a process called “transitioning” or they don’t.

    I’m truly a frog. I am a True frog as opposed to the others who aren’t.

    This individual is so completely full of **it that he or she surely is in dire need of a laxative. Perhaps this is why he or she can’t spell or type worth a darn. It must be awful uncomfortable trying to type while being so full of it.

    If this person thinks that the transgender community doesn't encourage these teenage girls with all the talk about "T", "top surgery", etc., then he or she is either delusional or extremely naïve. There was even a case in the UK where a transgender doctor came under review for inappropriately prescribing hormones and suggesting sex change surgery to some patients. SCROLL UP TO THE UK LINK ON DR. RICHARD CURTIS born Vanda Zadorozny. How many times do we have to see this unfolding before our own eyes before people finally admit that it's happening? Upon careful scrutiny, it's impossible to tell how much is actual "gender dyshporia" and how much is everything they see, read online, and hear from their friends? When we have a situation in which the transgender community, plastic surgeons, online gender therapists, etc. push, promote, encourage, and glorify "transitioning", how are rational people supposed to believe that it's solely about "gender dysphoria"? No, I think something else is going on, and it's largely culturally based. Where do these 14 and 15 year old girls hear about "T"? I'll pose the same question again? Which came first? Is it all the talk about "T" and everything on trans websites, etc., or actual "gender dysphoria" which “T” is supposed to cure? If it's really "gender dysphoria" in a 15 year old girl, does this automatically mean that she needs "T" when she turns 16? These 15 and 16 year old girls are calling a prescription drug "T". They make youtube videos of "pre-T", "T" this and "T" that. If they can’t get an actual therapist to write the “T letter” to trot to some quack, then they can always try online “gender therapy” provided they have a proper credit card and Skype on their laptop. It’s a business, and business looks pretty good right now.

  39. "Feminists fight for WOMEN rights, not for female rights."


    WTF? I mean what the F is this? All those foolish and naïve suffragettes and women who fought for reproductive health care and access to birth control were NOT fighting for female rights. What were they fighting for?
    Feminists fight for the rights of all people, especially females because females matter and are important. How does calling biological males “women” benefit women? Who benefits the most from this Orwellian appropriation of the word “woman” by biological males? Women don’t get anything out of it. Besides, what has transgender ever done for females? That is, except for FTM “transitioning” which does two things: (1.) radically alters healthy female anatomy in ghastly procedures called “top surgery” and “bottom surgery”, and (2.) erases female identity itself. How is erasing female identity in a process called FTM “transitioning” related to feminism?

    If feminists didn't fight for FEMALE rights, women wouldn't have the right to vote, a right to an education, or have access to birth control. Females do exist. Adult females are called women. Biological males are NOT female and ARE not women. Do biological males get pregnant? Do they need birth control? The idea that a biological male can be a "woman" because HE says HE is something that was forced on women. It’s not like women got to vote on it or anything. Men in dresses say they are “women”, and women are supposed to believe them. Most people secretly think it's a crock of crap. Deep down in our hearts, the majority of women don't believe it, but women are conditioned to be pleasant and non-confrontational. We all know it's politically correct nonsense. I don’t have any problem with males dressing up as women if this is what really thrills them, but I refuse to acknowledge males as actual women. Why are women the only historically oppressed group of people who aren’t granted the right to define themselves? Males define basically everything in the world, and they also get to define who is and isn’t a woman. I don’t think so. The idea that males are “women” just because males say they are is something that was shoved down the throats of women. I’m not buying it.

    Please note that I said biological males not intersex individuals which I'm more open to the idea of possible calling 'women'. That is, under certain circumstances. Intersex and transgender are NOT one and the same. The vast majority of transgender are either biological males or biological females who do NOT have an intersex medical condition which can be diagnosed through genetic testing or other medical tests. Transgender is essentially all in one's mind. Because transgender has co-opted intersex, we have to keep reminding people of this fact. Most intersex organizations make a distinction between intersex and transgender. The fact that many MTFs "transition" in their mid-thirties after living most of their lives as males, even marrying women and fathering children is proof that they are, indeed, males not female.

    Males can be wonderful and caring humans, but they are not female, and thus are not women.

  40. True transsexuals need attention by doctors, not social visibility.


    Doesn't "True transsexual" (as opposed to the false ones), make the assumption that the psychiatric diagnosis of "gender dysphoria" or "gender identity disorder" was correct to begin with? A diagnosis from a therapist, psychiatrist (or an online gender therapist) is by its very nature more subjective than an actual medical test or a lab test that is clearly quantifiable and not subject to cultural bias. We can see, pick up, and quantify a lab test. In most western countries, physicians aren't going to prescribe the "T" or perform a mastectomy on healthy breasts without a letter from a therapist. I argue that culture itself can influence even a therapist's conception of gender, and thus "gender dyshporia".

    It was "social visibility" that put an end to most of the more grotesque psychiatric and medical practices. History is littered with them.

  43. Transsexualism is not about "normalizing" homosexuality.
    It is just about the right for some people to be cared for.


    We went over this a about hundred times before on this blog, and it's well documented to have occurred by credible sources. There have been times in which sex reassignment surgery has been used as a form of social control, specifically the erasing of gay and lesbian identity. Gay men in Iran are coerced into sex reassignment surgery. As I understand it, it's been going on for some time. The government of Iran will help pay for sex reassignment surgery, but homosexuality is punishable by death. Ahmadinejad is quoted as saying that there are NO homosexuals in Iran. He really means it too. This is because if the gay men like other men, they will pay to have their testicles cut off so that they pass as women, and then it's okay for them to have sex with men.

    "The Iranian government's "solution" for homosexuality is to endorse, and fully pay for, sex reassignment surgery. The leader of Iran's Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, issued a fatwa declaring sex reassignment surgery permissible for "diagnosed transsexuals." Eshaghian's documentary, Be Like Others, chronicles a number of stories of Iranian gay men who feel transitioning is the only way to avoid further persecution, jail and/or execution. The head of Iran's main transsexual organization, Maryam Khatoon Molkara—who convinced Khomeini to issue the fatwa on transsexuality—confirmed that some people who undergo operations are gay rather than transsexual.

    "Eshaghian decided she had to interview some of those involved in this gender-reassignment program. The result is a devastating documentary called "Be Like Others". Shot in verité style, the film captures the pain and brutality of a regime that is pushing sex-change operations as the path to a final solution to homosexuality.... What her film reveals is a culture so steeped in hatred of gays and lesbians that it deems a sex change preferable to simply accepting differences in sexual orientation."

    http://www.cbc.ca/news/arts/film/story/2008/08/26/f-homosexuality-iran-sex-change.html

    Look at these teenage girls in the youtube videos. Twenty years ago, they would have just been called tomboys. What do we know about tomboys and boys a tad on the effeminate side? Researchers have known for decades that childhood gender-nonconformity is a pretty good predictor of homosexuality. Is it perfect? No, but there is a correlation.

    "Most children with gender dysphoria will not remain gender dysphoric after puberty. Children with persistent GID are characterized by more extreme gender dysphoria in childhood than children with desisting gender dysphoria. With regard to sexual orientation, the most likely outcome of childhood GID is homosexuality or bisexuality."

    Doubts? Really?
    I contacted this FTM and she said she only wanted T and her breast taken aways and that she should get it somehow. She was one of the young FTM's exposing in YouTube getting attention.

    Wouldn't it be great if women could get more power from men? I'm not talking about actually HAVING MORE power than men. I'm talking about having the SAME or EQUAL amount of power as men.

    There are men that I have respected and loved dearly. My father and paternal grandfather were good, kind, and decent men. Men are capable of great compassion, but I’ve always been a realist. Apart from male relatives, I don't care if a person is male or female. He or she has to earn my trust and respect.

    YOU ARE SO FUCKING HYPOCRITES.
    You don't attack rapists and oppressors. You attack MEN.
    (note: why a woman couldn't be a rapist?)


    All the crime statistics show that the vast majority of sex offenders are male. The statistics say 99% of people who rape are men.

    http://www.oneinfourusa.org/statistics.php

    In the United States, 1 in 6 women and 1 in 33 men reported experiencing an attempted or completed rape at some time in their lives. (Male victims are usually raped by other males)

    When women bring these facts up, we are told that we HATE men. No, we just believe in telling the truth and naming the agent. Women can't talk about rape without bringing up the subject of men. It's impossible to do so. Do women rape men at the same rate that men rape women? The answer is clearly no. Also, the crime statistics clearly show that most violent crimes are committed by males. For example, in the U.S., virtually all the school shootings, mass killings at shopping malls, movie theatres, etc. were committed by males, particularly males between the ages of about 16 to age 30.

    "


    I’ve always identified as a woman, or female. I don’t identify as butch. Besides, butch lesbians ARE WOMEN. Only misogynistic, homophobic, entitled males believe otherwise.

    Even with testosterone and “top surgery”, biological females (XX) are not male and can never fully be male.

    By the way, I'm curious as to what this person’s definition of “womanhood” is? Does he mean traditional sex roles or what society says constitutes femininity? That is, girls are supposed to wear pink, frilly clothes and play with dolls and so forth. If so, this is truly sexist on its face. Females exist whereas “femininity” is largely socially constructed. Some of these 15 and 16 year old girls think that just because they don’t like wearing dresses, this means that they MUST really be boys. No, this just means that they are girls who don’t like dresses or make up. Or, perhaps this misogynistic man believes that it’s far better to surgically alter a female who happens to step outside the boundaries of traditional sex roles, and start calling her “he” for rejecting rigid, culturally based sex roles. In my opinion, this is no better than the way that the Iranian government and society coerces gay men into sex reassignment surgery because it’s better to be transsexual and have the outward appearance of being a women than be an effeminate gay man. Homosexuals are executed in Iran, but the government will help pay for sex reassignment surgery.

    This individual really is ignorant of history in that the mutilation of female bodies is nothing new. It's been going on for centuries. I have to keep repeating this because people are so ignorant of women's history, or they simply could care less.

    Dr. Daniel Medalie performs FtM top surgery (double incision mastectomy with nipple grafting)

    http://www.surgerytheater.com/video/6423/Dr.%20Daniel%20Medalie%20performs%20FtM%20top%20surgery%20(double%20incision%20mastectomy%20with%20nipple%20grafting)


    Copy and past the link. This is the transgender community’s contribution to the female sex. How will future historians view this? The areolas and nipples are literally cut off the female and surgically whittled down to size, and then sewn back on after the mastectomy. Loss of sensation is common, and every now and then a nipple graft doesn't take resulting in loss of a nipple. "Bottom surgery" often involves 6 to 8 inches of skin grafts taken from the arm, thigh, or other part of the body being sewn onto the female pubic area.

    I'm very proud of being female, and I love my female anatomy. FTM "transitioning" not only drastically alters healthy female genitals, breasts, and reproductive systems, it actually erases female identity itself. I argue that in FTM it's impossible to distinguish between internalized misogyny and "gender dysphoria". It's interesting to note that we saw an increase in female "transitioning" during the decline of second wave feminism.

    I DO NOT MEAN TO DISRESPECT ANY FRENCH PERSON OR FRENCH CULTURE. I'M SURE THAT THERE ARE INTELLIGENT FRENCH PEOPLE. I wasn't making sport of this individual's lack of proper English skills so much as his ability to reason.

  51. "I'm not studying psychology for nothing. My job is to help people, not to help myself."

    YOU ARE SO WTFfWTWFkSJ SELFISH and ARROGANT, hiding behind "women-female-vagina rights" cause, only to get what YOU want.

    You are fighting for "women rights" but identify as "butch, not woman".

    You are not interested in understanding human nature, you will never accept the fact that there are people born with a female anatomy that are really man because YOU don't accept your womanhood, and THAT'S THE FACT.


    I pray to God, Allah, Buddha, and the Great Spirit that this person NEVER becomes a psychologist. He probably would suggest that girls start taking "T" (testosterone) if they weren't sufficiently "feminine" enough to suit his taste. I can see him now. "Well, young lady, I see that you don't like pretty little pink dresses or makeup....Therefore, you must really be a boy...we will start you on "T" as soon as possible."

    The eugenics of gender non-conforming children and homophobia are immoral in any language. I'm sorry that the French have to claim this person. I'm assuming that he is French.

  52. I am still baffled that anyone would spend all their time spewing hatred about what other people are doing with their lives. I mean, it's not actually that baffling – really sad people who are incredibly unhappy with their own lives and in a lot of pain do that. And for that, I am sorry for you.

    Get a life, Dirt. Really. I'm not even saying that to be mean. Get a hobby. Find something you love to do. Besides bash other people about what they are doing with their lives. Fly a kite. Bowl. Knit. I don't fucking care. Do something with yourself. Because honestly, you are just sad at this point.

    This blog is no different than fundamentalist Christians that tell gay and lesbian people that they are wrong and that there is no such thing as gay – just confused straight people. It is no different. None!

    So seriously – quit worrying about what everyone else is doing. Take care of your fucking self. And get a life. For real. You'll be much less sad than you very, very obviously are.

    Perhaps this person just doesn't like people to expose the deep seated hatred of females and lesbians that behind words such as "top surgery" "T", and "bottom surgery".

    In "transitioning" the violence being carried out against the female sex is carefully hidden behind words such as "top surgery" or "transitioning". The majority of people never see what it actually entails. They don't see the blood, or the nipples and areolas cut off a female to be resized. They don't see the large incisions from the mastectomy. The mutilation of female bodies in all its various forms spans thousands of years. Is there ever been a time in which it hasn't existed? How will future historians view "top surgery" and "bottom surgery" on biological females.

    Healthy female breasts are being surgically cut off women, and their areolas and nipples are being surgically whittled down so that they can be sewn back on after what amounts to elective mastectomies.

    Some kids are being "diagnosed" with "gender identity disorder" at age 5 or 6. How can any rational person say that this isn't problematic?

    Children that are between the ages of 11 and 15 are given puberty suppressing drugs for what amounts to a psychiatric diagnosis. Some of these children go from puberty suppressing drugs at age 12 or 13 to cross gender hormones at age 16.A normal part of human development, adolescence, is being intentionally delayed based on a psychiatric diagnosis. How can people say that this doesn't raise a lot of questions. Children ages from about 12 to 16 no doubt feel different, but they do not have the capacity to weigh all their options and use judgment.

    ”The prefrontal cortex, the part of the frontal lobes lying just behind the forehead, is often referred to as the “CEO of the brain.” This brain region is responsible for cognitive analysis and abstract thought, and the moderation of “correct” behavior in social situations. The prefrontal cortex takes in information from all of the senses and orchestrates thoughts and actions to achieve specific goals.1,2 This brain region gives an individual the capacity to exercise “good judgment” when presented with difficult life situations. Brain research indicating that brain development is not complete until near the age of 25, refers specifically to the development of the prefrontal cortex.”

    It's just not "T". The transgender community knows full well that breast binding can possibly mis-align ribs. This doesn't stop transgender websites from giving away free breast binders to girls under the age of 21.

  54. Why is it that every time I stop by this site to see what new children are being preyed upon, I see the exact same rhetoric being spewed each and every time?

    Additionally, why is it that the tanti-trans people always sound as if these people are being forced to transition against their will, that it's all the fault of the "male medical machine" (part of that rhetoric that is repeated over and over) trying to erase "female" from the planet. Do you realize that these children typically arrive at this decision themselves, and often start using hormones without their parents' permission, AND, if theyr unable to get dedired results from a doctor, they will obtain hormones off the street? In reality, which is where many of us are forced to live, nobody is coercing these people to do anything. If they were unable to find a supportive "community," they would transition in whstever way they could.

  55. "(5.) Biological females can never completely be male no matter how much "T" they take, or whether or not they get "top surgery"/"bottom surgery"/hysterectomy, etc. Nothing changes the genetics, and the ripped manly chest and masculine muscles come from "T" (a synthetic hormone) and surgery. "

    The only thing I'd change about your advice list to the 14 year old ftm is to not use words like "manly" and "masculine". It only reinforces gender stereotypes. I look forward to the day when being less "butch" (if one is a male) doesn't mean one is less of a "man", and being "butch" (if one is a female) doesn't mean one is less of a women.

    Other than that, excellent advice! I hope she reads it.

  56. Stop being bitter. Speaking as a straight bio female before you try to slander me. What satisfaction can you get from bullying 16 year old kids regardless of their gender, sex, sexuality etc. You need to grow up and stop being a bigot. You are a mean old woman!!
