Wondering what Michfest Leaders Think of My Last two Posts?

Posted both Michfest related posts this morning, you can see how interested/invested Michfest leaders are in addressing the MAN problem. Men's feelings and privileges are much more important than lesbian visibility, lesbian spaces and most of all lesbian safety.

  1. They are not valuing men over lesbians. They are valuing a semblance of sanity and reason over your batshit-crazy ass. They don't want to be associated with your disgusting, rabid mental illness, regardless of what they might think about the issue. This should be a wake-up call to you: nobody is with you except the hateful dregs of humanity. Have fun ladies!

  2. I was happy to see you were banned. It is SO deserved. Even the radfems of MichFest cannot stomach your extremist brand of unending transphobic and misandrist hatred. I am not sure how I feel about the WBW policy but I do know that your toxic diatribes add absolutely nothing to rational and constructive debate.

    WHERE WERE THE INDIGO GIRLS WHEN GALLUS MAG, RAD FEMS, AND LESBIANS WERE GETTING THREATS LIKE THE FOLLOWING: (THIS HAPPENED IN JANUARY 2013. IT’S MY UNDERSTANDING THAT JOHATHAN REID WAS BANNED FROM YOUTUBE BECAUSE OF VIOLENT THREATS DIRECTED TOWARDS “RAD FEMS”, AND LESBIANS.)

    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.

    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.

    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!”

    I think I may go to this Michfest thing, just for the sake of posting all kinds of revealing photos of the local deichs, in various states of dress, ALL OVER THE INTERWEBS….No building bridges here, just pure, HONEST, and unadulterated hatred and intolerance for my ideological blood-enemies.

  4. WHERE WERE THE INDIGO GIRLS WHEN TRANS ACTIVISTS ANTHONY CASEBEER AND MONICA ROBERTS WERE JOKING ABOUT BASHING IN THE HEAD OF A LESBIAN WITH A BASEBALL BAT? THIS REALLY HAPPENED. GOOGLE IT.

  6. WHERE WERE THE INDIGO GIRLS WHEN TRANSGENDER AND THEIR ALLIES WERE TELLING DIRT TO DIE IN A FIRE, "GET RAPED BY A BUNCH OF NIGGERS YOU OLD CROW", etc, etc.

    ".....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.

  7. MALES THREATEN LESBIANS AND THE INDIGO GIRLS REWARD THEM BY:

    (1.) GIVING IN TO THEIR DEMANDS TO OCCUPY A HISTORIC WOMEN'S MUSIC FESTIVAL HELD ON PRIVATE LAND, AND REWARDING MALES WHO THREATEN LESBIANS WITH VIOLENCE
    (2.) PROMISE TO GIVE ANY MONEY EARNED AT MICHIGAN WOMEN'S MUSIC FESTIVAL TO TRANSGENDER CAUSES

    THANK YOU VERY MUCH.....

    quote from the Indigo Girls...

    "We strongly feel that the time is long overdue for a change of intention, to one that states very plainly the inclusion of Trans Womyn. To us, this change of intention is the only path to a truly 'safe space' for womyn. […] Although we are playing the festival, we honor the current protest against MWF and hope that it will help move the community towards change. Any money that we make playing the Festival will go towards Trans Activism. We will make a statement from stage at the Festival in support of Trans Inclusion. We have made it clear that this will be our last time at the Festival until MWF shows visible and concrete signs of changing their intention."

    http://www.glaad.org/blog/indigo-girls-speak-out-about-anti-trans-policy-michigan-womyns-music-festival

    QUESTION:

    DOES THIS INCLUDE FUNDING TRANSGENDER RIGHTS ORGANIZATIONS AND/OR ATTORNEYS WHO HAVE PROVIDED LEGAL ASSISTANCE TO TRANSGENDER INMATES WHO SAY THEIR RIGHTS ARE BEING VIOLATED BECAUSE THE STATES THEY ARE INCARCERTED IN WON'T PAY FOR SEX REASSIGNMENT SURGERY/HORMONES, ETC? IS THIS ONE OF THE TRANSGENDER ACTIVISM CAUSES THE INDIGO GIRLS MIGHT FUND WITH ANY MONEY EARNED AT MICHFEST? DID ANY OF THE FOLLOWING CONVICTED MURDERERS OF WOMEN AND CHILD MOLESTERS RECIEVE ANY SUPPORT AND/OR LEGAL ASSISTANCE FROM TRANSGENDER ORGANIZATIONS?

    Sandy Jo Battista (David Megarry), a convicted sex offender who has molested girls, expects tax payers to pay for his feminizing hormones.

    http://pacer.mad.uscourts.gov/dc/cgi-bin/recentops.pl?filename=woodlock/pdf/battista071111.pdf

    Katheena Soneeya (Kenneth Hunt), who is trying to get the State of Massachusetts to pay for hair removal and sex reassignment surgery was convicted of murdering two women.

    http://pacer.mad.uscourts.gov/dc/cgi-bin/recentops.pl?filename=tauro/pdf/soneeya%20v%20spencer%20et%20al%20memo.pdf

    Robert Kosilek (Michelle Lynn Kosilek), then 39, was already transitioning when he killed his wife, Cheryl McCaul, during an argument. He strangled her to death, nearly decapitating her in the Mansfield, Massachusetts home they still shared.

    I HAVE AN EXCELLENT IDEA! INSTEAD OF GIVING ANY MONEY THEY GET FROM MICHFEST TO TRANS ACTIVISM CAUSES, WHY NOT GIVE EVERY CENT THEY GET FROM MICHFEST TO THE 13 YEAR OLD GIRL THAT TRANSGENDER CONVICTED CHILD MOLESTER, RONNIE DARNELL, BRUTALLY RAPED? ISN'T A 13 YEAR OLD GIRL MORE IMPORTANT THAN A TRANSGENDER CHILD RAPIST?

I WILL RESPECTFULLY REQUEST THAT THE INDIGO GIRLS AUTOGRAPH MY PRINTED COPY OF "RID FEM" AND MAIL IT BACK TO ME. INDEED, I THINK HUNDREDS OF COPIES OF "RID FEM" SHOULD BE PRINTED OUT AND HANDED TO WOMEN AT THE MICHIGAN WOMEN'S MUSIC FESTIVAL. THE FACES OF TWO LESBIAN FEMINISTS ARE ON THE CAN OF "RID FEM"...BOTH ARE AUTHORS AND COLLEGE PROFESSORS

  10. Dirt I mostly admire your blog and think you are spot on. That these men claiming to be women rape and murder women and children is of no thought to many of these people because they are very sick. I was saddened to the newest post but I was not surprised.

    The men who assert they are women silence women because they hate women with a passion. Women who do not play along must be stopped. And they have convinced a certain type of very uncritical women who often have some very superficial sense of right and wrong and really wants to be trendy . These men have attached themselves to the most likely to conform but still wants to imagine herself as radical. Then they kill and rape again and say women are rabid or crazy--very male. These men are insane. They will kill and rape again. They are too crazy to keep their shit together for long. A wider circle of people are starting to realize though. I think all women need to keep sounding the alarm. And need to block like we did in MD--gender id laws that erase women. You know that you are doing a very good thing here--you are.

  11. All the powers that be don't want to be seen as repressive or old-fashioned or sexist or whatever. Trans-types are oppressed and thus, women are supposed to nurture them It's BS, but until the worold wakes up and realizes that transitioning is a fad, like hula-hoops, we're stuck with them.

  12. I WISH THE TRANSGENDER COMMUNITY WOULD FINALLY MAKE UP IT'S MIND...DO THEY HOPE DIRT WILL DIE IN A FIRE, BE SHOT DEAD, OR BE RAPED BY A BUNCH OF NIGGERS?

    ...AND THEY SAY WOMEN HAVE TROUBLE MAKING UP THEIR MINDS...

    "I hope you die in a fire."

    Dirt..

    With my burnt hand I will write of the nature of fire. IB

    FTMs...in their own words...

    DIRT ALERT!!! Guess who i saw at Borders in Birmingham? The slimball was in the poetry section,propably finding some obscure passage to claim as her own. I think we should search every quote,to disarm this soldier of lies and hate.I took all I had to not walk up and punch her in her snide face.I think shed probably cry to the butch police. Nevertheless lets work harder and SMARTER to eliminate this waste where it belongs THE TOILET.

  14. The Michfest leaders are probably weary of the intimidation and threats from men in frocks and the handmaidens who worship their dicks.

    If the Indigo Girls plan on protesting, then their gig should be canceled. The organizers should be booking gigs with female artists who support women, not dick-pleasers.

    I also think more security is needed to escort these pricks off the land. Maybe some women can pack some stun-guns? If women start zapping these dicks, I guarantee the trans boys will think twice before violating women's boundaries again. Seriously, women, stop being so passive. I abhor violence but I also know violence is the only thing men respect and understand. Just think of these trans boys as your typical school yard bullies who steal your lunch money. Until women are able to physically stop them, these dicks will continue to bully women and steal their lunch money. That's just how men are wired. But they're also the biggest cowards on earth. The moment women do stand up to these dicks and knock them on their arrogant, entitled male asses, is when trans will stop bullying women and stop invading their spaces.

    As for the traitorous women who sell out to these dicks, they should be tarred and feathered.

  15. There are so many aspects of this issue that I just can't wrap my head around. ALL the M2Ts in America can't be murderous autogynephilic lesbophobes. Where are all the fem gay boys who have got themselves "fixed" because they thought it would make their life better/easier, but have no interest in picking quarrels with real women? Don't THEY have anything to say about the behaviour of those other crazies? After all, it must reflect badly on them too. Or are they all keeping their heads down baking cookies for their "straight" boyfriends?
    As for the pricks themselves, they may aspire to an artificial hyperfeminine "ideal", but the first thing that strikes me about their actual behaviour is how, not just masculine, but HYPERMASCULINE it is. I know they themselves are well beyond the reach of reason, but can't their allies in the gay and lesbian movement, at least, see how batshit crazy they are, and put some kind of brake on them?
    These are real questions, not just rhetoric. If anyone has even a glimmer of an answer to them, I'd be interested.

  16. petre - Right. Not all of the M2T are murderous autogynephilic lesbophobes. The thought is obscene. The fact that the feminist lesbian community focuses on Blanchard's theory of autogynephilia is pretty silly, considering it only speaks to a very small handful of disturbed trans people. Blanchard is the same man who oversaw shock therapy treatments to cure gays and lesbians of their homosexuality at CAMH in Toronto. I wouldn't necessarily be so quick to quote anything the man says as gospel.

    There are clearly many different types of trans people. I certainly wasn't (and am not) gay, or a fem gay boy, or an autogynephile, yet I'm post-operative M2T who is still "straight" (attracted to females). I don't participate in the trans (or greater alphabet soup) community, and feel no kinship with them whatsoever. They're a pretty embarassing outfit to be associated with. I have plenty to say about their behaviour, but what does it matter? They would be quick to demonize me the same as they would be quick to demonize you. The same happens here -- if you're not radical enough, or the wrong wave of feminist, or not as feminist or lesbian as these folks want you to be. Groupthink is dangerous no matter what group it stems from.

    I do keep my head down, yes. I don't walk around wearing trans on my sleeve. I'm certainly not home baking cookies for my "straight" boyfriend -- that would be difficult when I can't bake to save my life and am not attracted to men. I run my own successful small business, and volunteer countless hours in the community that I live in. That's why I don't understand these transtards that walk around whining about public bathrooms and the like -- just get on with your life! If you're going to act like a woman, do it and get on with it. I'm far more concerned with putting food on my table, being a good person, maybe finding a partner somewhere down the line than I am about what toilet I should pee in.

    The, dare I say, "normal" trans people are the ones you never hear of, from or about, because we're out there in the world trying to live our lives in comfort and peace with the world and ourselves. There's no fucked up woman-hating agenda to strip lesbian or female identity. If anything, I'm quite empathetic towards feminism -- as I deal with many of the issues talked about on this blog -- the male gaze, being objectified, talked down to, talked over, ignored, not taken seriously, paid less. The list goes on. Just for being perceived as female. If we think it's bad now, how must it have been to grow up like that from birth? It's unconscionable.

  17. right on, Avid Reader. You can think all transexuals are confused 16 year old lesbians if you want. There are heaps of us walking around living our lives that you would never suspect. It's just like people asking "why are all lesbians so ugly?". They're not, just the only people you recognize as blatantly lesbian are those that stand out.

  18. Blanchard is the same man who oversaw shock therapy treatments to cure gays and lesbians of their homosexuality at CAMH in Toronto.

    I don't know that much about Blanchard, and I haven't studied his work that much. As I understand it, autognyephelia is recognized by many people not just Blanchard. To state that an element of autogynephelia doesn't exist with many MTF transsexuals is like saying that the Pope isn't Catholic, or like saying bears don't go poo in the woods.

    Blanchard is the same man who oversaw shock therapy treatments to cure gays and lesbians of their homosexuality at CAMH in Toronto. I wouldn't necessarily be so quick to quote anything the man says as gospel.

    THE TRANSSEXUAL COMMUNITY SHOULDN'T SAY ANYTHING ABOUT ERASING GAY AND LESBIAN IDENTITY BECAUSE AS I TYPE THIS, SEX REASSIGNMET SURGERY IS BEING USED TO CASTRATE OR "FIX" GAY MEN IN IRAN. IT'S NOT LIKE IT HASN'T BEEN GOING ON FOR SOMETIME. Iran will help pay for sex reassignment surgery, but homosexuality is punishable by death. I believe they give lesbians so many lashes for the first offense, then execute them along with the gay men if they are caught twice.

    It's a fact that historically 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.

    In western countries, we could be carrying out a more subtle form of gay and lesbian eugencis. With puberty suppressing drugs, cross gender hormones at age 16, and SRS at 18 (16 in some countries), we have ways to fix the little tomboys and sissy boys. There is a large body of research that shows that many gender non-comforming children eventually grow up to be gay men and lesbians provided they are left alone. In western countries, it's not a matter of whether or not puberty suppressing drugs, cross gender hormones, and SRS is erasing lesbian and gay identity. Rather, it's a matter of degree or how many.

    Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad infamously said at a Columbia University event in New York in 2007: "In Iran, we don't have homosexuals, like in your country."


    NO HOMOSEXUALS IN IRAN...NOT EVEN ONE HOMOSEXUAL, BUT according to the BBC, the Iranian regime recently made sexual reassignment even more accessible by announcing that health insurance companies must cover the full cost of sex-change operations, which can cost upward of $3,000.

    According to the BBC, Iran performs more sex-change operations than any country in the world except for Thailand; the surgery industry has attracted patients from all over the Middle East and as far away as Eastern Europe. Official statistics for 2007 put the number of transsexuals in Iran between 15,000and 20,000 people, with unofficial estimates suggesting many more -- up to 150,000, the Guardian reports.

    GO QUOTE Ahmadinejad AND THE Ruhollah Mostafavi Musavi Khomeini

    NO HOMOS AND FAGS IN IRAN, BUT THEY WILL CUT YOUR TESTICLES OFF AND MAKE YOU A WOMAN...AND EVEN PAY FOR IT.

    Due to this fatwa, issued in 1987, transsexual women in Iran have been able to live as women until they can afford surgery, have surgical reassignment, have their birth certificates and all official documents issued to them in their new gender, and get married to men.

  19. So, Anonymous, you associate being recognizable as "blatantly lesbian" with ugliness? Why? Sounds like you equate female beauty with conforming to male-constructed feminine stereotypes: the only acceptable gay women are girly "lipstick-lesbians". What about gay men? Are we all supposed to be "straight-acting" regular joes? Seems like you want to keep us "cis" people in a pretty tight gender straitjacket too. At least Avid Reader's comment was a bit more thoughtful and respectful.

  20. There's no fucked up woman-hating agenda to strip lesbian or female identity. If anything, I'm quite empathetic towards feminism.

    Is this the same "feminism" that was responsible for the "Overcoming the Cotton Ceiling: Breaking Down Sexual Barriers for Queer Transwomen" which, by the way, excluded lesbians. The purpose of "Overcoming the Cotton Ceiling: Breaking Down Sexual Barriers for Queer Transwomen" was to re-educate lesbians into liking, no, actully adoring, the "lady stick". Lady stick is slang for the penis on a MTF.

    Trans "feminism" shamelessly co-opts second wave feminist term "glass ceiling" and twists it into shaming lesbains for not wanting penis in a skirt. Yes, it really happened.

    "The term cotton ceiling is a reference to the “glass ceiling” that second wave feminist identified in the workforce, wherein women could only advance so high in the workforce but could not break through into positions of power and authority. The cotton represents underwear, signifying sex....

    Subject: Re: What’s the cotton ceiling?
    Thanks. So, just to make sure I understand this, a trans woman with a penis, and who has no desire to have a sex change, is not male bodied – correct?

    On Mon, Mar 12, 2012 at 2:02 PM, [redacted trans] wrote:
    There is nothing inherently male about a woman’s body, unless she identified things about it as male herself. So, no, I do not consider trans women with penises to be male-bodied, unless that is how they identify."


    http://factcheckme.wordpress.com/2012/03/13/the-cotton-ceiling-really/

    THE LESBIAN PHOBIC AND MISOGYNISTTIC "OVERCOMING THE COTTON CEILING" DIDN'T HAVE ONE DAMN THING TO DO WITH FEMINISM. INDEED, IT WAS THE SHAMELESS CO-OPTION OF AN OLD SECOND WAVE FEMINIST TERM "GLASS CEILING" (acess to higher levels of employment and opportunity) COUPLED WITH SEXISM AND HATRED TOWARDS LESBIANS. LESBIANS OWE SOME KIND OF POLITICAL OBLIGATION TO SERVICE THE "LADY STICK" (PENIS ON A MTF).

    By the way, biological males who identity as transgender have raped and molested girls and women. Some even expect taxpayers to pay for their female hormones and surgery while being incarcerated for rape and murder of women. MTFs are NOT any worse than other men as far as misogyny and violence goes, but I wish to heck they would stop pretending they are female. They are NOT female.

    sometimes i get so irritated by people who try to belittle me for being trans. especially women. the thing that gets me is that they’re always disgusting looking, or you know, just plain ugly.

    the only thought that ever comes to my mind is “i may have a dick, but i make a hotter woman than you do. so what exactly does that make you?”

    but, instead, i remain calm. i laugh in their face, or make a joke out of them in some other way. you know, real sly-like. i act like it doesn’t bother me that a neanderthal of a woman is trying to lessen my worth, or my femininity. because let’s be honest… what do they know about any of that anyways?

    regardless, it still takes every fiber of my being not to bash them in their putrid face with a brick.

    Not all trans people are like that. I don't know why so many people that are (or act on the internet?) so disturbed end up identifying this way.

    "Not all trans people are like that" perhaps they are not all violent or to that extreme but they are all "like that" you included and either you can't see it--which makes you a wacko or you just deny it which makes you a manipulative prick.

    The second a man expects or more likely he demands a women see him as a female, use a female pronoun--He is just like that. You are a male and you call yourself a lesbian--you are just like that. Take your gas lighting crap and stick in your bind pouch. I will explain this as simply as I can-- Women have their perceptions and those keep us alive. So it isn't all about you or the fact that you are a nice guy all gussied up. You assume there is some social contract that that we have entered into with you by which we agree to pay homage and respect your "issue" your delusion, your fetiish. Well, no we have not made any such agreement. Is is not nice really not nice and very mean to not bow to a male delusion? Maybe, but too bad. And to prove my point then you jack asses start hurling "transphobic at women to try to shame and gaslight women into bending to you very male will. Men rape they kill and we are not playing let's try to figure out who the good guy is. That you say you are a lesbian--makes you just like them. This is called a mind fuck. Don't fuck with womens minds because yours is fucked--NOT OUR PROBLEM

    You are a male heterosexual. If your shrink wants to go along with you fine, that's why you pay them, if your friends want to go along, fine. If your boss and co-workers are forced to go along, well that's no doubt unpleasant for them. Personally would file a law suit if I had to share a bathroom with you sir. I would call the cops a scream my head off if I found you in any womens' space. Women do not have to trade their accurate perceptions to honor or respect your "perceptions" of yourself. Not playing along sir.

    No, they are not all "like that". Sweeping generalizations make you look like a jerk. It's no different than "all [insert group of people] are [insert general statement about them]". I don't deny that trans people "like that" exist, but I'm certainly no wacko nor a manipulative prick. I don't understand why you need to call me names during an otherwise civilized conversation. You make an awful lot of assumptions about me based soley on the fact that I am M2T and no more. That's not cool. Your hatred precedes you, and it makes it a little bit difficult to take you seriously, even when you are upset about genuine and serious issues.

    I have never expected or demanded that anyone see me as female, or policed "pronouns" that people use to refer to me. I don't misappropriate identity and call myself a "lesbian". It's not physically possible for me to be. (I do however say when asked that I am attracted to women, because that is true. I am. If somebody put a gun to my head and forced me to label myself, I'd probably use queer. I have no interest in being 100% forthright about being trans and attacked because someone else is unable to fathom why I've done this to myself.) I assume nothing -- I am in total agreement that you can't force others to participate in self-delusion. I've said so in the comments section on this blog before. I've never used the word "transphobic". The word and the people who use it upset, amuse and anger me in equal measure. I have no interest in fucking with anyone's head or perpetuating fetish and delusion. If people perceive me as female, so be it. If they perceive me as male, so be it. I'm not some wackadoodle teetering on the brink of a "gender identity" crisis every time someone says "she" or "sir".

    I don't see any shrinks. The vast majority of my friends have no idea that I'm M2T. I'm my own boss, running my own retail storefront business. I am deeply involved with many volunteer, community and business organizations. My life is filled with happiness, family and fun. I don't know what the fuss is about with trans people collecting stamps on their bathroom passports -- do they go around perpetually filled with liquids so they can hit as many toilets as they can in a given day? I don't know.

    I am M2T because if I hadn't gone through with it, I'd have died. I didn't want to die. I wanted to be here on the planet for however much time I have alotted to me. I wanted to live, and love and laugh. To feel "normal", or my interpretation of it. To be able to wake up in the morning, stretch and enjoy the sunshine. A thousand things. A million things even. None of those things had anything to do with bathrooms, women, lesbians, identity or michfest. I'm just an otherwise normal, well adjusted person trying to go about living my life as best I can, with as little impact on the world around me as possible. Is that so bad? Do I deserved to be lumped together with murderers and rapists just for the mere fact that I exist? I don't think that I do. I think it's terrible that your experiences have brought you to a place where you think that I do.

    All I can say is that we aren't all those people -- and that you're unlikely to know you've met those trans people, because they aren't out there being trans -- they're out there living.

    STOP DENYING ALL THE CRIME STATISTICS THAT CLEARLY SHOW THAT THE MAJORITY OF REGISTERED SEX OFFENDERS ARE MALE.

    COMPARE 140,000 TO 1,500. THIS IS A 138,500 DIFFERENCE. ALSO, THE CRIME STATISTICS DON'T STATE WHAT SEXUAL ORIENTATION THESE WOMEN IDENTIFY AS. THEREFORE, WE MUST ASSUME THAT THE FEW FEMALE SEX OFFENDERS THAT ARE ACTUALLY INCARCERATED ARE JUST AS LIKELY TO BE HETEROSEXUAL OR BISEXUAL AS LESBIAN.

    Center for Sex Offender Management
    A Project of the Office of Justice Programs, U.S. Department of Justice

    Female Sex Offenders
    March 2007

    National criminal justice statistics reveal that of all adults and juveniles who come to the attention of the authorities for sex crimes, females account for less than 10% of these cases (FBI, 2006). Specifically, arrests of women represent only 1% of all adult arrests for forcible rape and 6% of all adult arrests for other sex offenses.

    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.


    http://www.csom.org/pubs/female_sex_offenders_brief.pdf

    DO THE CRIME STATISTICS MAGICALLY CHANGE BECAUSE A BIOLOGICAL MALE IDENITFIES AS TRANSGNEDER, OR STARTS CALLING HIMSELF SHERRI, SUE, BETTY, OR WHATEVER. NO, THEY DO NOT. MANY CROSS DRESSERS/TRANSGENDER MALES STILL HAVE INTACT MALE GENITALIA HIDDEN UNDER THE SKIRT. SOME CONVICTED TRANSGENDER RAPISTS SUCH AS SHERRI (RICHARD) MASBRUCH HAD THEIR PENIS WHEN THEY RAPED WOMEN. SOME LIKE DARNELL, SANDY JO BATTISTA, AND KOSILEK MURDER WOMEN OR MOLEST CHILDREN THEN EXPECT TAX PAYERS TO PAY FOR THEIR SEX CHANGE AND HORMONES WHILE IN PRISON. MASBRUCH NEVER DID UNDERGO SRS. HE SELF MUTILATED HIS OWN PENIS IN PRISON AND HAD TO HAVE IT REMOVED. THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA IN ITS WISDOM SENT HIM TO A WOMEN'S PRISON BECAUSE MASBRUCH SAYS HE "FEELS LIKE A WOMAN" AFTER SADISTICALLY SHOCKING WOMEN WITH AN ELECTRICAL WIRE BEFORE RAPING THEM. IT'S ALL IN THE COURT RECORDS. ALL MEN HAVE TO DO IS MURDER OR RAPE WOMEN THEN SAY THEY "FEEL LIKE A WOMAN" INSIDE. PERHAPS THEY WILL BE SENT TO A WOMEN'S PRISON LIKE SHERRI MASBRUCH.

    Biological males who identify as transgender are NOT more likely to commit rape or sexual assault, but THIS IS WHAT THE TRANSGENDER COMMUNITY RESUSES TO ADMIT. THEY ARE STILL MALE AND MALES ARE MORE LIKELY TO BE REGISTERED SEX OFFENDERS. THIS IS MY POINT. Women are supposed to believe that there is a special kind of biological male who claims he "feels like a woman inside", and he is completely harmless. I mean he is completely harmless, never sexist in the least, and they even say they know how women feel. Since they have never been women, how do they know how women feel? I hate to say this, but he is no different than other males. He is no better or worse than other biological males. Women must let these special men who say they "feel like a woman inside" into our women's space, restrooms, locker rooms, etc. NO, WE DON'T HAVE TO. TELL THIS TO THE MOTHER OF THE 13 YEAR OLD GIRL THAT TRANSGENDER CONVICTED RAPIST RONNY DARNELL RAPED. DARNELL SAYS HE "FEELS LIKE A WOMAN" WHILE HE SITS IN PRISON WAITING FOR HIS HORMONE SHOTS HE EXPECTS THE TAXPAYERS TO PAY FOR. HE REALLY SAYS HE IS TRAPPED IN THE WRONG BODY. GOOGLE "RONNY DARNELL" AND "13 YEAR OLD GIRL".

    What kind of horse poo is this. ALL THE CRIME STATISTICS SHOW THAT MALES ARE MORE LIKELY TO BE REGISTERED SEX OFFENDERS. WOMEN OF ALL RACES, AGES, SEXUAL ORIENTATIONS HAVE BEEN RAPED. CORRECTIVE RAPE OF LESBIANS IS WELL DOCUMENTED IN SOUTH AFRICA. IT'S NOT SAFE FOR ANY WOMAN TO WALK DOWN THE STREET AT NIGHT. IT'S NOT WOMEN WHO ARE DOING IT OR WHO ARE RESPONSIBLE. THIS IS THE WAY THE TRANSGENDER COMMUNITY WORKS. THEY NEVER, EVER, EVER, EVER CONFRONT THE REALITY. THEY LACK THE COURAGE AND INTEGRITY TO NAME THE AGENT, OR WHO IS REALLY RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL THE HORRIFIC VIOLENCE BEING CARRIED OUT AGAINST THE FEMALE SEX. INSTEAD, THEY FEEL SO SMUG AND SELF-RIGHTEOUS ATTACKING WOMEN. (1.) THE MURDERS OF MTFs ARE MOSTLY COMMITTED BY MALES, USUALLY STRAIGHT MALES. DO THEY GO AFTER MALES FOR THE KILLING OF THEIR OWN KIND. OH, HELL NO. THEY ARE TOO TIMID TO EVER TRY THIS. IT'S THE FAULT OF THE "RAD FEMS", LESBIANS, DYKES, ETC. WOMEN WHO QUESTION TRANSGENDER AND REFUSE TO BUY INTO THE IDEA THAT THEY ARE "WOMEN INSIDE" TELL THEM WHAT THEY DON'T WANT TO HEAR. DISAGREEING WITH THEM IS "TRANSPHOBIC", AND SUZANNE MOORE CAN TESTIFY TO THIS. (2.) ALL THE CRIME STATISTICS SHOW THAT MALES ARE MORE LIKELY TO BE CONVICTED SEX OFFENDERS. DO THE "FEMINISTS" THAT SUPPORT TRANSGENDER GO AFTER THE MALES. HELL, NO. THEY BLAME LESBIANS, "RAD FEMS" OR WHOEVER IS HANDY OR AVAILABLE.

    NEVER NAME THE REAL PROBLEM, OR EVEN ACKNOWLEDGE IT BECAUSE STANDING UP TO MALES IS FAR MORE INTIMIDATING. THIS IS WHY 6' 180 LB. MTFs, SKIRT AND ALL, FEEL SO SUPERIOR AND SMUG WHEN GETTING INTO THE FACE OF A WOMAN HALF HIS SIZE. A NON-TRANS MALE WOULD HAND HIS ASS TO HIM, AND IT WOULDN'T TAKE VERY LONG. IT WOULD BE OVER IN A SECOND. COWARDS TYPICALLY ATTACK THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE NO POWER, AND WOMEN HAVE LITTLE, IF ANY POWER.

    Why in holy heck do they keep bringing up homosexuality when "transitioning" has historically been used to erase gay and lesbian identity. It's going on in Iran as several people have pointed out, and it's probably occurring in western countries, albeit on a more subtle level.

    Not only do they conveniently ignore some rather unpleasant facts about "transitioning" erasing gay and lesbian identity, they allude to black history as if it has anything at all to do with Colleen Francis and his penis. LISTEN UP BLACK FOLKS...YOU GOT YOUR HISTORY ALL WRONG...LET COLLEEN FRANCIS EXPLAIN IT TO YOU!

    "This is not 1959 Alabama. We don’t call police for drinking from the wrong water fountain.”

    quote from Colleen (Clay Scott) Francis


    http://www.kirotv.com/news/news/transgender-woman-told-leave-womens-locker-room/nSWT4/

    THIS IS A DIRECT QUOTE FROM 45 YEAR OLD, WHITE, HETEROSEXUAL, EX-MILITARY MALE, COLLEEN FRANCIS AFTER THE MOTHER OF A 17 YEAR OLD HIGH SCHOOL GIRL COMPLAINED THAT HER DAUGHTER FELT UNCOMFORTABLE SEEING MR. FRANCIS PARADE HIS PENIS AROUND THE WOMEN'S LOCKER ROOM IN OLYMPIA, WASHINGTON. I'm sure the brave black souls who were doused with high pressure fire hoses, beaten, and jailed are all rolling over in their graves. Apparently, according to Mr. Francis, not being able to expose his penis to high school girls is the equivalent of Jim Crow laws. When Mr. Francis made his brave stand in the women's locker room, penis and all, it was exactly like what black people went through on the Edmund Pettis Bridge. Actually, the black people got the crap beat out of them, and the only thing that Mr. Francis managed to do was to intentionally frighten and embarrass teenage girls. No one said that Mr. Francis couldn't use the pool. He could have used the men's facilities since he still had his male genitalia. He was allowed to use the pool, but he should NOT have been in the women's locker room. Mr. Francis is a middle aged retired, heterosexual, white male. Who has more power and privilege? Is it white males or teenage girls?

    To accommodate Mr. Francis, the girls who didn't want to change with him used a smaller locker room next to the main locker room at the pool. A middle aged creep exposes his penis to high school girls, and it's the high school girls who end up leaving the women's locker room.

Don't THEY have anything to say about the behaviour of those other crazies? "

    I think they're doing what most people are doing: just living their lives. I don't feel the need to speak out against someone in my group when they make stupid, shitty or even evil statements or threats. It should go without saying that they're scum if they're willing to level death and rape threats at women, and I don't believe that reflects on me. Every group has assholes. Some groups have lots of assholes, but that doesn't mean everyone in that group is an asshole, nor are they obligated to publicly (at least public enough for the people sitting in judgement of them for 'keeping their heads down' to see), any more than a Muslim is required to speak out against the actions of a bunch of terrorists they don't know or agree with.

    I don't believe in rewarding males who terrorize females. It's not like threatening and actually harming women hasn't been going on for centuries. The people who would cave into transgender male demands to occupy a traditional women's music festival held once a year on private land are just supporting males who threaten women. Yes, every group has assholes, but why reward them?

    EVEN SOME MTFs THEMSELVES KNOW THIS ISN'T ABOUT THE MUSIC, CAMPING OUT, OR FEMINISM. THIS KIND AND THOUGHTFUL TRANS PERSON SAYS THE FOLLOWING:

    ”Thank you Dirt, for mentioning the difference between gay males who transition and autogynephiles. I am a member of the former and have no interest in women other than friendship. I have many female friends who have been great to me, accepting me as one of their own and including me in female-only conversations and activities. Sadly, it is through this inclusion that the differences between them and myself have become all too clear to me. Yes, there is a huge difference between growing up as a female and growing up as a male.

    As a trans woman, I do experience many of the same kinds of discrimination that females experience, and while I am attracted to men, the male gaze and unwelcome come-ons can be very tiring. The same goes for being considered less-capable because of my gender. Because I experience these things first-hand, I am sympathetic and supportive of feminism.

    At the same time, I am well aware that females experience many things that I don't. While I might be raped (and have been), I will never have to experience the fear that I might be pregnant because of it. I have never experienced a menstrual cycle, nor will I experience menopause. Most importantly, while I can go on and on about the pain I experienced in childhood, I never had anyone limit me or tell me that I'm not good enough because of my sex. Instead I was always encouraged to do my best and told that if I did so, I could go far.

    Just as I enjoy spending some time with others who have had experiences similar to mine, I can appreciate the need for females to do likewise.

    The sad fact is that not all trans women feel as I do. For them, everything is about their desires, their so-called "need" for validation as women.

    Now I realize that there are those who will say there really is no difference between myself and those who want to invade MichFest, but I disagree.... the difference is that I support the autonomy of females..... not because I expect a pat on the head, but simply because it is the right thing to do.

    I hope the organizers of MicheFest never give in to these invaders. I also hope that these transgender invaders will finally learn to respect other people's boundaries."

    The sad fact is that not all trans women feel as I do. For them, everything is about their desires, their so-called "need" for validation as women. They perceive attending MichFest as some sort of tranny merit badge. That is all it really is for them. Not that they enjoy the music, or sleeping on the ground, or hearing about female experiences, or even supporting feminism. No, for them it is all about earning that imaginary merit badge in womanhood..... and maybe hooking up with a lesbian (another merit badge)."
