Female Fetishizers and the End of Gays and Lesbians

It is straight white men like this
 and this

 and this

 and this

 and this

and this
and this
and this
and this
 
who have fetishize "woman" for their own sexual fantasies/pleasures by means of medical and legal transition that lie behind the living murder of gay and lesbian youth today like this
and this

and this

and this.
The Gay and Lesbian community needs to serious wake up to itself and focus on the potential genocide of the future of Gays and Lesbians which has been in genocidal jeopardy since the earliest days of the Male Medical Machine. How many of adult gays and lesbians reading this, were you two or three or four today, would have had parents that would have homophobically transitioned you rather than allowed you to grow up gay or lesbian???

  1. Again, I blame the psychiatric industry for a lot of this. There is no way someone can be "born trans" seeing as how all sex roles are artificially constructed. A little boy who likes wearing pink dresses isn't "a girl on the inside" and a little girl who enjoys plays with toy trucks isn't a "boy on the inside". Our society is so gendered in this regard that we so eagerly accept the notion of "trans" without much thought. Who knows what implications this will have for the culture at large.

  2. These are quotes from the article, "The Left Hand of Darkness" by Julian Vigo. Ms. Vigo is a scholar, film-maker and human rights consultant.

    "Tauni also discusses how as an adolescent she had identified as transgender because there was social pressure to conform as well as to disassociate with feminist politics of the 70s and 80s. Tauni observed first-hand the disintegration of the lesbian community in Australia and now questions if transgenderism is becoming a means of bypassing homosexuality because of the notion that gender requires norms and stereotypes: ‘The ideologies were all transgender and queer was being pushed onto us. I never wanted to get married, I had very strong ideas about my role in society and didn’t like the way I saw women being treated. Now the vibrant lesbian community is all gone so we do understand what it is like to be trans, and we understand what it is like to be boxed into gender. We just disagree that being transgender is the way to resolve this issue.’ Like every feminist I interviewed, Tauni echos that gender needs to be dismantled and that transgender individuals are perpetuating stereotypes that hurt women. More worrying to Tauni, however, is how lesbians are being pressured to transition, often by their partners: ‘There is this particular aesthetic you have to be—it is the coolest thing to be trans. The hottest lesbian now is the trans man and so a lot of lesbians are going this way. The other lesbians can pressure their partners to become trans. They fetishise other trans men and then they pressure their partners through their sexuality.’ Noting some of the changes in Australian society Tauni adds: ‘What I am really concerned about is that young girls are being channeled into sex reassignment rather than encouraged into thinking about lesbianism. Children in Australia are exposed to transsexuality before being exposed to ideas of being lesbian and gay. Children in Australia at the age of ten are put on hormone blockers and they don’t know at that age what their beliefs will be like as an adult. It is a human rights violation that these drugs are being pushed onto children and vulnerable adults. Essentially they are treating a socially-created disorder—treating a social illness with drugs.’ Tauni maintains that gender stereotypes are being confirmed by the movement to transition and views this sort of coercion as dangerous to everyone, especially little boys and girls who ought to be free to experiment."

  3. More quotes from "The Left Hand of Darkness" by Julian Vigo.

    "Jeffreys also takes issue with the ‘transgendering’ of children that is currently taking place in the UK and other countries: ‘I have written that the transgendering of children is a modern form of eugenics. What happened, of course, after the end of the Second World War was that certain forms of eugenics were enormously common in the United States, Sweden and so forth. There took place the sterilising of those who were seen as ‘unfit’—the vast majority in Sweden were women. Also, of course, was the sterilising and lobotomising of homosexuals and so on. After the Second World War some of that came into disrepute and it was considered not reasonable to do that. It still goes on: in Australia there is still the sterilising of girls who are seen as intellectually disabled and there are big campaigns to stop that, but it is still going on. What I am arguing is that the transgendering of children now is simply a modern form of eugenics which is not being recognised as eugenics. There are children who are seen as ‘not fitting’ into the correct gender and the correct sexuality who are being subjected to sterilisation and other terrible forms of physical treatment and surgery.’ Jeffreys discusses the contemporary treatments of gender-blocking hormones with children in Australia such as the case of a boy who was diagnosed as ‘transgendered’ at seven years of age because he wanted to wear a dress to Phantom of the Opera. There is great concern expressed by many feminists to include Jeffreys that this kind of forced transitioning of children is meant to conspire with parents’ inability to deal with the reality of the sex of their child (ie. that some parents really wanted to have a girl rather than a boy) or, in other cases, to collude with parents who are unable to cope with the reality that gender binaries are not neatly divisible in packages of blue/pink or truck/barbie. Also of great weight is the fact that many feminists and gay rights activists worry that parents are being offered the choice of transgendering their child because of their fear that their child might be homosexual."

  4. "The Left Hand of Darkness" by Julian Vigo

    "Similarly, some trans people have opted for a trans identity over a homosexual identity because of their own issues of coming out to their families. I have spoken with several transgendered people who have decided to de-transition back and while these individuals certainly do not represent the majority of trans experiences, they feel their voices are being obfuscated by the ‘official’ trans narrative. Heath Atom Russell tells me that when she was sixteen living in Orange County, California, she came out as trans rather than as a lesbian due to social and familial circumstances: ‘After spending time online and not having many real life friends, I ended up going to the local bookstore with my mom. I met a person who identified as a male with long hair and facial hair. My mom turned to me and asked if that was what I wanted to be. I felt this experience mirrored with many people. It was easier for me to come out as a guy than to come out as lesbian. ’ Russell continues, ‘I can safely say that I didn’t feel direct pressure, but you do hear ‘that is such a dude way to act.’ As a young child before the age of kindergarden, I remember one of my mom’s friends saying that I walked like my dad. As I grew older I still walked like my father and my mother taught me to walk like her, moving my butt and hips. In school I was physically assaulted because I had a ‘boy’s haircut.’ My high school had a conservative religious edge to it and so I came out as wanting to transition. I felt like I had more acceptance for transitioning as a man than for coming out as a lesbian.’ Dani Tauni contextualises this experience: ‘Women are always taught to hate their bodies from day one. Especially girls who are victims of childhood sexual abuse. They are trying to cut their femaleness off because they view it as a vulnerability. It is a body dysmorphia because they hate their bodies and they do this through transitioning. For women and lesbians it is hatred and mutilation of the body. Lesbians who are in the contemporary queer scene wish to conform to a specific aesthetics and if you are trans, you have more value as a person. Many lesbians feel that transsexuality is the way to go—the boy-girl. The uniform of this group is the way of transitioning—a lot of young women who hate their bodies go on the scene to internalise the hatred of their bodies. It is coming from a space of transitioning from oppression to maleness.’"

  6. How about you provide some actual facts in your rant. Who are the people you're posting pictures of? Without context or explanation or knowledge of them and their actual lives, those pictures are meaningless.

    How about you acknowledge the trans women who were never gay,the trans men who were never lesbian, and who are now living ordinary lives as women and men.

    How about you stop making totally unsubstantiated statements about people you do not know.

    How about you stop being a bigot.

    How about you leave trans people in peace to get on with their lives.

    Your obsession with trans people is starting to look pretty pathological. Maybe you should get some help with that.

    Why does it always disintegrate into:

    a.) extremely misogynistic rants directed towards women,

    (b.) especially nasty homophobic/lesbian phobic rants about lezbos, dykes, or bulldykes, etc., or

    (c.) some combination of both (a.) and (b.)

    They can't stand women expressing any independent thought or opinion outside of the standard transgender talking points. The deeper we dig into what we are seeing, the more utterly misogynistic and homophobic it is.

    ...BUT THE IRANIAN GOVERNMENT WILL PAY FOR SEX REASSIGNMENT SURGERY...

    It's a historical fact that gay men and lesbians have been subject to forced confinement in mental institutions, shock therapy, lobotomies, and other barbaric treatment. This has happened in western countries. While such treatment is frowned on today, such cruel treatment of gay men and lesbians still occurs in some countries of the world. Actually, in countries such as Iran, homosexuality is punishable by death. The Iranian government has no problem at all with executing homosexuals. I read that lesbians get so many lashes for the first offense, but after the second or third offence, they are executed along with the gay men. Despite executing homosexuals, the Iranian government will pay for sex reassignment surgery.

  16. Amazing how those who would eliminate transsexuals feel so insulted by someone wanting to eliminate gays and lesbians.

    Sex reassignment surgery is not a human being. They are surgical procedures not actual people. Extensive plastic surgery on one's healthy genitals and breasts and/or a life time of cross gender hormones is something that is done to people. Certain intrepid people throughout history have always stepped outside of the boundaries of traditional sex roles. This is nothing new. They weren't always called transgender and they certainly all didn't get surgery or hormones. Puberty suppressing drugs on 13 and 14 year old children is relatively new and it frightens me on so many levels. I believe that the eugenics of children who don't fit neatly into sex based gender roles comes with ethical issues no one wants to address.

    Transgender does not own a patent on all gender non-conformity both past and present.

    Wrong. A picture is worth 1000s words. Scary kid lives destroyed for attention and profit.
    Here’s an idea if you want to be left in peace (which you don’t because this is your life: a gaping rabbit hole of cyber righteousness and attention seeking so you can do what you love best, which is to level your trite misogynist insults and repeat Trans speak ad nauseaum) don’t visit the blog. How’s that? All the peace you want. This is an excellent post. Your visiting and leaving the same silly comment on each post (a rant—look that a word trying to insult well reasoned points—what cab I say, vocabulary, get some. Not everything is a rant not matter how much you say it is) what is certainly more than a tad pathological, (but if you're Trans than you are no stranger to pathology are you?) is you constantly repeating the same old tiered comments and demands. Dirt is not going to stop, I am not stopping and either are others—give it up. You don’t dictate to women. Listen up; we do not take marching orders from you.

    Then why should we listen to any of you, either? You keep trying to tell us who wer are, what we are and how we live, yet you know nothing about us. You can't even produce a coherent argument. You can't respond to any of the points I've made, so you go off on some tirade about pathology. You seem determined to make trans people seem inhuman, so that it's okay to insult and denigrate us, and then you cry if we hit back.

    And why should I or anyone who opposes your views sit silent while you and your kind demonizes trans women as perverts and rapists, lies about trans men, and generally talks trash against trans people in general. I don't agree with radfems, but you don't see me making post after post of inflammatory, derogatory, bias garbage about radfems or their lives?

    You keep assuming I'm a trans woman because I defend the rights of trans woman to be treated like other people. Well, you're 100% wrong. I defend them because they don't deserve your shit, because the vast majority are ordinary decent people who have as much right as you to fair treatment and freedom from being harassed and insulted and called freaks and fakes by people like you. If you call that a rant, so be it, I don't care. I do care that you are defaming an entire class of people just because you don't like how they live.

    Every one of the people in those 'cross-dressing' pictures is or was a real human being with a life and feelings. Without context, we don't know whether they are trans women, crossdressers (which is not a crime or a perversion), drag artists, theatre performers, actors, guys dressing up for a lark, men who live/lived as women, or anything else. We don't know how many of them considered themselves women, if they were gay or straight (Dirt stating they were straight is not proof of anything but her prejudice).

    All you see is what you want to see. Where we see real people, you see a pervert boogyman. Maybe you'd like to tell April Ashley, holder of the MBE she's a pervert, too. Gpood luck with that.

    You need to get a less toxic and harmful hobby than attacking trans people on the internet.

  23. Why are the words of this Heath Atom Russell person, who mistakenly transitioned and now refuses to own her mistake, taken more seriously that the words of trans men who are happy with their lives? Why is that? Is it because she fits your narrow little idea of what being trans is about? I bet it is, 'cause it sure isn't for being anything else.

    I could point you to a hundred trans guys who haven't detransitioned, who aren't whiny regretters who can't cope with having made a mistake, and who don't and claim to be victims of some trans conspiracy to 'erase lesbians'.

    Some trans men never ever identified as lesbian. Some trans men never ever identified as lesbian. Get it? They always liked guys. How is a trans guy who likes guys erasing anything to do with lesbians?

Yes,I'm sure discussing all those health issues is very important when you've comprimised your health, so it doesn't surprise me 1000's attend. Like many Lesbians, and others, I do find it extremely disturbing that kids are now being "transitioned" when we know it's being based on something so wishy-washy.

    Homosexuality is as old as human kind itself. Despite this, the eugenics of gay men and lesbians is a historic reality. From lobotomies to forced institutionalization, it never seems to completely go out of fashion. Transgender is just a new form of it.

    Taking Care of Business: A group discussion for FTM sex workers

    Type of Workshop: Guided Discussion
    Does your workshop have a maximum number of participants that will be allowed in?: No
    Who is the intended audience?: Transmale/Transmasculine/FTM
    Workshop Topic:
    Sex Work
    Do you want to restrict the attendance of this workshop to a specific group?: Attendance Restricted
    If restricted, who is welcome to attend?: Sex workers

    Description:
    Trans men venturing into sex work are often going into unchartered territory - creating a market or fitting themselves in markets made for other bodies, other genders. This workshop will be a space where we can talk about how we navigate that world and share strategies for selling it safely and sustainably. This space will be closed to trans/genderqueer/intersex people who are former/current/future sex workers to give us an opportunity to talk about the real shit: living one gender working as another * client assumptions - you can't get pregnant so why use a condom? * teaching clients about your body * working stealth * disclosure when working on the internet vs the street * working in porn - what are the opportunities?Bring questions and knowledge to share!

  38. Over 3000 people just gathered in Philly for a three day conference on trans health issues, and yet these "radfem" hatefests struggle to attract 100 womyn (sic) from around the globe.

    Radical feminists are very proud of the fact that we don't get money from two powerful and lucrative commercial enterprises:

    (1.) The medical establishment which has always tried to sell women on one thing or another (plastic surgery, beauty products, botox, whatever, etc. etc.

    (2.) The sex industry which uses women's bodies then disposes of them when they are no longer marketable

  39. I'm a trans guy and even though I'm highly disgusted by this MTF transphobic post I laughed so loudly when I scrolled down to that picture of Ann Coulter (in the sense that she's a man with autogynephilia, not a transwoman). Yeah, s/he's a misogynist, racist true sociopath.
