Change Your World-NOT your Body

I Would Rather DIE than be Female-But I'm NOT a Misogynist!

The above is from a short conversation with what I presume to be a young woman regarding misogyny.

I do not see her desperate desire to opt out of womanhood as something she has or is doing wrong. I see it as something WE as feminist have and are doing wrong!!!

Today the fog of misogyny in the air is so thick, females of all ages, but especially our youth are fucking choking to death on it. I'm reminded of an early Plath line "Father this thick air is murderous/I would breathe water." But Trans Trending females are not just breathing water, they injecting it into their bloodstreams in hopes of removing any and all traces of visible femaleness, physically AND mentally. They are dying as women in hopes and dreams of reliving as men!

For more than 20 years now feminists/radfems have agreed that postmodernism's bastard baby Queer Theory is a direct backlash against early feminist gains. But the community most devastated by QT was, is and continues to be the Lesbian Community! There are whole lesbian sub communities that basically no longer exist due to QT's assistance with the media packaging of The Gender Straight Jacket. A hyper feminine jacket so constrictive and ugly, many lesbians have not be able to exist within its confines with any sense of comfort or belonging. But while hyper femininity was making its home among us, most feminist remained silent, till hyper femininity became the new female norm!

And while it created uber females suffering from eating disorders, bipolar disorders, borderline personality disorders, depression and on and on and on, it has been LESBIANS labeled as suffering from gender identity disorder and then treated with transition as the DSM cure! Trans Trending is the AIDS crisis of the lesbian community, and the same homophobic silence that caused the deaths of tens of thousands of gay men is in the 80's, is causing the transition of lesbians today!

I do not think it is a coincidence that feminist ignore the lesbian genocide that continues taking place right in front of them. I think if their lezbophobia does not out right support it, at the least it quietly looks in a different direction so they do not have to see it!

Well I see it every day, in fact read the above, I'm fucking emailed it! But even were it not in my direct gaze, as a lesbian and a feminist I have a duty to the present and future lesbians to try and stop it. And stopping it doesnt include wasting thousands of hours arguing with autogynephiles or each other. Stopping it demands feminist examples, lesbian feminist examples and the action to put those examples in front of lesbian youth or more importantly in the HANDS of lesbian youth.

I repeat: Trans Trending is the AIDS crisis of the lesbian community today! 

What are YOU doing to stop it?

  1. dirt, I agree with everything you say here except the notion that postmodernism is the cause of the transition trend. Let's not blame Foucault, Derrida, and Deleuze for this; in fact, I would argue that you could use some of the skepticism PoMoists wrote of the medical and psychiatric establishments as arguments against the "trans" bullshit (i.e. that if you don't fit with your roles prescribed at birth you "must" be the opposite sex "on the inside" according to modern psychiatry). Although I must agree with you that QT is terrible and in no way helps feminism.

    Anyway, take care and solidarity.

  2. I repeat: Trans Trending is the AIDS crisis of the lesbian community today.

    I agree completely. "Trasitioning" might not kill a woman like AIDS can eventually kill a person, but what it does is mutilate the female anatomy and wreck havoc on a healthy reproductive system. It is more insidious in that it erases female identity, and if the woman is primarily attracted to other women, which many are, it erases lesbian identity. What does it mean to erase female and lesbian identity? No one is allowed to ask these questions.

    People have often heard the phrase, "the war on women". It's usually used to describe the way in which conservatives have tried to chip away at abortion rights and other issues that impact the lives of women. The war on women is also coming from the left. Most of these people are well meaning, but they haven't a clue. When I look at the mutilated bodies of females who "transition", or look at countless youtube videos of 14 year old girls who are already talking about "T", it's so painfully obvious to me. Mainstream, pseudo-liberal progressives either don't have the time to see exactly what is occurring right beneath their noses, or they have come to the conclusion that feminism is so passé, boring, and no one really cares anyway.

    There a few intrepid left leaning people who see the writing on the wall. They know exactly what is going on, and they aren't timid about speaking out. Counterpunch which is fearless featured an excellent article:

    http://www.counterpunch.org/2013/06/21/55123/

    Please donate whatever you can to independent journalists with actual integrity.

    Mainstream, corporate owned media is usually years behind what is actually happening in the world. The same media that ran stories of the six year old "transgender" boy is the same media that said there were WMDs in Iraq. Wait, there weren't WMDs in Iraq. Where did we go wrong? Despite the fact that some say the mother is a tad unstable, and no one knows for sure how this six year old boy will feel in ten years, the media seemed to eat it up. Is it true that the mother really gave birth to her triplets in a kiddie pool in the living room? Who diagnosed this six year old child with "gender identity disorder"? They have absolutely no idea what is going on. When anyone questions puberty suppressing drugs, FTM "top surgery", or why so many 14 year old girls are talking about "T" and already binding their breasts, it falls on deaf ears. For the most part, all corporate sponsored mainstream medial does do is chase after the current fad or trend du jour.

  3. I don't think it was that pretentious French philosophy that confused young women. I think we lost feminism when Madonna became a role model for young women. One could be a sex object and an empowered woman. It was true for her, but other women have had to live up to unrealistic standards ever since.

  4. I doubt this comment will end up getting posted, but heck. It's worth a shot.

    The hate, ignorance, and invalidation is exactly what the majority of the population was doing to the LGB community years ago.

    FTMs are not going to erase the lesbian identity. MTFs are statistically at least 3 times as numerous as FTMs and have not erased gay men's identitys.

    Your words are powerful and can really hurt other people. Please think of the consequences.

    Please remember at one time, people didn't accept lesbians either. We can all just live and let be.

    Since this person brought up the subject of hate, let's examine who is doing what to whom. Not only is FTM "transitioning" erasing lesbian identity, feminist voices are being silenced.

    "Do radfems realize how offensive and passé the use of the terms "female" & "sex class" are? Did your fem theory end in 1975?...

    Universal shared girlhood: another ridiculous myth."

    Joelle Ruby Ryan, 6'4" 280 lb. man who is a lecturer in Women's Studies


    The use of the term female and class in the same sentence is offensive and passé. Females as a distinct group or class of historically oppressed persons have nothing in common. Indeed, they don't even exist. All those stupid, ignorant, and passé first and second wave feminists who fought tenaciously for silly things like voting rights and reproductive health care are passé, and hopelessly outdated. The new feminism will be run by men. Well, 6'4" men in drag.

  11. Yes, radfems should kill themselves. Also, I'm surprised a bio man commented (Aaron). If he thinks he has some kind of alliance with radfems like Dirt and all her/it's followers (aka her sock accounts) he is wrong. If it wasn't for us ftms existing this blog would be 100% misandry attacking bio men. In fact, some of the blogs linked on Dirt's POS page are man-hating propaganda. Good job being a tool for a radfem.

    Here are some quotes from the radfem-created SCUM manifesto which stands for 'Society of Cutting Up Men':

    http://www.womynkind.org/scum.htm

    Eliminate men and women will shape up. Women are improvable; men are not.

    It is now technically feasible to reproduce without the aid of males (or, for that matter, females) and to produce only females. We must begin immediately to do so. Retaining the mail has not even the dubious purpose of reproduction. The male is a biological accident: the Y (male) gene is an incomplete X (female) gene, that is, it has an incomplete set of chromosomes. In other words, the male is an incomplete female, a walking abortion, aborted at the gene stage. To be male is to be deficient, emotionally limited; maleness is a deficiency disease and males are emotional cripples.

  12. Incapable of a positive state of happiness, which is the only thing that can justify one's existence, the male is, at best, relaxed, comfortable, neutral, and this condition is extremely short-lived, as boredom, a negative state, soon sets in; he is, therefore, doomed to an existence of suffering relieved only by occasional, fleeting stretches of restfulness, which state he can only achieve at the expense of some female. The male is, by his very nature, a leech, an emotional parasite and, therefore, not ethically entitled to live, as no one as the right to life at someone else's expense.

    Just as humans have a prior right to existence over dogs by virtue of being more highly evolved and having a superior consciousness, so women have a prior right to existence over men. The elimination of any male is, therefore, a righteous and good act, an act highly beneficial to women as well as an act of mercy.

    You mean like how you're judging all 'radfems?' I've seen Dirt repeatedly state her affection for the men in her life, and I've ALWAYS been best friends with males; just because someone doesn't believe in the trans philosophy/religion does not make one a man-hater. I think it gives the female-to-transes a kick to think that the reason that feminists disagree with their conformist gender ideas is because they hate men. (Same with the male-to-trans, in the extreme.)

  17. @ Burn the witches and silence the women:

    First of all, I have to admit I didn't really read your post. After seeing the first couple comment sI decided it wasn't worth my time to pollute my mind with it.

    I think you misunderstand me. When I said I was against hating on FTMs, it didn't mean I support hating on feminists. In fact, I find many if not all of those comments to be horrendous and feel bad for all the feminists that have had to read them.

    I support feminism. I think we still have a long way to go in treating women as equals. I think most men have no clue what it is like to be a woman. How hard it is to get an equal paying job, how hard it is to be promoted,the unrealistic expectations, how it is not equal in every single aspect of life. Growing up as a perceived woman, I understand how it feels.

    However, I knew that I identified as a man inside long before I understood the implications of being a woman in today's society.

    Do you think that we want to undergo painful surgery? Or jab a huge needle in our leg every other week? Heck no. We do it because there is no other choice. Because if we don't, the dysphoria will destroy us inside and we'll end up killing ourselves. The average lifespan of a transgendered person is 23. An estimated 41% suicide rate is ridiculous.

    Bottom line: I don't think hating on the feminist community is a practical way to move forward. I would not say something like that, and I definitely don't condone the people that wrote those statements. I'm also sorry that you had to see them and be hurt. I imagine they hurt in the same way some statements here hurt me.

    Can we all just spread good statements and call ourselves human?

    But why is it? Could it be that transitioning/SRS doesn't solve the underlying problem? People with BIID who have dysphoria towards a leg aren't treated by removing the offending bodypart, but psychologically. Amputating a (healthy) body part doesn't solve a psychchological problem.

    You're right, SRS doesn't solve all the underlying problems. Sure, for many it solves the problem of dysphoria. But too many trans people go into transition expecting all of their problems to be fixed on the other side, and this obviously doesn't happen. The depression and anxiety from the effects of society don't magically go away with a physical transition, and follow up mental healthcare is crucial to cope with the change.

    Post medical transition people have to deal with the fact that they'll rely on a prescription for the rest of their life. They might also have unrealistic expectations of what HRT/surgeries can. The medical technology can only go so far.

    So, when someone transitions, they deal with a whole other slew of problems that they didn't have before. But it's their choice to face those problems in the hope that it'll eventually be better than it was before. They don't need people saying hurtful comments or invalidating their identity to add to the struggle.

    For TG people with real life experience for 1 year before hormones or surgery, the post-op satisfaction rate has been as high as 98%.

    That said, just because someone is satisfied, doesn't mean they can cope with the aftermath of the depression and anxiety from before. Mental health treatment is still needed.

    To those that say the suicide rate is no lower after transition than before: many pre-op transpeople that commit suicide haven't told anyone they are trans, so it's impossible to know the pre-op rate, and the stats the do come out with are probably underestimated.

    For your final point, some people (those that can somehow manage to get a doctor to do it) with BIID have found psychological relief with an amputation.

    http://transabled.org/thoughts/sean-thoughts/biid-amputee-says-hes-happy.htm

    Frankly, to me, it sounds crazy. Just nuts and I really don't understand it. And I'm trying to understand that that's what transgenderism must seem like to you. It's really difficult to understand something that hasn't been experienced.

  26. Here are some quotes from the radfem-created SCUM manifesto which stands for 'Society of Cutting Up Men':

    http://www.womynkind.org/scum.htm



    I identify with some of what radical feminism has to say. However, I don't buy into it hook, line, and sinker. Moreover, how do we define who is and isn't an evil "radfem"? Who exactly is a "radfem" because transgender interests label anything or anyone they don't like as "radfem". Radfem this and radfem that as if the devil incarnate has come to life and is threatening the entire male of the species. I've repeatedly stated on this blog and elsewhere that any type of sex selection is utterly repugnant. Females and males are to be honored the same. In reality, this is not how the world works. Sex selection to eliminate female fetuses has resulted in 163 million missing girls from India and China (Hvistendah). Isn't it interesting that FTMs and their misogynistic men's rights advocates can always dig up some obscure relic to show that all "rad fems" hate men, but FAIL TO ACKNOWLEDGE FEMALE INFANTICIDE THAT IS AN ANCIENT PRACTICE.

    Question: OTHER THAN WARS IN WHICH MALES KILL OTHER MALES IN GREAT NUMBERS, HAS THERE EVER BEEN A CULTURALLY SANCTIONED FORM OF "MALE INFANTICIDE"?

    "The phenomenon of female infanticide is as old as many cultures, and has likely accounted for millions of gender-selective deaths throughout history. It remains a critical concern in a number of "Third World" countries today, notably the two most populous countries on earth, China and India. In all cases, specifically female infanticide reflects the low status accorded to women in most parts of the world; it is arguably the most brutal and destructive manifestation of the anti-female bias that pervades "patriarchal" societies. It is closely linked to the phenomena of sex-selective abortion, which targets female fetuses almost exclusively, and neglect of girl children.

    http://www.gendercide.org/case_infanticide.html

    "As John-Thor Dahlburg points out, "in rural India, the centuries-old practice of female infanticide can still be considered a wise course of action." (Dahlburg, "Where killing baby girls 'is no big sin'," The Los Angeles Times [in The Toronto Star, February 28, 1994.]) According to census statistics, "From 972 females for every 1,000 males in 1901 ... the gender imbalance has tilted to 929 females per 1,000 males. ... In the nearly 300 poor hamlets of the Usilampatti area of Tamil Nadu [state], as many as 196 girls died under suspicious circumstances [in 1993] ... Some were fed dry, unhulled rice that punctured their windpipes, or were made to swallow poisonous powdered fertilizer. Others were smothered with a wet towel, strangled or allowed to starve to death." Dahlburg profiles one disturbing case from Tamil Nadu:


    Lakshmi already had one daughter, so when she gave birth to a second girl, she killed her. For the three days of her second child's short life, Lakshmi admits, she refused to nurse her. To silence the infant's famished cries, the impoverished village woman squeezed the milky sap from an oleander shrub, mixed it with castor oil, and forced the poisonous potion down the newborn's throat. The baby bled from the nose, then died soon afterward. Female neighbors buried her in a small hole near Lakshmi's square thatched hut of sunbaked mud. They sympathized with Lakshmi, and in the same circumstances, some would probably have done what she did.

    Who knows what goes on in the minds of women when they read this and they see a thousand plus years of rape and unimaginable abuse of women. I've never even heard of SCUM before today, and I haven't had the time to research who they are. However, I can certainly understand their anger.

  28. Transabled or "radfems"...which is crazier...

    For your final point, some people (those that can somehow manage to get a doctor to do it) with BIID have found psychological relief with an amputation.

    http://transabled.org/thoughts/sean-thoughts/biid-amputee-says-hes-happy.htm

    Frankly, to me, it sounds crazy. Just nuts and I really don't understand it. And I'm trying to understand that that's what transgenderism must seem like to you. It's really difficult to understand something that hasn't been experienced."


    And they say the evil "radfems" are bat crap crazy...these people are in dire need of some psychological help ASAP..

    Who is more bat crap crazier (like certifiable) than the horrid "rad fems"? I would have to say these people.

    "So you'll ask: "That 'thing', transabled, just exactly what is it?". It is hard to define in just a few words, the best way to learn is by going through the site, but in a nutshell, someone who is transabled "wants" to be disabled..But it is not so much a "want" as much as a "need". Our "desire" is more a reflection of the fact that our self-image is that of a paraplegic (or amputee, or blind, or any number of other disabilities) than that of an able bodied man or woman.

    I hope to God, or whatever higher power one prays to, if any, that I never understand healthy people actually wanting to be deaf. This is really sick, and it's an incredible insult to people who are actually deaf. Disabled advocates should be up in arms over this.

    "A comparison between transsexuality and transableism

    Sean asked me to write something talking about the similarities in what a transsexual person and a transabled person go through. In fact Sean even coined the word "transabled" having in mind its similarities with transsexualism.

    Personally I am a transsexual. I had GRS (genital reassignment surgery) in October 2005 with a well-recognised surgeon in North America. I am also transabled: I have a desire to be moderately/severely deaf (as journaled in my blog ‘makemedeaf.blogspot.com’). At the time of this writing I haven’t achieved my TA goal.

  30. Comparisons between transsexuality and transablism

    I’m hoping to make the similarities between transabledism (which may be a new word) and transsexualism so that more people can understand the transabled person. I am a very strong proponent of personal liberty and the rights of an individual to do what they want with their body, as long as it doesn’t hurt anyone nonconsenting.

    Part 2. Definitions
    A comparison between transsexuality and transableism

    http://transabled.org/thoughts/a-comparison-between-transsexuality-and-transableism.htm

    "A transsexual is a person that feels an incongruity between their genitals and their gender identity. A person’s gender identity is held in a person’s brain (as a part of "self"). Cisgendered (non-transsexual) individuals usually have a hard time understanding how something so fundamental such as one’s gender identity can be different from their genitals.

    A transabled person is someone who desperately wants or needs to be disabled in some way. That’s taken straight from Sean’s glossary on transabled.org.

    The transsexual and transabled person’s motivations are generally not sexual. (*note how they say "generally not sexual)

    I’m a very liberal person and believe that there should be nothing to stop a person from doing whatever they want to their own body as long as it doesn’t hurt or involve a nonconsenting adult.

    For a pointed example: a transabled person that wishes or feels a need to be deaf should be able to make him or herself deaf without reprecussion from the law. That person being deaf hurts no one. However if they wanted to make absolutely sure they heard no external noise they would want to sever the auditory nerve. This is not without implications: if they were wise they would realise that the vestibular nerve (for balance) and the auditory nerve are very close in proximity to each other and are therefor hard to separate. A consenting surgeon — this means that a surgeon is free to object to doing this surgery — might not be able to separate out the auditory bits from the vestibular bits and so the person may lose vestibular functionality from their inner ear. Or they could do no research and go into it blindly (which is a whole other example!).

    The point is that I, as a person that wants to be deaf, should be legally and ethically free to achieve that deafness however I want. If I want to involve another person (such as a surgeon) we would need to come to an arrangement where we both consent to the procedure. The surgeon might not sever the nerves unless I illustrated an understanding of what will happen if I lose vestibular nerve function. Incidentally the medical community calls what the surgeon might ask (in my example) informed consent.

    In a short one sentence summary: transsexuals and transabled people are more similar than one might think and they both deserve medical/psychological treatment – surgical if necessary."

  31. This is really sick stuff...trans cuts off own legs...

    Jerry Springer....

    Things the transgender community will never admit:

    (1.) Autogynephilia...males who are sexually aroused by the idea that they are women, wearing women's clothes...things like a panty hose fetish or women's underwear...or a sexual attraction to possessing or wearing women's clothes...
    (2.) Apotemnophilia: In 1977, the renowned US sexologist John Money of the John Hopkins University coined the term “apotemnophilia” in the Journal of Sex Research. Apotemnophilia (Greek for “amputation love”) refers to being sexually excited by the fantasy or reality of being an amputee. This behaviour is often accompanied by obsessive scheming to convince a surgeon to perform a medically unnecessary amputation. This might seem to most people to be a type of masochism but reported case studies suggest that there is no erotization of pain itself – only of the healed amputated stump. To give you an inside look at the world of the apotomnophiliac, here are two real life case accounts from Professor Money’s files. Both involve people who had an erotic and obsessive desire to be an amputee.

    Case Study 1: A man phoned up Professor Money’s sex research unit asking if he could have his leg amputated. He was told that this would not be possible but he continued to phone and write to the unit for the next four years. It was later discovered that he had made many attempts to self-inflict serious injury to his left leg. His obsession had been present since he was 13 years old in the form of self-amputee fantasies. On one notable occasion he hammered a stainless steel rod into his left leg and then tried to infect the open wound by smearing it on facial acne mixed with anal and nasal mucous. When his leg showed serious signs of infection he reported it to the hospital. Unfortunately his attempt failed as antibiotic treatment cleared the infection up. Looking into the childhood background, the most prominent early recollection was his left leg being severely burned by an overturned pot of boiling oatmeal at the age of two years old. This left him unable to walk for a year. However, there was little else in his family history to suggest the origins of such bizarre
    behaviour.

  32. If it wasn't for us ftms existing this blog would be 100% misandry attacking bio men. In fact, some of the blogs linked on Dirt's POS page are man-hating propaganda. Good job being a tool for a radfem.

    Look! There goes a "radfem". Trans activists and their MRAs (men's rights advocates) proceed to chase her down, corner her, mark up her books and literature, throw food at her, joke about bashing in her head with baseball bat, and make death and rape threats. A small rag tag group of uppity outspoken women represent a threat to the institution of patriarchy in general and MRAs in particular.

    Women need to understand that if trans activists and their MRAs allies can label any woman they don't like a "rad fem", this doesn't bode well for any woman with an independent mind.

    It's sort of like the old McCarthyism. If a woman knows someone who is a friend of a friend of a friend of a "radfem", then they are "radfem" too. It's often guilt by association. Some trans activists/gender queer people went after DGR with a vengeance.

    I'm the one who pointed out the radfem SCUM website and I never heard of "transabled" before. That website you linked deeply sickens me and should NOT be compared to transgender people.

    My mom had childhood polio and walks on crutches now and I can't imagine anyone wanting to be disabled unless they're very, very sick in the head. That website was insulting towards disabled people. I think it's some kind of weird fetish. Those sick fucks need to call themselves something else and not use the 'trans' prefix. And yeah, they should kill themselves too.

  35. Trans Trending is the AIDS crisis of the lesbian community today!

    I agree that trans trending is the AIDS crisis of the lesbian community. However, there is an enormous difference between this crisis and the history of how AIDS decimated the lives of gay men starting in the early 1980s. Because women are conditioned to always think of others first, many women and lesbians worked tirelessly to help gay men stricken with the disease. One would think that gay men would be grateful for all the help that they got from women. No, it doesn't work like this in the real world because women's issues are rarely taken seriously. Unless it effects them personally, it's nearly impossible for gay men to take lesbians seriously. It's always been this way. Although there is no way in hell Obama could have been elected twice without the women's vote, I've never seen gay men go out of their way to help women much less lesbians. They take the women's vote for granted, and they expect women to make the coffee and cater to them. I certainly have nothing against gay men, but when push comes to shove, and when it really matters men could care less how women feel. Gay men are no different. Lesbians need to understand this sad reality. I've seen lesbians get suckered time and time again into supporting gay men, but they could care less about lesbians.

  36. It is awfully sad. That in this day and age one bitter twisted lesbian whom wants to trans bash, Can i ask whats the route cause, did a lesbian you loved transition? Do you have that much fear? It is unfathomable that you continue to produce this drivvel.

    I was a lesbian, I was a woman.
    I am now a gay man and i am a man.

    What exactly on earth does that have to do with you? It is not me diminishing the profile of lesbian women nor invading that of gay men. Infact alot of gay men quite like me being a part of the community.

    I think you should go back to your own issues around gender and leve everyone else alone.

    Including the ridiculose who's transitioning photo galleries.

  38. "Do you think that we want to undergo painful surgery? Or jab a huge needle in our leg every other week? Heck no. We do it because there is no other choice."

    I have compassion for trans people and their dysphoria, but there IS another choice. What did trans people do pre-industrialisation and technological so-called advancements? And what did and do trans people do in cultures today that respect ALL forms of sex and gender? These people just BE, and are accepted, as they ARE. I get that surgery and hormones are the modern and quick fix way to alleviate some dysphoria, but it is NOT the only choice. It takes a lot of courage to just be exactly how nature made you, and be at peace with it. I doubt gender dysphoria existed/exists in cultures that accept and celebrate people's infinite diversity.

    I was an elephant, but now I'm an aardvark.

    Seriously, this human born female is bisexual. There is nothing wrong with liking both men and women. Does this person really think that gay men want a vagina. Gay dudes want a penis. It's incredible sad, but this individual probably will end up a permanent bottom for some lonely gay man. This individual deserves something better.

    That in this day and age one bitter twisted lesbian whom wants to trans bash, Can i ask whats the route cause, did a lesbian you loved transition?

    This isn't just about lesbians, although we know that "transitioning" is being used to erase lesbian identity. This is about the entire female sex and the entire history of women. How can any female feel so alienated from her own sex, from her own skin, and her own being? Sixteen year old girls can't wait to get their breasts lopped off. Are we supposed to rejoice in this mutilation of female bodies? How can the erasing of female identity and the mutilation of female bodies not be a feminist issue?

    Can i ask whats the route cause, did a lesbian you loved transition?

    I think this person meant to say the root cause as opposed to the route cause. Or, they could have really meant route as in direction. At any rate, crippling internalized misogyny is the root cause as well as the "route cause".

    Please read this sentence again.

    ..and again...

    ....and again...

    I was a lesbian, I was a woman.

    I was a lesbian, I was a woman.

    ..and again...

    I was a lesbian, I was a woman.

    The loss of a woman is nothing to celebrate. So many women have struggled against such great odds from time immemorial to let this happen. The ghosts of millions of ancient female souls must be weeping right now.
