Transition-Where Female Self Hatred and Internalized Lezbophobia Intersect

From an email I received this afternoon:
My response to her and all the young lesbians just like her:

No I dont think its pointless, there is a VERY clear point of conformity at all cost and lives. We live in a patriarchal word/world, created by men/for men. ALL females suffer from degrees of dysphoria, it would be completely impossible for us to exist in THIS world otherwise. Until females learn/understand and change why so much about being female feels wrong, females will continue to be pressured into reproduction, transition, wear uncomfortable clothes, diet themselves to death, get plastic surgery on every conceivable and inconceivable body part, hate themselves, hate their bodies, hurt themselves, hurt their bodies until the day they die or are killed by all of the above!  
You arent an exception, you're a statistic!!! And only YOU can take your name off that dismal infinitesimal list of misogyny!

  1. Start thinking of gender as a hierarchy not a binary. Masculinity is male domination and femininity is female submission.

    The fact that you're agender is good; you don't want to have gender in the first place. Sex dysphoria is just good old fashioned body dysmorphia from being female in a patriarchy. All women have it but it doesn't really get talked about even though it should.

    I know that with transgender and typical misogynist bullshit, the definition of woman gets muddled and confused but all "woman" means is "adult human female". That's IT. All the other meanings attached to it (Submission, being 'girly'/feminine, 'feeling' like a girl) is gender.

    I really recommend watching "The End of Gender: Revolution Not Reform" on Youtube. It breaks down what gender is, why it's bad, and what it's often confused with.

    (And if it means anything, this is coming from a female detransitioner who has "identified" as every goddamn "gender identity" the past few years)

    dirt,infinitesimal means really small.

    I think you have the wrong adjective.

    It's a good post, but the adjective seems out of place.

  3. "Start thinking of gender as a hierarchy not a binary."

    I never did buy into the idea of gender as a binary. In some ways, I guess it could be described as a binary. Yet, instinctively most women don't feel or experience it as such. Binary means two parts, as in both parts are more or less equal. Does "binary" really describe the actual lives of women? When women control 1% of the world's wealth, how can gender be a "binary".

    "The World Bank’s latest World Development Report, which focuses on gender equality around the world, offers some stark facts about how women and girls fare in developing countries despite decades of progress.

    Wealth: Women represent 40% of the world’s labor force but hold just 1% of the world’s wealth."

    This is the reality, but when intrepid women speak out, they are often the targets of harassment and incessant bullying. Still, women do muster the courage to speak.

    "It’s become popular in some activist circles to embrace notions from postmodernism, and that includes the idea that gender is somehow a binary. Gender is not a binary. It is a hierarchy. It is global in its reach, it is sadistic in its practice, and it is murderous in its completion. Just like race, and just like class. Gender demarcates the geopolitical boundaries of the patriarchy—which is to say, it divides us in half. That half is not horizontal—it is vertical. And in case you missed this part, men are always on top. "

    Keith caught hell for this comment. Sometimes the truth upsets people.
