Defying Gender Norms/Becoming Gender Norms-From the Annals of Rock to the Anal of Transgenderism

It wasnt that long ago men braved and reveled in breaking gender barriers, without calling themselves women, without passing laws regulating others to "recognize" them as women, without attacking anyone who raises an eyebrow, without needing mental disorder diagnoses, without requiring society to mirror their IDEA of themselves back. Can you tell the difference between yesterdays outlaw bad boys and today's impotent trans males? How many of yesterdays glam boy rockers would be diagnosed as transgender now?

Well, you walk into a restaurant all strung out from the road
And you feel the eyes upon you as you're shaking off the cold
You pretend it doesn't bother you, but you just want to explode

Most times you can't hear 'em talk, other times you can
All the same old clich├ęs, is it woman, is it man?
And you always seem outnumbered, so you don't dare make a stand

How did we go from defying gender norms, to medically becoming gender norms?

  1. How did we go from defying gender norms, to medically becoming gender norms?

    Spot on!

    "Transitioning" (hormones, puberty suppressing drugs, "top surgery", "bottom surgery", "facial femininzation" for males, etc.) is a culturally approved form of misogyny and/or homophobia. It's misogyny and/or homophobia dressed up in new age chic.

    How is calling a 6 or 7 year old girl "he" because she likes to play with toy trucks any different than saying that girls shouldn't play with these toys?

    Girl = pretty pink dresses, Barbie dolls, nail polish, shopping, etc.
    Boy = football, sports, never cry, rough, etc.

    Nothing sexist about this...

  2. Look up what Bob Seger looked like in 1973. Conservative folks just did not like long hair on men back then. They were just being rude.

  3. Hey metalheads are still doing it! Thats originally why metal dudes have long hair, to say fuck off to gender norms! If the whole world was metal, we'd have way less of this bullshit, too bad everyone is mostly a poozer.
