Three Generations-A Lesson in Lezbophobia

A concerned reader alerted me to yet another transgender film, this one starring Naomi Watts, Elle Fanning, Susan Sarandon due to be released this September. The film portrays Watts as the mother of a daughter/Fanning (likely lesbian) who cannot handle dyke difficulties/lezbophobia/misogyny/sexism (difficulties the lesbian grandmother/Sarandon knows first hand). The film unknowingly mimics the real life situation older dyke generations have been (myself documenting) witnessing by growing droves of Trans Trenders (lesbian youth). The pre-T Fanning could easily find herself on this blog's Who is Transitioning posts:
The film drastically veers from its real life mimicry when the lesbian grandmother/Sarandon not only accepts her granddaughter as a boy, she joins the mother/daughter team to garner the father's signature for the life shortening/life altering/life poisoning drug testosterone-required for the (lesbian) daughter's boyish transition. Not having seen the film (but reading the lines/between the lines of the actresses' interviews on the film/reviews etc) I suspect the lesbian grandmother's/Sarandon change of mind (heart?) happens when the granddaughter/Fanning is attacked:

The veering regardless of the circumstance, occurs with the lesbian grandmother's acceptance/enabling of her granddaughter as transgender. As a writer who has received many a comment/email on this very subject from lesbian mothers/co-parents/lesbian grandmothers of a daughter/granddaughter caught up in the YouTube fun frenzy of female transition, these lesbian parents/guardians quickly nipped these girls youthful exuberance to join the transgender craze in the bud! 

Lesbian parents particularly, realized that in shielding their lesbian daughters of the harshness, grittiness and sometimes brutality of the lesbian hating universe that was out there, they also shielded them from all the unique, wondrous edgy us-against-the-world beauty of  lesbianism and when you times that by two, look out! Heavenly Heavenly Heaven, only without all the man-made gods! 

This film is clearly another baseball bat to the head of lesbianism, only using liberal leftist Hollywood stars poised with louisville sluggers.

  1. Transgender is the latest thing, and everyone has to get on board, or risk being branded uncool. Who cares if children are being sterilized with GnRH agonists and/or cross gender hormones. Who cares if 11 and 12 year old girls are already talking about "T" (testosterone) and "top surgery" (elective mastectomies with the surgical trimming down of areolas and nipples).

    Hollywood types are so eager to jump on any human rights or political cause that comes along. I admire actors and actresses that support environmental organizations. I think we can all get behind this political cause. Also, I have nothing but praise for actresses that support issues that impact women. Having said this, transgender is a far more nuanced and complicated subject. I like to compare brainwashed liberals who are drowning in the trans* Kool Aid to people who still think climate change is a hoax, or believe that Building 7 on 9/11 came down solely due to fire.

    Below are a few questions and comments that I would like to address to all the hopelessly naïve and brain dead, trendier than thou, faux progressives in Hollywood and elsewhere.

    (1.) We don't live in a world where men and women are equal or where lesbians aren't marginalized. What does it mean to lose female and lesbian identity? I would like Sarandon to think about this question for a long time. Since Sarandon is heterosexual, I'm sure she hasn't thought of this the same way a lesbian might, but she is still a woman. What does it mean to lose female identity? I'm sure people are going to say, "Well, they were "boys" all along". Is this really true, or is it more likely that these kids and their parents got caught up in the current, trendy transgender craze. Is it really "gender dysphoria" or socialization?

    (2.) How is it possible to completely separate "gender dysphoria" from cultural factors such as everything people see and read online from the zillion and one trans blogs, etc, parental and peer influence, etc.

    (3.) How will future historians view FTM "transitioning"? If people are wrong about it, it sure looks like female genital mutilation. This is the reality of "top surgery".

    Video of "Top Surgery"

    This is what botched FTM "transitioning" looks like:

  2. (4.) Most rational people view the sterilization of children as a human rights abuse. The prefrontal cortex of the human brain, sometimes called the judgment center of the brain isn't fully developed until the mid to early twenties. There is a reason why we don't let teenagers vote, buy alcohol, or take out bank loans. The fact that children feel different doesn't mean that they have the maturity to make informed decisions. I certainly hope transgender activists and their gullible allies and all the politically correct brainwashed people are right about this. It's not like they don't know that drugging children with GnRH agonists and/or cross gender hormones can render them infertile.

    (5.) Healthy female anatomy is being experimented on in ways that even the infamous Nazi doctor Mengele could ever imagine. In this experiment on healthy human female anatomy, holes are drilled in the pelvis, soft tissue is removed from part of tissue above the pubic bone, and a dildo like apparatus is attached or anchored to the bone. They have the audacity to compare this ghastly human experiment on healthy female bodies to "reconstructive surgery". This is not reconstructive surgery. It's mutilation.

    https://gendertrender.wordpress.com/2015/06/22/true-trans-titanium/

    (6.) I don't know why some people have difficulty accepting the fact that "transitioning" is often used as a form of gay and lesbian eugenics. In Iran, sex reassignment surgery has been used as a form of gay and lesbian eugenics for years. Why would one of the most oppressive countries on earth pay for sex reassignment surgery yet execute homosexuals? It's common practice for Iranian psychologists and psychiatrists to tell gay men and lesbians that they need sex reassignment surgery and hormones during the very first office visit.

  3. I'm glad that Elle Fanning kicks some ass and is shown defending herself in the movie. Does she have to be a "boy" to do this? Does she have to be a "boy" because she doesn't like wearing dresses? We are all supposed to fall in line and pretend that this isn't sexist at all. If this film were truly revolutionary, it would show girls doing all these things and more.

    Transgender is, in reality, part retro 1950s. sitcom with rigid sex roles, and new age insanity rolled up in one politically correct mess. God, forbid, just don't let her be a dyke. Anything but a butch lesbian.

  4. Hollywood is nothing more than a reflection of our current culture. I've always argued that we are living in one of the most misogynistic periods in modern history. Actresses are going to milk the current trans craze for all its worth.

    If "50 Shades of Grey" which glorifies violence against women is portrayed as if it's the sexiest, coolest thing out there, why are people surprised that they would glamorize FTM "transitioning".

    By and large, Hollywood never has been in the business of educating the public. Average, every day people know that what they sell is largely illusion. There are some actors and actresses with integrity, but the producers and the industry as a whole are in it for the money.

  6. So in the Hollywood view, the only women who get attacked are non-gender-conforming ones? Where do these people live, in a castle? Women get attacked, whether they conform or not. In fact, one of the other toxic memes going around is that, in order to protect themselves from rape, women should dress more modestly. In other words, a woman who dresses like a stereotypical femme, in this view, is "asking for it." And yet this movie posits that it's more dangerous to dress in an "unfeminine" way. Nonsense. All women are at risk, regardless of how they dress.

  8. There's this great movie: "Against a Trans Narrative"

    It's critical of the medical industrial complex,

    Its about how rape culture and heteropatriarchy and a society filled with misogyny control trans bodies and lives

    you should watch it.

    Made for people who resist a gender prescribed paradigm

  9. There is a book called: Queer Indigenous Studies
    Critical Interventions in Theory, Politics, and Literature

    and it talks about how the categories of male and female (as well as masculine and feminine, Butch, etc) belong only to euro centric cultures, and don't necessarily exist outside of them, leaving many people to mourn cultures (and the gender systems belonging to them) that were wiped out by colonizations that happened many years ago when white men colonized the shores of the "united states." If you're a person of white privilege, I especially recommend chapter 8. It is ironic how so many white lesbians mourn the loss of lesbian culture but will not read this work.

    1. Two-spirit is not evidence of a lack of a gender binary in non-Western cultures. It was largely patriarchal indigenous American societies that categorized gender non-conforming men as "other" and forced them to live with the women and children; gender non-conforming women were presumably expected to fall in line, no special category for the babymakers. Even modern concepts of two-spirit consider it to be something bestowed on an individual by the community, not an identity freely adopted. How that's supposed to be more progressive than Eurocentric concepts of gender is beyond me.

      Thinking a man is any less of a man, and thus not worthy of hunting animals or joining war parties, because he's not macho is not social progress.

      And two-spirit, even today, aren't considered to be the opposite sex, a concept that the modern, *Western* trans movement is trying to force on the rest of us to the detriment of women, an oppressed class that used to be granted some degree of protection by the state.

    I don't mean to bash all queer identified people, but the shameless co-option of other cultures infuriates me. I'm multi-racial and I was born with brown eyes and dark hair. I never hung out with the rich white kids in high school. I really don't hate all queer people. Some queer folk are cool with me. I hate indigenous cultures being colonized for political purposes, and I know it's not coming from lesbians.

    Although they might have a few token people of color, every major transgender organization that I'm aware of is run primarily by white males who "transition". Women, and this includes FTMs who are actually female, as well as people of color don't run these organizations. The "Q" and "T" which have taken over major LGBTQ organizations are not controlled by women or people of color.

    When did queer theory and transgender really start to explode? These movements emerged during neoliberalism economics and the backlash against feminism, civil rights, and identity politics. Neoliberal economic policies are raping the earth and destroying indigenous cultures.

    Who are planet's biggest colonizers of other cultures and what do we know about them? We know it's not women because they lack the political and economic ability to do so. White European people, especially white European males are the historical global experts on colonization of other cultures. It appears that they have devised another b.s. colonizing scheme to go along with their general rape of the planet and mass plundering of other cultures. They have now proclaimed that Bruce Jenner (forget the fact that he is a white male and is wealthy) and Mr. Carlotta Sklodowska (another white male, photos below) are exactly like indigenous people. It's complete and utter nonsense and offensivel, but we are supposed to swallow it because it's magical queer and trans*.

    Even the very term "queer" as it is used today is a white male, European invention.

    As to same lesbian and same sex sexual attraction in general,

    Fact: Same sex sexual attraction has been observed in virtually all primates and mammals and has existed as long as the human species has existed.
    Fact: No primate can change its sex.
    Fact: The words queer and trans are white, European words.

      The work above was authored by brilliant indigenous scholars, not a co-optation. And its not for a white agenda, and shouldnt be used that way, it should be used to decolonized cultures that have faced white violence.

    According to the twisted logic of July 8, 2015 at 5:25 PM, there are only white lesbians. We know this isn't true because same sex sexual attraction has always existed. There are lesbians of all races and ethnicities -black, white, Asian, Native. Butch lesbians have existed long before queer and trans* became popular in the 1990s.

    For all we know, Two Spirit and other non-traditional indigenous persons could have been butch lesbians or effeminate gay men. No, queer theorists and transgender activists have declared that they are all "queer" even though no tribe that I'm aware of called their people trans or queer. This is the difference between real colonizers (queer and trans) and people who don't shamelessly colonize other cultures. See the stereotypical feather hanging from the Trans* Umbrella. Butch lesbians wouldn't do this, and I doubt that gay men would either, but colonizing queer and trans do because their "culture", if we want to call it that, is based on nothing more than a vampire like colonization of other cultures. Whether it's intersex or indigenous cultures, there isn't anyone they won't colonize.

    There is nothing racist about dangling a feather (stereotypical Native symbol when used by whites) from a trans* umbrella. The rainbow flag (historically gay and lesbian, but run by trans and queer) doesn't have a feather hanging from it even though gay men and lesbians have existed in all cultures. No, it's just trans* and queer because they are special.

    http://transaustin.com/terms-and-concepts/the-trans-umbrella/

    To further illustrate how utterly offensive queer and trans dogma is to people of color and Native cultures in general look at the photographs of the man who calls himself Carlotta Sklodowska. A kinky white male who likes to wear a dress and have women spank him, pee on him, and lead him around on a leash is exactly like all indigenous people. “Water sports” (urinating on people for thrills) and BDSM was invented by indigenous people. I don't think so.

    http://genderidentitywatch.com/2015/03/09/carlotta-sklodowska-sklodowska1982-csklodowska-planetfitness-hrc-aclulgbt-usa/

    One thing is for certain. Indigenous people didn't sterilize their children with puberty suppressing drugs and cross gender hormones. On the long time line of human history, sex reassignment surgery (it really doesn't change one's sex) is a recent phenomenon. This is neoliberal, post modern western medicine, and it has nothing to do with indigenous cultures.

    Finally, queer and transgender activists do not own some kind of copyright or patent on all non-traditional behavior both past and present. Throughout history, some intrepid souls have always stepped outside the boundaries of traditional sex roles. They went by many names, and the way they lived their lives depended upon the individual culture they lived in.

    I'm butch lesbian. I am not queer and I'm not transgender. Take the racist feather dangling from the Trans* Umbrella and shove it.

    1. We REALLY NEED to center native violences, histories and cultures before we talk about who's apart of this violence and who's not, white Butch Lesbians are NOT exempt from racism, or violence against indigenous people just because they may not claim a trans or queer identity. Its WAY more complicated, its something that ALL white people are apart of. PLEASE PLEASE if you are a person of white privilege of ANY identification read this work!

  14. The truth is:

    Doctors have no idea what the long term effects of testosterone is (speaking exclusively health wise,) but lets not use "boyish" like its a bad word, its ok for bodies and expressions to defy the hetero-patriarchal standard.

    WTF does this mean? The name for female might be different depending on the culture, but females have always existed. These are people who give birth. Woman is an adult female. Males are not "women".

  16. ...white Butch Lesbians are NOT exempt from racism, or violence against indigenous people just because they may not claim a trans or queer identity.

    White males are the planet's number one colonizer of other cultures. Who actually runs transgender and LGBQT organizations (the L actually doesn't exist anymore). It's not women.

    Butch lesbians and women in general are not responsible for the near genocide and actual genocide of numerous indigenous tribes. Women have never had the political or economic ability to completely colonize and murder indigenous people by the hundreds of thousands. Virtually all wars were started by males. All women have been victims of rape during war, and lesbians are victims of corrective rape in places like South Africa. Girls and women are so devalued that there are 163 million missing girls from India and China ( Mara Hvistendahl). Actually, the 163 million lost females is a low number because female infanticide has been going on for centuries. Female genital mutilation still exists although it's outlawed, and footbinding (mutilation) went on for nearly a century. It would take this entire blog and a hundred other blogs to list all the crimes committed against the female sex. Then, this moron states, "white Butch Lesbians are NOT exempt from racism, or violence against indigenous people just because they may not claim a trans or queer identity." Trans and queer identified males are NOT exempt from sexism (read some of the TERF death threats, misogynistic comments, etc.). Trans and queer identified males are NOT exempt from racism. As to violence, we know two things. First, most violent crime is committed by males. Look at the crime statistics. Second, males who identify as transgender or cross dress offend at the same rate as other males. There are too many examples to list here. I don't mean to disrespect the male sex, but this is the reality.

    Like all oppressed groups of people, women have the right to define ourselves.

    What this person really means is that males, especially privileged white males basically define everything in the world. They have proclaimed that "woman" is whatever men say it is. If a rich white man says he is a "woman", and has a fat bank account $$$ for plastic surgery (facial feminization, tracheal shave, boob job, tush job, etc.). then he is a "woman". After all, "womanhood" is something that can be purchased just like any other consumer product. Why are women the only historically oppressed group of people who aren't granted the right to define themselves? Males say they are "women", and I say they aren't. Why are they right and I'm wrong?

    What we see right now is outright colonization and erasure of lesbian identity. We all know it's true, but people refuse to see and acknowledge what is all around them. If all lesbians can't be "transitioned" to extinction similar to what is happening in Iran where it's more obvious, then they will simply colonize and co-opt the word lesbian itself. For example, cross dressing and trans heterosexual males calling themselves "lesbian", or "trans-lesbian" is nothing more than a more powerful group (predominately white males) colonizing a less powerful group (women). We all know it's happening, but people refuse to admit it.
