A binder, boobs removal, working-out, T does not fool your brain (and sometimes not even your next neighboor) who still is female...Saying so, the feminist struggles go on, despite of all the trans-noise, : let's close our spaces to those transguys, let's close our advocacy group and non profit to those transguys, let's remove them from rights march and celebration and the feminism will get just better !The 90's melting pot is over kids : the lesbo mamas do not want you around any more !
Well the next step for FTM is not feminism but Fatherhood see there:*http://thinkindigo.wordpress.com/*http://transdaddy.wordpress.com/The trans daddy fad is officially launched and will be the new black in 2011 !
[T does not fool your brain (and sometimes not even your next neighboor) who still is female...]No amount of hormones will make a female brain into a male one or vice-versa. I firmly believe that.[let's close our spaces to those transguys, let's close our advocacy group and non profit to those transguys, let's remove them from rights march and celebration and the feminism will get just better!]Many people seem to have trouble switching their minds over from what is between somebody else's legs. If they ID as men and receive that privilege, I do not see why they should reap any of the fringe benefits of having been born female. It is rather like giving up your citizenship to a country.On that note though, I do not understand why MTFs should be excluded entirely when some of us genuinely want to participate. It seems to be a better idea overall to allow us to shift over to helping women, instead of forcing us to stay with this deranged, sinking ship of a community. All that makes for is an increasing amount of this trans cult-like nonsense, as opposed to properly naturalized women.
Trans politics are hyper-conservative and anti-feminist but I believe in the long run they will HELP feminism in the same way that Randall Terry's Operation Rescue helped push most of the country towards a pro-choice opinion in the 1980s. Overblown rhetoric and dubious tactics can help undecided bystanders examine and solidify their positions. If enough girls say "Hey- I don't want to be treated the way girls are treated so I'm going to disguise myself as a boy" maybe awareness of the way females are treated will become more examined by the public at large.
@ anon 9:06that is horrifying
@December 28, 2010 9:06 AMhow is transmen wanting to have children going to be some sort of cultural fad? maybe there could be an increase in men wanting to be "daddys" and whatnot but whos to say that they wouldnt feel the desire to have children regardless of their identity. maybe an influx of transmen becoming fathers may be related to expanding alternative methods of having children, it just doesnt seem to make sense.
