Less than Classy Classicist Mary Beard believes in Homer but not Homosexuals!

Story about Mary was well to tell
She seemed to scheme for a dream to sell...

In the ongoing work Mrs Dirt, myself and now-other fed up Lesbians are doing to unSTRAIGHTen Lesbian from the historical/present clutches of STRAIGHTBIANS/RadFems/Feminists, the amount of anger/hatred/dismissiveness and outright Homophobia we have/are receiving is staggering. One of the most recent attacks on Lesbian came in what at first seemed a VERY unlikely place-teacher/writer Mary Beard by way of her Twitter account. I say unlikely because what I knew of Mary Beard had to do with her, some years back being viciously (with misogyny aforethought/aforeafter!) attacked on Twitter/social media over her age/looks. And that having been around the time (2013) I had just started using Twitter myself, I didnt read beyond headline tweets/headlines themselves. And given how terribly Mary B. was treated, I didnt think I had to.

But in light of some recent ugly personal exchanges, I took the time to find out EXACTLY why Mary B. was so hatefully attacked, not the classical song and dance Mary B. fiddled to her audience:
To be sure, ‘misogyny’ is one way of describing of what’s going on. (If you go on a television discussion programme and then receive a load of tweets comparing your genitalia to a variety of unpleasantly rotting vegetables, it’s hard to find a more apt word.) But if we want to understand – and do something about – the fact that women, even when they are not silenced, still have to pay a very high price for being heard, we have to recognise that it is a bit more complicated and that there’s a long back-story.
Yes indeed, there is a long back story, but it isnt to found in classical Greece or Rome, it occurred when Miss Mary was on the British TV show Question Time 2013.  On the program Miss Mary had THIS...


...to say regarding a specific British town whose resources have been drained do to mass eastern European immigration. A WOMAN (Rachel-I couldn't just sit there while she said there were no problems-Bull) from the town (Boston) who has seen/experienced first hand the many issues this overflow of immigrants has caused, despite not having a classical education or advanced academic degrees, bravely faced off with the flat dry fixed study Miss Mary raved about/from:

So as it turns out the angry attacks leveled at Mary Beard had less to do with something Odysseus and much more to do with something odious! Sexist/misogynistic comments obviously arent okay, but the emotions/feelings behind those remarks came from the downtrodden hearts of the working class toward someone (in this case Mary Beard) willfully representing the trite elite! Someone who instead of listening to the concerns of real living and breathing town folk, chose instead to make herself (in Het female fashion) a public victim/martyr, except the only steaks the town folk smelt were those sizzling on Mary's plate. 

I say all this to lend clarity by removing the sordid shit stains Miss Mary purposely smeared blotting out our view and to show a pattern of behaviour both of her as a Het female and as an individual.

Earlier this week an online friend/Lesbian compatriot who had been reading various things on an inspiration of hers-Jane Ellen Harrison, had asked a question to Mary Beard on Twitter (who had written one the books our Lesbian compat had been reading) regarding this passage and Jane Ellen Harrison's sexual orientation:
This passage makes clear Mary Beard's flippant Het privileged "own construction" of JEH's sexuality by dismissively likening JEH and other Dykes in her day (and us now) to simply jumping on the latest sex theories bandwagon. In this case Richard von Krafft-Ebing's early theory of inversion, later developed and popularized by Havelock Ellis (were "sexual inversion" actually an influence on JEH it would likely to have been via Ellis and not Krafft-Ebing). What is particularly insulting about this passage regarding inversion is, Mary Beard flatly suggests that had theories of Homosexuality not been made, then the relationships between Lesbians would not have been "prompted" to be LESBIAN (sexual) relationships! Basically, Beard did not/does not want to use historical evidences that would suggest JEH is guilty of being a Dyke. Mary Beard instead chose in her bio on JEH to "transcend" ignore the most core aspect of JEH-her brain. 

Moving on to the Twitter shit storm instigated by the Homosexual denier/Homophobe Mary Beard, using thousands of her Het followers against a few lone Lesbians. There were a good many Homophobic comments from Miss Mary's followers, but I'm not writing about her friends/followers so for the purpose of brevity/clarity (remember that pattern of behaviour I spoke of) I'm focusing on Miss Mary and her anti-Lesbian remarks.

In this screencap you will see the first exchange between our Lesbian compat and Miss Mary:

Miss Mary wrote it was crass to apply homosexuality to JEH, Hekate questions Miss Mary on if there is no judgement on being a Lesbian and there is sufficient evidence to suggest JEH was, why in the hell is it crass to call a Dyke a Dyke??? Moving on...
Miss Mary fully functioning in Het female form tries fruitlessly to toss in a straw wrench by suggesting she just might not be Heterosexual. (In my best faggy impersonation-Oh Mary!) Next!
Miss Mary who has written much about how Women/Women's voices are dismissed by Men, has no qualms whatsoever (with Het privilege securely in hand) about dismissing Lesbian voices/experiences/lives.

Shortly thereafter Mrs Dirt could hold her Lesbian tongue no longer:
After being snowballed by Hetsplaining tom(or is it tam?)foolery, Mrs Dirt wasting her time (hours later) and effort trying to explain Hekate's/hers/mine and Lesbians past/present and future, Lesbian position, watched as her explanations fell on Het ears, did the adult thing and extricated herself by blocking Miss Mary. Clearly Miss Mary was peeved (no fun in poking Lesbians with a stick if they go home):
Dismissing Lesbian to that of just another concept 19th century men came up with, calling Lesbian biology "silly" and unloosing at worst/watching with popcorn in hand at best as her followers who FAR outnumber Dykes, to berate/Hetsplain Lesbian to LESBIANS isnt a "polite disagreement" and there was no "hope for interaction" under such Homophobic conditions!

Mary still couldnt let things go....hmmm:
Bear in mind she was asking a shit ton of Heterosexuals...lol Mary, Mary 'Why ya buggin'?

Interestingly one of Miss Mary's followers more or less calls her out:
 OH, its not Lezzies and Fags Miss Mary has a problem with, its our BIOLOGY! Gotcha!😉 And Miss Mary, the B stands for BEHAVIOUR, not to be confused (as you clearly are) with BIOLOGY! Let me break it down though so hopefully even a Het brained female can get it, BISEXUALS ARE HETEROSEXUALS. Maybe Miss Mary had her hand on a girl's leg once or she kissed a girl and she liked it, but whatever she did/didnt do/dreamed of doing has ZERO to do with having been born with a Homosexual brain. At this point a flustered Miss Mary admits she doesnt think Homosexuals exist beyond some fucked up behaviour:
Mary Beard believes in Homer but not Homosexuals! To every single Gay or Lesbian reading this, Mary Beard's above statement should send pause through every single thing she's written and/or taught. By declaring nature unnatural, Mary Beard isnt simply someone who has studied ancient times, she is someone still actively living there. (And as an aside, Miss Mary utilized a common Het female ploy by calling herself old which suggests her age was negatively brought up when not a single Lesbian brought age into it. All Lesbians involved are either middle aged or older-nice try Mary!)

During her QT debacle Miss Mary said:
Miss Mary, decency whether online or off starts at home. I leave you with more words from Miss Mary:
 Ironically the well-meaning solution often recommended when women are on the receiving end of this stuff turns out to bring about the very result the abusers want: namely, their silence. ‘Don’t call the abusers out. Don’t give them any attention; that’s what they want. Just keep mum,’ you’re told, which amounts to leaving the bullies in unchallenged occupation of the playground.
Consider yourself challenged (pun intended) then Miss Mary.

Het Women's Hatred of Homo Females or How Radical Feminism Held the Door for the Transgender Movement

I'm sharing this recent comment left on Mrs Dirt's blog post Everyday Homophobia and How It Harms Homo Females Every Day, that articulates harsh inner turmoil Homo Females-young and old feel/deal with, in our vast unavoidable experiences with STRAIGHTBIANS/Straight females.
And it is precisely the conclusion drawn (the ONLY conclusion that can be drawn) that has lead myself and a growing number of Homo Females to conclude If you are not Us (Homo Female) then you are against Us!

When I first began blogging nearly 10 years ago now, writing about the many problematics with Transgender/transition I was quickly taken up (up NOT in) by the RadFems. And for a brief moment (an eye blink) I felt hopeful, like there were other females questioning/writing and working to halt/change the deadly Heterosexually driven homophobic solution to all things deemed queer/sexually deviant. I say hopeful because since the mid 1990s I personally witnessed a tide of transition drown core numbers of STRAIGHTBIANS, much in the way AIDS swallowed Gay men in the 80's.

Only this disease wasnt spread by love/lust or contaminated blood, (although both AIDS and Transgender share the same foundation-Homophobia) instead the Lesbian plague was/is supported/spread because of the minority status of Lesbians/Heterocentrism/narcissistic selfishness of privileged (het) Women, who for varying reasons CHOOSE to call/define themselves as Lesbian! A deadly amalgam indeed!

One can only witness the step by step process of
  • (het) Women hunting in  believed Lesbian communities
  • (het) Women preying on vulnerable women believed to be Lesbian.
  • Homo Females with full hearts believing they met Miss Right (rather than Miss Right Now!)
  • STRAIGHTBIANS/Homo Females then changing their names and pronouns to match ones more comfortable (less Lesbian) for Miss Right Now
  • (het) Women using Heterocentric tropes to convince women they believe are Lesbian how much like men they REALLY are
  • (het) Women supporting women they believe are Lesbian through medical transition drug changes/surgeries with glee
  • (het) Women going back to men when all was said and done
I'm not speaking of merely STRAIGHTBIANS and Homo Females on a computer screen, but known flesh and blood! Many of whom because they transitioned decades ago are now dead or ill from transition drugs/surgeries.

So to find (what I thought) were other females fighting the good fight, I was hopeful together we could really bring these issues to the forefront of the Lesbian community/Lesbian leaders (since many of these Women claimed to be Lesbians themselves or Lesbian/ allies) and once again common sense would be put in its rightful place.

What I found instead was a collection of sterile/ineffective/infertile circular verbiage that went 'round and 'round like a not-so-merry merry-go-round, accompanied by a butt load of Women nearly breaking their own arms to pat themselves on their proverbial backs! At first it seemed as though they werent hearing the harrowing words/stories I was telling. I distinctly remember being reminded of stories I had read where a Jew would escaped a death camp and make their way to a nearby village warning other Jews that down the road a few miles Germans are mass exterminating Jews, only to be met with pure disbelief/uninterest.

What I soon realized was the disinterest didnt stem from disbelief, but disinterest since those being slowly murdered werent the RadFems who called themselves lesbian, but Homo Females themselves-who were undesired/unwanted. Therefore it wasnt exactly a shocker to realize I was the ONLY Homo Female specifically writing about STRAIGHTBIANS and Homo Females transitioning and the circumstances that made Lesbian transition ripe. RadFems then/now were very much like 70's RadFems, having fun playing at a Homophobic Hetsplained IDEA of Lesbian (hairy armpits/legs, Paul Bunyan outfit, Moe Howard hairdo with a HEAVY focus on Men...Men men men-patriarchy patriarchy patriarchy-MRA MRA MRA)!

And very much like the Homo Female experience with RadFems/Feminists 40 years ago, if a Homo Female dared to suggest a course or plan of action for combating the Men/Patriarchy/MRAs who RadFems claimed were a problem, we were soon dismissed and put on RadFem/Feminist shit lists. If a Homo Female dared to even try to inject some Homo Female reality into RadFem/Feminists warped watered down notion of us, we were/are told we were/are acting like men! For me personally, putting Homo Females first, I knew I would fall out of favour quickly with the RadFem/Feminists, whom I  quickly realized were/are as Radical as they were/are Feminist, which is to say they were/are neither.

RadFems/Feminists past (RadFem/Feminists today ignore these facts) jumped on the John Money-brains-have-no-sex bandwagon because they passively were handed an explanation-gender-(FROM MEN) on why men run the world and not them-SOCIALIZATION not Biology! They didnt care this info came from known MALE pedophiles whose "studies" consisted of boy twins being forced to act out Heterosexual male/female sex roles and pedophiles masturbating infants to see how long it took them to get an erection! Studies that as quick as they were published were soon found to have been fudged by said pedophiles. RadFems/Feminists then, like now didnt give a flying fuck, they heard what they wanted to hear and damn anyone/everyone saying anything different!

The foolish thinking was if sex (biology) could be removed from discourse and replaced with gender (socialization) then the unfair advantages males have utilized over females would level out and eventually Women would be equal with Men. Feminist leaders like Bella Abzug even took this thinking to the larger stage of  UN conference/s:
"The concept of gender is embedded in contemporary social, political and legal discourse. ….The meaning of the word gender has evolved as differentiated from the word sex to express the reality that women’s and men’s roles and status are socially constructed and subject to change…The current attempt by several Member States to expunge the word gender from the Platform for Action and to replace it with the word sex is an insulting and demeaning attempt to reverse the gains made by women, to intimidate us, and to block further progress. We urge the small number of male and female delegates seeking to side-track and sabotage the empowerment of women to cease this diversionary tactic. They will not succeed. They will only waste precious time. We will not go back to subordinate inferior roles."
Twenty GENDER-NOT-SEX years later and grown men are using the Ladies, a Man is woMAN of the year, business's are being sued for using CORRECT pronoun usage and Female biology/biological functions are up for grabs or forbidden to use altogether. The ever growing patronage surrounding Transgender medically/socially/legally proliferated beyond the hallways of John Hopkins and the like because Radical Feminist/Feminist simultaneously Green lighted Gender while road blocking Sex.
Its horrifically obvious Radical Feminists/Feminists were/are as versed in the rules of Chess, in as much as Hitler was the game Risk. Perhap Hitlerian too, Radical Feminist/Feminist's dont care about the fallout, dont care about any damages their nonsense creates for Biological Homosexual Females, and dont care the war has been long lost.
  • Gender didnt open doors for Women, men did (mannered ones still do so today).
  • Gender didnt level any playing field, unless you count the Girls sports fields now dominated by male players.
  • Gender didnt change who has babies and who is still the primary caretakers of children.
  • Gender didnt change male's unabated lusts. Although technologies (created/lead mostly by males) made temporary satiating those lusts easier.
  • Gender didnt make Women any more powerful. Although technologies have highlighted globally how collectively impuissant Het Women are. 
  • Gender didnt stop males from raping/abusing animals/children/adults/the earth.
  • Gender hasnt in fact provided Het Women with anything in the form of a positive, past or present.
Forty plus years of RadFems/Feminists (Het Women) using Gender to change the world to their mercurial whims and nada. Less than ten years of Het Males using Gender and they're woMen of the year! Thats not hyperbole, thats biology!

A few days ago this was said about me by two RadFem/Feminists:
 
If we set aside their narrow Hetsplaining of Dyke, coupled with their obvious Homophobia, by their own heterocentric logic, their invalidation of me as female (eschewing all (Het) female/feminine tropes equals not female) they validate any male who does likewise (expunge all male/masculine tropes equals woMAN). This example, in a nutshell, assisted in how Radical Feminism/Feminism gentlemanly held the door open for Trans Males to clumsily Kitten Heel over the corpses (living and dead) of Lesbians and Gays, and continue doing so today.

Radical Feminism's/Feminism's entire warped anti-biology tenet says at once that Lesbian is behavioural/choice (behaviour that involves a sexual relationship between two females) and that biological males can in fact be women since biology is irrelevant to brain non sexed plasticity. When males took the Gender ball from them and ran for a touchdown, RadFems/Feminists screamed from their lung tops TRANS WOMEN ARE NOT WOMEN. So RadFems/Feminists had to change their tune of anti essentialism/anti-biology to include the lived experience of woman in flimsy effort to stop trans males from using RadFems/Feminists ideas to beat them at their own game, which by the way they have. And by calling trans males even some part of woman legitimated that these men were in fact to some extent-woMEN. This lead some RadFems/Feminists to use MTT-male-to-trans in a too late in the game last ditch effort to stop Trans males from scoring the ultimate touchdown. Obviously by assigning (in social media only) trans males to a nebulous gender spectrum, trans males could still retain their bought and paid for womanness because MTT rants from passive/aggressive Het Women fell on deaf ears.

There are a shit ton more of Het Women than there are Homo Females, and it is they who primarily give birth to the world of humans, not us. It is THEY who have the power (were they able to think/process beyond their Heterosexually driven brains/bodies) to make the future a better place for people, animals and earth. Five thousand plus years of wash/rinse/repeat suggests to me they cannot function beyond their Heterosexuality and therefore are not only NOT a friend/ally of Homo Females, they arent to anyone, including themselves.

I dont say all this to make Homo Females feel hopeless. I say this because like the commenter quoted at the beginning of this post, despite the growing number of Homo Females who have realised IF YOU ARE NOT US, YOU ARE AGAINST US is true, there are still far too many Homo Females asleep at the wheel. Homo Females present and future deserve the benefits from knowing/understanding being female alone isnt enough to bond over with Het females or Het females who self ID as lesbian, and that it is biologically IMPOSSIBLE for them (Het Females) to do so.

Lesbians: SEEING the Forest because we are Not Trees

While using some examples from a few recent Twitter hoo-hahs, this post is by no means limited to these examples, they merely highlight issues Lesbians have been dealing with whenever we point out the obvious to (het) Women/Feminists for centuries.

The case in point occurred over several days when responding to feminist's talk blather about "male violence". Clearly as Lesbians we are all too aware that much of the violence perpetuated on the world/its inhabitants has been (het) male driven and (het) female supported (in varying ways). Lesbians pointing out the latter are ALWAYS met by (het) Women (quite literally) hysterics by conversations end.

I do not limit these observations/experiences simply to the internet, but to MANY (as I'm getting long in the tooth by the second!) decades of personal LESBIAN experience plus the personal lifetime experiences of fellow Lesbians and centuries of Lesbians past. And I do not doubt the experiences of Lesbians past with (het) Women, because I too have the same experiences with them every single day of my life for as long as I have had memory. But lets say for the sake of argument I did not, I would only have to open my eyes in the morning, or open a book or look out my window or step out my door to see for myself how Heterosexuals of both sexes have impacted the world via action/passivity. What is also blatant is which Hetero sex has predominantly used action and which passivity.

Digressing back to the Twitter incidents I first mentioned, when someone who had followed me made a slew of statements about "male violence" I made a few comments back about regarding (het) Women's role in bearing those males and raising them. This didnt go over too well with the (het) Woman in question and as has been the ongoing Lesbian experience when trying to have an honest conversation about male violence/birth control etc, like the steps of grief, there is a set of steps that (het) Women go through when Lesbians do not agree with their every word/challenge their Heterocentric thought processes:

Step 1) They either think you (meaning Lesbians) are male or they will insultingly pretend to think you're male. This Tweet was in reference to me:
Step 2) Then when pointed out we (in this case me) is a Lesbian, comes the all purpose blame-the-Dyke/s-excuse/s:
Step 3) Even after knowing we are Lesbians, make insulting paper thin comparisons to us (Lesbians) with men:

Step 4) Claim Lesbian/s are attacking them/see insults where none exist:
Step 5) When their behaviour reaches the bizarre, their Homophobic responses reach extremes and their Lezbophobia is called out, they Block/run for the hills:
Step 6) Incite other (het) Women to attack the mean Lesbian/s which then runs a similar course and...
around we go!
And these are (het) Women whom on the surface claim to be Lesbian allies, they, like most (het) Women arent even allies to themselves, but most certainly they are NOT Lesbian allies!

Pointing out differences in brain functions between Lesbians and (het) Women isnt hate, it is obviously important for LESBIANS (Lesbian even when highly flustered/frustrated and angry still maintain linear thinking/conversing) to know in order to help Lesbians better traverse (het) Women in our/their lives.

I suspect the hysterics/all loss of reason (het) Women go into when confronted with Lesbians occurs because, unlike the males in their lives who (and we Lesbians have ALL heard a male in our lives say when arguing a point with a (het) female friend/relative-"just let it go, its not worth it") will just let the point go to regain peace/not have to listen to grousing. Lesbians not being trained in (het) Women like young males are by older males, we Lesbians will continue to make our point and in sticking by our guns, most (het) Women will become hysterical. This behaviour in and of itself illustrates some of the biological differences between Lesbians and (het) Women.

Were it merely arguing over what tastes better, Coke or Pepsi with (het) Women, maybe Lesbians could simply let it go. But where Lesbian lives are at stake, Lesbian biology, Lesbian accuracy? Then NO, we will not let it go! We will fight to the proverbial death if it means providing accurate information that can benefit other Lesbians! And Lesbians knowing whom they can and cannot trust can be a matter of LIFE or DEATH!

The biological realities of Heterosexual Males and Females is all around us, it is infantile to think (Het) Males just bulldozed their way throughout time (patriarchy) and (het) Women had no say in the making of that world whatsoever. (het) Women created and continue to create humans everyday, if they really did fear/hate the (het) male population/male violence as much as they claim, then they could have LONG ago stopped the male population from existing in large numbers. Males do not bear children, but using their male biology, they have in the course of a few decades halted the births of millions of females being born. But again, obviously (het) Women played a passive role in that.

Dykes on the other hand wouldnt be alive today if our brains processed in the same way as (het) female brains function, (het) female passivity would actively get us killed or silenced. Lesbians may not be male, but we are action oriented, even the shyest among us. Lesbians do not rebel against patriarchy. Lesbians arent Lesbians because we are brave. Lesbians do not stand up to men.We stand separate from EVERYBODY. That does not mean we are alone, but it does mean we are a unique biological entity. Lesbians SEE the forests, because none of us are trees.

With Lesbians Like Sue Perkins Who Needs Enemies?!

Funny gal Sue Perkins did a recent interview touching on her coming out experience. Sue P. actually wrote/performed a six episode comedy series (Heading Out) based loosely on her own difficult coming out experience. Given that Sue Perkins is about as smart as she is funny, as a Lesbian, its sad to see Sue P. ignorant or careless about Homosexuality, hers and in and of itself.

Instead she reduces sexual orientation down to "fluidity" (Really Sue??). Did you fret for 28 years over fluidity??? Have Homosexual youths since the beginning of Humans committed suicide over fluidity??? Are Homosexuals past/present and future routinely attacked/murdered over fluidity? Are Homosexual children today being labeled by parents/varying authorities as Transgender because of fluidity?? Are self hating (not unlike yourself) Homosexual adults transitioning so they can fit in over fluidity???

More insulting, Sue P. goes further by stating she is "hugely cheered by the fact my goddaughter has friends at school who are pansexual". Pansexual isnt a sign of progress Sue; its a sign of child sexual abuse, a sign of neglect, a sign of acute attention seeking and various other emotional issues, but it certainly isnt a sign of progress, let alone a fucking sign of progress for Homosexuals!

And in fact as a public Homosexual (you Sue!) linking Homosexuality with (in the minds and hearts of the general public and Psychiatry alike) debauchery aka Pansexuality, you in one fell swoop reinforced the long held notions/feelings that not only is Homosexuality a choice, BUT that Homosexuality is the sick fucking perversion Heterosexuals always and STILL believe it/us to be!

Sue leaves the topic of Homo/sexuality with this ditty "I don’t know but it doesn’t matter. I always thought it was a spectrum and I have been furious and dumbfounded I had to make a binary choice". It seems what you're furious about Sue Perkins, is that you were/are unable to make a choice because choice isnt an option! But were it an option, I can only think you Sue Perkins, would err on the side of Heteros.

Lastly Sue says of coming out-"Why should people have to go through this painful stressful archaic ritual of going home to their parents and telling them they are having sex". Well Sue, if reducing Homosexuality/Lesbian to nothing more than what two Lesbians (or two Females of any sexual orientation) do in bed, then you have more fucking problems than your own self hatred!

Whats the Deal with Lesbians and Packing?

A reader wrote to me asking about my thoughts on Lesbians who Pack (and no she wasnt talking about for vacation!). Since this is something that occasionally is searched for on this blog, I figured it a good opportunity for me to address it.


There are basically two types of Dykes that pack and one of them isnt Homosexual!

Type A Packer-Lesbians who pack almost always fall into the mid-range Dyke category. These Dykes have HUGE insecurity issues.
  • Sometimes resulting from child sexual abuse-As a Dyke, sexual abuse from a male/s would make her feel (besides the expected trauma) incongruous and strangely homophobic. Her natural Female Homosexuality would feel compromised, feeling similar to young males who are molested by adult males. The molestation for a Dyke would feel, for lack of a better word- queer. These Dykes feel the need to cover/hide their privates and by doing so with a packer (usually late teens/young adults) feel (in a warped way that by packing they are re-solidifying the Dykeness they feel that was lost from the sexual abuse). This may seem like a way back to a healthier them, except its merely a wash/rinse and repeat-growth beyond packing never occurs. 
  • Sometimes resulting from acute Heterosexual Dysphoria-They pathologise their fears of not measuring up to Het men coupled simultaneously with their fears of measuring too close to Het Women. Mid-range Dyke is a delicate balancing act, they arent Dykey enough to routinely pass (as male) and they arent Dykey enough not to pass as Het Women. Most mid-range Dykes traverse these unspoken Lesbian growing pains just fine. But for those with greater insecurity issues, packing may provide them with a false sense of security. And depending on the level of insecurity may even lead them down the road to transition
  • Sometimes resulting from coupling with STRAIGHTBIANS-The all too sexually abused/Hyper-sexual STRAIGHTBIAN is as notorious for their Lesbian ignorance as they are for the Het privilege they feel exempts them from learning/caring about Lesbian experience/culture beyond their own notions of it. STRAIGHTBIANS cant see past their own Heterosexuality (warped though it may be) and as such view Dykes/put Dykes in the male role of their favorite fantasy/fairy tale. Where insecure Dykes will unfortunately try to please their STRAIGHTBIAN by living up to her male (sexual) fantasy. Most Dykes rarely pack before dating a STRAIGHTBIAN, few however leave a relationship with a STRAIGHTBIAN without packing.
 Bear in mind, a Dyke may suffer from one or all of these.

Type B Packer-Type B's are Heterosexual Women that claim they are Dykes.
  • Type B's are exclusively sexually abused as children. But unlike Dykes (sexually abused or otherwise), packing for Type B's is at once protection, sexual and power over other Women.
  • Type B's usually partner with other STRAIGHTBIANS (both buying the Lesbian lie they tell each other). 
  • Type B's however are the more rare of the STRAIGHTBIAN sect. Their personality is formed from a more right brained temperament thats has been severely sexually abused. As such they take the butch or masculine role they Heterosexually perceive Lesbians to be. 
  • Type B's are exclusively/pathologically interested/invested in BDSM where they are the master and the other STRAIGHTBIAN the submissive. 
  • Type B's are turned on by harming/hurting other Women. They see Women as weak and malleable and as persons who should be punished for such helplessness. They are dominant, therefore they cannot be Straight. Sadistic and Narcissistic.
  • Type B's will sometimes engage in sexual encounters with Gay men in effort to satisfy their natural Heterosexuality. Usually in secret, but not always.
  • Type B's were some of the earliest "lesbians" to transition. And remain high on the list for transition still.
  • If transgender, the testosterone increases both their hyper sexuality and their hatred and anger against Women.
  • Most often Borderlines. (BPD) But their symptoms resemble more Hetero Male Borderlines than they do Het Female Borderlines, which can confuse diagnosis if they seek professional help.
Obviously this is not an in-depth post but it should give readers a very good starting point on why some Females pack.

The Maudes-Portrait of a STRAIGHTBIAN

Being an online public sorta (dare I say controversial) figurehead, in running/maintaining a long standing blog, I am exposed to a good deal of people/people types. In the STRAIGHTBIAN series/posts that both Mrs Dirt and I have written/collaborated, there is a type we (despite both of us having met online/realtime a good many in our respective lives) have neglected to mention/describe-The Maudes. Maudes are Women (always heterosexual) who frolicked in the fields of early 70's Women's Lib/Radical (lesbian) Feminism. These bra burning RadFems believed they were changing the world for Women everywhere by squatting over hand mirrors together as they searched for extraterrestrial life....errr I mean their cervix.
 
We call them Maudes because of their close resemblance (physically/temperament and personality) to the 70's TV character Maude Findlay. The lyrics to the Maude theme song adequately describe The Maudes as well it does Maude herself:

Lady Godiva was a freedom rider,
she didn't care if the whole world looked.
Joan of Arc, with the lord to guide her,
she was a sister who really cooked.
Isadora was a first bra burner
Aint' ya glad she showed up?
And when the country was falling apart
Betsy Ross got it all sewed up
And then there's Maude
And then there's Maude
And then there's Maude

And then there's that uncompromisin' enterprisin' anything but traqulizin' Right on Maude!!! 

The song uses strong historical Female archetypes who in some way trail blazed for future Women, and then there's Maude! The Maudes however are not Joan of Arc's or Isadora Dunkin's, they were once over the top passionate about Women voting/Women construction workers, Women's conscious raising groups, Women's Grass roots, Women's music, Women's land, Women CEO's or Women Presidents, but born with Hetero Female biology, their passion exceeded their limits. The lesbian separatist utopia they so dreamed, never materialized beyond flimsy plans, loads of back patting/emotional reassurances, eschewing femininity by employing poor grooming habits, short hair and plenty O flannel shirts (in other words an insulting Heterosexual version of Dyke).

Maudes are always middle or upper middle class, usually college educated and often live within some ivory tower or other, if not professing Radical Feminist ignorance to unsuspecting college youths, they will work as a college librarian or college clerk. Their Hetero/sexuality is usually tangled with either early sexual abuses or disinterest/discomfort with perceived male dominance (sexual or otherwise), meaning they want to run-the-fuck/relationship yet fear doing so in male/female relationships. They believe they want some egalitarian relationship which Radical Feminism ensures can ONLY happen between Women-ie in order to have equality in their personal life they must CHOOSE to be a Lesbian. So along with eschewing their femininity, they also eschewed all common sense, thereby eschewing their own selves.

Most Maudes today are more passion-less, often bitter and thoroughly disappointed in where their youthful exuberance has went.  And worse, angry because where Women's Lib did open some doors for future Women, young Women today use their equality more to sport shorter skirts and higher high heels and fuck on the first date, than they do to advance their careers or pay tribute to The Maudes (who sacrificed so much!), that is IF they even know of any worth paying tribute to. The invisibility young Maudes claimed to have once so desperately craved (fuck the male gaze), are now dourer because they have it.

Most Maudes chose to be childless (that'll teach patriarchy!), so now starring old age in the face (many today are in their early to mid 60's), they are bitter, sad and afraid. The world they thought they were going to change via Radical Feminism, changed while they stood still. And if they hadnt with hetero privilege intact co-opted Lesbian, I might even feel sorry for them, might.
