I am so sick of Lefty dudes.

On Twitter today there's yet another Lefty dude mansplaining to a woman about how she is a bigot for objecting to laws allowing any self-labeled transwoman to have access to private spaces set aside for female people. He keeps telling her that *heterosexual males* are the ones of whom to be afraid, blissfully unaware that the vast majority of people calling themselves transwomen 1) have and like their penises, 2) desire to put those penises into vaginas, and 3) consider the putting of their penises into vaginas a human rights issue.

He is of course, also claiming that no transwoman has ever been a threat to women.

He is, of course, also lumping this woman in with religious conservatives. Because we are only allowed two choices, you see. We can either go with the Right and accept that all men must be masculine and all women must be feminine, or we can go with the Left and accept that all masculine people must be men and all feminine people must be women. It's not like we could 1) recognize that "masculine" is code for "dominant," "feminine" is code for "submissive," and the masculine/feminine paradigm is about males oppressing females; and then 2) ditch the sexing of personality traits and just let everybody be themselves, women and men with diverse personalities, in a society that is not obsessed with eroticizing dominance and submission.

We could never do those things, because then men like him would lose their entitlement to lecture women on our supposed moral failings while they themselves 1) spout ignorance, 2) ignore facts and 3) continue both benefiting from and enforcing the very male supremacy to which we are objecting.

9 out of 10 conversations with Lefty dupes about bathroom bills


LD: Look at this picture of a transitioned, passing transman. You're gonna make this person who totally looks like a dude use the women's room. That's going to frighten women! That's wrong!*
Me: So it's wrong for someone who looks like a dude to use the women's room?
LD: Of course!
Me: Here are photographs of ten transwomen who are obviously male. Some have taken no steps to transition and even still wear beards. Some are convicted criminals. Do they belong in the women's room?



LD: Those aren't really transwomen.
Me: A transwoman is any male who simply claims to "feel like a woman." Here is a chart of gender identity laws and a page full of social media screencaps that back up this definition.
LD: No man is going to fake being trans just to enter the women's room.
LD: Well those aren't real transwomen, they're just men faking it to get into women's restrooms.
Me: You just said that never happens.
LD: Fumes. Look, we can't force transwomen to share bathrooms with men, men are dangerous!
Me: I agree men are dangerous, which is why we need to write gender identity laws that make sure they are not allowed free entry into female spaces.
LD: God, why are you so paranoid about sharing a bathroom with men?
Me: You just said men are dangerous.
LD: WHATEVER, YOU ARE A BIGOT!!!

~*End scene: It is bigoted to name male violence as the problem.*~


*Nobody is actually checking genitals, which means transpeople who pass aren't effected. Also, someone who has transitioned but doesn't pass can still acquire opposite-sex designation on their official documents. Either way, actual transpeople can continue using their preferred restroom.

Your meme is stupid, and it makes you look stupid.

So many clueless Leftists are posting this meme in the wake of House Bill 2 in North Carolina:


1) This fully transitioned transman would have no problem using the men's room. Not only does he pass, he could also apply for an amended birth certificate

2) If you think it's wrong for someone who looks like a man to use the women's room, why in the world would you support overly broad gender identity laws, which allow any male who claims to "feel like a woman" to enter female spaces?

Do you think these dudes belong in the women's room? 



STOP BEING SANCTIMONIOUS FOR LONG ENOUGH TO FIND OUT WHAT YOU ARE ACTUALLY SUPPORTING. I LAY IT ALL OUT FOR YOU HERE: thenewbacklash.blogspot.com.

Here's another popular and very stupid meme related to HB2:


Cute, right? Nothing cuter than making light of sexual crimes against children! 

Laverne Cox is not a child predator, but you know who is? Synthia China Blast, for whom Laverne Cox launched a media support campaign.


Blast was a gang member convicted of the rape, murder and abuse of the corpse of 13 year old Ebony Nicole Williams. In prison, he splits his time between petitioning for state-funded SRS and maintaining a romantic relationship with the copycat Zodiac killer, Eddie Seda.

Want more examples of transwomen who have committed crimes against women and children? There are hundreds of documented examples linked from these two blogs: The Politics of Gender and Allison's Law. Please stop saying this never happens, it makes you look foolish at best, and callously dishonest at worst.

OF COURSE NOT ALL TRANSWOMEN ARE CRIMINALS. Some of the best male people I know are transwomen.

HOWEVER.

1) ALL TRANSWOMEN ARE MALE;
2) MALES AS A CLASS ARE A DANGER TO WOMEN AND CHILDREN;
3) THE LABEL "TRANSGENDER" REQUIRES NO MEANINGFUL TRANSITION;
4) TRANSITION DOES NOT RENDER A MALE PERSON HARMLESS.

THE ISSUE IS NOT TRANS PEOPLE USING PUBLIC RESTROOMS.

THE ISSUE IS MALE PEOPLE USING FEMALE RESTROOMS. 

If males are not dangerous, why do we have sex-segregated bathrooms in the first place? And what the Hell do you think actual transwomen are afraid of in the men's room? Evil urinals? No, it's males. If their fears are valid, why piss on the fears of female people??

Most women, including myself, support laws that allow transwomen access to female spaces with 1) documentation of meaningful transition and 2) improper purpose clauses.

This is a more than reasonable compromise.

The only people who have reason to object to this compromise are males who want to access female spaces with no documentation of transition in order to engage in criminal activity. Please stop gaslighting women who want protection from those males.




*Editing to add: if your objections to HB2 are the clauses separate from bathroom access, for goodness' sake wake up and stop allowing all Leftist causes to be chained to the concrete block of overly broad gender identity laws. Thanks.

A note on the most recent kerfuffle


Of course I am sad that someone I considered a friend has rejected the analysis I believed we shared, and is befriending known abusers.

I am also concerned about that person, as I believe she deserves better than those abusers, but I have had to let her go, as I do not want to let those abusers anywhere near my life.

This doesn't mean that I've stopped trusting individual transwomen. I was vilified by at least a dozen women identifying as radical feminists several years ago, and they continue to mock and misrepresent me to this day. But I haven't stopped trusting individual women.

It seems to me that a small group of transwomen and a small group of radical feminists need each other, to define themselves against each other and rage against each other in a pre-determined script that satisfies the identity needs of each party. (I am reminded of Chang and Britta in the "Geography of Global Conflict" episode of Community.)

I'm not interested in being a part of that situation, and I don't think it should frame the larger picture of gender analysis. Gender isn't about "TERFs" vs. AFTAs. Gender is about socializing little boys to grow up to be sadists and little girls to grow up to be masochists. I'm not interested in flipping those roles, I'm interested in abolishing them.

Every man on Earth owes his life to a woman

Every man on Earth owes his life to a woman.

This is a very simple, undeniable fact.

No man would exist if a woman did not do the difficult, dangerous work of incubating him inside her female body.

It doesn't matter if you think your mother was a bad mother. It doesn't matter if she left you on a stranger's doorstep. You would not exist if she did not physically make you.

Ovulation, menstruation, pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding - all part of the biological work women do to continue human life - including yours. Stop acting like they are a sign of weakness or subhumanity. You would not exist without those female biological functions you find so unspeakably gross.

I'm not arguing for matriarchy nor the worship of a mother goddess. I'm simply arguing for recognizing and accepting the fact that every man on Earth owes his life to a woman.

You don't have to "bow down" to women/mothers. Just be mature and honest and grateful enough for the reproductive work that led to your very existence that you won't 1) impose that work on unwilling women; 2) punish that work; 3) denigrate that work; or 4) erase that work.

Thank you and good day.

A conversation between MRAs


MRA1: The most oppressed people on Earth are men like us who are not getting all the male privilege to which our dicks should entitle us.

MRA2: Hear hear! Women don't pay me the attention they owe me. So how do we get them to center us in everything they do?

MRA1: Hear me out. We use transsexuals.

MRA2: Wait, what?

MRA1: We start out simple: "Transwomen are women, period." This makes an opening in the category "woman."

MRA2: Wait, you mean, chicks with dicks?

MRA1: Yeah man, but nevermind porn for a second OK? We say they're just chicks, period. This will be the easy part. Nobody wants to accept that some males are very feminine, nobody even wants to think about SRS. *shivers*

MRA2: Geez, bro.

MRA1: Right? They'll want to hand-wave it all away, like yes, sure, transwomen are women, they're weirdos but I'm liberal and super-tolerant of weirdos like women who think they're just as human as men, black people who think they're just as human as white people, and gay people who think gay sex is normal. *snicker*

MRA2: I don't mind some girl on g-

MRA1: I said nevermind porn for a second! God.

MRA2: Sorry.

MRA1: My point is, they'll just want to shove transwomen into their "approved weirdo box" so they can point to it and feel extra cool!

MRA2: Pfft. Libtards.

MRA1: I know right? Anyway, then we get to the harder part, where we re-define "transwoman."

MRA2: What do you mean?

MRA1: We say that what makes a dude a transwoman is a special feeling inside. A woman feeling.

MRA2: But won't the feminazis protest that there is no "woman feeling"?

MRA1: Yeah, even though we all know women are like delicate little children inside, while men have to be the adults and do all the work and fighting.

MRA2: I know, they have it so easy.

MRA1: Yeah, but we're not allowed to say all that out loud, so instead we just leverage how gross female biology is!

MRA2: OMG periods are so gross.

MRA1: Don't even get me started on breastfeeding.

MRA2: So gross! Boobs are to make my penis happy, not to feed babies!

MRA1: Anyway. We say that to define women as human females is to reduce them to their female parts, which everybody knows are gross.

MRA2: Isn't that like saying the phrase "black people" reduces people to their epidermises?

MRA1: Exactly! And we all know we're supposed to be colorblind, right? We're supposed to pretend black people are human even though they aren't white! We're supposed to pretend women are human even though they aren't male! Liberals want us to politely pretend, well quid pro quo, they should be willing to pretend penises are female!

MRA2: What? No. No way, man! Won't actual transsexuals protest this? I mean, they want SRS, right? Not just to call their penises female?

MRA1: Don't worry about that, nobody wants to listen to a tranny, they'll just want to use trannies as disgust tolerance merit badges!

MRA2: Oh, right. Genius.

MRA1: So, we go for: Anybody with a dick who claims special lady feelings is a transwoman. No dysmorphia required, no transition required. We can claim to be transwomen, but still keep our dicks. If we push it far enough we can even keep our neckbeards.

MRA2: Whoa.

MRA1: I know, right? Feminism is about women. Only women belong in women's spaces. But transwomen are women. And any dude is a transwoman if he says so. So any dude can claim the right to women's attention and care just by claiming special lady feelings!

MRA2: This can't work. Even liberals aren't that dumb.

MRA1: We'll see.

The psychological underpinnings of liberal support for transgender identity politics


It really is this simple:

  • If you aren't disgusted by transwomen, you won't have to lie to yourself about them.
  • If you don't hate women, you won't erase femaleness or feminism.
  • And if you aren't terrified of men, you'll hold them responsible for the violence they commit.

Disgust, hatred and fear. Every emotion you project onto TERFs.

THE CALL IS COMING FROM INSIDE THE HOUSE.
