Okay, I need to sit here at 3 AM and try and grasp this bizarre concept.Of course this does depend on what one considers the correct definition of Transgender and lately I have gotten some rather odd descriptions and a rather heated push-back on another blog about what transgender actually defines. It was a rather weird situation since they claimed that transvestites and cross-dressers were not transgender and in the next breath claimed they fought the Transgender Borg umbrella which left me quizzical about whether they really did understand who is under the transgender umbrella. Anger can make one not think straight and there was and is a lot of anger there.
If transvestites and crossdressers, one and the same in my book, are not under the transgender umbrella then why am I fighting to be free of the transgender umbrella? Why are any of us fighting? The simple truth is we all know the transvestites control the transgender movement. They may disguise themselves as transgender and claim womanhood but they are still men by any standard. If you have a penis and you want to keep it you are a fucking man. End of the fucking story.
I cannot say I would consider myself a card carrying feminist because basically I am not sure what that means. I know I have worked as a woman since I was 23 and some will tell you I worked as one before that for 3+ years after grad school because I was not fooling anyone but we will deal with the facts on this one. I have never been one to ask for anything to be given to me. I prefer to work for it even if one would consider me a trust fund kid.
I look back on the past 43 years and I was a woman working in a basically male dominated career. I did set some precedents and push some issues for women but how important they were are debatable and I am not discussing them here but when I did fight back it was because I felt I was denied my due and as a woman I wanted what I was worth and that might be a core feminist belief. I never asked for anything special because I was born transsexual because I simply considered myself a woman like every other woman I knew.
I am not one of those that believes a man can be a feminist. How can one be a feminist if one does not experience life as a woman and the inherent challenges we face on a daily basis put in front of us by men. There are some feminist issues I will never face but there are natal women that will not face them either but in 43+ years I have both felt some of the inequality in the workplace and that same inequality in society. I am not one that takes no for an answer without asking why.
It is hard enough being a woman but it is even harder when you have men playing woman claiming they should be treated as women and now women have a new threat and yes I see it as a threat. The transgender have tried to destroy the concept of transsexualism and now they are taking aim at the concept of what is a woman.
How are they doing this? Well we women born as I was see it in the simple fact the transgender clowns like Sandeen believe a dress, wig, and makeup makes the woman and not one's physical nature and inner soul. In other words a man in a dress with a penis is as much of a woman as any woman with a vagina. Only a man could pack so much hubris in such a testosterone ladled brain but we see them everywhere. They want access to all women's spaces and they want the world to legislate them as women and force women to accept them as such.
Now they have a new tactic. The new claim is transgender rights and issues are feminist issues. We know they are trying to obfuscate the situation by implying transgender means transsexual because it is convenient but that is just momentary. I am trying to think of one single feminist issue that is relevant to a fucking transvestite and I cannot.
Just how is a man in a dress with a penis in women's spaces a feminist issue? Baffles me!! One can go down the entire list of issues feminists promote and not a one relates to a transvestite but many can and do relate to those of us that have had SRS and actually work and live as functioning women in the world without promoting the fact we were born with a certain condition. I do wonder how these so-called "trans" women will function in a feminist environment. Will feminists be required to call them "trans" feminists because remember they are transgender forever and proud of it.
Are feminists supposed to support late transitioning men who have built a career in business as men and a power base as men. Are we required to support their opinion they should keep the job, title, money, and power they gained as men when they suddenly become Susan? Considering they more than likely have discriminated against women because it is what men do in business in general I somehow think that is a pill feminists cannot swallow.
How can a man that has lived and worked for his 50 years on this planet as a man suddenly claim to be a feminist. It truly baffles me how this is possible but I see it daily on blogs. One can read cross-dresser blogs chiming in about feminism and I have always wanted to ask a simple question. Are you really so fucking stupid that you believe because you are Sally on Friday evening at the local club that caters to you that you have one single concept about what it means to be a woman day in and day out in society? What fucking planet were you born on?
Here is a little clue for all of you. Neither transsexual nor transgender rights have anything to do with feminist rights or issues. That said transsexuals can and do have a kinship with feminists. Those of us with the misfortune to be born a MTF transsexual have or should have only one goal in life. That goal is to become the best woman we can which means SRS and the simple concept of after my SRS I am a woman and all I want is the same rights all my fellow women have. I was not special and neither are any of you. If you do not want to assimilate into womanhood as a woman and not a "trans" woman may I suggest you save your balls and dick and stay with the rest of the men because you seem to have missed the point. It really is not about the cloths asshole.
The transgender want to legislate themselves into being accepted as women and I assume they want the same from feminists. Not about to happen. Ashley Love has a beautiful post about feminism and us and is a must read. The opposing view may be perused here.
This attempt by the transgender to invade women's spaces and feminism is just another attempt by men to get control of the female narrative and to direct it and us to their purpose. Not about to happen to this girl.
