“And things got a bit violent”

I usually try to avoid using gendered pronouns when talking about trans people, particularly on twitter. Sometimes I tie myself in knots to avoid using ‘he’ or ‘she’, or I use cop-outs like ‘they’. I realise this is a bit silly, but I’m followed by a fair few people on twitter who are agnostic on the trans debate, and I want to avoid alienating them from the get-go. In some cases I’ll use preferred pronouns as a show of respect, particularly to my trans friends, both online and offline. I see it as a fairly minor issue, and I don’t want to get too bogged down in the details. But I can’t bear to call Frank Maloney ‘she’. I just can’t.

For those of you who haven’t come across Frank Maloney before, I’ll quickly summarise – he is where the trans ideology has led us. This is…

Working hard to address male violence… or not…

There is a group of dedicated men who are intent on addresssing male violence against women, working to reduce the numbers.

Unfortunately, as we know, most violence on this planet is committed by males. 98% of the harm done to women is done to them by men. So at first glance it would seem a very worthy cause and we should be applauding these men.

It’s just such a shame that the way they address male violence against women is not by addressing males, but by reclassifying males as females. Magically, by way of their laydeefeelz, these men: http://terfisaslur.com/ are now no longer counted as males violent against females, but as women violent against women.

Needless to say these Gender Performing Conservative males are not women. But they certainly have lawmakers in virtually every country bamboozled into making sure males have unfettered access to female safe spaces and that those males are classified as women perpetrating violence against women.

Why do you THINK we want sex-segregated safe spaces?

From: Long-Term Follow-Up of Transsexual Persons Undergoing Sex Reassignment Surgery: Cohort Study in Sweden (2011)

“Second, regarding any crime, male-to-females had a significantly increased risk for crime compared to female controls (aHR 6.6; 95% CI 4.1–10.8) but not compared to males (aHR 0.8; 95% CI 0.5–1.2). This indicates that they retained a male pattern regarding criminality. The same was true regarding violent crime. By contrast, female-to-males had higher crime rates than female controls (aHR 4.1; 95% CI 2.5–6.9) but did not differ from male controls. This indicates a shift to a male pattern regarding criminality and that sex reassignment is coupled to increased crime rate in female-to-males. The same was true regarding violent crime.”

Research that needs support!

Josien de Bie does incredibly important work on the differences between men and women and their health.

She is a Neuroscientist unravelling the effects of sex hormones on the brain.

Have you ever noticed that men and women are different? if you haven’t.. maybe go google that first (I am not taking responsibility for any disturbing images you might find). If you have, congratulations, you are now with me at the forefront of science.

We are finding out that men and women are different in the way they get sick. The kind of diseases they get, when they get them, even how long they live. What we don’t know, is why.

So, what makes us men and women in the first place?
Basically, our sex hormones; oestrogen and testosterone and the like.

So what do sex hormones do to the brain? We don’t know. And that’s what I want to find out.

Please go here to pledge anything you can miss to support her work. We need the kind of research Josien does!

Pledge any sum you can miss to support Josien’s work on sex-differences in health!

Autogynokardashian: Where “Always Was” meets “Whatever the Hell I Want”

Corine Judkins:

“What Jenner has done is to demonstrate, with excessive optical help, that “becoming woman” is Autogynokaradashian — the self fashioning of object-ideal into subject-body. In order to achieve this, sex differences must be emptied out, and “woman” denied of material meaning. To cover up this loss requires a recovery — the smuggling back in of sexist stereotypes, right through the front door of a major magazine.”

“As they are now, so will you be, wigged, singed, perfumesprayed, ricepowdered, with smoothshaven armpits. Tape measurements will be taken next your skin. You will be laced with cruel force into vicelike corsets of soft dove coutille, with whalebone busk, to the diamond trimmed pelvis, the absolute outside edge, while your figure, plumper than when at large, will be restrained in nettight frocks, pretty two ounce petticoats and fringes and things stamped, of course, with my houseflag, creations of lovely lingerie …”  — james joyce, ulysses, “circe” episode

Let’s suppose I had a friend — male, mid 60s, sincerely questioning whether transition is the route to go after a lifetime of confessed confusion (including an aborted run on hormones thirty years ago). He wants to discuss things openly, yet requests I refer to him by his male name, male pronouns, and so forth. He shyly plays with his hair…

How to bungle up anti-genderism, with puppet “feminist” Noah Berlatsky.

Corine Judkins:

Gender is not a performance and it’s not a binary; it’s the fist that hits and the flesh that bruises. Multiplying the variety of fists will not preserve the flesh.

Noah Berlatsky, the sleazy Playboy writer who calls himself a “feminist” and thinks women only matter when they give him erections.

Playboy writer and all-around puppet “feminist” Noah Berlatsky has written a contemptible article decrying anti-genderism, with all the usual straw men and hand-wringing. I am only interested in what Berlatsky has to say insofar as it reflects the commonplace “intellectual” views about anti-genderism, and if the conversation is to advance on this topic, we need to debunk this nonsense thoroughly.

The first issue that confronts us is, what is anti-genderism? What does it mean to abolish gender? In order to do so, we need to have a good understanding of what gender is. Unfortunately, Berlatsky, like most “intellectuals” who deign to discuss this topic, does not:

The problem here is a conceptual error. Radical feminists look at gender oppression and say, we must abolish gender. But it’s not the…
