"Look, I may be a whiny, baby-faced gay man, but thanks to transgender identity politics, by simple virtue of not identifying as a 'she,' I'm finally recognized by other men as a REAL oops I mean CIS MAN."

"Then here come these meanie feminists saying ANY adult human male is a real man!"

"Men don't like that! They like to think they were born with manbrains, so their dominance over women is only natural! And if you just let them think that, they'll be happy and let me bro out with them! Whereas if you question the innateness of dominance to maleness, that'll make them mad! Then they won't bro out with me! They'll want to kick ME out of the man box!!"

"History is sure gonna be upset with you feminists for beings so mean to me!"

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.

[Relocated from thenewbacklash]

Which female people are not considered "cis women" by the male supremacists running this backlash?

Those female people whose lack of femininity means they serve no use value to men, often but not always butch lesbians, now being pressured to identify as transmen. Read more:

Here's how I feel about this phenomenon:


Butch lesbians - and all other "masculine" women - are perfect just the way they are, and men can't have them, they are ours.

Feminist: Male and female humans are socialized differently. Male socialization results in male privilege.

Transwoman: Untrue! I was bullied as a child for not being masculine! My girlhood was stolen from me!

Feminist: First of all, girls are bullied if they are not feminine enough, and also bullied if they are feminine enough, because femininity is all about subjugation. Female socialization is the process of grooming girls for the subordinate sex class “woman.” Your fantasy that being female would have saved you from being bullied is just that, a fantasy. 

Secondly, being bullied for a lack of masculinity is an experience of boyhood. Male socialization is the process of grooming boys for the dominant sex class “man.” Part of that socialization is the idea that all males are naturally dominant, so there must be something wrong with boys who are not dominant. This is a lie. There is nothing wrong with boys who are not dominant – which is to say, not masculine. It's the bullies who are wrong.

Thirdly, that bullying, as awful as it is, does not erase male privilege. This is illustrated very clearly by the behavior of transwomen who:

1)  Rather than build their own movement, expect women to center them in feminism;
2)  Do not read any feminist texts before mansplaining gender -- in fact redefining the word entirely -- to feminists.
3)  Overwrite the misery of feminine socialization with their own fantasy of easy girlhood;
4)  Demand women give up any language to describe our female biology;
5)  Demand lesbians have sex with a be-penised individual if that individual thinks his penis is female;
6)  Demand women budge over and make room every time men want to exclude a male person from manhood;
7)  Express violently misogynistic sentiments whenever these demands are denied;
8)  And are still treated as the most oppressed people ever by the mainstream Left.

Transwoman: She's a TERF! Go after her job!

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.

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.

There are, of course, a slew of new editorials out which purport to explain the difference - the identity politickers of the Left are tying themselves in pretzels to justify transgenderism while decrying transracialism, even though they have made this bed:


Anyhoo, the difference between how the Left treats transgenderism and transracialism is both simple and obvious.

Rachel is a villain because the Left does not believe in black brains (or at least - they know better than to admit such a belief.)

Bruce is a hero because the Left does believe in lady brains.

What's the difference between the idea of black brains and the idea of lady brains?

"Black brain" erases the experience of racist socialization. Some men experience racist socialization, so that experience cannot be erased.

"Lady brain" erases the experience of feminine socialization. No men experience feminine socialization, so that experience can be erased, with glee.

This is also why we can have an essay on how Rachel Dolezal is not a black woman because she did not grow up as a black girl, when no such standard holds for Laverne Cox or Janet Mock.

HTH!

[More thorough take on this issue here: Sex and Race and Boundaries on the Left.]

Editing to add: For those asking why Dolezal couldn't work for civil rights and socialize with black people as a white person: 1) I agree, and 2) Why are we not allowed to ask why Jenner couldn't simper in expensive lingerie on a magazine cover as a man?
