Peak Trans
My experience

I used to support the trans movement, use to try and use all their pronouns. But when I was told that I couldn’t speak about my body because it was triggering, I couldn’t say no to a trans woman without looking like a “bigot.” That their “feelings” of womanhood was more than my lived experience of it. That any disagreement with them made me a “transphobe” I gave up. Their vehement hatered of homosexuals who say they are not attracted to their specific genitals is what really opened my eyes. 

I don’t want anything bad to happen to them, I just don’t want anything at all to do with them. They act no different than privileged men, any kind of criticism is met with violent threats, any kind of refusal to have sex with them is seen as oppression. And any kind of legitimate discussion is met with derailing and opression Olympic tactics.

Dear monosexual people: you are not attracted to chromosomes.  The very idea is laughable.  Seriously why would you claim that at all?  The things you find when browsing “peak trans”…

Honestly I was thinking about submitting to that blog, because I did have a “peak trans” moment of sorts a few years ago, but after looking through it I don’t think “I was vilified and attacked in my own community” is the sort of experience they’re looking for.  There’s one post where the moderator/creator says they’re trans, but most of the submissions appear to be from cis lesbians.

Hi. This blog accepts all sorts of peak trans moments, including those involving trans-on-trans bullying.  However, I must call you out for your homophobia.  So what if a lot of the submissions are from lesbians?  Stop being so lesbophobic, that’s not acceptable.  Lastly, don’t make assumptions about my gender identity.

I’m terrible and a bigot because I’m not attracted to people with penises. I come from a conservative family and struggled with my homosexuality for all my life (I’m 18) and suddenly there are people telling me that I’m a bad person and not a real lesbian. I have to force myself to be attracted to something I don’t like to be a good person, and I have to face people telling me I’m transphobic/cissexist because of my sexual orientation. I feel like I’m living in an ass backwards world. -k

No one is requiring you to be attracted to trans people. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, if the people who were all “you have to sleep with me or you’re transphobic” were cis, I think their personalities would get in the way of people sleeping with them anyway. Because anyone who thinks that you owe them sex is a douchebag. ANYONE, regardless of gender or orientation.

You haven’t been paying attention very closely, because there are a lot of pushy trans women and their subservient toadies who have been bullying people for not being attracted to trans women. Women, in particular lesbians, have been the primary target of these demanding trans women and their cis lackeys.

I find it extremely depressing that the honest and thoughtful lesbian's post re her peak trans moment coming about through simply asking for respect for her sexuality (and being denied such respect) is already being reblogged with comments suggesting she is being "right wing" etc.

Yes, and it’s such a reversal since it’s mostly right-wingers who are shaming lesbians and gays for existing.

I want you to post this anon. please.

I grew disinterested with Trans rights when I saw trans people attacking cisgender people or anyone who is not trans.  I also saw how Trans people would become completely hypocritical and get VERY biphobic, homophobic, and heterophobic and say how if you’re bisexual, gay/lesbian, or straight how you’re automatically transphobic despite the fact that bisexuals, some gay men and lesbians, and straight people do date and have relationships with Transmen and Transwomen, and just because someone is bisexual, gay/lesbian, or hetero it does not mean that they’re bigoted or transphobic.  I also remember how ENDA (Employment Non-Discrimination Act) was very, very close to passing and Trans activists flipped out and made sure it would not pass at all despite the decades of hard work that bisexuals, lesbians, and gay men had in trying to get it passed and get equality for everyone, and eventually they would have added gender/Transgender  protection as a law to protect TS/TG people in the workplace.

My peak trans moment came about a year after I joined tumblr. I realized that on tumblr, it was not permitted to talk about your experiences as a biological female. You were not allowed to state that menstruation, the vulva, a clitoris, and childbirth are associated with biological females only. And then my identity as a lesbian was erased and criticized starting with the whole cotton ceiling circus. Biological females are different than males. You cannot buy femaleness no matter how much surgery or fake hormones you get. Trans women have not been socialized as female and they do not know the biological reality of being female. Trans women will never be female. I used to support the trans community but it scares me now. I feel like someone is waiting to attack me all the time and tell me I’m transphobic because I’m a lesbian who wants a real female as a partner. Coincidentally, trans men have never exhibited this violent and entitled behavior from my experience. The reason is that trans men were socialized as female. You can’t escape biology or socialization. I am a woman and I am a lesbian. Trans women will never understand what it means to be either of those things. I wish they would quite appropriating the identity of biological females.

My peak trans moment was the cotton ceiling shit storm. Not even just that anyone thought this was a legitimate “barrier”, but the violent reactions towards all of us who were even mildly critical. At that point it was obvious everything radfems had been saying about transgenderism and what it breeds, especially in the males who think they’re women, was right.
