This might be a peak trans moment
From here on in, I’m referring to womyn who were CAMAB as simply womyn, and those who were CAFAB and ‘identify’ as female as ciswomen. I do this in the interests of cultural feminism, and so that ciswomen can know what it’s like for a tenth of a second to have a womon say, “you are not my sister….
Things like this insanity. For what it’s worth, I get along fine with FTMs for the most part - it’s just that the mix of male privilege and female hormones with MTFs… Wow Please make this submission anonymous
I have discovered that people feel ‘triggered’ by the ‘cissexism’ in the term FGM, and feel it should be changed to CAFABGM. They’re more concerned with ‘cissexism’ and possible jendah identities of girl children than the mutilation of their genitals. People can look at an international human rights issue and only see jendah. Peak Trans, round 2.
My peak trans moment occurred when I realized that frothy transjacktivists had appropriated the language of FAAB rape survivors (“trigger warning”) and diluted it from PTSD to “brief sadfeels.” And then they transplain (especially to lesbians), saying “you can’t be triggered by a body/ genitals!” Incredibly rude and violative. I refuse to pander to loons and their triggrrrz about menstruation when they clearly don’t respect the trauma endured by those of us who were raped by men.
My PeakTrans moment came when I realised that BOTH groups (MtF and FtM) want access to womens spaces and this causes them to simultaneously say THE EXACT OPPOSITE about Trans in this way:
MtF: growing up as woman means nothing, I am now a woman and have never felt like a man. Your womaness is meaningless. I am just like a ciswoman. You’re transphobic if you disagree now let me into your womens spaces.
FtM: of course growing up as a female means I can still relate as a woman! I’m now a man but I used to be a woman which means something, I’m not like a cisman in this respect now let me in to your womens spaces.
They expect non-trans to engage in some kind of weird Orwellian doublethink where being Trans means the exact opposite to each other!
It is clear they will lie to get whatever they want to feel special. I just cannot and do not believe them anymore……. One of the two groups is clearly lying!!!!
I support real trans* people, but not these tumblr-trans people. My peak trans moment was one minute ago, when I saw a trans woman (autumn-and-eve) criticizing a radical feminist’s appearance, going so far as to say she didn’t ‘pass’. The sheer misogyny in that post…ugh.
I can’t stand the way they misgender people (especially women) who disagree with them.
please post anonymously
in a feminist group speaking about women’s issues. I had no problem with transwomen being there. when I mentioned, however, that we as first world feminists should not force agendas or priorities on women in the global south, who had bigger fish to fry, I was suddenly accused of making transwomen feel “unsafe” and “afraid” of coming to the group. I was banned from the group. I tried standing up for myself and explaining my views. shouted down, there was a demand I make a public apology. I did. didn’t help. accused of being insincere, lying, sarcastic, whatever. then came the stalking, the angry messages at all hours of the night. I was called a bigot, a misogynist, a bad person, stupid, cursed at, hateful, etc. I was shocked. they tracked down my address, said they were going to jump me. I was scared. after further thought, I was amused. who were these freaks? discussion at the feminist group turned to adult baby fetishes, hormones, incest. females drifted away. the group itself was ruined.
i peak trans’d when a trans woman was whining to me that people sometimes said shit to her or verbally harassed her when she went out in dresses or heels or some shit, when i get harassed, and often followed home, no matter what i wear, and no matter how hard i might try to “pass” as a man.
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.
I feel a bit lost, because I am starting to fear transwomen entering women’s spaces under false pretenses and being a threat to women in general. I still want to support a lot of them, but there are so many bad apples and I feel like the trans* community does nothing to distinguish itself of these people.
The trans community lost me as a supporter when I simply requested that women discussions NOT be interrupted with disclaimers and ‘trigger warnings’ and then I started being attacked by them. Ironically enough, the same ones who attacked me AGREED that groups NEED their own discussions without being derailed, but when I included women in that, suddenly it was a ‘problem’. So I guess that I as a WoC can’t even have a say in a discussion about WOMEN. Typical silencing BS. NO ONE will tell me not to talk about MY body and thne expect me to accept ‘trans’ individuals as ‘real’ women.
