Will the gynecologist think back on that strange, hippyish Karen (me) she had in her office warning her about gender ideology years before? Too late, lady. I was making sense - you should have listened.

The gynecologist might have listened and even feel crap about not having much power to try to go against the system because she's just a gynecologist (though if this is her own privately owned practice, then it's fair to assume she supports TRA policies), not a legislator. She might not even care and wants to get on with her job. The reality is that not enough people care or they're trying to make sure they have enough money to pay off some bills.

If you want to make greater impact, trying starting a protest and spread information, print flyers with information and hand them out or put them on cars (similar to how vegans put stickers in places to protest against meat consumption), try to inspire people to be more open with their views and express them. Try building a physical community, and make them active, this is how past movements in democratic states made progress (and is how women, vegans, TIs created an impact in society), it might be seen as gender disciminating to the law, but still see if you can try to gain movement like that. I would love to do something similar except making myself famous will bring some unwanted consequences which I can't mitigate.

OP: She interacted.

I'd interact regardless if someone was talking at me. No one knows here how OP interacted with her. OP may not actually beaware and we will never know what her talk with the doctor is really like, we just got to take her word for it.

If anyone came at me to have this type of discussion while I'm at work, I would try to politely move away from the discussion if I'm uninterested without looking like I'm shutting then down to not offend them or just plain listen to curb my boredom. I might even pretend to be interested just to see what they say and do (something I did before to get me through the shift and another time when I was talking to a stranger outside of work because I was bored and curious to see how good I was at pretending to feign interest).

There's that too. I'd rather keep religious, political discussions outside of work when I was in customer service.

If she reached an important part of the session where errors are more likely made, she would really need to shut the OP down so she makes sure she does her job properly.

The doctor's office is not a place to discuss politics with the doctor. Just because the office had woke signs, it doesn't mean they are a place to discuss politics, or people even WANT to discuss politics. There's a difference between showing you're woke and being open for discussion on politics. A lot of places and people would rather avoid a political discussion and instead choose to look as accomodating as possible. The medical industry does rely on making people aside from saving lives to increase their profits.

She actually engaged with me often. For instance, when I mentioned "Lupron" she said, "Of course I know Lupron - what about it?"

Still political and ideological unrelated, it's one of the "safe" responses to make, what you say next and she does next can put her at some risk.

She may react to what you are saying, maybe put in a bit of input, she would have done so in a way where the patient can't claim anything against her (e.g. avoid saying that "trans people are deluded). The entire thing seems like she was just trying to listen to you, react like a human being and drop the discussion on politicians or she may at risk say something she might regret.

Here's the money quote from the article- literally. Gender ideology is an industry - spread that fact around, please.

"“Trans-tech is a budding industry with an enormous opportunity, RKA claims. “Our estimates place the average cost of transition at $150,000 per person. Multiply that by an estimated population of 1.4 million transgender people, we’re taking about a market in excess of $200B. That is significant. That’s larger than the entire film industry.”

She interacted. I got the sense that had we met in other circumstances, I could have Peak Transed her fairly easily, because she was thinking about each of my points and I could see her putting the pieces together.

I have noticed with other doctors I've been to that when I bring up the sudden rise of kids, particularly gay kids, claiming to be transgender, they've noticed too and are wondering where it all came from. Most doctors I've spoken to about this are actually really interested, maybe because they know the risks of giving a 12-year-old a chemical castration drug.

It's your body, just please keep that in mind, and it's your choice who touches it.

I read that the serial killer, Ted Bundy, said something along the lines of in his experience as a serial killer, women's politeness would be their downfall. As in, Bundy would pretend to be injured or need help in order to draw women into his traps, and women, trained to "be kind" from birth, would set aside their suspicions and do things they should have refused, like get into a strange man's car, and then he had them.

Good points, thanks.

The office had WOKE signs (in the US, a good % of people in certain neighborhoods have signs like "Hate has no home here, " etc), so I think that there were at least some political discussions allowed.

She actually engaged with me often. For instance, when I mentioned "Lupron" she said, "Of course I know Lupron - what about it?"

She also remembered the original intent of Title IX, which had NOTHING to do with "gender identity," and also was shocked when I gave her some of the statistics as to how many kids were claiming to be transgender, and the makeup of those kids (mostly gay, but also autistic, ADHD, etc.)

I would say she was interested until I said the words, "Biden administration."

I would show your mom pictures, especially of some of the TiMs who are in women's jails, and tell her their crimes.

And since your mom is a mother, so I'm assuming at least in her late 30s, ask her if it's fair that a woman who's been raped should have to expose her body to ANY man that wanders into the women's locker room.

You could ask her how does she reckon that sex offenders will be kept out of women's spaces given that the US Equality Act allows ANY man to self-ID as a woman and access them?

You could also bring up that children are often in women's sex-segregated spaces too - does your mother feel that it's OK to expose children to a stranger's male genitalia?

What about groups of men entering women's locker rooms - ask your mother if she would feel comfortable with a group of naked men when she herself was naked, because, under the Equality Act, a group of men can come into a women's locker room?

Ask her what if a child or young girl was in the locker room alone - is she comfortable with that young person being exposed to the male genitalia of a group of men?

I think the way forward is to tell our fellow citizens, IN GORY DETAIL, what will happen if the Equality Act, and similar legislation on the state and local level, passes. Most people either have no idea these laws are being proposed, or haven't thought them through, so let's tell them.

What "mahunkel" says only makes sense if you think that sex isn't the discriminant between men and women. So in his own absurd logic, his comment is right. Of course again, it only work if you believe in gender because then you can argue "well transmen have periods and feminism isn't for men therefore only transwomen have a true woman experience".


So essentially, anybody who thinks in terms of gender and not sex, thinks that issues around periods have nothing to do with feminism, if feminism is about women's struggles and not female's struggles.

So these people, essentially by changing the definition of "woman" succeeded in destroying feminism.


I find it fascinating, the simple act of hijacking language, changing the definition of words thus forcing everybody to adopt your point of view, can have such deep consequences when it comes to society. It's fascinating but it's says a lot of about how societies and moral paradigm work.

Slavery acceptance, racism, nazism, or the fact that females used to have no rights stem exactly from the same phenomenon. You just have to make people accept that a certain category of people are subhuman by defining who is human and who isn't, who has a soul and who hasn't, who is german and who isn't and so on and so forth.

He who controls language really controls thoughts. Unfortunately, feminists were not vigilant enough to push back against these ideas when they started to get pushed by people who wanted to hijack feminism for their own purpose.

I find it also very interesting how the LGB flag was recently hijacked to feature the trans flag and some brown/black colors, basically saying, "if you don't support that flag, you are racist". Even though the fight against anti-black racism isn't necessarily directly correlated to the LGB movement... or is it? Isn't it just the result of "intersectionality"? Something feminists themselves created? where all struggles are part of a greater struggle so they must be all tackled at the same time and if you don't acknowledge on of these struggles, it makes you a bigot?

All transgender activists had to do is paint themselves as victim worthy of the intersectional pyramid of victimhood. So either transgender activists are right or intersectionality is wrong, it cannot be both ways.


From a legal perspective it is absolutely a slippery slope as well, since once the "gender" logic is accepted then it will replace the legal definition of sex, that's inevitable.


If radfem want their point of view to be heard, they need first and foremost to acknowledge some ideological flaws in the movement that lead to that situation and essentially, reject intersectionality, at least in my opinion, to focus on women's struggle and only that. Yes, racism and sexism can intersect, homophobia and sexism can intersect, but then, where do you draw the line in terms of movement without being subject to entryism?

Men still make jokes in the workplace at times that a woman who is sharp towards them must be having "that time of the month" (notice that, even here, men are using a euphemism).

Little do they know that PMS affects women in different ways and accounts very little (or none) for her behaviour. You can respond to them "what's wrong, can't handle a bit of hurt feelings" or something like that, they think they can put the focus of their problems on you, put the focus of their problem at them by implying they're whingy little bitches.

It's males like those that hold those views are part of why I'm so cautious about dating (I haven't dated anyone before and haven't had sex with anyone) as someone who tends to experience the horny type of PMS (and goddamnit when I get it, it's distractingly strong). Try learning a new technical skillset required for your hobby without scratching any itches and within a specific time frame before life hits you and stops you from indulging in your hobby and cripples your skillset and you'll know what I mean!

Then, when I got to see the gynecologist, who was the best I've seen yet, I started my gender critical spiel.

I began with the new patient form I'd filled out, asking her whether she really considered biological sex changeable. She said the office had put the option of claiming transgender on the form to be considerate of transgenders. I attempted to explain why normalizing the idea that men could identify into womanhood was so dangerous for women.

Afterwards, I specifically talked about the dangers of girls being sucked into the transgender craze, thinking that she, as a gynecologist, has probably noticed.

She was obviously very intelligent, and listened for a bit, but the minute I mentioned that the Biden administration was behind the changes in law, she shut off, snapped that the office was "free of politics" and then continued with the examination as if I hadn't said anything at all.

I'm going to be honest with you, it's pretty reasonable for her to shut you down there. Her talking about politics can get her more in trouble as it's not related to medicine and it's purely political. She can explain why there're stupid changes to forms, and listen to you talk about the gender delusions, but the longer you talk, the more she has to listen and try to refrain from stating her opinion which can affect how she does her job (or if she can keep her job or not if it gets out that she has an unpopular opinion about any party). She may not even be in any position to afford a potential lost or attack by stating her opinion unlike other people (e.g. Toronto University's professor Jordan Peterson).

By the looks of your post, you're conversation with her seems largely one-sided with you talking and her just listening. She probably tried to refrain from stating her thoughts as that could put her in a "bias" frame and can cause some issues with the job. This issue is not unique to the medical industry, when you're working in customer service, you can't openly state your political, religious thoughts lest you are fine with losing your job.

From what I understand medical pratcitioners and medical companies are trying to take the path of least resistance because they want to get their job done, they're after money. It doesn't really indicate if your gynecologist is a GenderCritical, a TRA or support Biden.

Although if it's their personal private practice that they own and not part of a larger company, then I would suspect they are TRA while trying to look politically neutral (though they could easily have GenderCritical views, but care more about money than trying to actively counter the TRA delusion). If they're part of a larger company and are simply employed there by someone else, then you don't really know. Go for a practice which is privately owned and run by a medical practitioner who doesn't have those stupid things on their forms if you can, less likely those that don't follow popular social trends are more likely to not care or support TRA stuff. You don't actually know their beliefs unless they state their beliefs to you outside of the professional environment.

Do you find "people who menstruate" or "birthing people" dehumanizing? by Rage-Xion in GenderCritical

[–]MarkTwainiac 4 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 0 fun5 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I have a different view. I don't think these terms are meant to detach women from the lived experiences of our female bodies. I think they are meant to anchor & limit women to a few uniquely female & short-lived functions of some of our bodies.

Referring to us as "people who menstruate" reduces us to a process that only occurs during approximately 40 years of our lives, from age 11 to 51 on average. Moreover, this terminology suggests that during those 40 years, we menstruate 24/7/365. When, in fact, most of us menstruate for at most one week out of every four.

As for calling us "birthing people," for most women labor & childbirth takes up a day or two of every FT pregnancy. I'd have no problem saying that humans are breathing people because we breathe every second of our lives. But birthing is a very specific, time-limited endeavor that can only occur once a year at most, & which the vast majority of women experience only on occasion in our lives - and which many women never experience at all.

I feel your pain about lifelong liberal family members. I keep talking to my mom about the excesses, which I make sure to say excesses, of the trans rights movement. I can tell she's having thoughts that I may be falling into QAnon brainwash or some other internet cult. All because I don't want female humans to be any more at risk and disadvantaged in life than we already are and have always been.

It's such a lonely feeling. I'm desperately looking for someone to vent to about this. I haven't wavered on any other of my leftwing views, nor have I ever gone on rants about a political issue, and yet my family won't hear me out about any gender stuff.

I don't know what I'd do if I went in for an exam, asked for a female doctor, and then saw someone who very clearly wasn't born female come into the room. I already have a bit of trauma involving older men, but for women who don't, I feel like they'd still react with confusion? But I would also still be thinking "ah yes, a female doctor, who was born male, socialized as male, and probably went through male puberty. Just like me."/s

I would hope that this is something that wouldn't happen very often, but that doesn't matter. The IDEA that it could happen is scary. I'm moderately left-leaning but my family members are more conservative and at the very least I'm able to talk with them about how ridiculous some of these "equality" laws are. Can't talk about this stuff with most of my friends though, they would be appalled if I had issues with seeing a doctor who identified as female but was born male.

I swear that this gender ideology push is some kind of psy ops to turn the world even more chaotic than it is now.

Imagine in five years, when, as you said, the gynecologist is forced to give a pelvic exam to a faux-gina. And the receptionist has to repeatedly lie to elderly women that they are going to get a female doctor, but then said "woman" doctor has hands the size of basketballs and a beard.

Will the gynecologist think back on that strange, hippyish Karen (me) she had in her office warning her about gender ideology years before? Too late, lady. I was making sense - you should have listened.

Unfortunately this mess will only be curtailed once a good number of normies are affected. Once that receptionist can't proudly declare (honestly) that all practitioners are female and the gynos have to get educated about treating voluntary male surgical wounds, then we will finally see some real pushback. Sadly it may be a bit late in the game by then as far as reversing laws and such.

Wow - that's interesting about your family and friends.

I can totally relate - It is so incredibly frustrating that even someone who is liberal on just about every issue, like me, has to bend over backwards trying to convince people who've known me for decades that my opposition to gender ideology is not based on some kind of anti-LGB old school conservatism, but rather that opposition to gender ideology is the newest wave of feminism.

I kept pushing with the gynecologist because I could see that she was processing what I was saying. I mentioned the puberty blocker (or rather, the CHEMICAL CASTRATION DRUG) Lupron and how it was being given to this huge % of kids being swept up in the transgender fad and I could see her connecting the dots.

Here's the thing: I asked the receptionist for a female gynecologist and she proudly responded that they only had female practitioners (so physicians assistants, LPNs, etc) in the office so I didn't need to worry.

If the Equality Act passes, and this office has to hire a male, the receptionist won't be allowed to tell a patient requesting a female practitioner that she's going to get a male doctor, because, by law, the man is a woman.

So a patient will be undressed and waiting for her exam when in walks the "woman" doctor she requested, who she's been assured by the receptionist she's going to get, and it's a man.

It just frustrates me so much that, all over the world, the gender lobby has managed, by using LGB as sword and shield, to get people of goodwill to not think things through (or to be completely unaware - IRL NO ONE I know has heard of the US Equality Act) as to what the actual cost will be if we let men self-identify as women.

She can shut down the conversation all she wants, but she'll be on the front line having to deal with performing a pap on a male's surgical wound, among other things. Liberals don't want to hear that their blue donkey saviors do any wrong. I'm afro-latina and can only be critical of dems with some of my family and partner. My family is pro-gun and anti-trans laws like me, but also homophobic af and really conservative about gender roles and abortion (eye roll). My friends who are almost all american black will hear nothing criticizing dems, even if you bring up 3 strikes laws and racist roots of anti-gun laws. I hate politics. The divisiveness just allows more bullshit laws to be passed. I truly don't understand people's aversion to hearing things they don't agree with immediately.

It could be, I remember she said her parents gave birth to a boy so he can have a son, there's a noticeable age difference between both her and her brother. I would have begun suspecting a bit more that she might be trying to get her dad's assets (as a joke), but she started claiming a few years after she said that in a post. I'm not surprised if what really happened that aside from shitty parents, she has felt oppressed in her suburb (although very unlikely, she lives in an area where our ethnicity is more concentrated and they're in a higher income bracket), she feels the unfair treatment from one of the important figures who she has no choice but to accept in her life (children, do not have the autonomy to remove people from their lives), because said figure wants a son, she goes to Tumblr and see all of these other injustices (or has noticed already and thought to go to Tumblr because art and social justice is her passion) which furthers her development and passion in fighting oerceieved social justices and with the whole academic achievements, some level of elitist attitudes (if the social justice thing hasn't given her a sense if superiority yet). I really don't know anything about her, I'm just basing off human psychology and looking at her life and coming up with a theory of what may have happened. Also she probably had no one important enough to discuss these thoughts with, which led to unhampered beliefs developing into beliefs which less based off logic and more based off emotion. Compare to me, I wanted to go vegetarian, and I expressed that, but I was drawn back by my older brother (he's a narcissistic, selfish asshole, but I'm not going to lie, he had some beneficial impact), by telling me how homo sapiens evolved and teased me a little with the taste of meat, is hard to resist rustic chinese cooking.

I would do that just to muck around with a skirt because sometimes you can see the effects it gives if you whirl it. I think they generally find skirts fun and their excitement over it hasn't worn out and they think they can use this for TRA reasons. If they start skipping around with a basket in one arm and giggling for no reason, then I'm going to say they're trying to be like little girls and it's goddamn disturbing, because at that point, they are like Stefoknee.

Compare it to Ivy Valentine from the Soul Series (I saw some of your Youtube videos, so I know you know who I'm talking about), she's just blatant eye candy who happens to be a smart educated woman.

That's a very fair and accurate outlook. I like Ivy but in the sense that I like how in the story, she's this tragic character who's trying to free herself from her cursed blood. Her ending in SC3 always gets me. But that said, I know what she was intended for. I'm not the target demographic what with being a gay man so her design doesn't titulate me but I know that to the majority demographic, she was designed as nothing but shallow sex candy. Like they don't even give a reason why she dresses in BDSM attire whereas her alternate costumes usually have some sort of sense to them.

But I agree with you, comparing Bayonetta and Ivy, Bayonetta is not as shallow a design compared to the latter. Her design has purpose and character and despite the suggestive posing, it does feel like she is in control of herself and the whole "You can look but don't touch" is very true.

I always try to be very analytical when it comes to characters like this. It's why I said what I said about Ivy in my SC videos and mentioning what designs work and don't work for her (That Soul Calibur 4 outfit will always be one I despise lol) but with Bayonetta, I feel like she could be the embodiment of what a woman could feel like if she had unlimited power and facing the world with not a care in the world. Because Bayonetta may do some suggestive poses, it's because she knows she can and that if anyone were to mess with her, she can unleash her demonic power on them lol.

what a woman character designer would do (although more likely she would have a bit more of a grounded reality if what a woman would behave and dress like in her society in her character designs and development).

One thing that I always wanted to try asking is having women who are artists try and design what they would see as an awesome character design. I just can't think of many women in the gaming scene who are head directors who control what designs should be. I think kingdom Hearts has one? But I'm not sure. Either way, I'd like to see some women try their hand on this and then we could compare and contrast them against designs done by men.

Do you find "people who menstruate" or "birthing people" dehumanizing? by Rage-Xion in GenderCritical

[–]aloris342 5 insightful - 1 fun5 insightful - 0 fun6 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

There are several reasons I dislike these words. First, despite containing the word "people," these terms focus on body functions rather than the actual human person. Boys jeer at girls who are on their period. Men still make jokes in the workplace at times that a woman who is sharp towards them must be having "that time of the month" (notice that, even here, men are using a euphemism). Things like tampons were empowering because they allowed women to hide the fact that they were menstruating, which removed a tool that had been used to bully or humiliate women and therefore to gain social power over them. Calling women "people who menstruate" brings a physical vulnerability of women's bodies to the forefront of the conversation and to the forefront of the listener's mind, and therefore changes conversations to give us lower status. That is why it is dehumanizing.

Birthing people is problematic because it separates the physical (animal) (never forget that the idea is to position women as mere animals, in comparison to men who are the full and default humans) act of giving birth from the wholeness of the relationship between mother and child. Once I've given birth to my child, what am I then? No longer a birthing person, I suppose, but what? The fact that I gave birth to the child is unlinked from the fact that I am that child's mother. Terms like "birthing people" carefully slice up motherhood into functions that can be sold off or controlled from outside. And, as with "person who menstruates," it paints a particular picture in the mind (a partly naked woman, in pain, probably bloody, with her legs apart), and the goal of painting that picture is to disempower the woman in the social interaction of the person with whom she is talking.

Altogether, the big issue with redefining womanhood according to individual body functions, is that it attempts to separate each woman from the other. Little girls, adult human females, and postmenopausal women (even those without a uterus) have fundamental interests in common with each other. We have solidarity with each other (or, we should). But if we can't even speak about ourselves as a coherent class, then we can't organize or talk to each other about our common concerns.

I don't know if you made a typo but from what I've read it's just the opposite. Person-first language ("he has autism" rather than "he's autistic") is meant to highlight our shared humanity. No matter what hardship you face, you are a person first and foremost.

Importantly, this is in direct contrast with intersectionality and identity politics, which make strategic efforts to spotlight group membership based on victimhood. To say that the woke have fallen afoul of the ideals of the original civil rights movements is an understatement; they've completely reversed their tactics. We used to pursue equality; now we flaunt our oppression.

I don't like policing others' language, but it's interesting to think about the political and ideological motivations behind linguistic choices, whether good or bad.

When I hear phrases like that, to me it's dehumanizing in that it sounds like it's just reducing women to their reproductive organs. Isn't that what people argue against anyways? But also some women don't have periods or can't get pregnant so if we're going to call women "people who menstruate" are those women just not women then?

I saw an ad today for the pain reliever Midol and they just used the phrase "menstruators" which definitely felt dehumanizing.

"SOGI" being sexual orientation and gender identity. I absolutely cannot stand the way they are constantly intertwining the two so that if you criticize gender it seems like you are also against gay rights.

(Thank you for explaining the acronym.) Uh, not to worry, this mayn’t last long? For now, gay rights are being associated with gender identity (to the detriment of homosexuals). Soon, sexual orientation will mean something(s) quite different, like “sex” is becoming non-biological, and those “new” meanings for orientation will piggyback off acceptance of “gender identity”, and its place in law. Homosexuality, like women’s gains, will be something of the past, and memories of it erased from acceptable history.

New POS (point of sale) software containing photos and info on known” problem *nonpersons. If I’m not discouraged from wandering about in public by the urinary leash, or vaccine passports, this will be another tool in “their” arsenal to confine me. Whoopee.

Tyranny. The trap is about to snap shut.

Hijacking homosexuality as an "identity" by xxo1111 in GenderCritical

I notice none of them claim to be a trans heterosexual, it would make sense if they're homo and they start identifying as the opposite gender, they should be thinking they're hetero and not homo. It's all about how much they can claim to win the top snowflake awards.

I've seen a selective school student (selective highschools in Australia are schools that only allow students with strong academic ability to be enrolled, they're not the same as public schools and private schools) who went from calling herself a lesbian and dating her girlfriend for a few years, to then dating a guy and calling herself a gay boy and tagging her Tumblr feminine pictures of her in typical feminine styles as "gay boy". I wonder if her parent issues led to her being crazy, but considering how much she broadcasts her life, it looks more like Tumblr got to her and maybe some level of academic elitism and self-percieved superiority in understanding social issues (she went off at me for asking what "POC" means).

Do you find "people who menstruate" or "birthing people" dehumanizing? by Rage-Xion in GenderCritical

Well, the word woman used to be ours, but factions are working OT to completely remove it from us. Don’t “you” (notOP) consider it a possibility that the words people or person could be forbidden for us next? (Or weaponized against us?)

I never imagined this particular linguistic attack would occur in my lifetime. Campaigns/plans have outlined steps to achieve goals…

I wonder if her "son" started testosterone a year ago too? by scrantonstranglr in GenderCritical

So I just came across this post and at first, I felt bad for this mother who seems to have a violent teen son (who hits when husband isn't around which can be scary), however, when you scroll through the comments you discover that her child is AFAB. Ugh

the definition of dehumanizing is "depriving a person or group of positive human qualities."

The reason they use "people who bla bla" is specifically because they want to deprive women from positive things like menstruation and birthing. So it's very simple.

They do this because these qualities being related/applied to women don't allow for an easy reworking of what a woman is.
