Fox News - Black Lives Matter calls for month-long boycott of ‘white companies’ by Tiwaking in news

Again, I was not speaking of all Jews. There are a few that are pro-white. I am not speaking of the vast and large number nor the Kazharians. For instance, there is the Jewish lady on this platform who spoke out against the anti-white bias of the press and who is also pro-life. And Rabbi Daniel Lapan and his wife clearly believe in things that Whites support.

Saying that there are a few pro-white Jews who are overshadowed by the bad actors has nothing to do with what pro-White Whites do.

And while what you say is true of Israel now, there are also Whites and Jews who believe that every group should have its own place.

As for the 6 million, we really don't know that is true. Even 600K would be a lot of deaths. Just work out the math and logistics of killing that many people, and let's assume around the clock and during the whole time of WWII. Plus the 6 million figure was larger than the number of Jews living worldwide (many of whom were only Jewish through religion or self-identification, and not via bloodlines). And there are current attempts to take out white people, displace them from their jobs, breed them out of existence, etc. Look at all the "Muslim" refugees in Europe now who are there to either rape white women or convert Whites to Islam, with the press turning the other way. Or the systematic killing of Whites in South Africa that the media denies and turns a blind eye to.

I imagine that's a myth since if there were no Jewish companies, they would use white companies. We are all the same, right?

And I support pro-white Jews and those who believe whites should have their own nations with just them, just like Israel is for Jews, Asia is for Asians, Africa is for Blacks, etc.

Huh? Not a TERF for sure, and not a part of the LGBT. You'll probably call me TRUSCUM next. Genuine transsexuals are NOT a part of the LBGT and don't want to be. If anything, the subversive transgender community was created to marginalize them and destroy their values since genuine TS values align closer to those of the mainstream. They'd love to see recreational and otherwise non-therapeutic transgenderism banned since that crowd cost them rights.

And while women don't usually kill transwomen, they usually get their worthless simp BFs to do it.

As for TGs, they are more likely to harm MtF TSs and other women. Like the one MtF TG who raped and killed a child and he was wondering why female inmates didn't accept him. Really, the government should just put down such predators. So yeah, reeducation camps.

I think you may misunderstand. Nobody said that gender dysphoria makes someone a different person. They transition to be more of what they already were all along.

The whole point for true transsexuals is to be comfortable in their own skin and to get others to treat them according to how they should have been born and raised all along. As for non-op transgender, yeah, I certainly cannot disagree with you. Transsexuals had acceptance to the point they worked to earn it, and then non-op transgender cultists came along and messed it up for them.

Parents doing this to their trans daughters is abuse, IMHO. I don't particularly support the trans community, but every person has the right to be who they want to be. And to pretend who someone really is doesn't exist, that is truly undignified.

In cases such as this, and no ill will to the parents in this particular case, it is often the parents who were responsible for such a death due to such treatment.

I have no dog in the trans thing and never said I was TG or TS. I make no demands other than to NOT be included in their community.

I used cis correctly. MtF Transsexuals are a subset of cisgender women, and "MtF" transgender is simply a type of men. TS women don't want to be housed with TGs anymore than other women, and should not be forced to do so. A TS's rights come from the vagina and XX chromosomes they were supposed to be born with. MtF TGs were supposed to have their penises and live as the MEN that they are.

It is not dismissive to refer to the MtF transgender men in dresses as what they are, men in dresses and those living fetishes. MtF TSs ARE women, "MtF" transgenders are men. Transsexuals would have more rights overnight if every non-op transgender were rounded up and imprisoned.

And no, I never used actually getting the surgery as a basis, but an inherently feminine nature and the DESIRE to get the surgery based on how the brain is wired before birth. Whether they actually get surgery or not (aging and poverty are factors). I can walk into any room and tell TSs from TGs without any effort. Folks should only be allowed to transition if there is a true need there, and not simply a dress-up game, fetish, or ANY sexual motivation. A paraphilic need is not a gender identity. Desiring to dress up to appropriate women and lord over them is not a gender identity. There are only 2 valid gender identities.

Anyway, please enjoy your day. I believe we have talked this to the end.

Yes. Some mothers do hang onto the placenta for health benefits. They might dry it out and consume bits of it at a time to help with post-pregnancy symptoms.

And the rhetorical questions I asked, yes, your response seems reasonable. If all is ideal, that sort of affection would be kept private regardless of orientation.

And what you have found just indicates that I need to do more research as well. That's the problem with science, the more you think you know, the more you realize that you don't know. Even Einstein allegedly said something similar. "The secret to my genius is knowing what I'm retarded at," or something.

My screen name comes from my desire to write or at least imagine about aliens. So literal spots, though I'm not redheaded nor a spotted extraterrestrial. I've used "Purple Lady" and similar in the past. That evolved into a fictional narrative over time starting from there. Why would a lady be purple? Maybe she's an alien. If she's a space alien, maybe she has a homeland on some other planet. And if there's a place with other purple people, maybe they have enemies. Maybe the enemies are Green. Not sure if Green Guys have bigger replication tentacles or not or if that's just a myth. :-) And I've tried to think out how I could write an ET story that is somewhat like US history. Use allegories to try to discuss topics that cancel culture has forced folks to not discuss. The Right could use a person such as Rod Serling to counter what's been promoted for so long. But since the Left has so much traction, fiction would be a safer place to start. If kids can read about "Heather's Two Mommies" and "Daddy's Roommate," why not read about issues that more likely will affect them such as losing freedoms and the majority letting a minority collective bully them into losing rights, losing jobs, and being unlikely to achieve the American Dream that so many hear about, but which is more elusive than the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy? And in drama or movie form, such a show could move past Black/White identity issues and Political Correctness. If you have believable Purple, Green, and Spotted characters, nobody should be able to tell or care whether the actors are Black, White, Asian, or actually Green, Purple, Blue, etc.

Where did I say I have a problem with that specifically? I was saying that the problem (not mine, but one that inherently exists) is that in the past, transsexuals were seen mostly on par with cisgender. But since that community and the media has done nothing but lie and claim that TSs and TG are the same, as soon as such shelters open up, transsexual women will lose their right to stay in women's shelters, even those who previously were allowed to with no problems, all because of guys who want to play dress-up. So the TSs would be forced to stay with the guys in drag who love their penises, the sense of male power they give, and who actively use them. So TSs would be robbed of what is ideal for them and given something bastardized back. "Sorry our lost your right to be accepted and treated as a 'real woman,' but don't feel bad, you can still have rights in society as a male pervert who lives as a woman for reasons of insanity or perversion and be housed with them."

Those are the same issues that I'd have with any 3rd-sex designation. TSs who have worked hard to conform, pass, blend in, and share the values of greater society will always lose with such a proposition. Anything that sounds good in this is nearly always a Damocles sword. When TGs gain rights (not earn them, but bully society into begrudgingly giving them out of fear), transsexual folks will nearly always lose because it will cause society to see them as more "other" than less and force a new kind of segregation. I've figured that with the restroom laws in a few US states, making a federal law to require that places have 3 restrooms would be good. But, then I thought through the harm that would cause. TS women who currently use the ladies' room without consequence will likely face being outed, bullied into using the trans restroom, and perhaps face violence if they don't. Shoot, this is already bad enough where folks (the ones screaming that their lives matter) have been reported attacking TS women at places like McDonald's and other ghetto-seeming fast-food places for using the restroom that most closely matches who they are.

Women born wrongly in male bodies (transsexuals) DO have a biological need to live as the gender that matches the biology of their brain, just like natal female women. Male-born transgender folks who merely live as women for sexual, fetish, delusional or egotistical reasons don't. Transsexualism is inborn, transgender isn't. A transsexual woman's rights come inherently from the vagina and XX chromosomes that she was supposed to have been born with all along. And what "MtF" TGs think are "rights" comes from their male privilege, bullying, and intimidation. When you live a lie, the only way you can defend it is by instilling fear in others. Truth, on the other hand, needs no emotional defense.

And yeah, we should give food, clothing, and shelter to folks more likely to be sexual predators. Get them on their feet so they can harm women (TS or otherwise). /s Though yes, Jesus did say to love thy enemies, and other religious figures of other faiths have said similar. And even in war, more primitive cultures had the decency to have a ceasefire at night. That gave opponents time to eat, gather their dead, and sleep.

Actually, for your first point, I see no real need for intervention to stop it beyond maybe some prenatal prevention. I think that is more due to chemical exposure in the womb due to the use of certain drugs. I suspect DES, and that was banned in 1970, with probably some use extending past that. I also wonder if drugs like finasteride could cause some mishaps such as intersex. So that could be why there may have been an uptick in CAIS cases. I don't know what taking Tamoxifen while pregnant could cause. And I don't know what increased cortisol levels during pregnancy could cause (whether from stress or cortico-adrenal steroids). Those represent 4 possible effects on sex hormones. Increasing estrogen (synthetic estrogen), decreasing estrogen (Tamoxifen), increasing androgens (steroids) or blocking androgens (Finasteride/Dutasteride).

Speaking of biochemistry, I wondered for a long time how estrogen can increase during pregnancy with no ill effects, but taking estrogens could result in miscarriage or harm to the fetus. Well, there are many estrogen-class hormones. So what is available to take as a drug includes horse-derived estrogen (such as in Premarin -- and is stronger than estradiol), estradiol (strongest human estrogen), estrone (estrogen created in the human bloodstream that can convert to estradiol or estriol), and rarely estriol (one of the weaker human estrogens). During pregnancy, the placenta creates large amounts of estriol. That would prevent hot flashes and may cause some breast changes to help prepare for lactation, but would likely not affect a fetus.

Something that shocked me to learn is that the ovaries don't actually produce estrogen as we may have learned in primary school. It seems that what they produce are the precursors such as DHEA and the aromatase enzyme. So estrogen is actually assembled in the blood. That approach prevents the "first pass problem" which I might as well explain.

I've also wondered why those taking oral estrogen supplements might be more likely to have strokes, pulmonary embolism, heart attacks, or liver problems, while women in their childbearing years face these conditions less. Now, there are estrogen receptors in the liver on the portal side (yes, male and female) that increase the stickiness of the blood. So women not taking estrogen and maybe those using estrogen patches or injections would be bypassing those receptors. That begs the question as to why most mammals have them. Non-human female mammals eat the placenta after giving birth. There are several reasons for this. They are likely physically drained and hungry after giving birth, so this helps protein levels. Plus, some mammals such as dogs will eat anything in the vicinity of their young that gives off an odor. That way, they're less likely to attract predators that may eat their young. That's also partly why dogs eat feces. (Some may also have eating disorders such as pica, they acquired a taste for it, or it could be because their sense of smell is so strong with very good discrimination/filtering that they can detect whatever that whoever had eaten previously.) Now, the health benefit of eating afterbirth would be that it could help stop hemorrhaging. Other mammals may not always have access to a doctor, paramedic, or midwife, so survival could be a challenge. So nature provided a way to get temporary relief of excessive bleeding from childbirth. They eat the placenta and the liver produces more clotting factors. That mechanism is not intended to be used regularly. It's more for emergency use. So those who take oral estrogen would need to avoid smoking, preferably avoid alcohol (while it could reduce clots, it could also harm the liver), and monitor their blood pressure. Low-dose aspirin is an option, but that carries its own risks.

Plus (back on topic), genetically speaking, transsexuals would be "suicide cases." Anyone who has their gonads removed will not be adding to the gene pool. Many transgender and gender-fluid folks keep their gonads. So they could pass on their genes.

I also see that much smaller crowd as less subversive. What would you rather a child see? What looks like a man and what looks like a woman kissing? Or what looks like two men or two women kissing? Or even what looks like a crossdressed man and another man kissing? (I imagine that is the order that things would extend down the "public level of disgust pyramid" if such a chart existed.) "Classic transsexuals" tend to want to conform to the gender binary and are not creating new genders.

Reddit is a hellscape. by Seraphim in Introductions

I see no problem with echo chambers in themselves as long as everyone can make them. The problem is when the same mods ban in their soapbox subs and then apply that to their non-partisan subs or preemptively ban based on them not agreeing with them elsewhere.

It would be nice if they had a limit of subs per moderator. Like maybe no more than 100-200 where they are the top mod and maybe that many or a bit more for subs they are a lower-ranking mod, with maybe 500 total. I mean, it doesn't need to be as strict as here, but some sort of limit would be helpful.

If they instituted the debate pyramid, it would eliminate the need for minority-driven policies and assure better fairness. It shouldn't matter if I call someone contard, libtard, freak, the N-word, the F-bomb, sexist slurs, disability slurs, idiot, dumbass, or whatever. That would be name-calling and constitute lowering the debate pyramid as name-calling and slurs. And if I say we should "kill all [insert group]," that would be advocating violence and would not be allowed.

The founding fathers had the wisdom of giving a few strong rights to everyone instead of enumerating rights to each and every group per situation. I feel they should have added more caveats for certain situations. Like the First Amendment should have said that religious speech is allowed in all government contexts (regardless of religion, unless it involves heinous crimes, rape, or human sacrifice, though if your religion requires drug sacraments that hinders your job, that is a different matter and should be prohibited while in public) and that you should be allowed to express your religious beliefs in public while also representing the government, and that having a government or public role doesn't negate those. I mean mentioning Christ in class should be seen either as a subject (like comparative religion) or as an inherently private opinion and not an endorsement by the state. And I feel the 14th Amendment should have had a narrower scope with a sunset clause so it would only be in effect for 1-2 generations and then automatically repeal itself. It should only be applied to slavery, not to immigration, abortion, transgender, etc. And even the 5th Amendment, while I support due process, what about cases where there are exigent circumstances where you must extract information to save one or more lives? Many may differ on the above I'd rather not debate that. I just wish things would have been clearer or narrower in scope in some places.

But my point above is that Reddit should have a few rules for everyone and not special rules for special groups, and not treat hatred of one group as different from hatred toward another. If the n-bomb gets a permanent suspension, then so should "racist," "bigot," "homophobe," libtard, contard, ret-rd, fundie, boomer, troll, asshole, dumbfuck, Nazi, Commie, etc. Name-calling is name-calling and hate is hate. There shouldn't be "protected hatred" or "protected resentments."

Fair questions. It is hard to measure in a quantitative sense. It is more like what the Supreme Court justice said about pornography. "I can't tell you what pornography is, but I know what it is when I see it."

There is no genetic test for this since it has more to do with how the brain has formed while in the womb. It is something you'd have to observe in a child that is young and see their patterns over a lifetime. Watch how they manage conflict, what types of play they prefer, whether they are more into skill-based games or relationship-based games, see if they make better nurturers or providers, and natural mannerisms and affect, etc.

As for TGs, generally, that would emerge more in adolescence when sexuality emerges (reemerges if you buy into Freud). Transsexualism tends to emerge more during or before the "latency" stage of childhood development.

We have to distinguish between innate stuff and more cultural stuff. TS and TG have differing philosophies here. TSs know that their nature and "core" is the "other" already. So they'd want to fix the body to match who they already are, and tend to let the cultural side fall into place naturally. TGs don't always see their identity as being at odds with their bodies and might never change that ("I can still be a woman with a penis since man and woman are arbitrary social constructs"), and they put their focus on presentation only. The activism styles and needs are different. TSs need full conformity to the other sex and see any issues in being accepted as more their own personal fault or that of their body. TGs tend to operate more as a community to themselves, don't really care about conforming ("just be yourself"), and see issues in being accepted as being society's fault. One tries to change themselves and the other tries to change everyone else.

And the above is just a rule of thumb. It's more a collection of profiles, and they must be taken with a grain of salt. The issue I see a lot in some is what I call the "potato problem." Everyone knows what an ideal potato looks like, and everyone knows what a completely rotten potato looks like. But it is harder to judge what is between. How many green spots are acceptable? What is an excessive number of "eyes?" Are tool marks allowed (like gouges from a shovel or pitchfork)? What about mild "blisters," bruises, or scrapes? So it is more of a subjective, intuitive art form than an exact science. I can usually tell the 2 apart, and others have said the same to me. I've run into transsexual folks (even those who reverted for whatever reason) who I could just feel the "girliness" oozing off of them, and I've had to refrain from wanting to stroke their hair. And then there were some that I could just read them right away, and while some of that pertains to their skill, I also notice the pattern of their voices (regardless of pitch), their demeanor, how they negotiate space (eg., "manspreading"), the topics they discuss ("I just got a new car," vs., "How is Emily, I haven't seen her, is she okay?"), the energy they give off (like defensive, belligerent, angry, territorial, detached), etc.

This is more intellectual for now. I am about discussing and learning for learning's sake.

Transsexual women were born with a feminine neurology, nature, etc. It is self-evident from early in life (unless it is beaten out of them). It is inborn and used to be the result of mothers taking DES or other things during pregnancy. It is not the same as the political or sexually-motivated choice to become transgender and get attention or be used as an excuse to practice unsavory things.

In short, I consider transsexual women to be women and transgender "women" to be men (except for the transsexuals who were propagandized to think transgender is just the modern name for it). So transsexual women should not have to put up with men in dresses being housed with them any more than other women. Since MtF TS women have the same natures and needs as other women, and MtF TGs have needs that are closer to those of men, TS women will face just as much abuse from TGs as natal women.

I never said I had a problem with transgender folks having their own community. The problem is that it would discriminate against and out fully-transitioned transsexual women who have fully assimilated to where nobody can tell (the correct end goal for transsexualism). They would be forced to give up what they already have now in society to placate men in dresses who enjoy keeping and using intact male genitalia. Once TG shelters are set up, that will dehumanize transsexual women who are fully accepted as women and have worked hard to earn the SAME treatment as women without distinction. Each time TGs make advances, it is nearly always at the expense of TSs. TS women are women, but society is seeing that less and less because of recreational and fetish-driven TGs and the press and LGBTs ripping TSs out of the cisgendder place they've worked hard to earn and placing them in a ghetto with men in drag who would rape them if they had a chance. Once TG centers open, TSs WILL be forced to go there.

I've heard of this happening even in "accepting and affirming" churches in the US. Here was a transsexual woman who was attending a church and accepted as fully female (end goal for TSism). Then an LGBT ministry started in that same church. Then someone started a lie calling her transgender and no one treated her the same since then and she lost all respect from others in the mainstream community (the only one she cared about) overnight. She was told that she couldn't speak to the main pastor anymore and had to speak to the LGBT pastor. So she couldn't go to that church anymore without being outed since she was forced to demean herself by being with those with absolutely nothing in common with her and denied access to those with the same type of brain, nature, needs, etc., as she had.

How do you think an arbitrary woman would feel if she were told she was not like other women and had to be housed with men in drag who are statistically more likely to rape her? That is almost like taking a monkey and painting them green. The other monkeys who previously befriended them will see them as "other" and likely gang up on them and kill them. Bees react similarly if the queen were to die and a new queen were to try to replace them. That is why when beekeepers must change the queen, that they put her in a protective "cage" until the hive accepts the fact that she is there. Even rodents will kill rodents of other species. Rats will eat mice.

Transsexuals have the biological need to live as the gender they should have been all along. It is optional for anyone else. And they have the need to not be outed or have their condition known. That is just as private (HIPAA-level) as getting an abortion, medical records, having an STD, etc., and is nobody's business beyond those in an intimate physical relationship with them or a therapeutic or legal relationship. Transsexuals are the most healthy when nobody knows that they have that condition. And the transgender movement has not done anything beneficial for transsexuals, only harmed them.

And we should likely let my involvement in this topic die a natural death. I had fun chatting with you.

I never said they were. There is a huge difference from those who innocently know from age 4 that they were trapped in the wrong body, and those who lie about knowing from this early on.

My point is since TS women have personalities, natures, etc., of other women, they are harmed just as much by male-born transgenders who lie to the world every time they dress up and appropriate women of all sorts (cis and MtF TS).

I knew a preop, non-transitioned TS woman who was living in male mode and allowed the wife to batter them for so long. Had they had a male nature, they would have never put up with that, despite what they were born with. So a male-to-female who hadn't come out was battered, bullied, and gaslighted by a female partner. If they had a male nature, they likely would have been the batterer or at least left much sooner. Many women may hate men, but what they hate more than that is a "weak" man.

Anyway, I think we talked this to the end. Thank you for chatting with me. Enjoy your Thanksgiving.

I used to host/moderate online spaces for the lesser-common transsexuals, and male-born non-op transgender folks would constantly invade, try to promote gay propaganda, etc. I eventually grew tired of that. I tried different schemes such as a layered approach. Have a vetting group and then the real group. Some felt misled/tricked by that. And when I thought I had a good core group, I learned things about them that I didn't like.

One pattern I noticed was that for the fetish crowd I kept trying to keep out, they usually had more than one fetish. So it was no surprise to see transfolk also attempt to transition their race or have apotemnophilia (disability fetish). There are trans folks and trans-ethnic folks who may seem reasonable. That is their identity. But then there are those for whom sex is their identity and these valid communities were there for them to exploit and use as a means to seeking "more and better sex." And that strategy rarely works ("porn creep"), since things must become more and more extreme and old arousal methods stop working. It is like the one "rule" -- "If it exists, there is porn of it."

GC: Women can have penises and men can have vaginas? by Fastandthecurious in GenderCriticalGuys

No mental malfunction at all. It is possible to be born with a female brain and a male body. Anyone who says otherwise is either ignorant or not telling the truth.

Transsexualism is a variation that occurs in the womb. True transsexuals are more likely to be Conservative and all since they see their body as the problem and seek to fix it and conform. And they are quite rare overall, since many who claim to be that are mere garden-variety transgender instead, and they have been known to lie, either to validate themselves or as part of a political ploy, much like crisis actors. It was simpler to sort out in the '80s since one was only transsexual (needing to go all the way with surgery) or a crossdresser/transvestite. At least the crossdressers knew they were men, but they made it harder on transsexuals. But then there were the less than savory folks in-between who were like, "Not only am I am woman, I am a woman with a penis that I will keep and use as a man would forever." Then by 2000, this group hijacked the entire thing.

So transsexualism is more organic while transgender follows the pattern you mention. And oftentimes, things were never "just fine." They just lied, hid, and covered it. As for why authentic transsexualism is rare these days may relate to the cause. Before 1970, there was a drug called DES that was given to pregnant women. It is a long-lasting synthetic estrogen chemical. We've all heard about DES causing breast cancer in daughters and granddaughters of women who took it. That is just the tip of the iceberg. It also caused penile deformities in men and possibly transsexualism, as the brain becomes more feminized in the womb.

Transgender isn't usually organic in nature. As with homosexuality, I see it as possibly having many etiologies that differ. For instance, most "gay genes" tend to be only partial explanations. One promising lead to scientists turned out to be something else entirely. They realized it was not a gay gene when all gay folks in their sample didn't have it, and some of the heterosexual control subjects did. So much for that, though someone might try to argue that some folks think they are gay when they are not and that some "heterosexual" folks are lying. But in this case, researchers found something interesting that all with the gene did share. They seemed to be more likely to dye their hair, get tattoos, or take on an IDGAF attitude. So while that was not a gay gene, it did make it easier to be gay and survive well into adulthood. Since if you don't care what others think, you'd be less likely to become suicidally depressed. And of course, there is rape trauma during early development, and the trauma of parents divorcing, and sometimes just being different and desperately looking for an explanation, and everyone tells you that you must be gay. Then one proceeds in that direction and becomes addicted to the associated behaviors. They were just looking for a place to belong that understood them, and others took advantage of that.

Transsexual women have needs closer to regular women, transgenders, not so much. That is why transsexual folks take great pains to try to hide their condition, to give others the luxury of not knowing and being treated the same. Most who call themselves transgender never get the surgery and are all "out and proud."

I don't see any of what I said as irrelevant though. We shouldn't let the men who claim to be transgender do the same things to MtF transsexual women that they do other women. A person who fully conforms to (or at least is fully committed to trying) a natal female in personality, needs, thought strategies, etc., and feels their body is an error, they are not the same as men in drag lying and pretending to be women for sexually-motivated, delusional, trivial, or criminal reasons.

If we don't want what some may consider "live penis monsters" in with natal women, and that is a noble goal, then I don't see why we should subject TS women who attempt to fit into mainstream living, who are not activists, who don't necessarily support LGBT in with that crap either.

And don't bother trying to research differences on these, since many use them interchangeably, and there seems to be a campaign to destroy TS influences in favor of TG ones.

Happy Thanksgiving to you too!

Well, most in their right mind realize that gender identity exists and is distinct from sex. There are genuine transsexuals who truly felt trapped in the wrong body all their life before transition. They are not the same as the mentally ill men in drag who dress up as women while keeping and using a fully functioning penis. They are the reason why actual transsexuals have lost rights that they've had in America since the '50s.

Really, I think transgenders were created to erase transsexuals and their influences, since genuine transsexuals are more likely to be hyper-religious, conservative, and even homophobic or White nationalists.

Thanks. That's not quite what I said.

Gender identity is not a mental illness. It just matches the sex in cis individuals. And gender role is not inherently an illness, since any person will naturally follow the gender role that matches their gender identity when given an opportunity. So it is not an illness to dress as a woman if your body and inner being say you are a woman. And orientation itself is not an illness, only when you have the wrong one for who you were meant to be.

AHS begins eating its own, blasts a trans sub as 'transphobic' by exentrico in AgainstHateSubreddits

[–]Spotted_Lady 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

That is the thing. Transsexuals and transgender are not the same, no matter how much liars in the media and the LGBT community (that true transsexuals are not a part of) want to tell you. So anyone who says a person born feeling the other from age 4 and who wants complete transition with HRT and surgery is not the same as crossdressers, gender variant, "women" with penises (that they are proud of), non-binary, etc., are seen as being hateful.

Genuine transsexuals tend to be more likely to be right-wing, hyper-religious, homophobic, or even white nationalist than transgenders. It seems that those in power saw this and created transgenders to dilute the influence of actual transsexuals.

The only good thing I see some out of the transgender community is that a lot fewer non-transsexuals are getting the surgery. There is no overwhelming social advantage to do so now, leaving the surgery more to those who personally feel they must have it for internal reasons, not social advantage.

That doesn't seem like a good solution overall. The term "actual women" could be seen as bigoted by some.

Plus it doesn't account for the differences between transsexuals and transgender. Transsexuals (postops, and preops who want to be postops) tend to feel they are already the other gender completely and just want to make their lifestyle and body match. So they support the gender binary, and some are even homophobic, right-wing, fundamentalist Christians, etc.

Transgender is more of a political label and social construct that applies to ANYTHING that could be perceived as gender variance, and transsexuals as a whole did not ask to be included. So transgender would include crossdressers, drag queens, non-ops, neo-genderists, non-binary, and those who say "I'm a woman with a penis -- why should I cut it off, you can be a woman with a penis!"

So can you imagine the harm that would happen to actual transsexuals who have known all their life, and either have surgery or will never feel complete until after surgery if they were lumped in with sexually-active men who choose to wear dresses for no real good reason? It will end up the same as what lesbians gripe about with the coercive sex by "women with penises" who want to dismantle their lives or get them canceled for not agreeing to have sex with them.

The sad thing the above tells you is that there is really no fair way to do this. If we make legal and social distinctions between transsexuals who want to transition completely (which includes eventual surgery), who fully identify as the other sex (and not non-binary, "gender variant," etc.) and the rest, which is not PC either, then some of the "rest" will lie to get in. Back to discussing India, they already have a problem with con artists and rapists pretending to be Hijrah, and the majority of those don't even go through the Hijrah ceremony (ritual surgery).

The issue above is similar to other debates. I am pro-life, though, to be honest, I can support abortion if it is only used for reasons such as rape, incest, harm to the mother, or severe deformity of the fetus. But once you limit it to those things, others will lie and say they were raped just to get an abortion. Or like what transsexuals faced before the Transgender Explosion of 2000. The Johns Hopkins study concluded that surgery did not have significant benefits. Yeah, but most of the patients didn't have transsexualism. They were transgender and may benefit from dressing as the other sex, but they didn't have transsexualism. A number were just self-hating men who really didn't want to be women either, but felt society left them no choice.

Or consider the diagnosis criteria for transsexualism in the past. The criteria took social role into account, and that's why the standards varied. Just living as the other sex and expressing discomfort living as a man was enough to qualify males, but females not only had to do that but also express the wish to have a penis. That neglected the possibility of the mess we have now, but I can see the reasoning. There was so much anti-gay sentiment that someone would have to be really serious about thinking they were the other sex if they'd risk shame, humiliation, public ridicule, and violence. Women were also mistreated a lot, so doctors added stating a desire to have a penis to make sure women were not trying to be men to escape discrimination. That's like the "Catch-22" thing in the original usage, where you'd have to be insane to want to fight in Vietnam, so if you say you're crazy to avoid fighting a war, then that is actually a mark of sanity. So a woman trying to be a man to escape persecution shows that she likely doesn't have transsexualism. Society is sick, not her for seeking refuge. You can't perform surgery on one person to cure others.

I've said the same for a long time, but from a conservative angle. That a person can be a male woman or a female man.

I used to say regularly that there are 4 unrelated things at work here.

  • Sex -- Physical characteristics, chromosomes, reproductive role

  • Gender Identity -- Based on an innate difference separate from social influence where someone "just knows" what they are. And it may gravitate to having specific socially-defined interests but it is distinct from that. So someone born with a male body might have the social needs, interests, social strategies of girls because their brain physically differs from their body.

  • Gender Role/Presentation -- This is where stereotypes and society play a role. This gives context to the above. You could feel feminine and think/function as feminine without wearing lipstick, hose, dresses, etc. So this aspect steers the direction that one's gender identity takes. If women stretched their necks here, transwomen would do that too.

  • Sexual orientation -- This is only added for completion. It does not directly tie to the above, though the above give this context. A lot of people confuse gender role with sexual orientation. "If a man puts on lipstick, he's got to be gay, right?" While that might be conceivable, that wouldn't be the only possibility. Maybe he's an actor or a professional drag performer. Maybe he got kissed in the mouth by presumably a woman wearing lipstick. Maybe he picked up lipstick by mistake when trying to apply balm. There is nothing about wearing a dress that means that any person, male or female, has to be compelled to perform fellatio.

Sam Lux did a video saying "Trans-Racial" & "Trans-Korean" aren't legitimate. This transphobic garbage needs be reported out of existence by SnowAssMan in GenderCriticalGuys

The issue I see here is appropriation. Do people who change their racial identity seek permission from the community that they move into?

An issue she brings up is that many don't know the difference between gender identity and sex. So if that is true, and it may be distasteful to say, a person could be a male woman or a female man.

Are penis and clitoris the same things? Are penises large clitorises, and clitorises small penises? by AllInOne in GenderCriticalGuys

They are the same up until, I think, the 5th week of gestation. At that point, about 3 genes on the Y chromosome become active. That causes a rush of DHT, thus stunting the "Mullerian tubes" and causing the "Wolfian Tubes" to develop. Thus what would have been the clitoris and the urethra start to grow, along with all the other differences. What would have been the labia closes up, etc.

Agreed, since men lack a clitoris.

But not only is the penis analogous to a clitoris, but the urethra grows onto the bottom side of the penis.
