How do "Transwomen" have Male Privilege? by Kai_Decadence in GenderCritical

[–]TeaAndCigarettes 14 insightful - 1 fun14 insightful - 0 fun15 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I play online games. There is a trans female in my guild. No one knew they were trans for a long time because they always used female pronouns. They are a very skilled player. Upon learning they were a biological male all the rest of the males went "Oh that makes sense. She's so good." Implying biological women are inherently less skilled.

Literally a real life example. But this goes for any field, especially stem where men can replace women with "transwomen" and eventually women's inclusion and voices are drowned out and the representation is overwhemingly male. Sexism is still rampant and will never be unlearned because we can just replace "woman" with "transwoman" and start calling women "birthing person" and it's woke now.

Transwomen were also raised in a patriarchal culture that has catered to them their whole lives and upon transitioning to female they DO NOT lose this entitlement. Hence why they try to occupy every female space and are trying to destroy sex based rights women paid for in blood.

Holy god damn shit, what a mindfuck. The entire basis and foundation on which their relationship was built is literally being fucking destroyed and this shitbag has the audacity to come out with "I ThOuGhT YouR LoVE wAs UnConDiTiOnAl." Like the manipulative fuck that he is, implying that she should have utterly NO SAY OR AUTONOMY in what she wants in her own goddamn relationship.

Man this shit lights me up.

How problematic is accepting a man as a woman or a woman as a man if they pass well enough? And what problems does that bring? by Tea_Or_Coffee in GenderCritical

[–]TeaAndCigarettes 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

It really doesn't matter if they pass. Someone "passing" does not excuse them from accepting basic science like the fact that men and women exist. It does not excuse them from the reality that women are oppressed by men. "Passing" does not mean they get to talk over women who speak about the shitty realities they're forced to live.

If they are happy with how they present then good for them, live your best life. We can even be friends if you can respect the above. I literally ONLY get angry when my rights or my experiences are being stepped on.

Michael Tracey to Tucker Carlson: ACLU is advocating Transgender & Puberty blockers not civil rights by Rationalmind in GenderCritical

Tucker Carlson's thoughts on the transgender debate stem from a narrowminded and truly bigoted position where he just dislikes anything that isn't a white man. I can't stress enough how much of a NOT ALLY he and people like him are. This man will use defense of women as a talking point in this debate and then question why you're voting on another day. This man gives no shits about you.

We need to talk about SuperStraight. by TeaAndCigarettes in GenderCritical

[–]TeaAndCigarettes[S] 7 insightful - 1 fun7 insightful - 0 fun8 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I just spent a few hours in the discord server and after doing so I certainly feel like this movement, as a whole, really does not give a shit about radical feminists but they will happily use our talking points. The moderators also tagged me in posts to remind me that "trans women are women."

The debate jaunted around pedophilia and the overlap between transwomen and those that engage in that behavior which most tended to see the trend of. Myself and a few other radical feminists tried to bring up and discuss the inevitable conclusion of "Why are biological men primarily child predators?" and "Why are men the primary perpetrators of violent crime?" while providing facts and stats about this. It devolved quickly into a mess of "Not all men" and "Women are predators too!" while deny any fact presented and not questioning or even thinking about why the points we brought up are true.

In conclusion, this is a fun experience and a meme for men. They do not care about the people who are actually harmed by TRAs.

You're in good company. Though losing a good friend to this is painful as fuck.

It's a terrible place to be, it is NOT easy but it does pass.

Rose of Dawn and Blaire White are pretty reasonable in my opinion. They seem to understand that women are (or should be) a protected minority class who have created their own private spaces because men have shown repeatedly for thousands of years that they do not respect women's autonomy or privacy.

To be frank, I really don't mind sharing a space with someone like Blaire. She uses private spaces in changing areas and stuff like that because she understands that her...well. Parts. Might cause some discomfort. Not to mention they're pretty much all the way transitioned save for the ol snip snip and I can deal with that.

It just really awful that it's pretty much on a case by case basis because as a woman you really can't know which natal male is a threat and which isn't.

What do you think about "kinkshaming?" by threefingersam in GenderCritical

[–]TeaAndCigarettes 11 insightful - 1 fun11 insightful - 0 fun12 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I think there's lines.

If an actual loving couple of any sexual persuasion wants to experiment in the privacy of their own bedroom then mind your business.

If you want to wear your fursuit out in the open along with your diaper and get mad at people "kinkshaming" you then you can fuck right off forever. Same thing goes for public displays of BDSM outside of adult clubs made for the sort of thing. The parade or the grocery store is not an appropriate venue for your kinks.

Why this needs to be explained to people is beyond me.

I probably only shave my legs a couple times a year. The occasions are usually sex or swimsuit. I don't bother continuing relationships with men who are brainless, shallow pieces of shit so I'm pretty upfront about the rarity with which I shave my legs and if they don't like it we find a compromise, they learn to deal or they can go pound sand. I DO shave my armpits because having too much hair there just honestly irritates the hell out of me but it gets fairly long before it bothers me. Come to think of it, I work out at the gym and lift weights with spiky pits lol. No one has said shit but my gym is 95% female.

My point is I don't think its super rare and every women I have ever spoken to ever says she wishes she could go without the incessant shaving. Women aren't going to look at you with anything but a little shock and envy (perhaps disgust if the internalized misogyny is high) and if men pitch a fit then cut them out of your life.

Man, I had an ex who gave me so much hell about not shaving my vagina and I told him it itched and i hated it and he could deal. He wanted it smooth and hairless 27/4. Turned out to be into the kiddo stuff if you know what I mean.

TL;DR if a guy gives you hell about the hair then tell him to fuck off and take a flying leap he's not there for who you are.

Do you feel differently about heterosexual vs homosexual trans people? by Bogos in GenderCritical

[–]TeaAndCigarettes 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I think a lot of homosexuals tend to try and "correct" themselves or get "corrected" by trans "philosophy". I tend to just feel pity for female lesbians who try to be men and I can't help but notice how a lot of the more reasonable trans identified men tend to also be attracted to men.

I have to admit I'm much more comfortable with male attracted trans-identified men. I don't know what it is but on the whole they just seem so much more reasonable and logical than their counterparts. I never had an issue with the trans agenda until it became a bunch of men trying to aggressively colonize women's spaces and the crime statistics started rising.

We're voting for him out of being forced to pick between him and a worse evil. I'm voting for him so poor Ruth Bader Ginsburg can fucking retire and get replaced with someone who is hopefully not a dumpster fire of misogyny.

It's hard for me to say what to do because I would honestly drop his ass. If a guy told me "Hey, never talk about this thing important to you, bigot." I'd walk. Honestly, I feel like if he genuinely cared about you and ACTUALLY though you were being hateful he'd be trying to make you see the light at least because he cares about you. He's not even doing that he just wants you to shut up. That's fucked.

You sound like you're being gaslit. You're asking yourself all the questions someone does when they're being made to believe that reality is different then what their senses are telling them.

I would not tolerate being in a relationship with a man who would tell me my beliefs make me transphobic. I don't even tolerate trying to be FRIENDS with those men let alone trying to be romantic with them. Depending on how long you two have been together and the depth of your relationship and connection I would try to find some middle ground but if he is trying to force you to cede opinion or convince you that you're something you're not then it's time to move on.
