I got accused of "genital fetishism". What really are the definitions of "fetish" and "fetishization"? by AllInOne in GenderCritical

[–]anxietyaccount8 6 insightful - 1 fun6 insightful - 0 fun7 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

That's right, a fetish is supposed to be about non-sexual body parts. So you can't have a "vagina fetish" if you're a lesbian, that doesn't really make sense. If lesbians are not comfortable with penises, that's just part of their sexual boundaries.

Is that it? Is that really the definition of fetish? To be aroused by something non-sexual or sexual?

No, there's just two meanings, one is more casual, and one is actually a condition where you don't get aroused without a specific non-sexual object

"Fetishization" is a word that is becoming overused in strange ways. It was used mainly in academic contexts when talking about racism. But now I wouldn't be surprised if someone said "threesomes fetishize bisexuality" or something

I don't know if I can say I'm "re-peaking". But I just came across a trend which is horrifying so I hope radfems pay attention to this.

Non-binaries and TQ are already non-feminist. But I fear this could turn into active anti-feminism. One reason is because of their inexplicable hatred towards "cis women" and "straight women". They're always gatekeeping and criticizing random things, even if there's no reason or logic behind it.

It could be very plausible that they'll go after straight women who don't follow or subvert gender roles for "fetishizing and appropriating non-binary queerness" or something. That sounds exactly like something they would say.

I would have never thought that people on the left could turn into misogynists who love gender roles more than any conservative

All: What do you think about "non-binaries" and other "gender identities"? by BiologyIsReal in GCdebatesQT

[–]anxietyaccount8 7 insightful - 1 fun7 insightful - 0 fun8 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Some people who are non-binary appear to barely have body dysphoria, unlike trans people. A lot of people are identifying as "non-binary" because they want to fit in and be special.

In online spaces it's common to see non-binary people blaming "cis straight women" for random problems. It's the new "not like the other girls."

On the BDSM subreddit, somebody non-binary said that she's fine with her male partner dominating her, but not with being called "a woman". I honestly never expected this misogyny would come from other females.

Interesting tweets about how even the trans community changed by [deleted] in GenderCritical

I think that maybe trans people in the past were more focused on having body dysphoria and making it better, but now it's more about stereotypes that adhere to patriarchy. I just find it interesting that somebody else noticed. Even QT/trans people in the past had knowledge about radical feminism, and said "clothes have no gender, everyone should do whatever they want." Now it's a unanimous "if you're gnc, then you're non-binary or trans, if you're cis then you need to act this way"

What do you think about cases of young boys raised as girls, but eventually realizing they are boys? by FlanJam in GCdebatesQT

[–]anxietyaccount8 8 insightful - 1 fun8 insightful - 0 fun9 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Any time a child is forced to become trans, that's abusive. I've heard of the case with John Money before. But I don't remember what it means to be "raised as a girl?"

GC and radfems would probably say, nobody should be raised "as a girl" because male and female children should not be raised according to wildly different values.

If these trans kids grow up and realize they are actually the opposite sex they thought they were, of course it could lead to an identity change or feeling resentment.

Radfems agree that they would prefer if people did not contribute to porn/the sex industry. That's the #1 thing agreed on. Erotica is not necessarily connected to that industry.

I just had a run in with someone on Ovarit who appears to believe that if one has a partner who watches or has ever watched porn

That's very odd considering you can stop even if you watched it before. Also, how can you be anti-porn if you've never even seen it?

When it comes to discussion on kink, one person might see something as kink where another doesn't. Where is the line drawn? We don't need to decide for every individual person but I'd like to think feminism is about helping vulnerable women. For example, the image of a submissive/masochist woman is glamorized. So it's very likely that's why some women are participating in BDSM. Rather than going to the DMs of those women, or trying to stop all of them, I think RF should simply spread the word about why this is a negative trend.

I think the view "if a woman isn't submissive, sweet and feminine then she's abnormal/has a hormone imbalance/etc" is so extreme that most QT don't believe it. That's something that conservatives and "race realists" think. I've never seen someone QT in the old Reddit sub say that.

Do the people who use this phrase realize that it used to be taken for granted that the average person is vanilla?

Gen Z hasn't gotten to experience any of that. We have been exposed to things like BDSM at ages like 11 or 12. Kink is all over the Internet and young boys are watching porn at the age of 9.

And actually, I haven't even noticed a lot of young adults being anti-porn or having feminist values. At all. I HAVE seen them be very policing and toxic towards others (in fandoms), but that isn't being a "puritan".

Same-sex sexual desire as the natural, but not actualised, default (criticism of sexuality) by SexualityCritical in GCdebatesQT

[–]anxietyaccount8 9 insightful - 1 fun9 insightful - 0 fun10 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I understand your logic, it does seem like a lot of men and women don't even like each other. Gay couples and lesbian couples may have more in common with each other.

I knew I was straight when I was around 10/11. I see other women as being "too similar" to myself, which is a turn off. I have all their same parts. Most hetero people agree with this. That's why we're hetero. It's not "just conditioning".

I don't think the ideal relationship has to be gay, I can imagine a hetero relationship which is equal and very satisfactory. But it's hard to come by. And the mass media and porn have made things even worse. Many straight people just see "that's the man and that's the woman" instead of two human beings.

OP, to answer your question there can be many reasons why people develop paraphilias, I think a lot of it is environmental. I also agree that men are more likely to have them, it could be linked to testosterone.

In the cases where somebody develops one before puberty, it seems that there must be a genetic component.

At the same time, don't trust these kinds of studies 100%. I have a digit ratio correlated with being a lesbian, yet am very much not one.

You can look at sexuality in Roman history and see sexual practices we recognise today but interpreted in different ways.

The way that sexuality in ancient Rome was perceived is honestly not that different to how many men see it today in 2021. They still may think that giving pleasure to a woman is demeaning, and that being penetrated makes you "gayer" than the person doing the penetrating. I don't understand why people are so fascinated by sexuality in Ancient Rome/Greece. It's just sexist to me.

I'm generally looking at popular erotic culture. Yes I agree that is culturally dependent. Again don't blame me for what is popular erotic work with women.

See, I can only speak for my own self, but as a radfem and a straight woman, my own taste actually changed. All women are pretty much taught that men who are super dominant, rich, etc, are the most attractive. A lot of portrayals of these kinds of men are actually very unrealistic, for example books will show a man being sadistic and a literal rapist, but at the same time he will eventually love the woman protagonist. Sadistic men in real life don't tend to be so "perfect", obviously.

I guarantee you, the reason so many women like this sort of thing is simply because of societal influence.

Both the sexually dominant men aged 35-44 years and sexually submissive women aged 35-44 years perceived themselves as being more attractive.

This is just... isn't it SO obvious as to why that would be true?

Sometimes, I've seen TRAs talk about variations in sexuality and gender presentation that actually make a lot of sense. They say "of course a transwoman can be masculine, just like a cis woman can. Of course a transman can be feminine." But in reality, they don't practice what they preach. Many people don't seem to understand this nuance at all. They think that "women" are always completely comfortable being feminine and conforming. And "straight" just means boring.

On the subreddit r/GenderCynical, they occasionally call out GC people who just seem conservative and say "see? These so-called radfems support trad gender roles, but then they claim that we do that." But this is dishonest. They never take responsibility for their own movement making GNC people think they're trans.

And, if a trans person acts/dresses like their biological sex, why would they identify as trans in the first place? Well, maybe because they have body dysphoria. But the trans community isn't consistent with that either.

gay men are women/female brains in men's bodies

There are gay men who are totally masculine. I think the people who believe this think that all LGBT people are very GNC. Not always...

Also: "lesbians have male spirits", I mean it doesn't get sillier than this. An image of two women kissing each other is super manly, definitely.

Another reason that GCs don't like to say that, is that GC ideology came from radical feminism. We care about men and women, not "masculinity" and "femininity". What good does it do, for feminism, to say that masculine men and masculine women have more things in common than feminine women and masculine women? We promote female solidarity. I know that I personally have much more in common with a radfem (or any woman!) of ANY orientation than some random gay dude.

I think it's pretty odd that the meme got so popular, but I do like that people are talking about orientation as a topic because it seems like there's so much confusion these days...especially with young women...

I think that may be a bit cynical, maybe the reason it appealed to so many people is because it's seen as funny and a meme. Unlike our movement...

But you know what, you're right, I would have never expected the ENTIRE internet to be talking about it. It's weird that this happened.

Meet the Site More Violent Than Pornhub by eddyelric in GenderCritical

I'm sure the authorities know about this website. Why hasn't anything been done about it?

Not gonna lie, when I first learned about it, it made me question some of my views. If Pornhub or other mainstream sites were taken down, would it drive some people to go to the violent sites instead? It's so horrific that it makes vanilla porn seem wholesome in comparison. But still, the porn industry in general has caused so much problems.

I understand why you would think that, but most young men don't really like these liberals, and they're the ones telling them to date trans women. Wanting to be rebellious, they probably won't listen.

As for the ones that do have a fetishization of femininity, it's a good thing that they date (AGP?) trans women. And I'm not saying that as an insult! They probably would make a great match due to similar sexual interests.

LGBT Identification Rises to 5.6% of the US Population in Latest Estimate (Lesbians are decreasing % wise, while B & T are increasing) by BEB in GenderCritical

I'm sure some of these bi-identifying women are just trying to fit in, but for others, they really do feel bi. It makes sense that LGBT identification would increase as society became more accepting of it. From the perspective of radical feminism, I'm not seeing how this is a bad thing.

Refugees From Reality: Religious Trauma and Gender Identity by eddyelric in GenderCritical

This is a bit off topic, but I don't think religious people will ever see that their religion itself causes problems. Or maybe they just don't really care. Instead, I think religious conservatives are becoming even more emboldened because they see that TRAs and "degeneracy" are causing so many problems. I'm worried that they will try to implement extreme gender roles, and take away the rights of women & gay/bi people, if they come into power again.

That's wild to me. In the 2020s, any female who dresses that way would surely be calling herself "non-binary." But part of that is because of the sheer number of young people identifying as queer.

So, this seems a bit vague, are you guys specifically looking for abusers and sexual predators? And that's why you don't want them in the trans community either? If so, then that's fine, because the only problem GCs have with transmeds is their conservative beliefs. They could collaborate on this.

This is true of many people who are not "LGBT" as well.

True, I didn't mean to imply otherwise! The worst offenders of this stereotyping are those that believe in gender ideology, not even straight people. I just called it "heteronormative" because that's probably where the idea of "men need to be masculine, so therefore gay men must be feminine because they don't fit in" originated.

It is really shocking that in previous years, people seemed more comfortable with being casually "GNC" than right now!

I find that beyond a liking for dresses, long hair and objects that they and some others consider "girly," most males who call themselves "feminine" and are described by many others (without much thought) as "feminine" actually have very little in common with female people in their behaviors, attitudes, sense of self, level of self-regard and social entitlement. Coz being males, they were not raised as girls and subject to female socialization.

Yes I completely agree! Many LGBT people do not really fit under the stereotypical, heteronormative views of "masculine" and "feminine". And they don't need to, and neither do any of us! But people still insist on calling them that anyway.

Somebody else in this thread mentioned Jeffree Star, for example. He is seen as a "GNC" man, or "feminine", because of his appreciation of makeup and the way he looks. But he actually is "proud" and has kind of a domineering personality, which is not usually seen as being feminine at all.

I think that these kids maybe have an identification with the opposite sex peer group, or their opposite sex parent. And this is what is causing their dysphoria. They want to imitate the group of people that they identify with.

As for those who have a severe dysphoria about their body, it seems linked to homosexuality, in which case they may still want to be trans as adults. After all, many feminine gay men or butch lesbians have body dysphoria as adults, so they're kind of HSTS-Lite (in my opinion). Many on the Butch Lesbians subreddit want to have their breasts removed. But...again, it could be because they don't want men to see them as feminine. Without pressure from society, would they really want to look like trans men? I don't know...it would be hard to figure this out

Basically, if GCers were somehow able to eliminate gender roles, I do think less people would identify as trans, or have body dysphoria. But it's hard to know, because there's many reasons for trans identity. Based on the way I see gender, I would have expected most trans people to be bi. In reality, it seems most were HSTS, but then there are AGPs, and then there's that entire crisis with teenage girls having ROGD, and nowadays there are even MORE reasons... So, dysphoria can manifest itself in different ways, maybe in a GC society, it still couldn't be stopped?

We agree that Western men who find Asian women attractive are not paedophiles, but sick. I already made that clear.

That's not better, but whatever.

That might be. But in terms of sexual relations, I fail to see how any of the functions other than "merely a hole to be fucked" are relevant.

Women have a functioning vulva too. Don't forget about that.

It's disturbing to imply that a group of women are just "pedo bait".

Maybe not "mainly attracted", but I would be genuinely surprised if a male-attracted woman did not find male genitals attractive at all. I have seen some women say they are grossed out by certain dicks, but it may be an issue of poor hygiene (?)

A penis can't be feminine. It just...the word "feminine" is used to describe womanly things. It just doesn't feel right, to say that because a penis is smaller or "cute" (LOL) that makes it "feminine".

If a man wants to be dominated by anyone, be it a man or a woman, doesn't it mean he's bisexual?

Yes, technically, but my point was that for some men, they seem to have specific kinks that overshadow their orientation. But I have trouble understanding it. So maybe I shouldn't have said that, I know it's kind of confusing.

More and more people turn out are attracted to secondary sexual characteristics, "femininity", and "masculinity", rather than genitals.

Yeah, so what? Different people like different things. There are still those that care more about their physical body than gender presentation. I am only attracted to men, not "masculine people". They don't even have to be really masculine as long as they're male.

He says because he is only attracted to "feminine" men, and not "masculine" men, he is "straight".

Well, he is wrong in some ways, although, there's tons of "straight-passing" men just like him...

It may not seem like "normal" bisexuality to only like a specific gender presentation, but in fact I would still consider it a type of bisexuality, as do other radfems. Many men (there's a LOT of them) are specifically attracted to feminine people, regardless of if they are male or female. A transwoman would be a perfectly fine partner for them. But, not gonna lie, this specific preference creeps me out. I think it speaks to the phallocentrism of many men, that they don't care if they're literally fucking a male person, as long as they get to top somebody. Yet they still call themselves straight.

Is there such a thing as a "feminine" or "masculine" penis?

No.

There's some other men, who have a particular kink for BDSM scenarios, or being dominated, no matter who is doing it to them. In a way, I don't think they can always neatly be categorized as hetero/homo/bi.

We need to get to the root of the issue

True, but unfortunately many straight women themselves have contributed to the problem. Nothing will change in the near future, but at least some people are discovering the problematic qualities of porn!
