Fucking nonsense about me being on the right

I’ve been accused twice recently of being on the right by two not very well informed commenters. If you have read ANYTHING I’ve written you would know I am not on the right. Just to clarify:

  • I am against capitalism and wish to join the radical left
  • I regularly complain that the left around here is not left enough
  • I am pro-union
  • I am pro-social programs, and as long as capitalism exists, I believe we should have a full social safety net, and a guaranteed minimum income
  • I am interested in learning more about Marx because I think he was an important man with important theories which I will probably agree with
  • I am an atheist, and I make fun of organized religion
  • I am a lesbian
  • I am pro-gay rights
  • I am a feminist

Does any of this sound right wing to you? If anyone thinks I’m on the right, they either have not read anything I’ve ever written, or they don’t have a clue what right and left mean.

Criticizing transgenderism doesn’t put me on the right. What you are observing here is that people on the left are criticizing transgenderism, too. Get used to it.

  1. That’s a common trope, that looking askance at how transgender politics is rolling puts you on the right, because they do too. This is cherry-picking.

    In truth, the USian right doesn’t really understand transgenderism and tends to lump transgenderists in with homosexuals as all aberrant. The Iranians are clearer on the concept, as is any right-wing country that outlaws homosexuality and enforces medical treatment of homosexuals to “transition” them.

  2. As Miep says, real right wingers are anti-woman but pro-transgender. Women’s rights erode patriarchy; transitioning buys into stereotypes, even to the point of trying force biology to conform. How is it even difficult to tell the difference?

    If I remember right, Santorum and another wingnut have been quoted as supporting transition. They just don’t support rights for women.

  3. It’s a silencing tactic and I’m glad you are not going to be silenced! Yours is a voice of clarity, intelligence, and sanity. I am so glad you’re here and doing what you’re doing.

    I wish I could participate more, especially because you are writing about so many things of interest to me. But I am and will be crazy busy through the end of April. You can be sure I’ll be more vocal after that. 🙂

  4. Butch erasure…that we all want to be ‘men.’ Yeah…nope. Not even a little. I may wear jeans, t-shirts, boxer briefs, and shit-kickers, but my chewy center is all woman and my girlfriends wouldn’t have it any other way. As one so deftly put it, “if I wanted a man, I’d be with a man, but I much prefer you, babe.” So there’s that. I can honestly say that I have never felt like I was ‘born male,’ I was well-aware of the fact that I was a LESBIAN, a BUTCH LESBIAN at that, and I have fought more than my share of battles for the right to exist as such. While I recognize that there are those who would embrace their own reality and take what hormones are necessary to help them obtain their transgendering, their willingness to assimilate does not extend to everyone who is ‘like them’ but ‘not like them.’ Everything is fluid, this world is not black & white, ‘male’ and ‘female,’that would be too easy… it is a world of immutable greys and it is not our task to divide them out…to say which is which and which is wicked, to be shunned. It is our task to live within the greys, to know that we are all here, right now, for a reason, to pull together to make this our time and place.

    I have been in this world longer than most. I will not be erased.

  5. I think I might seem right wing because I’m far from being a pacifist.. I accept my views on war and state violence are really unacceptable to pacifists and most anarchists; if they want to call me right-wing for them, they can do. I think they’re wrong, but I never mind people disagreeing with me (I quite enjoy it!)

    I’m actually quite authoritarian left – not by objective standards. I’m still somewhat libertarian (true meaning of the word) on things like the political compass – but by anarchists standards, I am authoritarian.

    I’m not an orthodox Marxist or a Trotskyist, either. To them, I’m right-wing, as well, but for totally different reasons to why the anarchists think I’m right wing.

    To a lot of people I know, I’m terribly left-wing.

    Basically, the right/left axis is a blunt instrument.

    I wouldn’t even listen to people who think being gender critical is right wing. I see that as trolling if it’s not from a place of genuinely not knowing.

  6. When the Houston Equal Rights Ordinance went to a referendum vote last November and lost, all the opposition was branded as right-wing. WTF? Did you not see that the Marxist-Black Nationalist New Black Panther Party leadership appeared in the same TV ad with all those right wing guys?

    The whole campaign against HERO was focused (rightfully) on the overly vague gender identity provision. The opposition showed scary ads about creepers in bathrooms and locker rooms. The opposition never said anything negative about gays or lesbians, They just pounded on the trans issues.

    And you have to know that going anti-gay just don’t fly in Houston. We sent Annise Parker to the Mayor’s Office three times in a row, and if she hadn’t been term limited out, she’d probably still be mayor. Parker is one of the most powerful lesbians in recent history.

  7. Hey, if you’re new to the radical left I suggest Jason Unruhe’s blog and Youtube channel. He has made me into a person with very strong anti-imperialist views. He is pro-feminist, anti-porn and prostitution as well.

  8. From a leftist point of view, transgenderism as an ideology (which it totally is) is anti-materialist and incompatible with our theory. On a different note, did you know Mao banned beauty pagents because they objectify women? Don’t believe everything you hear Westerners say about Maoist China, the USSR, Venezuela or Cuba. A lot of it is outright slander, twisting the truth and lying.

    • I saw that and thought it was so weird. As far as I’m concerned, gay men are welcome to have student reps, because they are a sexual minority that still faces discrimination. It can only be a good development if the trans cult attacks gay men though–it’ll help more people reach peak trans.

      • I have been reading the comments on Pinknews, and wow, is all I can say. The MTTs in the comments are acting like immature bullies, natch. And as I am sure you know, Stonewall etc, all of gay history, really, was done by MTTs! Yep. LG is fucking lucky that the MTTs were supporting them and doing the majority of the work all along. And now the LG won’t make the T the #1 concern? How evil!

        I really, truly, believe, as more and more evidence comes in, that MTTs, at least, the most vocal ones, are suffering from a multitude of mental disorders. The purity of their narcissistic rage is just astounding. If i remember correctly, a commenter on another gender critical site pointed out that her husband, who has now revealed himself to be a ‘woman’, is absolutely obsessed with how every interaction with others is an attack on his transness. I can be pretty sensitive myself, as I do not have the best social skills, however, I tend to sit back and quietly question myself, whereas these MTTs attack, and they attack viciously. They are victims, and everyone is an oppressor. They justify their abusive behaviour by claiming that all criticism, no matter how minor, is a deadly attack on them. Intent is meaningless.

        I am currently playing a big online game, and there are numerous LGBT friendly player guilds. I won’t be joining one. Because chances are, the smallest thing, the tiniest faux pas, will trigger someone, and that person will go into a blinding rage. Fuck that.

          thank you! Bookmarked for reading later.

          That article about body dysmorphia made me think of this quote. An MTT was describing what it’s like to be trans, and this section stood out:

          . Conversely, dysmorphia would be like how some furries actively feel uncomfortable in human bodies. This is not to indicate that all furries are like this – many simply enjoy the subculture and fun involved. There is, however, a certain subset that feels they’d be significantly more comfortable as anthropomorphic sentients with specific features indicative of a particular animal

          Uhm. Wat?
          How in the hell do they ‘know’ they’d feel more comfortable in a wolf’s body? The fact is, you can’t know what it’s like to ‘be’ a wolf unless you are a fucking wolf, and you cannot be a wolf unless you have a wolf brain and are a member of the wolf species. I learned this my first day in Philosophy 101 ffs!

          Question: why is it that otherkin are always cool animals etc? Wolves. Cats. Tigers. Dragons. Why are do they never identify as ugly, boring animals?

          Found this site, which is an amazing parody of trans culture:

          http://squirrrelygirly.tumblr.com/FAQ

          4. Why squirrelkin?

          I’ve already answered this one so I’m just going to copy and paste it from the other post.

          – I’m a squirrelkin because I believe I was intended to be a squirrel, but for some reason, there was a mishap and I ended up assuming the form of a human.
          – How do I know I was intended to be a squirrel? There are lots of reasons. One, I only like eating nuts. I eat nuts throughout the day and I also plant them sometimes. When I laugh, people tell me that it sounds like a squirrel. I often find myself resisting the urge to scale trees whenever I go to the park because I know the general population doesn’t understand otherkin. But I love climbing trees. I’m also a very fast runner.

          Good stuff!

    • Thanks again Miep. I also like this site: http://transgenderreality.com/

      The peak trans stuff on reddit is also great. I found PurpleSage by googling ‘peak trans’. And that then lead to Cheki, whom I adore.

      What I really really hate though, is the ‘no true trans’ bullshit. You show them evidence of the violence, hate and misogyny that comes from the MTT community, and you are told that you are ‘misrepresenting’ and ‘misunderstanding simplistic arguments’ in order to *unfairly* attack trans people. Yet, these same SJWs have no problem blaming the entire Pro Life movement for their crazies, but if people in the trans movement are vicious and unstable, it is unfair to point it out. Double standards. They want every other group to own it’s crazies, yet they get a free pass because of ‘most oppressed status’.

      • The “no true trans” is just “no true scotsman” logical fallacy and a typical shifting goalpost strategy. It’s a pretty transparent argument when you say a man is really a woman just because he says so, but no true trans would be a guy in a dress pretending to be a woman, and engaging in sex crimes.

        There are a lot of solid sites criticising transgenderism. I have a lot of this material on mine and was thinking that maybe I should go back through it and tag and categorize it for easier reference, and then realized that transcritical had already done just that.

        Stop Trans Chauvinism was the first to do it, but they don’t do the tag/category thing.

    • This is what it means to be a cat:

      “Transgender individuals and people who suffer from phantom limb syndrome have dysphorias – a disruptive or painful feeling wherein portions of the body that the brain perceives should be there are not actually, physically, there.”

      Like my tail and ears. Yeah, my brain insists they should be there.

      “Conversely, dysmorphia would be like how some furries actively feel uncomfortable in human bodies.”

      Human bodies are awkward.

      I’d like to know how this explains the MTTs who keep their dicks and explain that those dicks are female in origin.

      • As far as I can tell, this was originally about people with pathological body dysphorias. Whether there is an actual biological marker for these is not clear to me, I don’t think the severe ones are common enough for it to be easy to do the research, as we live in a culture that has so many enforced gender scripting dictates. If your personality and preferences don’t obey these rules, it’s an easy jump to wish you were in a differently sexed body that aligned better to these cultural dictates. And much of the brain is plastic and affected by lived experience.

        At that point, genital surgery, etc., was considered a last-ditch measure for alleviating such dysphorias.

        Then the cross-dressers got in on the act. Cross-dressing is the most common sexual fetish presenting in male perpetrators of sex crimes. Since much of the public sees all deviance from the above-mentioned strictures as perversion, there has long been a tendency for sexual predators to try to ally themselves with movements about personal autonomy involving resisting these strictures. It wasn’t all that long ago that the gay rights movement had to kick out the pedophiles (lesbians led that, btw).

        Meanwhile, there were men who were serious about having the surgery but couldn’t afford it, and wanted to be accepted as women in advance. So what this all added up to was two separate but for all practical purposes indistinguishable cohorts of men with intact penises, who were all very invested in being perceived as women. Things have been going downhill ever since 😦

          yep, and the propaganda has been very successful

          I have no doubt that the SJW trans allies that I speak to – I show them the violent hate speech, the lesbophobia – and they pretend it does not exist or simply try to minimize it. They have bought into the propaganda that trans folks must be protected *at all costs*. That they are such special snowflakes, so delicate, that if they don’t get what they want that THEY WILL KILL THEMSELVES. That’s the big one. That’s their ace in the hole. Suicide is guaranteed if we don’t cater to their every wish. This was the argument being offered up in the thread that I copied the last quote from. That 3 year olds must be given puberty blockers if they like to play with dolls not trucks because their gender feelies are so intense that if denied puberty blockers they will commit suicide.

        • Yeah, it never seems to occur to these guys that lots of people are suicidal for various reasons and that this is a terrible thing requiring sensitive and sophisticated attention. It’s no better than arguments made for lobotomies or sticking people in madhouses. And gender dysphorias also are often comorbid conditions with depression and other conditions, but mental health professionals are increasingly discouraged from even considering this possibility and pressured by their own profession into just rubber stamping gender transition treatment, which effectively coerces them into malpractice.

          People who support transgenderism are supporting genderism, by definition, and part of genderism is that the ideal woman sacrifices herself for the greater good, and that those of us who disagree are somehow wrong or flawed. So we should just suck up the violence and wear our masochism badges with pride.

        • A couple more thoughts, about the fetish angle. A bit of a ramble, so bear with me!

          Forced feminization
          Trying to be rape crisis counsellors
          The obsession with the ‘natural submissiveness’ of women

          It all adds up, where the autogynephiles are concerned. The need to get lesbians to submit. Why are they not trying to seduce hetero or gay men? Why only lesbians? If ‘tw are women, real women’, then why can’t they suck each other’s ladycocks?

          Also, look at all of the serial killers who fetishize women’s clothing. Panties are a trophy. The one Canadian serial killer, a colonel, who dressed up in the lingerie of his victims and took sexy pix of himself.

          My ‘theory’, for want of a better word, is that they are sadomasochists who are turned on by the idea of female suffering, and that they get an extra thrill out of ‘being’ women. They want to experience female submissivness not only directly, but indirectly. They want to put the heels on, and pretend to be the damsel in distress, whilst getting their voyeuristic rocks off listening to rape victims spill their guts.

          And no doubt a few of them are exhibitionists. The ones who like to shower with their dicks hanging out in the ladies locker room. Lila Perry, with his penis clearly outlined under his thin satin skirt. Lila Perry, who just *had* to shower with the girls and wouldn’t accept a separate gender neutral area.

          So we have the objectification of women. An obsession with female submission. Suffering. Exhibitionism. “Woman” is an object, and in pretending to be her, to act out her submissiveness, they get a special masochistic thrill, which is even better if others are watching.
