It was very amusing to read about the “feminist” festival in Germany that declared that clitorises are “exclusionary.” As Susan Cox writes for Feminist Current:
“The festival, which features workshops, lectures, and art, had initially planned to include topics like, “clitoris/glitzoris” and “masturbation” as part of their art exhibition, but protocol documents from the last planning meeting now explain that the clitoris is “problematic,” because it refers to female anatomy.
The festival organizers have stated that, due to being a “queer Lady*fest,” it shouldn’t empower “only certain groups,” such as those with clitorises, and that the festival will not be “excluding any groups” by referencing female anatomy. Lady*fest claims these actions embody their policy, which translates to, “be tender to all genders,” and that being mindful of how female anatomy offends people will provide “a safer space to all human beings by applying awareness.”
The funny thing is, any anatomy can be female anatomy if the owner says so, and in fact, a penis can even be called a clitoris. Remember this comic by the creepy adult male who imagines himself as a child teaching a girl to think of his penis as a clitoris?
In the alternate universe that trans activists live in, a penis can be a large clitoris that you pee through any time someone says it is. So who says talking about the clitoris is even exclusionary? Can’t trans women just consider their anatomy a clitoris and then feel included in the women’s festival?
The thing is, trans activists don’t even bother to make sure their arguments are internally consistent. They just want the women around them to obey them at all times and never question their claims even if they make no sense. Is the clitoris a part of only “cis” women’s anatomy that triggers trans women’s dysphoria when mentioned, or is it the name for any anatomy that belongs to a person who identifies as female? If trans women have a large clitoris that they can pee through, why would mentioning the clitoris be triggering?
At least get your story straight if you’re going to bully us into believing your crap.
Which is it, Stephie? Do you have a “girl’s penis” or a “large clitoris”?
