Oh, Autostraddle! A website which claims to be “the world’s most popular lesbian website” and “a progressively feminist online community for multiple generations of kickass lesbian, bisexual & otherwise inclined ladies,” likes to promote the opinions of men who erroneously call themselves “lesbians” and who give advice to women who are presumably lesbian and bisexual on how to have sex with men. It should really go without saying that giving advice to lesbians on how to have sex with men is neither progressive, nor feminist, nor lesbian.
An article called Holigay Gift Guide: Sex Toys for Trans Women, written by a “lesbian” trans woman, gives advice for what kind of sex toys to buy your Laydee for Christmas, and most of them are things to shove up his butt. It should really go without saying that lesbians don’t want to shove anything up men’s butts, even when those men are wearing dresses and makeup.
The article opens like this:
“Dating a trans woman is cool! Sleeping with a trans woman is cool! Fucking a trans women is cool!”
This coming from the “world’s most popular lesbian website”? I gotta tell you, this sounds a lot more like the world’s most popular autogynephile website. Ain’t no lesbian who wants to fuck a trans woman.
“Trans women have prostates! Or at least most of us do. And when it comes to sex, that’s a great thing! If she’s into that! Here are some toys to help you reach the g-spot in your favorite t-girl.”
You know why trans women have prostates? Because they’re male!
“Maybe you’ve already got the butt stuff covered. If that’s the case and you want to try some different things, I’ve got some ideas. When you’re a trans woman and you start hormones, one of the results is that your nipples become ridiculously sensitive. In order to take advantage of that, you can get the Rings of Fire Nipple Press Set or Feather Nipple Clamps.”
Okay, if my nipples were extra sensitive due to hormones, the LAST thing I’d want is a nipple clamp on them. Especially one called “Rings of fire.” Yikes! Could this maybe be a masochistic fetish?
“Condoms aren’t just for men, you know; they can come in real handy for sex with a trans woman.”
You know why condoms come in handy for sex with trans women? Because they have working penises that produce sperm! Because they’re male!
And then he suggests some lacy underwear that are open in the back for easy butt access. You don’t even want to see the picture of that.
Lesbians are not interested in sex with trans women. We are not interested in penises even if their owners call them ‘strapless’ or laydee sticks, and we are not interested in men’s butts. Lesbians are interested in female humans only. Male autogynephiles’ sexual desires do not belong on a lesbian website. Although bisexual women are attracted to men, they don’t read a lesbian magazine to learn about sex with men. If bisexual women are reading a lesbian magazine it’s for the woman-loving content.
Men are not women and they’re not lesbians.
