For the last 10 years I have been saying that the only real basic civil rights issue women of transsexual history should be concerned with regarding themselve is the proposition that after surgical sex reassignment that we are legally treated identically with women born women, “normborns”.
When infants are born they are assigned as male or female based on a quick look between the legs. It is only if that is inconclusive that other steps are taken.
Instead of wordy rapping games about gender and constructs, textual/subtextual readings and other post modern bullshit we should have the same standard applied to our sex assignments. If you have a penis/phallus you are male, a vulva/vagina then you are female. With all rights and legal definitions that apply to normborns now applying to us.
This means I was never big on marriages entered into as heterosexuals prior to coming out continuing using some sort of word games and legal mumbo jumbo. I’ve modified that one now that same sex marriage is becoming more accepted but I still think it had the potential for getting declared men even after SRS.
I do not want “transgender anti-discrimination protection” for myself. I want the same anti-discrimination protections extended to normborn females.
In short first and foremost I stand for the recognition of post-SRS women and men being treated as members of the sex to which they have been reassigned.
This should have absolutely nothing to do with transgender issues. Too long transgenders have tried to claim sameness. Now I’m a liberal, even left wing progressive woman and I will write letters of support for causes that are not my own but the hegemonic colonization of the lives of post-SRS women tends if anything to both anger me and to make me disinclined to offer the same enthusiastic support I might otherwise automatically give.
I am not transgender I never have been and the word game that claims we are alike is a scam, a con game that throws a ton of red herrings to cover up the reality and that is that people with transsexualism are different from people with transgenderism (even though both are probably innate just as so many things are). We get SRS, they have a million excuse all of which have a subtext of liking their boy-toy too much to have surgery that makes it into a girl-toy.
Futher many transgender people are misogynistic with a distinct contempt of women that denies women the right to say that women are adult females. I have heard some of the vilest abuse and had my genitals describe in the identical manner by right wing religious freaks, Janice Raymond and Transgender Rights Activists (TGRAs)
In short I am a woman identified woman and I want to be treated identically to all other women. I do not want to be included in transgender rights protections.
