About 12-13 years ago Out Magazine (IIRC) ran a cover story on Intersex. It had Cheryl Chase and Kiira Tirea and several other folks.
Wow yeah… Instant sympathy Suzanne Kessler wrote a book Lessons from the Intersex and I though that infant sex assigning via surgery sucked as bad as FGM (female genital mutilation) as performed in North African nations.
First of all I believe in consent and agency and all those sorts of empowering things. Sort of how people with transsexualism are treated as adults by enlightened physicians.
Then I encounter Kiira aka Denise Tree on various lists. Having a knowledge of the lesbian feminist history of California some of the things she confided in me regarding did not ring true. She claimed to have been part of the Berkeley Women’s Music Collective, a band that was active during the transwars.
This was when Sandy Stone was getting trashed. The devil is in the details. I know that John Money is sort of discredited yet he wrote a very detailed acount of many various intersex conditions.
But something else didn’t ring quite true and this is because I’ve heard so many impossible claims to intersex from people unwilling to admit to the intersex condition they do have which is transsexualism
Actual intersex people would have more to gain by pointing to the way transsexualism is dealt with in matters of agency than in perpetuating IGM.
Interestingly much of the surgery is pretty much the same other than agency.
Details, details. If one were actually transsexual and trying to pass oneself of as IS, what better way than pointing fingers at actual people with transsexualism and belittling the idea that it too is an intersex condition.
As time has gone on Kiira has been shown to be a fraud and a liar as has Cheryl Chase aka Bo Laurent. See Andrea James website.
Now we have the latest darling, Hontas Farmer. Am I supposed to be impressed because this one is a culture vulture hiding behind a burqa? I don’t think so. Lay that one on some one who believes in invisible sky daddies. You are about as real as some of the fake Indians like Carlos Castaneda.
But I must admit it is sort of amusing to watch Taliban Christers have social intercourse with people who fantasize about being actual Taliban.
Go read Ayaan Hirsi Ali and grow up. You are a human sock puppet and a laughing stock as well as an insult to actual women who are so oppressed they are forced to wear that crap for fear of having acid thrown in their faces.
