I am at a point where I will not accept that some one is transsexual and not transgender until they actually have sex reassignment surgery and I am not talking hormones and breast implant or chest reduction surgery.
I am tired of people who have no intention of getting SRS claiming they are transsexual because they think that somehow makes them more serious than if they use the term transgender for themselves.
I am even more tired of people telling me that I am being a bitch and an elitist because I say I am transsexual and not part of the transgender community because I had SRS. I find myself feeling used.
Transgender Activists have used those of us who get SRS to legitimatize the idea of those who will never get SRS. They then criticize us us for saying we have our own causes now that we are women or men as the case may be and that we find feminism, same-sex marriage, media reform, anti-globalization, environmental causes more important than the transgender cause.
Some people after SRS are even apolitical and just want to assimilate into the sex they have been reassigned to.
Most of us have zero interest in redefining away the “gender binary”. In fact many of us don’t see that much of a rigidly defined gender binary in the modern western world where both men and women hold down crappy oppressive jobs where everyone wears the company designated virtual uniform.
When it was announced last week that long time Gay and Lesbian Rights Advocate Chastity Bono had started the T to M process and had come out as transsexual taking the name Chaz I wasn’t surprised by the ignorant babble of the Christo-Fascist morons. That is to be expected whenever anyone does anything that isn’t consistent with their strangely bigoted superstitious belief structure and its embrace of misogynistic gender roles.
But then we have the unfortunate spokesperson, Mara Keisling once again opening her trap and shoving both feet into it
And on Pam’s House Blend
Someone’s decision to transition does not necessarily mean they are undergoing gender reassignment surgery, and in many cases they do not, said Mara Keisling, executive director of the Washington-based National Center for Transgender Equality.
“The whole media fixation on surgery is kind of misplaced,” she said. “Almost no transgender people ever have surgery. We don’t have any idea how many do.” An estimated one-quarter to one-half percent of the American population is transsexual, however, Keisling said. “It’s sort of a general term that encompasses both or either a social transition or a medical transition.”
Keisling said she was unaware of the specifics in Bono’s case, but speaking generally, a transition means that he will now want to be “known, seen, viewed” as a male.
“The actual details depend on his needs and wants and his doctor’s needs and wants,” she said.
Oh no, she didn’t really say that, did she?
I’m afraid she did. Call it a moment of accidental candor that revealed the whole contemptuous agenda of the transgender movement and their hatred of transsexuals who actually get SRS and get on with their lives if you will. Try to explain it away or clarify it but those of us who have been saying that the transgender activists have been colonizing and erasing the lives of transsexuals for some 20 years now know this is actually how transgenders view us.
I struggle with the idea WBTs and MBTs should support hate crimes bills and anti-discrimination laws because that is the right thing to do. Yet I feel used by people who have colonized my life and who refuse to distinguish between me and a bunch of…
… Dare I say it? Men in dresses.
