More like a bunch of thug bullies beating up on the sissy kid in first grade.
Especially considering how elated some of these sick women are when a TS/TG person , who has suffered a life time of abuse commits suicide.
They can’t wait to use a TS/TG person’s suicide to show how mentally ill trans* people are.
Which is just so wonderful considering all the pain and hurt radfems cause.
These deceptive women use GID being in the DSM as part of their attack, never mentioning the role played by Christo-Fascists, RadFems, and money grubbing psych professionals who wanted a piece of the money pie in putting it there after the removal of homosexuality and as a way of replacing lost income.
Speaking of the DSM as a way of pathologizing people…
Perhaps some of these bigots suffer from Premenstrual dysphoric disorder…
Originally called late luteal phase dysphoric disorder (LLPDD), the disorder was renamed PMDD by the American Psychiatric Association in its May 1993 revision of the DSM-IV. It was not recognized as a disorder in the DSM-IV, but was noted in the appendix of the manual as a “disorder requiring further study.” The DSM-5, due for release in 2013, recognizes PMDD and gives precise and sophisticated guidelines for diagnosis.
PMDD is accepted as an illness by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) but has not as yet been listed as a separate disorder in the World Health Organization‘s International Classification of Diseases (ICD-10). Listing may be imminent, however, since the current alpha draft of ICD-11 extends recognition, albeit in a way lacking the clinical sophistication of the DSM-5 approach.
In 2003, the manufacturer of Prozac (fluoxetine) was required by the Committee for Proprietary Medicinal Products to remove PMDD from the list of indications for fluoxetine sold in Europe. Reflecting the approach of the ICD-10, the committee found that
…PMDD is not a well-established disease entity across Europe… There was considerable concern that women with less severe pre-menstrual symptoms might erroneously receive a diagnosis of PMDD resulting in widespread inappropriate short and long-term use of fluoxetine.
Wow gee… perhaps the APA and other Psychiatric organizations that the radfems are using to attack TS/TG people are actually misogynistic instruments of the patriarchy.
Or are they only full of shit when they pathologize women but not when they pathologized TS/TG people?
Inquiring minds wonder about that one…
How come one never really sees so called Radical Feminists showing the same level of anger they direct towards TS/TG people directed at the main pillars of the Patriarchy: Religion. It doesn’t matter every single major religion but here in the US the desert big three of Christianity, Islam and Judism are the main force behind the oppression of women.
Transsexual and transgender people aren’t behind the movement to end abortion or women’s access to contraception. Religion is.
One would think that instead of attacking the tiny minority group made up of TS/TG people all Radical Feminists would be militant atheists engaged in a full fledged war against religion that would include ELF/ALF type attacks on churches.
Instead radfem thugs like the KKK and other bigot groups pick on a powerless minority.
Not exactly the definition of courage or a show of any great understanding of who is oppressing whom.
Now the Douches over at one of the Hate Sites, that tries to pass itself off as “Liberation Collective”, which is sort of like the Christo-Fascists stealing the name of Susan B. Anthony to use on anti-abortion pregnancy crisis centers has produce a piece of propaganda filled with blood libels and half truths along with blatant lies.
Where have I seen this bullshit trip of creating paper tigers to slay before?
Oh yes the right wing is famous for it. Selectively edit stuff, set up false premises and then claim a certain group fails to meet the false criteria you then make some sort of asinine “Gotcha ” claim.
Lest unpack the shit this douche bag wrote.
Feminism is about the liberation of FEMALES/WOMEN from the system of MALE/MEN’S dominance
Gee as a working class woman I had hopes for so much more. Perhaps this is why I’ve tended to think of radical feminism as being something for privileged rich white women. The sort who go to private schools and become partners in law firms that support the Wall Street criminals.
Perhaps this is why I see class war against the rich as doing more to liberate me than radical bigotry.
For example, Julia Serano describes transfeminism as “a move away from viewing sexism as an overly simplistic, unilateral form of oppression, where men are the oppressors and women are the oppressed, end of story.”2 Avory Faucette complains “I also find that talk about gender inclusive feminism focuses a lot on men, or on battles of the sexes.”
Because the vast majority of men aren’t also oppressed by Capitalism and by sexism/gender.
Because the majority of women are heterosexual unlike the pathologically man hating radfems.
Because men are not form Mars and women are not from Venus like misogynists and radfems would have you believe.
Because both men and women are more alike than different and because most problems are shared.
One of the main issues for transfeminists currently, and an area where they consistently clash with feminists, is the demand that transwomen be included in all women’s spaces, everywhere. Many trans women refuse to acknowledge the VERY REAL differences between themselves and WBW (womyn-born-womyn) that affect our behavior, attitudes, and sense of safety.
I just love how radfem bigots who do not represent most feminists try to set themselves up as speaking for all feminists and all women.
In reality radfems creep the vast majority of women out and are responsible for the death of Second Wave Feminism. So go kiss your Valarie Solanis icon and fuck off.
STRAW DOG ALERT: In contrast, one of feminism’s primary activities and goals has traditionally been calling out and changing misogynist behavior, but where are the transfeminists on record denouncing the misogyny, lesbophobia, violence and death threats that women and feminists have received from some trans women?
And where have the radfem hate mongers been in calling out Gallus Mag and BevJo. For the record a number of TS/TG women called out Monica Roberts and Carolyn Ann on their, which were directed at bigots advocating anti-trans-violence and not at feminists in general.
Where have you been in calling out the radfem bigots?
Why do radfems all sound straight out of Focus on the Family or the American Family Association?
Why does their only message seem to be one of hatred towards Transsexual and Transgender people?
How come I run more articles on women’s reproductive rights on my blog, which is named “Women Born Transsexual” than most radfems ever run on theirs. I opted out of reproduction over 43 years ago and I still care about these issues because it is about a women’s right of self determination with regards to her own body, something that isn’t all that alien to most TS/TG people be they T to F or T to M.
At the same time I fail to see much of anything on any radfem’s blogs that would apply to heterosexual women or do the 90+ percent of women just not count?
For that matter I guess that radfems live in some sort of alternative universe where people aren’t oppressed for reasons of race and class because they are to busy peddling hatred of TS/TG people to ever expend energy on issues of race or class.
Considering the levels of unemployment and part-time work, the issues of impossible to pay student loans and mortgage scams and other economic issues that affect women one would expect to hear a radical feminist critique of the capitalist system.
But no… For a feminist critique of the economic system one has to go to socialist or communist women. Oddly enough those radical women seem to welcome TS/TG women just so long as we show up at the demonstrations.
Same is true with Code Pink. Of course I don’t really hear much from radfems regarding war and/or the war spending.
Mostly I’m left feeling that radfems are really a right wing funded organization paid for by Citizens United, Crossroads GPS or the Koch Brothers. That their main purpose in life is to disrupt the feminist community and distract them from the fight against the Republican War on Women.
