Good Riddance: Denise Magner alias Kiira Triea is Dead

I honestly don’t know how much more schadenfreude I can handle in such a short period of time. First Obama and the Democrats kick ass on the insane right wing Republicans and  then yesterday morning I learn Kiira Triea is dead.

Kiira was a sociopath, a compulsive liar with absolutely zero ethics or morality.

Everything about her was a fraud.

I first encountered this person in the late 1990s when she was an activist, with another fraud named Cheryl Chase.  They had an organization called ISNA.  Intersex North America.

Kiira absolutely hated transsexual and transgender people while claiming she was intersex.

I found it a little odd that she spent so much time trolling TS/TG mailing lists.

She made numerous claims.

But one stuck out.  She claimed involvement with the Berkeley Women’s Music Collective.

It just so happened that during the 1970s I had photographed a number of the women who recorded on Olivia Records, the label that the Berkeley Women’s Music Collective recorded on.  I still had a couple of contacts with people who had been part of Olivia and knew the Berkeley Women’s Music Collective.  None of them had ever heard of this person.

After about 2001 Kiira stopped posting to Trans-Theory.  The Bailey-Blanchard thing took over and Kiira popped up as a “Transkid.”  From intersex to transkid.  Quite some journey don’t cha think?

So Tuesday morning when I read the following on ENDABlog2:  For Those Who Think the Radphlegms Are the Worst that the LGBT Community Has to Offer, We Have: The Death of Denise Magner a/k/a Kiira Triea a/k/a Denise Tree

It was like learning that a cancer was no longer infecting our communities.

I contacted Andrea James and asked if I could run a long piece from her website.

    Kiira was a sociopath without peer. My path crossed with hers years ago and, once Alice Dreger fell for the scam, I concluded that serious storm clouds were gathering. I shed no tears for that one.

    With people like that I doubt the reality will ever surface. Does anyone actually know the reality of this person? Was she born natal female? Was she born intersexed? Was she born appearing male?

    People like that do a lot of damage to those who are transsexual and post-transsexual. In times of austerity it doesn’t take a lot to remove funding from healthcare programmes. Hoaxes like hers put those which remain in jeopardy.

    As for the damage she has done to kids with her hoaxes, that is unforgivable.

      steviejayne, I doubt that this individual’s “reality” matters much since somebody like that appears in all walks of life, in all kinds of contexts, What scares me is what we do not know about other activities these people were involved in. What other damage has been done?
