EXIE CANNES STATE OF TRANS — A former columnist for the UK’s Guardian newspaper unleashed a transphobic rant directed at trans women in the form of a response to an article written by a UK trans activist in Vice Magazine.

Julie Burchill, a writer who has recently gained a bit of notoriety for her hate pieces on trans women, posted this response [excerpted] in the magazine’s comment section following Paris Lee’s article:

“Paris, you like it because you ARE still a YOUNG GAY BOY. And that’s what YOUNG GAY BOYS LIKE! Bless! . . .

What price the genital mutilation of a 7 year old brown-skinned girl child when THE MOST IMPORANT THING IN THE WORLD is big white blokes having their cocks cut off  . . .

Delude yourselves all you like, but in the way you lot harass born women, your bully boy side always shines through. And no amount of lipstick and plastic tits can cover that up.”

Reports say the comments have since been removed by Burchill.

Rather than deciphering what Burchill is saying here, I’ll just bring home the point that if Burchill is trying to make academic arguments for her views, she has pretty much failed here. This ad hominem rant (and previous others) voids the validity of her arguments. If she has an actual point to make, it’ll have to be made by someone else as I don’t care to wade through transphobic muck and neither should you.

I’d post the Vice link here but I got bombarded with junk video I could not get to stop at the site.
