Because I forgot to set this to post last night- lol.

Male? Check. White? Check. Upper class? Check? Hetero? Check.

Howard is a business development consultant from Phoenix Arizona who flies frequently via US Airways as a high mileage executive preferred customer. For years now he has been entertaining himself by traveling in his tiny underwear and high heels and various sexualized female gender coded crossdresser ensembles. There are whole websites devoted to collecting photos of him in various airports over the years, and many a YouTubes. He has been accorded the nickname “Terminal” by afficianados and is regarded as something of a folk hero.

Well Howard is getting his 15 minutes of fame this week after someone linked Howard’s behavior to the incident of College football player Deshon Marman getting into legal trouble over refusing to pull up his pants that were hanging off his ass and his ejection from a US Airways flight. “Look at the carte blanche the white guy has to run around in sexay underwear while a black guy gets kicked off a plane for having his ass hang out of his pants” is the refrain. “look at the privilege”.

Not only has Howard been well treated as a preferred flyer while exhibiting his satin ensconced Nutts to the public, and has posed for pictures and videos which litter the internet, but when his 15 minutes of fame started he requested that media outlets not publish his NAME –even though his name is already ALL OVER THE INTERNET (and he gives it out freely to those photographing him). That’s somewhat surprising. But what is downright shocking is that the media RESPECTED the REQUEST of the public exhibitionist!!! Now THAT, my friends, is PRIVILEGE.

Can you imagine the treatment a woman would receive wearing these travel clothes? What about a 65 year old female executive with a droopy flabby gut? Would she be a preferred customer? What about a poor woman?  A Black woman? They would all be frikkin treated like dirt- at the very least. More likely they would be intercepted by law enforcement. Or beaten or raped. Or given a psychiatric evaluation. And would the media withhold their name which is plastered all over the internet at their request? Hell’s to the No.

This is what Privilege LOOKS LIKE. “Terminal” Privilege. I just thought you might want to have a look.

Of course, I believe everyone should have the right to wear whatever they want and be treated like gold. Should “Terminal” be stopped? Of course not. Privileged men should dress however they want in a free society – not that my opinion matters on the subject, or yours, or anyone’s you know because it’s Men, especially Rich White Hetero Men who make those rules.

And speaking of privileged men-  the male transgenders, especially those who have pursued voluntary medicalized disabililty (removal of healthy endocrine systems etc ) in order to bolster the superficial illusion that they are actually female are livid- livid I tell ya!  That a male would dress in whatever gendered clothes he wants without upholding genderism (by claiming that if he wears female gender markers he must actually be female). Heresy! Get your wig on NOW, mister!  How DARE an American wear whatever he wants- it’s transphooooobic for males to wear skirts! It’s transphooobic for gays to perform drag shows! It should be outlawed! Only those who claim to be the other sex in their “brain reproductive system” should be allowed to break the rules of gender! Obey! Obey! Obey!

Transgender Tropes 101

June 20, 2011

Transbian "Butch" blogger Tobi Hill-Meyer

You’re not even gonna BELIEVE this one.  About four years ago while looking for Lesbian sites on the internet I was confused by a site called LezGetReal. By all appearances it seemed to be one of the most active Lesbian blogs on the internet. But something seemed off about it. Like the fact that contributors all had big giant hair. And tons of makeup. And the articles were more often about M2T transgenders than Lesbians. And that  it seemed strangely off key, non reflective of any Lesbian community I had every been a part of. And the fact that none of my friends ever posted on it. I was quickly informed that LezGetReal was a proxy site- a Lesbian proxy site, or more accurately, a Transbian site where transgendered males pretended to be Lesbians. A site for “Trykes”. But not for out proud Transbians, but for ones that thought they were “on the down low”: Stealth. I haven’t gone back to it in years although it pops up with annoying frequency on internet searches of Lesbian issues.

WELL WELL WELL. Come to find out, courtesy of  The Washington Post: The editor of LezGetReal, Paula Brooks “is actually Bill Graber, 58, a retired Ohio military man and construction worker who said he had adopted his wife’s identity online. Graber said she was unaware he had been using her name on his site.

Brooks’s identity came under suspicion after news broke that a woman called Amina Arraf on the blog “A Gay Girl in Damascus” might not really be a Syrian lesbian.

Over the weekend, as journalists, bloggers and fans of Amina hunted for clues to the identity behind the blog, Brooks came under review as a possible suspect. Liz Henry, a Web producer at BlogHer.com, questioned Brooks’s involvement with Amina, as Amina had started to write about the Syrian uprising on Lez Get Real before starting her own blog.

MacMaster came forward Sunday to admit that he was behind the persona of Amina, but questions still remained about Brooks.

Brooks had told reporters at The Washington Post that she could only speak on the phone through her father because she was deaf. She provided a photograph of her license as proof of her identity, which showed a woman named Paula Brooks.

On Monday, we continued to question her identity. We spoke to the man who identified himself as her father, who finally admitted after numerous telephone conversations: “I am Paula Brooks.” That man turned out to be Bill Graber.

Graber said he started the site to write about gay issues after seeing the mistreatment of close friends who were a lesbian couple. He said the site was “done with the best of intentions.” As a former Air Force pilot, he also said he used the site to argue in favor of the Don’t Ask Don’t Tell repeal.

“I didn’t start this with my name because… I thought people wouldn’t take it seriously, me being a straight man,” he said.

He felt secure that no one would discover his true identity until the story of Amina started to unravel. He said his connection to Amina was purely coincidental and started when Amina commented on a post on the Lez Get Real site in February. It “was a major sock-puppet hoax crash into a major sock-puppet hoax.”

In the guise of Paula Brooks, Graber corresponded online with Tom MacMaster, thinking he was writing to Amina Arraf. Amina often flirted with Brooks, neither of the men realizing the other was pretending to be a lesbian.”

"Lesbian" Editor of "Lesbian" website LezGetReal: Bill Graber

 

Holy shit. Men will go to ANY LENGTHS to play Lesbian, to infiltrate the Lesbian community, to colonize, co-opt, pollute, dilute, ruin, and destroy the Lesbian community. And always the same excuse “I just wanted to have access to a community which excluded me as a heterosexual man”. “I wanted to force my way into a community of women”. “I wanted to feel like one of them”.

Yeah, Lez DO “GET REAL” fellas. I wonder what percentage of online Lesbians are actually female. And IRL also. All the creepos and lurkers so famous for frequenting dyke bars are putting on their “women suits” to bully their way into Lesbian space where they are not wanted. Or jerking off at home playing with their sock puppets.

Please watch both videos before commenting.

I’m pleased and honored to present a Guest Post from Radical Lesbian Feminist Bev Jo on RadFemHub. Click on the pic below to read:

*UPDATE- I was BANNED from the RadFem Hub “Collective” for sponsoring this post!  Check it out! You can see only ONE collective member commented on the post or even hit the “like” button! Then FCM suggested they LEAVE ME on the masthead/list of members so “No one will know”. Hahahaha. And REFUSED to remove me, even as she had time to Edit and/or Spam MY comments to my OWN post! If your comment was deleted, or edited without your consent: It was NOT DONE BY ME as I had been removed after publishing this post. I think it’s a FABULOUS article, and I’m glad so many of you agree. Especially the Lesbians. ;)

I STILL don’t know exactly what they found so problematic in the post. No one has been kind enough to share that with me. If you figure it out, LET ME KNOW. Thanks for the really shitty treatment RadFem Hub! And thanks for treating an icon of the Radical Lesbian Separatist community – who was kind enough to lend her support to the collective by writing the post- like SHIT. You’re TOO MUCH. No, really, I MEAN it.

This guy is hilarious- claims on national television that a bee sting in middle age, after marriage and children caused him to spontaneously “change sex” by “resetting his endocrine system”. Hahahahaha. omg. Of course the reporter never bothered to get a scientific confirmation- ruins the story! Lolol. Seems like the typical trans narrative- middle aged dude, lifelong crossdresser and autogynephile who obtains sexual excitement by imagining himself a woman, decides during mid-life crisis to take advantage of his privilege to live out his lifelong fantasy of embodying the sexualized female existence he has fantasized his whole fwapping life.

But that would take an element of honesty. And if there is one characteristic lacking in fantasies, especially those which require affirmation and participation of the nonconsensual bystander to be realized, it is honesty. But no matter. The nonconsensual participants are mere fodder for the greater purpose- which is the fantasy. Rubes. Marks. etc.

Which is a perfect introduction for the miraculous spontaneous bee-sting “sex change” of Chloe Prince:

Lord this dude gives Zoe Brain a run for his money- noted public figure and transactivist Zoe/Alan Brain claims he spontaneously underwent a gender change in mid-life after marriage and children due to a miraculous and unheard-of case of a spontaneous intersex condition- a miracle! unheard of in all science! Concurrent with his coincidental ingestion of testosterone suppressing androcur and estrogen. Brain also insists he is a “rocket scientist” although all objective information indicates he is a nine-year software engineer grad student PHD candidate. It takes nine years for high-schoolers to become an MD. So a nine-year grad student is pretty much a failed PHD. Sorry Alan! Not a rocket or any other type of scientist! And not intersex! The saddest part is how he exploits his 12 year old son (who has since disowned him) in his fake intersex transsexual fantasy as shown in this video:

Why don’t transsexuals admit they chose to become artificial “girls”? And why do some cling pathetically to a false intersex condition? Or to a “birth defect” of being born with a “female brain”? For some it’s shame. For others internalized homophobia. For example Zoe Brain is a rabid homophobe. Prior to his “miraculous” condition at the age of 47 he was an anti-gay blogger, stating that homosexuality “should be discouraged” and relaying when hearing about a friend’s gay union “The sound you hear is my skin crawling”. This from a man who now considers himself to be a heterosexual female, through no “fault” of his own, mind you. He’s not a dirty fag like the rest, and he’s not a shameful tranny either. It was the miracle! The fated bee sting! Not the shameful autogynephilia!
