I’ve had this blog for about fourteen months, and during that time have considered myself fortunate to have received very few negative comments or emails regarding my decisions about my transgender child. I also rarely check my blog stats, and at any given time could not even tell you how many followers i have (although my son occasionally updates me). I find it easier to imagine that i’m just writing to those of you who regularly comment and to those few whom i’ve shared this blog with who know me personally than the overwhelming and intimidating thought that any and every human connected to the internet can read what i write here.
"But there's no such thing as autogynephilia!": Phone Sex, the Male Gaze, and How Blanchard and Trans* Activists Both Get It Wrong
May 3, 2013
Whenever radical feminists and trans* activists clash about trans* issues, there's a major divide on the issue of something called "autogynephilia."
Autogynephilia is often advanced as one of two forms of transsexuality for men--the other involves a very feminine homosexuality that manifests as transsexuality. I don't buy into Blanchard's easy two-part typology. But at the same time, it's ridiculous for trans* people and their allies to claim that autogynephilia isn't real.
ive been doing this awhile now, and i can report that i have been a target from day one or thereabouts, when the fun fems and sex-pozzers first tried to silence me. this was even before i received my first rape or death threat -- it was the women that nearly did me in! granted, half these "women" were probably men, but not…

Was poking around Good Reads last night and was shocked (not really) to see that Privilege Denying Tranny Of the Year, Jay "Joy" Ladin, rated his ex-wife's book back in November of 2012. But things got better. Apparently giving her a one star review wasn't enough.
Check the date, his butt hurt so much about this book that he just posted a nasty review full of sexism and misogyny.
It was recently announced that the Oregon Health Plan, which provides healthcare coverage to low-income residents of Oregon, will cover “medical care” for “transgender” children starting October 1, 2014. 
The official text of the Oregon Health Plan guideline reads:
“Hormone treatment is included on this line only for use in delaying the onset of puberty and/or continued pubertal development with GnRH analogues for gender questioning children and adolescents.

You may have noticed that posts have been a bit on the thin side since January 19 when my system was wiped out by a trojan or virus. Many of you have reached out with information and donations and support. As of about an hour ago the last of my data and system has been fully restored. I can’t tell you how incredibly happy this makes me. GenderTrender would quite literally no longer exist were it not for your kindness and help. I just want to thank you (you know who you are!). I would like to give you all a hug and a kiss but a virtual one will, in most cases, have to suffice. THANK YOU. And get ready for some seriously kick-ass posts. XOXOXOXOXOXOX

JRR is NOT JOKING, y'all! Not above and not below. But neither are we.

i have experienced a blogging crisis recently. is this a first-world problem? oh dear. actually, its a speech problem, a silencing problem. women around the world experience this, and i experience it too. this is why i am a radical feminist, afterall.

I have been on the internet for about a decade now, and throughout the course of my 10-year long browsing session, I have engaged in many threads, topics, discussions, arguments, and debates about homosexuality. These topics have pertained to all sorts of issues, such as whether homosexuality is or isn’t a choice, whether gay people should have children, if gay people are gross or not, if AIDs is a “gay people disease.” And in all these discussions, at this point dozens, if not over a hundred, the word “homophobia” has rarely crept into all the sentences, paragraphs, pages, threads.
