I was once a sweet trans advocate. Now I am an evil TERF. This video explains why.

My name is Crash and I’m a detransitioned woman. I blog about how and why I came to transition and then detransition at crashchaoscats.wordpress.com and at crashchaoscats.tumblr.com. I’ve been talking to, hanging out and organizing with other detransitioned women for around three years now. In that time I have watched and helped our community emerge. I’m going to stick to talking mostly about detransitioned women and not touch on detransitioned men because I can’t speak to their experience.
Look, you say you want the trans community to support detransitioned people but you just wrote an article that distorts and misrepresent our reality. It doesn’t help me or other detransitioned people when you spread misinformation about us. You’re not the first trans activist to do so and I don’t expect you to be the last. I’ve been reading the articles trans activists write about detransition for years now…

Folks, I know I’ve talked a lot on this blog about not letting weird stuff people say on the internet get to you. Well, here we go, I have identified the weird thing a person can say that makes me very reactive: when someone says people who detransition are so rare we pretty much don’t exist.
I totally exist! Not only do I exist, but I know a lot of other detransitioned people who are also super into the existing thing!
Here you go, my real name, my real face, here’s who I am. I expect to catch massive amounts of flak for this. I expect to encounter lots of people saying enraging, ignorant things. But you know, it would’ve been helpful to me if detransitioned people had a lot more videos on youtube when I had reached the point of being done with being trans. Also would’ve been way helpful…

(This is a response to this article; I’m reposting it here because their comment box doesn’t allow line breaks, so this way I can post a link to it for anyone else who absolutely cannot read that many words with no lines in between.)
“Where are the people who switched pronouns at 10, switched pronouns again at 25, and found the experience traumatizing? Where are the people who received unneeded medical interventions and were permanently, or temporarily, harmed?”
I transitioned FTM at 16, was on testosterone and had a double mastectomy by 17. I’m 20 now and back to understanding myself as a lesbian, like I was before I found out about transition and latched onto it as a way to “fix” body issues created by the challenges of growing up in a deeply misogynistic and lesbian-hating world. I don’t know if he’s ever planning on using the interview…

Video of the Rapist [NOTICE: Biko pulled this video offline July 26 after this article was published]
Transwoman activist Cherno Biko, a 24 year old male from Ohio, confessed to raping a female “transman” because he wanted to impregnate her and force her to bear his offspring. The confession was posted publicly on Medium.com and titled “Overcoming Sexual Assault”:
[NOTICE: Biko edited his post on July 26 after this article was published. Read his original unedited article here:
Link to his now edited article: https://medium.com/@chernobiko/overcoming-sexual-assault-ca54293fea01#.mj3qdyfsr
See the changes Biko made to his confession here:
The whole piece reads as a long non-pology, quickly shifting focus from Biko’s act of rape to descriptions of his own childhood abuse, and a heroic account of his own activism in the transwoman community. He published the piece without consulting or notifying the victim.
“Our relationship existed largely online and we bonded over all the little things only black trans folks can understand. After years of searching, I thought I found the second piece to the holy trinity I wanted to create, complete with a black trans man and our black non-binary baby.
I was wrong. He made it clear to me that some trans men do not wish to carry children and it’s not ok to fetishize them in that way. The first time we had sex I can barely remember, as it followed a night of drinking and smoking but I know that we broke two of the most important rules… consent and safe sex. When he told me that he felt used and violated, I immediately apologized and offered to support in whatever way I could.”
According to the victim, who responded publicly at length on twitter, the two of them barely knew each other. After messaging each other on social media they met in real life on March 26 of this year and agreed to have heterosexual intercourse. Suddenly in mid deed Cherno Biko whispered in the transman’s ear “I want you to have my babies”. He then reached down and pulled the condom off of his penis and proceeded to forcibly rape and ejaculate into the victim, attempting to cause an unwanted pregnancy.
Biko writes in his post:
“I was afraid that I had become the thing I feared the most, an abuser. And technically I did. I was filled with shame and guilt. In the days following I wanted to respond in all the ways my abuser didn’t. I listened more than I shared. I validated their feelings and answered all of the questions. I gave them space, read: “they blocked me on twitter.” But in April when their text messages became threatening and unhealthy I blocked their number, knowing that they would call me out on social media. After all it’s where we met but I was worried about the implications it would have on the movement. I didn’t want to become the ammunition for our enemies to keep framing folks like us as predators who need to be kept out of public bathrooms.”
The transman victim whom Biko raped and tried to forcibly impregnate posted screen caps of these supposedly “threatening and unhealthy” responses to being raped. They involved the perpetrator being confronted over his unwillingness to pay for the victim’s PEP [Post Exposure Prophylaxis] prescription to prevent HIV infection in the victim.
According to the CDC:
“PEP (post-exposure prophylaxis) means taking antiretroviral medicines (ART) after being potentially exposed to HIV to prevent becoming infected.
PEP should be used only in emergency situations and must be started within 72 hours after a recent possible exposure to HIV.”
The screencaps show Biko telling his victim – who lives in a rural area- that she should travel to a major metropolitan area and try to locate a city clinic that provides the medication for free. Biko stated, “It’s not that I don’t care I just don’t have the coin right now.” The cost was $80.
Cherno Biko currently resides in Brooklyn where he serves as co-chair to the Young Women’s Advisory Board of the New York City Council.

I can think of at least a dozen ways to make this video even more hilarious.
