GenderTrender WINS!!!!!! Lifetime Achievement Award!

February 27, 2012

I’m typing this on a caviar-smeared blackberry from the VanityFair afterparty on the biggest most glamorous awards night of the year, that’s right it’s the Academy Awards!! We’re swimming in Cristal, the “lines” in the bathrooms are long😉 , I hear taffeta tearing in the distance, and Nick Nolte keeps trying to steal my gift bags. And I’m sitting at the WINNERS table, baby! It’s MY NIGHT. The night of my Lifetime Achievement Award!!!! No, not a stupid Lifetime Achievement Award from the Academy like the silly one Oprah Winfrey got tonight.

My prestigious award came from respected Transgriot blogger Monica “Fishy” Roberts! That’s right! GenderTrender WINS “Fishy’s” 2012 “Lifetime Achievement Award”- AND IT’S MY FIRST NOMINATION! What greater possible honor could I receive?

“Fishy” Roberts is so known for his charming (?) affectation of calling the females he impersonates “Fish” and “Fishy”, (as in: “Some of my young sistahs that wish to transition either don’t have the funds or don’t want to give hormone replacement therapy the time required to make them look ‘fishy'”). He was honored this year with the creation of an actual STATE LAW in response to his propensity for threatening to “pimp slap” lesbians and feminists, and for hosting and participating in gruesome bloody death threats against a lesbian activist on his public facebook wall.

What an honor for GenderTrender (which he calls a “radfem trans hate blog”) to win the 2012 “Group Award” (who is the “group”? Presumably all of YOU, my lovely readers and commenters! So CONGRATULATE YOURSELVES! Yes, the trans commenters too- PAT YOURSELVES ON THE BACK! I couldn’t have won this without you!)

Also winning this year is “radfem trans hate blogger”  gay male activist Dan Savage! Congrats Dan! Keep up the good work!

You LIKE ME! You REALLY LIKE ME! And I’m going to LIKE YOU RIGHT BACK! I’m going to SPREAD THE LIKE! Thank you for this lifetime honor! (tears up a little) I’m going to make sure my work continues to LIVE UP to this HONOR you have bestowed on me. (blows kiss).

I also want to thank my agent, and the stylist that found me the awesome Valentino haute couture that I wore for the occasion. (Presenter Monica “Fishy” Roberts wore flats and was accessorized by a “six inch neo-clit”.)

    Gallus, I’m too humble to be able to take any of the credit. Aw, shucks!

  2. KittyBarber Says:

    Yaaaay!!!!! I am SOOOOOOO happy! Congratulations, and yes, WE LIKE YOU, and some of us, I must confess, are also crushed out on you. This, having never seen even a photograph, nor any personal information, nay–your politics and your writing are more than enough. Ex ex, oh oh oh.

  3. yttik Says:

    Ha! Congratulations! …….I’d like to thank the Academy, my producers, hair and make up, my lovely wife who binged and purged for six weeks to be here, and the entire cast of Bridesmaid’s for telling penis jokes and reminding women of their place! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    This is somewhat unrelated, but I’m not sure how or where to spread the information. Lots of HHS grants related to GLBT/trans health care all of the sudden. I sincerely doubt these are going to used to investigate breast cancer in the lesbian community or any other problems for which we may be somewhat more vulnerable (as far as I know, there are no health problems that are UNIQUE to the lesbian community. In fact, if you match us against straight women–adjusted for income, race, age, weight, etc.–I think we’re a pretty healthy bunch. But SHHH! Keep that on the down-low. We don’t want straight women to find out, do we?)

    I am a professional grant writer, and if anybody here is an eligible applicant and wants to apply for a lesbian-oriented healthcare project, I’ll provide technical assistance for free.

    Too funny.

  6. bugbrennan Says:

    Congratulations Gallus! I credit your blog with much of the progress that’s occurred in the Lesbian Community over the last year or so. I am proud to virtually know you.

    Please keep blogging.

  7. Bev Jo Says:

    Oh Gallus, our champion!!! Yes, Kitty, I agree. No one like our Gallus. Wish we could have seen her accept the reward.

    Yessssssssssss!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Nay, not just like. We LOVE you, dear gallant Gallus the Courageous.

    And hey, I’ve met wild fish while underwater. What a smart, gorgeous, brave, magnificent, powerful, gorgeous bunch of animals. Many even reproduce with no physical contact whatsoever. Very wise. Men say they are less than mammals. Hey, they said women are less than men. It is just jealousy!

    I am so glad you are still here!

  8. Bev Jo Says:

    And thank you, yttik! It is SO nice that after seeing such heterosexist porn-garbage on that stage to come here and share support!

  9. SheilaG Says:

    Wow, a group Award, I love it. Pass the caviar and champaign! Good job, what a high honor, it’s not every RadFem blog that so gets recognized.

  10. la redactora Says:

    I am renaming them the “not all vaginas have women brigade.”*

    Beware the wandering and lonely vaginas!

    Congratulations😉.

    *Because they insist on introducing the footnote “not all women have vaginas” into every conversation that might have anything to do with female sex organs.

    • RoseVerbena Says:

      Oh, those sad wandering and lonely vaginas! They get so cold at night, poor dears. Thank goodness they’re good at climbing trees where they can build their nests and forage for moonbeams.

    • fmnst Says:

      La reda,

      I long for the day when onlookers in droves will point and cry out from the sidelines of the GBT parades, “Look! The Emperor has no vagina!”

      And GM,

      How fitting and telling that the award is one advocating *silencing* the emperors’ critics: the truth-tellers.

      (I won’t dignify them by calling them “emperesses,” since they are, in fact, male.)

      So here is my award to you, dear GM:

      The 2012 Lesbian Feminist Truth-Teller Award!

      THANK YOU for being an educated, courageous, smart, witty, passionate, funny, dedicated, persistent, analytical, insightful, rigorous, and most of all ***OUTSPOKEN*** LESBIAN FEMINIST TRUTH-TELLER in the intimidated, bullied, fearful, glassy-eyed crowd of a vast portion of society straining to believe the foolery that an emperor can have a vagina, because almost no one else has the fortitude, guts, and intellectual courage to question, think, research, and speak out as you do.

  11. Bev Jo Says:

    Everyone now: “WE LOVE GALLUS MAG, WE LOVE GALLUS MAG…..”

  12. Nicky Says:

    Congrats Gallus, I credit your blog for helping Intersex people see what Trans people are really all about and what their agenda is

  13. Nobody Special Says:

    I’m so happy for you, Gallus Mag! Be sure to put that award in your front window so the whole neighborhood can see it!

  14. GallusMag Says:

    THANKS EVERYONE!!!! Champagne for all!

  15. Feuerwerferin Says:

    Aw, too bad I didn’t comment more often.
    Anyway, CONGRATULATIONS to everyone! (tears up a little)

  16. Fern Says:

    Of course they will say you are a hater. I bet they think you’re a sexist too. Keep up the good work, GenderTrender!

  17. RoseVerbena Says:

    Well, my clit is anything but “neo” and it never even dreams of achieving the length of six inches (no, really, not even in its worst nightmares) but the idea of being honored in this way, even via occasional on-line association, has given the rest of me a tingle. There’s nothing quite like being called out as a “radfem trans hate blog” aficionado to make this natural born woman proud as a peahen. Congrats, GenderTrender and GallusMag. Maybe some day soon we’ll be celebrating a law of our own: a law to keep cross-dressing nut-bags out of our safe and private female-only spaces.

  18. SheilaG Says:

    Priests wrote a book that described how witches stole men’s penis’ and put them in nests, and fed the penis’ corn. These women were burned as witches… wandering penis anyone? The Hammer of the Witches was the book.
