    In my opinion, Precious, here, demonstrates that–contra Blanchard, there is no bright line between gay transsexuals and het autogynephiles. This guy clearly is enormously turned on by being femmy.

  2. cherryblossomlife Says:

    I do agree with Davina that drag queens are still being offensive when they “do woman”… but idk, they just make me SMILE, for some reason. Precious was making me smile as I watched him, because he was so comfortable in his homosexuality.
    Whereas I get a completely different gut reaction (obviously) when I see transwomen even though they all basically look exactly the same.
    Transwomen are so *aggressive* for a start, whereas drag queens are not. Transwomen have no sense of irony, and severe case of homophobia and woman-hatred. And they’re the nice ones! The autogynophiles are nothing but sick perverts.

      ohhhh, just got half way into the vid! He now thinks he is a transwoman! Sorry!!! Ignore the last comment.
      This stuff just messes with my mind.

      • flugelrod Says:

        Drag queens and mtf’s are the same thing, acting out what they think a woman is meant to be like in their idea by dressing as them they think they become women.

  3. Ave Says:

    I can’t stand the whole drag thing, it’s entertaining sometimes, but it basically says a male ccan’t live in a feminine way without being over the top.
    on the other hand, the feminine males who want to live in a serious way unfortunately end up doing the “transwoman” thing

    I had to stop watching when he started gushing about what a woman he is because he looooves clothes and shoes and getting his nails done.That’s what it means to be a woman? Really?

    No, here’s reality, you narcissistic pricks. This month what it means to be a woman is getting gang raped on a bus until you die from it. It means being drugged and carried to multiple parties where teenage boys rape you, piss on you, film it, and laugh. It means surviving rape by your father to be flogged by your government. Just to name a few of the more popular atrocities for 2013.

    Being a woman means hating your body so much you’d rather vomit every day than live in it. It means never having money to pay the rent. It means being sold into marriage at age 12 and being dead from childbirth at age 13. Everywhere around the world, it means being aborted and starved and sliced and violated and beaten and never, ever seeing an end to male sadism.

    Shoes? Nails? Beautiful suits?

    These men make me. So. Fucking. Angry.

    • Beth Says:

      Ech, people like this make me feel bad for going shopping and getting my nails, and hair done. I swear, we’re not all this vacuous! None of it makes me a female, I do these things because I like them.

      There was another gang rape on a bus in Dehli:

      ” The number of reported rapes in India — a country where a cultural stigma keeps many victims from reporting the crime — has increased drastically, from 2,487 in 1971 to 24,206 in 2011, according to official figures.”

      and another gang rape:

      Meanwhile, trans are protesting feminists for wanting safety from men.

      I am so angry.

    • Marie-France Lesage Says:

      I hear you, my heart. I hear you in my bones.

      They will never, ever, EVER understand how shallow and insensitive and ignorant they are, how blind they are, how insulting.

      But your REAL sisters hear you and share your pain.

      As long as they are just playing dress up, I can tolerate them — but as soon as they start claiming to BE women. No. Just…no.

      • Adrian Says:

        This. The level of appropriation is just completely at a different level when they start in with the “but I’m really a woman, INSIDE” nonsense. That’s the point at which they are claiming to know what women think (starting with the supposed shoe obsession!) and put us in a box – as long as it’s dress up, acknowledged as dress up, and acknowledged as an exaggeration, for me at least it’s not as offensive. They perpetuate a stereotype as they play what amounts to an exaggerated character, but they are acknowledging that that’s what they’re doing, it’s a level stepped back with commentary.

        I know some men who like to wear skirts while NOT playing at “woman” at all, also. They’re just men in skirts. Period. Nonconformist, but they come across as comfortable as themselves, as men, and it’s actually refreshing.

    • Well said. All of it. WOMEN know what it is to be a woman, and this male fantasy BS is NOT EVEN CLOSE.

    Here’s “Precious” when he’s not wearing LaydeeFace. (Lime green t-shirt).

  6. Kes Says:

    I wish I had read the links on the right and had understood the general tone of this blog before I commented. I greatly fear that I’ll have women blasting me for not being feminist enough just as hard as any jackass of a guy wanting me to be quiet because of his entitlement issues.

    Please prove me wrong.

    • GallusMag Says:

      Kes I’m not even going to bother posting your comment. You say you are a hetero woman who has never met a trans person or a drag queen in your life and have no idea what is going on with any of this except WHAT ABOUT THE MENNNNN? WHAT ABOUT MEN’S FEEEELINGS? WHY ARE YOU LADIES BEING MEAN TO THE MENZZZZ? IT’S SO HAAAARD FOR THE MENZZZZZZ!
      My commenters are tired of answering the same entry-level bullshit. If you really want to know “what it’s all about” have the basic courtesy to peruse the blog before demanding the issues be explained to you. That is what it is here for. If you have read the blog and still have specific questions then by all means feel free. This blog is for people who are interested in gender and how it works.
      Oh, and FUCK the men.

      • Kes Says:

        The whole problem with your attitude is that transwomen are not men. But by all means, don’t post my comment. I don’t feel like being virtually eviscerated by misandrists any more than I do by misogynists. Either is ignorant bigotry.

  7. Buffalo Bills little dog in the movie “Silence of the Lambs” was named PRECIOUS.

    THIS would qualify as one of those “awkward moments”.

    • Marie-France Lesage Says:

      LMAO!!! We’re not supposed to notice any correlation between you-know-who and actual “trans women”! Naughty dyksfunctional!

    As some of you may know, my posting access to my GenderTrender blog was suspended at the end of the business day on Friday January 18. My last post, on Friday morning, was a collection of screen caps: a random sampling of the abusive and threatening tweets directed at Suzanne Moore following her “SEEING RED: THE POWER OF FEMALE ANGER” article re-publication.

    Prior to Friday morning’s post I did five controversial posts in succession:

    1.) I outed an MD and Phd who threatened to murder a bunch of radical feminists, also specifically targeting myself and Cathy Brennan. 1/10/2013 FRI

    2.) I posted the text of Professor Sheila Jeffeys’ submission to the Human Rights and Anti-Discrimination Bill 1/12/2013 SUN

    3.) I posted the entire text (and published imagery) of Julie Burchill’s “Transsexuals Should Cut it Out”, which was subsequently censored in toto by the Guardian/Observer and for which she is now facing a government criminal inquiry. 1/13/2013 MON

    4.) I posted commentary and photos and a partial re-blog of Dirt’s article calling out the racism and homophobia at the core of the initial trans response to Suzanne Moore’s use of the term “Brazillian transsexual” in her “SEEING RED: THE POWER OF FEMALE RAGE” article. 1/16/2013 THURS

    5.) I posted a video of Precious “Jewel” Davis, a (self-professed) gay drag queen who recently “turned trans” from the “We Happy Trans” project . 1/16/2013 THURS

    What a week!

    My blog is “newsy”. When things are going on, I post them. And there is a lot going on right now. Specifically, there is a peak of public discourse around the feminist critique of gender. We have about a week before the general public becomes bored with this topic (as they do with all topics). Right now, this discourse is peaking- into the mainstream- in a way I’m not sure it has ever done before. This is a critical time.

    Some of you have taken issue with the language Julie Burchill used in her now criminalized article and claim her bombastic tone has undermined the message. As if there was EVER a platform for that “message”. Suzanne Moore wasn’t “bombastic” and look what the fuck happened to her! Some of you have actively taken steps to discredit Burchill or distance yourself from her. Must step lightly, you say. Throw her off the boat! Backstabbing is a pointless discussion to have at this point. Clearly the trans politic is seizing the moment to re-frame their violent suppression of feminist – of WOMENS and LESBIAN voices- as an anguished “what about the menzzzz” cry to promote further censorship and no-platforming of feminist gender critiques, but remember, that is the same tact they use whether you are rude or polite. The polite Conway Hall feminist conference was no-platformed by the MRA/Trans alliance with terrorist bombing and murder threats. Mainstream feminist discourse has been taken over by males in an “oh so polite” way- backed up by threats of rape and death. Feminists who have tried to discourse with the trans politic have been- at best- mocked and distained. Whether you give an inch or a mile. Burchill simply chose to take on the abuse in stead of her friend Suzanne Moore. Julie is not a stupid woman. She has lanced a boil. That boil is the silencing of feminist voices by the transgender lobby. Whether that wound heals or encapsulates will be determined by our response. She has directed attention to this issue by throwing herself on a pyre into the angry mob. Immolation. That Burchill broad kicks some balls and goes down swinging. And where the fuck are you?

    Let’s not waste this opportunity, shall we? We have the world’s attention. LET US SPEAK.

    Unfortunately for me at GenderTrender, my voice has been silenced now by my website host at

    Yesterday Janet Mock of People Magazine, (he of “Girls Like Us” fame), decided to start a campaign against my blog. Early Friday morning (before my Suzanne Moore Tweet post) I became aware of a censorship campaign against GenderTrender, and all wordpress radical feminist blogs. There have been a million of these campaigns, but Mock is a very powerful man.
    Mock initially became enraged when he read my post (Number 4 above) and saw a photo of himself, and “misgendering” (because it mentioned that he was male) and decided that women have no right to discuss or post photos of public figures on feminist blogs. Instead of filing a complaint with wordpress or messaging me with his demands (or just shutting the fuck up) he started a twitter campaign to ban my blog which was quickly seized by trans activists smelling blood in the water following their successful censorship of Burchill and success in driving Suzanne Moore off of twitter. All the usual suspects came on board within minutes: Hetero female “fag” Stephen Ira, Lefty “TGirl” inventor of the ladystick Savanna Garmon, Transfeminist Natalie “Die cis scum” Reed and all the rest. NO DISCUSSION of TRANS ACTIVISM by WOMEN they railed. GAG THESE BITCHES.

    When I did not notice Mock’s campaign (because I never check my tweets and I was sleeping) he engaged his pals to post news articles complaining about’s hosting of gender critical and trans-critical blogs. The proposed banning of all female voices re: politics relating to gender, especially mine. I took action when I became aware of Mock’s campaign, specifically his charge that the public news-site photo I had used was off limits. To placate his male rage I replaced that pic with an alternate screen cap from another (NBC) appearance, and I kindly tweeted him that I had resolved his photo issue. Seriously, these guys literally think they can lobby on the national news and women have no right to discuss it. HOW DARE IT SPEAK???

    I posted a few of the Suzanne Moore tweets, went to work, and when I came home my blog had TWENTY FIVE THOUSAND hits. And I was LOCKED OUT by

    I now have NO WAY to POST on MY OWN BLOG due to It’s all well and good for feminists to have blogs and such that are gender critical, as long as no one is paying attention to them. You can post the most intelligent, elegant legal critique of the ways “Gender Identity” status negatively impacts woman AS LONG AS NO ONE READS IT. AS LONG AS NO ONE IS LISTENING. Women can have their tiny corners, their sekret cabals AS LONG AS NO ONE IS READING. Let the gals blow off steam in dark corners on Facebook. As long as it doesn’t hit the mainstream. Let the edumacated upper class folks have their little talks that no one finds interesting or engaging. But god forbid feminist voices start being heard en masse. God Forbid Julie Burchill says what EVERY FUCKING WOMAN ON EARTH IS THINKING. GOD FORBID Trans Media Watch cites GenderTrender as a SOURCE in the women vs. gender discourse.

    Someone said this as a comment on my blog recently, much better than I’m about to mis-quote, but it was basically that the transgender politic around the social hierarchy of the sexes is so utterly flimsy that it can tolerate no critique whatsoever from women, and as a male-centric philosophy the realities of female experience CANNOT be tolerated., hosted by Automattic, has prevented me from posting this on the blog I have built up from the ground against all odds. And Gosh who cares about that? Who cares about Bindel and Greer and Jeffreys and Brennan and Moore and Benvenuto and Burchill? We still have our little corners where they can’t silence us. Keep voices hushed. Avert your eyes, sisters. Let’s spectate.

    IF YOU GIVE A SHIT ABOUT ANY OF THIS – and I know many of you DO, I encourage you to RAISE A HOLY FUCKING SHITSTORM about the silencing of feminists who critique GENDER and PLASTIC SURGERY and MUTILATION and RAPE and FREEDOM FROM THE PEEN and ETC ETC ETC.

    I mean this literally: SPEAK NOW or FOREVER HOLD YOUR PEACE.
    Have a blog? UPDATE IT TODAY with a focus on FREEDOM OF SPEECH for women. COMPLAIN about death threats on women- and NOT to your “friends” on Facebook. COMPLAIN about CENSORSHIP of women. Call the fucking news agency. Call ten fucking friends to meet on Tuesday night to set out a goal-oriented political action plan to support freedom of speech for women. ASSERT the right for women to DISCUSS POLITICS even if those public figures are “TRANS GENDER”. Make that lame fucking account so you can leave that comment on that awful news story. Take action every single fucking day. But ESPECIALLY TODAY. It’s time to say NO to the censoring of women- even if they are more (or less!) plain-spoken than you would like.

    You liked GenderTrender, you counted on me- well I have been ELIMINATED. Fucking GAGGED because people were listening.
