Tranny Bingo

May 17, 2014

“Transgender Warrior” Indi Edwards on his new campaign to censor the words “tranny” and “gay” as slurs in the Gay community. Or something. Edwards is best known for his previous campaign of violent death threats against Lesbians and Feminists.

    “The last thing we hear before we’re bashed is the word tranny”

    SUCH DRAMA! Like these guys are being beaten into unconsciousness on the regular. Anyone have any stats on how often trans are physically assaulted for being trans? It would surprise me greatly if that number was higher than the number of women who get assaulted for being women.

    BTW let me take a moment to point out that ANY assault against ANYONE is wrong. All people deserve to be safe and free from violence.

    Also, did anyone else find Indi Edwards hilariously inarticulate and dull? Making thrilling death threats on the internet and then acting so boring on teevee. What a let down. Bonus lolz on the wig and Hot Topic, teenager-y get up he’s wearing. What a mess!


    • That argument isn’t that good even beside the drama.

      German doesn’t have a specific slur like dyke. It does have Lesbian-specific slurs of course, but not a one-word term like dyke. One of the most common slurs is “Scheißlesbe” (shit-Lesbian). I have heard it more than once. But it does not make me renounce Lesbe/lesbisch/Lesbian. And the vast majority of Lesbians here don’t either.

      And if I was English, I would not renounce dyke. Actually I like dyke very much, no matter it is used as a slur. Calling me a dyke is not more offensive than calling me “four eyes”. I do wear glasses, and I am a Lesbian.

      So that argument is really, really weak, in particular given the fact that it is not Lesbians and gays who are out attacking trannies. Here, there.

      • Lint Says:

        Since these types live to police others, I’m not surprised they are going after lesbians and gays, even tho as you correctly point out they are not a threat. All this fuss over a bingo night?

        If they had any sense they’d take be taking straight males head on but that’s not as easy as browbeating women and gays. I guess non autogynephilic MtTs like Janet Mock have stars in their eyes wrt straight men and autogynephilic MtTs are loathe to erode the base of their power.

    • GallusMag Says:

      Hot Topic! lolol

    • Jen Says:

      Most of these men are HUGE, unlikely they’re getting beaten up all the time.

  2. Sula Says:

    Of course Indiana wants to eradicate ‘tranny’; the truth is at 1.42 in the video. We are supposed be happy with being called ‘cis gendered society’ and Indiana wants to be called ‘normal’ pronouns like ‘male or female’. So, it’s ‘female’ for Indiana and cis gendered for me, a woman. Talk about appropriation of language!! I’m female, you’re not, you’re trans; stop trying to erase the thing that defines you and make it into something else!

    • Lint Says:

      Good point Sula– and it’s not even that they want to be referred to as man or woman- they want the biological terms male and female!

      • Cheval Says:

        And women should design their anatomy as “person with vagina” because
        1. the vagina emphasizes everything necessary for penis-penetration (seriously. I can’t bear pro-choice slogans saying “get out of my vagina”. Fetuses go in uteruses, and they don’t even have to go through the vagina to get out !)
        2. The body is a sum of parts, not a whole living completely interconnected entity, so it’s appropriate to only refer to the vagina. When science says sex affects how likely an anti-headache pill will work, it’s because women are lying not because the whole body is affected by hormones. When sciences says depression or trauma affect the physical health, it’s bullshit ?

      • Lint Says:

        Yes, Cheval. It really illuminates how they think about us when they want us to be reduced to “person with a vagina”. Disgusting… I’ll stick with WOMAN, thank you very much.

      • BadDyke Says:

        ” they want us to be reduced to “person with a vagina””
        Reading ‘Gender Hurts’, and we have references to even more attempts to remove references to our biology. So, rather than mothers, we are supposed, according to trans, to talk about people who give birth, and people who lactate. Large and small gametes don’t matter, penises are ladysticks, and so on and so on. ALL that matters is jenduh, and MY jenduh is whatever I say it is…………………….

        But we have one little glimmer of hope, in that Sheila Jeffreys references this very blog and our dear sister GallusMag! Despite the trans crowd and the libfems trying to spam Amazon etc with negative reviews of her book, the positive ones keep appearing as well! Women out there are finding out that they are NOT alone in disagreeing with this madness, that not everyone is prepared to ignore womens voices yet again!

    • Sage Says:

      In tranny world it is all about them because they’re the most oppressed, the most vulnerable, the most hated, the most everything. It’s all about them. See the narcissistic pattern here? They want to normalize themselves and negate everyone else. They are the laydees and femmes and we are the cis!

      If they like being “women” so much why don’t they campaign for the right of women not to be called sluts, bitches, whores, and hoes?! Of course, they have a problem with tranny but not with bitch, hoe, whore and slut. Assholes.

      How I wish this stupid government did not give these transsexuals the right to call themselves women, and instead called them a third “gender.” They aren’t women. They’re eunuchs, castrated men, a third gender.

      • Henke Says:

        Wasn’t a third gender taken into account in Germany ?
        It is also a debate going on here in Sweden too, not that big debate but there is one, about introducing a third gender that way everybody can be happy, hopefully.

    LOL – is he a Roseanne Barr impersonator? Need to ramp up on the personality, sarcasm and “zinger quotient,” if that’s the case.

  4. m Says:

    gimme a fucking break. he loves the attention. men live to overshadow women but they have no souls. fail.

    • liberalsareinsane Says:

      Over 7:00 allotted for this nonsense? Wow. Two grown men who demand others play along with their kink and some producer thought that deserved over 7 minutes. The world is one big enabler.

  5. Ben X Says:

    Well, at least “day against homophobia” is over, that day when all the news sites run articles by straight guys lecturing us about homophobia (because they’re lesbians.) Also, why did this drag queen drag gays into this issue? You never hear anything about gays anymore without it being totally dominated by trans (day against homophobia), and you never hear about trans without some equivocation with gays and lesbians. LEAVE US OUT OF THIS PLEASE.

    • coelacanth Says:

      May 17 is Day Against Homophobia and something called Trans Day of Remembrance is Nov 20. Not satisfied with one day a year to pretend that trans are the most killed population on earth (children are the most killed!), Trans Cult grabbed the Homophobia day and said that gays are all trans anyway so check your privilege gay men and share the power with trans or else. When asked why Nov 20 did not include the countless gay men killed around the world, Trans went berserk — WE are killed the most! You have everything; we have nothing! Boo hoo! Victim victim victim! Hence Homophobia Day is now about Trans Trans Trans. And Nov 20 is all labout Trans Trans Trans.

      Now the nightmare of World Pride is about to occur in Toronto in June and it is going to be the BIGGEST Trans event of all time they claim. Trans were crowing in the Toronto gay media (which trans rule) that their parade route (which last year had 300 trans maniacs in the rain blocking traffic and screaming that transphobic gay men had ruined their parade when actually they did not know they had to get a police permit — duh). This year the trans march route (being reified into the new march on Selma) is for some technical reason longer than the big gay parade on the Sunday and way longer than the now overshadowed Lesbian parade on Sat (which used to be trans infested until trans “took back the Dyke — the name of the womens parade — for radical trans and created a third parade). Some trans were squealing with venomous triumph that We are the MOST QUEER (one of the signs they carry to show gays that trans win the victim olympics and gays can go eat worms). INSANE! Having been born in Toronto, this will be the first hometown pride I will boycott (transcott) despite having attended almost all of them since 1982 when they began here (with no trans people squawking to hog the limelight). But didn’t you know, LGBTQ are all “Family” (yeah right — the Manson Family!.

      • Tobysgirl Says:

        I would only add that female children are the most frequently murdered category of human beings, right? And does anyone have any actual statistics on the precise number of trans murdered (presumably mostly during sex work)?


      • Holy shit. It’s all about them them them isn’t it? A parade for arrogant deluded narcisstic homophobes.

      • Ben X Says:

        I hope you’ll rethink using that kind of language, Coelacanth. The radfems are here to raise our consciousness to the misogynistic nature of those words. I only got my first clue about that when I started reading blogs like this one. What a shame about Xtra though… it seems like only five years ago gay media were still pretty solidly gay. Trying to stay edgy now that there’s same-sex marriage in Canada, I guess.

      • Adrian Says:

        I think “trans are the most queer!” sums up the ideology rather nicely.

        There’s this idea that trans are the most queer, the ultimate of the LGBTQWTF, and then when you (as you must!) apply the principle of “the most marginalized in the group must always be centered and permitted to speak longest and loudest” you end up with Trans, Inc taking over the representation and official voice of any and all LGBT orgs.

        The annoying part is how many people are so happy to go along with it under the idea that they wouldn’t want to be seen as less than open minded, or heaven forbid oppressive.

  6. coelacanth Says:

    PS SInce there have been a number of comments critical of trans by gay men on the Toronto web site Daily Xtra (purportedly LBGTQ but totally trans), their regular feature of a photo ad by a sexy guy is this time — guess what — a transman who is trying to get gay men to turn on to zim despite hiding zim”s vagina which once upon a time was not a genital of desire among homosexual men (but could be to bi or pansexual men). The transman even tries to up the seduction by telling gay men that trans men can buy bigger fake cocks — a statement that is both insane and utterly irrelevant to anything. This attempt to get gay men to try the transman vagina is part of the larger Trans Catechism that is written: “All genital preference is the same as racism.” The link is here and my comment under a different name is with it. I post it here on Gendertrender as more evidence but also because I know my comment will be gone within a few days — censored as transphobic by the transjacked editors of the Toronto web site.

    • morag99 Says:

      “hiding zim”s vagina”

      Snort! coelacanth, your rants about Transy Toronto are truly inspired.

      That such a small minority could wield such influence and drown out the voices of other minorities (Canada does, or used to, consider women a political minority) tells us that this is a status quo movement. Nay, this is a movement to take us backwards to a time when women, gays and lesbians knew their place. Transgenderists are the perfect silencers of dissent, of genuine progress and genuine justice, because as agents of patriarchal power and compulsory heterosexuality, they seem so improbable.


    • That’s so pathetic. They try to control peoples sexual attraction by using arguments. lol. That will not work.

    • Ks Says:

      Yeah I don’t think you can stop gay men from liking dick ffs, good luck with that trans!

      Also sorry but I hate the word “monosexual” used there and I think I’ve seen it on a comment over here (can’t remember if used unironically). It’s another queer theory word which attempts to propose lesbians as more privileged than bi women and gay men more privileged than bi men. Another queer theory mind-fuck.

      • Ashland Avenue Says:

        Of course he had to end that asskissing article with an insult – the old bullshit trope of “if genitals matter that much to you, then your sex life must be incredibly boring.” ::eyeroll::

        Then there’s this: “We gay men, rightly, make many demands of society in terms of accepting our being different. It’s about time we demanded from ourselves this same level of acceptance: of trans men and trans women.” Yeeeeah, but you see, I’m not expecting straight women to have sex with me. ‘Cuz that’s not how they roll. I guess this writer’s definition of “accepting” is waaaaay different than mine.


      • “The fact that he went out of his way to thank me for not being a dickhead about his gender identity suggested pretty strongly that he often did encounter gay men being dickheads about his gender identity.”

        Bullshit. It’s not the jendah identity it’s her biological sex. That’s what the evil gay dickheads aren’t attracted to.

        “Really, at the end of the day, if your entire sexual expression is centered around one eight-inch detail (um, if you’re lucky), it is possible that you may just have an incredibly boring sex life.”

        Yeah it should be centered around the current gender feels in other peoples head! Otherwise you are a boring bigot.

        “Just because I’m gay doesn’t mean I should limit my relationships—sexual or otherwise.”

        Don’t limit yourself! Submit to gender ideology.😀

        “It’s about time we demanded from ourselves this same level of acceptance: of trans men and trans women.”

        This article isn’t about acceptance. It’s about guilt tripping gay men because they are not attracted to f2t. You can accept people without having to offer your body. But author states the total opposite.

      • kesher Says:

        As long as transmen come clean about their trans status before anyone gets naked, or has significant physical contact, I agree that gay men shouldn’t be “dickheads” to transmen, but avoiding dickishness does not equal having sex with someone you’re not attracted to.

      • Ks Says:

        They seem to think we are policing whom they can and cannot have sex with. Have consensual sex with whoever you want, I don’t give a shit.

        People are not attracted to “gender identities”.
        Sexual orientation does not relate to “gender identities” but physical sex.
        Homosexuals are exclusively attracted to the same sex, if you’re not you’re a bisexual nothing wrong with that.
        Nobody is telling you who you should have sex with, just don’t call yourself gay or lesbian if you’re not.

        It’s not about “genital obsession” as they use as a common trope, sexual dimorphism is beyond that. I don’t want to have sex with somebody female, and lesbians do not want sex with males (even with inverted dicks) either.

        This is basic logic, it’s not hard. Evil radfems and gays are not stopping you from having sex (that seems to be what it’s all about), we are against you trying to use us a validation for your bullshit identities.

      • liberalsareinsane Says:

        “I agree that gay men shouldn’t be “dickheads” to transmen”

        I think everybody should be “dickheads” to trans. All of them; “transmen/’transwomen”! The molly coddling they get only enables their delusions.

        I agree with Ks post below.

    • BadDyke Says:

      Yep, let’s not get all COMPLICATED, gay men having to defend their right to be attracted to people with a penis…………..

      I particularly like the comments saying LOADs of other people out there into this, that, and the other, so WHY try to muscle-in on gay men?

      O, and the amazingly stereotypical tatts, whisky and cigars line…..

      As regards the link GM provided — someone desperately trying to convince himself he could REALLY do it, he’s managed to be attracted to the ‘false advertising’ of F2T, and hence thinks he could go through with it when actually faced with the genital truth……………

      If you like it, fair enough, but don’t tell anyone (including yourseld) that they’re WRONG if they don’t!

    Trans is enshrining in laws their version of the world and the rest of the LGBQ Idiocy Inc. supports and champions this Trans Hall Putsch. In 2014 the message being sold to the public is that homosexual, gay and lesbian all mean one thing: Transgender. Transyl-Mania uber alles!

      Absolutely disgusting. Do I have enough “ambition, dominance, athleticism, and self-reliance” to match my penis and make me cis? Or do I have enough “sympathy, loyalty and empathy” to push me into female jendur identity territory? And we’re the ones that need to go and EDUCATE OURSELVES apparently.

  8. GallusMag Says:

    Justin Bond
    A Missive to My Community: I’m writing this because I want to be very clear on where I come down on the recent controversies around the language issues with regards to our trans-narratives. I’ve been an advocate for finding new, inclusive, thoughtful and evolved language for those of us in the trans and gender non-conforming communities for some time now. Therefore I feel personally compelled to weigh in on these latest dramas that are really annoying the shit out of me. In my opinion there is ABSOLUTELY nothing wrong with Heklina changing the name of Trannyshack in an effort to “rebrand” her legendarily inclusive, irreverent celebration of Queer fabulousness. But keep in mind that the reason she has “evolved” is because she’s been forced to due to harassment from a group of people who have decided that instead of learning from our queer history of re-appropriating, owning, and disempowering words that ACCURATELY DESCRIBE WHO AND WHAT WE ARE -instead of taking those words that are sometimes used to hurt us by those who WILL HATE US NO MATTER WHAT and making them a part of what makes us wonderful, a small group of vocal “queers” has decided it’s better pursue a shame-based agenda. Therefore, it seems, Heklina has decided it’s easier to “rebrand” her party to avoid any more grief. That’s her decision and I applaud her for doing what she feels she needs to do. It still makes me sad. I also think there was nothing wrong with the whimsical “Female or Shemale” game played on RuPaul’s Drag Race -especially because the contestants couldn’t even tell the difference. Hello! That’s revolutionary!!! Not to mention the amazing talent displayed later in the episode by the transgender artists on the show which has now been pulled from the air. So. In lieu of standing up to the haters who seek to diminish us and our accomplishments and standing UNITED IN PRIDE IN OUR DIVERSITY these thoughtless “word police” instead go on the attack and achieve easy victories by harassing, silencing and shaming members of their own community and the allies who are thoughtful and sensitive enough to the reasons and feelings behind their anger that they are willing to listen and -as usual, blame themselves and make the changes because it’s just EASIER to “evolve” back into silent, bullied shame. What they fail to recognize is that by banishing the use of the word TRANNY they will not be getting rid of the transphobia of those who use it in a negative way. What it does do is steal a joyous and hard-won identity from those of us who are and have been perfectly comfortable, if not delighted to BE TRANNIES, but the fact is WE ARE NOT GOING AWAY. In case you didn’t know it WE’RE TOUGH! A reality check, if people think you are a tranny it’s because you are perceived as one. OWN IT! If they think that’s a bad thing then THEY ARE STUPID! If you don’t wish to own that word or any other word used to describe you other than “male” or “female” then I hope you are privileged enough to have been born with an appearance that will allow you to disappear into the passing world or that you or your generous, supportive family are able to afford the procedures which will make it possible for you to pass within the gender binary system you are catering your demands to. If you’re capable of doing that then GO ON AND DISAPPEAR INTO THE PASSING WORLD! Otherwise quit using your big, privileged -yet ignorant- mouths to make the words used to describe who we are a shameful thing. It is not shameful to be a tranny, a she-male, or any other word used to desctibe a gender variant individual. It’s shameful to harass people for being comfortable with who they are and the words they choose to use to describe themselves when you aren’t. That is my opinion on this ridicuous subject. As you can tell I’m angered by this trifling bullshit. We should be working on unifying our community and getting ourselves basic protections under the law. If everyone who is expending so much time and energy harassing their sisters about this word would harass their elected officials with the same amount of verve and fervor we’d be on the way to a much more trans-inclusive society. These words were written in love and anger. Mx Bond
