#I AIN’T CAIT : The “Start of a New Trans Movement” Say Jenner Protesters
November 13, 2015
Two black male transwomen, two white lesbian non-binaries, and one white male autogynephile set the genderist world on its ear last night when the handful of protesters upstaged Caitlyn Jenner’s appearance at a $500 a plate benefit for the Chicago House, a non-profit founded to provide case management and services for individuals with HIV and AIDS. Like many such agencies the HIV funding is now being redirected to provide hormones to transgender individuals.
The Jenner event was hosted by ESPN commentator Chris “Christine” Kahrl, a white heterosexual male homphobe best known to GenderTrender readers as the fellow who called MMA fighter Tamika Brents a “noisy” black woman whose hospitalization with career ending injuries following her bout with male fighter Fallon Fox was her “just desserts” for excluding males from her lesbian dating pool.
Inside the event, Jenner regaled the multi-millionaire and billionaire white heterosexual “transwomen” Republicans with audience friendly anecdotes about his pleasurable hobby of secretly dressing up in his daughter’s clothes when they were not at home. Transgender male luminaries contracted by the E! entertainment network to act as his friends: Candis Cayne, Jenny Boylan, Kate Bornstein, attended him. Fallon Fox, the man who lied about his sex in order to batter women out of competition in the burgeoning female combat sports arena, sat next to him.In the under five hundred dollar seats, out on the curb, a quite different narrative was being told. This perspective was sponsored not by the 1%, not by rich white Republican men, not by the E! television network but by a young lesbian attempting to escape male persecution via testosterone injection named Billie Jane Kincaid and by a male attempting to escape persecution by other men for his naturally occurring “feminine” traits named Temara. Temara “Jaz” Robinson, a black bisexual male transwoman, is an accomplished organizer in the Black Lives Matter movement and sat on the Chicago ‘Black Trans Lives Matter’ panel in August with Monica James, who [since his release from prison four years ago following a seven year sentence for the aggravated battery of an off-duty gay police officer] has been active in the prison abolition movement.
Unlike the rest of the “LGBT” press, GenderTrender will let them speak for themselves.
This is Temara Robinson’s statement inciting the protest, from the facebook event page:
“caitlyn jenner literally makes me feel suicidal. This person is pretending to be trans for media attention. I hate this person’s whiteness, this person’s big meaty man voice, this person’s history of sexism and impregnating women (because all women stick their penis in someone and leave the children behind to become media trash stars). I hate this person’s tv show. I hate this person’s stupid magazine cover, and most of all, i hate the Chicago house for thinking that this is representative of trans people. jenner is a men’s right’s activist and deadbeat dad who is cashing in on media hype arond trans people. I DO NOT accept this person as a woman, trans or anything else. I”m going to be going off about this in the lobby and/or out front theatrically. If you have a problem with this, stay at home. Some people have actually had to suffer for being trans, not jenner. The Chicago house thinks trans people are just some frivolous dumbasses who want to wear pretty dresses. It’s about way more than that, at least for me and most other trans people who were around before the era of terrible action dudebro movie directors becoming women, walmart core rockstars becoming women, and terrible shows that make prison seem like summer camp. Liberation, not representation. I hate you jenner, and anyone who thinks that this person deserves support for their “courage”is transphobic. Im not that guy fuck that.
this person’s success is derived from white male privelege, then they appropriate an identity of trans people for a little dressup game media circus,and the nonprofit industrial complex eats this shit up. It’s so fitting. Rich guy helps make money for the social service organization that goes out of business if we actually eradicated homelessness. All of this is a frace of capitalism, racism and male supremacy.
This action is going to be sketchy as fuck. Just warning you. No thousand dollar sound system, no george sorors grant to fund us, no spineless, quid pro quo pushing political groups to “endorse us”, this is just some pissed off trans people who see right through the nonprofit industrial complex ego circle jerk and this trans-trender bruce jenner”

Temara Robinson’s statement after the protest:
“Instead of allowing the trolling of people who obviously have no idea what this action was about, and who want to pick at a few words and phrases that i said and say i’m just transphbic,l i’m going to post one more time a rundown of our messaging here and pin it. People who attended, and those who have been around me in an organizing or on a personal level understand that this is bullshit. Again, here is the full context of our message
“A nonprofit industrial complex, fuled by white male and daddy tranny egos, one that only seeks to perpetuate itself (that has overspent tokenized black trans women employees, paying part time, minimum wage hours) while paying CEOs nearly half a million dollars when there are more empty housing units in in xicago than there are homeless people, cannot exit if homelessness were eradicated.What have you bought into? what will it take to buy you out?
I present to anyone who will take it, a check, blank, paid to the order of “your white guilt”
Jenner, you took the male privelege train to the last stop and bought a ticket back out of boredom. The publicity and frivoloty of your transition insults the process of trans people geuinely breaking the violent gender biinary, as well as the women born female who you despise.
you insult women and trans people with your appropriation, your media spectacle, and your hatred for sickening, and the fact that the chicago house will pander to this, while paying their ceo six figures and expecting black trans womento take crumbs from the cookies we bake you.
This is the start of a new trans movement. An anti-racist, anti-colonialst, pro woman, trans movement that doesn’t take its orders from nonprofits, bilionare liberals or the state and doesn’t pander to an audence that would rather lazily bing watch us in prison than concieve for one moment of world were our bodily autonomy, self-definition, and freedom from violence and oppression are non-negotiable
To these queer and trans people i see walking out here, why were you inside there? Why would you rather see us pander to the systems that harm us for crumbs while we hand them cookies for not killing us (at least not right away)
Fuck that! Fuck Chicago house” –violet black”
Well there you have it.
When you want the unvarnished truth: You want GenderTrender. Thanks for stopping by.
