  1. I had to stop reading about half way down. So fucking depressing…

    • southwest88 Says:

      I get you but I did not find it depressing – fascinating to see the men in womanface and their handmaidens being so openly anti-woman. Yes, we get that these men are not interested in hearing about women’s reproductive rights because they are not women and don’t share our issues.

    • Fruitopia Says:

      Don’t worry, most of those tweets didn’t have many likes or retweets. It gives me hope that these are fringe ideas and not that popular.

      • GallusMag Says:

        Huh?

        Janet Mock spoke at the DC march, and rapist Cherno Biko at the Ohio march. Are you living in a cave or what.


      • Cherno Biko led a group and spoke at the March…these men are being listened to and taken seriously. A number of people that I know who went to the march are all up in arms now, saying that the march was “cis-centric” and “trans-exclusionary.”

        Men will always try to take over women’s spaces, doesn’t matter if they’re men’s rights activists or trans activists or the gender queer crowd.

        In the weeks approaching the Women’s March on Washington, a woman in Los Angeles accidentally created what became the most popular accessory among protesters: a pussy hat.

        “I wanted to do something more than just show up,” Krista Suh told the Los Angeles Times. “How can I visually show someone what’s going on? And I realized as a California girl, I would be really cold in D.C. — it’s not tank-top weather year-round. So I thought maybe I could knit myself a hat.”

        Suh made the knitting pattern freely available online, and soon women across the country were working quickly to finish their own pink hats before the big day. The hats became a movement within a movement, turning President Donald Trump’s infamous “grab them by the pussy” comment on its head.

        While clever, Suh’s pussy hats set the tone for a march that would focus acutely on genitalia at the expense of the transgender community. Signs like “Pussy power,” “Viva la Vulva” and “Pussy grabs back” all sent a clear and oppressive message to trans women, especially: having a vagina is essential to womanhood.

        “The main reason I decided not to go was because of the pussy hats,” 28-year-old Jade Lejeck said in an interview Sunday night. “I get that they’re a response to the ‘grab them by the pussy’ thing, but I think some people fixated on it the wrong way.”

        Lejeck, a trans woman from Modesto, CA, said the hats signaled to her that there would be other trans-exclusionary messages at the women’s marches.

        She expected her local march to have its fair share of trans-exclusionary radical feminists, known as TERFs. As Lejeck described it, there are two categories of TERFS: One is the accidental TERF — “the ones who have signs that equate womanhood with having a vagina,” she said. The other category, Lejeck explained, includes feminists who argue trans women are actually men in disguise trying to infiltrate their spaces.

        Lejeck decided she would avoid both kinds of TERFs by abstaining from Modesto’s women’s march altogether; she had grocery shopping to do anyway.

        “I believe there’s a lot of inequality that has to do with genitals — that’s not something you can separate from the feminist movement,” Lejeck said. “But I feel like I’ve tried to get involved in feminism and there’s always been a blockade there for trans women.”


  2. Why do trans women have to make the Women’s March about them? Women like myself are alarmed that a sexist male like Donald Trump has been elected president because he and the Republicans will roll back progress in women’s reproductive rights. These men want to control what women do with their bodies because it gives them more power over the female populace and soothes their egos. Trans women complaining about vaginas is just not relevant to the topic at hand.


    • There is no such thing as “trans women.” They are men in dresses. Of course they are upset because they are mentally ill by definition. More than a few have violent tendencies, just like the men they are.

      I was pissed off that Charlie “Janet” Mock was allowed to speak given his attitude about prostitution and calling women “fish.”


      • True because they pretty much sound like entitled, misogynistic men.

      • Siobhan Says:

        40+ speakers at the DC march, and we wasted time on Janet Mock, another male narcissist who has turned his fascination with himself into a lucrative business. There was another M2T speaker, Raquel Willis, but at least he actually does something for his cause. I was feeling that there was too much pandering to the trans versus discussion of actual female-focused issues. I was also disappointed that, with some pretty amazing speakers in that lineup, several media outlets chose to highlight Mock along with 2 or 3 other actual worthwhile female speakers.

        Also, Mock’s deal is all about “sex workers’ movements,” which usually prioritize protecting johns and pimps while they exploit women and children. The national “platform” had something about sex workers movements taken out and replaced with a statement about protecting the sexually exploited, but, at Mock’s insistence, the original language was restored.

  3. Widdershins Says:

    It be a question in the title, so, the answer be, no.


  4. These deranged dudes really give themselves away for the sexist assholes they are. They can go to hell.

  5. Artemis Jade Says:

    I guess the trans movement found out that certain terf assumptions are held by the masses of women.

    • southwest88 Says:

      Vast majority of people (both men and women) hold “terf” views in that we know that men are not women and women are not men.

    • fmnst Says:

      Beautifully (and humorously) put, Artemis Jade.

    • Charlotte Says:

      Of course the vast majority of women understand they are women because they can gestate. Thats why the trans folk HATE older women, only girls can get duped into thinking their anatomy isnt central to their oppression- they havent faced pregnancy yet. But they will, and thats when many of them leave that nonsense behind. I see girls all the time who at 14-16 supported the t shit and then at 19 and 20 start changing their tunes..

  6. IronBatMaiden Says:

    I’ll probably get hate for this, but I couldn’t get behind the March. I understand some of my sisters wanted to march to stand with other women, but 1) most of these events aren’t even female-centric. 2) It’s funded partly by Soros. Corporate money is what got us in this mess in the first place! We don’t need it to get our corporate money in politics is like a cancerous tumor that needs to be removed. And these neoliberal morons are acting like a patient who doesn’t want that cancerous tumor to come out.

    • rebel13 Says:

      Right on sister.

      • IronBatMaiden Says:

        Thanks for understanding. Corporate money is poisoning the left and it’s keeping third wave feminism and all its Orwellian madness going. Like I said, it’s the cancerous tumor that needs to be removed.

    • southwest88 Says:

      Maybe we need to rethink this — if Soros or others appropriate the word “woman” for their marches and rallies, maybe we real women should show up in overwhelming numbers and appropriate those marches/rallies with our own issues.

      • IronBatMaiden Says:

        I say we hold a counter-counter protest and wake up our sisters. Tell them that they’re being fooled by Soros and the neoliberal corporates. They’re the ones who cheated the people out of Bernie and are not real progressives. They throw us bones on the social issues, but they’re addicted to corporate money.

    • Kathleen Lowrey Says:

      I felt the same way. A lot of it was — you’re mad *now*? Do you get how crappy things have been for a buffoonish nightmare like Donald Trump to have won the election in the first place?

      • thisismeandonlyme Says:

        It’s amazing that as soon as “sisters” do it for themselves, out come the Soros memes, especially if the target is a Republican. What is next, Bill Ayers?

        And yeah we are mad now, and we were mad then, but 3 million women around the world put together a once in a lifetime event. It was a love fest for WOMEN, and I wish you were there. The trans dudes are right, it was pussy centric as heck, grammas, children, adults, women, men, all colors, all sexual orientations, all ethnicities. Celebrating VAGINA OWNING WOMEN and fighting our degradation and anti-women laws. (I saw zero references to Trans.) Hopefully, this will at least show people the need to vote and stick together.

      • IronBatMaiden Says:

        Fair enough. I will give them credit for making it pussy oriented. But the fact that it was bankrolled by men still doesn’t sit right with me. Sorry. Call me a purist, but if we’re gonna get rid of our broken system, we have to take steps towards removing corporate money in politics.

        And Deb from Sane Progressive talked about this. She mentioned not just the hypocrisy of many of the people, but also the fact that if it was truly grassroots and not corporate funded, it would not get the kind of coverage that it did in the media. They would’ve been blacked out otherwise.

    • Dogtowner Says:

      I hadn’t yet read Meghan Murphy’s analysis of the march’s organization, but I checked out the fb page for the local march and found it emphasized trans, so decided to stay home. And when I turned on the local news coverage, the first person interviewed was a trans biological male.

      I think Murphy’s point is well-taken in that men were never mentioned as the oppressors, predators, batterers. And all this emphasis on the positive, as well as saying that when we suffer we shouldn’t retaliate (this was one of the principles). The march’s organizing principles sounded like training in being a good little girl. Guess that’s what Soros would be willing to fund.

      • IronBatMaiden Says:

        To me, I see it as taking women’s focus off of the corporate pigs controlling this sham of a March. And to keep us subservient to a male dominated party. Let’s face it. The democrat party is still very male dominated. And to me, having to rely on men in any shape or form is still slavery to any woman.

      • thisismeandonlyme Says:

        Apparently, you weren’t there and saw a 2 minute news byte. The conservative women trash this, the far progressive women trash this.

  7. Adrian Says:

    Oh no, they’re so triggered and can’t participate… well, don’t let the door hit ya on the way out!

  8. Kendall Says:

    Oh boohoo. Why can’t they realize that they make up less than 1% of the population? Why can’t they acknowledge the fact that even if we accept their ideology that the MAJORITY of women DO have vaginas and uteri? Sheesh.


  9. Well if there are really “TERFs” everywhere then all I can say is…awesome! Keep it up, sisters! 💪

  10. donesoverydone Says:

    Reblogged this on stop trans chauvinism.

  11. pollyhannah11 Says:

    This made my day. A very tiny number of MEN complaining about an actual tidal wave of WOMEN. Yes, go on, try and fight the ocean. ‘Cause you ain’t gonna win. But give it your best shot! Run out there with your thimble and get to work on emptying the ocean of actual resistance to trans ideology!

  12. GallusMag Says:

    “Ms. Blaire White” / Robbie Lacey

    • kesher Says:

      And look what he’s done to himself. That’s really sad. I also suspect his positions against transing kids and sexually coercing “cis” people will change soon enough given his transformation from a feminine gay man to an uncanny valley Barbie doll.


    • Isn’t Blaire White a MRA? It’s very telling that she is in agreement with these SJWs.

  13. hearthrising Says:

    These guys certainly feel entitled, but that’s not what upsets me. What bothers me about this kind of thing is the (real) women apologizing and promising to stop being “white feminists” and exclude all references to female anatomy so that their feminism can be “inclusive.” If the past is any predictor of the future, the next “women’s” march will be better policed so penises don’t get any sads.

    • Rosemary Says:

      yes. these self-absorbed men throw tantrums and spit out buzzwords, and the women wind up apologizing.

    • thisismeandonlyme Says:

      If you saw what I saw, that ain’t gonna happen. I’ve said this before on this site, the vast vast majority of women have no idea that transwomen think they are LITERALLY women. Our hope is to make sure the tiny subset of stupid don’t try to trip up woman energy, but I really think that ain’t gonna fly.

  14. dejavublonde Says:

    Aren’t trans under 1 percent of the population? So by having Janet Mock as a speaker, of amongst under 100 speakers, shouldn’t that technically meet their need for representation? Or are they admitting that they wanted the entire thing about them?

    Also, haven’t they been screeching that penises are vaginas for a while? Couldn’t they just pretend everything was about them based on that- like they do about everything else?

    • Oak and Ash Says:

      There have been repeated demands from them that feminism “center” transwomen–by which they seem to mean we should shut up about rape and reproductive rights and give all of our energy and attention to them.

      Male entitlement in drag.

      • dejavublonde Says:

        Then maybe they should stop being such fucking parasites and start their own stuff. Just a thought 😉 But, as we both know that would entail doing the work themselves and not having a bunch of women do it for them.

      • Oak and Ash Says:

        @dejavublonde–Did you just seriously suggest that men expend the effort to take care of themselves and build their own support networks? How radical!

    • Margie Says:

      Their platform listed 30 women historical figure whom the march was honoring. 3 out of the 30, or 10%, were “transwomen.” That’s 30X their prevalence in the population. And who were these 3 “transwomen” whom the March was honoring? 1) Sylvia Rivera, a heroin addict and prostitute with a lengthy criminal rap sheet, who lied about being at Stonewall. 2) “Miss Major” Griffin-Gracy, an ex-convict who has not only lied about being at Stonewall, but who has told an overtly homophobic fantasy tale about Stonewall in which he – alone – stood against the police while the “fags” (as he refers to gay men) looked on passively. 3) Marsha Johnson, a homeless psychotic who suffered from delusions and personality disorders. Johnson’s mental illness caused him to be violent at times, resulting in his being banned from gay bars throughout NYC’s Greenwich Village. Although Johnson was at Stonewall, trans activists grossly exaggerate his role in an attempt to steal and pervert LGB history for their own selfish ends. None of these grifters, liars and psychotics should have been honored by this March.

  15. annemarietobias Says:

    Ladies, I’m a transwoman… I am so sorry for this batshit!!! I have a Sister. I have a Mother… I’ve close girlfriends going all the way back to grade school and I turned 60 last August. Women have shaped every aspect of my life and I owe them more than I can possibly say.

    I have been a rabid advocate for women’s reproductive rights and affordable healthcare since I was a teen protesting women’s rights with my Sister… and anyone who thinks these things are not under the worst attack in 50 years needs to get their medication changed.

    The list of Supreme Court nominees has just been released. More than a couple have made it clear they are not only viciously opposed to Roe V Wade and a woman’s right to determine how her own body will be used, but they are also against contraception. Clearly in their minds, women are nothing more than baby making machines and any woman who doesn’t crank out future soldiers or daughters to crank out future soldiers in a traitor to Gawd and Country.

    These same people have made it clear, they are “All for” the recriminalization of the LGB and T communities and feel it should be a top priority to wipe queer people off the face of the planet. That is with whom Mr. Trump is looking to fill the missing seat of the Supreme Court. Worse, during his administration he may have the opportunity to fill as many as 3 more SCOTUS seat, starting with Ruth Bader Ginsbug (would that she could live forever.) I lack words… I am simply aghast…

    When a transwoman is forced to have a 10 inch ultrasound probe shoved into her neovagina after having been raped, so she can get an abortion… resulting from that rape… then and only then, will I be willing to listen to any of them piss and moan about pussy politics…

    Until then, to the trans community, kindly shut the fuck up!!! This has nothing to do with you!!!

    I am incensed by political zealots who refuse to see the larger picture. Please accept my apology.

    But I am blind with rage at this new Administration that clearly has declared war on women, on queer people, on the middle class, on honesty, legality and every decent thing for which this nation stands. I will die before I let men without conscience or souls, subjugate half the human race, raping them politically every bit as ruthlessly as anyone ever did in the physical act! This will not stand!!! I am sorry, and y’all would be surprised how many older transwomen are standing with you on this, not against you.

    These are dark times, we need to put our differences aside, we have bigger fish to fry… women are under attack like never before and President Pussy Grabber has declared war on everyone who sits to pee!!! I offer you my unbridled support.

      • annemarietobias Says:

        Hi Gallus, Hope you don’t mind me calling you Gallus.

        I see this link to 2013, I vomited up my opinion all over your site then, and am still embarrassed, that was rude and privileged bullshit. After, I simply wasn’t interested in being that person and didn’t comment again for a long time. You can count my subsequent comments on one hand… and though I’m a wordy fuck, I’ve tried hard to be thoughtful and respectful. Instead, I read your blog, and learned, and grew, and thought (wash and repeat.)

        I’ve learned a lot in 4 years and I’m not happy with a lot of what I’m seeing in the trans community, and I’m even unhappier with what’s happening to women and the growing demonization of feminism.

        Whatever my disagreements in the past, I hope my subsequent posts paint a picture of someone growing towards common cause, consensus, and respect. Most importantly, I don’t see how as a human being, I can profit at the detriment to half the human race… we are inherently in this together and we must benefit together or not at all.

      • Bev Jo Says:

        Just checked him out. Calling us “ladies” was not a good start.

        He seems like he wants to be an ally, but a beginning would be to stop identifying as a woman of any kind. Leave us the fuck alone.

        In response to his previous post, no, it’s not just the younger men who insist they are Lesbians who are the problem. The ones who’ve been at it for decades are at least as dangerous because, like him, they are often accepted by Lesbians into what used to be our last spaces. Unless we want to be an audience for these men, we have lost yet another of our spaces. I would have liked to have marched yesterday with OLOC, but all info locally came through the man who is in control of Bay Area OLOC. He’s the boss, as an old man posing as an Old Lesbian. The Lesbians I know seem scared to object. As one said to me, “I had no idea he’d move so quickly to be in charge.”

        So, Mr. annemarietobias, who has been in his “Lesbian” community for a long time is doing incalculable damage to Lesbians. What are the Old Lesbians to do if he is in all their spaces? Like many of us, give up what we had since there is no fighting the Lesbians who are worshipping this prick.

    • Mar Iguana Says:

      It is telling that men can feel free to openly use the words “to pass” without the least bit of shame. The m2t goal is to deceive, to successfully pass themselves off as what they are not, to see if they can get away with lying about what they actually are and demand everyone else go along with the masquerade, essentially saying “Who are you going to believe, me or your own lying eyes?”

      A ruse is a ruse is a ruse. (Apologies to Gertrude Stein.)


  16. I hope the call for pussy power shriveled up their estrogen poisoned self emasculated todgers.

    I’ll tolerate kids being self absorbed because they’re wired that way. Anyone exercising adult responsibility needs to grow the fuck up and realise not everything is about them.

    Most of these jokers seem to take frocking up and putting on lipstick as presenting an opportunity to start acting like toddlers.

    My feminism is female focused. And anyone who ever had a penis doesn’t qualify. Cause they’re men. As hard as it is for the typical trans male to recognize that.

  17. Medi Says:

    It seems that these men don’t realize all the pussie stuff was making fun of Trump’s actual video recorded comments about women. This little detail seems to have gone over their heads. Just too disgusting to read after awhile, and can male to trans who come here stop calling us “ladies” the word is women! Male to trans sort of miss this crucial point of women and the feminist and women’s marches.

    • Oak and Ash Says:

      Funny, isn’t it, that they call the women fighting back transphobic but not Trump for making the original comment?
      In fact, I’ve never noticed them calling men cissexist for talking about women’s genitalia in a pornographic way, even while they attack women who talk about female reproductive anatomy.

      Calling out women but not men–must be an oversight on their part, right? I’m sure it has nothing to do with misogyny.

      • againstvaw Says:

        More likely to be cowardice. They haven’t got the guts to pick a fight with other men. They bully women by whinging about women hurting their feelings.

        They don’t mind not being alpha men but they’re sure they’re entitled to be alpha women. Their place in the hierarchy has to be above women always.

      • Oak and Ash Says:

        @againstvaw–You’re absolutely right, I forgot to mention cowardice along with misogyny.

  18. Free From Sex Pozzies Says:

    I was really happy to see that most women still have no idea why “uterus” is seen as a slur…there’s hope yet!
    I also pray this wakes more women up to reality: there is a group of virulent misogynist MTTs that are after nothing less than total colonization and domination. They won’t be satisfied with anything less than complete erasure of women, and ownership of our spaces and resources.
    Consider:
    -The march was totally inclusive.
    -Trans were invited to participate in every way, and seen as sisters by organizers.
    -A black MTT was a key speaker (even though he promotes teen prostitution and uses slurs against women.)
    -Another black MTT (that admitted to raping a FTT in order to impregnate her) was also on stage. (With a feminist icon even!)
    -Trans focused organizations got top spots to highlight their issues.
    -Sister marches also made great efforts to include and promote MTT, over women. (Example: here, a MTT that by his own admission “has been a woman only 53 weeks!” was given half of a cover story on “women’s rights”. In a town full of feminist activists with decades of working for women.)

    BUT HERE ARE THE MTTs, STILL ANGRY. HOW DARE WOMEN TALK ABOUT THREATS TO THEIR RIGHTS, and LIVES, USING THE PROPER NAMES FOR OUR BODY PARTS!

    You can also see how they are using the term “white feminism” as a way to discredit anything they don’t like, and color the whole effort as racist.
    Nice touch.

    I also wonder how many fawning apology posts will be written by lib fems, crying about their hidden “cis-sexism” and begging for these guys forgiveness? Anyone wanna take bets on it?

    • Charlotte Says:

      After all the inhuman shit i have seen spew from the mouthes of men in dresses i have no doubt they will continue to feign offense and make a fit about ANYTHING women related because at the root of all their nonsense is intense women hate and envy. I have seen dozens upon dozens of these males fanatsize about harvesting our organs and killing us off. I have seen them on their gross forums fantasize about killing their own sisters and replacing them. I have seen them talk of culling the majority of women and only keeping a few in a warehouse breeding facility.

      There is a reason so many serial killers wear womens panties or skin us alive and make themselves lady suits they beat off in. These people are DEEPLY disturbed, ranging from sociopaths and narcisissts to full blown homocidal maniacs.

      I spent years defending these people, feeling sorry for them, apologizing for their behavior, trying to understand it, but im exhausted. I have YET to meet a fully sane one despite being in the lgbt since its inception in 1994. I cant lie to myself anymore for the sake of being tolerant and progressive- trans people are fucking insane, they need to leave our movement and be put in serious fucking therapy.

      • k.jane Says:

        I have seen the same things too and received threats over the internet for being a lesbian from these men. I’m sick and tired of them co-opting us and other women when they are some of the most misogynistic men around. Only when you pull the trans card can you get sympathy for saying you want to murder your sister and replace her…any other man saying that would be recognized as the violent creep that he is.

  19. Fred Says:

    A real honest question, what makes a woman if it’s not genetics or nurture? I really’d like to know.


  20. […] Image (along with many others equally nauseating) at GenderTrender. […]

  21. fmnst Says:

    Omg, this is too f’ing funny.

    I’m so glad the Women’s March pissed off MTTs and made them feel excluded! I personally did my part by carrying a sign that said, “No uterus, no opinion!“ on one side, and the word “radfems“ on the other, just to make it crystal clear. I waved my sign at MTTs and their LGBT groupies, enjoying that there was nothing they could do in the midst of a feminist crowd having a good time. Unlike the power they have to bully on the internet or in LGBT centers, I could chide them for a brief moment without there being anything they could do about it, and I enjoyed it. Little did I know how upsetting all the other references to female biology were to them. I hate the word “pussy” as Trump uses it, but now I want a pussy.hat to wear 365, knowing it’s “transphobic“: painfully reminding MTTs of the female genitalia they will never have for Donald Trump and his ilk to grab, and will never know what it feels like to be a woman, violated this way, because Trump doesn’t want to grab their penises or surgical vulvas. Poor them! How dare women think womOnhood is about our biology, instead of about gleefully embracing our innate domesticity and role as sex objects!

    GM, you have outdone yourself, finding and compiling all these Tweets, showing the world just how delusional, womYn-hating, narcissistic, controlling, and whiney MTTs are. And not just toward those of us nervily advocating for girls’ and womens’ right to privacy and safety in locker rooms, shelters, and prisons, but toward all girls and women who understand the relationship between our biology and our oppression as females.

    I am printing several copies of this post and carrying it with me, along with the post of the murder of the lesbian household in Oakland, and (if I can figure out how to print it out), a copy of the “TERF is a Slur“ site, to show to everyone I can.

    I will also be forwarding all three, far and wide, and hope other’s will do the same. If seeing this post, and the other two items doesn’t get women and men to hit peak trans, I don’t know what will.

    This post is pure gold. Thank you.

    • FeistyAmazon Says:

      Wasnt there another woman.murdered in Berkeley by a trans who refused to name his gender just a few weeks ago? So that would be 4 murders total.in the East Bay by two trans against 3 women and their offspring.

        Wow, I hadn’t heard about that, FeistyAmazon. If you or anyone find and can post any details about another murder, please post them here. the potential for the murder of the first lesbian household to be seen as license by other trans to kill women is something I think we need to take very seriously. That is why I am figuring out how I can start (as safely as possible) to raise consciousness in my community, amongst local politicians and people in general political organizations regarding the Oakland lesbians and their son who were murdered, and the many online threats by trans against rad fems.

      • Medi Says:

        Feisty Amazon do you have links to news stories about the other murders of lesbians in Oakland by trans? No LGBT org or major publication said boo about the interracial lesbian family murdered by a so called major “trans activist in Oakland.

  22. Oak and Ash Says:

    The comments by these guys are appalling. Don’t they realize how stupid and narcissistic they sound? I mean, the whole point of “No vagina, no opinion” is that those who can’t get pregnant shouldn’t get to control the right to abortion and contraception for those who can. Even by trans logic, that slogan should be acceptable since it applies to all “people” who can be impregnated.

    And I can’t for the life of me figure out what’s wrong with “Vaginas brought you into the world.” Where do they think we all came from? I mean, is the reality of childbirth considered so triggering to the trans crowd that we’re now supposed to pretend babies are brought by storks in bad wigs and falsies? (Or are they upset about the erasure of those born by c-section? It’s so hard to tell with these people.)

    Really, what do they expect us to rally around? Lipstick?

    • Mark F. Says:

      So, anti-abortion women should get to control it? Hate to say it, but there are lots of them. Not a lot of difference of opinion on abortion between the sexes according to most polling.

      • Anne Bonne Says:

        Anti-abortion women are still women. It’s not “you don’t get an opinion because I disagree with yours,” it’s “men cannot be pregnant yet are – via overwhelmingly male legislatures and judiciaries in the US and across the world – deciding when, where, why, and how women can legally obtain abortions, as well as setting the terms of the debate via their stranglehold on society and culture.” And if there *isn’t* a huge difference of opinion between the sexes on this issue, that doesn’t exactly help the case that men’s voices are essential or even relevant at all to the issue of protecting the bodily autonomy of the half of the species they are presently oppressing.

    • fmnst Says:

      Oak and Ash, agreed. They want to be us, but because they can’t be, they want to redefine who *we* are to include only those things *they* determine are what make them and us fit in the same category: the nonsensical belief that female is an “inner feeling”/a “felt experience.”

      I have been confused for a long time regarding what people mean by gender “dysphoria,” and what causes trans to feel “triggered.” I have come to the impression that these mostly refer to anything that reminds trans of their biological sex, and thus interferes with their fantasy (sexual or otherwise) of being the opposite sex: hence, causing them to feel “dysphoria”/confusion, and why they demand and fight so intensely to have absolutely no one, and nothing, anywhere, ever remind them of their biological sex. That’s why everyone has to use their preferred pronouns, welcome them into the bathroom, shelter, and prison of their choice, and have to have sex with them if it will confirm their belief that they are the opposite sex (i.e. requiring/bullying lesbians to sleep with MTTs.)

  23. genderskeptics Says:

    I think this might wake people up to the reality of trans activism. They really are fighting a losing battle, the vast majority of people will never totally divorce biological sex from what they consider to be a man or woman. Also, did anyone notice cherno biko spoke at the march and met Gloria steinem? Niko has admitted to rape with the intention of forcible impregnation.

  24. Bev Jo Says:

    First, it’s still a shock that these entitled men and their women worshippers are so smug in assuming most women agree with their female-hating. We are all to be on our knees, genuflecting before them.

    The men posing as women don’t even seem to be aware that the “pussies” Trump recommends grabbing are not “vaginas” (since that would mean shoving something in them, not grabbing through clothing) but are vulvas. Of course they don’t know or care about the difference or about how girls’ and women’s bodies are invaded and assaulted by men, BECAUSE “TRANSWOMEN” ARE MEN.

    I keep asking, how many of these men posing as women have raped and sexually assaulted women? I’m guessing a lot have.

    No other oppressed people are so bullied and stalked for daring to talk about what defines them and makes them a target for oppression other than are women. These men and their collaborators have no shame at all.

    Nothing will ever be enough for them. Even if they were the only ones allowed in the media to portray women in films and television, even if women were forbidden by law to call ourselves “women,” etc. Even if they could rape and kill us all. Nothing would satisfy them. Ever.

    So women need to learn to say no to them, on every level. If they are afraid to, they really need to think about why.

    • Charlotte Says:

      Yep, narcissists are endless voids of destruction that are never satiated. I learned this from my cross dressing ex who could NEVER get enough attention, enough money, enough praise, enough sympathy, enough sex, enough adoration, enough violence and mayhem and drama. His thirst was inhuman, literally, he resembled a demon more than a person. ALL the fellow CDs and transvestities in his circle were EXACTLY the same in chewing people up and spitting them out.

      Every wife had a similar story of being abused, having their money stolen, their kids terrorized, I have yet to see a single life long happy relationship between a trans and their partner. EVERY one of them has been a horror show and ive been socializing about this since the 90s when i got first my clue about what my ex partner really was.

  25. rheapdx1 Says:

    One has tp wonder how msny of those who were praising the likes of Mock, Biko et al understand they are codoning the rather large criminal class that exists on the t ranls?

    Also…how many understand the inclusion and welcoming of the creep contingent, is part of why there are now those attempts to gut and destroy institutions and laws meant to protect eomen in the first place?

    If one wants to lnow why the new administration feels they can decimate the rights of women, ss well as groups that have been maligned…the above questions, as well as the social media postings are a good place to start.

    • rheapdx1 Says:

      (Sorry about the typos on this…had a few problems with my contacts at the time)

      As a dovetail to this…and this shows the collateral damage of the snowflake invasion, go to the whitehouse.gov site. One will see that the LGBT pages and sources on same are gone. This is with other issues as well, but one can come to a fair conclusion, that this is connected to the usurping done by said same flakes.


  26. Kind of a lurker to the site but had to comment. I’m just really over MtT “logic” of trying to get women to deny or downplay the very same biological and physiological features that they themselves rely upon to create the body that matches their feelings. The blind, boisterous hypocrisy is astounding to me. And frankly, any woman who falls for it needs her head examined.


  27. Reblogged this on A Thinkers Delight and commented:
    Because women should deny or downplay the very same biological and physiological realities that MtT (male to trans) people rely upon to alter their body to match their feelings. Makes sense (sarcasm). So, I wonder. Do they have an issue with MtT spokespersons like Jenner, Mock, or Cox getting fake boobs and other surgeries to change their physical appearance to feel more like a woman? Or do they reserve their temper tantrums for when women focus on female anatomy? So only MtT people are allowed to focus on the female anatomy (via surgery and ass backwards renaming and other petty covetous behavior). But women can’t make a sign about vaginas? And this is progress how?
    Something tells me it’s the MtT folks who are too broke (or too young) to get the full on enchilada surgery who are the most pissed.
    (Note- I have my own opinions on the Women’s March but that’s beyond the scope of this post).

    I know I’m a Homosexual Transsexual, but I used science to prove why I am, but I feel that instead of trying to claim I was born female, because think I understand what I look(ed) like.

    Throughout HIStory men as a class of people with penises have exploited women as a class of people with the reproductive ability to carry their genes, their sons, in order to pass on their land and capital as part if hetero-patriachy. Women with that biological capability are STILL today living with that oppression. Those of us who have survived violence directed at us…at our bodies and souls… because of our assumed ability to reproduce know that men like Trump are focused on our vaginas as a way of accessing our ovaries and wombs. This isn’t about sex for pleasure this is about son’s and daughters to carry on the great male lineage. We are not being transphobic, we are just telling our own experience and fighting against our oppression. ….We are not doing this to oppress you.


  31. BOO HOO HOO men in dresses upset that REAL WOMEN are marching for WOMEN’S rights. Upset that it isn’t ALL ABOUT MEN.

    BTW, I don’t have a uterus anymore. I had a hysterectomy in 2009. But I am a REAL WOMAN.

    • fmnst Says:

      silverapplequeen I don’t have a uterus anymore, either. I, too, had a hysterectomy – in 2009, incidentally. But anyone who was born female and ever had a uterus (or was born female, but without a uterus due to a biological anomaly) is female in my book, hence the message on the sign I carried.

      • Charlotte Says:

        They are female in all the science text books too, they are just moved to the category of “post fertile woman”. I had a tubal ligation in 2005. But that surgery in NO way undid my previous 30 years living in a female body and having three pregnancies.

  32. worriedmom Says:

    I went to a more local march (it still attracted 10,000 people!) and I have to say, people seemed entirely unself-conscious and not defensive at all about references to female anatomy, reproductive rights, etc. In the crowd there were a few people who might be termed “genderqueer,” but by and large it seemed mostly biological women and their male allies. There were many humorous signs that were also quite frank about biology and from what I could tell, people appreciated them.

    It may be that now the recriminations will begin from a small group of vociferous, prolific people who are irked at not being “centered” in this endeavor, and I am starting to see posts on my Facebook page (from women) to this effect. It may also be that, if there ever is a “next” Women’s March, there will be an outcry to scrub all references to biology. I hope not. My guess would be, though, based on what I saw at my local march, that most folks are almost completely detached from the argument that it is “triggered” or “sexist” to refer to biology!

    • hearthrising Says:

      Blaire White sometimes has useful things to say. He is very critical of trans activists and sometimes his take downs of their politics are the best, or at least the most amusing. But he’s not a feminist ally, and he seems to have a lot in common with gay male anti-feminists, his repulsion toward mention of vaginas noted above being an example.

      • Carrie-Anne Says:

        I’ve liked some of his videos, since he does criticize things like transing children and the claim that “misgendering” is literal violence. A lot of the others, though, are pure right-wing, anti-feminist rhetoric. His Tweets quoted above also make it obvious he’s a man. Of course he thinks women have all important rights intact in the West, since he’s never been a woman and thus has never had to deal with something like denied access to birth control or abortion, being ignored in a class discussion in favor of boys, or feeling nervous walking in a parking lot at night with a group of strange men nearby.


  36. Gallus, this is a great post, and thanks for all work in compiling all these tweets and posts from whiney transwomen.

    No matter what women do and say to be “inclusive”, it’s never enough. They will always demand more, and if they aren’t the center of attention, then they will go out of their way to make sure they are the center of attention.

    This is from the Women’s March website. It’s not enough to kiss their ass and say, “We firmly declare that LGBTQIA Rights are Human Rights and that it is our obligation to uplift, expand and protect the rights of our gay, lesbian, bi, queer, trans or gender non-conforming brothers, sisters and siblings”. No, talking about female anatomy is triggering to them, and “cissexist”. Our vaginas and ovaries are “cissexist” to them. It’s “transmisogynistic” to talk about vaginas.

    Not good enough…..

    “LGBTQIA RIGHTS

    We firmly declare that LGBTQIA Rights are Human Rights and that it is our obligation to uplift, expand and protect the rights of our gay, lesbian, bi, queer, trans or gender non-conforming brothers, sisters and siblings. We must have the power to control our bodies and be free from gender norms, expectations and stereotypes.”

    https://www.womensmarch.com/principles/

    Since nothing that women do is ever good enough, maybe it’s time to say screw them. Women are under no obligation to uplift and expand transgender rights. Transgender rights and women’s rights are two different things. They are not one and the same. Besides, women should know by now that no matter what women do or say, it’s never enough. So, screw them. We all know that every LGBT organization in the US is trans/queer run, and women have never had real power in any of these organizations. If it were up to me, I wouldn’t even mention LGBTQ rights because we know that means transgender rights at the expense of women and girls. “Gender identity” laws do, in fact, harm women and girls. I would specifically say lesbian and bisexual rights and leave it at that without the rest of the alphabet soup. As to queer, it can mean anything including heterosexual males with diaper fetishes.

    Damn them for going after Gloria Steinem. They need to leave all second wave feminists alone. These are our grandmothers who gave us Title IX that transgender activists have all but destroyed.

    All the usual TERF bashing is par for the course. I’m sure what Gallus posted is just skimming the surface. Any woman who doesn’t fawn over them and go out of her way to pamper and coddle their fragile inflated egos must be a TERF.

    WTF is with the article “How the Women’s March’s “genital-based” feminism isolated the transgender community”. WTF is “genital-based feminism” and “accidental TERFs”? Some people really go off the deep end and drown in the Trans Kool Aid. They think tossing out magical words like “intersectional feminism” makes their bullshit sound more progressive and edgy. Saying “genital based feminism” is an insult to the female sex. “Genital-based” feminism would include rape, pregnancy, birth control, menstruation, abortion, breast feeding, HIV/STD prevention, female genital mutilation, etc. Women are expected to separate our very bodies from feminism. Female flesh and blood and female reproductive organs are now “cissexist” and “transmisogynistic” . It’s taboo to even speak about ovaries and vaginas, much less write the words on a protest poster. How utterly insane and offensive. How horrid it is for women to say something that might make them an “accidental TERF”. Yes, this asinine article said, “accidental TERF”. You can’t make this shit up, and the shit gets crazier all the time. So, there are “accidental TERFs” and regular TERFs now? This is taking TERF bashing to an entirely different level. I wonder if TERF death threats apply to both “accidental TERFs” and regular TERFs.

    https://terfisaslur.com/

    “Pussy Hats” send “trans exclusionary” messages so says one transwoman.

    “Lejeck, a trans woman from Modesto, CA, said the hats signaled to her that there would be other trans-exclusionary messages at the women’s marches.

    She expected her local march to have its fair share of trans-exclusionary radical feminists, known as TERFs. As Lejeck described it, there are two categories of TERFS: One is the accidental TERF — “the ones who have signs that equate womanhood with having a vagina,” she said. The other category, Lejeck explained, includes feminists who argue trans women are actually men in disguise trying to infiltrate their spaces.
    Lejeck decided she would avoid both kinds of TERFs by abstaining from Modesto’s women’s march altogether; she had grocery shopping to do anyway.”

    https://mic.com/articles/166273/how-the-women-s-march-s-genital-based-feminism-isolated-the-transgender-community#.07f4CWAwc

    (*this article really said both kinds of TERFs, and TERF death threats are well documented)

    https://terfisaslur.com/

    Another trans identified male states,

    ”Since legally McDaniel’s sex is still male, she worried that if she were to be arrested she would be placed in a men’s jail, a concern she said always lingers at the back of her mind. (*why would he worry about being arrested) McDaniel said she’d planned on attending the march despite these fears — until she saw that people were using it as an excuse to invoke what she called “genital-based” womanhood.”

    https://mic.com/articles/166273/how-the-women-s-march-s-genital-based-feminism-isolated-the-transgender-community#.07f4CWAwc

    If he is worried about being arrested, then I don’t want him at a women’s march. Maybe we all should be glad that the “genital based” womanhood scared him off. We know transwomen (biological males) love women, especially lesbians. Last November a transwoman was arrested for slaughtering a lesbian couple and their adopted son, arson for trying to burn down their house to destroy evidence, and possessing metal knuckles. He was placed in a women’s jail, and it’s a safe bet he will get taxpayer funded hormones.

    https://gendertrender.wordpress.com/2016/11/16/transgender-activist-dana-rivers-arrested-for-brutal-murder-of-lesbian-couple-and-their-son/

    Again, thanks Gallus for digging all this up. It doesn’t matter what it is because they will bitch, moan, cry “cissexist”, “transmisogyny”, mean TERFs hate us, all while telling TERFs to die, until women usually cave in to their demands. It. Is. Never. Enough. Ever.

  37. Carrie-Anne Says:

    It was so depressing and infuriating to read all those Tweets! In addition to being misogynistic and threatening, these men are so pathetic, whiny, and self-centered. It’s also sad how there are so many libfem handmaidens who’d nod along with some of these Tweets and rush to comfort these angry men, putting men and their feelings above our own sex yet again. On the other hand, I’ve heard from a lot of women who’ve reached peak trans and discovered radical feminism after seeing evidence like this.


  38. @Free From Sex Pozzies

    Consider:
    -The march was totally inclusive. (*it doesn’t matter if it’s totally inclusive because they will always bitch about something)
    -Trans were invited to participate in every way, and seen as sisters by organizers.
    -A black MTT was a key speaker (even though he promotes teen prostitution and uses slurs against women.)

    Are we talking about Janet Mock and his version of the “underground railroad”? This is some good information on Janet Mock and his “underground railroad of resources” into child prostitution. Under age sex work was an “underground railroad of resources”. Harriet Tubman would be rolling over in her grave.

    https://gendertrender.wordpress.com/2014/02/02/janet-mock-on-the-underground-railroad-into-child-prostitution-for-transgender-youth-and-why-he-thinks-thats-a-good-thing/

    Below Janet Mock comments on his underground railroad. In the video that is linked on this gendertrender post, Mock admits that he turned to prostitution when he was younger not because he was starving. He says he had minimum wage jobs, but they weren’t enough to pay for all his plastic surgery and clothes that he wanted at the time. The real underground railroad lead people out of bondage and slavery. Mock’s underground railroad gave him enough money for pretty clothes and plastic surgery. He wanted the quick money, and he says in the video, “quick money made me do things more quickly”. I guess it would.

    “A sense of community, sisterhood, resiliency, resources, strength. It was like our underground railroad of resources to navigate a system not built for us. And for me that’s what sex work gave me.” -Janet Mock

    Pimps are a whole underground railroad of resources so says Mock.

    Mock like a lot of transwomen also uses the offensive term “fish” to describe females.

    -Another black MTT (that admitted to raping a FTT in order to impregnate her) was also on stage. (With a feminist icon even!)

    I wonder if Steinem knew she was onstage with a man who admits to non-consensual unprotected sex with a black FTM. FTMs are still female, and Binko was obsessed with impregnating this FTM. Binko wanted to create a “holy trinity complete with a black trans man and our black non-binary baby” whatever that means. The black FTM thought otherwise and felt used. Binko admits that he wasn’t the least bit interested in safe sex, wasn’t concerned about how to support the child after it was born, and admits outright that the sex was not consensual. Binko also refused to pay for the victim’s PEP [Post Exposure Prophylaxis] prescription to prevent HIV infection in the victim. In one of his articles that gendertrender links, Binko admits to having a lot of unprotected sex with males including being sexually assaulted himself, and then has unprotected sex with a FTM so that he could impregnate her. He sure wasn’t thinking about the black FTM. If I were the FTM, I would be worried about HIV too. Binko changed what he had admitted to in earlier articles, but gendertrender nailed him. It’s all there for anyone to read.

    https://gendertrender.wordpress.com/2016/07/25/transwoman-activist-cherno-biko-confesses-to-raping-a-transman/

    -Trans focused organizations got top spots to highlight their issues.
    -Sister marches also made great efforts to include and promote MTT, over women. (Example: here, a MTT that by his own
    admission “has been a woman only 53 weeks!” was given half of a cover story on “women’s rights”. In a town full of feminist activists with decades of working for women.)

    Has been a “woman” for 53 weeks, and gets to explain women’s rights to us.


  39. I was in DC and it was so fantastic seeing THOUSANDS of women celebrating their bodies proudly. Of five friends, we saw only two trans between us, besides the two on stage. Maybe a few of them will finally realize that there are a hell of a lot of women out here and they can’t bully all of us!


  40. So Samudzi concedes that patriarchal men are obsessed with controlling female bodies, yet still thinks feminism is not intrinsically concerned with the female body and male exploitation of the sexual and reproductive functions that differentiate it from the male body. Samudzi is one of the worst of these gasbags, and that’s saying a lot.

    Like the rest of pomoqueer Twitter she uses “bodies” every other sentence, yet thinks female bodies and by extension the abuse and shame men direct at them somehow aren’t a chief issue in the movement formed by and for class:female. No, then we’re lost in the ether of unqualifiable feelings, because to do otherwise would make some males sad. It’s good to reclaim slurs like “queer”, but God forbid women should do the same with representations of the exact body parts men objectify and shame in order to maintain control of the female sex caste.

    What is it about “non-males”, then, that drives men to abuse us? The feeling of being a woman? Enjoying the feel of makeup on one’s face, per Parker Molloy? How can the female body be so insignificant when MTFs are obsessed with passing as “fish”, as they call us?

    It says everything that MTFs won’t even try to find a place in feminism without seeking to erase the significance of everything that they do not and cannot share with actual girls and women. Samudzi uses big words but can’t see where MTF control freaks parallel the men they claim to oppose. She’s fine with throwing class:female under the bus because she wants to be paid by Pomolib Inc. for the drivel she posts all day on Twitter.

  41. Miss Vagina Says:

    If you were really about supporting women you would not take away from this age old movement and back women up, or stay out of it instead of making up a fake war like women are fighting against you.
    Natural real women have vaginas, were born with reproductive systems/organs, have menstration cycles, this makes you angry?? And because women are proud of their bodies and the biological gifts God gave them makes you mad? Why all the hate?

    Stop trying to take over the identity of women and think of a gender and catagory of your own so you can stop looking to everybody else for validation.

    Real natural born women have their own battles and it’s not with you, but you want to make it about you for attention and/or because you don’t have a real vagina, reproductive system or can’t have periods. Wow that’s sick.

    If you were really about supporting women you would not take away from this age old movement and back your sisters up, instead of making up a fake war like women are fighting against you.
    Why try to suppress natural born women because their rights were attacked and they fought back? Are still fighting back.

    Seems like some trans people want to erase the natural born women identity and take over.

    Out in society some of you act like your competing with women to the death instead of being genually nice and getting along. If your not with the #womansmarch movement it’s because you weren’t for women’s rights to begin with- only lbgt rights. (lbgt rights/movements ARE NOT THE ONLY THAT MATTER.) And honestly there weren’t many transgender people at the march supporting women to begin with, now afterward they want to bash women- ( as usual ) like it’s our fault.

    Deep inside or on the surface many of you reallt HATE natural born women and you should not.Now your the oppressor of women? We didn’t take any rights from you, let us march, protest in peace without you trying to catfight. #AintNobodtGotTimeForThat – To cat fight with you in the middle of a movement. This is one reason why sharing a gender label won’t work. The problem is 2 different kinds of genders can not automatically share a gender. Come up with your own label, your own name, your own seperate title exclusively for you so there are no mixups, problems, crying about it from now on.

    *When people say women- everybody will know it’s really about women. When people say transmen/transpeople/transgender and whatever other label is established just for you, everyone will know it’s only referring to you.

    All throughout this protest I’ve heard women and men say it’s about equality for ALL – The rights of all people no matter the color-ethnicity-race-nationality, gender, disability, sexual orientation. However, some of you overlook this because your bitter about natural born women celebrating their vaginas, reproductive systems, menstration cycles- Why does that irritate you??? We were born this way, we have the right to celebrste that. Sounds familiar? Yes, so you think your rights matter over anyone elses, it doesn’t.

  42. NYCAlison Says:

    Like some of the women upthread, I can’t fully embrace this March because of its corporate ties and the navel-gazing, forcible SJW hijacking of a cause that was initially centered on the liberation of the sex class (i.e. establishing that women and girls are humans, not objects to be forcibly conscripted into childbirth chattel slavery at State gunpoint). However, it is immensely satisfying to see how many women and girls — and in some cases, male allies, too — are unafraid to express their demands in the context of female biology, which is the root of our oppression, no matter how “triggered” the trans-trenders claim to be.

    Seems a healthy number of folks have heard the demands from Transgender, Inc. and decided they don’t give a sh1t and won’t let that stop them from marching for female civil/human rights. And more and more have learned that when a trans-trender whines, “you triggered meeeee,” it is simply code for “I require you to acknowledge that I’m in a self-indulgent snit because I am not in the spotlight at all times. I am justified in threatening you with violent rhetoric or worse because you have failed to spend 150% of your time performing the emotional labor I require for validation. And I demand your immediate contrition and servile attention to my narcissism.”

    “I understand the impulse to use your vagina as your your protest image, especially in the face of a president-elect who has boasted about grabbing vaginas, and an administration seemingly hell-bent on stripping women of their reproductive rights — but the fact of the matter is that when you do so, you subtly let trans women know that their place isn’t in your protest. You’re letting trans men know that you don’t see their gender, because your idea of gender is seemingly based exclusively on genitalia.

    Wearing pussyhats, or chanting about vaginas, lays out a hierarchy based on genitals that is exclusionary and painful.

    This rhetoric also ignores the fact that trans people are oppressed by their genitals, just as cis women are.
    From birth, trans people are coerced, sometimes violently, into living within society’s expectations based on the shape of the flesh between their legs. This coercion often comes with official government backing, such as the four states that don’t allow gender changes on birth certificates, and the many many places that don’t require insurance companies to cover transition care.

    Wearing pussyhats, or chanting about vaginas, lays out a hierarchy based on genitals that is exclusionary and painful.

    It’s not my place to invalidate anyone’s language, but I am constantly aware of my own incomplete womanhood between my legs. I try to pretend that it doesn’t make me different from the other women around me, but at the end of the day, I know I’m not like the rest. I see it when men reject my transness, I see it when I can’t quite always smooth the front of my pencil skirt, and I see it every time I pull on a pair of panties.”

      HAHAHAHAHAHALOLOLROFLOMFG :::wipes tears from eyes::: that is hilarious.

      Yeah, I’ll bet he’s aware of what’s between his legs, especially when made up and decked out. Poor guy. Somebody hand him a tissue.

        I’ve reached peak trans once again. My Goddess! Does their narcissism know no bounds?

    • Oak and Ash Says:

      So let me get this straight–we’re oppressing him by EXISTING in our female bodies?

      I read the rest of the article, in which he talks about the woman he meets who gives him a hat, because she thinks he looks cold, and then marches with him. Like so many other men, he thinks the only good women are those who lay aside their own concerns regarding sexual assault and reproductive rights to take care of him and make him feel validated. No male socialization there!

      As for his sob story about the cost of SRS, how many women have had to pay more than they could reasonably afford for reproductive health care, not to mention for years of sanitary products? And plenty of people have to spend more than the cost of SRS for necessary dental work.

      Also, his only problem with pencil skirts is that he can’t get the front smooth enough. When I was eighteen I tried one on, and my problem was that I couldn’t walk with my full stride, so I knew I wouldn’t be able to run away or kick to defend myself if someone attacked me. He doesn’t mention that concern at all or seem to understand that looking good in a pencil skirt isn’t a basic human right.


    • The whining never ends with these guys. Though if he was so dysphoric why choose clothes that show off his raging boner?
      Of course that’s rhetorical. We all know why.

      And the LITERALLY a pussy or a roof over my head… Reach much? You aren’t homeless, dude, but it’s pretty disturbing you work in banking and think $15,000 is a good down payment. Bah, maybe condos don’t cost what they do here (upward of 300,000 CAD new) but at any rate, deciding what to spend a large chunk of money on (how about your daughters education? Just kidding! Daughters are for virtue signalling intentions only) really isn’t dire hardship. Using the genie to reach there, buddy.

        He went to the Portland, ME march, which means real estate in his area is fairly cheap, but not that cheap. It does not surprise me that he thinks a 10 percent down payment is reasonable. That’s what all the banks think. They’re just selling the mortgages to someone else anyway.

      “I see it when I can’t quite always smooth the front of my pencil skirt, and I see it every time I pull on a pair of panties.”

      Well, that’s a gross image I didn’t need. I assume that’s what he was going for, because plenty of pussy-possessing women wear boxers and jeans. “Feel bad for me when I make myself uncomfortable by my choice of clothing” …No.

      • GallusMag Says:

        “Panties” *puke. This is a grown fucking man. Does any actual woman refer to underwear as “panties”? Only at Victoria’s Secret.

      • Oak and Ash Says:

        But Gallus Mag, how can a gender neutral term like underwear validate his womanhood?


      • I haven’t seen the term pantie used outside of porn created by men. But I’ve always assumed it was a North American term because I’ve never encountered it here in Australia.
        It makes my skin crawl though. It’s somehow pedophillic and sexist at the same time.

      • Carrie-Anne Says:

        The term “panties” has always squicked me out! It’s so gross, sleazy, porny, and childish. We don’t call men’s underwear “boxies”! It’s pathetic how Wikipedia insists on using that word for the title of its article on women’s underwear. I rather like the British term “knickers,” though I’m also a huge fan of women wearing boxers. They’re a lot more comfortable and practical.

  44. Margie Says:

    I really cannot understand how so many of these low-level trans activists and pro-trans feminists on Twitter have so many followers. I am not talking about celebrities or “superstar” activists. I am talking about the kind of people we see in the tweets above, people that nobody has ever heard of. These people often have between 1 and 5 thousand followers. Obviously, that’s nothing compared to a celebrity, but it’s still bizarre that thousands of people would follow a complete nobody.

    • michelle Says:

      They LOVE their echo chambers…and they blindly click the ‘who to follow’ suggestions.

    • Noanodyne Says:

      It’s very easy to get fake followers, likes, and retweets on Twitter. You can do it by paying for a service and there are other ways as well. There are millions of fake accounts (basically just automated bots that randomly “like” and retweet others’ tweets); fortunately there are also ways to tell which are which. If you suspect that someone has too many followers to make sense, go to their followers list and start looking at what each follower’s timeline looks like. This is not to say that some of those transholes don’t have a populous echo chamber, disgustingly, some do, but I’ve caught quite a few inflating both their follower numbers and their “likes” and retweets by way of bots. It also doesn’t take much time to create a Twitter account and slavishly follow all the transholes you can find. They follow back and voila, inflated numbers that way, too. In either case, it makes perfect sense that these pathetic narcissists need to appear far more popular and important than they are.

  45. Lizzie Says:

    Is this a way of expressing their distaste at all the pictures/models of genitalia at the march?

    In which case, I share the sentiment* but wonder why in the hell they couldn’t just say so without all the anti-woman sentiment? Why do they have to bring men’s precious little feelings into it?

    Aren’t their own reactions valid enough to be listened to? You can tell people to have a more grown up march without denying basic biology.

    *Personally, I think you can make your point without pointing to your genitals constantly, and that it puts off neutrals.

  46. Oak and Ash Says:

    We live in a racist society that actually does oppress people of color in many ways, but I never hear African-Americans whining that sunscreen displays at drugstores and warnings about the risk of skin cancer count as signs of white supremacy in and of themselves. Imagine if we were to encourage everyone who sunburns to wear a hat with a wide brim to protect their faces, and Twitter filled with complaints that wide-brimmed hats were a sign of white privilege, since not everyone has pale skin. Ridiculous, right? Among all the ways dark-skinned people are, in fact, oppressed, I’m going to go out on a limb and suggest that hats and sunscreen aren’t high up on the list.

    So, assuming such a thing as cissexism or transphobia actually existed and women could perpetrate it, why would women’s acknowledgment of their biological reality and the consequences that flow from it constitute oppression of those without female reproductive systems? When (transwo)men demand that we not even allude to the way our bodies function, they remind me of all the other men–from frat boys and patriarchal dinosaurs to romantic poets and drag queens–who not only prefer some fairy tale of womanhood to its messy reality but insist women take responsibility for hiding any facts that might interfere with their fantasy.

    • Prozac Says:

      According to that article, author Megan Burbank thinks both vaginas and ovaries are secondary sex characteristics. Just a perfect example of post-modernist Orwellian bullshit and ignorance based in fantasy. Your comment on the article is awesome, too.

    • GallusMag Says:

      Incredible homophobia from “cis straight” activist Megan Burbank @meganireneb. Disgusting and proof that low IQ=homophobia. Keep sucking that cock Megan!

      • GallusMag Says:

        Dear Megan Burbank:

        “..if the only thing bringing us together is what’s in our pants, then we’re not really feminists to begin with.”

        Women are oppressed by males on the basis of our biological sex, not on the basis of whether we “identify with” the social role imposed on us without our consent by the male supremacist culture. Female human beings can’t “identify” our way out of the sex-based oppression which Feminism organizes to redress.

        Your ovaries, uterus, vagina, vulva, are not a “secondary sex characteristic” but components of your reproductive system. Secondary sex characteristics are things such as height differences between the sexes and degree of facial hair. Google it.

        Adult human females (traditionally known as women) are controlled by social sex roles (gender) in order to ritualize behaviors of subordination (femininity) allowing non-gestating humans (males) to establish control over reproductive lineage (patriarchy). Feminism 101.

        Google “Rape”, “Female Genital Mutilation”, “Child Brides”, “Forced Impregnation”, “Reproductive Rights”, etc. Any glancing look at the Women’s Liberation Movement of the last 200 years will illuminate the bizarre and laughable errors in your post, which is incoherent and anti-feminist.

  48. LibertarianWench Says:

    I don’t understand why the trans just don’t go for the age-old tried and true method of classifying oneself as a third sex instead of trying to force their way into women’s spaces. It sure seems like it would save a lot of drama.

    Third sex is perfectly respectable and worth fighting for in terms of rights. I’m not trans, but if I were I would be third sex.

    As long as big government stays out of this mess, which they won’t. That’s the most upsetting part. Government forcing people to accept the beliefs of those they disagree with and obey them.

    • Marm Says:

      Declaring oneself a third sex (ie assuming an identity as simply trans v.s. transWOMAN) does not include a)validation from well meaning but uninformed women or b) give the satisfaction of coercively pushing women around in a very male socialized fashion.

      This is why there are no trans only shelters, DV services, music festivals, etc. To make their own would not bring the satisfaction from imposing their will and stealing space and resources from women who worked extremely hard to create these things, for their own safety and community. The intrusion and violation of female only spaces, resources brings immense PLEASURE yo these creeps.

      • LibertarianWench Says:

        And the government is right there to enforce their intrusion in the name of civil rights. Now women have no civil rights because anyone can claim to be a woman and assert the civil rights set aside by the government for women specifically.

        And this is why I believe in liberty, not civil rights. When the government grants you rights they can as easily take them away just as they are doing to women and girls right now supplanting women’s rights with transwomen rights. Liberty is a natural right that no government grants to you–it’s yours for the taking. Liberty is ownership of your body and your property. Liberty means that a business owner who doesn’t want men in the women’s room, or would like to create a third sex bathroom just for trans can do so without repercussions from the government. A transwoman can open his/her own business and call it a lesbian cafe featuring transwomen only if they want to. That’s real freedom. Government created ‘rights’ mean you are at the whim of ‘democracy’ (mob rule).

        So it’s better that businesses force women to shower with men in supposedly women-only facilities? Are you aware of the degree to which corporate America is cheerleading the erosion of our rights? Did you see the way the “free market” punished North Carolina for HB2? And what of Planet Fitness that chose the penis rights of a creepy fetishist over real women despite Michigan not including “gender identity” as a protected class? If you think the penis havers in executive suites have your interests at heart, you are insane.

      • WTF Is This Nonsense? Says:

        Marm, yeah, they already had a third restroom option at most Target stores, but it wasn’t about “a place to pee”, it’s about forcing everyone else to participate in their fantasy, forcing others to validate it.

        Same with Michfest. Why not have a Transfest? Because that would make too much sense, and pass up an opportunity to crap on other people.

    • Bev Jo Says:

      The men demanding access to Lesbians and other women do not want separate space since their claim to be in danger is a con. Anything less than getting all Lesbians to at least say they agree to be fucked by these men won’t be enough. Probably nothing is.

      Not to mention “trans” are not a “third sex.” That further erases intersex people. “Trans: are primarily het men who are autogynphilic and perv on Lesbians, with a few self-hating gay men, and then a few self-hating women who want access to male privilege, and for some, sexual access to gay men.

      • k.jane Says:

        Very true. Trans is not intersex and intersex people are yet another group of people who have been co-opted and appropriated for their agenda. Intersex orgs oppose genital surgery on children who cannot possibly consent to it, whereas trans orgs want to perform medical experiments on gender non-conforming children.

        I don’t think anything is enough for sociopath men. And yes, they don’t want their own safe spaces because they aren’t in danger (except maybe from each other). It’s all about validation and bullying everyone into playing make-believe with them.

    • silverside Says:

      Over 10 years ago–when I still bothered which such things–I got into an on-line blog “discussion” with some men’s rights people who were complaining about DV shelters being limited to women (realize that the MtTs are simply following in the footsteps of the MRAs, who were busy trying to close down shelters in the 90s and early 2000s). I decided to make a calculated bet. I have over 25 years of grant writing experience, including housing, homeless shelters, DV shelters, etc. I volunteered my services PRO BONO (a service that could have been worth thousands) to help them write a HUD grant to start a shelter for men made homeless from DV. All they had to do was help me document the need in the area they came from. Well, not surprisingly, they hemmed and hawed and finally dropped it–just as I knew they would, though lots of women contacted me in horror. I told them to relax. These guys are way too lazy and undisciplined to do their own projects, and the more sane of them know there is no evidence to back up their complaints. It’s all just a calculated effort to crush women and eliminate the few concessions they have wrung out of patriarchy.

  49. LibertarianWench Says:

    Gallas, I am on your side here. I am pro-choice and pro-woman. I think what I had to say was perfectly on topic and you just disagree with it. I am in perfect alliance with radical lesbians and feminists. But my approach to alliance with you is different than what you want. I can’t help that. I think the government is going to fail you as it has always failed all women. Look at photos of women from Iran in the 60s compared to today. You don’t think your own government can strip you of the rights they gave you? They already are. You can’t even have any bathroom privacy anymore.

    “Marks: Why I didn’t attend the Women’s March
    Logan Marks — January 26, 2017 at 6:00 am

    0
    Approximately 4 million people all over the world took to the streets on Saturday, marching in protest of President Trump’s inauguration. When I first heard about the women’s marches, I was excited and intrigued. I’ve tried to be politically active whenever the opportunity arises, and this was definitely an opportunity. However, my feelings began to change when I started hearing about the details.

    The first thing I had qualms with was the trend called “pussy hats.” While the hats themselves are cute — hot pink with little cat ears — the sentiment behind them makes me uncomfortable. By calling the hats pussy hats, the protestors were centering the protests on cisgender (those who identify with their assigned sex at birth) women.

    Unfortunately, this is not the only way the marches were transphobic. Phrases such as “pussy power” and “the future is female” grossly ignore and exclude those without vaginas who identify as women. Some people might say that these actions are an effort to demystify the vagina, create body positivity and emphasize female reproductive health. However, displays of female genitalia and slogans that involve it are not necessary to do this. It is possible to promote female reproductive health and women in general without these phrases, and without emphasizing female genitalia as a caveat for being a woman.

    These trends resemble what is called Trans-Exclusionary Radical Feminism, a movement that essentially states that “real women” are those who have a vagina, and center womanhood on having a vagina and uterus. This movement obviously excludes transgender women who have not had transitional surgery, because they don’t have a uterus or vagina. As stated by Julie S. J. Pelham in a widely-circulating Facebook post, “If you’re horrified by a powerful man grabbing women by the pussy, think about what he’d do if he didn’t find a pussy there, and work against the forces behind why he phrased it that way in the first place.” This is a testament to transmisogyny and violence against transgender women.”

    • worriedmom Says:

      Logan, I hate to break it to you, but when you say “[t]his movement obviously excludes transgender women who have not had transitional surgery, because they don’t have a uterus or vagina,” you’re kind of overlooking the fact that transitional surgery is NEVER going to give a guy a uterus. Arguably not a vagina either…

  55. The “Trans Dyke” banner really upsets me. What the hell does “Trans Dykes” have to do with women’s rights? These are creepy heterosexual males not dykes, and not lesbians.

    The “Cotton Ceiling” coined by a trans porn star is offensive to lesbians and women everywhere. According to this theory, lesbians are bigots for not having sex with transwomen (males) even if he still has his penis.

    To: Women’s March 2017

    * Males are not female. Adult females are called women.

    * Trans Dykes” my ass. It is an insult to the entire female sex. Males are not dykes, and they are not lesbians. These are heterosexual males with fetishes. Males claiming to be women and lesbians have been making death threats directed towards women and lesbians for years.

    * Males who colonize and co-opt female and lesbian identity are responsible for the attack on Michigna Women’s Music Festiva.

    * One male “lesbian” is currently on trial in Oakland, California for slaughtering a lesbian couple and their adopted son, arson for trying to burn down their house, and possessing metal knuckles


  56. Reblogged this on blackfeministhaven and commented:
    In the light of the Women’s March, there was a few issues that many women felt was overlooked. One of them had to do with intersectionality of race while the other had to do with leaving certain women out. According to one of GenderTrender’s recent posts, many trans women complained on Twitter that the Women’s March overlooked them and their plight. Though I do believe that their concerns are valid, I believe that what they are saying is actually erasing the whole point of the Women’s March.

    The Women’s March was created for women of all races to protest Donald Trump’s administration’s attack on women’s reproductive rights. Many women feared that, since he promised his supporters in his campaign to defund Planned Parenthood as an adage to repeal Obamacare, he will lower their access to birth control, mammograms, and other essentials needed to sustain women’s health. Unfortunately, their fears has been confirmed when Trump signed an legislation that ended women’s access to free birth control. Though women can still find ways to access birth control, there are some women that fear losing coverage of birth control under their insurance plan. Women not being protected in the workforce or being harassed in public are other issues that affect women. Such issues are the culprit that sparked the advocacy of the Women’s March to be implemented around the country.

    On the other hand, trans women do go through some of the issues that women go through with transphobia on top of it all . But their biologically genetic makeup is still male and they are socialized as males before transitioning into women. Trans women can’t possibly understand everything that natal born women go through because of genetic and biological differences between the two. Part of this is why they couldn’t fanthom why women were discussing their vaginas because most of them don’t know how it is like to have vaginas or have their vaginas controlled by the government. I believe that these tweets by trans women just shows how some of them miss the point of the Women’s March. It is unfortunate how many trans women claim to be women but express the same entitled attitudes about women’s anatomy and having access to women’s spaces that misogynistic men have.

    Though I do believe that the Women’s March is a step in the right direction regarding addressing women’s reproductive rights, I do believe that many trans women should understand the repercussions of having a vagina. Especially having a vagina in a society that seeks to control it for it’s own benefit.

    • Oak and Ash Says:

      What a load of self-pitying drivel in that article! I’m fed up with hearing about the supposed “underrepresentation” of trans women, when they were overrepresented among the speakers at the march relative to their percentage of the population.

      Studies have found that when women make up more than a third of a group or speak more than a third of the time, people in the group or observing it tend to think that “the women are taking over.” Apparently the opposite is true of those born male–they think they’re underrepresented no matter how generously they’re included statistically.

      If the trans folk want to be central to a demonstration, why don’t they stage a “Million Trans March” or something to highlight the issues they consider most important to them? And they can wear whatever hats they want (although I’m partial to the one GM designed earlier in the thread).

    The Advocate always gets it wrong. They put the pope on the cover as man of the year, when Edie Windsor was the heroine of the lesbian / gay marriage victory at the Supreme Court. Of course Windsor, whose courage opened the way for all gay men and all lesbians to get married wanted the pope. It’s always been about gay men, I don’t think I ever see much lesbian anything in that glossy piece worthless info. No surprise that they would completely not get the women’s march either.

I was really gutted that I couldn’t go on the London march because of severei migraine, but must confess I was a bit concerned about the gatecrashing trannies I knew I’d encounter there . Now, I’m sort of glad I didn’t, because I think I my anger would have been directed at the wrong target.

As usual, all about him. I told him, just like those women, you might not get what you want in your lifetime. He got the big sads.

      Now it is boo-hoo time?? Gee…that is so sad. NOT. There would be more empathy and understanding for the cause if, said same cause was less about their stereotypical views of women, but more about respect. Of course…this would require those marchers, et al to……MATURE.

    “I mentioned the signs above, and yes, there were some great signs out there. I laughed along with some of the most snarky ones. But I’m also well aware of signs that stated things like “No Uterus = No Opinion,” which would mean that my own two cents as a trans woman – in an event that includes LGBTQ rights within its mission – is clearly devalued. That sign was not alone, and joined others that may have strayed a bit off message.

    By the same token, some in the trans community also felt uncomfortable with the pussy hats, which served as a clear and very visible part of the event. The design, a simple, knitted beanie sporting cat ears, fashioned out of bright pink yarn, was a cheeky way to show solidarity in the face of President Donald Trump’s now-infamous statements about sexual assault.

    As I mentioned above, millions of people took part in these events, and some had never participated in such a march before. Many first timers are not going to be exactly “on message.” That’s not to say that there weren’t some there who I’m sure did harbor ill will toward transgender people, but I suspect these were a minority in many cases.

    At any rate, I would think of this as a time to teach, and a place to explain why a given sign may offend or exclude. It would also be a time and a place to consider one’s own feelings about a given sign or symbol. Yes, it’s probably impossible to go too deep into any topic in a massive throng of people marching with purpose, and I think that is why so many are exploring their feelings post-event.

    I do want people to consider one important thing about this march, and the way that – setting aside signs and hats – those of us who are trans and those who are fighting for woman-specific issues can and should work together.

    For one – and I cannot stress this enough – trans women are women. The things that affect women can affect all women. We can all face discrimination based on our gender, no matter how we arrived at it. By the same token, issues of access to women’s health services can affect a broad swath of transgender people, including many who identify as non-binary or trans masculine. There is room for all of us to discuss similar needs and find common ground here.

    More so, as many smarter than I have pointed out, both the trans movement and the abortion rights battle are issues focused on body autonomy. We should have the right to augment our bodies as we see fit as transgender people, as well as having the right to terminate an unwanted pregnancy as one desires.”
