What is a “true transsexual”?
Sex roles, or “gender” assigns the cultural behaviors and traits of supremacy and domination to males, and assigns the behavior and traits of inferiority and subjugation to females. Gender is a political hierarchy, a social caste system of males on the top, ruling, and females on the bottom, serving them. Those of us who’ve been educated in such matters have been informed by the transgender movement that “transgender” is an umbrella term for anyone whose social behavior or whose personality traits deviate from the stereotypes imposed on all of us based on our reproductive sex for the purpose of codifying and perpetuating male supremacy over the bodies of females.
Except for gay people, whose deviation from sex-stereotypical social norms is due to sexual orientation (unless we are also non-conforming in ways indirectly related to sexuality: butch dykes or gay queens, or perform in drag shows, and then maybe…)
And except for crossdressers, who are men dedicated to the fetish hobby of performing their own idealized, objectified version of the female sex-stereotype, an activity which sexually arouses them as men. Unless such men are socially persecuted for their hobby, in which case they are transgender. And unless such men form an attachment to their ritualized “female other” persona, and decide to expand the practice into a full-time lifestyle, like Bruce Jenner, who wanted to become “her”, in which case they are transgender.
And except for women who passed as male in order to escape the female role, to avoid male rape and violence, persecution for homosexuality or to engage in activities and careers forbidden to women. Unless they are now dead, in which case they posthumously are transgender.
Men who believe their personalities are aligned with any characteristics they assign via sexism to women based on our reproductive biology are transgender, even if they sport full beards, cock and balls, and answer to “Bubba”. Donna Perry is transgender, even though he brutally murdered five women as a sexual sociopath and serial killer on the path to discovering his true authentic self.
Genderqueers are women who don’t want to be thought of as female because the female sex-role is oppressive. Their pronouns are “anything but female” but that doesn’t stop them from being raped and assaulted by men. They are transgender.
Coy Mathis and Jazz Jennings are boys whose parents with Munchausen By Proxy pimp them out to the media as pediatric transgender Honey-boo-boos for fame and profit. They are transgender.
Chaz Bono is Cher’s self-hating lesbian daughter who complained that the Ellen Degeneres Show was “too gay” and “moving too fast for society” before she began injecting testosterone. She is transgender.
Morgan Page, Julia Serano, Dana Beyer are autogynephiles that are very upset that lesbian people exist because they believe female homosexuality discriminates against males by rejecting males as sexual partners. They are transgender.
So it seems that “transgender” is an umbrella term for anyone whose social behavior or whose personality traits deviate from the stereotypes imposed on all of us based on our reproductive sex for the purpose of upholding a caste system which benefits males and disadvantages females, but only if such a person supports these sex stereotypes and believes that sex roles are innate and define sexual reproduction instead of actual reproductive biology. Or something.
Of course, females who transgender can’t “identify” their way out of the subordinate caste and the requisite male rape and male violence which enforces it, unless their biology is completely disguised and their origins unknown. Female “Transmen” aren’t exactly fighting for their right to be housed in men’s prisons when they get arrested. They aren’t demanding “male” abortion services and pap smears at the local urology clinic. The transgender community itself is notoriously sex-segregated and misogynist towards females who transgender because there really is no benefit to the males (“Transwomen”) even attempting to undo their socialization as the dominant and superior members of the sex caste. That’s about as likely to occur as men deciding to stop raping us because we ask them to. What’s in it for them?
Transgender is a Men’s Rights Movement. It seeks to expand both the dominance of males and the subjugation of females, and all with a tidy profit made by what one commenter here called the “Gender Industrial Complex”. Transgender also acts as a release valve to siphon off and neutralize female rebellion against the sex caste system of gender by allowing women to access some superficial privileges of maleness (such as avoiding a measure of public surveillance by men on the street, etc) in exchange for pledging fealty to the hierarchical premise of the caste system and voluntarily submitting oneself to monitoring by the medical authorities.
So. Now that we know what “transgender” means: what is a “True Transsexual”? I’ve been hearing so much about the “truly transsexual” these days, and from the most unlikely of places! It seems a cohort of heterosexual women and men calling themselves “gender critical” are now forwarding the idea of the “true” vs. “false” transsexual. These folks have taken to defanging the work of Radical Feminists and Lesbian Feminists by re-writing (or just downright plagiarizing) with a few significant changes, or perhaps “corrections” in their view: namely they remove the lesbian and women-centered analysis and instead center the concerns of their men friends who would like to transgender. The straight women and “transwomen” (who are “gender critical” male femulators in the same way that Rachel Dolezal is a white “race-critical transblack”) seem to be trying to create a liberal feminist version of gender critique the sole purpose of which is to center men who impersonate women and to replicate the heterosexual dynamic.
“The “radical” in radical feminism means getting to the root of the problem. The root of the problem is gender, meaning the idea of male (masculine/dominant) and female (feminine/subordinate) personalities,” says one of these women.
Huh? The tribal legacy of violent male control over the means of human reproduction (Females!) is not the root? Wow. Learn something new every day. The root of female oppression is not violent sex-based exploitation but rooted in the barriers to full expression of male personalities. Huh. Well, we’ve nearly got this all sorted, then. Male liberation now! The sooner the better! This whole global history thing really was a big misunderstanding! Ritualized cultural sex-caste traditions are the problem, not the violent control of those bodies capable of creating offspring, which is at the root of such traditions.
This is Trans-feminism. This is Mans-feminism. The author goes on to lecture women that we should “offer safety” in the male-occupied land of women to male “refugees” from the ruling caste –(weary is the head that holds the crown!)- men who want to call themselves Meredith, take estrogen, wear yoga pants and try to pass themselves off as “transwomen”. Like we don’t have enough problems, we should perform as unpaid femulator academies for the male lesbians.
These heterosexual transfeminist women propagating a rootless mansfeminism stripped of sex-based analysis so that they can better serve the needs of their TBF* (*Transwoman Best Friends- the straight woman’s “gay best friend” is like, so five minutes ago, apparently) would be laughable if they weren’t so damn harmful to the women and girls who actually have a dog in the transgender race, so to speak. It’s no coincidence that all of the new radlib transfeminists parsing out the “true transsexuals” from the nasty bad false ones are straight. It’s not a coincidence that they de-lesbian their analysis. The fact that they also dis-include “Transmen” (who are actual females! hello?) from their MansFeminist Tranifestos is no coincidence.
I’m going to tell you now what a “True Transsexual” really is.
This is what enters my mind every. single. time. one of these straight women makes the distinction between the “True” transsexual with “Real Sex Dysphoria!” and the “False” bad kind. I don’t think about their TranswomanBestFriend and whatever shit he does to himself. I really don’t care what men do to themselves.

Preoperative planning and titanium implant fixation for “boneanchored penile epithesis”.
The principle of osseointegration is accepted and used in reconstructive surgery: different
types of epithesis (ear, nose, etc.) can be fixed via titanium screws to the recipient bone.
We present the first series of patients where titanium implants have been implanted onto the
pubic bones of femaletomale (FTM) transsexual patients, in order to attach a “bone anchored” penile epithesis.
Following patients’ selection based on patients’ wishes, pubic bones of five FTM transsexuals
were analysed with CTscan.
CTscan images were uploaded on Surgiguide 5.0 software and a virtual planning was made,
simulating various implant (“fixtures” and “abutments”) sizes and locations.
A surgical plan composed of a two separate stages was developed.
To the date of the submission of this abstract, six FTM transsexuals underwent stage1 surgery, and 3 underwent stage2 surgery.
During the stage1 surgery, two titanium implants (“fixtures”) were implanted onto the pubic boneof each patient,
lateral to the pubic symphisis. Four weeks postop, a new CT scan was performed to analyze osteointegration and the final implant position.
During the stage2 surgery, the soft tissue of the pubic have been reduced; abutments have been inserted and passed through the skin.
After few weeks, a penile epithesis is connected via a “retention” system to the titanium implants.
Preoperative virtual planning is crucial for the selection of the appropriate implants size and the
anatomical location where to set the implants.
Both stage1 and stage2 surgeries occurred uneventfully in all patients.
Postoperative CT scan is demonstrating implant osteointegration in all 6 cases.
Functional results of the use of the epithesis will be provided as soon as available.
This experimental clinical study demonstrates that titanium osteointegration onto the pubic bone is feasible.
This new approach for penile reconstruction in FTM transsexuals constitutes another alternative for these patients.
Further technical development is needed to validate the stage2 surgery and the penile epithesis.
There are six women out there, somewhere in the world, please God bless them and keep them, with titanium rods screwed into their pelvic bones and expressed (sticking out through perpetually broken, lymph oozing skin) through their groin in the hopes that one day a dildo might after “further technical development” be affixed to the metal. Who knows what else these surgeons are doing to female “True Transsexuals” that isn’t being presented to the public at WPATH. I say a prayer for these women every time I think of them, and I think of them every single time I hear a “feminist” say the words “True Transsexual”. I hope you do now too. With a prayer.

A transwoman being described as a “disgruntled ex-patient” was arrested yesterday for the attempted murder by arson of Dr. Douglas Ousterhout, a long-time specialist in transgender facial feminization surgery. On Monday the suspect allegedly doused the front and back of the surgeon’s home with gasoline, then ignited it, after a reported “physical confrontation” earlier in the day. The doctor was home cooking dinner at the time and the fire was extinguished without injury. Dr. Ousterhout lives in the San Francisco landmark home used as the movie set for the Robin William’s crossdressing film “Mrs. Doubtfire”.
The suspect, Tyqwon Eugenen Welch, 25, was located by police on Wednesday and detained and booked on charges of attempted murder, arson, possession of an incendiary device, criminal threats, and trespassing. Police kept Ousterhout’s residence under police watch until the suspect was apprehended.
Transgender facial feminization is a small and notoriously acrimonious and competitive specialty. Physicians have been accused of running smear campaigns against one another, lawsuits have been filed, and disgruntled ex-patients have been arrested.
Ousterhout, 79, has reportedly announced, then retracted, his retirement at least twice in the last four years. He continues to practice.
Insurers struggle to justify the sex discrimination of legally mandated “transgender care” while surgical providers continue to decline
October 30, 2014
Less than 50 physicians worldwide are willing to provide transgender surgical “sex reassignment” or “sex change” procedures, and as the few existing practitioners retire, no one is replacing them. Modern cosmetic and reconstructive surgeons at large are opting not to do these procedures, even when they are state mandated and funded.
Now, insurers are struggling to fulfill state mandates covering transgender surgical procedures for men that are excluded for women based on sex discrimination. Transgender state medical mandates pushed by lobbyists insist that procedures such as breast implants and “face lifts” are medically necessary for men who wish to look more like women, while denying coverage for those same procedures to actual women. Transgender advocates have successfully lobbied for such government provided “care” on the grounds that without such procedures men may become depressed or abuse alcohol or other substances, and that such men have a state-protected right to avoid being mocked or socially ostracized for their appearance. Males must declare a “transgender identity” to receive coverage.
From the Boston Herald:
Four months after the state Division of Insurance put health plans on notice that denying medically necessary treatment to transgender people is prohibited sex discrimination, insurers are still grappling with what constitutes medical necessity, and patients are struggling to find doctors who’ll treat them.
“We were concerned people were having to go all over the country for this surgery,” Dr. Joel Rubenstein of Harvard Pilgrim Health Care said yesterday at a Division of Insurance informational session. “We’re hopeful somebody would step up to put together the surgical piece so it could all be in one place.”
On the other hand, he said, Harvard Pilgrim does not want to approve procedures such as facial feminization for transgender people if those procedures would be considered merely cosmetic for other people.
But Ruben Hopwood of Fenway Health said facial feminization is not about wanting a “cuter nose.” A transgender person’s appearance is more likely to be the difference between getting a job or not getting one, and walking down the street unafraid or being attacked, Hopwood said.
Getting the proper treatment also can save money that might otherwise be spent on treatment for alcohol or substance abuse or depression, said Pam Klein, a nurse at Boston Health Care for the Homeless.
