AMAB here, age 18. I have been on HRT for 5 or so months now. I want to take this time to let out a rant I’ve kept bottled inside for some months now (I haven’t talked extensively about my transition since it started months ago, and a lot changes.) The transition has been very systematic. Skins softens, breasts grow, the usual. I haven’t yet crossed the line of looking in the mirror and feeling blissfully at ease. I yearn for that still. But something else that feels entirely unchanged is my envy of other women. My lust for the beauty they withhold. My hatred for not being what they are. These emotions manifest and concatenate in often dangerous ways. For instance, earlier I watched that Ryan Reynolds movie called Voices. In it, Reynolds, cute as ever, is a schizophrenic factory worker that works with a number of beautiful women. Throughout the movie he is convinced by his cat and dog to murder the women and keep their heads in his fridge. One of the women, whom Reynolds’ character has a brief romance with before killing her too, is played by Anna Kendrick. This is where the movie stirred up and provoked the triple threat of emotions I mentioned above.

I love Anna Kendrick, in every sense of the word. She’s beautiful, an excellent singer, a lovely actress, as perfect as they come. But she is an excellent example of a target for my emotions. I have a strong lust for her because of her beauty and sexy voice. I have an incredible envy over her because of how fucking white her teeth are, how sexy her singing voice is, how perfect her hair is, how beautiful she looked in the dress that Reynolds killed her in. I also have a despicable hatred for her for all the same reasons.

This is a lethal mixture I have for many many women. Celebrities, girls I know personally, girls I’ve never even heard of that I see in pictures. My last relationship was consumed by my desire to be my girlfriend. I even sometimes, with every ounce of my being, hold a strong resentment towards innocent little girls simply because they are what I never got to be: a little girl. I can’t stand being around them sometimes because I almost break down crying to a five-year-old, which is something they shouldn’t have to deal with and is frankly pathetic.

With that being said, I loved watching Anna Kendrick being killed in Voices. I re-watched her break her neck and lay in bed in her lovely dress helplessly at least five times. That’s where my fantasies center around. I want girls like her to be hurt. Badly. I often subdue bouts of painful dysphoria with more powerful thoughts of hurting the girl who caused it. I feel guilty for feeling this way and these desires date back a few years. Psychology has taught me that this potentially originates from the overwhelming need to control a female body, the delusion that harming a beautiful women at my own hands feeds my desperation to be ultimately near to and have control over her body.

The truth is that I would do anything to be Anna Kendrick, but I fear that, in leu of that ever being a possibility, I would just kill her if ever given the chance, and sob inconsolably over her perfection after the fact.

Needless to say, I have a lot of powerful emotions that I have suppressed my entire life.

These dreadful fantasies are not just directed at celebrities and are not only provoked by watching someone getting killed beforehand. I was on a school trip a couple months ago to the capital of my state. It was for my [nameless] organization for officers-only, which I am one of, and was actually state-wide conference with over 2000 attendants. It was a blast, but my teacher did the usual thing of gendering the rooms. He made each of us – only about 8 officers – room with a partner of the same sex, genders in different hallways. It’s bad enough that I had to be separated from the girls which I internally felt included with, but the ones from my school on the trip were fucking beautiful, and I was so jealous that they were able to be in the girls hallway, no questions asked. One of them, who we’ll call Greg, is someone I’ve been kinda friends with through this organization for about a year. She is the epitome of everything I wish I was. She is so outrageously beautiful and funny and popular and talented. My experience over this entire trip was somewhat tainted by my overwhelming grief of being fixated on her for the whole three days.

For the next few days after, I found myself in my counselor’s office for hours because I was unable to function because my mind was fixated on a desire to cause harm to this girl. I hated her so much and I wanted to press lightly on her trachea and look into her beautiful eyes listening as her final breaths cry for mercy. I didn’t want to actually hurt her, I usually don’t. I always imagine girls’ deaths to be gentle, so as to not disturb their natural beauty. I don’t want to harm them, I just want their life to end. Normally in these fantasies I pinch their nose shut and cover their mouth so I can watch them fade so elegantly at my own gentle hands. It’s not about making them not beautiful anymore. It’s about taking the life from them. I want to reduce their beauty to just a corpse because their life isn’t fair. I want to caress them in my arms and carefully tighten a rope around their neck so they can look at me when I take their soul. I want to feel their final breaths. I want to release the life from their body so I can have the shell. The beautiful shell.

Needless to say, my counselor, whom is otherwise very supportive of me, was concerned to say the least and almost had to call 911.

I texted Greg initially telling her how much of a bitch I think she is, but when I got the surprising response talking about how sorry she is that I feel that way and that she tries not to be since she’s been bullied her whole life, I quickly retracted the statement. I told her that I am trans and that I only said that out of spiteful envy over her beauty. She responded kindly.

The worst thoughts are those of hurting little girls. When I ride the elementary bus home from my school, I am bombarded by fun little kids that all love me because I’m often the only high-schooler, and rather funny. I almost always find myself on these trips home to be fixated on a young girl on the bus. I make everyone laugh while holding back the tears of looking at the little girls who will grow up to be strong, beautiful women. I hate them because I never got to be a little girl and I hate that they have what I never could, their princess room and their cute clothes and their girly little personalities. Sometimes I want to hurt them too. Why did God make them little girls but never me? I miss the childhood I never had.

Thanks for listening to my rant. I hate myself.

In 2014, I asked San Francisco Health Commissioner (2012-present) Cecilia C. Chung for data on HIV transmission rates among transmen who identify as gay men. Cecilia Chung is regarded by many as the national authority on HIV/AIDS in the transgender community. Chung responded to my inquiry by passive-aggressively sending me a link to a list of all the demographic studies hosted by the San Francisco Department of Public Health website under ‘HIV /AIDS Programs and Research’.

By reviewing these studies I discovered that since 1996 the San Francisco Department of Public Health had been reclassifying all Transmen (Females who identify as male) diagnosed with HIV as Transwomen (Males who identify as female) for statistical purposes. When I pointed this out to Chung he refused to respond. Only after the exchange was re-tweeted by famous actor and comedian Roseanne Barr did Chung admit this to be so:

“You are correct. We have recently changed the method to capture the wide spectrum of gender identity and sex assigned at birth,” Chung finally replied.

2014

However, an updated review of department materials indicates that this change was never implemented. Chung’s department continued to reclassify transmen as transwomen in their HIV statistics. Their most recent (2016) HIV Epidemiology Annual Report states [Page 97, Note on Transgender Status]:

In September 1996, SFDPH began noting transgender status when this information is contained in the medical record. Transgender individuals are listed as either male-to-female or female-to-male. The majority of transgender HIV cases are male-to-female (trans female). Due to the small number of trans male cases and potential small population size, their data are included with trans female cases to protect confidentiality.

https://www.sfdph.org/dph/files/reports/RptsHIVAIDS/Annual-Report-2016-20170831.pdf

2016

Note how this reclassification of transmale HIV data was cited as being for their own good, nonsensically arguing that total erasure of AFAB transgender HIV data ‘protected their confidentiality’. Female HIV transmission rates among women who do not identify as transgender was not reclassified as male, nor was any heightened risk of potential confidentiality breech cited for non-transgender females. Only HIV data pertaining to transmen (women who identify as male) was deemed a risk to patient confidentiality. Only HIV data pertaining to transmen was deliberately erased.

More than one in ten transgender people living with HIV are transmen (identified as female at birth) reports a study released today in the American Journal of Public Health.

 

Characteristics of HIV-Positive Transgender Men Receiving Medical Care: United States, 2009–2014

Ansley Lemons MPH, Linda Beer PhD, Teresa Finlayson PhD, MPH, Donna Hubbard McCree PhD, MPH, RPh, Daniel Lentine MPH, and R. Luke Shouse MD, MPH, for the Medical Monitoring Project

http://ajph.aphapublications.org/doi/10.2105/AJPH.2017.304153

The study looked at data starting in 2009 and ending in 2014, the same year I asked Cecilia Chung to stop reclassifying transmen as transwomen in official statistics.

AIDS Map reports:

“HIV-positive transgender men in the United States have significant unmet social and healthcare needs, according to a study published in Research and Practice. Approximately half were living in poverty and only 60% had sustained viral suppression.

“Many transgender men receiving HIV medical care in the United States face socioeconomic challenges and suboptimal health outcomes,” write the authors. “Although these transgender men had access to HIV medical care, many experienced poor health outcomes and unmet needs.”

Transgender people experience poorer health outcomes compared to cisgendered individuals (people whose current gender identity is the same as the one with which they were born).

Little is known about characteristics and outcomes of HIV-positive transgender men (designated female at birth). A team of investigators therefore analysed the records of patients who received HIV care in the United States between 2009 and 2014. Their aim was to characterise the sociodemographic and clinical characteristics of these patients.

Overall, transgender men constituted 0.16% of all adults but 11% of transgender adults receiving HIV care in the United States. The majority (59%) were aged between 18 to 49 years and 40% identified as gay or bisexual. Although 42% had completed high school, almost half (47%) had an income below the national poverty level. A third were uninsured or relied on a Ryan White programme for their health care. Over two-thirds (69%) had an unmet support need and a quarter were currently living with depression.

Most (53%) were sexually active.

The majority (57%) had been living with HIV for ten or more years; a quarter had a history of an AIDS diagnosis. The vast majority (93%) had ever taken antiretrovirals; 88% were on HIV therapy and 83% were fully adherent to their treatment. Last viral load measurement was undetectable in 69% and 57% had a current CD4 cell count above 500 cells/mm3. Two-thirds of patients had a viral load test every six months but only 40% had received sexual health or HIV prevention counselling from a healthcare professional.

More than 1 in 10 transgender persons receiving HIV care were transgender men. HIV-positive transgender men receiving medical care in the United States constitute a small group with socioeconomic challenges, unmet needs for supportive services, and poor healthcomes,” conclude the authors. “To decrease disparities and achieve health equity among HIV-positive men, HIV care models could incorporate transgender-sensitive health care and mental health services and health insurance inclusive of sex reassignment procedures and physical sex-related care.”

#BoycottTOPSHOP

November 9, 2017

Two men who “identify as female” discuss the merits of eliminating public spaces for women under Gender Identity doctrine.

These are apparently the “transwomen” for whom Topshop eliminated women’s dressing rooms:

Alok Vaid-Menon and Travis Alabanza, Topshop transgender activists

 

Keep repeating this.

 

Trans women are women. Say that over and over. And over.

What is a woman? A woman is anyone who identifies as a woman. What are they identifying “as”? That is different for each person. Woman is defined in a unique way by every self-identified woman, as long as those definitions do not include the reproductive biology of sexual dimorphism, which is a social construct. Women are not female, because some people classified as female are men, who are male.

But Trans women are female and Trans men are male. Because women are female, and men are male. Female and male are not biological categories denoting reproductive specificity because there are no such stable categories. And if there were, it would be wrong to name them, because identifying any category of humans with a term based on a physical characteristic they all share (tall, diabetic, brunette) erases their humanity and reduces them to nothing but that characteristic. Also categorizing people based on sex is salacious and untoward because you’re referring to their genitals. Which you shouldn’t do. How rude! What is wrong with you? Female and male have a unique meaning for everyone who identifies as such, one that is unrelated to lowly and salacious mammalian sexual categories, which don’t exist outside our wrongful attempt to create them. There are no does and bucks. Only deer. Some with front holes, others with rape sticks.

 

 

Trans women are women. Trans women are female. Trans men are men. Trans men are male. Repeat that a few times.

Woman is defined in a unique way by every person who identifies as such, except never in relation to reproductive biology, and never in relation to coercively imposed sex stereotypical behaviors such as elaborate grooming regimes, impractical clothing, and shoes which handicap the wearer. These are optional expressions of womanhood, not a defining feature of women, which is a category of person with no universally coherent definition.

Woman is also never defined by “femininity”, a cluster of trained social behaviors that are enforced upon uterus-havers from birth based on reproductive biology: compulsory emotional labor, showing teeth, feigned incompetence, deference to males.  This conduct is quite literally compelled under force of  violence upon uterus-having people from birth, in order to ritualize their perpetual submission to the penis-havers and maintain the social order of male supremacy over females. But for people with penises they may be optional self-expressions of what woman, which has no universal or objective traits, is.

 

 

To recap: Trans Women Are Women! Trans Women Are Female! Woman has no particular characteristic or definition beyond identification with an unspecified state of being, which is also called female, which is also lacking in defined meaning. Sex stereotypes enforced on people who gestate offspring in order to ritualize their subordination to the people who cannot, are optional forms of expression of this state.

There is only one form of womanhood that exists as a clearly defined class of people with shared embodiment and experience, and unless you are a fucking TERF you know for damn sure it ain’t the lowly gestating front-hole havers.

Trans Women Are Women and Trans Women Are Female but Female Women Can Not Be Trans Women.

All people can be women. All women are female. All women, including penis-havers and uterus owners are female and can be trans. Woman, Female, and Trans, are self-defined categories with no universal meaning or definition and no shared experience or embodiment. People who identify as women can also identify as trans. But only women born with dick and balls form a cohesive class of women whose shared biology and cultural experience must be named and respected.

You will respect the terms as defined by your penis-having overlords!

Sex matters, but only for those people whose humanity really counts: Men.

 

Gatekeeping Exclusionary Radical Trans!

 

 

Sure out sucks that you will be erased

 

Uterus owners must not speak over the penis havers for any reason!

 

A gender-conforming heterosexual vagina haver weighs in

 

Irony! Man who claims “female” and “woman” have no meaning demands exclusionary assignation.

 

Lesbians oppressing males by inventing the term “femme” for gay female experience decades ago.

 

Related: Women who perform in drag is “cultural appropriation” of the men who impersonate them:

https://www.theodysseyonline.com/why-cis-female-drag-queens-are-form-of-cultural-appropriation

 

Men who identify as trans women have a shared material reality, with specific dynamics, health issues and discrimination, unlike actual women.

 

The important thing here is that that men have the right to name and define their experience and women do not.

 

Trans pioneer Leslie Feinberg was a transgender woman.

 

Leslie Feinberg was a feminist piece of shit in desperate need of attention, according to this poster.

 

 

It makes his stomach turn when any woman, including trans, speaks over a man.

 

LOL. wow.

 

Naming himself as a woman takes nothing away from actual women. Check.

 

Defend the boundaries! LOL silly women.

 

Only men who identify as trans women can be transfeminine, because “femininity” is not an acceptable identification for trans men.

 

Male AFAB Trans Exclusioners (MATES). It’s a Dick and Balls Owner Thing.

 

Women no longer have the right to a word to identify ourselves, because men demanded the right to our name. Men are now women. “Female” no longer describes our demographic because men demanded that we should never, ever be discussed or identified or named under any circumstance. We are the people who must no longer be named.

Men are now female. All men have the right to be recorded as female for our highest honors “Woman of the Year” (Bruce Jenner) and “Top Woman Director in Hollywood” (Andy Wachowski) and “Highest Earning Female CEO” (Martin Rothblatt). They skew our crime statistics with their over represented male violence recategorized as female. All of this is supported at the highest levels of male dominated media, government, medicine and industry.

But they cry, lord how they cry, when female members of their own transgender community take their self-identification rhetoric to heart.

There’s been thousands of male “transwomen” proxies taking women’s places. Lets see how these men react if women do the same.

Boo fucking hoo.
