Gender, Patriarchy, and All That Jazz by MARY LOU SINGLETON
Like many Americans, I have been paying attention to the current marketing of gender, the unquestionable system that tells us what constitutes male vs. female in our capitalist patriarchy. With morbid fascination, I am witnessing our culture move away from the old women’s liberation values that told young people they could participate in any activity they enjoyed, wear any clothing they liked, play with whatever toys they wanted, and think any thoughts they thought without these behaviors and beliefs being labeled male or female by forces then known as sexism. Not only have the categories of “boy’s toys” and “girl’s toys” returned with a vengeful backlash, now children and the rest of us are being told that an affinity for “girl’s toys” and dresses and make-up actually defines the true essence of girlhood. If a child really, really likes what is being sold by the capitalist patriarchy as female, that child IS female. And vice versa for children who reject female toys and stereotypical female interests. Even if they have two X chromosomes and a vulva, these children are now obviously boys. These children are especially to be considered boys if they hate their female physiology and despise their female bodies. Through the miracle of capitalist cooptation, we have progressed from the women’s liberation war cry of “Start a Revolution, Stop Hating Your Body” to hating the body being framed as revolutionary.
With particular interest, I have been watching and reading about Jazz Jennings, the biological male who from the time of toddlerhood strongly preferred the toys, clothes and mannerisms marketed as female. Because Jazz rejected the products and behaviors sold and enforced as male, and because Jazz never had opportunities to see males who identify as males playing with “girl things” and wearing “girl clothes” and “acting like girls,” and because Jazz had no interest in the products marketed as “boy things” (the guns, the robots, the buzz cuts, the army men), Jazz began identifying as the kind of person who likes “girl things.” Jazz’s parents agreed that if Jazz shopped and talked and threw like a girl, obviously Jazz was a girl. Happily for them (if money can buy happiness), Jazz was born at the perfect time in our post-feminist, post-modern, bread-and-circuses phase of late stage capitalism. Jazz’s family landed paid appearances on talk shows, paid interviews, and now a reality TV show, all promoting the idea that sex-role stereotypes (aka gender) are the only definition of male and female that matter. Jazz Jennings has become the literal poster child for Gender Incorporated, telling and selling us all what it really means to be female in a capitalist patriarchy.
Like Honey Boo Boo and Miley Cyrus, and Michael Jackson before them, Jazz appears as a happy, fun-loving child with a caring, supportive family. Jazz continually smiles while doing the things girls do: posing in a mermaid suit, cheerleading, being pretty. In several articles and appearances, however, Jazz has hinted at sadness, worrying about finding a boyfriend, stating that many biological boys Jazz encounters do not view Jazz as a girl. Jazz reports plenty of female friends, though. While I’m sure Jazz’s life will have its difficulties (life-long hormone replacement, plastic surgery, and childhood fame all carry significant risks), the majority of biological females Jazz encounters will offer comfort and kindness to Jazz, as they have been socialized through gender to do. Gender after all normalizes female self-sacrifice. Most adult females, even those who identify as feminists, exhibit an unexamined acceptance of gender. Women reflexively label every creature they see as male (unless said creature is portrayed with breasts or fake eyelashes and lipstick). They fear more than anything not being liked and they work hard to never, ever commit the sin of hurting someone’s feelings. They have been enculturated to accept their own erasure and to serve the interests of biological males. Jazz’s life will have problems, but these will be buffered and mitigated by female caretaking.
Jazz will inevitably encounter people who refuse to accept the belief system that asserts gender as fact and biology (i.e. the living, material world) as a mere social construct or inconvenience to be fixed with chemicals and technology. Some of these people will be females who resent being told that femaleness can be reduced to performance of “femininity” while they themselves do not appreciate the patriarchal gender system that defines female this way. Others will be males and conservative females who support and revere the patriarchy, but want to maintain a social order like the good old days when men were men and women were women. Because Jazz and the rest of us are being strongly indoctrinated to view “misgendering” as violence, Jazz will have many tales of such violence to report through the gender-promoting media. Those who have participated in the crime of misgendering will be appropriately shamed for refusing to capitulate to the new rules of gender (they may also lose their jobs or speaking gigs at universities or be sued for discrimination).
Because Jazz was born into a violent patriarchy, Jazz may also encounter physical violence, almost certainly at the hands of males. Should it occur, and I sincerely hope it doesn’t, this violence will be labeled a hate crime, a crime more worthy of social outrage and attention than the rapes, murders, torture and beatings suffered by biological females at the hands of males. Unlike biological females, Jazz legally belongs to a protected class, and violence toward this protected class of people is taken more seriously by the media and liberal activists (and sometimes even the legal system) than the routine, all day, every day male violence against biological females.
I do not predict an easy or peaceful future for Jazz. I, however, am even more concerned about what the future holds for Jazz’s sister and all of the girls she represents: the less special kind of female, the kind who doesn’t automatically get awards of bravery for declaring herself a woman and devoting herself to the performance of her assigned gender role. The kind of female conditioned to take up as little space as possible, even if this means starving herself. The kind of female whose body is not legally her own. The kind of female who is viewed as a state regulated incubator, worthy of public debates in mainstream media venues about whether or not she should be allowed to end an unwanted pregnancy or give birth at home. (Such debates about what women should and shouldn’t be allowed to do with their bodies currently receive less social criticism and outrage than the crime of misgendering, by the way. When it comes to forced pregnancy and birth, “good people can disagree.”)
A recent article in Cosmopolitan (a magazine designed to enforce the rules of gender to the female population; a magazine which recently ran a cover story promoting torture porn and telling women that we should learn to enjoy being tied up, beaten, choked, and having men ejaculate on our faces), featured Jazz Jennings talking about his sister. Jazz tells the interviewer and the world that he views his sister’s body as something that can be used to serve his reproductive desires. Like so many gender non-conforming children today who would have once grown up to be happy gay people with intact bodies, Jazz is being sterilized through the process of transitioning into a cultural stereotype of femininity. The medical industry will remove his testicles, if they haven’t already done so, and through plastic surgery create a simulation of a vagina for Jazz. Jazz wants very much to be a parent. Lucky for him he lives in a world where women’s bodies are for sale and rent. In the Cosmo interview, Jazz brags that he is “convincing” his sister to serve him as incubator so he can fulfill his dream of being a mother. Jazz, speaking of his sister’s vagina (which he calls her “vag”), says, “We’ll take my hubby’s sperm and throw it in there and fertilize it.”

U.S. District Court Judge Robert Doumar rejected the Obama administration’s attempts to eliminate Title IX sex-based protections for women and girls and replace them with social stereotypes based on sex. The ruling came in the case of Gavin Grimm, a sixteen year old girl who believes that people have inborn mental characteristics based on sex, and that she has the personality of a sperm-producing individual. Individuals with this belief system call themselves “Transgender” and consider what they believe to be a mis-match between personality and reproductive biology to be a psychiatric condition.
Grimm believes her personality is one of a biological male, and that therefore she is a male with a female body. She would like to express this belief by using the urinals along with the males in the public restrooms at her school. Transgender adherents also believe that individuals who have personality traits “innate” to the opposite sex should be made to use facilities of the opposite sex that are normally sex-segregated for the protection and privacy of women (locker rooms, sports teams, sleeping quarters, showers, hospital bed assignments, etc.)
The Obama administration also believes in the concept of mental sex, and has attempted to bypass the legislature and judiciary by pushing guidelines through their Department of Education, OSHA, Department of Labor, EEOC, and Justice Department removing sex-based protections for women and girls under Title IX and replacing them with protections for “mental sex”, or “reproductive personality”, or “gender identity”.
The ACLU, with the backing of Obama’s Justice Department filed a lawsuit against Gavin Grimm’s school district, claiming that Title IX sex-based protections should be overridden by the concept of sex-based personality. Specifically they assert that students whose personality does not “match” their reproductive status should use areas of public nudity along with those of the opposite sex. Grimm’s school district sought to accommodate her sex-stereotype beliefs by offering her use of private unisex facilities in several locations throughout the school, but she claims segregating any facilities based on sex discriminates against her self-concept and belief that her brain is reproductively male.
This is at least the second federal ruling that rejects Obama administration attempts to strip Title IX protections from women and girls in order to establish federal guidelines on sex-based personality characteristics.
Here Gavin explains why she believes she is a sperm producing male individual, rather than an egg producing female individual:
“When I was little, I didn’t think of myself as a boy or a girl. I thought of myself as a kid who did what I wanted. When I started school, though, that gender divide became more apparent. I noticed that boys didn’t want to play with me. I had a best friend in elementary school, and one day he just said, “Hey, we can’t hang out any more.” When I asked why, he said, “’Cause you’re a girl.” I was indignant. “What are you talking about?” I asked. “What does that even mean?”
I never, ever, in a million years envisioned myself growing up to be a woman. I don’t think I thought of any alternatives, but I knew for sure that I was not going to grow up and be a woman. When puberty hit, my biggest struggle was not only feeling betrayed by my body, but also the increasing pressure to become a little lady.
It was around this age that my leg hair started growing in — and I did not want to shave it. I loved having leg hair; I thought it was cool! But, my classmates didn’t agree. My mother, of course, put a lot of pressure on me — because I was “blossoming into a young woman” and all that — to conform to feminine archetypes. That caused a lot of conflict in my family relationships. I was a very volatile, angry kid in that time period.
But, I didn’t give up; I just continued refusing to shave or wear dresses. I gravitated towards boys’ clothes. It started slowly: Oh, here’s one Pokémon shirt because I love Pokémon. Soon, I was only shopping in the boys’ section. My mother (and I want to make it very clear that she has come a very, very long way) is Christian. She had a lot of problems with homosexuality, and she perceived me to be a homosexual female because I was very masculine in how I acted and dressed. At one point, she came to me and said, “You’re so angry, and I know why.” I said, “Wait, you do?” And, she said, “You’re a lesbian.”
I was about 11 or 12 at the time. And, I knew I liked girls, but I’d never, ever, ever identified with the term “lesbian” — calling yourself a lesbian means asserting yourself as a woman, and I didn’t want to do that. I wanted to live in that gray area where I didn’t have to say that I was anything. So, the conflict started again. Apparently, being a lesbian doesn’t excuse you from shaving your legs.”

GUEST POST by Cheryl
I am watching “I am Cait” and I don’t know how to express the sadness and pain I feel.
I feel so invisible.
My love and care for a man named James for 35 years meant nothing.
I was 17 and he was 24 when we met.
He used me all those years.
And you know what was unforgiveable?
He let me think all those years, there was something wrong with me.
I wasn’t quite pretty enough, I wasn’t quite thin enough and because of my independence “I wasn’t Officer’s Wives material”.
Because of my upbringing, I was too damaged to have a baby with him and raise a healthy child, so we…I remained childless.
He let me BELIEVE that.
Then I wasn’t youthful anymore.
He was in his fifties when he “blossomed” and couldn’t contain “Jamie” anymore.
We were on vacation in Hawaii when he told me…
I was so scared.
Then when we got home, one beautiful summer morning when we had just woke up, we had this silent sexual standoff. .
He had on his nightie and matching panties to sleep in which I tolerated because it made him so happy and I loved him and felt he should be comfortable in the privacy of our home.
But that morning he wanted me to change roles.
He wanted me to “unveil” him as a virginal teenage girl and I just couldn’t.
It was unnatural to me.
It was abhorrent.
And just like that, he tossed all those years of love making away.
I didn’t know it then, but he tossed me away as well.
“Jamie” killed the Jim I knew and loved.
He expected me to be “her” audience and applaud as “she” applied moisturizer on freshly shaven skin among all the other countless, superficial, meaningless, beautifying tasks which in his misogynistic view defined a woman.
I’d just escape onto the deck with a jug of whiskey and pack of cigarettes and plan my liberation.
I’m fine now.
I’ve made a lovely new life for myself.
I built a small, comfortable home for myself on the shores of a beautiful lake.
But when I see the Bruce Jenner’s and the Bob Tur’s etc. celebrated for the path of pain and destruction they leave behind…
I want my voice to be heard.
Mountain Bike ‘Groundhog Day’ as male rider Sylvia Castaneda sweeps Women’s division of Vittoria Eastern States Cup
July 12, 2015
In a story that will sound like ‘Groundhog Day’ to those familiar with the Michelle Dumaresq saga, a male competitor named Sylvia Castaneda was given the green light by mountain bike racing sponsor Vittoria Tires to compete in the prestigious Eastern States Women’s Cup on the basis that he claims to feel that he is mentally female, or has an internal female essence.
Like Dumaresq, who became the male Canadian National Women’s Champion of Downhill Mountain Bike Racing for three years under a similar policy until his retirement, Castaneda ran his first race in the novice female rank and swept the entire division, and just like Dumaresq, beat the top time of the entire elite female professional category by more than two seconds.
“Sylvia Castaneda of Boston, racing in her very first downhill event, was easily the biggest shock of the weekend. The fast and fearless Castaneda not only won the female beginner class by a whopping 41-seconds, she was also the fastest female on the day, beating the women’s pro division winner by more than two seconds. Talk about starting off with a bang,” reported PinkBike, who opted not to mention the fact that Sylvia is in fact a male competitor. A fairness complaint, left as a comment on their post by an event attendee was also not responded to. Castaneda would have placed 2nd in the male novice category for the 19-29 year old age group in the June 14 Pats Peak New Hampshire event. He would not have placed at all in the professional male category.
Sylvia Castaneda is a man named James “Jamie” Hargreaves, with a history of competing (and not placing) in male races, sources report to GenderTrender. He works as a bike mechanic for a large shop in Boston’s west end. He has also used the alias “Jamie Liddell”, adopting the surname of his apparent life-partner, another transgender male.
Boston’s Community Bicycle Supply, “Sylvia’s” official sponsor, opted not to mention or celebrate their sponsored rider’s “shocking” winning sweep on either their main business or their several times daily updated facebook site. Not a whisper for their triumphant “female” champion.
Like Michelle Dumaresq before him, Castaneda/Hargreaves does not believe that his male physiology, bone structure, musculature, and history/socialization as a male athlete advantages him over the females he is competing against, says a source who knows him (and who wants it stated that they are a strong supporter of LGBT people with many beloved friends and family members falling into that category). Sylvia/James truly believes that he has a “female mind” and that this mind-set makes him unquestionably female biologically. He believes that males who are predisposed to “femininity” are not physically male because femininity is the definition of womanhood and the mind overrides corporeality. Or something.
Perhaps like many transgender male athletes he views himself as a “disadvantaged” due to the social stigma he receives as a male who embraces “femininity”, and dominating in competition against female athletes is an entitlement that “equalizes” that “disadvantage”. Or perhaps, like Dumaresq, his narcissism is so great that he believes his male biology has disappeared under his command (and some hormone pills!), and his sudden fabulous win streak in athletics is based on the fact that he is simply one very, very special lady.
Vittoria Tire, sponsors of the Eastern States Cup, agrees with this definition of “female athlete”: any man can be one. Rather than support women’s sports and the kick-ass female mountain bike division, they opted to prioritize the rights of any men who “identify” as “male-bodied females”.
After ignoring women’s fairness concerns following the male rider’s sweep of the women’s division, Vittoria responded by licensing James/Sylvia for his second race in the women’s division for round two of the New England Cup on July 4, in Killington, VT, this time in the top rated amateur women’s category. To no one’s surprise, he again swept the women’s division, besting all actual female amateur competitors and also all of the women’s professional category, except the #1 elite top women’s rider Mary Elges, who bested him by over three seconds. James/Sylvia would have failed to place at all in his top male amateur category at this event, much less the pro male category. Funny how PinkBike didn’t even mention “Sylvia” this time in their report of his second event.
What is striking beyond the extraordinary “Groundhog Day” synchronicities of the previous Michelle Dumaresq and the current Sylvia Castaneda incursion into women’s downhill mountain bike racing, (both sweeping the entire female division on their first novice race, both exhibiting utter entitlement to do so as men who feel “disadvantaged” by the existence of female sporting events), is the larger “Groundhog Day” of the male sporting authorities, media and sponsors shitting on women’s sports in general: Male sponsors like Vittoria Tire blatantly tokenizing and disrespecting elite women athletes. Male sponsors like Boston’s Community Bicycle Supply robbing female athletes of their right to compete fairly against other women. Male licensing boards prioritizing male feelings over basic female rights to licensed women’s athletic competition. Male sports media ignoring and censoring coverage of women’s sports. “Transgender” policies adopted by male sports authorities which solely benefit male competitors, to the sole detriment of female athletes. Rinse and repeat. Endlessly. Groundhog Day.

Declaration of War
by Vee Elessar
. I am a Woman. I will not be re-classified by men who “feel like” women. I will not tolerate being called CIS-woman, biological-woman, genetic-woman, woman-born-woman or female-woman. I will not tolerate being accused of having CIS privilege, obtained illegitimately at the moment of my birth. I will not tolerate being accused of wielding this privilege over men. I will fight back against this misogynistic attack that only seeks to silence me and make me invisible.
. I am a lesbian. I will not be re-classified by men who “feel like” women. I will not call men who “feel like” women, lesbians. I will call them what they are: heterosexual men. I will not put up with being accused of having “mono-sexual privilege” that I wield over men. I will not be shamed and bullied into having sex with men who say they are lesbians and I will call those who try what they are: sexual predators. I will never sign up, line up or shut up about the genocidal assimilation of my lesbian sisters into your transgender cult. I will gather with my sisters wherever and whenever I please and I will not grant you access no matter what woman hating law I am breaking. I will fight back against this misogynistic/homophobic attack that only seeks to silence me and make me invisible.
. I am a woman. I will not stand for the ridiculous premise that I am trans-misogynist. It is my birthright to speak out loud about any idea or practice that harms women. I will continue to speak out loud about male privilege, male entitlement and male pattern violence. I will continue to expose the real hatred that men direct at women, wether those men happen to “feel like a woman” at the time or not. I will fight back against this misogynistic attack that only seeks to silence me and make me invisible.
. I am a woman. I reject all notions that there is such a thing as ‘Gender Dysphoria’, female brain, woman feelings, or any other gender based idea, theory or practice. I reject your gender binary straight jacket. I reject your pornographic version of woman and the sexual slavery you promote. I will fight back against this misogynistic attack that only seeks to silence me and make me invisible
. I am a woman. That word belongs to me. I get to say what that word means. I will not use the word woman or she to include one man. I will not use the word woman or she to describe one man. I will not ally myself with any man who uses woman and she to describe himself no matter how much of a “good guy” he says he is. I will protect the word woman, and in protecting the word woman, I protect my ability to speak about myself, my experience, my future, my past and the entire history of women. You will not rob me of my ability to know my sisters through language. I will fight back against this misogynistic attack that only seeks to silence me and make me invisible.
. I am a woman. It is my birthright to speak about my body, my experience, my life using my own words. My vagina is not a front hole any more that your penis is a front tail. I will continue to talk about my period, watch the Vagina Monologues, hear Germaine Greer and all my beloved feminists speak, and call other women my sisters wether you “feel” excluded or not. I will gather with my sisters wherever and whenever I please and I will not grant you access no matter what woman hating law I am breaking. I am not afraid of you. Calling me names will not stop me. Threatening me will not stop me. I will fight back against this misogynistic attack that only seeks to silence me and make me invisible.
I am a woman
and I will defend myself !

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.
