A new trend has come to the ultra far left. While Russia unveils its new nuclear arsenal & far right groups gaining momentum worldwide the Radical Feminist Movement is now going to war with the trans community. Firstly, I thought radical feminists were pro-choice as in a person’s body belongs to them and shouldn’t be regulated by law. While the term mainly refers to abortions is it not any persons right to wear whatever clothes they desire, to take hormones should they so choose? I was told trans people are “playing dress up” because they’re “afraid to be gay”
This is where it gets interesting. I was debating a self-professed radical feminist & LESBIAN who was spreading this propaganda. I asked about intersex people and was not given an answer. She then told me that trans people just have a mental illness that needs to be corrected at certain facilities. Do you see the irony of a lesbian saying that? Not only are there no existing legitimate psychological therapies to deal with “gender dysmorphia” but the idea of these trans re-education camps is exactly the same thinking that created those “Pray the Gay Away” camps, notorious for their suicide rates & total failure. The most ironic part is that 60 years ago homosexuality was in the same Psychiatric Diagnostic manual.
The activists of Stonewall would be ashamed. They united against the common threat of oppression. I didn’t think I’d see the day when lesbians would discriminate against trans individuals. If gender is a social construction then refer to people using proper pronouns. I have’t heard the other side, they definitely aren’t as vocal but anyone desiring to send people to trans re-education camps needs to see the parallels between that and the Southern Christians who abhor homosexuality. The DSM, the diagnostics book for western psychiatry changes over time to fit the times and incorporate new information. Homosexuality and masturbation were removed, why not gender dysphoria?
What if these people gain political power? Will they ban prescription hormones and have North Korea style detention centres? They won’t, radicals never do in Canada, but in America anything goes. No Charter of Rights and Freedoms. I don’t know if any of these places even exist, but this is just ridiculous and if they do become a reality I will personally campaign to shut them down. You’ve got Neo Nazis in America that hate you, KKK, and the world’s new emerging superpower has banned it in all of Russia. In Poland the largest far-right gathering in decades took place. I see people as individuals, not as groups. I try to debate and get an argument with personal attacks. If you did that in university you’d be out the door. I believe that everyone is equal and deserves the freedom to speak, worship or dress as they please. Our bodies should not be government regulated. Meaning we can do with them as we choose.
Radical lesbian feminist suggests re-education camps for trans people in the mold of Pray the Gay away camps in the Bible Belt. She calls it a mental disorder to be cured, 60 years ago they thought that about homosexuality. Things change. This campaign of anger only further divides the fragile and fragmented left. The nazi filth will gain power, or at least weird influence while former allies squabble over stupid things. PUBLIC means everyone is welcome. If you want a segregated party then rent out some space. Its what the other extremists have to do.
Sex positivity and sex work are not evil. By characterizing them like that it makes every prostitute out to be a junkie tied to a pimp with violent customers. I know a few prostitutes personally, male & female. It is also spitting on the feminists before you who used their sexuality as a weapon. Who marched for the right to bare their breasts in public. I’m lucky enough to be friends with one of the prominent ones. Out of my current and former friends thats five prostitutes, two trans individuals, two girls that protested in support of the right to take their shirts off, and one who has been at the vanguard of the true movement since 1977. Thats 10 friends that are now. considered anathema to the Radical Feminist Movement. How many of these people actually spoke to prostitutes and escorts?
This is in no way an attack on feminism or lesbians. This is directed at those individuals that prefer segregation-esque policies and have a poor knowledge of their own history and wish to force their beliefs on others.
