I don't think people should be ostracized or condemned for being screwed up with identity issues, but I will damned if I am going to accept somebody living a lie as the truth. I simply don't think "reassignment" surgery to correct a psychological problem is ethical.
"Transgendered" is extremely anti-feminist. In a truly feminist world, this crap wouldn't even exist because sex stereotypes wouldn't exist.
I am really against biological men trying to invade and co-opt feminist groups. Stay the fuck out:
We fully support anti-discrimination protections for transgender and transsexual people that do not run rough-shod over laws that protect females. We support the following definition of ‘gender identity’ – a person’s identification with the sex opposite her or his physiology or assigned sex at birth, which can be shown by providing evidence including, but not limited to, medical history, care or treatment of a transsexual medical condition, or related condition, as deemed medically necessary by the American Medical Association.’ Such a definition would protect the classification of sex, while simultaneously providing a cause of action for discriminatory practices on the basis of a persistent and documented “gender identity.” We welcome people who fit into this definition into space segregated by sex in recognition of their perceived need for access and in the fervent hope that we can achieve such protection for identifiably transgender or transsexual people without harming females.
As a result of this letter Brennan received pages of insults and death threats to herself and her family. Brennan tells me that the danger of the trans movement is that ‘they want to replace sex with gender which would, if successful, pose the obliteration of women.’ Openly admitting that many people have it in for her, Brennan states: ‘The most supportive demographics of the work I do are married heterosexual women. These are women who know dick and they know trans women are men and they are not buying this queer bullshit which has affected the gay community. So many lesbians have adopted this masochistic notion that they are oppressing men because we are born with a vagina.’ Since the threats have increased, Brennan has changed how she deals with the trans community: ‘I used to say I accept trans women as women, as a sign of respect. Not any more.’
That's true, but what you are dealing with are some screwed-up narcissists who can't see how untenable their ideas are.
