Recently, I have experienced a round of attacks by some radical-identified feminists and lesbian feminists for my writings and transgender advocacy.

I’m stunned by the otherwise trans supportive queer folks who are buying into the anti-trans arguments around the cotton ceiling. This is coming from a woman who wrote a letter to the UN asking that gender identity non-discrimination not be instated. She makes no attempt to hide the fact that she has a strong anti-trans agenda. Her writings and the comments her friends leave on them are bordering on hate speech. Bottom line: there is a huge difference between what trans activists are saying when we talk about the cotton ceiling and what she claims we’re saying.I can understand anti-trans folks who pick up her argumentation, but everyone else? I mean, check your sources. If NARTH or Focus on the Family was railing about some horrible presentation Ellen Degeneres or Lady Gaga was giving, wouldn’t you be extremely skeptical? Wouldn’t you want to hear directly from Ellen/Gaga what she was doing, rather than take NARTH’s description of it on face value? Please use the same discretion here.

Dear Online “Activists,”
Hi. You don’t know me, but you still talk smack about me on the Internet. That’s cool – I know how that goes. Makes you feel better. Go ahead – vent your spleen. Spew it on me – I am a dyke. I’ve been taking this for years.

I am beginning to think the Sherbourne Health Centre hates Lesbians.
First, Counselor Xander Sarkisova pushes his rapey analysis that Lesbians are bigots for not wanting dick. To date, Sherbourne Health Centre has not responded to this. Xander’s blog is here. Xander claiming to be a victim is here.
WTF Sherbourne Health Centre? If you think Two is a Trend, let Sherbourne know.
