Trans Telephone #gamergate

Telephone is a game played  in which one person whispers a message to another, which is passed through a line of people until the last player announces the message to the entire group. Errors typically accumulate in the retellings, so the statement announced by the last player differs significantly, and often amusingly, from the one uttered […]

Straw Transwoman err Man

A straw man is a logical fallacy based on the misrepresentation of an opponent’s argument. To be successful, a straw man argument requires that the audience be ignorant or uninformed of the original argument. Transgender Women and their Helpful Allies DEPEND ON the straw man specifically with regard to arguing against “Cathy Brennan.” I generally do not […]

That Awkward Moment…

So I have been home sick this entire week. Today, I go to the doctor and discover I have a double ear infection. Ouch. Anyway, being home sick means I have been watching a lot of Law and Order: Special Victims Unit and reading publications I normally don’t – like Curve Magazine. I remember when […]

OutLIARS (or menmenmenmenmen)

*This piece was a joint effort with the ever-genius Hypotaxis. Unsurprisingly, Dana McCallum, a man who identifies as a woman, was given a little slap on the wrist after pleading guilty to spousal abuse and rape. Most males, like McCallum, do not receive sentences that are in any way proportionate to the trauma…

Riddle Scale adapted to separatism

Originally posted on Feed the Fishes:
Today I decided to combine two of my favorite concepts: Women’s separatism and the Riddle Scale of Homophobia.  The Riddle scale offers a range of positive and negative attitudes along a spectrum, acknowledging that homophobia is not an ON/OFF switch, an either/or.  And, it contributes the complicating assertion that…

“He For She” or, “What About the Men?”

Originally posted on Hypotaxis:
*This piece was a collaborative effort between myself and the amazingly brilliant Phonaesthetica. (If you’re not reading her blog, you should, because she’s an incredible writer.) It’s review day. Let’s clarify, once more, the differences between radical and liberal feminism. Liberal feminism asserts that women’s liberation comes through equality with men,…

What You Don’t Define, You Can’t Control

I have not wanted to blog at this blog anymore. “Bugbrennan” has been more effective beyond what I had intended when I started this effort a few years ago. Go ahead. Google it. Google “me.” You will see how awful I am, how much of an antagonist I have been. I am the most transphobic […]

GUEST POST: You are not a feminist

Stop coopting the term “feminist.” If you privilege trans concerns over woman-born-women’s concerns, you are not a feminist. If you believe that the question of “what does it mean to be a woman?” has been settled, and that the only legitimate answer is that a woman is anyone who declares that identity, you are not […]

Notes from RadFem 2013

Many of you have asked for my impressions of RadFem 2103, a radical feminist conference that recently occurred in London, UK. This was the second conference in a row in London.  I was lucky enough to be able to attend both conferences. I have tried to wait for jet lag to wear off before I […]

GUEST POST: Wither Goes Radical Feminism?

Wither Goes Radical Feminism? By Kathleen Barry Congratulations to all of you who have acted with so much courage to face down the anti-feminist trans, the Mens Rights Activists, (MRAs) and men’s war against women in general. Your feminist determination stands powerfully against their threats, their lies, their stupidity, their meanness and hatred of women […]
