Tracking Trans Responses

As a dyke, I have lived my life with the view that “nothing is sacred.” If something sounds bad, it probably is. Hence, my skepticism about gender identity theory.

In response to openly expressing such skepticism, some trans folks (and their “cis” allies) have, shall we say, adverse reactions. Conformity of thought is the new norm in the GLBT Movement.

This post will document fairly typical responses one hears when one says “controversial” things like:

“sex is not gender.”

“males are not females”

“females have a right to set a boundary and have it be respected.”

In response, some trans folks employ manipulative tools intended to get you to reject the logic of a trans-critical position and accede to a gender embracing world view. Don’t be fooled! These tricks are used by hucksters the world over the get their own way.

We offer this as a public service to the younger Gays and Lesbians of the world – because it is a rough time to be “just” Gay or “just”  Lesbian.

1) “I hope you understand that I may harm or kill myself if you purposely misgender me and then you’ll have that on your conscience, erm?”

#disgusting behavior #emotional blackmail #manipulation #self-harm #suicide

2) “ewwww, you are a transmisogynistic piece of shit. fuck you and your cissupremacy, radscum. and don’t tell oppressed people how they are allowed to react to their oppression at your hands.”

#disgusting behavior  #cult language #oppression olympics #abuse #mra #VIOLENCE

3) “You live in a world where hearing the words ‘die cis scum’ is the worst you can expect from transwomen, while you and your kind ACTUALLY rape and murder them, and get away with it scott free, EVERY FUCKING DAY. You call yourself a women battered bloody by the trans hordes because they defended themselves against your REAL violence by saying the words ‘die cis scum’? That’s NOT aggression, it’s SELF DEFENSE.”

#disgusting behavior  #oppression olympics #abuse #DENIAL #VIOLENCE #HYPERBOLE #LIES #ORWELLIAN

4) “TRANS WOMEN DO NOT HAVE MALE BODIES, YOU CISSEXIST SHITFUCK.

YOU brought up sex. YOU did. Don’t try that shit with me. How dare you say you think trans women are women and deserve respect, after you have called them men and abused them?

DID YOU SERIOUSLY call me an MRA? I hate men, so get the fuck out of here with that shit. Trans women are WOMEN. I happen to be ‘female bodied’, by your patriarchal bullshit fucking definitions, and I am telling you are WRONG. YOU FUCKING DARE TO TELL ME, A RAPE VICTIM AT THE HANDS OF MEN, THAT I AM AN MRA AND THAT I HAVE A RAPEY MENTALITY? FUCK YOU FUCK YOU FUCK YOU. I haven’t suggested it yet, but please, do go die in a fucking fire.

THE LIES AND PARANOIA YOU ARE ENFORCING AND SPREADING ABOUT TRANS WOMEN IS ACTIVELY CONTRIBUTING TO THEIR DAILY MURDER AND RAPE. YOU ARE A MURDER. THE BLOOD OF REAL WOMEN IS ON YOUR FUCKING HANDS, SHITBAG. I DON’T KNOW HOW YOU SLEEP AT NIGHT.”

#disgusting behavior  #oppression olympics #abuse #DENIAL #VIOLENCE #HYPERBOLE #LIES #ORWELLIAN

5) Denial of Reality

6) You are dumb and unfuckable and driven by sexual impulses (just like Kinsey Hope)

Oh hey look, some motherfucking truth in all the radscum lies.

You’d think Bug, who’s a lawyer (with terrible haircut and the overwhelming urge to creep on and masturbate to any trans woman she knows of), would have the research skills to find this.

Seriously, how does that cisbian transmisogynistic bitch win any court cases?

7) I am going to shoot you

8) I swear to Amon if I see Cathy Brennan anywhere in NYC y’all are gonna see headlines. “Deranged Asian woman stabs another on the N Train”

9) Assorted anonymous threats.

10) Shooting Dykes at Pride

11) Once there are prisons for trans* folks I will be there for murder.

12) Lesbians Are Actually Just Making This Up

13) I want to slit her motherfucking throat

14) Homophobia

 

15) Moar Violence

    I really don’t understand your problem with gender identity. You believe in sexual identity right? So what’s so wrong when someone identifies as a woman but is not BIOLOGICALLY a woman? I am sure you came to know that your sexual identity was not a choice, but instead something you were born with. How is being transgendered any different?

        Gender identity and sexual orientation are not the same.

        For one thing, sexual orientation doesn’t have a concrete biological reality attached to it, but biological sex is a concrete reality.

        Gender identity is more like saying “I feel like I can fly” and then jumping off a roof. We are radscum for DARING to say that what you “feel like” isn’t reality, just as feeling like and believing you can fly won’t make you fly. Of course you can go get surgically attached wings. But then….well…what would YOU think if someone was so sure they could fly that they got wings permanently attached to their bodies in order to prove it? Especially, what if this person told you they were born able to fly…but then got surgery, ironically, to make it so they could do what they claimed they could do already. Jesus fucking christ this shit gets circular real fast.

    You are a disgusting human being, bugbrennan. I cannot believe someone purporting to be a feminist can be so ignorant and bigoted.

    I’m not sure which exudes the most male energy…the posters from the tee-gee crowd that were the creative impetus here or the first three comments that followed. For some reason, the folks at Umbrella Inc never seem to grasp that they are still too hung up on clinging to the (often) het (often) white male privilege they spent so many years benefiting from.

    And true to form, when they get told something they disagree with, what happens? Out comes the froth and vitriol that anyone not agreeing with them must be bigoted or radscum. The only thing missing so far here is to be called a transphobic person, but I am sure someone will be along to cast that stone as well.

    Wow, you’re a disgrace to all women and all lesbians everywhere. What’s the matter, dearie, the right wing didn’t want you because you’re a gay feminist? Awww, boo. Don’t worry, I’m sure you can find somewhere to spew hate at people…I know, how about a blog! It’s for-reals-serious if it’s on the Internet!

    no, those “rad fems” are oppressive scum. you have no idea what you’re talking about, clearly. everything you say is incredibly offensive & harmful to peoples’ lives & existence. you really should open your mind just a tiny bit & actually work on educating yourself, because continuing to spout this complete BULLSHIT is fucked up. you have absolutely no real or truthful reasons as to why trans individuals do not have legitimate identities. you are, quite honestly, a complete idiot & i really hope that people do not take any of your information seriously & that you can eventually learn to not be a bigoted fuck. in this, i wish you luck.

    to people who run across this blog & disagree with everything bugbrennan feels the need to spout, i encourage you to respond & call her out on her completely cissexist, bigoted, harmful, & violent words & opinions. this cannot continue, people cannot continue to pretend that ANY of this is even remotely true or legitimate or has any sort of place in a real feminist movement.

    also, bugbrennan, i know, obviously, you will not agree with this comment & will only leave a completely dismissive & snarky response. so you really shouldn’t expend the energy to even try to pretend to engage in any kind of intelligent & informed conversation with me.

    If you felt the need to write a blog like this than it is you who are the warring faction – what the fuck even is this than just another fucking stab – it’s just like fucking africa for fuck’s sake what a piece of shit you are. This is just like saying the congolese government is better than koney just because even though they want to kill gay people they don’t outright admit to employing child soldiers… – for fuck’s sake is this how you actually think??? this is seriously messed up – as a bisexual gender-queer/trans-woman i’m straight up fucking disgusted by this. Do you even know what being a feminist means?? also do you even know a single trans person or have any idea what their lives actually entail? I’ve never heard a single trans-person ever try to swing this nonsense on people. The only thing I’ve ever heard from them is “please treat me like a human being” – in fact the only bullshit like this i’ve ever heard is from militant feminists that employ walking hypocrisy as their philosophy or *fill in the blank* bullshit politician.

    god i hope this article was sarcastic…. FOR YOUR SAKE – because none of us are fooled.

    Actually you have, on the gender identity bit of this site, looooong letter, introduced myself, tried to start a dialogue, you called me sir and said sorry about my penis? Not surprised you don’t remember, doesn’t benefit your platform of hatred to acknowledge non-violent correspondence. I think its terrible that a small minority in the trans community feel the best way to counter your hate-spiel is to return fire in an aggressive manner, that’s not how you stand up to a bully, you talk it out like a grown up and expose the bully for the close-minded individual that they are! Its a shame that instead of actually fighting the patriarchy you spend so much time being mean and even endangering the safety of trans women. Feminism is about equality not hatred, I hope one day you will realize how your misplaced anger has harmed feminism.

    Hi Cathy :) I’m glad that you had such an easy time coming out as a lesbian that you can’t relate to the struggles of others as they find their own identities in this confusing world, but I thought you might like to read this really interesting essay. I know that you’re an attorney and therefore a smart woman, so I hope you won’t have any trouble understanding the 18th century language. And before you decide that the article must be on the side of the trans women and men, if you take the time to read it you’ll see that it’s actually a really beneficial read no matter what your opinion is.

    You won’t even read it? :O
    Instead of undermining your intelligence by making the disrespectful presumption that you refuse to read one of the greatest writers and philosophers of all time, should I presume you have already studied this at law school and therefore can easily debate his ideas? I just wanted to know what you think. I personally think it;s beautiful.

    Keep up the good work, Kathy. It’s time for young girls and women that are struggling with their sexuality to open their eyes and realize these men in skirts and want sex with them ( I actually met one in the summer while waiting on the bus. He kept looking at us and kept coming closer, until finally he tried to coerce my cousin-whom is underage- try to come home with him. “My apartment is just right around the block, we can just hang out and watch movies. Would you like that?” we both said no thanks, it was really awkward and he started freaking out. ” I thought you were both cool and open minded. I guess not. You girls should be ashamed of yourselves.” we ignored himboth walked away from the stop really fast,
    went to a nearby WalMart and told the security guard in case he followed us. I checked ur page on google and read all about the Cotton Ceiling and it really is freaky not to mention dangerous. I’ll continue to fight the good fight, sincerely, anon

    This little man published my full name and address on several video comments when he didn’t like the comments I left for him and other wannabe women.
    I have reported him to Youtube but fear I may not have found every place he left my name and address.
    I do not have personal info on Youtube and have no idea how he found out my name and where I live.

    Read through the links. #4 has the person (Vivian de milo) stating that women also rape and kill trans women. Tried to find one case where this happened. Closest was a trans man (aka female at birth) in spain, kept prisoner and abused, robbed, and died while being held captive at the hands of two women. No reports of trans women being attacked by females. So I would love to see any evidence that females are attacking trans women, to back up this dubious claim that purportedly justifies threatening the lives of females who dare “say something you don’t like”. Reminds me of the following: “men’s biggest fear is that women will laugh at them. Women’s biggest fear is that men will kill them”. Women, let alone lesbians, are not endangering trans women.

    SHE IS A WOMAN WHO HAD HER HEALTHY BREASTS REMOVED “TO BE A MAN.”

    This just completely astounded me. Yes the threats from the Trans community, though defending themselves, are completely wrong however, on the same notion so is your hateful attacks on people who are struggling day after day with gender identity issues which are real.

    Let’s put it into perspective shall we?

    Gay’s and Lesbians over generations have been oppressed and viciously attacked be it verbally or emotionally. It is popular belief that being attracted to and having physical relationships with a person of the same gender is not only unnatural but just plain wrong. This belief has seen countless LGB people assaulted, killed, bullied to the point of suicide and put through extremely traumatizing events such as ceremonies to “exorcise” the “demons” causing the individuals to be gay. Not to mention being rejected by friends, family and being discriminated against in public places.

    The brain which controls these feelings and desires is at fault, It’s a neurological issue. The part of the brain which is supposed to control the basic instincts to copulate has mixed up and has developed as the other sex would have. This however is a natural occurrence through all of nature and although it is very misunderstood as “choice” it is something that can not be helped or changed. As a lesbian you should understand that. Tomorrow you won’t just wake up straight.

    Transgenderism.. or the medical term, Gender Dysphoria, is no different to that, Unless you yourself have felt that extreme hatred and disgust for your body and recognized that you don’t feel “right” in your own skin in regards to your genitals and what pronouns people use towards you or how they view you, you have no right to comment on whether it is wrong or not. It is safe to admit you don’t understand it, as it stands even a lot of people suffering from gender dysphoria don’t, but to treat their condition as bullshit and purposely go out of your way to degrade them further is absolutely unacceptable, and dare I say it very hypocritical when coming from a minority group who has felt the same discrimination and is still fighting for their rights all over the world.

    Accepting the fact that people are suffering with these issues is common decency and shows who you are as a person and when it comes to pronouns, referring to them as their preferred pronoun is a right they have. It is completely dickish for you to think you should be an exception to the rule and in my honest opinion this whole post just paints you as an immature and very nasty person who feels the need to degrade others, no better than the people in countries such as Nigeria, currently executing people for being homosexual. You should be utterly ashamed of yourself. Especially when you are completely bypassing the fact that your behavior is disgusting yet judging others as having “disgusting behavior” for trying to defend themselves against sheer Transphobic attacks.
