Guilt and shame are powerful tools for control, and are used with regularity by so-called leaders of the GLBTQWTF Movement and their lemmings against Gays and Lesbians who don’t sign onto the Movement’s Party Line on Gender Identity.
An accusation made with astonishing regularity against Radical Feminists and Pro-Feminist Men who object to Gender Identity is that we are “just like Fred Phelps” or Maggie Gallagher. That is, that our Feminist objections to Gender Identity are rooted in some conservative religious bigotry.
It is to laugh. It is absurd. But, alas, it is sometimes effective to curtail pro-Feminist speech, as most Gays and Lesbians pride themselves on not being religious lunatics and fear – for a moment (and sometimes for a long moment) – that because this accusation is uttered, it might be true.
And, of course, the more a lie is repeated, the more it sounds true. And the more people who repeat the lie, the harder it is for an individual to crawl out from underneath that heavy rock and say “hey, y’all are wrong.”
But it is still a lie, nonetheless.
Yes, I notice Fred Phelps and Maggie Gallagher are on the cutting edge of objecting to sex stereotypes that limit the universe of who a Woman is. They are also right out there, the first to speak up when Men in Woman Face encroach into Women’s Space. And they for sure object to the idea that Woman = Fuckhole for Men.
They Care A Lot About That.
No, of course they don’t.
Ironically, it’s the GLBTQWTF Movement that shares a bed with Conservatives, not Radical Feminists.
It is a Conservative notion – not a Progressive one – that Gender Identity is Innate; that is, that there is a Female Brain that makes one desire all things “feminine.”
It is a Conservative notion that Performing Femininity makes one Female.
It is a Conservative notion that Women deserve no space of our own or any say over with whom we congregate.
It is not Radical Feminists who support these Conservative notions – it is the GLBTQWTF Movement.
You adorable little Genderqueers with your funny names and obsessions with pronouns – you are fronting for the greatest stealth Conservative Movement in modern times.
It makes me laugh, except when it makes me want to cry.
