Gender critical and radical feminism define gender as sociological (feminine/masculine) and sex as biological (female/male). Woman is defined as an adult human female. Radical feminists seek to abolish gender as it is used by patriarchy to oppress women socially, reproductively, and financially. They strive to preserve women's spaces (such as restrooms, locker rooms, and health care providers) and areas of artistic and intellectual expression separate from men.
Trans ideology posits that one's gender is self-determined based on one's feelings and defines woman as the characteristics and behaviors traditionally ascribed to females by society. Increasingly, transactivists are conflating gender and sex and asserting that a person can self-identify both gender and sex.
Gender critical feminists strive to maintain the distinction between gender and sex. The conflation of gender and sex erases the biological reality of women, eliminates women-only spaces, and disestablishes women as a protected class. Existing laws and legislation currently being passed around the world allowing for self-identification on legal documents do not differentiate between gender and sex.
The acronym TERF
(Trans-Exclusionary Radical Feminism) is used primarily by transactivists and their allies to denigrate radical feminists and other women who express gender critical ideas. Transactivists portray TERFs as violent oppressors by virtue of their ideas alone.

Parents File Lawsuit After 12-Year-Old Girl Attempts Suicide Twice at School After Secret Meetingshttps://www.theepochtimes.com/parents-file-lawsuit-after-12-year-old-girl-attempts-suicide-twice-at-school-after-secret-meetings_4247010.html
After a 12-year-old girl attempted suicide on school property twice after months of secret meetings with a school counselor, her parents have filed a lawsuit.
On Jan. 5, Wendel and Maria Perez received a call from Destiny Washington, who identified herself as a school counselor at Paterson Elementary School (PES) in Fleming Island, Florida, part of Clay County District Schools. Washington told Mr. and Mrs. Perez they needed to come to the school immediately. Washington said it was about their daughter, a sixth-grader, but would not reveal any further information.
When the Perezes arrived at the school they waited in the lobby for 20 minutes before someone came to escort them to a room where Washington, PES Principal John O’Brian, Vice Principal Courtney Schumacher, and a Clay County Schools Police officer were waiting. Mr. and Mrs. Perez were instructed to sit down. According to the federal lawsuit obtained by The Epoch Times—filed Jan. 24 by Child and Parental Rights Campaign, Inc. on behalf of Mr. and Mrs. Perez—Washington told the Perezes the reason they were called to the school was because their daughter “had tried to commit suicide by hanging herself in the school restroom.”
Washington then informed the parents the reason why their daughter tried to kill herself was “because of her gender identity issue” and the fact they would “would not be in agreement with these changes” because of “their Christian Catholic religious beliefs.” As the Perezes sat reeling, Washington stunned them again. The Jan. 5 suicide attempt was the second effort. Their daughter had also tried to hang herself the day before. Without explaining how the child survived the first attempt, Washington insisted school staff was not aware of the first attempt prior to the second.
According to the complaint, the daughter sought guidance from the counselor because she was being bullied. She liked video games, which is something her peers say boys do. A friend “confided she thought she was transgender,” and the girl thought she could be transgender as well because “she wanted to be strong and free ‘like a boy.'” When the child went to speak to Washington, she saw “a lot of posters, literature, and other promotional materials related to LGBTQ ‘pride’ in Washinton’s office.” The girl “thought those materials were ‘cool’ and asked Washington if she supported transgender people.” Washington said she did, at which point the child told Washington, “In that case call me ‘M’ and ‘he.’”
Through weekly private meetings over the next few months, the complaint alleges Washington endorsed the belief that the child “could be a boy” and called her by the male name and pronouns. Washinton promised she would not tell the girl’s parents. However, the promise of confidentiality did not extend to the child’s peers. Washington began addressing the child by the male name in front of her friends without the girl’s permission. The child was humiliated. The bullying, for which she sought help from Washington, escalated. As the child became more confused and depressed, Washington told the girl she would get all of the teachers to start calling her by the male name.
After being told their daughter had tried twice to hang herself on school property because their Christian Catholic beliefs conflicted with her new identity and being told they had been kept in the dark about the months of private meetings because of “confidentiality issues,” the Clay County Schools Police officer then informed Mr. and Mrs. Perez that their daughter had already been placed in the back of a police car and was going to be transported to a mental health facility under the Baker Act, regardless of whether or not they approved.
According to the complaint, Mr. and Mrs. Perez “were not given the option of transporting their traumatized daughter to the facility or even traveling with her to provide comfort. Instead, their suicidal 12-year-old daughter was taken in a police vehicle to an emergency room, where she stayed until 4 a.m. when she was transferred alone, without the comfort and/or support of her parents, to another emergency room and then admitted to the behavioral health unit at Wolfson Children’s Hospital.”
Named in the lawsuit are David Broskie (individually, and in his official capacity as Superintendent of Clay County District Schools), John O’Brian (individually, and in his official capacity as Principal of Paterson Elementary School), Courtney Schumacher (individually, and in her official capacity as Assistant Principal of Paterson Elementary School), and Destiny Washington (individually, and in her official capacity as counselor at Paterson Elementary School). Twelve causes are outlined. A jury trial is demanded.
The Father’s Story
“This counselor said we were there because our daughter tried to commit suicide,” Wendel Perez recalled of that day to The Epoch Times. “The counselor alleged that it was because of her gender identity issue, and they knew we would not be in agreement because of our religious beliefs. We’re Catholic Christians. When I asked why they didn’t notify us about these surreptitious meetings with the school counselor, we were told by an administrator that confidentiality issue prevented them from telling us about them.”
“Confidentiality” was the same reason given to January Littlejohn after she discovered school officials in Leon County, Florida, held a private meeting with her daughter. As reported by The Epoch Times on Aug. 23, several school officials met with her daughter in secret to draft a “transgender gender nonconforming student support plan,” which was used to record her child’s new non-binary status, “preferred name,” and “preferred pronouns.” The 13-year-old child was even allowed to determine she would “be comfortable rooming w/either sex” on overnight school tips without the knowledge or consent of the parents. Staff also decided the parents would not be informed of anything involved in “implementing this plan,” and staff were instructed not to “include gender-specific pronouns when speaking w/parents.”
Perez said when he and his wife arrived at the hospital, they were under the impression their daughter was going to be with someone. But they discovered their daughter had been by herself the whole time. More disturbing was when she was moved into the behavioral health unit, where one of the staff members called their daughter by the boy’s name used by Washington. Perez said his daughter immediately corrected the staff member, saying that was not her name and she told him her real name. What Perez wants to know is how the hospital staff member knew to address his daughter by the fictitious name in the first place. “Who was in charge? Perez asked rhetorically. “We weren’t allowed to go with her. The school was in charge. The school provided all of the information to the hospital. The school coordinated with the hospital.”
She was away from us for a week, with limited access to family,” Perez said. “Then she was released to us on January 12, and she’s been with us since then.”
Asked how his daughter was doing now, Perez said “she’s doing great. She’s a happy girl like she was before. She is relieved she isn’t at the school anymore and she does not want to go back. She is getting her schoolwork from her teachers and doing her work from home.”

I wish I had friends in my country who do not worship the feet under troons. I lost my previous friend group of almost 10 years at least partly because I could not keep my fucking mouth shut about my radfem views. It started with me being naive and thinking saying "hormones should not be given to kids" is a normal view to have - that triggered my friends nonbinary girlfriend to have a panic attack and crying. Other friends best friend is a FtM Aiden who brags about all the dick they are sucking and what kind of pocket pussies they have bough (for what purpose??). Well, it's been a couple of years now, it doesn't matter any more.
I don't know if I would fit into any legitimate feminist groups either, since my humor has been tainted my years and years of image board browsing, and I tend to laugh at some non-PC jokes occasionally.
It's just frustrating. I wish I knew this before accidentally stumbling upon gc thoughts. I would have closed my eyes, kept my mouth shut and kept repeating TWAW in my head

Oh god, my condolences anon. Must be fun trying to be a little handmaiden for his delusions and smile along (that sounded derogatory, I was not meaning that sorry lol).
Funny that you mention therapy - from observing one of my only remaining friend's journey through psychology university degree, therapists are "brainwashed" into the gender speak already in school. It is very much libfem central over there, even though the people that get into the school are very intelligent, as they only take in like 1% of applicants.
I recently started a genetics course in my university, I almost burst out laughing at the professor talking about intersex mutations. He just described them as flat out abnormalities and how some, like XYY, are more prominent in prison population since it causes aggressiveness etc. It was such a different approach to what I am used to in social media. (I'm all for intersex rights and shit and I don't think they are freak or anything it was just so shocking)

I don't blame the therapists, I believe some want to seem woke just out of fear. I has (or is proposed to become?) actually illegal to become anything but affirming, since it is "conversion therapy". They could lose their job they have spent years and god knows how much money getting. I've seen some reddit screenshots of people complaining they were not cleared for HRT, and wonder if they should report the doctor / therapist for mistreatment…
Lol the bra thing makes me think of a twitter post I saw recently, something about women deserving comfortable bras or go braless. OF COURSE some fucking brave and stunning fat scrote was in the replies telling how putting his moobs in bras make HIM feel so euphoric and feminine uwu :3c At least some women told him to fuck off. I have seen some rise in pushback towards these fuckers, I hope more people come to their senses.
What's with the other boards?
I've been trying to vent in ot but it just won't let me but glad this fits here too. I had to tell a bra size calculator if I was afab or amab and it felt like a slap in the face.

You will only lose… your blind faith in trans ideology!
Bleak but, I used to be a pickme mra antifeminist retard before the trans thing blew up. It finally opened my eyes to the reality that males really do hate all women and that I wasn't special or different, just a useful idiot. I told myself I was nlog to protect my ego from the crushing reality that we actually do live in a fucking patriarchy and that feminists were right all along. I'm not sure that would have happened if I didn't see everyone bending over backwards to protect obviously mentally ill degenerate coomer scrotes. It was in looking for a different take on the trans issue that I started reading things written from a woman's perspective. I had been subconsciously avoiding anything created by women because I had been so conditioned to think "they" (we) were inferior idiots, and that only by reading and watching men could I become better. I was actually shocked by how articulate and reasonable women are. The lies of the mra movement became so embarrassingly obvious I couldn't believe I ever entertained them. In a fucked up way I have to thank the trans movement for waking me up from that nightmare, and I feel like I'm not the only one. This may be overly optimistic, but I feel like the women's rights movement will only get stronger. The sexism inherent to trans ideology is so blatant that it works as a litmus test to see who actually has compassion for women and who is just pretending for social cred. It forces you to confront the most comical, overly exaggerated textbook form of sexism, and watching people fumble with this concept is the blackest pill. I will never be able to go back. I will never unsee the truth. And I don't think I'm alone. I sense a rage bubbling beneath the surface, a class consciousness beginning to form. I see it in comment sections, in tiktoks, in passing remarks. I have hope for the future, the more oppressive trans ideology gets, the more undeniable feminism becomes. We may be too scared to speak publically at the moment, but that only stokes the fire in our hearts. From each and every injustice those small fires will quietly but steadily grow until someday becoming an inferno; and when that day comes, I don't think men will be ready.
Sorry for the blog and fanfiction.

I feel a little better seeing that the news in my country don't pander to degenerate troons.
There was this news article about a TIM who abused a minor, and the article always refers to the abuser as male, only using his "female name" in quotation marks.
In the past year there's been a chunk of the teenage population that's been pushing for all this gender special bullshit but I'm glad to see it's not catching up where it actually matters.

On the one hand I appreciate he came out and said him turning transgender and then non-binary was all stuff of his fucked up psyche, but on the other hand, how could he be stopped when the only person who did refuse to his delusions was fired and then "cancelled" by him? Most of the people on his way were afraid of that but he also accuses them of not doing anything. It's a weird situation which played a huge part in the non-binary shit we have today.
Despite "accusing" people for not stopping him in the whole article, at least he doesn't victimize himself in the last sentences.https://www.dailysignal.com/2019/03/10/i-was-americas-first-non-binary-person-it-was-all-a-sham/
Most moids literally cannot grasp the concept that gender roles are not the same as biological sex. They think women not wanting to be domestic sex slave barbies is the same as denying the existence of x any y chromosomes.
We are being "punished" for rebuking our contrived, subservient role because that's all the see women as.

Hey gc anons, I am coming from the regular vent thread in /ot/ because I think my vent was so heavily gc related that it probably fits better here. So my longtime friend who I have known literally since we were both babies shared this tweet and said it was a "good point" and it made me so upset I almost went off at her in dms, even though we never fight and she is generally a very sweet person. I was so furious that someone could see surgeries women are often pressured into by men's expectations like BA and cosmetic labial surgery as "gender affirming" as though looking like a porn star caricature somehow makes you look "like a woman." It's only "gender affirming" in the sense that it does work to legitimize and affirm the bullshit concept of gender identity, but of course that is not what the poster or she meant in spreading this idea. I am also deeply disgusted that such a line of logic could be used to justify stunting a young girl's growth and giving her a life threatening mastectomy to remove healthy tissue, as though the only options for a young girl to see in her future are being a bimbo or a surgical imitation of a man. It's just so wrong and I am incredibly disappointed, I don't know how an otherwise intelligent and caring person like my friend came to believe something like this. I'm glad in the end I decided not to confront her because she would probably just hate me forever for being a terf, but either way I feel like we can't be as close anymore. We already grew apart a bit because we live in different cities now, but after this I just need to distance myself from her overall. It sucks.
I love your idea! It would be nice to make radfem theory more accessible, especially since a lot of the books are out of print and mostly found online as pdfs, and it feels like a lot of people just don't know it's out there. I love SCUM too, although I'm not sure I would use it to introduce people. A QR code sticker sounds like a good bet though, if you can get some printed. I used to have a link to a collection of PDFs of Dworkin's work too, I could try and dig it out of my bookmarks if you're looking for any.
It's honestly a shame how repressed their writing is, because I feel like Solanas and Dworkin and so many other feminist authors had such a viscerally beautiful way with words. If you're looking for a slightly less anonymous community to discuss this stuff, I really suggest making a Tumblr and connecting with radfems on there. We have a pretty big community, used to have some issues with drama but I don't think it's nearly as much of a problem anymore.
Drop some usernames to follow, nonny
, I haven't been on Tumblr for years but would join for sisterhood
>>4369>How did the trans community evolve from mostly self-hating homosexuals to mostly narcissistic heterosexuals?
Honestly, handmadens giving AGPs a platform and trying to snuff out HSTS
The more that happened, the more AGPs joined in and now there's fuck all HSTS in comparison
It's really a shame because I'd be okay with the existance of HSTS (maybe not even sharing spaces with them. okay trama-nonies?) but AGPs should be having every move they make monitored, not being emboldened
Oh gosh, I meant to check the board to see if anyone wanted links but I forgot, thank you for your service! I think that's where I got my pdfs too.>>4431
For an intro, I really love Cordelia Fine's Delusions of Gender. I feel like she's a little more low-key, and while it was published in 2010 and the "woke" language has changed quite a bit since, it's not the kind of stuff that would immediately turn off a casual normie TRA type. It breaks down the myth of brain sex and goes into how socialization affects men and women, but particularly women. It even discusses a study on how it can impact (passing, old school HSTS mostly) trans women, and it's a pretty good deflection against TERF
accusations without pretending they're actually women. It's been a little while since I read it, but I also remember it being pretty funny and easy to get through. I don't think it really hits you over the head with the radfem theory, but I do think it would be hard to read and understand it without coming to those conclusions yourself. I think I got my pdf from the same blog the other anon linked, but if it isn't there I could try to figure out a way to post it. >>4430
Other anon's recommendations are great, I'll add a few of my own. Some are strictly political but a few are just funny gals or also talk about their cool hobbies, it's nice to have a mix so radblr doesn't feel like doomscrolling.
Yes, I also love how she compares the gender cult to a religion. It totally is. They literally believe in a gender soul that can only be 'freed' once they mutilate their bodies, and shun the non-believers like heretics. Luckily I'm on TERF
island but if I ever get some genderfag coming up to me asking me about my pronouns or whatever, I will say "Oh, I'm not religious".
I'm pissed she got yeeted from Youtube though. I worry the likes of Posie Parker and Karen Davis will be next. I know Posie isn't necessarily radfem but she is still based nonetheless, and I see her getting more radicalised as time goes on. I also fear Magdalen Burns will have her treasured channel removed one day too. Even beyond the grave, she continues to peak people daily.
I'm so sorry for you and your daughter.
Your boss is right, though. She will get pressure to trans, and it probably be from her peers and teachers. You need to get ahead of it and talk to her about this. I mean, not now. But like once she starts elementary school, especially if your school public school system is in thrall to gender identity. Read Irreversible Damage and books like that so you can be aware of the arguments that will be used to try to convince her to transition. Also, make sure she doesn't spend a ton of time online. That's a huge gateway for this.
I'm so sorry you have to go through all this just because your daughter is tomboy. The world is so fucked up.
Generally I'm just very open about feminism and if they're TRAs, they'll whine and derail with moid gender shit. If they don't do that, you'll eventually end up at the truth that misogyny oppresses female people for being female, and then you've basically got your answer.
They could also be conservative but tbh even conservative women hate men half the time. They'll cushion everything with "I'm not a feminist, but-" and "Of course not all men, but-" but half the time all they need is another woman who's safe to share their real thoughts with.

I'm planning on doing some amateur data analysis using data from some surveys the U.S. government has been doing to assess how the public is faring during Covid. In it, they ask for age, birth sex, identified sex, and myriad other things. I intend to use data they collected between July 2021 and March 2022 (over 675,000 responses) to try to calculate trans identification across different demographics.
Unfortunately, there's not data for minor sexual/gender identification, only for adults.
Source for my data: https://www.census.gov/programs-surveys/household-pulse-survey/datasets.html#phase3.4
Note: One interesting thing about this data is that you can choose either "male" or "female" as your birth sex, but for your identified sex, you can choose one of four options regardless of your birth sex:
4. None of these
This means that males who say they identify as female are recorded separately from males who say they identify as transgender.
On the graph, the top line includes people that identify as neither "male," "female," or "transgender." However, I wasn't comfortable assuming that all these people actually are trans, since I'm sure some GC types would tick that box angrily. The bottom line represents people who explicitly said they identify as the opposite sex or as trans. The actual % of trans identification likely falls somewhere in-between.
File: 1649669551568.png (82.67 KB, 1326x1235, hsts vs trans vs nonbinary.png)
A funny artifact of separating out people identifying as the opposite sex vs identifying with the label "transgender" is that you can see a strong divide in their sexual orientations.
There's an official Tableau visualization of LGBT data for the overall adult population here: https://www.census.gov/library/stories/2021/11/census-bureau-survey-explores-sexual-orientation-and-gender-identity.html
The former group is very straight relative to the latter, which is overwhelmingly "lesbian" and bisexual.
Same, but as someone who grew up without any religion but could see others partake in it I already knew how easily people blindly believe made up shit for no reason. I didn't think people would fall for new lies so quickly though, it's scary.
There is literally no way to look at the current gender movement as anything but a religion. It's a blind belief that goes against reality and science that can't be questioned or you're an evil terf
"sinner". Just like buddhism you don't need a god to worship and instead strive to be the "true version" of what your "soul" tells you to be.
Final samefag for now.
There's some issues with this dataset. People born in 1933 and earlier are all grouped together under that birth year, and there's bizarrely high reported rates of being "transgender/non-binary." I don't have the number right now, but if I remember correctly, it was around 20%, so I'm chalking that up to an artifact of bad data collection or management or something.
There's also a serious lack of young adults answering the survey. There were 4-5x as many answers per birth year for people born in the 40's-80's than there were per birth year for people born in the late 90's. Out of the entire pool of respondents, about 1.0% were binary trans (see official government infographic), but this calculation was made without controlling for the fact that there were disproportionately few young respondents, who are disproportionately likely to be trans.

I know picrel is wrong but I’ve always had trouble putting a coherent argument together because that’s just not my strong suit. I get too flustered and annoyed and I feel it on the tip of my tongue but it’s like I have brain fog. Anons, how do I argue against this shit. I need a cheat sheet.

They are a special kind of evil. If every other letter in the alphabet people is uncomfortable but you, maybe it’s you that is the problem.
First, don't argue with troons because they fetishize any female attention. They'll say you're jealous or something. Second, they think any woman above 5'3 who doesn't have D cup breasts, huge eyes, tiny nose, and other very stereotypical characteristics are men. Although they also argue you can't tell if a woman is trans even though they already have listed a huge list on tips to help them do just that.
So they're both saying trans women are no different than real women while also saying there are "women who could be trans" as in, they do realize that even if those women have masculine characteristics, they definitely aren't trans. Also most people don't stare at women and them trying to figure out if someone is trans would be considered transphobic, even.

Statistics Canada released the results for the 2021 census recently. There's some interesting (and predictable) stuff in there, like that people who identify as non-binary are more likely to live downtown in highly-populated cities, skew younger, and suffer from mental illness.
On their website it says, quote:
"Generation Z was born in the Internet age, and millennials came of age during a time when the Internet was changing the way we gather and process information. The Internet, along with social media and web-connected personal devices, may have contributed to the increasing awareness of gender diversity—especially among younger generations—by providing transgender and non-binary individuals with virtual support communities."
What a gentle way of talking about it…

The previous pic is just the top cities for the amount of nbs living downtown. The census also says that a higher than average amount of trans and nonbinary people live in british columbia.

That said, Nova Scotia had the highest.
I'm intrigued by Nunavut having the lowest amount while the Yukon has one of the highest. Seems random.

https://www.smh.com.au/national/inclusive-language-risks-dehumanising-women-top-researchers-argue-20220126-p59red.html>Breastfeeding community educator Jacquie Ducat said she did not take issue with such language changing as she realises desexed terminology still includes her.
Well, yeah, of course "non-men" includes us, but that's not the point. (Correct me if wrong.) I know I menstruate, have a uterus, could give birth, am not a man, etc. I don't feel excluded by that language.
I feel dehumanized by that language. That language rejects my very personhood. I don't get to be a "mother" anymore, I'm a "breastfeeder" or "birth-giver." You know, like a fucking dairy cow.
This kind of shit is what they're calling us in the scientific and medical literature. There's no way this won't have an impact on the treatment we get from the medical professionals who are being trained currently. They'll see us as talking versions of the corpses they practiced procedures on.

Nonnas, tinfoil time but I can't shake the theory: all the troon encouragement is some kind of psyop that started after the Women's March. There were pornsick AGPs before that, but it's exploded since then, pushed on easily infiltrated online spaces like 4chan and reddit. Somebody saw Women uniting as a political class for the first time in ages and decided to break it apart by introducing dissidents by manipulating men.
Since then enough of them have trooned out it's become self sustaining and is working better than they could have hoped.
Like I said, it's tinfoil, but the same thing happened with Occupy and idpol groups "showing up" to derail it.

Idk where this goes, but I loved it so much, I needed to share.
The absolute state, that's surprisingly a lot>>5018
You want them to go with the MacKay or MacDonald?
Just watched this video by a Chinese YouTuber who mostly talks about tech. There are a lot of parallels to how TiMs describe gender dysphoria in her experience. The tl;dw is that she was raised and treated as a boy because of China's one child policy, but she was never tomboyish and it didn't feel right (she doesn't blame her parents for it, and doesn't want them to be bashed). She's also a lesbian. She always admired hyperfeminine women, and as she grew older, she leaned heavily into looking/feeling as feminine as possible. She feels very out of place and depressed in conservative clothing, and has a harshly negative reaction to being seen as "boyish" in appearance. She doesn't even go by her birthname or show childhood photos because she doesn't see that person as her anymore. She maintains that she and other high femmes don't present the way they do for male attention or for sexual gratification, but others have a hard time understanding it, so explaining is hard. Her breast implants are actually prosthetics, which she describes as "gender-affirming top surgery", and she states that many lesbians in Asia get top surgery to remove their breasts for the same reasons, hers is just the other way around. She describes her way of dressing as a "10 year old's idea of a sexy lady" (hence the cutesy touches to her outfits), and though it can give a bad first impression, she's not hurting anyone, despite having "some glitches" in her gender expression
What do you guys think? My first thought was "Lying troon" when she brought in the dead name aspect and admitted she didn't even have breasts before going in for prosthetics (she claims many Chinese women don't) but she doesn't read as male to me, and she has a very butch Uyghur girlfriend, so I don't know. She said she supports anyone who's "trying to be their real self" (aka trans people) and that many people must have had it "much harder than her", but I can't help but feel that she might be heavily projecting her own experience onto TiMs. Like, in theory, it's similar, but what's the relation between a traumatized girl who was raised as a boy growing up leaning into all the things she was denied as an adult (whether it might be over the top or not), and a western boy who's (at most) a little wimpier than the other boys, then grows up, fries his brain on porn and tries to live out a literal porno fantasy of what he thinks a woman is? It's annoying to think of AGP transbians who are also into tech/programming being like "Omg she is literally me". It's sad to me that there might be a significant amount of actual women with this very particular, hyper-specific experience of being forced to live as male, but it's still white men with fetishes who get heralded as "the face" of it

These people are so annoying. My god. She's 20 too.
>>5256>though it can give a bad first impression, she's not hurting anyone
Except she is. I'd in fact argue she's hurting herself the most because as you say she's >a traumatized girl who was raised as a boy growing up leaning into all the things she was denied as an adult
I don't see her coping with this by having surgery to physically turn herself into a living sex doll as healthy. If she wanted to heavily lean into stereotypical feminine expressions like dresses, makeup and painted nails, that would be one thing, but why is her concept of femininity so sexualized? Why can't she have just accepted her natural body and dressed girly but not pornographically? There is clearly more going on here than only being treated as a boy when she was little. I don't think she should be diminished for how she dresses, but obviously she knew the sort of objectification and male attention she would garner by presenting herself this way. She seems like she's in denial about her real reasons to me.

reminds me of what happened to Joe Hawley, this incident happened over a year ago but its still perfect example of why you can't ever win with TRAs, Joe Hawley the former frontman of the 2000's Indie pop rock band Tally Hall(the one's that made the Ruler of Everything song) got DM'd by an underaged nb Ayden who asked him if he could put his pronouns in his bio, he politely refused and got into argument regarding non-binaryism and pronouns and in this conversation his "problematic
" views were revealed
see like most normie libs he thinks trans people are "valid
" and believes Transphobia is real, but he doesn't buy into that Idea that anyone can be non-binary, he also believes that children don't have the mental capacity to know if their trans or not and shouldn't allowed on hormones and referred to some "trans affirming" surgeries as multination(which they are) and that got him cancelled, like the whole of woke twitter fucking hates his guts now for views that aren't even remotely offensive and likely what the average normie lib believes in

I was wondering if someone could explain to me in detail why exactly MtFs are so attracted to lesbian. Is it really a porn induced fixation? or is it also that they dont want a typical dominant male position in the relationship because they are too weak to be someones rock to rely on.
just confuses me becausse lesbian relationships do have butch/femme dynamics but thats not always the case. ive known butches to date and marry and femmes to date and marry.
i just dont understand why exactly it is lesbianism that they are drawn to. holy grail of "nobody stuck her dick in her" kinda possessive fixation? is it truly the most unattainable thing for a guy and their drive to deserve and aquire everything driving them to do so? i am just so desperate to understand nonnies

My autism can't tell if this is a humble brag or a joke after the "totally cool Stacy" part. Anyone else find ovarit difficult to enjoy because it's filled with grifters and 40yo pickmes?
It’s a few things off the top of my head, but I can deep dive if you want.
To start men fetish lesbians because they view them as unattainable and untarnished women. They’ve in their heads never been with or belonged to another man so they can get their virgin fetish and weird power leveling from that. Because sex between two women could never “be real sex.”
Porn pushes lesbians like crazy so they typically end up developing a full on fetish manipulating their sexuality into more severe obsessions. Porn addicts also lower their own sensitivity, sperm counts and give themselves Eds and require more stimulation seeking out more severe forms of their fetishes like men raping lesbians and conversion porn. Or tranny and lesbian porn etc.
It’s also a validation thing like they’ve tricked the truest of terfs and women and it makes them better than the other trannies. Etc.

This is from _rational_ wikipedia. Idk how rational it is to just say something is false without telling the reader what is correct then. Funnily enough the rational wiki seems to think otherkin is bullshit but trannies and sex changing over the course of a human's life is totally possible and real.
