Tactics and Flaws of the Transgender Ideology + Self-ID Movement

Growing up, I was confused. You see, I was very different from most of my girl-friends. At least, I thought I was. I was flat-chested, had really big feet & hands and a really low voice. I hated everything “girly.” I didn’t want to wear dresses or have my hair curled.

I loathed the fact that I would eventually start menstruating. I didn’t want to shave. I had strange, but nice, feelings for some of the girls I was friends with. I had already disassociated from my body because of a male cousin deciding to molest me at a very young age, but it was more than that. I hated my body. I hated the things that I ‘had’ to wear and do and endure, and this all started early on. It’s basically all I remember about my feelings toward my body and the expectations of me based on my biological sex.

Even as a young girl, I already knew what being a female meant, and I knew ‘it’ wasn’t good. At least, not within this society. Knowing what I was in for as a girl and a woman made me uncomfortable and embarrassed. It made me angry.

I remember my mom joking about how they (my parents) “thought I was going to be a boy,” but got surprised, and that just added to this growing feeling in my head that I was actually meant to be born a boy.

I didn’t realise it then, but I was experiencing body dysmorphia. It wasn’t just about my breasts, uterus and vagina, though. I obsessively loathed my nose, my stomach, my skin colour, my hair, my freckles, the size of my feet and hands, my voice and so much more. I was traumatised and already suffering from PTSD and obvious low-self esteem. I was mentally and emotionally unwell and needed mental health assistance.

If I was growing up now, I’d be transgender….

My mom would be pressured by peers, social media, media and neglectful medical “professionals” to put me on prescription drugs to alter my body chemistry and to prevent natural, imperative, biological cycles from occurring in my body. Her and I would have the red carpet rolled out for us as we frolicked to day surgery for me to permanently alter, and possibly even mutilate, my body. [1]

I wouldn’t be able to legally vote, drink alcohol, smoke, drive, have sex or travel alone (and rightfully so), but I’d have the authority to mutilate my body and permanently alter my life. Makes total sense! (sarcasm /off)

Hit the pause button….

There are reasons why children aren’t allowed to do certain things or make certain decisions for themselves. There are extremely crucial and important reasons why children have adults to look after them, guide them and make decisions for them. It isn’t an “invasion of privacy” or an “invalidation of their identity.”

It’s reasonable and logical to understand that children need to develop into a teenager, and then to an adult. It’s sensible to understand that the brain must have an appropriate amount of time to develop. It’s rational and sane to understand, no matter how confident a child is with a decision they’ve made, that time, environment, and a thousand other potential factors will have an impact on their thoughts, feelings, beliefs and desires. That is life.

As an adult I have finally starting coming to terms with my body and my biological sex. As an adult, I understand and realise that what goes on in my head can feel very real at times, but it’s still only in my head. As an adult, I’m so glad that I did not grow up amidst the madness that is transgender ideology.

What I haven’t come to terms with is the systemic oppression that the female sex class is still enduring. [2]

What I cannot come to terms with is the madness occurring on social and political levels surrounding transgender ideology.

Material reality vs. ideology….

I never imagined that I would be attacked or vilified for knowing that I am a female and that I have a female reproductive system. I never thought the day would come when “woman” would be an offensive word.

The transgender movement denies the truth, but it also denies reality. “Truth” is often subjective and one person’s truth may not be the next person’s truth. However, reality just is.

They proclaim that your ‘gender’ is “assigned” at birth. That is not true. Sex is observed and recorded. I wonder if the parents of the estimated 23 million aborted female foetuses (mainly from Asia) were confused about the sex of the foetus? I wonder if the high number of female infants being murdered (due to being valued less than boys) just needed a way to verbalise that they identified as boys, not girls? [3]

They say that women discussing issues relating to their vaginas is “transphobic” by “excluding trans women,” but men don’t have a cervix, uterus, ovaries, Fallopian tubes or a vagina. Women do, and we’ve had it up to here (*points to the sky*) with men trying to control what we do, how we do it and how we speak about, and organise around, issues that affect us.

How did we even get to this point?…

I’ll admit, I honestly thought the ‘panic’ over the trans movement was uncalled for. That is, until I saw hard fought for rights being rolled back for women. That is, until I saw women’s bathrooms disappearing while men’s remained. That is, until I was the subject of a witch hunt led by women that I called my friends for years.

Women that know I have spent years leading the charge for inclusive spaces in our local area, and not just online where it’s f’ing easy. I took on overwhelming amounts of stress, anxiety, harassment and bullying, from mostly men, to fight for safe and inclusive activist spaces, safe nightclubs and more.

These women witnessed me being pushed to the brink of my own sanity to fight for everyone’s rights. I faced-up to businesses, organisations and activists to fight for justice. I exposed the rapists lurking around our spaces and I called out the racists, sexists, homophobes, transphobes and bigots in our spaces. I have invested thousands of hours running campaigns, protests & rallies and have dedicated my time to helping so many different individuals within my community.

Yet, this pack of ravenous women had the audacity to target me, intimidate me and harass me. They had the audacity to recruit people in their hate campaign; their witch hunt. They had the audacity to say that what I think and believe about myself is not true and that it is bad and wrong. How dare they?!

These women are known as trans-rights activists (TRA’s) and they don’t believe women have the right to sex-segregated spaces or sports. [4] These are women that don’t believe women have the right to see medical professionals that are women. These are women that have the audacity to call themselves feminists.

It’s never enough….

It isn’t enough to keep track of and use preferred pronouns. It isn’t enough to refer to them by their new name. It isn’t enough that they already have the exact same rights that their counterparts have. Oh, goodness no. They want more. They want you to speak their language. They want you to think their thoughts. They want you to believe everything they believe.

Does it matter that their beliefs invalidate your existence?

Not to them, it doesn’t.

Does it matter that they deny your truth?

Not to them, it doesn’t.

Yet, that is why they swarm and attack. That is why they recruit people into their campaigns of hate and harassment. Because you won’t accept their truth. You won’t say the words they want you to say. The words they DEMAND that you say.

You won’t forget your reality and you won’t forget historical fact or the axis of oppression you are bound to by birth, and that makes you a monster.

What’s worse? They don’t stop there. They expect people to omit words and definitions from their language and believe & think exactly how they are told to. If you don’t do it, they will actively try to harm you.

1) Force: coercion or compulsion, especially with the use or threat of violence.

2) Coercion: the action or practice of persuading someone to do something by using force or threats.

3) Compulsion: the action or state of forcing or being forced to do something

These are the main tactics of the transgender movement.

They’ll start with manipulation, guilt and condescending tones. If that doesn’t make you crumble and start repeating the magic soundbites, they’ll move on to swearing, name calling, intimidation and veiled threats. The recruitment has already begun behind the scene, and you’ll soon be bombarded with comments and messages and physical confrontations, all demanding answers from you. You are now being harassed.

They don’t give thought to a lot….

Not the young girls having their clits cut off. [5] Not the girls starting their periods that desperately want privacy in the bathroom at school. Not the females around the world that don’t have access to abortion care. Not the women in sports that we had to fight to be able to participate in for decades, all to have men invade that space, too. [6] Not the army of ex-sex workers that want nothing more than to see the ‘industry’ shut down on every level and for women everywhere to be liberated. [7] They don’t give thought to the hundreds of thousands of women fleeing abuse that desperately need a safe space. No. This crowd does not give thought to a lot.

When was the last time this crowd picked up a lexicon?

I’m a woman. A woman is (*looks in lexicon*) an adult human female. *random shouting* “OH MY GOD! TERF! TERF! PUNCH THE TERF!”

A-b-s-u-r-d-i-t-y!

The words “girl“ and “woman” are not representative of imaginary things. Contrary to what some say, girls and women aren’t formless blobs. Those words exist for necessary reasons. Those words are how we verbally differentiate or specify between young and older members of the female sex class, just like “boy” and “man” for the male sex class. How and when did definitions become so trivial and offensive?

Facts still remain regardless of how persistent and aggressive this movement is. The audacity of this crowd to think they somehow have the power or authority to command to people what they are allowed to say, think and believe is beyond me, honestly, and it wreaks of authoritarianism.

The forgotten ones….

There are many groups of people that are being forgotten within ‘discussions’ (see: verbal attacks) with trans rights activists, and within the ideology as a whole. First and foremost – females. We are quite literally having our rights stripped from us around the world. We haven’t even achieved equitable rights for all girls and women, yet, our rights are being taken away. Rape shelters and domestic violence refuges are being vandalised and defunded because they refuse to accept “transwomen” into their facilities. [8] Let me rephrase that for you. Rape shelters and domestic violence refuges are being vandalised and defunded because they refuse to accept men into their facilities.

The staff at the shelters and refuges are protecting the hard fought for rights of traumatised women that are victims of rape and physical abuse, and many times, their children, too. We have the right to sex-segregated services and facilities! We need that right. How could anyone try and take that away from us? How can women be a part of this?

Another group of people that are forgotten are lesbians. A lesbian is a same-sex attracted female human being. One of the many problems with “self-identification” is this new and disturbing idea that men can be lesbians. The idea is, if a woman identifies as a man, the woman can be with another woman in a lesbian relationship (which it actually is) but ‘he’ is a ‘man.’ Yes. They believe all of this. The flip side of this is, if a man identifies as a woman, he can now be with a woman (in what is actually a heterosexual relationship) and call himself, sorry – ‘herself’ – a lesbian.

Yep…..take a minute, if you need to. It’s a lot to take in.

Now, how does this have a negative impact on lesbians? I know a lot of radical feminist lesbians that share personal testimony to how often men say things like “maybe you just haven’t had the right dick yet,” and how often they are verbally and sexually harassed, and sadly, many times they are assaulted and/or raped in order to “convert” them from loving only biological women. The idea of a woman that doesn’t need a man for anything, not even for basic sexual pleasure, is extremely threatening to men in general. Lesbians are too often met with hostility, and far worse, simply for who they love and want to have sex with, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. [9]

The people and issues being overlooked within the transgender ideology movement go on and on. Children that need access to genuine and effective mental health resources that, instead, are sexualised and/or put on a path of body mutilation.

The very people at the core of this ideological movement are being overlooked!

So many people grow up with body dysmorphia, low self-esteem, warped sense of self, dissociation and other serious and traumatic mental health issues. So many girls just do not want to deal with being female. I fully believe that we have the knowledge of our foremothers in our genes and in our bones. We know, straight out of the womb, what our life will be like. We carry that generational trauma within us. Is it any wonder that so many young girls would elect to ‘be’ a boy?

Does anyone else ever stop to wonder why so many parents are jumping on board with this? Could it be, just maybe, that it’s easier to pretend they have a daughter, rather than a feminine son that wants to wear dresses and vice versa?

Toxic male standards create pressure for boys, too, and many of them do not want to perform the assumed stereotypes that come with being a male.

Feminists have been working for decades to smash the sex-based stereotypes that create that pressure for girls and women. Gay men have been smashing gender norms for decades. Rock gods gave us “gender fluidity” in the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s, but society, in general, just hasn’t let go of gender expectations & stereotypes yet. So I sympathise with parents of children that are confused, lost and feeling empty, but surgeries, body altering drugs and jumping on the bandwagon of harmful ideologies are not the answers. The core issues for these children are not being properly addressed.

Furthermore, the long-term consequences and side effects of blocking puberty have not been fully explored and are not fully known or understood. [10]

Who is looking after the longterm health and well-being of individuals seeking gender affirmation?

The ‘T’ in LGBT….

Remember, there is an important difference between a transsexual person and a transgender person. The transgender movement insists you only need to feel like a man/woman/neither in order to be a man/woman/neither. Nothing more than an idea and suddenly…BOOP! You’re not what you were born as.

Transsexuals are men or women that go through physical and chemical changes (hormone replacement therapy, surgeries) in order to look and be more like the sex they are transitioning to. Yes. That’s where “trans,” or, the ‘T’, comes from; transition.

It concerns me that the transgender movement has seemingly, and in their minds, erased the existence of real human beings that have extremely specific medical and social needs. Needs that, I dare say, are not being effectively met within the constraints of our current medical systems and policies. These are men and women with unnatural amounts of hormones in their bodies and, many times, with unique post-surgery genitalia. [1]

In online transsexual spaces, transsexual women (biologically male) are almost entirely free from misconceptions or delusions about the ability to change their biological sex. They know they cannot change sex. What they can do, and are doing, is changing their secondary sex characteristics. I’ll reiterate that this creates extremely unique medical needs which are not the same as either men or women, and they deserve spaces and systems that recognise those needs and address them effectively and civilly. There are also many transsexual people that find they need compassionate mental health support in relation to their decision to permanently change their body. [11]

Transgender people are undermining everything about transsexuals, their needs and their history of oppression that led to being a part of the LGBT community. They are turning people against actual trans people.

Here’s just one example:

While I agree with this, it’s only partially true. Transsexuals are not the ones leading this attack, and that is what the ‘T’ stands for. Not transgender.

Look, feminists are not wishing harm on anyone. We are not smashing windows or punching and harassing trans people. Feminists just want to protect and advocate for the rights of girls and women.

That is what feminism is for.

Females – that is who feminism is for.

UN Women…we need to talk.

Written by A. Lìen

3/6/2020


I want to discuss UN Women and the hypocrisy that is scattered all over their website and within their principles.

From their website:

“UN Women is the UN organization dedicated to gender equality and the empowerment of women. A global champion for women and girls, UN Women was established to accelerate progress on meeting their needs worldwide.” [1]

Now, this sounds great! Unless, of course, they don’t know how to define what a “woman” is. But, this is the UN! Surely they understand biological fact, right? Well, I wouldn’t be so sure if I were you.

In their “Twelve small actions with big impact for Generation Equality” published to their website on February 25, 2020, there is some concerning language being used, as well as disturbing ideologies being endorsed.

The third “action” they list is:

“3. Reject the binary”

“Repeat after me: It’s humankind. Not mankind.

It might not seem like a big deal, but terms such as “male or female” and “women or men” exclude non-binary and intersex people who don’t fall into any of these categories. [2] Diverse gender identities have always existed in every culture, and ensuring the rights of transgender, genderqueer, non-binary individuals and more—who often face horrifying violence and discrimination across the world—is an inherent part of gender equality. (Generation Equality pro tip: Check out the ‘Genderbread Person’ to learn the difference between sex, gender, gender identity and gender expression).

Everyday language plays a huge role in breaking gender stereotypes and rejecting the binary of “male and female”. Instead of using phrases like “ladies and gentlemen” or “boys and girls”, swap in a gender-neutral term like “folks,” “children,” or “y’all.” These little changes can go a long way toward shifting cultural perceptions of gender.

Don’t assume you know someone’s pronoun or gender. One way to open up a conversation is to give your own: include your pronouns when you introduce yourself or add them to your email signature or your social media profiles. Gender pronouns include: she/her, he/him, they/them, ze/zir, ze/hir, xe/zem, and zie/hir, xe/xem, and ey/em.

When referring to a person using the pronouns, gender and name that they use to identify themselves, do not refer to or reveal a person’s sexual orientation, gender identity or intersex status without their consent.” [3]

Ok. So, some people will be thinking “what’s wrong with that?” [4]

Others will be thinking “what the hell are they on about?”

On the surface, there’s nothing “wrong” with referring to people how they prefer, but let’s dig deeper into this “action” and what they’re really saying.

They’ve made some outrageous claims that “transgender” people and “non-binary” people are at risk of “horrifying violence and discrimination across the world.”

Hmm….give me a minute. I’m thinking…..hmm.

Did I miss the tragic non-binary genocide of 1710?

Perhaps I am not aware of the wars that have plagued the country of transgender folks? (Look at that! Using that “gender neutral” language already!)

Has my educational history not provided me with the full details of the systemic oppression that 10-25 year olds with body dysmorphia, along with a random supply of grown men, have endured and suffered through for centuries?

Where is this horrifying violence and discrimination? Where exactly is it happening? The refusal from the majority of society to accept the ideological nonsense being spewed is NOT discrimination or oppression. It’s a disagreement.

Oddly enough, the members of the LGBT community that are at the highest risk of violence aren’t even mentioned in this “action” from UN Women.[See: lesbians – female, same sex attracted, humans. Also see: transsexuals – males/females that have physically and medically transitioned their body to minimise secondary sex characteristics of their biological sex, and possibly maximise secondary sex characteristics of the opposite sex]. Neither is the class of people at the absolute highest risk of violence – females.

Furthermore, it may not seem like a big deal, but erasing words like “male,” “female,” and phrases like “boys and girls” is restricting the ability of half of the worlds population to discuss and organise around issues that affect us (girls and women) uniquely and differently from issues that affect boys and men. We are different, but we all deserve to be treated equitably.

Self-ID is dangerous

Nothing more than a feeling and boop! You’re a woman, or a man, or neither! Isn’t that great? In fact, you don’t actually need to ‘feel’ anything at all! You can just say the words “I identify as a girl/woman,” or, “I identify as a boy/man,” and you’re done! You have now magically, and against every fact known to humankind, changed your biological sex! Wasn’t that easy? (never mind the fact that this ideological movement insists biological sex isn’t real. *psst* It kind of falls apart if you ask questions, so just hush and believe it. *nervous laugh*)

Ok. That’s enough! Stop the madness! Women have worked for centuries to have issues specific to girls & women acknowledged and addressed, and now we are being told “never mind,” basically. It was especially nauseating to see this on the UN Women’s website, just a scroll or two underneath the above mentioned action plan for gender equality.

“Latest news

05/03/2020 Press release: Ahead of International Women´s Day, new UN Women report warns that progress towards gender equality is lagging and hard-fought gains are under threat [5]

Yes, and you are a part of that threat, UN Women! Entertaining gender ideology is a growing threat to girls & women’s rights. Self-ID is harming girls and women (and boys and men) right now; in schools, crisis shelters, refuges, clinics, prisons and mental health facilities. [6]

UN Women clearly understand who they exist to represent and advocate for, which is proven through their repeated use of the words/phrase “girls and women” across their website. [7]

Yet, they force gender & self-ID ideology into their website and, therefore, into their policies and principles. Why entertain something that they know isn’t true?

In another press release, UN Women again acknowledge that girls and women are still discriminated against, and that the gains regarding our rights are not enough, yet they encourage blurring of the lines between the sexes.

“Tuesday, March 3, 2020

NEW YORK, 4 March 2020 – More girls are going to school and staying in school than ever before, but remarkable gains in education have made little headway in helping shape a more equal, less violent environment for girls, UNICEF, Plan International and UN Women warned today in a new report.” [8]

It gets worse for girls and women, but again, who are we even talking about if the words “girls and women” are bad? If biological sex isn’t real and is just a social construct, who are girls and women?

“Yet, violence against women and girls is still common. In 2016, for example, women and girls accounted for 70 per cent of detected trafficking victims globally, most for sexual exploitation. An astonishing 1 in every 20 girls aged 15-19 – around 13 million – has experienced rape in their lifetimes, one of the most violent forms of sexual abuse women and girls can suffer.”

I wonder if the sick fucks that are trafficking all of those girls and women for sexual exploitation are confused about what sex the girls and women are? I wonder if self-ID would help the victims of the sex trafficking trade? Surely they can just ‘opt out’ with a simple acknowledgment of being the opposite sex, right? Or perhaps the gender ideology movement wreaks of privilege.

It doesn’t stop there

I wish it did, but it doesn’t. The twelfth action mentioned in the UN Women’s “Twelve small actions with big impact for Generation Equality” is:

“12. Respect the choices of others”

Every person has the right to make decisions about their body, well-being, family and future.

When someone’s choices make you uncomfortable, ask yourself why. Examine the biases that may be driving your reaction and consider the circumstances that make their life different from yours. Listen to their reasoning.

It’s often hard to understand a choice that you’ve never had to make. Take it upon yourself to learn and think critically about the situations of others.” [3]

STOP!!

What I’m about to write is extremely important!

If someone makes you uncomfortable, it is FOR A REASON! That reason *could* be based in ignorance and/or certain negative parts of social-conditioning , but it could also be your instincts telling you something is wrong, unsafe or against what you stand for. You do not have to agree with everyone. Everyone will not agree with you. This is normal and healthy. Listen to your instincts. Self-examine if you wish, and try to determine where your feelings and potential judgements are coming from, but don’t ever feel that you have to be uncomfortable to appease others.

UN Women should honestly be ashamed of the way they have nonchalantly undermined consent and the art & necessity of listening to your ‘gut’. Following our instincts can often save us from unwanted stress, negative attention and sometimes it can even save our lives.

Your comfort matters!

How about the organisations, groups, professionals and other relevant authority figures within our society stop fuelling the very problem they exist to address and nullify? Male violence (sexual and physical) against women and children is a worldwide problem. Discrimination against girls and women is a worldwide problem.

The UN Women, and other similar organisations and officials, have a responsibility and a duty of care to women and girls. That duty of care and the associated responsibilities must be taken seriously! Transgender & self-ID ideology not only erodes girls and women’s rights, but the associated and seemingly necessary steps of gender affirmation are physically and mentally traumatising girls, women and boys and men. Equally as traumatising are the regrets that many trans people have about undergoing gender affirmation surgery, and the ideology itself, when they “de-transition.” [9]

Enough is enough.

Respect our existence or expect our resistance.

Additional thoughts from the author –

“Affirm” does not mean to confirm

The definition of affirm is:
offer (someone) emotional support or encouragement

Where in that definition does it say that “gender affirming” must include confirming what someone thinks about their self, then putting them on hormone replacement therapy and/or mutilating a persons body? [10]

What’s actually going on here? How on earth is it ok to allow (yes, I said allow) children to make life altering decisions about their bodies and their futures?

It isn’t!

As a society, we understand that children and teenagers are not fully equipped to make certain decisions, which is why we have laws that restrict what children and teenagers can do (voting age, drinking age, legal smoking age, age of consent etc.).

Feminism has been working to smash gender stereotypes and gender conformity for decades

Bending gender “norms” and being non-gender-conforming isn’t a new thing. That’s a major reason that feminism exists; to erase gender-based expectations and discrimination (for girls and women, but it’s an added bonus that it highlights and exposed gender-based expectations for boys and men, too). Girls and women are systemically oppressed through what is commonly referred to as “gender.”

“Gender was, is and will always be a social construct. A fiction, born in an oppressive patriarchal imagination, of how women and men are supposed to act, dress, feel, think. “Gender” changes over time and it changes from culture to culture. What is considered “feminine” in one culture, may not be so in another. What was considered “masculine” 100 years ago, may not be so now.

Today, reinforced by the capitalist system to increase its profits, by the corporate media such as Facebook or Twitter, as well as the medical establishment, “gender” is often conflated with “sex”, and is described as “innate” or “inherent”.

Very few of our “decision-makers” – people in power – understand what gender actually is, the history of this term, and how – through the Anglo-Centric, colonial imposition – it became written into common vocabulary and legislation.

Partly because of this we are now in a situation of legal confusion, where our medical forms, job applications, and even legal instruments, routinely use “social construct” when they mean “your sex”.

No one is born with “gender”. Unless you are religious believer – which you are perfectly entitled to be – determining someone’s “gender” is as possible as determining someone’s ‘soul’.” [11]

Everything from women’s fashion & accessories to beauty standards & ageist limitations to the social expectations of birthing children; the world is designed to work against females and for males. (I want to note here that the world is also designed for able-bodied people and designed to work against disabled people)

Most people would probably agree that no one should be held down or held back by ‘gendered’ expectations and ‘standards.’ However, only the female sex class has been wholly and systemically discriminated against and oppressed because of our biological sex traits and “gender.”

We’ve been treated as secondary citizens by men throughout our entire existence because of biological differences between men and women. Height, weight, bone structure, heart size, muscle, tone and so many other biological differences between us, none of which mean girls and women are lesser beings than boys and men.

You can be a masculine girl/woman.

You can be a feminine boy/man.

“Gender” is a social construct, but biological sex is not.

You do not have to change your body, your name or your “identity” to say “fuck you” to the expectations that are hurled at you by your parents, teachers, friends, advertisements and the hundreds of other sources of manipulative social conditioning that now exist.

Most importantly, being a woman is not a feeling or an identity, and it isn’t “assigned”

Two of the many acronyms, phrases and terms that the gender ideology movement has produced are “AFAB” and “AMAB.” These stand for “assigned female at birth” and “assigned male at birth.”

I honestly only have one thing to say about that….

Sex is observed and recorded, not assigned, and it isn’t a feeling or an identity. Hence why millions of female foetuses are aborted every year, predominantly in Asia, and why female infanticide happens at much higher rates than male infanticide, predominantly in Asia. [12]

Being a woman is NOT a “feeling” or an “identity.” It is not psychological. It is physiological. Womanhood, femaleness, is biological.

UN Women – are they breaking a treaty by encouraging transgender ideology?
