I don’t respect labels. I find them silly and useless. Having arguments about labels is silly and useless. It doesn’t matter what label you use, reality is independent of the propaganda we use to dress it up.
The post-modern trend that produced transgender is coming to a close. The idea that you can change reality by changing perception was once celebrated in academia. It was also once vilified as a lie. These are societal trends, yet reality stands above and beyond them.
Post modernism, transgender in this case, does not respect reality. It uses words with real meaning, such as transsexual, in any way it sees fit. So no, I don’t agree with the idea that everyone here is necessarily transsexual. You cannot create reality by changing the label you apply to yourself. You cannot change reality by consensus.
This is the central point that needs to be made to those who believe in transgenderism. Transsexual is a condition that exists at birth. It is a word that describes reality, it does not create it. You are either born with the condition, or you were not.
If you think it is a privilege to be transsexual (on that mythical Kinsey-like scale of Harry Benjamin’s) and use that as a justification for your behavior, you are obviously not transsexual. Nobody born with a birth defect thinks it is a good thing.
I’ve had enough spin from the transgender. This isn’t an argument of “sides”. The purpose of those shoving transgender down our throats is to own our identity. Transsexual is a real birth condition, it can’t be owned in that sense the transgender tend to think. They do, however, understand we can be used for their own ends if they can browbeat us into submission.
It is an act of coercive political violence for the transgenderists to dictate terms to us. I don’t like men pushing me around, and those who “identify” as transgender retain their male privilege, albeit in a reduced capacity with regard other men. They may say they don’t have privilege, but everything they do gives the lie to that.
These men need to shut up and piss off when it comes to women’s issues.
