Right on Jessica

Just a short note because I read something that made such a good point it needs to be repeated.  Over at Bilerico Jessica wrote a reply to Jillian Weiss about Irish law and a recent “transgender” case. My take is that once again an academic type is pushing transgender dogma, spinning a story about transsexual into transgender silliness as usual. It’s nice to see that other people spot the sleight of hand as well.

I cannot escape the conclusion that “melting pot,” the urge to bring everyone down to size, is part of the declaration of the transgender ideology, that we must all be the same identity to seek the same goals with its destructive corollary, if you have something more we will knock you down to size so you have to work with us or die.

Increasing numbers of transsexual people/people of transsexual history refuse this, what I have taken to call, transsexual wager; there response is, we did it for ourselves, and you, in the past; if you refuse this, we will do it for ourselves in the future; you’re on your own.

There has been a concerted effort by TG true believers to recast all the work done by transsexual individuals in the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s as being the efforts of transgender pioneers when of course transgender wasn’t even a silly made-up twinkle in someones eye before the 90’s. They’ve also decried anyone who rejects these “transgender” victories as spitting in the face of all our transgender foremothers. This is simply propaganda and it’s high time it was rejected. Right on Jessica! 🙂

    When I transitioned the last thing a transgender ID’ed person wanted was to find they were transsexual. That meant losing family, friends, jobs, and having to jump all those hoops to get letters for hormones and surgery and undergo forced psychotherapy. Some time in the mid to late 90’s that changed and it was chic to be transsexual because it was “medically legitimate”.

    It followed the change in the talk shows from the 80’s and 90’s where transsexuals were the staple of sweeps weeks (when the ratings came out) and due to those shows the public came to a general understanding of transsexuality and acceptance. Of course when that happened, transsexuals were no longer “weird” enough for sweeps weeks so around the mid 90’s they were replaced by the crossdressing husband/parent and the screaming street queens. The more man in a dress the better. Geraldo started doing “club kid” gender benders and Jerry Springer discovered his audience grew the more freak show his show became. Believe it or not Springer had done a lot of very good shows on transsexuality before this when his talk show actually was a talk show.

    Because of my background in sociology, I was fascinated by the process and still have a lot of video tapes of a good sampling of these talk shows.

    Well we all know what happened…..The issue now is what can we do about it?
    If these guys in frocks have their way, such gains as we have made could easily be lost.
    In places like this we are “preachin’ to the choir”…The people that we need to influence are, in the first instance, the legislators and in the second, the public who are such an influence on the politicians.
    Society doesn’t run on logic or truth, it runs on opinions.

    Part of changing the course of events is recognizing people who are engaging the conversation. Everything begins with mustering support among the afflicted people and showing them that they are not alone. The more blogs and comments, the more the cracks in the TG facade appear. Remember, it wasn’t too long ago that questioning any bit of any TG’s dogma was met with unbridled fury. These days not only are the tenets of transgenderism under attack from women of history like us, but they are also finally being rejected by the gays and lesbians who used to give them aid and comfort.

    We have come a long way from where we were even a year ago. And this is just the initial stages of people forming an identity separate from the rotting carcass of TG dogma. The collapse is inevitable, we shouldn’t be worried about that. What’s important is damage control and taking over the discourse when the TG’s are finally discredited enough that the laws stop being proposed. Then we have a situation like before where people who transition worked quietly with their doctors and legislators to iron out any issues remaining in the law. It may take a few years for the stench to clear but in the end we’ll be back to reality.

    Indeed, the word transgender was not coined for several years and even transsexual was as rare as hens teeth. In fact I thought I was the only one in the world so afflicted.

    I can’t help admiring the confidence shown by those who perceive a reticence on the part of TGdom but it all seems just a bit too glib for me . I think there is yet a long way to go … I like the rallying call though …Keep it up

    Incidentally, I have just been getting on with life for a while my time is too precious to spend all of it banging heads with the deluded.
