Anti-Porn Feminists

Voltaire

I have largely avoided writing about trans issues on this blog. There are two reasons for this, the first is that, although this is a radical feminist blog, I want it to be available to everyone as an anti-porn resource, and writing about trans issues would just have been a confusing diversion to anyone who was uninitiated into what was, until fairly recently, an esoteric subject. Secondly, and more selfishly, I didn’t want to draw a shit-storm down upon myself, but I survived my previous forays into this subjectpractically unscathed, and the subject has become too mainstream, and too important, to stay quiet about.

We are now at the stage where trans activists, with the full support of liberal feminists, collaborate with MRAs (‘men’s rights activists’), to try to stop FAB (female assigned at birth) women meeting and organising as a political group.

Identity Politics: Illogical.

You can’t identify AS something. You either ARE that thing or you AREN’T.

You can’t change the definition of that thing to suit yourself.

You can’t change the definition of Lizard to “scaled creature with a pair of arms and a pair of legs”, and then tattoo scales on yourself and say you’re a Lizard. You’re a fucking human being.

Just as you cannot change your species, you cannot change your sex. You’re cosmetic surgery-ing yourself to look like something you’re not, you might even be convinced, and be so earnest as to convince others that you feel like something you’re not, even though logic says you cannot know how it feels to be something you’re not, but baby, you ain’t that thing when the chips are down.

You can fool some of the people some of the time…

“Gender Fluidity”

If gender is fluid, how do trans and cis exist?

If trans women are the same as female women, why the distinction?

Why are so called “cis women” not entitled to the same gender fluidity?

And if gender isn’t a binary, but fluid in nature, how are trans people able to be “misgendered”?

Ridic.

Yes, men ‘of sound mind’ do commit murders

fire in my belly

I’ve never studied criminology, psychology or sociology (or any -ology, for that matter) but I do read the papers. I read about murder every single day. I read about women and children being raped and murdered in war zones. I read about schoolchildren being murdered in their classrooms. I read that two women per week are murdered in the UK in so-called ‘domestic’ incidents. In just the past couple of weeks the news has been filled with the murders of April Jones, of Tia Sharp, of Georgia Williams, of Lee Rigby. In the next couple of weeks more people will be murdered and their names will appear in the papers. The name of Reeva Steenkamp is back in the news as the trial of the man accused of her murder approaches. I am not a criminologist, a psychologist or a sociologist but I have been reading…
