Take a look at this article about supporting families of Transgender people by the Gires.org.uk Website to see why that view is so utterly incorrect and harmful?

Jesus

Mumsnet seems totally obsessed with trans women lately.

Why??

I mean why mostly in the last few months?

Binary confused politically correct pronouns, women with dicks in prison/women's changing rooms....tiresome.

I've been on a lot of the TG threads recently and have not seen a single person use the rather offensive phrase in your title.

In fact, it seems to be a very male view that pre-op MtF are "Chicks with Dicks" - the vast majority of MNers who are critical of transactivism are firmly of the opinion that transwomen are a subset of men, not women with additional parts

This thread was started as the OP is "upset" by the discussion on a thread about whether Tara Hudson should be in a male or female prison.

Tara Hudson is trans, and would easily pass as a woman. She has several convictions for assault and a fully functioning penis, which she uses in her job as an escort.

Hang on OP. Surely "chicks with dicks" is just a crude version of "women with penises" which is "right" if somewhat reductive.

"Men in frocks" is the "wrong" phrase frequently seen on MN.

I'm lost enough as it is without people changing the rules again,

You appear to be posting a thread about a thread, which is against MN rules.

The person in question being described as a "chick with a dick" described themselves online as a pre-op transexual and a shemale, and advertises their services as a transexual prostitute, boasting of the size of her penis. Chick with a dick sounds pretty accurate if the full picture is given.

Before you come bashing onto here, maybe you might want to read things properly and listen to what peoples real concerns are for the welfare of vulnerable women. No one is wishing discrimination on trans people, they are saying that women's rights should not be trampled in the stampede to appear tolerant and politically correct.

Yes, agree with CactusAnnie - especially with regard to the enormous publicity surrounding Caitlyn Jenner who is never out of the "news" these days.

ReluctantCamper Sat 31-Oct-15 22:25:50

As OneFlew says, I have never seen that phrase in use here. In common with many other mumsnetters, I believe trans women are a subset of men, nothing to do with 'chicks'.

Alisvolatpropiis Sat 31-Oct-15 22:35:43

Transwomen are biologically male. That is an indisputable fact.

Would I refer to a transwoman as a "chick with a dick"? No.

Sparklingbrook Sat 31-Oct-15 22:36:27

I agree with Worra.

lordStrange Sat 31-Oct-15 22:43:38

Transgender issues are very NOW all of a sudden aren't they? Like a giant trend that appeared from nowhere.

Chicks with dicks is just silly Dailyfail type commentary.

SisterMoonshine Sat 31-Oct-15 22:47:50

Chicks with dicks?
I've not seen that.
I think your problem is with people who see transwomen as men with dicks.

MorrisZapp Sat 31-Oct-15 22:49:02

Nobody has called anybody a chick with a dick.

pestilence13610 Sat 31-Oct-15 22:50:39

chicks with dicks is a porn industry novelty and quite unrepresentative of the majority of transwomen

LovelyFriend Sat 31-Oct-15 22:51:15

This is the first time I've seen "chick with dicks" mentioned on MN (been here many years)
Nice one OP hmm

Jaxsbum Sat 31-Oct-15 22:52:44

Im with you worra
Tbh i have bigger stuff to worry about than this

grimbletart Sat 31-Oct-15 22:54:17

It seems mostly to be about MTFs - don't hear much uproar about FTMs. It's just another case of all about the menz.

MaudGonneMad Sat 31-Oct-15 22:55:06

OP, I believe you're the only one using the phrase 'chicks with dicks'.

kua Sat 31-Oct-15 22:56:30

The first time on mumsnet that I have seen "Chicks with dicks" is in your subject heading OP.

BabyGanoush Sat 31-Oct-15 22:57:22

Will we get this rammed down our throats until we agree?
