The part about having people on stage ‘spreading themselves wide open’ just sounds mad - I get that being honest about the results of surgery is probably a good thing but to get on stage and do that is dehumanising!
Here’s women trying to highlight sexual assault and male aggression with #metoo and a bunch of men are holding a convention where they all show each other their new ‘female’ genitalia. And how cool it all is.
Asking people to believe that these men are women is incredibly damaging to women.
He's just a camp gay guy. Acting like a teenage girl. But badly.
Was too annoying to watch all of it. But I do wonder why can't he just be a camp gay man with a boyfriend? As I assume his boyfriend is gay. Why become a poor facsimile of a woman, take potentially damaging drugs, mutilate his perfectly healthy body?
Why is it all of a sudden so bad to just be gay? It seems dishonest.
Anyone who says "Yaaaasss queen" tends to be saying "yes madam, you clearly conform to the type of womanhood I am comfortable with and I think this is the kind of womanhood I will parrot. Anyone who doesn't conform to my version of womanhood is invalid."
Delete that's a very incisive conclusion, I agree 100%.
Datun, yes, depressing. However the general public are at least being told some factual truths about this movement. I am cautiously optimistic, I don't think it's timely enough to to stop the GRA amendments (which is awful) but I do think that people are waking up to what is going on and as such there will be a wider swell of support in opposing the practical application. I can but hope.
I've 'radicalised', or rather educated my DP, my DD, my 24 year old step-daughter, my good feel friend and another friend and her daughter about this is recent weeks. . My step-daughter is a year out of uni and( after watching youtubers and read articles about the whole TRA stuff that I recommended) told me that at uni she felt she didn't have a voice to challenge it although she wasn't comfortable with much of the dogma. She said that it's a relief to hear stuff that allows her to disagree.
We do this one step at at a time. It's all we have unfortunately.
I want to go to a trans convention! Undercover repoter stylee, of course. I'll dress in a manly way so no-one questions my gender identity (or lack thereof). Seriously, if they're happy to be so blatent, surely there's lots of interesting material there that the wider world would be interested in? Could we have a coordinated evidence-gathering mission?
