Just watched this https://youtu.be/GVCHe75R7KY

Huge trans convention with workshops, including ‘how to get into trans porn’ and ‘show and tell SRS results’

This person is not doing the movement any favours, talking about seeing born women and being jealous of their little hands because they’d give better handjobs hmm

He's, like, really annoying?

Albadross Fri 27-Oct-17 17:46:42

And the farting....confused

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!

Ugh. It’s all about sex. All of it. It’s all about what you look like. ‘Tits, pussies’.

Look, if you want to go to a convention where it’s all about genitalia, then knock yourself out (although it’s still bloody exploitative).

Please, please, please do not tell me that this is what makes you a woman.

I’m afraid I had to skim watch. Yet again, they don’t get the point. (I honestly don’t care if you nearly missed your plane).

Well that was horrible!

The convention sounds horrific. It’s not about sex though!

Yup, unbelievably annoying delivery - didn't get v far in but was intrigued by the comment that they weren't dysphoric for 3 days because they were, like, literally surrounded by their people.

I wonder why that would lessen a feeling of being unhappy in your own body (which I think dysphoric means?)

That's a travestied version of womanhood. Like an episode of Southpark acted by the Mean Girls. "Tits", "pussies", "farting is so funny". Not a great representation of any adult IMO.

He's a camp gay man. And a very annoying one.

Ugg.

Can you imagine the outrage if "cis"-women wanted to do something similar???

Datun Sat 28-Oct-17 09:50:33

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.

Couldn’t watch the whole lot. One of the most annoying people I’ve ever had the displeasure of watching. No representation of what being a woman is really about

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."

The world has gone mad.

Albadross Sun 29-Oct-17 12:55:47

As much as I feel I've got from the amazingly articulate women on here, sometimes I wonder if my life would be easier if I was still a third wave feminist - it's all so fucked.

DeleteOrDecay Sun 29-Oct-17 14:01:47

It’s not a trans convention, it’s a sex convention for autogynophiles.

Datun Sun 29-Oct-17 17:50:38

Yes it is. And the government are about to legislate women out of existence on the basis of a male fetish.

WitchBitchHarpyTerfThatsMe Mon 30-Oct-17 00:21:12

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?

Albadross Mon 30-Oct-17 12:27:48

I'm definitely up for evidence gathering - I've been saving some threads on here and screenshots of abusive things but a direction would help!
