It’s a contradiction in terms, just like “feminine penis.”
Yet our opponents accuse us, a group of gay/lesbian/bisexual progressives, of being “homocons” and “TERFs.” We can’t be both.
It’s disheartening that progressive media have silenced our legitimate criticism of “transitioning.” That is why we had no choice but to start a petition: to get our voices heard. Everyone should have a voice, including gays & lesbians who believe that T ideology is both homophobic & misogynist, as well as unnecessary, expensive, physically risky and ultimately a failure: it’s impossible to change biological sex. A man may have cosmetic surgery and artificial hormones to look like a woman, but this does not make him a woman.
There is nothing “radical” about feminist ideals conceived more than 40 years ago and illustrated in the classic children’s book entitled Free to Be You and Me. Little girls are free to play football, and little boys are free to play princess. Many of us gays & lesbians were ourselves gender nonconforming as children, and now as adults, are relieved that nobody encouraged us to change our bodies to fit in with society’s restrictive sex roles.
This is why we think T is homophobic: it is encouraging possibly gay children to disrupt their growth and development in order to fit in with heteronormative sex stereotypes. The long term consequences of delaying puberty are unknown. The risk isn’t worth it, because there is nothing wrong with being gay or lesbian. Gender nonconforming children do not need to be medicalized and possibly sterilized. They need to be free to play with whatever toys they like and to dress however they wish, instead of being burdened with gender identity.
Restrooms are segregated by reproductive organs, not by gender identity nor physical appearance. Biological females require and deserve privacy from biological males. 60% of male-to-female transgenders are “autogynphiles,” which are straight men who get aroused by being perceived as women and occupying women’s private spaces. North Virginia currently has a man dressed as a woman spying in public restrooms on the loose, and recently Julianna Fialkowski, an M2T being reported as a “woman,” was arrested for child pornography and the rape of a lesbian. Please search Donna/Doug Perry for information about an M2T who killed two women because he was jealous of their ability to get pregnant.
Personally, I am dismayed that conservative media are reporting on our views but liberal media are censoring them. In my opinion, T ideology is aligned with 1950s sex roles, and is therefore regressive and not progressive.
