Some FaceBook junkfood for your brain….
Cristan, who are the “separatists” that would be mad that this passed? I want to know so I can call them mean names. BTW, you deal with “facts” so I imagine you have a list who have condemned this. http://
Well, to start with… you.
Are you not frustrated that HUD uses the term “transgender” in a manner consistent with the English language? Or, are you happy that HUD uses this term in a way that’s inclusive of you? Does that not violate the internet meme which predicts that as long as the term “transgender” exists in its present form (inclusive), civil rights progress can’t be made?
Are you happy about this HUD scenario…
a willful disregard of the concerns about female safety in the name of so-called “gender equality” – constitutes an unconscionable position for any organization that seeks to promote social justice, let alone organizations that claim to represent females. Female needs and vulnerabilities deserve representation and serious consideration in all matters that compromise the boundaries of sex-segregated space.
I mean, if you can find a small sample of men in various states of crossdress and hold them out to be examples of the overall MTF transgender population, why not do the same for the FTM population? Or is it only non-transsexual MTFs who are worthy of your smear campaign?
How well does it sit with you that if a non-transsexual MTF trans person (even with visible facial hair) shows up at a women’s shelter, she must be housed? Is that what you’ve been arguing for all this time and I just missed it? You’ve actually supported non-transsexual trans rights all along and in no way acted to relegate those non-transsexual trans rights as being a lower priority than transsexual rights?
You’re happy that non-transsexual MTFs will be housed by women’s shelters? You’re happy that non-transsexual and transsexual rights were seen as being equally valid in the face of right-winger rape hype and bathroom memes? You’re happy with HUD’s use of transgender? You will disavow the “as long as transgender exists, progress can’t be made” meme here and now? You’ve stopped conflating terms and cherry picking data for you buddy Cathy “penis = rape” Brennan?
[Cristan, who are the “separatists” that would be mad that this passed]
Then why would you of all people ask this question?
Of course I am frustrated by the use of transgender to include me. However, you are being deceptive in your article. You made it sound like all separatists hate the idea that transgender people get protections.
“Aren’t you the one who pushes the lie that transgender = man who wears panties on his head so that he can sexually abuse women?”
Of course you are referring to http://
FtM transsexuals are not my concern when it comes to protections for women. My activism focuses on women’s issues.
I support rights and protections for ALL in employment.
I support rights and protections for ALL in housing.
I support rights and protections for ALL in PA (excluding sex-segregated spaces for females).
“Cristan, who are the “separatists” that would be mad that this passed”
Absolutely misleading to the point it is a lie. You have no problem with outright lying. I am not talking about just opinions. You have published outright lies about me in the past.
Misleading? Did you say “misleading”?
[I know this really pisses you off because you told me that a male crossdresser can be considered a transgender woman.]
Provide me the quote wherein I state that all types of people who are labeled “crossdressers” are transgender women.
Misleading you say?
[Cristan, who are the “separatists” that would be mad that this passed?]
[I support rights and protections for ALL in PA (excluding sex-segregated spaces for females).]
Would that also include HUD funded women’s shelters?
[ You made it sound like all separatists hate the idea that transgender people get protections. ]
Are you really trying to make a rhetorical absolutist argument? That’s your debate strategy? Since there might be some separatist somewhere who’s glad that non-transsexual MTF transgender people must be served by women’s shelter, the entire point of the article is moot? Again, I ask you… Misleading? Did you say “misleading”?
[Absolutely misleading to the point it is a lie. You have no problem with outright lying. I am not talking about just opinions. You have published outright lies about me in the past. http://
Are you claiming that you never suggested that non-op transsexuals are men? Are you claiming that you never referred to specific non-op transsexuals as males? Are you going to claim that you never suggested that MTF crossdress pose a danger to women and should be bared from sex-segregated spaces? Again, I ask you… Misleading? Did you say “misleading”?
So to be clear:
– You ARE NOT, in fact, happy with HUD developments.
– You HAVE NOT disavowed the “as long as transgender exists, progress can’t be made” meme.
– You WILL NOT stop cherry picking data to be used by the anti-equality nuts.
– You WILL NOT apply the same fallacious cherry picking tactics to FTMs; you reserve that special attention for non-transsexual “transgender” people only.
– You WILL NOT stop supporting the meme that non-TS trans folk pose a rape risk.
– You DO admit that you aren’t concerned with the equality of some trans folk; that you’re out for #1: [FtM transsexuals are not my concern when it comes to protections for women. My activism focuses on women’s issues. ]
Nah… but you’re for equal rights for (in caps) ALL!!!!!!!*
*Some exclusions apply. Offer not valid in all states.
Again, I ask you… Misleading? Did you say “misleading”?
BTW… You still HAVE NOT provided a list of just 10 real-world examples where protections against discrimination based upon gender identity and expression allowed abusers to circumvent laws prohibiting rape, assault, stalking and/or public indecency/disturbance.
Debate me on Blog TV. Lets have a “face to face” conversation about all of this. Lets put our arguments out there in the marketplace of ideas and allow folks to decide for themselves whose argument is full of BS. Debate me.
[blah blah blah blah blah blah…apples, oranges, grapefruits..blah blah blah blah blah blah. Don’t forget, I am an “opinion leader”. hehe… 🙂]
Yes, you are… And a fine example of the rational underpinnings of separatism. That’s precisely why I want to debate you live on Blog TV.
