Cisgender: of, relating to, or being a person whose gender identity corresponds with the sex the person had or was identified as having at birth. — Merriam-Webster

Gender Identity:

  1. the totality of physical and behavioral traits that are designated by a culture as masculine or feminine

  2.  a person’s internal sense of being male, female, some combination of male and female, or neither male or female

— Merriam-Webster

Femininehaving qualities traditionally ascribed to women, as sensitivity or gentleness. — Dictionary.com

Masculine: having qualities traditionally ascribed to men, as strength and boldness. — Dictionary.com

I find these definitions interesting. Many of us are told by members of trans* community that we don’t understand how it feels because we’re “cis.” At first I accepted that. I am a cisgender male. Okay. My “gender identity” matches up with my biological sex. Cool.

But I…

“After doing some reading in postmodern theoretical texts, several things about the theory suddenly struck me as incongruous. I have been trying to see not just what postmodern theorists say about their theory, but more importantly, how postmodern theory functions in the world–what are the effects of adopting postmodern thinking and theorizing. What became clear to me after some reading was that the overarching effect of postmodernism is to silence thinking and speaking, both personally and politically. I am aware that this is a rather outrageous statement given the attention postmodern theory pays to privileging the voices of

marginalized people, to giving voice to those previously unheard, and to investigating the silences embedded in the dominant discourse (to sling a little postmodern verbiage myself). However, in a deep reading of how postmodern theory functions…

Some simple Friday thoughts. Thanks Miep.

There Are So Many Things Wrong With This

Angry men are not women. Sad men are not women. Medically altered men are not women, and men who suffer birth defects are not women.

Feminine men are not women. Confused men are not women.

You are all men. And that’s all right.

What’s not all right is all this harassment and pressure. What’s not all right are the death threats, the elaborate descriptions of how some of you would like to torture “terfs.” This is not all right at all.

Gender theory was created by second wave feminists, the ones you like to hate on. You have turned it on its head. You have made it impossible to create coalition, trans lobbyists. Your stance allows nothing but female submission.

This is not the leftism of my childhood. I expected that the adults I knew were saving the world for me. I was wrong, but we were, at least, grounded…

ANTHRO FEMINISM

If you haven’t listened to the Feminist Current podcast interviewing Civia Tamarkin about her documentary “Birthright: A War Story,” you should – especially if you live in the United States. The damage to reproductive rights that the Trump administration and their state government minions are inflicting on US women – and global women through international policy – is a continually developing tragedy. Here in Missouri the governor is in the midst of passing a law in which landlords can decline/ evict unmarried women who use birth control and get abortions. No word yet as to how this would be even be enforced.

So, during this interview, Tamarkin asks something that my mother asked about a month ago: where are all the women protesting these attacks on women’s reproductive freedom?

Tamarkin brought up an especially good point about college campuses. Generally a hub for social change, college campuses presently seem particularly…

Capitalism thrives on the hyper individualism and the extinguishing of class consciousness. Well worth your time to watch Mary Lou Singleton and Maya Dillard discuss gender, identity politics, and feminism.

Purple Sage

This is an excellent video on the transgender issue. Chris Hedges is a real leftist (read: not a neoliberal) who understands radical feminism. He interviewed two women active in the feminist fight against trans politics: lawyer Maya Dillard Smith, who wants to balance everyone’s rights and is concerned about the lack of due process in legal changes being made in recent years, and Mary Lou Singleton, a radical feminist midwife active in the women’s liberation movement. I particularly enjoyed when Smith explained the difference between separate bathrooms for blacks and whites versus separate bathrooms for women and men. They have discussed the issue from an anti-capitalist perspective, which I really appreciate.
