I am heartened to see the criticism of the word ‘cis’ from more places around the world. Women are waking up to the misogyny that is transactivism.

“Loudly proclaiming that the use of biological, scientific words are bigoted, exclusionary, or even violent is actually bigoted, and exclusionary. It’s not violent though, because that’s just a ridiculous exaggeration. It’s projection on a grand scale. The truth is that if you are so terribly triggered by the use of biological terms for your body, or the bodies of others, you don’t need your language rewritten, you need therapy.

Anyone who truly believes that trans people are fighting a losing battle hasn’t considered how much erasure of women’s lives they have achieved in order to protect their own feelings. Meanwhile, birth activists can’t even have a discussion about forced episiotomies or caesareans without being told that women are lying, women are selfish and only care about their birth experience, doctors know best, women in “Africa” die etc etc. We find ourselves in a precarious position when apparently it is trans exclusionary to say “pregnant woman” but we can’t discuss forced episiotomies.

Apparently it is “cis privilege” to give birth. But is it really privilege when our bodies are being forcibly cut without consent, and we can’t even name our body parts or the role we play in giving birth? Many of us can’t choose where we will give birth, or who will attend our births? We can’t access birth control or abortion? When a man who rapes us can take us to court and seek visitation with a child that resulted from his rape? When a woman of colour is at a significantly increased risk of death during or shortly after birth?”

Apart from the denial of biological fact, it is shit like this.   Men do not respect the boundaries set by women.  The attempts to shame Lesbians into straight sex is absolutely horrifying.  But this is allowed to fly because the authors of said tweets are exercising their male privilege watch them define words and meanings – the power to name things is almost exclusively male in our society.  When women push back against this baseless, putrid, tide of inanity they are ostracized, harassed, and threatened.

That, dear readers, is bullshit.

I hope the transactivist antics at the Woman’s March spurred more women to experience their peak-trans moment, to realize that feminism is about centring the needs of females (as in the liberation from patriarchy and patriarchal standards).  It shouldn’t even have to be said, yet it must be repeated until the message sinks in – Feminism is for females as a class and their fight against patriarchy.

This whole liberation from patriarchy idea tends to be quite of putting to dudes (whatever their stripe).  It would seem that if one is making dudes uncomfortable, then you’re on the right path.  The converse also applies, if one is being lauded and supporting by the male types it is quite possible that your actions or beliefs are not really helping much (see much of liberal feminism).

Anyhow, these tweets by transactivists are the embodiment of male entitlement mixed with the inherent narcissism of identity politics (IP being the polar opposite of effective Feminism).   Enjoy. (?)

Let’s examine the claim that is often seen during gender-critical debates. The idea that radical feminists want to reduce women to their mere body parts is given a thorough response.  The tl;dr is that females, under patriarchy, are oppressed because they possess female anatomy, yes folks,  sex based oppression is where the action is.  :/
