Re: May 7, 2019: Level Up 36

Radfems: We need abolish the gender binary! Non-binary people: Hello, gender roles are bad because for me, specifically me, putting on nail polish and lipstick while still having a beard makes me euphoric. We should keep the spectrum for binary trans people's validity, but celebrate people (mainly A...

Re: May 7, 2019: Level Up 36

Radfems: We need abolish the gender binary! Non-binary people: Hello, I'm trans and you're cis women. Your and my socialization from childhood doesn't matter. In fact, talking about socialization and gender construction is violence. No matter how much you disagree with gender roles, my feelings are ...

Re: Let's share some readings between radfems

my education on gender went something like: - "Oppression" by Marilyn Frye - "White Privilege and Male Privilege" by Peggy McIntosh, 1988 - "A Woman’s Worst Nightmare" in the NY Times - "Doing Gender" by Candace West; Don H. Zimmerman - "Long Island Man Kills Infant Boy for Acting Like a Girl" (2010...

Re: Not angry, just disappointed.

In the same way that there's little consideration of what capitalism is and why it's bad before anyone writes screeds defending men buying "sex," there's little thought to what gender roles are and why they're bad before these posts here are created. Radfems believe gender ID is delusion *because* t...

Re: June 20, 2019: Threats 8

What you're describing is transmedicalism, something mainstream LGBT discourse already rejects consciously. Many women are saying transsexuality is nothing to deifiy because it still relies on stereotypes (and not just for dress-- e.g. "women have high voices so I must get voice feminization surgery...

Re: Porn and Johnbies

Porn use is a pretty simple moral issue for me: Let's say I'm considering whether to watch it. How do I know the woman in it isn't poor and thus forced into it? Or maybe she's been drugged? Or is threatened with violence? Or is being emotionally abused? Men do all these things outside of porn and al...

Re: June 20, 2019: Threats 8

Hmm. What if we believe there's no such thing as the "self?" What if we only have our bodies (mostly male and female, some intersex) and our ever-changing mind? But 99% of the progressive movement today posits femininity and masculinity as innate "self" qualities, meaning GNC people and allies can s...
