Taking a quick glance at last year’s Top Trends list it becomes clear that the overall trend towards reducing the social role of women via the enforcement of cultural subordination rituals (femininity) shows little sign of abating. While there has been notable increased feminist activism and consciousness-raising against gender, the trend continues towards increased sexualization, objectification and dehumanization of women and girls with no improvement in female participation in social, economic and civic life.
Rather, conservative male supremacist power has increasingly targeted for reversal the scant gains won by the “second wave” of the women’s liberation movement, including reproductive autonomy, freedom from beauty mandates, economic parity, protection from male sex-based violence. The sole exception is in the area of women’s rights to legal parity regarding state support for monogamous romantic attachments- an unintended artifact of the successful male homosexual rights movement.
Currently the increasingly subordinate social role of women is being codified into law by the state at the behest of the powerful genderist “transgender rights” movement, a men’s sexual rights movement based on relaxing acceptable male dominance roles for men via the elimination of legal recognition of women entirely.
The transgender movement claims that any male who derives sexual satisfaction from inserting used tampons into his anus is female, or for any other reason, and should be legally recognized as female in order to access female-only spaces and services, to be activated at any time at their discretion, regardless of whether they have previously sought any such legal redefinition or not. The transgender movement supports the right of male pedophiles to circumvent sex offender contact admonitions by claiming female status in order to occupy hot tubs in female locker rooms where female children are present. The transgender movement lobbies for the rights of serial rapists to be supplied with unfettered access to unlimited confined incarcerated victims by claiming that they “feel female”. The transgender movement is based on the “human right” that all males have the right to occupy and use females for any purpose they desire at all times and under any conditions. It is no mistake that the transgender movement prioritizes the legalization of sex-trafficking and pornography. Male transgenders consider female objectification a “female privilege”.
Unfortunately for men, women still do exist whether men deem to recognize us or not and the dissonance between our intended erasure and our undeniable existence is resulting in some interesting failures of the genderist politic. Some of the Top Trends in Gender 2013 contain an undertow of a poorly conceived male politic doomed to collapse under its own overreaching illogic and absurdity.
In no particular order:
Euthanasia introduced as a medical treatment for sex-role incongruence:
Nathan Verhelst’s life was terminated by lethal injection on film, with support of her transgender community, as part of an upcoming 2014 documentary film release promotion. Number of WPATH representatives or transgender activists protesting this “treatment” as inhumane, un-therapeutic, or exploitative, worldwide: Zero. Canada’s Bill 52 currently under debate in the national assembly will allow Canadian transgenders to join the Belgium and Dutch nations in the medical treatment of transgenderism via termination of life.
Decline of Transgender Day of Remembrance:
Attendance at “Transgender Day of Remembrance” ceremonies (an event created in a cynical political attempt by white heterosexual men to emulate the public sympathy generated for the gay rights movement by the hundreds of thousands of gay men who died horribly due to the ignored public health crisis of AIDS) drastically declines as white heterosexual transgenders discover that:
1.) most transgender victims of murder are homosexual MOC killed by other MOC, and that these murder rates of transgender MOC are the same as murder rates of male-on-male MOC in general
2.) Transgender males murder others at the same rates that they are murdered (male violence).
High profile “comings out” of sexist violent alpha-males:
-Bradley then Brianna then Chelsea Manning who assaulted a female superior officer by punching her in the face until he was physically restrained.
-Bob Tur, news helicopter pilot who quits flying when he starts synthetic estrogen because he believes estrogen renders women hormonally incompetent to fly.
-“Princess” Kristin Beck, special forces Navy Seal and freelance defense industry warfare consultant.
-James/Jennifer Pritzker, right-wing billionaire funder of the NRA, Heritage Foundation, transgender children clinics, and one of the top Republican donors in his state.
-Nikki Sinclaire anti-feminist conservative Parlimentarian
-Masha Best, autogynephillic Russian human rights attorney who posts photoshopped nude selfies in honor of the male on male violence of the “Transgender Day of Remembrance”.
-Lara Jane Grace, “Against Me” singer after facing multiple rape accusations by female fans.
-Larry/Lana Wachowski, lifestyle BDSM kinkster, longtime forced feminization submissive, partnered with the dominatrix and former “owner” of female pornster and sexual abuse survivor Buck Angel; now the “most successful female director in Hollywood history”.
-Fallon Fox, middle-aged male professional batterer of women, finally outed by journalists after several years of disguising himself as female in order to assault young female athletes in the MMA.
Plastic Surgery and Cosmetic Medicine:
-Child Rapists and sadistic wife-killers continue to be used by the transgender legal orgs to spearhead attempts to make cosmetic medicine “medically necessary” under the state via litigation.
-The Department of Health and Human Services opens a public forum for feedback on whether cosmetic medicine should be paid under Medicaid and Medicare in cases of genderism. The public forum is closed mere hours later and the transgender lobby negotiates with the department in a backroom deal which results in a document issued months later stating that HHS has determined that the ban on cosmetic treatment for genderism has been overturned. The Board is now entering a “discovery” process to create new standards which allow genderists to access taxpayer-funded cosmetic medicine and procedures to help them appear visually more like the opposite sex.
-UK gender services create long waiting lists as the number of individuals seeking state-funded plastic surgery and medicine double annually.
-Dutch state-funded gender medical clinics are placed on a “freeze” and stop accepting new transgenders as 200% increases in applicants bankrupt the system.
-Swedish transgenders who have undergone surgical “sex change” sue the government in a class-action suit for damages to their fertility and physical integrity caused by the requirement that transgenders undergo a “sex change” in order to change their legal sex.
-Trans activists begin lobbying for more surgical options including “designer genitals” of their own choosing, such as the insertion of a neovagina behind their penis. External labiaplasty without creation of a fuck-hole cavity becomes more popular and is performed more commonly as men not seeking to be penetrated in a surgical-hole opt to forgo the long recovery time and complications of the internal testicular-skinned penetrative sheath.
-Dr. Garramone obtains a registered trademark for the phrase “FTM Top Surgery”.
-Transgender movement continues to do nothing whatsoever to counter deadly silicone pumping.
Transgender Male Teens/Young Adults create problematic media narratives for the Trans Movement:
-Cassidy Kennedy, 16, received international media coverage as the first male high school homecoming queen – even though several transgender males preceded him. Describes his lifetime goal as becoming a “she-male” pornography actor and male prostitute. Lies about his age on internet gay male hook-up sites where he drops the female impersonation and identifies himself as an adult gay male. Drops out of school in his senior year to pursue his goals in the pornography and prostitution industries. These revelations are not reported in mainstream media.
-Jewelyes Guitierrez, assaulted a female student at school in a planned “beat down” video filmed by his friend and posted to youtube. In the video he clearly approaches and cold-cocks a female then runs back to his cameraperson/friend. The teen girl’s friends chase him and a fight ensues where they knock him on his ass. Jewelyes deleted his staged youtube attack video, which showed his calculated assault against a woman, and the footage was subsequently censored on mainstream media sites removing his initial attack. Police recommend filing battery charges against him on the basis of the original video. “Police concluded that Guitierrez hit first and recommended she be charged with two counts of battery on a school ground”. Jewelyes claims his planned filmed assault was justified due to female students “disrespecting” him previously by denying he was actually female. He claimed his planned, violent filmed assault was justified and retroactively accused a female student of previously spitting on him. His beat-down assault video on a female student was later nonsensically framed as “an attack on a transgender person” by transgender activists desperate to obfuscate and spin the premeditated male on female violence that took place. Case pending.
-Jessica Valentine- male Florence Colorado high school student becomes center of controversy when female students object to his presence in female restrooms. According to Colorado Gender Identity law, all males have the right to access all female sex-segregated areas and it is illegal discrimination to question any male who enters female sex-segregated areas of public nudity for any reason, regardless of female concerns. No female may object for any reason and verbalizing discomfort is illegal. Valentine sought media attention to complain that female students discriminated against him by verbalizing their discomfort with his presence and behavior in the female restrooms. He also complained that using unisex restrooms was not an option because they infringed on his right to witness and inject himself into the female toileting experience in the way he would like. Subsequently the right-wing Pacific Justice Institute offers to legally represent the female students against charges by transgender rights organizations that the girls infringed on the young man’s rights by expressing their discomfort with his harassing female restroom fixation. The girls assert that school officials threatened to charge them with hate crimes and kick them off sports teams as punishment if they continued to publicly complain. Transgender activists Cristan Williams and Autumn Sandeen organize a protest at PJI institute offices but only 8 people show up and no media coverage results.
-Steven Sanchez, 21 – another male homecoming queen, this one at UNI, not claiming to “feel” female yet seeks media attention to complain that he should have the legal right not to “feel uncomfortable” using female restrooms as a male who sometimes likes wearing non-traditional clothing. From the DesMoines Register:
“Sanchez, 21, was born a male and still generally identifies as a male — although he often dresses like a woman. He’s the school’s first transgender homecoming king or queen.
His uncertainty over access to restroom facilities stems from an incident on campus last year in which he says a transgender friend was told he couldn’t use the women’s restroom in Shull Hall dormitory, even though he was dressed in women’s attire.
Since that incident, Sanchez has sought to use single-stall restrooms on campus that are open to both sexes.
“There are not too many across campus, and when there isn’t one, I usually just try to find a men’s restroom that doesn’t have anyone in it,” Sanchez said. “I’ve seen incidents where people get in trouble for using the restroom even though I know it’s the law that you can use the restroom you feel most comfortable in.”
Sanchez continued: “I’m scared. Even when I’m dressed as a girl, I’m scared that I would get in trouble just for trying to do something that makes me comfortable.”
Transgender activists agree that all males who are non-traditionally masculine also have the “right” to use sex-segregated female areas of public nudity, and trans rights orgs use female pronouns for Steven even though he does not “identify as female” and prefers male pronouns.
-Katherine Svenson, Colorado school board member suggests that male bodied students should be fully integrated into locker rooms, restrooms, and sports programs designated for male bodied students, regardless of what sort of clothing they wear or what sorts of thoughts and feelings they have. “Not until the plumbing’s changed,” Svenson was quoted. Transgender activists post her home address and phone number online and deluge her with thousands of rape, mutilation and death threats. Transgender activist Bianca Nurton posts a comment on gay website The Advocate stating: “Quick someone hold her down I got a knife lets see how quick I can change her plumbing.” The comment is not removed, rather it is upvoted and followed by multiple comments by other men critiquing the school board member’s sexual desirability.
-California AB1266 statute- allows all students to access the sex-segregated areas of public nudity designated for the opposite sex, for any purpose and duration that the student sees fit, without qualification. Also allows all students to participate on sports teams of the opposite sex, eliminating federal title IX sporting programs for females. Schools prepare by purchasing curtains to hang in locker rooms for females to hide behind in order to allow male students free run of the formerly female facilities. Right-wing coalition launches a referendum attempt. The California secretary of state is due to report on the outcome of the referendum’s signature drive on January 8.
Peak trans is finally hitting the mainstream via teens. The trans movement is using the same tactics that have worked for them as an adult male sexual rights movement against ill-informed leftists and progressives: harassment, violent threats, lies, censorship, disability framing, suicide threats, gaslighting, exploiting their tenuous connection with the gay rights movement, etc. We’ll see if it flies. There is also a massive disconnect between the trans political narratives for teens and the reality that most high school students who “identify as” transgender- especially females- “identify as” genderqueer, non-binary transgenders and reject the “opposite sex” narratives that “gender identity” laws seek to codify. Since queer is now cool in the hinterlands, expect this trend to endure for roughly the same length of time as MySpace and livejournal. Tick tock.
The mainstream media loves the transgender children narrative and the transgender movement loves peddling it. Any kid with a cash-strapped munchausen-fueled parent is guaranteed their 5 minutes of fame and all the doting attention that adult girlhood-fantasizing autogynephiles can heap upon them. Parents diagnose their children as transsexual before the age of two, and network together in their quest to find physicians willing to perform surgery and administer cross-sex hormones on their children before the age of consent.
-Cody, Jazz, Nicole Maines, etal become minor yet marketable media concerns on a “transgender chicken circuit” created to promote the “Born This Way” meme, and to create a de-sexualized media face for the largely sexually autogynephilic male transgender rights movement.
-In a strange hiccup, the Trans Media Watch, one of the worst offenders in exploiting specific children to promote the “transgender children” meme, who issued statements against Ria Cooper, the youngest person to be medically transgendered in the UK, when he announced his decision to detransition, displayed a bizarre moment of hypocrisy when they issued a demand that the media no longer publicize transgender children. Out of nowhere they seemingly reversed their longstanding practice and issued the following admonishment:
This is interesting because it not only goes against the Trans Media Watch’s own long term practice but the practice of all trans advocacy groups internationally which are publicizing individual “transgender” children as often as they can as a matter of highest priority. Paris Lees has done multiple creepy media appearances with children as a TMW representative. Will Trans Media Watch attack GLAAD and every other trans org for exploiting children 24/7? Highly doubtful. I expect them to resume exploiting children themselves if they haven’t already which they probably have. Hypocrites!
-Boys camps are set up for male youths to perform femininity and wear inappropriately sexualized female clothing absent the distracting presence of actual girls.
-Oregon becomes the first state to assign Federal medicaid funds for the medical sterilization of sex-role underperforming children. This is the first US government sponsored eugenics program against “unfit” children since sterilization of “feebleminded” children was halted 25 years ago. Interestingly, Oregon was the last US state to perform sterilization of undesirables- their eugenics board was finally eliminated in 1983. Unlike most jurisdictions swept up in the widespread and awful historic eugenics trend, Oregon’s was specifically implemented with the goal of eliminating the reproduction of homosexuals. Oregon’s previous eugenics program was also notably distinguished (along with Texas) by its punishing severity: total surgical removal of a subject’s gonads, surgically removing whole testes and ovaries of the “unfit”, rather than mere “tying of tubes”.
-United Nations declares “gender normalizing” medical procedures performed on intersex children to be an international Human Rights violation.
-Dr. Richard Keller of the Boston Children’s Hospital Pediatric Endocrinology Department, home of the GEMS center for the medicalization of gender in children, arrested on child pornography charges.
–Multiple high-profile cases of teens seeking reversal of effects of pediatric medical gender “treatments”.
Violence Against Women Act:
Transgender activists successfully lobby to siphon funding away from women’s services to male organizations -if those agencies serve men who are gay, bisexual or transgender. Also provides legal foundation to eliminate federally funded US women’s domestic violence services, rape relief services and battered women’s shelters on the grounds that services for women discriminate against gay, bisexual, and transgender men. Expect massive sex-based litigation to follow.
Continued elimination of legal sex designation- multiple countries and states eliminated all objective criteria for changing legal sex designation on birth certificates, state documents and identification (social security, passports, drivers license, etc.) Legal protections against sex-based exploitation of women and girls are eliminated in those jurisdictions, as the legal definition of sex becomes a matter of personal declaration of belief with no identifying characteristic whatsoever. Duration of cross-sex identification, medico-surgical body mods, are no longer required to change legal sex, only an undefined internal subjective “feeling” of reproductive sex. Anyone can claim to legally be the opposite sex at any time, even retroactively. Curiously, this right only benefits male persons who wish to expand the cultural parameters of a male supremacist social role. Elimination of female representation in political, civic, and cultural life is the primary goal of the transgender movement.
Censorship and McCarthyism of Women, Lesbians, and Feminists by transgender activists:
-Deep Green Resistance ecologist Lierre Keith no-platformed from Lawrence University Earth Day at the last minute due to protest by university representative and “husband blogger” Helen Boyd. Boyd lectures and writes books about her husband and his foibles, which she considers endlessly fascinating and important. Because: gender. Crossdressing and proudly autogynephilic blogger “Bluestocking Blue” hilariously speculates on what Boyd’s husband-blogging career would look like if her husband was not a genderist: “I wonder what would she have had to sink her academic teeth into, if not gender issues? And what would that look like to us? Would she be as well known? “And tonight, my guest is Helen Boyd, author of My Husband the Trainspotter.”
Boyd and company bizarrely manage to censor Lierre Keith’s Earth Day program appearance on the grounds of her previously stated belief that sex-roles are harmful to women. In a truly Orwellian turn, the university sides with the husband-blogger and agrees that Lawrence University is not a place to allow speech from women who challenge female cultural norms. Keith is no-platformed but the male event organizer takes it upon himself to attempt to perform her presentation himself. Whew!
-Feminist Julie Bindel cancels appearance at anti-pornography talk due to mass rape and death threats from transgender activists.
-Radical Lesbian Feminist and Butch activist Bev Jo is no-platformed at the last minute from a panel on Butch Women at the Butch Voices conference after male pornographer Tobi Hill-Meyer complained that her presence would make him feel “unsafe”.
-Feminists assaulted and their books destroyed by a group of transgender activists at Portland Conference for Social Change.
-Transgender activists join forces with MRAs to deluge the London Irish Centre venue for the scheduled RadFem2013 with violent threats, forcing them to cancel the booking out of fears for the safety of their workers. This tactic backfires on the activists as the local government provides use of the wonderful Camden City Centre for RadFem2013. The event is well attended, features excellent security, and transgender activists fail to make good on their threats when faced with the London police.
-Transgender activists try and fail to prevent the radical feminist RadFemRiseUp (CA) conference from taking place. Interestingly, the more the transgender movement tries to censor and prevent feminist speech and organizing, the more women discover and join the movement.
-Transgender “transwoman” activists successfully hack the WomanSpace and Pretendbians websites and attempt cyber-terrorism and DOS attacks on other lesbian and feminist sites. They attempt and fail at eliminating GenderTrender thanks to the response by many of you in getting the blog re-instated. THANK YOU.
– Too many other incidents of attempted blacklisting, censorship, no-platforming, and rape and death threats against feminists by transgender activists to list here. Look back through the 2013 archives of this blog to see coverage of many of them. Number of transgender events protested by feminists: Zero.
One funny by-product of the trans politic’s bullying censorship: mainstream literary and academic critics no longer willing to critically review transgender offerings. After Publishers Weekly offered one slightly critical line in a promotional blurb for Julia Serano’s new book he responded so badly (leaving argumentative comments and writing an essay against Publisher’s Weekly), and a critical review in OutWeek was censored after transgender complaints, no further venues were willing to publish a review. By all reports the book is just awful. Nonetheless the lack of coverage has to be hurting sales. Careful what you wish for boys!
Huge Resurgence in Radical Feminism:
Six major radical feminist conferences in four countries in the last few years represent a huge resurgence in radical feminism. Young women are abandoning pointless apolitical post-modern “funfeminism” in droves. Too many new radfem blogs to even keep track of. Gay men and pro-feminist men begin lending support. Readership of radical feminist websites continues to grow. Massive increase in public awareness of radical feminist positions on pornography, piv, sex trafficking, male violence, and gender. Major gender-critcal articles by Julian Vigo and Elizabeth Hungerford. Sheila Jeffrey’s “Gender Hurts” to be published in 2014. Group of renowned second-wave feminists issue statement in support of gender-critical feminism and freedom of speech for women on the harmfulness of gender. Too many positive developments to list here. Hugely successful ongoing consciousness-raising. Keep up the good work!
RadFemHub closes, becomes an archive.
FCM closes Femonade.
Increased Visibility and support for De-transitioners:
Several high-profile detransitioners go public including Don Ennis, Phillip Porter, Heath Atom Russell- who is forced to take out a restraining order against a deranged “transwoman” who threatens and stalks her. A network of female detrans bloggers forms, mainly on tumblr. Male detrans start blogs. Click on the “Gender Critical” icon on the right sidebar of this blog to read some of them. Male detransitioner Joel Nowak of REtransition.org puts together a detransition presentation and tries to present it at transgender conferences. You can read the outline HERE.
Gender Critical Transgender Activists:
Several transgender activists begin the necessary and inevitable work of reconciling transgender theory with gender-critical feminism. They seek to eliminate the fantasy elements of the transgender politic (for example: the delusional premise that reproductive dimorphism doesn’t exist in humans) and eliminate some aspects of the transgender politic which curtail the rights of women.
Increased number of transgender activists willing to address their autogynephilic sexual orientation. After decades of denial, the transgender movement is finally on the cusp of dealing with the fact that transgenderism means very different things for the individuals who benefit from gender (males) and the individuals who are oppressed by gender (females). For males, transgender is largely a sexual orientation based on desiring to be objectified as a sexualized, femininity-performing female. Femininity is a male-created male sexual orientation usually projected under threat of violence onto females. Transgender activists are increasingly being “out” about the sexual basis of their transgenderism. Even long-time activists who railed against the obvious sexual basis of transgenderism for males are beginning to stop trying to deny it. Julia Serano, Riki Wilchens, Tobi Hill-Meyers, Zinnia Jones, etc are playing catch-up with younger transitioners who are unashamedly and openly embracing their autogynephilia. For males, transgender is a sexual orientation based on the desire to be seen as a sexualized female “object”. For females, transgender is an escape from that same role.
