Lately a disturbing big shift in how radical feminist politics regarding gender, transgenderism and trannsexuality has been reframed as “gender critical”. Let me be clear right now, I am NOT “gender critical”. I am against gender. I am a gender abolitionist. Gender is bad m’kay? Calling the radical feminist perspective on gender “critical” is a santized, middle-caste liberal way of trying to make what is not a respectable opinion, out to be one. It becomes a disingenuous way of getting men involved in the discussion too – just what we don’t need or even want!
The term “gender critical” sounds like something out of academentia. It doesn’t actually state a position. It states one is critical of something. Well its easy to be critical about a lot of things and still maintain them as institutions. I am critical of public schooling but not public schools – you see how that works? It can mean a lot of things and really ends up in women spinning their wheels talking out the sides of their mouths instead of getting to the point. Women and girls the world over do not benefit from taking a talk-shop stance on the very fabric of their oppression. The belief that it is their natural state of being AKA : GENDER.
I am not critical of that idea, I am fucking against it. That idea is misogynistic – hateful and bigoted against women and I don’t support that which is hateful and bigoted against women. Why does this even need to be explained?
The amount of “transwomen” aka men who flock to this liberal language and take it upon themselves to speak about how they’re gender-critical too is only more evidence of how the language we use matters. Its like a bad joke. Men who have such contempt for women as to behave the way they do on a daily basis, explaining back to us about how they understand our perspective. That is if they aren’t just your average autogynephilic pervert trying to divert attention away from women onto them but I digress.
How much of women identifying with the “gender critical” label is really about backlash they fear? Anytime women stand up for what is right for women they are met with backlash, and of course that is apparent with the whole gender issue. Make observations about how misogynistic and bad for women this stuff (gender) is and get met with accusations of hatred, bigotry and of course, misogynistic abuse. It makes sense why women who still care what men think would want to be able to respond to it with “I’m not hateful – I’m critical.” How comfortable for everyone. Except the women who’ve put themselves out there as targets for the crime of saying the emperor has a penis.
Terms like “gender critical” are potted terms, belonging to liberal feminism that dull the revolutionary impulse within the speaker/reader. Its important to say what we actually think and get to the fucking point. Women can’t wait.

The other day on twitter a woman I follow shared the resolution the New Turns Feminism Conference passed to no-platform feminist writer and activist Julie Bindel. In the resolution she was referred to as “vile”. Now this is immediately not a professional or appropriate way to refer to a woman, regardless of how you feel about her. It smacks of personal bias and not a legitimate excuse for no-platforming someone. The same woman looked up the definition of vile and shared with us that one of the definitions for it was “disagreeable”. How interesting!
Because yes, she is disagreeable to quite a few persons out there. But being disagreeable is what feminism is about. A disagreeable woman is a good thing. That is unless of course you believe that it is a woman’s job to be agreeable. This my dear readers is what I’d like to tackle today.
Third wave feminism/modern liberal feminism today has taken up the platform of promoting transgenderism. It is considered to be the height of feminist activism. Male transgenders are regularly given speaking arrangements, book deals and generally sought out as the go-to experts on feminism. Julie Bindel was no-platformed because she takes a critical stance on the medical practice of transgenderism and follows the “old school” feminist understanding of gender being a social construct. A harmful social construct which was created to designate women as inferior and subservient to men. Because she takes this approach she is “disagreeable” and thus not welcome in any debate or discussion.
On my last post a woman in the comments section brought up that a good deal of the anger women receive for being against gender is that we are violating the gendered belief that women exist to have what she calls practical use. Because Radical Feminists do not fulfill the male fantasy of woman as compassionately accommodating to every whim we are thus “vile” aka disagreeable. This is why we consistently hear the charge of biological males making “better women than us”. Of course. Because in the misogynistic male imagination if a woman is not justifying her existence through being useful and accommodating to every male whim we aren’t actually women. We’re an aberration. We are wrong and need to be punished or just admit that we’re actually men or some such sexist shit.
There is no such thing as a man understanding what it feels like to be a woman. It is the utmost of presumption. What they are doing is projecting their beliefs about what being a woman is onto our entire sex. When we do that which disrupts the fantasy. Like say not being “compassionate” enough or not going along with anything without question we become “vile” and therefore silenced.
Modern liberal feminist projects like the New Turns Feminism Conference are participating in the silencing/punishing of women who do not conform to properly gendered behavior. The feminist community really needs to have a big think about where all of this GGG agreeable stockholmed girlfriend shit is taking us because this certainly isn’t the feminism our foremothers fought for or most of us even signed up for.

Something that has consistently disturbed me since becoming familiar with the modern transgender phenomenon is how infantile most of the communication and dialogue around it is. Oftentimes the propaganda put out looks like creepy little kids drawings or cartoons and they have references to genitalia, etc.
This is also a part of autogynephilic trans fetishism. I found this website on feminization whereby grown men, often in middle age or older are put through humiliating ritualized feminization which is something actual little girls go through. These men find erotic pleasure in imagining themselves as little girls going through sexual abuse and forced wearing of demeaning princess clothing. What is a horrific experience of brutal dehumanization for women is a sexual kink for these men.
This phenomenon is also apparent with late transitioning heterosexual men. They often will end dressing in the same clothes designed for teen girls. Another thing that makes them stand out even more in a crowd.
This has often been justified by transgenderists as these men going through a second puberty as they get high on the hormones they’re putting into their bodies and going through the rush of strange feelings that come with said hormones. However its more than that. These men have an erotic attachment to the objectification of women and get off on the idea of themselves being the objects of the male gaze.
“girls” can have penises too! Unfortunately the person who created this is an ADULT.
I’ve known all this for awhile but as time progresses
you start to see connections more and more closely, deeply. The educational comics on transgenderism put out by younger M2Ts have the same creepy, girlhood appropriative vibe.
Another example that I came across recently is “Riley – the adult baby“. Riley is a transgender male who spends the majority of his life pretending to be a female infant. None of his imaginary play has anything to do with what its like to be an actual infant girl. Its a weird creepy male projection of what he thinks female babies are like. Notice in the video his coy flirtatious shit. Men LOVE to pretend that is some kind of innate female characteristic and not a result of brutal socialization into a secondary sex role.
Even the educational images like this have a disturbing childlike naivete to them. They’re talking about heterosexual fucking causing pregnancy. Color me SURPRISED!
The people creating these and disseminating them are for the most part adults. There of course are some teenagers on tumblr sharing them but they aren’t coming from teenaged minds.
Now I wanna ask why its considered inappropriate and wrong for adult women to be creeped out by this and to not want to be around it? Apart from the consistent sexism of associating womanhood with perpetual childhood, the references to little girls with penises is just nauseating and disturbing on a gut instinctual level. It’s also becoming our reality as more and more children are being put through transition. It reeks of sexual grooming and mental illness more than a political statement.

Last month liberal
feminist opportunist Amanda Marcotte typed up this piece of shit exclaiming to readers who mainly didn’t give a fuck that a global group of women who call themselves radical feminists and generally adhere to the same principles politically do not exist! Those of us who do call ourselves radical feminists aren’t MORE (she believes radical means ‘more’) feminist than liberal feminists like herself. I found that a little queer seeing as myself and others definitely do exist, our principles and politics have definitely not become mainstream feminism at all and our revolutionary work of liberating the female sex caste from her sex caste oppression has yet to be achieved. She censored only let those who would add to the discussion comment and thus radical feminists were yet again left wondering if we don’t exist, if we’re so out of step, if we’re just a few “reactionaries” (for putting the advancement of women above all else) why all the bother? Why even talk about us at all?
But just as I was looking through twitter I saw someone in my timeline tweet at Amanda Marcotte so I thought I’d take a gander at her feed to see what sort of intelligent discourse she was bringing to the table today. Lo and behold :
Now I know this can’t possibly be the case. Many have patiently taken the time to explain at length how gender identity harms females specifically. There’s been multiple examples of males who are violent towards women transitioning and thus getting access to private spaces where females are especially vulnerable to attack, like bathrooms, locker rooms, etc. Even celebrities like Roseanne Barr and Kola Boof have taken a stand against a trans male who exposed himself (cock and balls y’all) to teen girls in Olympia WA and when the girls complained were told they had to change in a closet (in direct violation of title IX laws which give females equal access to sports in education) Even cases where men who murder their wives are able to get reassignment surgery with the taxpayers footing the bill for their sexual perversions.
There’s also the many cases of women who’ve come forward speaking of abuse at the hands of these males, many of whom have defended them in the past. So my question to Amanda is this:
What sort of justice is there in this world where someone can treat facts so flippantly and still have a platform? What sort of feminist actually puts the wants of men above the actual lives and rights of women? I can talk snarky shit on people who I think are wrong, where’s my validation from the male liberal media?
