My Line In The Sand

And are you willing to change your mind if and when science gives a biological reason for trans people, and not just “theories” based on bad research.

I was reading a thread in a Michfest Facebook group the other day when I saw a woman shame and scold a friend of mine for calling a trans woman a man. This woman said she understood the anger, but not the hate of calling trans women men. In other words, she was trying to shame my friend, another woman, into silence, which is a tactic men have been using for years, especially the men who call themselves women and trans “activists.” They use shaming techniques to trick liberal feminists into siding with them and they save most of their violence for the rest of us, those of us who see past their delusions and to the reality of it all.

But I understood where my friend was coming from: it wasn’t rage or hatred or even anger, it was truth. That was her line in the sand and so…

    Funnily she’s not the worst. She at least recognizes the agency of those natal women who do not share her bigotry. She proceeds to hate them, but then. just how much harm can hate from some little marginal group do?

    Those who claim that any women disagreeing with them are “programmed”, “colonized”, whatever are the real bad ones.

    And here’s what I am posting as an answer. Unlikely to be published:

    =

    Biology equals truth so?

    Fine. And sexual relations have a primary biological purpose. And only sexual relations between a man and a woman (in the biological, thus truth, sense) meet that purpose. There surely is a secondary biological purpose of bonding, but reproduction is primary. After all reproduction is the reason sexes exist at all and everyone, in your logic, should be seen solely as their reproductive sex, not as anything not fitting their reproductive sex.

    I am looking forward to your marriage and children so. The classical definition of marriage is also based on biological truth so I guess you support it fully.

    (But, of course, gender roles have zero to do with biology – which means I’m looking forward to your marriage to some guy who is fine with a butch presentation).

        I see calling mainstream feminists “enemies” as more respectful than calling them slaves/handmaidens/whatever.

        Well aren’t “mainstream” feminists more open to debate and compromise, you don’t get anywhere without compromise.

        They are. But some radfems resort to slurring them as “colonized”, “surrendered” etc. Basically they hold to a line that any woman who disagrees with them is obeying a man.

        And if they give in to them via the techniques they use…

        I don’t know how to end this sentence but hopefully you get my drift.
