isjustmenow said: Hey sister :), So... I think we agree on a lot of things, and have just decided to tackle the ideology practice differently. Hence, my questions based in a place of curiosity. If you've already answered this, then forgive me, but what is your ideal world for dysphoric peeps? What is your vision for gender non conforming peeps?
I’m pretty sure we’re not on the same page. Looking at your blog, you are pro-porn, take the word “slutshaming” seriously, sexualize a trans man’s informational post about binding, and are interested in defending gender non-conforming men.
My ideal world for gender non-conforming people is female-exclusive. I don’t give a shit about males. I devote exactly 0.00000% energy to pondering how a patriarchal world could better accept the male outliers.
My ideal world is womyn’s land. My ideal society is matriarchal. My vision is entirely distinct from any augmentation of our society that is possible; it is a completely different sort of world. Michfest is a small model in the right direction towards what that world could look like:
A world where healing is possible. A world where we don’t feel driven to change or hurt our bodies. A world where we can afford to be vulnerable and look at the roots of our pain. A world where we can start deconstructing systems of oppression. A world where we can do more than simply fight to survive. A world where trauma isn’t sexualized. A world where gender is rendered nonsensical. A world where dykes are the norm, and womyn like me aren’t driven to suicide… or feeling like Hothead Paisan every fucking day.
A world without goddamn men.
in general Calling Out Girls On Being Bad Feminists is not a job for men to do
Luis Morales, now Synthia China Blast is not the first man incarcerated for murder that Laverne Cox has publicly advocated for. Earlier this year on Amy Goodman’s Democracy Now, Cox spoke in favor of Robert “Michelle” Koselik obtaining SRS surgery while jailed for life for strangling his wife Cheryl Koselik and nearly severing her head from her body which he dump in a mall parking lot.
Cox tried to frame Koselik, a man imprisoned for life for a grisly murder that left his young teenage son without a mother and with an imprisoned father who had adopted a female persona and name, as needing SRS for “life-saving healthcare”. Why an incarcerated man in his 60’s would need cosmetic surgery on his genitals to live, Cox did not answer.
Cox expressed concerned that “for 60 years in mainstream media we’ve been sensationalizing trans folks and sensationalizing transition, instead of humanizing, really fully humanizing.” How trans people would be humanized and transitioned desensationalized by a convicted wife killer obtaining the cosmetic surgery on his genitals that he desired paid for by the prison system that was housing him for said wife killing, Cox did not and most likely could not explain.
Nor did Cox stop to consider how does Cheryl’s family feel about her killer assuming the identity of a woman after killing a real woman so brutally. Cox also did not pause to ask if Koselik would be housed with female prisoners after his SRS and would that be a violation of their rights to not be housed with predatory males. Cox’s only concern seemed to be validating SRS as a medical procedure that all people who ID as trans are entitled too. But in the context of talking about SRS for a violent male who has killed women, this means a woman’s murderer being allowed to legally assume the gender of his victim and be called “she”. Frankly, it seems self serving on Cox’s part and completely erases not only Cheryl, the woman killed, but all women as we are never considered as people who might have opinions about a woman killer being granted the legal status of “she” by other men.
