Transgender Trend

4th Wave Now

Fair Play for Women
Magdalen Berns

The bullshit is coming full circle now. A purportedly feminist organization using a slur against women who question transgender ideology. We see you Women’s March and note your centring of men in your policies. Fortunately on they are having a rough go of it on twitter as actual feminists are taking their misogyny to task.

This is why effective feminist organizing focusing on liberating females from the structures of patriarchy, rather than chasing some never to be realized notion of equality. Women never win in a patriarchy, and attempting to play by the rules is a recipe for disaster (see the gender-self-id bollocks).

Beth Stelzer speaks out against the reality denying ideology of transactivists and the clear and present danger it presents to female sporting events.

 

“Trans activists demand we accept their feelings as science and attack basic biology at its core. Ironically, their activism invokes the fear they seek refuge from, in the very group they demand inclusion in. They claim to be victims of bullying, yet they bully women incessantly.

Online harassment of those who speak up for female athletes is pervasive. After starting a website advocating for the preservation of biology-based eligibility standards for participation in women’s sport, I received an email telling me to drown in my own blood. But thanks to women like Navratilova, who is continuing to defend women’s sport, despite continued push back and online attacks, I and other athletes around the world feel emboldened to speak up.

My perspective isn’t religious or political — it is based on my experience and on scientific facts. Women should not be forced to compete with men. We have worked for generations to carve out the space we have in sport today, and we owe it to those women who fought for what we have today, as well as future generations of women and girls, to preserve female athletics. “Inclusion” might sound nice, but it could mean the demise of women’s sports altogether. If we allow men who identify as female to compete in women’s sports, there will be men’s sports and there will be co-ed sports, but women’s sports will cease to exist.

This is why I am fighting to save women’s sports.”

This is what happens when we allow men to redefine reality to match their own subjective whims.

The article here.

We do not yet know what the root causes of gender dysphoria are. But, if having an evidently male or female body causes you extreme discomfort and distress in social situations, then that is good grounds in itself for society to deal with you compassionately and to make accommodation where it can. We must seek to create a compassionate society that welcomes and supports those suffering from the crippling dysphoria that leads them to seek surgery and manipulate their hormones. It is essential that transgender people are able to survive, thrive and function freely in society without fear of discrimination. It is on that footing that we must approach transgender issues.

But tolerance and understanding of the trans experience will fail if they are based on bad and disingenuous interpretations of science. Trans people are perfectly capable of recognising the reality of biological sex, while having difficulty accepting it on a personal basis. Sound arguments for acceptance can be made without twisting and distorting our understanding of the whole of humanity and indeed the natural world – and there are signs of a trans backlash against the excesses and illogic of the genderists.2

While acknowledging the material reality that there are only two sexes, we must reject the traditional sexist view that self-expression, mannerisms, talents, ambitions and roles in life – other than reproduction itself – must be limited by, or linked to, our biological sex. The fact that much of the left unquestioningly accepts and regurgitates an ideology in which the subjective feelings of the individual trump objectively observable conditions is a sign that we have abandoned the physical, material reality on which our politics is based, and replaced it with a subjective individualism that is alien to any class-based analysis.

Sex is still one of the major axes of oppression globally: female foetuses are selectively aborted because of it, women are enslaved and trafficked into prostitution because of it, girls’ genitals are mutilated and sewn together because of it, girls in poverty are denied education because of it. The Chibok schoolgirls were not asked how they identified before being abducted and raped. Without acknowledging the reality of sex, it is impossible to even name sexism, never mind understand or defeat it.

The left must stop pretending that sex neither exists nor matters. The biological woman is not a myth – she is real, she is here – and she is angry.

The funny thing is how crazy funhouse mirror-y this ‘debate’ is.  Women have observable, material scientific fact on their side and only now are starting to be hear in the gender debate.  Speaks volumes as to how deeply ingrained patriarchy is in our societies and how little attention we pay to the evinced needs of women and how much more attention we will pay to the gender-feels of men.

It is quite satisfying to see the ideological expectations reversed and watching the resulting apoplexy as followers of the current woke transactivist ideology have to jump through their own imaginary hoops.

Identifying as genderfree looks something like this:

 

So, in identifying and fitting under the ‘trans-umbrella’ one can safely reject gender, respect biological reality and material fact.  As shown here:

 

Correctly identifying gender as a toxic construct in our societies is but the first of many small steps toward gender abolition .  The #genderfree tag has it’s place in rendering the silencing and scare tactics of transactivists effectively moot.  Their skulduggery can be used against them and thus the necessary conversation about gender and gender self id can continue.

 

 

Nice to have a clear definition, no?  Notice not a word about equality or making choices because both those strains of feminism are functionally equivalent to rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic.  Neither foster the systemic change necessary to challenge patriarchy and change society.

 

The word “radical” literally means “root,” so radical feminism is the feminism that gets to the root of women’s oppression, which is the system of patriarchy. Radical feminism is an entire well-developed political theory, but here’s a pretty good simplified summary from Radfem Collective:

“Radical Feminist theory analyses the structures of power which oppress the female sex. Its central tenet is that women as a biological class are globally oppressed by men as a biological class. We believe that male power is constructed and maintained through institutional and cultural practices that aim to bolster male superiority through the reinforcement of female inferiority. One such manifestation of the patriarchy is gender, which we believe to be a socially constructed hierarchy which functions to repress female autonomy and has no basis in biology. Radical Feminists also critique all religions and their institutions, and other practices that promote violence against women such as prostitution, pornography and FGM. The subjugation of women is a social process that has no basis in biology or any other pretext, and thus can and should be challenged and dismantled.

Radical Feminists see that our oppression as females is closely linked to and bound up in our roles as the bearers of new life and male hatred of our female reproductive power. Radical Feminists take an unequivocal stance on the right to female reproductive justice.

Radical Feminism increasingly recognizes that females from different oppressed groups experience a combination of oppressions. Class, race and disability have systematic structural impacts on different women’s lives in different toxic combinations.

Radical Feminists believe in an autonomous women’s movement as the path to women’s liberation. We believe in the importance of female only spaces where theory and action is developed from the lived reality of females who have been socialised into womanhood.”
