Remember to always ask for specific material facts in response.
Can you name one thing about any “gender identity” that is not a performative sexist stereotype? One thing? What else is gender identity made of? Chromosomes? Brainwaves? Atoms? An invisible force? An ineffable essence? A soul? Gremlins? Thetans?
If biological sex is a white colonial construct, how did native peoples all over the world know what a woman was, or how to have babies, until white men showed up to enlighten them? How do you not hear the racism when you say that nonsense out loud?
Why did none of these “third gender” or “two spirit” systems of Native American lore allow women to identify their way out of patriarchal oppression? Why were they all associated with highly patriarchal cultures? Isn’t this just another nice thing that men had, that women did not: the ability to opt out of gender conformity?
Trans people are not intersex. Why do trans activists keep glomming on to their issues? Is it because they need a foot in the door to say that men can be women and have everything that has been set aside for women if they perform enough stereotypes? How many stereotypes is the right number?
When does the individual’s sex change? Is it the lipstick, skirt, wig, leg shaving, voice coaching, hormone treatments, or vaginoplasty? Is it the mustache, the baggy clothes, the crew cut, the hairy legs, the testosterone-deepened voice, or phalloplasty?
What is the specific material difference between a trans woman and a man? Between a trans man and a woman?
What does it mean to “live as a woman” or “live as a man”? Do all men live the same? Do all women live the same? If trans women are women and trans men are men, but men and women don’t all live the same, then what do trans women have in common with women and trans men with men that we should consider them the same sex class?
What does it mean to “feel like a woman” or “feel like a man”? Do all men feel the same? Do all women feel the same? If trans women are women and trans men are men, but men and women don’t all feel the same, then what do trans women have in common with women and trans men with men that we should consider them the same sex class?
Jazz Jennings is a gender dysphoric gay boy chemically and surgically altered into a simulacrum of feminine stereotypes. Caitlyn Jenner became an autogynephile through consumption of pornography and intense narcissism, taking a weird interest in his daughter-in-law before taking her name. What do these two people have in common that we should consider them a single class of person?
Chase Strangio is a gender dysphoric woman who dislikes performing the pornified sexist stereotypes of “gender” so much that she rejected womanhood altogether and became a trans man. What does this person have in common with Jazz Jennings and Caitlyn Jenner that we should consider them all a single class of person?
Nonbinary, multigender, and genderfluid identities vacillate in gender expression, while agenders prefer to be androgynous or neuter. What do these people have in common with Jazz Jennings, Caitlyn Jenner, and Chase Strangio that we should consider them all a single class of person?
All of these persons exist. They all claim to be valid. How do they all fit in a single box? Is it just a box of gender nonconformity?
I literally do not know a single person who is 100 percent gender conforming. Are they all trans? Are we all trans? Because if a word describes everything, then it describes nothing.
Oh! I’m sorry! I struck a nerve! You say you feel erased? How terrible for you. No really, isn’t that just terrible for you?
Now do you understand what women feel like when you erase them?
What lesbians feel like as their spaces are colonized by penis?
How female prisoners feel when an intact rapist is housed with them?
The crushing realization that all your daughter’s hard training was not enough because a man is on the track?
The agony of detransition, as your former community and support services disappear because unhappy outcomes are inconvenient to the official narrative of “affirmation”?
What about transwidows, and the children of adult men who transition? Why are they only allowed to ever express positive feelings when clearly their feelings are anything but?
Do you empathize, maybe, just a little bit, with someone who’s on the wrong end of the power dynamic that this blinkered ideology creates?
