My earlier post asking other gay men to really take up the issue of our lesbian sisters being called “bigots” by trans women(M2T) for not sexually or romantically engaging with them. Step back and look closer: Heterosexual Males ganging up on lesbian women for not sleeping with them. Males who hold an ideology that their power of “identity” can transcend most physical realities, and as such they are as much a valid lesbian as a born female lesbian, and if this falls into question with a female born lesbian she is a transphobic bigot.
Quite a few people have made mention of my focus seemingly solely on trans women. Because of this they like to call me a “transmisogynist” in lieu of just plain ole “transphobic”. Don’t worry though, I get that too. The focus on trans women over trans men(F2T) is due primarily for two reasons. The first being that trans women are by far the more aggressive people in these two categories reguarlly attacking and slandering women, specifically lesbians, in a constant manner. Get online, see what’s happening.
Because They are serving as the aggressors in this situation by imposing on women who wish to be left alone and are entitled to their views, they by far have the most visibility. The second reason is I don’t particularly feel it appropriate to have many of the conversations I would have with a Trans woman with a Trans man, who would be better suited to speak to females, and be called out by females and not by a male. The only time I would feel it appropriate to have that conversation with a trans man would be if this trans man was claiming a gay male identity, and like what transwomen are doing, go on a rampage against gay men who understand what homosexual means.
So, lets have this hypothetical conversation to help put things in perspective for gay men who are setting on the fence about this issue. I feel like many of us are skeptical to actually dive into the issue, full throttle, both feet in, because we have pity for Trans women. We can, in part relate to their struggle, but we are judging them by their perceived shared oppression and not by their content or their narrative. We are not addressing the trans/queer ideology that the community is bathing in, and how deeply homophobic this is. So the hypothetical is this: Gay males are bombarded by trans men activist who are trying to both wedge their way into gay spaces and culture, and who are ready to shame and demand on the topic of linking up romantically or sexually with bio gay men if those men stand their ground that the word “homosexual” actually means something. Once more with feeling: HomoSEXual. Your “gender expression” means nothing to us. We are HomoSEXuals not HomoGENDERuals.
So, lets say this is actually happening to gay men. That every time we log on to our social media accounts we are accosted with insults “Prick, bigot, Cis, transphobe, fetishist” etc. Because we have made it public that we are homosexual and we know that word has meaning. Would big gay organizations take notice then? Or go along with the trans narrative and then we could be dubbed some weird acronym male equivalent of “TERF”. I doubt we would be going along with heterosexual women claiming to be gay guys demanding we sleep with them to affirm them as male. Now I say this is all hypothetical, It’s not, it’s quickly becoming a reality and these conversations are growing in the queer community about how horrible homosexuals are. All of us, but with the most intense focus being on lesbians. Soon I’m predicting we will see more of a push from the trans community against the gay male segment of the population with the progression of this becoming accepted in community circles. And how self serving will the outcry be then? Lesbians are homosexuals, they have my support and they should have yours. Any self respecting gay man would support a lesbians right to be a homosexual without shame.
There will be some men in the gay community who will side with the trans ideology, as there are some women in the lesbian community that do as well. This is unfortunate because it seemingly validates what is happening in the minds of some people. I am totally prepared and willing to play the true scotsman game here. No TRUE homosexual man will be romantic or sleep with a trans man because what he would be doing by doing that is engaging in a heterosexual activity, being intimate with a biological female. This is not the definition of homosexual. Words have meanings, homosexual is one of those words. I know what it means , and so do many of us gay men and lesbians out there. We know what we are, we are homosexuals. we know what they are not, and they are not us.
Heterosexual trans appropriation of our history and future is very much a threat.
