I Don’t Care About That TERF Pussy Church And Neither Should You

23 Aug

There’s been a bit of a hub-bub lately over the IRS granting non-profit status/recognition to an anti-trans Pussy Church of Final Judgement or whatever. On the surface, this definitely seems like some seriously bad news.

On one hand, the Trump administration has displayed a growing commitment to redefine anti-LGBT discrimination as a matter of “Religious Freedom/Expression.” On the other hand, TERFs and other typically secular anti-trans movements are increasingly adapting the playbooks and accepting funding from the anti-LGBT Religious Right. Advocacy and acceptance of trans rights and visibility of our needs has been a largely recent thing, and the current political climate has seen increasing hostility and the looming threat of losing what small gains that have been made.

People have been asked my opinion on this, because I’ve had a reputation for dunking TERFs that goes back years before I got a pussy myself. It would be remiss of me to not put something out there regarding The Psychic Temple of Pussy Youth or whatever. So I thought for a bit over what I wanted to write. However, honestly this doesn’t seem quite so dire when you take a minute or two to think about it. I mean –

Okay First Of All That Fucking Name

There was a real opportunity here for TERFs. They could have formalized an organized sect of Dianic Wicca for instance. Called it “The Sisters Of Mary Daly” or something with similar gravitas and sense of reverence. But no, TERFs gotta be oh so clever with everything they do, so now it’s the Super Special Pussy Power No Penis Boys Allowed Church. This is not going to work out well for them in the long run.

I literally cannot wait for a case against this group to go to court. I cannot wait to see a representative of this group argue to a crusty elderly ninth circuit court judge that they have a First Amendment right to discriminate against trans people because they “worship at the altar of pussy” or whatever. That’s practically begging for a contempt of court verdict, no matter how many tax forms you filled out.

You want to see how well this will turn out? Look up any number of cases regarding the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster and driver license photos. There’s a handful of wins here and there, but largely it’s a disaster and considered an embarrassing joke. There’s a certain decorum expected when making claims or appeals towards upholding your deeply-held religious belief and expression, and claiming membership in a Holey Pussy Church isn’t gonna win anyone over in that regard.

It Couldn’t Be A More Transparent Honey Trap

So like, at this point it’s pretty well known who is behind this thing. If you don’t know, ask around about it on Twitter. I’m kind of thinking a certain someone must have fallen off the wagon because this scheme is a bit harebrained even for them. But anyway, despite being off the grid for a bit, they seem to be back to their old playbook.

It’s an old, tired playbook, y’all. We should all be familiar with it by now. Can we not be stupid about it this time? They want you to grouse and be upset by their existence and create screen-cappable posts they can claim are “threats” for the sake of their persecution complex and recruitment appeals. You’ve seen blogs compiling these posts, many of which go back to like 2010. Once they find a post they hold onto it forever. It’s not a type of fame you want.

If they can’t find anything they’ll just make stuff up, so why hand them ammo? Even now on r/GenderCritical or whatever they are going over this post with a fine-tooth comb for something to sob over…

“HE… HE SAID DUNKING! DUNKING LIKE IN WITCH TRIALS! THAT IS CLEARLY WHAT IS MEANT BY THAT! TAPPING INTO THE UMPTY THOUSAND YEARS OPPRESSION OF WOMEN BY PENISMALES IN DRESSES! THE USE OF SUCH DELIBERATELY CRUEL LANGUAGE IS PROOF THAT MISTER RANI IS AND FOREVER WILL BE, ON A SPIRITUAL LEVEL, A MALE PENISMAN!”
somebody on r/GenderCritical probably

The Endgame Is Sort Of Obvious, And Kinda Sad

I know these people aren’t stupid.

The likelihood of this church being used to facilitate workplace or housing discrimination is pretty slim. The idea that they will join forces with the Religious Right to sponsor some sort of Holy Bathroom Police Militia is unlikely. Hell, the idea that they are going to actually find anything more than token lipservice support from the Dark Web Free Speech Vanguard is practically non-existent.

So what are they up to? This may be premature of me to guess, but given what I know about who and what is involved with this organization, I have a pretty good idea. I’m willing to bet dollars to donuts the endgame of this group is to use it as a base to form a new trans-excluding women’s festival around. Yeah, like Michfest, remember ever caring about that? Seems like a century ago.

But anyway, if this turns out to be the case oh my god can we let these people have their sad stinky hippie festival full of terrible music now? Trump is literally going to kill us all and these clowns have made it more than clear they are willing to burn down everything and help erect a Gilead 2.0 if they can at least guarantee making a few trans women’s lives harder along the way.

A Master-Post Of Gendercrits Appealing to The Homophobic Religious Right #TERF #TERFLogic

2 Jun

rightwingterf2rightwingterf7

Figured this might be a worthwhile resource to put out there. Gendercrits have quite a few heinous tricks up their sleeve: a penchant for internet blackface, faking intersex status, siding with pedophiles, mocking cultural third gender people in a clearly white-supremacist manner, etc. That really shouldn’t be surprising at this point; it’s what their movement is all about. I just find it fascinating that their crowd, while championing some sort of utopia free from gender, aligns so frequently and so easily with the repressive far-right. I recently found myself on the recieving end of this, when my birth name, an ancient photo of me, and complete fabrications about my sexual orientation were passed along to a homophobic blogger to display for his 80,000 followers:

rightwingterf6
I’m not a self-proclaimed anything, much less a “translesbian”.

It doesn’t really matter that Robert Stacy McCain‘s 80K strong Twitter fanbase is almost entirely spambots… although it bears repeating that Robert Stacy McCain is so sad and pathetic that his Twitter fanbase is almost entirely spambots. It’s vexing, but I’ll get over it, that Gender Fatigue has to paint me as claiming to be lesbian (which I never have) and insisting that I’m a heterosexual man (which at no point in my adult life have I ever been) in order to re-contextualize my concerns with their support of right-wing homophobes. It’s just particularly damning that the homophobic religious far-right seems to be so easily at their beck and call… almost as if their own rules are meaningless. They certainly don’t seem to have any ideological consistency when it comes to what is and isn’t a slur-

rightwingterf1Gendercrits sure are… something.

So just figured I’d dump off screencaps I’ve collected over the years of gendercrits championing the religious right. Either by sharing articles from right wing sources or outright advocating for them. Further reference can be found in my “About That ‘250 Cases Of Transgender Violence'” article. This will probably use this as a resource in further, more elaborate articles. But for now, without further ado-

There’s A New Racist Violent Fake-Intersex Gendercrit Trans In Town, And He’s Gonna Make Us Pay.

23 May

fakeintersex1Aw shit we’re in trouble now.

How long has it been since I wrote about racist asshole Mark Angelo Cummings? Gosh it’s been forever, and boy have times changed. First of all, apparently he’s intersex now, on top of his appropriation of Native American two-spirit spirituality:

  fakeintersex9fakeintersex4fakeintersex5

Wait, deep voice? But just five years ago Mark was claiming that he was a natural soprano and that he lost his high-pitched voice from hormone therapy:

fakeintersex6

Have I mentioned yet that he is racist? Because Mark (Maritza?) Angelo Cummings is super racist. Also apparently he has Aspergers now too because why not. It’s not like he’s literally the flippant identity-politics nightmare he claims other trans folks are, appropriating whatever label reinforces his special snowflake status:

fakeintersex3

Anyways, Mark is officially gendercrit now, a turn of events I literally prophesied back in August. And of course like all the others, he somehow can’t detransition because “reasons”:

fakeintersex10

This sort of shit is predictable as clockwork; abusive, disgraced, socially conservative, frequently white-supremacist talking heads taking up this mantle to deflect criticism. Because the gendercrit movement will literally forgive any violence as long as the victim is born-male and the perpetrator screams “tranny” a lot. Pedophile sex-offenders like Nelson Garcia, homophobic straightbro eco-terrorists like Jonah P Mix; hell Mark isn’t even the gendercrit movement’s first intersex-faker.

fakeintersex12

fakeintersex11

Now lemme take a second to say this about that. Folks are gonna twist this, but nothing going on in this article is about violent racist fake-intersex Mark Angelo Cummings being a gendercrit, TERF, whatever. Y’all can have him with my blessing. Y’all deserve each other. While I have your attention tho; I’m perfectly aware that abusive snowflakes like Mark that scream all the time about their tapestry of elaborate self-identities is not a typical example of the gendercrit movement. Although I share little in common in political stance with them, I’m not unsympathetic to their concerns; I’m not ignorant or unaware of where they are coming from. I just think the stances are intellectually dishonest to the point of insulting everyone’s intelligence and frequently hypocritical to the point where it interferes with the message. I’ve probably said a billion times that I wasn’t far off from becoming gendercrit when I detransitioned a decade ago:

fakeintersex13this whole issue makes me uncomofortable for so many reasons

But all of this is neither here or there; have I mentioned that Mark Angelo Cummings (allegedly) beats his partners?

fakeintersex14

Now, I admit, I said some pretty mean things about Jessica when her and Mark were together, and I really feel bad about that now because holy shit. I’m not saying what is true or not in this very personal situation (that just happened to be aired out publicly on the internet) but… Just look at the way the dude and his new girlfriend gloats about her not filing a police report…. the following is not how people typically respond to allegations of something that didn’t happen:

fakeintersex15fakeintersex16I hope you’re (allegedly) taking notes, Lynna.

Note the use of gendercrit language as a shield/validation for the (alleged) abuse. It’s awfully convenient that Mark is adopting this new gendercrit identity while he’s in the middle of grooming a new partner. It’s not like the movement is particularly isolating to trans women, and it’s not like enforced isolation of partners is a red flag symptom of (alleged) serial domestic abusers.

fakeintersex17

fakeintersex18This. Will. (Allegedly). Not End Well.

And of course of course of course of course Lynna isn’t gonna be detransitioning either, because “reasons”. Even though gender dysphoria isn’t a thing, and is just misguided narcissism? Which is ok for them (but nobody else) to continue to indulge because???

fakeintersex19fakeintersex21fakeintersex22The “voice of reason” in the trans community, y’all.

Also, as an aside, her Facebook likes are fucking hilarious.

fakeintersex20Goddamnit, Zoe Tur.

Anyway, this whole thing is hilarious and absurd so I’m just gonna post this and wait for good old Mark to haunt my comment section for months like he does. You know, being all “well-balanced and happy with his life unlike me” and all. Have I mentioned lately that Mark Angelo Cummings is racist?

This Is What “Gender Abolition” Looks Like.

31 Jul

gendercrit7

I’ve said it before and I say it again: if there was a movement that actually seemed earnestly devoted to the abolition of gender, you couldn’t possibly sign me up fast enough. That gender-crits reframe tolerance and respect for the existence and experience of trans individuals as somehow being “pro-gender” is ludicrous. I, for one, have absolutely zero devotion or loyalty or wish to advocate for the hierarchal structure of gendered social roles, expectations, and behaviors that degrade all women and see women like me as below garbage for somehow “eschewing” some sort of birthright by not being a heterosexual conforming man.

But in practice by it’s proponents, “Gender Abolition” is a buzzword, not unlike “War On Terror” or “War On Drugs”… an lofty claim with no clear plan and more often than not used as an excuse to rationalize shitty behavior they were gonna do anyway. You don’t even have to take my word for it, they’re perfectly capable of making their actual motivations clear.

gendercrit30gendercrit27

But then, this is the Gender Abolitionist/”gender critical” movement, the “radical” movement where lived experience is meaningless and all the “facts” are sourced from FOX News. Where sensible shoes will alleviate gender dysphoria and overthrow compulsive heteronormativity and toxic hegemonic masculinity forever.

Where literally the most homophobic organization in existence is considered “pro-woman” simply by virtue of their mutual hatred of trans women.

gendercrit15Thank god the TERFs are so willing to stand up for the poor, oppressed WBC

Where a “male-born” (their term, not mine) can joke about throwing a “female-born” (their term, not mine) person in a volcano (a form of human sacrifice that claimed the lives of hundreds of women), and it’s a-ok because the “female-born” person is trans.

gendercrit14

Where literally the only original commentary a supposedly “pro-woman” site had to the Eliot Rodger shootings was to make it all about trans women somehow.

gendercrit8

Where “TERF is a slur”, but “f*g” and “wh*re” not so much.

gendercrit25 gendercrit13

Where sexualized violence and threats of disclosure against us are literally treated as a joke:

gendercrit24 gendercrit16

Where folks display a laughably disjointed historical perspective:

gendercrit21

Where pedophiles can be considered “pro-woman” somehow because of mutual hatred of trans women:

gendercrit5

Where the ideology and positions on gender transition and identity are functionally identical to that of the Southern Baptist Convention:

gendercrit6

Where they coyly claim that their stated desire to “mandate us out of existence” is simply a turn of phrase, and then openly discuss how they will literally mandate us out of existence:

gendercrit17

Where questioning the assumption that you are some sort of unnatural rape monster with interests inherently at odds with other sexual assault survivors, means your own status as a survivor is deliberately erased because you didn’t live up to their specifications:

gendercrit18

Speaking of detransition, I’ve already been there, and managed to snap out of it before it killed me. So, of course I should go back and do it again because you say so:

gendercrit22

Where they preach all day about this imaginary “pressure to transition” that gender-non-conforming gay folk experience from the trans community, when in reality the opposite happens:

gendercrit20

Where they supposedly speak for “every woman”, even the women that go out of their way to make it clear they don’t speak for them. Give it a rest, Whitney.

gendercrit1

Because ultimately what it comes down to is that You Are What They Say You Are:
