Robert Jensen – Critiquing Transideology isn’t Bigoted.

A must-read.

Dead Wild Roses

No idea is sacred in a society that values freedom of speech and expression. Yet, if one questions the tenets of trans-ideology then seemingly all bets are off. Disrupting one’s professional career, receiving threats, losing opportunities to speak are all possible consequences of questioning trans-ideology. That fact in itself should give pause to anyone who fancies calling themself progressive. Robert Jensen writing for commondreams.org writes eloquently on this topic.

“To be clear: Humans do create cultural meaning about sex differences. Humans who have a genetic makeup to produce sperm (males) and humans who have a genetic makeup to produce eggs (females) are treated differently in a variety of ways that go beyond roles in reproduction.

In the struggle for women’s liberation, feminists in the 1970s began to use the term “gender” to describe the social construction of meaning around the differences in biological sex. When men would say, “Women are…

SO FUCKING WRONG

I used to want to live in Canada. I live in Buffalo, NY, & Canada is right across the Niagara River from me. I have relatives on both sides of my family who are Canadian. I have spent so much time in Canada that I *feel* like I am Canadian but of course, I am NOT Canadian, I am a citizen of the United States & my *feelings* have no true reality … because feelings come & go. That’s the reality of *feelings*. They’re like the weather.

I was born in Buffalo, NY, & I have no Canadian nationality. I do know plenty of people with dual nationality but I am not one of these people, as much as I wish I was. I am only a citizen of the United States, for better or worse. Nowadays, it’s for worse … but that’s another subject.

But the way things are going in Canada right now … I guess I’ll stay here in the US. At my age & with my financial status, I couldn’t immigrate to Canada anyway. & let’s face it … I’m a Buffalo girl.

Anyway, I couldn’t believe when I read this today … A MAN was speaking for the murdered women at the École Polytechnique, which happened in 1989. OH … he *identifies* as a women … he *feels* like a woman … so I guess that makes it OK. BUT IT DOESN’T …

THEY COULDN’T HAVE FOUND A REAL WOMAN TO SPEAK ON THE BEHALF OF THESE MASSACRED WOMEN? REALLY?

The Transracephobia Deployed Against Carrie Bourassa – Appalling!

My Great-grandfather & my grandfather were both adopted by the Serrano tribe in San Bernadino, CA. in the early 1900s. I have beaded belts that are over 100 years old that my grandfather gave to me when I was 10 because I always had a natural interest in Native Americans. I have never claimed to have “Native” ethnicity but I have always “felt” like one … my friends who are POC tell me that I’m not “really” white.

“Feeling” like you’re this or that doesn’t actually make you into what you’re feeling. It’s JUST a feeling. & ya know … how a man can “feeling” like a woman & then claiming to be an “actual” woman (“transwomen are women” mantra) is any different than any other person “feeling” to be a POC or a Native is beyond me.

YOU ARE WHAT YOU ARE & THAT’S THAT. ANYTHING ELSE IS A FUCKING LIE.

The New York Post reports:

“A Canadian medical researcher who rose to become the nation’s top voice on indigenous health has been ousted from her government job and her university professorship — after suspicious colleagues investigated her increasingly fanciful claims of Native American heritage and learned she was a fraud.”

“Far from being a member of the Métis nation, as she had long claimed, a laborious trace of Bourassa’s family tree revealed that her supposedly indigenous ancestors were in fact immigrant farmers who hailed from Russia, Poland, and Czechoslovakia.

Wheeler, a documented member of Manitoba’s Fisher River Cree Nation, started digging into Bourassa’s genealogical records — and took her findings to the media.

But when pressed to provide evidence of Native American heritage, Bourassa suddenly changed her story — saying that she had been adopted into the Métis community by an unnamed Métis friend of her deceased grandfather, Clifford Laroque.
