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.

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.

Predators and Safe Spaces – Eva Comrie

Thank you, thank you, thank you. & this is happening, not just in Scotland (the land from where my ancestors hailed & from where I still have relatives), but in Canada & the US.

As a survivor of domestic violence, as someone who had to stay in more than one DV shelter, I can attest that if I had to deal with a MAN pretending to be a WOMAN in one of these places, I would have lost whatever small bit of sanity I had at that time. There’s no fucking way I would have been able to deal with that BS. I was already so horribly traumatized that having to deal with that kind of narcissism would have definitely been a bridge too far.

There’s no reason why transpeople can’t create their OWN spaces. The only reason they don’t is that MRA’s & TRA’s want to obliterate women-only spaces.


Dead Wild Roses

Male violence (and the threat of male violence) still shapes women’s lives here in 21st century.  We have not advanced past the stage of needing female only spaces and strong rules regarding the safeguarding of women and children from predatory men.  The transgender idea of self – identification inserts a gigantic loophole into conventional safeguarding techniques thus rending safeguarding untenable and unsafe for women. Human beings cannot change sex and we should not as a society entertain legislation and legal fictions that promote this dangerous idea.

“I learned that predators don’t have ‘PREDATOR’ tattooed on their foreheads. They tend, at least to begin with, to resemble your next door neighbour or friendly uncle. They don’t announce themselves as perverted.They seem friendly, helpful and ever so keen to please, the kind of people who go out of their way to befriend, perhaps proffer little gifts, some pocket money, tell a few…

Refuting The Transgender Ideological Platform – This is when they try and be concise…

Great article! Money shot: “Consider the case of religion. I am free to believe in Jesus, Mohammad, Buddha – I am not, however, free to compel you to believe in any of the aforementioned religious deities.

“Same with gender religious beliefs. If you think that wearing a dress and heels and feeling like a woman makes you a woman go right ahead. I should be under no pressure whatsoever to not believe the claim that wearing a dress and heels and ‘feeling like’ a woman turns you into an adult human female.”

Dead Wild Roses

An individual on Twitter has seen fit to ‘tackle’ all of the opposing talking points deployed against transgender ideology. Let’s see and talk about them here.

A limited and simplistic definition that is correct? Heaven forbid.  Concision is a beautiful thing. Accurate descriptions of the reality we inhabit are a boon to meaningful discussions and debate.

Transgender women, that is to say men who through gender-magic think they are women, remain male.  For a quick self demonstration please identify as rich and demand entrance into the Davos conference, or even identify as royalty and demand entrance into Buckingham Palace.  Thinking you are something does not, in fact, make you that something.

Culturally and legally speaking?  I have no idea what this phrase means.  Men in some jurisdictions have pushed through laws that allow them to change legal documents such as passports and birth certificates, but legal fictions that do not…

Please Help Stop the Erasing of Radical Lesbian Feminism

WOW! So powerful!

Working Class Radical Feminism by Bev Jo

Please Help Stop the Erasing of Radical Lesbian Feminism

Bev Jo

Just as Lesbians are being erased by our oppressors, our Lesbian Feminist politics are also being erased. I worry that when those of us who know our history are gone, any lie can be told about us and our Radical Lesbian Feminist culture. They aren’t even waiting until we are dead.

Those who do not bother to learn our history condemn us to repeat the same horrors endlessly. One antidote to this poison is to question everything not Radical Lesbian Feminist. Why is the “new” version better (especially when most of it looks like a return to the Lesbian-hating Fifties)? And why does it serve males, rather than women, girls, and Lesbians? Any time we object, no discussion is allowed, while ridicule and gang-piling are used to censor the truth.

Each of these myths are becoming accepted even though…

The Battle Against Malignant Transactivism – Julie Bindle


Dead Wild Roses

This is an excerpt from Bindle’s article on Unherd titled Trans Activisms’s War on Solidarity.

“I’ve interviewed dozens of de-transitioners who have been cast asunder after expressing regret about transitioning. I also know many trans people who are perfectly happy with their decision — but none of them believe it is reasonable to demand that they encroach women-only spaces such as domestic violence refuges, rape crisis services, prisons or hospital wards.

The problem, after all, is not trans people. It is extreme trans activism — a men’s rights movement which has grown out of the backlash against feminism, in particular the type of feminism that seeks to eradicate male violence towards women and girls.

For me, the costs of being targeted in this way have been enormous — and not just in relation to my unpaid activism. The mob follows me around, preventing me from speaking on how to…

The DWR Feminist Quote of the Day – Gail Dines on Pornography


Dead Wild Roses

“Pornography has socialized a generation of men into watching sexual torture,” Dines said. “You are not born with that capacity. You have to be trained into it. Just like you train soldiers to kill. If you are going to carry out violence against a group you have to dehumanize them. It is an old method. Jews become kikes. Blacks become niggers. Women become cunts. And no one turns women into cunts better than porn.” 

Gail Dines quoted from the TruthDig Article Pornography is what the end of the world looks like.

This REALLY pissed me off this morning

This was in a Washington Post article from October 1st. I missed it originally, but thanks to Mike the Mad Biologist’s Daily Links, I read the article, which was really informative & interesting. DO read it, especially if you’re interested in American history, the history of the American South, & the history of American slavery.

What pissed me off was this:

“For White Americans, genealogy is primarily a hobby. It’s a leisure pursuit. But for African Americans, it’s much deeper than that. It’s a yearning to know who came before you.“ ~ Toni Carrier, genealogist and anthropologist


I have been TOTALLY & FULLY interested in my genealogy since before I was TEN YEARS OLD. I remember sitting at the picnic table with my grandmother, listening to her stories of “the olden days”, with a notebook, so I could take notes as she spoke … I STILL HAVE THOSE NOTES. I still have the very first family tree I created of my family…actually, my father’s side of the family. I learned about my mother’s side a few years later. When I was an adult, I received a family tree from a distant cousin in Britain who had traced the MacDavid/McDavid line back to the 12th century. Apparently we are related to William Wallace. My great-great-grandmother on my father’s side was a Wallace. My great-uncle was named Wallace. We are also related to the Erskines & the Irvines. If you know anything about Scots history, you will recognize those names.

White people don’t have a yearning to know who came before you? Really? I want to know every single person in every single line going back to the beginning of fucking time – I want to know all the names of every person in my family – on my father’s side – on my mother’s side – I want to know ALL the stories – I want to collect all the photographs I can – I want to know EVERYTHING that went into making ME … & how that affects my attitudes, my worldview, my religion, my politics. EVERY FUCKING THING.

I’ll be honest with you … I don’t like being called “white”. I hate that generic term. I hate generic terms in general. Be specific! I’m an American of German-Scots-Irish-French background & I want to know more about my background … because who knows what other ethnicities might be hidden in the shadows of time. My people were Northerners (Western New York State) & never owned other people. As far as I can tell, they didn’t own other people in Europe, either.

This is NOT a hobby. This is NOT a leisure pursuit. This has been a lifelong passion of mine … tracing the lines of my genealogy & creating family trees of my personal family.


I don’t know who Toni Carrier is but she needs to learn about PEOPLE. I googled her & apparently she’s the founder of the International African American Museum (which sounds like a cool place), so naturally she wouldn’t have any interest in MY story or the story of people like ME. That’s OK … people are into what they’re into. & most people are into themselves & people who are like them. But that doesn’t give her the right to dis other people. Which is what she did … saying that white people aren’t as passionate about their past as black people.


There’s a LOT of talk about racism nowadays & it’s a talk that’s long overdue. But let’s not forget that there’s a LOT of idiot talk about white people coming from people of color. Yeah, some of it is spot on but this time … IT WASN’T.

That just burned my ass this morning.

Faulty Gender Arguments Part Two – The Intersex Ploy

Another must read. “It is a travesty that we would allow male gender feelings to take precedence over the very material realty of being actually female in today’s society.” FUCK YEAH.

Dead Wild Roses

Arguing with gender ideologues can be a very disparaging and fruitless task.  Many of the argumentative styles they adopt are purely reflexive and will be based in goading or shaming the person they disagree with into silence or compliance.  The ‘social pressure’ dodge will be part three of this series.  However, the topic today is the ill considered use of the term “intersex” and intersexed people in general when used as rhetorical ammunition in a gender identity debate.

The Intersex ploy goes something like this:

There are several deformed ideas going on in this fine slice of twitter, so let’s parse them out.

1. The notion that intersex individuals are somehow outside of the sex binary.

2.  That self identification somehow trumps the biological reality of sex (i.e non binary and trans men).

3.  The notion that this third sex or sex spectrum is somehow supported by credible scientific sources.
