My talk from Let Women Speak Austin on August 12, 2023
As an effeminate gay man who would have been told I’m a girl for the things I gravitate to today, thank you for being clear and concise for calling what this movement is... a lie! There are only men and women, everything else is a lie.
You encapsulate everything that is wrong with the trans movement and why women are in a fight for our survival as women.
Succinct and righteous.
As always, thank you, Meghan, and the women on the front lines.
Meghan, you are one of my favorite "feminists" of all time -- thank you thank you thank you for your voice, your analysis, and your dedication to speaking up for reality and for the safety and rights of women and girls in all of the ways that you do.
That was a great speech. You said what needs to be said clearly, succinctly and without avarice or undue rancor. Top notch! 👍
As a big butch muscular “Castro clone”, I was an effeminate quiet pale awkward blond boy until puberty created a pale awkward pro linebacker. As a child, I was told by many many people I was a girl, except for parents and friends,
When gender bullshit appeared in the early 2000’s I warned friends that this was going to be a setback for gays lesbians ans women. I still have friends wondering why I focus on this issue today… but the failures I see and you point out - gay organizations; civil rights organizations and media - have created a catastrophic situation driving staggering cultural and political setbacks because the progressive left is now actually aligned with the far right.
We will see acceleration of excuses of imposing severe setbacks on gays and lesbians and independent self-determining women because the right are openly using this as a wedge issue, and the progressives are unable to defend comstituencies.
The fetish is a lie, as you say, but people seem to feel calling it out is wrong. Until the ACLU begins defending civil liberties and GLAAD stops defaming Gays and Lesbians, and HRC starts defending human rights, they should be defunded and their Boards and Executives Shamed until they disappear.
"Above all it is essential to refer to things by their correct names. If things are not referred to by their correct names, then our language will not reflect reality. If our language does not reflect reality, then our actions will not reflect reality, and will be exercises in futility." (Confucius, 551-479 BC, Chinese Teacher
Once again, the best bullshit detector on the internet. Thank you for being you.
