Returning to my car with my groceries some people were staring at me from their vehicle and they blocked me for getting out of my parking space. They approached my vehicle and were calling me names. As I went to get help, their 4×4 truck came racing towards me on the zebra crossing. They would have hit me hard if I had not managed to dive out of the way. Some other shoppers shouted at them that it would be assault and so they drove off shouting “Just you wait ’till we see you again!”
So, I got to thinking: “What is that causes such unprovoked hostility? I’m not doing anything to upset them.”
Is trans-activism a problem?
Trans activists are generally seen as whiny “special snowflakes”, but that image is a result of social justice warriors. Often themselves not transgender, said SJWs usually have a left wing political and/or feminist agenda, and are usurping the trans rights campaign by proxy.
A few weeks ago there was a radio show on Radio New Zealand where self appointed transgender spokes people voiced their opinions. One of the questions was about the publicity of Bruce Jenner coming out and transitioning to Caitlyn. It was acknowledge that her high profile had increased significantly the awareness of transgender being distinct from homosexuality, but then they went on to imply that it was somehow connected to a recent increase in the number of violent assaults on trans women of color.
I don’t see any causal link there. I think that Caitlyn expressing her right-wing political views help dispel the perception of trans people as whiny lefties and I have no objection to her showing that we trans people are all individuals and not to just be swept into the big pot of sexual deviants labelled LGBT.
One thing that harms out cause is the insistence by some activists that underage children should be allowed to choose gender, but a child has nothing to compare it to and has not yet experienced sexuality or gender identity as an adult. What I think would be wrong, is to impress on a child that he or she will need to have a sex change in order to be their real selves: Maybe we should allow them to explore gender and simply let them know that it’s OK for boys to be effeminate and for girls to act masculine, yet obsessive transgender SJW activists are shutting down beneficial support facilities. The general public then rightly objects to what they see as child abuse.
It’s not their religion:
Some assume that it’s religious zealots, however I have found that Christians are on the whole relatively tolerant of trans people, and the Bible seems to express that we can be accepted in the kingdom of heaven as a trans woman is biologically a eunuch in Biblical times.
Indeed there is nothing in there that says what kind of clothing would be appropriate for a eunuch to wear and being transgender does not imply any kind of sexuality.
It’s their obsession with sex:
The accusations are, of us preying on women in the ladies wash rooms even though there is no evidence of that actually ever happening.
Surely if we really wanted sex with a female person then we would have been better off staying men and having a straight romance with a woman… so that’s just illogical.
Another fear that the cissies entertain is that we are masquerading as women to seduce straight men into having gay sex… but hang on… would it not be easier to remain a man and have gay sex with a gay man, if that’s what we wanted?
So these fears are simply irrational. Yet the cissies believe it, because it is their own subconscious desires that they project onto us trans people, rather than confront the ugly truth about themselves.
Just plain crazy?
Regardless if certain behavior is on average more common to one gender that to the other. Gender related behaviors can be found both in trans people and cis people, yet in a trans person it is interpreted negatively as some kind of perversion and indicative of a mental disorder. Without appreciating that these behaviors are natural to humans, the general public liken transgender with derision to delusions like trans-racial and trans-species for which there is no real scientific basis other than them being delusional.
Then I saw the a transgender group on Facebook for transgender dating, and the image they use definitely suggests various paraphilia, and I thought how that really throws us right back into the camp of psychiatric disorders and sexual perversion…
… until I had though about it some more. Trans people are no less entitled to cosplay and wear sexy things when engaging in adult behavior. This is a dating group… and ypu can expect the same sort of things you might find in any group of people looking for adult fun. I think the cissies (opposite of “trannies”) need to stop being such hypocrites and look at their own sexual proclivities… although I personally still think this particular image alludes to some kind of connexion with bestiality and trans-species nonsense… still… live and let live I say.
The general public have no justification for aversion, hatred or fear of trans people. Those who are transphobic are hypocritically projecting their own problems onto a minority that is easy to target and we should be entitled to equal protection under the law against assault.
