Why I Use The Word Tranny Instead Of “Transwoman” Or Other Terms: Resisting Capitulation

Due to my “cisprivilege” of gender indoctrination I do feel bad about using the word that may hurt feelings. I mean that seriously. I do feel bad but any other term is used against me by trans-activists who twist it against me. For example, I tried to use “transgender male” but they say that really means a transgender female because they “identify” as male. I have tried “M2T” (male 2  transgender) but they mocked me and said that that is a file extension. There is also the problem of this term saying that trannies are somehow not male when they “transition”, which is not true. There is MAAB (male assigned at birth) but lets face it, physical sex is not a complicated thing for the majority of humans. It is wrong for the mainstream trans movement to use intersex people, a tiny and oppressed minority, as a tool for their own devices. We know what a baby is just by looking at its genitals most of the time. Not complicated.

WBW (woman born woman) is a term I have a problem with because it is part of a weird ass queery radical lesbian thing where being a woman is somehow a form of gender. No. Woman means adult female human being. We cannot give that away. A man cannot become a woman. That is why I don’t use the term “transwoman” even though I know there are gender critical trannies who understand they are not women. While I am glad a minority of transgenders have some critical thinking skills left and I am sorry the malestream trans movement harasses them, there is the issue of many people who are not truly radical feminists such as DGR saying that gender hurts men too. That is the only way you will get male lefties to give a shit, if they think it hurts them too. But the proper radical feminist stance on gender is that men do not have one: https://scumorama.wordpress.com/2013/05/11/men-dont-have-a-gender-only-women-do/

I think there should be some term created to describe the thing male “gender critical” radicals say is gender for men: that they are expected to be macho men, militarism etc. while these things may hurt and emotionally stunt individual men they do support the social structure of male supremacy very strongly. “Gender”, something that is supposed to be an oppressive system by radical feminist standards, is something that just hurts us all! This is a contortion of RFism to suit male identified ends. One must acknowledge that gender applied to women does not give them privilege in any way. It enforces female subjugation. This is a form of revisionism. Like I said, I don’t know what to say other than to say that masculinity supports male power over women as a class. Someone could create a term to describe how masculinity hurts men while not erasing the dominance it enforces over women.

I also want to say that I do not believe that the word tranny is a deeply bigoted slur on par with the n word wrt black people and the c word wrt women. It was originally a term from the gay male drag subculture and the transgender movement appropriated it because they wanted to make their movement seem on par with struggles against racism and sexism when it does not have much historical basis which is why they have to trans the dead and why you cannot trust a lot of stats on numbers of trans people put out by NGOs because they are soooo liberal in considering who qualifies as trans.

I deal with arguing with obtuse people who pull the token: BUT THERE IS TRANSGENDER FEMALES TOO card. I want to make to make it clear as a feminist my problem is with the sexist men who enforce gender socially and shitty policies into law. When I say the word tranny they know exactly who I mean. Being unmistakeable in my meaning, even if I come off as harsh, as a feminist, is crucial. Now, wrt GNC (gender non conforming) males. I don’t know that I can call trannies gender non conforming since they do identify with articles and mannerisms that enforce our oppression. This certainly is gender. Perhaps we could call them non-typically gender conforming instead? Can you think of any way to refer to transgender males that do not sound offensive but have a clear meaning that cannot be used against us?

One more problem with gender critical blogs has been on my mind. Their instance that “brain sex” is false. Well, this is simply untrue. There are physiological and biological differences between male and female brains. Of course it is right to reject the trans lobby claim that trannies rilly have a laydee brain cuz pretty dresses bc a man can never have a female brain, but why in the world would physical differences in the brains of men and women equal gender being innate? Anyone with an understanding of the feminist theory on gender understands that it is very much not natural to us, it is forced onto us by men to prop up the male supremacist social structure that we as women live under. Whether that be a niqab or stilettos and all manner of dehumanizing porny fashion in the western world.
