This is what women's studies has come to: 'Gender studies', instead of Lesbian groups or the Dyke March, it's for the 'gender fluid'. Gender fluidity and gender arguements are now the norm in the LGBTLMNOPXYZ community. A bunch of fucking claptrap. Where IS our Lesbian only or even WOMEN ONLY space? Where are our women's bookstores, printing presses, women's/lesbian newspapers, mags, hangouts, lesbian centers, lesbian groups ect. ect. ect. lesbian businesses? Gone gone and more gone, cuz of JUST THIS CLAPTRAP. Does that mean that women are no longer the spoils of war, that women rape men as much as men rape women? that women batter and fuck and hold men down and don't let them advance in their careers or even allow them to get a nontraditional career, the way that men do to women? What about the genitally mutilated 80 million women across the world that are almost nothing more than cows for men, with very few rights and veils covering their faces, threatened with horrible threats should they step out of their role or assert independence, much less become Lesbian and walk away from men, men's religions, men's political systems, men's social systems, men's medical systems, and on and on and on. Do women have 100% of the rights that men do that we can 'overcome gender'? This is one of those grandiose tasks that is so unattainable as to be virtually meaningless. I guess with Thomas Beattie we now have 'pregnant men'! So do men get a womb implanted in them too so they can take part in reproduction or have to worry every time they have heterosex they'll get pregnant too? Do they have to worry about a single man/woman or a group of women standing on a street corner chasing them down and raping them if they're dressed too scantily? How much do they have to worry about sexual harassment or jobs that don't pay much compared to women?
What a bunch of crap! Like Nat said! Just like so many of the queer conferences where you won't see hardly ONE workshop exclusively for Dykes! So man and trans heavy these days!
I'm a DYKE dammit...I'm ALL WOMON...and I ONLY DATE/have sexual relationships with BIO FEMALE WOMEN/DYKES!
If gender is eliminated, then my sexual orientation is eliminated, but honey, whatever you call it, I don't want any penis between us friends! No flat chests and no penises, only bio female yonis, and breasts...that are naturally grown. Thank you very much. I'm not pansexual, nor do I want to be...sex DOES matter to me. The term gender these days is meaningless to me....Proud to be Butch but All Dyke, and ALL Female and that's all I want...is another who is the same, whether Butch or Femme, but all bio-Female and Dyke all the same........

Once we win the war against sexism, that is the diminishment of ALL women by men's institutions which I listed in my last post, and ALL women are free from violence, rape, discrimination, lesser pay for work, deprivation of food so the male human lion can be fed first, control by male centered religions and dieties, THEN maybe we can talk about'dismantling gender'.
Once Lesbophobia is overcome, that Lesbians are treated with equal dignity that straight women and men take for granted, and even gay men with their much greater privilege than dykes because they're male and have male only networks, and that trans and bis aren't crashing our spaces but actively creating their own AND RESPECTING OURS, and that ANY WOMAN who desires across the world can become a Lesbian, and center her most intimate energies, love and passion towards other womyn only without having to fear rape, violence, censure, censorship, shame or even the death penalty in some countries or discrimination on the job and out in the world...then MAYBE we can discuss 'getting rid of gender/sexual orientation' But better to get rid of sex/gender/sexual orientation discrimination. And allow us Lesbians to have our unique womon and Dyke centered and womon loving ways about us, and our love for women, cuz THAT's the sex we crave. NOT the other, nor do we want to mix and match!
For Butches, if you get rid of violence against us as Butch Lesbians, Butch Women who are actively being invisibilized by the trans movement, or so much pressure is being put upon us to give up our Lesbian spaces/herstory/identity to take on the MALE identity, whether genderqueer/FTM ect. destroying our Female bodies in the process, as well as our unique Female Minds and Spirits, that transition or identifying as male is the process to our liberation rather than knocking down the doors of sexism, lesbophobia and Butchphobia(like Dirt mentions, attitudes towards her in the bathroom, but not just there, out in the world and on the job and with family as well), then MAYBE we can talk about overcoming 'gender'. But really,
we ARE gendered sex BEINGS. Women have a lovely luscious Yoni/Cunt/Labia/Gateway to the Goddess, and I love my hand inside one, and a woman's hand/fingers inside mine. It is a multiorgasmic ecstasy that cannot be denied. Can the other sex do that? No, they can only orgasm once.....Lesbian sex is unique, as Lesbians are unique, and I DON'T WANT TO GIVE UP MY UNIQUENESS for some fakely nightmare fiction of a genderless society where we all wear grey suits and everybody looks and acts just like everybody else!
Sorry if you're a penis wearer, were a penis wearer, or want to be a penis wearer, I HAVE NO INTEREST IN YOU! I want to give up the lockstep of gender roles and boxes that any little girl is forced into, but not the girlhood, womonhood itself...it is the Female I crave, sexually, emotionally, politically, psychologically, psychically and SPIRITUALLY. It is absolutely revolutionary. 'Getting rid' of gender is NOT. It's total bullshit.
The Super Bowl was today. How many MTF's and FTMS and women were on the Super Bowl Football teams? NONE. My point exactly. Which sex keeps war going to feel alive? The MALE one. Who benefits from the spoils of war and who are the victims, the males are the benefitters who rape and plunder, the women and children are the victims.....end of story. work towards getting rid of sexism, lesbophobia, Butchphobia and WAR. And women and Dykes will then be so completely liberated the energy released on this planet will be unimaginable...and positive.
