Yes, it does: Does it piss me off? Why should I just blindly give my energy to detransitioners? THEY GOTTA PROVE THEY WANT TO BE PART OF THE DYKE AND FEMALE COMMUNITY AGAIN!! NOT ONE FOOT IN OUR WORLD AND ONE FOOT IN THE TRANS WORLD!!'
A response to L.T.:
I AM communicating that I would much rather put my energy into stopping the trans nonsense in the first place by OWNING our Butch/Tomboy/nonfeminine Selves as Butch Dykes who LEARN to be Female proud, than every young one who thinks its trendy and cool to transition,genderqueer, identify as transmasculine, ect ect ect, who.put us Butch Dykes down who object to seeing our entire communities of Butch Lesbians vacated, and overrun by those sporting their new facial hair, their born again announcement of scheduling breast surgeries, their new found machismo, ect ect ect. You dont KNOW HOW THIS CUTS TO OUR BUTCHDYKE SOULS!!!
Does it piss me off???YES. Doesthe name change to male, Then insistence on male pronouns piss me off? YES. ESPECIALLY WHILE DEMANDING ACCESS TO FEMALE AND LESBIAN SPACES DESTROYING THEM IN THE PROCESS.
Does seeing handsome Butch women destroy their bodies including some of my former partners, acquaintances and friends piss me off?? YES.
DOES begging them, pleading with them NOT to transition and they do anyway cuz its trendoid and IT'S NOT as a Butch Dyke piss me off?? YES.
Does it make me nervous looking around as there are fewer and fewer REAL TRUE BLUE BUTCHES while everyone else drank the koolaid and our asses as nonconforming to het roles Females more and more alone with no Butch progeny to follow us or pass on our Butch DykeAmazon ways to piss me off? YES!!!
CUZ IT GIVES THE MESSAGE THAT THE ONLY WOMEN OR FEMALES THAT EXIST ARE FEMME OR SLIGHTLY ANDROGYNOUS.
Not strong Amazonian womyn who take no shit from men, who DEMAND we be treated as equals, love womyn openly with all the gusto only men are allowed, and dress as we please in clothes we feel handsome and strong in that dont limit us or make us vulnerable sex objects.
DOES IT PISS ME OFF THERE ARE SQUADRONS OF FEMALES SO SELF HATING THEY WANT TO CUT OFF OR BURY THEIR FEMALENESS? YES.
Do I want to BE around self hating females who so identify with men rather than throw their lot in with the remainder of their Butch brethren, Lesbians and womyn as a whole? NO.
So you want to know where I am coming from L.T.? Surviving as a Butch DykeAmazon while so many are identifying as male or my brethren are transitioning to male, one, after another after another.
So I am supposed to feel sorry for them when they wake up and find out they bought a bill of goods, injected the Patriarchy into their own bodies with testosterone and hated their breasts so.much they bound them or cut them off, but PUT ME DOWN AFTER I TOLD THEM NOT TO, COME INTO OUR DYKE OR FEMALE SPACES, OR TO DO IT IN THE FIRST PLACE???
You bet I'm pissed, as Ive watched more and more Butch Dykes disappear from our communities in droves since the 1990s, destroy Michfest and all our Female spaces by AT ONCE INSISTING THEY ARE MALE, AND YET DEMANDING ACCESS TO US.
I have limited energy. MY energy will go into STOPPING this bullshit IN THE FIRST PLACE AND TALKING TO THOSE WHO HAVE NOT YET DRUNK THE KOOLAIDE.
AND TO THOSE WHO HAVE WHO GENUINELY have sorted things through thoroughly and coming back to their Female and Lesbian proud Selves, honoring US BUTCHES WHO NEVER DRUNK THE KOOLAIDE AS THE AMAZONS WE ARE AND STUCK IT OUT AS FEMALES WHO WILL NEVER CONFORM TO PATRIARCHAL MORES AND TAKE UP.OUR SPACE FULLY!!!-FeistyAmazon
