My partner who is quite Butch also with a flattop went to work one day at the WOMENS homeless shelter in a progressive city, and a visiting psychologist or professional asked her if she was trans. She said no. Then she asked her WHEN would she be transitioning? She said I am a BUTCH WOMAN. A masculine WOMAN.
She was VERY UPSET BY THIS, when this woman refused to "get it", and she came home and cried in my arms. Its hard enough BEING BUTCH in this world and not fitting into sex stereotypes and getting discriminated agiunst and all, but this shit on top of all that? The trans movement hasn't made a single Butch freer!! -M.A.
"I keep thinking of this since I read it. Your words are so very true. This regressive, patriarchal genderist movement has done nothing to make even one single Butch more free and in fact has done everything to make the world even more hostile to any woman who dares live as herself in a world of men who hate her for existing.
This is what really gets me about how it works , it is precisely and exactly those women who are most potentially dangerous to patriarchy and most threatening to men who are being drawn into this blatant medical abuse of healthy female bodies.
This is no coincidence. This is a coordinated part of the never-ending effort of men to annihilate us."-
