After transition, it was all about getting on with life – try and make something of myself in this crazy world. Much of this was about trying to put my head down and keep myself to myself – the life of a transsexual is often built on loss and isolation.
I’ve always been open about who/what I am – I transitioned in work so many already knew, and word spreads… It’s no use getting upset by this – it happens, what’s the point in sulking and throwing tantrums? What does it achieve? Other than make you look like a snowflake, and who wants that? No, it achieves nothing. Instead, I was open about it; people knew they could, and they did, talk to me about it, and If they inadvertently used clumsy language, so what! I have almost infinite patience for those genuinely seeking understanding.
But on the whole I guess I did what many others like me do: try to quietly slip back into society, and get on with it. As a “group”, transsexuals, from my experience are as disparate as any other, and we certainly don’t maintain some sort of diaspora…..
Right now, the problem transsexuals have is one of credibility. The TRAs have been entirely successful in subsuming transsexuals into “transgender” in the wider public conscience, and we can’t not get tarnished by their shit as a result – consider the many women new to all this who, thanks to the “transgender umbrella”, may not recognise we’re a distinctly different people than the transvestites and crossdressers. They’re scared, and understandably so. If we [TSs] are going to recover any reputation, we need to be clearly distinguishable and separate from them…
Our future looks bleak: services are under incredible strain, and with dangerous affirmation only policies being proposed, particularly on children (is paediatrics up to speed with the impact all this may have on a developing child’s minds and bodies?), we can only expect the strain to increase; unless significant funding is thrown at it… But what happens when all those who should never been put on the medical pathway experience regret? What happens to our vital services when the extent of this current crisis becomes fully realised? They’ll disappear…and the path we have available to us to recover anything is very narrow – regardless of the outcome of the GRA Consultation, damage has been done.
It’s important to point out that current gender/trans ideology is being pushed by fetishistic men, who have no interest in transition outwith a change of clothes and a bit of lippy. If, hopefully, Self ID gets crushed, just watch the likes of Alex Drummond of Stonewall, take off his skirt, wipe off his lipstick, pack up his shit and disappear back into society as the man he is – he already has his beautifully groomed beard ready to go….meanwhile, people like me need to deal with the tattered reputation and poor public perception these men leave us with in their wake. There is going to be a generation of adults furious they’ve had their fertility stolen, their future happiness in jeopardy, all to satisfy and justify the twisted fantasies of these men.
In a world where we know desistance is high, and “gender incongruence” in children rights itself in the overwhelming majority of circumstances, why is the affirmation only policy being pushed? Why is watchful waiting, which is the recommendation from GIDS, being pushed to the side so easily? It’s easy, these kids are being politicised by transvestites and crossdressers who, by the way, have no interest in Actual transition – they’re pushing drugs and surgeries they themselves have no interest in getting – this is seriously alarming, and serious questions need to be asked.
This is all part of the multi-faceted War on Women, and the transgender umbrella has been their most effective weapon. That fucking umbrella’s purpose was to appropriate transsexuals and intersex people: they’ve stolen our lives and stories, and shoehorned them into a narrative that sounds progressive, but is actually an insidious agenda to hurt and erase women….and what a job they’ve done: the public has been thoroughly duped into accepting this.
So where does all this leave me, and others like me? Not in a great place as it happens….I’ll be honest: I wasn’t paying attention. After surgery, and actually for some time before, I had pretty much disappeared back into society; having had the therapy and subsequent diagnoses, it became a waiting game – there was no need to attend the clinic, and I rarely returned. Furthermore, the activities of the trans communities just weren’t on my radar…..in fact, I rarely interacted with other trans people……until now..
A year last October is when I really became aware of all this…and I was, am, horrified. Since then I’ve spoken out against this trans-cult, as have other transsexuals, but let’s face it, our numbers are tiny by comparison. I see some of what goes on in some transsexual groups, and the tone is sombre; there is a tremendous amount of fear.
The relatively ordinary life I was leading, where my transition was a very minor part who I was, has been destroyed, and now that I did transition sits front and centre, whether I want it to or not. No doubt this is true for many of us. How many of us have gone about our business, blended back into society, and built their lives over decades, for it all to be brought to a head now, with their future in doubt? How many has this doubt silenced?
But right now, there’s a bigger problem: women are under attack, and like it or not, we’re a weapon for the patriarchy….we need to be a weapon against the patriarchy…..and therein lies our path to recovering our credibility and place in society, and the very first thing we need to do, is get transsexuals, and intersex people, OUT from underneath that fucking “transgender umbrella”; they can no longer be allowed to appropriate us to justify their blatant misogyny.
Incidentally, if someone announces they’re “transgender”, push them a little further…. See, no one is just “transgender”; being an umbrella term, they would actually occupy a separate ‘group’ under that term….like, no one is just intersex – a term used to cover varying conditions that actually confirm the sex binary… So yeah, ask them what group they represent under that umbrella…..you’ll notice, from the picture below, the big “T” tag is for transsexual – but considering this requires diagnosis, and seems to be a term they’re determined to render obsolete, will they claim it? I suspect not since their claim likely couldn’t stand up to scrutiny; same goes for intersex.….so what would they be left with? Crossdresser? Transvestite? Some other gender nonsense? They can’t claim those since these can’t be reconciled with their narrative…..it’s the credibility and legitimacy of Transsexual and Intersex they rely on and roll into this “transgender identity”….it’s a nonsense, and a little probing exposes it…..I bet they’d avoid the question and try back out….don’t let them get away with just “transgender”…..
