This is a website and blog where I will attempt to answer the question of whether all womyn-born-womyn are moochers and whether those assigned to the male gender caste at birth should be accountable for the actions of others.
“All transsexuals rape women's bodies by reducing the real female form to an artifact, appropriating this body for themselves….Transsexuals merely cut off the most obvious means of invading women, so that they seem non-invasive.” —Janice Raymond
This is the core message of feminism. When one is born male, one is born to a caste. There is no escaping that caste. Not even living as a woman without a single male body part is good enough for womyn-born-womyn.
The chauvinism! What does Raymond even presume that trans women are invading with their biologically female minds and the estrogen in their blood?! The utter embrace of the material world and everything skin deep, literally!
Therefore, it becomes a question of why womyn-born-womyn should hold such resentment against anything that is not born “female” in their medically ignorant, superficial view. Is there something deeper going on here? Do the words rapist and sexist even mean what I believed they meant for most of my life?
Is Janice Raymond speaking as “all women” here? Could it be the case that Janice Raymond is a deeply bigoted individual? Might it be the case that in her rush to create a caste based on a solitary letter put on a birth certificate and to fault that entire caste that she has revealed her own chauvinism and shed light on female hegemony and privilege? Is it the case that we've taken forward-thinking ideas such as gender equality and, in our one sided dogma that men are a class of exploiters and women are a class of the exploited, perverted them into a dangerous cultural toxin which will prevent women, both cis and trans, from ever truly achieving equality? Has this cultural toxin already had a deeply profound effect on cis women?
Let's see if we can find out.
