How transgender dogma teaches people to hate their own bodies…

Phonaesthetica and Hypotaxis have written a great entry on the self-hatred generated by transgender dogma.

“Every once in a while, I have a full-blown period attack,” she writes.

This is not the only time she pathologizes this perfectly natural female function. Throughout the article she refers to her period as an attack and a “medical condition.” Again, we can’t help but notice that there is something decidedly Victorian about this approach to menstruation – only furthering our belief that the queer/trans ideology is not progressive, but rather quite regressive. A hundred years ago, when women didn’t necessarily know what their periods meant – e.g., a sloughing off of the lining of the uterus because no pregnancy has occurred during this particular cycle – they often did consider it a medical condition, and an upsetting one. It was only after a wave or two of feminism, that women understood what was happening and went about their menstrual days without requiring a fainting couch.

“It’s not easy. Everyone in the world thinks periods are the ultimate expression of femininity. Sometimes it makes me feel very, very feminine.”

This was curious to us. Here we were, thinking pink parasols and floral perfume were the “ultimate expression of femininity.”

Femininity is an affectation. Female is a biological reality. Our periods are not an “expression” any more than cancer, a bulging lumbar disc, or seasonal flu is an “expression.” And if menstruation is supposed to make us “feel very, very feminine” it has failed on all counts. Phona wears high heels every once in a while, which can make her feel “very, very feminine” in a performative sort of way, but she never feels “very, very feminine” due to bleeding from her vagina. She needs a cute tiered skirt from Prana for that.

Because, see, our bodies are not a feeling. Our bodies’ natural functions are not “expressions.”

      What, the transgender advocacy think tank took the time to comment on my post? Wow. :)

        I would actually like to thank you. It’s hard to find someone who actually realizes the harm and misogyny caused by the trans-movement.

          You’re welcome. You should read more about radical feminism, it’s resistance central against translies right now. :)

  2. Oh, Francois, it’s amusing when a man tries to imagine what periods are like. Believe me, if you’d ever experienced one, you might know why they do indeed feel like an attack.

      Not sure what you’re going on about, misogynist asshole. I didn’t write the entry, women did. But I’m glad to know you once again explicitly side with the misogynists.
