Songs that are turning 10 years old In 2014 (Based on release dates)
when shots are fired but you have a good comeback
did he just airbend?
His teammate suddenly collapses in pure awe
One degree away from Kevin Bacon.
sO MY NEW WASHING MACHINE BEEPS CUTE SONGS AT ME WHEN THE CLOTHES ARE DONE, EEEEEP.
The following facts are supported by every major health organization in the US, as well as the world health organization, based on multidisciplinary scientific efforts over the last 60 years.
They are not points of debate. They are facts. If one starts from a position other than these points, you are starting from a position and place that has no factual basis.
Trans women are women. Trans men are men. The rest proceeds from there.
Biology does not determine what a person’s social sex is.
Gender is a complex system of inter-related parts that vary according to culture and social influence and is not a fixed system.
Gender Dysphoria is not a mental illness.
It is a core violation of human rights to deny trans people necessary medical care, regardless of their age. Agitating against that medical treatment is engaging in a willfully, intentional act of violence and trying to deny human rights to other people.
The degree of harassment and violence perpetrated against trans people is physically damaging to trans people, even when it seems as innocuous as misgendering. This is violence and harm, which is fundamentally an abridgment of human rights.
According to the SPLC, the actions and speech of Cathy Brennan constitute hate speech. Therefore, repeating the same lies she does makes that person also spreading hate speech. According to the World Health Organization, that classifies them as acts of violence.
Again, these are facts. Disagreeing with facts is a past time many people engage in, however it is still and always really fucking stupid.
Ignorance is not an excuse. It is not my responsibility to educate you on why these are facts, and should I choose to do so, even insultingly, then I am engaging in an act of kindness and service.
Critical Trans Theory is founded on fact. Critical Trans theory is not feminism. It is critical theory that examines the Structure of Cisness and Ciscentrism, and posits the central idea of critical theory, which underlies all radical efforts: that the lens through which such social constructs are created is not an informed one, and so the central tenets need to be re-examined.
Building on these facts and critical theory, it can be established that lesbian separatist radical feminists are engaging in an act of social genocide and advocating against the human rights of trans people from a basis that is founded in anxiety, aversion, and animus, with intense dislike being the central tenet.
Intense dislike of a class of persons is literal hate against human beings for what they are.
This has been a PSA for those people who say things like trans women are males. Note that as a matter of fact, saying such is an act of violence done against another person.
That said, if one finds the foundational arguments of human rights, and the notion that individual liberty is a dangerous and destructive concept (especially by action), then your arguments need to start there, but still adhere to facts.
It is not a fact that males have a penis. It is not a fact that women give birth. It is a fact that most males have such, and it is a fact that most women do so. The semantic difference between most men and men is tremendous, and an act of intellectual dishonesty to forget such.
Dishonesty is the fundamental tool of those who scapegoat trans women for the actions of cis het men. The argument, itself, is visibly dishonesty creating a false equivalency and doing so based on a fundamentally violent action of presuming trans women to be men.
Trans people are not cis people. You cannot apply cis standards to them without first examining those standards for inherent bias and prejudice.
When you complain about how crazy this author is, remember that this author is an award winning, nationally recognized expert on the topic.
Meaning that the problem isn’t her.
