Transfobi

Lisa er opprørt over et blogginnlegg og har derfor skrevet en glimrende oversikt over hva transfobi er:

How about Janice Raymond?

«transsexuality must be morally mandated out of existence.»

How about Germaine Greer?

«The transsexual is identified as such solely on his/her own script, which can be as learned as any sex-typed behaviour and as editorialized as autobiographies usually are. The lack of insight that MTF transsexuals usually show about the extent of their acceptance as females should be an indication that their behaviour is less rational than it seems. There is a witness to the transsexual’s script, a witness who is never consulted. She is the person who built the transsexual’s body of her own flesh and brought it up as her son or daughter, the transsexual’s worst enemy, his/her mother. Whatever else it is gender reassignment is an exorcism of the mother. When a man decides to spend his life impersonating his mother (like Norman Bates in Psycho) it is as if he murders her and gets away with it, proving at a stroke that there was nothing to her. His intentions are no more honourable than any female impersonator’s; his achievement is to gag all those who would call his bluff. When he forces his way into the few private spaces women may enjoy and shouts down their objections, and bombards the women who will not accept him with threats and hate mail, he does as rapists have always done.”

Er det rart jeg ikke ønsker å kalle meg feminist?

    Ikke la sånne rasshøl få definere feminismen, da. Det fortjener de ikke. Og ikke vi andre heller, for den saks skyld.
