I didn’t know. . .

That Ray Blanchard had entered paedophilia into the DSM as a sexual orientation. It appears it was corrected after an outrage, but I just didn’t know he’d done that. I came across the information in an article How pedophiles are being normalized in The Post Millenial. The relevant paragraph states that

Stonewall Still Lying

After rumours emerged that the government plans to officially scrap self-id, the usual suspects increased their volume of outrage and simply doubled down on existing rhetoric. The problem here is that Stonewall is the major L,G, B charity in the UK and has considerable influence over many schools, colleges, and other organisations that are in direct contact with women, children, and other vulnerable adults. Link to full tweet.

Are posh women getting ready to throw us all under the bus?

I reckon they might be. And they’re gonna be chanting the trutrans mantra as they do so. Despite a number of women wanting to push for a complete repeal of the GRA2004 since self-id was kicked into the long grass, the posh women are hinting at only minor reforms. The problem with this is that many of us can see a bit further down the road and we can see things from a different perspective. The posh women are usually playing catch up to those who aren’t so hamstrung by red tape, manners and generally playing nice.

Tweaking

Nope. Not a typo fer twerking. Tweaking.

Recent disappointments have led to an inevitable reexamination of focus and what role I actually want to play in the trans debate. I may, or may not, talk about the specifics of those disappointments in coming weeks but right now, my consideration has to be given to how much of my focus is given to supporting Trans-identified Males.

A Lengthy Definition of Bullshit

This coming week sees the deadline for the consultation on reforming the GRA. The consultation in itself is a challenge because it’s using the heavily flawed GRA 2004 as a starting point. The battle for self-id is an ugly one, but to be honest, it’s easy to see how we arrived at this point when you learn that genital surgery is not a requirement for the current GRC (Gender Recognition Certificate). Swiped straight from the gov.uk website, it says you can get a GRC  if:

Autogynephilia – An Introduction

Not long after I began researching the trans subject I came across a term I hadn’t seen before. The word is autogynephilia and it basically describes a man who gets off sexually on imagining himself as a woman. Ray Blanchard, a sexologist, coined the term and wrote about the idea there are two distinctly different groups of trans-identified males. Those two groups are crudely separated into homosexual transsexual and heterosexual fetishistic transvestites, although there are exceptions to every rule.

An Entry Point

This post isn’t going to delve too deeply because it’s really just an opening to discuss the massive increase in people, and especially children, identifying as ‘trans’. Having had half an eye on the subject for the last four, maybe five years, I’ve involved myself directly over the last eighteen months. I immersed myself in the Twitter wars and read plenty elsewhere – arguments from both sides of the fence and even stuff by those who were sat on it. The transition of Caitlyn Jenner is obviously the most public within recent memory. He had more press coverage than necessary and before he’d even finished his transformation (he still had a penis), he adorned the cover of Vanity Fair and even won an award for woman of the year (complete with his penis). The media appeared to be largely in support of the whole process and as usual, the do-gooders, social justice warriors, and the so-called left-leaning liberals all came out in full force to say what a great thing it was. There seemed to be little criticism, or more accurately – little critical thinking about the issue as a whole. I found it disturbing to see the way everybody was supposed to celebrate his transition and see him as brave or you were labelled as shit.
