Dead Wild Roses: Words Have Meanings and Facts Don’t Respect your Feelings.

Dead Wild Roses: Transactivism at it Finest – My Rules Only Apply to Others, Not Me!

Consider this conversation and then juxtaposition it with all the chatter one hears about ‘gender identity’ and ‘gender expression’.  Add to your lens the notion of male privilege and how it often plays out when it comes to respecting the boundaries of females. (not) Funny how that works. http://auntiewanda.tumblr.com/post/160517895825/cecaeliawitch-this-was-a-pretty-grand-moment-and   Filed under: Gender Issues, Radical ...

Dead Wild Roses: A Short Essay On the Term “Cis-Privilege” – From the Female Perspective.

“Every single time I hear a transactivist or MTT person call us ‘cis’ or ‘cis privileged’ as a woman I am going to assume that they think the following experiences of being a woman privilege us: The number one greatest industry in the world is the buying, selling and trafficking of women and girls for ...

Dead Wild Roses: “Cis Privilege” Hahahahahahah – No.

Woo! Let’s check out all the privilege “cis” women have. Oh. Women do not willingly identify with any of the above conditions. This is precisely why the term “cis” resides in the realm of fatuous, patriarchally-approved bullshit. If women (adult human females) actually had the choice to identify their way out of their oppression we ...

Dead Wild Roses: Why Sex Segregated Bathrooms are Important

    So many conversations start like this: “If you think trans people are all rapists or degenerates, celebrate when trans people lose rights and get attacked, and deny the sexuality of people who accept trans people, you’re an oppressor and a bigot and nobody should take you seriously.” radicurious answered: I disagree with transgender ideology, ...

Dead Wild Roses: When Identity Politics Trumps Reality; Women Lose – Females Kicked out of B.C. Okanagan Women’s Shelter.

   The politics of gender identity hurt women. And now sadly, I have to qualify what I mean when I write the word ‘woman’ because males, with subjective, indescribable feelings have decided that they are also women.  So, ‘women’ defined here and in reality refers to adult human females. Obvious female erasure aside, let’s move ...

Dead Wild Roses: Womyn’s March Highlights Toxicity of Identity Politics

The idea that feminism is the movement to liberate women from patriarchy (a notion lost to much of the befuddled third-wave) is finally beginning to (re)gain some traction as more women see what the unctuous morass of neo-liberal identity politics inflicts upon their mass movement. “It saddens me to see the inclusive liberal feminism I ...

Dead Wild Roses: The DWR Radical Feminist Quote of the Day – On “Equality”

“much of the animosity towards radical feminism is explained by examining the fact that feminism is popularly misunderstood to simply be about “equal rights.” when radical feminists are accused of not including trans women in “our feminism,” the underlying implication is that we maliciously exclude them because we think they don’t deserve equal rights. however, ...

Dead Wild Roses: The DWR Feminist Quote of the Day – Rachel Ivy – On Gender and Identity

“The idea that gender is natural is conservative, and the idea that gender is voluntarily chosen is insulting. Tell a victim of corrective rape that gender is voluntary. Tell any survivor of rape, the overwhelming majority of which are female, that being a woman is a fun set of clothing and behavior choices that she ...

Dead Wild Roses: A Conversation on ‘Gatekeeping’ and Gender

http://auntiewanda.tumblr.com/post/153664078226/you-should-learn-more-about-radical-feminism Interesting conclusion – if gender is completely subjective, personal quality, how can it be meaningful in a descriptive sense? It comes back down to the utility of meanings that are based in the material reality of the situation. Women = adult human female is an objective fact, and I haven’t seen an alternate definition ...

Dead Wild Roses: The Clash of World Views: Trans-ideology vs. Gender Critical Radical Feminism

The argument depicted below seems to sum up the problematic nature of the truth claims that trans-activists make. To analyze these claims precisely and coherently and refute them seems to get one labelled as a ‘transphobe’ (for disagreeing with worldview of someone else). Sorry, but that just doesn’t wash. If we are to maintain any ...
