Dead Wild Roses: Pregnancy is not an Identity

Yet more evidence that identity politics is bad for women.    “Pregnant woman” is not an identity. It is a social reality. A pregnant woman’s ever-contracting rights – whether she can choose to end this pregnancy, whether she will risk imprisonment for drinking too much, whether she will lose her job, whether she will be ...

Dead Wild Roses: Catering to Identity Politics – Blowback.

“Transgender is an anti-gay, anti-lesbian, homophobic and sexist movement. Their aims are to roll back the visibility and pride of homosexuals and undo the scant gains made for women in the female equality movement. The Kennebunk High School administration is perfectly clear: Gay Pride should go back in the closet.” Fascinating stuff.  I’m wondering how ...

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: Bollocks to the UN for its Inherent Terfy-ness!!

This whole trans induced irruption away from the world of fact always leaves shaking my head (alternative facts anyone?). This isn’t about hating a particular subset of people because they are a certain way, this is about disagreeing with the bullshit they spew and the demands they make. Case in point, the idea that somehow ...

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: Why Many Radical Feminists Don’t like the Term ‘Cis/Cisgender’

Clipped from the Feminist Current article 10 words we should retire in 2017.   “5) Cis/cisgender: This word is just gross. It sounds like a tumour. But beyond its phonetic unpleasantness, “cis” is also insulting and harmful to women. Women who do not claim to have a special “gender identity” are told they are “cis.” ...

Dead Wild Roses: Gay/Lesbian Conversion Therapy for Liberals – Magdalen Berns

Well let’s take a look at the issue of sexual orientation and sexual preferences when it meets with some of the gender ideology that is popular today.  It would seem, at least according to Ms.Berns, that it just homophobia dressed up to look and sound like its progressive and inclusive. Highlights gleaned from ‘never-obey‘. Riley: ...

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 ...

Dead Wild Roses: Transactivist Rhetoric – Radical Feminists are Biological Essentialists?

Let’s examine the claim that is often seen during gender-critical debates. The idea that radical feminists want to reduce women to their mere body parts is given a thorough response.  The tl;dr is that females, under patriarchy, are oppressed because they possess female anatomy, yes folks,  sex based oppression is where the action is.  :/ ...

Dead Wild Roses: Why Defining Your Terms is Important – Sex and Gender

How weird is it that such basic concepts can cause so much furor? It is almost like a certain category of men have decided they strongly dislike a particular objective fact, and expect the rest of the world to fall in line with their new orthodoxy (because they say so).  Conveniently, when it come to ...

Dead Wild Roses: Genderist and Feminist conceptions of Sex and Gender

Notes from the gender debate that is ongoing in society.
