Dead Wild Roses: Trans Activism the New (old) Male Supremacy

Just so we don’t have to play the “no true scotsman” game on the individual level, lets look at the response of Action for Trans Health London has to say regarding the incident where four male transactivists beat up a 60 year old woman.   Notice the nice transition from condemning violence against women, to “WHEN ...

Get the story reported here. https://aunt-mimi.tumblr.com/post/165397881498/shamelesslyunladylike-daisydeadhead   I’m quite done with the notion that feminism and transactivism can ever be reconciled.  They are mutually exclusive concepts. Feminism is about the liberation of females from patriarchy, and as evinced as of the September 13th – transactivism is about maintaining a respectable queer patina over the ugly ...

Dead Wild Roses: The DWR Feminist Quote of the Day – Lierre Keith on Liberalism

  “At this moment, the liberal basis of most progressive movements is impeding our ability, individually and collectively, to take action.

Dead Wild Roses: Relativism and Biological Facts – A snippet and Analysis

Another interesting snippet from the conversation over at VW’s:   Arbourist:  “Humans, like most mammals are sexually dimorphic.” VW:  This is a discriptive label we use in an attempt to best explain what represents the majority or general experience.

Dead Wild Roses: The Bullshite Known as Gender Identity Politics – Raquel Rosario Sanchez

I’m sometimes asked why I give such serious side-eye to the term identity politics.  This isn’t some sort of dogwhistle like the freezepeach moniker that gets affixed to people who want to say racist or sexist things and then hide behind free speech.  Gender IDPOL is a systemic denial of the reality women face and ...

Dead Wild Roses: GlossWitch Goes to Town On Liberal Male ‘Feminists’

“There has been little acknowledgement of the way in which trans politics demands far more of women than it does of men, perhaps because this would require an acknowledgement of the fact that male/female remains as much, if not more, of a dominant axis of oppression as trans/cis. Why aren’t we claiming that “men” needs ...

Dead Wild Roses: Biological Determinism – What Feminism Argues

Hmm.  Time to give some side eye to queer theory as it seems to go against much of what feminism is about.  Let’s examine a part of an essay by Susan Cox writing on the Feminist Current.      “Feminists defied patriarchal ideology by declaring that we do not have “wandering uteruses” that make us prone ...
