Dead Wild Roses: Examining the Contradictions in Trans Activist Ideology

    Ryan T. Anderson discussing what he sees as some of the contradictions in the methodology of Transactivists.  Read the full piece here.  (Note – Not particularly fond of the source – The Daily Signal (via the Heritage Foundation) in the US – but the arguments presented are worth examining.)   “On the one hand, ...

Dead Wild Roses: The DWR Feminist Quote/Rant of the Day – If Transwomen were actually Women…

I’m so very lucky to have such a sharp feminist commentariate here at DWR (thanks for leaving this comment, Meg).  Along with the informative nuanced discussion, gems like this crop up and are too good not be shared.  Can I get a ‘society doesn’t give two shits about your special gender feels’ for $200, Alex? ...

Dead Wild Roses: Women Chased Off Twitter for Speaking Their Minds – Vonny Leclerc

Yep.  Another casuality that can be directly attributed to transactivism (also Patriarchy 2.0).  This is what happens when women won’t go along with male delusion and commit the blasphemous crime of speaking in a particular way: with facts that are congruent with observable, material, reality.   I hope Vonny and Glosswitch return to twitter, we are ...

Dead Wild Roses: The DWR Feminist Quote of the Day – The State of Transactvism – ‘Total Disregard’ on the Feminist Current

Dead Wild Roses: Truth is Not Hate – How Accusations of Transphobia Silence Female Voices

If there is anything that will enrage men more is women speaking out against their view of the world. The first class citizens get mighty mad when the second class start challenging their assertions and interpretations of the world. This post delves into the war of words that is currently raging between transactivists and radical ...

Dead Wild Roses: The Trans Madness in Canada and the Feminist Opposition – Meghan Murphy

Oh, just shaking my head at this one.  Watch the trans identified male dig a nice hole for himself as he debates with Meghan Murphy and other gender critical feminists. I have laws enshrined in society now that protects my male delusions of gender, fear me female!  Of course, cue the defence against the world ...

Dead Wild Roses: Pithy Quotes on Gender

The great part is that you (genderists) really can’t. It’s like well women are like this and this in society (insert toxic gender role here) and men are like this in society (insert toxic gender role)… You see, if your touchstones for your ‘gender identity’ are the fucking patriarchal approved norms of society then what ...

Dead Wild Roses: Funny How that Works – Meghan Murphy on Female Spaces

Men really need to stop trying to make feminism about them.

Dead Wild Roses: What is a Woman?

Pretty much every conversation I’ve had with people who, when it comes to basic biological facts, decide it necessary to jump through tortured hoops to evade this simple question.   Is there a more clear example of men trying to impose their version of reality on the world?  We cannot change sex (facts, don’t care about ...

Dead Wild Roses: Transactivism at its Finest – The Blood Root Restaurant Debacle

The Bloodroot is a small vegan restaurant.  Their crime? Having the absolute gall and audacity to state – in a feminist space no less – that they believe in supporting women born women.  It  is enough of a transgression to bring the trans-hoarde along with the usual threats, cyberbullying, and harassment (typical aggressive male behaviour) ...

Dead Wild Roses: The Notion of “Gender Identity” is Antithetical to Feminist Analysis – Megan Murphy

   Meghan Murphy is one of Canada’s leading Feminists.  This quote is from her article – “Thanks to trans activism, 2017 saw a return to old-school, sexist dismissals of women and women’s rights.”  Definitely worth your time to go and peruse the entire article.  What I would like to focus on is how well this ...

Dead Wild Roses: The Upcoming Vancouver (wo)Men’s March – The Failure of Inclusive Third Wave Feminism

How can one tell when men have well and truly infiltrated 3rd wave feminism?  When you invite a dude to speak at your Woman’s March who is advocate for the sex industry while concomitantly blocking feminists who are fighting for female liberation.  I can fucking smell the inclusivity a mile away, can’t you?  Funny how ...

Dead Wild Roses: Imagine if Male Genitals Were Treated like Female Genitals

Looking through the eyes of another and trying to understand their point of view is an important skill to foster in one’s intellectual development. Understanding that your experiences are not necessarily the experiences of others and then learning from them can really enhance your critical thinking skills and ability to argue effectively. This ‘what if’ ...

Dead Wild Roses: Now Why Would “progressive gender legislation” enshrine Patriarchal Values?

I keep waiting to hear all the amazing goodness that is coming from this ‘gender revolution’ yet you look at it and it the same misogyny as the old misogyny, and would you look at that, even the gender-crew realizes that being male is the only way to personhood in our society and its not ...

Dead Wild Roses: It’s Females who Have Gender Dysphoria!

This is a next level comment on a thread from a post on The Feminist Current titled “If trans activists truly cared about feminism, they would respect women’s spaces”.  Simple no?  It’s hard to argue with the tagline, although in the comment section the TRA (trans rights activists) are certainly giving it a go, and ...

Dead Wild Roses: The Importance of Women’s Libraries – Teaching Feminism and Raising Consciousness

The Vancouver Women’s Library has withstood the siege of entitled males. The need for female only spaces in our society cannot be understated. Women need a place to share their stories and communicate with each other away from male expectations and the male gaze. When I speak with younger women, I despair because they often ...

Dead Wild Roses: Transactivists Merrily Erasing Female History – Remembering Canada’s Montreal Massacre

A little dark and shameful bit of Canada’s history – (from wikipedia)      “The École Polytechnique massacre, also known as the Montreal massacre, was a mass shooting at the École Polytechnique in Montreal, Quebec, Canada that occurred on December 6, 1989. Twenty-five-year-old Marc Lépine, armed with a rifle and a hunting knife, shot 28 people, ...

Dead Wild Roses: When Boys are Yelling “suck my dick bitch” at me…

The experience of being female in society, and thus second class always seems like such a mysterious and vague concept to the menfolk. Time to witness the otherside of the coin, dudes and perhaps start to understand that the experience you’re having is *not* the same for the half the world’s population. http://neuralwave.tumblr.com/post/168556428955/fifthwave-sideblog-hyggehaven-i-think-the Filed under: ...

Dead Wild Roses: Prostitution Stories from the Frontline

Naming and deconstructing a problem on the societal level is not “shaming”.  It isn’t about your personal ’empowerment’ or any of the other neo-liberal drek that passes for so much of mainstream feminism these days.  So the example here is prostitution and no – I won’t call it ‘sex work’ or any other patriarchally approved ...

Dead Wild Roses: The Threat Receipts of Trans Activists

These are the threats that entitled misogynists in dresses regularly hurl at women. These are the actions of men when you disagree with them. Feeling progressive and supportive of the trans-cult agenda yet? I know I’m not. Male violence and the threat of male violence is the first tool use in patriarchy to oppress females, ...

Dead Wild Roses: The Unpersonhood of Women to be Confirmed in Brazil – Full Abortion Ban Incoming

   I hate the rank smell of religious zealotry, so self-righteous, so sure, so confident that the grand ooga-booga has ordained that the status of women in Brazil needs to be taken down a score of notches. As reported by the CBC: “A congressional committee led by evangelical Christians has voted to ban abortion in ...

Dead Wild Roses: Transactivism Politically Powerless? – A Feminist Perspective

Men will do pretty much anything to blame others for their problems. Including telling a false narrative and trying to subvert the feminist movement for their own ends. Sorry for the segmented presentation, but it is the best twitter has to offer. https://radfemdreamer.tumblr.com/post/167136358093/thegynocrat-httpstwittercomgappytalesstatus Filed under: Gender Issues, Radical Feminism Tagged: Gender, Power Dynamics, Radical Feminism, ...
