In a time where inclusion has become one of feminism’s key priorities, a founding idea has fallen particularly out of favour: separatism. The mere accusation of not being “intersectional” (something that actually is imperative but is mostly misapplied by the same liberals calling for “inclusiveness”) is enough to shutter events, spaces, and organizations that center […]

In effort to continue documenting transition related deaths of trans females, here is yet another former self hating dyke gone gay/popular blogger/transgender activist who’s died of a testosterone related early death.
Jennifer Kathleen Kailey, better known to her transgender readers as Matt, died “suddenly” May last year of “heart failure” at only 59 years of age. Jennifertransitioned, like many post queer theory dykes in the 90’s (1997) at a much older age than lesbians today. Jennifer began her transition at age 42. It is unknown specifically (at least to the public) when she began injecting testosterone. From her own writings, particularly her writing on Menopause, Jennifer-for some years at least was using a low dose of testosterone since she was experiencing Peri-menopausal hot flashes at 50, as her female body fought to regulate itself and was apparently winning still.
I am about a week and a half into my personal “peak trans”. Every moment, I think I cannot be more outraged, and then, like a horror show building towards a crescendo, it happens again.
I’m a second wave lesbian feminist, out of the picture for almost two decades. Initially it was that I felt alienated from an increasingly butch/femmed, BDSMed-up community that had no place for me.
Then, I became the Founding Mother of a new rights movement, which took up another decade or so of my energy. I will not identify what movement this is just yet. I want to make the tranti-speech dudes work a bit before they find out who they can hate on next. (I am more than happy to confirm my identity in private, however).
I found out just moments ago that the movement in question is also being ravaged by this violent effort…

This six-year-old girl has some issues.
Before coming out as her true authentic pediatric female self, Stefonknee (“Steph on knee”, geddit?) was a 53 year old man named Paul who was living his inauthentic life as the married father of seven children. According to him, he looked after the kids while his wife worked as the principal of an elementary school. He was also self-employed as an auto mechanic who worked on cars in a garage on the family property “mainly overnight” after his wife got home.
In 2009 he was charged with 14 criminal offenses of assault, uttering threats, criminal harassment, and criminal mischief. His wife and their two oldest children- then in their late teens- testified against him. He was found guilty of assault and uttering threats. The court also issued a two-year restraining order against him that applied to his wife and all seven of his children…

We can visualize this kind of interaction or transformation by thinking about the interplay between biological and cultural factors that affects the ways boys and girls grow up in our society. If a society puts half its children into short skirts and warns them not to move in ways that reveal their panties, while putting the other half into jeans and overalls and encouraging them to climb trees, play ball, and participate in other vigorous outdoor games; if later, during adolescence, the children who have been wearing trousers are urged to “eat like growing boys,” while the children in skirts are warned to watch their weight and not get fat; if the half in jeans runs around in sneakers or boots, while the half in skirts totters about on spike heels, then these two groups of people will be biologically as well as socially different. Their muscles will be different…

Trans Woman Lives Her Life as a Six Year Old Girl
“After 23 years of marriage and 7 kids, Stefonknee Wolscht realized she was a transgender woman. But the rejection from her family and friends left her feeling alone and suicidal. That was until the day she realized she could find love and acceptance as a six year old girl. This is part 4 of our 4 part series exploring the lives of transgender Canadians from the website thetransgenderproject.com”
This video was funded by the Canadian government:
The site, trans.ichannel.ca will host a series of webisodes that tell us the compelling personal stories of 13 transgender individuals. The first three have been posted today, and a new one will be added each week during the summer.
The Transgender Project will also feature a full-length documentary about discrimination against transgender people in Canada. According to research compiled by the Trans PULSE Project, transgender Canadians encounter many different forms of discrimination: approximately 40% have been turned down for a job, and more than a quarter have been physically assaulted.
The Transgender Project’s Senior Producer Kevin O’Keefe says: “It’s a privilege to be able to share these powerful stories of strength, courage and determination that will resonate with anyone trying to lead an authentic life. While these stories don’t shy away from the challenges many Trans Canadians face, we also celebrate the amazing resilience they have to simply be themselves.”
This guy is an old man who does non-consensual age play with actual children and abandoned his own family to pursue his fetish, why would anyone want to use him as an advocate for trans rights?

This article from Huffington Post is about a lesbian who discovers she is “nonbinary” and she celebrates by getting a haircut and a tattoo, after which she finally feels like herself. Someone posted it on Facebook with the intention of mocking the fact that being “nonbinary” is apparently all about how one styles one’s hair. However, I think there’s much here to discuss beyond the “haircut = identity” thing. When I read this article, I saw myself in it a lot. I see a heartwarming story about a lesbian who is discovering how to be herself. The things she did are the same as the things I did. The only difference is that nobody convinced me that my being a gender-non-conforming dyke meant that I wasn’t female. I am female and attracted to females, so I call myself lesbian. That’s what the word lesbian is actually for.
However, this “nonbinary”…

Having been around, dated and lived with many transgender females in the past, it has provided me a with information that many are not privy to. Many of these so called Male to Trans are dealing with deep rooted issues that stem from lack of self worth, anger and frustration. They failed as men, fathers, husbands and in many other aspects of life. They had poor to no relationships with their fathers, some never got to meet them, and now feel as if they cannot fulfill the role of manhood in life since they never were taught how.
The “dream” of being a woman is deep for many, its as if they wish they could run away from reality and their responsibility while “becoming” the other sex, thinking this will solve all their problems, but in reality, the problems only worsens and now they have to face the catastrophe they…
