Now that I Blame the Patriarchy has become the I Heart Transgender Rights blog, it is my duty as an absentee spinster aunt to encourage those readers who have questions about transgenderism to kindly do their own fucking research on their own fucking time. As opposed to infesting the comments with questions like “why should we call a MtF a woman?”.
The situation is analogous to when dudes infiltrate the blog to demand that feminists teach feminism to them. It’s tiresome, right, because the dudes don’t really want to know, they just want to bait you, right? Well, in a similar vein, it is our blogular position that the existence of a culturally sanctioned oppression of transgendered persons, including sanctions practiced by certain subsets of feminists, is, like the oppression of the sex class, to be considered settled fact. Advanced Blamerism will henceforth include the appreciation of this settled fact. Hence, blamers may no longer expect me, or anybody else conducting discourse under IBTP’s auspices, to explain transgenderism, or to assuage prejudice-based fears, or to defend transitude against transphobic “arguments.” Demands for these explanations and arguments and assuagements will be met with the usual sneers, and — I suppose it is inevitable — the occasional brief but explosive little flamewar.
Do they still call them “flamewars”? It’s been so long since I’ve used the Internet.
In closing, I repeat, for the eleventieth time and for your blaming pleasure, a couple of articles from the Savage Death Island Constitution:
Femininity, the practice of femininity, and the fetishization of femininity degrades all women, regardless of the gender assignment of the practitioner or fetishizer.
Stereotyping is a tool of the patriarchy.
Gender will be eliminated by the revolución.
The wieldment of male privilege is prohibited.
Now, let’s all just fucking get the fuck along. Jesus fucking Christ.
