EDIT: this video was removed from youtube but is available here. its worth the watch. click through to observe joe the plumber in his natural habitat (embarrassing himself and speaking out of his ass) and continue below:
heres a video of a male speaker demonstrating a facet of male-privilege: demanding respect. he thinks that just because he is alive, and conscious, that he has the right to espouse his opinion (on a topic he clearly knows nothing about), and to be taken seriously, and to not be criticised, to boot!
i think we can all agree that joe is male, and he is demonstrating male privilege in this video. because from the time he was born he was never told otherwise, this man clearly thinks that hes not only entitled to his asinine opinion about *whatever* (insert any opinion on any topic) but also the god-given right to “not be chastised for it.” joy behar is no feminist, but she is an outspoken woman and she knows better. women are used to being criticised, chastised, silenced, and everything up to and including being threatened, raped, tortured and killed when we speak out, or “act up.” men arent. FULL STOP.
so knowing what we know about male privilege and how it works, including who has it and who doesnt, watch the video. then, read up on the behaviors and actions that make up transactivism, and utterly define transwomen to a “T” including agendas and communication styles, and tell me: is joe the plumber a TRANSWOMAN? because thats exactly how many transwomen behave, when they arent getting the respect they want demand, and the freedom from criticism they have been used to, all their lives.
now, i dont really think that joe the plumber is a transwoman, but in all honesty, he could be. he could be a non-operative (ie. still has his dick); lesbian (ie. still fucks women with the dick he still has); male-sexed, male-gendered, and male-identified transwoman. in other words, inside his own mind, he “feels” at odds with everything he says, feels, thinks, and sees in the mirror, but chooses not to do anything about it. ok. now, for those of you who are still with me: should this person be allowed to use a womens restroom, if the desire overcame him to do so? why or why not?
in other words, is the only thing that *makes* him *not* trans is that he self-identifies doesnt-not-self-identify as a man? honestly. what makes him a man, and not a non-operative lesbian male-sexed male-gendered male-identified transwoman?
but my main point is this, and it explains why transwomen and aggressive, entitled men behave exactly the same under similar circumstances, and the similarities are utterly uncanny. joe the plumber isnt a transwoman. transwomen are men. period.
