what are you so afraid of?

feminists get that we live in a rape culture, where every single man is shroedinger’s rapist to every single woman.  most nonfeminist women “get” this too, although they are loathe to call themselves feminists for whatever reason: hence we have the much beleaguered “bathroom dilemma” faced by men in dresses transwomen who insist on using female-only restrooms and invading other female-only spaces whenever the fuck it suits them. 

but what the transactivists are saying on this issue makes.  no.  sense.  the foundation of their argument that even non-op transwomen should be allowed unfettered access to women’s bathrooms is that *men rape, and they are afraid of being raped if they use the men’s room*.  ok, i am with them so far, i mean really.  men *do* rape.  and i wouldnt want to have to use the restroom next to them either.  HENCE THE PROBLEM. 

transwomen are not women, they are men.  they were raised to be aggressive and entitled, because they were born male, and raised male.  because they were raised male in a rape culture, transwomen will inevitably believe that sexual violence is a handy tool with which to punish women, and many transwomen want to punish born-women so badly they cannot contain it.  heres an example of this blatant misogyny and uncontrollable, sexually-charged rage against born-women who dare question transpolitics, or challenge “transwomen’s” entitlement, in any way: 

But I still want to be a woman so my only realistic option now is to abduct you…keep you in my cellar…make you use loads of moisturiser on your body….then skin you & make it into a lady suit, for me to wear.  {BTW, what dress size are you, I’m 5′ 11″ will you fit me?}  I’m pretty sure this is an original idea. 

ps. we should be together.  u wank-cam? 

and heres another: 

Wotcha marjieworm-twat. This is great.  I just read your transphobic rant & you are more barking than me. (You’re parents must be so proud of you}.  As your post removes your rights as a human, I can fuck with your head as much as I want.  Think I’ll do racist, not tried that before.  I want you to be my black nigga slave girl.  suck my muther fucking cock, you bitch.  Um, how was that? 

We can move onto date rape & cannibalism next if you like, in future mails.  Please write back.  I love you & we should be together. Quack! 

now.  the essence of “schroedinger’s rapist” which was addressed so well over at shapely prose (also known as “not TRANSPHOBIC! prose”) was that, as women, we have no way of knowing whether a man is a rapist until he attacks us.  NO.  WAY. OF. KNOWING.  UNTILHEATTACKSUS.  and all men are schroedinger’s rapist, to all women: thats the essence of living in a rape culture.  rape is normal, because aggression and entitlement are normal, if you are a man; and its become normal for women to expect it, and to fear it, from all men.  like it or lump it. 

so while shapely prose is quite eloquently telling us how it is, the transactivists who just *love* reading her continue to miss the point: that it applies to transwomen, too, but not as victims.  you see, transwomen are schroedinger’s rapists, too.  women have no way of knowing if transwomen are rapists, until they attack us.  NO.  WAY.  OF.  KNOWING. UNILTHEYATTACKUS.  its almost beside the point that we dont know if you really “feel” like a woman, or not, and we have no way of knowing.  and some of us dont fucking care how you feel.  we dont want to be using the toilet next to a fucking man, because of the threat of rape.  you know, the one that the transactivists like to pretend exists (when it suits them) and simultaneously does not exist, when it would benefit *them* if it didnt.  but thats the case.  not at all.  

of course, since some transwomen think that anything a woman could ever say “removes her rights as a human being,” and cannot contain their rape fantasies and threats of sexual violence against radical feminists who dare challenge them, i dare say its only a matter of time before a transwoman rapes a born-woman, in the name of feminism. and that, my friends, will be a sad, disasterous, white-hot angry day for feminists, and for feminism as a whole.  and surely the transactivists would cheer it on, and herald the rapist as a champion of womens rights, and a gender-nonconformist, to boot. 

what a fucking disaster this feminist-embracing of “transactivism” has turned out to be.  a DISASTER.  for women i mean.  not for men, or “transwomen”.  in other words, nothing new under the sun.
