Women Don’t Need Your Permission

“If a group of African-Americans wants to hold a civil rights discussion, does it need a panel of white people to evaluate it first?

If a group of Christians wants to hold a religious service, shall the area’s atheists be invited to approve their plans?

If some gay men want to start a sex club, shall straight women take ownership of the membership roster?

Or can people be trusted to evaluate their own interests and assemble with those who share them?”

My Only Path to Power

Suppose a group of women decided to start an endometriosis support group.

Endometriosis, if you don’t know, is a disorder affecting the lining of the uterus.

Suppose the members of this group wanted the group to exclude men. “Cis men,” if you prefer. Wouldn’t that make sense? First of all, men don’t have uteruses, so they can’t have endometriosis, so they don’t need support for it. Second, it could be potentially embarrassing to discuss the symptoms of endometriosis in front of men.

And since the definition of “woman” has become contentious, suppose the group, if explicitly asked, would like to deny entrance to trans women as well. After all, trans women don’t have uteruses. So the above concerns apply.

And if a trans woman is trying to get into an endometriosis support group, without having any need whatsoever for such support, that’s suspicious and boundary-crossing behavior. I mean, what does that…

UNBC women’s centre posts ‘No Terfs’ sign on door

Hard fact: women are not welcome to a Women‘s Centre.
Transgender males who think they are women are.

Purple Sage

Hello friends,

This ridiculous sign actually made me come out of my blogging hibernation to make a post. At the University of Northern British Columbia, students have put a “No Terfs” sign on the front door of their Women’s Centre, ironically right above a sign saying “All Welcome.”

This is 2018, and women who understand human reproductive anatomy and whose activism focuses on rights for female humans are no longer welcome in places that purport to enhance rights for female humans. Such women are such loathsome garbage that they aren’t even considered part of the ‘everyone’ who is supposed to be included in all-inclusive spaces. Organizers aren’t able to grasp the basic illogic, stupidity, and misogyny of this position.

The Belle Jar

1.

I am six. My babysitter’s son, who is five but a whole head taller than me, likes to show me his penis. He does it when his mother isn’t looking. One time when I tell him not to, he holds me down and puts penis on my arm. I bite his shoulder, hard. He starts crying, pulls up his pants and runs upstairs to tell his mother that I bit him. I’m too embarrassed to tell anyone about the penis part, so they all just think I bit him for no reason.

I get in trouble first at the babysitter’s house, then later at home.

The next time the babysitter’s son tries to show me his penis, I don’t fight back because I don’t want to get in trouble.

One day I tell the babysitter what her son does, she tells me that he’s just a little boy, he doesn’t know…

TransDykes: The Anti-Lesbian Antifa

“TransDykes are heterosexual men who identify as transwomen. They consider Lesbianism a form of fascism because female homosexuality excludes male-bodied persons. But any woman who publicly acknowledges the existence of biologically female human beings is their enemy, especially Feminists, who want to abolish, not celebrate, the sex stereotypes that transwomen identify with.”

Healthcare in Russia

I’ve just had a similarly amazing experience in Belgrade, Serbia.

War Pigs

by Stan Jacox

A couple people on that thread were interested in medical care conditions here (Stan lives in Russia) so I wanted to relate my story that may resonate with them.

I am not sure if this is relevant for the other thread members but here it is.

Regarding health care….As non-citizens you would need insurance or just pay out of pocket. There is no waiting for appointments and there are many intermediate facilities called Polyclinics where most services that are needed for anything except acute care or operations, or hospitalization. That really cuts down on the cost of providing routine care, everything in one building including lab tests.

Cost of services for non-residents is considered expensive by Russians who always assumed it should be free. But to foreigners, the usual response is “Is this ALL?”

Here is a long story of one of the very few times I…
