Questions to Break the Brains of the Sex Unificationists
You'll find these are unanswerable and provoke rage reactions, destroying the most profound relationships in an instant, without comment.
In addition to “What is a woman?,” ask, “What is the word for the category ‘adult human female?’”
If necessary, clarify that this group includes all and only trans men and non-trans women (aka cis women). You will discover that we are no longer allowed to label that category. It has become literally unthinkable. She who must not be named. The point is to allow so-called trans men to feel they have escaped the categorical association with the ‘cis women,’ who are at the bottom of the pile of importance and are objects of disgust, same as ever, due to our bodily functions, which have not been suppressed or eliminated, and which trans women can never acquire.
How will allowing male people into female-only spaces protect some males from other males?
If they are saying that male trans women need to access female-only spaces to avoid non-trans males, how will entitling all males to enter the female-only space accomplish this? Won't the violent “cis” men just follow the trans women into the female-only space? Will they have gender checks at the door?
If some males have female brains, and some females have male brains, wouldn’t that suggest that both brains exist in both sexes? And therefore that sex does not predict brain type?
If sex is a spectrum, how did we determine which people were female, in order to say what a female brain looks like, which is needed to conclude that some males have a female brain?
This is the ‘stolen concept fallacy,’ where they take for granted that males and females can be separated into two groups to then deny that males and females can be separated into two groups.
Please define “gender.”
Gender is a term that is used differently depending on which group you are talking to.
Maculate conception folks uses gender to mean the distinct combinations of chromosomes and phenotypes that give rise to the possibility of male women.
Our Lady of the Perpetual Hormone Replacement Therapy uses the term gender to refer to the intense sense of personal identity that allegedly forms by age three and cannot be changed and which everyone has, that is one of two options, and is not related to chromosomes or phenotype.
Nonbinitarians use gender to refer also to an immaterial sense of personal identity, but it can change spontaneously at any point in the lifespan, there are more than two options, and some people do not have one (Agender).
Please always remember that the people you cannot reach are the people not ready to be reached. You must develop proselytic sixth sense for who is on the fence. I noticed a person on the Twitterbox tonight, bothering another woman for using the phrases women and females. I nearly did not recognize her. She was significant in my pre-terfery past, and I recalled how she had blocked me on Facebox, simply for being a terf, without any attempt to discuss it or persuade me. I am just evil to her now, tantamount to a nazi. I had posted an old Tiktok that was critical of gender ideology to my personal Facebox, testing the waters, and several people, including this person, quickly commented. Her comment was something to the effect of, “Yikes, this ain’t it.” That was the extent of our engagement on the topic, yet here she was attempting to reason with a stranger. Another person I had helped without caring that she was trans screeched that I didn’t deserve a platform for being such hateful trash. I don’t even remember which video it was - possibly the original Logic is TERF video. I quickly deleted it, but the damage was done.
We so-called ‘terfs’ are very much seen as actual committers of atrocities, literal Nazis, by the younger generation that is drunk on this kool-aid of validation and performative inclusion, which fears trans genocide yet will sterilize themselves and children on the basis of being trans and will eagerly self-report their pronouns to any official who asks. We are the wicked ones beyond redemption despite the fact that the last terf genocide was literally never. They believe we ought to be systematically decapitated while claiming to be anti-mass murder. It does not matter what your past connections were to them, or what the loss of that connection will mean for them in the future (setting aside what it means for you).
Yet, I would not trade it. She is a brilliant woman, and I certainly miss her. She knows firsthand what it means to be a female in this world, and she was close to a man who once yelled at me for foolishly suggesting it was sexist to not treat females and males as medically identical when both of us had birth defects. It was one of maybe two times he raised his voice to me, because it was that important. His Marfan syndrome meant that raising his voice risked connective tissue damage, and hurt besides, so he rarely did. He knew sex was real, and he’d be horrified to see men in women’s prisons today. He knew his sex impacted his disability. And deep down, she knows this as well.
Her comment to another person who I follow accused her of spreading terf rhetoric when this woman in fact was attempting to be inclusive by saying she was fighting for the rights of all women as well as all female people. But it’s not good enough. It is never going to be good enough unless you make special mention of the special men. Acknowledging trans women is an act of performative piety, similar to “praise be” or “blessed be the fruit” or “under his eye.” It adds nothing to the conversation when your goal is to discuss only the female people. But you have to perform inclusivity and communicate that you would never dare not think of them, no matter how irrelevant their manly male bodies are to the conversation, or else you risk group condemnation and ostracization. She i5s profoundly confused, and she badgered another woman in her confusion. She obviously did not know what terms this other woman should be using; she merely felt, based on her religious sensibilities, that this particular terminology was wrong. It was a destructive waste of time, rather than constructive criticism.
For some questions, there is no right answer. This invokes fear and anger at the source of the fear. If you use these questions to confront, I recommend using them strategically. If the person is very close to you, do you really need to be the one to bring it up? Perhaps tag-team a friend (as a sort of throw-away account incarnate) over to dinner to raise the points with your spouse or family member, so your relationship is not trashed in the process of gently prodding them to think logically about these topics. You do not always have to be the hero. You can work as a team to wake people up.
So I leave you with the immortal Tim Minchin’s Storm:
