Does anyone else feel sad for women who are trying to be male?
I went in AskTG and there's a few FtM posts that just make me so sad. I hated being female from 11-14 fuck actually I only started liking being a woman after discovering this sub and radical feminism. Around 11 I went through a phase where I told people call me by a boy's name and cut off my hair. I got mad when boys my age called me male though (they were dicks though).
I feel like so many of these girls describe the powerlessness all women feel. All women want to be treated as male. All women hate being female (the way society treats us, period issues, dealing with doctors) so I really feel for FtM who describe wanting to be male. It's just really really sad that society has beaten so many of us down to the point we can't even identify with our own bodies.
It sucks that FtM feel like they can't come to our sub cause we're hateful in their minds.
Could we make a stickied post directly for FtM? Basically saying what GC women stand for, what radical feminism is, maybe something supportive? I like that this sub is combative and does encourage discussion (arguments) but maybe in the stickied post we can avoid posts saying they should fight for women's rights instead of dipping out of the gender.
Idk. It just made me sad because I understand FtM and many don't see that we do. Thoughts?
I mean, as an infertile woman with menstrual issues, I can understand how a uterus feels like a timebomb. As a trauma survivor, I understand the desire to be invisible and walk unmolested by even the male gaze.
But as a spiritual feminist, no, that's where I get lost. Because some here might think it ridiculous or magical thinking or reinforcing the ladyfeels, but I am a creature tied to the moon, to the ebb and flow of the tides, who can read energy, and that is absolutely biological and not my social conditioning. I see SO many TIMs trying to colonize witchcraft and it urks me, because I know they cannot feel how we know why the moon goes dark and full. To be a woman is to know mystery. Anyone on birth control is somewhat divorced from this experience.
I also don't understand the TIFs obsessions to be gay men. It's wierd af to me, to be appropriating their culture and it's like the TIFs want to be simultaneously liked for being campy and attractive, but hold on to that sassybitchcard and avoid the confrontation of being an assertive female. Gay mens' obsession with appearance is just as shallow as a woman obsessed with makeup and clothes. They're just conscripted for assumed consensual anal.
I'm trying to be as understanding as I can, but I don't understand people who try to make fantasy reality. We ALL live with limitations and weaknesses. Some people view that as a challenge to overcome them, some embrace them as a Christian duty to bear, some ignore them to their detriment. The overwhelming amount of trans folks obsessed with porn and anime says they are people detached from universal human emotion.
