Anonymous asked: haha i love how radfems use that one person as an anecdotal example. you're not the first person to bring her up trust me. look at the top 1% of highest paid people, and they are disproportionally cis. oh and good on you for ignoring the first part of the ask with the statistic of higher trans abuse!

This is a blog promoting the book gender hurts, which you can purchase online or at your local book store. If you want to debate me anon, go to my blog: evilfeminist.tumblr.com but really you aren’t arguing a postion that I haven’t heard 50 million times before.

Anonymous asked: if trans women were only abused because they resemble cis women then they wouldn't be far more abused compared to cis women. The reason they are is that they are abused for being trans!! voila, trans oppression!

Trans male get attacked because either a)they look like women and are receiving normal treatment for a woman or b) they get attacked by other men because they look too much like a woman, and are breaking the status quo.

Anonymous asked: I did give credibility to it, you ignored it. trans people are far more likely to get murdered than cis people, for being trans. In America 60% of trans women report having been a victim of violence in their life, far higher than the proportion of cis women. should a trans person come out as trans chances are they will be abandoned by everyone they know or abused. no cis person needs to worry about coming out as needing to be a different sex.

 According to a 2013 global review of available data, 35 per cent of women worldwide have experienced either physical and/or sexual intimate partner violence or non-partner sexual violence. However, some national violence studies show that up to 70 per cent of women have experienced physical and/or sexual violence in their lifetime from an intimate partner

  • Between 40 and 50 per cent of women in European Union countries experience unwanted sexual advances, physical contact or other forms of sexual harassment at work [8].
  • In the United States, 83 per cent of girls aged 12 to 16 have experienced some form of sexual harassment in public schools [9].

Females are at risk of violence because they are female.

Anonymous asked: if you think it's hard for cis women to get jobs and power, it's far, far harder for trans people to get them. Almost every trans person is bullied and harassed at school for being trans.

and yet

Anonymous asked: oh of course not. being a trans woman entails facing a whole other dimension of oppression a cis woman could never come close to.

There is zero context to this ask, and minimal credibility to your claim.

If you ever figure that out let me know.

Anonymous asked: SURPRISE! trans women undergo treatment to look as like a woman as any cis woman!

If you think looking like a woman is the same as being a woman, man oh man do I have some news for you.

Anonymous asked: So I'm misogynistic for saying Jeffries looks like a man but you're not transphobic for saying all trans women look like men. typical radfem double standard. Anyway, if you can't address my points and only hurl insults, then clearly you're the clueless one.

it’s because SURPRISE! Trans women are men!

Anonymous asked: If I'm honest Sheila Jeffreys looks more likely to be biologically male than most trans woman i've seen. But anyway, not every little girl goes through child abuse, molestation battery etc, and those things can happen to little boys too so I don't see your point about trans women never coming close to childhood female oppression. But there are plenty of issues where cis men and women are not oppressed but trans people are. e.g. trans people getting disowned by family? That's the cis privilege.

You are misogynistic, basic, and don’t understand class analysis.
