There is one reality that we never talk about when pondering how in the world we got to where we are today.
The reason the transgender movement is so aggressive and bullying is because it’s being run by men. If you’re wondering why we’re not having arguments about “people with testicles” and women taking over men’s sports it’s because women who identify as men tend to want to mind their own business and live quietly. They can’t physically dominate men’s sports so why try? There’s nothing that extraordinary about the male form – not like with women’s bodies, which literally grow human beings. There’s no need to vilify the male body. They just want to be one of the guys and that’s about it.
But on the other side of that equation are men who wish to identify as women…and men are typically much more aggressive and more narcissistic than women. Of course, we all know that misogyny is nothing new. Aggression in men is a biological imperative to help support families, but it can be twisted in certain groups of men to become a perverted superiority. Think “Mad Men”, think Harvey Weinstein, think any industry in which men have the controlling interest and women are there to serve. There has never been a shortage of men who think of women as irrational and irrelevant for anything other than breeding.
Welcome to the transgender women’s movement.
It feels aggressive because men with an agenda have a tendency to get aggressive when they’re not getting what they want, and this particular group of men wants to be considered as women. The problem is those pesky women don’t take kindly to having their very nature erased from public discussion.
Shaming women for their periods, reducing womanhood to simply a feeling, demanding women respect the declarations of men, demanding women get in line and keep their opinions to themselves, labeling any woman who speaks up for herself as a “bitch” or worse…these are the tactics of misogynistic men that are as old as time, and these are the tactics currently being employed by the transgender movement crowd.
The sad irony is that even when we’re told we’re making progress, there are still men out there who hate women, hate that we have thoughts of our own, and think they should be the arbiters of what a woman is, looks like, feels like and how she acts.
It’s a story of the suppression of women’s rights that is made for Hollywood, but unfortunately the same perverted machoism that makes the trans movement so aggressive is the one that still runs Hollywood. Given what we’ve learned about #MeToo over the last two years, rampant misogyny is the norm. We certainly can’t look to Hollywood to defend women’s rights when it comes to their most basic right…the right to exist.
Toxic masculinity is running the transgender movement and it’s putting women in danger.
