Yep. Apparently the radical Left is trans-phobic and insists on having female-only events — by which they mean real females and not just pretend ones. It reminds me of the lesbian couple who complained to the Houston Chronicle about the family section of the gay pride parade being put near the S&M groups. It is fascinating to watch people pull up the perversion drawbridge once they’ve crossed their favorite part.
Go read this entire post. Yes, it can hard to follow with the alphabet soup of perversions that McCain describes, but you owe it to yourself. Via The Rocky Horror Dating Game: Translesbians Encounter Queer Hate.
Radical egalitarianism is a sort of philosophical insanity, premised as it is on the idea that everything is equal, even things that are fundamentally different. When you begin with an obvious falsehood as the premise of your argument, the conclusion will necessarily be madness.
Ten days ago, I brought you up-to-date about an emerging controversy on the extremist fringe. Radical feminists who wish to exclude trannies from their events are accused of “transphobia”:
RadFem 2013 was a conference in London, which resulted in a gigantic controversy because radical feminists insisted on excluding the “transgendered” from their female-only event, and one of the featured speakers, Australian lesbian feminist Professor Sheila Jeffreys, was about to publish a new book, Gender Hurts: A Feminist Analysis of the Politics of Transgenderism, that was deeply offensive to the “T” people represented in the LGBT acronym.
How crazy did that conflict become? At one point in April, the venue tried to cancel the event after discovering that “certain language was used and some statements were made about transgender people that would go against our equalities and diversity policy.” Another RadFem conference organizer, Cathy Brennan of Baltimore, was meanwhile all over Twitter announcing “transwomen are men” and comparing them to MRAs (men’s rights advocates).
Brennan’s outspoken hostility to “transwomen” — including those she calls “Pretendbians” — takes it to a whole new level of crazy:
Basically, Cathy Brennan is the Fred Phelps of radical lesbian feminists. Brennan’s message seems to be, “Feminism is for man-hating socialist homosexual perverts and we don’t want to associate with a bunch of surgically mutilated psychotic freaks.”
Gosh, it’s kind of hard to choose sides here, isn’t it?

This is the logical consequence of mocking God’s created order. If you feed lust and rebellion you don’t satisfy it, you make it grow. And this is what it looks like as it grows. This is a sad lot of horribly confused and/or evil people. They need Jesus.
