FeMRA TyphonBlue: What if the men who seem to run the world … AREN’T REALLY MEN?

How women rule the world.
Women ruling the world?

When confronted with the simple fact that men hold the overwhelming majority of positions of power in the world – in government, business, culture, and pretty much everything else – MRAs like to pretend that the actual gender of those in power makes no difference because, well, the men in power are probably a bunch of manginas doing the dirty work of the women who really run the world. Or something like that.

Indeed, some MRAs have even managed to convince themselves that the very basic historical and sociological fact that men in power, by and large, tend to represent men’s interests more than women’s interests is some sort of locical fallacy – something that they’ve labeled  “The Frontman Fallacy.”

Now A Voice for Men contributor and YouTube videoblogger TyphonBlue has done these guys one better in terms of sheer antifeminist loopiness. In the comments on one of the Warren Farrell protest videos I recently wrote about, she argues that men in power don’t really push male interests because … they probably don’t even think of themselves as men.

Here she is, writing under her other nom-de-net Genderratic:

I don’t even know what to say to this. I mean, WHAT?!

PROTIP: You’re not going to convince anyone you’re a great ally of trans* people if you refer to them as “it.”

Oh, dear dog! I can’t with this.

Damselling does not exist, except as some faux-chivalrous exercise in mind wanking. And talk about solipsism! “Only I know what true suffering is! You’re all faking it!”

Also, back to the 8 year old not being traumatised because she will be damselled; nice way to make a child’s rape all about teh menz! Obviously, women and girls who are not trans only exist when a male type person looks at them. She fails at compassion. Can you imagine how painful it must be to go through life that filled with rage and hatred and bitter entitlement?

Also, about all the Canadian FeMRA’s – I apologise profusely for the horrible behaviour of my countrywomen. If I’ve ever met one of these charmers in real life, they at least had the (?) decency to keep it quiet.

Addition:

Of course, nothing of the previous post means that standing up against misplaced transphobia is anything other than sincerely standing up against transphobia. cassandrakitty’s point about how Quinn’s defenders oppose transphobic pile is also unaffected by my post.

Transphobia is wrong and bad and people who discriminate against or abuse transpeople are horrid. However, calling a jerk (who happens to be a transwoman) a jerk because she said jerky things does not make anyone a transphobe.

The central thread running through my feminism is that you don’t face anything resembling the kind of full on, unbridled, vicious misogyny trans women face. You just don’t. There are people there to rush to your defense in a way they never would for me.

Wait what?

The higher incidence of misogyny trans people experience invalidates the feminism of other people?

So a woman born a woman experiences less misogyny than a woman becoming her self because… But that would imply misogyny is especially severe for “men becoming women”, assumption being because they willingly choose/desire the inferior binary role, so it loops back around and wait is she more of a woman than the people who can happily rely on the fact that their identity is assigned by others desiring more fuck holes and this is somehow a bad thing for *the trans person who does not get that free role affirmation*

Hhhccchhhkkkkkkkkkk

I suggest you have some chocolate, abandon logic, and avoid this train wreck of a thread, Fibinachi. Then, I’m sure you’ll feel better soon, and that blue screen of death thing will clear right up.

Reading Valerie’s writing…it’s like Fidelbogan and the TimeCube guy had a baby, and then hired Michel Foucoult as a tutor.

Maybe Valerie had sads because David didn’t write a single post about her FeMRA stuff. Cuz everyone knows that to be featured in a post here totally improves your status among other MRAs.

Transition incidence has doubled in the 4 years since this smug, mocking, transmisogynistic bullshit was posted.

The nominally cismasculine are still more homeless, more jailed, and more murdered than the nominally cisfeminine.

And David Futrelle is still Cathy Brennan but with a hardon for Brianna Wu’s transitionerism.
