eugenics reddit TERFs transmisogyny transphobia

“Eugenics isn’t actually a terrible idea,” Reddit transphobe explains 

From the TumblrInAction subreddit, which has become Reddit’s unofficial TERF hangout since the banning of the Gender Critical subreddit.

On the face of it, eugenics isn't actually a terrible idea. You don't need to look very far to see that there are plenty of people who have no business reproducing whatsoever. Discriminating on the basis of race, religion, even disability is wrong, sure, but at the same time I do believe there are plenty of people who are too damn stupid and irresponsible to be trusted with kids. The idiots who voluntarily chop off their dicks for brownie points on the internet aren't exactly a loss to the gene pool.

Most of them are white, middle class and college educated, by the way.

Mask off, I guess.

If they are college educated, wouldn’t that make it a big loss to gene pool. A majority of Americans don’t have a college degree and skilled workers are very important. Who cares what they do with their own dicks. Call me when they start chopping other people’s dick without their consent and medical reasons.

Also, there’s absolutely zero reason that a transgender woman (which is the category of person that I assume this babbling picklehead* is referring to) wouldn’t be able to remain in “the gene pool” by storing her sperm prior to genital surgery.

If I were looking for a sperm donor, for example, I would most definitely prefer to reproduce with the genes of a reasonable and principled transgender woman rather than those of this babbling picklehead.

*So called due to being sour, fermenting, and swimming in briny tears. No specific reflection on pickles intended: I love pickles, which are nice, unlike this babbling picklehead.

I would never physically stop this poster from reproducing, but I might support measures to keep them at least 100 yards away from schools. I do think it’s very telling how many transphobes are certain that everyone else is doing everything just to get attention on the internet. They can’t even imagine anything else in life that might make someone happy.

Why would it occur to them that principles are vaporous and the only reason to do anything is for attention on the internet?

I mean, they couldn’t be saying that the only reason that they say what they say is for attention on the internet, could they?

Fortunately, trans women are not chopping off their dicks for “brownie points”. Some choose not to remove their dick at all for personal reasons, and none of the ones who do are doing it for brownie points or any other kind of approval from anyone else.

So clearly he must be referring to some other (imaginary) group of people (straw trans women?), who indeed are no loss to the gene pool because they don’t exist in the first place.

if we did somehow drive a train to sillytown and adopted eugenics- this Terf would be the first person not allowed to reproduce .
What scares me about transphobes , or any bigot that this country seems to be riddled with is that they are thoroughly convinced that billions and billions share their reasoning, their worldview, and their disgust. (only the people who will. be gotfffff judged rational be the National Eugenics Council or some other imaginary authoritarian tool they fantasize about)

@Seth S

Trans women who get gender confirmation bottom surgery do not have their penises removed. The surgery is a lot more complicated than that. It’s more of a reconfiguration. It’s an important clarification to make, because the transphobic stereotype of “chop their dicks off” needs to die.

I disagree: I think it’s more likely that the people implementing eugenics would be conservatives who would say that only conservatives are eligible to reproduce.

A fit parent is one whose kids are well cared for. A straight kid is far safer in the care of a gay or trans parent than an LGBT kid is in the hands of a fashy “family values” conservative.

As bad as this person is, it could have always been worse:

They could have tried redefining eugenics to mean: “any action a transgender person performs while existing”

Sure seems to be the most effective strategy when it comes to slandering tacky ice cream shops

Whenever I heard someone discussing eugenics or licenses to be parents, I just remind them of the old voting literacy tests.

@Fishy Goat That’s deliberate. Transphobes been actively trying to frame being trans as an internet trend for years.
