I don’t get why radscum wouldn’t consider themselves biological determinists. They believe, as Freud said, “anatomy is destiny”: that you are what sex you were assigned at birth. Never mind…

SO BASICALLY, ACCORDING TO TRANSCUM, BIOLOGY CAN BE OVERCOME BY NEUROPLASTICITY AND OTHER MAJIK, SO FOLLOWING THAT LINE OF THINKING : FEMALES COULD JUST GET SRS AND THAT WOULD BE THE END OF OUR TRUBBLEZ WITH OPPRESSION.  DONE DEAL.  WHY DOESN’T EVERY FEMALE JUST BECOME A TRANSMAN?  YEP.  LOOK LADIES!  WE FOUND YOUR SOLUTION TO MISOGYNY!!!  END OF FEMINISM.

Actually, biology is noticeably more flexible than you are suggesting. Which is what has been exhaustively poited out to you. Or did intersex people just cease existing? Keep in mind, you can’t always tell from genital configuration what a person’s internal reproductive organs look like, how and if they function or what someone’s karotype status is. You are welcome to your own opinions, but not your own facts.

And lovely strawman you have there, did you make it all by yourself? The name is rather uninspired. That must have been hard work, do you need a gold star on it? Because unless you can find the trans* person in this conversation that suggested that transitioning ends gender based oppression, you’re just making shit up again.

love,

a person with a vagina and a uterus that has no time for your tomfoolery

[Bolding added]

More science and the truth that almost every trans* person I know fights against sexism, misogyny, and gender oppression in general.  Which is why we fight radscum, too.
