Transgenderism sometimes seems conveniently to reinforce male norms.
Back in October, a report from the BBC caught the attention of the trans movement because it conveyed the experience of lesbians who’d felt pressured into straight sex with trans-women (i.e., men presenting themselves as women):
One woman described her dates with trans-women as conversion therapy: “I knew I wasn’t attracted to them but internalised the idea that it was because of my ‘transmisogyny’ and that if I dated them for long enough I could start to be attracted to them. It was DIY conversion therapy.”
A trans woman raped a lesbian after a date: “[They] threatened to out me as a terf and risk my job if I refused to sleep with [them],” she wrote. “I was too young to argue and had been brainwashed by queer theory so [they were] a ‘woman’ even if every fibre of my being was screaming throughout so I agreed to go home with [them]. [They] used physical force when I changed my mind upon seeing [their] penis and raped me.”
Manipulating women into having sex is a very male thing to do, making this feel like a continuation of a sexual revolution that ostensibly freed women but ultimately shifted sexual dynamics in the direction preferred by the least responsible of men.
