I've been seeing this from a few male detransitioners, lately. A reminder that we rad fems are not doing enough on their behalf. That we're forgetting or ignoring boys and men harmed by the gender cult.
Let me explain how that's not really true, and it's more that we can't do anything about it, beyond what we're already doing.
First of all, feminism has always been about women. It's perfectly reasonable for an organization for the rights of gay men to focus on gay men, and no one else. It's perfectly reasonable for an Indigenous rights organization to focus on Indigenous people, and no one else. Hell, it's perfectly reasonable for an animal welfare organization to focus on animals, and not people at all.
Only feminists are asked to share the fruits of their labor with everyone else, even their oppressors!
We have a lot on our plate right now. Radical feminism is not only about transgenderism. We've lost the right to abortion in the US. Women and girls the world over face violence, murder, and human trafficking. We have to deal with society, religion, and government that all work together to exploit us. We're fighting all of this PLUS a social contagion that was started by men. So as far as "we're not doing enough"- we're stretched to the limit. Believe me, we would LOVE to have resources to spare. We just don't. Quite frankly, the majority of our allyship with others is a one-way street. When the beneficiaries of our allyship are men, we don't see nearly as much hard work on our behalf. We're on our own for the most part.
Now- are we doing enough for males who get sucked into the gender cult? Well, honestly, who sounded all the alarms in the first place? Who pointed out that HSTS was a product of homophobia? Who made it clear that there is no changing sex, and that these hormones and surgeries were destructive?
And who didn't want to hear it?
Radical feminists have not just faced vitriol for telling the truth. They've faced physical violence, getting fired from their jobs, getting banned from social media, and even being arrested by the police. Posie Parker correctly stated that Susie Green had abused her son by getting him castrated in Thailand at 16, and the police hauled her in for questioning.
By contrast, Matt Walsh has made a fortune with his plagiarized movie, and conservative writers now have clickbait gold. Jordan Peterson got a book deal for rejecting they/them pronouns. They've all enjoyed a slam dunk subject that makes them look good, unlike the emotionally draining and unlikable issues of abortion or their traditional homophobia. Now they don't even have to talk about the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, let alone try to defend them. Thank god for transgenderism! An easy topic where conservative thinkers don't have to explain themselves! What a refreshing change!
That said, conservatives will still malign gays and lesbians as anti-Western civilization. They will do nothing to force compensation to victims of botched surgery, because Republicans wrote the very legislation that prevent successful lawsuits in the first place. They focus on mocking trans people as "loony liberals." Fat, blue haired, unlikable youngsters melting down in public, looking stupid and foolish. They enjoy laughing at gendermeisters, and lumping them in with gays and lesbians. They are less interested in Big Pharma profits and predatory surgeons. Gov. Abbott and Asa Hutchinson are two cases in point about how they say they want to reign in shit like puberty blockers, but they don't when given the opportunity.
Conservatives are even less interested in hearing about how their religious beliefs and homophobia contributed to the problem, especially for HSTS. Transgenderism is not revolutionary- it's actually very regressive. Even nonbinary silliness is traditional: true men and women meet traditional gender roles, and any deviation thereof means something is amiss. Conservatives will accept NO accountability for that, though. Ever.
If anybody in this counter-movement is not pulling their weight, it would be the conservatives.
Another group I would say is not doing all that much would be gay men. Some are great keyboard warriors. Don't get me wrong; I actually think that's very important. We learn a lot online, and voicing your insights is actually excellent help. But how many gay men have been pushing back compared to lesbians and radical feminists? Fewer. Even though as gay men, they ought to be more outraged on behalf of HSTS men. Instead, sensible gay men are surrounded by heartless enablers. Shouldn't HSTS detranistioners be confronting the gay men who enabled them to gain virtue signal points? And thanking the gay men who took a lot of abuse for telling the truth?
I don't see very much confrontation from detransitioners towards conservatives or the portions of the LGBTQ community that enabled them.
Shit, I don't even see much confrontation towards the field of psychiatry! The very field that claims a man can have the "mind" of a woman. The one discipline that makes everything else possible. You'd think if anybody deserved flack for dropping the ball, it would be psychiatry/psychology.
All of this has been covered by radical feminists since the 1970's. Most people found out the truth from "terfs." That's why TRAs dogged feminists so much- they didn't need to go after conservatives. Conservatives weren't the ones putting the info out there. Jennifer Bilek did all the muckraking in the 11th Hour Blog. Janice Raymond hit the nail on the head with The Transsexual Empire. Posie Parker pointed how Susie Green was actually a child abuser. Exulansic put a lot of time into showing how Jazz Jennings is an abuse victim, too. The initial conservative response was "ew, look at the queers lately!" and that was it. Point, laugh, and scorn. Don't ask what the fuck Abbvie is up to.
I'm not quite sure what more feminists can do, or how much more they can sacrifice. The majority of information out there was put together by feminists. We spoke to anybody willing to speak to us, including Tucker Carlson, The Spectator, The Heritage Foundation, and more. We built our own channels and blogs.
It wasn't that we didn't do enough to save you from yourselves. It's that you truly believed everything we said was evil, and that your enablers had your best interests at heart.
In terms of what you could possibly get out of feminists, I think you've maxed out.
It's not that I don't care that Big Pharma profits from the suffering of effeminate boys or gay men. I absolutely do. I just don't agree that rad fems haven't done enough. I don't know that they could possibly do more.
Part of why no one could stop you, when you were in this cult, was the belief that women A) owe you and B) are always letting you down and C) however we're doing it, we're doing it wrong.
Transgenderism is not a product of misandry. It's not a product of feminist selfishness.
It IS a product of capitalist medicine. It IS a product of traditional values about gender roles. It IS a product of homophobia. It IS a product of post-modernism, where men's sexuality is centered as sacred. Men are the source, either the conservative side, or the progressive one.
If we're not willing to admit that, I don't see transgenderism fading away. I don't see justice for detransitioners. I don't see protection for young gay people. Or even just troubled young people.
