The modern conflict between gender theory (the idea of a female soul trapped in a male body, and vice-versa) and homosexuals is well known, and we can point to many examples of homophobia in the wild among the 'queer' who have no respect for us, and among the many attempts to pathologize and TELL US that if we are not feminine enough, we are not really women. And likewise with the conflation of hypermasculinity and maleness.

The origin of the latter is firmly rooted in homophobic theories of psychology of the past. When it was popularly assumed by everyone that homosexuality was a disease and the psychologists would study us for signs of pathology, what they found were signs of non-conformity. Homosexuality, transsexualism (desire to live as the opposite sex), transgenderism (belief in a gender soul and other delusions) and transvetism (wearing opposite sex clothing), and fetishism were conflated, and all of these were viewed equally as defective.

The effort continues, nevertheless, to find that homosexual defect. Now they look in genes, they look in brain scans, they look in fetal development. Unable to find proof, they fake it. When their gender "treatments" of are found to have no therapeutic benefit, they suppress and deflect.

Homosexuality is still being pathologized. The pathology just has a new name. It's also a pathologizing that denies itself, both claiming that we need to be treated to live our best lives and claiming that we are not defective, though of course both cannot be true. The pathologizing is just buried now. But, increasingly we see the signs of it as the believers look on suspiciously at those gay men and lesbians who don't embrace this new medical model, who do not adopt a new label that signifies acceptance of the model. The unique targeting of gay men and lesbians begins to make sense, when we recognize the powerful influence that stigma from psychology has had on us for over a century.

Yes isn’t it interesting that the most “inverted” gay men and lesbians are the ones targeted for gender intervention? The more feminine a gay man is or the more masculine a lesbian woman is the more they supposedly need and require hormones and surgery and to “pass” as the opposite sex. And everyone is going along with it as if it’s not obviously eugenics to remove gender nonconformity and homosexuality from the population.

It's also a pathologizing that denies itself, both claiming that we need to be treated to live our best lives and claiming that we are not defective, though of course both cannot be true.

This is the part that makes me want to scream. “Protect trans kids” by castrating them. WHAT? It doesn’t make sense. How about we protect butch lesbian girls by creating a supportive environment with role models, education and acceptance? In what universe does providing a mastectomy to a healthy young woman constitute protection? That’s not protection it’s abuse.

If a masculine presenting girl says “I hate myself I want to be a man” how is saying to her “yes you’re right, you were born wrong” a therapeutic or caring response? It’s not. Something better would be “You know there are other girls who felt this way and they grew up to be brilliant women. Let’s talk about what’s bothering you.” Where’s the educational materials to guide young lesbians? Who is defending the lesbian community?

Another greats response is to ask simply “Why?” But that’s illegal! You can’t go around asking children why they hate their bodies! They might tell you they’re gay! Then you’d have to write that down and there would be a record of therapists referring gay and lesbian kids for chemical castration and breast amputation.

You are attracted to other females? You're uncomfortable being a female? Well we just need to get you a full body transplant. That's a totally normal, healthy, and medically do-able way to deal with it. /s

There's always been a war on lesbians. Men can't handle women being happy without men.
