For many years now, the New Gay Man, speaking through activists from Jim Fouratt to Peter Tatchell have claimed that HomoSexual TransSexuals (HSTS) are a form of ‘failed gay man’. But is this true or even a reasonable position to take?
In a recent Twitter conversation a correspondent proposed an alteration to the conventional understanding that placed homosexual men as a subset of HSTS. In other words, she suggested that, far from transitioned HSTS being ‘failures’, all homosexuals are in fact also transsexual but for various reasons some repress or deny this.
It might seem surprising, but I had never considered this inversion, or the implications of it, but the more I thought about it, the more sense it made.
In the first place, only HSTS are true transsexuals. They exhibit a consistent set of characteristic differences from the norms for males in their ethnicity that makes them readily identifiable, at least to those familiar with their profile in that ethnicity. We have already discussed these, listing them, for males, as: tendency to be smaller than the average and lightly built for their height, often showing feminine digit ratios, markedly, and naturally feminine voices and mannerisms, neoteny (baby-face) and a natural preference for feminine modes of behaviour and dress. They probably exhibited strong Gender Non-Conformity in childhood and would have felt homosexual attraction in the form of crushes years before puberty.
While their homosexuality does not define HSTS as people, it is a reliable diagnostic indicator. This is important because there is another form of Male-to-Feminine expression, which is non-homosexual or autogynephilic; I have discussed this at length already.
Some researchers in the past used the terms ‘True transsexual’ to describe HSTS and ‘Pseudo transsexual’ to describe non-HSTS or AGP. While the latter can cause understandable discomfort, they are nevertheless an accurate statement of the position: HSTS are truly transsexual in that they transcend their birth sex on a range of parameters. While it is unfashionable to say so, they are ‘inverts’, shifted so far towards the female norm (for males) across a spectrum of parameters that they cannot reasonably be asked to perform as men.
In previous societies and in most of the world today, they are not so asked. Instead they live as women, and many have fulfilled lives. The problem in the West is that extreme homophobia, applied for centuries, removed the social space that remains available to these individuals in many other cultures — including, though it might be surprising, Islamic ones.
As a result, during the 1960s a new model appeared in the West — the New Gay Man. In this, the former inverts are told that they must do that which is next to impossible for them — to be masculine. And, worse, that they must suppress their natural femininity at pain of being condemned by the ‘gay’ society around them (which is not very gay at all, for true homosexuals.)
The problem with gay culture
Part of the problem is that so-called ‘gay’ culture is made up of several groups and homosexual males comprise only one of them. To understand this, you must first understand the definition of ‘homosexual’ that we are using. It is: ‘exclusively attracted to men from childhood’ (for males, the inverse for females.) So men who have had desires for women are not homosexual. You can’t ‘become’ homosexual, nor can you be ‘cured’ of it. You just are and it entails being inverted on exactly the same parameters as we saw affecting HSTS. In effect, HSTS are the natural result of their own inversion on these parameters, and it is this that explains the powerful gender dysphoria experienced by so many homosexual males: they would be far more comfortable as women.
Unfortunately, while genuinely HS males make up a large part and indeed, probably a majority of New Gay Man culture, they are not the dominant members. This is because of their naturally submissive and feminine natures. This has allowed the more strident members to take control and to effectively coerce HS men to living according to the New Gay Man lifestyle.
One way we can fact-check this is by looking at the way non-HomoSexual or autogynephilic transwomen constantly attempt to dominate, colonise, erase and control HomoSexual TransSexuals. Since many of the men inside the New Gay Man culture are themselves autogynephilic and enjoy receptive anal sex as a part of their desire for ‘sex as a woman’, we should expect them to behave in the same domineering way that they do towards the generally more agreeable homosexual males: which we see.
Numerous studies have been carried out, e.g. by Dr Michael Bailey, which confirm that HS males have a distinct profile. They are easily differentiated from non-HS males by the way that they are shifted towards the female-typical on a range of parameters. They are likely to be smaller and more lightly built than related males; often had a history of childhood GNC; have been exclusively attracted to males from before puberty; dislike rough and tumble; are often artistic and especially, may be dancers or in similar performing arts; they tend to be highly agreeable and emotive, very nurturing and so on. Bailey even stated that he could spot such an individual, even on the phone, by the way he spoke — something that I would entirely agree with.
The adverse reaction to these suggestions comes, often, not from actual homosexual males, but from the other males who form a part of ‘gay’ culture. These include: hebephiles (attracted to pubescent boys), ephebophiles (attracted to post-pubertal adolescent boys), bisexuals indulging one half of their sexuality, adventuring pansexuals, our old friends the non-trans AGP males whose satisfaction is through ‘sex as a woman’ — that is, being penetrated — and even men who simply have had enough of women but still desire sex. All of these are found amongst the New Gay Men and, unsurprisingly, many of them are not very feminine at all.
It is from this that proceeds the myth that the desire to be sexually penetrated doesn’t make a man feminine. Of course it does, but many men in gay society are not seeking to be penetrated, but sexual targets to penetrate.
New Gay Man culture
What happens within New Gay Man culture is that a predatory meat-market is set up, within which males attracted to certain physical attributes in male partners can hunt. Their prey is the HS males who are attracted into this lifestyle. Typically, these will be passed from man to man as they age until, by the time they are 25 or so, there are no available partners left; and at this point they might develop a relationship with another like themselves.
To make the bad worse, it is axiomatic, within New Gay Man culture, that somebody has to do the penetrating. In the old days, homosexual males would seek out straight partners — well, they were probably a bit bisexual, but most men, in the dark, are pretty casual about where they shove it. The New Gay Man eschewed this. Unfortunately, given that there are actually more homosexual males in NGM culture than the other types, in order to have sex at all, since they cannot legitimately access straight partners any more, the homosexual males have to learn to penetrate each other.
There’s no doubt that, in the older models, individuals transitioned from being recipient to active partners as they grew older; this is clearly demonstrable from evidence such as the ‘molly’ scene in London and elsewhere. Indeed there are remarkable cultural standards in which it is normal practice for boys to be penetrated until they are old enough to grow a beard, at which point they switch roles. This model is found across Islamic culture but also in many others, and has been recorded for thousands of years. However the emphasis of the New Gay Man cult has always been on ‘egalitarianism’ — and requiring members to both give and receive.
It is somewhat unfortunate, as an aside, that this new model coincided, in its arrival, with that of HIV/AIDS. This disease is primarily spread sexually and the vector of transmission is most often from penetrator to penetrated. But the mixing-up of sexual roles and the extreme promiscuity that characterises New Gay Man culture basically meant that individuals were infected one day and then infected a partner the next. A wildfire epidemic ensued which literally wiped out the NGM populations in many cities.
On the other hand, what all HS males actually want is a straight male partner, not another HS pretending to be straight. Now that presents a slight problem since, of course, straight men are not attracted to masculinity. So the more the boy ages the less likely it is that he can attract the kind of men he dreams of and is instead thrown to the wolves of exploitative ‘gay’ men whose interest in him will last only as long as he falls into the physical category they are attracted to.
The alternative would be, of course, for our young HS to transition. This is one area where southeast Asia becomes interesting. Here, there is far less social pressure for a young HS to conform to masculine gender expectations and so, far more elect not to. Even though the poison of USican ideas has spread to these areas, they struggle to compete with the powerful indigenous culture. In effect, ‘gay=girl’ for males, and that being the case, why not just buy a dress, grow your hair and become a girl? The culture around you will, by and large, be, if not supportive, then at least tolerant, especially if you make a good-looking girl, which many HSTS do. While local men might be, for social reasons, no more inclined to pursue the HS as a girl than as a boy, there is always the chance that, through the internet, one might meet that Westerner who is ‘open-minded’ and will disregard the presence or history of a penis.
It is generally harder for TS to get sex in southeast Asian countries, outside of the sex-tourism hotspots, than it is for HS boys; there are plenty of predatory males, often married men, who will pursue the latter. Indeed, I have lost count of the number of ladyboys — as pre-op TS in these countries call themselves — who readily admit to having been raped or otherwise sexually abused by close male relatives, while they were HS boys. However, this experience, while unpleasant, was neither the cause of their homosexuality nor did it discourage them in it. Indeed, it was their clearly homosexual nature that led to the attack, in every case that I have encountered. They will say ‘Oh, he knew I was gay,’ or something similar. This by no means condones the event but it does contextualise it. Boys are seen as legitimate sexual targets in many such cultures.
What these experiences do, far from turning the boy away from his innate homosexuality, is to sensitise him to the kind of men attracted to him. Remember, the boy desires a strong, supportive straight man who will ‘take care’ (i.e. fund) him and be his life partner; and to such a man the young, now transitioned, HSTS will dedicate her life. She knows full well that ‘gay’ culture is rife with exactly the kind of men who would — and possibly did — abuse her and she steers clear of them. At the same time, she sees having a relationship with another gay boy like herself as essentially lesbian in nature and, while she might well settle for such a relationship in later life, when she is young and beautiful she is still prepared to shoot for the stars.
So what she does, as soon as she can, is transition.
Coming home to roost
This is coming home to roost in the West with a vengeance, but what does it mean?
From my inbox as well as numerous other sources, I know the difficulties that true homosexual males — who are, remember, the small cute ones — face within the New Gay Man culture. Their natural femininity is rejected and they are expected to suppress it in favour of the ghastly faux masculinity that is the hallmark of New Gay Man culture. If they do not do so they will be shunned.
This phenomenon has been called many things, such as ‘femiphobia’ and ‘sissyphobia’ but let’s be clear and call it for what it is: it’s simple homophobia. The whole New Gay Man cult rests on the underlying premise of homophobia — that is, the irrational fear of homosexual males, who are by definition, effeminate. Indeed, the irony is great: amongst the most homophobic groups in society is the New Gay Man culture, which most homosexual males in the West are condemned to be a part of. NGM culture is more than a vehicle for homophobia, it is perhaps its most powerful expression.
Manly manly men * TM
The New Gay Man nonsense seeks to preach a doctrine of ‘gay’ being about manly manly men* TM with perhaps a little sweaty sock essence just to make it all more convincing, having sex with other manly manly men, their clones. Yet when we look through history, where is this model? Nowhere. It is an invention, an artefact of the 1960s. It is in fact an expression of rank homophobia, expressed by men who themselves claim to be homosexual. And as such it stinks.
So what can a feminine boy do, confronted by this? Until very recently, if he expressed any femininity at all, he could look forward to being administered shots of testosterone to ‘man him up’ not to mention the routine beatings and insults which could come not only from the straight culture around him, but also from the New Gay Man…a young homosexual male can be anything he likes, my dears, except a girl. Oh, no, that is never tolerable. That is the line one must not cross.
Or, he might have found himself in the hands of ‘therapists’, well-meaning or otherwise, who believed — either sincerely or out of financial interest — that turning a GNC child into a gay male was a more desirable outcome than that he transitioned into a woman. For the time being, this horrible process, sometimes involving unwarranted hormone therapy and often years of brainwashing, has been set back; but make no mistake, the homophobic and transphobic political elements in society are just waiting to come back with a vengeance and turn the clock back. And the ones who will suffer most will be, as they always have been, the HSTS.
Despite the danger, things have changed a bit. Now we have high-profile HSTS who openly admit to having once been gay boys: Blaire White, Janet Mock, Laverne Cox and many others now appearing. They use both conventional media but more to the point, modern social media to get their message across: just because you are a gay boy doesn’t mean you have to be a man. You don’t have to spend your life hiding your natural femininity. You’re not condemned to decades of gender dysphoria followed by those in which you bitterly regret what society — and those you should have been able to call your allies — did to you. There is another way. And when transwomen like this are seen having successful lives and relationships with straight men — which is all a homosexual boy really wants — the foetid meat-market of the New Gay Man scene palls.
At the same time, a great many straight men are becoming disillusioned with women. Perhaps they have had damaging divorces, find it impossible to contact their children, their relationships with them constantly policed and poisoned by a woman they once loved. Perhaps they have no intention of having children or at least, of having more. Perhaps they are attracted to younger women and appreciate that, in the contemporary climate of bogus ‘age appropriateness’, this might be difficult. Perhaps — indeed, this is commonly the case — they like to penetrate anally, preferring the sensations it provides. You cannot deny the beauty of HSTS and, at least with her, there is no risk of being trapped in a paternity suit.
For this rejection of women, women themselves must accept blame. They invented feminism, which long ago gave up any pretence that it was about ‘equality’ and espoused a simple agenda: the eradication of masculinity and the abolition of men. Today, feminism is synonymous with simple misandry, a profound and irrational hatred of men and anything masculine. This goes far beyond the natural tendency of women to police behaviour in their immediate surroundings, to the deliberate attempt to extirpate masculinity form society and remove men from all positions of authority.
Sleeping with the Enemy
Why would a man sleep with his sworn enemy when he could have a cute girly-boy who loves him to bits instead? Does a vagina really make that much difference? Yes indeed, men do desire children, but they like good sex better and, if a man has already satisfied his reproductive urge and finds himself single, why would he even associate with people who hate him?
Let’s be clear: the taboos that prevented straight men from forming relationships with girly-boys, ladyboys, HSTS, call them as you will, have been largely banished, not by men, but by women. Women sowed the wind and now they should indeed reap the whirlwind.
As a result, social intolerance of relationships between men and transwomen have been collapsing across the Western world. They very much do remain in place as regards relationships between two men, but where a transwoman can ‘pass’ they have more or less disappeared. Look at Keanu Reeves’ well-publicised relationship with Jamie Clayton, just for one. Or Janet Mock’s successful marriage. And all over the West, men are forming relationships with HSTS, perhaps less publicly, but just as importantly.
Taken together with a lowering of intolerance towards MtF HSTS transsexualism, it seems likely that, increasingly, more HS boys will transition fully and live as women, whether or not they elect to have GRS. Evidence from other parts of the world suggests that only a very small number will do that.
The population that will inevitably feel this the most strongly is the New Gay Man, who will be deprived of the influx of young HS that the system depends on for its survival. While they may be no more culpable than women, there will always be men prepared to tolerate abuse from women, or too hidebound or afraid to break out of the mould women have cast them in. The much smaller population of New Gay Men, deprived of a supply of fresh meat, could collapse.
The Death-Knell of the New Gay Man
In the end, Jim Fouratt might well be proven right: the ‘crazy queens’ could indeed toll the death-knell of the New Gay Man.
For those HSTS who transition successfully, a life and a social space outside the New Gay Man culture is eminently achievable, even without major surgeries. These transwomen would avoid the abusive meat-market that is New Gay Man culture and might well find strong relationships with the straight men they actually desire. The cost will be the collapse, or at least the reduction, of the New Gay Man and his power-base.
In the end we should recognise that the New Gay Man was a function of the social attitudes of the era in which he was born and the world has moved on. While it remains true that most transwomen in the West are autogynephilic rather than transsexual, HSTS can, with wit and sophistication, use this to their advantage. After all, in almost all cases they are so much more passable than AGPs that they are even more likely to be taken for women, as long as men in dresses like Bruce ‘Caitlyn’ Jenner provide the public image of transwomen.
High risk New Gay Man lifestyle
By transitioning, HSTS would avoid the high-risk New Gay Man lifestyle that, paradoxically, they are so unsuited to and instead can have a hope at least of a normal life as women. They can seek out an appreciative and supportive man, who likes women who prefer, as all HSTS do, those traditional, ‘stereotypical’ gender roles so detested by the colonies of androphobic harpies who today motivate feminism.
I can only say that this must be a better outcome than being put through the NGM meat-processing system. I doubt if the New Gay Man will die out altogether; but I have a feeling that his sell-by date is approaching.
