Sexual terminology has become a major issue, or well, at least one that should raise a laugh.
So let’s clear it up, shall we?
Either male or female, defined at conception. This is immutable and cannot be changed.
Male: an individual specimen with XY chromosomes. Will normally have a penis and testicles.
Female: as above, but with XX chromosomes. Will normally have a vagina, clitoris, ovaries and breasts (in adulthood.)
Masculine: that set of behaviours and apparel generally considered consistent with male sex in a given culture.
Feminine, as above, consistent with female sex.
Man: a person born male with masculine gender.
Woman: a person born female with feminine gender.
Gender Non-Conforming (GNC)
General term indicating a person who presents in a gender ‘expression’ at variance with his/her birth sex. Almost all of snowflake culture falls into this category, but gays and lesbians do too, since their gender behaviour (who they sleep with) is at variance with social expectations for their birth sex. All legitimately trans people are by definition GNC.
General prefix to describe a GNC person who obviously presents in a gender not consistent with his/her birth sex. This includes crossdressers etc.
Transgender: Vague blanket term used as a political catch-all instead of GNC. (Which is more accurate.) Essentially meaningless today, it once meant ‘not quite transsexual’.
Transwoman: a male-born trans person.
Transman: a female-born trans person
(Please note, it is always ‘transwoman’ or ‘transman’, not ‘trans woman’ or ‘trans man’. )
A specific term referring to a subset of transwomen. She is a person born male, who is attracted to men, is generally slight, light in build, shorter than average, with neotenous features. They are often almost unfeasibly feminine as children and young adults. A transsexual, by definition, appears as a woman. She almost certainly takes hormones and has other procedures, including surgery, to make her appear more feminine. Transsexual prevalence is very much shaped by social tolerance levels. Many are found in Asia, few indeed in the West. She lives full-time as a woman but is chromosomally and biologically male. She is therefore closely related to feminine gay men (see below.).
Transvestite: a cross-dresser; that is, a person who is born one sex but wears clothing etc consistent with the other. These are mostly men. They are not transsexuals.
Genital Reconstruction Surgery (GRS)
The operation or operations required to turn the external genitalia of one sex into a cosmetic representation of the other. The success of these procedures ranges from highly convincing to Road Traffic Accident and the physical success from numb to orgasmic. While cosmetic vagina construction techniques seem well advanced, certainly in terms of appearance, phalloplasty is woefully inadequate, at best ‘creating something that might be mistaken for a penis on the other side of a dark room’.
Homosexual man (gay): Can be feminine or masculine. Most prefer to be penetrated. Many learn to enjoy penetrating because it is only fair. So-called ‘gay tops’ are vanishingly rare and are likely to be MSM.
Men who have Sex with Men (MSM): These are not homosexual and do not enjoy being penetrated. However, they may penetrate gay men for money or even because they like anal sex and there are no willing women or trannies handy.
Note: not all gays like to be penetrated, either because of fear of disease or of the pain. However, gays habitually lie about this too, since admitting to enjoying being anally penetrated may incur opprobrium.
Lesbian: Any woman who desires and seeks out women for sex. Note, however, that it is necessary to have been born with XX chromosomes to be a lesbian! Recent research suggests that most women are somewhat lesbian at some part of their lives.
Bisexual (Western): A person openly attracted both to men and women. Rare, but covert bisexuals are probably less so. More common amongst women than men, possibly for socio-cultural reasons. Pseudo-bisexualism is a function of autogynephilia.
Generic terms for trans people
Tranny: a trans person, usually a transwoman. While some object to the term, others embrace it wholeheartedly. They tend to be the ones with a better sense of humour.
Shemale: a porn-industry term for a pre-operative transwoman (ie retaining a penis.) Again, some, especially Snowflakes and Western autogynephiles, reject it, others embrace it. Best to ask.
Ladyboy: generic term for any GNC person of Asian origin. Nearly all such people, when speaking English, will use the term to describe themselves. Snowflakes and Western profile AGPs often attack its use, ignoring the fact that millions self-identify as such. Ho hum.
Cis: redundant pejorative to describe anyone who is not GNC — that is, who is a man or a woman. Do not use this word, it is offensive.
Transvestite homosexual (gay) a homosexual male who cross-dresses to attract partners and socialise. Typically his cross-dressing is only part-time and he probably does not take hormones. However in the appropriate cultures, this person might become transsexual, especially if ‘passable’ as a woman.
Masochistic Emasculation Fetish (MEF).
This is implicated in autogynephilia. It was not described as such by Blanchard, but its presence is consistent with observation. AGP subjects may loathe their own masculinity (Moser, Blanchard) to the point that they may seek GRS to remove their external male genitalia. This is consistent with MEF. It is possible that MEF is identical to ‘gender dysphoria’, at least in males.
A putative diagnosis of transsexualism, it purports to describe a sense of ‘anxiety and discomfort’ with one’s sex-conforming gender expression. This has never been actually measured in any meaningful way.
Non-existent. This is a canard that suggests that one’s ‘sense of gender’ is innate, internal and immutable. It is perhaps best described as ‘feeling like a woman’ for a transwoman. However, as Mike Bailey pointed out, how would a middle-aged man know what it was like to ‘feel like a woman’? Gender proceeds from sexuality, not airy-fairy notions of ‘identity.’
The clothes and mannerisms associated with a particular gender, either masculine or feminine. Gender by any other name.
Sexual Orientation and Gender Expression and Identity (SOGIE)
An entirely specious attempt to suggest that sexual orientation (‘whom one wishes to go to bed with’) and gender (‘whom one wishes to go to bed as’) are divorced. They are not. This is a meaningless by-product of hidebound USican attitudes towards sex. It came about because gay activists wished to separate the desire to be penetrated from the fact that this is a feminine sexual desire and has since spread. It’s nonsense. Gender and sexuality are two sides of the same coin.
Perhaps the most complex of all, this condition causes a man to be sexually aroused by the ‘thought or image of himself as a woman’. This is a form of paraphilia or sexual fetish. It comes in a plethora of forms. Central to all, however, is the sexualised attraction to ‘being a woman’, which, in this matter, means ‘being emasculated’. This is an invasive, self-propagating condition that is usually (but not always) fuelled by masturbation.
In the Western AGP profile, the subject may continue to live as a man, with regular ‘dressing’ masturbation sessions. Typically he will have a wardrobe of women’s clothing for this. He may indulge his fetish with other like-minded individuals at masturbatory ‘dressing parties’. In severe cases, a secondary, pseudo-feminine personality is created which after years — possibly decades — can completely overwhelm the host personality and destroy it. This is when these men usually decide to ‘transition’.
These men retain a masculine attraction to women and may attempt to insist to their wives that they are now ‘lesbians’. They predate on women and are particularly dangerous for transsexuals, to whom they may appear as ‘mentors’. However, the slightest deviation from the AGP’s instructions will be met with devastating opposition.
Transvestite autogynephilia, in which the subject appears in women’s clothing part or full time, was first described by Ray Blanchard in the 1980s and this work remains the basis of the science. Blanchard’s sample was, on average, middle aged, not at all feminine (rather the opposite) usually married, had children, was attracted to women principally and had no history of homosexual attraction or of GNC in childhood. All, however, had some history of dressing up in women’s clothes to masturbate.
Other AGP Profiles
Blanchard’s AGP profile, however, is not the only one. There appear to be at least two variants. In Asia, while the Western Profile does appear, it is relatively rare; another form is much more common. This differs from the Western profile in that: the age of appearance is much lower; subjects typically self-medicate with hormones (usually contraceptives) from their teens; as a result of this they may be strikingly beautiful, tall, lithe women very much of the ‘supermodel’ look; and they are much more likely to be androphilic (attracted to men) than the Western profile.
It is not clear whether this profile is completely distinct from the Blanchard or is simply exhibiting cultural influences, notably the attraction to men. If this is a cultural influence, then that either means that homosexuality can be learned, or it is an innate part of masculinity that most men suppress. Autogynephiles raise interesting questions about our assumptions about human sexuality.
AGPs are also appearing in Western Snowflake Culture. Here they look very much like a younger version of Blanchard’s model. They are not feminine, indeed are masculine, are attracted to women and share the other characteristics of the Blanchard profile. They seem to be appearing in their early 20s, which much younger than the classic Blanchard.
Here, the emasculation fetish that is a central part of AGP is satisfied in ways other than wearing women’s clothing. It may simply come from being called by feminine pronouns or even one of an array of invented ones; by changing one’s name and other people using it; by sexual penetration, or by other means.
It has been noted for decades that a similar dichotomy exists amongst homosexual men to that amongst transwomen. Some are small, slight, pretty and extremely feminine and others are large, normal weight, and not feminine, rather masculine. The existence of non-transvestite autogynephilia suggests that many if not all of these men might be autogynephiles getting their emasculation fetish satisfied through being anally penetrated.
We already know that a proportion of transvestite autogynephiles exhibit ‘pseudo-bisexualism’ in which they seek to be penetrated by men to complete their emasculation fetish. Is it possible that ‘masculine’ gays are just non-trans autogynephiles doing the same thing? It would certainly explain a lot about gay culture in the West if this were the case.
Autogynephilia is the most complex and fascinating expression of GNC. Unfortunately, typical Western profile AGPs are arrogant, offensive, bullying and obnoxious. Bruce ‘Caitlyn’ Jenner would be an example.
There is a huge number of other ‘gender’ types that have been invented in recent years, but these are all fake. The plethora of ‘genders’ adopted by Snowflake Culture are actually rather moods and social roles than anything that might fairly be described as ‘gender’.
This is predictable if we apply the gender breakdown developed by Prof Don Kulick (an actual scientist) as part of his studies in Brazil. He classified gender in the culture he was observing as being ‘men’ and ‘not-men’ (rather than men and women.) I have observed the same dichotomy in Asia.
If we apply this model to Snowflake Culture we find that it is so emasculated as to only consist of persons conforming to the ‘not-men’ categorisation. All of the ‘men’ — powerful alpha-males — have been excluded or emasculated.
Within Snowflake Culture then, we see just one gender group, ‘not-men’. This group shows huge variation and this is the root cause of the Snowflake ‘gender rainbow’. However they are actually all expressions of not-men gender.
Within Snowflake culture, the highest status is afforded to lesbian women, especially blacks and other ethnic minorities. In order to fill the gap left by the banished ‘men’ group, some of these women ‘become’ men for social reasons. This puts them at the top of the pecking order. At the same time, real males emasculate themselves to the point of appearing to be women (almost). This is partly in order to gain status which they are disbarred, as men, from gaining, and partly in order to appear to be suitable sexual partners for the high-status lesbian ‘transmen’ ruling the group. Youtuber Justin ‘Riley’ Dennis would be a grand example.
I am deeply indebted to the riotously funny http://genderfluidsupport.tumblr.com/gender/ blog for the following ‘Master Gender List’. Its terminal stupidity is perhaps best revealed by the fact that the only two genders that actually do exist, masculine and feminine, appear nowhere on it! The chuckleheads who produced this say:
‘Feel free to mix and match your own prefixes and suffixes to create the identity that best describes you.’
In other words, this nonsense has nothing to do with observable reality at all; it’s just about ‘d feelz’. Perhaps the most priceless piece of undiluted idiocy on this list is the following:
Anongender: a gender that is unknown to both yourself and others
So I’m wondering how one can ‘identify’ as a gender that nobody, including yourself, can identify?
And please, if you meet any adult who ‘identifies as’ a child or ‘a member of another species’ do find a shovel and hit it, hard.
(I am assured that this nonsense is not a hoax or a spoof, much though I wish it were; however, if anyone has evidence that it is, please do contact me.
