every person should be safe in the public square

but trans rights are rolling back the gains and protections women have achieved and the law needs to balance that

Words and Meanings

Individuals do not get to put aside common understanding of words, and to expand the meaning of a word to include opposite is to end the meaning of words.

Which words are lived experience and have meaning to those to whom the words apply; and feeling like words apply to you, is not the same as when the words actually do.

men with a diagnosis do not get to self identify as women in crisis spaces nor lesbian social/sexual spaces.

that transwomen are in danger from heterosexual men does not alter that women, heterosexual, bisexual, pansexual, non binary and lesbians are not in lesser and have barriers to services and safety that must not be compromised by low/no barrier access to safe crisis space; and no boundaries respected for social/sexualized lesbian spaces – venues and cyber

https://www.nbcnews.com/feature/nbc-out/pro-lesbian-or-trans-exclusionary-old-animosities-boil-public-view-n958456‘Pro-lesbian’ or ‘trans-exclusionary’? Old animosities boil into public viewA transgender-exclusionary radical feminist, or TERF, is a controversial term used to describe feminists whose views about gender are seen as anti-trans.www.nbcnews.com

people who express their sexuality differ than those who do not identify how they are perceived by others

who only owe civility – and having to cater to in order to not have a person become distressed and name call is not receiving civility in return,

Anyone who can not accept a no to a date request is demonstrating what an abusive relationship they offer.

Gaslighting and rape culture in the case of transwomen and lesbians

https://www.glaad.org/how-sexual-orientation-different-gender-identityHow is sexual orientation different from gender identity? | GLAADWe use the acronym LGBT to describe the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community. The first three letters (LGB) refer to sexual orientation. The ‘T’ refers to issues of gender identity.Gender identity is your own, internal, personal sense of being a man or a woman (or as someone outside of that gender binary).Sexual orientation describes a person’s enduring physical,www.glaad.org

feelings are not facts and no one is required to ignore their own senses

nor put aside what words mean and own self

the word transphobia is how heterosexual men explain why they assaulted, raped and murdered a transwomen

Lesbians, Gay men, bisexuals and heterosexuals who decline dates with transpeople are disinterested and not attracted to – and that is different from phobic.

Lesbians are not the ones assaulting, raping and murdering transwomen

Being told we do not have an individual or demographic no to transwomen is rape culture and it is the lesbians who are at risk, and being denied the boundaries lesbians have a right to.

https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2014/08/04/woman-2The Dispute Between Radical Feminism and Transgenderism | The New YorkerMichelle Goldberg on the dispute over what it means to be a woman. The transgender-rights movement has forced a rethinking of what sex and gender mean, and radical feminists now find themselves shunned as reactionaries on the wrong side of a sexual-rights issue.www.newyorker.com

Transwomen use the pornography phrase “cotton ceiling” to complain about lesbians, fetishing underwear and seeking validation for a penis to be called a vagina, by the vagina experts: lesbians – when we recognize trans human rights

which human rights are for public access and equality under law

human rights do not apply to dating

feelings are not facts and no one is required to ignore their own senses

nor put aside what words mean and own self

the word transphobia is how heterosexual men explain why they assaulted, raped and murdered a transwomen

transwomen claiming gential phobia on the part of lesbians, confirms that lesbians have a reason to be concerned about male gentials

Heterosexual men claim all women are bisexual, and then to be lesbians

do we now accept what heterosexual men seeking penis gratification by sexually objectifying women, and lesbians in particular – as the zero summest of the dating domination and negotiation of date rape to sexual harassment?

Unwelcome and unwanted sexual attention is harassment,

Lesbians, Gay men, bisexuals and heterosexuals who decline dates with transpeople are disinterested and not attracted to – and that is different from phobic.

No one has to identify as who they do not date – there are pansexual people who are creating a needless value judgement with LGB owing to everyone dates a person, whom they select for the sex they seek.

Lesbians are not the ones assaulting, raping and murdering transwomen

Being told we do not have an individual or demographic no to transwomen is rape culture and it is the lesbians who are at risk, and being denied the boundaries lesbians have a right to.

It is not phobic to end a relationship nor phobic to decline to start one

All Adults should be assumed to know who they are and are not attracted to, and persons who pester and debate a no; need to accept a no and not find others to shame those you seek to date – especially when also validation seeking

Each person defines their own self and do not get to decide whether one is in someone else’s dating option, especially when in the case of lesbians when transwomen are clothes from heterosexual, and lesbians are the at risk of abuse in relationship and rape culture.

Men may not opt out of the social oppression any more than women may opt out of the harm of it, self identifying does not change ones balance of probability on the who is the perp and who is the victim of sexual violence or unwanted sexual attention.

demographics are forms by those sharing character tics.

Lesbian includes physical characteristics be shared

and as the only women centric women

men do not get to self identify into the lesbian demographic

and other demographics do not get to vote into the lesbian demographic

and the lesbians who are seeking to not be name called

or are unaware of the damage done to women’s crisis and safe spaces

or the vulnerability of women in prisons

the more vulnerable women

and the young women teens and youth

role models are needed for all women

positive, women affirming

Lesbians, not gay women, not queer women

Lesbian

the word has meaning

woman defined, not to be co-opted or defined by men with a diagnosis

demographic non inclusion of transwomen in lesbian culture for common sense reasons: clothes from heterosexuality

not being recognized as a lesbian is a demonstration of not being a lesbian

not bigotry

incels complaint and name call and are now murdering people in public because they are not persons who can attract potential dates and blame others and society.

dating is sex selection, and no one has to date anyone who does not appeal to them

and anyone who tries to redefine common meaning words, name calls and cannot accept a no, is not a mature person to be in a relationship with,

it is 2021 and of all the issues I would like to be writing and thinking about, who transwomen and transmen are dating is only a concern for that dating pool

as a lesbian, the divide of LGB and LGBT – and I use the Canada LGBTQ2

only means that transwomen have created a toxic environment where the heterosexuals who wish to genocide us if they can, after legally oppressing us, often in religious nations, have a better chance of success because divided we waste resources infighting, and that serves our collective oppressors

I would rather focus on the environment than human rights

Yeah it’s going to get worse before it gets better, I fear

even if no one took a plane, boat or vehicle ever again starting today, and shut down polluting industry we are too late, we can’t stop agriculture or our own sewage.. every other species smart enough to not overbreed it’s environmental niche and humans left ourselves no where to go

we have 5 years before the atmosphere is too hot to breath globally.

from the article:

Budapest/Berlin — A top aide to Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban called into question Germany’s democratic standards on Thursday after a German football club sacked a Hungarian coach for expressing anti-immigrant and anti-LGBT views.

“Expressing your opinion cannot be punished under the rule of law,” Orban’s chief of staff Gergely Gulyas told a press briefing. “I think this is outrageous. It is foremost Germany that has to answer whether it still upholds the rule of law.”

It was President George H Bush or Bush The Elder that began the “family values” code

and given The Duggar family revealing incest is a Christian norm….

the republicans under Lincoln ended slavery, but after Reagan

it was the party of anti-women’s reproductive rights and personal sovereignty

the party of anti_LGBTQ2 Human RIghts

the party of bigotry along religion and ethnicity lines, often one and the same as most religions one must be born to, and not choose

so for a country founded on no more kings and begun by Robber Barrons to restart the nobility rank race…..

freedom from religion was the pursuit of happiness

no religion determining government nor being forced on anyone
