Literary Cunning Linguists

from the article, – a demonstration of bias:

“Concern trolls like DiManno act as if people pushing for gender inclusivity in language are trying to eradicate women rather than just expand society’s conception of trans women, non-binary women, and other people with vaginas. Absolutely no one has told anyone the word “woman” has been banned. “

The above paragraph actually shows the pattern of women being displaced in language by starting with transwomen shifting through nonbinary as the gender paradigm shift without a diagnosis, to person with a vagina – which is the meaning of woman, given person was defined and understood as male, rather than person with a penis – in the same way that neither man or woman has had to specify heterosexual.

From the quote: “expanding the concept of transwomen” by altering the words used to describe women is not equality, but removal of women.

“chest feeder “and “pregnant person” are neutering’s not neutralizing language, which English, as all languages are heteromale centric.

Further fixating on function is to diminish the whole person, the human, the sum of parts and demographics and other labels; and it is whole persons, not ideas nor parts that have rights.

The article is part of the constant dismissal of anyone who raises a concern and the concern mocked – is part of the gaslighting, minimizing and demeaning the impact of the dissolving of language, which depends on a shared common understood meaning.

That women are not being allowed to say no should be a concern. that is to be able to say no to the language change for words and phrases to identify, to be able to say no to an academic idea without career damaging consequences, to be able to say no without being name called or debated or shunned for saying no.

The words relating to women are being banned and the meaning of any word is ended with the opposite is included within the word’s meaning: and interesting how it is the concept of transwomen and “non binary women and other people with vaginas” when non binary does not alter biology. and “persons with vaginas” are being used to describe women, when the word woman already means that without being biologically blunt.

every time a woman speaks woman words, trans women claim they are being excluded… women are speaking about ourselves, our bodies and our experiences… women are being silenced. at every level women have achieved, with disproportionate harm to women across ethnicity, disability, immigration and poverty status, who have less access to nonprofit services, and rape/battered shelters owing to altering the meaning of “woman” by including men in the meaning – rather than addressing the male violence across the spectrum of males from hetero to homo, bisexual and trans/non-binary

with transwomen’s prioritization disproportionate to transmen, and only lesbians being burderned with a slur.

those opposed to marriage said same sex to conjure images of gay anal sex, while those for used same gender to reduce the sexual stigma and to have a phrase that could be used by gay men and lesbians – and note the word lesbian includes both gender and sexuality in one word. Marriage equality retained marriage as between two people and it did not alter heterosexual marriage in any way.

Whereas transgender is claiming that the characteristics of gay and lesbian are bigotry, when those are the characteristics that heterosexuals oppressed us, to this very genocidal world reality in 2021 – and are in fact opposed to language to describe women that accurately describes women because these words and the observable reality are what is commonly understood, because anyone can observe and perceive it.

While the claims of transgender identity theory, do not explain, are not testable and doctors do not assign, only observe and measure; an any academic idea that cannot be questioned, may be dismissed without consideration. the harm to academia and the public’s deeming university to be elitist and unrelated to the real world, is not helped by the over protection of ideas that cannot be academically defended if not questioned.

Nor real world applied owing to the unintended consequences of the loss of women’s rights protections, nonprofits that provide crisis services to women and are not for the public, such as Vancouver Rape Relief, but a safe place from the public; across professions, and very particularly lesbian subculture – from the Michigan Womyn’s music festival to lesbians social spaces where those who are clothes from heterosexual do not belong and the phrase “cotton ceiling” which was lesbian panties and now being rolled back to transwomen’s panties, which is the incel language of complaining about not having sexual access, which is not subject to human rights, but individual sexual selection.

Further, the loss of women’s speech, expression from words to careers to do so from; and the failure to hold heterosexual men to account for the assault, rape and murder rates across not only trans – where the word transphobia is the at court defense word – and gay men – where the word homophobia is also a at court defense word – and it is not heterosexual men who are being held to account – but rather lesbians being singled out for name calling and exclusion for not dating transwomen.

so dear transwomen: since women’s words do not resonate, I quote what heterosexual men have been saying to all women for decades: feelings are not facts.

1934 – Katherine “Kate” Murray Millett (Sept. 14, 1934- September 5, 2017) is born. Kate was in her mid-30s and a generally unknown sculptor when her doctoral dissertation at Columbia University, “Sexual Politics,” was published by Doubleday and Co. Her core premise was that the relationship between the sexes is political, with the definition of politics including, as she once said, “arrangements whereby one group of persons is controlled by another.” After teaching briefly at the University of North Carolina, she pursued her art career in Japan and then New York, where she took a job at Barnard College teaching English literature. In 1965 she married the Japanese sculptor Fumio Yoshimura, but she rejected many traditional ideas of marriage and eventually came out as a lesbian. Her autobiographical work Flying, published in 1974, told of the dizzying fame “Sexual Politics” had brought and her reaction to it. Sita, in 1977, dealt with her sexuality. She is survived by her spouse Sophie Keir.

LGBTQ2 for September 12


Before the 1900s to The Suffragettes

1857, UK – The word gay, which appears in a pictured cartoon in Punch magazine, is used to refer to prostitution. It arrived in English during the 12th century from Old French gai, most likely deriving ultimately from a Germanicsource. In English, the word’s primary meaning was “joyful”, “carefree”, “bright” and “showy”, and the word was very commonly used with this meaning in speech and literature. For example, the optimistic 1890s are still often referred to as the Gay Nineties. The title of the 1938 French ballet Gaîté Parisienne (“Parisian Gaiety”), which became the 1941 Warner Brothers movie, The Gay Parisian,also illustrates this connotation. It was apparently not until the 20th century that the word was used to mean specifically “homosexual,” although it had earlier acquired sexual connotations.The word may have started to acquire associations of immorality as early as the 14th century, but had certainly acquired them by the 17th. By the late 17th century it had acquired the specific meaning of “addicted to pleasures and dissipations”,an extension of its primary meaning of “carefree” implying “uninhibited by moral constraints”. A gay woman was a prostitute, a gay man a womanizer, and a gay house a brothel.The use of gay to mean “homosexual” was often an extension of its application to prostitution: a gay boy was a young man or boy serving male clients.Similarly, a gay cat was a young male apprenticed to an older hobo, commonly exchanging sex and other services for protection and tutelage.The application to homosexuality was also an extension of the word’s sexualized connotation of “carefree and uninhibited”, which implied a willingness to disregard conventional or respectable sexual mores. Such usage, documented as early as the 1920s, was likely present before the 20th century,although it was initially more commonly used to imply heterosexually unconstrained lifestyles, as in the once-common phrase “gay Lothario.” A passage from Gertrude Stein‘s Miss Furr & Miss Skeene (1922) is possibly the first traceable published use of the word to refer to a homosexual relationship. Bringing Up Baby (1938) was the first film to use the word gay in apparent reference to homosexuality. By the mid-20th century, gay was well established in reference to hedonistic and uninhibited lifestylesand its antonym straight, which had long had connotations of seriousness, respectability, and conventionality, had now acquired specific connotations of heterosexuality.In the case of gay, other connotations of frivolousness and showiness in dress (“gay apparel”) led to association with camp and effeminacy. This association no doubt helped the gradual narrowing in scope of the term towards its current dominant meaning, which was at first confined to subcultures. Gay was the preferred term since other terms, such as queer, were felt to be derogatory. Homosexual is perceived as excessively clinical, since the sexual orientation now commonly referred to as “homosexuality” was at that time a mental illness diagnosis in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM). The sixties marked the transition in the predominant meaning of the word gayfrom that of “carefree” to the current “homosexual”.

1889 – Film star Maurice Chevalier (September 12, 1888 – January 1, 1972) is born in Paris. He was a French actorcabaret singer and entertainer. His trademark attire was a boater hat, which he always wore on stage with a tuxedo. He was in a long-term relationship with his valet, Felix Paquet.

2017 – Edie Windsor (June 20, 1929 – September 12, 2017) dies. She was an LGBT rightsactivist and a former technology manager at IBM. She was the lead plaintiff in the Supreme Court case United States v. Windsor, which successfully overturned Section 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act and was considered a landmark legal victory for the same-sex marriage movement in the United States. Windsor met Thea Spyer, a psychologist, in 1963 at Portofino, a restaurant in Greenwich Village. In 1967, Spyer asked Windsor to marry, although it was not yet legal anywhere in the United States. In 1977, Spyer was diagnosed with progressive multiple sclerosis. The disease caused a gradual, but ever-increasing paralysis. Windsor used her early retirement to become a full-time caregiver for Spyer. Windsor and Spyer entered a domestic partnership in New York City in 1993. Registering on the first available day, they were issued certificate number eighty. Spyer suffered a heart attack in 2002 and was diagnosed with aortic stenosis. In 2007, her doctors told her she had less than a year to live. New York had not yet legalized same-sex marriage, so the couple married in TorontoCanada on May 22, 2007, with Canada’s first openly gay judge, Justice Harvey Brownstonepresiding. An announcement of their wedding was published in the New York Times. Spyer died from complications related to her heart condition on February 5, 2009. On September 26, 2016, Windsor married Judith Kasen at New York City Hall. At the time of the wedding, Windsor was age 87 and Kasen was age 51. Her courage granted same-sex married couples federal recognition of our marriages and removed remaining state barriers to marriage equality. Edie led her fight with dignity and grace and those of us who are beneficiaries of her fight are forever touched by her and left with a little hole in our hearts. United States v. Windsor570 U.S. ___ (2013) (Docket No. 12-307), is a landmark civil rights case in which the United States Supreme Court held that restricting U.S. federal interpretation of “marriage” and “spouse” to apply only to opposite-sex unions, by Section 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), is unconstitutional under the Due Process Clauseof the Fifth Amendment. In the majority opinion, Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote: “The federal statute is invalid, for no legitimate purpose overcomes the purpose and effect to disparage and to injure those whom the State, by its marriage laws, sought to protect in personhood and dignity.”

What do you call….an(d) answer

What do you call a religion that has no theology, it’s based on logic, reason and science and promotes individual thinking and needs you to question everything, and it’s moral code is based on common sense of doing what’s right Without Blindly Following a law, rule, a creed or dogma, or a tradition, or a religious and or political ideology and no need to gather in a tax exempt building once a week to pass the basket and listening to a con artist speaker or preacher who only care how much money he or she could make from you or some naïve, gullible, uneducated sheep minded people still following a dark age book written by some con men to fool the fools who believe them without question but with great devotion?

Nina:

no idea. because atheist is the rejection of religion and nothing else.

Alex:

I call it: Non Delusional. 😁

Nina:


that is so good I did laugh out loud… that was brilliant Alex.

Alex

Thank you Nina ❤

Nina

you are kindly welcome I really needed that laugh.

we have to be alert this Canada election 2021 to the “conscious rights” that doctors are claiming to refuse abortion services – a new way to say religious rights or freedom of religion, when ideas do not have rights unless they are patentable… and that gives a person rights twice.. so we need to co-ordinate messages in our respective spheres of influence

because trans are trying the same thing and it is gaslighting to tell anyone to ignore their own perceptions and as a lesbian being called a terf while no one is paying attention to the fetish cotton ceiling or noticing the appalling terminology being used in the LGBT literature of front hole and back hole. as if women would describe our own bodies that very penis reference manner..

no one has to right to walk up to anyone and say you have to date me or you are bigot or start talking about genitals, which is the core of the trans dating debate.. which at the end of the planet, when children are soldiers and mass disasters.. who dates transgender is not in the top 1000 concerns. and as a lesbian on the concern about dating, I am very concerned lesbians and even heterosexual men are being told they do not have a no… finally something lesbians and straight men do have in common, but homophobia and transphobia are the hetero men’s words to make their having assaulted, raped and murdered reasonable. whereas, for lesbians, saying no individually is exhausting so it needs to be said as a demographic.

that religion and transgender theory may not be questioned, means they may be dismissed without debate.

that is not how reality, nor academia works

and co-opting intersectionality of ethnicity for genitals

and saying diversity while defining words to include the opposite

is to end the meaning of words, not expand them

and no person is obligated to ignore their own senses and knowledge on behalf of another, especially a stranger with no positive reason to be self identifying into a demographic defined most understandably to any person as not involving a penis, regardless of how the person refers to or names it.

Lesbians are not nonmen who are attracted to other non men

nor are lesbians heterosexual men in women’s bodies

and doctors can only observe and record what is measureable

doctors do not assign, unless there has been some question of what was observed or an accidental mutilation and cover up, as in documented cases of doctors using patients to make names for the doctors to name things

if a person lives in a nation where human rights, which include responsibility

then no one has any right to redefine words or call you named and accuse you of bigtory for not dating a person who does not appeal to you

any more than you will have a bad time after death if you do not obey a religious concept of how to behave depending on your gender

which, gender is your biologicial sex, owing to be homo sapiens, a sexually reproducing species

with bisexuals enjoying both

gay men and lesbians enjoying one

and persons who are trans, have pansexuals and fetishizers

while all women

from hetero to bisexual to pansexual and especially lesbians

have male fetishizers, and cotton ceiling is the confession of denying lesbians human rights, including forming a demographic on shared characteristics

which those clothes from heterosexual from a lesbian perspective, do not.

as individuals and as a demographic, being an ally means respecting boundaries where human rights gets to define them: no to a date

and responding to no with name calling, debates and redefining words

accusations of bigotry

is more than a red flag, and reveals the exact relationship being demanded

and bizarrely supported by adults who should know better

especially in a kink aware community, even if not kinky.

if there is not a not to a date, then there is not a no to sex

and consent requires informed and if there is no

no to a date nor to sex, then there is no safeword

which, to religion, atheist is

and to keep oneself who is at rape risk, no to a date is supposed to be safe to say

otherwise, no women has rights to self determination

LGBTQ2 for August 22

1662, Spain – A leader of the Mexican Inquisition sent a letter to his supervisors in Spain complaining that the severe punishments given to sodomites had been ineffective. He noted that over 100 had been indicted, that a large number of the offenders were clergy, and that torture had been used to extract confessions.

1894, Denmark – Willem Arondeus (August 22, 1894 – July 1, 1943) is born. He was a Dutch artist and author, who joined the Dutch anti-Nazi resistance movement during World War II. He participated in the bombing of the Amsterdam public records office to hinder the Nazi German effort to identify Dutch Jews. Arondeus was caught and executed soon after his arrest. He was openly gay before the war and defiantly asserted his sexuality before his execution. In his last message before his execution, Arondeus, who had lived openly as a gay man before the war, asked his lawyer to “Let it be known that homosexuals are not cowards!”

1895, Hungary – László Ede Almásy de Zsadány et Törökszentmiklós (August 22, – March 22, 1951) is born. He was a Hungarian aristocratdesert exploreraviatorscout leader and sportsman who served as the basis for the protagonist in both Michael Ondaatje‘s novel The English Patient (1992) and the movie adaptation of the same name (1996). Letters discovered in 2010 in Germany written by Almásy prove that, unlike the fictionalized character of the film, he was in fact gay. His lover was a young soldier named Hans Entholt, who was an officer in the Wehrmacht and who was killed by stepping on a landmine. A staff member of the Heinrich Barth Institute for African Studies where the letters are located, also confirmed that “Egyptian princes were among Almásy’s lovers.” The letters confirmed that Almásy died from amoebic dysentery in 1951.

1914, France – Violette Morris (April 18, 1893 – April 26, 1944), marries a man on this day. She won two gold and one silver medals at the Women’s World Games in 1921–1922. Starting in 1936 she worked with the Gestapo during World War II. She was killed in 1944 in a Resistance-led ambush as a traitor to the French state. Morris was a gifted athlete, becoming the first French woman to excel at shot put and discus, and playing on two separate women’s football teams. She played for Fémina Sports from 1917 until 1919, and for Olympique de Paris from 1920 to 1926. Both teams were based in Paris. She also played on the French women’s national team. She was refused license renewal by the Fédération Française sportive Féminine (FFSF – French Women’s Athletic Federation) amid complaints of her bisexual lifestyle and was therefore barred from participating in the 1928 Summer Olympics. The agency cited her lack of morals, especially in light of the fact that one of her lovers, Raoul Paoli, made public her bisexuality. Paoli had recently left Morris after she had initially decided to undergo an elective mastectomy in order to fit into racing cars more easily. At the end of December 1935, Morris was recruited by the Sicherheitsdienst(Security Service), a wing of the infamous SS of Nazi Germany. She was invited, with honor, to attend the 1936 Summer Olympics in Berlin at the personal behest of Adolf Hitler. She was killed along a country road by members of a French resistance group on 26 April 1944, at the age of 51, while out driving with friends who were also collaborators.

1965 – David Peter Reimer is born (August 22, 1965 – May 4, 2004). He was a Canadian man born biologically male but  who was reassigned as female by Dr. John Money after his penis was destroyed in infancy by a botched circumcision. He committed suicide in 2004. In 955, Money (1921-2006), a sexologist and psychologist, introduced the concept of ‘gender role’ into the transsexual debate. Money later was heavily criticized over Reimer’s suicide. David Reimer, an identical twin, was mutilated at 8-months old in a botched circumcision and then surgically reassigned by Money and raised as a girl. But he never felt female on the inside (even though his parents followed Money’s advice and hid the fact of his birth sex from him), despite Money’s claims to the contrary. His life, especially at school, was sheer hell because others never really perceived him to be a girl either, despite his girl drag. By age 16, Reimer underwent a second reassignment at his own insistence so that he could live as the boy he knew himself to be. In the meantime, however, Money had convinced the medical establishment and the lay public, despite growing evidence to the contrary in his “girl” twin, that babies could be arbitrarily assigned a gender with no psychological consequences. Today, still, five children a day are surgically “corrected” at birth because of this one “case study” and Money’s defense of his handling of David’s life. With the help of Drs. Milton Diamond and H.K. Sigmundson, Reimer would finally tell the medical establishment the truth about his life in 1997 in the Archives of Adolescent and Pediatric Medicine, [“Sex reassignment at birth. Long-term review and clinical implications” Arch Pediatr Adolesc Med, Mar 1997; 151: 298 – 304.], challenging the firmly established medical and popular myth that gender was mostly a function of nurture rather than nature. Later that year, Reimer would work with author John Colapinto to tell his story to the lay public, first under a pseudonym, in Rolling Stone

Sex and Stigma: stop slurring, negging and name calling

all sexualities’ are both fetishized and face disinterest

everyone needs to take a breath step back,

learn to accept a no, learn to say no

and mostly, learn to stop naming calling those not interested

not every sexuality is attracted to all others

and there are sexualities that are specific to biological gender

https://www.redbrick.me/why-is-bisexuality-still-so-stigmatized/Why is Bisexuality Still So Stigmatized? | Redbrick CommentComment Editor Phoebe Snedker discusses biphobia and misconceptions about the sexual orientation, arguing that the countless stereotypes have a significant impact on bisexual people and their relationships with others.www.redbrick.me

it is not biphobic nor transphobic to say no to a date.

it is homophobic and transphobic to claim it was reasonable to assault, rape and murder as heterosexual men do in court

Every person is allowed to say no, I am not interested, not attracted.

that is the opposite of a fear, which is what a phobia is.

To not want the difference between hetero, gay or lesbian which is a sexuality mismatch with a bisexual person

and a gender mismatch for heteros, gay men, bisexual males and females and lesbians with persons who are transgender; as an the outward appearance and a mismatch with the gender one desires intimacy and sex with – the clothes away from heterosexual, but combined with the co-opting feminist intersectionality theory and pushing a penis into it; and especially the pornography term cotton ceiling, the confession of fetishization of lesbians, which frustration is not ours to resolve. Human rights recognition is all that is owed – dignity in the public square

and the loss of safe and crisis space for women – such as rape and battered women’s shelters for mostly heterosexual women, but also bisexual and lesbians – and the newly emerging pansexuals

seeking safety from partners who control the language, the financial and relationship decisions, and who cannot accept a no inside or before a relationship even.

and bisexuals having the usual of being thought to be more likely to cheat, while being sought by men for threesomes

each person identifies themself in terms of who they are and who they seek to date.

heterosexuals, gay men, bisexuals and lesbians are clear in that by the words.

the pansexual group is distinct from bisexual and is a word that includes attraction to transpersons

to each group their own label to advertise who a person is seeking to partner with, monogamously or polygamously with informed consent

and anyone who complains they are unable to get dates, need to work on their appeal, not cry fowl, bigotry, name call, complain about stereotypes or social standards, and generally demonstrate what an unappealing and inconsiderate person one is of other people’s human rights and identity

which, a demographic which forms a dating pool, such as lesbians or gay men, everyone is not secretly bisexual or trying to mimick heterosexuality

and a person feeling like they belong is demonstrated by those in the dating pool not including them

and while a person may have a diagnosis of trans, or be uncomfortable with one’s own body – it is not up to any other person to date you and ignore their own senses and own identity to be validator

Lesbians are vagina experts as gay men are penis experts

bisexuals enjoy both, but not a blend of both genders in one body

and bisexuals can date each other, as well as often heterosexuals, gay men and sometimes lesbians, which prior to marriage equality, bisexual women tended to have longer relationships with men, and bisexual men did too.

pansexuals date whoever; because everyone is dating another person.

no one enjoys being a fetish across demographics especially

nonbinary is an emerging demographic which has yet to form a clear recognition in and out of the demographic and males may not self identity out of being part of the gender oppressing women and the majority of the violence and sexual violence threats, any more than women may nonbinary self identify away from potential harm – and no women’s sexuality protects them the socialized and individual male gender caused violence.

Lesbians are not the caretakers and validators of the rest of the letters who are unclear on what lesbian means an apparently are okay with rape culture when no does not mean no anymore but a challenge to escalate to name calling and shaming.

Transpeople are not marginalized by gay and lesbian and bisexuals, but by their population statistics, with most seeking relationships with heterosexual men

Lesbians get to date other lesbians, without being shamed or excluded from the community which is ignoring lesbians have a right to say no to a date with anyone, but also as a demographic to say transwomen are not lesbians and are a category of incel – to be polite, for lesbians, transwomen are clothes from heterosexuality – and transphobia is the hetero justification for rape and murder – so the lesbian no to a date is very much the opposite; and in the case of a transwomen and a lesbian, it is the lesbian who is the rape vulnerable body; especially if denied a no to a date, which means not having a no to sex, which is denied informed consent, a no and by the logic extreme, even the safeword to end sex when the sex is unwanted or the scene includes something not consented to.

We helped Gay men with Aids after the heteros women did not help lesbians after they got reproductive and workplace rights

Lesbians are woman centric, and we have the choice and right to be

without being slurred, shamed or judged for who we do not date

any more than who we do

in fact, everyone needs to stop being bothered because most people are not dating you

and stop being bothered who is dating who

and stop harassing others who have nothing to do with your life nor you theirs
