At the Trans March in San Francisco a couple of evenings ago lesbians carrying signs were knocked to the ground and beaten by Trans marchers. READ ABOUT IT HERE
The organizers of the SF Dyke March felt the need to declare their allegiance to the Trans marchers by condemning the dykes who were expressing their free speech rights.
Of course we know that expressing any opinion that isn't the party line is going to get you condemned by those you thought were your tribe members. Yeah, no more. You're not in the tribe if you don't protect the rights of Trans 'artists' to have an exhibition in the SF library of baseball bats wrapped in barbed wire designed to attack feminists.

Yes, you'll find that once you break through the fabric of 'politically correct' discourse to arrive at an independent point of view you'll be rejected and stigmatized by your tribe, as we have been. It doesn't matter, actually, where you draw the line, where you say, 'hey the emperor has no clothes!'...when you refuse to march to the party line you will find yourself on the outside.
Frankly I expected more dykes / queers to be courageous about being on the outside because we've already chosen to step out from the dominant culture, and that takes courage. What I hadn't expected is that so-called queer culture could be twisted to the point where lesbians would be reviled as 'the man.' I refuse the cis label.
Look, the goal is much wider than what we are experiencing in this situation. The goal is something called 'third order change' which destroys the existing social structure and replaces it entirely. We thought we were doing this ourselves as dykes but in fact we were just a midpoint in the continuum, and the ultimate is to turn everything completely upside down. Think Mao's Cultural Revolution and that will give you the sense of what is happening. These people, the Trans antifa mafia are the Red Guards of the current ideology.
This outrageous 'exhibit' of woman-hating viciousness is symptomatic of a larger ideology. The fact that the organizers of the SF Dyke March leapt to further attack lesbians who were expressing their opinion and were beaten for it is an example of 'third order change.' Whether you agree with the lesbians who were attacked or not is irrelevant. The point is that we, as lesbians, are being made into 'the other,' the racist, anti-X, hateful other who must be opposed and fought rather than debated and heard.
Will we be too terrified to state that there is an erasure of lesbians in the rush to declare that male-identified girls are being 'transitioned' by an ideologically driven social structure? That there may be something wrong with an anger-driven group of former men who believe that they can be abusive and aggressively hateful and call that art? Are we so certain that discussion and debate can cause mental injury and should be shut down without a chance at being examined? Why do we accept that universities should block dissent instead of encouraging it? Who is going to craft your new mindset? Is this something you agree to accept?
Go ahead and talk about this. Do it openly. Have the guts to argue. Enjoy yourself by opening your mind and listening to others. Let's have a debate. Here and now. I dare you.
