This Week In Feminism: If You’re Not Bisexual, You’re Transphobic!

This is beyond the pale of anything I thought to be previously arguable.amanda

Daily Wire, by Amanda Prestigiacomo, March 22, 2017:

According to Everyday Feminism’s transgender feminist Riley J. Dennis, if you have a “genital preference” and are not sexually attracted to both a penis and vagina, you are transphobic; or, as he interchangeably uses, “cissexist.”

In a video posted last week, Riley argues that “genital preference” is actually a form of discrimination against trans people. For instance, if you “identity” as a straight male but have a preference for women without penises (because in Leftist Land some “women” have penises), you’re transphobic.

“Gender” preferences are allowed, so long as gender is defined by the Left’s Baskin-Robbins-esque Gender Chart, where feelings supersede biology.

“Some people are making the argument that it’s not cissexist at all to only be attracted to people with one kind of genitals,” complains a disagreeable Riley, before educating us all on the magical wonders of intersectional feminism.

“If you’re a woman who only likes women, go ahead, identify as a lesbian, but some women have penises, and if the fact that some lesbians might be attracted to those women offends you, it’s because you don’t think trans women are real women,” he says. (They’re not.)

“I’m trying to show that preferences for women with vaginas over women with penises might be partially informed by the influence of a cissexist society,” Riley continues.

Did you hear that? It’s society’s fault that a gay man isn’t into a biological woman with a vagina. And here I was told gays were “born this way.”

Riley then goes on to explain that preferences might be okay, maybe, sort of, as long as you’re not saying “you would never do something.” The example from the feminist? A man preferring tall girls: “Having a preference for tall girls is fine, but refusing to date anyone under 5’7″ is ridiculous.”

Essentially, unless you’re having sex with or would theoretically want to have sex with a transgender person, you’re transphobic.

It sure takes a lot to be “accepting” these days!

Watch the insanity, below:

  1. Feminism, like any “ism”, is tempted to take itself too seriously at times, some feminists do anyway and become arrogant. I think feminism is one of the most important forces unleashed in the 20th century and functioned as a “splinter” in our collective brain, opening up a “freedom” which is always a can of worms if there are not limits. Conservatives have the role of setting limits on this “Pandora’s box” phenomenon but at times their response itself needs to be more measured, i.e. to have “limits.” Tough times we are living in.

    1. Yeah that’s true. And we also need to meaningfully fight their rhetoric and offer an alternative model of development for women. Feminism doesn’t have all the answers and we need to point this out.

    2. Good point. “Having all the answers” is always seductive to the ego. ‘Tis so with me…thought it might often appear I do not realize this!!!

  2. It’s just getting confusing with all these new terms from “transgender”. Sorry to say that. I’m not discriminating, but in the US, the debate of a requirement of a “trans” bathroom by law, it’s too much for me. In Starbucks, McD’s, gas stations, many semi-to-public places, it’s all one restroom.

  3. I feel like the argument is far more nuanced then either you, or the vlogger, is suggesting. Transgender men and women struggle to find respect as the gender they identify as, and thus I believe that leads to these more concrete statements, even when the subject at hand is far more complicated then black and white. I personally believe that people can be gynophilic or phalophillic without being innately transphobic. However, I think that your reaction to finding out a person is transgender is telling to your overall opinion of transgender people.

    I also have to wonder if you feel the nature of this conversation changes if the transgender woman in question has undergone gender confirmation surgery, and thus no longer has a penis. If you found that person attractive, and then found out that they were transgender, would it be a problem? If so, you probably are transphobic, after all the concerns about being gynaphillic have been resolved.

    1. Yeah, it would bother me because I don’t find anything about a male or something that really is a male biologically attractive. I think there is a big difference here between transgender wanting to do their own thing and then now dictating that unless we are attracted to their kind that we have a phobia. Their tyranny is even extended to the gay people of whom they previously championed. So there’s a big difference in achieving freedom from interference and then demanding that we all adhere to their ideology.

    2. I guarantee you that you have looked at a woman on the street, thought she was attractive, and really she was a transgender woman. I guarantee it. Because most women late in thier transition are indistinguishable from people who were born females.

  4. I believe what the original vlogger was trying to say was that when you see someone walking down the street, and you find them attractive, it doesn’t have anything to do with what is (or is not) in their pants. Thus, to be immediately put off by a transgender person who you would have otherwise found attractive shows an innate dislike, or even possible phobia, towards transgender people.

    1. I’ve gotta disagree with you there, people like seeing attractive people in the street in part because they could anticipate what a potential future, more intimate encounter might entail. A transgender male dressed as a female entirely destroys that thought pattern. But this is just for me, it might not be the case for others, but the way this person was acting was in a bullying fashion, in demanding that we all at some point thought about considering sexual relations with a transgender, even if it’s not our desire.
