Again, I have no desire to engage in a war with Suzan Cooke. In her latest post she does admit what a number of people have known all along. The problem is not those who identify as HBS or Classic Transsexuals, but is the ones who identify as transgender and who insist that everyone else must as well.
Beyond that, Cooke still shows behavior that would make any gender fascist quite proud. She still assumes that she knows who I am, and attempts to use that information in a desperate attempt to discredit me. When I started this blog, I was well aware of how the transgender crowd operates, and I have chosen to remain anonymous. Several people assume that I am a certain person, when they really have no idea who I am. This is typical of the TG mentality. They cannot stand not being able to control people.
Cooke is a classic example of the sort of mentality I was referring to in my post on "club words." For Cooke, her club of choice is religious faith. I mean, we all get it. Cooke is an atheist, and she hates Christians. She also continues to spout the classic TG rhetoric that those who decline to to compromise with the gender fascists are elitist or bullies. Quite silly, really, but such is the mindset of some.
Cooke wants something that is simply not acceptable to the gender fascists...for them to acknowledge that transsexuals are not part of the transgender umbrella. But Cooke also wants something that is unacceptable to many who are "classic transsexuals," "true transsexuals," or "HBS." That is to compromise and to join the LGBT alphabet soup. Again, I have friends who are gay, lesbian, bisexual, and yes, even in a few cases transgender identified. But I have no desire to be identified as part of the LGBT. I consider myself a straight ally.
I support rights legislation for lesbians, gays, and bisexuals. I support gay marriage. I don't believe people should be denied jobs for reasons that have nothing to do with their job performance. But I do have many reservations about the more radical demands of transgender extremists. I don't buy into the deconstruction of gender. I do not accept that one can change their sex simply by making a choice. And I see no reason to compromise with those who do.
And if Cooke thinks that makes one a "Christo-Facist," well that is Cooke's right. At least it means I am not a gender fascist.
