When the rabid Left runs out of straight White cis-gendered males to blame, they will turn on themselves. Apparently, regardless of whether they consider a person who thinks they are the opposite sex to be the gender concomitant with their sex or the gender contrary to it, non-transgendered Leftists aren’t exactly praising them.
Robert Stacy McCain has pointed out repeatedly how transgendered/transexual individuals are at odds with many radical feminists (radfem). The former claim to be oppressed because of their “trans-ness” and also oppressed for being “women” (when they are actually a dude). The later declare that the so-called “women” have, or were born with, a p*nis,1 and are thus still privileged. This leads to the “stopped clock” situation where the radical feminists (of PIV = Rape infamy) are actually making sense.
Of course, being accepted as being the opposite gender of what you are isn’t exactly a paragon of wonderfulness either. Students at the all female Wellesley College rejected a woman who believed she was a man (i.e. a “Transgendered Man”)2 because “he” was a “White male”:
“Timothy, a white transgender student, was fully accepted by his her self-chosen male title and had found fellow students amenable to calling him her by male pronouns. But then Timothy made a fateful decision to run for student council for the position of multicultural affairs coordinator, or ‘MAC.’
“Timothy discovered that a Facebook campaign was launched calling on students to abstain from voting. If enough students refused to vote for Timothy–the only one on the ballot for the position–he she would be disqualified for the position by failing to get the minimum number of students to vote for him her.
“‘It wasn’t about Timothy,’ the student behind the Abstain campaign told the paper. ‘I thought he’d do a perfectly fine job, but it just felt inappropriate to have a white man there. It’s not just about that position either. Having men in elected leadership positions undermines the idea of this being a place where women are the leaders.’
“So, despite the long-time claims of the women’s college that the transgendered are fully accepted, they really don’t want them in leadership because they identify as men. And, being white, Timothy had two strikes against him.”
So, one is condemned for either being a man, or simply declaring oneself to be so. Either which way, maleness is involved or invoked. And “maleness” as we all know, is a moral sin in the eyes of the Left.
