Radical Feminist Disconnect: Lessons in Entitled Inconsistencies

In writing extensively about STRAIGHTBIANS, particularly Radical Feminist STRAIGHTBIANS, there is an acute disconnect Mrs. Dirt and I see LITERALLY LITERALLY (did I say literally yet?) LITERALLY daily, which is the complete and utter disconnect between what Radical Feminist STRAIGHTBIANS claim is impossible for specific others versus what they claim is entirely possible for themselves.

Previously, we have pointed out the double-blind-opposite-sides-of-the-same-coiness between RadFems and Trans persons; today we will delve deeper into the first of many ways Radical Feminists display willful-obtuse-obstinate-Het-privileged-egocentric-illogical disconnect between their own strongly held tenets of faith. Bear in mind, these examples are only a drop in the bucket of an otherwise ocean of idiocy.

Example #1:

Radical Feminist Claim 1A: “Trans women aren’t women” (meaning males cannot choose to become females). This ad nauseum, poorly-worded refrain has been running through RadFem circle jerks for at least forty years. Despite its ubiquitousness, each and every time it is uttered on social media/academia, it is somehow treated like the discovery of gold amongst beggars.

Radical Feminist Conflicting Claim 1B: “Any woman can choose to become a Lesbian.” Equally vomitous and equally plethoric on/in social media/academia; this bullshit claim is the hallmark of Radical Feminism/STRAIGHTBIANISM everywhere.

The Disconnect: In claim 1A, Radical Feminists clearly understand the biological reality that one sex cannot choose to change into another; not through drugs, not through surgeries, and not through laws. However, in claim 1B, biological reality is completely denied in favor of identity politics. Radical Feminists claim to be “Amazons against identity politics”, claim identity politics harm girls/women, yet fail to see the irony of using and abusing identity politics to co-opt Lesbian, claim Lesbian, and commodify Lesbian (a BIOLOGICAL reality verboten to Heterosexuals via HOMOSEXUAL BIOLOGY!).

Privileged Het women claiming Lesbian for various personal or political reasons has been green-lighted by Radical Feminists; while males doing the EXACT same thing to women (privilege also intact) is viewed/treated as RAPE culture! Therefore, if men parading around as women is RAPE, then what the f**k are Radical Feminist parading around as Lesbians?

Radical Feminists have long claimed males masquerading as women (including drag queens) are RAPING “woman” as an idea; while Radical Feminist STRAIGHTBIANS masquerading as Lesbians are having sexual relations WITH actual Lesbians WITHOUT those actual Lesbians having the knowledge to give INFORMED consent.

That, my friends, is not merely a disconnect, that is FUCKING R*A*P*E!!!!!!!

Sheila Jeffreys Officially Confirms That She Is a Straightbian

An alert reader (thanks!) spotted this hilarious attempted smack-down of Dirt by “Academic Straightbian Susie” Sheila Jeffreys and sent us this comedic screencap taken from Sheila’s latest treatise, “The Lesbian Revolution: Lesbian Feminism in the UK 1970-1990” (2018):

Sheila J Dirt

After nearly choking to death laughing our Lesbian asses off, we decided to do a post about how good old Sheila mistakenly thinks she is so clever, but, in fact, she simply and  naively PROVES the very points we made about her and her Straightbian cohorts.

Okay, so let’s break down Sheila’s sad attempt at dissing Dirt:

1). Sheila claims that Dirt is “no feminist“; apparently mistaking that snarky quip for an insult. Well, no shit, Sherlock; Dirt has never claimed to be a radical feminist. In fact, Dirt is proud to NOT be a radical feminist because she is not a fan of delusional drivel. (And ditto with Mrs. Dirt, by the way). Duh.

2). Sheila, while purporting to be a “feminist” herself, seemingly willfully “forgets” to cite Mrs. Dirt as the equal co-author of the entire Unstraightening Lesbian series. As a Academic Straightbian Susie herself, Sheila clearly should be familiar with the rules of citation; after all, she is quite well known for infamously citing herself at every opportunity. Her intentional lack of citation shows that her “feminist” principles apparently do not include the fact that a Lesbian partner/co-author as being worthy of recognition — which is actually not very feminist after all, now is it? Think about it.

3). Poor Sheila apparently lacks reading comprehension skills and/or even the most basic of accurate reporting skills. Neither of us have EVER said that “women who have ever related sexually to men can never become lesbians.” In fact, we have both written about “Later-In-Life Lesbians“. What we have said is that NOBODY can “become a Lesbian. You either are born a Lesbian, or you are not one at all. Some Lesbians may initially attempt to please their families/society/church/etc. by marrying a man, then later come out as a Lesbian. But guess what? THEY WERE LESBIANS ALL ALONG, EINSTEIN. You know who isn’t a Lesbian, and never will be, though, Sheila et al.? A HETEROSEXUAL female who chooses (for whatever reason) to partner with another female, that’s who. For approximately the millionth time: Behavior does NOT equal orientation. Geez, Sheila. Do try to keep up, dear.

4). Sheila writes, “She (Dirt) says that I am not and have never been a lesbian because I was once heterosexual; rather, I am a ‘straightbian'”. Um, yeah, exactly. BINGO! Ding ding ding, Sheila wins a prize! Yes, that is exactly what we are saying, Sheila: IF YOU ARE A HETEROSEXUAL, sweetie, YOU ARE NOT A FREAKING LESBIAN. You are one or you are the other; you can never be both, nor can you switch back and forth. Sheila states clearly here in this passage that she was, in fact, born a HETEROSEXUAL. Ergo, Sheila is NOT A LESBIAN (nor is any other Straightbian), nor has she ever been, nor will she ever be. Which, of course, is the entire point of the Unstraightening Lesbian series.

5). Sheila goes on to babble some bullshit about butchness, then culminates her blather with this “brilliant” (NOT!) thought: “This jockeying for position and for authenticity, for the status of ‘real ones’, creates bitter divisions between lesbians. It also creates a barrier to heterosexual women choosing to become lesbians.” First of all, we aren’t jockeying for “position” — but: we are saying that the plethora of NON-Lesbians (AKA Straightbians), like Shoddy Sheila herself, who have found fame and fortune while arrogantly speaking for Lesbians are wrong and harmful to real Lesbians in a myriad of ways. Secondly, standing up for Lesbian truth and authenticity does not “create bitter divisions between lesbians” — instead, it creates bitter divisions between real Lesbians and fake-ass Straightbians. (Good riddance too. Bye, bye, don’t let the door hit you in the ass on the way out, ladies). Finally, YES: We do, in fact, strive to create a barrier to heterosexual women who falsely claim that they “choose to be Lesbians“. Why? Well, let’s all just THINK about it — we have confidence that even the dullest knife in the drawer is capable of seeing the irony in Sheila’s statement. Yes, IF SOMEONE IS HETEROSEXUAL, SHE IS NOT A LESBIAN. Duh. Sheila freely admits in this passage that she and her cohorts are, in fact, HETEROSEXUAL…which makes Sheila and The Straightbians — wait for it, wait for it — NOT FREAKING LESBIANS. FFS.

6). Neither of us have ever said that females can’t/shouldn’t make a choice to partner with other females. Of course, we recognize that everybody has a right to live their lives any way they see fit. So, go for it, straight chickadees, and do whatever you want…but just know that you are wrong, unethical, and immoral if you call yourself a “Lesbian”.

7). Thanks, Sheila, for publicly admitting what we have been saying all along: that you and others in our Unstraightening Lesbian series are, in fact, HETEROSEXUALS. Being a Lesbian is not a choice, dear, and it’s terribly privileged and arrogant for you and others to claim that it is. Publishing idiotic drivel like the quote above simply reinforces the clueless, twisted, entitled egocentrism of Straightbians: especially the self-proclaimed “lesbian experts” who are neither Lesbians nor experts.

8). LOL at “Although all ‘butch’ lesbians are not as hostile as Dirt…“. Here’s the thing about that quote: Sheila doesn’t even know what Butch means, nor does she actually know a real Butch, but regardless: yes, Dirt is contemptuous toward charlatans, fakes, liars, and frauds…AKA: STRAIGHTBIANS. And so is Mrs. Dirt. It is always interesting that whenever real Lesbians try to stick up for ourselves and push back against the relentless appropriation of our name/lives by NON-Lesbians like Sheila Straightbian, we are called rude, hostile, etc. Hell, many times, we are even accused of being males. The fact that Straightbians cannot even understand what we are saying, nor relate to how we are saying it, is even more proof that Lesbians are different than straight women.

9). Kindly take your radical feminist malarkey and shove it way, way far up your…well, you know.

You still are, Sheila. You always will be.

It’s Neither Radical Nor Feminist To Hijack “Lesbian”

My sweetie Dirt wrote a post yesterday entitled “How Lesbian Became the Vehicle for Radical Feminist Anger“.  Please read her post, here, first, because this post is intended as a supplement.

Dirt’s post deals with how Radical Feminists appropriated “Lesbian” and falsely used “Lesbian” as a vehicle to express their own anger toward men/patriarchy.

Analyzing the RadFem definition of “Lesbian” (“What is a lesbian? A lesbian is the rage of all women condensed to the point of explosion.”), it should be incredibly obvious to anyone with an IQ higher than mayonnaise that the so-called “Radicalesbians” who wrote the misguided and male-obsessed treatise “The Woman Identified Woman” (and their gung-ho disciples) were/are neither Radical nor Lesbian.

These angry straight women decided, in typical straight-privileged fashion, that they were unhappy with the status-quo regarding men/patriarchy, but instead of directly and effectively taking action to actually change their relationships with men and/or to dismantle patriarchy in any systematic or useful fashion, they chose to cowardly retreat from battle, using their contrived camouflage of “Lesbian” as a way to hide from and avoid the true issues.

Under the guise of “sisterhood“, these straight women proceeded to do the least “sisterly” thing possible:  they proceeded to steamroll over real Lesbians in every way possible, and continue to do so even today.

Ironically, these same purported “Lesbian feminists” are the very same individuals who are arguing incessantly that males cannot become females simply by saying so…yet, somehow, they fail to comprehend the irony that they are doing the very same thing: claiming to be something they are not, while arrogantly expecting to be automatically believed and welcomed with open arms.

Real Lesbians were (and still are) an inconvenient truth in these faux “Lesbians’” alleged “feminism“.

We insist on pointing out the pesky truth that the prevalent myth that “any woman can be a Lesbian” is an outright lie. We point out that arguing with men all day, every day on Twitter  or elsewhere isn’t actually taking constructive action. We repeatedly point out that Lesbians are not “angry man-haters”; that being Lesbian is not a choice; and that every woman who claims to be a Lesbian is not actually a Lesbian.

In short, we are raining on their parade and they don’t like it.

Here’s the thing: It is not “radical” to run from the true issues and hide behind a mask. It is not “radical” to appropriate “Lesbian” because you are too scared to stand up for your rights as a straight woman. And it’s certainly not “feminist” to harm real Lesbians with your nonsense.

So, instead of “Radical Feminist Lesbians“, a more apt title would be “Cowardly Straight Female Liars”.

What would be truly “radical” for these straight females to do would be to constructively find ways to gain and maintain power in their heterosexual relationships and to actually address societal inequities in a methodical and effective fashion.

These faux “Lesbian feminists” can unfollow or block Dirt and me; they can call us “scary” or “dangerous” or “bullies” or “mind-controllers” or any other name; they can attempt to discredit us; and they can continue proclaiming to the top of their lungs that all it takes to be a Lesbian is to simply claim to be one.

But no matter how loud they scream or how vehement their protests against what Dirt and I are saying, the truth remains the same:

Wherever you go, there you are.

And for these false “Lesbian feminists“, they are still stuck in the same place they were in 1970: still arguing with/about males under the false guise of “Lesbian“.

It’s way past time to stop of being stuck that rut, don’t you think?
