I know. I’m old. Out of touch.
That’s probably why I’m reeling at the story of a transwoman raping a transman. Uh?
Cherno Biko, if you haven’t heard of the story.
Cherno Biko is a Brooklyn based award winning media activist and human rights advocate. She serves as the Co Chair of the Young Women’s Advisory Council for the City of New York and has been named to the Trans 100 and NBC BLK 28 Under 28.
Right. So we have a self-confessed rapist as a human rights advocate?
Apparently Biko is sorry for raping someone but it’s not their fault because they were sexually abused as a child.
Do you know, Biko, how many women, no, not transwomen, have been sexually abused? And that’s just the reported figures. And how many of those women go on to rape someone else? Unlike you?
Let’s get one thing clear. Anyone who sticks their penis in a vagina, and rips off a condom, hoping to impregnate their victim, is not by any stretch of the imagination a woman. Nor is their victim, a man.
Although Biko has confessed to rape, I am unable to validate the ripping-off-the-condom story in order to impregnate.
But actually, er how many women with cocks rape men with vaginas?
Alice in Wonderland has nothing on this surreality.
When are people going to wake up?
Biological sex is immutable.
Gender is a social construct.
I don’t wake up on Tuesday and decide it’s my Gender Identity Man Day.
Men don’t wake up Wednesday and put on a frock and make-up (got to be feminine) and wander into womens’ toilets or changing rooms and perv on them because it is Gender Identity Woman Day. And take photos. Or whatever other pervy men who think they are women get up to.
So sue me for being a TERF.
And spending a lifetime of being frightened of being assaulted and raped and getting pregnant. Because that is the reality of being born a woman. Unlike men who wear frocks and put on make-up because they really *are* women.
Meanwhile, I got called a weirdo for checking the sources of this story. Oh well, shit happens. Nothing new in feminism. Sadly, I’m too old to give a fuck.
