I came across this Twitter string a while back that really got me thinking. And it kinda made me sad.
The thread continued:
2/their only measure of objective value is their micro bikini-fitness and willingness to make themselves sexually available to unscrupulous males. From precious little princess to door mat in 2 seconds, plus the indignities, suffering, and strangeness of a woman’s biology.
3/Their emotional pain is tremendous, even in the best of circumstances. And how many have “best” circumstances? Half perhaps or more have absent fathers, and no real conception of what an honorable, faithful and protective man looks like in action.
4/They see the future before them and it is barren. They are told to be like the worst of men, sexually aggressive, single-mindedly devoted to getting ahead in their careers, careless of the home and the sweet concerns that fill the hearts of beloved wives and mothers.
5/That they don’t need a man to protect and cherish them and their children. That’s so PATRIARCHY. They are told that the babies they will inevitably, accidentally conceive can be brushed aside with a couple of pills and some EXTRA painful cramps. And that it will be LIBERATING.
6/That they will grow old and have cats, but that they will really really like that. That having 15 grandchildren to take you to church on Sunday by turns is a stupid old dream that has been supplanted by a better future. You ponder abt the cats but think maybe you can have dogs
7/Would you want to grow up to be a WOMAN? If these were your future prospects? At least men have power in the dating game, they don’t have to post pics of their butt on instagram and be derided for their cellulite.
8/And you are on TikTok and instagram and snapchat all day, trying to feel better about yourself. And they say, they ALL say, that you can flip a switch and be a man instead of a woman. No more periods, overstuffed bikinis, emotional blackness like a bottomless pit.
11/You get a mastectomy and now have the horizontal scars, yes, but they tell you those are beautiful, and your post them on snapchat and get lots of applause and thumbs up. You are BEAUTIFUL! ..finally
12/And you dream of the phalloplasty that will give you a scarred forearm, yes, but you can wear long sleeves. And that will give you real sexual pleasure that you can’t imagine because you’ve never had any but they say it’s real good.
13/And they children you will never bear? That’s NO PROBLEM. Because you can get children all sorts of wonderful, inventive and modern ways, that probably by the time you want them will be funded by the government, like surrogacy and prob. artificial wombs.
14/that you will have love, and companionship, and deep friendships and a family. Then you learn slowly and painfully that it’s all a lie. That you are just caught up in a weird fad powered by the money interests of a HUGE trans industrial complex.
15/That what was natural and beautiful and tender and soft about you was your budding womanhood and that your future as a mother and wife has been erased, replaced by meds and surgeries, incontinence and emotional lability that gets worse not better.
Thiis REALLY makes you think, doesn’t it? Not to condemn, but to ponder.
