Transgender Handouts at UMass Examine ‘Gender-Normative Privilege’

Transgender Handouts at UMass Examine ‘Gender-Normative Privilege’

“aimed at teaching students about transgender issues”

Does anyone outside of this academic field use these terms or even know what they mean?

Campus Reform reports:

‘Transgender handouts’ examine ‘Gender-Normative Privilege’

The Stonewall Center at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst is offering informational handouts to guide students through topics such as “Gender-Normative Privilege.”

The Stonewall Center, which is the “LGBTQIA+ Resource Center” on campus, offers a series of twelve “handouts” on its website aimed at teaching students about transgender issues, including “Transgender Terminology,” “How to Be an Ally to Transgender People,” “Transgender Films,” and more.

A primer on Gender-Normative Privilege, for instance, provides a checklist students can use to identify “if I am gender normative (or, in some cases, simply perceived as gender normative).”

Some of the indications that one is gender normative include the ability to “purchase shoes that fit my gender expression without having to order them in special sizes or asking someone to custom-make them,” being able to use the showers at a gym or public pool, and not being “expected to constantly defend my medical decisions.”

A “Transgender Terminology” handout, meanwhile, features a glossary of terms for students to study, such as “MTF Individuals,” which is defined as “Male-to-female transsexual people, transsexual women, or trans women—individuals assigned male at birth who identify as female.”

Likewise, the school defines phrases such as “Cisgender Privilege,” “Two Spirit People,” “Genderqueer Individuals,” and “Gender Affirming Surgery.”

Transgenders are victims because they have a more difficult time finding shoes that fit, readily available in stores? Well, boo-freaking-hoo. As a tall woman, my sympathy level for them is less than zero. Hey.. maybe I can start a special victims group for people who aren’t “height normative”.

Ortho-privileged. LOL. Quit reminding me of all the ways in which I am superior. The wifey is finding me to be unbearable. 🙂

Here’s a thought – just IDENTIFY as a Size 6. Pain is just an archetype of the White Male Patriarchy.

Why do they continue to demand that we buy into their psychosis?

Transgender issues in a nutshell: Okay, kids, listen up: There are some folks who are mentally ill and believe themselves to be the opposite gender from what they really are. They are sick in the head, and playing into their delusions can only harm them. Be kind, but do not sacrifice truth.

There, done.

In related news, several LGBT groups filed lawsuits against Lexington Home Brands today for “causing Transexuals traumatic emotional pain and suffering by denying their true gender”. Lexington manufactures mirrors.

    I suspect the American Federation of Vampires union will join in on this lawsuit. Not being able to see one’s image in a mirror is discrimination that inflicts emotional violence on people who are not hemo-normative.

      You laugh but there are a lot of people who identify as vampires in PDX. It really is hard to keep a straight face at times, and as a brain scientist, I am genuinely interested in just how their wiring got SO messed up. I frequently have to stop myself from asking “did they catch the people who did this to you?”

      Twenty years ago John Mendoza publicly identified as a lesbian trapped in a man’s body. Not all got that it was a joke.
