“Young women feel pressured to sleep with trans women ‘to prove I am not a terf [trans exclusionary radical feminist]’.”
Biology is a fickle thing, isn’t it?
A BBC report about a survey from a lesbian group has set off a firestorm because it exposes the radical left’s hatred of basic biology.
The lesbians do not reject a person because they are trans. They are attracted to females. Biological females. I cannot describe why I am attracted to males like lesbians cannot describe why they are attracted to women. You just know.
Caroline Lowbridge dove into the subject after lesbians contacted her about her article on “sex, lies, and legal consent.” They told her others pressured them to “accept the idea that a penis can be a female sex organ.”
***This blog post has strong language. But I find it important because as I said it exposes the danger the radical left poses to society.
She said that of the 80 women who did respond, 56% reported being pressured or coerced to accept a trans woman as a sexual partner.
While acknowledging the sample may not be representative of the wider lesbian community, she believes it was important to capture their “points of view and stories”.
As well as experiencing pressure to go on dates or engage in sexual activity with trans women, some of the respondents reported being successfully persuaded to do so.
“I thought I would be called a transphobe or that it would be wrong of me to turn down a trans woman who wanted to exchange nude pictures,” one wrote. “Young women feel pressured to sleep with trans women ‘to prove I am not a terf [trans exclusionary radical feminist]’.”
Amy pointed out other biological differences because it’s more than just your sex organ: “I can hear their male vocal cords. I can see their male jawline. I know, under their clothes, there is male genitalia. These are physical realities, that, as a woman who likes women, you can’t just ignore.”
One woman reported being targeted in an online group. “I was told that homosexuality doesn’t exist and I owed it to my trans sisters to unlearn my ‘genital confusion’ so I can enjoy letting them penetrate me,” she wrote.
One woman described her dates with trans-women as conversion therapy: “I knew I wasn’t attracted to them but internalised the idea that it was because of my ‘transmisogyny’ and that if I dated them for long enough I could start to be attracted to them. It was DIY conversion therapy.”
A trans woman raped a lesbian after a date: “[They] threatened to out me as a terf and risk my job if I refused to sleep with [them],” she wrote. “I was too young to argue and had been brainwashed by queer theory so [they were] a ‘woman’ even if every fibre of my being was screaming throughout so I agreed to go home with [them]. [They] used physical force when I changed my mind upon seeing [their] penis and raped me.”
Jennie said one person told her “they would rather kill me than Hitler” because refused to have sex with a trans-woman. People called her transphobic and genital fetishist:
“There’s a common argument that they try and use that goes ‘What if you met a woman in a bar and she’s really beautiful and you got on really well and you went home and you discovered that she has a penis? Would you just not be interested?'” says Jennie, who lives in London and works in fashion.
“Yes, because even if someone seems attractive at first you can go off them. I just don’t possess the capacity to be sexually attracted to people who are biologically male, regardless of how they identify.”
Trans-Women Speak Out Against Labeling These Lesbians “Transphobic”
Remember, just because a group of people is loud, it does not mean their voice represents the majority. Usually, these people are the rabid extremes of the left or right.
That logic applies to this research as well because it seems the majority of trans-women understand why lesbians are not attracted to them.
“This is something I’ve seen happen in real life to friends of mine. This was happening before I actually started my channel and it was one of the things that spurred it on,” said Rose.
“What’s happening is women who are attracted to biological females and female genitalia are finding themselves put in very awkward positions, where if for example on a dating website a trans woman approaches them and they say ‘sorry I’m not into trans women’, then they are labelled as transphobic.”
Rose believes views like this are “incredibly toxic”. She believes the idea that dating preferences are transphobic is being pushed by radical trans activists and their “self-proclaimed allies”, who have extreme views which don’t reflect the views of trans women she knows in real life.
“Certainly from my own friends group, the trans women I’m friends with, almost all of them agree lesbians are free to exclude trans women from their dating pool,” she said.
However, she believes even trans people are afraid to talk openly about this for fear of abuse.
“People like me receive quite a lot of abuse from trans activists and their allies,” she said.
“The trans activist side is incredibly rabid against people who they see as stepping out of line.”
Large LGBT Organizations Reject Biology
LGBT organization Stonewall has grasped onto the radical left’s views about lesbians rejecting trans-women. Chief Executive Nancy Kelley equated the rejection with rejecting someone based on body shape, race, and special needs:
“Nobody should ever be pressured into dating, or pressured into dating people they aren’t attracted to. But if you find that when dating, you are writing off entire groups of people, like people of colour, fat people, disabled people or trans people, then it’s worth considering how societal prejudices may have shaped your attractions.
“We know that prejudice is still common in the LGBT+ community, and it’s important that we can talk about that openly and honestly.”
Just like the Women’s March in the US, LGBT members broke away from Stonewall due to the embrace of these views:
A new group – LGB Alliance – has been formed partly in response to Stonewall’s change of focus, by people who believe the interests of LGB people are being left behind.
“It’s fair to say that I didn’t expect to have to fight for these rights again, the rights of people whose sexual orientation is towards people of the same sex,” said co-founder Bev Jackson, who also co-founded the UK Gay Liberation Front in 1970.
“We sort of thought that battle had been won and it’s quite frightening and quite horrifying that we have to fight that battle again.”
