Transsexual Empire

I’ve recently obtained a copy of Transsexual Empire by Janice Raymond and you can get your updated copy from here too:

Trans Empire

Janice Raymond’s book is essentially about how men are invading into women’s space by artificially reconstructing themselves to be female looking. Janice Raymond also asserts the same of female to male transsexuals, females invading into men’s space, but with less emphasis.

The below video is used to be titled “From 45X/46XY True Hermaphrodite with CAH to Intersex Fraudster”

Rudy Alaniz has been on YouTube for years asserting ‘she’ is a True Hermaphrodite, has Congenital Adrenal Virilising Hyperplasia, and has 45X/46XY mosaicism, and that ‘she’ is in the process of transitioning male to female. I’ve already proven ‘her’ True Hermaphrodite and 45X/46XY claims to be absolute lies. However ‘her’ claims to be in transition and to have CAH I’ve not yet proven to be false, but I think the likelihood of them being true is so close to zero they might as well be zero.

Rudy Alaniz aka Mishakailana as ‘she’ is known as on YouTube has been in transition ever since I first started on YouTube in 2008, which has to be the longest transition I have ever heard of, for a male to female transsexual. It has been so long and so little change has occurred I’m more inclined to believe these days that ‘she’ is in fact a Female Impersonator.

It appears to me that ‘radical feminists’ and persons with Disorders of Sex Development have a great deal in common when it comes to healthy males invading into spaces set aside for them. Of course persons with Disorders of Sex Development can be either male or female and can be, or not, feminists. My criticism of is of persons who pretend to be Transsexual using a medical diagnosis to justify their claims, which are in fact medically impossible.

The latest false claimant of a Disorder of Sex Development to justify transitioning to female is Chloe Prince, who pretended to be diagnosed with Klinefelter’s syndrome, and still pretends to be diagnosed with Klinefelter’s syndrome. However, Transsexualism is a bona fide psychiatric illness characterised by no other disorder of a sexual, or gender identity, being present.

The diagnosis is not made if the individual has a concurrent physical intersex condition (e.g., androgen insensitivity syndrome or congenital adrenal hyperplasia) (Criteria C). In proposed changes to DSM 5 the statement is “B. The individual does not have an intersex or sexual development condition”

Therefore their claim of a medical diagnosis automatically cancels their Transsexual claim. If these people really do have the Disorders of Sex Development they claim, they would never get any Medical Insurance, or other medical surgical assistance, to transition, as they don’t qualify. If they have accessed Insurance to pay for their transition surgery, this is strong indication that they do not have a Disorder of Sex Development.

Originally I intended to debunk Janice Raymond’s book as I thought it heavily relied on information from disgraced psychologist Dr John Money, when determining at which point gender identity is established. As it happens she has as much support for his theories as many other people, not much at all.

Transsexual male to constructed female, are not female. They did not live the life of a female, with the prejudice Janice Raymond describes. They were in fact the privileged male, and then decided that they wanted what they perceive as the best of both worlds.

They tend to be males who have had their family, I’ve observed. They’re heterosexual, when the’re male attracted to females. They are reconstructed males to look like females, that makes perfect sense to me.

The motivation for their reconstruction is what Janice Raymond seeks to explain. I can’t, I can’t understand why any normal fertile man wants to emasculate himself, when he can just as easily dress up as a female, and pretend like Mishakailana, Nicky K D Chaleunphone, and Gavan Coleman.

None of these people have lived a life as a female would, and cannot possibly claim to be female as a result, yet they all do. They are all anatomical males with a Y chromosome and at least 1 X. They are also very good friends, suggesting a certain ‘copy cat’ mentality.

I can’t understand females who say they feel male, yet don’t understand why biological males they grew up with reject their transition. All the males ever knew the person as was female, how can they be expected to accept the person as male, simply because s/he says so? And why, if she feels so male, does she not understand her biological male counterparts?

Wanting to be male or female is not the same as living male or female. I tend to agree with Janice Raymond.

Rehashing the Obvious

Gina Wilson says:

“Intersex is not a disease, a disorder, a medical “condition”.”

The title of my blog is “Intersex is a Generic Term.” Maybe I made a mistake, maybe I should have titled this blog “Klinefelter’s syndrome is the symptoms of disease?” Ahhh, even XXY guys and KS’ers get upset with me when I say that! Ohhh can’t speak the obvious, or type it! Do you know some deluded souls actually believe the symptoms of the disease they’re treated for, (KS’ers) is a representation of who they actually are? (XXY guys) It is outrageous what some people believe. But then, some people even believe the bible is true, or in Father Christmas, and in fairies at the bottom of the bloody garden. Gina Wilsons’ views fit firmly in that category of childhood fantasy, and false imaginations, or even magical thinking. Which is a psychiatric illness by the way!

Oh and who is Gina Wilson? I dunno, somebody, who thinks she’s somebody, who thinks she knows what to tell me about my sex, as if she’s given herself all knowing rights over my body and my sex. Anybody’d think Gina Wilson was me, the way she inserts her views of herself into other people’s existence, and mine. Maybe the medical condition Gina Wilson doesn’t have, that doesn’t affect her primary and/or secondary sex characteristics, and has no (as she doesn’t have a condition) effect on her reproductive ability….. what utter drivel! Notice how much sense that doesn’t make? Well that’s intersex according to Gina Wilson. It has no impact on ones life, any part of life, ever, as it’s not a “disease, a disorder, a medical “condition”. Well I do have a medical condition, that when seen is the symptoms of disease, which renders me infertile. So I really don’t understand what Gina Wilson THINKS she talking about, when she clearly hasn’t got a fucking clue!

How can it be that anything that escapes this ignorant womans mouth relates to me? Who cares what stupidity Gina Wilson has to say? Is she some kind of medical specialist, or doctor, or nurse, or researcher? Actually I don’t know, I’ve not taken the time to study Gina Wilson, as I’ve taken the time to study the disease I’m treated for. I bet you all know the disease I’m treated for is called Seminiferous Tubule Dysgenesis, which is effectively the same as being a eunuch. For most XXY guys testes are present, they even function before puberty, and tend to fail rather dramatically after the onset of puberty, caused by that disease I mentioned, “Seminiferous Tubule Dysgenesis.” And what might cause that disease, I bet you’re not asking? But you can tell I’m being sarcastic, and I’ll answer for you, additional X genetic material, usually expressed as an additional X SEX chromosome. Of course I don’t usually say “sex chromosome” as all the other bits of genetic information are called ‘autosomes’ therefore all chromosomes must be sex chromosomes, as there are no sex autosomes. But then people who don’t know refer to all autosomes and chromosomes as “chromosomes” and everything gets all bloody confused for no good reason.

So; Intersex is a Generic term as it encompasses a great many, totally unrelated, medical conditions, that affect the primary and/or secondary sex characteristics, and without those medical conditions “intersex” would not exist. Speaking of biological males; if all boys were born with testes in their scrotum, if all boys were born with XY sex chromosomes, if all boys were born with a penis, there would be no malformations of genitalia, no mishaps in cell division, no male infertility, and no intersex males. The same type of argument exists for females but I’m not female and I’ll let females speak for themselves.

Is Gina Wilson the only person in OII (Organisation Intersex International) who ignores the blatantly obvious in favour of magical thinking? By no means, of course not! Curtis E Hinkle also has the same delusion. I had a bit of a run in with Curtis, who was for years on my friend list on Facebook, but alas I didn’t know Curtis too can only abide people who agree with his every nonsensical thought. Curtis can’t be corrected. Curtis can’t make mistakes. Curtis always interprets the bible correctly, and Curtis is a controller of conversation. On Curtis’s Facebook there’s such a thing as “off topic.”

Please remember, I believe the bible is bullshit. It’s an interesting story, covers generations of a people, their customs, religious practices, ideas, interactions with other peoples in the region they existed in, but is far from the word of God. But for this article I’ll assume it has merit in the terms of an event that actually happened.

Please go to “Matthew 19:12” actually that’s just a bit of the story, the story really begins at Matthew 19:3 where questions of marriage and divorce were asked of the lead character Jesus, and he went into a series of explanations as to why divorce was allowed, or not. Then in Matthew 19:10 a specific question is asked of Jesus’ by his disciples, “If this is the situation between husband and wife, is it better not to marry?” So you can read this whole topic is about marriage & divorce. Curtis being an entrenched non scholar of bible text assumes the only part of relevance is the answer Jesus gives in Matthew 19:12, and takes no account at all of any of the preceding verses. Curtis believes the part where Jesus answers and says “….For some are eunuchs because they were born that way….” and this is a representation in the bible of a condition that would be referred to as ‘intersex’ today. And of course I disagree, this is not intersex, this character is as male today as he was in biblical times. And when Curtis read my response he was so infuriated, he blocked me! I can’t actually read what I said anymore but it goes something like this, “Well I don’t, the medical profession doesn’t, in fact nobody but people like you do” (that is refer to these men as intersex.) For more than a few people the word ‘intersex’ is actually an insult, not that Curtis or Gina care what others feel or think of the words they use to describe them. A curious situation then exists, where those advocating understanding of themselves are the least willing to understand others who don’t share their point of view, and of course the best way to ignore another point of view is not talk to people with them.

So this is what OII and Gina Wilson and Curtis E Hinkle say:

“Intersex is not a disease, a disorder, a medical “condition”.”

Which is just fine I suppose for them, they don’t need medical care, they can walk away from the medical profession any time they like, but I’m sure I read just recently that Curtis was taking testosterone? I guess that drug is available for non medical reasons, obtained from non medical sources? Whatever his reason to take it, it’s not medical, he doesn’t have a medical condition that causes intersex in him. So if the medical profession actually take Gina Wilson or Curtis E Hinkle seriously, can you imagine an XXY boy arriving at a doctors surgery for therapy, only to be told “go away, what you have is a natural representation of normal, you’re not sick, come back when you’ve got a real health issue.” And can you imagine OII when they hear of such a situation jumping up and down like chooks with their heads decapitated, protesting “Our people are being refused medical care!”

I sure can believe that myself!

Just having a rant about O.I.I. Australia’s Board Members

Well I think they’re all Board Members anyway.

Just another 10% of a new video upload to go.

Such a struggle to type. It took me a little over 4 hours to make a 15 minute video. If I tried to type it all I’d be at it for several days.

9% to go.

It’s really taking its time, good old Vimeo.

I was told these blogs inserted their own links automatically, but they don’t do they, no the writer has to paste them in…… I’m just so tired, it’s only 2:11 AM, Saturday though, that’s handy!

7% to go.

The way OII presents us we’re all the same. Chris moans about how we’re supposedly not mentally or educationally different, Michael writes as if everybody has big issues with their medical professionals, Gina seems to think her medical condition is not related at all to her physical appearance. And me I’m just an ordinary guy with an additional X, health issues, educational issues, all the regular sorts of things associated with my state of being. How come OII doesn’t mention how we’re all so different, the XXY’s that is?

My Official Position on XXY/Klinefelter’s syndrome being Intersex

Originally posted to OII’s Facebook page & Curtis E Hinkle:
Hello Curtis, having now educated myself as to what OII is all about, or mostly about, I see no justification for OII to include anymore the symptoms of disease Klinefelter’s syndrome as an Intersex condition.

All arguments that KS could be considered intersex fail. Such as most of the additional X that brings about the symptoms of disease KS represents, is inactivated. It has no impact on an XXY’s life from soon after fertilisation. The only genes that do have an effect, located on the pseudo-autosomal region of the X’s, have been mapped by the Human Genome Project and none have been found to have anything at all to do with sex or gender. Indeed, in all males, the only chromosome that can be said to be a “sex” chromosome is the Y with an active SRY gene that effectively says “make a male.”

The genitalia of XXY males is “unambiguously male” at birth and the symptoms of hypogonadism seen in men with Klinefelter’s syndrome are not unique to them. Any man who has atrophied testes develops the same symptoms as men with classic KS. Therefore the only difference in the terms of the disease seminiferous tubule dysgenesis and XY men with atrophied testes is the age of onset of hypogonadism. There is absolutely nothing intersex about all men with supernumerary X chromosomes, regardless of how many additional X’s there are.

It is “folklore genetics” and psychiatric illness that causes some men with supernumerary X’s to assume they’re intersex.

Also, OII’s stated position in almost all matters to do with health care is “no intervention.” That policy might sound just and reasonable for persons born with “differences in sex” but it is not acceptable for many XXY and variant boys who regularly require educational, psychological, psychiatric, and medical interventions throughout their lives. To propose any other course and actually follow it will be detrimental to good health.

I propose that men with Klinefelter’s syndrome be regarded as any other XY transsexual man, pre-op, when it comes to describing them as “intersex.” And that a statement to that effect ought to be made in your lengthy articles about inclusions and exclusions. The only justification these men have to claim intersex is psychiatric illness.

Michael Noble – Australian Misguided Academic

Michael Noble on OII Australia says:

Even though it’s evident that I possess a blend of male and female chromosomes, the medical and legal professions had proclaimed that it doesn’t matter how many X chromosomes a person may have, if they possess even one Y chromosome, they are legally classified as a male. In recent years, however, this pedantic definition has been challenged, thus enabling XXY to be legitimately recognized, in some sections of the academic world, as an intersex condition.”

Ummm Michael,  Michael Noble, the ‘owner’ of a degree in Communications and Creative Writing, you’re that Michael Noble? Unless you’re completely thick you MUST realise that every XY man on the planet has a “blend of male and female chromosomes” or did sex education pass you by along with puberty?

And of course being that you’re so well educated, (except in sex),  you MUST realise that it was not the Y that gave you your male sex determination, but your physical appearance at birth! Even you admit you were not diagnosed until age 23, therefore for 23 years you were just a run of the mill, ordinary old Australian liar, like plenty of your ignorant countrymen.

We do not put an R in CAN’T we don’t even pronounce an R, you ignorant bastards* just can’t listen!  

Anyway, no matter how many X’s are present only 1 is fully active, and the only parts of the additional X’s that are active are in the PAR, the pseudo-autosomal region of the X.  Oh and every female is the same, they have two X’s and 1 is inactivated, except for the genes in the PAR.  Therefore the more PAR genes  interacting I predict the greater the degree of difficulty experienced by the affected persons.

So the definition of male chromosomally is not “pedantic” but simply “accurate.”  It’s probably your refusal to take the level of hormone associated with your sex, and the hot hot sun you experience in your barren wasteland of a country, that causes you to imagine every X is equally active, even in females!

What is postulated, that may also cause problems for XXY’s is skewed inactivation. It’s just another thing that separates XXY males from our XX female counterparts.  They have random X inactivation, but XXY males such as your totally male self Michael, probably have non random (or skewed) X inactivation.

The more we learn Michael the less impressive your argument becomes, not that it was ever “impressive” I was just being generous!  You’ll get used New Zealanders, we’re like that, generous!

Combined with the PAR genes, and skewed inactivation in XXY males, the reasons for the development of Klinefelter’s syndrome, also known as, “The symptoms of the disease seminiferous tubule dysgenesis”  has probably now been isolated?  It is not that the additional X is female in character Michael, nor that you got yours from your mother – as you claim, (although you’ve never provided evidence of your claim), but rather much more complicated reasons, reasons that are not subject to Folklore genetics!

Michael goes on to say:

“The existence of intersex people has been concealed for many decades, because they threaten the man-made laws of nature, which dictate there are two sexes: male and female. Yet, nature does not manifest in comfortable, finite boxes. Rather it exists as infinite spectra of variation. But to our modern scientific mind this variation threatens to unleash chaos. And what drives science? The desire to control nature.”

Now then Michael, that is complete drivel. The desire of science is not to control nature, but to understand the reasons why things are the way they are, and in the terms of medical science, to alleviate suffering.  If you feel controlled by the medical profession, that may well be your particular psychiatric disease showing through?  Paranoid states & hysterical syndromes are noted features in many men said to have Klinefelter’s syndrome, or as I would say, XXY men.

That pesky little additional X plays a major role in all our lives, and no matter how much you want to pretend I regard it as meaningless, in fact I regard it as the major factor that causes the under educated like yourself, to believe they are mistreated by the medical profession. However Michael, I’m well adjusted, having sought and received proper health care from the very beginning. I took my doctors advice and I do not believe the medical profession has the desires you claim, without any justification.

And again Michael continues with his paranoid ramblings:

“Eventually, the medical profession could no longer pretend that biological sex was confined to the polar binaries of male and female, but rather some infants presented characteristics of both sexes. Yet, instead of simply accepting that anatomical sex could exist as a spectrum of possibilities, the intersex variations were medicalized: thus requiring surgery and/or hormone reassignment therapies in order to ‘cure’ such ‘aberrations’ and ‘disorders’. In other words, the medical profession believed they could play god and determine which sex and gender a child would be reassigned to, and raised as. And they did this, not for the benefit of the ‘afflicted’ individual, but rather to make the medical community, parents, and society in general, feel better.”

I’m certain, completely and totally certain, the medical profession did not set about to make the lives of infants unbearable, nor was there any conspiracy to ruin your life Michael.  Have you actually read this crap you wrote Michael?  Where there are errors in anatomical sex that YOU would see Michael, if you were ever the parent of a child with ambiguity of genitalia, which I expect would be the only way YOU could see, you may well have a different opinion?

You’re not a parent, you’ll never be a parent, you have no concept of parenting and the desire of parents to have their children treated fairly in society.  I can see that some medical procedures as being unnecessary, such as circumcision, but to lump all procedures into that classification by a person such as yourself is somewhat presumptuous.  I believe the medical profession was acting with the best interests of the child in mind,  and for the most part did an excellent job.   Yes they did screw up from time to time, and most of those children had no anatomical differences in sex, until they were butchered, they WERE anatomically NORMAL.

I must remind you that you started your little rampage with the notion that gender plays no role in the determination of one’s supposed intersex status, but here you want to include gender as part of your highly emotively written diatribe.  I wonder how you would feel if you did see the untreated results in an infant that had no interventions, that was born with ambiguity of genitalia?  The indication from opinions delivered by men such as yourself, who were not diagnosed early enough with Klinefelter’s syndrome, suggests the outcomes of no intervention would be disastrous.  It’s a very difficult situation for all involved, and a wee bit of compassion for the parents and individuals concerned would be appreciated.  Blaming and shaming Michael does your argument no good at all.  People are born with disorders Michael,  look around you.

 

*”Bastards” is a term of endearment in Australian common usage lingo.

Pet Hate

Yes I do have a “Pet Hate”  I bet most people have this one too, being deliberately misrepresented by people who ought to know better!  OII Australia Limited, ever heard of OII, (Organisation Intersex International Australia)? In 2008 I seriously investigated the possibility that Klinefelter’s syndrome and XXY were intersex, yes I spent a whole year investigating.  I found the medical description, Klinefelter’s syndrome  is listed under the chapter on “Disorders of Sex Differentiation,” all sorts of other conditions OII would refer to as intersex are described there too, oh and Kallmann syndrome isn’t one of them, it’s described in the chapter on “Disorders of Puberty.”   That seems pretty conclusive I thought, yeah if OII describes a condition as intersex and it’s described in medical literature under chapters to do with sex differentiation, then it must be the same thing!  Of course it must be; right? Maybe not!   Then I went to XXYTALK where I found XXY men referring to themselves as “Men with an intersex condition and identifying as male.”   That seemed pretty clever, I could adopt that I thought, I think I even did describe myself like that for a time, but I had this niggling thought, “Where does the word ‘intersex’ come from?”

It turns out intersex as a word in modern usage derives from the birth of children with ambiguous genitalia.  Only a very few conditions described in the chapter on “Disorders of Sex Differentiation” could have ambiguity of genitalia, and Klinefelter’s syndrome and XXY are not two of them.  Ahaaa, a division of conditions exists!  Those with ambiguity, a small subset,  and those without ambiguity, the vast majority.  And the “vast majority” compared to the worlds entire population is not even a drop in the bucket!  So those with ambiguity of genitalia, those I’ll describe as “True Intersex,”  are a very rare breed indeed.  But XXY is a very common sex chromosome aneuploidy, occurring between 1:500 to 1:1000 live male births.  And “aneuploidy,” by the way, means “not the usual number.”  And Klinefelter’s syndrome is the most common collection of symptoms of disease XXY males can get.  From time to time XXY boys can be born with a small penis, or undescended testes (balls), but XY boys can also have the same  at birth.  Such minor malformations of genitalia are not described as ‘intersex conditions’ as there’s nothing  ambiguous about them.

Then in my travels of discovery I found OII Australia, and an XXY guy called Michael Noble.  Michael is a clever chappy, well he thinks he is at least.  He’s an “ACADEMIC” yes he has a degree in Creative Writing and Communications.  He is very creative in his writing that’s for sure!  Of course being an academic and a creative writer is no reason to assume that person has a clue what he’s talking about, when it comes to matters outside his field of interest!   My field of interest is XXY genetics.   Having wondered what Barr Bodies were, and found them to be the “shadow” of the inactivated X in all people with more than 1 X chromosome, it then became obvious to me that XXY males were effectively XY males with a Barr body, an inactivated additional X, as our sex is assigned us at birth based on our genital presentation, just like everybody else.

Michael Noble says that is asserting the additional X in “meaningless.”  Eh what?  Meaningless?  How does he arrive at that notion?  Ahhhh, he arrives there as he claims I say “…..if the physical affects of Klinefelter’s syndrome can be masked, then this renders the additional X chromosome as meaningless.”  Previous to that Michael claims his understanding that there’s a difference between being XXY and having Klinefelter’s syndrome is derived from “the ‘smoke-screen’ tactics of Tucker and such like…”  and I just happen to be the “Tucker” he’s referring to.

You can see just how creative Michael’s writing really is.  How is educating Michael that there really is a difference between being XXY and having Klinefelter’s syndrome a “smoke-screen tactic?”   Is it because he’s Australian, XXY, or just because he’s Michael?  Actually; regardless of the treatment an XXY man has, whether he prefers the disfigurement of  the symptoms of disease Klinefelter’s syndrome is, or not, plays no role in the effect of the additional X, or to be exactly precise, “the additional active genes on the pseudo-autosomal region of the additional X.”   What is “meaningless” is the rest of the additional X that is inactivated, just like it is inactivated in 46,XX females!

So the whole idea that the additional X brings with it some notion of femininity is just plain ludicrous, folk-lore genetics, pseudo-science, nonsense, XXY University rubbish!  The basis of it is high school genetics in the minds of children masquerading as adults! In short, under educated XXY men, who think they’re intersex.
