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!

Nothing Sophisticated

I’m sure I make better videos than text messages. There’s nothing sophisticated about either of them, I write/speak them all myself, quoting occasionally from an outside source, well maybe more than occasionally?

Who the hell is Michael Noble?

Can you understand that brief sentence, it says I haven’t a clue who Michael Noble is, so if I knew of him from years gone by, I have no recollection of him now. This isn’t very sophisticated, is it! Michael Noble took it upon himself to write a argument against the idea that XXY’s are male, and only male. Of course we both mean XXY boys born with unambiguously male genitalia. Michael wants to assert that he is somehow not really male and cites experiences of his youth as justification for his argument. He quotes extensively from the former NZKA/NZSCS, myself, and Mark Hope. Sexuality, by the way, is not a feature of XXY any more than it is a feature of XY or XX. All people whatever their sex chromosomes can have all manner of expression of sexuality.

Michael Nobles says, only he knows truly for what reason:

“………When writing the paper, I had defended the claim that they (Klinefelter’s syndrome and XXY) were one in the same thing, because of the ‘smoke-screen’ tactics of some online commentators who were exploiting the difference to support their claim that if the physical affects of KS can be masked, then this renders the additional X chromosome as meaningless.”

In Australia (OII Australia)

And

“…………When writing the paper, I had defended the claim that they (Klinefelter’s syndrome and XXY) were one in the same thing, because of the ‘smoke-screen’ tactics of Tucker and such like who were exploiting the difference to support their claim that if the physical affects of KS can be masked, then this renders the additional X chromosome as meaningless.”

Internationally (OII International)

Apparently I have claimed that “if the physical affects of KS can be masked, then this renders the additional X chromosome as meaningless.” and I can tell you I never have made any such a claim. This is pure fantasy. Michael Noble does have a degree in Creative Writing, I wonder if he can discover through his academic contacts, if that can equate to Creative Libel?

This isn’t very sophisticated, or complicated. If I have ever said such a thing, or anybody else for that matter, let him bring his quote forward. Remember to and go and see for yourselves all that he has said, and all that he has quoted, and see from where he got his understanding. I can tell you he invented this information. Michael Noble is a liar.

It is my earnest endeavor to take with me everywhere I go descriptions of the difficulties XXY boys can experience in their lives, and try to get them diagnosed before the onset of puberty, before Klinefelter’s syndrome can develop. That must mean I place great emphasis on the additional X and it is not ‘meaningless’ at all.

I wonder if it is Michael Noble’s position that he does indeed wish to force XXY boys to not be treated, to guarantee Klinefelter’s syndrome does develop? It certainly doesn’t change our sex, that which is determined at birth by way of our physical anatomy. I see the equally ignorant as Michael, Gina Wilson, has written a paper from her unique ilinformed position on XXY too. Is this a case of the willfully blind leading the deliberately ignorant?

Is it Opinion or Official Position OII? from Graeme-xxy on Vimeo.

I think people who are XXY are better suited to answer the question as to what sex they are than Gina Wilson is. We can find plenty of XY males who see themselves as females, live their lives as female, even transition to female, but they are biologically male.

We can’t find so many XXY males who identify as female, or intersex, simply because they don’t identify as anything but male, and I certainly identify as male. Like all other males on the planet I don’t go round saying, day in day out, ‘I identify as male’ as it is self evident that I am male.

The more we find out about human genetics the less some people seem to want to know. I have read reports recently of an XXY phenotypic female who is SRY negative, that is her SRY gene on her Y chromosome does not function. Another report of an XY phenotypic female who is SRY positive, that’s right, her SRY gene is functioning but has no effect.

That I can find 1 report of an XY phenotypic female with an SRY positive gene, does that mean that we can now say all XY males cannot be considered really male anymore? Of course not!

If everybody, including Gina Wilson, walked around naked, there is no way we’d be able to tell if the vast majority were intersex just by looking. Certainly all the XXY males associated with Gina Wilson who identify as intersex, or female, have nothing about their physical characteristics to make such a claim. They are phenotypically male, whether they like it or not. I know this by their own public statements, and the fact that they were not diagnosed at birth! They were declared male like all other males with male genitalia, their chromosomes being unknown.

Sometimes XXY’s are born with malformations of their genitalia, that’s how we know they’re XXY, they have genetic testing done to see what sex they were supposed to be, but had an interference in their development prenatally. The same things happen in XY and XX people too, and hopefully the right decision is made. Considering the known emotional disturbance and personality disorders that are associated with being XXY, I would say leaving such boys in an incomplete state would be seriously hazardous to their mental health and well being.

It seems to me the medical profession is doing nothing to assist this created confusion. Most medical reports link XXY to Klinefelter’s syndrome as if they really were synonymous. They are not. Not all XXY males go on to develop the syndrome Dr Klinefelter described. Even XXY males with normally sized and functioning testes are erroneously described as having Klinefelter’s syndrome, which is the symptoms of the disease Seminiferous Tubule Dysgenesis, brought about by atrophied testes. If your testes are normally sized and functioning ,and you’re XXY, you can’t have Klinefelter’s syndrome. There are many different karyotypes that can lead to the development of Klinefelter’s syndrome, including 46XY and 46XX!

Chromosomes are carriers of genetic information. They have no sex of themselves. It is the combination of the genes that are expressed that bring about our sex, how we are seen and how we see ourselves, in association with our environment, our health, our nourishment and our education.

I suggest people ought to get themselves a better education.

Why we XXY’s with/without Klinefelter’s syndrome aren’t Intersex

  • Klinefelter’s syndrome is the symptoms of disease and according to Organisation Intersex International ‘Intersex is not about pathology or disease’ therefore Klinefelter’s syndrome can’t possibly be ‘intersex.’

    “INTERSEX is not a medical condition or a disorder or a disability or a pathology or a condition of any sort.”

    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?

    Conversations on Facebook

    Michel’le O’Brien
    Originally, OII was created because of perceived problems in ISNA, such as it being focused on North America, yet primarily Anglophone, with limited acknowledgement of Hispanic speakers, and no attempt to include Francophones, of whom there are large numbers in Canada as well as Eastern USA. The main opposition was to ISNA’s support of DSD, something I am sure you would support ISNA for (apart from being in a country outside their coverage). It was only when OII became militant in its opposition to the disorder in DSD, six years ago, and ISNA shut up shop, five years ago, that people who had been members of ISNA began to join OII – as it was the only international non-condition-specific organisation in the world. Far from dinosaurs, trail-blazers at that time! As for your suggestion that therapies be denied, that is crap – we support treatment with informed consent, and that the individual has the right to choose what form that treatment should take.

    Thanks for your contribution Michelle, and my reply is:

    The most fascinating thing of ISNA is the name of it’s newsletter, prior to 2002, “Hermaphrodites with Attitude.” Then Chase and Dreger got involved, two academics who may or may not have DSD’s, or Dreger doesn’t for sure, anyway they steered the ISNA away from Hermaphrodite states to Intersex states, then abandoned ‘intersex’ altogether and initiated it seems against the will of the membership “Disorders of Sex Development” aka DSD’s.

    Also in 2002 Dreger wrote an article about why all manner of non ‘intersex’ conditions ought to be included as ‘intersex’ using a theory not of how different diseases come about, but how those with them are treated, inferring everybody with what we now call DSD’s are dissatisfied with our medical care, and from my experience, research, case reports I’ve read, and personal accounts by XXY’s or men with Klinefelter’s syndrome, we’re not.

    The problem for us has ALWAYS been getting diagnosed early enough and getting adequate hormone therapy. These are the areas we’re discriminated against as even people with severe mental retardation are not castrated, but we are effectively by the refusal to treat! Quite the opposite to what the ISNA XXY and alike members were reporting.

    And an extension was added:

    I see I need to qualify that last statement. Men or adult XXY’s always got sufficient hormone therapy, well sufficient to XY average at least. But teenage boys who were found to be XXY and variants were often refused hormone therapy as they had not developed the syndrome, whereas the men were full blown and suffering.

    Of course for the XXYY’s being 16 and impotent was no laughing matter, and XXXY’s the same. Their learning and behaviour difficulties were, and still are, being used to deny them hormone therapy. And the adults from ISNA were promoting ideas that they had never experienced as they were not diagnosed as teenagers. They appear to be under some weird impression that their experiences are uniform, which is so far from truth you’d need to be completely naive to believe them.

    In reality Michelle, I did not complete male puberty until I was 38 years old for fucks sake! This almost seems typical for XXY males! I didn’t complain when I wasn’t developing as my unaffected peers, and I was delayed anyway, and so long as I could have an erection there didn’t seem any need to make any other changes. I had surgeries willingly to improve my standing in male society, which I do not, of course, regret.

    And do not let yourself be led astray, what I had done was and is quite normal for young men with Klinefelter’s syndrome. What your people refer to as ‘normalising’ surgery in the negative, we regard as ‘normalising’ surgery in the positive. We are not the same, and your people who who choose not to be treated for their Klinefelter’s syndrome are making themselves sick. And of course as adults they can choose that course of action. But the changes caused by testosterone therapy are by no means permanent for XXY males, as soon as they stop therapy they regress to a prepubertal state. Information given you by your XXY male members is wrong.

    And take out the word ‘intersex’ and we’re blood brothers and sisters Michelle. Yes we all have atypical sex development, I agree. Happy now? 🙂 It’s the real issues that affect each group that is important. We don’t share the same issues, not like the XXY or Klinefelter men who regard themselves as intersex declare. They’re making up stories to fit in, claiming all manner of similarities that aren’t there. By treating us our doctors are doing us a major favour, it’s getting the treatment at the right level that’s the hard part.

    But your XXY guys, all diagnosed as adults, are presenting fairy tale events. Claiming they liked their tits, and they were just complying to society, when in fact getting mastectomy if the disease is not severe enough from a doctors viewpoint is almost impossible. Or they like the rounded body shape associated with hypogonadism, but take testosterone that guarantees they won’t have that body shape! Doing a Nicky K D Chaleunphone, arguing in effect both sides of the argument at the same time!

    Adults are not forced to take testosterone therapy and my doctors were not prepared to forcibly treat me way back in the late 1970’s either, I had to choose hormone therapy. All the guys who protest about testosterone therapy and take it, saying they were told they couldn’t be “real men” without it, are telling porkies, to fit in!

    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.
