Because the transgender movement is an anti-women's liberation, colonialist, postmodern, neoliberal, industrialist movement, i.e. a bunch of things I stand against.
It's against women's liberation as apparent from the fact that it celebrates the end of women-only and lesbian-only spaces like Michfest, and opposes new such spaces like WoLF Fest.
It's colonialist in the sense that it supports the colonization of women-only spaces by the oppressor class, men.
It's postmodern in the sense that it contains absurd amounts of brainfuckery with regard to redefinition of simple words like "female" and "woman" based on the subjective feelings of some loons.
It's neoliberal in that it holds individuals above the collective, saying that all spaces have to be inclusive of and tolerant towards all people without regulation, ignoring the fact that this means that the existing power dynamics between certain groups of people will lead to a significant part of the people in that space to be in fact de facto excluded or at least abused in various ways by another part of the people in that space.
It's industrialist in that it depends on modern industry to meet the desired supply of hormone blockers, cross-sex hormones, and various cosmetic surgeries.>>9400
Masculinism literally made me almost kill myself. I would have to be an utter idiot not to support gender abolitionism. I'm somewhere on the extreme lower end of the spectrum with regard to how much I gain from the power the system gives men as a class, and somewhere on the extreme upper end with regard to how much collateral damage I've suffered, so of course I'd like to see that system and and the power redistributed. Additionally, I would also rather kill myself than nonchalantly usurp unjust power given to me over other people.
I understand that this ideology threatens you because you're one of the men who choose to usurp that power. There's no point in calling each other childish (I could just say selfishness like yours is childishness), as we'd just be insulting each other for having different ideologies.>>9401
I agree with radical feminism entirely on my own account. In fact, I do so in spite of peer pressure to reject it, not because of peer pressure to accept it...>>9406
Heh, are you from the cat-v region? Those tend to be extremely evangelical AFAIK. Anyhow...
I don't think there's anything I could learn from a place like pol. I know that their ideology is rooted in seeing themselves as more important and deserving of resources than others, so there's simply a deep, fundamental disagreement there. If I reached my ideologies based on desires of equitable treatment of all, they reached theirs based on self-interest. My own brother is a bit of a poltard fond of Trump and Putin, and I pretty much see exactly that in him... He once told me, tongue-in-cheek but also meaning it, "why aren't you just enjoying your white male privilege instead of fighting against it?">>9407
Eh? It was just meant as a simple observation that young white men who grew up on vidya, porn, and anime are extremely unlikely to end up agreeing with classical feminism like I did. You could call it a false educated guess, but I wouldn't call it prejudice... My guess seems to have been correct so far, although people had analogous experiences.>>9411
I've last been here for a few weeks or so I think, some months ago, maybe half a year? Not sure. I talked about political topics then too, yes. I haven't ever made a thread about loneliness resulting from this though.>>9408
Yeah, I don't agree with all of it but people are actually putting a lot of thought into their responses, which is why Lainchan is at least great as an intellectually stimulating community.
