Sure, we know the argument will be made but it’s still an idiot argument

Shon’s compelling argument is that the fight for trans liberation is irrevocably tied up with broader anti-capitalist struggles, and explains how transphobia is a direct result of capitalist society.

Quite how who owns the electricity company makes people hate, or fear, those whose gender conflicts with their biology is difficult to divine.

But, you know, capitalism is puppy dog tails, anti-capitalism is sugar and spice. What else do we need to call in evidence?

  1. How does this person think trans people faired under other systems?

    I’m pretty sure the Soviets, Cubans, Cambodians, and Chinese weren’t/aren’t anywhere near as tolerant as capitalist societies ate.

  2. Barely a day goes by without another hostile article about trans people

    “If you run into an asshole in the morning, you ran into an asshole. If you run into assholes all day, you’re the asshole.”

    the framing will insinuate that trans people, and trans women especially, are sinister, predatory, and must be kept away from women and children.

    I would never insinuate that, I’d state it openly.

    Now we get to Schrodinger’s Weirdos:

    The fixation on “trans issues” in the British media – The Times alone published nearly two articles a day between January and May of this year, a group that is less than 1% of the UK population

    They’re just an eeny teeny minority so how dare you criticise them! Also please immediately change our entire society to accomodate their delusions and make sure impressionable kiddies can get artificial hormones on the NHS or you’re a Hitler or something. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

    the struggles that I and my trans siblings encounter remain largely unknown to the wider public.

    Have you tried not being trans?

    The first line of the book is: “The liberation of trans people would improve the lives of everyone in our society”,

    Lol.

    Not only that, it’s a book for anyone who cares about building a fairer and more just society.

    My pain is constant and sharp and I do not hope for a better world for anyone, in fact I want my pain to be inflicted on others. I want no one to escape, but even after admitting this there is no catharsis, my punishment continues to elude me and I gain no deeper knowledge of myself; no new knowledge can be extracted from my telling. This confession has meant nothing.

    Very amusing, comrade. Now please face the wall.

  3. Yes, this silly obsession doesn’t make much sense but is quite funny. If you ever have the misfortune of reading the wikipedia entry for Transhumanist Politics – you will notice an unlimited amount of meaningless drivel.

  4. Steve – you are Patrick Bateman in disguise and I claim my £5 reward.

    I’d write more but I have to return some videos.

  5. I’m pretty sure there’s plenty of nations/cultures around who aren’t capitalist, certainly not Western-Capitalist, and which have very definite notions about the whole Trans thing.

    And while liberation is a part of it, it’s generally translated as “a shallow grave”. ymmv and all that.

  6. transphobia is a direct result of capitalist society

    Excellent, let’s replace capitalism with a socialist totalitarian regime. Bagsy I get Ministry For Eradicating Anti-Revolutionary Deviants.
