H/T Lynn Conway.
As part of her news blurb about Joe Fudgepacker’s paper not being satisfied with just his own transphobia or the transphobia apologism of Dominic Holden (as scrivener for Laurelurleen Ramseyerogovitch) but now deciding to import the sugar-coated exterminationism of Alice Dreger, Lynn noted:
Raised by anti-abortionist Catholic zealots, Alice Dreger is a part-time faculty member in the Jesuit-founded Medical Humanities and Bioethics Program at Northwestern University. Her mantra is “Why not change minds instead of bodies”, thus it should come as no surprise that she is rabidly opposed to gender transitions.
A de facto acolyte of Joe the Rat?
Could it be?
When I was growing up, I sometimes spent Saturdays with my family on anti-abortion picket lines. My parents were Right-to-Life activists, and my mother was a Feminist for Life.
Raised by womb-controllers who co-opted words such as “feminist” and “life,” eh? That would kinda explain how she justifies what Michael Bailey has done, no? After all, he claims not to be transphobic (not to mention claiming that The Man Who Would be Queen is science and is not fraud.)
It all depends on what your own personal lexicon says the definition of the word “is” is.
Ditto for “not,” I suppose.
Double ditto for “science.”
My sister is now a conservative Roman Catholic nun and a physician….
Didn’t Dreger claim to be on Galileo’s team?
I heard a young Women’s Studies student next to me say to her friend, “This Dreger woman is terrible!” I whispered to her, “Um, I’m that Dreger woman, and I don’t recognize the person they are describing.”
WWL(eo XIII)D? Not look in the mirror apparently.
I worked for five years as a mortgage broker….
In 2011, I think that’s actually the most damning admission of all – but, I digress.
Don’t believe the existence of the neo-Raymond quote?
Answer: Because you have but one body over which you have any right whatsoever to exercise control over not changing something/anything – namely, your own. You start fucking with other people’s right to exercise control over their bodies (be it direct – such as the Joe Fudgepacker paper-consecrated hit piece against trans youth – or indirectly – by cranking out a piece of intellectual fraud to defend a proven anti-transsexual fraud), and you have no right to act surprised when they fuck back…
but, of course, acting surprised (topped by the cherry of Oscar-worthy performances as victim) is what bullies always do – especially when they are better-funded than those who they bully.
