World War T disappears up its fundamental aperture

Contemporary Who? Whom? thinking is highly appealing because it doesn't require reasoning from objective principles, which can make your brain heat up. All you need to know is which categories of people are on your team, and then you know who is right and who is wrong, because your team is good and the other team is bad.

On the other hand, there is also the urge to incorporate onto Your Team as baroque a set of teammates as possible to prove the undeniable goodness of your team, as exemplified by the ongoing World War T.

From the San Francisco Examiner:
Transgender, women’s rights advocate and prominent Twitter engineer charged with rape  
By Jonah Owen Lamb @Jonahowenlamb
A prominent advocate for transgender and women's rights in the tech world has been charged with raping her wife, The San Francisco Examiner has learned. 
Dana McCallum, a senior engineer at Twitter who speaks and writes about women's and transgender-rights and technology issues, was arrested Jan. 26 and booked into County Jail on suspicion of five felonies, according to the Sheriff's Department. 
McCallum, 31, who was born a male, openly identifies as a female and whose legal name is Dana Contreras, was charged Jan. 29 with five felonies, including three counts of spousal rape, one count of false imprisonment and one count of domestic violence, according to the District Attorney's Office. She has since pleaded not guilty. 
Despite the charges, McCallum's attorney, John Runfola, says the case is simply about money. 
"I'm just disgusted that, you know, this is going on," Runfola said. "Dana is an employee [at Twitter] and is about to come into a large amount of money. ... This whole thing is about money." 
The couple had been separated, he said, but were still having sexual relations. 
McCallum served her wife with divorce papers the day before the incident, Runfola said. ...
According to McCallum's profile on the online publication Model View Culture, for which she wrote about transgender people and women in tech in January 2013, "Dana McCallum has been working in software engineering and engineering leadership since 2000. As an advocate for women in technology and the LGBT community, Dana helped create advocacy teams at Twitter and other companies, served as a delegate on women's issues in India, and speaks regularly at events focused on women and LGBT people in tech." 
A December story in Business Insider listed McCallum as one of the most important gay people in the tech world. 

I don't want to be too graphic here, but this question is inevitable: Raped with what?

The various "T" terms seem to be used pretty loosely. Part of the point is to separate "gender" from any mooring in physicality; ergo, you can't be sure this T-woman has gone to the trouble of having her wang sawn off.

Sounds like a case of autogynephilia.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blanchard%27s_transsexualism_typology

Of course I assume that the term autogynephilia is highly anti-PC.

It seems to me that autogynephilia is a narcissistic disorder common to middle aged moderately successfully but one time aspiring top alpha-males.

It is like "Oh well I can't be the TED NUGENT of alpha-males, but at least I can remake myself as the TED NUGENT of lesbians.

Who knows it may all be linked to middle age drops in testosterone levels linked in part to severe depression. Apparently Bruce/Bridgette Jenner's "transgender coach" Rene Richards, the former Dr Richard Raskind, is recommending trying anti-depressants before doing anything "drastic". Sounds like hard learned wisdom.

Hell, if I was married to that crazy ball busting, emasculating, fame whore, harpy Kris Jenner, I might be suffering from a drop in testosterone levels myself.

I believe that transgender basically means crossdresser, although there may be exceptions.

Steve, you should look into Ray Blanchard and J. Michael Bailey. They have some politically incorrect HBD based theories on the subject:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/J._Michael_Bailey
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Man_Who_Would_Be_Queen
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blanchard%27s_transsexualism_typology

Blanchard divided trans women into two different groups: so-called "homosexual transsexuals," whom Blanchard says seek sex reassignment surgery to romantically and sexually attract (ideally heterosexual) men, and "autogynephilic transsexuals" who purportedly are sexually aroused at the idea of having a normative female body.

Autogynephilia ... is a term coined in 1989 by Ray Blanchard, to refer to "a man's paraphilic tendency to be sexually aroused by the thought or image of himself as a woman.

There is also an ongoing controversity between lesbian transwomen (heterosexual, male crossdressers) and lesbians. The former accuse lesbians who wouldn't sleep with them to be transphobic...

So expect feminist lesbian attacks on this guy.

DCThrowback said...

Not all (or even most?) transsexuals receive the "unkindest" cut, so my guess is that McCallum was still packing heat, so to speak.

A straight man, trapped inside a woman (who is technically still a man).

He became a lesbian? He's 31 yet has worked in software engineering since '00? That he was sent as a "delegate" on women's rights to India is really cringe inducing, who, along with Gessen at Radio Liberty, are the kind of people held up before the rest of the world as being representative of American 'values'. It's an ongoing embarrassment to every person in this country. Meanwhile, in this city a popular free weekly paper that's all over the place has as it's front page story a transgender MMA fighter. Truly the burning issue of the century. Claiming to be an American is less appealing than it's ever been. At one time there was a certain prestige attached to being a US citizen. Now it's becoming a stigma.

Yeah, I agree with the previous comment that "she" could still be a he but only identifies as a she. From what I understand, your sex (or "gender") is based on how you identify yourself, not by anything objective. I can be masculine, heterosexual, have only a penis, and according to the new rules if I identify myself as a woman, I'm a woman. Transgender doesn't necessarily mean transsexual.

"According to the San Francisco police, the state of California classifies rape as penial on vaginal assault. They were not able to reveal any of the specific details about the suspect or the victim, but said that in order for a rape to have occurred, it would have to meet the aforementioned criteria."

Warrior Bunny on 04/11/2014 at 12:20 PM --
"Penises are NOT relevant. The alleged rapist may have a penis, but her penis IS feminine. This fact is much more important to understand than whether the female penis was used for raping a privileged cis woman. Please. Stop. You are a vaginist, and your words erase identities, and erasing someone's identity is EXACTLY like killing them."

Obviously, she raped her wife with his penis.
But seriously, folks, did I not see a recent newspaper or AP report of a middle school kid who "identified" as female and so was allowed by the school board to use the girl's locker room? The paper (I have forgotten the source and location of the incident) solemnly reported that the kid had caused a ruckus when "she exposed her male genitalia" to the girls.

RE: Who?Whom?,

It's interesting to see how even the more radical thinkers of the past are now no longer without sin. Here's a recent review of Joanna Russ' "classic" Lesbian SF novel, THE FEMALE MAN:

"However—wow, can I see where that treads very, very close to transphobic territory. It doesn’t help that the attitude of second wave feminism toward transwomen was negative at best, violently hostile at worst—it doesn’t make me terribly inclined to give the benefit of the doubt. So, reader be forewarned. It’s a very short section of the book, but it’s there, and it’s got some uncomfortable tension for me as a critic/reader in 2011."

No doubt also has also worked to get more women involved in technology.

But Ms. McCallum shows perhaps a more effective way to achieve better numbers of women in the industry.

Take the promising men who are already there and just call them "women" and they'll be able to benefit from all the special mentoring and support programs reserved for "women."

Ms McCallum even shows that this doesn't necessarily get in the way of dating or a relationship with a natural woman. But it still doesn't protect one from the false accusations and legal manipulations so popular among the crazier cis-women breeders.

Many feminists cry rape from mere glances and words. Surely he's sill capable of that.

I will not refer to him as her no matter how he mutilates himself. No more than I would refer to him as a 'table' if he fused his limbs into that position and asked people to dress him in table linens.

True story- went on a "return run" this week, returning some items my wife didn't want before the close of this month's credit card billing cycle. It's a psychological thing for me, cushions the blow of an inevitably large statement, plus even the simplest women's clothing items are surprisingly expensive.

One of the returns was at the local WalMart, which we both broke down and started patronizing. It's not their prices, so much as other stores will sometimes simply not carry the exact tool or houseware you need. Our Walmart lives up to its national reputation, which is amazing since their employee pool is drawn from the exact same community which produces the much more presentable cashiers at Target.

Anyway, waited in the returns line till a 50's-ish beat-down looking woman asked if she could help us. Except the voice was the strong baritone of a 50's-ish man. But the name tag said "Ella". And it had robin's egg blue nail polish on. And double-C/single-D size cleavage (paying for the high-impact items first, I guess). My kid was in tow but didn't say anything (he was recovering from a cold, so maybe was blessedly oblivious).

I wonder what "Ella" does for fun at night, and who or what dwells in its basement. Does Ella throw a party for it? Does Ella do the tuck dance when getting ready? Maybe while playing Escape ("If you like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain..."). I know I'd like listening to Escape on my cassette recorder stereo boombox if I were doing the tuck dance...

And all I got for the effort was a lousy refund of $4.73 ...

Speaking of Silence of the Lambs, it's interesting to note that Thomas Harris took pains in the original (late 80's) novel to emphasize serial killer "Buffalo Bill" was not really gay, he just thought he was. Harris had already had a novel turned into a movie by then, and so he probably knew who he would have to avoid ticking-off if he wanted any more of that Hollywood money rolling in. And yet the closest real-life counterpart to Harris's most famous creation was Jeffrey Dahmer, an honest-to-goodness, bathhouses-and-all, gay cannibal serial killer.

In the spirit of retroactive non-immunity, though, shouldn't we be hauling Harris before the transgender rights committee for his hateful representation of a transgender man in Silence of the Lambs? And what about the creators of Hangover II? The single punchiest gross-out gag of the last 10 years surely must be Ed Helms's reaction to learning what he did the other night with a Thai boy-woman prostitute. Yet by playing up the disgusting-ness of the situation for cheap laughs rather than exploring the situation with more tenderness and sympathy, I think the Hangover's producers must certainly be guilty of transgender-phobia, homophobia, and also maybe racism.

I'm disappointed in you, Mr. Sailer. Even in complete ignorance of McCallum's physiology, a little investment of imagination presents many ways in which rape can be accomplished regardless of physical attributes.

The ending is just a cheap shot, the sort of rhetorical stunt I expected you to not need to stoop to. I know you can do better than this.

Im sorry but this article is ridiculous. A cis person CANNOT be raped by a trans person. Trans people do not have the required institutional power to rape their oppressors. Cis people may feel they have had an unwanted sexual experience with a trans person (usually the result of transphobia) but it's privilege-blind stupidity to call it rape. It's like white people complaining that they experience racism.

I'm sorry, but trying to keep track is making my brain heat up, but alas no other body parts. It is about the unsexiest story I've ever heard.

"As a trans (male-female) woman, the Harvard Business School grad always wanted to work in programming and information technology.

Contreras married her wife, Melissa, in 2007 before going through the male-female transition process. She currently lives in Indiana with Melissa and her four children."

I can't tell whether post #57 (11:47 AM) is intended to be a parody or not. I've heard much the same claims made about various 'minority' groups and racism.

Rape doesn't require 'institutional power', my good man. It only requires forcing people into unwanted sex. Or, having sex with people legally incapable of giving consent, which is a trickier issue.

I'd like to see you tell a female rape victim that she wasn't really raped because her attacker was a transsexual. I'd like to see you tell her that to her face. Or, for that matter, tell a raped man that he wasn't actually raped because his attacker decided they were a man/woman in a woman's/man's body, respectively.

No jury in the world would convict them.

OT: The neocons are mad at the Ukrainian army because it doesn't want to shoot at fellow Ukrainians. The soldiers are joining the insurgents as soon as they get in contact with them. This has now happened dozens of times.

During the Maidan protests the neocons were mad at Yanukovich for not wanting to shoot at the protestors. They pitted two groups of Ukrainians against each other, but for several months these two groups were refusing to fight. So foreign snipers had to be called in.

The conditions are ripe for a repeat of that. If Greystone guys or whoever shell Slavyansk, real war will start. It's in neocons' interest to do that, so I'm guessig they will do it. They'll blame Putin for it. There's a precedent beyond those Maidan snipers. When the neocon-backed Chechens blew up some apartment buildings in Moscow, Western media blamed Putin. I think "Putin did it" is still the MSM party line on that point.

Anyway, there's an impasse right now. The Nuland-installed junta can get Ukranian soldiers to the frontline, but it can't make them fight. They're unwilling to shoot at fellow Ukrainians, they're surrendering their weapons without a fight. Enter shelling by non-Ukrainian mercs? Aerial bombardment? I've seen a rumor about Croatian pillots being in the Ukraine right now.

also i want to know what woman would marry this person. i thought lesbians hated transexuals.

as to steve's question, most male transexuals retain their penises. they change the rest of themselves, but they usually do not give up their penises. the ones who go all the way, are usually attracted to men, and wish to find and date straight males. they would not marry a woman.

considering the reported details here, i would assume this person still has their penis. not necessarily, but those are the usual dynamics.

Dahmer, on the other hand, killed about 20 people, ate parts of some of them, kept other parts as trophies. His fridge at the time of his arrest was as bad as any horror movie has come up with.

Thomas Harris was gay.

DCF said the child came into DCF custody in 2009 when she was eleven or 12. . . Katz said that during this time, the juvenile had a long history of assaulting her peers and staff. That’s why the Commissioner agreed late last year to send her to a facility for girls in Massachusetts.

"At the time," Katz said, "I said, I’m running out of options. [The teen] engaged in some of her typical behaviors assaulting youth, grabbing hair, punching; but the one that really was the final straw was the one at the end of January."

That’s when the teen got into a fight with staff. Katz said the teen fractured a staff member’s jaw and temporarily blinded her....

Katz refuted the claim by some of the teen’s advocates that she is being singled out because she is a transgender female, and that DCF doesn’t know "what to do with her."


I know--place her in the home of her most vocal advocate!

"Raped with what?"

The male gaze.

This story shows how "women" can get ahead in the tech field: be born a male.

And on the Gay Hollywood side of things:

According to the lawsuit filed in federal court in Hawaii, plaintiff Michael Egan, who was named in a press release by his lawyers, was 17 when he was forcibly sodomized by Singer, among other accusations.

“Defendant, BRYAN JAY SINGER, manipulated his power, wealth, and position in the entertainment industry to sexually abuse and exploit the underage Plaintiff through the use of drugs, alcohol, threats, and inducements which resulted in Plaintiff suffering catastrophic psychological and emotional injuries. Defendant Singer did so as part of a group of adult males similarly positioned in the entertainment industry that maintained and exploited boys in a sordid sex ring. A Hollywood mogul must not use his position to sexually exploit underage actors.”

Variety reports,

Marc Collins-Rector, the former chairman of Digital Entertainment Network, an ambitious Internet startup that sputtered in the dotcom bust of 2000, is also cited in the Singer lawsuit, although he is not named as a defendant. He is accused of initiating the sexual abuse of Egan and arranging for Singer to assault Egan at a house in Encino, Calif.

Collins-Rector is a registered sex offender, having plead guilty in 2004 to luring minors across state lines for sexual acts.

To all the bigots, go back to the 1950s where your backwards mentality belongs. How about actually being empathetic humans and trying to understand a group you are prejudging."

Post-judging, idiot. Transexuals are sick deviants, as evidenced by their actions. If you are one, then you are also a sick deviant. Certainly though, you are a ridiculous clown.

"Despite the charges, McCallum's attorney, John Runfola, says the case is simply about money.
"I'm just disgusted that, you know, this is going on," Runfola said. "Dana is an employee [at Twitter] and is about to come into a large amount of money. ... This whole thing is about money."

Not quite as interesting as 'with what' but I can't help thinking WELCOME TO THE JOYS OF MARRIAGE.

This proves the need for gay prenups. And just like gay weddings tend to be lavish, gay divorce will likely be equally spectacular.

And gay palimony. If you haven't already herald of it, you heard it here first.

STAN: I want to be a woman. From now on, I want you all to call me 'Loretta'.

REG: What?

LORETTA: It's my right as a man.

JUDITH: Well, why do you want to be Loretta, Stan?

LORETTA: I want to have babies.

REG: You want to have babies?!

LORETTA: It's every man's right to have babies if he wants them.

REG: But... you can't have babies.

LORETTA: Don't you oppress me!

REG: I'm not oppressing you, Stan. You haven't got a womb! Where's the foetus going to gestate? You going to keep it in a box?

LORETTA: (crying)

JUDITH: Here! I - I've got an idea. Suppose you agree that he can't actually have babies, not having a womb, which is nobody's fault, not even the Romans', but that he can have the right to have babies.

FRANCIS: Good idea, Judith. We shall fight the oppressors for your right to have babies, brother. Sister. Sorry.

REG: What's the point?

FRANCIS: What?

REG: What's the point of fighting for his right to have babies when he can't have babies?

FRANCIS: It is symbolic of our struggle against oppression.

REG: Symbolic of his struggle against reality.

"I don't want to be too graphic here, but this question is inevitable:"

I'm disappointed in you, Mr. Sailer. Even in complete ignorance of McCallum's physiology, a little investment of imagination presents many ways in which rape can be accomplished regardless of physical attributes.

The ending is just a cheap shot, the sort of rhetorical stunt I expected you to not need to stoop to. I know you can do better than this.


My thoughts exactly.

I wonder if in 20 years, we discover that the gender gap has been filled in large part by trans-women, especially in the tech field. This reminds me of how few are remarking on how the racial gap has in large part been narrowed at the elite level by blacks of African or Carribbean origin, like Colin Powell, Barack Obama and Eric Holder.
Just as blacks descended from slaves have a certain resentment for these other blacks, I wonder if biological women will have resentment for these trans-women? Will the coalition crack? Will the first female Fields medalist or Chess World Champion be transgendered? Will people remark on this or will it be taboo?

Most modern male-to-female transgenders keep their penises. The last statistic I saw said more than 70% plan to keep the penis even after surgery.

"Gender reassignment surgery" can be considered "complete" after facial feminization surgery and/or breast implants, which is why many states that officially recognize gender changes no longer require that the genitals also be altered. Many trannies are hetero male autogynephiles, so they want to keep their dicks.

I was talking to an acquaintance about a girl I was friendly with in college that he works with now. I asked how Jennifer was doing. "Oh, didn't you hear, he goes by Jeremy now?"

I mean, I've read about this stuff, but to actually be exposed to something so stupid in person...
