  1. I wonder what this person thinks of the lesbian phobic “Cotton Ceiling” in which lesbians are told (1.) It’s not a penis if he says it isn’t, and (2.) Lesbians are bigoted for not desiring penis on a pre-op transwoman.

    This is part of a conversation between a trans activists and a lesbian.

    Thanks. So, just to make sure I understand this, a trans woman with a penis, and who has no desire to have a sex change, is not male bodied – correct?

    There is nothing inherently male about a woman’s body, unless she identified things about it as male herself. So, no, I do not consider trans women with penises to be male-bodied, unless that is how they identify.

    This is seriously problematic for lesbians. What you are saying is lesbians – who desire sex with females – are somehow bigoted for that desire, no? That’s exactly what nontrans males say to us.
    Anyway, take care, [redacted lesbian]

    That’s a really nonsensical way of interpreting that. Please don’t put words in my mouth.

    I have not actually been speaking about lesbian-identified women specifically, though they are some of the women who are within the category of queer women.

    Trans women are female. When our female-ness and womanhood is denied, as you keep doing repeatedly, that is transphobic and transmisogynist. As I said earlier, all people’s desires are influenced by an intersection of cultural messages that determine those desires. Cultural messages that code trans women’s bodies as male are transphobic, and those messages influence people’s desires. So cis queer women who are attracted to other queer women may not view trans women as viable sexual partners because they have internalized the message that trans women are somehow male.

    I don’t want to put words in your mouth. I want to understand what you are saying. Trans women may be women, but they are not female. A penis is not a female organ.

    “What trans women are saying is that we are women, and thus should be considered women sexually, and thus be considered viable partners for women who are attracted to women. What cis males are saying is that queer women shouldn’t be exclusively attracted to women, which is completely different. ”

    It’s not completely different to lesbians, and it’s not completely different at all. Lesbians are sexually attracted to females. This does not include trans women with penises.

    What you say makes sense *only* if you believe the fiction that people with penises are *female.* Correct?

    A biological male will NEVER fully be female even if he undergoes sex reassignment surgery. Because the biology and anatomy are still different even after SRS, a biological male will NEVER experience sexual pleasure exactly the way a female does. It NEVER will happen. What does this mean to lesbians who are sexually and emotionally attracted to women? How is the “Cotton Ceiling” any different than homophobic, creepy straight dudes telling lesbians that they are ignorant, prudish bigots for not trying penis, or trying to guilt trip or shame lesbians into sleeping with them?

    Males are not lesbian. If a woman desires male genitalia, whether on non-trans or trans male, she is bisexual or straight. There is nothing wrong with being bisexual or heterosexual.

    Some researchers even did a study to see whether or not males post SRS responded similarly to females. This study just tells us what most people instinctively know already. That is, even after sex reassignment surgery, male sexual response is different than how females respond.

    “Men’s sexual arousal patterns are category-specific: Men typically display significantly greater physiological responses to sexual stimuli depicting members of their preferred gender category. Category-specific patterns of sexual arousal have not been consistently reported in natal women. We used vaginal photoplethysmography to examine patterns of sexual arousal in 11 male-to-female (MtF) transsexuals following sex reassignment surgery (SRS) and in 72 natal women. Subjective arousal was measured with a continuous response lever. Video clips depicting sexual activity between two males, two females, or one male and one female were used as erotic stimuli. All transsexual participants displayed category-specific sexual arousal. Five homosexual transsexual participants (attracted exclusively to males before sex reassignment) showed greater genital and subjective responses to male than to female stimuli, while six nonhomosexual transsexual participants showed the opposite pattern. Vaginal pulse amplitude (VPA) was lower in transsexual participants than in natal women. The mean correlation between VPA and subjective responses was high in nonhomosexual transsexuals, but was significantly lower in homosexual transsexuals and in natal women. One transsexual participant who reported a change in sexual orientation following sex reassignment displayed VPA and subjective responses consistent with her pre-reassignment sexual orientation.

    We conclude that male-to-female transsexuals display male-typical category-specific sexual arousal following SRS, and that vaginal photoplethysmography is a promising methodology for studying patterns of sexual arousal in postoperative transsexuals.

    How can a woman say that she dates “someone I feel a homoromantic and homosexual attraction to” if the person she is dating is male? It’s impossible to do this without completely redefining, or erasing homosexuality which is based on same sex sexual attraction. If homosexuality isn’t based on same sex sexual and emotional attraction, then what is it based on? I could care less who people choose to date, but I won’t remain silent when lesbians are branded bigots for not wanting penis on a transwoman, and redefining homosexuality itself is an Orwellian, new age form of homophobia. In the transified version of sexist lesbian phobia, lesbians earn brownie points by being good trans* allies. It’s just a different version of how straight men and society in general treats lesbians.
