If it’s on a list, it must be true


And the longer the list, the truer it must be! This gentleman has compiled a list of all the things “women” do not have, and while it starts out reflecting generic gender critical falsehoods, it gets weirder and weirder.

Whoa. Women don’t have muscle mass or lung capacity or hemoglobin? No bones? No hands? What kind of list is this?

Then I realized this person hasn’t actually ever met a woman, and is instead describing a jellyfish. He’s also probably resentful because the jellyfish spurned his romantic advances.

    I would bet hard cash that my ex, mother of my child and indubitably a woman, could kick this guy’s ass up and down, crush his fingers in her grip, and make his best stride look like baby steps, all without breaking a sweat. Publishing this drivel only serves to make this guy look like a moron.

    He’s an ignoramus boob if he thinks all women are weaklings while ignoring the existence of actual strong, muscular women who can render this male weakling into a mangled pile of flesh and bones.

    I suggest he gets amorous with a Portuguese “man” o’ war. Actually that would be an instance of polyamory because the colonial thing and I guess isn’t really a jellyfish. If he’s monogamous a box jelly should do the trick for his manly man penis.

  4. tuatara says

    I guess the list of things that that specific ‘man’ doesn’t have begins with ‘female partner’ (inflatables not included) – thanks for the morning laugh feralboy12!

    Based on that list, the jellyfish probably has a darned good case for sexual harassment. Hey, maybe the jellyfish filed a complaint, and this guy is just whining about it?

  6. drew says

    Women do not have scare quotes.

    The fact he uses them says more than a little about him. Also the importance (and number) of penis in his list.

  7. John Small Berries says

    Do you think maybe the inclusion of things like “bones” and “ligaments” might be a sign that perhaps this post is not meant to be taken seriously?

    He is wrong about testosterone levels as well as most of his list.

    Do Women Have Testosterone? What It Does, Normal Levels …https://www.healthline.com › … › Sexual Health

    Jun 10, 2019 — Generally, women’s bodies make about 1/10th to 1/20th of the amount of testosterone as men’s bodies. Remember. Every person has testosterone.

    Male testosterone levels on average are not 110X of female. He’s off by an order of magnitude.
    There is also quite a lot of variation in both men and women in testosterone levels.
    Some women are naturally high testosterone.

    Male testosterone levels go down with age.

    Nearly 39 percent of men ages 45 years and older have low testosterone, also known as hypogonadism, which is generally defined as a level below 300 nanograms per deciliter. And the prevalence of low testosterone grows with age: estimates show that it affects 12 percent of men in their 50s, 19 percent in their 60s, 28 percent in their 70s, and 49 percent in their 80s, Paolone says.

    A lot of males have testosterone levels close to zero, mostly but not always older men.

  9. says

    @raven: Just listening to radio ads demonstrates that at least some men have insufficient testosterone† There are at least three local “clinics” with ads seeking patients witht “low-T,” and describing its symptoms as basically a Loss of Manliness. They just never get around to explaining how that manifests in non-heterosexual relationships, despite all of the other horrifying Cleaver-family examples…

    &dagger: Do not get me started on WADA’s presumptive-cheating levels of testosterone — levels with dubious support as to the general European urbanized population, let alone elite athletes (whether they “cheat” or not).

    Has anyone else looked up “autogynephilia”? It seems like a strange feature for him to brag about.

    “Autogynephilia” is a diagnosis invented by a psychiatrist who wanted to convince people that trans women are perverts. It’s one of a number of “diagnoses” slapped on trans women that arise out of the psychiatric consensus that trans people are by nature mentally ill. (And, in particular, incompetent to know themselves.)

    Sort of like the way “drapetomania” was a diagnosis invented to prove that slaves (USA) who ran away from their “owners” were simply mentally ill.

  12. says

    aretha franklin is a cis autogynephile for singing “you make me feel like a natural woman.” think shania twain makes the cut for that one too? i think that’s a funny way of looking at that BS diagnosis, saw a tumblr dedicated to the joke once.

  13. dangerousbeans says

    @John Morales
    Autoandrophilia was included as an option by Blanchard, but only because people kept bugging him about it. I would bet he sees women as sexless and just receptive to men. That seems pretty baked into his true transsexual/autogynophile garbage as well.

  14. Artor says

    @ John Small Berries #11, I think the inclusion of those words shows that the poster should not be taken seriously, but I’m not convinced he intended the obvious humor.

    @16 Allison

    So it sounds like autogynephilia is the same as Rapid Onset Gender Dysphoria.

    Which doesn’t actually exist.
    It was made up by a Transphobic creep to explain why it is OK to hate and discriminate against Trans people.

    Rapid-onset gender dysphoria controversy – Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org › wiki › Rapid-onset_gender_d…

    The rapid-onset gender dysphoria controversy centers around the concept of rapid-onset gender dysphoria (ROGD), proposed in a 2018 study to be a subtype of …
    and
    It has not been recognized by any major professional association as a valid mental health diagnosis, and use of the term has been discouraged by the American Psychological Association, the American Psychiatric Association, the World Professional Association for Transgender Health, and other medical organizations due to a lack of reputable scientific evidence, major methodological issues in existing research, and likelihood to cause harm by stigmatizing gender-affirming care.[2][3][4][5]

    Something I heard many years ago:

    “All girls are girls, no matter how many penises they have. That said, if a girl has more than six, while still a girl, she may also secretly be a Lovecraftian horror sex monster.”

  17. moonslicer says

    OK, another example of the same old, same old tired argument that completely misses the point. I’ve said it I don’t know how many times before, so why not say it here one more time? At this point there are no telling how many “anti-transers” I’ve encountered, either on line or in person, and I have yet to encounter a single one who actually understands what a transgender person is.

    I sometimes compare our situation to that of biologists: anti-evolutionists tend not to have the first idea what evolution is about, which means they’re not really attacking evolution. They’re attacking what they mistakenly believe evolution to be. That’s the case with us. Our enemies aren’t actually attacking transgenderism. They’re attacking what they mistakenly believe transgenderism to be.

    So this fellow is taking the usual tack: he’s giving a list of the (purported) physical differences between male and female, the objective being to demonstrate to a transgender woman, e.g., you’ve got this and this and this in common with men, you lack this and this and this that women have. Ergo, you’re a man. Now why don’t you just shut up?

    He’s working with the notion that a transgender woman was in fact born like Joe Biden, but she’s somehow got the idea in her head that she’s really like Kamala Harris, and since she “identifies as” female like Harris, she truly is like Harris. And he uses this argument to prove how unspeakably stupid transgender people must be if that’s what we believe.

    Except that he’s missed the point. That’s not in fact what we believe, that’s not what we are and that’s not what we’re claiming to be. No need to disprove a point that we’re not defending and that in fact we specfically deny. A man cannot become a woman nor can a woman become a man.

    The point he’s missing is of course what’s called “gender identity”. He skips over that because he doesn’t understand what it is, and in fact if the day ever comes when he does cop on to what it is, he’ll see what it is to be transgender and he’ll realize that he just needs to shut his mouth and stop making a fool of himself.

    It is my gender identity that makes me transgender, and if anybody wants to talk about transgender people that’s the facet of our nature they need to address. I’ve told anti-transers before, “If you want to understand transgender people, you need to look beyond the crotch.” There’s no need to argue about testosterone levels or muscle mass or DNA or any of the rest of that stuff because it’s beside the point.

    And no, I’m not a “biological male”. I’m a biological transgender female. And no, I’m not “male-bodied”. I’m transgender female bodied. My gender identity is in my brain, my brain is in my body, which means that my brain and my gender identity are as biological as anything else about me.

    But the anti-transers are never going to understand stuff like this because they don’t want to. They’re too busy trying to prove to us that we’re not what we’re not claiming to be.

    Four penises on one body is the most I’ve seen in furry art. Though that particular character wasn’t apparently transfeminine (unlike about half of all fur art), but a male-conforming anthro echidna.

    Wait, autogynephilia? Every man should have that?!

    So, if I want to be considered a man I should love my non-existent vagina? I should wish to have a vagina and feel attraction to it? Love the idea of having a vagina?

    I mean, I have everything else on the list, just not as much testosterone (110X is a bit too much, unless this is homeopathic notation in which case it is far too little).

    What a weird post.

    So… women don’t have oxygen, lungs, muscles, a skeleton, hands?!
    OMG. This knob has mistaken a Real Doll for a real woman.

    @26- jo1storm
    Yeah I think some initially fell into that confusing framing where men, from the apparent POV of the list maker, have autogynephilia as a trait. But on further reflection it should be read as so the list maker meant that women, in an anti-trans framing, don’t have autogynephilia. It was a head scratcher for me at first.

  22. birgerjohansson says

    Sharks (the male ones) are said to have two penises. So the exact number varies a bit among vertebrates.

  23. says

    This strikes me as someone attempting satire. To be 100% sure I’d have to see more of his posts, but he has to have been giggling to himself when he wrote “bones”.

  24. woozy says

    [blockquote]He’s just a terrible writer. That was almost certainly shorthand for different bone density.[/blockquote]

    But who IS he?

    To me the most likely explanation is that he is snarkily/sarcastically compiling, for ridicule, a list of stupid things transphobes have claimed (or implied) women don’t have.

    Then again I’ve underestimated stupidity before.

  25. Walter Solomon says

    Women don’t have Dr. Leonard “Bones” McCoy of the USS Enterprise. That’s worth our tears.
