Manchester, UK. For far too long now a small but vociferous lobby group of transgender queer advocates have held sway in the United Kingdom. Readers, including those in the US, may ask so what?
It is essential to know their basic deception: gender is a range — when we know it is not. They continue to cause more problems than they solve by trying to convince both the United Kingdom and American Governments that someone who cross dresses but retains a penis is a woman.
Unfortunately for all of us, this group has had a disproportionate influence on formulating the standards of care put out by the World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH) on through their application in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM). Probably everyone who visits this site will find examples of their vitriolic attacks on those who disagree with their God given definitions of gender.
Ms. Lynne Featherstone, the UK Minister for Equalities, issued an e-bulletin that includes a call to take an online survey so they can develop an understanding of women's issues.
Subsequent e-bulletins and surveys are expected to focus on specific themes, depending on the feedback they receive.
So, read the document below and take the online survey. You have until 6 May 2011.
Talking points. Make whatever points you want to illustrate that women who are born transsexual simply correct their sex with the objective of integration and assimilation into society.
I suggest, as a minimum, we tell them:
• “Neither correcting your sex or your identity is a mental illness!”
• “Transgender is NOT transsexual and grouping them together is an insult to all women”.

[ direct link ]In my opinion, current Gender Theory is a fictitious, nasty, sociopolitical invention that denies the fundamental differences between transsexual, intersex and crossdressing. It causes far more problems than it solves by grouping everyone under Trans or Transgender.
You can do something to show our rights are eroded and exploited by a group that denies our existence to further their own self interest. You can tell the UK Government it is time to face the truth. [cf. Sidebar]
If you don’t think we need to act, here is a reminder of their twisted thinking taken from a standard reference available only in Gender La La Land:
A Dummies Guide to Gender Theory, Chapter 1: Definitions & MeaningsIf you simply want to correct your external genitalia to match the sex of your brain it is vital that you learn all the correct terms that will be demanded of you by the psychiatrist or psychologist that will earn a huge fee for writing out a note to say you are approved for surgery.
Firstly, of course, you must accept that you have an incurable mental illness that denies you the right of self determination. So here are some of the things you must memorize and repeat back over the minimum period called the real life test that is designed to make you a fully fledged transgender.
You would think you’d start as either a man or a woman but Gender Theory can never be that simple: your perception of how others perceive you must be polished up to brilliant paranoia.
This chapter gives the novice both the correct Gender Theory Approved (GTA) version and the Real World (RW) version that those who have not passed the real life test might inadvertently assume to be true. Study carefully, there will be a test.
CisgenderGender Theory Approved (GTA): Adjective used in the context of gender issues and counseling to refer to a class of gender identities formed by a match between an individual's gender identity and the behavior or role considered appropriate for one's sex.
Real World (RW): A woman that pees sitting down or a man that pees standing up.
TransgenderGTA: Someone who does not identify with conventional categories but combines elements of both or moves between the two; sometimes used as a general, inclusive term, and sometimes as synonymous with or opposed to more specific terms such as transsexual or transvestite etc.
RW: Someone with a penis who wears a dress.
TranssexualGTA: person whose gender self image contradicts with the physical gender he/she was born with or one who has changed or is in the process of changing his/her physical sex by undergoing medical treatment such as hormone replacement therapy (HRT) and/or sex reassignment surgery. There being no contradiction between these definitions as gender is a range.
RW: Someone who intends to have irreversible sex corrective surgery including removing the capacity to reproduce in the assigned birth sex.
WomanGTA: The concept of being a woman is considered to have more challenges, due to society not only viewing women as a social category but also as a felt sense of self, a culturally conditioned or constructed subjective identity. The term "woman" has chronically been used as a reference to and for the female body; this usage has been viewed as controversial by feminists, in the definement of "woman".
There are qualitative analyses that explore and present the representations of gender; feminists challenge the dominant ideologies concerning gender roles and sex. Social identity refers to the common identification with a collectivity or social category which creates a common culture among participants concerned.
According to social identity theory, an important component of the self-concept is derived from memberships in social groups and categories; this is demonstrated by group processes and how inter-group relationships impact significantly on individuals' self perception and behaviors.
The groups to which people belong will therefore provide their members with the definition of who they are and how they should behave in the social sphere.
RW: A person without a penis.
