Yeah. I mean, she has done a large body of good work, especially for crossdressers, who tend to get the very grimy end of the stick even when it comes to trans folk standing up for trans rights. Her boards tend to be remarkably BS free and at least allow the discussion of theory, not like either the "OMG! Shoes!" of something like crossdressers.com or the deep deep angst of Trueselves. And I don't want it to sound like one (infuriating, dismissive) post is license to say that some one is a false ally, or not a "real" ally, or invalidates everything else they've done. (That said, this isn't the first time something helen has put on her blog has sent me around the bend, and I still think of her as a friend of mine.)

I'm not even sure that this particular issue is where I want to draw my doctrinal line in the sand, and say "no cis, no ally" ever and forever.

But this particular post? It's just wrong on a ton of levels.

Genderbitch: In ur gender, revealing ur privilege


This is a blog. About transsexuality, feminism, misogyny, transphobia, homophobia, GLBT stuff and etcetera (check my tags for more on that). This is also an angry blog.

You might see me as slightly antagonistic. Oh well. I incite because I am trying to push people into thinking, discussing and breaking out of the stagnant bullshit of privilege. Which needs a nice firm kick quite a bit. Sometimes to the head. If I need a nice firm kick too, make sure to distribute it because well, I'm not immune to privilege either. XD

Welcome to my space. Take your shoes off, stay a while. Use the fucking coasters.
