This is an amazing (and long) interview with the founder of Transwidow Voices - so much of interest in there - I’ve only lifted one quote as it expresses so much of what has been concerning me over the last couple of years and found difficult to put into words but the whole article is well worth a read - very eloquent.
‘ For ‘born this way’ to be true, it is necessary for ‘the transgender child’ to exist. We are expected to believe that the middle-aged male transitioner, both a husband and a father, has so much in common with teenage girls who are struggling with their sexuality and gender identity. This expectation is why many of our exes become very vocal in supporting the idea of children and young people being ‘transgender.’ They may even say that they do not want gender-nonconforming children now to go through what they suffered in childhood, but, more often than not, even that is a total misrepresentation of history. Indeed, our exes often had seemingly normal, otherwise happy, gender-conforming childhoods, going from boyhood into manhood. Additionally, men with autogynephilia do not want the world to know that, in reality, they are motivated by a form of fetishism.10 To this end, they deny the existence of autogynephilia, despite the overwhelming evidence to the contrary. And so, if ‘the transgender child’ exists, then social and medical transition for middle-aged heterosexual males cannot be a fetish, they argue, because children cannot have fetishes. I have even had it implied to me that I am sexualizing children themselves by talking about autogynephilia exhibited by adult heterosexual males.
