A University of Calgary press release:

As I’ve said a million times, there are two types of M to F transgenders, either extremely effeminate gay hairdresser types who played with girls’ toys from earliest childhood; or totally non-feminine extreme male brain types, like this Professor of Robotic Engineering with the huge jaw who looks like Jon Hamm of Mad Men dressing up in drag for the 12:50 AM sketch of Saturday Night Live because they can’t think of anything else to do and Jon Hamm in drag is at least guaranteed to be kind of funny.

And it’s funnier if Jon Hamm doesn’t shave.

On the outside, Dr. Chris Macnab, PhD, appeared to lead a fulfilling life as an associate professor researching robotics in the Schulich School of Engineering. But it wasn’t until she began living as a woman that she felt truly whole and happy.

“When I presented as a straight, white, male professor other people assumed I was ‘normal,’ but I was living an exhausting performance and eventually my brain broke down,” says Macnab.

“The new me enjoys a balanced, whole, integrated, and happy brain. Even though living my natural female self is effortless for me, other people struggle to comprehend that I’m far healthier than before.”

Macnab points out that a lack of acceptance for her identity is also a systemic problem. According to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5), being transgender is still classified as a mental disorder.

“All six psychiatrists I saw immediately told me I was delusional without ever asking me a single question about my childhood, my life experiences, or my sexuality. They wanted me to take anti-psychotics for the rest of my life,” says Macnab.

“Identifying as gay was removed from the DSM only after a lot of political action and protests, but there’s still a gap with how psychiatrists treat people. I don’t feel safe and I’m not sure that I have all the rights that I’m supposed to have.”

In contrast, you never hear about any mildly masculine NPR Announcer-types with gentle indoor voices announcing they are really a girl on the inside.

  5. Altai says:

    Because one route to this is through a cross-dressing and autogynephilia fetish. And guys who look like John Hamm tend to have more testosterone and thus higher sex drives. Couple this with a tendency towards obsessive thoughts like one might find in a high functioning autistic or near autistic person like a professor of Robotics and you get the Sailer type. Being ~50+ might also be a factor since caring what others think declines with age and a lot of these men are divorced with their children now grown so I suppose feel like they’re not imploding their family doing it now. He is also at the apex of his career, so no danger of stunting promotion with this.

    This man is getting off making everyone around him at work and in public have to participate in his cross-dressing or autogynephilia fetish and is being praised by the media for it. I see this tweet and can’t think of anything but lines from The Second Coming.

    A HOW-TO (“ENGINEERING”) GUIDE FOR ESCAPING INSANITY

    … Reader be forewarned, I am angry and bitter against society and this book contains disturbing and offensive material (quite on purpose) on the topics of sexuality and insanity; I took a hard-nosed engineering approach to the problem rather than thinking about people’s feelings first and foremost

  14. The whole thing is a taunt by aggressive men; if you stand up to their pretending-to-be-a-woman ruse, they will pursue the fight they are craving, sometimes physically, other times judicially. If you don’t stand up to it but instead go along with their “pronouns” and the rest of it, they know they have dominated you into pretending to ignore reality to avoid their wrath. No one really believes he’s a “woman.” The visual is actually funny enough to laugh out loud about.

    The only two ways to win: completely ignore them, or laugh in their faces and give them the mockery this nonsense deserves. Winning is the crucial concept here, because this is indeed a competition for dominance.

    Todd (now Emily) Vanderwerff might count as a counter-example to your generalization. He’d been married to a woman for years, and she’d written about their difficulties in attempting to have children, but there’s otherwise nothing especially masculine or right-wing about him.

  18. This trend has the unfortunate effect of making real men suspicious of certain real women who naturally have a somewhat masculine look. I feel sorry for those women, who already have it rough but in better times still might attract a man. But how many men really want a sexual surprise at the end of their pursuit?

  19. Macnab points out that a lack of acceptance for her identity is also a systemic problem. According to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5), being transgender is still classified as a mental disorder.

    I was watching a one-year old Tracy Twyman youtube and she had a clip from a 2007 network television show where the comic host had a running gag about his house full of asian boy sex slaves that he tortured and killed. The comic host is a person I never heard of and she claimed he is still active although he stopped making jokes about boy sex slave torture murder.

    22:44 – 23:54 is the bit about the asian boy sex slave torture murders

    “A stranger asked me if it’s true that blondes have more fun?”
    “I told him yes, because less is expected of us.”

    I think it’s not what the Professor means, but I read that section as it was so tough being a man I became a woman and downshifted into cruise gear. Of course I suspect it was Ye Olde “Oh, for shame, FOR SHAME! I’m living a lie!” Story.

  42. These people are human sexual mimics. It’s a yugely successful reproductive strategy, even exhibited by disparate species as alien to humans as the cuttlefish https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sexual_mimicry

    This also helps explain why they are so adamant in stating “I’M A WOMAN!!!”. They need to believe it themselves, deeply, if the subterfuge has any chance of working.

    So, not women, not actually degenerate (it’s natural) not special, naturally deceptive, and the reason they want into women’s areas should now be clear. It also explains why alpha males are so disgusted by them (and probably wish they could beat them up), because they compete for reproductive access.

    Just wait, you ain’t seen nuthin’ yet. The war on normalcy requires continuous revolution. When the war on polio was won, the March of Dimes (founded specifically for this purpose) did not declare victory and close its doors. Too many people had staked their identity on it. Too many people had comfortable jobs with the March and mortgages to pay.

    Winning World War G HAD to lead to the opening of World War T (or some other War) in order to continue the Struggle. The Arc of History is long but it bends to the Left. If World War T is won (as it surely must) then they will have to find something else to épater les bourgeois that will shock you even more.

  58. ““Identifying as gay was removed from the DSM only after a lot of political action and protests”

    I always find this argument from trans activists very disingenuous. There is a bit of a difference between being gay and trans, no? One of them doesn’t require you to chop up any organs or to change the way you look and want to be something that you were not born as. To be gay you just need to be attracted to people of your same sex. For men it’s pretty obvious to tell if that’s the case or not, you either get hard or you don’t. It’s pretty straightforward, your body gives you unmistakable signs that that’s what you are. Nothing else is required, you don’t have to make any changes other than telling people “hey, I like dudes/girls”.

    I don’t know enough about sexual psychology to be able to say if either should be classified as a mental illness. But what seems clear to me is that they are not equivalent and just because one is some type of behaviour/desire doesn’t mean the other is the same thing.

He probably wasn’t trying to fool anyone, he was just acting on an impulse that was too powerful to control. Part of that impulse may be to shock people in a very specific way, kind of like a flasher. The second one I ran into was selling guns at a large sporting goods chain. I always avoided him if I was doing business there.

    The world according to the Left:

    1) The only difference between a man and woman is biology. Dudes got penises and women got vajayays. Otherwise they are, mentally, exactly alike. Any difference in social outcomes between the two is merely a matter of socialization and/or discrimination.

    2) Genitalia does not determine your sex. It’s how you feel.

    So in other words there are no physical differences between a man and a woman, and there are no biological differences, either. The only thing that determines your sex is what you say you are. But why you should have any interest in declaring yourself a man or woman, given that the two terms mean exactly nothing, is not explained.

    For our next lesson we’ll discuss why it’s OK to perform seriously invasive, and in some cases irreversible, procedures on young children to transform them for boy to girl (or vice versa) is OK (morally required, actually) but why talk therapy to try to make a gay guy straight is immoral and ought to be illegal.

    As I believe I’ve mentioned in the comments here before, Alice Dreger does a fascinating treatment of this phenomenon in her excellent book “Galileo’s Middle Finger”….the ultra masculine, engineer/mathematician/CEO/military general type tranny are known as “autogynephilic”. They go through life as “men’s men” but secretly harbor a fetish/fantasy life about what it is like to be penetrated as a woman. Eventually, at some point in mid to late middle age, they decide to go through the “transition”.

    Oh, on the contrary R.D. It can solve MANY personal (and financial) problems.

    The most ironic statement by far is this.

    “On the outside, Dr. Chris Macnab, PhD, appeared to lead a fulfilling life as an associate professor researching robotics in the Schulich School of Engineering. But it wasn’t until she began living as a woman that she felt truly whole and happy.”

    Like lawyers, no professor I’ve encountered is truly happy with the lower-rung status as a “associate.” This is the kind of thing that increases your chances of promotion VERY well. Also, this person might actually might possess some talent. The STEM board might cave and just promote a trans-woman instead of an actual woman. That this one might actually be more cognitively worthy. Also, the HR/legal department will LOVE the greatly diminished risk of sexual harassment that a trans-woman brings to the table. Old nerds and decent looking female-colleagues might lead to “problems.”

    I too prefer what we have to what they have. But we will lose the choice. We are getting as sick and degenerate as China was in the 19th Century. And China in the 19th and early 20th Century became easy pickings for foreigners. The comparison to China then is worthwhile to make: We have an opiate (opium) crisis. We have lost our manufacturing/technology edge as did China. We have an enormous trade deficit as did China. We have an educated elite (our own permanent mandarin class) which is completely out of touch with the people it governs and is inefficient and institutionally corrupt. We are in enormous debt, as was China. Our educational institutions leave our population with meaningless educations but we take enormous pride in our credentials. It is clear our ruling class has lost the mandate of heaven.

    China went into a 200 year decline.

    We are a broken people.

    In a nutshell it’s minoritarianism. (Minorities good, virtuous; majorities evil, sinister.)

    Once you go down that track … you are inherently in looney tune land, and on the path to destruction. Because ultimately we’re a social species and need to agree on things–our culture, our norms–to function. And ultimately those things must be things that are “true” in terms of maintaining or enhancing the “fitness” of the society. Minoritarianism is an attack precisely on that agreement.

    The “trans” thing exists as a natural outgrowth of minoritarian ideology. But it has support, precisely because of its “we’re going to rub your nose in it” quality. You–normal majority person– must tolerate not just a particularly minority but one that is openly disgusting and pathologically counter to all the norms–and even aesthetics–required for successful societal reproduction.

    It’s open nation breaking. Hyper-minoritarianism. It’s at the “now, lick my foot” level of minoritarian abuse.

    But surely it won’t be Minoritarianism anymore the second that whites become a minority or a plurality, as Steve and others here have postulated before. Then the script’s going to have to flip, right? The Narrative will become that whites, as a minority, have an obligation to respect the norms and feelings of whatever the majority is, and that the majority needs to be paid homage, and a minority can’t have things all its own way, etc, etc. Or will the Minoritarianism theology remain in place *except* for the small-print provision that none of the hero worship applies to white gentile minorities who are too historically evil to be allowed its blessings?

    @J.Ross

    Democrats openly discuss the silencing of “right wing” “agents”, by making social media companies serve as the government’s speech enforcers. They would gladly give the social media companies monopoly protection in exchange, and in fact the plan actually requires these companies to be near or complete monopolies. That’s why it could actually work. The Democrats see absolutely nothing wrong in this – they advocate for it. The only Democrat who may understand that this is not a good thing is Tulsi Gabbard, who filed a lawsuit against Google for censoring her speech. I suspect she might extend the same protections to those who disagree with her. I could be wrong, I don’t follow her that closely.

    They are happy going from straight white macho to hardcore female lesbian.

    This is the part I can’t wrap my head around – if shim is still boning xher’s (born) female partner with xher’s (lady)penis then is shim a heterosexual or lesbian? There is an aspiring MTF in one of my Facebook discussion groups, who has gone as far as taking hormones, has a collection of killer wigs, and posts photos of xherself in women’s clothes to the group (of 99.999% women) but hasn’t cut off his peenie yet, and whose wife (unbelievably) still hasn’t left him. Every now and then when I mentally try to classify their relationship my brain short circuits but then I remember I don’t truly care that much and wait for him to off himself or to post about how his South Central neighbors finally beat (some sense into) his ass. Like this professor and lots of MTF’s he works in the tech field.

    Online roots of the term TERF originated in the late 2000s but grew out of 1970s radical feminist circles after it became apparent that there needed to be a term to separate radical feminists who support trans women and those who don’t. Many anti-trans feminists today claim it’s a slur, despite what many see as an accurate description of their beliefs. They now prefer to call themselves “gender critical,” a euphemism akin to white supremacists calling themselves “race realists.”
