English is the largest of the human tongues, with several times the vocabulary of the second largest language - this alone made it inevitable that English would eventually become, as it did, the lingua franca of this planet, for it is thereby the richest and the most flexible - despite its barbaric accretions…or, I should say, because of its barbaric accretions. English swallows up anything that comes its way, makes English out of it. Nobody tried to stop this process, the way some languages are policed and have official limits…probably because there never has been, truly, such a thing as ‘the King’s English’ - for the King’s English was French. English was in truth a bastard tongue and nobody cared how it grew…and it did! - enormously.

The systematic looting of language can be recognized by the tendency of its users to forgo its nuanced, complex, mid-wifery properties for menace and subjugation. Oppressive language does more than represent violence; it is violence; does more than represent the limits of knowledge; it limits knowledge. Whether it is obscuring state language or the faux-language of mindless media; whether it is the proud but calcified language of the academy or the commodity driven language of science; whether it is the malign language of law-without-ethics, or language designed for the estrangement of minorities, hiding its racist plunder in its literary cheek - it must be rejected, altered and exposed. It is the language that drinks blood, laps vulnerabilities, tucks its fascist boots under crinolines of respectability and patriotism as it moves relentlessly toward the bottom line and the bottomed-out mind. Sexist language, racist language, theistic language - all are typical of the policing languages of mastery, and cannot, do not permit new knowledge or encourage the mutual exchange of ideas.
Ya’ll people (Mostly white folks) are more offended by PewDiePie saying the n word “Nigga” not “Nigger” than the foul shit that’s been going on in Chicago. Why don’t ya’ll learn what context is before you scream racism. Because there wasn’t any racial threats or act of obvious real racism. It’s like ya’ll picked up right where you left off in 2016, being offended by the most trivial things. Nah, we should not have to language police and virtue signal for anyone. And white folks, stop being offended on black folks behalf. YOU more than anyone are making black folks look like children who don’t know any better. You and i know black people are better than that. STOP IT! Ya’ll need to set your priorities straight and forget about trivial stuff. NO, i don’t think Felix is a racist.
Why you shouldn’t use “Monosexual” and “Cisgender”
Disclaimer, to other Radfems: I’m not trying to be the language police. This is my opinion. I am simply expressing my concern with using the terms monosexual and cisgender to describe certain groups of people. If you disagree, you’re welcome to argue your point, but please be respectful and constructive.
I don’t think the terms monosexual and cisgender have any place within the common radfem rhetoric. Monosexual and cisgender are both terms that can be used to erase people’s identities, and unsuprisingly, have been perpetuated by the trans cult and its followers.
Monosexual has been perpetuated by certain bisexuals in the libfem community with the implication that gay men and Lesbians, grouped together with heterosexuals, are somehow privileged over bisexual people. As a bisexual person, I find this very problematic. Yes, bisexual people face “biphobia” like being told it’s just a face, or we’ll end up choosing one or the other, our erasure in the media, people assuming we are naturally cheaters, being fetishized and some others. But I dislike the implication that gay men and lesbians have some sort of measurable privilege over bisexuals. This isn’t true. Yes, a gay man, particularly a white one, would have a measurable privilege over me, a bisexual woman of color, but I don’t necessarily think it’s because he’s gay and I’m bi, I think it’s because he’s a white man and I’m a woman of color. For neither of us is our sexuality a form of privilege (although I’m more likely to be straight passing than him, which contrary to what libfems think isn’t actually a form of oppression). Thus, it erases the struggles of gay men and lesbians to group them with heterosexuals in this way, which could stunt conversation about their issues.
In much the same vein, “cis” has been used by trans gender people in the libfem community to group men and women together who don’t have dysphoria and don’t identify as a gender that doesn’t align with their biological sex. This is meant to assign privilege to a class of “cis” people, who are perceived to be more privileged than trans people. However, much in the same way that the term monosexual has the potential to erase and silence gay men and lesbians, cis has the potential (and has) to erase women’s issue by grouping them with men. This comes from the inexplicably popular idea that sex based oppression isn’t real (even though, across the globe, women are stripped from their rights based on their sex, from FGM in the developing world to the loss of access to birth control and abortion in the West). This isn’t to say that the trans community doesn’t face a set of challenges, they certainly do. However, I don’t see how your oppression makes you somehow less privileged than women in a patriarchal society, or that women are somehow part of a class of oppressors. To me, grouping women with men is meant to silence us when trying to speak on our issues. Whatever “female privilege” transpeople think we have really becomes eclipsed when you consider all that’s done to women because they possess female sexual organs.
I’m not trying to enter into the discourse of the oppression olympics, but assuming I have privilege because I’m a woman who doesn’t suffer gender dysphoria or assuming gay men and lesbians have privilege over bisexuals is reductive and rather than addressing issues seems to silence those speaking on them. It also impedes progress by assuming that gay men, lesbians, and women in general have gained some sort of amazing privilege in the world, which we haven’t
Like, I’m as annoyed as anyone when I see “femmephobia” listed as a category of oppression next to real issues like transphobia, homophobia, and racism, but the progenitors of that nonsense are universally dumb kids in their early twenties involved in 3rd rate college activism circles and are in no way a “threat” to anyone at all.
Meanwhile, that post is getting shared by t**f after t**f, people who literally want trans women dead.
Like, yeah that dorky 20 yo old trans masc at your campus lgbt group who keeps trying to language police everyone to show how smart they are is kinda douchey, but I would be way more concerned about the people who want to fucking exterminate trans women.
