The Blue Wave Is Not Enough (But We Are!)

The past week has been absolutely devastating for me as an individual. As I am writing this my Twitter account is on lock down because of an aggressive remark I made to someone claiming that trans men don’t deserve financial support and have male privilege. It made me realize just how dependent I am on social media and on my existing audience. I’ve been anxious and on edge partly due to the news of Trump deciding to take a huge shit all over trans rights but also because of many personal issues. On top of that, Brazilian Hitler is now president in Brazil and I’m deeply worried for the safety of a close friend of mine.

Being trans is but one aspect of myself, and thus the setbacks that I face for being trans in a cis normative and heavily cissexist society are far from what I am limited to. I also suffer extreme drawbacks due to my many mental issues such as my agoraphobia, depression, social anxiety, complex PTSD, and likely from borderline personality disorder. I’ve thought deeply and heavily about what will happen if I ever need to turn to illegal activity just to live as my true self. Read more

Political Rant: On Kristi Hanna and Trans Women in Women Shelters

Kristi Hanna

TW: Transphobia, Domestic Abuse, Homophobia, Rape.
Just a few moments ago, I came across a tweet from a rather prevalent trans writer I follow about an incident in a Toronto women’s shelter involving a trans woman. There was a link to an article by the National Post titled “Forced to share a room with transgender woman in Toronto shelter, sex abuse victim files human rights complaint.” The contents was about what I’d expect given the tendency of media to dehumanize trans women as predators for even the slightest provocation. In the past, I have made the claim that I need to posses at least a modicum of respect for someone if I am to write a response to the. To make things clear, that does not apply to Joseph Brean or the National Post. I consider this piece more so of a response to Kristi Hanna herself.

Before anyone assumes I’m about to defend Hanna, I ask that you re-read the title of this post. I don’t know Hanna personally and thus I am not going to assume that she is a straight up bigot right away, or if she merely did something dubious while under the stress of trauma related to sexual abuse. I’m going to give her the benefit of the doubt for the purposes of this response precisely because that is a possibility, but also because this can very well be the case for other cis women.

The Absurdity of the “Trans Narcissism” Narrative

Trigger Warning: Transphobia, and lots of it. Also ableism and violence.

Did you know that being a trans person and caring about how you are treated by cis people is inherently selfish? Did you know that when some douchebag calls trans women “mentally ill men with mutilated dicks” that WE are the ones that are selfish for calling them assholes? Did you know that having hatred and contempt for women who literally think our existence is misogynistic and that claim we are a danger to women by nature of said existence means we are abusers who only care about ourselves and fetishize womanhood?

What’s that? That sounds morally disgusting and abusive? Congratulations; you’re a decent human being! Those that take issue with this last paragraph will likely have one of two responses. The first are those that unironically believe everything I just said because they are biological essentialist sociopaths and will then claim it is “proof” of my narcissism. In this case, such a thing is obviously projection due to a refusal to accept a major human rights movement because one would rather believe their own innate prejudiced instincts than have a shred of human decency.

The second and likely larger group are those that think this paragraph is an exaggerated strawman and that they don’t actually think that way. While there are certainly some that don’t even have anything against trans acceptance or inclusion that simply think that most trans activists would consider them transpbobes anyway, I would know since I have met some of them, there is still a sizable amount who will say that the above is a strawman… yet who still believe some variation on the above.

AnnieGal Unscripted #7 Blaire White Leaves Twitter

The short version is that Blaire White deleted her account from Twitter and I proceed to rant about her for a bit while extending and invitation to talk it out with her that she will likely ignore in favor of digging herself further into her own grave.

AnnieGal Unscripted #5 “Waifu Holocaust” Steam Controversy

A new video of mine about Steam being dumb and banning lewd anime games.

The TLDW version is that gamers trivialize the issue by calling it the “waifu holocaust,” and downplay the sexist, homophobic, and xenophobic implications present.

AnnieGal Unscripted #4 GCFs, if You Don’t Hate Us for Our Biology or Mind our Presence, SAY SO!

Yeah, another new video already, and it’s MUCH better than my last one. I got to the point much quicker and expressed it much more eloquently. It was the same basic subject but I expressed it a lot better here. I was intending to talk about the trans movement but a recap of the last piece trailed off until I realized I’d been talking for 30 minutes so I’ll talk about them in another video.

AnnieGal Unscripted #2 Why I Want to Debate Blaire White

This time, I just try to cut out the middle man and get Blaire’s attention directly through a video.

Blaire White: An Intervention

Blaire White | Ok sign

I wrote an article about Blaire White on this blog once before. I have a rule established that I only write response articles to people who have at least a shred of human decency in them, and when I wrote that, I was under the naive impression that Blaire might be one of those. Considering that I had already gone from being a hater to being a fan, it would take a lot to make me renounce any bit of respect I had for her. At that point, I had already pledged three superchat donations to her. Hell I really wanted to debate her myself to the point that I tried whatever I could to get her attention, none of which succeeded. One of those donations was specifically to ask her to debate me on a live stream, she said she was okay with it but couldn’t find me because I didn’t give her my Twitter handle (even though she followed me on Twitter at the time and could have just searched the handle). So I made another pledge just to provide the handle, but she skips over this one during the stream when she otherwise goes out of her way to read ALL of them.

Steam Greenlight Landfill: FEMINAZI: The Triggering

Feminazi: The Triggering | logo

While I knew that a game like FEMINAZI: The Triggering would be garbage based only off the title, it was something that looked so stupid and immature that I needed to try it out. It was pretty much what I expected, but I find it interesting to write about games that are entirely motivated by politics. I find it a lot more fun than playing them that’s for sure,

Of note is that this game was released in February of 2017, 2 years after GamerGate was at its peak and was relevant. As a result, this already draws similarities to when Hollywood tries to cash in on memes years after they were popular. Additionally, it was published by Back to Basics Gaming, who serves as the LJN of Steam releases. Looking through their releases, one will see that they mostly publish RPG Maker games or low budget bargain bin titles that barely pass for flash games. They also published Final Quest, a poorly made RPG Maker game that I reviewed a while back, although said game clearly had much higher intentions than the garbage I’m reviewing here.

Response to Zinnia Jones: Zinnia Understands Science and Facts (But Doesn’t Understand People)

Zinnia Jones

For those of you that have followed my political writings, you are likely familiar with Zinnia Jones, as I have previously written an entire article in defense of a few controversial tweets of her’s, and I have mentioned her in an article made in response to her arch nemesis, Blaire White. I have mentioned her in part of my own personal grievances with Blaire, but if one paid attention, I also foreshadowed this article back there as well.

…it feels like I’m the only one who just doesn’t expect everyone to be perfect. I’m not even referring to just Blaire here, but I am also speaking with Zinnia in mind with whom my feelings are similar but for different reasons. I have thought of making a similar piece about her, but I’m unsure how to approach it.

Well, I have figured that out now. If one could not have guessed, my article about Blaire was not just a rebuttal, it was Read more
