Don't be tricked into thinking that neon haired kiddos & adult weirdos on Kool Aid are just pulling nonsensical BS out of their arses. I mean, it is BS, but the sort of delusional BS that was carefully planned & written by a privileged white man with autogynephilia in 1996. 1/9
Already from the very short intro into this 1996 book one will recognize 3 main TRA talking points:
1. race is the same as sex hence segregating people based on sex is equal to racism
2. gender is conflated with gender roles
3. biology is regressive & inconsequential 2/9
Martin Rothblatt, apart from being a textbook example of AGP, is a (morbidly) fascinating character. Far more fascinating than his middle-age crisis that triggered his transition in his 40s is his battle against biology & the evil material world. It would be extremely 3/9
interesting to know what sort of early childhood trauma plus cultural influences shaped his severe womb envy (and hatred). However, it is obvious that his war on biology started in earnest with the incurable illness of his daughter. 4/9…
If this story is not merely a good marketing ploy, it seems that his transition & his daughter's illness coincided, which is again very common with many autogynephiliacs. Jenesis is now in her 30s. But this experience apparently convinced Rothblatt that biology can 5/9
and MUST be improved. It's a strange sort of gnostic conviction that the created world is inherently evil and that our souls/essences must be liberated from what he calls "the sin of fleshism".
This sentiment shapes his son's sect, Terasem. 6/9…
Martin Rothblatt was working on this since the late 1980s. He gave the legal framework for the de facto erasure of biological sex called the Yogyakarta Principles that is now being treated as the Holy Queer Bible. 7/9…
So remember that nothing in this ideology is random, even though it looks random & confused (which it is). All of this comes from a narcissistic mind of a troubled man who, as many men before him, turned his own mental illness into religion. So this is not a fringe 8/9
feminist issue. This is not Left eating the Left. This is not Left vs. The Right. This is war on humanity and the essence of what makes us human: the freedom to just BE. Please follow @bjportraits for an in-depth analysis. This concerns us all. 9/9…
Creating robots is Rothblatt's way to cope with his fear of death and decay that is intrinsically connected with biology. It's a mix of fascination & hatred, and he's alternating between both. Like I said, he's a fascinating man. And absolutely bat-shit crazy.

More on the rich influential white men institutionalizing transgenderism and on the reality of transgenderism in the thread 👇: Image
"This article will use the Pritzker family as a case study, both to reduce length and because they are emblematic of how this works. Those...normalizing transgenderism are channeling funds in the same ways and invested in the same medical infrastructure."…
"Under Techno-Capitalism, hatred of women is promoted in order to commodify female bodies and profit from women’s pain."…
