Good evening to Aussies & Good afternoon, Good morning to anyone else around the planet who comes across this thread. Time has been spent this week looking after real life issues outside of the internet. Today's thread is again about misogyny, AGP trans person, & transwidows
I've come across this article by Tatum Street in the Spectator,…. I don't think she quite understands the role of AGP in trans women, but does use a well known ex AFL footballer as an example, so I'll run with it. 2/* #transwidowsOz #transwidows
Men who abuse women, are feted, particularly celebrity but when you add in a dash of blue & pink, it absolves one of their sins. Recently a #transwidow discovered her ex husband, an AGP trans person was showcased at a feminist event. It stopped her from speaking up. 3/*
Many other women who are #transwidows, see their former spouses rise &receive praise, get sympathy for how hard it must have been to hide their "true selves" and their suffering spouses, in the words of one well known irish psychologist, "well done you". 4/* #transwidowsOz
What do #transwidows have in common with the victim of the former footballer? We're women, we've been abused, harassed, we've felt frightened for our life and sanity, & we have no support in the aftermath. #transwidowsOz
As Tatum has written in her article, it's galling to see the Australian Prime Mister @AlboMP standing shoulder to shoulder with a person who caused a woman to fear for her security & wellbeing. 6/* #transwidowsOz #transwidows
There's no redemption arc for AGP trans people who have abused their spouses or women & family in their lives before, during and after transition, nor does being trans nullify responsibility for their behaviour towards #transwidows. 7/* #transwidowOz
#transwidows need the support, the counseling, the welcoming arms of the very organisations that currently reject them, for believing in their own material reality & experiences. 8/* #transwidowsOz
When praising a transperson who's in a standard relationship, for coming out & being brave & strong, think about what you're saying to their spouses. You could be sanctioning domestic violence, coercion, psychological & emotional abuse. #transwidows #transwidowsOz FIN

Good afternoon everyone, in Australia, it's a great day if the Federal ICAC passes through parliament, to friends on the other side of the planet, winter is coming, buckle up. Getting to today's subject of sex, kinks etc. 1/*
Today is part IV from @PankhurstEM 's written analysis of AGP men in relationships and the role of pornography has in the development of this paraphilia.…

#transwidowsOz #transwidows
Many women who've been involved with transwomen who are AGP, would agree, there is a strong element of pornography. Not all the time, but it's safe to say, that it's the opinion of this account, that pornography serves to validate & normalise this behaviour. 3/* #transwidowsOz

On another note, while reading articles on sexuality & gender for couples who have a transitioning partner, some papers are presenting the concept that female partners have left rather than stay. In my experience, that hasn't happened. However, there's not enough data yet.
And interestingly, all the papers suggest affirmation and sexual therapy for both people in the relationship to learn how to be with each other again. That sounds like conversion therapy to my uneducated eyes, so more reading will need to be done.

Good afternoon everyone, I hope you have had a fabulous day in Australia and for those who are elsewhere, I hope you have a great day coming up! #transwidowsOz - today, we're going to talk about abuse. 🧵
I present part III of @PankhurstEM's analysis of AGP males in heterosexual relationships, involving unwilling women, coerced into doing things they don't want to do.… 1/*
It's hard when the domestic abuse that these women experiences doesn't involve physical violence as we understand it. For years, domestic violence, even with the white ribbon campaign has focused on physical abuse, drugs, alcohol etc. 2/* #transwidowsOz #transwidows

This is part II of a series of articles that @PankhurstEM wrote regarding Autogynophilic men in relationships with women. Despite a few people who believe that AGP has been debunked, it hasn't.

Dr EM discusses the techniques used in these relationships to maintain coercive control, emotional blackmail.
If you support the AGP man as being brave and needing support, you are contributing to the loss of agency that the spouse (wife) has in this situation. #transwidowsOz
Women in these relationships are subordinate to the male. AGPs claiming their spouse supports them, is causing deep psychological harm to the woman that they think they love, and their children, by forcing them to accept a change that they did not consent to. #transwidowsOz
