Notes on the Journey

This essay is from Anonymous Sister:


When you see female youth transitioning, it’s overwhelmingly the tomboys. These girls would have grown up to be butch like me. I grabbed a coffee at the Trans Starbucks again this week. Sat for a while to watch 3 butches pretend they are men.

Every butch lesbian who is critical about this horrific trans. movement—that would push young lesbians into believing they are male and amputating their healthy breasts and taking cross-hormones—every butch knows what they are seeing. It’s like looking into a mirror and recalling all of the angst, hatred, parental and peer rejection all over again. Except with these young butches, it’s about harming their bodies and destroying their chances of experiencing sexual pleasure once the full mutilations are completed.

I see it at the Trans Starbucks. Saw those poor butch lesbians all up on T again and their voices changed and off. It’s a horrific experience to sit in a room full of my sisters and know this. It’s like being one of the last butch survivors in the genocide. I can’t think of any other way to state the horror I feel at progressives actually thinking that the surgical violation of these young lesbians is somehow a brave and courageous thing.

They are telling these girls that they are not okay being who they are and wearing what they want to wear. These are girls like I once was. They sometimes have short hair, and that way of carrying themselves that is strong and independent. They don’t care about boys and they play with trucks and things other girls don’t really like. They dress as they want. They like collecting rocks and they don’t giggle around the boys like the other girls. Maybe they climb trees. And that’s all not okay. They are being shamed. They are being told they are male.

They call it ‘gender non-conforming.’ That’s a fancy word for butch lesbian. What is happening is that tomboys are pushed to transition and the trans. net captures all the future butches. This is not mere speculation. Physicians who work in gender clinics are saying that homosexuality is the first ‘step’ to transing. This is gruesome.

People who come onto my fb page sometimes try to explain this away and say to stop focusing on the tomboys and lesbian youth because other girls trans, too.

No. Let’s focus on the lesbians. This movement is about lesbian erasure, gay eugenics, the genocide of lesbians. We already know that over 80% of the youth who are transed would have desisted in their ‘gender dysphoria’ and eventually turned out to be adult lesbians and gays.

And now they are telling the tomboys that they are not girls. There is no such thing as a girl who doesn’t like pink, they say. And I can’t help seeing my own young, scared butch face long ago in the mirror, with all the ensuing harassment and rejection and judgment and hatred. Yet here the fuck I am, sitting in the Trans Starbucks, watching all my young butch sisters falling over themseslves to conform to some insane trans agenda. Falling all over themselves to become ersatz men.

Our lesbian spaces are already dead. Our bookstores, our dances. Everything we built is dead and taken over by the trans nightmare. I was there when we had it all. Don’t think I don’t have at least a modicum of hope that this madness will end. Because I do. But that’s not today.

Meanwhile at the Trans Starbucks, all the young butches who think they are men are serving up lattes and lemon loaf. And butches like me— we sit and drink that stuff in the bright sunshine.


  1. Oh Sister we have a Trans Starbucks too. At least two trans young Butch typesetting who have transitioned. And they were handsome young women. Both wanting male pronouns, both transitioned. And many more behind them in this community. There are NO Butches under 30 in this town. They ALLL transitioned or want to.
    It breaks my heart. Yes I was there since 1981 when the Lesbian community was strong. Now its in tatters.

    great piece & really resonates with me as a former sissy-boy. At age 7 I thought I wanted to be a girl, but what I wanted was to be a person who wasn’t forced to play baseball… & I know that at least in some enclaves of today’s climate that would be taken as a signal that such a kid should start transitioning. My experience among transing men has also been similar, men who gravitate to male-fantasy caricatures of femininity but basically still living as gay men. not that there’s anything wrong with that, but to make such behavior the norm on either side really IS about erasing us,so thanks? Curious where you got the 80% figure?
