Ryan Fortney is a Man who regularly harasses Women online who disagree with transgenderism. I recently ran across a video of him speaking.
And I watched it.
Women: These Men are Men. Stop telling us they are Women. They are not. I trust my perceptions, I trust my judgment.
He’s a Man.
Ryan Fortney is a Man.
Now, there is an undercurrent in this conversation that because I say Ryan is a Man, that means I think he’s bad or evil or wrong.
I don’t. He’s a gender-nonconforming Man. I’ve been a dyke longer than Ryan’s been a Woman. I love “gender nonconformity.” It does not threaten me.
There are specific Men like Ryan Fortney – Dana Lane Taylor, Daryl Banks – who both identify as Women AND harass Women – do I think those Men are bad?
Yes! I think those Men are bad because of their harassment of Women.
Ryan says he could give me PTSD if he had access to me.
Do you know what actually causes PTSD? It’s not being subjected to interrogation by your employer because you harass a rape victim on social media while on the company dime.
No, actually, PTSD is caused by WAR or RAPE or SEXUAL ABUSE. Serious, traumatic events.
Do you think I’m supposed to welcome Ryan in my space given that he wants to commit grievous harm to me?
Women – including me – are actually PERMITTED to observe conduct and form conclusions based on that conduct. Just like you are permitted to form conclusions about my actions.
I will continue to observe and report.
Let me know when that becomes illegal.
In the meantime, keep your placating bullshit, your “it’s mean to call transwomen men, it’s mean to use male pronouns,” well away from me.
PS – Watch this video. If you are still telling yourself “He is a Woman because he says so,” enjoy your cognitive dissonance.
