“Being a girl is like playing on easy mode”: jealousy of women

In previous posts in this blog we have seen how gender stereotypes play a big role in the narrative of many transitioners. Liking stereotypically feminine things or wanting long hair is seen as significant markers of internal “gender” rather than aspects of personality. There are other types of narratives that lead to someone deciding they are trans. One we will call the  sexual narrative, the other one we will call the jealousy narrative. The sexual narrative will be described in more detail in later posts.

Being jealous of women and girls is something that comes up often in the narratives of transitioners. Sometimes the jealousy focuses on physical aspects of being female, such as breasts, genitals or being “allowed” to act and dress in specific ways.

This poster even gets angry with women for being women:

Another poster asks, “does the jealousy ever go away“?

There is a lot of anger directed at women:

Another common cause of jealousy is that women are perceived to have it “better” or “easier”. This attitude, which is prevalent among people who call themselves “men’s rights activists”, is also not uncommon among transgender people online.

Women have it better:

Being a “pretty girl” is like playing on “easy mode”:

Male privilege is nothing, when you’re a girl people open doors for you!

Males are the ones who are oppressed, females have tons of advantages!

There are many people spending a lot of time in online trans communities who do not have an emotionally healthy or mature perspective on what it means to be female. Regardless of whether one agrees with a lot of the transgender politics, most people would agree that someone who is unable to leave the house because seeing women makes them too angry are not in a healthy place, whether they decide to transition or not.

    • I know right?! Sick–and some are very scary. Can’t wait to share gym locker rooms and bathrooms with these people. Jealous of our periods, our voices, our vulnerability? OK… wait… W.. T… F?!

    “…their lack of athletic ability…”
    “…their oppression…”
    “…shave their legs…”

    It’s also interesting how they project their ageism on women all the fucking time.
    Being a woman means people are nice to you all the time? Does he know any actual women? Does he listen to the words that come out of their mouths?

  3. Reading this bald hate for women and girls makes you feel even better about men’s push to force themselves into womens’ toilets and locker rooms, formerly private female spaces,eh? That’s what I want when I’m alone, undressed and vulnerable: to find myself in a confined, difficult-to-exit space with a male whose hatred for me cannot be contained. FFS.

  4. I’ve read this a few times over the past months, and it continues to be upsetting. It seems so clear that unless they can literally become female, they will never be happy. That’s impossible, but they throw everything they have at it–surgery, clothes, hormones, behavioral changes, and, perhaps most of all, the demand that the world accept them as literally no different than born women. This envy, jealousy, anger is not really about women; it’s about the fact that they can’t have something they want, no matter what they do. The thing is, they turn make it everyone else’s fault and everyone else’s problem, and they expect the world to feel sorry for them because of it, even while they’re throwing violent tantrums about it, no-platforming, and forcing compliance with their rules and legal changes.
