"You're disgusting. So is Nelson"

Before I continue, I need to make mention of the fact that I served one year in prison, after pleading one count to one count of promoting a sexual performance of a minor. As a result of my crime, I've been placed on a sex offender registry.

Some of you might be wondering why I'm reopening old wounds.

This morning, I had someone alert me to a brief exchange between an internet sociopath and GIDWatch, the official twitter account for

I'm somewhat reluctant to post the screengrab. And I really don't want to dignify this, but I'm way past the point of being sick and tired of having people, LGBT activists mostly, invite themselves of the right to judge and criticize me.

First off, whatever happened occurred when I wasn't a blogger or activist.  I went to prison for a year because I was criminally profiled by a man who is notorious for trolling gay websites and building criminal cases against gay men and teen boys.  And becase I was being careless and ignorant.  It had nothing to do with pedophillia.

The reason I became an activist and blogger was to fight back from people attempting looking to drag me back into prison again after doing time for the crime.

But it's the past.  What's done is done and there's nothing I can do to change that.  What I can do, however, is learn from experience and make goddamn certain it doesn't happen again, which is precisely what I've done for the past ten years now advocating against special interest groups causing harm and endangering the gay and lesbian community.

They would include boylovers, ex-gays, anti-gays, pedophiles, religionists gay and straight, and now homophobic trans women activists.

Not that anyone's noticed or wants to.

But for the past ten years, I've had to put up with a bunch of overzealous LGBT activists, the majority of whom for reasons that cannot be explained, are terribly narrowminded, paranoid, and demonstrably hypocritical beyond belief.

It saddens me that Gender Identity Watch has decided they too, want to play an irresponsible and dangerous game at my expense by lumping me in with pedophiles and rapists.

"You're disgusting. So is Nelson."

I'm not sure what Gender Identity Watch are implying.  For the record, I've never mocked anyone's rape.

Nor do I spend my day stalking people online and creating content at their or anyone's expense.

Let's talk about disgusting; The only people known for linking pedophillia and homosexuality are anti-gay cowards.

And far as I my recent opines regarding transgenderism and transgenders, I've been trying very hard to seperate the two, but as Ive been witnessed to, they love the hypocrisy, they love having it both ways on everything.

And that's the real disgusting part of it all.

For example, trans activists have been demanding that we as a community not use words like tranny and shemale. They call it a slur against transgenders, despite there being no evidence tranny and shemale ever being used to denigrate trans people.   On the other hand, trans women activists have taken it upon themselves to use the pedophile slur to vilify gay activists and bloggers [like me], never mind the fact there is no actual link between pedophilia and homosexuality.

But don't let the facts get in the way of one's narrow minded agenda.

As for Gender Identity Watch, it's seems they've too have forgotten what they're supposed to be about exactly and have imagined themselves of the right to exploit sex offenders for their own personal or monetary gain.

For several days, GIDWatch has been alerting it's followers the Sylvia Rivera Law Project has been giving a blogging platform to a registered sex offender named Lewis Stevens. Lewis now wants to become Leanna and share his or her rather, experiences as an incarcerated trans woman

Not that there's anything wrong with someone detailing their transition, but it's just that the Sylvia Rivera Law Project is serious lacking accountability and transparency on this one, refusing to mention Leanna, formerly Lewis, is currently serving an eighty seven month prison after pleading guilty to one count of promoting a sexual performance of a minor.

Or the hypocrisy and unethicality in playing sex offender tug of war.

And therein lies the problem.  It seems when all else fails for GIDWatch, they go trolling for the nearest sex offender online and blame them for the perceived threat to women's spaces.

It's a sick twisted game I want no part of.

The unfortunate part is I've been trying without any help from Gender Identity Watch or anyone else who agrees with me the T must leave LGB, to stop attempts by trans activists to have the Southern Poverty Law Center declare Gender Identity Watch a hate group.  I even tried writing a letter to Twitter on why it was a mistake to ban Cathy Brennan.  I've also argued with people about the recent attempts to bar Gender Identity Watch from Facebook.

And as many may recall, I was the only gay blogger to express his outrage over the way officials with NYC Dyke March allowed a bunch of women with penises to verbally assault and harass a lesbian activist who was there to celebrate being an out and proud lesbian.

Rinse. Lather. Repeat. 
Quite the thank you from a coalition whose shared activist focus quickly spins the bottle to land on the choice to advert their gaze, when their own personal and/or monetary gain stands to be lost through the association of the common member's pain gone public.
Yeah, no kidding.

Whatever. I'm not opposed to being critiqued. In fact, I welcome it. I made a promise to myself never to go back to that dysfunctional life again and I intend to keep my promise regardless of what people think.  And having people criticising me just means that I need to act responsibily.

But it’s another thing to be backstabbed, hated on, blamed, accused, lied about, etc.

If anyone thinks exploiting/attacking me is the best way to win a character debate, you better seriously reconsider what it is you're advocating for because today you made it quite obvious you're an organization that promotes oppression. This is not how you win friends, this is how you lose them.

And in the future, if you or anyone has a problem with me, don't hide behind your Twitter account.  It makes you a coward.

trans women are driving much of the conflict within the LGBT community, according to a trans woman.

Writing for Queerty and a diversity problem that exists at GLAAD, Andrea James reveals an inconvenient about the modern day trans movement:  Trans women are driving much of the conflict within the LGBT community.

As with everything else that has been taking place, trans women activists are doing their damndest to discredit Andrea James by calling her a traitor to the transgender community.

Did I mention Andrea James is transgender?

so much for j nelson aviance: you have been blocked from following this account at the request of the user.

I'm not surprised.   After all, this does follow a disturbing pattern I've been seeing repeatedly when one deals with homophobic transgender activists.  Someone writes a column or blog or makes a statement critical of transgenderism, and then the homophobic transgender activists fight back by engaging in a character attacks, and then person folds like a cheap suit.

I tell that someone to stand their ground and I get blocked.

I don't get it.  No, actually, I do get it.

Apparently I must be confused on what it means to stand their ground; I thought it was to stand your ground and maintain your position after someone has expressed their displeasure. I had no idea it meant blocking someone on Twitter because the internet is a coward's paradise.

Whatever; despite this latest setback, I reject the term "cisgender" and agree with everything he wrote; And I believe strongly transgenders should get out of the LGB.  We don't tolerate anti-gays and ex-gays, and anyone who advocate against marriage equality. It's beyond me why we as a community are making an exception for the rule for a community of individuals who demand we accept their emotional and psychological malfunctions.

Another blogger once told me, there are activists, the ones who become activists out of those unforeseen events that dumped their life, or the life of a friend or loved one, down the toilet, and then you have activists who cut and run when the baggage that propels one to fight instead of quit is compromised or exploited.

And that has certainly been the case with whole nonsense regarding tranny and cisgender and the gay and lesbian community.

Hell hath no fury like a homophobic trans woman with a penis scorned.

no, it's not okay to call anyone cisgender

It's been awhile since I've heard from Ian Finkenbinder, aka One Angry Queer.  Sometime last year, he invaded my Twitter feed to offer me a Dan Choi mousepad:

I refused the offer.

Today, he's written a post titled, "It's Okay To Be Called 'Cisgender.' I Promise, " a response to J. Nelson Aviance Huffpost Gay Voice piece where he rejects the term cisgender.

Suffice to say, or write, Ian's piece is rife with sexism, racism, misandry, homophobia, ignorance, arrogance, hypocirsy, and elitism.

Fikenbinder, who identifies himself currently as "genderqueer," described Mr. Aviance's column, quote, a "trainwreck of a tantrum" and a headache to read.

I would advise Mr. Finkebinder to take two Advil and a hot shower and have his vision checked.

Here's the problem with Ian FInkebinder: One cannot tell from one day to next what it is he wants to be.

Here's what somewhat else wrote about Finkenbinder; it's located here in case anyone's wondering, and it's been slightly edited for context.
...Interestingly if you search the net he bounces from one cult to another. He was supposedly a military translator helping to pursue the murder enof civilians in Iraq, then a don’t ask, don’t tell opponent chaining himself to the white house gate, then some sort of internet personality for risque fashion shows, then an Occupy Seattle spokesperson, then an Anarchist, now a unicorn anarchist, whaterver that is, bent on spitting on cops whenever someone else with a worthy cause produces a moving protest. Way to hijack everyone else’s peaceful successful movements to shout ” Me! Me! Look at me!” Sad.
That last part is especially troublesome: In addition to everything else, Finkenbinder has admitted he is HIV positive.


Here's the problem [I have] with cisgender: It is, at best, a myth and, at worst, a very slimy way for trans activists and people like Ian to bash women and gays , under the guise they're the ones who are being oppresive, when the reality is Transgenders have everything they can to live their lives to the fullest.

So why the need for cisgender then?

Obviously, it's the only way for them, Ian and the homophobic tranny community, to be gutless without repercussions.

rights and wrongs

Being that Thomas wants to lecture me on rights and wrongs... I'll take a moment to talk about this too, because naturally, I, um, have some expertise in this area.

I've been wrong many times before.  Fuck man, I went to prison for eight months because I spent a good portion of my life believing in someone or something only to then have someone literally and figuratively pull the rug out from under me.

And it wasn't just anyone either; it was someone who is notorious for stalking gay men and teenagers online and getting them to commit a sacrosanct crime.

Against, it's the past. My past. For anyone wanting to use that past in the hopes of invalidating an argument is pretty fucked up move, but that's the price I pay for being a nationally recognized LGBT activist and blogger.

I'm not wrong about that.

Know what else I've been wrong about? The equality movement and LGBT activism.  I thought originally people became activists in support (or opposition) to a cause; in my case it would be having a homophobe stalker trying to entice me with sex and me just being too weak, tired, and yes even stupid to know better.

Again, consequences; it's something that is not taught at Netroots or by anyone at the New Organizing Institute.  You don't learn about this from LGBT activists.

No, I had to learn the truth the old fashioned way: thru betrayal and a contempt for money.

And not that Thomas will mention it but it was trans activists who warned me about equality activists. I had to go back to my old blog - actually that blog doesn't exist, but I do have much of my old posts archived somewhere else - to refresh my memory and sure enough, there they be, trans activists leaving comments on [what was] my original blog and conversations I had with activists in which they were warning me in advance to be wary of a particular activist or blogger.

I would repost them here, but what's the point in doing so? And after all, according to the trannies, we're not supposed to dwell on the, or their past.

Right, Thomas?

As for transgenderism, only time will tell whether I am wrong or right to call it a disease. I do know this, however; I'm not the only one who has grown sick and tired of all this social justice bullshit surrounding transgenders.

And it's also a given that when comes to special interest groups within the LGBT, they always turn out to be a problem in the long or short run, using their influence to create situations that mostly favour themselves but not the public good.

Hey Thomas? While you continue to do your damndest to question my reputation with your cheap skepticism, a homophobic trans woman activist published the names of several lesbian activists and bloggers for no other because like me, they disagree with transgenders and don't feel safe around them.

What say you now?

And the beauty of it all is, as if there's something to be admired in having people attack you online for expressing an opinion, is that I don't know who this person is in real life.

And I might add, even if I do have an email or contact info for that blogger, I probably won't contact them.  After all, what more can be said about this?

Oh, hi, "augustcarmichael!" Hey I see you've been attacked by homophobic trannies, too? Let's have a kiki!

I don't think so.

To be continued.

poor thomas

Earlier I posted my response to Thomas C Waters where he attempts to call me out for writing transgenderism is a disease. I posted a quick response, but it seems he didn't want to wait for my response and he wrote a followup:
Earlier I posted n open letter to a fellow blogger who is calling transgender a disease, a position I find unacceptable. I posted a link to my post as a comment to his original post, and he replied with the following as a comment:

Short answer because I am currently writing a response: Sorry Thomas, but I can no longer accept as my equals people who act and behave like anti-gay thugs. 
Consider how similar this language is to the Far-right homophobes who call LGBT activists “thugs” and bullies. I especially appreciate this phrase: 
I can no longer accept as my equals… 
Equality isn’t about if we grant it or not. We all deserve to be treated as equals. Period. If some choose not to accept that, they place themselves on the fringe of our society. The fringe may be on the far-right or on the far-left, but the fringe is still outside the mainstream culture where the general premise is that all persons are treated with dignity and respect.
When all else fails, accuse me of being a far right homophobe.

Given that Thomas wants to lecture me on the concept of respect and dignity let's talk about the former and latter: It goes without saying everyone deserves to be treated with dignity, respect, and fairness, including transgenders.

But respect and civilty can only go so far, and when it involves people a community of individuals behaving like facists, respect and dignity be damned.

You know who else likes to talk shit about dignity and respect? Anti-gay bigots. They just love talking and writing about the importance of dialogue and respect, all the while they're blaming people like me for the all the problems that occur in the world.

And there too, anti-gay bigots don't seem to give a damn they harm they cause people, mostly because they think it's their god given right to demonize a group of people; And of course that they can always count on a gay activist to do their bidding for them, too.

I'm not transgender. I've no idea what it means to be one, let alone what it's like to look in the mirror and realize your mind is not in proportion to your body.

But where does it say or read I'm supposed to give or show someone who is transgender dignity and respect just because?

That's not how it works.  Respect is something that is earned, not given.

Just because your're waving the pride flag in my face doesn't mean you get the right to invite yourself the requisite skills to edit me.

That's  also not how this works.

Just because you're a tranny...

It is my hope that people respect me for having the courage to take personal responsibility for myself and my actions, and live my life accordingly, void of anything or anyone that may or might have contributed to my earlier state of dysfunction.

If people don't, then whatever.

I know what happened. I know what I did wrong. I also know what I've done right, and right now it is advocating against transgenderism.

Transgenderism has become a danger to my democracy.

That last sentence should read "ours" but I can't or won't speak on behalf of anyone else because this is not how it works either.

I don't really want to go into reruns again, because i've been there and done that.  I will write I've managed to do just fine without Gay Inc and all these popular gay bloggers.

They live in what I call the activist bubble; I don't.

They need homophobia to survive, I do not. 

And unlike them,  I live in a modest home, I don't live a lavish lifestyle, that is, I don't live in an expensive co-op in Midtown Manhattan and spend my weekends renting a timeshare in Fire Island or Providence. I don't spend money on extravagant things.  I'm more than happy using a chromebook instead of an expensive Mac or iPad. I'm more than happy being on instead of Wordpress, and I'm ever happier not having my own vanity URL.

Who knows what's going to happen in the long term with the transgender community.  Are they, according to Waters, just a bunch of angry trannies transgenders with low self esteem?  Well perhaps, but as with all with people who have a substance dependence or some other mentally or physically damaging problem, the real respect and dignity comes with telling that person to get help or letting them go.

Let them go, Thomas.

about that open letter addressed to me...

Thomas C Waters has written an open letter to me objecting to my calling transgenders, diseased.

Here's my short answer for those who like it Twitter style: I simply can no longer accept as my equals people behaving like a bunch of anti-gay thugs.

My much longer response follows after the jump.
