Philadelphia Gay News: Everything About Trans Existence Not Only Can be Questioned but Must be Questioned

That’s the reality of the position taken by PGN in defending its indefensible decision to continue to legitimize trans-exterminationist Victoria Brownworth.

[I]t has been also been argued that this particular writer has made comments in the past that suggested anti-transgender viewpoints.

How many Republican lawyers helped write this apologia?

It has been DEMONSTRATED as FACT that Victoria Brownworth has authored trans-misogynistic pieces IN YOUR OWN PUBLICATION!

Transsexuals in the Lesbian Community: The Ultimate in Male Power-Tripping?

There is no suggestion that this is trans-exterminationism 101. The very title of it is a pastiche of Janice Raymond’s 1977 “Transsexualism: The Ultimate Homage to Sex-Role Power.”

Perhaps most importantly, nowhere does this FOX-esque defense of Brownworth indicate that she has ever explicitly apologized for her explicit transphobia. Nowhere does this FOX-esque defense of Brownworth indicate that she has ever even acknowledged that she participated in the legitimizing of the exclusion of trans people (particularly trans women) from the gay rights movement – an exclusion that trans women of my generation have sacrificed our professional well-being to undo.

No one has argued against the content of this series.

Looks like I owe an apology to Republican lawyers. Clearly, PGN let Brownworth herself pen this editorial as this line sounds suspiciously like most of the irrelevant responses she left to historically-substantive comments made by rightfully-horrified members of the trans community in the comments section to her piece last week.

Differences, however, should not close the door to discussions.

Translation of this money shot: Nothing about gay existence can be questioned, but everything about trans existence must be – and trans people who speak out against this status quo are persecuting the po’ pitiful put-upon transphobes who have made their living for decades by enacting and defending the trans-exclusionistic policy priorities that have contributed to the persistent presence of an inordinate number of trans street kids even while Chad Griffin has a direct cell phone line to the president of the United States.

Way to go, PGN.

You took a disgusting mistake that you should have immediately rectified and, instead, found the one way in which you could shit on trans people even more than you did by continuing to legitimize Brownworth in the first place.

  1. “No one has argued against the content of this series.”

    Translation – PGN says it’s fine for Brownworth to have the love the sinner, not the sin standard for trans people.

    But – not for gays.

  2. But she’s an AWARD-WINNING INVESTIGATIVE JOURNALIST (just ask her), and she’s helping trans POC sex workers WHO HAVE NO VOICE. Can’t you see what a white cis woman’s burden she’s carrying?

    I better stop, I’m about to throw up in my mouth a little.

    • You know who else was an award winner? Nah – not him.

      J. Michael Bailey.

      • Was it a MAJOR award? Like, a table lamp that’s also a sexy leg? I think old Chaser Bailey would like that if the fishnets were his size.

        • At this point I’m tempted to insert the name of the award that Les Nessman so coveted, but if I did I’m sure that the radphlegm trans-exterminationists would claim that it ‘proves’ misogyny on my part.

        • Oddly – it was the same award. And the Vickster helped Bailey get his award from Lambda.

          There’s not enough lipstick in the world to beautify that pig.

  3. […] issue is the Philadelphia Gay News (PGN) response to the trans community’s outrage over allowing Victoria Brownworth, a known TERF, to use it’s media platform to lecture trans […]
