Create Two, Three, Many Stonewalls

I'm sure I don't have to tell anyone its Pride Month. Its been advertised everywhere from Google to Twitter. A coming out party for the wholesale corporate appropriation of an underground movement. Its not even Queer Pride Month anymore, that title has become too politically incorrect, it might make the straight world uneasy. It's LGBTQ Pride Month, that Disneyfied assimilationist alphabet soup cooked up to get the breeders comfortable enough to bother curing AIDS.

Not that I have anything against Pride Month, quite the contrary, I'm very proud to be a genderfuck lesbian. I'm just apoplectic over the fact that I finally came out just in time for my community to sell out. If you were to go on the advertisements and fanfare alone you'd think we were celebrating the day that drone strike sociopath Barack Obama granted us the right to government sanctioned monogamy. The liberal establishment who suddenly loves us so goddamn much always seems to fail to mention that Queer Pride Month was originally launched to commemorate a violent uprising against the very state they hold so near and dear.

June became Pride Month in celebration of the Stonewall Uprisings of late June, 1969. After the NYPD launched another violent raid against another underground gay bar, the Stonewall Inn, in Manhattan's Greenwich Village, the T-girls and gay boys decided they weren't in the mood to get bashed again by a bunch of bribe taking, sexually confused, neckless, cretins with badges. June 28, 1969 was the day the fags bashed back. And they bashed hard. These weren't today's garden variety house queers either. This mob was a beautiful patchwork of the colors of the queer rainbow that have been erased by the LGBTQ establishment in favor of marketability. These were the drag queens, unpassable trans women, Radical Faeries, and flannel bound bulldykes, my people. We took on the state and we fucking won. We literally kicked the ass of the meanest police force in the country, digging our nails into their thick necks and cracking their jar-heads wide open with bricks. By the time we were finished with our enemies in blue they were running for their lives from the queer volcano they ignited.

This was the birth of the Queer Liberation Movement. Within weeks a score of revolutionary organizations were hatched across the Five Boroughs and eventually the country. Influenced by fellow anti-colonialist urban guerrilla movements like the Black Panthers and the Latin Kings, they weren't asking for reform, they were demanding revolution and they were declaring war against the state that oppressed them. This is precisely what the mainstream left and their assimilationist quislings are trying to pink wash with their politically castrated Pride Month and the tragically defanged LGBTQ movement. Queer liberation has always been an inherently anti-statist movement and contrary to popular belief our fight is far from fucking over.

To paraphrase the late Che Guevara, we need to create two, three, many Stonewalls. We need to create a Stonewall in every red light district being gentrified by corporate "family" fascists. We need to create a Stonewall in every prison where trans people are cruelly quarantined into isolation for their own protection when it's the guards who are the real threat. We need to create a Stonewall in every public school where children are segregated and deprived based solely on the contents of their genitalia. We need to create a Stonewall in every clinic that denies people basic services for not conforming to the gender on their birth certificates. We need to create a Stonewall in every tax-exempt church that still advocates abuse against their children, our children. We need to create a Stonewall in every federal agency that victimizes our people for crossing the border or trying to make a goddamn living with their own bodies. We need to create a Stonewall at the headquarters of every pharmaceutical lobby that takes our tax dollars through corporate welfare and jacks up the cost of hormones sky high to a level that only a pampered bitch like Caitlyn Jenner could afford.

And we need to create one great big queer fucking Stonewall uprising in Washington D.C. where a fascist empire presides over its unwilling subjects across the globe with all the mercy of the Marquis De Sade. Where the pitiless war machine orders drones and bombs and bullets to murder our brothers and sisters and everything in between with endless wars and homophobic puppet regimes. We need a million Stonewalls, dearest motherfuckers. And we need to keep that fire burning until we chase every pig out of town.

Peace, Love, & Empathy- CH

  1. hmmm...

  2. His therapist certainly sounds much better than the one you said you saw. I had a friend tell me that "Queer people want to see queer therapists. It's a matter of trust." Out of curiosity, did you ever report her?

    1. Even better. I'm in contact with someone at my local paper who's interested in doing an article about her. The wolves are beginning to gather around her. I'll make sure she sees my fucking face before the guillotine drops.

      I did look into reporting her but friends of mine with experience in that kind of thing have told me it wouldn't do a lot of good. Her language was too vague. It's a grey area. Even conversion therapy is completely legal in most of the country.

      And I will never see another therapist unless she's queer.

    2. Wow! Was this recent? Do you have any idea of when it would be published? What do you think piqued that reporter's interest?

      Ahhh, okay. If she really used the term "autogynephilia" that may be concrete enough, since it isn't a real thing (not real period, but in terms of ethics, not in the DSM-5 or ICD.) Also, while I'm unsure whether it violates ethical code, that she basically hid from you when you were upset with her and wanted an explanation certainly calls into question her capacity to be a competent professional. You may not be the only one who has had that kind of experience with her, btw.

      Honestly, the part where you described her going all passive-aggressive after you corrected her makes me think, maybe she has power/control issues? Like an "I'm the expert" attitude. Which is a bad attitude for a therapist to have.

      I googled her and pulled up her profile and it's honestly a pretty weird career trajectory. Also, it seems somewhat embellished at least. Some of the positions and programs listed don't even seem to exist (anymore?) Also "faculty at Penn State" aka... a lecturer. Not faculty XD Even taking it at more face value kind of weird to go from those positions at those hot-shot institutions to... being a lecturer at Penn State and practicing locally on the side. The "regularly conducts research... twin studies... bgenetics...etc" first, those things are 'sketchy' in the first place and might get her laughed out of the room in some circles and second, all of the papers listed on google scholar at least are either with what is presumably her husband, or that Bailey guy. Which isn't a good sign. I don't want to speculate too much but that sounds like a trajectory someone denied tenure would take. At least, it doesn't signal someone who is particularly good at what they do.

    3. Oh, yeah, she's a total fucking hack, there's just nothing technically illegal about that. The article is still in the early stages and I piqued the reporter's interest by contacting her myself. I've been beating the bushes telling anyone who will listen about the cunt. Chasing her out of town has become something of a long term pet project of mine.

    4. Yeah, that's a tough one. I think boards go by the state code of ethics when looking for violations, and violations may or may not be illegal by law. One common example is therapists getting sacked for sleeping with their clients (I think it's one of the more common board investigations) even if that isn't technically illegal unless the client's a minor

    5. "The article is still in the early stages and I piqued the reporter's interest by contacting her myself."

      That's a brave thing to do, and even though I'm a stranger on the internet, I'm proud of you! What do your friends/family think? Also, there should be an LGBTQA+ center on campus that might have resources. Is there a queer community you can talk to?

      What do you think the reporter's gonna write on/who would be interviewed? Also if she's an employee at the school, would contacting her department be an option?

      Also, while I'm not her, with things like this I wouldn't necessarily expect any remorse from her, if that's something you might want. While I can't say anything definitive, it's possible she might be one of those Jordan Peterson "intellectual dark web" freeze peach types. In which case she may interpret any backlash towards her as PC oppression or something like that. Certainly the Bailey guy seems like one of those types. But again I'm not them so I can't say for sure.

    6. I go to a couple of queer groups now and it's been extremely helpful and they have been overwhelmingly supportive. I'm grateful for your support as well, kind stranger.

      The reporter is an intern. I have know idea where she's going with this but I'm not going to let her forget it until something gets published.

      I'm sure Dr. Dawood will play the victim. As far as I'm concerned, she can play whatever the fuck she wants as long as the public knows the score and she gets the fuck out of Dodge.

    7. BTW, since you saw her, she has to keep a record of it. (Therapists have to keep records/notes of every session for every client.) You are within your right to request your records. It would be illegal for them to deny it to you.

      The reporter would probably have to write things that are substantiated, otherwise it might be considered slander. It's possible that there are things in your record that would help substantiate problems you have with her. She would need more info than just your word of mouth, is all I'm saying. Also, if she really used the term autogynophilia but didn't note it down in your record, that is also an ethical violation. I assume she did actually use the term since your blogpost suggested you never heard of it until you met with her? If the labels she brought up to you are not in the DSM or ICD, that is an ethical violation. All DSM and ICD conditions have a code that the therapist would need to record in the records. Autogynophilia very obviously doesn't have that. I know you keep saying "grey areas" and "not illegal" but honestly, your blog post suggests a pretty concrete, cut-and-dry case. Enough that you might possibly have a case for a civil lawsuit especially if it is noted in your record. It's all up to you, just presenting possibilities.

  3. BTW here are some links that showed up when I googled her name.

    1. Thanks. I don't know who you are but you clearly know your shit. I don't know a lot about this kind of thing but I'm gonna keep pushing until I get somewhere. One thing I've got plenty of is time. Peace.

  4. Good luck in your decisions! I thought the links might be helpful, both for you and for the reporter if you choose to stick with this route :)

    1. Thanks. You've been a lot of help. I've sent the reporter the links. Peace.

  5. Gays and trannies have always been over represented in libertarian and anti-state circles. I give you folks credit for that. What would really warm my heart would be to see African Americans reject the State in the same kind of numbers. Maxine Waters is one of the most disgusting sellouts and hypocrites Democrats have ever come up with. It is really too bad conservatives are using her to advance opposite side of the aisle fascism.
