New York Magazine celebrates female sexual self-harm
New York magazine uses her cover photo to celebrate a woman who cut her breasts and had a tube of flesh surgically added from her leg to her groin.
The article by author Gabriel Mac is titled: âMy Penis, Myself; I didn’t need a penis to be a man. But I needed one to be me.
The posting is a visceral, anti-feminine rejection of women and their bodies, says a barrage of comments from stunned women.
“Most of us have had body dysmorphia and a traumatic sexual experience and we are now seeing an abandonment of femininity celebrated as the solution” tweeted Sall Grover, CEO of a women’s social media company. “It’s too sad to understand,” she tweeted.
âIt’s not true that you can change your gender – it’s just not true,â said Natasha Chart, professional counselor for nonprofit groups. So surgery and the burden of long-term health care cannot be a solution to the unfair civic and gender pressures that lead so many young people to try to change their sex with knives, she said.
âWhat’s nice to say is ‘I see you are struggling, I don’t think it will help you cut any parts of the body,’â Chart told Breitbart News.
Comments on Twitter echoed this combination of pity and sympathy for the surgically altered woman:

Me too. This is if I looked at the hatred of women written in the flesh.

“It’s horrible” noted a tweet from @RecklessGoddess. âAs a teenager I felt that my own body was a danger to me and I wanted to escape it, but thank goodness being slaughtered like that was not an option in the 80s. I have want to escape femininity, but THAT is not the answer.
“It’s not a cure, it’s a symptom” tweeted @ KodaScott1. âAll I see in this story is a woman’s dark and desperate solution, or the reflection / staging of how much women are hated, and the appalling effects of male violence on the psyche.
âIt’s not even the actual surrender,â of femininity, @Bornnotwork said. “This is the celebration of it.”
It produced in me a visceral sense of rage and sadness and hopelessness and a complete misunderstanding of why women’s pain is butchered and distorted for public viewing and corporate gain.

Social conservatives are also appalled by the magazine’s celebration of self-harm. Rod Dreher at The American Conservative wrote:
It is important to understand that Gabriel Mac (i.e. a person like her) is a hero of the cultural left of our country, who, having taken control of the institutions of American society – including, like you Read it on this blog, the The US Army – Strives to Force All of America to accept that Gabriel Mac, a mentally ill, phallus-obsessed woman who now has both a Frankenpenis and a vagina , is, in fact, a man.
We are crazy. We are decadent. And we are going to fall hard.
You might want to believe that you can get away with ignoring this phenomenon, attributing it to the cultural fringes. You cannot be more wrong. The ideology that celebrates what Gabriel Mac has done to himself is normative among America’s elites, and that means it controls the future of our society. This ideology comes for you and your children. You better wake up now.
Mac, the author, has a tortured story that ties in with his journalistic coverage of war-torn countries.
In the New York magazine article, Mac tried to explain her radical, life-changing surgery:
If there was anything I had learned during the transition, it was that what was right for me was rarely what, according to my patriarchal, heterosexist, racist, capitalist acculturation, “made sense” – this who, obviously, could only be to live as a sexually available cute-lady ship capable of carrying white babies. It’s impossible to articulate and maybe even know exactly why my vagina is such an integral part of my power and my personality. âI can’t wait to be more masculine so that I can be more feminine,â I wrote in newspapers when I started the transition and realized, although I didn’t quite understand why, that it was what I needed.
The driving force behind the transgender trend is the unfair treatment of women and the increasingly toxic pressure of online pornography and social media on young women, said Chart, a left-wing feminist.
People need to solve civic and personal issues without resorting to quick pseudo-cures, she said. For example, people recognize that miracle cures cannot solve their desire to eat a lot and stay slim, she said:
Everyone knows how to be healthy. They know you can’t overeat. You need to exercise more. Everyone knows it. But what people want is some kind of pill that they can take so they don’t have to do this work of control and exercise. We want the easy way. Everyone wants this. There is nothing to be ashamed of. But you have to struggle with [reality] and seek out what is productive.
The message to young women facing sexual and gender pressures, she said, should be understanding and support, not surgical rejection of their gender: âLook, I know you struggle with life, I can tell. But this [sex change option] this is not true. “
Continuation of the graphic:
Up to [sympathetic] people can really struggle with that [message], there is no solution because they will continue to struggle to want to be nice and not realize that … accept this untruth [of sex change by hormones and sex change] means telling young women in difficulty that they need to go for a breast cut, it means telling young men in difficulty that castration is probably a better option.
The civic problem is compounded by progressive men who are eager to play down their gender-biased rejection of women, she said. “Progressive men believe they are not sexist, never … so, therefore, they don’t have to listen to women … women don’t have the power to speak out against this within of the progressive movement, âshe said.
“They are following a dangerous path where all these people whom they have applauded in the [transgender] clinic – and their parents – will come to them someday, âshe said.
Less than one percent of people describe themselves as transgender, and less than ten percent have cosmetic surgery on their genitals.
The transgender movement is diverse, with competing goals and priorities.
The movement includes the masculine autogynephilic men who demand sex with lesbians, apolitical people who try to live as idealized stereotypes of the opposite sex, and prepubescent children with childish views of sexuality.
It includes troubled young men who imagine themselves to be light morals, lesbian women trying to become men, troubled teenage girls trying to escape a toxic sexual atmosphere, gay teens who are pushed into an attempt at sex. transgender identity and young people trying to “”of transitionâBack to their gender.
It includes feminists who wish to blur the lines between the two sexes, as well as people who enhance the distinctions between the two complementary sexes.
The transgender environment also includes revenue-seeking pharmaceutical companies and medical service providers, wealthy donors, ambitious politicians and professional advocates. It also includes sexual liberators and many progressives who are eager to liberate people from their bodies, as well as parents which are eager Where willing at endorse transgender claims.
