Feminism 0, Patriarchy 1
Some people speculate that James Mason may have molested Chris Mason as a child. If so, then why wasn’t he treated for the trauma that abuse caused, instead of being allowed to transition into a male-woman and marry his abuser? Also, if so, the entire case will show just how sick patriarchy is and to what extremes the patriarchy will go to cover up how adult males rape children (both female and male children, but disproportionately female). Nevertheless, I’m not really comfortable with the notion of molestation made a person however they are, it seems a little homophobia-ish.
However, going with the speculation (and conviction) that Mason murdered (by using his younger, larger, and heavier body) his husband out of greed, then how does his transitioning to a a male-woman and subsequent behavior subvert the patriarchy, thus, contribute to feminism? He will not be seen as an individual (a woman who used to be a man, therefore was socially conditioned to take on the behaviors that society assign to the masculine gender), but a representative of the whole of women. Women are seen as a collective when a lone woman murders her husband or child. Only men are afforded individual status when it comes to socially unacceptable behaviors. Murdering a man is indeed a socially unacceptable behavior, unlike the excuses afforded to men who murder women. (She made him do it. She drove him to it. She cheated. He lost his job so it is understandable that he murdered his entire family, etc).
I can read the argument on the MRA boards now. “Yall accepted him as a woman, therefore, we can use him as a perfect example of wives murdering husband.” Hence, it will be taken that wives/girlfriends/ex-girlfriends/members of THE oppressed class in the patriarchy (FAB women) murder husbands (MAB, men) equal to husbands (MAB men) murdering wives/girlfriends/ex-girlfriends/members of THE oppressed class in the patriarchy (FAB women). Thanks for that added statistic Chris Mason. It is not as if FAB women do not already have to deal with inflated statistics that serve misogynists’ agendas.
(AP) James M. Mason knew his wife since she was born a boy. The janitor and former military man was a boarder in the child’s home and was treated like family. […]
He [the murdered husband] was in his 70s, she [the murdering male-woman] in her 30s. He [the murdered victim] was mild-mannered; she [the male-woman murderer] had a domineering personality.
In a patriarchy (in which we live in) being tracked into fucktoydom is not a privilege over being tracked into kingship (even if said future king does not want his position as king). Having said the preceding, I am not condoning or desiring that the separation continue, I am simply stating a fact of the patriarchy. Patriarchy divides children into future kings and future fucktoys/ service providers based on sex at birth.
Repeatedly I’ve read tales of the male born who feels/felt like a girl/woman. What he often describes is what it feels like to be a girl/woman according to the narrative set forth by the patriarchy. In other words, his feelings coincide with the feminine gender that the patriarchy has constructed. The very gender narrative that men (the oppressor), the patriarchy have always defined, shaped, and enforced.
When a male-woman talks about being tormented as a child, his torment is not the same or equal to the torment a female born child is subjected to. It should not even be compared because they are completely different experiences. His torment is at the expense of being at the bottom of the kings and not complying with their wishes. Her torment is at the expense of being placed secondary to all male borns. She is groomed to accommodate a servicing position for and to come second to every single potential king, —including the ones who do not want to be kings. The patriarchy does not care what she feels either. If she does not feel like becoming a service provider/fucktoy, regardless of how much she does not want it, she is still treated and tracked as a future fucktoy/service provider. What happens to him has nothing at all to do with how he feels (the same for her). Nothing. The patriarchy is a soulless beast. His feelings are not taken in account when the doctor sees his penis and declares him a male. His feelings are not taken in account when the box is marked male at school. His feelings are not taken in account when teachers, parents, and other students look at him and label him a boy. His feelings have absolutely nothing to do with any of it. His feelings are left for him and him alone to sort out when he no longer has to legally participate (such as being school age) in an institutional system (education) that enforces gender roles.
Just a note for the nit pickers who want to avert. First, there is nothing positive about being domineering. Nothing. It is a tyrannical behavior, —learned or innate. It is a behavior that must be discouraged, unless of course one wants a power-over system such as patriarchy to survive. The patriarchy teaches and rewards dominance. A CEO who hostilely takes over another company is patted on the back. The boy who uses physical force to knock all the other boys off the dirt pile becomes the king of the hill. His boyish violence is rewarded. The man who can beat another man in a fight is view as the superior man. A husband who beats his wife into submission is simply viewed as a man who is taking control of his family. A country’s army that can dominate another country’s army is viewed as the winner. To dominate is to be patriarchal. To be domineering is to perpetuate the status quo. Behaviors encouraged and learned since birth are not easily jettisoned and disappeared simply because a man chops off his penis.
Chris Mason was domineering because he learned to be domineering. He was rewarded for being domineering and it was why he resorted to domineering violence to achieve the prize his eyes were on when murdered (dominated) his husband for money.
Then, last summer, there was another surprise: Chris Mason was accused of exercising her frail husband to death so she could inherit his retirement benefits, in an attack caught on surveillance video. Police say she forced James Mason, who had heart disease, to do stressful activity in an indoor pool for more than two hours. […]
Her sister is domineering, “although I hate to say it,” while James Mason was very gentle and laid back, Vondrasek said. She told police she once saw her daughter flip a chair while James Mason was sitting in it, putting a hole in a wall. She said she saw James Mason standing with his nose to a wall in the corner of the living room because, he told her, his wife had ordered it. Neighbors at times heard yelling and objects being thrown in the couple’s apartment and complained to a Geauga County social service agency that checks on the safety of the elderly, said Middlefield Police Chief Joseph Stehlik. A security videotape shows Chris Mason pulling her husband by his arms and legs on June 2, tossing and dunking him. Sometimes he clings to the side of the pool and his wife pulls him away. She appears to block his path as he tries to get out of the water — 43 times, by the police chief’s count. […] His [The murdered husband] widow [the male-woman] was involved in a bar fight in December and was jailed after her personal bond was revoked, said Prosecutor David Joyce. She was banned from another bar she frequently visited. “She was getting obnoxious, and the owner told her she had to stay out of here,”said Tracy Hall, a bartender at Middlefield Tavern. “She liked to flirt with all the guys who come in here.” […]
But James Mason’s half-sister, Cinda Meyer, said Chris Mason appeared to show little grief. “She had him cremated, and she called and told me to come and pick up the ashes and do something with them,” said Meyer, of Seville in northeast Ohio. “She was pretending to be a grieving widow.”
No, this story I present here will be classified as an isolated case. And the anti-feminist aspect of transsexuality as proven by the story will be swept under the rug. Entitled men will continue utilizing the stories of less fortunate people to promote a white males first agenda. MTF transsexuals trying to dominate and set the agenda for feminism are exercising the same domineering behavior that Chris Mason illustrated. MTF’s political actions toward feminists display the same violent and domineering behavior homophobe-brutes do toward minority transssexuals.
The Chris Masons of the world are not doing a thing for feminism. Transsexuality is not doing a thing for feminism.
