Eddie Izzard: 'I consider being trans a superhero thing - but if I'd lived in Nazi Germany I'd have been murdered for it'
She tells Sky News: "I consider being trans a superhero thing - I wanted to put it in a very positive light with superheroes because some people are so negative about LGBT stuff.
"I've been out and open about it since 1985, it's a long time… And if we go back to the 1930s, if I've been in Nazi Germany, I would have been murdered for saying that I was trans.

“British comedian Eddie Izzard, who recently asked to be identified with “she” and “her” pronouns, is coming out in defense of author J.K. Rowling’s stance on transgender issues.
“I don’t think J.K. Rowling is transphobic. I think we need to look at the things she has written about in her blog,” Izzard, 58, told the Daily Telegraph in a new interview.
“Women have been through such hell over history,” the star added in reference to the controversy surrounding the Harry Potter author’s comments. “Trans people have been invisible, too. I hate the idea we are fighting between ourselves, but it's not going to be sorted with the wave of a wand. I don't have all the answers. If people disagree with me, fine — but why are we going through hell on this?”

Were there trans people killed in the Holocaust. This is what they’re shouting now. Of course, what trans actually is defined as changes to fit the narrative. Sounds like Stonewall revisionism. Someone actually asked a TRA when these people transitioned and they responded: “Oh, you’re only trans if you medically transition?” They also said that all the names of these trans people murdered were lost. lol

Staying off the inflammatory subject matter for a moment...
Most females who are raised sensibly and responsibly are taught and advised at a young age to trust instinct/inner alarms and avoid men who give off creepy vibes, just to steer well clear even with no hard evidence that they're creepy. Eddie is one such man. It's not my purview to speculate further or inquire why; he's just creepy according to my safety radar, and that's good enough for me to ignore what he says, not engage with or about him, and advise others to do the same.

There was lots of cross-dressing during WWII. Some of it stemmed from a German a carnival tradition that mocks women, which of course was “acceptable.” As someone noted earlier, even the Nazis participated in cross-dressing. But there were gay Nazis as well, most notably Hitler’s close friend Ernst Röhm, yet the Nazis persecuted transvestites, transsexuals, and gays for deviant behavior. They were all sent to the camps and worked to death or executed.

R98, no one is talking about wanting anyone dead. And right wing issues are not feminist and have nothing to do with feminism; nor does feminism ally itself with homophobia and gender discrimination. The right wing power is mostly concentrated in right wing men, not by “radical feminists” who by being radical are in favor of a society where gender doesn’t matter and everyone is free. And right wing women are not “radical feminists”.

[quote]Rescue chick is not wrong about cross dressing Nazis
It's irrelevant, r73. These troll cunts bring this stuff up to deflect from the fact that one of their heroes, that Posie Whatever lady, asked for the far right "boys" to support her at marches, and sure enough, actual Nazis with flags and salutes and everything, DID. These trans-haters all marched together, and Rescue Chick, as grotesque as she is, is at least smart enough to know that it's a bad look.
She's bringing up random Nazi facts to deflect, and you're helping her. Why?
It's just like when the Buffalo massacre guy's manifesto had "drop the T" in it and the trolls got quiet for a few weeks, knowing how bad it looked. Or when the "Don't Say Gay" bill was first introduced. They left for a few days and then came back, organized, with talking points like "it's not actually about gays" or "it's only going to be Grade 3 and lower."
Again, why are you defending any of this?

Let me tell you something, R141. A society "where gender doesn’t matter" is a society in which women have no rights as a class. Picture this: if it doesn't matter, why, then, have gender-based protections for women enshrined in law? Do you think men and women are equal in violence, for example? Are men and women equal in strength, physically? They are not. They never will be.
Gender matters. Sit down and think about it. And if you believe "this place [is] not worth the fucking effort", find another one.

R144, I mean radical feminists are not talking about wanting people dead, not Nazis. And by “radical feminists” I don’t mean anyone who was at that right wing event. Radical feminists want gender to be of no consequence and no importance. And there are very few radical feminists anywhere or radicals of any type.

The vast majority of funding on the far right comes from conservative MEN. So you could call them CONS or whatever.

"I consider being a gypsy a superhero thing - but if I'd lived in Nazi Germany . . ."
"I consider being black a superhero thing - but if I'd lived in Nazi Germany . . ."
This has gotten to the point of farce. The actual number of children who evidence signs of serious body dysmorphia by the age of four or five years old is about one-tenth of one percent of the population.
The rest is a sociopolitical force trying to normalise what is, in fact, an aberrant emotional and psychological issue that is serving some other purpose.
And there is no such thing as non-binary. If you were born with an XY set of normal chromosomes, and you have a healthy set of functional cock and balls, you're a male. If you choose to fuck both men and women, you're still a biological male and an adult human male - there's no "non" about it. I don't care who you want to fuck or whether you like wearing dresses more than trousers, as long as nonconsenting other entities aren't involved.
You ARE binary: you're an adult human male.

There is a poster here who, in typical fashion, is bullying the women on the thread. There are some simple points being made by women that are fairly commonsensical: 1) for lesbians, we don't like what is happening to baby dykes; 2) women are smaller and more likely to be prey to larger and stronger males who wish to use being trans as a costume to gain access; 3) women have had to fight for any space in sports, with equity and parity never having been achieved, and now must compete against people who are genetically designed from birth to beat them; and, 4) we are sick and fucking tired of being told that our concerns are not important.
I want penises segregated. I don't care what they are attached to. It should come as no surprise. I am a lesbian. I have enjoyed my entire life without seeing a penis. I have also been able to manage my physical safety by keeping men at a distance, other than that one time I was raped. I have played sports with shitty equipment and no bleacher support because Title IX wasn't enforced anywhere. I've seen the ERA languish in Congress for decades. I've staved off physical assaults and verbal harassment by men my entire life. Imagine being a woman in a California prison! You get birth control whether you want it or not because the men using a costume to access women have taken advantage of that access.
I do not have the same problem with FTM transgender people. That's because they are far less likely to assault me. I read the stats. As long as the concerns listed above are addressed, then I support transgender acceptance and have, in fact, practiced it myself. I am generally a pretty loving person. But this rampant disregard of and derision for having genuine fears does not help the transgender movement.

There is a major issue at the moment with TRAs appropriating "The Holocaust" which was mass extermination of Jewish people.
The Nazis didn't build train tracks, concentration camps, gas chambers and furnaces to exterminate disabled people or gender non confirming people, who are by definition NOT victims of The Holocaust.
Of course there were groups other than Jews targeted by the Nazis and subjected to torture and death, however that is separate from The Holocaust.
TRAs feel it's unacceptable for Jews to "monopolise" their suffering at the hands of the Nazis.

R168, there are a very large percentage of trans people who are on medication for mental illness and have been from a young age. Young people, and young women especially, are more likely to be on antidepressants, especially because recent changes have made them more widely prescribed. It’s now up to 1 in 5 adults.
SSRIs block serotonin from re-entering the bloodstream so as to recirculate in the brain. But most of the body’s serotonin is not in the brain; it’s in the gut; that’s where it’s made. So some people theorize that taking antidepressants actually makes mental illness worse, but it’s not the dominant theory and it’s hard to get help if you believe it, especially if you’re already stigmatized for being mentally ill.
One thing I have noticed is that in the US specifically 70 percent of transitioners are FTM, which corresponds to the higher number of XX people who are on psychiatric medications at a younger age. When you view this from the paradigm that medicine causes dysphoria, it makes sense.
But MTF trans women are also suffering from the same side effects; and the side effects of taking and then going off these medications can be horrible. They can be almost impossible to go off of and cause intense distress. The depression also becomes untreatable by medication eventually. So the idea that dysphoria isn’t real in those cases or that trans women would have an advantage in sports is also biased. Many of them are struggling tremendously every day and I have been in that situation myself.
It may be that for people suffering dysphoria, even if it is meditation induced dysphoria, having broad social support for years while you recover from the injury is necessary for survival.
But dysphoria is not necessarily permanent; it can change over time as circumstances and medicines change. I know that from personal experience.

The trans love to rewrite history. Take the recent story of the death of Lucy Salani, supposedly the only Italian transgender to survive the Holocaust. Read beyond the headline and you'll see that he didn't have the op until the 80s. Read his Wikipedia and you'll see that he was actually sent to Dachau for having deserted both the Italian and German armies and wore a red triangle denoting his status as a deserter. Up until the war (and beyond?), he identified as a gay man.
(Obviously one has every sympathy for a gay man who was sent to a camp as well as for someone who deserted the armies of fascist countries. This is about how his story is being presented now.)

Disagree, R171. Especially if the transwoman in question has already gone through male puberty. This is one point where the tide really is turning, more and more sports associations are banning people born male (or, this week, people who have gone through male puberty) from competing in women's sports. This seems fair and right to me, because allowing these people to compete against women leaves certain competitors with a clear unfair advantage. It really has nothing to do with transgenderism so much as it has to do with the rules of fair competition.
If the anti-trans trolls and garbage human beings in this thread were decent people (i.e. if they weren't just here to fearmonger and if they actually, truly cared about women's sport or vulnerable teenagers being misled by biased and hardly qualified 'counselors' - which they don't), they would acknowledge and celebrate this turning of the tide. Notice how they never mention the Tavistock clinic in the UK these days? The one that has been accused of pushing puberty blockers on confused young teens? That's because the UK government SHUT IT DOWN last year!
The trans actually *aren't* coming for us all! Be happy, trolls! You are safe! It's possible to have a nuanced take on this and not to hate anyone.
Also, R171, if that's you at R174 I agree with everything you've said there. I am not anti-trans, I don't believe it's a mental illness (geez, where have we heard the one before? and it wasn't even that long ago!), I am happy to use whatever pronouns someone would prefer me to use.

Story in the Daily Telegraph on 02/27 (twitter capture because the paper is behind a paywall) details what kind of sex/gender instruction the pupils on the Isle of Man were reportedly given. That included a drag queen telling them there are 73 genders, and when a pupil told her there were only two, the DQ allegedly responded 'you've upset me' and made the pupil leave the class. 11-year olds were taught about oral and anal sex, and I'll leave you to read the rest at the link.
There are also disturbing reports out of New Zealand about the TRA physical attacks on the Let Women Speak event and Kellie-Jay Keen. Freedom of speech is non existent if you try to speak about the rights of women publicly.

R202, that's the typical misrepresentation or misunderstanding of 'moral panic'. Moral panics are social contagion phenomena, fully socially conditioned.
The biggest irony - because counterintuitive thinking is hard for many people - is that the bulk of today's trans phenomenon is socially and culturally caused and driven. Take only ROGD - it's the clearest-cut case of social contagion today, driven by social media and peer influence much like the anorexia wave.

As much as I have enjoyed Rescue Chick's recipes, jokes, and saving all those animals, support for fine fragrances, and recommendations on bongs, (I actually purchased one one on behalf her suggestion) why must gay blokes who support trans folk take a backseat here to str8 birds?
THAT is the question. MANY of us support trans folk, whether you like it or not. Don't try to take over this forum, and suggest we shouldn't show our solidarity here... If it bothers any str8 bird so much, perhaps you need to find a new flock! LGBT INCLUDES TRANS!

Eddie Izzard is a misogynist. And too scared to openly debate Kellie-Jay Keen or any other Women's Rights activist. He knows that he can't win that argument.
Men cannot be women. It is impossible to change your sex. Men have NO IDEA of what it is to be a woman because they were not born into a female body. All of their ideas of what a woman is are based on sexist stereotypes and nothing else.
Men can wear what they like, do their hair how they like and call themselves Doris, no one cares. But they don't get to come into female safe spaces because they are not females. Women's safe spaces are there to protect women, not validate men.
Also, keep the trans cult away from children. Transitioning children is child abuse. Conducting medical experiments on children is not acceptable. The Nazi's did that and the world condemned it. Insane doctors do it in the name of trans and suddenly it's acceptable? Watch some detransitioners before you say it's ok. And look at Jazz Jennings and say it's ok.
Do you know what TERF stands for? Tired of Explaining Reality to Fuckwits.

R197 is why women fight. We are sick and tired of being told to shut up. I am a lesbian. If I wanted to be around dicks, I would have spent more time with my father. Screaming "TERF!" doesn't shut us up. Threatening to bash our heads in with a baseball bat sure as fuck will not shut me up. It makes me fight harder and it threatens my bias toward loving and defending marginalized people. Sit down and help us craft ways to make everyone safer. Women are good at that.

I think the (really, if you gave it two seconds of thought) inevitable pushback has begun.
Keir Starmer just stated that "99.9% of women do not have penises" and yadda yadda yadda women's rights cannot be violated by this yadda yadda yadda. Of course, Sir Keir is known not to score heavily in polls amongst women voters here, so put that into the mix, but it's obvious that a slight shift in the direction of the wind is occurring.
The sports arena was the wedge. Of course, news outlets are still using terms like "pregnant people" . . . because, dontcha know, the maternity wards of St. Mary's and the Portland are filled with biological males in labour.
I regret to say, as a male, that the attempts to demand equality of womanliness with biological females right down to pregnancy and childbirth, simply proves that that ole' Y chromosome seems to confer some mysterious right of privilege that we prove over and over again by demonstrating that there is nothing we can't take away from women if we really want it.
Including their link with what for 200 million years of development of homo sapiens has been specifically, ineluctably, and solely belonging to the female of the species. I'll agree that that has sometimes not worked out well for the female of the species, but just the same . . .
We really are nasty lot.

Labour have come a long way in the last 3 years and self ID is now dead in the water.
There is no majority for it whether Labour win the next election or not. What has happened to the SNP is delicious. They played to their activist base not the country and then Isla Bryson came along at the worst possible moment. Sturgeon reckoned on a constitutional fight with Westminster but the Scottish public, even nationalists, agree with Westminster.
What there will be under Labour is a reform of the existing 2004 act, to make the GRA process easier and a change to the Equality Act which makes it clear that sex as a protected characteristic is biological sex not legal sex with further safeguarding protections around single sex spaces and exemptions.
The trans loons will go mental but who the fuck cares.

Most people are kind and empathetic when it comes to gender dysphoria but Eddie Izzard is asking people to accept that he has been transgender for decades when he was always a man who sometimes wore clothes designed for women, and made that a huge part of his act.
This is an actor who has played Nazi officers, con men, Charlie Chaplin, Edward VII, Long John Silver etc. In 4 decades of acting he's never played a female character and he wants people to believe he's been a woman for all that time.
He can fuck off.

When are the transgenders going to be told to stop using the words Nazi and genocide?
The Jewish community and other groups who have actually experienced such events need to start speaking up and condemning the use of such language by transgenders.
Social media companies need to ban TRAs when they use such language as it raises the potential for mentally ill transgenders to kill people who simply disagree with them.
Transgender Dylan Mulvaney has multiple corporate endorsements and he was invited to meet President Biden. There is no genocide.

If you purposely associate with Nazis, you're a Nazi. If you don't object to prominent members of your group purposely associating with Nazis, you're also a Nazi. If you think associating with Nazis is a good thing because they also hate trans people, you are indeed a Nazi.

The first threads about the Nazi incident in Australia (all nuked by now) had many comments from DLers stating how "hawt" they looked, especially their arms and legs in their black shorts and t-shirts.
Wouldn't be surprised if more than a few of the TRAs had a similar attraction to them, although they'd never admit it.

Labour are now backing an amendment to the Equality Act which will specify that sex as a protected characteristic in law means biological sex, not legal sex.
Gender reassignment will also remain a protected characteristic.
Eddie should accept credit for this change being made. He's helped so many people realise what rights females need to have.
