Where Are All the Tranny Dudes In Politics?

November 13, 2017

Depending on your perspective, this either proves that voters are deeply transphobic, or they simply don’t like people who openly lie to them.

The international record abounds with stories of men who fib to the public about their gender and are rewarded with political office as a result.

In Poland, a beast of a man who calls himself Anna Grodzka became an openly transgender Polack MP in 2011. I do not know whether Grodzka has a surgically implanted vagina, but if he does, I vaguely suspect that it smells like three-day-old pierogis.

In Italy, a gender-confused communist who calls himself Vladimir Luxuria served as a Member of Parliament from 2006-2008.

In India, an absolutely hideous fat dude named Shabnam Mausi served as a state legislator from 1998 to 2003.

And in Japan—the only country I’ve found in my research where female-to-male trannies outnumber male-to-female ones—an extremely glum-looking gent named Aya Kamikawa
bucked the national trend and served in Tokyo’s municipal government as a MTF tranny from 2001-2003.

Unfortunately for the egalitarian-minded and those who wish to believe that the current transgender craze is anything more than a reaction to a culture that demonizes maleness, Japan stands as a sole exception to the global one-way tranny stampede, which overwhelmingly involves men proclaiming that they’re women.

Studies in Europe from the 1980s and 1990s found that when it comes to declaring you’re not the “gender you were assigned at birth,” men chose to become women at anywhere from 2.3 to 4 times the clip that women chose to become men. A study in England from the 1970s found that men chose to be women three times as often as women decided to be men.

Even more overwhelmingly lopsided is this Wikipedia page on “Transgender and transsexual politicians.” Of 45 international tranny pols listed, only two were born women. The rest were born men.

I strongly suspect that the current tranny mania which infects and clogs up so much of our popular discussion does not represent some new, bold, post-gender frontier in human development. If it did, the genders would be swapping genitals at an almost equal rate. But since it’s almost entirely male-to-female, I sense it’s nothing more than a cultural reaction to the fact that in the current climate, there’s almost nothing good about being a man.
