Trans men are not only stripping women of awards and sports championships, they are now also leading feminist organizations, which completely smacks in the face their idea of “patriarchy.”
According to LifeSiteNews, the largest feminist organization in Quebec elected a transgender man, Gabrielle Bouchard, as their new president. The 49-year-old Bouchard hails from Concordia University’s Center for Gender Advocacy. His Twitter handle is “Gabbi_unicorn.”
The Federation des Femmes du Quebec is basically the Canadian version of America’s NOW, and “represents some 300 feminist groups and about 700 individual members.”
Bouchard’s appointment has not gone over well in some of Quebec’s media circles, saying that placing a man as head of a feminist organization only serves to reinforce the patriarchy. Bouchard rejects such claims.
“They are saying we’ll tolerate trans women as long as they are not in a position of power,” Bouchard told Canadian Press. “We’ll tolerate lesbians in the movement as long as they stand 10 feet away.”
He accuses the critics of falling into a patriarchal construct that “presumes all women live the same experience — which is not true.”
“All the barriers I face are actually based in sexism,” he said. “They also happen to be based in transphobia. I am living at the intersection of trans identity and being a woman, and it creates a marginalization that some women don’t face.”
Journal du Montreal writer Denise Bombardier wrote two columns critical of Bouchard’s election. “Who is this man who became a woman as an adult?” she questioned. “How can she speak on behalf of all women, as someone who was raised in a masculine culture, ignoring the experiences that women have lived through since they were born?”
Campaign Life Quebec president Georges Buscemi called Bouchard’s election evidence that Western civilization has gone insane.
“How much more do we need to prove that Western civilization has gone insane?” he told LifeSiteNews. “There’s a man at the head of the women’s association.”
