UNE JOURNEE ROUGE

Il est temps.

Je sens bien que, depuis quelques jours, elles veulent sortir, qu'elles sont prêtes à s'incarner, à me défier. Je sens bien que moi, je dois leur faire face.

Il est temps.

Je ne sais pas si je suis prêt. J'ai toujours fait en sorte d'anticiper, de préparer les combats du mieux possible avant de me lancer dans chaque bataille. Aujourd'hui je sens encore la profondeur de mes blessures. Mon coeur est endolori. Mon esprit est une flamme fragile malmenée par le vent.

Pourtant je me tiens debout avec mes bandages et mes cicatrices. J'ai connu des jours meilleurs. Mes cheveux ont blanchi. J'ai été plus fringuant.

Pourtant ma main tient fermement le pommeau de mon épée qui s'agite dans son fourreau. Je sais que je vais souffrir, que je vais avoir mal. Mes bras ont déjà levé maintes fois mon bouclier d'airain. Mes jambes m'ont déjà porté à travers des champs incendiés.

Pourtant je n'ai jamais été aussi certain de l'issue d'une confrontation.

Il est temps de régler les comptes. Il est temps d'avancer. Il est temps.

Your Brand New Combination Boiler

Combi or Combionation boilers are popular since they deliver practically immediate hot water taking barely one or two seconds to warm up. It will not must a distinct cold water cistern, or a hot water cylinder and this variety of boiler is outstanding for those who live in a smaller house or flat.

A downside is generally which is when that you are using more than one hot tap within the house the water pressure may drop and the flow decreased.

Why Not Think About Typical Boiler

This kind of boiler can be known as a regular or heat only boiler. This arrangement does pipe the hot water not only to your cylinder but additionally across your rads too. Plus, for the reason that hot water is definitely continuously available you can actually utilize as many taps as you need with no loss of water pressure. 
The downside could be the dimensions which is a great deal larger and there does exist in addition the necessity for tanks for both hot and cold water, although many households store them in the loft. Hot water is restricted by the volume the cylinder can hold and they do necessitate a programmable controls.

System Boilers

These work in the same way to the traditional boiler. The main distinction is the system boiler has added pieces incorporated into it meaning it's easier around the set up process. In terms of a system boiler you won't want a separate supply or extension container.
And, certainly one of the leading upsides is that these systems permit the "back up" of an immersion heater giving a failsafe in case of tragedy or breakdown. Decide on a mains supplied hot water cylinder and there will be no requirement to have a cold water tank within the roof space .

First, I want to start out with a few things: Pointing out transandrophobia is not transmisogynist.

This particular post is not about the long-wretching transmisogyny roaming around on Fediverse and you shouldn't go harassing me for not speaking about it.

If your only takeaway from that is “oh you must hate trans women” or that I'm trying to dogpile on anyone, learn how to read and come back.

This post is not your free pass to be shitty to trans women either. Baeddel is not a slur and is not used as one, but that will be explained later.

Also, if you expect screenshots and piles of “evidence”, GTFO. This is not a callout post on specific people.

In latest weeks (at the time of writing this) I have noticed a surge in transandrophobic rhetoric being spewn around. While one might argue that it can be because of the Tumblr exodus, they are damn wrong; transandrophobia is not new to Fediverse.

So what was the first known incident?

Let's go back to late 2022 — the big Twitter wave has slowed down and all started going well in the Fediverse; multiple queer people with the skills and money created instances, some of them existing to this very day. Trans men of fediverse weren't that different. Two of them set up an instance under the (obviously) non-defunct domain social.transmas.cyou. The Akkoma server was barely even getting on its legs, and the admins were already smacked by a self-proclaimed baeddel (we will get to that word soon); one person making several accounts on several instances, throwing straight up heinous shit at the admins, and even pedojacketing one of them. The staff eventually dissolved the community in a matter of weeks, and rumors say they are nowhere to be found on Fediverse.

But one can say that it can be just a boogeyman, right? There is no proof whatsoever besides hearsay, the instance is long gone, admins nowhere to be found, nor the troll account; all evidence is gone. But not all hearsay is false hearsay. Sometimes oral memoirs are the only evidence when everything else has been erased. You don't want to believe me? Fine.

You say “baeddel” all the time — what the fuck is that?

note: if you want a truly in-depth dive into the origins of the movement, read this – my paragraph is solely to TLDR the entire issue

Baeddelism... In ye olde Tumblr days, there was this clique of trans women who called themselves “baeddels” — based on the somewhat questionable etymology of the word “bad”, they have build what I would basically call a fork of TERF ideology. Their main ideas consisted of:

  • transmisogyny is the core of all oppression, all oppression stems from transmisogyny specifically (does that ring you a bell?)
  • your CASAB (coercively assigned sex at birth) determines the oppression you experience (or its lack); that is CAFAB people are evil and oppressive, while CAMAB people were the victims, as they were the only one experiencing transmisogyny

Does that sound familiar? LOUD CORRECT BUZZER! It's bioessentialism and radfem garbage all over again! Baeddel movement is nothing but forking radical feminism and making it work within the transgender framework; the legacy of the original tumblr clique (that did groom several young trans women into these beliefs, much like cis radfems groom young cis women into TERF ideology) can be seen is something as common as the TME/TMA descriptors, which neatly fills the first pillar of baeddel ideology.

You may now say how does a Tumblr clique affect those who probably never were there or anything?

Word of mouth. Baeddelism was huge in early 2010s on Tumblr. They kept grooming younger trans women into this idea, more trans women kept talking baeddelist talking points and thus it spread like wildfire.

Today, “baeddelism” fell out of use since the original group has been long gone, but its ideas never went away. It's just they are now more known as TIRF ideology, as.. is it really that different from TERFs? Not really.

It's all radical feminism that is grounded in hatred of men and masculinity, just remapped outside of the cis society.

Baeddelism/TIRFism on Fediverse

I have seen a non-zero amount of encounters where a transfemme user goes onto a transmasc's vent post and makes it all about herself. I have seen a non-zero amount of “I hope you die” replies when TIRF beliefs are pointed out by a transmasc guy.

It should have never happened — this is, once again, a proof of how transmasc struggles are downplayed or even straight up ignored.

It's all radfem shit over again. The belief that should've died already years ago is still well and alive in (not all of!) Fedi's transfemme community; even if they refuse to admit so or aren't aware of it. But it is not our job to unpack it for them. We as transmascs can only encourage trans women to unpack the internalized radfem garbage and educate on it, but we cannot do the unpacking for them.

A less aggressive but still hostile example of TIRFism, albeit more thickly veiled is how transmascs are well liked and cherished as long as they are feminine. The moment they go on T, start being actually masculine (as opposed to the femboy archetype); they are no longer welcome and needed.

If Fedi doesn't have a transandrophobia problem, then where are spaces for transmasculine people? There is a lot of transfemme-focused spaces (good for you!), why can't we have the same thing?

Cause it will meet the same fate as transmas.cyou? Cause, maybe, this will only make transandrophobia worse?

Because it then would be a way better target for those who dedicate their online presence to TIRF garbage. It's common on certain Fediverse instances to smear and trash on transmascs, and you will even get cheered on for doing so. (and you know who I am talking about.)

There's no queer community if y'all don't include trans men and transmasculine people on it. Transfemmes aren't the only ones who are part of the “trans”, you know. If you say “trans”, include transfemmes, transmascs, transneutrals — the entire fucking umbrella of transness.

That should go without saying, but I know there will be an amount of bad-faithers among readers who will try to tell me I am trying to say all transfemmes are TIRFs or that somehow I'm transmisogynist. Pointing out flaws is not transmisogynist and if you have to take only one thing of it, then take the following:

Everyone is capable of holding radfem beliefs, you dipshit. It comes free with living in a society poisoned by said garbage mostly thanks to TERFs.

And it's our collective job to clean our yards from radfem shit. Including transfemmes. Was I not clear enough when I said everyone is capable of it?

If your takeaway is that I am trying hard at transmisogyny, take a break and re-read it. Rinse and repeat that until you understand what is this post about.

Acknowledging transandrophobia is not transmisogynist, and acknowledging transmisogyny is not transandrophobic.

Pointing out transfemmes are capable of transandrophobia is not transmisogynist, nor the other way.

We should be working together to remove both (and more) flavors of transphobia. However with the Tumblr exodus (do I have to remind where did TIRF originate from?) it may be difficult, as many people are eager to carry over the hostility and transandrophobia from their hellsite to here.

Do your work and get your shit together.

I shouldn't be making these disclaimers, but knowing how vile Fedi can be, I have to.

Go and harass me. cya.

Changes

It's positively so much more peaceful in my life since I totally closed all of my social media accounts and it's been no real adjustment in my life or behavior to stop falling for the “It's friends and family that keeps me there” excuse. These platforms are totally toxic and everyone can't get enough. It's quite baffling.

In full disclosure, I kept one mastodon account and accounts with mostly “Tech” content or more topics I'm interested in just to read. But I rarely post anything. I'd rather post my micro-posts here. It lets me get it out of me so I can devote time to other endeavors.

But turning off the news and closing social media to my life has been one of the best decisions I've ever made!
