Declaration about the phenomenon-given impossibility of a common representation of the interests of classic transsexual people (NGS) on the one hand and anyone affected by gender, be it transgender or other trans* people on the other hand, through LGBT*Q / Trans*-lobby organizations.
In the last few years there has been an increasing hostility towards transsexuals in the deliberate public presentation and in the thematization of the phenomenon; The LGBT* Q / Trans* community in particular makes a significant contribution to this. The aggressive coercion of classic transsexuality (NGS) through "gender diversity" and the unquestioned public allocation and imposing of opposite-sex lifestyles, as is usual for the self-image of the political lobby representatives for trans* people, forces us, as VTSM, into the representation of the interests of relevant and clearly transsexual people to make a statement on this.
Transsexual people have preoperatively a genital body problem (NGS). However, they know that they clearly belong to their true gender, and undoubtedly see themselves either as a man or as a woman, but never non-binary as "neither / nor" or as "both and".
In this respect, there are no phenomenal similarities with transgender people or other trans* affected persons, who are often aware of their true sex, which is in accordance with the sex assigned to them at birth, and who, for whatever reasons, always play an opposite-gender role and prefer a way of life for themselves, or some of them who can't or do not want to assign themselves sexually.
About 40 years ago there were only the terms "transsexuality" on the one hand and "transvestism" on the other hand for the different phenomena. With the coining of the term "gender", which goes back to the behaviorist John Money, a conceptual confusion and blurring of these different phenomena was initiated. In the light of the "cognitive turnaround", the behaviorist concept of Money is now based on a paradigmatically completely outdated view. The reduction of gender to overt and socially influential gender roles denies all naturally existing knowledge backgrounds about one's own biological-neural sex system.
The constant attempts to impose new terms on transsexual people, such as the terms transgender, trans* person or transgender, which can be traced back to Money and which have been evident for decades, prove the deliberate efforts of the deliberate confusion of terms. These serve to force transsexual people (NGS) to co-opt, to make them invisible and silenced, to deny them their sex.
In our view, this is an indescribable, disgusting process, which we profoundly reject and which we strongly oppose.
As long as LGBT*Q or Trans*-interest groups do not explicitly and unequivocally publicly advocate making it clear that transsexuality is about the recognition of the neuro-genitally coherent sex (NGS), and not about a gender identity, and also do nothing actively with it in order that transsexuality is not mixed with the gender phenomenon and instead remains visible as an independent phenomenon, as long as such interest groups act this way, they do not have in the right to claim that they "represent transsexual people".
Transsexuality, as neurogenital syndrome (NGS), is an independent phenomenon, independent of any gender issue, it is a physical problem. People after genital reassignement surgery are fully fledged women or men, which a real interest group like VTSM e.V. must and will explicitly represent in a publicly effective manner!
Through many allegations and misrepresentations of transsexuality (NGS), the LGBT*Q / Trans*-lobby-community loses any right to speak for transsexual people (NGS) and to participate in decision-making.
The VTSM e.V. as a representative of the interests of transsexual people (NGS) deprives the LGBT*Q / Trans*-community of any authorization to talk, to find or even to decide over our heads about our concerns, needs and realities.
