After reading some post online about the so called Cotton Ceiling, I have to believe that their is such thing as a Cotton Ceiling. The so called cotton ceiling is a theory that some trans porn star came up with claiming that feminist, lesbians, women and intersex people ok with trans, but when it comes to Sex and cotton panties, it’s where the ceiling starts and a barrier that divides trans from biological born women, intersex and lesbian. The cotton in the cotton ceiling that women, lesbian and feminist talk about represents sex and it’s one barrier where trans will never ever pass or break through.
One of the other barriers I believe that is so common with the feminist cotton ceiling is the Genetic DNA Ceiling. It’s the same concept as the Cotton ceiling, but the difference is that in the Genetic DNA ceiling, Trans can talk day and night about intersex people and with intersex people, but when it comes to mingling with Intersex people, the genetic DNA barrier is what is going to separate them from the biological born intersex people. In the genetic DNA barrier, if they are not born intersex from birth, they don’t have the common experience, upbringing and life experience as a biological born intersex person. They are not intersex no matter how you frame it. Even the without the confirmed medical diagnosis as an intersex person, they can claim all they want. No one is going to believe that they are intersex, without showing genetic DNA proof or showing physical signs of intersex.
In the Genetic DNA barrier, it’s a barrier that separates biological born intersex people from those in the trans community. It tells them that since they are not intersex and are not biologically born from birth as an intersex person. They are not welcomed in the intersex community and can not share the intimate life experience, upbringing and life history that intersex people have gone through. They can be allies, but they can never share intimately what it means to be born intersex from birth and cane never share all the things of what it means to be intersex from birth. It’s one of those barriers that separates real biological born intersex people from those who like to pretend to be intersex and those in the trans community.
As an intersex person, I believe the Cotton ceiling has the same commonality with the genetic DNA ceiling. In the Cotton ceiling, it’s where trans will never ever have sex with biological women and lesbians because biological women and lesbians do not want to have sex with male born, male identified trans. Whereas in the Genetic DNA ceiling, Trans will never be intersex and never part of the intersex community because they are not born intersex to being with and have no commonality with intersex people. Both ceilings have a commonality where Trans will never cross and will always be a barrier for the trans community.
