It would seem that Professor PZ Myers gives out awards for Transphobia nowadays.
After encouraging posters on his site by giving them the green light to mock a tranwoman by claiming that Becky is really a man named ‘Donald’, with *spectacular* results – such as these:

So, odd thing. The weird comment got me doing some basic research into the sudden troll comment on my personal blog.
Remember this thread?
Well, apparently the annoying cis-male catholic apologist troll Becky Transsexual has decided to start trolling my blog on a regular basis after his banishment to the Pharyngula dungeon.
And he’s using becky.pzmyersisatwit.aol.com as his fake email address and posting somewhere from Amsterdam in the Netherlands.
I’m not entirely sure what I should do with the posts. I’ve just deleted them because they are just as stupid, non-sensical, and openly trolling as they were, but I’m wondering if I should start letting some of his posts through because they really are a sad piece of art in what they consider invective.
Last post from her which is currently sitting in my blog’s trash:
“Cerberus is actually a dog: in the Greek legend Cerberus is the three-headed guard dog of Hades.”
No shit, that’s the exact myth my nym is referencing.
So that means my tiny no-reader blog has already had visits from Dr. Mabus’s magical bus of crazy (one-stop tour) and the asshole nyming himself Becky Transsexual (apparently permanent resident if the last four days or so of scattered commenting is anything to go on).
But mystery solved.

I did not think that BT was a transgendered woman. The fool protested the fact that I doubted he story. What a sad life he must live to spend his time acting stupid on the blogs of people who fended off his idiocy.

I didn’t either. Just an assclam who seemed to think that claiming to be transgendered would allow him/her to spew hate.
…here he is today presenting a ‘Molly’ to Cerberus
etc. for calling me a “cismale”:
Talk about kicking a woman when she’s down – even if I am ‘only’ a transwoman!
Btw, I may in your esteemed learn-ed opinions be an ‘assclam’, but – FYI - neither am I really a geezer named ‘Donald’ nor a “cismale”.
Also, it is usually not helpful – Janine and Caine – when non-trans people like yourselves take advantage of their cisprivilege by assuming it’s your right to designate a transwoman as “male” and even referring to her as a “he/she” or in terms of “him/her”.
As for PZ Myers: well, I now know everything I need to know about him.
But before he goes….I wonder if he’d mind explaining to the gang of lads who asked me to ‘show them my tits’ on the bus the other day that I’m really a man named ‘Donald’ – even if I am a duckie who’s a quack? They might leave me alone then.
Or then again, under such circumstances, maybe not:(
