This man, who nowdays goes by his troon name Emmy Zje, first came to my attention because other trannies of the Rat King family retweets his bizarre pseudoscientific articles on Medium, such as this one (archive), in which he tries to "explain" empathy with algebra; and especially this (archive), in which he lays the blame of transsexualism on entropy. It is futile to make sense of his writings, but such impenetrible langage is perfect for the trans apologist: after all, you cannot refute anything you don't even understand. James became a favorite among Rat King intellectuals: Zach Antolek, Jonathan "TransEthics" Holliday, and especially Rhys McKinnon. Their exchanges, however, are often more fetishistic than scientific. It seems Twitter dumbs down his brilliant scientific mind and he can go no further from tired platitudes like "I was born a woman because transwomen are women".
Note: much of James's history is from this post by @zedkissed60.
Please give me a low-down about what he thinks of gender.
On top of the usual "transwomen are women"; "I am a woman because I say so" bullshit, James has a host of bizarre idea as to how biology works. He is not the most systemic of thinkers, and I suspect he makes things up on the spot, but one thing that stands out among the rubble is that he thinks testosterone is an exclusive male hormone and estrogen an exclusively female one. If biological sex were real, he reasons, then a male cannot respond to estrogen at all and a female body should be totally insensitive to testosterone. Because reality doesn't work that way, he declares biological sex a myth.
Yet on the contrary, he thinks human cells are so mutable to cross-sex hormones that he can turn himself into a bona fide woman through "hormonal transition":
He thinks his brain can control his gonads:
The brain, in particular the hypothalamus, produces factors that influence gonads, but it is autonomous and isn't under conscious control.
He claims people will recognize him as female if only they sniff his piss:
After months of estrogen, James claims his ballsac smelled like a vag (archive)
He still believes the long-discredited idea that "transwomen have women brains" (archive)
Of course no one can be a vanilla trans today; they have to pick up other made-up identities. James chooses to be "demisexual" and "on the ace spectrum" (archive)
James also supports "trans kids" (e.g here; archived) and is very angry that detransitioner Keira Bell scored a victory over NHS Tavistock (archived). These are however standard-issue troon madness and don't differentiate James.
So does James have STEM credentials?
Unfortunately Yes. He got his PhD in Chemical and Biochemical Engineering from the U of Notre Dame in 2014. He then worked for Auburn University.
It's all about graphene and semiconductors. Nothing very biological.
From this RateMyProfessors page, he still went by James Radich as late as 2017.
He quit Auburn in September 2018, but not before reading out a really autistic letter to his Faculty of 22 people. (archived: 1, 2)
It is typical midline crisis: James had everything yet he felt time was running out. So he gave up everything to persue his "dream".
He then appeared in Penn State Greater Allegheny. In early 2020 he claimed to be accepted by someplace in the Netherlands for a research director position. Nothing further was heard about that.
Edit: a current student (April 2021) shares his opinion of James as a teacher.
How about his personal life?
James was born on September 6, 1979.
In this 2020 article James claimes to have transitioned "several years back". "Several years"? Try "one year". James was still deliberating as late as 2018, when he complained how he couldn't get enough affection from his disabled wife (you'll notice a pattern with trannies: everything has to be about HIM HIM HIM. Incidentally this is why they are all Twitter-addicted: real-life interaction simply cannot satisfy their insatiable need for attention)
He claimed to have known his wife at age 8, first shared a kiss at 13 (the age, as you'll read, James allegedly tried to castrate himself), and then underwent "emotional valmorphanization" at 25.
(Archived). How sad a woman have to be if she marries a man whom she knows hates his manhood?
He tells us that In January 2019, his wife decided to divorce his estrogen-infused ass (archive). However, our Kiwi sleuths has found out that it was James himself who filed for the divorce.
At first James claimed it was due to his wife's inability to live with a "woman"...
...but eventually he admitted he's been sucking cocks on the sly (archived):
But the paper wasn't filed until Feb 2020, more than a year later (archive). He also claims he got a bankruptcy, but we cannot find the record.
To James's credit, he is more philosophical about divorce than most midlife-crisis troons:
It was final in August 2020 (archive)
Retrospective revision of life stories is a given for any troon. James claims he has really tried to come out at 8, became so desperate that he attempted to castrate himself at age of 13 (the first mention of his self-castration story dated back from 26 Sept 2018, after the infamous tranny film Girl, which has such a scene, came out. James joined Twitter in May 2017).
BTW he also claims to have suffered sexual abuse as a boy (don't they all?) (Archive)
Testosterone went on to give him a drug habit:
The scaring from his makeshift knifework supposedly precluded a full-blown pseudovagina construction, but he claimed to have his balls decommissioned in Sept 2019. No more bikini bulge!
His next self-improvement projects include tracheal shave, neck tightening, and mild facial reconstructive surgery. Give him your money!
He even think that facial feminization will help him get closer to his kids. Creep. (archive)
Incidentally this is his second fundraiser this year. In January 2020 he made one for "emergency medical debt" (archived).
Social media: Twitter (new account Feb 2021).
