Trade Unions. (Part 2) 18b


From the book Trans Britain.

This is part of a (very long) series based on the book Trans Britain. There was a wealth of detail in the chapter on Trade Unions, by Carola Towle, so it needed more than one post. You can read the first part at the link below.

Trans Britain: Trade Unions (18a)

Phillippa Scrafton

Here is another activist from within the trade union movement, Phillippa Scrafton, who gained a seat on the national LGBT committee.

Scrafton came out in 2003 as “transgender”. He seems to have been age 35, at the time, and was in a heterosexual marriage. He explains that it was the prospect of children that prompted action and presents this as a stark choice between suicide or “becoming the person she knew she was”.

Based on his current social media he appears to be in a relationship with a female; though I am presuming by the use of “my Mrs” below.

Just two years into “womanhood” Scrafton made the front cover of the Unison magazine.

A cursory search of twitter turns up references to Scrafton speaking at Teesside University, N.E Ambulance Services, the NHS Business Services authority, Durham University, and Newcastle Medical School. He can also be found endorsing candidates for Darlington Labour. He also made a speech at the Unison women’s conference but this experience was not quite so positive, for either Scrafton or, it seems, the audience.

Apart from his job managing bin collections for the local council he also became a representative of Stonewall Scotland. In the latter capacity he spoke at an academic conference alongside PhDs with pronouns in their bios. 👇

Just out of interest I downloaded the conference programme for the above ☝️ just in case it’s worthy of a follow up.


I can only find one public recording, of Scrafton, (link below) and I found myself seriously underwhelmed. In no other circumstance would Scrafton be addressing University students, except as a member of this new priest class.

Scrafton at Teeside

Apart from this Scrafton was a trustee of a charity called Gay Advice Darlington. This appears to have ceased operating though remains on the charity commission register, despite never posting any accounts.

In addition to this he was involved in a community interest company which appears to have lasted only one year.

Turns out Phillippa also advises the police, as do so many of the trans activists I have covered in my series on TRAs behind the scenes.

I noticed, from Scranton’s linkedin, that he was endorsed by Jacqui Gavin who I also covered in my series about men working behind the scenes. Small world.

I wrote about Jacqui here: 👇

Jacqui Gavin: Civil Service

Jaden Biggs:

Females are under-represented, as usual but we are introduced to a black “trans-identified” female. There is not much information about Biggs but I did find a reference to a presentation from 2016. @NELFT is an NHS mental health trust.

The slide showing ☝️is enlarged below and makes it clear that transvestites/cross-dressers are included under the trans umbrella; which means men with transvestic fetishism can claim to be women. These same men are being granted access to female spaces; even those which might include a teenage girl, in a state of undress.

Jaden would appear to be a nurse who is also qualified to dispense drugs.

Entry on the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) register.

Lucy Persechino

Persechino is another person presented as a positive role model in Towle’s chapter. Lucy was a member of the Unison national commitee.

Persechino was interviewed by the Daily Gazette and a link to the article is below.


Some clips from that article.

Some more quotes from the article, background in IT ✅. Heterosexual, married man ✅ No early rejection of Male social roles✅ Now a “Lesbian” ✅. Thrilling experience in the Ladies Loos. ✅.

Another male claiming to be a “Lesbian” . How offensive. I think these men think women loving women are just a porn category.

In addition to his work for Unison Persechino also has ambitions to be an actor and has registered some further information, and pictures, with an on line agency.

Here are a few more images from his Star Now entry.

Cucumber, Banana, Tofu.

Persechino had a part in Cucumber, Banana and Tofu by Russell T Davies the writer of Queer as Folk and Its a Sin. These are three different shows, which can be watched independently, but are companion pieces. Cucumber is a series, Banana is a collection of short stories and Tofu is a documentary style where members of the cast talk about their sex lives interwoven with dramatic vignettes from, I presume, the companion shows. The title comes from a sexology institute that graded the firmness of erections from tofu, to banana to cucumber. You get the drift. Lucy appears in Tofu as a “lesbian” and a dominatrix.

[The series also stars Julie Hesmondalgh, who played Hayley Cropper, the “transsexual” in Coronation Street, who, by the way is even more irritating as herself with, in my view, a damaged relationship to sex and intimacy]. Here are Lucy’s highlights.

Lucy talks about torturing her male clients as part of their fetish. As you can see he is quite proud of being a “sadistic bitch”. Most of the more explicit references to Lucy’s dominatrix work appear in episode 8 at about the 8 minute mark. It’s worth watching this episode to see how porn has changed the sexual landscape, sadly not in a good way.

There were two males claiming to be Lesbians in Russell T Davies drama and a couple of trans identified females. It was noticeable that he didn’t promote the idea of a trans-identified female demanding entry into the dating pool of gay men. Funny that.

Lucy also worked for Southend Borough Council as the HR and diversity Officer. For 10 years.

Now that I have covered the trans activists who influenced the Union movement I will end with part 18 c which covers the rest of the chapter and one final man who has taken senior roles, meant for women, in UNISON.

Carola Towle: Unions: Part 3 (18 c)

From the book: Trans Britain

I have broken this section of the book into three different pieces to enable me to follow up the trans-activists name. These are the people effectively put forward as part of a public relations campaign. There could be others, who are not named but also working behind the scenes. There will likely be some repetition in this piece so that people can read this post as a stand alone piece, on the work of Carola Towle.

Sunk Cost “Phallusy”

Carola is a Lesbian. One of the old-fashioned types; the annoying kind without the penis. She is not the only Vichy Lesbian who has thrown her lot in with our trans overlords. If asked to speculate on their motives I would say naïveté, when I am feeling charitable, and self-interest when I am not. In any case the time has long since passed when any Lesbian can claim to be ignorant of the consequences for women, in general, and Lesbians in particular. Having invested, so publicly, in transgender ideology, many of these prominent Lesbians are probably becoming aware of the unforeseen implications for Lesbians. So why are they sticking with it?

Sunk cost fallacy is one likely explanation.

Not everyone recognises the need to cut their losses and they may, instead, double down or escalate their commitment. This may apply to Nicola Sturgeon who seems wholly unable to course correct. The SNP are hell-bent on pushing through disastrous legislation on the right to make a false declaration about your sex.

Sunk Cost Phallacy (sic) is one way of looking at this issue, another way would be to say that the Vichy, vagina-havers are penis pleasers for the benefits that accrue, to themselves, personally, while leaving those other bleeders to pay the price.

Quick recap on who Carola is: 👇

This chapter is all about the “placemen” who have infiltrated the union movement, not to fight for workers rights, but to advance their own. Trojan Horse like they appear to be a gift horse, feeding the narcissistic, virtue signalling, social justice class. In reality they are manipulating the focus of the unions so that they forget their core purpose and are co-opted by the “trans” agenda. Never underestimate the focus of a man with a sexual compulsion.

This has not happened over night. It dates back to nearly 50 years ago to 1974. Below 👇 Towle rewrites history to claim an historic LGB + T alliance which was merely “forgotten” for two decades.

Below we learn the force-teaming of the LGB was not greeted with unalloyed enthusiasm and indeed some members were actively resisting. Towle ascribes this to “transphobia” and resistance to change. She also deploys the idea they were simply ignorant; suggesting they just didn’t know any “trans” people. Maybe the problem was that some of the Lesbians and Gay men had met a “trans” person?

The homophobia of the trans movement was also display, as demonstrated by this delegate who did not want to be “tainted” by association with homosexuals. Towle doesn’t explore whether this was a significant strand of thinking in the “trans” community, indeed she shows a remarkable lack of curiosity for a Lesbian.

Undaunted by the failure, to pass a motion in support of “trans” inclusion, they set out to win hearts and minds. Sadly, or maybe not, I have not been able to track down a recording of this campaign song. 👇

Unsurprisingly the campaign did result in more people cross-dressing in public and *some* of these will be men who get sexually aroused by parading about in women’s clothing. It is likely that some of these men would also get sexual gratification from breaching women’s boundaries and toilets would provide a specific thrill. To go where most men were excluded is a common fantasy.

Here is one of the newly emboldened 👇 boasting about being “front and centre” in the union.

After years of preparation the trans faction would not be quiet and Unison, with a majority female membership, have chosen a elevate a tiny minority of men, aided and abetted by females in flight from their sex, over women. Notice two seats are reserved for “trans” representatives which must surely have provided them with a competitive advantage. It would be interesting to see a breakdown, by biological sex, of all those in influential positions. The most prominent ones, seem to be males. Quelle Surprise!

Emma Proctor

There appear to be a number of men who have identified into roles set aside for women, to address the under representation of the female sex. Let’s take a look at Emma Proctor.

Emma has been elected onto the National Executive Committee (NEC). It appears “Emma” campaigned for a reserved seat but it is not known if this is reserved for women or a “trans” representative. Either way it looks weighted in favour of the “trans” delegate; who either competed against a tiny demographic or has taken a seat meant for women.

However Proctor gained this seat on the NEC, they have definitely taken away a place on the National Women’s committee, even to the point of becoming the chair!

Proctor is making pronouncements about women’s lives, of which he has no “lived experience”. I can’t tell you how enraging it is to see a man using our lives for “cos-play”. Only an arrogant man would do this.

What is more galling is that “Emma” also gets roles as a “trans” person and of course, he is most keen to get the Gender Recognition Act “reformed” whilst also pretending to care about /be a woman.

Other influences.

Unison also published jointly with Scottish Trans Alliance a document written by extremist trans-activist James Morton; who I covered below. They also collaborated with GIRES (Trans lobby group)

C. Burns: Trans Britain (Part 16)

It is disturbing how they were able to spread this ideology throughout the Union movement and by extension, the Labour Party as Towle writes.

I covered Megan Key in two pieces and he doesn’t appear to be isolated in the workplace. He is employed by the probation and prison services and advises on prison policy. He even testified before Parliament, before the Women’s and Equalities Committee, that being a sex offender shouldn’t bar a male from the female prison estate.

Megan Key: Probation Services

The second piece covers Key’s lack of sexual boundaries.

Megan Key: Update.

Carola Towle: Statements

Below is Carola reflecting on the vibrant Lesbian scene she frequented in the 1980’s. I wonder if she knows that Lesbian’s in Tasmania recently lost a legal battle to run female only Lesbian events because of that would exclude males who identify as “lesbians”. She also laments that a trans rights (a belief that a man can be a lesbian, in effect) are a matter for “personal conscience” which is a rather authoritarian perspective.

Here she is attending the ILGA conference in 2000. The conference was funded by Astraea Foundation and Open Society Foundations: both are responsible for funding the spread of Gender Identity Ideology. Astraea are funded by Arcus Foundation and began as a Lesbian organisation, set up by actual females. They now accept male lesbians.

I also draw your attention to this quote:

Trans people are the most vulnerable!

This is a picture with names of the Trans caucus.

Peter/Victoria Benjamin

The same picture was used in a 2015 paper by Transgender Europe:

The person I have circled in red is Victoria Benjamin. This would appear to be the same Victoria Benjamin who has now detransitioned and re-identified as Peter, albeit this was post the surgery known as sexual reassignment surgery. Here is another picture of “Victoria” who is at a stand for the National Crime Agency.

Here is an article about his backstory as a heterosexual, cross-dresser, who obtained surgery after his third wife died.

Peter Benjamin

By his own account he was not challenged about his belief even though he was grieving and drinking heavily.

He are two pictures side by side one from Trans Britain and one from the article about Peter Benjamin. I think it is highly probable that I am right about “Victoria’s” identity.

Carola ends this chapter on an optimistic note with reference to the picture in which Peter /Victoria is included. Presumably Carola was unaware of Peter’s new chapter, at the time of writing.

This ends the Union specific chapters. I intend to create a page for Union related content in addition to listing these under the Trans Britain Series.

Trans Britain: Trade Unions (18a)


Carola Towle

For a Trade Union activist, such as myself, the behaviour of the Trade Unions, in respect of Gender Identity Ideology, has been particularly dispiriting to witness. I was a branch committee member for UCU (University and Colleges Union) and they have been so dreadful I am not even a member anymore. Carole Towle is a Lesbian: one of the vichy types. Totally on board with the “trans” dogma. I will split this into two parts to cover the background of some of the names trans-activists because I think it gives important context.

The point is delving deep into this book is to make sure we have a record of all the naive /nefarious people who aided and abetted this war on women. Did Carola ever stop to think about the impact on young lesbians? Did she know that many men who wish to be “women” are men with a fetish? Well it appears Carola did know and NALGO (one of the Unions that merged to form UNISON) were reaching out to transvestites and “transsexuals” in their first Lesbian and Gay newsletter in 1974! That is nearly fifty years ago!

The Lesbian and Gay network originally thought the issue of “trans” people was not something they should be concerned with but then they changed their mind. They were right the first time. Not only has transgender ideology become an overt attack on the idea of SEXual orientation it has become a blatant assault on women’s rights, as a sex class.

The first union to be captured seems to have been the now defunct, Manufacturing Science and Finance Union (MSF);which merged with other unions to become Unite. Towle reports that no official decision was taken but trans activists became involved in the Lesbian and Gay networks. This is sometimes called “transjacking” and it’s a tactic to force-team the LGB with the T; thereby piggy backing on the progress made by gay rights organisations. It is noticeable that this was a change of tactic; T strategy had been to distance themselves from homosexuals to avoid being “tainted” as they saw it. But by 2000 the MSF made an attempt to formally introduce the idea of “trans” inclusion in a UNISON motion. This was rejected at the first attempt and was clearly a divisive issue.

Now three other unions added their voices to the movement to include “trans”. Civil servants union (FDA), teachers and actors union led the way. The capture of the Trade Union movement was underway.

In order to prepare the ground for a successful motion, via the TUC, a member of the trans lobby group, Press For Change, was invited as an observer to TUC meetings. The person chosen was a trans-identified male; Claire McNab; Mcnab did a lot of the legal work to prepare for the Gender Recognition Act.

McNab was not the only trans-activist invited to advise the union. Right from the beginning they outsourced their thinking on this issue to some of the more extreme proponents of gender identity ideology. The TUC was blind to the impact on women of “trans-inclusion” policies and naive about the fetishistic men clamouring to come out of the shadows. Year’s of furtive cross-dressing. and the shame of transvestic fetishism and the desire to practice it in public were dual motives to be legitimised /rebranded as possessors of an innate gender identity,

The TUC brought in some key trans activists to advise them and in doing so allowed them to set the policy for the Trade Union movement. Stephen Whittle, Christine Burns and Aisla Spindler were also drafted in.

Aisla Spindler.

I have covered Whittle and Burns extensively, on this blog, but not Spindler. Spindler is a trans-identified male whose career history includes ILGA, Europe ;Terrence Higgins Trust and awards from Stonewall Scotland. He has now turned up in Ireland working for the Gay Project.

Spindler is currently anxious to set up a women’s rugby team and you can see him here on a YouTube made for children, arguing for “trans women” to be included on the women’s team and explaining that he used to play for a Hungarian woman’s team.

Aisla Spindler

A bit more digging and it would appear that Aisla is another heterosexual man who describes himself as a “Lesbian” and is married to a woman.

Eleanor Levy

Another activist who came on board was Levy while working for the probation services as a substance use advisor.

Levy now works for an NHS Trust in surrey and also volunteers at various NHS related bodies, as you can see from the clip below, they also provide services to Surrey County council and Surrey University. Naturally they are a diversity champion providing training across the country.

Levy describes themselves as bisexual with a trans-identity and is partnered by someone called Jenni.

Meanwhile, no doubt nudged by her advisors, Towle determined that the time had come to change the Lesbian and Gay network into an LGBT group. However, she recalls, there was resistance which she puts down to transphobia and biphobia. She also adds that there was a lot of ignorance and people just had not met a “trans” person before.

Anna May Booth

Booth was another union member who was is mentioned as a key trans activist. Booth came out as “trans” in 1998 at the MSF union conference. Currently their linkedin describes him as a freelance transgender researcher. He also stood as a Labour, council, candidate in 2014.

He can be found in an article about his partner, also a male and “trans” complaining about being bullied out of employment.

His partner was the victim of some prurient coverage in respect of his transition which contributed, in his view, to the collapse of his business.

Motion for Trans Inclusion.

Unison’s first attempt to tie the T to LGB failed because of opposition from a “trans” delegate who did not want to be associated with homosexuals.

At that vote was a person who would become a trans activist but, at this stage, he was still in the closet.

Jenny Harvey.

Harvey gave a very revealing interview which I will link below. In common with many of the trans-identifying males his story is one of secret cross dressing which he claims began at age ten, involved his mother’s clothes. This continued throughout his teenage years, university and beyond. He even talks about using his office at work to “cross-dress”. The shame of this furtive act can be cleansed by embracing an identity as a “woman” and thus he finally recognised the “girl” he was in his forties. (The use of “girl” here is revealing).

Jenny Harvey

This is Harvey’s biography 👇. Another trans-activist in the NHS, who also trains staff on diversity and inclusion.

Harvey tells a story about appearing on question time and subsequently receiving twitter abuse.

I have managed to locate to locate the episode and this would appear to be Jenny at 19 minutes in. 👇. Harvey responds to the expected loss of UKIP in the local by-elections and says they will lose because they have not been able to leverage hate in Stoke.

Question Time

This is a screenshot of Harvey from that episode. They did get quite horrific abuse which was covered by Pink News. This seems to have originated from UKIP supporters and it was incredibly cruel and personal.

Harvey has a twitter account. Seems genuinely committed to trade union values. Some transperbole about state sponsored abuse but no use of “terf” and not the worst timeline I have seen, by any means. (That said it is a low bar).


He is, however, quite invested in “trans” kids and shares Helen Webberley, Ben Hunte, Stonewall etc. Clearly Harvey is also not happy with women sticking up for our sex based rights. Those pesky feminists.

In part two I will cover some more trans activists working within the Union movement and the influence they have had on policy making.

C. Burns: Trans Britain: Part 17

Part Three: Growth

This chapter acts as a bridge from the historic movement and introduces the younger generation and the new set of demands. In this next part of the series this is who you can expect to meet.

Burns rehashes much of the earlier content in this chapter, reflects on past achievements and looks forward to more change from the new generation of activists. It is possible, and I am hopeful, that the hubris on display will provoke a serious challenge to this ideology in the coming decade. The chapter was written in 2017 and the landscape in the U.K is very different in Terf Island in 2022.

This sentence provoked an outburst of : “What more do they want?” from me. I expect we will find out soon enough.

This paragraph was reminiscing of a paragraph in Stephen Whittle’s paper called “Engendered Penalties”. 👇 This seems to presage the age of thought police which we are now living through. The problem people involved in this movement are demanding that we suppress natural instincts without which the species would not have survived. Much as these people wish to smash heteronormativity they cannot deny that every one of them was born of a mother. Heterosexuals are the majority and eventually (already?) people will get sick of the trans tyranny. My worry is that the backlash will extend beyond the T and generate backlash against the LGB too.

The Whittle paragraph I was thinking of came from a document I covered in this piece.

Engendered penalties: Whittle

Enforcement and Punishment

We are in the authoritarian phase of trans activism as demanded by Whittle.

Finally Whittle ends with a bit of transperbole about being able to sleep safely in their beds. I wonder how the women, incarcerated with rapists, sleep?

Whittle seems to have said the quiet part out loud while Burn’s claims these are the three priorities for the future.

Funny how women are berated for demanding we remain a sex class and not made invisible. Trans activists want to be included as “women” but simultaneously campaign for the words women use to describe our lives as “trans-exclusionary”. At the same time they are outraged at any failure to create a special category of “trans”. See this on the EHRC 👇. Trans women are women but the word women is treated as a trans exclusionary word! Make it make sense!

A similarly outraged paragraph appears when the NHS set up a Sexual Orientation Advisory group without pandering to the perpetually pissed off. Now a specific service for gay people cannot be allowed to leave out the genderists.

I will finish on this dishonest claim. Far from destroying sex stereotypes the trans movement has readied them and carved them into, and out of, their own flesh.

Trans activism is an attack on feminism at a fundamental level. This is just a new backlash. I am anticipating that part three will showcase some of the more left field ideas of the past two decades and how their excessive demands sowed the seeds of their own destruction, as an ideology. And, no, this is not a call for “trans” genocide simply a call for reality to reassert itself.

C. Burns: Trans Britain (Part 16)


James Morton: Scotland

In the week that Scotland plans to let 16 year olds obtain a “gender recognition certificate” ,with only a six month waiting period, and refuses to rule out sex offenders from changing their legal sex, it is timely that I have reached this chapter. Morton is a trans-identified female who seeks validation as a “male” chauvinist by behaving in the most abominably sexist way in respect of women’s rights. Not content with acting out self-hatred on her own body she has turned this lack of self acceptance into an attack on all women.

Morton has been at this for twenty years! Manager of Scottish Trans alliance she has been lobbying the U.K and Scottish governments to institute the most extremist version of gender identity ideology and , unfortunately, has gained the ear of successive governments and political parties.

Here is the transcript from Morton’s appearance at the Women and Equalities Inquiry which is referenced above. (Also covers the late transitioning, male, Sue Pascoe and the woman who has sent years trying to get an X as her “gender” marker).

Transgender Equality Inquiry James Morton et al

Morton follows the usual playbook in describing the process to get a GRC as humiliating and degrading. On the Scottish context, below, like U.K Stonewall Morton makes it clear that cross-dressing men are covered under the “trans” umbrella. As has become clear Scotland are much more mired in this ideology than even Stonewall.

See my series on the Gender Recognition Certificates to see how easy the process actually is and this is before we move to self-identification in Scotland.

Gender Recognition Act: Series

Morton offers the usual reference to the Yogyakarta principles which have no legal standing and are a wish list from extreme trans-ideologues. One of the signatories to these principles has since acknowledged that insufficient account was taken of the rights of women, during their drafting. You can read more about this in this article but I will include a clip about his change of heart, below. Shockingly he admits that nobody raised the issue of the human rights of women.

Yogyakarta Principles

Morton claimed that “Self-Identification”. as the opposite sex, had raised no issues in countries that have adopted it. There is a lot of emotional blackmail and an implied aversion to recording biological sex, on legal documents, at all. So far so predictable. I do just want to bring your attention to this statement and reference to Vera Baird.

I wonder what her thoughts are on this now? I had her down as one of the good ones but, I confess, I have not done a deep dive on her thoughts; unlike the “Vichy” feminist Helena Kennedy who has utterly betrayed women on this issue. Baird did resign from her post as Victims Commissioner in September 2022 because victims of crime were being let down so I will reserve judgement, for now.

Scottish Context.

It is important to note that, in Scotland, the inclusion of the T with the LGB was accomplished much earlier than was the case in the rest of the U.K. as Morton makes clear in Trans Britain. It is also worth noting that the earlier organisations were a coalition between transvestites and “transsexuals”.

I have covered the Beaumont Society earlier in the series but it’s worth repeating that there was some hostility to homosexuals from the heterosexual transvestites. It is my contention that there is a basic incompatibility between people who are same sex attracted and believers that ones “gender identity” grants inclusion in gay dating pools, even if you are the opposite sex. This is becoming clear in the 2020’s but the tension existed from the start in expressions of overt homophobia,

In order to understand the roots of the Scottish movement I had a look at the newsletter for the TV/TS society and their newsletter the Tartan Skirt as well as figures like Julia Gordon and Anne Forrester. Gordon “transitioned” in his forties and seems better known for being an accordion player; specialising in Scottish folk tunes. Forrester seems to have been the more prolific contributor to the magazine. You can get an idea of the content from this snapshot.

You can find copies of the magazines at the digital transgender archive. The above gives you a flavour of the content. I took one for the team and browsed the archives. There are advertisements for gatherings for men who like to cross-dress. Tips on make-up; the best kind of nylons; where to buy women’s shoes for the larger feet; how to behave in the woman’s loo etc. Despite the fact that the sexual component is obvious Forrester, of course, denies there is any sexual component to it. Well, he would say that wouldn’t he?

The content of the magazine is deeply sexist and the men who do this are creepily fascinating by the “feminine” and project their fantasies about what it means to be a woman. They are like stalkers of our entire sex. There is also barely veiled hostility to the wives who don’t show the proper acceptance of this fetish. Here are a few clips from one list of things about cross-dressers. Not a sexual fetish?

Forrester speculated about why men are into cross-dressing going through the usual theories about hormones in utero; dismissing the sexual component; the need for the breadwinner to obtain stress release (executive relief?) ; lady brain inside a man, before, finally, querying whether they are not reincarnated with the legacy of an earlier, female, existence!

There is also a whole article about how to behave when using women’s toilets! The article goes into great detail even about how to pee so you sound like a “lady” and how to comport yourself when interacting with “other women”. It’s seriously creepy stuff once you know you are being forced to participate in a man’s sexual fetish.

Before I go end this digression I will just leave this clip which is also from the Tartan Skirt. In it there is a fantasy about setting up an organisation for Other Women who are sometimes mistaken for men (O.W.W.S.M.M). The premise of this fantasy is to prey on female socialisation to be kind and get around our boundaries in this way, making the man an object of sympathy and tricking women embraced him as a “sisters”. Something like this strategy under pins the instruction to #BeKind to the men who seek access to our spaces. Now men are even getting paid for larping as women at work, even in rape crisis centres.

The alliance of fetishistic men with the LGB started as early as 1997 in Scotland. For context Stonewall, covering the rest of the U.K, didn’t add the T until 2015.

Gordon was instrumental in their decision to deploy the new name “transgender” to, I would argue, distract from the transvestite origins. Morton claims the intention was always to aim to get protections on the more subjective “Gender Identity” idea. 👇

The group LGBT Youth Scotland also became trans-inclusive at the same time.

Funding by the government and NHS Scotland was also there from the start.

They were generating training resources at the outset and trained the NHS, youth workers, teachers, local council staff and even the police,

It was clear early on that the Scots were diverging in the way they were prepared to legislate on this issue; even to the extent of trapping spouses who’s partner had deceived them at the outset.

Soon a group of activists and allies from the NHS, LGBT Health and the Equality Network got together to form an overarching organisation Scottish Transgender Alliance. They also decided to not only include people who identify as “transgender” but also “non-binary” people as well as, of course, cross-dressers.

The Scottish government were involved almost from their inception 👇. In effect the from the Scottish govt were paying lobby groups to lobby them so creating the impression this was a grass roots movement.

It was Scottish government funding that paid for James Morton’s first post, working for Scottish Transgender Alliance. After one year the funding was due to run out and the Scottish National Party (SNP) came to power. Morton need not have worried the SNP were keen to continue supporting the group. Their motivation was described as related to their desire for Scotland to be seen as “progressive” by the European Union. I think this plays a significant role in their continuing motivation to push this agenda.

They were commended by the Council Of Europe, who are distinct from the European Union but hugely influential with the E.U.

European funding followed and this allowed them to pursue networks across the European Union with other activist groups. In Ireland Transgender Equality Network (TENI) outstripped Scotland’s “achievements” by bringing in self-identified sex.

One of the strategies they deployed was using Hate Crime legislation. They found a useful idiot in the Green Party’s Patrick Harvie and Scottish Trans Alliance were fully involved in drafting the legislation. The purpose of the legislation was to embed gender identity ideology in Scottish Law. A subsidiary purpose was to allow crimes to be reported based on a self-perceived notion of “hate” thus the statistics could be “gamed”. This served to convince politicians they were dealing with a bus abused, marginal, minority by inflating “offences”.

“We need the stats”

Here is Morton gaming the system by encouraging reporting because, and I quote, “we need the stats”.

This next quote shows how ethically bankrupt Morton is in her quest to be validated as a man. Claiming that unleashing men on vulnerable female prisoners was an “ethically important” “strategy” to pave the way for the destruction of female only spaces. The depth of contempt I feel for the people who sat in a room to decide this knows no bounds.

By getting people to accept you could house male rapists in female prisons they could push their other goals; men in single sex wards, girls forced to share changing rooms with boys and forcing to call James Morton a man and obvious blokes “women”. Never underestimate how selfish gender zealots are.

Vichy Feminists.

A reminder that nothing could have been accomplished without the women who collaborated. Trans-activists deliberately force-teamed women in the domestic violence sector. Jo Clifford is a heterosexual late-transitioning man who married and had children. The feminists who colluded with him should hang their head in shame for their complicity/gullibility.

This is how Clifford describes himself:

Lesley Irving and Nel Whiting are deserving of no respect for their advocacy of men in rape crisis centres which have resulted on a man running Edinburgh Rape Crisis Centre. Mridul Wadwha lied about his sex to infiltrate a rape crisis service for women. What kind of despicable man would do this? He then compounded his error by claiming that they would accept “transphobes” at the service and counsel them to “reframe” their trauma about men. He is at best doing this for validation at worse this allows a man who fetishises hearing women talk about their rape. A man who fetishised acceptance into female only spaces would salivate at breaching the boundaries of rape survivors for his own desires. Further to this one specific man the Scottish government will now not fund any exclusive service for women. However traumatised at the hands of men they are to be forced to share with males! {As an aside Morton mentions some disagreement within the T as to whether or not men who hadn’t had genital surgery were to be accorded the status of “women”. We know which side won.}

Lesley Irving has been rewarded with senior posts in the violence against women sector

Nel Whiting works for Scottish Women’s aid. Katherine Burrows held directorships with both LGBT Scotland and a Rape crisis centre.

Not content with trashing the resources for women they were also keen to make sure NHS Scotland following the clinical pathways as set out by the lobby group WPATH. Morton talks excitedly about how they rushed the changes through by editing NHS Scotland’s own documents to include the new guidelines and persuading the NHS to accept them. The rising rates of detransitioners can be laid at their door.

As much as I despise the men behind this movement I cannot understand females, in flight from their sex, some of them because they are Lesbians and others in flight from sexual trauma, who work so assiduously to strip protections away from women and girls. I can only conclude that their internalised misogyny is not pacified by the destruction of their own bodies; they despise women who have not adopted the “superior sex”.

C. Burns: Trans Britain (Part 15)


Sue Sanders

Sue Sanders is given a chapter in this book having set up LGBT History Month and also worked with an organisation called Schools Out and one called Chrysalis. Sue is a lesbian with a background in teaching and the arts scene. Here is an interview she did with “Christine” Burns who also claims to be a Lesbian a mum and a grandma even though he is a man.

Half an hour with Burns

This interview is from 2009 and Sue explains how she was working with senior civil servants to embed diversity training in the teacher training. 14 minutes in she explains how they got funding from the Dept. of Education to launch LGBT History month. By 2009 they had 600 events a year. 16 minutes in she talks about how a “brilliant” teacher Ellie Barnes was working to get this embedded in schools. Elly Barnes is part of Educate and Celebrate who used Jordan Gray to go into schools, denied it and then deleted their twitter account. Jordan Gray recently showed off his Gynecomastia and his penis on channel 4’s Friday night live.

Sue Sanders then explains how she is keen to get LGBT embedded in the school curriculum to “usualise” LGBT people among school children. Sanders also delivers inset training for teachers so that they can answer the questions from children. She is very critical of the training materials are excessively “heteronormative”. She then points out how different festivals during the year as a hook to get this content into schools. They chose February so that Libraries and Museums would seize on this as useful content to fill the half-term.

Here is the Schools Out website.

Schools Out

They target early years and have gained accreditation from OFSTED.

I hate to think of the indoctrination that goes on at these summer camps for kids.

Sanders also gave a Ted Talk which you can see here.

Ted Talk

This was the title of her talk:

Her “thesis” is that “queer” history has been hidden and that LGBT people have no visibility. Maybe that was true when Sue started out but it’s disingenuous to claim this is the case now when the “trans” agenda is rammed down our throats by every major corporation, governments etc. She also rails at psychiatry for labelling lesbians and bisexuals as wrong and in need of “treatment”. Oh, the irony. These are the stats for those receiving “treatment” at gender abattoirs. This is the new way Lesbians and gay men are labelled as “wrong” and Sanders is going along with it!

Ten minutes in she has this to say:

Her aim was to “usualise” Lesbians, gays, trans people and also other racial minorities and embed them in the curriculum by also embracing the decolonisation of the teaching materials. She rails against colonisation whilst embracing the colonisation of females by men claiming to be us!

Trans Britain.

After this detour let’s look at what Sanders says in her chapter. She was quite embedded in the establishment for someone decrying a lack of visibility; working with the metropolitan police and the criminal justice system on hate crime.

She decries Lesbians who didn’t accept “trans women” as like straight feminists who didn’t accept lesbians.

She also spectacularly misses the real scandal of “transing away the gay” by making the spurious comparison with the demonisation of homosexuals by section 28.

Sanders makes it clear she was “trans-inclusive” at the outset and her claims to be marginalised are laughable considering her C.V.

The composition of an advisory group she was asked to set up made sure to include “trans” voices. Grayson Perry, Christine Burns and Claire McNab.

She also consulted trans lobby groups GIRES, Gendered Intelligence and the beleaguered charity Mermaids. Burns and Stephen Whittle became patrons of LGBT history month.

They even invited Susan Stryker who this year was invited to represent “women” at a celebration of Lesbians!

Can also be found trying to besmirch U.K women (mostly left wing) who are fighting for our sex based rights.

In and amongst the blatant misunderstandings there is some good stuff on the impact of Section 28 and historic oppression of homosexuals. Unfortunately Sanders has “queered” the history of Lesbian and gay struggles and is unable to address the elephant in the room: Men who fetishise her very existence.

C. Burns: Trans Britain (Part 14)


Annie Wallace

Wallace works as an “actress”; As an aside it is noticeable that only men cling to the actress moniker. Wallace worked behind the scenes advising Julie Hesmondhalgh who played a “transsexual” character in popular British soap opera, Coronation Street. The producers used an actual woman to play the character to soften up the audience for the admission of biological men into women’s spaces. A kind of “product placement” or false advertising. Hesmondalgh is described as the ideal choice as she was a social justice warrior.

Eventually Wallace moved in front of the camera to play a Head teacher, in the soap Hollyoaks; which of course he describes as a “headmistress”. The propagandists behind the soap decided to show an episode in which Wallace’s character is put in a female prison and is attacked and hospitalised by female prisoners. This is breathtaking dishonesty given that we are housing male rapists in the female estate and the risk is to females, by males. Men in women’s prisons are not at risk from females. It’s a complete inversion of the truth. Proof positive is that now females, however they identify, are housed in the male estate. There is provision for extremely violent females to be held in the male estate but it is rarely used.

Wallace’s chapter is quite repetitive of the content in previous chapters so I will leave out much of the sections on the increasing visibility of “trans” people. Earlier treatments of “trans” people he describes as treated as “perversions” by a “lascivious press”. (I think he means “salacious”).

He also objects to the depiction of “cross-dressers” which, may I remind you, are included under the “trans” umbrella. Some of these men are transvestic fetishists and adopt the garb of women for erotic purposes. Some in this group of men who are so addicted to this activity they are autogynephiles and wish to live as “women” full time. We used to be able to stigmatise men who like to masturbate while wearing female attire but now boundaries are under attack and this is called “transphobia”. This is why a man feels emboldened to dress in highly sexualised, female attire and parade around Bradford train station. A U.K city which is predominantly muslim, by the way, I have seen that man myself.

Wallace proceeds to reference Roberta Cowell, Jan Morris and April Ashley. All of whom I have covered in other pieces. Cowell was a man who abandoned his family and claimed to be intersex to get access to “trans” surgeries. In order to validate this claim he had to publicly denounce his wife as an adulteress and abandon his children. Jan Morris began his “transition” after the death of a child thereby compounding his wife’s grief. None of these men are good role models but they are being proclaimed as such in school teaching materials. He also mentions Julia Grant who I covered here 👇.

Julia /George Grant:Trans Britain 10

Wallace then mentions the film The “Crying Game” which involves trying to obtain sex by deception. This is a crime under U.K law and trans-activists have long had this law in their sights. For a man who is not homosexual this is a violation of his right to decide who is in his dating pool. Here the idea of “homophobia” is leveraged to shame Rea’s reaction and that is why they did not use a Lesbian, confronted with a surprise penis, this would have made the violation much clearer.

Wallace also references Adele Anderson who infiltrated a female only group, Fascinating Aida.

Wallace believes the character of Hayley Cropper was instrumental in softening up the public to accept a bill which, we now know, has resulted in men, even rapists, in female prisons and men cheating in women’s sports. How’s that social justice working out for you Julie Hesmondalgh? It’s also worth pointing out 👇 that trans-activists continually mis-characterise the role of the “spousal veto” which is in fact better called the “spousal exit clause”. A wife who discovers she is married to a transvestic fetishist is allowed time able to exit the marriage before a man can rewrite her history and claim she is married to a “lesbian” in official documents. She cannot prevent any steps in his “transition” she can just exit the marriage before she is redefined in law. The man is granted only an interim certificate unless she agrees to remain in the marriage or they divorce. Nobody should be assumed to consent to remain married to a man who is taking these steps.

Of course Wallace ☝️claims opposition only comes from right wing and Christian groups. Sigh.

Next he talks about the film “Trans America” which also used an actual woman (Felicity Hoffman) as the trans character. Now there are objections to not using “trans” actors but in the beginning it was helpful to use females to embed this ideology in the film industry. For the Huffman film they sought advice from noted trans-activist Andrea James.

James has a rather bleak backstory having orchestrated a campaign against Michael Bailey for the publication of his book “The Man Who Would Be Queen”. (MWWBQ).

I covered that book in this series: 👇

Man who would be Queen

This is a sample of James’work 👇

In this clip Wallace also shows how captured the BBC are:

There is nothing new in the remainder of the chapter so I just want to talk about this YouTube chat that Wallace had just four weeks ago. I anticipate that this will be removed as Wallace strays into defamatory territory in this interview. Starts about twenty minutes in.

Annie Wallace: Pride

Wallace makes a veiled reference to Helen Joyce who talked about limiting the amount of young people caught up in the social contagion of the “transgender phenomenon”; to stem the tide of detransitioners. Transactivists claim that what Joyce was doing was proposing a “genocide”. Wallace talks of women like us calling for the “elimination” of trans-identified people.

He then goes on to talk about the lies circulated about “trans” people and how he works to counter this disinformation with facts. Hilariously he then proceeds to talk about the Maya Fostater legal case but appears to be mixing it up with the Alison Bailey case. (About 23 minutes in).

You can read a brief piece about Alison Bailey’s case here: (By the way Bailey is appealing the loss against Stonewall) 👇

Alison Bailey: Legal Judgment

Worth mentioning that Wallace is a patron of the beleaguer charity Mermaids about which he says this:

Gay ConversionTherapy

He also ridicules the idea that we are “transing away the gay”

These are the stats at the Tavistock Gender Clinic; which has been ordered to close because it is not regarded as “safe” for children confused about their sex.

These are the words of a Tavistock whistleblowers 👇

Here he is pushing the idea that any parent who doesn’t support the idea their gay, autistic or otherwise vulnerable child is born wrong can be replaced by their a “glitter” family. This is one of the more sinister aspects of this ideology, in my view.

C. Burns: Trans Britain (Part 13)

“Jane” Fae.

Can’t quite believe I have never covered Fae before but here goes. Fae has his own chapter in the book “Trans Britain”. Fae is another heterosexual man who married, fathered children and in middle age began to identify as a woman. In his previous name “John Omizek” he was a defender of extreme porn and has published on this topic in the Guardian, Index on Censorship, Liberty etc. He has also self-published a book called “Taming The Beast” which also explores the attempts to regulate pornography.

You can read Fae on porn in this article. This article was originally published as John Omizek.


The article defends extreme pornography, dismisses feminist’s who expose the harm of this material, uses the language of the “coven” to describe those “witches” who oppose pornography and even appears to question the idea that men who possess violent pornographic might be unsuitable for some forms of employment. Here are a coups of clips.

Above ☝️ is his barely concealed witch finder stance. Below is his view on the possession of extreme pornography.

Apparently a chill wind has passed over the practitioners of sadomasochism. Fae paints the Labour party as the prudish maiden aunt of politics. Fae himself is a Liberal Democrat.

His chapter in Trans Britain introduces him as a “feminist” and journalist. Like a lot of these men he has a background in I.T and an interest in preserving the rights of purveyors of extreme pornography.

Fae’s chapter covers much of the ground covered by other contributions so I won’t detain you with much of the detail. He analyses coverage of the “trans” community in print media complaining that it tended to treat it as if it was a sexual kink. I am going to go out on a limb here and suggest Fae’s “kink” and interest in BDSM is precisely his route into the identity of “trans”. As if enjoying being hurt during sex is the essence of being “female”.

He is not alone. Here are some prominent “trans” identifying males pontificating on what it means to be a “women” to them. These are the extremely sexist fantasies of porn-addled men.

Fae allows himself a detour to attack Janice Raymond’s book “Transsexual Empire” which I cover in this series.

Janice Raymond: Transsexual Empire: Final

He also takes side swipes at Germaine Greer and Julie Bindel though and he can often be found in debates with Bindel on YouTube should you wish to see him inaction. In one he appeared alongside Bindel and Milo Yiannopolous where he ostentatiously produced his knitting; a common hobby in behavioural autogynephiles.

Much of his chapter is repetitive but I do want to single out this one quote which lies about the law to claim that “transgender” is a legally protected characteristic. It is not. The protected characteristic, in law, is “Gender Reassignment”; still a very badly drafted piece of legislation but it does not do what Fae says here. 👇

In Trans Britain Fae links the backlash to the election of Donald Trump which unleashed anti-trans sentiment and imported narratives about “bathroom” usage to the U.K. This resulted in a plethora of articles he labels “anti-trans” from a range of media outlets.
