Sophie Cook: TRAs behind the scenes

Featured

Another trans-identified males taking places earmarked for women. Part of a series which you can find here:

“Trans”: Working behind the scenes

About Sophie Cook.

Sophie is a heterosexual, late transitioning male who has fathered three children. Like many older ”trans” identifying males he has a hyper masculine career history, arriving as a football photographer, via the military and ten years in Saudia Arabia. Cook has quite a prominent presence on social media having had their own media career; which appears to have taken off since he came out as ”trans” . You can listen to Sophie talk about their ”journey” on their tedtalk.

Cook’s Ted Talk

It’s important not to take these self-penned narratives at face value. Many males, who had a sexual motive for transition, reinvent their past because of the shame, for example, of autogynephilia. The classic background for an AGP male is that they are heterosexual, often from hyper masculine careers and they always claim, as Cook does, they ”knew” they were transgender at a pre-pubertal /pre sexual awareness age. They will also include unfalsifiable claims of suicide attempts (Cook claim one at the age of 12) and a life of suppressing their ”authentic” self. It is a rare “transsexual” who will admit their identity came out of a fetish for women’s underwear. For more on this see my series on Dr Ann Lawrence who himself owns his autogynephilia.

Men Trapped in Men’s Bodies

Crown Prosecution Services

Sophie Cook has been on my radar for a while but this announcement prompted me to include him in this series: Sophie has been employed by the Crown Prosecution Services as a ”Speak Out” champion!

This is how Sophie describes the role. Note the key words he highlights are independent and impartial. It’s 2022 and the Crown Prosecution Services are still pursuing an agender to embed the mis-named Equality & Diversity Agenda in their organisation; by, er employing a man who attacks women’s rights every chance he gets.

The Crown Prosecution Services have form in this area; having produced a document to teach school children about hate crime, a document they subsequently had to withdraw.

As it happens I had written to the CPS about this document. I had tried to find it on their website but it was not open to the public. The only way to obtain a copy was to request a copy via a school email. A search of the internet turned up a copy on Mermaids website. The CPS did not even accurately state the legally protected characteristics from the 2010, Equality Act. The document was signed off by Ruth Hunt , of Stonewall infamy.

Stonewall

Cook has been working with Stonewall since 2016 when they got involved in the Rainbow Laces campaign. The Rainbow Laces campaign was designed to combat homophobia in sport. This is a laudable aim but extending that to including males in female sports is a regressive move, for the female people.

Sophie is not quite so keen in getting sexism out of sport and seems to think its perfectly reasonable for males to compete against females and to shower with teenage girls.

Colonising Women’s Roles

What people don’t seem to have grasped yet is that this is not a Civil Rights movement. It is a Men’s sexual rights movement. In order to ”live as a woman” it is actual women who are expected to make room, literally, for these men. This might mean losing a spot on a female sports team or a place on the Jo cox, Women into Leadership scheme. This scheme was set up to improve female representation in leadership roles in UK Labour but there have been at least two men who have taken up places; one of them was Cook.

Cook progressed to prospective MP and stood,unsuccessfully, as a candidate for Labour. in 2019 Cook was selected to stand again but subsequently, deselected because of an undeclared bankruptcy, in his past. At this stage a furious Cook stood as an Independent candidate, unconcerned about splitting the Labour vote, but ceased to campaign claiming ”transphobic” abuse. Again I don’t find this account credible since they said, in an interview with Pink News, ”instead of abuse I was greeted with love and support”

Below is Sophie visiting a women’s refuge. Again this is the ultimate goal for AGP males. In order to be validated they have to be accepted in women’s most intimate of spaces ideally ones which exclude other men. What better place than a women’s refuge/rape crisis centre? The same refuge, by the way, is being taken to court for refusing to offer a female only group to a rape survivor. She was distressed about having to recount her experiences in front of a trans-identified male. What kind of abject fool would celebrate a man buying you a mug with that slogan. 👇. ”My feminism includes everybody” Thats not feminism, love, he’s making a mug out of you.

Womxn

Here the media play into Cook’s lady fantasies by consulting him on women’s language. A prominent organisation had renamed women to womxn but retreated after a backlash.

This was Sophie’s response. Delivered withiut a trace of self-awareness.

Dripping with male entitlement he repurposes the feminazi insult with a modern twist. He thinks he is a FEMINIST! 😂

Sophie Speaks Out: Impartiality?

So, let us look at the issues in which Cook demonstrates the necessary impartiality for his new role with the CPS.

Maybe it is this attack on the NHS for advertising a nurses job on Mumsnet,

Or it could be this attack on a Lesbian, academic. Kathleen was hounded out of her post and to call her anti-trans is ridiculous; her stance is much less militant than mine now that I have seen the masculine arrogance of these absolutely genuine types.

He excels himself with this attack on women who are defending our rights to single sex spaces. This is what he thinks of the sex he claims to identify with.

Not content with disparaging women he proceeds to attack the only organisation defending Lesbians, Gays and Bisexuals. They must be slandered because they stand in the way of male ”lesbians”. There is no truth to the claim LGB Alliance is funded by the far right. (I think the detractors are well aware this is a bare faced lie and that will be clear when accounts are published. At the moment the ”trans” Lobby group is trying to challenge LGB Alliance’s charitable status).

Transperbole on Steroids!

The testerical tone of these accusations would be laughable if they were not reported by organisations like the Council of Europe. 👇

You ain’t no feminist bruv!

Knowing what a woman is does not make women akin to Nazis. I am going to go out on a limb and say anyone colluding with the sterilising of kids is Mengele adjacent! The Crown Prosecution Services have shown a woeful lack of judgement, in this area, generally, and this appointment specifically.

If you appreciate my work feel free to send a gift my way. Contrary to the propagandists we are not funded by right wing billionaires but the trans movement is!

Steph Calvert. (Part Two)

Featured

Steph Calvert is another person who is at a member of a:gender which is a Trans Activist group at the heart of the civil service.

There is quite a lot of information about Steph from public talks and their own novels. This is my second piece on Steph Calvert. You can read Part One below: 👇

Steph Calvert. (Part One)

For this piece I watched a YouTube video where Steph had been invited to give a talk on leadership by the CEO of a Leeds based charity Touchstone. The CEO, Alison Lowe, has now moved on to become the Deputy Mayor of West Yorkshire. 😳

I was already aware of Alison Lowe from her twitter activity. This is a, rather rude, response she sent to Sex Matters, the organisation founded by Maya Forstater. Of course she has pronouns in her email footer.

She also sent a similarly terse, defamatory, response to the gay rights charity LGB Alliance.

You can see the letter from LGB Alliance in this twitter exchange.

LGB Alliance Letter to Alison Lowe

Stephe gives a Master Class on Leadership.

This was indeed the title of the talk but what was delivered barely touched on leadership. Calvert claimed to have written a talk but said he preferred to just speak off the cuff. What followed was a ramble about his ”transgender” journey and a potted biography which stretched credulity to its limits.

Steph Calvert : A Master Class

First of all his tale about realising he was ”trans” at age two when his baby brother was born. He could see they were, anatomically the same but he knew he was a girl. Anyone who knows about child development can see this for the retcon narrative it is. It serves to deflect any suggestion there is any sexual motive at play. Not content with one alibi we are also told he is intersex but no detail of his precise chromosomal abnormality is disclosed.

We then hear about his work with the civil service group a:gender where he reveals he is on the steering group. A:gender leads on ”trans” issues across the civil service and covers, he explains, binary trans people, non-binary, no gender, third gender or gender fluid. Steph is also the national lead, on Trans issues, for an organisation called Spectrum; which is, I assume Spectrum UK which is part of Pearsons who write educational materials for schools.

We learn that Steph was based in Singapore and came across the story of April Ashley, age 10. April Ashley was a trans-identified male who married into the peerage but the husband annulled the marriage leading to quite a famous court case which said a male could not be legally married to another male.

Following a return to England he recounts stories of being bullied every single day. It feels unkind to question this but this theme is repeated throughout his talk and it is of course unverifiable. He also recounts the second of three attempted suicides, by the time he reached puberty. The third suicide attempt came when he went to college and thought “I can be myself. That was a mistake, I was beaten up every day”.

Next Steph explains that he made a flight into hyper-masculinity which explains why he entered a very macho occupation as a border guard. This is presented as a common pathway for late-transitioning males; which it is for men who emerge with autogynephilia. So keen was Steph to fit in they even got married. This gives Calvert an excuse to talk about his relationships with women and sexual dysfunction which always emerged after the initial excitement of a new partner.

In the time for questions Steph makes a further claim after pointing out the evils of misgendering. I remember when males did not claim the word ”female“ much less that they have always been female.

The question and answer session is mainly off camera. At 32 minutes in Steph tells a blatant lie about “transgender” medicine for children. To be fair he is not the only one but this scientific ignorance should not be allowed to stand. What we know is that 98% continue onto cross-sex hormones, and there are many unknowns about the impact on brain maturation. We do know these children will be sterile and have no capacity to orgasm; this was admitted by Dr Marci Bowers who is a trans-identified male who was involved in Jazz Jenning’s surgery.

Bearing in mind the fantasy about sharing a tent with a 14 year old girl, in part one, I would suggest he should not be working with a charity for ”trans” children.

In this section (34 minutes in) Calvert takes aim at Dr Julia Long. He dismisses concerns that proto-gay kids are being medicalised in appropriately and is very angry at ”terfs”, especially Dr Long who is, quite rightly, uncompromising. Calvert even has the cheek to deny ”Speaking as a Lesbian” 🤔

At the end of the questions Alison Lowe asks Calvert to share a “hilarious” anecdote which gives Steph an opportunity to talk about using the women’s toilets. In this unbelievable scenario Steph seeks to make common cause with women who he assumes have all experienced getting their knickers tucked in their skirt. Steph goes one better and claims he literally forgot to pull his knickers up at all. Nope. Don’t believe you, if that happened it was no accident and it would be difficult not to notice. Cue raucous laughter and rapturous applause.

Alison Lowe is now the Deputy Mayor for West Yorkshire. Thanks to her naïveté Stephanie got to perform his fetish for a captive audience. We are governed by idiots. 🤦‍♂️

Steph Calvert. (Part One)

Featured

Steph Calvert is another person who is at a member of a:gender which is a Trans Activist group at the heart of the civil service.

There is quite a lot of information about Steph from public talks and their own novels. This interview, from 2019, is with the FDA which is a Union for managers in the public services. Steph works in border control.

Interview

At the time Calvert was vice-chair of a:gender. They make the usual claim that knew they were transgender or really female from a ludicrously early age (2 years old for Calvert). We know enough about child development to see this as retrospective continuity (retcon, for short); when the past is re-shaped to accommodate the present. This narrative is often deployed by adult males who claim to be “transwomen” ; perhaps to deflect from any suggestion of a sexual motive, for example autogynephilia. Steph also claims to be intersex though they fail to be specific about the nature of the chromosomal abnormality with which they are afflicted. This may also be retcon again because of the desire to believe, of have others believe, that they have a biological basis for wishing to be perceived as female or, indeed, there was a mix up and they are really female.
This is a clip from a talk “Steph” gave which I will cover in part two.

I have learned to be skeptical about these claims. There is no evidence that people with disorders of sexual development are over-represented at Gender Clinics which is why karyotype tests were abandoned. There is a condition which invariably afflicts late transitioning, heterosexual, males called autogynephilia (AGP); a sexual paraphilia in which a man is sexually aroused at the thought of himself as a woman. Calvert gives every indication that he falls under the AGP umbrella. If I was in any doubt about this then reading one of their novels, with a protagonist who is also border force patrol officer and “transgender girl”, lends credence to my speculation. This is the novel. Available electronically via amazon. I suspended my literary critic and, disbelief, and took one for the team.

This is a work of fiction but a few clips will give you an idea of what we are dealing with. The main protagonist is a Steve Jones who is preparing to come out as Stefanie on a camping trip. Like Steph he is a Rugby player, a cyclist and a Border Patrol Officer. On arrival at the campsite he is both recognised as a male but also recognised as a ”girl” (not a woman, a ”girl”) by the women, a 14 year old girl and a male love interest. The women take Steff to their bosem and the 14 year old girl, shares cuddles, giggles, and a tent!

Kelly insists on taking Steph to the female showers and toilets and, of course, they go in adjacent cubicles and giggle and gossip like we ”girls” do. Everyone sees the girl inside Steve!

The men share their dirty jokes with Steph when the womenfolk are not around. With the women there are shopping trips, make up tips and bra-shopping. Steff recounts the thrill at being called “miss” which turns mundane shopping trips into fantasy. Steph is even pleased when they are called a word that used to fall foul of the censors in post Hays code Hollywood. I am not sure what that second sentence means unless Steph gets a physiological response that would need to be concealed in a work setting.

{Side note: In George Cukor’s film, The Women, he used ”there’s a word for women like you but we don’t use it outside of a kennel“ . In the modern version Meg Ryan’s character says ”Oh you mean the perfume bitch”. Both films have an entirely female caste. Well worth digging them out}

The fantasy boyfriend is clearly a validation aid for giggling, girlish Steph. Geoff, the love interest, states that he is not gay and not interested in a she-male experience.

At work the lads put it their acceptance of Steve, as Stephanie, to a vote. (As if they are the final arbiters of what makes a woman!). They do so in blatantly sexist terms, which thrill Stephanie, naturally enough.

There is more of this from another co-worker 👇

There are so many red flags in the book. These are a sample but I will add more to a twitter thread.

Finally he gets some pushback in work from someone who sorts out separate toilets and changing facilities and seems a bit terfy:

Throughout the book and indeed in their public talks Stephanie recounts a huge amount of bullying and violent assaults. My sneaking suspicion is this is mainly fantasy. If you have ever seen the Rachael Divide, about Rachael Dolezal, who claimed to be black, she too had alleged racist abuse at levels which raised skepticism in the black community. He uses these claims to leverage victimhood, prey on female sympathy and force-team Women. It also frames women as perpetual victims, as if shared suffering qualifies him to claim a lived female experience. The next sentence shows his aggressive male entitlement and of course she caves. 👇

In fact we very soon find Steph crying in the female toilets with Sue, who welcomes him to ”gossip central”. Sigh. Boundary breaching begins at once.

As I have said before, we are not just inviting any men into women’s spaces these are men with a paraphilia. Their interest is in being sexually objectified as a woman, because they fervently believe that’s what being a woman is!

In my next piece I will focus on a talk Stephanie did for the Leeds based charity Touchstone. You will see his biography has many overlaps with the “fictional” Stephanie. He was invited by their CEO, who is now the Deputy Mayor for West Yorkshire. Thanks to her naïveté Stephanie got to perform his fetish for a captive audience. We are governed by idiots. 🤦‍♂️

Jenny Anne Bishop.

I was asked to look at Bishop’s career / activism as part of my series on trans-activists who have key appointments in the civil service. You can see that series on this page.

“Trans”: Working behind the scenes

Jenny has had a long and illustrious career culminating in the award of the Order of the British Empire (O.B.E). They have received commendations from Greater Manchester Police and claim to be very influential in the Welsh constabulary, where they now reside with their partner; a trans-identified male. They also advise Her Majesty’s Prison and Probation Services (HMPPS) which includes participating in Transgender Case Boards, who make decisions that can result in a male being transferred to the female estate.

Background

Jenny was previously in a long, heterosexual, marriage and fathered two children. In interviews, Bishop claimed they always knew they were “transgender” they were encouraged to repress their cross-dressing and enter a heterosexual marriage. In a now familiar story, they relate they describe how their wife agreed to accommodate their peccadillo providing it was restricted to attendance at “support” groups and a few weekend trips a year. Eventually they divorced and, in this article, Jenny reports that they are now estranged from their ex wife and two children.

Jenny aged 71

In this article we learn that ”Jenny” began by dressing in their mother’s clothes at an early age. This is one of the pictures, which I assume were supplied by the subject of the interview.

Bishop expresses their euphoria about their new life and is dismissive about the impact on their relationship with their children.

In Later articles Bishop adopts a more conciliatory tone and claims they hoped their children would have established contact after the award of an O.B.E. As always we don’t have the story of the ex-wife or the estranged children to balance out these accounts.

Trans-activist career.

Bishop has worked extensively with trans-lobby groups for decades. This account, via the LGBT Foundation gives a potted history spanning as far back as the 1970’s.

Potted history

As you can see they first joined the Beaumont society which originated as a group for male cross-dressers; who have now been brought under the ”trans” umbrella. Stephen Whittle was also based in Manchester and both are involved on the Christian scene. Below is a roll call for the many organisations Bishop is involved with; including Greater Manchester Police and the mysterious Westminster Parliamentary Forum on Gender Identity.

Westminster Parliamentary Forum on GI.

I have come across reference to this group before but it seems difficult to get much information. The last chair would appear to be Baroness Gould, who was, perhaps, given this role when the Women’s National Commission was abolished during her tenure. I have found an FOI request to the House of Lords; requesting minutes, as far back as 2012. As you can see there was no accountability.

I did manage to locate a reference to WPF on GI on a website which has this to say and has links (now broken) to documents advising the NHS on Gender Identity issues. It seems likely that a Lobby group provided the secretarial support so I delved.

I managed to find an article by Trans activist Jane Fae. The article was from 2016 and it confirms that another trans-identified male was the secretary. Helen Belcher from the Trans Lobby Group, Trans Media Watch. Out source the records. A neat way to avoid any democratic accountability.

This 👆is an excerpt from Fae’s article published in Gay Star News in June 2016. Source below.

Helen Belcher

Helen Belcher was a Liberal Democrat parliamentary candidate.

In conclusion.

Bishop has been involved in various groups since the 1970’s. Many of the activism was in Manchester but, latterly, activities centre on Wales. There is a lot of public information and celebratory media coverage, about Bishop which you can find. They have fingers in many pies. North Wales Police and the Crown Prosecution Services where Bishop srutinises their work on Hate Crime. If Bishop is in charge of training is it any wonder that the CPS have been caught lying about the Law and substituting ”gender” for the legally protected characteristic of SEX?

Bishop is now married to another trans-identified male who has no intention of accessing the euphoria of the post-operative community. Jenny is open about their sex life but dishonestly claims they sex is sometimes Lesbian and sometimes heterosexual. Two males doth not a Lesbian couple make but the arrogance of re-defining others against their will smacks of male entitlement. Marginalised demographic? I don’t think so.

Pritchard does have a social media presence but, certainly on twitter and facebook, they are not vocal on ”trans” rights. Perhaps when your CV has seen you deeply embedded, at a senior level, in the Civil Service you have all the voice and influence you need?

In this post I will take a quick look at the Annual report for the Government Equality Office (GEO) for 2010-11. Attached below 👇

annual-report GEO 2011

Ministerial responsibility came under Lynne Featherstone who you may remember for telling women fighting for our, sex based, rights that we were not welcome in the Liberal Democrats. Clip below 👇

Follow the money!

Also worth remembering that the Liberal Democrats have taken 1.4 million from Ferring Pharmaceuticals who manufacture Puberty Blockers which the NHS started giving to children as young as 10, via the Tavistock Gender Clinic. I covered the Liberal Democrat funding below.

Liberal Democrats & Big Pharma

This statement by Lynn Featherstone will give you an idea of how fanatical she is on this issue. It is for women like her that I coined the term ”Vichy Women”. How dare she call us ”faux feminists“ while rolling back women’s rights a hundred years!


So, what was the first thing Featherstone did as Minister for Women and Equalities? Got rid of the Women’s commission which dated back to 1969. Now women’s rights comes under the GEO and specifically under a Trans-Identified male whose interests are diametrically opposed to those of women. 👇

Abolish the Women’s National Commission!


I should point out that the Women’s National Commission showed early signs of capture back in the 2009 /10 Annual Report. The Home Office commissioned them to host a series of women only focus groups. They chose to include ”Transgender women”. This didn’t save them. They also ran a survey after partner organisations raised concerns about the threat to women only spaces, this might have been their undoing. They were due to report on the outcomes in what they described as an unprecedented level of response. Clip from the annual report below. 👇

Single Sex Services
Following concerns expressed by Partners that women-only services are under threat and that the gender equality duty was being misinterpreted by funders, the WNC ran a light touch online survey asking women about their experience of women-only services, whether they would choose a women-only service in certain circumstances and whether they valued having the option to go to a women-only service. We received 297 responses to this survey which is an unprecedented response to a WNC survey. We are looking in detail at the responses and will be reporting on this soon.

Senior Management Team.

Pritchard was in charge of the hen house and earning over 70k for the privilege!

The decision was also taken to end EHRC’s grant making powers and determined that the EHRC would no longer be required to foster good relations between different protected characteristics. This has significant implications when one protected group, Gender Reassignment, is demanding rights which the protected characteristic of Sex had been granted to defend single sex spaces.

This despite the overwhelming number of respondents opposing the repeal of this responsibility.

The decision was also taken to remove the responsibility to monitor the “gender” pay gap. This would be diluted to a voluntary scheme, once the GEO had set one up.

The GEO was now the lead on all Equalities issues which means that a man, who has a vested interest in the destruction of women’s rights is in charge of protecting them!

The GEO commenced multiple initiatives to advance ”transgender” rights under the misleading LGBT banner. (Misleading because Lesbians and Gay men are being harmed by the forced teaming with the T). The protected characteristic of sexual orientation requires recognition that sex exists, something Trans Activists which to be subordinate the ”Gender Identity”.

This is just a sample of the initiatives set out in the Annual Report to advance ”trans” rights.

As far as I could ascertain their are no smoking guns or controversial statements in the public domain but is it really coincidental that moves to embed “Trans” rights at the expense of women’s rights, tend to follow him around? Let us have a look I at the actions of the various of the departments during Pritchard’s time in post. First up the Government Equality Office between 2009-2012 when Pritchard was Head of Strategy.

During Pritchard’s tenure the GEO began a review of the Equality and Human Rights Commission. This document covers the outcome if this consultation.

review-information-advice

This is a list of the organisations consulted:

Follow the money!

I have had a look at all of these organisations websites and they are all paid up purveyors of Gender Identity Ideology. Of course I can’t check their stance back to 2011 but even End Violence against Women no longer defines women based on biological sex. The Equality and Diversity Forum is now called Equally Ours and its funders are some of the foundations committed to spreading Gender Identity Ideology. Esme Fairburn also funds End Violence Against Women which explains a lot. Paul Hamlyn Foundation shares a trustee with the Scott Trust that oversees the Guardian media, group. Barings Foundation funded Stonewall to provide secretarial services for the All Parliamentary Group on LGBT issues.

The document itself is very dry and goes into quite a lot of detail on the efficiency (or not) of its helpline services and its grant making powers. A few points stand out. The EHRC is criticised for the power imbalance between the organisation and those grassroots organisations it funds. The grant recipients are also, it is argued, hindered in meeting the criteria for obtaining and monitoring grant expenditure. Moreover the report highlights that some groups who are part of the more established protected characteristics my be getting more priority. This is despite the review having this to say about the EHRC grant allocation.

Gendered Intelligence is singled out for particular comment. Was the review setting the scene for more grant awards to specific organisations and a relaxation of the ”stringent” criteria?

The report also details a specific intervention made by the Scottish EHRC in relation to the ”Transgender” community. Was this to shame the English EHRC for not attemp to obtaining similar concessions from the English NHS? 👇 A not so subtle hint about what would be considered good practice?

Outcome of the Review

The resulting proposals were set out in a document signed off by the then Home Secretary, Theresa May and Lynne Featherstone who was Minister for Women and Equalities; a title she shared with Theresa May. Their proposals were outlined in the document below:

Building a fairer britain EHRC-consultation-

The decision was taken to end EHRC’s grant making powers. It was also determined that the EHRC would no longer be required to foster good relations between different protected characteristics. This has significant implications when one protected group, Gender Reassignment, is demanding rights which the protected characteristic of Sex had been granted; namely the right to single sex spaces which exclude males irrespective of their ”Gender Identity”.

This despite the overwhelming number of respondents opposing the repeal of this responsibility.

The appendix lists organisations that responded and I counted only few organisations that were women’s organisations. Scottish Women’s Aid is not exclusively for women but regards ”Trans women as Women”. The Women’s Resource Centre and National Board for Catholic Women (NBCW). I can find no reference to this issue on the NBCW website.

Whatever their position in the past the Women’s Resource Centre does have a statement on their website which defends sex as a biological reality and wishes to preserve the right to single sex services. It is, however, clear that they represent members who adopt a variety of positions.

Statement on Women’s Services

The list of trans organisations is somewhat longer. Gender Identity Research and Education Society, LGBT Youth Scotland, Press for Change and Stonewall all made submissions.

I will return to Pritchard as he continues his career to examine any other pertinent activities which occurred on his watch.

Jacqui Gavin: Civil Service

Featured

I came across Jacqui quite by accident. I was in the middle of a blog on some Stonewall teaching materials for primary schools and during the course of that research I looked up Pearsons; who co-produced the teaching materials. This led me to Pearsons Spectrum UK who have a YouTube channel. The only person featured on that channel is Jacqui, a rather charming Scottish male who claims a ”transgender” identity. You can find it here:

Jacqui Gavin

Jacqui is asked to outline their history and tells a lovely anecdote about being a ten year old boy, coming across a black and white picture of a naked man but the nudity wasn’t what caught the young boys attention, it was the sadness in his eyes. Turning over the page there is another image of the same person, clawing at his skin and peeling off his male exterior to reveal a beautifully made up and glamorous woman.

This was in the 1970’s so Jacqui describes a few years of going to visit psychiatrists who ”prodded and poked me” all the while saying ”little boys can’t become little girls”. Jacqui’s parents, we are told, encouraged the young Jacqui to take up masculine pursuits and Jacqui was so successful they became a schoolboy signing for Aberdeen, under Alex Ferguson, who is better remembered for his management of Manchester United. Sadly, we are told ”Fergie” found out that I was a little bit different which “prompted me to lose my schoolboy contract”.

Jacqui tells a different story in this interview. In this version they made the decision themselves and felt they had let their parents down.

Interview: Cambridge Journal

At this point, we learn, that Jacqui moved to London, age 15, but a year later returned home because their mum was terminally ill. In a surprise move the next chapter involved joining the military only, to be discovered to be ”different” and forced to leave or face a criminal sentence. Again this story differs from other accounts: This clip is from another article. In this account they were found with women’s clothing.

Interview in Scottish Telegraph

In this version Jacqui made the decision to leave after being threatened with demotion:

Jacqui tells yet another version in a different interview

According to Jacqui these are their qualifications.

Marriage and Modelling.

Jacqui then describes being outed as ”transgender” by the media. This is true and was occasioned by a 1995 marriage ceremony, to a man, in the Caribbean. An article in 2015 describes the relationship as 23 years long. The coverage was indeed cruel and sensationalist.

Once again, we are told, the modelling career was ended when it was discovered they were not female.

Civil Service

Jacqui then describes joining the civil service and within two weeks being contacted by Terry Moran and asked to help the Civil Service with the ”trans” issue. This is Terry’s CV. {Jacqui also talks about having their own private cheerleader in Jeremy Heywood; he was the Permanent Secretary to the Cabinet under both David Cameron and Theresa May}.

You can see Jacqui’s career trajectory below. All from Jacqui’s linkedin. Financial Conduct Authority, posts in the Civil Service at the Department for Work and Pensions, Department for International Trade and the Cabinet Office. Not bad for someone who’s highest qualification appears to be a City and Guilds. During their spare time Jacqui also found time to be on the advisory board for Diva Magazine and worked with Diversity Role Models. Jacqui was also awarded the Order of the British Empire and regularly appears in lists of influential LGBT influencers.

Jacqui became first Chair of the Transgender Network and then joined the steering group a:Gender

As Jacqui explains this allowed the combining of a role as a Trans activist and a Civil Servant and their influence spread across the Civil Service.

In the YouTube for Pearson Spectrum Jacqui talks a good game about listening to all voices; ”even those we don’t want to hear”, its somewhat spoilt by the addition of “even those spouting hate” but it’s an attempt, at least. There’s some guff about walking a mile in other peoples shoes, and a patronising assumption that lack of acceptance is because people don’t understand. Women could say the same to Jacqui, who also doesn’t understand what it is to be us. 👇

Women’s right to feel safe.

One of the interviewers then asked a question which looked as if there would be some meaningful engagement with the concerns of women but the question was how we include trans-identified males ”transwomen” in the conversation so they are not marginalised. However Jacqui threw them a somewhat ”terfy” curve ball. Seems Jacqui is a bit concerned about the ever expanding ”trans” umbrella and female spaces.

I would love to see a source for this quote. I cannot find any reference to this anywhere online. After some checking I don’t think this is true but there are other examples of men with transvestic fetishism committing sex offences against women.

Jacqui then talks about how self-conscious they feel using female facilities even though they have had a ”full transition”. Maybe this reflects some subconscious (or conscious) awareness they are violating women’s boundaries and women are undressing because they think they are in an all female facility?

Jacqui’s preferred solution to this issue is ”gender neutral” (a.k.a mixed sex) facilities. Unfortunately for us Jacqui was listened to over women and gender neutral facilities spread across the civil service and wider society. If Jacqui had walked a mile in our shoes and understood women’s history they would not casually strip single sex spaces from women.

This is what the government had to say on it’s consultation toilet facilities, launched in January 2021. 👇

https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/toilet-provision-for-men-and-women-call-for-evidence/toilet-provision-for-men-and-women-call-for-evidence

In recent years, there has been a trend towards the removal of well-established male-only/female-only spaces when premises are built or refurbished, and they have often been replaced with gender-neutral toilets. This places women at a significant disadvantage. While men can then use both cubicles and urinals, women can only use the former, and women also need safe spaces given their particular health and sanitary needs (for example, women who are menstruating, pregnant or at menopause, may need to use the toilet more often).

Women are also likely to feel less comfortable using mixed sex facilities, and require more space.

By then Jacqui was out of the civil service.

It’s difficult to make an assessment of how much damage was done by the various trans-identified males in the Civil Service. I sense Jacqui has a growing appreciation that the, ever-expanding, ”trans” umbrella presents a range of new challenges. Developments over the last decade have jeopardised the privileged access to female spaces they have enjoyed for over 30 years. At this stage the ethical decision is to campaign for gender neutral spaces and single sex spaces and illustrate your good faith by ending use of female only spaces. By continuing to use female spaces, by stealth or emotional blackmail, you are violating women’s boundaries in any space where women are undressing or merely meeting to discuss issues that only affect women, as a sex class.

Megan Key: Update.

Featured

Megan Key has a senior role in the Probation services and came out as “transgender“ in 2013. Just two short years later Key was advising parliament on ”transgender” prisoners. Subsequent to publishing that piece I was pointed to further information on Megan. You can read part one here so you can understand why Megan’s sexual boundaries matter.

Megan Key: Probation Services

Meghan Key on Instagram.

Megan Key

There is no attempt to separate a work identity from social media profile so it is not hard to find. Here is Megan at a pride march which is posted on their instagram.

Key also laments the demise of a kink club.

This is posted on Key’s instagram once again showing how fetishising women’s bodies is so often clustered with other fetish activity. If this seems like a bit of over-reach all doubt will be dispelled when you listen to Key on a podcast they appeared on.

Thanks to a tip off I had the dubious pleasure of listening to a bunch of self-identified “sex-positive feminists” discuss sex on a “women only” panel.

Naturally they wore their ”progressive” credentials on their sleeves and included a male; none other than Key.

You can listen to the podcast here:

What do women want from sex?

What do women want from sex?

In this podcast we learn that Megan first had sex at the age of 29. They claim this was because of their ”Gender Dysphoria” but later we found out that they were also twenty stone and had body image issues. Key points out that they had ”gender affirmation surgery” at 41 and they used to identify as a Lesbian but they are now open to sex with all gender identities.

At 10 minutes in they talk about their sex life which now includes sex with men, women, ”trans” women and non-binaries. Later (37 minutes in) we will hear about Megan’s experience of having public sex with a ”non-binary” partner, in an exclusive gay men’s club that set aside one night for people ”assigned female at birth”, a category which Megan felt entitled them to attend. While having the public sex there were three people, who Key describes as ”women” who were having sex next to him. (They are now all facebook friends: cue audience laughter).

32 minutes in Key talks about red flag behaviour and bad boys. Some men who might appear abusive can be exciting. He says this after talking about working for the prison & probation services and working with survivors of domestic abuse.

Key goes on to talk about how exciting it is to have multiple relationships with people who meet your different needs; especially the excitement garnered from someone who ”treats me mean to keep me keen”

The next section is about holidays for young swingers and apps for young people who want more ”freaky” encounters and Megan is keen to say they attend parties for young swingers. (36 minutes in). Key says they were quite ”vanilla” until they transitioned but has now discovered queer porn which is ”amazing”. The person who introduced them to queer porn was into the kink scene. Cue more sharing from Megan. Followed by raucus laughter.

45 minutes in Key once again gets chance to talk about the queer sex he has with a lot of people and his neo-vagina’s insatiable appetite for ”lube” the ”slipping and sliding makes it a lot more fun“.

Next up one of the audience members introduces polyamory and this is an opportunity for Key to share details of his polyamorous relationship. Key lives with a partner but they don’t have much sex because they don’t meet Key’s needs. Partner is also ”trans” and not keen on monogamy so they are both in a committed relationship with a third party.

At 57 minutes Megan explains that their sexual orientation is now more fluid. As a man he considered himself straight because he had sex with women, then he described himself as a ”Lesbian” but now he rejects labels to describe all the queer sex he’s having. He’s just into sex with people (anyone?) now.

1:01 Megan describes a holiday with his ”cis-het” men friends and some “trans-femmes”. He could see there was an attraction between the ”cis-hets” and the ”trans-femmes” but the men were avoiding having sex with the ”trans-femmes”. According to Key this is about the stigma those men would attract if they engaged in sex with a ”transwoman” but, thankfully the millenials are a lot more open. He then proceeds to laud the openness of the LGBTQ community and how we ”cis-hets” could learn from their openness. He than quotes a Stonewall survey showing 50% of young people don’t identify as heterosexual. Next up a bit of cotton-ceiling rhetoric.

Next up someone (female) in the audience talks about deficits in sex education and one mum in the audience says nobody is too young for sex education and she thinks we should start it from birth! She also thinks it’s great that kids have no shame so you can teach them very young.

1:21 is another opportunity to tell the room he has been having a lot of sub-dom sex. Cue lots of raucous laughter and onto the raffle! One of the prizes is, predictably a pair of handcuffs and participants are recommended to share their prizes and tag in the companies who donated.

In conclusion Megan is one of the men working, in plain view, to undermine women’s rights to make any distinction between his identity and women as a different, sex-based, category. There are a number of such men in key policy positions who are being listened to on ”trans” issues with little regard for women’s rights. Our consent is being over-ridden in a big fuck you to #MeToo. I am going to do a series on men behind the scenes who will, seemingly, stop at nothing to force women to participate in their fantasy.

Megan Key: Probation Services

Featured

So many times you will find trans-identified males making decisions that affect women. I am going to do a series on those ”trans” individuals you may not have heard about. Some have contributions to embedding Gender Identity Ideology in the public domain. Some lurk in the shadows so it is difficult to discern the precise role they have played. Irrespective it is inconceivable they did not influence policy.

Meghan Key and Prison Policy.

I first came across ”Megan” when following oral evidence given to the Women’s and Equalities Committee. This is all captured on Hansard, which produces transcripts and links to Parliament TV. This session took place on Tuesday 15th September 2015.

You can watch the full session here:

Parliament TV Oral Evidence to WESC

You can read the full transcript here: Coverage of the session which included Megan starts on page 22.

Oral Evidence Megan Key et al

This was the second session of the day these were the participants for the day.

Megan Key goes first and makes it clear they are not only employed in the probation services but they are also a trans-activist. This is a key motivation for him. Megan is one of seven equality managers across the probation service (NOMS) in England and Wales, and the national lead on trans issues. ( I wonder what reception you would get if you announced you were a radical feminist activist🤔). Megan is Equalities manager (plural) and yet is hell bent on undermining protections for the sex he claims to identify with…

These are some of the organisations they have worked for: Mermaids, Diversity Role Models, Stonewall, All about Trans and his own creation TransWorkersUk. This is a list of the most trans-extremist organisations. Megan isn’t letting them down, as you will see.

Megan was shortlisted for the 2016 Diversity awards where we learn that Megan began identifying as a ”woman” in 2013. Less than two years later he is advising parliament on how to make prisons mixed sex. Naturally he is promoted by Stonewall and making public speeches.

Megan was also involved in an organisation called Gender Matters and was invited into Birmingham Schools. Gender Matters appears now to have been discontinued.

Megan also pops up as a director for the company behind this initiative; a pop up centre to provide an alcohol free venue to serve those who claim an LGBTQ+ identity. Pictured below.

The above examples are illustrative of the deep immersion in a trans-identity which appears to be all consuming. When your life depends on a denial of something as basic as biological sex it needs us all to participate to validate the identity. It is therefore little wonder that Trans Activists are hell bent on socially engineering society so that it appears to reflect back their, carefully curated, self-image. Interestingly Megan has this to say in one of the interviews I found. This in an interview to discuss the importance of “inclusive” language. A bit of an irony klaxon moment. 👇

Leaving Megan’s extra curricular activities to one side the important issue, for our purposes, is Key’s influence on the policy for ”transgender” prisoners. Megan is open about their influence on prison policy and how they were keen, and apparently instrumental, in expanding the number of males housed in female prisons to include those without a Gender Recognition Certificate.

Megan advocates for this “inclusion” despite the paucity of research into the offending pattern of self-identified ”trans” people, or those with a Gender Recognition Certificate. Frequent reference is made to the lack of such research but the Ministry of Justice went ahead anyway. Panel members profess to want some research to be done but Megan points out we need the permission of the ”trans” people themselves because some of them don’t regard themselves as “trans”.

It was the responsibility of our legislators to make sure we knew the composition of the kind of males to be unleashed on incarcerated females, they failed to do this due diligence. More and more evidence suggests we may be placing a subset of the more dangerous males in the female estate. Undoubtedly some will be assuming a ”trans” identity for nefarious purposes but, for some, the driver for their ”trans” identity is sexually motivated due to having a sexual paraphilia; whether full blown autogynephilia or transvestic fetishism. Indeed the British Association of Gender Identity Professionals pointed this out to the Chair of this inquiry, Maria Miller.

Here is a clip where they point out the naïveté of anyone assuming male sex offenders would not take advantage of this loophole.

Unbelievably Maria Miller is more horrified at levels of cynicism from people who question a ”transgender” identity. Basic safeguarding requires a level, I would say a high one, of cynicism. Instead this panel view caution as prejudice and Megan makes it clear that Prison staff are being educated not to employ their instincts; which have been rebadged as “transphobia”. (I am thinking I need to look at Professor Brookes at this stage).

Never mind that stalwart defender of women’s rights, Jess Phillips, is there she will surely speak up for females, surely? Well she did refer to the pesky feminists who want single sex spaces. Here is what she said about those women. 👇 She does NOT agree, how much clearer can she be before women realise she is not on the side of women.

At one point Jess makes the rash assumption that sex offenders would be barred from the female estate. She is soon corrected and makes NO attempt to rebut this argument, even though she is speaking to someone currently inputting to a review of policy around “transgender” prisoners. As you can see, below, Miller swiftly changes the subject to vulnerable “trans” prisoners.

To understand the import of this aim you have to follow the words of trans activists themselves. Here is a quote from James Morton who was involved in drafting Scottish Prison policy. {This was quoted in a book by Christine Burns who has also made his ”transgender” identity his life’s work}.

It’s strategy, stupid!

Basically if we can get society to accept something so egregious as males in female prisons the sky is the limit. 👆. Not to be outdone, as we have seen Key upped the ante to publicly pronounce even being a sex offender, should be no bar to the female estate.

The mad professor lays out his thinking very clearly. After some guff about “trans” people and their timidity and wishing to keep their head down he also uses a version of ”brave and stunning” for anybody coming out whilst in prison. He goes onto say this which is why we should never have entertained the idea that men can become women:

He thinks we have to move on from the idea that male sex offenders don’t belong in women’s prisons “if we recognise them as women. This is the logical conclusion of chanting the mantra ”Trans Women are Women”. From what I can gather from Brooke’s research and his social media profile, he is keenly interested in rehabilitation and may have a religious motive. Much of his research is no doubt motivated by laudable aims but, in this case his, Christian compassion for vulnerable women is in deficit.

In conclusion Megan is one of the men working, in plain view, to undermine women’s rights to make any distinction between his identity and women as a different, sex-based, category. There are a number of such men in key policy positions who are being listened to on ”trans” issues with little regard for women’s rights. Our consent is being over-ridden in a big fuck you to #MeToo.

Tara Hewitt: NHS.

Featured

This week the EHRC issued guidance which attempted to clarify, for service providers, that single sex services can be provided to women only. Tara Hewitt, an NHS employee, immediately took to twitter to denounce the guidance and urge senior NHS staff not to comply. Shockingly many senior people in the NHS Agreed.

EHRC Guidance.

The guidance itself is actually a restatement of the law. Even those men with a Gender Recognition Certificate, conferring a legal ”gender” status as a ”woman” ,can be legally excluded from female only spaces providing the exclusion is “legitimate and proportionate”. The problem we have had, for many years, is the widespread policy capture which has made service providers wary about using these exemptions, hence there is little case law to flesh out the circumstances in which women have the right to expect a single sex space actually excludes males. The Trans community is very litigious and between their legal challenges and the relentless ”trans” propaganda, NHS trusts have capitulated to the demands of the ”trans lobby”.

The end result has been this shocking case of a female patient, raped on a ward claiming it was female only. On reporting her rape she was told it had not happened because there was no man on the ward. The hospital itself lied to the victim.

For a hospital to collude with this is, of course, heinous but they are not helped by the privacy requirements built into the Gender Recognition Act. If the man in question had a Gender Recognition Certificate and this information is obtained because of your professional role, there are legal sanctions for revealing this information. At the present time the fine is set at Level 5 which is an unlimited financial penalty. This has created the bizarre situation where a member of staff is forced to tell you that an obvious man, is a woman.

What do we know about Tara?

This is Tara Hewitt. They are currently head of Diversity and Inclusion for the Northern Care Alliance (NHS).

Tara is also a trans-activist and co-founder of a Lobby group TELI.

Tara is employed by the NHS and once stood as a candidate for the Conservative Party. Because they have a public profile we know more about Hewitt than, perhaps, we would like. Tara is a Catholic who is opposed to women’s reproductive rights. In their spare time they also have a few interesting hobbies. {As covered in the Liverpool Echo, link below}.

Tara Hewitt

Tara has a YouTube channel and one of the uploads was a presentation given to staff from the Macmilla charity. It makes for a very interesting watch.

Tara Hewitt

Tara announces their job title as Diversity and Inclusion lead for UniversityHospitals Trust, South Manchester. Hewitt had been incited to give a talk to Macmillan by one of the people present who worked with them on the Manchester LGBT Cancer Support Alliance. Tara advises that they also work as a freelance diversity consultant and have worked with NHS Trusts across the U.K, they also lecture Health and Social Care students in different Universities. They have also advised prisons on inclusion. Tara was also part of an initiative called ”Trans Equality Legal Initiative” with these partners. 😳

Garden Court Chambers are currently being taken to an Employment Tribunal by Alison Bailey, one of the founders of LGB Alliance. You can read about her case here and also donate.

Action For Trans Health are one of the most extreme Trans Activist groups. Here are just a sample of the demands made, in a manifesto, which was public in 2018.

You may also remember the case of Jess Bradley, the first NUS Trans Officer who disappeared after posting pictures of himself indecently exposing himself at work. Here he is with Action For Trans Health.

As an aside, Tara is the worst presenter and totally unable to garner any engagement. I would love someone who had been there to tell me how it was received.

First there is some ramblings about intersectionality, with a trans spin. Then Tara tries to get participants to guess how many trans people will present with cancer. He claims this will be 300,000 out of a population he estimates at 600,000. He then proceeds to define trans people.

Transsexual in Tara’s world is someone who operates in a Gender Binary and has adopted the opposite Gender Role and this is irrespective of surgical status. According to Hewitt they dont need surgery to legitimate theor ”trans” status. Next he includes Drag Queens and Drag Kings. Next he moves on to cross-dressers and has this to say, in a room which appears to be predominantly, possibly all, female.

He doesn’t stop there:

It’s telling that this talk is met with stony silence. I would have reported this as sexual harassment. Tara then gives a mini lecture about why we should not judge so long as people are happy! (He can fuck off. I am judging, right now!). This is someone with no boundaries who we are allowing to influence policy and who also, by the way was appointed to Chair the Board of Governors at a boys school! (I checked he is no longer there).

He then lists a whole load of other ”identities” under the trans umbrella including transvestite which is when you want to parade your fetish in public. Some bether about non-binary and gender queer and them a tiresome lecture about pronouns….Sigh.

He also reminds the women to use the terminology that the trans person uses. One of them is that some transwomen prefer their penis a clitoris and it is polite to use the trans persons own terminology.

Tara then moves on to explain that a significant number of trans identified people are involved in ”sex work” and also many of them are sexually exploited. He does not link these two things and cautions his captive audience about not stigmatising those in the ”sex trade”. In order to reinforce the instructions to comply with the demands for preferred pronouns and not shaming men’s sexual proclivities, Tara throws in some made up statistics. The women are not even making eye contact.

This is who is influencing the NHS!
