Jacqui Gavin: Civil Service

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. 👇


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.

Researching Gender Identity Ideology, it’s impact on women’s sex based rights and the massive policy capture. I have done much work on prisons, legal cases that put men in women’s prisons and the medical treatment of vulnerable kids/teens groomed to believe they are “transgender”.


Mridhul Wadwha


I came across Wadwha’s submission to the Transgender Equality Inquiry when I began a series to look at all the contributions. This has proved to be quite a time consuming endeavour and will be a long term project. You can see all the written submissions at this link below. Many are anonymous but some familiar names appear.

Written Submissions to Trans Equality Inquiry

Mridhul, for anyone unfamiliar with him, is a man who describes himself as a woman and has used this identity to take a paid post, at a rape crisis centre. Under U.K law these posts can be restricted to females which makes it an attractive proposition for these men. Wadwha has taken his need to be accepted, as a woman, to extreme lengths. What kind of man uses rape victims as validation aids and what kind of women aid and abet him? This is him from six years ago in a YouTube promoting the need for a self-declaration, Gender Recognition Bill. The “people just had to accept it” is a revealing form of expression; dripping with male entitlement. Link below, at 4:44. This YouTube also includes an appearance from Vic Valentine the pink news “journalist”.

Pink Saltire.

This is Mridhul laughing about lying about his biological sex to infiltrate the women’s aid sector. He really is laughing. He then became the CEO of Edinburgh rape crisis even though he LIED and is a man! This clip is via Wings of Scotland’s YouTube account.

Edinburgh Rape Crisis receives a large amount of funding from the Scottish National Party (SNP), also the National Lottery and the tampax fund. Here is Mridul with Nicola Sturgeon. Mridhul would go on to stand as a candidate for the SNP but he did eventually resign from the party. (When I started this piece I did not know it would end with Sturgeon’s resignation)!

Mridul’s departure from the party was in protest at a vote to allow female rape victims the right to refuse to be examined by a male. This gives you the measure of the man.

Astonishingly he remains at Edinburgh rape crisis despite some of his public pronouncements. Let us take a look at a few of them.

The above was a comment on the Guilty Feminist podcast. The comments appeared to be linked to the ongoing debate about female only services for victims of sexual assault. Wadwha’s response was in the vein of “even bigots get raped” but don’t expect not to be challenged over your “prejudices”

In the wake of the backlash to these comments the Scottish Green Party weighed in to support him, is issuing a statement via Maggie Chapman.

What Chapman failed to add is that she herself had worked at Edinburgh Rape Crisis.

Of course we have seen much more of Chapman in her disgraceful performance over the Scottish Gender Recognition Bill.

Chapman is on the extremist wing in relation to Gender Identity Ideology. She had this to say before the Scottish Parliament vited down amendments to stop rapists getting legal recognition as “women”.

You can watch this in full, below, on Alf Up a Tree’s Youtube: Alf is an important chronicler of this moment in history.

Maggie Chapman

In his submission, to the Transgender Equality Inquiry, Wadwha begins by boasting about his involvement in the Rape Crisis centre and in aid for womens of domestic abuse. He also reveals that he has manage to inveigle his way into the police service to provide training. He is also writing publications for the Scottish Government on forced marriage.

He also reveals his affiliation with Scottish Trans Alliance.

In this next paragraph he seems keen to let us know that his has stolen a paid role from a woman. He also provides some statements about “trans” victims he also makes it clear he includes “cross-dressers” under the “trans” umbrella. There is no data to back up his claim that rates of violence against the “trans” community are comparable to male violence against women and girls.

He extends those point to call for working together to oppose all forms of “gender” based violence in a move known as force-teaming.

He then moves swiftly to demand an end to the legal provisions that allow women to exclude men like Wadwha from imposing himself in a space for vulnerable survivors of male sexual violence.

He then proceeds to call for mandatory training on “trans” issues and for all women only refuges to be denied government funding.

He ends with a series of demands about “trans” migrants.

This is Wadwha’s submission

TRA0219 -Mridul Wadwha

I will just end with some clips from an interview which Wadwha did with The Student.


A couple of clips jumped out at me. He is, of course, afforded female pronouns throughout. I am sure I am not the first person to notice what a strange emphasis he had in the interview on orgasm during rape.

He also makes a rather tone deaf observation about how he tries to keep the work “fun”

He also has the gall to say that men couldn’t possibly do the work he does.

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.

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.

Sophie Cook: TRAs behind the scenes


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.


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.


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!

Examining the spread of Gender Identity Ideology. Bad for women’s rights, gay rights and dangerous, reality denying cult.


Steph Calvert. (Part Two)


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)


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.


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.


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.

Alison Pritchard: TRA behind the scenes? Part Two: GEO


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?

Prichard’s linkedin does not go back further than 2009 but elsewhere we can learn they have been with the Civil Service since 1987. Spent 5 years in Saudi Arabia working on UK Defence. Has also been responsible for the National Lottery.

Government Equality Office (GEO)

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.

Alison Pritchard: TRA behind the scenes? Part one: GEO


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?

Prichard’s linkedin does not go back further than 2009 but elsewhere we can learn they have been with the Civil Service since 1987.

Government Equality Office (GEO)

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.


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.
