Trade Unions. (Part 2) 18b

Featured

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.

full_conference_packet

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.

Interview

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.

Samaritans: It is time to talk.

Featured

Originally published in 2021. Updated 2022.

The Samaritans is a charity, based in the U.K, set up to help people in distress. They focus on providing 24 hour helplines, staffed by volunteers, whose aim is to avert self-harm or suicide. Apart from providing research on risk factors for suicide and they also teach media outlets how to report on completed suicides to avoid, inadvertently, fostering suicide ideation or even copycat suicides in specific demographics.

Given the charitable objectives of the Samaritans it has shown a marked failure to condemn the routine deployment of suicide threats to advance the aims of the Trans Lobby. If you are unfamiliar with the way questionable data on suicide ideation is used to promote medical responses to children with “Gender Dysphoria” I have written about it below:

Suicide in the Trans Community

The Samaritans have written extensively about how the media should avoid over-sensational media reporting, and simplistic narratives associating suicide with a specific demographic. They write, knowledgeably about suicide contagion and “clusters” of suicides associated with, for example, high-profile suicide of celebrities. They acknowledge the specific vulnerabilities of young people and yet…The Transgender Lobby break this code on a regular basis and are amplified by media outlets and even MPs. Yet the Samaritans remain, studiously, silent about the regular breach of its media guidelines on suicide by Trans Lobby groups.

So, why would the Samaritans ignore the most egregious breach of its media guidelines even though they *know* there is no epidemic of suicides in Gender Dysphoric youth? Could it be that they have been Stonewalled? Lets have a look at their CEO, Julie Bentley. She joined in October 2020 and had previously been CEO of Girl Guiding and Action for Children.

6668FEAF-608D-42CA-B4DB-22D972ACDB97

Her chosen profile on twitter has the tell-tale sign of pronouns in the bio, and proud proclamations about kindness and social justice along with the inevitable “feminist”.

42458F12-F3FB-4233-963F-8EE2267FF698

Many of us have tagged Samaritans into tweets promoting suicide in our Gender Dysphoric youth and asking them for public statements to condemn the practice. This is just one example but I have done this myself, many times.

F0129E9E-88BD-4F92-AA57-8C60BE7C2DB1

Previously Julie has been CEO of Girl Guides and Action for Children. Both these organisations are Stonewall Champions. It is not clear if Samaritans are paid up members of the Stonewall racket but Julie is an enthusiastic supporter. This is clip from an archive copy of Stonewall lists of supporters. As there are some high profile departures from the scheme Stonewall no longer allow public access to their supporter information.

08236471-A80B-44DA-8389-BED8F98230C6

Girlguiding has been the subject of some controversy under Bentley’s tenure as it was under her that the organisations became mixed-sex and guide leaders were terminated for raising concerns. Here is a link to her statement given at the time:

Girl Guides

F3CEE3D5-882D-433E-B272-1C85A7449369

The response neatly side-steps the issue of Adult, male guide leaders.  It also ignores a girls right to bodily privacy especially because some of these girls will have developing bodies and may already be menstruating. That is a time when many girls are self-conscious about their bodies and bodily functions. 

Bentley also reveals that she was taking advice from a Trans Lobby group. Note that below she says that only in *some* instances are separate facilities used. 

42ADEDE2-0A8D-49D7-BACA-C701F33C49B2

This remains a controversial topic for the Girl Guides long after Bentley has moved on. This is one of the guide leaders causing a fuss this week.  You can read more about this below and note that women were expelled for warning this would happen.

Helen Watts was joined by Dr Katie Alcock who is currently fundraising to support a legal challenge if you have any spare cash to contribute.

Here Julie Bentley commends ex CEO of Stonewall, Ruth Hunt, who was responsible for turning Stonewall into a Trans Lobby group. 👇

Bentley continued her support for new CEO, Nancy Kelley.

F1CF2BA8-1EF0-449D-BA7F-088FB8C34572

Bentley has also spoken along side controversial Transing kids charity Mermaids. Two clips below, One from 2017 and an endorsement in 2020.

08A9B3BA-AC87-44D2-9505-EC7737D92358

Samaritans have even promoted articles propagating articles about Transgender Suicide as far back as 2016.

84604E90-227A-40FB-A1D5-E78C43288F28

Prior to Bentley’s time at the charity they also hosted “Dr” Helen Webberley of Gender GP. Webberley has had her registration suspended and is currently awaiting the outcome of another tribunal which is scrutinising her medical practices. Webberley was guest speaker at their AGM in 2016.

D5DA286F-A60D-4E12-AC84-402CD56CF1B8

More recently Bentley nailed her colours to the mast as controversy blew up about Stonewall and she made it clear which side she was on.

97B779FA-5040-49AA-ABE8-1C97144AA12F

I hope this explains why the Samaritans are maintaining a stubborn silence on the harms done in the name of Gender Identity Ideology. We are sterilising children, as young as 10, by putting them on Puberty Blockers which are invariably followed by cross-sex hormones. For males they will have stunted genitalia which will, even under their paradigm, make attempts to create a neo-vagina more difficult. Girls are put on a pathway to double mastectomy and often hysterectomy which is a response to vaginal atrophy induced by long term testosterone use. I cannot think of a situation more likely to see a spate of future suicides as regret kicks in. If CEOs of Charities don’t have the courage to do their job they should be removed.

While we are entitled to some celebration as more and more organisations extract themselves from Stonewall we are not going to be able to rest on our laurels. We face an uphill and lengthy battle to undo the damage. Firstly there will be multiple organisations keen to step into the breach and hoover up the Trans pound. Secondly Queer theory is embedded in our universities and churning out graduates saturated in (Judith) Butler Bollox. Whilst many of us were concerned that the European Union is captured there is a danger we could become tied to a U.S trade deal that comes with strings attached. The list of companies and public bodies who were indoctrinated by Stonewall is long. Even though Stonewall Champions list is shrinking (hence why it is no longer publicly names its supporters) the indoctrinated remain in those organisations.

Here is the archive list of Stonewall supporters. We need to root this ideology out of all of these organisations and it is going to take a long time. Help me keep going, if you can, below.

Stonewall Champions

Update: 2022.

Since writing this article I discovered that the Samaritans were captured much earlier than I thought. In fact the Samaritans were involved in the Beaumont Society, an affiliate organisations for the wives of the Transvestite /“Transsexual” organisation, set up by the Beaumont Trust. {These quotes are from the book “Trans Britain” by Christine Burns).

The Samaritans listed all the organisations to help “transvestites/ “transsexuals” find each other back in the 1970’s.

Clearly the Samaritans remain captured. Here is a tweet from November 2022.

Council of Europe: Moral Panic

Featured

After looking at a document produced by a coalition of Philanthropic organisations, and Children’s charities, I came across another, eerily similar, publication produced by the Council of Europe. The COE also claim there is a rising tide of hatred, against LGBTI people, across Europe and they also assert that women, fighting for sex based rights, are somehow part of this “hatred”.

COE gender critical

The Council of Europe is not to be confused with the European Union. The Council of Europe are a separate organisation, though their website makes it clear they work in concert with the European Union.

The United Kingdom is amongst the countries shamed for its “virulent attacks” on the rights of LGBTI people. This is possibly a reference to the successful defeat of an attempt to allow males to Self-Identify as women. I have looked at the legal cases the COE proclaim as good news and one was a man in France who successfully argued he should be allowed o identify as a woman without going through Sexual Reassignment Surgery. The COE points out that such surgery leads to sterilisation and therefore should not be enforced. I wonder at the hypocrisy of allowing children to consent to sterilisation procedures (which is the outcome of being put on Puberty Blockers which invariably lead to cross-sex hormones) whilst, simultaneously, claiming sterilisation is a barbaric outcome when applied to a grown man!

E167E78E-45DE-4104-B83A-0333B987A05F

The language used in the report is straight out of Trans Rights manuals/ queer theory philosophers. The authors simply cannot conceive of spontaneous, grass roots, women led, activism which objects to the impact of Gender Identity Ideology on our sex class. They badge the opposition as “highly conservative”, use the offensive language of “Cis” and deploy people with disorders of sexual development to shore up their argument. Below they have the temerity to include, as an afterthought, that Gender based violence also affects women! Who knew?

9C13539E-333A-4D1C-9318-8834D0E2594B

Naturally they describe gender-critical feminists are “anti-trans” rather than pro-women. They claim concerns about the negative impact of Gender Ideology, on women and children, are false. We are, apparently, denying the very existence of LGBTI people and undermining social cohesion. The sex which is being reduced to cervix-havers, persons who bleed etc is accused of dehumanising LGBTI people! They ignore the people in this fight because who are Lesbians and Gay men and object to being told their sexuality is based on ”genital fetishism”. The people labelled Intersex are people with recognised medical conditions and it is not GC feminists who are reducing them to an ”identity”.

5E020B9E-0FDF-4FEC-962D-A9785BFE1D27

The above paragraph is eerily reminiscent of the document I covered in earlier blogs.

Manufacturing Moral Panic: 3

Like the Global Philanthropy Project they do not like the fact we are exposing their ideology. They cannot accept feminists fight for the rights of our SEX. The argument that redefining our sex class to include males, the oppressor class, doesn’t impact on the group you are colonising is laughable.

Here they make the case for all member states to make sure minors are taught Gender Identity Ideology. As the Jesuits say ”Give me the boy at seven and I will give you the (wo)man”. Why are they so keen to indoctrinate minors? Teaching children that we all have a Gender Identity is social engineering.

180C15B3-B917-455B-AB7C-AFC567A6880D

The backlash, to the spread of Gender Identity Ideology, always had the potential to be indiscriminate and the legislative moves in Hungary confirmed our worst fears. Far from allying with right-wing governments many of us have been at pains to warn the Left from emboldening attacks on hard won Gay, and women’s rights. Hungary has just introduced their own version of Section 28.

7C62FD18-09DE-4B8E-9F51-A0B659385C38

In an era when the rights of U.K women to assemble, peacefully, to discuss women’s rights is under attack it is beyond irony to see the COE posing as a defender of freedom of expression, association and assembly.

E290A054-C46B-4DEF-B7D4-3FA55F25AB0D

It must take quite a lot of cognitive dissonance to have an ideology that claims access to endocrinologist’s services is a human right and life-saving whilst also defending the rights of, de-medicalised men to claim legal recognition as female. Yet our law makers have gone along with it.

02014764-A4EF-49A5-BCE4-2B70BA0D9D0E

Women’s rights to Fair competition in sport are, we are told, akin to racism. Not content with the destruction of female sports the COE also demand access to facilities of the opposite sex.

98157B30-F35D-4B1D-9CD3-CFD0D9E4A9DA

It common tactic to conflate sex segregation with apartheid. David Lammy uses this argument all the time. Here he is speaking for the Gender Recognition Bill in 2004. (Source: Hansard).

5DB6230D-A545-4CAE-AD2F-F7862E7C9D59

The resistance to Gender Identity Ideology has clearly been noticed by the COE so, what is their response? They lobby for public education campaigns to re-educate the public about ”Gender Identities”. They urge nation states to re-educate it’s citizens to counter what they claim are “misleading or false narratives”. If only the proponents of this ideology had considered the impact of harmful masculinities, before dismantling the protections society evolved to minimise the risk to women and children.

7AD3E89E-907C-4151-B408-EA6D9DC4A121

Mermaids

Further evidence that Mermaids are being allowed to steer policy on this issue. A lobby group for “Transgender Youth” was invited to discuss the issues with Council of Europe. Elsewhere the document refers it’s readers to a parliamentary committee which took oral evidence from Lui Asquith, of Mermaids, as well as Nancy Kelley of Stonewall. 👇

8F3F4C55-34EE-414B-82A1-4D48C7974336

Are women the penetrated class now?

Wel, well, well. I assume here they are avoiding the terms man/male or woman/female and came up with the delightful penetrators or penetrated. 😳. Below is an attempt to persuade us the badging of men who are insufficiently masculine as inferior is a worse atrocity than telling those self-same men they might just be girls and legalising castration.

13427C1C-8F52-41B1-A013-9BBBF14DB612

Here the COE claim those with a concern about Gender Identity Ideology are of a Conservative, Christian disposition. They claim we are also against abortion and same sex marriage. I don’t doubt that people who have these values also don’t believe men can, literally, change sex but sharing one opinion doesn’t mean we share a world view. A recognition that biological sex exists is pretty important to defend same SEX orientation and women’s sex based rights. What doesn’t seem to occur to the proponents of this ideology that they have handed a weapon the right to use against actual progressive values like Gay/Women’s rights. It is easier to see the backlash as evidence of a gender critical conspiracy than acknowledge the negative consequences of pretending men can become women.

BB9C2AA0-3E70-4835-B1EF-598EE7F138A9

Naturally the COE are also listening to the discredited lobby group that is Stonewall.

F83CD49D-312B-4EE7-A160-5AA9336718D5

They point to a rise of “anti-gender rhetoric” which they badge as anti LGBTI. This serves to conflate homophobia with a backlash to the excesses of the Trans lobby: a dangerous idea which ensures the LGB are caught up with the rejection of Gender Ideology.

49080607-18D4-4917-B402-966B88D6BB90

This next clip is disingenous and misleading as well as being downright offensive by referring to women as “persons who have wombs”. Women know biological sex exists and we also agree, to varying degrees, that “gender” is based on sex stereotypes. Characteristics deemed to be typically “feminine” are, partly, culturally determined and vary over time. feminists know this. Different strands of Gender Critical feminism may debate the role, and extent, of Nature versus Nurture but we don’t deny the existence of biological sex. I would dare the authors to tell Butch lesbians they don’t celebrate diverse expression. In respect of non-binary I really cannot take that seriously. We used to celebrate subverting sex stereotypes/gender; we didn’t tell gender benders they should take opposite sex hormones and chop their cocks off.

60E45501-D881-4179-B87E-B884029E7FD8

This section is saying the quiet part outloud. If the re-education doesn’t work we will utilise financial levers to make sure you comply. This is a tactic used to great (by which I mean bad) effect in the U.K as funders make being “trans-inclusive” a condition for women’s refuges/rape crisis etc.

8BB94E53-1A4D-4EA4-9DDC-4C4B07CA9335

Here the COE detail the type of extremist application of notions of gender to include the full panopoly of genderqueer, genderfluid, agenda. They also give a nod to those cultures who provided accomodations, usually of gay men, by creating categories like Fa’afafine or the Hjira.

90F7D1DC-A950-4ACA-A7CB-F0664FC55FF4

Note 51 links to a YouTube video which I will cover in another blog because it sheds light on the evidence they rely on about attacks on trans people and their tactics to silence women defending sex based rights. I decided to follow up this link and it does not quite say what the author’s of this report claim but you can read my piece on that below.

11A6AC56-4F86-42B8-BE50-788641407FDE

Panel on Anti-Trans Backlash.

Here is a long section on the United Kingdom claiming that sex is immutable is labelled anti-trans rhetoric despite being a verifiable fact. Liz Truss is singled out for opposing the right of anyone to identify as the opposite sex based in their own assessment. Naturally this generated major concern from women fearful of the loss of single sex spaces. As usual there is a heavy reliance on hate crime incidents which are based on the self-perception of individuals who identify as victims. Reference 55 links a report, by Lobbying group, Galop. I had a look at the document and here are two clips about the transphobic abuse. The concept of second hand transphobia, outlined below, was a new one on me.

DC37575A-5328-42A8-AAAE-34B7EF5E6CD9

The link for Lui Asquith is to a parliamentary committee at which Lui Asquith spoke in March, 2021. I am astonished at so much credence being paid to this organisation and their they/them legal advisor. This is a clip from that parliamentary committee. Listen to how Lui talks about rising rates of de-transition amidst the growing scandal of, mostly young lesbians, who regret the medical interventions they have undertaken. The way Lui waxes lyrical about non-linear journey’s you would not think she was talking about young women missing breasts, wombs, sometimes ovaries, many of whom will be rendered sterile.

4155907E-F559-4A06-AC15-5CA9A38A12CB

I dont think Lui changing her pronouns is quite the same “non-linear, experience” had by the young Lesbian, detransitioners.

Not to be outdone the European Parliament itself has produced its own version about rising LGBTI hate and points the finger at the Kremlin! I will cover that document at some point.

You can support my work here. I am unwaged and have depleted all my savings fighting for Women’s rights, and to stop the “transing” of young Lesbians, Gay males, autistic kids and kids in care. All of these groups are vulnerable if we don’t stop the march of Queer Theory through our institutions.

Peter Tatchell: Three

Featured

Another outing for Tatchell on GB News. I have transcribed the whole thing here:

Peter Tatchell October 2021 Stock resignation

Alistair Stewart is the interviewer and tells us that Peter Tatchell is an “old friend”.

63B0805B-9C38-436F-AC9F-46F38DC026C8

Alistair introduces Tatchell as one of the best known Gay campaigners but then asks if this is an accurate description “after all those letters” . A necessary question now Gay rights has morphed into LGBTQIA+. Tatchell answers as follows:

061670F4-0A6E-42E8-B2A8-9F990EE7FAF5

It would be an interesting exercise to see if this claim stands up to any scrutiny. 50 years is a long time.

Calm Down!

There follows the ritualistic call for a calm debate instead of the “pitched battles” as Stewart references. This repeated request for a calm debate implies this is ”bad on both sides” when the aggression on display, almost invariably, comes from Trans activists and their allies. The threats of rape and sexual violence associated with the term “terf” are documented on the site terfisaalur, link below . This is illustrative of the male-typical response, when women say NO! to men.

Misogyny in Drag

https://terfisaslur.com/

This is a sample.

F16BB5E0-16B1-4978-9D56-68927F5BBF4E

The usual tactic is to dismiss this as a few psychopaths on the internet. However this has even extended to San Franscisco Public Library, who hosted a display of “Art” by a Transactivist group, called the Degenderettes. You can read about it in this article:

Misogyny In Drag

Here are some clips of the art work:

Here is an excerpt from the above article:

So, yes, women are angry but the tone policing of women is all over this debate; now that we are finally having one. It is fascinating how men don’t realise how society shames women for expressing anger and the double standards applied to male speech. Here is one interesting study on male and female jurors, linked below, this is the conclusion.

Angry women

2D0EDD4F-54E4-4156-9B6F-D62EFF4CA219

Tatchell responds by acknowledging the debate is “far too toxic” but clearly demonstrates where his sympathy lies. This would have been a good time to ask what Kathleen has actually said because I guarantee 99% of ordinary people would agree with her stance and some feminists, including myself would go further. You can find my review of Kathleen’s book on my site.

0288BCAB-099B-474F-B1AD-0084D67A8B94

On Kathleen Stock’s treatment Tatchell does say threats, harassment and intimidation go too far. There has been such widespread, media, coverage of Professor Stock’s treatment, which led to her resignation, it is difficult to deny. However he then goes on to make an astonishing claim for which I would like to see evidence of the abuse and how he can possibly claim the perpetrators share Kathleen Stock’s world view. Whilst he was making these, outlandish, claims it was Kathleen’s face on screen. Claiming women, feminists, campaigners against male violence send out rape threats! Threats to castrate him? Murder threats? I do not deny Tatchell may indeed have had all these threats but the idea these are people who share a world view with Professor Stock would be laughable, were it not so dangerous.

82C5BAED-222D-4089-9EBF-ADD886616558

Tatchell ends on a note which suggests he is providing brand new information, once again I wish he had been pressed on this statement. Actually, Peter, there are plenty of people denying biological sex is real, search #SexIsASpectrum. Look at the way people born with differences of sexual development (“intersex”) are wheeled out to deny humans are sexually dimorphic. Look at the demands males who claim to be ”women” are prioritised such that females have to accept their crimes in female statistics or their bodies in our spaces. If you really believe this you have not being paying attention. Giving ”Gender Identity” primacy over biological sex is the precise aim of this ideology.

2A345172-1333-4318-B2C4-DBE4C9AE643D

I spend time on Peter Tatchell because he appears to be treated as some sort of authority in some circles. He is not. He is not an expert on the impact of “Gender Identity Ideology” on women nor even on the impact on young gay males and Lesbians. He is trading on a legacy, much like Stonewall, and his contributions are not the calm, neutral, participant that some broadcasters assume.

Finally of you can afford to support my work this is one way. Only if you are salaried and able to support women who do this work full-time and for zero payment.

Peter Tatchell seems to be the go-to commentator on the anti-women’s rights movement which masquerades as a trans civil rights movement. I have transcribed this interview, by Alex Phillips, from GB News here:

tatchell gb news

The interview opens with this statement by the interviewer. I think she means this is a delicate topic and the campaigners are vociferous. She highlights the fact the term “terf” is thrown about with abandon. What she doesn’t say is the term “terf” is often accompanied with threats of rape and violence.

629D1FF0-20FD-4ECE-8811-A466BED81ACE

Calm down, dear

Peter’s response is to tell “people” to calm down; he often uses “people” when it is perfectly clear he means women. This is likely because he knows its a sexist putdown directed at the female type of people. Reassuringly Uncle Peter advises us that he does not see a conflict between women’s rights and the rights of men to identify as woman. Nothing to see here. Calm down you hysterical women. That is what I hear when he repeats the “calm down” mantra, ad-nauseum in every single interview, which I have seen, on this topic.

3689ABE4-3435-4484-BCF6-C073CEBE66CD

Tatchell includes males as women and is at pains to claim these men can be victims of misogyny. In fact the word itself is defined as hatred of women and derived from ”gyne” , meaning “woman” which is also the root of less obscure words such as gynaecology. Whatever males are suffering from it is not, therefore, misogyny. Naturally he references murder rates which I have covered before to show that trans-identified males are more likely to be perpetrators than victims. Posted in the link below. .

Forced-Teaming

So here Tatchell is “forced-teaming” women. This is a tactic to convince a group they have common interests with another group/person this “alliance” may in fact, run counter to their own interests. In this instance it has been used to good effect, especially in the “professional feminist” sector, they have been de-fanged by capitulating to the invented category of male-born women. A woman’s movement that does not centre the female sex is not worthy of the name. As I demonstrated above this category of male retains a male pattern of violence. I might add that this category also show no less propensity to sexual violence against women. I based this observation on incarceration rates of males in female prisons, in the United Kingdom. 18% of those in the male prisons are detained for sex offences, the percentage of males in the female estate, for sexual offences, is over 40%. You can argue this is abusive males gaming the system, the end result is the same. A policy of allowing self-proclaimed women in the female estate demonstrably exposes women to unnecessary risk. Tatchell is asking women to treat a potentially more dangerous category of male, as a “sister”. As a side issue I do wish someone would push him on whether or not he believes in Lady Penis; not because I think a surgically modified male is a woman, but so the general public know what Tatchell is advocating for/demanding of women.

Mixed-Sex Toilets.

Peter then slips in a reference the fact that GB news have mixed sex toilets and he, a man, doesn’t see what the issue is. Once again he uses “people”, not women when it is perfectly obvious it is women who don’t like sharing intimate spaces with the sex that rapes us. This is a deliberate tactic.

C22DEEA1-8E5C-4221-ABAE-85141A3F25DB

Nice reply from Alex Phillips who reveals she doesn’t like mixed sex toilets and has to go out of her way to find toilets she feels comfortable using. She also, correctly, suggested that developers love uni-sex facilities because it is a way to reduce costs. Tatchell doesn’t challenge her on this point.

Oxfam: Transwashing

Next up Phillips asks Tatchell about the, cowardly, decision of Oxfam to withdraw a game celebrating female role models. There have been various theories about why Oxfam decided to erase women of achievement in response to staff complaints. Some say it is because one of the women was JK Rowling. Others say it is because Ellen Page no longer identifies as a woman. Either way the game has been removed which looks like a bit of Trans-washing by Oxfam who have been rocked by quite a few sexual abuse scandals in recent years.

F14D38C4-716C-4F90-8405-ACA34F731EBA

False Equivalence: The “N” word

So how does Peter respond? He does a bit of #BeKind re the pronouns and then makes an astonishing pivot. He uses the analogy of racism to equate the erasure of successful women with people stoping using the “N” word. Is he saying it is offensive to trans-identifying males to see any celebration of successful women?

36EDE97D-FF20-4A97-83F1-E006C2852B38

A man for the Salary

Are women allowed to be offended by the growing list of men who have been handed awards reserved for women? Some of who are not even full-time with their colonising. See Philip/ Pippa Bunce. A man for the salary and a woman for the photo-gallery.

Father Tatchell goes on to offer forgiveness for accidental (accurate), pronouns. Providing you repent and seek redemption, of course. How benevolent.

57A61409-1D8F-4208-AD1B-1935CD08F773

Outrage archaeology

Alex then draws an apt comparison between the witch-hunts and the militancy of the pronoun police. Somebody coined the term “outrage archaeology” which describes the phenomonon of actively seeking an adrelanine rush from digging out, often historic, opportunities to generate a feeling of “synthetic offence”.

80348419-BDCA-4AF2-925E-9FF7C0200F65

Alex continues to raise the fact that Tatchell has been the target of abuse by trans-activists himself. Something I covered here 👇

PETER TATCHELL

I suspect his desperation to insert himself into this debate is motivated by self-aggrandisement, misogyny and a desire to ”queer” boundaries. His answer is to claim he has always campaigned for trans rights but he did sign a letter asking for a civilised debate and then, shock horror it turned out to have been signed by the wrong kind of feminists; who, of course, Tatchell calls “trans-critical”. He is keen to point out that letter “did not, in any way, criticise, deny or abrogate the rights of trans-people” , it merely called for civility. In conclusion Tatchell seems to acknowledge the tactics of the trans community are self-defeating.

1451E483-CEA7-415C-A70A-9AB452B2383B

I wonder if he got some pushback for acknowledging the aggressive tactics of trans-activists because the next interview I saw he made some astonishing arguments to claim there was “bad on both sides” . I will cover that interview next.

Panel on Anti-Trans Backlash.

Featured

This forum is hosted by Amnesty International and referenced by the Council of Europe, below. I watched it to see how it supported the claims COE made about physical attacks.

11A6AC56-4F86-42B8-BE50-788641407FDE

The link for note 51 goes to a long Youtube video which I watched to see the physical attacks referenced. The discussion is in two parts. The first part is a panel talking about freedom of speech, cancel culture, J.K. Rowling and the backlash against trans people. Women resisting Gender Identity ideology are referenced as ”so called feminists” or “Terfs”. It was quite interesting to see different views on cancel culture and no-platforming and one panellist even said something skeptical about accusations of transphobia. (#cancelled). There was quite an interesting discussion about algorithms on social media. The example they give of hate on social media is about a Drag Queen who got “hate” on their TikTok. Oh, and they were very upset that only fans was going to regulate on-line porn, which they were concerned would negatively impact sex workers.

The second panel comprised of various trans organisations, representing trans adults and one representative from Finland’s equivalent of Mermaids. One of the panellists describes women opposing males in our spaces as privileged and white and says they need to educate the younger teens to keep TERFs in a minority. They also say that nobody can be educated about a trans persons life if they have not lived it, this by a a male denying women’s experiences by the way. A blue-haired, they/them says TERFs just want to retain our status as rulers. A questioner from the U.K asks how to defeat the tactics of Women’s Place U.K (WPUK) which they claim as a target victims of sexual assault, as part of a recruitment drive. A trans-id female criticises this tactic as suggesting women are weak and argues that this is an anti-feminist position. They also claim there is no evidence women are afraid as we are often really aggressive. They also say women, fighting for sex based rights, collaborate with the far right, or at least the right. As always there is scant evidence to back this up. WPUK is led by women out of the left and trade union tradition.

This panellist tells the audience that Norway allows gender recognition for children as young as six and also talks about the historic position that required trans-identified people to be sterilised. Says they still have not won compensation for this, all while demanding access to medical solutuons for “trans kids” which will, in effect, sterilise those children.

CC0CF126-E230-472A-A4D1-6D07B8AD87B1

Next up a they/them female updates the panel on the position in Sweden and expresses concern that some feminists are raising concerns about the impact on women. Deidre finds it a bit disconcerting that some women still centre women in their feminism.

7AB6E946-1A7C-40DB-A1DD-F42D32D91EB0

Next up is a female who is a blue-haired non-binary type, pronouns ”them/theirs and comes under the trans umbrella. She also raises the issue of Finnish requirements for ”sterilisation” to access legal recognition. This is a common tactic which avoids saying they want legal recognition for penis-havers to be women and instead argues against it by calling it forced sterilisation.

2A696DC3-C70F-4EC2-B903-26554584D2A9

Final panel member is a She/Hers who echoes the concerns of the panelists but also wants to focus on the particular challenges faced by “trans people” of colour, asylum seekers and especially those engaged in what is referred to as ”sex work”. Paulie is also concerned about access to hormones for non-binary people.

F0C94461-6D09-41D5-8D2C-9BE7A44592D5

You can watch the whole thing below but I just want to leave you with these thoughts. The panel are disgusted with women standing up for sex based rights. They oppose sterilisation for adult males but defend medical interventions which will make children sterile. They consistently defend prostitution as ”sex work” despite the horrendous statistics coming out of the trans-murder monitoring project.

62% of deaths occur in prostition

Witch Hunts: Erasing Women. 1

Featured

People who get called Witches

I was prompted to do a series of threads on the European Witch Hunts after I came across this paper (linked below) which seemed to studiously avoid any reference to the sex of the Witches.

witch_trials

I remain irked by the failure to interrogate why the overwhelming victims were women but, on revisiting the paper, I think it offers a vantage point which explains the current witch-hunts against ”Terfs” and “Transphobesand the campaign against LGB Alliance. Bear with me while I explain.

The author’s hypthesis is based on the idea that the geographic distribution of the witchcraft trials correlated with rivalry between different religions. Catholics and Protestants were competing for market share. They provide a lot of analysis to examine other theories such as weather, income and state capacity.

D3AB7D40-EF5C-4D5B-A2E9-596D0AC521CD

The Woman Question

Throughout the paper the witches are described as people or persons, never women. The author has clearly read some of the same texts I covered in my dissertation; on feminist approaches to the with hunts in England and Wales. However he mentions this theory only in a tiny footnote.

7EB628C8-F5E5-4353-8559-0AD16A419EFB

Mary Barstow and Christina Larner analyse the phenomenon through a woman’s lens for a reason. Here is a clip from Larner’s book which I will cover in part two. The figures are quite stark. The percentage of females shows some variability within the United Kingdom, but the vast majority were female. It does not however invalidate their theory of religious rivalry, it just illustrates that women’s bodies are the main casualties in power struggles. It also sheds light on why men, raising concerns about Gender Identity Ideology, don’t get the same, aggressive, responses.

7613DCA4-A88F-474B-8BC7-1944568C3E74

Religious Rivalry: Market Share

Let’s leave aside any feminist theories, relating to widespread misogyny, I will unpick that in part 2. It is perfectly possible that the battle, for religious market share, was the main cause and that the main victims were female, because of misogyny.

In mainland Europe there was a battle for market dominance between the Catholic and Protestant churches. In England and Scotland the battle was between the Anglican and Presbyterians, given they had already broken, pretty decisively, with the Catholic church. In the battle for congregations a belief in witches was leveraged, by both sides. Here the author links this to political campaigns to attract undecided voters. Is this why Labour MPs are picking Gender Identity Ideology over the women they call dinosaurs and bigots?

5B228410-F4CB-4E43-A836-59ACD2A84E72

The authors present wide-ranging data to show correlations between areas of intense religious rivalry with high rates of witch hunting. They also interrogate data showing links with bad weather, a weakened state and the rise of judicial torture. They conclude that their own hypothesis is more strongly supported, by the data, than the other theories.

5D5EEE99-7132-4305-8462-5907BC5FB49A

This is the conclusion from the data they analysed. Religious market contestation was the key cause of higher rates of witch hunts,

ED70D8EC-9BE7-4E45-AE57-1CAA65FD5D6C

Here are some of the ways in which religious groups compete for dominance, bear this in mind when you consider the ways in which pseudo-secular, Gender Identity lobby groups, compete for market share. Protestants leveraged their relative youth to badge the Catholic Church as corrupt they also followed the age old seizure of young minds by colonising education. Catholics followed suit and also began a series of give-away Saints and beatifications to enhance their market appeal.

Gendered Souls & Gender Apostates

In a more secular world political parties, who identify as left progressives, have embraced Identity politics with alacrity; including Gender Identity Ideology. The doctrinal differences, which have emerged in the last two decades, centre on a belief, or not, in the idea of an innate Gender Identity. We can think of this as a Gendered soul, since it is unverifiable and relies on a faith like belief system. In the United Kingdom the main opposition parties have thrown their might behind belief in Gendered souls and prioritised this above the bodies of actual women. They have also cast out the unbelievers, the witches, from their political parties. The glee with which our Left Wing comrades have hunted down the apostates is eerily reminiscient of accounts of the Witch-Finder Generals, or as the Scots called them Common Prickers. On the left our Matthew Hopkins is Owen Jones.

The quasi-religious belief that a man can be born with a female soul and vice versa has swept across the globe and Trans Women Are Women has become an axiom of the British Left. The belief in an innate Gender Identity has been promoted by Stonewall, Mermaids, Gendered Intelligence and LGBT Foundation, among others. However, latterly we have seen the emergence of another group, LGB Alliance who assert a belief in biological sex and how it is central for the protected characteristic of sexual orientation. LGB Alliance has stormed into this debate like a veritable Martin Luther in the religio-gender wars. Are we at the outset of a Gender Reformation?

1525D8DA-37E3-42BE-8BFC-ED60FAF9AFFB

So what did our religious forbears do to oppose the upstart new competition? They improved their offer, offering indulgences and used education to inculcate belief in our children. The used a belief in witches to hold up a common enemy and punishment to discourage non-believers. The authors also draw a comparison between the Stalinist purges and the Chinese Cultural Revolution: The treatment meeted out to JK Rowling, Maya Forstater, Helen Scotow and even Miranda Yardley (transsexual, male) is all designed to crush dissent in the same way. Resistance is punished.

B782645B-5D49-41EB-A1FC-3F3838B13E6D

Monopolistic religions had another tool in their armoury.

Coercive Exclusion

28731495-DA7F-4D27-92F7-1836A6FA94AA

LGB Alliance is the Martin Luther of the biological sex believers. They must be removed from the arena lest they get more followers and threaten the hegemony of Gender Identity Ideology. Targetting terfs and transphobes and metaphorical witch-burning has not proved sufficient. LGB Alliance must have its legitimacy removed. One way to do this is to strip them of their Charity status and brand them a hate group. This is what a collection of Trans ideology disseminating charities have banded together to undertake:

C475CF8A-9480-45C7-88D8-9735E7AE7F8C

Amidst the usual transperbole about LGB Alliance these are two revealing statements: First up their belief that it isn’t fair, that LGB Alliance are engaging in cruelty, and the deliberate falsification that a belief in the immutability of biological sex equates to a belief in biological essentialism.

316FE489-DD29-46AD-9D34-DC1D18E45172

Its about money and market dominance

Once you cut through the hyperbole and mis-representations we get to the heart of the matter. LGB Alliance threatens Mermaid’s market share. Here they admit this:

A0493F9E-4657-414E-8BEB-5B90AC4228E2

Mermaids want to annihilate the opposition by de-legitimising LGB Alliance and diverting resources away from activities to provide assistance to Gender Dysphoric kids who may, if left alone, turn out to be simply gay males or Lesbians.

I will leave you with the immortal words of Talcum X. Not often I agree with Owen Jones 1984 but he is spot on here:

Manufacturing Moral Panic: 3

Featured

56E508FC-37C1-4C84-9B71-A290C3A7EA16

This section outlines the authors thoughts on a “Gender Restrictive Worldview” which is how they characterise those resisting Gender Identity Ideology.

Anti-Gender Identity Ideology: Its a spectrum.

The conundrum facing the authors is how to demonise a group which includes women fighting for sex based rights; Lesbians opposing the colonisation of their spaces by males; parents opposed to medicalised responses to their Gay / Lesbian offspring. The answer is to single out Anti-democratic forces or religious conservatives and suggest we are acting in concert. Naturally the report does not address any of the legitimate but, instead, they claim Gender Critical/Radical Feminists are in an unholy (or Holy) alliance with Right wing, authoritarian regimes / Religious Conservatives. Writing from within the U.K context its hard to characterise this as anything other than unhinged. But, for the sake of argument, let me proffer an alternative perspective. The proponents of Gender Identity Ideology have handed a gift to right wing players, anti-democratic forces / authoritarian regimes who have grasped it with both hands!

As the paper relies on “forced-teaming” with children’s charities they begin by accusing the “opposition” of leveraging faux concern about children. They repeat this accusation throughout the report mainly focussed on the child’s bodily autonomy to express (medicate?) their ”Gender Identity”.

Background to the consortium who are behind the paper is covered here:

Manufacturing Moral Panic

Gender Justice

The title they have chosen for their own movement is the lovely sounding ”Gender Justice”. This allows them to imply they are on the side of women when their real aim is to elevate Gender Identity, above SEX, in law. This has significant implications, particularly under U.K Law because women are a protected characteristic as a sex class NOT as an identity.

0650B85C-5D8A-4086-88E1-69FF7113C68E

The claim that Gender Justice has done anything positive for women’s rights is an egregious lie. Heres a short list of what this means for women: Women are facing the return of the urinary leash as toilets are made mixed sex. We are watching the beginning of the destruction of women’s sports, male rapists are being located in female prisons. Male crimes are being reported and recorded as female crimes. Men, who claim to be women, are running, party political, women’s groups (see the Green Party), a disproportionate number of places on the Jo Cox ”Women Into Leadership” programme were also taken by males, There are ZERO gains for women if we are redefined as an, all-inclusive, gender category.

The authors proceed to identify three factors which have contributed to the success of the backlash to Gender Identity Ideology. Here they claim that Gender Identity Ideology is being used as a substitute for ”Women’s Rights”; ”Equality”; ”the best interests of the child” all at the behest of the Vatican 😳. The reality is that women are fighting for our sex based rights and aghast at the erasure of female language and our dehumanisation as a collection of body parts. We raise child safeguarding because we do not believe it is in a child’s best interests to consent to Puberty Blockers and Cross-sex hormones, which will leave them sterile. I can assure you that the Pope is not in league with feminists of a radical persuasion. Papal opposition to women’s reproductive rights has set the Church on a collision, not a collaborative, course with feminists for decades, nay, centuries. This should not need pointing out but here we are…

16459E28-E636-4EEE-8DD8-5BB8980AAE83

It is a neocolonial movement if you import this ideology to parts of the world where women, and homosexuals have little or no rights. As catastrophic as this ideology has been for women, and gay rights, in the west, it has the potential to be far more deleterious in other parts of the globe. In Iran, for example, it is already seen as preferable to transition gay males, and Lesbians, rather than accept homosexuality. Exporting a belief in Gender Identity Ideology has the potential to be seen as a “cure” for homosexuality.

CFF2A7A5-BE01-41A0-9F78-2B2CAE387BB4

This is how they characterise Gender Restrictive Ideology.

70FF4AE0-85F9-4B09-96BA-A334B489E60B

  1. A belief in two biological sexes: Spoiler alert Humans are sexually dimorphic. There are shades of opinion about how women and men are shaped by nature/nurture but Gender Critical Feminists recognising biological reality is not a belief in biological essentialism.
  2. Women who recognise biology are not accepting an inferior position in the sex hierarchy. Quite the opposite.
  3. Many of us are parents of gay males or Lesbians who do not believe our kids need to retreat into a faux-straight, medicalised closet.
  4. The idea that Lesbians / Second wave feminists embrace a heteronormative view of the family and its reproductive mandate is beyond ludicrous.
  5. The idea that a bunch of, often atheist, feminists are cloaking our religious motivation in secular language is another testerical falsehood.

Next up the association fallacy. The Pope believes in the family, the reproductive role of the biological female in news that suprises nobody. I think he would be suprised to know he is in a covert alliance with any brand of feminism, but radical feminists?

5AAF0985-DACF-4C6B-8BF2-419DFAEA3D2F

The authors deploy Donald Trump, Viktor Orban and Jay Bolsanaro as well as 4Chan fascists to smear by a non-existent association. What the Gender Justice Warriors have done is to hand populists an open goal by embracing the science denialism of Gender Identity Ideology.

E640CFBB-7CC9-4DD5-A9B5-812502A2527A

Not content with this they accuse parents of denying their children’s rights by a refusal to grant bodily autonomy on the basis of gender and sexual identity. Let us unpack that. My son came out to me, as gay, age 11 as this is well below the age of legal consent my role was to accept his sexuality not support under age expressions of that sexuality. At 14 my son declared himself ”transgender” my role was to protect him from life-altering decisions until he reached maturity, not to allow Gender Identity Ideologues affirm his belief there is something wrong with his sex/sexuality. This entire movement seeks to drive a wedge between parents and children on this issue. You can draw analogies to Mao’s cultural revolution and Hitler Youth. Take your pick.

D7524B83-50BC-42DE-96BD-4C8BD04A5050

So, assuming they don’t mean bodily autonomy in respect of sexual behaviour, I can only assume they refer to accepting our children are #BornInTheWrongBody and affirming this belief by a social, or medical, transition. It is quite shocking to find a group of Children’s charitable organisations, signed up to this idea.

Here they reference Spanish Socialists who opposed 2020 bill which would allow teenagers to access hormone treatments without a diagnosis. The bill was also opposed by a far right group so they use this to smear the Spanish Socialist Worker’s party.

2E569239-64AB-49F2-888C-EC2E63987403

Note the final comment which demands funding organisations exclude feminist organisations which centre women in their work. If women don’t include males they are to be financially penalised. This is already happening, in the UK, with women only shelters and even rape crisis services cut off from funding if they are not Trans (meaning male) inclusive.

Next up they take aim at the U.K / Terf Island. Yes, there are numerous cases of male predators using a “trans-identity” to penetrate women’s spaces and bodies. Yes #BigPharma stands to make a killing from hormones by creating lifelong medical patients. There has been a 4000% increase in females presenting to U.K Gender Clinics and early detransitioners are predominantly female and, frequently, Lesbian.

E999B0C9-5E6B-4222-BE64-2536BF7C425D

All of the above issues are based on facts which are easily established.

The next target is the Women’s Human Rights Commission. Here they describe women with the acronym “Terf” . As I am sure the authors are aware “Terf” serves as a stand-in for bitch or witch and it is often accompanied by threats of violence, including rape.

5D5AAA63-0C77-49EE-BEDD-5D052F431310

You can check out the declaration by WHRC and sign it here: 👇

Declaration of Sex Based Rights

Minor Attracted People (MAPs)

Another worrying reference is to claim there is no movement to normalise paedophilia as another sexual orientation. You don’t need a PhD to find that MAP has become an acronym shared by many twitter accounts. Gay Rights campaigners fought for decades to dispel any association with pederasty. Recently there are high profile organisations seeking to disassociate a sexual interest in children from any intention to sexually offend. See Protasia Foundation, who even have a twitter account. They market themselves as committed to the prevention of child sexual abuse whilst promoting BDSM, Age-role play and Only fans. I am not convinced.

A647B406-0A1C-4107-A6F4-9F313AB99B6A

You can read more about this movement in this article. Below is an extract which documents an attempt to add paedophilia, as a sexual orientation, to the Manual of mental disorders. 👇. Happening in plain sight.

The normalisation of Pedophiles

525316B3-85E4-4A04-92EA-1FDA8B7A3932

Show us the evidence

The document attacks parental responsibility for our own children, denies the documentedpromotion of paedophilia as a sexual orientation, claims stating simple, biological truths are anti-trans. It repeats manifest untruths that are easily debunked. Attempts to smear women through association fallacy will fail. Buried in the 131 page document is this acknowledgement : They found NO EVIDENCE of any direct collaboration but they still accuse Gender Critical Feminists of being allied with the, mythical, Gender Restrictive Movement.

Manufacturing Moral Panic 2

Featured

Why is a network of Charitable funding bodies fuelling a backlash against women’s sex based rights? Why are organisations, set up to protect children’s rights, teaming up with organisations promoting Gender Identity Ideology?

For part one see below 👇. My previous post showed the links between these foundations and links to some of my earlier work examining the activities of *some* of these organisations. It also contains the link to the, 131 page, document endorsed by Global Philanthropy Project and Elevate Children’s Funders Group.

Manufacturing Moral Panic

In this post I want to cover the opening letter explaining why this coalition was established. I will also highlight some of the terminology they use in the glossary of terms. This is how they characterise women defending our sex-based rights. We are ”Gender Restrictive”. Heaven forfend we are simply called feminists because then it would be abundantly clear they attacking Women’s rights!

1733696C-EE69-48C3-A0AC-348D9F2B0619

The coalition makes sense in one respect. Much of the opposition, to the spread of Gender Identity Ideology, raises concerns about the medical interventions perpetrated on children. By which I mean blocking puberty and introducing cross-sex hormones, all to cement a Transgender Identity; this despite the same ideologues arguing that “Gender can be fluid”. I have covered Puberty Blockers many times on this blog. For neophytes, or as a reminder; in the U.K we are giving Puberty Blockers to children as young as ten, on the NHS. They, almost, invariably progress to Cross Sex Hormones and as a result they will be sterile. It therefore a significant concern that a coalition of children’s charities have signed up to this document.

The authors recognise that childhood is defined as up to the age of 18 by the Children’s Rights Coalition (CRC). It nevertheless claims ”adulthood” is influenced by the social context in which the ”child” lives. As far as I am aware we don’t defend child marriage, or child labour, even where a child is based in a country, or culture, which normalises these practices. This blurring of the boundary between child/adult is necessary when arguing children have the right to bodily autonomy in respect of accessing “Gender Affirming” care. I believe this is why Children are being reframed across a myriad of public /campaigning bodies as mini-adults.

I am glad they reference brain maturity because credible research states that brain maturation continues up to the age of 25. One of the key battle grounds, for the promotion of Gender Identity Ideology, is to argue for the empowerment of children. This allows arguments, for children, especially teenagers, to access medical interventions to cement a trans-identity, without requiring parental consent.

Brain Maturation

Here’s the abstract for that research.

Just a reminder about UK Law on getting a tattoo. It is not legal even with parental consent.

7C428299-122D-4A5F-8DF0-4FDBDEC2DE12

Next up the document quotes the Committee for the Rights of the Child (CRC) again. Note that the document explicitly references sex but the author’s quote another document to claim that this also covers ”Gender Identity”. Once again, this is a common tactic a sleight of hand to claim the law is in your side, even when you are arguing for it to be changed. A good example is the public campaign to allow anyone to ”Self-Identify” as the opposite sex and the more covert campaign to abolish single sex spaces. When it appears these laws are not going to change (outside of Scotland) campaigners are simply lying about the law to get it built into policy. [Hence the twitter hashtag #StonewallLaw].

665B20CC-0A0A-457D-8351-64E63AC762B2

Note the small print on this which references the ”transsexual” child. 👇.

402529D9-0FD8-4965-8475-74EA37188FBD

Heres another interesting aside. The rights of the child must take into account the child’s views. They also posit the view that the argument of “Best Interests” cannot be used to justify actions “inconsistent with child rights”. In the context of Gender Identity Ideology this is often deployed to argue children/adolescents have the right to bodily autonomy and to access ”Gender affirming” medical interventions. This takes us back to the notion of “transsexual children”; a description usually avoided.

Glossary of Terms

The glossary of terms at the beginning of the document are illustrative of the ideology under-pinning this document. It includes the newspeak of Cisgender, Transgender, Heteronormative, Assigned Sex at Birth etc. Intersex also makes an appearance despite this not being favoured terminology among those with Disorders of Sexual Development (DSDs). The term ”intersex” won’t be given up without a fight because the Transgender movement use people with DSDs to muddy the waters and suggest there are more than two sexes. (Humans are, in fact, Sexually Dimorphic).

I won’t treat you to the entire glossary but its worth including a couple of examples. Under Gender and Sexual Diversity can be found the definition of sex. This recognises biological sex only to claim it is randomly ”assigned” . They also claim sexual dimorphism is based on a common belief in a binary sex classifications. This equates scientific accuracy to a faith based position. In this section 👇 the author’s also feign allegiance with the interests of people with DSDs; who often campaign against unnecessary surgery on infants. Note that some surgeries are in fact medically necessary, DSD activists oppose only cosmetic interventions on those under age.

The section dealing with SEXual orientation is below. Of course they define it as a Genderal Orientation. And we must have a category for the oppressed asexuals or as I call them ”the shag anything that moves brigade”.

Whoever named Pansexual after a mythical, horny old goat at least had a sense of humour: 😂

403ABD27-FF76-451F-9EE3-F8163AFD35A2

So far, so predictable. Now we get to the definition of Gender Justice”. Note that the definition includes (cis) women’s rights. Yay, we actually get a category of our own! Don’t get too excited, it is prefixed with the insulting ”cis” and, read on sisters, they graciously deign to consider redressing the power imbalance between men and women “if necessary”! I think it is FUCKING necessary since you are re-defining us against our will.

Introductory Letter

Now we get to the letter accompanying the document which purports to explain why they felt it necessary to join forces to expose ”Gender-Restrictive” folks. This is newspeak for Witches, by the way. 👇

F9BEB02B-2473-43D0-AC5D-8FF5968E33E0

It is hard to credit the claims made in this document and the level of testeria fuelling the authors of this ”research”. For those of you familiar with DARVO (Deny, attack, reverse victim and offender) this is a classic of the genre. Apparently WE are distorting huMAN rights. Which is a bit rich coming from the Gender Ideology lobby who are all about the MAN in human.

We are also being accused of ”anti-democracy”. I cannot think of anything more anti-democratic than following a blue-print that encourages the passing of laws, by stealth and avoiding press-coverage. (See the Denton’s document. Blog below). More D.A.R.V.O.

Gender Critical Women as an “Alarming Trend”

4F363240-E68C-4A94-94F4-00C330CB67BF

Women defending sex based rights, Lesbians refusing to accept males as sexual partners, mothers fighting to stop the medicalising of, among others, gay and autistic kids, are planning State Seizure! They actually sound crazy! Below they even claim women, fighting for sex based rights, are actually the ones attacking women’s rights.

4ECF161F-4D54-4584-842C-3CF03A1CE4F7

Yes, there is a threat to children’s rights as activists are inculcating “Gender Dysphoria” in our kids and teens. Schools are teaching children a lack of adherence to sex stereotypes equals #BornInTheWrongBody. We are coaxing our gay youth into faux-straight, medicalised closets.

They also fear this Moral panic is effective. If it is effective this is because it is rooted in truth and (biological) reality. For the avoidance of doubt they do mean us! Here is a reference to ”So called ”gender critical” feminists. Nobody is arguing against human rights for trans identified people, in GC circles, we are fighting for sex based rights for women. No Conflict They Said. So, why does every fight for women’s rights garner an “anti-trans” label.

  • E6C465B5-ED72-4738-B95B-9E89F8C08EC2

Seriously they think we are well funded and have been planning this for 35 YEARS! I wonder why they didnt choose Terf Island (United Kingdom) for their country analysis? Could it be because it really doesn’t help their case? What with so many of us being Left-Wing, Trade Unionists.

48FACF4C-06A5-4A73-9E26-5E84475DF18C

The authors sound a warning to its disciples that they must unite to oppose the evil terfs and band together. Right side of history and all that.

Judith Butler & The Guardian

This week (7th September 2021) an interview with Judith Butler was published in The Guardian. It created a bit of a furore on Terf Island twitter, for comparing Gender Critical feminists to fascists. In the midst of the backlash the article was significantly amended. For the record, I do not think her words should have been censored. As it happens many people had taken copes of the article and, as the interviewer (Jules Gleeson) boasted on twitter, it has been drawn to the attention of far more people. (Search ”Streisand effect” if you need context for this tweet).

About Jules Gleeson

067B0F47-2FE1-455D-81A2-CCC06B8EEDB5

The interviewer is a self proclaimed intersex activist, with an interesting body of work.

27718EC7-6BEE-475A-BE2C-3FD2A2E136A2

It is perfectly possible the above 👆is a factual statement and they do indeed have a difference in sexual development (DSD). There are a number of variations of sexual characteristics which fall under the term; though “intersex” is a label that has fallen out of favour for many people with DSDs. It is also worth noting that many people selfidentify as ”intersex”, which is a contentious issue in these circles. The self-identifying kind of “intersex” tend to use this term because it serves to undermine notions of sexual dimorphism. Its a loaded term for that reason.

The interviewer has undertaken niche research centred on cross-dressing monastic saints and ”explanations of eunuchs as a normalised-yet-contentious feature of late Roman life”. I would quite like to read it to see why we are normalising this, again, in the 21st Century. I am quite serious. I am not a theologian, I am a devout, atheist. I am curious about the recurrent references to the divine in pontifications on transgender issues. There also parallels with some Christian ascetic sects, which practiced castrations/mastectomy to mortify the flesh. (See the branch of Russian Orthodox Christians , The Skoptsy). It would be fascinating to see how these world views overlap. Note, I am not accusing Gleeson of being Skoptsy adjacent. 😂. That would be an association fallacy.

86E063F1-5D30-446D-981C-BAFCB34EA20F

Here are a few of the other pieces Gleeson published, in the New Socialist. This should give you a flavour of their preoccupations. 👇

Here are some more pieces. Suprise, Suprise, they were not a fan of the Lesbians who protested Pride to defend same sex attraction. They have also castigated The Guardian, previously, for transphobia.

I am not going to link to all the articles but I will include this one, re the Labour Party Leadership contest, for sheer devilry. I particularly enjoy the way Peter Stringfellow is wedged into a critique of, female centred, feminism. Thats a smear, by association, too far for this feminist 😂.

The Offending Article in The Guardian

AC4218A7-62E3-4622-9204-42E942C800B7

Here the Queen of Queer wades in with her obsession for re-categorising the female sex, to include males. While the male sex still commit 99% of all sex offences, overwhelmingly against women, this is a breathtakingly naive stance. Her pronouncements about pronouns do not address the concrete realities about women’s lives. So far the advantages, for women, seem to be, checks notes, male rapists in female prisons, males competing in women’s sports, and the normalisation of dehumanising language like ”chest-feeder” or ”cervix haver”. Noticeably public information campaigns, for males, retain the word ”man” for the prostate-havers /testicle-bearers. Tis almost as if there is some SEXism at play in the gender justice movement.

0A7FE2FE-850D-453C-B064-58F179EC0DCC

She spouts the usual Butler Bollox about how we women just need to refuse to re-enact gender norms, as if nobody ever thought of this before. However, refusing to perform sex stereotypes, to liberate women, is not consistent with a choice to identify out of our sex category. In case you were not aware Butler now claims to be non-binary cos they is more enlightened than the rest of us! Are those of us claiming our womanhood deemed to be accepting the ”Gender performance” expected of us? Woman is a sex based category, this does NOT change; projections onto what being a woman means change, that is not the same thing.

Next up Judith demands that we accept a more expansive notion of womanhood which includes those who DO identify with the performance of ”Gender”. Surely this is reifying the notion of sex stereotypes and advocating carving them into flesh? If women reject them we can remove our breasts, if a man identifies with cultural norms associated with femininity he can modify his body to join the sisterhood. Doesn’t this leave us with medicalised closets for those who reject their sex, in favour of the physical embodiment of Gender Stereotypes?

Given that Butler also wishes to overthrow capitalism is she aware how much income is generated from the Gender Industrial Complex? CAGR (Compound Annual Growth Rate) of 25% is considered at the upper end of pretty good. 👇

Back to the Butler article 

37A0D5E8-BA44-4A3B-A7E4-DC27958EFA98

Would it not be more radical for men to expand the category of maleness to celebrate alternative variants of masculinity? We have challenged the straightjacket of sex stereotypes in many different ways, historically, without claiming that Boy George was literally a woman. Isn’t that more radical? The addition of trans men here also looks a bit tokenistic. Women tend to focus on issues raised by males invading the female sex class. Men need not have the same concerns about females invading their spaces because SEX Matters. It may be annoying to have a blue-haired, female, teen who thinks she is a gay man. It is unlikely to make adult males feel intimidated.

She also goes a bit terfy in this next clip. Could it be she knows males, socialised as males, don’t entirely learn to shed their learned behaviours when in ”Girl Mode”? Doesn’t an inability to identify out of their maleness have implications for actual women and girls?

EDCCB23C-2AE7-418F-910F-79BC98E6205C

Notice Butler then moves on to describe a struggle against ”Gender Norms” which could sit comfortably within a Gender Critical argument. Rejecting sex stereotypes is integral to (my) “Gender Critical” feminism. We know women are real, our sex shapes aspects of our experience but biology need not be primary and controlling, in all circumstances. However we do have different bodies, to men, and sometimes that difference needs accommodating. Some of these may relate to our reproductive functions, some of them may be related to other, sex based, health needs. Others may be more prosaic in that simple product design, based on default man, often fails to meet the needs of women.

50425124-1143-4706-B8BB-7CAC05FC620E

Below she is on the way to a good, if not original, point. From the moment our sex is recognised and recorded assumptions are made about the position we will hold in society. Girl children are left to cry for longer and fed less, we may be put in flouncy dresses which we are supposed to keep clean. We may be given toys to inculcate expectations of domesticity. Women’s liberation depends on unpicking this earlier grooming /female socialisation. It’s also beyond regressive to see medicalised identities as a “liberation” , for men or women, depending , as they do, on a lifetime on cross sex hormones. 👇

B1C0A8D5-0A9F-43C9-94F0-A78FD7C1DAA1

A couple of other observations. I am not a proponent of blank slate theory. I think both nature and nurture play a role in how the sexes are shaped. I am critical of the elements of female socialisation which encourage us to put our interests last. At the same time some of the qualities, nurtured by a female socialisation, are positive and it would be great if we inculcated them in our boy children.

ALL SEXES MATTER

This demand that feminism works to solve all the other problems Butler lists here, weakens women’s rights campaign. What other movement is asked to work on all the other injustices in the world. Can’t female people centre ourselves? We are half the population, except in countries that practice aborting female babies. This is the #AllSexesMatter for feminism.
Wry smile at Butler claiming to be against misogyny. She has lent credence to the biggest attack on women’s rights for decades. The ideology she embraces has unleashed a wave of misogyny unlike any I have seen in my lifetime.

F0FCF4B8-4D7A-40C2-BB06-2F76378FCA97

Here she says a white person cannot centre themselves in Black struggles but is simultaneously, maddeningly, blind to the obvious parallel in demanding women must centre males, in a movement for the liberation of women.

525B4F11-C955-4100-82D8-9AE55FA2968E

Lol at the navel-gazing, non-binary, theybe calling out the danger of becoming self-absorbed. 😂

Vatican Adjacent

It can hardly be news that the Pope believes man and woman are Godly creations. This is a rather run of the mill observation. However, one does not have to be religious to believe biological sex is real. This is what is known as “Association Fallacy” and it is a bad faith argument designed to paint women, who know what a woman is, as religious conservatives. To be fair, religious conservatives also deserve the protection of single sex spaces and even they are not neccessarily down with the Pope’s sexual politics. If all Italian Catholics followed the Church’s teaching on contraception, for example, it would not have one of the lowest birth rates in Europe.

778807AC-4563-49D2-BA30-1A9A4054605F

Heaven help us we are Vatican adjacent apparently. Next up some guff about pronouns and the world of ”they”

F7AEE050-2C42-45CA-9B0C-B906A4DA0A71

Here is the offending paragraph. The furore, for anyone who remains blissfully unaware, is about a male who exposed his genitals, to women and girls, at a spa. He was in the female section of a Korean spa, where going naked is the norm. A woman complained and was told the person was in that section because they identify as a ”woman”. This is legally correct under Californian law. Trans activists first claimed this was a right wing hoax. When it turned out to be true some, Laurie Penny (see below) pivoted “they should not have been looking because that is rude”. Finally it was revealed that this is a man with a history of sex offending going back nearly 20 years, Cue, tweet deleting or brazen double downs!

Again the lack of self-awareness from the Queen of Contradiction herself. She has not even come up with a stable definition of “gender” and yet wants all laws to give primacy to a nebulous concept over a material reality. Yet, apparently the Gender Critical movement is full of contradictions. 😳

68991AAF-8E05-4932-9CDC-6B375D13EF3D

Below is how Butler characterises the women fighting to protect single sex spaces. I will give her this she is throwing every slur that comes to mind. This is a ridiculous mis-characterisation of the women fighting for women’s rights. Many of the women, and men, opposed to Gender Identity Ideology, are same sex attracted, many of the women have fought for reproductive justice, and the vast majority are in this fight because of the higher risk of sexual violence when we dismantle safeguards.

C87BE241-5E86-4D03-BF12-D105897E31B2

Here is the part where she blatantly compares women, fighting for sex based rights to fascists: ”The anti-gender ideology is one of the dominant strains of fascism of our times”.

750F76B7-4505-4823-B3CA-2AEFB30A4E4C

I won’t revisit the issue of attacks on trans people. I covered the transperbole on murders of trans people (males) in this post 👇. In the UK the trans demographic is one of the safest and as a group they have committed more murders than have been victims. Globally the biggest risk factor for trans-id males is working in prostitution.

TRANS MURDER MONITORING

Butler & Ann Fausto-Sterling

Given that Butler recommends reading Anne Fausto-Sterling, in the above clip, here is detour to look at her work. She is best known for claiming there are 5 biological sexes.

She has since explained away as tongue-in-cheek prompting this memorable twitter exchange. Superb teacher voice coming through here. 👇

59935750-A3B2-48E2-92D3-6367306D19FC

Invariably when women are told to “educate ourselves” we do just that and it doesn’t end well for the sex-denialists.

6229BF96-9B1B-4486-9F39-B2A50D7606B9

I would like to see Butler render her ideas in a more accessible format because her prose style seems designed to obfuscate, rather than illuminate. There is an ambiguity in her thought process that looks tactical in its evasiveness. I am not alone in making this observation, indeed twenty years ago the Guardian itself publicised an award made to Butler on her prose style.

Butler wins bad writing contest

B02DA4A3-F2D3-4FE9-A10C-8F337F2DC3AA

In conclusion.

So, ”gender” is performative and needs to be disrupted to liberate us. Saying “gender is a destructive fiction“ is beyond the pale and makes us fascists. Gender is a problem if it is performed by the sex that aligns with the associated gender identity. So, a feminine male, in Girl Mode, is cutting edge, radical politics but a female doing the same is a boring old Cis girl. A man repudiating his sex, and becoming dependent on Big Pharma, to validate his lady feelz is going to destroy capitalism. A woman who rejects sex stereotypes can become a theybe or identify as a man. Some of these identities may need hormones/surgery but it’s not a requirement. Women need to get over their genital phobia and realise that a Woman with a penis is no threat, even if she presents herself like a man because that’s just queering the binary.

I think I’ve got it!
