Lesbians KICKING ASS! for Lesbians! at London Dyke March 2014

 

After weeks of online protest surrounding the controversial appointment of former LibDem Councilor Sarah Brown, a male transgender, as keynote speaker at the London Dyke March, a group of courageous lesbians staged an effective demonstration today at the march, raising awareness of how Dyke Marches worldwide have been aggressively colonized by “male lesbians”.

Many readers will recall former Councilor Brown as the male self-identified “polyamourous dyke with one male partner” who launched a public campaign to name the foul smelling drainage created by his surgically inverted penis (what he describes as “the smegma-like mixture of dead skin cells, gynaecological lube, stale urine (gives it its distinctive smell) and sweat that is sometimes present as a white residue on the end of a dilation stent when a post-operative trans woman withdraws the stent after dilating her neovagina.”) with the name of a prominent Lesbian Feminist anti-trafficking activist. Brown finally removed this disgusting campaign from his blog this spring, and responded to complaints by falsely claiming he had removed it “years ago”. I personally read the above quoted post on his blog at this link (http://auntysarah.livejournal.com/175926.html) on February 24 of this year.

While still an elected official, Councilor Brown made public posts on “The F Word” blog supporting the creation of legislation that would eliminate the rights of women to meet in women-only feminist political gatherings.

Brown, who calls himself “aunty sarah” next posted a series of ugly, misogynist, anti-gay and anti-feminist rants on his twitter account, the full details of which you can easily google, including statements that lesbian bodies are “off putting”, and “political lesbians must be sexually frustrated”, that he is a “better” lesbian than women because men “have longer fingers” (eww!), and telling lesbians to “suck my balls”. When the former Councilor failed to be re-elected this year (along with many others in the LibDem party) he claimed that “lesbian feminists” caused his political loss as well as a “nervous breakdown” by complaining about his grotesque and disgusting public comments. He violently warned that feminists might someday criticize a man “who has entirely the wrong kind of sense of humor failure”.

Sarah Brown’s outrageous behavior towards lesbians and feminists has a long and colorful history. Which is why women in the UK were stunned to discover that the organization of the London Dyke March had been fully taken over by the “male lesbians” that had been aggressively colonizing it for years, AND that they had invited Mr. “Suck My Balls” Brown to appear as this year’s Keynote Speaker! Insult to injury and all. There followed a flurry of online protest from women who were deeply offended, and alarmed that a purportedly lesbian event had become so thoroughly compromised. The male representatives of the now thoroughly male “Dyke March” responded to the outcry by banning all women from their Facebook page for “inferences that trans women are men”. Not only did the Dyke March ban women from discussion of the politics of elevating a male keynote speaker at a lesbian event, now the mere “inference” that transwomen are, well, “transwomen” (ie. male persons!) caused lesbians to be banned from a LESBIAN PROTEST MARCH ABOUT LESBIAN VISIBILITY. Wow!

It gets worse.

The male London Dyke March organizers then issued a statement informing the lesbians that the “male dykes” had engaged a “police liaison” that would arrest any lesbians who made political statements or spoke publicly against male leadership of the protest march for increasing lesbian visibility. Any lesbians who protested would be arrested and prosecuted for “discrimination” against men! Whew!

In this jackboot climate of male suppression of lesbian rights to gather, seek representation at LESBIAN events, and our right to protest the male erosion of LESBIAN VISIBILITY, under threat of ARREST, at a DYKE MARCH (!!!) it is surprising that any women showed up at all. But some did- and they risked the threat of harassment and ARREST by MALE AUTHORITIES and staged a kick-ass protest, complete with signs and informative literature for any other actual lesbians who showed up. KICK ASSSS! Great job LESBIAN WOMEN!

The following is excerpted from a related post at Sisterhood Is Powerful:

 “In hindsight, the most powerful step taken by feminists towards liberation in the 60s-80s, was a recognition of the political power of women-only spaces. It began with CR groups. Groups of women recognised that men have made our traditional place in the home and away from societal decision-making. Over these decades, women fought men’s psychological warfare games aimed at stopping them meeting together in women-only spaces. Women were called ‘man-hater’ and ‘ugly’ and ‘lesbian’ (ha!). They steadfastly continued to pursue political goals in the interests of the female class within those spaces.

It always begins and ends with our own political spaces – only there can we think, dream and plan for a future with freedom.  The concept of our own space to escape male supremacy was so successful that a whole women’s sector was built by radical (many were lesbian) feminists.

The idea that women could meet to make things better for all women was becoming so well-established that male supremacy found a way to attack, discredit and destroy it. What better way to do that than from an incredibly regressive ideology disguised as the new progressive way forward. We can’t possibly tell who is a man or who is a woman, the argument goes, (without a degrading look at those genitals down there and that’s unthinkable bigotry).  We must, therefore, stop “policing” boundaries on gender lines. We must hold lesbian marches that are open to anyone who identifies any way they like, and we cannot have meetings where we ourselves define the boundaries unless men tell us it’s ok and we’re not “bigots” for our attempts to do so. In one short generation, women-only space is under attack again. As (some liberal etc) feminists are beginning to find out, the use of queer ideology in feminist spaces is a way to silence and control all women; not just those scapegoated for naming the way gender hierarchy oppresses women for the benefit of men.

On 21 June 2014 it feels fitting to dedicate this blog post  to all the women who marched for their freedoms in 1908 in Hyde Park London, 106 years ago exactly. They believed that the right to vote would end their oppression. We now know it was barely even the beginning of our fight for liberation but it is entirely understandable that they risked so much to achieve that one main goal. It is also dedicated to UK radical lesbian feminists who cannot go on a ‘Dyke march’ around ‘visibility’ (oh the irony) in London today because men are more welcome than us and to the brave radical lesbian feminists who went anyway and demonstrated their concerns. #takebackdykemarch The two events falling on the same day is embedded in irony.”

      This may be an our radicalizing moment along with the Cotton Ceiling . Actual Dykes threatened with arrest at a DYKE MARCH by Lesbian and Female cops because they are protesting how born Female DYKES are being silenced by the male born!!! The pictures are worth 1000 words and incredibly precious. They didn’t threaten violence only signs and a presence standing up for truth to male born power which has so effectively twisted up and silenced our Dyke communities … I hope we keep this issue as alive as the Cotton Ceiling debacle in its sheer irony: Dykes standing up for the heart and soul of the Dyke March and Dyke communities being sold out to pretendbian born males. They NEVER want to be told NO and that they cannot have access to us, our DYKE selves or our Dyke bio female bodies.

  1. AreUSayingWhatUThink Says:

    GallusMag,

    I can’t even BELIEVE THIS – I feel like I’m DREAMING, it is so EVERYTHING I would have never anticipated, when I was a newbie feminist in high school, having pulled a neon pink copy of “The Feminine Mystique” off the shelf in the library (because of that neon pink cover), and read it. THANK YOU to the librarian (female) at that high school, who way back when, got Betty Friedan on the shelf of a small, working class high school. Was I the only high school girl (abused and tormented) who read it? I hope not.

    It was also in that library I read Sylvia Plath poems for the first time, and looked her up in Who’s Who of American Writers (or whatever the book was called). There I learned of her suicide in 1963. I’d never known before that moment, never thought of it – women committing suicide! How could that be? Why? My little teenaged brain just could not comprehend it AT ALL.

    I bring up Sylvia Plath because she was living in England at time of her suicide, and writing her Ariel poems (she wrote her mother about them, “I have it in me”) …Yes, I just looked it up on Wikipedia, she committed suicide at “23 Fitzroy Road, near Primrose Hill, London.”

    A little more than 50 years ago. A woman, whatever you think of her, who took SCRUPULOUS CARE with language. SCRUPULOUS, EXACTING. Words are power. Power to define reality.

    So now, WOMEN are supposed to FOREGO exercising SCRUPULOUS and EXACTING CARE in naming their experience, in naming THEMSELVES, and acting in their own best interests thereof, because there are MEN who believe it is THEIR right to define women’s experiences? Define them away?

    I can’t even believe this. I think, hopefully soon, something along the lines of SEVENTH WAVE FEMINISM will hit planet Earth, and put “the magic of words” – the power to define – back in women’s hands. That’s postmodernism in a fucking nutshell (shall I reference testicles here instead – in a fucking testicle-shell) – SILENCING WOMEN – STFU – the postmodernist credo. Which amazingly enough – is also the PREmodernist credo. Imagine that. I feel Plathian rage emanating from London. Go sisters.

    • Bev Jo Says:

      That was so beautifully said, and so is all your work, our Champion. This is being reposted all over our groups.

      I loved Sylvia Plath as a teenager too. Finally, poetry with power and sense….

      • AreUSayingWhatUThink Says:

        Thanks Bev Jo. I’m SO THANKFUL somebody’s out there with picket signs and being present. I don’t understand HOW this can happen – I mean, all the decision-making process that went into choosing a MAN for a keynote speaker. Good grief, the thought of all those women in the audience listening to that man – I get visions of evangelical Christian male preacher and his hordes of female devotees – there was an incredibly popular male yoga teacher I saw a story about, how he preyed on female students of his – the whole thing, the “optics,” as it’s put on the Rachel Maddow show – it’s like the Dyke March is all of a sudden your classic charismatic male leader with female followers, whom the charismatic male leader feels entitled to have sex with.

  3. lin Says:

    Just wondering on what legal basis they can arrest the protesters? Is there a law saying they must have a permit or anything like that? I know the UK is a lot more restrictive wrt free speech. Maybe them getting arrested would cause some media attention to this ridiculous situation and bite the organizers on the ass.

    • Pam I Says:

      Breach of the peace – if they were seen to be stirring up trouble, and refused to stop – boom. I, as an observer, did point out that there were free speech issues involved, but UK law is not the same as USian.

    Excellent post, thank you Gallus.

  9. Farmerjane Says:

    Thank you Gallus for posting this, and thank you – a thousand times, with tears of pride and hope- to the women who protested. You are bringing the guts back into feminism.

  10. Bev Jo Says:

    You are a poet really, Gallus Mag. This really is inspiring. I hope it spreads.

    In the early Seventies, late Sixties, there was so much fighting back because of oppression but also because it was fun to not just be boring and ridiculous. When will the women who support the men who caricaturize and so hate females feel like that also?

    We fight for women only space to have community, but also because it’s just fun. Same reason we march…. Same reason we party and dance….


  11. These lesbians are very brave.

    Here the metropolitan police are basically no longer hiding the fact that their purpose is to make sure women are kept in their place with the “special relationship” they have with transwomen. The British police have a history of violently attacking female protesters, (In 1910 a woman-only protest was met with police violence. Two women died as a result of the police violence, and around two hundred women were arrested.)
    And that’s not to mention the personal vendettas that trannies launch against women who dare to speak out against their dominance of women’s spaces.

    The fact that men in dresses force women to acknowledge them while keeping a straight face is a sadistic joke in itself. But men in dresses speaking *on behalf of women* , *leading* women’s groups??. Men have really upped their antse.

    • m Says:

      the disease is really upping its ante alright. clinging for dear life. but these transbian attempts of parasitic subsumption and erasure of women are a death rattle of sorts for all males, i feel.

    • morag99 Says:

      “The fact that men in dresses force women to acknowledge them while keeping a straight face is a sadistic joke in itself.”

      cherryblossomlife–yes, “while keeping a straight face.” That’s the sociopathic admixture. They are able to tell outrageous whoppers, in the full light of day, as easily as normal people tell little white lies.

  12. A Woman Says:

    Yes. Bring them down. Push them back to board rooms they crawled out of with their entitled demands and their repulsive hate of women.

  13. sayar Says:

    Lesbian definition: “A lesbian is a female homosexual; a female who experiences romantic love or sexual attraction to other females.”

    or

    “a homosexual woman”

    Definition of “woman” : “an adult human FEMALE”

    Definition of “female” : “of or denoting the sex that can bear offspring or produce eggs, distinguished biologically by the production of gametes (ova) which can be fertilized by male gametes.”

    Anyone got an idea of (non-protestor) attendance at the march? From pictures online, it doesn’t look particularly well-attended. There is a picture floating around of auntysarah with stavvers, which kind of sums up how much of a “dykes” event this would have been, as does the text of auntysarah’s speech that is also online.

    • Pam I. Says:

      I estimate 200 people max. I counted those assembled at the beginning as just under 100, and allowing for more joining en route, makes 200-odd. There was a huge (50,000) march against austerity across town , so that may have kept numbers down. As it was kept on the pavement/sidewalk, it didn’t make much of an impact. All banners and placards (except the above) were made by the march people, so nothing to show support from any other organisations.

  17. fwancis Says:

    Apparently, not only does no one have a right to be “unpleasant” towards trans, but it is in fact illegal.

  19. Random Radfem Says:

    Awwww- a celebration of sisterhood amongst men, disturbed by unruly females!! Kudos! Thank you thank you thank you for putting this on and bringing awareness to how these dicks are bulldozing women’s spaces everywhere. It’s a dyke march, not a dick march- that is pretty much every other event and these guy’s can celebrate their pretenbianism anywhere else. Heterosexual males do need a space for celebrate their pretend lesbianism, but this isn’t the space. Deeply offensive and infuriating. What in the world could this greasy, misogynistic castrated male pig have to speak about at a dyke march? Nothing, of course! Actual lesbians will be arrested on site! Lol!! I wish this was parody!!

  20. GallusMag Says:

    Facebook comment from one of the male Dyke March organizers:

    Natalie Jane Taylor
    Lesbians are obviously welcome and DML has tried to facilitate this discussion in the most constructive way so that people can air their grievances about the speaker mentioned throughout this thread so they are heard. people’s opinions matter. Dyke visibility at DML includes this type of dialogue. The aim is to stop this cycle of hatred by facilitating this kind of discussion. I can understand a lot of the comments about ”patriarchy” and other things similarly mentioned. The issue about the speaker is obviously one that will not see rest for sometime. Moving aside from that, the amount of transphobic hatred has been outrageous. patriarchal oppression doesn’t just enforce negative female stereotypes but male stereotypes as well. That there is no other way to be other than *insert premise* which is what you’re all doing when you judge anyone by an outdated stencil. trans women on her birth and the struggle to fight through Male ego which states very often ” that those women are not women but just faggots in dresses” This is EXACTLY the stereo type you as women are actually upholding. You deny trans womens feminity in favour of a patriarchal ”fuck off” that they are just MEN and are MEN because thats what MEN are because I said so. etc. You can see the fundamental irony here I hope of you trying to smash patriarchy, yet at the same time uphold all of it’s negative stereotypes about what a man or woman is, and even what a lesbian DYKE woman is. You do not have the deciding rule on what consitutues a DYKE just because you are one. YOU have the right to define yourself within your body and who you chose to love and have sex with.(IF you’re lucky enough to be able to chose who you love or have sex with) Every person is different, every persons life is different. What you’re all doing is upholding generalisations about what a WOMAN and well as what a MAN should be. Based on the fact you have a vagina and nothing more. That sounds more like a casting couch of a porn movie than patriarchal deconstruction/ ”Oh you have a vagina YOU IN THE MOVIE!” Which a lot of trans men would be dismayed to hear. Buck Angel is Not a Dyke, but he very much has a vagina. You’re hearts might be in the right place as regards to breaking negative images of women around the world. Fuck stereotypical stereotypes of women. Fuck stereo types in General. But the way in which you do it is so much like a manager at the playboy club who sniffs for entry in. They only let the REAL vaginas dance. THAT’S PATRIARCHY. Basing your importance around the genitals you were chanced to be born with is a patriarchal mould of how a women is supposed to value and define themselves. That their vaginas are all that a they are worth, that a woman is worth, and nothing else. It’s disgusting. Stop. I’m not dismissing the love of vaginas as being important to the attraction of gay women it’s such a small part of the whole person. There is so much more to being in Love that that, or really it’s just meaningless sex without emotion. Which, again. Kind of a Male ego patriarchal mould.. let people define themselves, which is what Dyke march is about. let women, define themselves. NOT force an image of what they THINK a women/lesbian/DYKE should look like feel like or act like. And what of women and glamour models in the Porn or sexual working trades? Are they enemies as well of the negative images that men and male egos impose because they work so hard to please the men to become that image of what men want? or do they get a pass. None of that is ok. None of it. Define who you are within yourself. that’s it. to NOT let others in any way dictate how a person looks/acts/feels/identifies. And I want to emphasize that the key note speaker and your problem with them is something that really defines a larger argument on how PEOPLE in general can be very rude and abusive. As part of the organizing team on the day, no form of hate speech or aggression will be tolerated. from anyone. I love that you’ve been so expressive and open and tried to push boundaries of what I understand is a huge issues for you. It’s been fantastic for me to read at times that there are very passionate people who stand up against hateful speech and hopefully, DML has been able to be a place where you can talk( Ground rules are still enforced though of course). I Hope you do come. But Bring no overt acts of hate. Bring yourself, bring your power and rage and anger. We march past playboy gentlemen’s club that’s a great place to unload that rage….

      Why do mentally ill men get a pass? Well if George Bush and Dick Cheney, who might reasonably be considered OUT OF THEIR FUCKING MINDS, get a pass (I don’t see them in jail for their documented all over the place war crimes) – if George Bush and Dick Cheney get a pass on invading a country, why shouldn’t a few men-in-dresses get to invade a Dyke March? I mean, c’mon. What’s a few boundaries here or there? Uh-oh, I’m making a claim as to a systemic tendency – psychological tests have proven, thinking “systemically” is a male trait, not female! Uh-oh!

      • Sula Says:

        “Define who you are within yourself”??? Christ we’ve all been SO stupid! All we needed to do is tweak the definitions, stop being so cliched and boring and centuries of oppression would never had needed to happen! Jeez…we’ve only got ourselves to blame.

        Whilst I’m here, perhaps the fact that there was a 50,000 strong march (not reported by mainstream media) against public sector cuts and austerity going on in London at the same time meant that all the great women who are out there working to help disadvantaged women and children in our communities, in refuges, schools, care homes, hospitals etc, might not have also been able to protest at the Dyke march as well: on a different day there would have been more radical women free to join forces and protest at ‘dyke’ march.

What a load of typical male bullshit. Pornsickness, condescension, trying to make it about people and not men, denying women’s right to define their reality…is there a bingo for this?

        “Also is it me or is this whole text accusing lesbians of being (patriarchal) men, (patriarchally) masculine and upholding patriarchy if they try to assert themselves in any way?”

        Sounds like it to me!

        We have the daft position that you are only allowed to name yourself, and NOT police others who then claim they are also ‘like’ you (if X says they are X then they ARE X)…….except this is then followed by the usual reversal that the above does not apply to trans, in that THEY are allowed to call anyone else whatever they like (i.e. never really trans if someone detransitions). Given that the trans usually espousing this nonsense are male, it just reduces to a particular group of men claiming the right to name everything, and telling the women (yet again) to shut the fuck up and stop doing stuff wrong……..

        Yeah, notice also that hate speech only counts as hate speech when it’s women or dykes doing it, when it comes from Mr Brown or his ilk, it’s just justifiable anger at our stupidity and refusal to shut the fuck up — see, OUR fault yet again when the nice man becomes violent of threatening because us silly women provoked him…………………….

  23. OT but interesting: here’s a UN document about how access to water is a human right. Here’s a quote from paragraph 2:

    “Women will not use sanitation facilities which are not maintained or are not sex segregated.”

    So, the UN is stating that lack of access to sex segregated restrooms is a human rights violation.

    • kesher Says:

      Al Jazeera had a really phenomenal (in terms of well researched and well written) article on the mistreatment of women in India. A big issue is that many Indian women lack access to bathroom facilities, necessitating them relieving themselves in an isolated location in public, where they run a very high risk of rape.

      It’s really telling, to me, just how misogynistic the transcult is that they so quickly dismiss how vital sex-segregated facilities are for women’s well-being (while demanding that they deserve use of our facilities, of course).

        “It’s really telling, to me, just how misogynistic the transcult is that they so quickly dismiss how vital sex-segregated facilities are for women’s well-being (while demanding that they deserve use of our facilities, of course).”

        Yes. It’s naked misogyny. And they do more than dismiss the importance of sex-segregated facilities. When we get into this conversation with “trans women” we soon find that they find our discomfort and fear the absolute height of hilarity. “Oh, I see,” they’ll say, “you’re just afraid of penises! Ha ha!”

        But their (supposed) terror of other men in the men’s room is a deadly serious business. So serious, that girls and women have been ordered to accommodate male transgenderists without a single peep.

      • kesher Says:

        And then it so frequently devolves into typical male insults like “no one wants to see you naked” or the ever classy “you’re too ugly to rape”.

        I’m not normally one to dictate gendered behavior from women, but I can’t help thinking that if these guys want to be regarded and treated as women, they would do well to learn how to behave like women and not men.

        I’m not sure if this is the same article you mentioned, but I recently read about how a group of Indian feminists successfully changed the language of India’s rape laws.They went from using gender neutral terms to an acknowledgment of rape as a form of sex based oppression of women by. The response from MRAs and transactivists alike was that those mean Indian feminists don’t care about male victims and the evil cabal of radical feminists in the US will soon make it illegal for a man to look at a woman. *headdesk*

        It never ceases to amaze me that men cannot stand any mild form of discomfort whatsoever (re the bathrooms). You want to live like a real woman? Do what I and many of my friends have to do: use the buddy system when using a public toilet, or if you really feel unsafe, hold it til you get home.

      • Choco Says:

        “When we get into this conversation with “trans women” we soon find that they find our discomfort and fear the absolute height of hilarity. “Oh, I see,” they’ll say, “you’re just afraid of penises! Ha ha!”

        This is such a good point. They usually add some form of “You’re just damaged, not everyone has an unhealthy relationship to nudity and sex that you do.” That’s what was so infuriating about the Colleen Francis debacle in libfem comment sections. They tried to make it seem like it was feminists blowing it out of proportion (ie projecting their prudishness onto sexually liberated teenagers) , when it was the girls themselves saying they felt uncomfortable with a grown man in the locker room with them.

      • morag99 Says:

        Yes, Choco, women’s desire for privacy, and our fear of sexual assault, is–according to these über-misogynists–sexually uptight and hilarious. These unoriginal men, who tell us we should loosen up, can’t even come up with new ways verbally assault women. Only ugly prudes fear rape, says the trans cult. But they don’t, of course, apply these axioms to themselves.

        kesher–I agree. Their behaviour, the hateful and horrid things they say, show that they are as far away from being women as they can possibly be. Not just biologically, but socially, emotionally, psychologically. Boobs and asses can be faked, but the social forces which circumscribe the lives of girls and women, and which shape the female psyche, cannot be faked.

        Nothing, nothing about them is womanly.

        I wish I could give you advice.. but I typically make no effort to hide it while I’m changing or showering. Granted, I don’t flaunt it, but I do get a kick out of the shock value it provides.

        [–]rileyk 19 points 1 day ago*
        Jesus, I hope you’re trolling.
        Edit: nope, you’re not. Please, please reconsider your actions, as get a thrill from flaunting your self described “huge cock” (from comment history) to other women in the dressing room is really, really uncool. Super uncool. Like throwing other transpeople under the bus uncool. I rarely play the role of ethics police, but fuck, that’s like the worst thing I’ve heard a transperson say in a long time, and I’m fucking glad there’s no radfems up in here to go “seeeee! we told you!”

        Of course he gets a kick out of it.

        Men who enjoy exposing themselves know that women, and especially girls, are afraid of being forced to look at men’s penises. This is the whole point–the harm and humiliation the man can cause her, and what the penis represents to her.

        When I was a little girl (around 11 and 12) there was a rash of what they called (to minimize the problem) “flashers” in my neighbourhood. These disgusting, predatory men hung around the schoolyard in their cars and watched for groups of girls to follow up the side streets. No kidding, I lost track of how many times they did this to us. But the worst time was when one of them found me walking home alone, and when I ran away from him while he masturbated in front of me–my heart pounding, in mortal terror–he was LAUGHING. Loud. He wanted me to know that he was laughing.

        Our fear of rape/murder and of psychological violation is just hilarious to them. “Transwomen,” being men, are no different. It’s the same kind of evil. An evil that’s peculiar to males. But they have more power now than ever before to practice their paraphilia in public and to find victims.


      • “I’m fucking glad there’s no radfems up in here to go “seeeee! we told you!””

        A man gets all excited that he shocks women when he’s waving his cock about and that’s bad because it’s “Like throwing trans people under a bus uncool”

        Women truly do not exist to them.


      • And the fake “outrage” irritates me more than the guy who’s honest about what he’s doing showering with women.

        Men like the “outraged” riley are the worst mindfuck of all because they lull you into a false sense of security and into believing there might be some reasonableness to be had among these people. They playing games with women. It’s a mind fuck and today it’s riley’s turn to be good cop.

      • Ashland Avenue Says:

        Gallus, I’m glad you caught this. Now that perv poster “SynisterStarlite” (the dude who enjoys the shock value of his dick), has edited his post to include the following:

        “I don’t flaunt it and I always educate. I don’t give them fuel. I never go out of my way to make someone uncomfortable. The most I do in the locker room is walk from the locker itself to the shower. Its not like I’m helicopter dicking my way around the fucking room. I have respect for others’ consent and personal space and would never violate that sanctity. I’m rather modest offline but I do thrive off of controversy but I never attempt to make someone feel uncomfortable. I am very consent oriented in my day to day life, by which I mean that I wouldn’t ever push a kink or anything out of the typical norm on anyone without expressed verbal consent. I assure you I have done nothing to damage the cis perspective on our issues. If anything I’ve done a lot of good in my local area. I contribute to the local LGBT community A LOT at support groups and school clubs. I moved to this extremely trans*positive city for a reason. I understand where my original post could come across as pretentious and damaging, I’m sorry that I worded it that way. However, with this drama set to the side, I would really like to point out that I have a serious problem with ANYONE telling me how to behave under any circumstance. I appreciate your input, but you guys blew up at me for mis-reading what I stated. I appreciate your efforts, all of you, I really do. But please direct them at someone that is actually causing legitimate damage to the community.”

        Oh, poor poor me! My fellow trannies got mad at me for doing exactly what real women are worried about happening! B-but I educate! I tell the women alllll about my wang! A-and I contribute to the community by going to support groups (and talking about myself nonstop)! A-and I moved to this city just so I could show off my wang, my precious wang!

So that wee creep who dressed up like a little girl and shat in his pants for money from other creepy dudes, was disturbed by this dude flopping his dong around in the women’s showers?! That dude?? Lololol! You are correct, GM, you can’t make this up- it would be hard to create fiction that is more unbelievable than the fictions they expect women to play along with.

        Look at this shithead’s responses- he is only trying to educate women! Educate about what exactly? That dicks exist? Yeah, taking a shower at the gym is not about meeting a basic sanity need, but an opportunity for this nasty prick to educate women with his dick! While that may sound like something a sex offender would say, check your cisscum priv, bitches, because this is a laydee shlong and you should appreciate the free life lesson!

        In a glistening diarrhea sea of disgusting male behavior, this guy really shines. In the handful of posts I clicked on before feeling queasy (see pic/ please don’t), he posts he is a new “mom” but still finds the time to post selfies on Monster Cocks (it’s gross- http://i.imgur.com/Lc0zcHX.jpg) and discuss ejaculating into his wife and other partners from a fetish site. This self-proclaimed new “mom” certainly has a rich sex/fantasy life, and that is really what women’s lib is all about, right? Women’s emancipation from gender roles? Economic equality? The end of sexual exploitation and violence? Nooope- it is really about opening new worlds of expression for a new crop of degrading, abusive, misogynistic man pigs like this new “mom”! He certainly has a lot more to focus on than boring baby stuff! You go girl- everyone is totes jealz that you have the monster-est cock out of all the “moms” in da showers are are not afraid to educate with it!

      • kesher Says:

        Crap like this is what I legitimately worry about regarding entry of transwomen into women’s spaces. Predators and pervs so frequently use plausible deniability when preying on girls and women, and society is very willing to take their word on that and dismissing girls’/women’s complaints as hysteria. If intact males are to be allowed to use women’s locker rooms, they should be required by law to cover their wangs when in the presence of girls and women. But that offends their precious genderfeels, so I won’t hold my breath on that one.

    • Adrian Says:

      It’s a very big problem in the rural parts of some countries where there are no bathrooms at all and no reasonably private places segregated off in the bush, either, for kids to use during the school day.

      What happens is girls quit going to school during their periods, and that often means they quit going at all soon after because they’ve missed enough time they can’t keep up – this in addition to the other usual pressures that often pull girls out of school. That same UN group has written about that specific slice of the problem too.

      • BadDyke Says:

        This BBC news story is good as well and makes the SAME points. Safety & access to education for women and girls in India, and centred on their SEX and biology, not mythical gender.

        http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-28039513

        I’ll admit, I was woefully ignorant on this issue. I did not realise the link to the recently reported rapes and murders.


    • I’ve had this argument with the Twittidiots.

      Why is it that transwomen are so totally NOT safe in the bathroom with men but women are safe in the bathroom with transwomen?

      We get accused of misandry and transphobia for pointing out males hurt females and we need a safe space away from their shit.

      How come MRA’s don’t even point out that trans are being phobic towards them as men? (Because MRA’s don’t give a fuck about men’s rights, it’s about squashing women and their hard earned gains at being recognised as people)

      Why are there never cries of “Not all men…” about how not all men are going to beat up trans or rape them or hurt them? Why aren’t they welcoming their brothers into the men’s room and away from those nasty feminists?

      Why do trans never point out that they should feel safe in the men’s room? Or champion safety in the men’s room for their FtT comrades? (See explanation above).

      In fact, most MtT shit on the FtT for going into the ladies room because they feel unsafe in the men’s. Great work there dudes!

      ————–

      There is no news reports that I (or even Gallus with her kick arse detective skills) have been able to find that shows a MtT getting beaten in a male restroom.

      Tonnes of posts of MtT (or men in dresses) going into the ladies to put cameras/expose themselves/masturbate.

      Tonnes of posts about rape and assault of women in restrooms.

      Tonnes of posts about women outside the “Western” world not having access to restrooms and that crippling their ability to engage in society.

      Even a few news articles showing women telling MtT to GET THE FUCK OUT of our restroom/changing room spaces and responding with justifiable anger at the intrusion.

      The male bathroom is the safest place for these dudes.

      They usually get “clocked” because they don’t pass (autogynephiles) and no dude is going to mess with those 6′ ft + hulking “ladies” who have probably killed people in the military.

      • kesher Says:

        Most hate crimes against gender non-conforming males I’ve heard of involve attacks in public spaces (such as the street, not bathrooms) against gay men or drag queens. At least within my liberal enclave, unprovoked stranger attacks against transpeople are non-existent. It almost seems like the homophobes don’t really know what to make of an MTF, so they largely leave them alone. A gender non-conforming man though, he is a threat. A threat that needs to be put down.

      • kesher Says:

        I also can’t help wondering whether “lesbian” MTFs also get a pass for being perceived as straight men.

    It seems to me that the backlash to this entryism should involve hearty ridicule of the fact that “Dyke March” is now code for “everyone but actual lesbians”.

    A gay male heading the NY march board, a bisexual male keynote speaker in London…it just amazes me that these showboating assholes can’t leave a little lesbian march alone. Well, weak movements go after low-hanging fruit, so it does make sense for them to go after radfems and lesbians who don’t have a lot of power. Trans’ triumphalism over this event is laughable, because sooner or later you run out of low-hanging fruit.

    They only managed 100 – 200 people? My guess is that over the next few years Radfem conferences may have a better turnout than so-called “Dyke Marches”.

    “They only managed 100 – 200 people?” If that is true, that is a ridiculously low figure. We managed loads more than that (or it certainly SOUNDED like way more than that!) back in the old days of lesbian strength marches. Dyke marches that aren’t just for dykes but any ole supporters, and dyke marches than have men as keynote speakers………

    …..THIS is where the trans ideology leads to! If they keep at this, you’ll have Dyke Marches where more lesbians are protesting against it than actually attending it!

  31. sharonredwood Says:

    Substitute black or Native American for DYKE and see how it sounds. Henceforth, white males will define what African American, Native or First Nation etc. is. So, if white people start calling themselves Native American, they can own a casino.

    “You do not have the deciding rule on what consitutues a DYKE just because you are one. YOU have the right to define yourself within your body …”

    Yes, women do have the right to define ourselves based on our own experiences, and we have a right to set boundaries. All oppressed groups of persons have a right to autonomy and to define themselves as they see fit.

    “What you’re all doing is upholding generalisations about what a WOMAN and well as what a MAN should be. Based on the fact you have a vagina and nothing more.”

    It’s the whole package and thousands of years of misogyny. A vagina is just one organ that is part of the entire female reproductive system. Males do not have female reproductive systems. It’s just not about actual biological differences which impact women’s lives from the time they are born. It’s male socialization, and when Mr. Brown gets upset and tells uppity women he doesn’t like to “SUCK MY FORMALDEHIDE PICKLED BALLS”, it should be clear to any rational person that Mr. Brown still retains a sense of male entitlement in which he feels entitled to scold and berate women who upset his enraged male ego. When their male egos are threatened, their true nature comes out.

    “Define who you are within yourself. that’s it.”

    WTF does this sentence mean?

    “As part of the organizing team on the day, no form of hate speech or aggression will be tolerated. from anyone….It’s been fantastic for me to read at times that there are very passionate people who stand up against hateful speech and hopefully”.

    We know which direction the hate speech is coming from, and below is a tiny sample of hate speech. Transgender activists don’t give a rat’s ass about hate speech and death and rape threats against women. It’s only “hate speech” when it’s coming from women.

    http://radfemsrespond.wordpress.com/recent-anti-feminist-hate-speech/

    This is nothing new and has been going on for thousands of years. Men don’t like being told no, and can’t stand it when they aren’t the center of attention. These pompous men won’t tolerate women who don’t kowtow to their demands. It’s just the same old same old cloaked in postmodern, neoliberal wrapping.

      Mind if I rant a bit?

      Welp, got called a TERF for the first time, guess all the death threats linked above now officially apply to me as well. Must admit I am still alternately fuming, sulking, and feeling somehow horribly guilty (no one likes to be treated as a bigot). Express concern about them trying to bully lesbians into being attracted to penis, point out reproductive biology is still a real thing, and a (non-trans) woman you were getting on with just fine seconds before, can do a 180 and decide you’re a terrible person. Didn’t even have the guts to message it to me directly, no, goes and stabs me and the rest of us in the back by posting publicly about her shock at accidentally talking to the nasty TERF (I’m probs fortunate I didn’t get sent personalised death threats of my very own to treasure). Silenced by being frozen out, no dialogue permitted (this strategy has worked well for trans, but other groups aren’t able to get enough cooperation from others for it to work). Bloody LibFems, what on Earth is in it for them?

      Why is it too much to want things to make sense, is this just too difficult for some people to manage? Exactly as you say, Guls, people often don’t seem to think critically, I’m not sure if they even want to. Erika has a point about subliterate, as well – issues with education may be part of the problem here, why the message just isn’t getting through. Not sure if they know what they’re saying doesn’t make sense, or they just don’t care, but as for their female supporters… Feels like talking to a brick wall who just sticks to the current party line. I can’t deal with not being allowed to ask any questions. I don’t even care if transwomen DO turn out to somehow have a female brain (which would also mean mine wasn’t), I just want the truth. Someone who wasn’t afraid of the truth would permit questions to be asked, surely?

      Upset rant over, haha. I’m not sure why I’m surprised, I knew what it was like already, but the contrast between those brave lesbian sisters, and the ever-obedient LibFem, and the sheer irony of being asked to pretend reproductive biology is irrelevant while curled up in a miserable ball of cramps, really brought it all home somehow. No matter what they do, blood and sisterhood will remain real things, unlike males’ pretending.

  35. Lizzy Shaw Says:

    I wish this was satire because it sounds like a joke. Kudos to the brave lesbians who stood up to these asshole pretendbians. Honestly, even most straight people I know would consider it in bad taste for a frat boy to claim to be a lesbian, but if said frat boy feels like a woman inside (because women are figments of men’s imaginations) then it’s okay.

    The fact that they threatened to have real lesbians arrested just kills me. It doesn’t get much more homophobic than that. Everyone has been hooked on this idea that the T is the most oppressed (maybe because so many of them threaten suicide or self-harm if you don’t play along with their make-believe, idk) but as we can see that’s clearly a load of crap.

    My heartfelt thanks to the women who protested this sham of a lesbian march. I wish I could have afforded the eye-watering train fare to join you.

    This nonsense is of course continuing to be dragged out by Mr Brown as one of the protestors was Dr Julia Long, a lecturer at Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge, and of course by saying mean things about a dude she is in breach of Mr Brown’s feel- I mean, uh, her employment contract- and thus he is planning to harass the university to have her fired.

    Yes, this man with an intact dick thinks he passes as female while nude (!!!).

    In other ‘creepy dudes’ news, this is a picture that was recently posted on Project Unbreakable, which is meant to be a healing resource for survivors of sexual assault:

    Like…is there a 95% likelihood that this guy is getting off on this? Am I paranoid? I don’t mind that male survivors submit pictures, obviously, but the mention of forced feminization in this guy’s sign is seriously disturbing. It’s such a porn trope…

      It’s a tired trope, and he’s a vile POS for using that meme to get his dick hard. The other guy is a delusional asshole. Delusional for obvious reasons, and asshole for waving his dick around a women’s locker room to satisfy his needs. Fucking assHOLE.

    Here in Pittsburgh, the Dyke March no longer exists. Its the Dyke and Trans March, and it’s organized by–a trans man. I critiqued this at my blog, and got attacked by the Pittsburgh leaders. Notice that at Huff Post, they are now real defensive about it. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/sue-kerr/pittsburgh-dyke-trans-march_b_5541382.html?utm_hp_ref=gay-voices

    And interesting how at the beginning, they were all righteous about organizing the dyke march because lesbians from the region (SW Pennsylvania, West Virginia, etc.) were shut out of the leadership of Pittsburgh Pride and other LGBT organizations around here. They marveled at the distances dykes traveled to the first March. And since the leadership is now a trans man and the march is called the Dyke and Trans March, they admit that the numbers of dykes attending is now down. Can’t tell me no one could see the old pattern reasserting itself here. But then I have heard that our last remaining lesbian bar (Cattivo) was taken over by trans people, mostly trans women, so it’s just the same old same old. I just get tired of cringing self-hating lesbians who apologize for breathing, like the author of the Huff Po piece.
