Not only will I be back soon THANKS TO YOU!!!!!!!❤❤❤ XOXOX
But I will be back with an AWESOME computer FAR BETTER than what I’ve been using FOR YEARS!!!!!11!!!!!!!!!!!!
I’m going to cut this short because I am almost crying* over this.
Thanks to you there will be an extreme upgrade in services rendered by me. #KICKASS
I’ve been working under remarkably constricting technology since my original computer was deceased two years ago. I won’t bore you. But that is ALL OVER NOW (or will be in the next few weeks as I get things sorted).
Not only will this blog reflect an increase in quality (at least technically, har har) but your generosity has provided me with potential opportunities to pursue other unrelated projects via this computer which may increase my quality of life.
To those who contributed:
I CAN’T THANK YOU ENOUGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Seriously, I don’t know what to say, except THANK YOU.
You have saved this blog, made me feel MUSHY, and opened up a world of opportunity for me via the new KICK ASS OMGGGGG! computer.
*with happiness and woo woo if that isn’t clear!
Open letter to the National Post: resistance to gender identity laws is about much more than political correctness
October 8, 2016
Recent articles (here and here) in the National Post have exposed a dispute surrounding gender identity taking place at U of T, one of many universities trying to navigate this polarizing issue. It’s critical that the public be informed that there’s more at stake than just transgender rights and freedom of expression.
Gender identity is indeed, as Jordan Peterson says, philosophically incoherent and scientifically unfounded. It’s also true that forcing others to participate in affirming one’s self-perception is a violation of individual autonomy. The more pressing concern, however, is not political correctness but rather that gender identity has created a dangerous landscape of competing rights that adversely impacts females. As such, dissension shouldn’t be monopolized by people who aren’t invested or interested in women’s rights.

The following are re-posts of the writing of black transwoman Jaqueline Andrews. Andrews was a contributor to the “Gender Apostates’ website. Gender Apostates was a project undertaken by heterosexual white women “Sass” and Rebecca Reilly Cooper in support of the medicalization of “transgender women”. Their intention was to draw a distinction between males who merely self-define as “female” and males who are willing to undergo medical and surgical procedures to reduce their reproductive anatomy, which they proposed granted more authenticity to their ‘identities’. Site co-author was Miranda Yardley. Male contributors included Aoife Assumpta Hart, Jaqueline Andrews, and others.
Andrews’ work was deleted from Gender Apostates and he was erased as a contributor. I reprint the works that can be recovered here. Andrews last work ‘A Misogynist is a Misogynist by Any Other Name’ renounced the actions of co-contributor Aoife Assumpta Hart, and the concept of “gender critical transwomen’ that the site promoted.
Essays are reprinted because Jaqueline wanted to be heard and NOT erased. GenderTrender objects to the erasure of Jaqueline Andrews after his death by Gender Apostates.
Inquiries to Gender Apostates co-owner Miranda Yardley about the reasoning behind erasing all of Andrews’ work after his death were not responded to at the time of this post.
UPDATE/CORRECTION: Miranda Yardley claimed in a tweet that Andrew’s removed his own essays. Apparently Jaqueline Andrews had archived his own work on a WordPress site in the weeks before his death (see discussion in comments). That site is here:
