Baby Dove: Real Moms

Equal opportunity for girls in high school sports strips boys of their humanity, says Hartford Courant opinion editor Carolyn Lumsden, in a Sunday Editorial titled ‘Humanity At Cromwell High’

Humanity is reserved for boys, not girls, and acceptance of this notion is what female student athletes need to do in the case of Andraya Yearwood, a fifteen year old boy who prefers to win against girls than compete against other males on an even playing field.

Lumsden goes on to define separate but equal sports teams for boys and girls as a form of sex-based segregation comparable to racial segregation and the history of exclusion of disabled students from equal access prior to the enactment of the Americans with Disabilities Act.

What matters is not that female students have a right to compete, but that the feelings of male students are much more important. Prioritizing male feelings over opportunities for women and girls is the definition of a humane society, Lumsden writes.

From the EPATH Conference website

The Second Biennial conference of the European Professional Association for Transgender Health (EPATH) has issued a last minute “code of conduct” as it prepares to deal with stalking, harassment, threats, and abuse of presenters from attendees following the activist hijacking of the USPATH conference earlier this year. The EPATH and USPATH conferences are regional events sponsored by the World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH), a medical lobbying group comprised of individuals who make a living off the medicalization of sex-roles among individuals that identify as transgender.

The Code of Conduct issued for the April 6- 8th EPATH conference, being held in popular medical tourism hotbed of Belgrade, Serbia, reads as follows:

 

CODE OF CONDUCT

This year, in line with good governance arrangements, all attendees, speakers, sponsors and volunteers at the 2nd biennial EPATH conference are required to agree with the following code of conduct. We expect cooperation from all participants to help ensure a safe environment for everybody.

The 2nd biennial EPATH conference takes place in a friendly environment where everyone should feel welcome, safe and comfortable to share ideas and engage in open discussion without threat of intimidation or public humiliation.

We expect all conference participants to be respectful in person and online towards other delegates, speakers, organisers, staff and volunteers.

We expect all conference participants to behave and to use language that is respectful, non-pathologising and consistent with human rights standards, taking into account its shifting and complex contextual and cultural character. Ultimately this caution applies equally to transgender health and all other formal and informal settings in which human interaction takes place. Please refer to our Language Policy.

We are committed to providing a harassment-free conference and training experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion.  Harassment of participants, speakers, staff or volunteers in any form will not be tolerated.

Harassment includes offensive verbal comments, and other forms of using disrespectful and pathologising language inconsistent with human rights standards, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing, photography or recording without explicit consent, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention. Conference participants asked to stop any harassing behaviour are expected to comply immediately.

These policies apply in every space at the venue related to conference, and to all participants in every role.

If a participant engages in harassing behaviour, EPATH may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the conference with no refund.

If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of conference staff immediately. Timo Nieder of the EPATH board and Guy Bronselaer, onsite manager, are available as a first point of contact: +32 486 688 579. Conference staff can be identified, as they’ll be wearing branded clothing and/or badges.

We will be happy to assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the event, for example by providing escorts. Contacting police should be the last resource if this is required.

We expect conference participants to follow these rules at all event venues and related social events.

We trust that this code of conduct mirrors the views of the vast majority of our participants.

TPATH (Transgender Professional Organization for Transgender Health), an organization comprised of transgender medical activist members of WPATH, has issued an “expression of concern” about the code of conduct. They communicated their “alarm” that the code “might be used to curb the freedom of all participants to communicate the harm caused by certain presenters and methodologies. such as by filming for documentation or acts of protest like speeches and silent picketing. These methods, steeped as they are in the tradition of WPATH and history, may indeed be “disruptive”, but any “public humiliation” experienced by the recipients might better be attributed to their own failure to respond to more ‘reasonable’ dialogue over the years and decades that preceded these actions.”

The male imperative to insert the bepenised population into women’s restrooms, along with every other women’s space (changing rooms, sports programs, penal institutions, homeless shelters, reproductive health centers, lesbian events) is the “civil rights issue of our time”, apparently, because such carve-outs for women in public life cruelly oppress and dehumanize penis-owners (by excluding them and hurting their feelings) all because of a misunderstood little millennia of institutionalized sexual violence and terrorism against females by males, which has resulted in the offensive and erroneous profiling of males as dangerous, when they simply insist that women have the decency to pretend that such a campaign is not ongoing and that we implement no strategy to defend ourselves.

Declaring female turf: space that women can freely occupy, troubles the tradition that female human beings are themselves ground, the substrate that exists for males to trod upon.

This cruel and baseless female affront to male humanity (and their very existence) played out genocidally (if male egos were the definition of humanity and hurting them were murder) in a comedically humorous fashion when a female human being complained publicly about the impact of a UK theatre’s “Gender Neutral” restroom policy. The horror. Oh, the horror.

The Barbican Centre is a London multiplex of culture: hosting musical, theatrical, art and cinematic product. “The largest of its kind in Europe”.

A few months ago, the Barbican realized that having restrooms for women were offensive to male patrons and imposed on male rights to access all areas. “Civil rights issue of our time” and all. Although the number of female restrooms were already substandard and inadequate, as evidenced by the number of women forced to wait in line, the Centre made a decision to be on the right side of history. They put signs up on the cinema restrooms declaring the male restroom “Gender Neutral. Urinals.” And the female restroom “Gender Neutral. Stalls.” What else could they do? Good progressives must make a stand against the oppression caused by female individuals and their crazy misandrist demands for special accommodations.

Well gosh. Who on earth could have predicted that for some inexplicable reason, women continued not using the male urinals? And that men took over the female restroom? And that men now dominated both the formerly female and male restrooms? Crazy.

This apparently went on for months, with women doing what women are supposed to do: keep their mouths shut and abide. For the Gender Neutral folks (special souls!), For the better good! For the Civil Rights Movement Of Our Time! Hold your piss ladies! Your civic duty!

It finally went sour when a single woman- BBC journalist Samira Ahmed, 2009 Stonewall Broadcast of The Year Award winner for her reports on corrective rape of lesbians in South Africa, announced that the emperor had no clothes, when she posted seven tweets over three hours [https://twitter.com/SamiraAhmedUK/status/849338626202886144] that read as follows:

 

These sensible and moderate complaints resulted in three media reports at the time of publication:

  1. The Times UK reported that Ahmed “launched a tirade” and went on to speculate that her tweets “were likely to refer to the debate over the use of women’s lavatories by transgender people”. Because god. Everyone is starved to hear “bullshit!” called on “trans”. Read their coverage here:

2. Benjamin Butterworth at Pink News titled his piece on Ahmed’s seven tweets:

‘BBC News Host Has Three Hour Rant At Venue’s Gender Neutral Toilets’.

The bolded portions below have since been deleted.

By Benjamin Butterworth A Radio 4 presenter has lashed out at gender neutral toilets introduced at a popular London performance venue.

Samira Ahmed, presenter of BBC shows Front Row and Newswatch, launched into an angry Twitter attack after the Barbican changed its toilet signs.

She wrote: “So dear Barbican Centre bosses, listen to your customers. “Women [have enough] trouble with queues without you imposing your politics.

“Or just turn the gents into gender-neutral loos. There’s never such a queue there and you know it. Thank you.”

The angry rant, which lasted almost three hours, is likely to exasperate the debate over the use of women’s lavatories by transgender people.

She complained that one of the bathrooms was “full of men”, writing: “Women’s loo labelled ‘gender neutral’ so full of men who also have a ‘urinal’ to themselves. Totally ridiculous.”

Ahmed went on: “Give us back women’s loos for all women.

“Why do women lose our space to men!? All women can use ladies loos. This isn’t the USA.”

Donald Trump recently overturned a rule designed to protect transgender young people, allowing them to use the bathroom they identify with.

The Barbican has since responded to her complaints, writing online: “We introduced the gender-neutral toilets in part of the centre as part of our commitment to welcoming all and creating a supportive and tolerant space,” a spokesman for the centre said.

“We welcome all your feedback about the new system as we look to ensure an outstanding audience experience for all.”

Rebecca Stinson, head of trans inclusion at Stonewall, told The Times: “It’s really encouraging that more businesses want to help trans people feel safe and welcome.

“However, before making this move, businesses must research the best way to make a space fully inclusive and communicate the importance of inclusion clearly with staff.

“Other easy steps include . . . ensuring that trans people know they are welcome to use the facilities they find most appropriate.”

PinkNews has contacted the BBC for comment.

The online rants comes [sic] after another Radio 4 presenter, Dame Jenni Murray, was widely condemned by trans activists for writing the trans women are not “real women”.

The Woman’s Hour host and feminist wrote in the Sunday Times Magazine that trans women can never be “real women” because they could experience male privilege before they transition.

The BBC failed to discipline the veteran broadcaster, but issued a statement saying: “Jenni Murray is a freelance journalist and these were her own views, however we have reminded her that presenters should remain impartial on controversial topics covered by their BBC programmes.”

She goes on to criticise comments made by trans broadcaster India Willoughby, who after becoming the first trans woman to co-host Loose Women, appeared on Woman’s Hour in December.”

Benjamin Butterworth’s Pink News Report was edited hours later. He retitled his post. He removed his falsified claim characterizing seven tweets as a “three-hour rant”, and the phrase “lashing out” and added a sentence calling the brutal corrective rape against lesbians in South Africa as “so-called corrective rape”. HOLY SHIT. Changes in Bold:

BBC News host tweets for three hours about venue’s gender neutral toilets

A BBC News presenter has posted a series of tweets about gender neutral toilets introduced at a popular London performance venue.

Samira Ahmed, presenter of BBC shows Front Row and Newswatch, launched into a Twitter tirade after the Barbican changed its toilet signs.

She wrote: “So dear Barbican Centre bosses, listen to your customers.

“Women [have enough] trouble with queues without you imposing your politics.

“Or just turn the gents into gender-neutral loos. There’s never such a queue there and you know it. Thank you.”

The Tweets, which were posted over almost three hours, come as the debate about gendered toilets continues to grow.

She wrote that one of the bathrooms was “full of men”, writing: “Women’s loo labelled ‘gender neutral’ so full of men who also have a ‘urinal’ to themselves. Totally ridiculous.”

Ahmed went on: “Give us back women’s loos for all women.

“Why do women lose our space to men!? All women can use ladies loos. This isn’t the USA.”

Donald Trump recently overturned a rule designed to protect transgender young people, allowing them to use the bathroom they identify with.

The Barbican has since responded to her complaints, writing online: “We introduced the gender-neutral toilets in part of the centre as part of our commitment to welcoming all and creating a supportive and tolerant space,” a spokesman for the centre said.

“We welcome all your feedback about the new system as we look to ensure an outstanding audience experience for all.”

Although the BBC anchor’s nearest bathrooms were gender neutral, the Barbican has many gendered bathrooms should someone wish to use an alternative.[*]

Rebecca Stinson, head of trans inclusion at Stonewall, told The Times: “It’s really encouraging that more businesses want to help trans people feel safe and welcome.

“However, before making this move, businesses must research the best way to make a space fully inclusive and communicate the importance of inclusion clearly with staff.

“Other easy steps include . . . ensuring that trans people know they are welcome to use the facilities they find most appropriate.”

Ms Ahmed previously won an award from Stonewall for her investigation into so-called ‘corrective rape’.

The BBC declined to comment on the presenter’s comments.

The online rants comes after another Radio 4 presenter, Dame Jenni Murray, was widely condemned by trans activists for writing trans women are not “real women”.

Rebecca Stinson, head of trans inclusion at Stonewall who was quoted in both articles, penned a piece two years ago titled “I’m a TransWoman And I Don’t Want Gender Neutral Toilets”.

In that piece he opined that forcing himself into female restrooms, although it caused women distress, was his way of affirming his identity. He suggested that women who feared him should be “Ejected from the loo” and forced to use a “gender bigot toilet”. “I’m not going anywhere. I’m a trans woman and I am more than happy to piss wherever there’s a girl on the door,” he states. Read his post here:

Stinson now lobbies on behalf of @StonewallUK for removal of sex as a protected legal category for women, placement of male convicts in women’s prisons, and for “Gender Neutral” changing rooms and the replacement of women’s sports with “Gender Neutral” sports:  http://www.stonewall.org.uk/sites/default/files/stw-vision-for-change-2017.pdf He also blogs at http://transactiongirl.blogspot.com where he says readers can “Feel free to enjoy my intellectual nourishment all day long”.

 

Rebecca Stinson of Stonewall UK

The third media report was a direct interview with BBC’s Vanessa Feltz, who suggests women should suck it up. Samira suggests there’s reasonable grounds for a sex discrimination suit.

Mainstream media promotion of America’s circa 2017 political movement to roll back changes from feminist and gay rights movements by containing dastardly nonconformity to sex-stereotypes via ‘transgender’: the idea that women are feminine (submissive) and men are masculine (dominating) and outliers have a medical condition, and/or are intersex special snowflakes.

The most important thing to remember is that men who want to wear make-up and skirts can’t possibly be male, and women regardless of presentation are still the people that get raped by men. Also that nelly gays and butch lesbians can be medically corrected into normalcy.

Primetime CBS special aired last night.
