“Terf Tracker” Allison Woolbert (from youtube)

Allison Woolbert, founder of the “Terf Tracker”, “Trans Violence Tracking Portal” and “Transgender Human Rights Institute” resigned today when his criminal past as a violent sex offender was revealed by fellow transwomen Wesley “Laurelai” Bailey and Harrison “Melissa” Savage. Bailey and Savage formerly assisted Woolbert in his cyber-stalking projects, where they “doxxed” and harassed women they suspected might disbelieve that men such as themselves can “become women” by merely proclaiming themselves as such.

They targeted women, in particular lesbians and feminists, by logging those who “liked” posts on Facebook that the men disagreed with. They then posted what they believed to be the personal information about the women on various websites created to facilitate criminal stalking and harassment against them by fellow “transwomen”. Their purpose was to terrorize women who might believe in the idea that sex-roles are culturally constructed. In so doing they hoped to frighten women from participating in the public square of society and silence discussion of the way sex-roles (“gender”) is harmful to women and girls.

Woolbert, formerly known as Dennis Wayne Woolbert was convicted in 1991 of Aggravated Sexual Assault in the First Degree, apparently his victim was a family member. More details will be posted as they emerge. Here is Woolbert’s resignation letter:

  1. YeahOK Says:

    Notice how the commitment to human rights did not include gender….

    • Ashland Avenue Says:

      That was the very first thing I noticed about his little list. He obviously doesn’t give one whit about women. They get in the way of his delusions just too often, I guess.

    • shediogenes Says:

      …race, ethnicity, ability, religion, age and umm, er, well etc. What, whaa, what, I said ETCETERA.

      Yeah, ok pal, you’re committed to human rights for “etc.”


  2. Okay, now seriously, why do so many of these dudes have criminal backgrounds? I mean, trans women are a tiny percentage of the population, but the rate of criminality is jaw droppingly high. WTF?

    • Miep Says:

      They also apparently have statistically high military backgrounds, fwiw. Transitioning in this case can be seen as an attempt to split from one’s own violent tendencies. This hardly qualifies as therapy. Therapy is about integration.


      • You’te right, it’s always something violent. You’d think with so many of them in IT they would be embezzling or hacking into Wall Street. Nah, these dudes are always hurting people. It really is telling.

      • Zemskull Says:

        Hi Miep: I was told by someone at a VA hospital that veterans are twice as likely as the general population to be transgender. The VA pays for hormones, counseling, pre-operative evaluation and post-operative care. It does cover not the genital surgery or cosmetic procedures.

    • ImNoCissie Says:

      Because the delusion of “being in the wrong body” is a symptom of underlying and untreated mental illness

      *and/or* the violence they want to do to their own bodies is entirely consistent with being violent toward others (that standard of “a danger to oneself or others” is not a standard for nothing – suicide and homicide can walk hand in hand)

      *and/or* “man who failed at life and humanity” equates to “feeling like a woman” in the twisted culture these dudes come from

      *and/or* they feel like they should castrate themselves either as punishment for harm they’ve actually done to others or as a means to try to repress the violent fantasies and rageful feelings they have.

      There’s my armchair analysis of what I’ve observed in these men.

      • GallusMag Says:

        I’ve seen nothing to indicate any form of “castration” for Mr. Woolbert. The vast majority of “transwomen” never undergo any genital surgery. Many don’t even take hormone treatments (examples: Daryl “Sophia” Banks, Joe “Ruby” Ryan).

      • ImNoCissie Says:

        You’re right, I forgot about all the lady-penises out there!

        And looking at this dude’s photo, which I avoided doing the first time, he certainly looks as if all he’s done to “transition” was grow his hair, put on some earrings and call himself Shirley, I mean Allison.

        I could add another bullet point:

        *and/or* wearing wigs, lipstick and being able to craft a new identity down to changing your birth certificate can be a good place for psychopaths to hide.

        Maybe it is just that simple for people like him.

        Yet, I do think endless body mods and surgery and fetishizing of the idea of castration is pathological. As was pointed out further down, sometimes the castration fixation is playing out through encouraging others to do it….castration and mutilation for thee but not for me. They get off on seeing it acted out but wouldn’t do it themselves. Perhaps. Like I said, armchair analysis.


    • Okay, I’m sorry to chew this to death, but this is really a concerning issue. Trans women are a tiny segment of the population. Sexual assault is one of the least reported crimes. I’ve been reading about these issues for less than a year, yet I can rattle off a dozen or so of these guys who have assaulted women/girls? And keep in mind, these are only the ones who’ve been CONVICTED, which is an absolutely microscopic percentage of the whole. What in the actual hell is going on here, and why hasn’t anyone studied it? I mean, I know correlation is not causation, but the percentage of sexual predators to be found in the trans population is much too high, even for a casual observation, to be a coincidence.

      • Miep Says:

        Roslyn: common thread is fetishizing boundary transgression.


      • And this is why we need to take every single threat seriously.
        I have started keeping track of the worst of the tumblriites. Its a damn epidemic of violent threats over there, open fucking season. (NONE of the threats are from feminists. NONE.)

        I hate to say this, but in the words of an old rock song, somebody’s gonna hurt someone.

        The victim will probably be one of the young, attractive, pro-trans bisexual feminists who dares to refuse them. Just as they notably target inexperienced young trans men and the (diagnosed) mentally-ill in their own ranks. (i.e. ZeroAmbit/BaeddelAmbit repeatedly accused BeefBludd/BaeddelBlood/Casey Geyer/Autogynephile of raping them, and I believe them. I was one of the few who did; I saw how they isolated and then drove Zero out of their community, which helped to convince me AND make my skin crawl, how very efficient they were at it.) .

        I wish these young women who like to “call out” the “terfs” would realize they are painting a bright red target on their backs.


      • Those creeps on tumblr scare the all-living hell out of me. I’ve read two posts by trans men who’ve been raped by them. I just don’t get how clueless these kids are. Not to mention the pedophiles that seem to be outed every week. What in the living hell is wrong with these people that they don’t see that there’s something obviously wrong? The percentages are incredibly skewed. They’ve already hurt a shitload of people with absolutely NO CONSEQUENCES.

      • morag99 Says:

        Roslyn, I’m with you. Seems as though trans-ing men are not “just as likely” as other men to commit sex crimes (which is bad enough, considering how much access they’re being granted to girls and women) but MORE likely to commit violent sex crimes against women, children, and vulnerable men.

        Who’s going to do the study? Who’s going to risk the criticism such a study would invite and, at the same time, be regarded as authoritative and credible?

        While we’re waiting for another study that may never happen (the first one, as I recall, only looked at crime in general), I have no qualms about pre-judging the whole lot of them as creepers and as actual, or potential, pedophiles and rapists.

      • kesher Says:

        I wonder if the results of that Swedish study were skewed by trans “women” still not having quite as much access to choice victims at the time as they’re gaining now in Scandinavia and the English-speaking world. Most predators and pedos prefer compliant victims, such as family members, intimate partners, friends, and other people in a position of trust. If, when that study was conducted, normal Swedes still saw dudes in dresses as a bunch of pervs, I could see the sexual assault rate being lower for that reason.

        And I mentioned this earlier, but I’m very interested to know the rates of trans-on-trans rape especially given how many trans people are victims of sex crimes. Some of that I’m sure is due to sex work, but how much of it is creeps preying on the best victims: young kids who bought into the trans is magic propaganda and would be more hesitant than most to go to the authorities?


  3. I know I’ve promised, but only started the job 2 months ago and still reeling from unemployment bout. BUT! I promise to pay up as soon as I’m able – because this work you do GM is superb.

    This is priceless. And, no, violent offenders should be rejected by doctors for “transition”….I believe all gender dysphoria might best be treated by mental health practitioners. They are CRAZY.

    Can these men be charged for criminal harrassment now?

  4. Teal Deer Says:

    Oh, how magnanimous of him! He was only thinking of the victim’s comfort and well-being when he kept his violent past a secret.

    Typical.

  5. gg Says:

    Even the most despicable criminals are capable of feeling self-disgust about their crimes and may fear that they’ll repeat them. I wonder if the fact that he’s a rapist is why he volunteered for the time-honored treatment of castration.


  6. I am shocked—shocked!—that a man wanting access to women’s spaces and stalking women who objected turned out to be a sex offender.

    • morag99 Says:

      Yeah, who woulda thought?

      Only a bigot would connect the dots between sexual festish, harassment, stalking and rape. Pattern-recognition is transphobic, and could be hazardous to a woman’s health and safety.

  7. Miep Says:

    Ah, the good ol’ multiple personality defense. Because that is always so reassuring.

  8. margaret Says:

    holy shit! – wasn’t it just YESTERDAY that Woolbert was given the Brenda Marshall Memorial Award which ‘recognizes an individual or organization that best exemplifies the vision, principals and community service exemplified by the late LGBT rights activist Brenda Howard and who serves as a positive and visible role model for the Bisexual Community.’ – maybe these orgs should do a CRIMINAL BACKGROUND CHECK before beatifying these dudes

    • Miep Says:

      “holy shit! – wasn’t it just YESTERDAY that Woolbert was given the Brenda Marshall Memorial Award which ‘recognizes an individual or organization that best exemplifies the vision, principals and community service exemplified by the late LGBT rights activist Brenda Howard and who serves as a positive and visible role model for the Bisexual Community.’ –”

      Details, details.🙂

    • morag99 Says:

      Maybe they did check, and decided that “well, nobody’s perfect.”

      • Teal Deer Says:

        More like they dismissed it because transition equals a clean slate. How can you hold things done during pre-transition dysphoria against “her”? Transphobia!!!

    • GallusMag Says:

      10th Annual Brenda Howard Memorial Award

      The Queens Chapter of Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG) regrets to inform you that Allison Woolbert has been dropped as an as the recipient of the 10th Annual Brenda Howard Memorial Award. While Allison is a wonderful person who does great work for the community, circumstances arose that have precluded her from accepting the award. A new awardee will be named soon.
      The Brenda Howard Award recognizes an individual or organization whose work on behalf of the bisexual community (as well as the whole BLGT community) best exemplifies the pioneering and political spirit of the late bisexual Activist and “mother of pride” Brenda Howard.

      • GallusMag Says:

        Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays says the violent rapist is a “wonderful person” but something came up. Lord. These are the people working with kids.

      • morag99 Says:

        Yes, Gallus: it sounds a lot like: “oopsie, something just came up.” PFLAG’s language in that statement should make everyone’s skin crawl.

        That sneaky passive voice: “circumstances arose” that “precluded her from accepting the award.” They could be talking about some inconvenient but natural event, like a snowstorm. Which is obviously how they view aggravated sexual assault. No human agents/actors, just a pesky “circumstance” which stands between a “wonderful person” and [his] award.

        May the parents and friends of lesbians and gays take note of the way PFLAG is lying, and insulting their intelligence, in order to shield a convicted rapist.

  9. kesher Says:

    Sure, 1991 was a long time ago, but the “in my 20s” line makes it seem like Woolbert was barely an adult, but his birth year is 1963, making him 28 when he sexually assaulted his relative. A little too old for the “young kid” defense.


  10. From twitter posts it looks like some type of power play went down, and the doxx king got doxxed. A fitting reward, dontcha think?

  11. bleh Says:

    Ban rapists and violent offenders from changing legal gender and name. Ban them yesterday.


    • You would think that changing their identities would be illegal, because they can hide their pasts this way.
      That won’t happen because violent males protect violent males

      • morag99 Says:

        “violent males protect violent males”

        Exactly. Except when they have something to gain from exposing one another. Then, it’s about ego gratification — never concern for the victims of male violence.

  12. Miep Says:

    “and/or* they feel like they should castrate themselves either as punishment for harm they’ve actually done to others or as a means to try to repress the violent fantasies and rageful feelings they have.”

    And/or encourage confused teenage boys to pressure their parents to have them castrated, in order to bolster cultural acceptance of their insanity.

    • Miep Says:

      And yes, Gallus, I understand that mostly they don’t get bottom surgery anymore. I don’t think they openly point that out to these kids though. That’s an interesting question, is that subject taboo inside their community as well?

      • kesher Says:

        Cross-sex hormones administered at puberty sterilizes kids. Does it also actually cause impotence for boys (unlike later-in-life HRT that doesn’t)?

        How willing they’re willing to talk about their dicks seems to vary. It seems like the fetishists can’t shut up about it. But I also think trans activists (correctly) assume tackle status is a bad thing to bring up since middle America doesn’t want dick in the women’s bathroom.

    • born free & female Says:

      I’ve seen websites where older transitioners post pictures of young transitioners (or even females) and drool about how transitioning young is so important because it makes you hot.


    • This is what I find terrifying, in that it is misguided and harmful to minors:

      And/or encourage confused teenage boys to pressure their parents to have them castrated, in order to bolster cultural acceptance of their insanity.

      I didn’t think this was done, anywhere, because it has the potential (maybe certainty) to sterilize and cause impotence for boys, permanently. Yet I have read multiple times that cross-sex hormones are administered at puberty (as described by kesher below), with parental consent, to 12 year old boys at one or more transgender clinics (facilities?) in the USA.

      Stray observation: I don’t read about girls or young women, i.e. under 18 or 21 years of age, with issues of gender dysphoria that are so severe that they just can’t wait until reaching psychological and physical maturity.


  13. What a typical male- destroy the lives of women who disagree with you, in words, but hide his own rapist past, then refer the rape as something you did in 20’s. Like he back packed Europe, or experimented with drugs, instead of being a vicious predator.

    I am sure he won’t be harassed, like the women he worked to intimidate and bully, although he deserves it so richly. Nope. I’m sure he will instead be ignored a few weeks, then taken right back into the fold. Maybe he will change his name again, maybe not, as Im sure its unneeded. Too many if these male born trans advocates (MBTA) have similar pasts, so they understand his need for access to new victims, and an outlet for violence against women.

    Will lib fems and other genderists wake up? Nah, they will individualize this, as they do everything. Just a bad seed, nothing to see here. He really is more like a branch of a poisonous vine, clinging to anything it touches, sucking it’s life out, and killing it.

    and nope, not surprised at all. I would be more shocked if he turned out to be a normal, decent person.

  14. Bev Jo Says:

    Thank you so much for this info, Gallus Mag.

    Just one more predatory prick, but of course there is a high percentage of these men who have been violent, rapists, murderers, etc, compated to other men.

    I keep saying that these are the MOST male of men, therefore the most violent and dangerous. Their entire game of pretending to be women is about hating women and not taking no for an answer. Add to that their incredible sense of entitlement and arrogance, and they are even more dangerous.

    It’s worrying, actually, that some here seem to feel sorry for this prick, assuming he was violent to himself. We have to get rid of the myth that these men have any surgery at all since few don’t.

    I just wish everyone knew the truth about them all….

    • morag99 Says:

      From the interview:

      “Allison: Trans violence is an epidemic that is continuing to plague our community.”

      Do you notice something? When feminists discuss the ways in which men abuse and assault women, we don’t call this pattern “female violence.” We call it, properly, “male violence.”

      I don’t think trans activists have a universal problem with their diction. What they have a problem with is calling male violence “male violence.” They want to be able to include women/feminist’s speech as violence against males, so they twist the words and inadvertently implicate themselves as violent (which they are). It’s not ha-ha funny, but it IS funny.

      Which reminds me. Last night I came across a blog post, written a few months ago, which discusses Woolbert and the “TERF-Tracker” project in glowing terms. It begins with this sentence:

      “Violence is a major part of the lives of most transgender people … ”

      Funny, no? I’ll bet that writer wishes he could go back and tweak that sentence — just a little!

      • kesher Says:

        “Trans violence is an epidemic that is continuing to plague our community.”

        What’s funny about this statement is that I’m sure he meant *anti*-trans violence, but, it sounds like he’s saying violence committed by trans people. And, yes, actually, that is a serious problem given that they want access to our spaces, and they’re content to lie about how their ladybrains and (fake) impotence make them totally harmless to women.

      So they consider it nothing. Nothing at all. Bussell calls it “some shit 20+ years ago.” I’m sure the victim doesn’t view it that way.

      I’m speechless. And you who else I’m sure will be speechless? The funfem sites, HuffPo, etc. They won’t cover this at all. It’s only a woman who was raped by this man, after all. Hell, happens every day. Don’t want to give the appearance of “transphobia”! Anything but THAT!

      I hope Woolbert rots in hell, the fucking rapist.

    • morag99 Says:

      “Pamela Raintree My past isn’t exactly spotless either.”

      Sure, Pamela, men raping their vulnerable family members is just a “spot” on their otherwise blemish-free lives. A lot like shop-lifting.

      “Ben Hudson Allison Woolbert, we would not be who we are today if we weren’t who we were before.”

      You can say that again, Ben Hudson!

      God, these people are sick. And dangerous.

    • kesher Says:

      It really is a male prerogative to promote rapists at the expense of women and children. That’s why they won’t even compromise on the issue of sex offenders and other violent criminals having the “right” to transition. What’s some woman who fears rape doing telling a man what he can or can’t do?

    • Teal Deer Says:

      These are the same people who publicly crucify any feminist who has said anything gender-critical at any point in their lives, even if they’re trying to toe the trans line in the present or are trying to speak about something completely unrelated.

      And of course “The work of equality for all transgender people should not be tarnished solely based on a crime I committed as a different person in my twenties”

      Why is it always “I’m just becoming the person I’ve always been! I was never a man, I’ve always been Felicia Angelique Featherbottom-Fancypants, not Bruce!” unless they molested/raped/murdered in the past. And then it’s, “that was back when I was a man, I’m different now that I’m a woman. That was Bruce acting, not Felicia! The male hormones and dysphoria made me do it. I’m not like that anymore. I was a different person in my twenties!”

      Also funny that the “rage” ones are all mtfs. The ftm up there talking about her storied past never mentioned any desire to rape or murder other people, just self-destructive and criminal behavior. I wonder what the difference could be…

        EXACTLY.

  16. Ashland Avenue Says:

    So I looked up the definition of “Aggravated sexual assault in the first degree.” Perhaps it varies slightly by state, but I’m sure the gist of it is the same across the board. Here ya go:

    Sec. 53a-70a. Aggravated sexual assault in the first degree: Class B or A felony. (a) A person is guilty of aggravated sexual assault in the first degree when such person commits sexual assault in the first degree as provided in section 53a-70, and in the commission of such offense

    (1) such person uses or is armed with and threatens the use of or displays or represents by such person’s words or conduct that such person possesses a deadly weapon,

    (2) with intent to disfigure the victim seriously and permanently, or to destroy, amputate or disable permanently a member or organ of the victim’s body, such person causes such injury to such victim,

    (3) under circumstances evincing an extreme indifference to human life such person recklessly engages in conduct which creates a risk of death to the victim, and thereby causes serious physical injury to such victim, or

    (4) such person is aided by two or more other persons actually present.

    So. This is your hero, transjacktivists. This is your hero, HuffPo. This is your hero, portions of the LGBTWTF community. This is your hero, The Advocate. And your hero too, Autostraddle and Jezebel and Feministe and Feministing and all the other dipshit funfem sites. Your zeal to throw women under the bus in order to cater to pornsick men has really paid off, huh?

    • morag99 Says:

      Ashland, the definitions of “Aggravated sexual assault in the first degree” were slightly different in 1991, when he was charged and convicted in New Jersey. The definition is “an act of sexual penetration,” and Cathy Brennan has listed all the circumstances on her site, which include:

      (1) The victim is less than 13 years old;

      (2) The victim is at least 13 but less than 16 years old; and

      (a) The actor is related to the victim by blood or affinity to the third degree, or

      (b) The actor has supervisory or disciplinary power over the victim by virtue of the actor’s legal, professional, or occupational status, or

      (c) The actor is a foster parent, a guardian, or stands in loco parentis within the household;

      —————

      So, it’s possible that Woolbert (who was 28 at the time) raped a child.

      • GallusMag Says:

        His arrest record cites (2)(a). So, he apparently raped a family member who was between the ages of 13 and 16.

        Just so we’re clear: Josh Alcorn’s parents should “Die in a fire” because they took his internet access away (allegedly) for a few months. But if they had RAPED him, it would not only be forgivable, but malicious to the perpetrator’s to even mention it. OKAY,….. TRANS ACTIVISTS. OKAY………

        HOLY SHIT.


      • Just so we’re clear, “Misgendering is violence,” but raping a child is “Some shit from twenty years ago.” These people make me want to hurl.

      • morag99 Says:

        A child rapist who fights for the human rights of men who live to violate boundaries and who, not uncommonly, rape women and children. Makes sense. It really does.

        I’m reminded now about what Andrea Dworkin said to pedophile, Allen Ginsberg, when he whined, “The right wants to put me in jail.”

        She replied, “Yes, they’re very sentimental; I’d kill you.”

        Gallus: “But if they had RAPED him, it would not only be forgivable … ”

        Excellent. I want to hear Dan Savage, the Jezebels, and the others who have pilloried the Alcorns weigh-in on this one.

      • Ashland Avenue Says:

        Ah, I forgot about the time difference. Thanks for the correction, Morag. Obviously, my point still stands. The man is a child rapist, and there’s absolutely NO “paying your debt to society” for that.

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
    THRI Board of Trustees Respond to Offered Resignation of Allison Woolbert
    Princeton, NJ (January 8, 2015) — In light of revelations regarding our Executive Director, Allison D. Woolbert, and the public tendering of her resignation to the board, the Board of Trustees convened in an emergency executive session on January 7, 2015. Consideration was given to the information presented and the context surrounding its threat of public revelation.
    The Board of Trustees voted unanimously to NOT accept the offer of resignation. A second unanimous vote expressed the board’s confidence in Allison Woolbert’s ability to function in the role of Executive Director of the THRI and all its projects. The events revealed today do not diminish that for us.
    Allison Woolbert continues to have our confidence, admiration and respect; first for her courage in proactively approaching the board about the risk created for the THRI, the Transgender Violence Tracking Portal (TVTP) and our efforts towards Leelah’s Law by the malicious revelation of her past history; secondly, her willingness to put the mission of the THRI and Leelah’s Law ahead of her own involvement in them; and finally, for the positive changes she has made in her own life after accepting responsibility for what she did, accepting the just punishment for those actions, and undergoing successful treatment. All of the aforementioned make it quite clear that it is a lifetime of contributions to society, to LGBT communities and a passion for social justice that should be considered when evaluating her, and not an event in her distant past for which she has already paid her debt to society.
    Few, if any people have past histories that can withstand scrutiny, yet positive change is always possible. Transgender people, by our very nature, reveal the ability of humans to transcend our past and change our lives in positive ways. We are literal avatars of change.
    It is difficult to fully express our disappointment with members of what should be a united community for stooping to malicious character assassination and intentional divisiveness in pursuit of a personal vendetta, actions that ultimately may impact the safety and well-being of transgender people around the world.

      Next time I hear, but it’s just one “transwoman”. Wow, somebody would think trans activists act similar to a shady cartel sometimes!

      Even though Woolbert is trash he offered to resign because maybe he has an inkling of doubt over what he did (or thought he would be chucked out), just disgusting.

      • GallusMag Says:

        “Next time I hear, but it’s just one “transwoman”.

        THIS.

      • kesher Says:

        Seems like Woolbert has at least some awareness of how a convicted child rapist being on the board of a trans organization makes them all look bad. The other laydeez on the board don’t have that awareness. Quelle surprise.

      • morag99 Says:

        kes and kesher: Yes, Woolbert appears to have some awareness, at least, that child rape LOOKS pretty bad.

        The board members, however, say the moral equivalent of: Pfftt! What’s a little violent child rape in one’s distant past? We’ve all drank too much, or took pens and post-its from the office, or raped children in our past histories. Stop being so malicious and judgemental!

        Anyway, Woolbert made a pretend resignation, probably just for show. It was only an offer to resign, and was probably all planned out with the board members, with the outcome determined in advance.

      • Miep Says:

        It makes a certain amount of sense that in a community with a high proportion of violent offenders, violence would be seen as normalized/trivialized.

        It’s long struck me as intriguing that so many people worry about being seen as transphobic. If you asked the same people “Are you comfortable around men with a history of violence towards women and/or children,” what would they say?

      • kesher Says:

        “It makes a certain amount of sense that in a community with a high proportion of violent offenders, violence would be seen as normalized/trivialized.”

        It does make sense, but trans activists are dealing with many people who still view trans women as almost universally sexual deviants and predators. For my part, I think a trans woman is as likely to be a deviant and predator as any other man, but then that’s still a good argument to keep them the hell out of our spaces.

        Compare this to gay men who told NAMBLA to gtfo in the ’80s. I can’t see the current trans movement doing that.

        For one, you have the male imperative of defending other men at the expense of women and children, and, for two, you have their wishful thinking that identifying as women *makes* them women and somehow magically gives them the same low rates of violence and deviance.


      • But here’s the thing Kesher. You’re talking about respectability politics. Respectability politics is the reason Rosa Parks is held up as the instigator of the Montgomery Bus Boycott and not the young teen mother who resisted first. Marginalized groups know they must be like Caesar’s wife, beyond reproach. That is something these het white males have NO experience with. Whatever they say or do is acceptable. And this why there will never be a “peak trans.” Despite their appropriation of the language of the marginalized, they know they’re NOT marginalized. And more importantly, everyone else knows it, too. This is white male privilege at its most powerful. They will have what they want, when they want it because they are male and white. There will be no movement to push the autogynephiles out, because, unlike the gays they’re not marginalized people. No one will scrutinize or question their behavior. Not to mention, autogynephiles make up the bulk of trans and given that they’re middle aged white males they’ve got the money to back up their position. This is why their movement has moved to the forefront so quickly. They’re not going anywhere. Peak trans isn’t coming.

      • GallusMag Says:

        @RoslynHolcomb- Gah. Brutal, brutal truth.

      • morag99 Says:

        I second that this is the “brutal, brutal truth.” They’re not going anywhere, for all the reasons you outlined.

        Yes — the bulk of the trans “movement,” or at least its public voice, is white, straight, autogynephilic men-with-money. Men who are in NO way marginalized. They do, however, want to enlarge the margins of their playground. They do desire to break the boundaries of resistance to their privileged sickness — and, in decadent fashion, to force others play along in happy agreement.

        For them, “oppression” means that other people just aren’t smiling hard enough. Or, worse — in the case of many women, feminists, lesbians — not smiling at all. I mean, really, why can’t we just cheer them on even as they’re fucking with us for their own gratification? Oppression!

        So, yes, they steal the language and activist strategies of the truly marginalized and, moreover, make USE of the truly marginalized (as you, Roslyn, wrote in another comment) as “a human shield.”

      • michelle Says:

        Burke (subject of the book) is a white female who smothered her seven-week old son and got 77 years in TDCJ, with a requirement that she serve 30 years to even be eligible for parole. She basically rested her appeals on the claim that the medical examiner had lied about his qualifications for the job and got it under false pretenses…nowhere did they really try to dispute his findings.

        In other words, the book is no different than the other tranny shit- ‘you have to believe us because we cast these aspersions.’

    • Ashland Avenue Says:

      That letter from the pissant “board of trustees” of this dog-and-pony show is one of the most sickening things I’ve seen the trannies pull so far. This man RAPED A CHILD. I just….I’m gobsmacked by this. They paint it as if he stole some lipstick from Walgreen’s, for Christ’s sake.

      I love the part about how, in the middle of all their asskissing and forgiving of Woolbert, they find time to “express their disappointment” with those who revealed this information! So I guess in their world, sticking together is far more important than letting people know exactly who it is they may be supporting with their dollars, time, and space. And of course there’s the added drama: “…actions that ultimately may impact the safety and well-being of transgender people around the world.” DO THESE IDIOTS HEAR THEMSELVES?!!

    • DaveSquirrel Says:

      Look at the wording from his (violent luvvin) cronies:

      “by the malicious revelation of her past history”

      See their spin – the ‘revelation’ becomes the malicious act. The actual criminal act, pffft, *nothing to see here, move along*

      • Miep Says:

        They are fundies. Born agains. Their old lives and names are supposedly dead and off limits. Really the same logic, I’ve seen rapey dudes join fundie sects and act like that.

        Except they’re the same people and they do at times revert to type.

      • DaveSquirrel Says:

        The first clue, that the ‘Transgender Human Rights Institute’ was not a legitimate human rights org, was their support of Woolbert and Woolbert’s ‘tracking’ projects (particularly TERF Tracker) – which is not a legitimate ‘tracking’ project, but a stalking/harassment project of people (primarily female people) who disagree with them.

        No real surprise really, that the Board ‘refused’ to accept his resignation. True to form, for what they are.

        The trans ‘movement’ is led by M2Ts, who supposedly have ‘laydee brains™’, but given their main anti-female and anti-feminist agendas (particularly the takeover of feminism, stalking of female dissenters), clearly they are nothing like females, and very much like MRA terrorists.

    • CD Says:

      “Transgender people, by our very nature, reveal the ability of humans to transcend our past and change our lives in positive ways. We are literal avatars of change.”

      As disgusting as it is that they are defending this man, it’s clear that this is in line with their thinking. These men think that being genetically/physiologically/anatomically male and socialised in the masculine gender role magically becomes irrelevant once somebody declares himself to “have always known he was female”, etc. In that light, it isn’t surprising that a history of sexual violence magically becomes irrelevant once somebody establishes himself as a “human rights advocate”.

      …I wonder whether something like this could be cited in cases concerning women-only spaces. In some cases, like in my city, there are legal challenges aiming to reverse decisions to allow male trans people into female-only spaces. Surely, if it can be demonstrated that the trans organisations which lobby to allow males into female-only spaces are officially condoning a child rapist, that would weaken the pro-trans case? (I mean, the Woolbert case is only the tip of the iceberg, and I’m sure that plenty of trans organisations are on record doing things like this.)

    • neme Says:

      OMFG! “We are literal avatars” … An Avatar is a Hindu God or goddess who chooses to appear in human form. So, no. They are literally megalomaniacal racists. They are in no shape or form “avatars.”

      Not unless demons in human form can be described with that word. Nope, not gods… child-raping demons.


    • I don’t think it’s unfair of me to assume, from this reaction, that the board is almost entirely made up of sex offenders.

      • morag99 Says:

        dogsarestupidandugly: no, you’re not being unfair. Their reactions to a man who raped a child (and probably other women and children) are incredibly revealing.

        It’s just not NORMAL to come to the defence of a rapist and to hide or minimize his crimes. His crimes must be, in some way, similar to their own crimes. The only difference is, most men are never charged and convicted the way Woolbert was.

    • shediogenes Says:

      what is with this shit? we all have a past, blah, blah, blah, few peoples live could bear scrutiny, blah.
      I may have done some things I’m embarrassed about, a few I’m ashamed of, but nothing even remotely like child rape. These dirtbags talk like, oh, no big deal, happens to the best of us. They talk as if this kind of past is commonplace. I’m left to assume by their own cavalier attitude about child rape, that for them it is commonplace.

  18. Nila Says:

    No surprise their that vast majority of the trans community is filled with Violent sex offenders and convicted felons. This is just proves that the trans community is filled with Men hating women, violent sex offenders, rapist and convicted felons. Maybe now is a good time the LGB cuts all ties from the Trans and dump them to the curb.

  19. ngblog Says:

    The website domain for this Transgender Human Rights Institute (THRI) thingy is registered to Woolbert; so….is Woolbert actually walking back his resignation?

  20. BigBooButch Says:

    He talks about how he has changed and how compassionate he s as a human being, but he is still that same violent man that he was 23 years ago. He still stalks and harasses women and he even keeps lists of women to harass while also facilitating violence against women by doxxing them and instructing others to be violent against the women he has doxxed.

    No, he has not changed one bit. Violence against women is all this man knows and cares about.

      Woolbert, a transgender woman in New Jersey who transitioned several years ago, was overjoyed seeing her daughter and son again, now 12 and 15 years old. But she missed out on a lot of important time during their adolescence, as did they.”

      Who the heck is Allison Woolbert????
      Allison Woolbert grew up in Silver Bell, Arizona, a remote copper mining community (now a ghost town), where she never quite fit in. She attended Abilene Christian University, where she didn’t fit in either; ended up in the US Air Force, where she definitely did not fit in; and in 2008 was introduced to the Unitarian Universalists (UU), where she finally started to feel like she fit in.

      She has been the CEO of Phoenix Consultants Group, a national software development firm, for the past 18 years; founder of the Transgender Violence Tracking Portal. Allison founded Interweave of South Jersey to promote education, equality, and social justice for the LGBT community

      An educator, speaker, writer and advocate in the field of gender bias, gender identity, gender expression, erasure, human rights equality and religious abuse, Allison brings her unique perspective and humor that draws on a rich variety and unusual breadth of experience as a gender-affirmed woman in the 21st century. Her advocacy and speaking engagements have included sermons, workshops, regional conferences and social justice organizations throughout the east coast and abroad. She provides guidance as an interfaith organizer balancing events that honor all religious beliefs as a spiritual pathway to respect and dignity of all.

      She served as the Transgender Advocate for the UU-United Nations Office 2009- 2010. She is an organizer for nationwide Transgender Day of Remembrance vigils as well as a speaker and researcher dedicated to finding the media alerts of transgender individuals who have been murdered throughout the world. She has been on numerous direct non-violent action planning committees as an adviser for many of the ‘die-in’ demonstrations across the country raising awareness to the transgender murders that have been occurring.

      Allison was the national UU contact for the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) in conjunction with the UU Washington Office of Advocacy and Standing on the Side of Love. Her advocacy efforts resulted in a 2010 Responsive Resolution at General Assembly to press for passage of ENDA through thousands of letters and phone calls to the House, Senate and White House.

      Her professional interactive workshops concerning Gender Identity and Sexual Orientation (SOGI) create an affirming, but provocative environment where individual beliefs can be safely explored. Workshops have been presented at the Murray Grove Annual Meeting, Joseph Priestly District Annual Conference, General Assembly 2010, Philadelphia Family Matters Conference, NJ CURA and others.

      Allison is a credentialed practicing Reiki Master and healer.

      She has 5 wonderful children. She has an outstanding and continual relationships for over 45 years with her mentors and comforters; the speaking stuffed teddy bear Biff (as a child), the real life Boston Terrier, Biff, her very best friend as a youth who listened and played with her; and now Biff, her beautiful stuffed non-organic Boston Terrier (who is the best listener and comforter EVER!). She enjoys watching Biff’s reincarnation to new and exciting physical beings, perhaps mirroring her own?

        “Woolbert went to college, intending to study for the ministry, but stayed only one semester. He served in the Air Force as a male and was married three times, trying to pretend everything was normal.

        Able to endure the charade no longer, Woolbert came out in 2008, ending a 15-year marriage. When she began transitioning to female a year-and-a-half ago she lost her house and her successful computer programming business as contracts, many with Fortune 500 corporations, were not renewed. She became homeless and estranged from three of her five children.”

        That buzzfeed article made me sick. Women who deny their exes access to children are always made out to be hateful harpy bitches who are using their own children to get revenge on the poor men. But, women have reasons. Women run away and hide themselves and their children from sick men if they don’t think the courts will help them.

        How do we know he didn’t sexually abuse his own kids? Perhaps involve them in his fetish? This man can’t keep his stories straight, and I’ll bet there are more than this one victim we know about.

        What I find peculiar in that resume is the failure to list the time it appears he spent in the New Jersey Department of Corrections. Records I saw show a 1995 release, which, gee, corresponded with his self-employment venture.

        Also notably lacking is the reference to his discharge from the armed services, which probably corresponded with his arrest and conviction. MOST people who served in the military tend to list their discharge very prominently given that so many employers build in a veterans preference to honorably discharged military peeps…

        HA!! “Safely explored”, my ass. I wonder what he does in his little seminars when someone expresses a thought that doesn’t cater to his delusions and ego. Does he then publish their personal information, and sic his buddies on them?

        The BuzzFeed article is pathetic; lazy journalism at its very worst. This lying sack of shit Woolbert blames the judge for him not getting custody of his kids?!! Maybe, oh just MAYBE, the judge felt that a CHILD RAPIST was not the best person (and damn, I use that word lightly) to be caring for kids. But no, Woolbert The Lying-Ass Liar spins it into something to evoke sympathy for himself. Damn, this guy probably qualifies for Maude-only-knows numbers of diagnoses in the DSM.

        I noticed in his CV there that Woolbert creates (so he says) several programs that ENsure (hat tip to Shonagh!) people and businesses being on the up-and-up, or in compliance with this or that, etc. But apparently he feels no compunction with the fact that he can’t be bothered to hold himself up to those standards. Just something that struck me as interesting.

        Another thing – he named his business Phoenix Consultants. I wonder if he was actually in Phoenix, Arizona at the time, or if that was a nod to his “re-birth.” *snicker* Gallus, I’m reminded of your tweet from last month, about the phoenix or butterfly tattoo! 😉

        Well, if Woolbert is following the late-transitioning script, odds are he didn’t lift a finger to help with the kids when he lived as a man, and he certainly didn’t change that behavior post-transition.

        Courts typically favor the actual primary caregiver, not the man who throws a tantrum when it turns out his years of making the little woman do all the work actually count for something.


      • Woolbert is a narcissist and dribbles his delusions all over the internet.

    • shediogenes Says:

      he missed 2 1/2 years, his kids were 15 and 12, and he missed out on important parts of their adolescence.
      Can we sparate them for just a few more years, he hasn’t missed out on the part of their adolescence when they’re just his type. FFS, he raped a kid, a family member in this age range, but I should feel soooo bad for his because he’s not seen them? 2 1/2 years wasnt long enough.

      one of the others associated with that site is claiming this morning on twitter that they were moving servers and that Dennis, err “Allison” had been hosting the site on his own computer (meaning he still has all of the data at the house to use to prey on the very people the site was ostensibly designed to protect).

  23. Lemoni Says:

    Mr Allison pulled the plug from the hosts which he owned after the male trans board changed their minds and let him go after all. It’s all about the money and promoting their own Trans agenda for trans conversion therapies. This way 300k signatories for ‘Leelahs Law ‘ don’t get to realise that the trans agenda is promoted by homophobic, misogynist child rapists and apologists funded by the porn and pharma industry.

  25. shonagh Says:

    I know it’s an infinitesimally small thing in comparison to… well… but I hate it when folks are trying to look all intellectual and yet don’t know the difference between ‘insure’ and ‘ensure’.

    • margaret Says:

      Oxford Dictionary: ‘There is considerable overlap between the meaning and use of insure and ensure. In both British and US English the primary meaning of insure is the commercial sense of providing financial compensation in the event of damage to property; ensure is not used at all in this sense. For the more general senses, ensure is the more usual word, but insure is also sometimes used, particularly in US English, e.g. bail is posted to insure that the defendant appears for trial; the system is run to ensure that a good quality of service is maintained.’ – and no one here is ‘trying to look all intellectual’

      • Ashland Avenue Says:

        Shonagh was referring to the repeated use of “insure” in Woolbert’s (self-proclaimed) list of programs he’s developed, that Gallus posted above. (It’s the list with the asterisks.) That list is from his biography at Kickstarter.

  26. Bev Jo Says:

    Considering how men identifying as women seem much more violent and entitled than other men (who are bad enough) and that their entire identity is based on female-hating and not taking no for an answer, I wonder how many have sexually assaulted girls and women before declaring they are “women.” I’m guessing it’s a high percentage. None of this should be a surprise, but if you bring it up to their supporters, we’re told “women rape too.” Really? Like a tiny fraction of what men do, and it doesn’t involved being made pregnant or (usually) given STDs, which can be lethal. And we sure don’t feel scared late at night on a street if we see a woman walking behind us. But a tranny? Still clearly a man….

    How and why are these men included in our “community?” The problem with wanting them gone from “LGBT,” is that we would still be with our oppressors who use us. We never asked to be included. We need to not be associated with them.

  27. Miep Says:

    “Why does this article not anywhere mention the exact nature of the crime and just say “sexual assault”. Its outrageous that I actually had to go to TERF pages to find out that this person was specifically found guilty of “aggravated sexual assault of a 13-16 year old” .”  – Stop Trans Chauvinism, quote from comments to Allison Woolbert piece in TA.

     Not sure “outrageous” is the adjective I’d select here. How about “telling?”

    • morag99 Says:

      I saw that comment on the Transadvocate. The commenter was very right to point out that the writers tip-toed around the nature of Woolbert’s crime. All lying liars do when they must face the truth but are still looking for a way out. But, if I recall the rest of his comment, he still blames the “TERFs” for everything.

      In fact, many of the commenters there are coming to Woolbert’s defence and minimizing him crime. Big surprise! But, even when they don’t defend him or child rape, even when they assert that he’s got to go, good riddance to bad rubbish, etc., it’s because of what their “enemies” will “do” with the information that there are pedophiles and rapists in their ranks.

      Well, what the heck can we expect? That’ll they will assert a MORAL position on male sexual violence against women and children? Fact is, none of them are shocked when their leaders turn out to be violent sexual predators.

      • Miep Says:

        Morag: well, that brings me back to my suggestion that these guys are like born-agains. They are different people now, so the past doesn’t matter. The fact that child rapists are notoriously recidivist doesn’t matter either. All that matters is what the cult says.

      • morag99 Says:

        Yes, Miep — just like born-agains. Some of those commenters, I’m sure you noticed, even talk about not “casting stones” and “he who has not sinned,” etc. So, they borrow the religious language directly!

        They also, of course, give us strong hints that they have a very similar histories to Woolbert’s.

    • neme Says:

      Many apologists say “sexual assault” in an effort to minimize a rapist’s crimes. “Sexual assault” is the lesser legal charge. As most jurisdictions define “rape” as violent sexual assault that specifically includes forced penetration by the assailant with a penis… no, actually, females do not rape. Females can only commit sexual assault, and even that is rare compared to the astronomical number of males who rape.

      They are probably also trying to avoid admitting Allison Woolbert is a male who has a penis. A penis he uses as a weapon to rape children.

  28. Ashland Avenue Says:

    From the BuzzFeed article: “Woolbert was afraid when she came out to her wife….A technology professional who was unemployed at the time (italics mine), she was afraid people wouldn’t hire her or be willing to do business with her.”

    But then in the article at UUWorld, which was published on May 31, 2010: “….Woolbert came out in 2008, ending a 15-year marriage. When she began transitioning to female a year-and-a-half ago (so that would’ve been early 2009) she lost her house and her successful computer programming business as contracts, many with Fortune 500 corporations, were not renewed.” (Due to transphobia, we’re supposed to surmise.)

    So in one interview, Woolbert claims he was unemployed when he came out to his wife in 2008. Yet somehow, by 2009, he had this big grand computer programming business with Fortune 500 corporations? The loss of which was such a financial hit that he lost his house and became homeless? Wow, that’s the kind of success that entrepreneurs can only dream of! Am I doing the math wrong, or is there bullshit afoot?

    Gallus (happy new year!) just for your info , wasn’t sure if you saw that you’re referenced here http://thefederalist.com/2015/01/09/leelahs-law-is-bad-law-and-bad-medicine/

    • GallusMag Says:

      Thank you Margaret. I wish you the happiest of New Years! x

      I see the author cites Harvard-educated marketing executive Mark “Mara” Keisling’s fabricated “less than 2%” statistic for US national average for suicide attempts. If folks click on the source Keisling used for that citation in his “Injustice at Every Turn” survey, you can see it leads to nowhere. The actual rate is slightly more than 4%.

      Also, the author discusses “Leelah’s Law” originating from Allison Woolbert’s “Transgender Human Rights Institute” but fails to mention Woolbert has just resigned due to his history as a convicted child rapist.

      Other than that, a surprisingly well-researched and balanced article for a right-wing publication.

      • Miep Says:

        Re: the Federalist article. Yes, worth reading. She doesn’t quite get it, she doesn’t get to the root of it, but she comes close at times and makes a lot of good points. If only she could see how much better her points would work outside of an essentialist premise..

      • GallusMag Says:

        Lol Miep, I don’t think that’s going to happen. She’s a right wing christian who would have us all raped, impregnated, and cooking barefoot if she had her way. lololol.

        Still, a surprisingly well-researched and surprisingly balanced piece from an author with such views.
        🙂


  30. @ Gallus,

    “Lol Miep, I don’t think that’s going to happen. She’s a right wing christian who would have us all raped, impregnated, and cooking barefoot if she had her way. lololol.

    Still, a surprisingly well-researched and surprisingly balanced piece from an author with such views.”

    I agree, and as I see it girls and women are being screwed by both the naïve, well-meaning, but brainwashed far left (gender identity laws that strip girls and women of their privacy rights, the left’s support of pornography, puberty suppressing drugs for kids, etc.) and the far Christian right (ban all abortions, restrictions on birth control etc.) Some of the most ghoulish human experiments were once carried out by people who were once viewed as progressive (lobotomies, etc.). On the far right side, women should be barefoot and pregnant, and their place is in the kitchen.

    There has to be something better. Or, it could be that left leaning people are just too afraid to speak out for fear of being branded “transphobic”. Anti-war, left-leaning Robert Jensen was viciously attacked for just writing an article stating that there are ethical implications involved in transitioning children, and suggesting that radical feminists might have a better vision for the future than the current dogma and belief system surrounding gender. There is nothing at all offensive in this article, but transgender activists demanded that book stores stop selling Jensen’s books. It’s terrifying and disgraceful what they did to this gentle, peaceful man. I think it’s safe to say much of the left is browbeaten into submission. The left used to stand for the free expression of ideas, but the way it stands right now, people are crucified for speaking out against anything that is the least bit trans/gender critical. How can drugging and sterilizing children with puberty suppressing drugs and/or hormones ever be a good thing, but we have to keep our mouths shut.

    The paragraph below is from Jensen, a true feminist ally. Some of Robert Jensen’s articles are listed on the Gail Dines website.

    “Transgender practices involving children that are questionable on public health grounds (such as the use of puberty blockers) raise serious moral questions about our collective obligation for children’s welfare.”

    http://dissidentvoice.org/2014/06/some-basic-propositions-about-sex-gender-and-patriarchy/

    • Ashland Avenue Says:

      I liked this from Jensen: “Nothing in a radical feminist analysis minimizes the social and/or psychological struggles of—nor provides support for violence against—people who identify as transgender or people who do not conform to patriarchal gender norms but do not identify as transgender. Radical feminism is not the cause of those struggles or the source of that violence but rather advocates for an egalitarian society with maximal freedom without violence.”

    • kesher Says:

      They also attacked Julian Vigo for having the temerity to defend Jensen and question leftist, pro-trans censorship in general. Although somehow I suspect Vigo, being a woman, got it worse.

Disrespecting people who have legally changed names by using their given names and misgendering them. Sounds like a bunch of scared and jealous women.
    I notice you pick on the not so passable trans folk. Pathetic bullies.

    Ill leave your little hate group’s page and let you tear this comment apart. Just thought I’d waste a few minutes calling you what you are….a sad bunch of middle aged, haggard women who feel the need to bully others and force opinions on people.

      I think in order to force your opinions on someone you’d have to, i dunno, like insert yourself into some else’s space and call them names and stuff. Like you did.

      But your wizard theory is compelling. Tell me more.

        Good luck with your project in support of members of the child-raping “community”. You’re gonna need it. You’ll find it’s not just awful, awful “narrow minded women” who “disrespect” the child rapists you support.

      • morag99 Says:

        ‘You’ll find it’s not just awful, awful “narrow minded women” who “disrespect” the child rapists you support.’

        Yeah, there are a lot of things Hayden doesn’t know. The meaning of words, for instance.

        But surely Hayden must know that there are plenty of decidedly un-feminist men out there who have “disrespectful” and “narrow-minded” opinions that they’d be happy to “force” onto men in dresses who rape children. Surely Hayden must know that at least a few of these men would like to see child rapists — and also their gal-pals — hanged. In public. That’s no joke.

        But what would be funny is if you, Hayden et al., went and barged into THEIR discussions and told them that they are old, ugly, jealous and bigoted for “misgendering” your child-raping-human-rights activist friends. I dare you.

      • ImNoCissie Says:

        Hahahahah, writing a blog that reports on actual news is forcing an opinion on people, but insisting that the world needs to call biological men “she” and getting the force of law to allow men in wigs into our bathrooms and other private spaces is not forcing opinions on anyone.

        Delusional.

        Wanna talk force, RAPISTS force stuff on people, stuff that is a lot more unpleasant and damaging than being called “he”, sir.


      • I wish there was a real intern/work experience position here Gallus, I would work for you in a heartbeat!

    • Ashland Avenue Says:

      “Disrespecting” a child rapist and the men who excuse and support him! My God, how can I live with myself? Using their real names and “misgendering” them! O THE HUMANITY.

      I notice you also can’t help but go after the supposed appearance of the women who post here – nice ageism and misogyny there. You do realize there are several men who post here as well? Yet you didn’t attack them. Surprise, surprise.

    “Just thought I’d waste a few minutes calling you what you are….a sad bunch of middle aged, haggard women who feel the need to bully others and force opinions on people.”

    In other words:

    “We rape kids, but you’re ugly.”

    Stay classy, trans activists!

    • morag99 Says:

      “We rape kids, but you’re ugly.”

      Yes, that’s a perfect paraphrase of Hayden’s comment. Another could be:

      “We rape kids, but you refuse to call men ‘she.'”

      Or:

      “We rape kids, but you hate men who rape kids and the people who defend men who rape kids, so you must be middle-aged, jealous bullies, or else, why would you criticize middle-aged, morally and physically ugly men who wear lipstick and who rape kids?”

      Totally devoid of sense. But, in the porn-soaked, fascist, sociopathic trans mind, feminist speech is equivalent to raping a child. Actually, it’s not even an equivalent, is it? Feminist speech is much, much WORSE than a man forcibly penetrating a child or a woman with his penis.

      Hayden (who also doesn’t know the dictionary definition of “haggard,” and thinks it’s an insult) is a morally-bankrupt, perverse, child-hating, woman-hating, rapist-loving shell of a human being.

      • neme Says:

        The straight white male autogynephiles look like frankensteins in lipstick. I don’t know if they really think they’re pretty girls, because they are delusional, or if they know how hideous, repellant and terrifying they are.

        I think they struggle with their delusional state, and project all their self-disgust onto any woman who sees them for what they really are.

        They think “old” is an insult because they hate that they never had the childhood they fantasize we had. They only value pink princess pedophile fantasy images of “female.” Real, adult women with experience and minds of our own scare the shit out of them. They can’t handle that feel either, so again they project and accuse women of violence we’ve never committed, of terrorising them when they’re the ones “tracking” and stalking us. It’s like they’re some psycho stranger chasing us down the street, shouting, “Stop following me!”


      • Someone posted on another thread about a relative who is a big barrel chested man who claimed they wore the same bra size (34). So yeah, there’s definitely a delusional factor here.

        And yeah, the notion of “old” as an insult. I’m a fifty year old woman who loves being a 50 year old woman. I’m bold, powerful and confident with no compunctions about calling bullshit when I see it. These dudes are universally hideous, and the notion that I, a real live woman, would envy a simalucrum, and a piss poor one at that would be laughable if so many of these mofos weren’t violent creeps.

I have been on a break and I have three hate crime cases on my computer of the five cases I was working on.

    Transgender Human Rights Institute Amy, regarding your last comment, we would like you to try an experiment . If it is not triggering for you, please research a reasonable number of randomly selected news articles of crimes committed against transgender people around the world and in the USA. Note and record where the race of the victim is specifically called out in the reports and if so, if there is consistency in the terms used, particularly in crimes reported in other countries. Please don’t guess or make assumptions. Assumptions are not reported facts. We would ask you to submit the data as incident reports to the TVTP tracker, but we don’t have that anymore. We hope the experiment will give you a different point of view to consider.

    Amy Wilhelm I have to admit I’m not entirely sure of the point you mean to make. I was referring specifically to the post on the TVTP Facebook page attacking *by name* a group of trans women of color protesting the Toronto Transgender Alliance raising their flag at last year’s TDoR event and banning discussion. I have been told that the THRI board approved that post, and I know it remained up until the page disappeared.

    Yesterday at 12:32am

    Tobi Hill-Meyer Question – does that mean that people of color who have had negative experiences with THRI that felt like racism will have their comments deleted if they raise conversation about such behavior?

    Not that I want to have that conversation right nor or right here, nor will I dive into it if you say it’s okay, but the way criticism and concerns from trans people of color have been deleted and hidden rather than given space to address them has been a big concern of mine. The cover up really can be worse than the crime, and even minor issues around race that could be simply addressed can quickly snowball into larger issues when the people raising those concerns feel silenced or punished for speaking up.

    Honestly, it’s made me afraid to participate with THRI on any level. Part of me is thinking even this comment will likely get deleted so what’s the point.
    18 hrs

    Rebecca Heineman You’re making a loaded comment. If your issue was with people formerly with THRI, then your point is moot. If you wish to complain for compaint’s sake on ANY TOPIC, you risk being deleted. This forum is about the issues, and if you have a problem, any suggestions on how to improve or correct the issue is welcomed with open arms. So, what SOLUTIONS to the problems you’re perceiving will you submit?
    18 hrs

    Tobi Hill-Meyer I’m doing my best not to make this loaded, I just honestly don’t know what will be considered as crossing a line. And honestly, I had hoped that the concern I had left with Ms Woolbert, but you told me yourself that it was a board approved decision. And I just don’t know who was posting on the THRI/TVTP facebook accounts, if they are still a part of the organization or not, or if their posts were considered organization decisions or are individual reactions in the moment.

    All I’m doing is saying that the context here makes it feel unsafe to speak openly about the issue. I can’t easily propose solutions to the problem when I fear saying the wrong thing or even being interpreted as hostile will get me shut down, but here’s a few things I would suggest that could help.

    #1 – Don’t delete comments because they contain criticism or otherwise don’t agree with the THRI leadership.
    #2 – Make a very clear (and limited) policy for when comments will be deleted. We can all agree that threats of violence are inappropriate. Obviously anti-trans sentiment from cis people is also not okay. But comment moderation should not be used to enforce a viewpoint or narrative on a thread.
    #3 – Press releases, links, and general announcements are great for being posted on an org page. Comments or arguments occurring in real time should be made from personal accounts so that outsiders can tell who is speaking.
    #4 – Create a specific process for addressing grievances. When people don’t have a way of addressing concerns, they bring them to the group wherever they can (and sometimes it’s off topic). Having a process to address concerns can help people feel heard and worked with rather than shut out and silenced.
    #5 – Make an organizational understanding that when a person of color says “Woah that feels racist” or something along those lines that is not a personal attack or a form of violence. It should not be referred to as an attack or as violence. It should not be dealt with or shut down the way comments containing attacks or violence are shut down.

    18 hrs

    Tobi Hill-Meyer Is it really not recoverable? The THRI post below makes it sound like it was the target of a hacking attack, but that’s not the case, is it? I don’t know all the technical things, but if the data is intact and the only problem is that it’s on your former ED’s server, can’t she just do a file transfer to a new server owned by THRI? My hosting company has helped me do stuff like that a couple times before, it shouldn’t be too difficult.

    Rebecca Heineman The website was created, written and maintained by the former executive director of THRI. The TVTP website was never owned or controlled by THRI. After the debacle, the owner/creator/maintainer of the TVTP website decided on her own accord to pack up and go home, THRI had no recourse.
    17 hrs

    Rebecca Heineman On the subject of transfer, it would have been difficult. It was running proprietary code on a custom built server so just doing a file transfer would be woefully insufficient. I’m a software engineer, and I recognize that there was at least 200 man hours in creating the site and another 1,000 man hours in creating the data that was recorded at the time of the shutdown. Not trivial.

    Tobi Hill-Meyer Precisely because there was so much put into it, it just feels like there should be some effort to recover it. It might not be easy, but couldn’t she just donate her server – or at least sell it – to THRI? If you don’t have the funds to buy it from her, I’m sure we could do a fundraiser. Either way, this seems like a real lesson in structuring an organization so it’s not completely reliant on one person.

    Amber DeLora Look, EVERYONE, including the terfs out here have some sort of past. If a person has a criminal past, if they’ve done their time and have not repeated the same offense again, they should be able to reintegrate into society and live their lives. As far as I can tell, the conviction of record was more than two decades ago.

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
    Seattle, WA (January 12, 2015) – Allison Woolbert was known as a passionate advocate of and activist for human rights within the bisexual and transgender communities. Her personal project, the Transgender Violence Tracking Portal (TVTP), was a much-needed tool that could have been used to educate people around the world about the risks of violence to the transgender people in every country.
    Regrettably, the information about Allison Woolbert’s past that recently came to light should have been submitted to the Board of Trustees at the time of her appointment as Executive Director. That information represented a direct risk to the mission of the organization. The board itself erred in that it did not vet her background or that of any other board candidate for potential liability risks.
    Our initial decision to retain Allison Woolbert as Executive Director was based on board members’ personal interaction with her, on her skills, and trust in her good intentions and passion. That decision was flawed. We acted both in haste and in error to retain her before fully knowing the extent of her past crimes. We erred as a board in that we put our friendship and trust ahead of the trauma felt by victims of sexual assault, and potentially ahead of the rights, reputation, and safety of the very people our organization was intended to serve, the transgender community. Seen in that light, the damage to the reputation and effectiveness of our organization is a small thing.
    Allison Woolbert stepped down from her position in the Transgender Human Rights Institute (THRI) rather than be the catalyst for continued damage. She is no longer a part of the THRI in any capacity, including the TVTP, which has been removed from service.
    The incalculable loss incurred by the shutdown of the TVTP may be the single greatest fallout from the events of the past week. It was not the choice of the THRI to close down the TVTP; the portal was not the property of the THRI and we did not have operating authority over it. Our organization oversaw its operation in an advisory capacity as a part of our mission; but it, the proprietary software that created it, the data it contained, the equipment that hosted it, and the personnel who maintained and managed it were not our property or employees. It was created, operated and maintained at great personal, financial, and emotional expense by its creator.
    The THRI currently has neither the resources to acquire, operate or host the Portal if it were for sale, nor the technical expertise to recreate, manage or operate a similar tool. We recognize the loss that this represents to the community, but understand why its creator might wish to disengage entirely from the community that this tool supported.
    The Board of Trustees will be meeting to evaluate the organization’s future, its mission and projects in light of the recent events. All assets of the THRI, including financial, intellectual and physical properties, remain the property of the organization.
    Donations made to the THRI (a 501(c)3 corporation) will be used to fund its operation.
    Board of Trustees,
    Transgender Human Rights Institute

    Marina Brown You really should have created that portal with Open Source Software rather than proprietary stuff. If you restart, please use an open source model AND post ALL your code on github so the community can improve it.

    It was a major statistical mistake not to collect data on the identities of the victims AND the assailants. You need to know ALL this data. Also – collecting number of assailants is important as multiple assailants shows a real danger. (The FBI agrees with this)

    Globaleaks is decent software for setting stuff like this up.

    ALSO – the portal had no way for people to anonymise their connections. In countries like Russia or Saudi Arabia, a connection to a database like this could get someone killed.

    THINK.

    PS – where the nearly 5,000 raised for the project ? As an organization you have the right to software created for your project.

    Transgender Human Rights Institute We appreciate the suggestions regarding the Portal. Should we consider rebuilding the tool, we will consult professionals with the appropriate skill sets.

    As noted, the THRI did not create, own, fund or operate the portal. This is a popular misconception. Our organization came into being after its creation and had no involvement in its day to day operation, other than to provide our time as case researchers when possible. Ownership was never transferred to the organization. The money raised by the kickstarter was spent for it’s creation, server space, and connection bandwidth, and initial data loading, including thousands of historical cases, and the constant need to keep it accessible for users, but limit vulnerability from outside sources.

    Assailant data is valuable and not always available, particularly since so many crimes against transgender people go unsolved. Our society is victim-focused. Gathering assailant data as it is available would be a good thing.

    Race is not as easily solved. Shifting to the personal point of view here, I reported and did initial research from news reports on a number of incidents to the portal; crimes committed in the USA and around the world as they came to my attention. Leelah’s was one of them. My personal experience was that news articles did not specifically say things like “X” was black or white, or native American, or a person of color. We could make assumptions, but assumptions are not facts. Followup on these cases was further restricted by not having enough volunteers to work as researchers on cases to contact police departments, coroners offices, court houses, etc. to gather followup data. Early on, the TVTP made it a point to warn transgender volunteers that case research could be both psychologically damaging and/or triggering for emotionally vulnerable people.

    Regarding Leelah’s Law, this project was always an effort of more than just the THRI and the push towards presentation of the petition and then developing the plan for what happens afterwards will continue. The Leelah’s Law campaign will continue, though the parties involved may need to change.

    Marina Brown The operation of TVTP and THRI were seemingly comingled. As this facebook page shows, most of the press releases came out of TVTP. This indicates that the operation of the two projects were mingled in some manner.

    I find it unconscionable that a project that was assisted and created by community volunteers and community money is being claimed as the sole property of one person. The TVTP was FUNDED by the community but one individual is claiming it as her sole property.

    As a seasoned computer professional it boggles the mind that such a project required almost 5000 dollars. I have set up similar projects for an openness and transparency initiative. I spent perhaps 14 hours total doing the writing for the site. The data portal perhaps took 2 hours. I used jekyll for the website templating engine and i used globaleaks for the portal software which runs as a tor hidden service.

    As i stated earlier, ruby on rails would be even faster.

    As far as race, ‘Unknown’ or ‘Unclear’ would suffice for a descriptor where it was not known. Having race and profession would be of obvious benefit. For example if someone is killing black trans sexworkers you could do the following SQL query:

    Select name, state, city country from database where victim.race = ‘Black’ and victim.profession = ‘sexworker’;

    That query gives you a lot of info. If you intentionally leave out descriptors you degrade the information.

    I suggest profession, hair color, eye color and all the data used by the FBI in tracking violent crimes be used with gender identity added on in
    greater details

    These are hard criticisms i am making but i only spend the time making them because i feel that this type of portal could be invaluable.
    1 · 23 mins

    Marina Brown Lastly, if you recreate the portal do not make the mistake of not tracking race or other identifiable things about victims and perpetrators.

    Serial killers or serial attackers often attack people who look similarly or who have similar traits. I would like this portal to be as useful as possible.

    Tobi Hill-Meyer It’s been a rough week and I’m still trying to piece together different parts of this. You say it wasn’t THRI’s decision to close down the portal — then who’s decision was it? Was it the TVTP board’s decision? Was there a TVTP board or was it just Allison? Was it Allison’s decision?

    As one of the kickstarter backers of the portal, I’d like to know what exactly happened to it and why it can’t be resurrected. If THRI can’t afford to purchase it, how much is it? A community fundraiser to save the portal might surprise you in how much it could raise. Is it really too expensive, or is Allison refusing to sell it? Why was an important community resource such as this owned by an individual person rather than the non-profit overseeing it’s operation?

    Just that dynamic of having a non-profit overseeing and putting resources toward something that the ED now claims sole ownership of (something of so much value that the non-profit can’t afford to buy it back) raises concerns of embezzlement. There’s probably a reasonable explanation and that’s not what’s happening here, but without details those are the questions that get raised. With a major LGBT org and the trans health clinic they ran having shut down over ED embezzlement just a few years ago, it’s something we have to be aware of.

    Marina Brown Not to belabor the point but i personally have 5 cloud servers 4 of which would be sufficient to host a portal like the TVTP website AND data portal. I pay about $9/month for most of them. I expect the original portal was using windows software which is expensive and a bit more difficult to host but a replacement portal using open source software could be very lightweight and inexpensive.

    Marina Brown I can’t speak for the organization but the Leelah’s law effort was set up absolutely wrong. Medicine is in the domain of the states to regulate. The petition going to the President was impressive but it would not do much. One would need to pressure various states. A lot of this christian counseling is done under the guise of freedom of religion.

    This issue has been tacked before and it is a very hard one.

    I think the best way to hit it is the same way the SPLC hits hate groups – by suing reparative therapists that do harm.

    Rebecca Heineman Marina, if you feel suing the therapists is the right thing to do, then do so. However, you will find in a matter of minutes just how expensive what you’re suggesting is. If you have a giant bank account or are a lawyer or can find a lawyer you can afford, I would applaud your efforts in sending these people to court. I for one am not a lawyer, nor can I afford one, so other methods need to be employed from my end.

      Wow. What a clusterfuck.

      There are a lot of very good points made there regarding how it turned out this “institution” was really set up.

      “We recognize the loss that this represents to the community, but understand why its creator might wish to disengage entirely from the community that this tool supported.” Why, because people were being “mean” to him about his past? Because lots of people don’t think that a child rapist has any place counseling victims of violence? I know, the sheer nerve of them!

      Then there’s this, from “Amber” {eye roll} DeLora: “Look, EVERYONE, including the terfs out here have some sort of past. If a person has a criminal past, if they’ve done their time and have not repeated the same offense again, they should be able to reintegrate into society and live their lives. As far as I can tell, the conviction of record was more than two decades ago.” So very generous of “Amber.” I actually agree with him – to a degree. But what Woolbert did goes waaaaaay beyond what should be forgiven in the same manner as, say, shoplifting or even burglary. Too bad “Amber” is simply too unintelligent to grasp nuances like that. Woolbert was what, pushing 30 years of age when he decided to rape a child? He was no kid doing something stupid, and the passage of time shouldn’t matter one whit.

      Basically all I see there is a bunch of whining about losing their website, but no one seems at all upset about what Woolbert did, or how he never came clean about his past until he was forced to. And of course, nothing about how he loves to dox those he disagrees with and harass them and how that is a form of violence unto itself. Unbelievable.


      • Obviously, what crimes should be “forgotten” is contingent upon the nature of the crime. Rape of all kinds is horrific, but most normal people are particularly disgusted by child rape. Rape of all kinds has a particularly high recidivism rate. So really we don’t know that this guy hasn’t reoffended, we just know he hasn’t BEEN CAUGHT. Factor in the role this guy sought for himself in a VERY VULNERABLE community, especially young people.

    Administrator Sherrie Larch:
    I am no longer associated with Allison Woolbert if you want to leave this page that is OK but I will miss you and good luck finding Allison, she is gone, disappeared last night. I have been blocked on Facebook from both her accounts and the groups and page is gone and I have no access to Trans* Violence Tracking Portal or Terf Tracker (both sites are gone). TERF Tracker’s blog site is still up but I do not have the password, its been changed, so cannot delete my articles. Trans* Violence Tracking Portal will be back hopefully at sometime after they retrieve everything but do not know if I will retain my administrator role and right now I am just in shock and out of it completely. I am shocked that Allison could keep such a horrible and tragic secret and I hope the victim is doing good and has had a good life. Sexual abuse/rape of any kind is something a victim never gets over and it is something I cannot forgive. My rule. I am including screen shots of part of our last conversion, you be the judge if you think Allison has learned anything after having her own doxxing was used on her. I want to make this page or if we have to move to another page, a place that is safe for everyone. We need that. And if Trans* Violence Tracking Portal get back up and running they can use this page to report missing people and hate crime alerts. I am still waiting for Facebook’s response, its like the cable man could be here anytime, and hoping I get the name I picked out, if they don’t this page will be moving to new page and will be deleted in an allotted time so everyone can move with it.
    Thank You for sticking around if you choose.

    • Ashland Avenue Says:

      I see Woolbert still thinks of this as an “attack.” He still views himself as a victim! Those meanies, “dredging up his past to use as a weapon”! Dude, YOU’RE A RAPIST. A CHILD RAPIST. The only victim was the child you chose to attack. Then he has the gall to call someone else “delusional.” Smdh, indeed.

  36. Lemoni Says:

    The database was probably populated with a lot of ‘fake’ entries. If Allison really cared about trans people he should have let them keep their portal. Now he can manipulate the database as he sees fit. Perhaps other males similar to him used the portal to confirm their new “women’s” names to cover up more systematic abuse. The FBI should be investigating him not feminists who are looking after the victims so they are named as victims instead of the perps who are now referred to by female pronouns without any mention of their dead names. Lovely cover for abusers.


  37. I just hope this fiasco will demonstrate for them the importance of background checks, especially for things like their suicide hotline. Even a cursory google search demonstrates that there are predators all too willing to go underground in their communities. Much as they loathe gatekeeping it’s a crucial component of any real social service work. You can’t risk having your most vulnerable population exploited by programs that are supposed to be helping them.

    • Lemoni Says:

      The whole Trans project is abusive, misogynist homophobic and exploitative. There are no winners in the end. Background checks : military, criminal , violent are all censored or hidden by dead names and polished by the ‘ transparent’ spray of a willing press and celebrity status. Narcism by proxy in the end with too many willing accomplices. Mental illness projects developed by the insane using children to cover their recognisable anomalies.

    • kesher Says:

      There are a lot of anecdotes about the pigs in wigs of the “community” preying on trans girls and trans boys alike. The only people who don’t know about this, or are unwilling to confront it, are the “allies” who think every trans woman is Laverne Cox, the trans boys and trans girls themselves who haven’t been victimized yet, and the predators (and their apologists) themselves. Gender critical trans women seem to be the only people in the community willing to confront this, and they’re dismissed/vilified as TERFs.

      It seriously makes me wonder if the high rape rates of trans people can be largely attributed to supposedly trans perpetrators.

  38. Rosemary Says:

    In addition to the issues raised in this comprehensive post (thanks, GM) and all of these excellent comments, one thing I can’t get over is how Woolbert somehow thought he would never be found out. He gleefully participates in the doxxing of women and feminists, while sitting on a huge secret about his own history, using the same last name that his criminal record is under. Is he really delusional enough to think that his “rebirth” magically erases the past, or is this just more trans narcissism?

    • GallusMag Says:

      Good question. And don’t forget he put Parker Molloy on his trans violence tracker when Chad had one of his rage fits and told a very annoying person to drink bleach and die in a private conversation.

      Based on the only comments Allison has made since he was exposed (the ones directed to Sherri Larch in the screencaps above) my guess is, he doesn’t think what he did- raping a child- is “that bad”. Or… that time (and/or his trannification) has somehow erased it for him, so he assumes time erases it for others. Either way he seems to feel -for whatever bizarre reason, that people should not be upset to know this about him. Seems completely sociopathic.

      • kesher Says:

        The reason isn’t that bizarre if you’re at all familiar with the typical behavior and excuses of sex predators. Sex predators, and pedophiles in particular, excel at believing themselves to be the real victims.

      • jnkgreene Says:

        When Parker Molloy was placed on the tracker many in the trans community asked that it be taken down. Allison’s response was that she and her group knew what was best and that it would not be taken down. In other words, Allison in her hubris felt that destroying some one on the internet was a justifiable action even though what happened was a private matter between two people.

        And now it has come out that Allison Woolbert is a rapist of a child, and now she wants forgiveness? Serious! “She” wants mercy over this and you know what? “She” destroyed a life when “she” took an innocent person and with a weapon raped that person. A life sentence was meted out to a child because THIS man had to get his rocks off.

        This person should be on a sex offender registry. This persons name change and sex identifier should be reversed and I hope you all raise hell over this.

        I know you all feel that people like myself who transitioned are really men and that is ok with me. It does not bother me. Some say it should, but it does not and here is why. I know who I am and I have nothing to prove. I’m happy with who I am now. I’m not going to stand in solidarity with a rapist. And you are right, Woolbert does not give a damn about women’s spaces. Not one wit because Woolbert only thinks of Woolbert and all this activism of Woolbert was for one thing only, MALE socialized ego.

        You can tell when you read Woolbert’s writings on his blog that it is all about HIM. Bottom line is, the TRANS community needs to vet these people and toss them out.


  39. I hope this child molesting fuck gets painful arse cancer and hemorrhoids.

  40. Jennie Says:

    Maybe this MAN Woolbert was actually HIDING as a “woman” from his sordid past? Who knows what is on these creepy people’s minds! Wow, he really must have had quite a life to be harassing women online! (Sarcasm)….Clearly, he wanted to be a woman, but deep down, he despised us! I have looked at the sex offender registry online. What a f**king nightmare. Of course, the offenders are all men (with a few exceptions, of course.) Reading about those atrocious crimes that these men committed against human beings really makes me think. Mostly all are against girls and women. This proves how much us women are hated in society by men. They KNOW that they will face prison time and be forced to register on the sex offender registry for all to see, BUT THEY COMMIT THE CRIME ANYWAYS! That speaks volumes of how much us women are loathed in this patriarchal society! We are NOT safe. Be aware, and BEWARE!

      “misgendered one woman” “dead named two others”. = CRAZY TALK. You’re creepy males with an out of control fetish. There is no such thing as “misgendering” or “dead names”. See a mental health professional and stop watching so much porn.


      • This bizarre vocabulary is delusional e.g. “misgendered” and “dead named”. I am wondering how absurd this will get before there is some return to rationality. The fact that one is considered a radical feminist TERF for expressing distaste for aberrant behavior (e.g. the male pedophile who assaulted and violated a 14 year old girl) is absurd. There’s nothing radical about recognizing that something is really wrong about defending such behavior.

    • kesher Says:

      So a man who orally, vaginally, and anally raped a 14-year-old girl on multiple occasions is more human, in your eyes, than a woman who correctly identifies that man’s name and sex.

      You can put a dress on a man, but you can’t make him stop being a rape apologist male supremacist.

    • Chippy Says:

      @Ura Manfuqa

      Your moral compass went bonkers. Rape is evil. How you can possibly equate calling a person with a penis, a man (accurate description btw), with your defense of a child rapist is exactly what the lowest lifeform on the planet does.

      Ya see, the lowest lifeform is a virus… a virus that inserts itself into healthy cells and makes their replication, a twisted version of itself spreading itself throughout the body to cause pain and death. That’s what you’re doing. You’re inserting a twisted version of what it means to be a woman into normally healthy dialogues about women and creating a focus on a twisted version of being woman. A twisted version so painful and horrible, you’d excuse child rape for the sake of defending a doomed agenda and an unachievable phantasm. That you would ignore real pain, real hurts, real crimes, that’s the lowlife you are.


  46. Wow. Not a surprise that a sicko who hunted down and advocated the terrorizing of women who disagreed with them would be this sick too.
