Transwoman Activist Cherno Biko confesses to Raping a Transman

Video of the Rapist [NOTICE: Biko pulled this video offline July 26 after this article was published]

 

Transwoman activist Cherno Biko, a 24 year old male from Ohio, confessed to raping a female “transman” because he wanted to impregnate her and force her to bear his offspring. The confession was posted publicly on Medium.com and titled “Overcoming Sexual Assault”:

The whole piece reads as a long non-pology, quickly shifting focus from Biko’s act of rape to descriptions of his own childhood abuse, and a heroic account of his own activism in the transwoman community. He published the piece without consulting or notifying the victim.

An excerpt:

“Our relationship existed largely online and we bonded over all the little things only black trans folks can understand. After years of searching, I thought I found the second piece to the holy trinity I wanted to create, complete with a black trans man and our black non-binary baby.

I was wrong. He made it clear to me that some trans men do not wish to carry children and it’s not ok to fetishize them in that way. The first time we had sex I can barely remember, as it followed a night of drinking and smoking but I know that we broke two of the most important rules… consent and safe sex. When he told me that he felt used and violated, I immediately apologized and offered to support in whatever way I could.”

According to the victim, who responded publicly at length on twitter, the two of them barely knew each other. After messaging each other on social media they met in real life on March 26 of this year and agreed to have heterosexual intercourse. Suddenly in mid deed Cherno Biko whispered in the transman’s ear “I want you to have my babies”. He then reached down and pulled the condom off of his penis and proceeded to forcibly rape and ejaculate into the victim, attempting to cause an unwanted pregnancy.

Biko writes in his post:

“I was afraid that I had become the thing I feared the most, an abuser. And technically I did. I was filled with shame and guilt. In the days following I wanted to respond in all the ways my abuser didn’t. I listened more than I shared. I validated their feelings and answered all of the questions. I gave them space, read: “they blocked me on twitter.” But in April when their text messages became threatening and unhealthy I blocked their number, knowing that they would call me out on social media. After all it’s where we met but I was worried about the implications it would have on the movement. I didn’t want to become the ammunition for our enemies to keep framing folks like us as predators who need to be kept out of public bathrooms.”

The transman victim whom Biko raped and tried to forcibly impregnate posted screen caps of these supposedly “threatening and unhealthy” responses to being raped. They involved the perpetrator being confronted over his unwillingness to pay for the victim’s PEP [Post Exposure Prophylaxis] prescription to prevent HIV infection in the victim.

According to the CDC:

“PEP (post-exposure prophylaxis) means taking antiretroviral medicines (ART) after being potentially exposed to HIV to prevent becoming infected.

PEP should be used only in emergency situations and must be started within 72 hours after a recent possible exposure to HIV.”

The screencaps show Biko telling his victim – who lives in a rural area- that she should travel to a major metropolitan area and try to locate a city clinic that provides the medication for free. Biko stated, “It’s not that I don’t care I just don’t have the coin right now.” The cost was $80.

Cherno Biko currently resides in Brooklyn where he serves as co-chair to the Young Women’s Advisory Board of the New York City Council.

    This just proves how sick and messed up the trans movement, especially the M2Fs really are. And that was a bloviating non-apology.

    • gchild Says:

      Agree Bishopioan. I can’t fathom this shit. Its too perverse.

      GM, you nailed it about the weird bait-switch between nonapologizing and the abuse excuse.

      Biko’s sex assault description reads like an honest mistake, an unfortunate miscalculation, an innocent drug induced lapse in judgement. But the description of the child sex abuse started off like a pornographic story (“…the first time I tasted cum”).

      It seemed intentional. Either to make the abuse excuse more valid, or to trigger arousal (and therefore guilt and therefore complicity) which is typical of groomers (and pornographers).

      Biko seems to be trying to groom society into tolerating and embracing sex offenders as valid leaders/members of the “movement (s)” by “creating a language” of redemption (I’m sorry I sexually violated you…kinda), so they can carry out their mission to gain unlimited access to the very people they tend to sexually violate.

      And to season this pot of shit stew with BLM makes its all worse. Much, much worse.

      I. Am. Apalled.

      • nonny Says:

        gchild- for real! Thanks for calling out the porno sounding description, and the whole tone of “sorry I maybe acted kinda like a rapist since I’ve had a rough life😦 but you see I was real upset about being oppressed and so I tripped and my dick fell into a woman who happened to be there, oops :(( maybe she’ll get a little bit pregnant ;)”


    • We have to stop pretending that they are female, with terms like mtf. They are men, who want to dress feminine and the preferred terminology is mtt or male to trans. They are not women and there are a lot of women who are upset with any woman calling a man a woman of any kind.

      • lr1290 Says:

        I’ve started calling them men who think they’re women. Or maybe men who wish they were women lol

      • Joshua Holiday Says:

        Fuck you dumbass. Though I in no way support Cherno and her actions, it’s because of people like you, that probably used and abused us as children and now are critical of us, that some of us have some issues now. However, our transition, into our true selves is NOT one of them

      • Sarah Says:

        In Cherno’s case his true self is a rapist. I like the way you call him and you “us” – way to identify with a rapist, pal.

      • kesher Says:

        Women are always responsible for men raping and abusing us. Right, “Joshua”? There’s a word for women like you who support male supremacy while getting literally nothing back from men (Cherno would happily rape you too, I’m certain) — useful idiot.

    • Drew Says:

      I don’t get why everyone here looks at one case and applies it to an entire community. One rape does not reflect a group of people. To be honest everyone here seem to be obsessed with trans people who mostly just want to live their lives in peace.

      • kesher Says:

        MTTs are just as likely to rape as men are. The reason we’re “obsessed” is because shitstains like you think were obligated to pretend a male rapist is a “woman” and has a right to swing his dick in women’s spaces. You want to live your lives in peace? Then leave women the fuck alone.

      • GallusMag Says:

        “One rape does not reflect a group of people. ”

        NOT ALL MEN are rapists, but all men – including transwomen- BENEFIT from male rape of women.

      • charlston Says:

        Hi Drew. I am not answering for anyone but myself. I think your question is naive.You are no more deserving than I am. As I have been told on and off for 10 yrs now, ‘Trans people are doing it hard’. What they fail to take into account is I could say the same.I am no longer just female. I am being told that in order for you to be raised up, I have to step aside, become less than I am. Every day I am told that peaceful co-existence is not possible unless I minimise my cis privilege.I don’t think I can take up less space than I am already using.
        You said ‘I don’t get why everyone here looks at one case and applies it to an entire community.’ I don’t care for that either however if you are honest you will admit that’s what happens when you look at me. I am labeled as natal or cis whether I agree to it or not and you expect me to suck it up and accept it.

        What does “cisgender” mean? It’s pretty much the polite way of saying “not transgender.” So I am no longer a woman, apparently I am also ‘not transgender’. Since when did I get demoted from less than a male to a plain ‘not’?

        Do you see that I was not allowed any say in this? If I object I am classified as transphobic. I have been called cis scum, less female than my mtf ex because I preferred to wear jeans. I have been doxed when I don’t agree, told I have no idea how being sidelined feels or how uncomfortable it feels to walk down the street and be stared at or harassed.
        Go to this link and read – 6 Reasons Why Being Called a Cis Person Is Not ‘Oppressive’.
        http://everydayfeminism.com/2015/01/being-called-cis-is-not-oppressive/
        Number 1 starts off with – It’s a Form of Realistic Classification, ‘Is that a lollipop on which you’re so enjoyably sucking’?

        Number 5 in part says … ‘being labeled cis isn’t the same as being labeled trans. You’re not suddenly at risk for being harassed, insulted, fired, raped, stabbed, chocked, shot, or abandoned for your cis identity in itself. To publicly label one of my kin as trans without their permission could quite truly kill them…’.

        Really, who wrote that? We are always at risk! The only 2 things on that list I have not experienced is being shot and stabbed but I can add- kicked in the stomach when pregnant, miscarriage, strangled with a tv aerial till I passed out, targeted when I am alone, loud discussions about my body from groups of random men who are, ‘just having some fun sweetie’, childhood sexual abuse, attempted kerbside kidnapping, employer sexual abuse, a handful of public bathroom assaults by men, my daughters 2 attempted abductions, date rape drugging, psychologists telling me my trans partner needs help and support so put them first and more. All just because of our gender. That has been my life since I was born.
        Never once did I think to do any of those abuses to another person either. Why would I when I know how it feels?

        You may say I am obsessed with Trans people. Obsessed is the wrong word. Overwhelmed is closer to how I feel. I am inundated with all things Trans. I can’t get away from it. Its on the TV, its in my news feed, and the new laws allowing men even greater access to whats left of my safe spaces make it my business.
        One rape does not reflect a group I agree, however its not really not just one rape is it ? I don’t know when it may happen or who it will be next time. Life experience tells me there is always a next time!
        Women are not your enemy. You are walking a mile in our shoes and you don’t like it. Until you did that you never gave womens situations a thought. Now you have had a taste of what we deal with on a daily basis, why not go to the source of the problem and help us fix the toxicity that has always been there instead of adding to it.

    Reblogged this on stop trans chauvinism.

  3. donesoverydone Says:

    Biko also works for the Sylvia River Law Project (SLRP) a trans right organization that likes to promote the rights of rapists to be housed in women’s prisons.

    This is the organization that Laverne Cox got in trouble for working with to lend support to women killer Robert “Michelle” Koselik and child rapist murderer Synthia China Blast.

    SLRP has a pretty sordid record for supporting the rights of convicted rapists to be legally female and to be housed in women’s prisons, so it looks like Biko fits right in.


  4. This is wrong on so many levels I don’t even know where to begin.

  5. Bob Doublin Says:

    The name he uses sounds like an appropriation of Steven Biko.

      • kesher Says:

        Is there any confirmation of this? So many MTFs lie about absolutely everything.

      • GallusMag Says:

        Not to my knowledge. It is unconfirmed. Also notable- Biko’s past claims of fake intersex status.

      • GallusMag Says:

        “Cherno Biko comes from a long ancestral line of public servants most notably uncle Steve Biko founder of the Black Conciousness Movement. Biko publicly came out as intersex/trans* last year on their 22nd birthday following a string of deaths that hit to close to home, including their oldest brother James E Lane and Cemia “CeCe” Dove a 20 yr old TWOC (Trans Woman of Color) who was stabbed over 40 times, tied to a cement block and dumped in a pond, where she rotted away for 3 months. Since then Biko was honored as one of this year’s Trans100 and has been #RedefiningRealness all over the nation in order to raise visibility and build community with #FolksLikeUs.

        One month after coming out on their 22nd birthday, Biko was fired from their job as a bank teller for attending the 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington fro Jobs & Freedom. Which turned out to be a blessing in disguise and allowing Biko to launch the #MrsBikoWorldTour. ”

      • Oak and Ash Says:

        “One month after coming out on their 22nd birthday, Biko was fired from their job as a bank teller for attending the 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington fro Jobs & Freedom.”

        The ambiguous wording seems to imply he was fired for political activism rather than unexcused absenteeism, while avoiding any statement that could be revealed as a lie.

        The original may be a trans-lation of: “One month after coming out on their 22nd birthday, Biko was fired from their job as a bank teller for not showing up when scheduled to work.”

      • red Says:

        Or maybe: “Biko was fired for not turning up for work and other sundry infractions. When consulting trans law about his just cause dismissal and oh yes I raped apparently somehow raped someone one night? But now what was I saying about me–was told all the excuses and pity-me whines he should immediately employ, and oh yes, do something for a charity. Sob.

        Let’s see proof of being related to Biko while he’s at it.

      • kesher Says:

        Unless he’s claiming a much more distant kinship as “uncle”, I’m going with his being a filthy liar.

        Steve Biko had three siblings. His eldest sister died at the age of 33 in South Africa (more than 20 years before this douchebag was born). The other two, as far as I can tell, stayed in South Africa and did not emigrate to the U.S.

      • kesher Says:

        But, you know, what’s another lie from a man lying about being a woman? It makes sense that so many of them lie about everything. In for a penny..


      • Cherno Biko and his family are from Columbus OH and Biko seems to be a maternal grandfather’s surname (the obit for James E Lane indicates Cherno’s mother and grandmother’s names.)

        Cherno is his birth name and seems his not afraid to rewrite his own history as in various places he claims he quit his job as bank teller to become an activist and have others fund his move to NYC.

        I do not understand how somebody with so little experience seems to be so feted and given credibility that isn’t due or owed. (Apart from you know…being male)

  6. I think I’ve missed something. Where is the confession about non-consensual sex ie rape and ripping off a condom? If I am going to highlight this, I’d like a bit more than secondary sources.

    • GallusMag Says:

      Then don’t. That’s why they call it reporting. No idea who you are and why I should care what you “highlight”. His confession is in his post. The victim’s testimony is public, but I’ve opted not to identify the victim by linking to it. My choice. Rest assured everything I’ve reported has been safely documented by me for my own protection as the reporter. Hope that helps.


      • Well, a reporter would normally suss out their source and their credibility. I’m struggling a bit with your journalistic credentials. Because they aren’t immediately obvious on gt.

        If you have no idea who I am, clearly you couldn’t be bothered to look. This, is the problem with feminism. We immediately start infighting. I want to make sure I am repeating something accurately, unlike, say, a recent Trump meme. What is wrong with asking that? You are aware of demation law?

        I accept you not wanting to identify any rape victim. But I wanted to check. Because it’s a transworld. And I don’t want shit for repeating fiction. You’re right. I’ll leave it alone, and not bother informing the rest of the ignorant world.

        Thanks though.

      • GallusMag Says:

        “This is the problem with feminism” folks! You knew there had to be one. Do fuck off, lazy. If you want to read the victim’s statements: Google it. That’s what I did! What the fuck is wrong with you? Also, there is no such thing as “demation”. Bye, Weirdo! Please don’t come back! Thanks.

      • red Says:

        Snort. I read its site. I still have no idea who this person is (not as important as it thinks it is) this person who wants to charge $220 hour for editing services but can’t spell or proofread and doesn’t know “demation” law differs from country to country. I think I’ll move to the U.K. and hang out my shingle.

    • michelle Says:

      what part of “The first time we had sex I can barely remember, as it followed a night of drinking and smoking but I know that we broke two of the most important rules… consent and safe sex.” does not read as an admission of rape to you?

      Those were HIS words…from the rapist’s keyboard to your eyes.

    • nonny Says:

      If the reporting here is insufficient for you to “highlight this,” then what would make Gallus pointing out the source for you any more sufficient? Wouldn’t it make more sense to hunt it out for yourself if you care so much? What is this passive-aggressive “a reporter would normally suss out their source and their credibility” comment? While that is true, it does not mean reporters post a comprehensive list of their sources, especially if they’re abused and raped women.
      Seriously, why the fuck does this need to be spelled out and explained? Stop pretending you’re such a pro (who apparently doesn’t know how to Google a thing) and that Gallus is some hapless idiot when you can’t even read between the lines and do your own research- instead barging in with this entitled and condescending attitude.
      This is probably the most exasperated and shitty comment I’ve ever left on the internet in my life- I generally don’t “do” comments sections- but seriously, what the fuck??

  7. carterabbie Says:

    So dude doesn’t have $80 for prophylaxis, but he’s running around trying to impregnate women against their will? What in the actual fuck is wrong with this picture? How does he plan to care for a child when he can’t even protect his partner from diseases?


  8. This story is sickening.

  9. GallusMag Says:

    Golly. Looks like Automattic is having some trouble with my site. Hopefully that will clear up soon. Pay no mind to the unwanted header photo at the top of the blog. Yeesh.

  10. dejavublonde Says:

    I am not exaggerating when I say: I saw this yesterday and almost threw up. There’s so much in there that I haven’t fully processed what I read and how I want to react with words to it. Every sentence deserves thought and a response but I don’t know that I’m the one to do it.

    That poor woman. Jesus christ. You know how ‘they’ say that all TERFS want all MtoTrans dead? Maybe not all but no tears would be shed by me if this one dropped dead of natural causes in the near future. All the tears have been spent on that woman he raped in an attempt at reproductive rape.

    • red Says:

      Well, if you’re on FB get onto those public sites, media sites and drop your bon mots in.

      • dejavublonde Says:

        bon mots? I don’t find this a laughing matter. I will assume you mean something else and didn’t mean offense to me.

      • red Says:

        You find that offensive? New to the ‘net are you?

        It’s common parlance in my neck of the woods. Just, you know, ordinary vernacular. Do check out FB or wherever you can comment and get this moving. It’s what I do.

  11. Sam Moon Says:

    Thank you for covering this Gallus. So many victims of male-to-trans (trans”women”) have their rape pushed under the rug so the movement’s secrets won’t be exposed. I saw that happening first-hand. Sunlight is the best disinfectant.

  12. IronBatMaiden Says:

    I just about threw up reading that. What a sick bastard!! Remind me again why modern liberals sweep this shit under the rug when they’re supposedly so against rape culture?

    But then again, these are the same liberals who cried “racism” when those poor women in Cologne who got raped told the authorities that their rapists were Arab and North African.

    Pfft.

  13. Artemis_Jade Says:

    Is there a generational change, or attitudinal change, going on within the trans community? I’m startled by the honesty of this guy in admitting he’s a rapist, just as I was startled by Stefonee’s honesty about his sexual fetishism, and by that guy who was arrested in Target and told police he goes into the women’s dressing room to perv on women ‘for the same reason men look at porn.’ I’m so used to the Juan ‘Julia’ Serrano type of trans pseudo-intellectual who expends so much energy denying the sexual component that drives MTT transgenderism. These new guys make Serrano look outdated and puritanical! They come right out and talk about their sexual proclivities and seem confident that they will get away with it. Serrano on the other hand seemed terrified that the public would figure out that gender identity is NOT totally separate from sexuality.

    • kesher Says:

      They’re probably getting more bold the more they see penis rights being bought wholesale by people who ought to know better. Trans is also a get-out-of-rape-free card among liberals, which I’m sure is contributing to this. How bad is Stefonknee really when liberals make excuses for rapists in dresses?

    • donesoverydone Says:

      I dont know if it’s honesty so much as male entitlement on a drunken bender. No one is checking these guys, what ever nonsense men who identify as women spew is accepted and all their bad behavior is accepted and excused. These men can rape their ex partners and have their right to be called she defended by all the press, they can commit vehicular manslaughter and then give a cheery hour long interview on national TV and natter on about their boring selves without anybody questioning their sanity. These men who identify as women have become comfortable and they think they can get away with anything.


    • Well said, I agree it’s a change. The first ever MTT enrolled @ Smith told all the women that even if he HAD discovered his “true self” through sissy porn, that “didn’t invalidate [his] identity as a woman.”

    • Trish Says:

      If actual physical sex is meaningless under trans ideology, then how could rape be nearly as bad as being called the “wrong” pronoun?

    • ephemeroptera Says:

      “generational change”

      I teach college-age millennials and have noticed that a significant minority think that anything that they don’t like is illegal.

      Could this be the inverse, where whatever they do can’t be illegal?

      This could be a reinforcing effect in addition to male privilege.

  16. rheapdx1 Says:

    @GallusMag This one almost caused me to lose the lunch, because this is way too damn sickening.

    In addition to this being one of those peak moments, it just goes to reinforce some of the very very ugly stereotypes that do exist. And yet….these folks are considered to be ‘worthy’ role models. To show to the media, that the ‘good works’ supersede the criminal past and present.

    Why the hell then is this piece of shit NOT IN JAIL???? What was committed and confessed to is a FELONY punishable by jail time. Ooops I forgot…..in t world, if one commits a crime….be it burglary, sexual assault, threaten the lives of government officials….they are heroes. And if they are of color and do this, as well as promote child prostitution….then they get to be in the mainstream. Or even work for legitimate firms, with the evil ‘forgiven’.

  17. Medi Says:

    Peak trans every day it seems, we need a new phrase for peak trans obviously. I tell so many women to read Gender Trender, and get the facts of what these guys do. Yup someone above mentioned that idiot Julia Serrano— he kept denying it was all about the fetish and sex with women. It is also all about the rape, and these men are just garden variety rapists in drag.

  18. Spinster Says:

    Found out about this today. Disgusting.

  19. petuniacat00 Says:

    Reblogged this on PetuniaCatLand and commented:
    This is it. This has to be the tipping point. Regardless of what any individual trans person might be like, the *movement* is about these predatory imbeciles. Same old abuser excuse-making. If trans we’re a real political movement they would clear these people out. They’re like the Donald Trump Campaign of (allegedly) progressive political movements. It’s a subculture. Pretending to be a political movement is part of its subcultural belief system.

    We must all call on political leaders who support the transgender movement to call on its leaders to denounce this guy.

  20. thisismeandonlyme Says:

    He is like a war criminal, using rape as a weapon against a woman to colonize and conquer the personal space of the woman’s uterus. He is simply a violent straight man.


  21. I can’t think of anything to say about this con man and disgusting, creepy weasel that hasn’t already been said, but I would like to go through his article because I can’t see how anyone could believe anything he says much less believe he actually cares about his victim. I don’t believe for a minute that he actually feels sorry for what he did. The article is confusing because it jumps back and forth from him admitting that he was an abuser, to expecting people to excuse his behavior because of his abuse growing up.

    “I was afraid that I had become the thing I feared the most, an abuser. And technically I did.”

    This is true. Notice how he says, ” And technically I did.” There is no technically about it. He admits it.

    Shame on the transman for blocking him on twitter, and refusing to have anything to do with him.

    “Our relationship existed largely online and we bonded over all the little things only black trans folks can understand. After years of searching, I thought I found the second piece to the holy trinity I wanted to create, complete with a black trans man and our black non-binary baby.”

    So, he met a transman (female) online, and to create the second piece to the holy trinity as he says, he already decided that he wanted this transman to mother his child. Silly little things like whether or not the woman wanted to be impregnated by him, prenatal care, child support, etc. never crossed his mind. What is the “holy trinity” that he wanted to create? I guess in his mind, the “holy trinity” is a black transwoman with him being the father, a black transman as mother, and “our black non-binary baby”. I’m not a black woman, and I can’t speak to the black experience, but do black women want “black non-binary babies”? Do black women, black FTMs included, exist to act as incubators for black transwomen (biological males) so that they can create some kind of “holy trinity”, and go about producing black non-binary babies? How does he know that the baby would have been “non-binary”, and what is a “non-binary baby”?

    She is the one who will have to carry the baby for nine months not him. Since mothers are female, I’m referring to the transman as she. If he, the father, doesn’t have a job, she is the one who will have to support the baby.

    “The first time we had sex I can barely remember, as it followed a night of drinking and smoking but I know that we broke two of the most important rules… consent and safe sex. When he told me that he felt used and violated, I immediately apologized and offered to support in whatever way I could.”

    Notice how this sleazy weasel and rapist phrases what he did. He states, “we” broke two of the most important rules…consent and safe sex.” It wasn’t “we”, it was he. If it wasn’t consensual, then it can’t be “we”. He admits that it wasn’t consensual, and he didn’t think about safe sex because he was looking for a transman to be the mother of his “black non-binary baby”. To top it off, he refuses to pay $80 for PEP [Post Exposure Prophylaxis] prescription to prevent HIV infection in the victim.

    This is from the CDC.

    *In 2013, a meta-analysis (Baral et al.) reported that the estimated HIV prevalence among transgender women was 22% in five high-income countries, including the United States.

    * Findings from a systematic review (Herbst et al.) of 29 published studies showed that 28% of transgender women had HIV infection (4 studies), while 12% of transgender women self-reported having HIV (18 studies). This discrepancy suggests many transgender women living with HIV don’t know their HIV status.

    * In the systematic review, black/African American transgender women were most likely to test HIV positive, compared to those of other races/ethnicities: 56% of black/African American transgender women had positive HIV test results compared to 17% of white or 16% of Hispanic/Latina transgender women.

    * Among the 3.3 million HIV testing events reported to CDC in 2013, the highest percentages of newly identified HIV-positive persons were among transgender persons..

    * Although HIV prevalence among transgender men is relatively low (0-3%), a 2011 study (Rowniak et al.) suggests that transgender men who have sex with men are at substantial risk for acquiring HIV.

    This is a dead serious subject because women of color are dying of AIDS. They are dying in Africa, and they are dying in the US. Black women know why this is happening. The selfish dude only thinks about himself and what is between his legs. Transwomen can call themselves “women”, but they are biological males, and most still have fully intact male genitalia. It’s an insult to the female sex for males who feel the need to impregnate women and to disregard safe sex to call themselves “women”. He is not a woman. He is just a selfish dude who admitted to breaking “ two of the most important rules… consent and safe sex.” There is nothing new here because men have been doing this since forever. We are supposed to forgive him and view him as special because he “identifies as a woman”. He disgusts me to no end.

    He really is a lying weasel. All people have to do is read the first few sentences, and then read the whole paragraph. He calls using and abusing a transman (female) “losing his virginity”. He admits that the transman felt used and violated.

    “In the midst of responding to all of this year’s tragedies I somehow found time to fall in love and lose my virginity. It was the first time I had sex… by choice. The first time in 25 years that I wasn’t forced to do it either by coercion or survival. Our relationship existed largely online and we bonded over all the little things only black trans folks can understand. After years of searching, I thought I found the second piece to the holy trinity I wanted to create, complete with a black trans man and our black non-binary baby. “

    Read the sentence,

    “The first time in 25 years that I wasn’t forced to do it either by coercion or survival. “

    He talks about being coerced into sex, then admits to trying to coerce a transman into having his baby. If he has had sex with males through coercion or for survival it’s sad, but he has a responsibility to his female partner. How many men has he had sex with? I don’t think women were coercing him into sex.
    If he has had sex with males through coercion or survival, then he is a disgusting, selfish piece of crap for not thinking about safe sex, not keeping a condom on it, and not protecting his female partner who he hoped would reproduce his “black non-binary baby”.

    Women are more likely to get HIV during vaginal sex than men are for several reasons. The vagina has a larger area (compared to the penis), that can be exposed to HIV-infected semen. Semen can stay in the vagina for days after sex, while men are only exposed to HIV-infected fluids during sex. Semen left in the vagina means a longer exposure to the virus for women.

    This is not some politically correct bullshi**. It’s real life.

    He states in his article,

    “One of my earliest memories is the taste of cum. I was only three years old the first time I was forced to swallow. For the next six years I was forced to keep that taste in my mouth…. Like so many black girls, I’ve tried to bury, deny and suppress being raped.”

    It’s really sad that he was raped, but this disgusting man admitted that he had non-consensual sex with a transman (female), and he wasn’t concerned about safe sex. In fact, he had dreams of fathering a child through regular old heterosexual intercourse.

    This half ass apology, or an attempt to rationalize his behavior, doesn’t impress me. I’m not buying anything he says. His lying, conniving face is on the same website as these beautiful young women of color.

    New York City Council Young Women’s Initiative needs to remove him before he victimizes another young person.

    • mbpandora50 Says:

      Thanks for the link to the CDC finding and those numbers. This definitely supports our Canadian Blood Services recent announcement on accepting blood donation restrictions. There was a huge hue and cry about it, of course, from the trans and gay community saying it’s behaviours and not people and the restrictions were discriminatory.

    • red Says:

      “It’s really sad that he was raped”. You take his word for that? It’s the usually trans narrative fishing for lefty tears. Don’t be sad. It didn’t happen.

      • ImNoCissie Says:

        Yeah and even if he was, adults are supposed to take responsibility for recovering from their own issues, not go out and inflict abuse on others. As they say in 12 step programs “You aren’t responsible for the disease but you ARE responsible for your recovery.”

      • nonny Says:

        I’ve heard (and told) very graphic details of sexual assault, and I don’t want to tell a possible victim how to act…..but honestly, I had a gut feeling of *** *RED FLAG* *** when reading his descriptions of forced oral sex. They sound more like the porn-sick fantasy material of a guy who is into things like, you know, forced feminization and…oh yeah, RAPING WOMEN.

    • juno Says:

      ^^^^This.

      ‘Holy Trinity’. Sounds like a trifecta of oppression that he can stage manage for money from patrons, lawsuits and probably the public purse as well.

      Cult behavior in action.

  22. australopithecene Says:

    He knows he won’t get any flack for this. And sure enough, no mainstream feminist has uttered a word. The trans movement has, overnight, made male violence and supremacy respectable to the liberal classes. it’s terrifying.

  23. Margie Says:

    Note that this fiend is a heterosexual by any definition. If you go by biological sex, he is a male who sought out a female for sex. If go by “gender identity,” “she” is a “woman” who sought out a “man” for sex. No matter how you look at it, this is a heterosexual. But “LGBT” tells lesbian, bisexual and gay youth that they are “one people” with this monster. It’s an abuse of LGB youth to tell them that their identity is bound up with people like this.

  24. Bev Jo Says:

    Thank you so much for finding this, Gallus Mag. So predictable. Man rapes women. Wants to impregnate women. Hates women. Not much new in that except for the games being played and if he goes to prison (unlikely), he’ll be put with women. If only all the women who support the trans cult would read this.

    Why do so many of these men claiming to be women choose to talk, look, and move like a gay male stereotype?

  25. MaryMacha Says:

    Always complain.

    Please write letters to Melissa Mark-Viverito, NYC city council woman, telling her to please remove this rapist from the NYC Young Women’s Advisory Council.

  26. nuclearnight Says:

    Gee if you don’t want women thinking you don’t belong in our bathrooms you could at the very least NOT be a rapist. Just goes to show how MALE this person is. Nothing, not even the “movement” he cares for so deeply comes before his dick.

    The more I learn about the trans the more revolted I become. That’s really all there is to say.

  29. Trish Says:

    If these two people have the sex organs they were born with, and use those organs to engage in heterosexual sex, in what way are either of them transgender?

    Living as if physical reality were irrelevant seems a dangerous proposition.

  30. Caroline Charlese Says:

    Boldness and trans-activist status probably took a big boost from Cherno’s 2 minutes of notoriety at The White House in March of 2015. Below YouTube clip appears to be from a The White House event (momentarily visible podium at far right):

  31. Zosha B Says:

    “A few months later I heard about Keyonna Blakeney. This was the second time in a 6 month period that I was being called down to Montgomery County Maryland to bury a young black trans who didn’t survive. Many movement leaders were hesitant to say her name because a week before her death she was arrested for statutory rape”
    So we have a rapist who supports other rapists.
    What an utterly reprehensible piece of shit.

    • thisismeandonlyme Says:

      Blakeney was charged with assaulting a 14 year old kid. Plus, his family was working to help him out and was supportive and was trying to get him off the streets. It is not like he was abandoned.

      This Biko writes like he had to bury the man himself, a she-ro who was there when no one else bothered. Which is baloney.

      What a self serving self promoting person. Even his rape is used for promotion.

  32. Smits Says:

    If there’s anything more self-obsessed, entitled, disgusting, and male than deciding that a woman you’ve known for all of five minutes is the perfect vessel to carry your imaginary child, it’s actually trying to get her pregnant via rape.

    Men have been doing this for centuries. It’s still a common form of domestic violence, forcing victims to be tied to their abusers forever through a child. The woman is a thing, an object, a vessel for creating another object (because you sure as shit know that this dude has absolutely no interest in nurturing and mopping up after the political icon of his ~black non-binary baby~, or in any way dealing with it as an actual person). That piece might as well have just read “I am male” over and over again for how loudly he is making it clear.

  33. Artemis_Jade Says:

    I appreciate the internal consistency of this guy’s statements. If a man can declare himself a woman when there is no biological basis for that claim, then why not claim to be intersex without actually having any diagnosed intersex condition? And why not claim to be related to Stephen Biko even though there is no blood relationship between yourself and Mr Biko.

  34. GallusMag Says:

    The rapist pulled his video. But we’ve all seen.

    • rheapdx1 Says:

      @GallusMag Will not say anything about the pic of this criminal. Insulting medical school cadavers by association would be mean. BUT the twitter posts after do show that the cult of personality around these shits shows, beyond all doubt…..these folks are morons. People who were in the micron deep end of the population lake.

      As I told some other folks elsewhere, in this climate….creeps like this make the far right’s case for them. Not a joke there…..but, this is more present on the horizon than some will want to admit.

    • donesoverydone Says:

      no, Im not going to respect a rapists preferred pronouns and fer fucks sake, Biko is not a woman rapist, he’s a man, fuck you and fuck yer “transphobia” call out bullshit trying shame women into calling a male rapist “she”. No.

    • emilygoddess Says:

      OF COURSE this dude is more upset about the “misgendering” of a rapist than he is about the rape. Males will always stick together.

    • gchild Says:

      “Yall think only men can be capable of rape”

      So because women are capable of rape in THEORY we must stop pointing out the fact that men commit rape in REALITY? Ignoring male pattern rape/violence works out well for ALL males doesn’t it?

      Not so much for females and children who are more vulnerable and victimized by males.

      And the fact that the trans community admits to having a high percentage of survivors of child rape/sexual abuse just keeps this never ending self feeding loop going. Again, works great for males.

  35. thisismeandonlyme Says:

    Yes he raped but you are so much worse! Pronoun violators! How dare you women call women women and men men? Violent violent people.

    • Trish Says:

      Yep – “verbal” violence is worse than physical assault. Sticks and stones are less powerful than “misgendering” someone who not only still has the sex organs he was born with, but tried to use them for their reproductive purpose.

  36. Shawn McClary Says:

    Ms. Biko is a self promoting, depraved individual who feels no rules or laws apply to her. In this article she admits to violating the Pulse crime scene in Orlando, FL.

    View story at Medium.com

    What a selfish human being. When all is said and done, she is a disgrace to the Transgender community at large. Her fate is sealed. SHAMEFUL!

    • thisismeandonlyme Says:

      Wow.

      He runs like an excited puppy to a mass murder scene, lays in lair outside of a mass murder scene, invades an active investigation, “faints” in the street, accuses the investigators and elected officials of politicizing the event (because, how dare elected officials speak about a mass murder in their own cities, to their own citizens, when HE, HE flew all the way down for the glory!), trashes “cis” and gay people, aggressively tries to crash speakers and basically colonized the entire mass murder for HIMSELF, his BEAUTIFUL FLOWER COVERED SELF BECAUSE HE NEEDS TO FEEL ALL THE DRAMA. HIM, LOOK AT ME!

      It is not mystery why another person’s body is just something to appropriate for the drama.

    • Ashland Avenue Says:

      HO. LEE. SHIT. Thanks for this link, Shawn. It reveals, in stark relief, the true extent of this guy Biko’s delusions: “I kept checking my email for the daily updates I was receiving from the White House” (of course he means the mass emails that the WH sends out to anyone who signs up, but hey, wording it his way makes him sound just so important). Or this: “I was in my solution seminar with Rhonesha Byng of Her Agenda and Brittany Packnett of Campaign Zero, preparing to brief the White House on my experience in Orlando..”

      Yeah, I’m sure the White House was just waiting with baited breath for Biko’s update. {Eye roll so hard I can see the back of my damn head}.

      And then when he dresses in all black (claiming it’s mourning attire) to sneak into an active crime scene. Why, WHY are MtT automatically taken seriously despite being absofuckinglutely crazy? Why is this delusional, vainglorious rapist ever given a platform anytime, anywhere?

      Ha ha! No need to answer. Of course I know why.

      P.S. I wish I could travel around the country on my mother’s dime instead of, yanno, working.

    • Nina Says:

      “Black Trans Folks Demand Economic Justice and Safety”

      …what about bodily justice and safety? This shitstain should be in prison. He 100% knows what he did is “technically” wrong but shows no remorse. How long til he decides to take another try at his “trifecta”? I don’t fit his victim profile but I still wouldn’t want to be within a hundred miles of this guy for my own safety.


  37. I am unable to view the video interview. Is there an external link it tells me I must sign in to view but I am already in.

  38. GallusMag Says:

    NOTICE: I have updated the post to reflect that Cherno Biko has now edited his post on Medium following publication of this article.

    You can view a copy of his original post here:
    https://maleviolence.files.wordpress.com/2016/07/overcoming-sexual-assault-e28094-medium.pdf

  39. GallusMag Says:

    Biko changed this:

    “Our relationship existed largely online and we bonded over all the
    little things only black trans folks can understand. After years of searching, I thought I found the second piece to the holy trinity I wanted to create, complete with a black trans man and our black non-binary baby.
    I was wrong. He made it clear to me that some trans men do not wish to carry children and it’s not ok to fetishize them in that way. The first time we had sex I can barely remember, as it followed a night of drinking and smoking but I know that we broke two of the most important rules… consent and safe sex.
    When he told me that he felt used and violated, I immediately apologized and offered to support in whatever way I could. ”

    To this:

    “Our relationship existed largely online and we bonded over all the little things only black trans folks can understand. After years of searching, I thought I found the second piece to the holy trinity I wanted to create, complete with a black trans man and our black non-binary baby.
    I was wrong. He made it clear to me that some trans men do not wish to carry children and it’s not ok to fetishize them in that way. Needless to say our relationship didn’t last long, on our first real netflix and chill, he suffered an asthma attack and we spent hours in the emergency room. The next week we had sex after a night of drinking and smoking but I know that I broke two of the most important rules… consent and safe sex. When he told me that he felt used and violated, I immediately stopped, apologized and offered to support in whatever way I could. I was afraid that I had become the thing I feared the most, an abuser and technically I did. I was filled with shame and guilt and questions. In hindsight I realized that it was impossible for either of us to consent, while under the influence.”

    ——————————

    And this:

    “Albeit I was afraid that I had become the thing I feared the most, an abuser. And technically I did. I was filled with shame and guilt. In the days following I wanted to respond in all the ways my abuser didn’t. I listened more than I shared. I validated their feelings and answered all of the questions. I gave them space, read: “they blocked me on twitter.” But in April when their text
    messages became threatening and unhealthy I blocked their number, knowing that they would call me out on social media. After all it’s where we met but I was worried about the implications it would have on the movement. I didn’t want to become the ammunition for our enemies to keep framing folks like us
    as predators who need to be kept out of public bathrooms. But to be honest, I’m relieved that I can now speak directly to these issues, from the perspective of both a victim and abuser.”

    To this:

    “In the days following my [sic] I wanted to respond in all the ways my abuser didn’t especially since I knew they were mentally unstable. I listened more than I shared. I validated their feelings and answered all of the questions. I gave them space, read: “they blocked me on twitter.” But when they began to ask for money that I didn’t have I knew that they would call me out on social media. After all it’s where we met but I was worried about the implications it would have on the movement. I didn’t want to become the ammunition for our enemies to keep framing folks like us as predators who need to be kept out of public bathrooms.
    As I began to learn more about consent I discovered that under NYS law it is impossible for a person who is mentally unstable to give consent. I struggled with this idea because it leaves no space for varying degrees of mental illness or for people who experience mental illness but have never been diagnosed like myself. I knew I wasn’t a rapist, but what was I now? I had to be honest with myself and admit that I diidn’t have all the answers. I had to get my ego out of the way and ask for help.”

    • GallusMag Says:

      What a piece of work. This guy never stops.

      • rheapdx1 Says:

        @GallusMag I thought that this crap had reached new lows with the other displays of malignant narcissism over the past few months. But this shit did …which is on the same track as others in the community who are rapists, abusers, murderers…is even more reprehensible, in that this shit has bragged about it’s assault on another person. Like this is some kind of goddamned trophy.

        As for the person posting in glowing terms about another fellow rapist, this shows…once again, what kind of mindset is ‘valued’ in the community. Can anyone….again….be blamed for (especially if they are t POC’s) for not wanting to have anything to do with these criminals [let’s call these creeps what they are…criminals] for fear of being grouped with them? No…not in the least. But those who do, are far and few between. Like one of the smallest clubs in the world.

        This just compounds with the levels of sickening activity that is mentioned in other social media corners. If this was any other group that engaged in this (as in the links sent over via another site) there would calls for these cretins to be locked away…in jail or in a place which would make Willowbrook look mild by comparison (those not familiar with the name….it was an infamous mental health facility in NYC). In the case of the latter….placing the snowflakes there would not be cruel….it would be justice, via another means.

      • lr1290 Says:

        Thank you for documenting this, GM. Unbelievable.

      • Ashland Avenue Says:

        Indeed, Gallus. Thank you for exposing this.

      • gchild Says:

        So, he revised it to emphasize the fact that the transman is a crazy, blackmailing gold digger?

        Funny how he uses FEMALE stereotypes (crazy, money hungry, conniving) that work so well…like in a courtroom for the tiny percent of rape cases that make it to trial.

    • LC Says:

      Amazing. What an asshole.

      • rheapdx1 Says:

        @LC Yep….this is disgusting…..as is the article that is linked in the twitter feed about this creep staging a ‘die-in’.

        The more one sees of how this community of creeps works…the more one becomes convinced they….for the most part…are criminal and cover for same, en masse. If I were a parent and let’s say my kids were LGBT etc, thst would be a painful lecture to make to them….but facts are facts and they are mounting.

        By the way…seeing the creep also invoked BLM in it’s posts…this is also telling, due to the arrest of one their founders on assault [and worse] charges. No matter how noble the cause, the fact that their leadership is laced with those who should still be doing time is a major red flag. No different than groups run by whites that have a similar sick demographic.

        One last point: if one watches the comvention this evening, keep the above in mind if HC mentions BLM, the equal access bathroom issue, Title IX, etc….keep in mind who this is going to bat for…..and who has been sold down the river. Because it looks as though creeps like Cherno and their ilk, have bought their puppet designated batter.

    • Janetwo Says:

      “I was afraid that I had become the thing I feared the most, an abuser. And technically I did. “

      Not technically, he is literally an abuser and a rapist. There is no such thing as a technical rapist.

      ”I knew I wasn’t a rapist, but what was I now? I had to be honest with myself and admit that I diidn’t have all the answers. I had to get my ego out of the way and ask for help.”

      So this rapist takes upon himself to redefine rape? The fact the the woman he raped was not mentally stable does not mean Cherno was himself insane enough to not know what he was doing. If anything, taking advantage of her makes his heinous crime even less forgivable. And he, the abuser, asks for help? I sincerely hope the woman presses charges. Trying to get any sort of support from that POS was a mistake. Not only Cherno should be kept out of women bathrooms, but of public places, by being behind bars.

      Honeslty, trying to find a limit to how low trannies can morally go is futile. There is no ceiling on the Yuck! factor on transplanet.

      Thanks again Gallus for the great reporting!

  40. Centrum för Dramatik Says:

    May we see the victim’s lengthy response?

    • GallusMag Says:

      Yes. It is public, as reported in the piece.

      • charlston Says:

        I am not convinced the response needs to be seen. Biko has publicised what happened in detail. Its a bit like asking the victim what they were wearing or if they were drinking. Any response is moot in my opinion and just creates a he said/she said derailment.
        The point is Biko did admit to the crime although there was some,’ poor me, I was a victim once so that excuses my perp mentality’, excuses. Biko also changed the story in an effort to beige it up after realising that readers were not of a sympathetic mindset.
        Anyone admitting to rape/ attempted forcible impregnation should not co-chair to the Young Women’s Advisory Board of the New York City Council. Its not rocket science.

        How long was that piece up before Biko felt the need to change it? Why did nobody call them out on it earlier? Are we so conditioned to being PC that we too just let this type of thing slide? Anyone who covers up their crime in an attempt to get away with it is not someone who can be trusted yet Biko is still there. Shame on him.

  41. Livvie Says:

    What has happened to the left? They’re so entranced by the trans narrative that feminists on the left think it’s okay for these scumbags to rape women? Seriously, what is wrong with people?

    This man is a rapist. He admitted to raping a woman. He should be in jail with other rapist men.

    It will be a cold day in hell before I fall for pig propaganda like this. Screw the left, too. They don’t give a fuck about women or children. Obama screwed women with the bathroom bill and Hillary will continue to screw us over, all in favor of the glorious tranny.


    • the victim is a man, not a woman.

      • GallusMag Says:

        The victim is a female who was raped by a male specifically because of her sex.

      • anon male Says:

        “the victim is a man, not a woman.”

        And thus Alex completed his activism quota for the month of August.

        Don’t worry, brosef, I’ve been there, too!

      • Magdalena Z. Says:

        Even a man as deranged as Biko is not deluded enough to think he could impregnate another male.

      • Nina Says:

        If the victim were a cis man or a trans woman (aka, if she was a male instead of female), she would not have been raped, by the explicit admission of the rapist. Regardless of the personal identity politics, this falls into an age-old pattern of male-on-female rape. Insisting “the victim is a man” is a sad attempt at erasing the context and the actual issues at hand. Like males believing they’re entitled to using female bodies for their own ends, with or without our consent.

  42. red Says:

    Today I will write a letter of thanks to the Canadian Blood Service/Red Cross blood bank.

    They know penis. Hoo hoo.

    I guess some T have been demanding they be allowed to donate as LAYDEES because they now have altered documentation to prove it. Apparently it’s made for some very stressful intake interviews for the nurses.

  43. anon male Says:

    Thank you for your reporting on this.

    It’s an interesting parallel with the DNC gushing over a transwoman who launched his career WITH the death of his trans-husband who died from cancer 4 days after their heterosexual marriage.

    Since the democrats aren’t about actual things (are they really going to pass gun control? REALLY? Uh huh, sure) and just keep throwing “feels” at the screen hoping something sticks, I guess that’s as good a way as any to Biden your way into the progressive slush funds.

    But I suppose it’s just random that all these feels seem to favor people born male — of course Cherno thought he’d be rewarded by an audience. It’s like church culture or AA or something. As long as you’re a fascimile of honest and vulnerable (and since female people are expected to be both they get far less credit for it), it doesn’t matter what you admit to, sheep will swoon. Most anyway. Unbelievers must be silenced.

    Fucking trinity, indeed.

    • rheapdx1 Says:

      @anon male Yeah….I noticed that overflow of ‘support’ for this [SIC] ‘heroine’ over in another social space. Sad….sickening and telling that the DNC is embracing these creeps..without question or challenge.

      Which leads into the following and @GallusMag can confirm, via the links sent over through other means…that the sick mindset of the Chernos and their ilk have not only infected the DNC, but others who should know better. From a historical perspective, with the exception of North Korea….the last time any group had that much of a sway in the policies of a government, silenced opposition via the use of force…and put an inoffensive face on this for the rest of the world to see, was Nazi Germany. And the practitioners of this ‘learned’ how to fine tune their message, so it is about a group being ‘oppressed’ and not about their own oppression or subjugation of women, or other groups for their own purposes.

      • juno Says:

      • Janetwo Says:

        The purge against anybody who disagree with the Tranzi propagenda, including scholars, psychologists and physicians certainly takes from the facist playbook. I dont understand how the gay community, knowing what happened in nazi Germany, has not clued in on the dangers of allowing Trans to use the movement they have created to attack them. For somebody with the scholarship, there would be very interesting parallels to make, including the use of pseudo scientific jargon, to make between the two movements.

        @Janetwo There have been attempts on the parts of some, to say that what the t agenda has done, medically and mental health wise is detrimental to the very ones it supposed to help. Case in point, Johns Hopkins….which pioneered some of the surgical practices and counseling therapies is no longer engaged in same. Their reasoning was that the overall quality of life IS NOT IMPROVED by going through this, let alone the problems the person had before they went through transition still exist.

        Of course, this runs counter to the medical and mental health newspeak that took hold, thanks to PC mindsets….and those using the fascist/nazi tactics alluded to earlier, under the guise of ‘we have the right to be_____’ and to hell with anyone who stands in the way of that. Combined with the con games run on politicians and educators.

        To be honest, it will take some hard honest talk from professionals who know the facts, to stand up and point out that the t lies are that. Be they about the HRT cocktail ….or ….that the MTF surgery is like an elective colostomy..or that the community is laced with a higher than average number of crooks. In short, fighting the fascist word games with cold in the light of day facts.

        There is definetely an issue about not enough physicians speaking out. But there is also a bigger one, in my opinion, about the persecution of people who do speak out, like Julie Bindel, like Ken Zucker and so many others. In North America, we have to go back to the MacCarthy era to find such a concerted and vicious attack on the intellectal class. People are afraid to speak out. To me, its clear that the Transmovement is not grassroot, it is too profoundly anti-democratic.

    I understand and completely support GallusMag’s tact and discretion in declining to link to the statements by the person Biko raped. However, Biko has violated that person several times over, first by raping them, then in his public statements about them, made, it is entirely clear, without their co-operation, consent or prior knowledge. Their own public statements about the episode are easily found on Twitter, as GallusMag has said.

    I see that at least one commenter above has accepted without question Biko’s claim, only made in his revised statement, that that person is “mentally unstable”. It is all too clear that this is designed to discredit what they say. In fact, I have read large parts of that person’s twitter stream and it is characterised by great restraint, dignity and lucidity.

    (Yes, I am taking care not to do what that person would undoubtedly experience as “misgendering”. I am usually robust over grammatically gendered pronouns, but in this case I don’t want to say anything that may be felt as adding to the insults and abuse that they have experienced already.)

    Another commenter above has said: “I am not convinced the response needs to be seen. Biko has publicised what happened in detail. … Any response is moot in my opinion and just creates a he said/she said derailment.”

    You really accept *Biko*’s self-serving account of what happened? Here is a point to note. Biko states “In the days following … I listened more than I shared. I validated their feelings … But in April when their text messages became threatening and unhealthy I blocked their number …” However, as GallusMag has already stated, the transman has posted on Twitter several screenshots of text messages sent between the two. These make it quite clear that Biko was unsupportive and thoroughly mean in his behaviour. Nothing in these screenshots support his claim that threats were made, and Biko himself has produced no evidence of this.

      Hi Artemisia. I wonder if you misunderstood my comment? In my understanding, Biko did admit to attempted impregnation and rape. In both written accounts this is not disputed.The dramatic retelling of how it unfolded, as told by Biko, is not believable of course, but that is not my point.
      I don’t care how sugarcoated it is or what excuses they came up with to make themselves look better.The constant here is Biko does realise what they did.
      Psychologists and the public give Trans much understanding and leeway for their actions these days. Biko thinks he is the victim here and will receive that understanding due to some delusion of grandeur that is apparent in their online articles.

      Biko is a self confessed predator and perpetrator.

      Gallas does her homework, she researched the story and the Transmans responses are being read by some people online.
      Biko knew this may come out and tried to do some damage control as it was all there in black and white for the world to see.

      I said I don’t need to see those responses because in this case, Bikos desire to get what Biko wants is obvious and admitted. Twice!
      The Transman didn’t get to have a say either at the time of the encounter or when Biko wrote both pieces. I don’t need to hound them for a comment to read or cause them to have to go public. I feel its not needed and I think Gallus is doing the right thing .
      Sorry for the confusion.


  45. Gallus, excellent job of exposing this liar and his creative way of revising his original article. It’s like a kid who has been caught red handed, and then he continues to lie about it. This guy has no shame. The fact that he immediately changed part of his story in an attempt to discredit his victim is further proof that no one can believe anything he says.

    @gchild

    “So, he revised it to emphasize the fact that the transman is a crazy, blackmailing gold digger?

    Funny how he uses FEMALE stereotypes (crazy, money hungry, conniving) that work so well…like in a courtroom for the tiny percent of rape cases that make it to trial.”

    Exactly. It could be that he is worried that the transman might file charges, so he is already cooking up all sorts of lame excuses (blame it on alcohol, drugs, etc.) and ways to discredit and smear his victim (mentally unstable, out to get me, gold digger who wants money, etc.). In other words, the typical textbook excuses that abusive and predatory men have been using since forever.

    This sentence wasn’t in his original article. Then, immediately after he knows people are on to what he has done, he revises his earlier statement.

    “In hindsight I realized that it was impossible for either of us to consent, while under the influence.”

    In the original article, he states,

    “The first time we had sex I can barely remember, as it followed a night of drinking and smoking but I know that we broke two of the most important rules… consent and safe sex”

    He admits that it wasn’t consensual, and tosses in the, “In hindsight bullsh** in his revised article. When did this enlightening hindsight occur? When he discovered that people read his original article and admission, suddenly he experiences miraculous hindsight. What a handy catch all excuse for any and everything! In hindsight, I believe I was too drunk to know better.

    Original article…

    “Albeit I was afraid that I had become the thing I feared the most, an abuser. And technically I did.”

    In the revised article, he states,

    “In the days following my [sic] I wanted to respond in all the ways my abuser didn’t especially since I knew they were mentally unstable.”

    In the revised article, notice how he says, “my abuser”. The transman is suddenly “my abuser”, and mentally unstable to boot. The transman is now “my abuser”, mentally unstable, and out to get money from him. If the transman was so mentally unstable, one would think he would notice it right away, as in when he first wrote his article. No mention of mentally unstable in the original article.

    Does anyone know if the transman got PEP [Post Exposure Prophylaxis] prescription to prevent HIV infection? Since he lies so much, and admits to having sex with men in his article, I wonder how many men (or possibly females) he has had unprotected sex with. I hope the transman is safe.

    Cherno has been poison for a long time now. No one held her accountable – she is dangerous.

    • Sarah Says:

      Honestly not to nitpick or be self righteous because I did this too for a long time, and worse, … but you’re continuing the lack of accountability and honesty by referring to this rapist as if he is a woman. This is particularly apparent when pretending to be female (insisting that everyone go along, as MTT do) is how he got all these females and organizations to let their guards down in the first place.

  47. interestingupdate Says:

    Just a sometimes reader, wanted to let you know that the medium article was pulled by the author.


  48. […] With a Rapists’ Corner.  And loitering with intent and pissing against the walls are this fucker, this fucker, this fucker, this fucker, this fucker, this fucker and all the other convicted and […]

  49. Nina Says:

    This is a really good example of how trans language can really obscure the underlying oppression. This is a story where a male raped a female, nothing new there. But you just know this case, and others like it, will be counted in female-on-male rape rates, making the gap between male-perpetrated and female-perpetrated violence seem narrower than it really is. Those misleading stats will be used to justify opening up female safe spaces for males, making it increasingly easier for them to prey on women.

    Also wow @ “black non-binary baby”. If the baby turned out cis was he gonna toss it in a dumpster? (How would you even tell at that age?) I wonder how many “trans kids” are “second generation trans” who have been pressured into it by dear old mom and dad.

    • GallusMag Says:

      “We raised you to be non-binary ZoeAyden! You’ll wear that side-cut and like it!”

    • nonny Says:

      @Nina: They really show their asses with that kind of talk, too. I remember reading a story on tumblr in which someone was fighting w/their roommate who was insisting that if they were really politically radical, they’d identify as trans. So which is it? Is being trans a chosen ideological position after all? Is it an innate trait you’re born with and MUST have government funded medical intervention and absolute validation and submission from women in order to cope with….or is it an ideology you can brainwash your “non-binary baby” into accepting? (Rhetorical questions, of course, but it’s f-ing wild that they so casually contradict their own bullshit)

      @ Gallus: lol right??? “CPS took little Zayidynne Laura-Jane Manning Koselik the 1st away. They claimed it isn’t appropriate that I’m so obsessed with zir’s genitals and that infants are too young for bleached and dyed undercuts.”

      I’ve seen a lot of stories about an M2T father and a “trans” child. The “trans” child is almost inevitably F2T.
