    There’s no end to reaching peak trans. I keep reaching it again and again and again. Sorry, fellas. You will never have a pussy. Trump didn’t say he would grab you by your dick and balls or your “neo-vagina.”

    Look, I didn’t support the protests and I already listed my reasons why I couldn’t, but this better wake the handmaidens up to their own erasure. What more is it gonna take for them to finally realize that they’re being played for fools by these men? They’re using “intersectionality” to manipulate them. They think that because you exclude a male, it means you’re exluding women of color. Bullshit! We include all women, but a trans woman is not a woman. Period!

    Oh noes. I said the “p” word. I must’ve triggered some trans women and hurt their fee fees. Too bad!

    Used to think Britain was more sane about this stuff than we are but they are catching up

    They just seem to want to deny women any role.

      I’d say the U.K. has been worse than the U.S., they just have more resistance. More women speaking out against the bullshit.

  3. Anemone Says:

    But what if I feel unwelcome if I’m not allowed to wear a pussy hat? Do they want me to just leave my pussy at home? Or just pretend I don’t have one? That almost makes me want to have one of those hats.

    • Charlotte Says:

      It doesn’t matter if you feel uncomfortable because you are a real woman- now shut up and take your place as third class citizen behind men and then the men in skirts….

    • Ruby Purl Says:

      I will make you one

      • Anemone Says:

        That’s nice of you to offer, but I should make my own. It’s part of the journey. Also, I can’t stand that shade of pink, so will be going for coral or salmon. I saw one in variegated pink with tassels on the ears, so maybe I’ll add tassels, too!


  4. Reblogged this on Dead Wild Roses and commented:
    “The vagina centric theme of the *woman’s marches* was entirely offensive…”

    Heaven fracking forbid that women are able to identify with the material reality of their oppression.

    No no, let’s not offend the men-folk…*that* should be the priority.

  5. freenampeyo Says:

    Sisters in the UK. Please know that vaginas, pink hats, and pussy power signs and imagery represent what women want and need as a sex. If men want to dress up in high heels and gender identify themselves as women, let them. If these men want to be actual allies of women, we appreciate the solidarity. However, they are not women. They do not menstruate, get pregnant, need birth control, need abortions, give birth, nurse children, go through menopause, or get cervical cancer. These are all women’s issues and women need to put them front and center when opposing Trump and his policies. We have a lot more important things to worry about than hurting the feelings of male to trans persons who feel their issues are so important that we should not even mention these far more critical issues.


  6. I didn’t like the pink hats at first, but now I’m starting to want one.


  7. Again, just like men, they want to focus on female body parts when it’s to their benefit but denounce it when women do the same. But this is great, actually. Because maybe women will finally take off their rose-colored glasses. I also think this kind of “don’t say pussy” mentality mirrors the Trump-era philosophy. It does not fight back against it, but mirrors it perfectly.

    • Kathleen Lowrey Says:

      it is pretty great. I was a cynic about the women’s marches but the revelatory effect of the repeated angry denunciations in their wake of their having been too focused women and women’s bodies is sort of concentrated elixir of consciousness-raising.


  8. Males telling women when, where, how, and to what extent women can talk about our own bodies. Nothing new here. Same shit different day. Males controlling the speech of women, telling us what we can and cannot say, even at women’s marches. Same shit different day.

    Women should be able to say and do whatever they please at a women’s march.

    If I lived in the UK, I would wear a pink pussy hat anyway. I would knit or buy as many hats as I could and hand them out. There is nothing they could do to stop women.

    Saying “vagina centric” at a women’s march is an insult to the female sex. I wish someone would explain to me what “vagina centric” means, especially as it relates to women marching for their reproductive rights. Rape, birth control, abortion, menstruation, etc. are all “vagina centric”. Transwomen are, in fact, males and they don’t need abortions. They don’t give birth, menstruate, go through menopause and like all males, contraception to them means putting on a condom. Birth control for females is entirely different than birth control for males, and this includes transwomen. Abortion is a women’s issue not a transgender issue.

    This is our female bodies, our flesh and blood, our ovaries, our uterus, our vaginas, and we can’t even talk about our own bodies at a women’s march of all places. The female sex is being asked to disconnect from our very own flesh, and this is at a women’s march.

    Fu** them. I done with it all, and women need to get out in droves proudly wearing their hats. Flood the streets with those hats. Carry a “Pussy Power” sign.

    Better yet, women should form our own marches, and make it clear that it’s about women’s issues not transgender issues. Women’s rights are not the same as transgender rights. They are two different things. If trans want to join, they need to respect us, and keep their mouths shut because women will say and do whatever we damn well please.

    Looking through the facebook event discussion: Interesting how “pussy power” is exclusionary but using cunt as a slur is not.

    • ohdear Says:

      I am in favor of a women’s movement that recognizes female biology, but damm it disappoints me that everyone seems to have forgotten that “pussy” is a slur. It’s a pornified, crass word for female genitalia–which is why trump used it. I hear people saying it these days as if it is a neutral term, as if they had just said “vulva.” It irks me. I get that the hats riff on the dual meaning of “pussy,” and have no problem with that. But overall, let’s not capitulate to pornified culture–for me that means not forgetting what and where “pussy” came from.

      • thisismeandonlyme Says:

        Yes Trumped used it. That is why it was used back, and personally I think it is hilarious. I don’t know if you were at any of the marches, but it was great. The whole porn culture crap was thrown right back at the patriarchy. It was wonderful.

        We get it. Trust us.

      • FX Katt Says:

        Right On!! To me this is the real issue. The first thing to come to my mind when I heard about this is that the “pro-sex” feminists had taken control of the march.

        The slur not only has a deep history, it is also very much is use in both the mainstream and many sub-worlds today. It is in the same category as the “n word” which the Black pol. community attacked when young Blacks casually used in in rap music, comedy, performance art, and as street language. And looks what happened to the epithet “chick”–it became verboten in the seventies, but later returned with a vengeance, in part because many hip young women decided they would embrace it both playfully and as flattery (to hip men).
        Animal Rights persons should find both “pussy” and “chick” offensive also. (Take a look at ‘pussy porn’ and this will become immediately plain)

      • fmnst Says:

        Thank you for raising the issue of “pussy” being a pornified word. I almost want one of those blasted hats now, as an in-your-face symbol to trans, but hate that word.

        How about a uterus hat, in purple? Or reddish purple? With fallopian tubes and ovaries? The tubes would need to be firm or rigid enough to stand up, dangling their ovaries, not just lie on the hat. Maybe a wire insert would help.

        I don’t know how to knit, but would anyone creative be interested in designing one? They might get a lot of use in future marches over the next four years.

        I would like one with the tubes long enough that I can tie them together with a ribbon, to represent having one’s tubes tied (to encourage straight and bi women getting sterilized to prevent overpopulation.)

    • sirenpress Says:

      Yes, cunt as a slur was fine. It was great how that thread highlighted this.

  10. Medi Says:

    Surely there will be thousands of women at the march, and they can easily outnumber the male to trans, and all the women can wear the pink hats and totally disobey the crap and come up with chants to make fun of it all. In LA there were so many thousands and thousands of women, that no one could have enforced any dress code at all for women.

  11. Mark F. Says:

    People in the UK are protesting against Trump? That’s odd, Americans don’t generally protest foreign leaders.

    • Dogtowner Says:

      No, they just engage in regime change and kill them. Oh, whoops, I forgot, Americans have no memory of history or clue as to what their government is doing.

    • Leo Says:

      I kinda wish they weren’t tbh, because I fear it might be counter-productive in that we end up treated like a state in the US (so sick of this!) and that engaging excessively with US politics drags our politics worryingly towards the right wing – shifts the Overton window. It’s not perfect here by a long shot, but we don’t have the exact same issues the US does, this concern over abortion isn’t even a question here in England (Ireland on the other hand, yes, but same issue as the US there, patriarchal religion). If we treat it like a fight we need to be having, it becomes a fight we need to be having. Things seem to have become so extreme in the US partly because so much ground is ceded on many issues just by accepting the far right setting the terms of debate so far back it’s as though it’s taking place in the 19th century, and engaging with them as though they are being reasonable (which in fact they do not even intend to be, that’s not the point of the tactic), instead of laughing at them for how ridiculous and awful they are and asserting it’s a settled question.

      It also just seems myopic because there are so many foreign leaders we could be protesting besides Trump. It makes the protesters look more like the usual liberal bandwagon jumpers than serious activists, and of course America is always so much cooler and it’s what all their US friends are on about on social media…

      As amusing as the prospect of exclusionary vaginas is (tough luck fellas!), I’d rather insist on a possibly unreasonable standard of perfection in feminist activism than wear a cutesy pink kitty-eared hat, because gawds knows attempts at ‘reclaiming’ patriarchal bullshit hasn’t worked so far.

  12. Background Spinner Says:

    Just had a vision of sparkly “lady dick” hats, with the dick going flop, flop, flop.

    Gives new meaning to “Shake your head NO, women!!”


  13. Just like at the Women’s March, I hope women wear whatever the hell they want and carry signs full of vulgar jokes about women’s body parts and go anyway.

  14. Imelda_B Says:

    When does this become “the presence of women with vaginas is offensive to trans women, and thus in order to be intersectional and respectful of transwomen women with vaginas should remove themselves”?

  15. Nadia Smith Says:

    Please note this has nothing to do with the UK but a tiny hardline group in Brighton who also come out with this male priviledge rubbish each year. They are getting ridiculed on their facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/events/350304378689960/permalink/350822901971441/

    • Nadia Smith Says:

      Sorry should say every year for Reclaim the Night ie turning that event totally on its head.

    • GallusMag Says:

      The demo was held at locations across the UK simultaneously.

      • Nadia Smith Says:

        Yes, but the facebook entry you have quoted is for the one in the Brighton area. Has no impact on what groups in other areas do or did. It is just sad that Brighton activists have been infiltrated by a group of queer activists. Their annual reclaim the night march is anything but a march against violence against women. I suspect it comes from nearby college as there are increasing examples of when students organise reclaim the night march they always come out with this queer party line. The real issue is now universities have been totally coopted by queer activism. For many young people it is their first contact with political organising and they accept what is presented as the “correct”.

      • GallusMag Says:

        I know what I quoted. I disagree with your assumption that this is an isolated phenomenon.

      • Rachel Says:

        UK woman here: it isn’t just Brighton that’s been taken over by the queer lobby. Manchester RTN has been the target of transloon anger since about 2005. Ladyfest music festivals got completely taken over by the trans borg at about the same time.
        There are pockets of resistance, and there has always been a loose radfem network of some kind here. Older feminists are much wiser to trans bullshit, too.
        Unfortunately, trans kids have become a big thing over here, although there are some strong dissenting voices, and more people are reaching Peak Trans.

      • fmnst Says:

        I would like to borrow Rachel’s new term, “transloon,” and use it widely.

  16. CKDexterHaven Says:

    The Right is winning elections everywhere because the Left has decided that policing its members for even the slightest possibility of giving offence is more important than materially improving people’s lives. I’m re-reading a lot of Orwell and, let’s just say, it’s incredibly resonant at the moment.

  17. punkworked Says:

    Fashion article in Guardian celebrating the trouser suit as political statement. I think fashion will move away from hyper femme as rejection of Trump and his values. Wonder how MTF will pass in the androgynous look.

    • Oak and Ash Says:

      They’ll probably claim it’s cissexist. MTF’s have already complained that going without makeup is a sign of “cis-privilege”, since women don’t need it in order to pass. (Right, how many of us have enjoyed the “privilege” of being told we’d look so much better if we wore lipstick or eyeliner?)

      So there’s our new look for spring: the trouser suit and a matching hat with pussy ears, accessorized with a take-no-prisoners mindset.

      • GallusMag Says:

        And for men: Hooker garb and heavy make-up, swinging pink and blue axes. 😉

      • Oak and Ash Says:

        “And for men: Hooker garb and heavy make-up, swinging pink and blue axes.”

        Now I have to watch kitten videos to get that image out of my head!

      • Oak and Ash Says:

        Good Lord, GM, you weren’t joking! (About the axes, I mean, not the hooker garb and make-up, which I’ve seen too many examples of to doubt.) Pardon my ignorance, but are the pink and blue axes some sort of MTF appropriation of the labrys? Appalling!

        So, if I read the symbolism correctly, it’s pink and blue for trans pride, axes for MTF’s, and baseball bats for . . . self-defense? Okay, the point of the baseball bats isn’t obvious to me, and maybe I’m overthinking the whole thing.

        Time for more kitten videos.

      • GallusMag Says:

        I think the ax and baseball bats are to terrorize others with threats of male violence.

    • Mark F. Says:

      No, those with “laydee brains” must always be wearing fabulous frocks, wigs, precious gems, and lots of porn star makeup. Pants and short hair just won’t do, as an androgynous looking women might be mistaken for a man, God forbid. It’s all about validation of those “laydee feelings.”

  18. Worriedmom Says:

    I’m afraid what’s going to happen is that foolish trans – activism is going to cause so much dissension that any emerging women’s movement will be derailed. It is so sad to watch this. I am of the opinion the militant trans activism around things like bathrooms and Title Nine had a lot to do with turning people off the Democrats in the most recent election. It makes me Furious that this bunch of loud mouths, which is really such a tiny number of people, can do so much damage to the rest of us.

    • FX Katt Says:

      I do agree about the Democrats losing voters over the trans issue (the loss in North Carolina) but, remarkably, Obama didn’t seem to lose popularity over his general support for trans, nor his edicts on the bathroom issue. This said, Clinton knew enough to stay away from the issue–which helped her, but not enough.

  19. Pam I Says:

    The next day, looking at that FB page and the original post, the comments reacting to it are about 50 to 1 against it. Not all from ranting Rad Fems, many are just challenging the whole idea and angry that she is deflecting from the main reason for the march ie the anti-muslim ban. So there is more sanity out there than gets expressed, it’s not just in the Daily Mail that people call out the TA bullshit.

  20. run Says:

    God damn it! Am I going to have to make one of those fucking hats?

  21. radiantlux Says:

    I’d like to see them try and stop the women who already marched

  22. Peachyoghurt Says:

    This is getting more stupid every day. Men’s feelings trump women’s reality. More reasons to show up with a pussy sign.

  23. Carrie-Anne Says:

    These MTTs are so pathetic, misogynistic, vile, self-centered! Someone on the GenderCritical Reddit listed her peak trans moment as realizing the only “identities” we’re expected to respect and honor are those of MTTs, while pretending biological sex is post-modern nothingness. Further, we’re expected to pretend having a vagina, ovaries, etc., has nothing to do with being female, even if that makes us feel disconnected from our own bodies. It’s bad enough so many girls and women think it’s dirty, shameful, or giggle-worthy to use the proper names for their body parts, and to openly discuss things like menstruation. These MTTs are only making it worse. And how dare they whine about feminists supposedly identifying people by their genitals when they’re the ones referring to women as vagina-havers, uterus-bearers, menstruators, front hole people, and people with vulvas!

  24. Margie Says:

    Whenever anyone says that they want to be “inclusive,” that means they are about to ban something or someone. It’s the all-purpose justification for imposing your will on others.

    What these women should do is ignore the ban, show up wearing whatever they like, and then let the organizers try and enforce their decree. if the organisers say “Remove that hat or get out!” they should smile and say “No and no.” It will be an amazing sight to see the organizers trying to expel thousands of women for daring to mention vaginas.

    • background spinner Says:

      ^^^ Oh this, this, this is what I’ve been saying! We have the *overwhelming* numbers. We are women. Just kinda nod, smirk, smile knowingly and go on about our business. We do not kowtow to them… EVER!!!

    • k.jane Says:

      “Whenever anyone says that they want to be “inclusive,” that means they are about to ban something or someone. It’s the all-purpose justification for imposing your will on others.”

      Wow, that’s exactly it! How many times have we seen calls to ban books and ban people (usually radical feminist women) from speaking in the name of being “inclusive”? I associate “inclusive” as being a buzz word for justifying female erasure and tip-toeing around violent men. Interestingly, you never hear the word “inclusive” used when suggesting, that big name charities offer a sliding scale admission price to their events so that those who are not class-privileged can attend.

      I have conflicted feelings about the pussy hat, but if I lived in the UK I would wear it to the march. I think that’s a good idea. Stand up to these thought-policing assholes!

  26. Samantha Scott Says:

    Mark F; Yes , rather! British people are protesting about Trump! Over here we tend to be more engaged in world politics than the average Americans, but believe me he is HATED here by everyone! All sides of the political spectrum, except wankers like Farage (my sister in law’s friend is his PA, I could tell you stories), hate him too but they’re trying to be diplomatic. As of this morning the parliamentary petition site had around almost 2 million signatures saying he shouldn’t be allowed to come here on a state visit, many many than are needed for it to be debated in parliament. A state visit is a really big thing here: it’s caused quite a scandal that our PM invited him on one so soon after his inauguration. For example, JFK was never invited. It would involve staying at Buckingham Palace, riding down the The Mall in a golden coach with the Quern whilst guardsmen line the road,etc. We’re all up in arms not just because of his sex of fences, immigration policies, etched but we don’t want the Queen exposed to him. Even me, who isn’t really a monarchist. Before he met our PM Theresa May he was tweeting he was going to meet Teresa May, who is apparently a porn star, then he grabbed her by the hand. Where the fuck is he going to grab the Queen?

  27. GallusMag Says:

    THIS IS HILARIOUS:

    A woman writes the most apologetic pro-pussy manifesto imaginable (she even slurs lesbians and other feminists as “TERFS”!)
    and the transwoman fellows on twitter are absolutely trashing her. LOLOLOLOL. When will libfems learn you can’t give these men an inch?

    She calls for an ‘assertive cisfeminist movement’LOL CISFEMINIST!!!! for those who “are biologically female and also present as women“. LOLOLOLOL

    “These conversations speak to the urgent need not to declare cis feminism obsolete, but for an inclusive and assertive cis feminism. This most certainly does not mean going on equating all feminism with cis feminism. It means creating a space where cis women can speak out about the specific oppressions we face, without either a) denying that trans women generally have it worse still, or b) dissolving into a puddle of self-flagellation and apology. (Cis women, regardless of politics, are socialized to defer.) We can affirm, and stand in solidarity with, trans women’s struggles, without having to declare our own – an intertwined form of marginalization that impacts those who are biologically female and also present as women – a form of privileged irrelevance.”

    • GallusMag Says:

      lolololol more


    • Those who are squeamish about using the word “transcisman” can’t complain about anyone using the word “cis” as it’s just another term men have invented to degrade the status of women just as they use whore, ‘ho, slut, bitch, witch, bleeder, breeder, slag, skag, hag, nag, bag, fish ad infinitum. “Cis” should only be used to describe men themselves according to their own terms.

    • IronBatMaiden Says:

      I reached peak trans again. These men are pathetic. Keep up the good work. More publications and books will be written on this whole trans phenomenon and its effects on the feminist movement. Pretty soon, our Amazon sisters will wake up rise again! Who knows? Maybe it’ll be even better than the first time in the ’70s! Maybe we’ll get Michfest back or something just like it!

  28. Oak and Ash Says:

    As several women have commented, I’ve also noticed that MTF’s (like so many other men) have no problem naming our body parts in ways demeaning to us or as part of their fetishes, but reach for the smelling salts and the fainting couch as soon as we acknowledge our own biology.

    It reminds me of the men who are distressed to see their wives give birth and nurse an infant with the body parts they thought belonged to them, the unwillingness of men in some cultures to touch/be in the presence of menstruating women, or conservative male politicians’ attempts to ban access to abortion and contraception.

    All these men prefer to see us as a collection of disembodied parts they can desire or possess (carried to an extreme with some MTF’s!), which is why they become enraged when we dare to assert ownership of our female bodies and the right to talk about them in terms that we’ve chosen, rather than defer to what they want.

  29. GallusMag Says:

    Private to whom it may concern: Michael K. Roberts


  30. I’m confused. Is this a women’s march or an anti-Trump march? Even if it’s an anti-Trump march, how can they tell women what to wear and what not to wear, and what they can and cannot say? I say the march should be a sea of pink Pussy hats.

    Because women are 50% of the population, more women are going to be harmed by Trump’s policies than transgender. Whether it’s immigration or abortion, more women are going to be harmed. Then, they have the audacity to tell us what we can and cannot wear. “Vagina centric” my ass. Humans with vaginas are 50% of the population, and they are trying to control what we wear and say.

    At first, I thought the “Pussy hats” were silly. I really didn’t understand what the “Pussy Hats” were all about until I saw this video. Yes, Trump said, “Grab them by the pussy”.

    Trump wasn’t talking about grabbing a transwoman’s testicles.

    Trump’s gag order on abortion is going to impact poor women globally. The so-called global gag prohibits international organizations from receiving any U.S. global health assistance if they provide, counsel, refer or advocate for abortion services — even if they are doing so with their own, non-U.S. funds, and even if abortion is legal in their own country.

    No US money to health care groups in other countries if they provide abortion, or even speak about abortion. It’s ghastly.

    Poor women are going to die in back alley abortions, and this doesn’t have anything to do with transgender. When bored white males in the US and UK say they “identify as women”, they don’t mean poor women in South America or India.

    Republican presidents starting with Reagan have signed onto this, and Democrats keep rescinding it.

    This “vagina centric” nonsense makes it sound like poor transwomen are victims that require protection from mean “cis” women. If anything, it’s women who need protection from transgender/queer identified males. Last November a transwoman was charged with slaughtering a lesbian family, and British journalist Julie Bindel has received rape and death threats. No woman has ever murdered a transwoman, but transwomen (males) have been convicted of raping and murdering a lot of women.

    • fmnst Says:

      Indeed. Great comments. The world has been d##k-centered forever. What the world needs is to become “vagina-centric,” ASAP, to undo all that patriarchy has done. These dudes in dresses don’t want the world to become vagina-centric, because they know they don’t have vaginas, and never will.


  31. It’s so perversely ironic that the term “Pussy Power” might be used by women – as it was coined by the late Eldridge Cleaver who deployed the term to suggest restricting women’s agency to only their ability to sexually attract and manipulate men to get them to do things i.e. by using their “pussy power.” That was meant to designate the limits of women’s power to their use of their genitals. Given that limit how could girl children or elderly women expect to use their genitals to get their needs fulfilled? That some women would feed into this image is self-destructive or maybe they also see some women only as sex objects.

    • rheapdx1 Says:

      Agreed…

      By the way, considering what some in the t-contingent have on display during pride parades (one of the reasons why I avoid them now, along with how really melanin deprived these events can be, outside of entertainers and crooks)…pussy hats are a MILD display of anger and support. The ones who object, yet aspire to be female need to understand that, not erase it.

    Long time reader, first time comment(er). I am giving away a pussyhat. Just come and leave a comment. I love your conversations here.

      Owner

      January 2003 – January 2013 (10 years 1 month)Sudbury, ON; Deseronto, ON, Kingston, ON

      Netherworld C&C was a cafe and computer repair shop and Sudbury, ON. When I severely hurt my back, I scaled back the company to become an independent contractor. I was recognized by AMD, Intel and many industry giants, and also used my past work experience with Packard Bell and IBM to become an authorize service representative.

        Nope, that is the same Jacquelyn Laronde dude. He was arrested in Kingston, ON.

        This Lalonde creep was working with LGBT Youth:

        http://www.lfpress.com/2017/02/03/parent-in-kid-sex-case-remains-free

        What a pervert, who did not begin transitioning until he was 42 years old, shares in common with homeless LGBT youth is beyond me, He had been formerly married to a woman, and had at least one child with her.

        Being an opportunistic pedophile predator who positions themself to work with vulnerable kids is not an unusual angle in these horrifying cases involving MTT.

    • Margie Says:

      He also was an honored speaker at a Women’s March event in Kingston. He posted a video on his YT channel showing him lecturing the ladies about what their political priorities should be. They obediently applaud. Unfortunately, he just now took it down, so I can’t provide a link.

      He also had on his channel a video where he made a pitch to be elected as co-chair of Kingston Pride. He talked about how important it was to include transgenders and boasted about how “the anarchists” supported him. As we know, he eventually won the spot. This is what “LGBT” has done to us. Those poor, deluded LGBs in Kingston, Ontario elected a child abuser to a leadership position and have disgraced themselves and their event because LGBT taught them that LGBs have a common identity with heterosexual crossdressers and are required to serve them.

      • Marm Says:

        Whoa. Another late transitioner, with an ex-wife and child or children (reference to custody issue in his letter to his ex about his transition). Plus BDSM, and an alleged Wiccan.

        Also a guy who with another guy PAID a parent to let them sexually abuse their child. But with a public face as a righteous representative of his local trans community. Where’s the outcry from his local community ?

      • Margie Says:

        Thanks for that additional info, Gallus! Apparently, that is an old channel that he set up a few years ago and then abandoned as he migrated to a new channel. He took down the newer channel last night but seems to have forgotten about his old one.

        As for the post regarding the Daily Xtra and a controversy over “angry messages” – here is the article which explains it. http://www.dailyxtra.com/news-and-ideas/news/kingston-pride-tells-trans-group-angry%E2%80%99-messages-welcome-108938

        These people destroy everything they touch. First he embroils Kingston Pride in division and controversy and now he tars it with a sexual abuse scandal.

        BTW, it is worth noting that Daily Xtra, the website which took up “Jacqueline’s” cause, is the same transjacked publication which last year brought us the story of “Stefonknee” the 50-something married man who abandoned his wife and multiple children in order to pursue life as a 6-year old girl and who has “play therapy” with a real 8-year old girl. Daily Xtra did a sympathetic video about Stefonknee and was shocked when it went viral and received an overwhelmingly negative response from young people of all political persuasions.

    Possibly OT so please do not publish if you see as a disruption, Gallus.

    Has anyone else noticed that “trans dykes” aka narcissistic men (God, that smirk skeeves me out to my core) were wildly over-represented in the “setting shit on fire” demographic at Berkeley this week? I say this due to their unusual proclivity for carrying identifying signs and not concealing their faces while destroying property. Maybe it’s a class thing, but even as a large white male I would be terrified of the consequences of non- anonymous property destruction. The insane quest for perfect partisan purity dominating the present zeitgeist has led the neoliberal left to uncritically embrace those with malignant personality disorders.

      I just had to see Ms. Jacqueline’s mugshot – these dainty predators never disappoint. He’s co-chair of a local Pride event too, naturally.

      ‘quest for purity dominating… led the neoliberal left to uncritically embrace those with malignant personality disorders’

      Yes. Or to update the old quote: ‘First they came for the socialists and I didn’t speak out. Then they came for the feminists. Then they came for the lesbians. Then they came for the minority ethnic populations. The gays, the poor… Then I looked up and all that remained were rich white guys with malignant personality disorders and baseball bats, and there was no one left to speak for me.’

      • anotheranonmale Says:

        I grew up in a household with an NPD parent, and this thing we are all living through is (while totally necessary to engage with) making me feel like a kid again. Trying to understand the dividing psych line between being the enabling/ friendly party (breitbart, heteroqueer handmaidens) and the scapegoat child (news media, terfs). Maybe it’s lack of ability to derive validation in a mature fashion? Habitation to abusive validation looks a little different than what I am seeing, although thay woman Gallus posted upthread who couldn’t pass ideological muster with the AGPs may fit that mold.

    • Marm Says:

      I am really not on the side of any “Trans Dykes”(ie heterosexual men with wrong notions).

      BUT – given the aggressive, agitator behaviour of these dudes makes me wonder if they are law enforcement, etc. masquerading as Trans Dykes. At the G8 protests in Toronto (2010 I think ?), there were undercover cops pretending to be Black Block protesters. Many of these faux-protesters wanted to incite a riot, to get the real protesters to follow like lemmings, so they did things like smash a police car’s windows – a police car that was conveniently abandoned and left unlocked in the middle of the street. If they could get others to escalate the violence, then the followers could be arrested.

      People that were there during the events noticed a certain strain of protesters, who were unknown to them or anyone in their circles. These aliens were more aggressive, and wore police type footwear, out of step with what the others wore in their peer/political groups.

      I’m not saying those Trans Dyke assholes aren’t real transactivists, acting like the aggressive men that they are. But, considered in context, there may be an element of Disinformation at work here, too, whether from law enforcement, the right or who knows where to infiltrate in plain sight ( ie why their faces weren’t covered, so others who saw them at the demonstration could identify and approach them later in solidarity).

      This Brave New World gets more paranoia inducing everyday with the focus on shifting reality.

    • kesher Says:

      I’m not sure how this reflects on the rest of the antisocial Left, or if it does at all, but I think there’s a considerable demographic of non-transitioning M2Ts (i.e. regular straight men who barely even bother crossdressing) who are generally antisocial, can’t hold down a job, and have glommed on to trans identity as a way to wield power and prestige within leftist groups while also having an excuse for why they can’t grow up and get a damn job. Trans people’s “oppression” serves as the excuse for why they’re unemployable, not their laziness or antisocial behavior. So, no, those guys aren’t afraid of the consequences of property destruction since they’re gleefully unemployed/unemployable already. If anything, being arrested adds to their “oppressed trans woman” cred.

    Hi Ladies:

    I am making a welfare check of a rad fem I used to see on rad fem blogs named [redacted]. I think she posted here in the past. Does anybody know if she is still around? Still active? I just wanted to know if she’s OK. Google didn’t turn up anything recent.

    And in other UK news, a man to trans convicted murderer housed in a female prison was returned to a male prison after he allegedly had sex with female inmates.
