The festering boil of man-loving female “Queers” who have battered and destroyed Lesbian Spaces, Lesbian Culture, and Lesbian Lives for the last 20 some years erupted in a stream of foul puss this week in response to the hiring of an actual Lesbian editor to run the ostensibly Lesbian-centric website AfterEllen.

The site had been destroyed by a cluster of hetero “queer” women writers and a commentariat empowered by fired former editor, the awful Trish Bendix, who believes homosexuality is oppressive to those who engage in heterosexuality, that women oppress men by declining to socialize with them, and that lesbian speech, the lesbian politic, and unique lesbian culture should be censored by any means necessary.

Their goal? To suppress lesbian-specific content and community and drive lesbians and lesbian culture out of public life. Their motive? Colonization and sexual exploitation of women. Their tactic? The same suppressive techniques utilized by heterosexual “queers” (and many gay men) across the “LGBT”: Silencing, censorship, slurs, violence, economic marginalization, coercion, shaming, harassment, and domination by their sheer numbers and proximity to/membership-in male power structures and authority: political, financial, social, technological, et al.

In the pathetic case of the specific tumor attached to the AfterEllen website, how this played out was a constant and repeated mashing of the report/censor button on any woman who expressed a homosexual point of view (or even reference to the female sex as a discrete human characteristic) followed by a bunch of yelling about men’s feelings, using slurs, shaming, and inevitable censorship and ban by the hetero “queer” Trish Bendix moderation team.

The problem is, lesbians kept showing up, assuming the site was lesbian centric. “AfterEllen” referred to Ellen Degeneres of course, the massive dyke and queen of the universe who threw her mainstream media career and life’s work on the pyre of lesbophobia for the benefit of us all and was the only high profile homosexual to ever do so at the time. What latecomers didn’t realize is that the Trish Bendix crew was running the site as a massive peen re-education project, and that “After Ellen” was meant to be “After Ellen” as in, “after lesbians like her are eliminated”.

The “Queer” heteroflexible women and porn-sick male autogynephiles that comprised Trish Bendix’s lesbian re-education camp at AfterEllen have always been with us. They were the gruesome straight couple at the dyke bar on the weekend looking for a threesome among the female homosexuals, searching for the swinging “lipstick lesbian” of their dreams. They were the creepy straight guy sitting in a corner in masturbation prelude, gazing at us, alone, because he could. These were the heterosexual feeders nipping at the edges, the closet kinksters, who looked for a sexual “degeneracy” of their own imagining (or in some cases merely the most slight and banal flexibility of what the kids today call heteronormativity) that excited them in our spaces. They were the tourists.

Gay liberation created the hetero-queer.

Generations of homosexual community, culture, camp, dykery, humor, love, fellowship and PRIDE in the face of life-destroying lesbophobia and homophobia- including an entire generation of gay men who were allowed to die needlessly in a mass death in the most hideous pandemic imaginable- and countless gay women whose lives were ground into dust by heterosexual men and the women who love them- paid the price for the measure of “acceptance” we now have as long as we try to blend in and keep our mouths shut. What human rights we now have (in some cultures) literally rests on the bones of martyrs.

Something else resting upon the bones of our martyrs are the masses of hetero “queers” who never did anything but colonize our movement with their sheer numbers and their heterosexual male power.  They created no historical movement, because what they were doing wasn’t worth paying a price and they had no political goals. There is no “Queer” movement because they have no absence of rights. They are not oppressed because they represent the powers that be: heterosexual men.

There is no Bisexual Women’s Rights movement because there is no such thing as “biphobia”, and there is no unique Bisexual Women’s Culture because 87% of them are married to men and heteroflexibility is pretty much fine with everyone (men) since forever. Any female “queer” movement is solely occupied with colonizing, exploiting and destroying female homosexual spaces while promoting male supremacist sex-roles (“gender”).

Male queers have no historic rights movement because they are heterosexual men and the only thing they do is expand male supremacy over women. There is no hetero queer male politic. Male hetero queer “transwomen” fight tooth and nail (Revlon Red) to oppress women and uphold sexism, because they enjoy it. Control of the lower caste is their birthright and occupying that caste for their pleasure is an alpha man’s prerogative. Play along or you’ll dishonor him and make him suicide or KILL YOU. So sexay mah laydeesuit! U must affirm meh!! It’s mah Privilege!!

So now, according to “Queer Women” Heather Hogan, Trish Bendix, and Elaine Atwell: Lesbians are neo-Nazis and men (and-the-women-who-love-them) are the Jews. Lesbophobia is a word lesbians use in order to commit genocide. Lesbian Spaces and Culture exist to exterminate the men and man-loving women who demand access to us. Or something.

Gender Apostates, Then...

Gender Apostates, Then…

The following are re-posts of the writing of black transwoman Jaqueline Andrews. Andrews was a contributor to the “Gender Apostates’ website. Gender Apostates was a project undertaken by heterosexual white women “Sass” and Rebecca Reilly Cooper in support of the medicalization of “transgender women”. Their intention was to draw a distinction between males who merely self-define as “female” and males who are willing to undergo medical and surgical procedures to reduce their reproductive anatomy, which they proposed granted more authenticity to their ‘identities’. Site co-author was Miranda Yardley. Male contributors included Aoife Assumpta Hart, Jaqueline Andrews, and others.

Andrews’ work was deleted from Gender Apostates and he was erased as a contributor. I reprint the works that can be recovered here. Andrews last work ‘A Misogynist is a Misogynist by Any Other Name’ renounced the actions of co-contributor Aoife Assumpta Hart, and the concept of “gender critical transwomen’ that the site promoted.

And Now.

And Now.

 

Essays are reprinted because Jaqueline wanted to be heard and NOT erased. GenderTrender objects to the erasure of Jaqueline Andrews after his death by Gender Apostates.

Inquiries to Gender Apostates co-owner Miranda Yardley about the reasoning behind erasing all of Andrews’ work after his death were not responded to at the time of this post. 

UPDATE/CORRECTION: Miranda Yardley claimed in a tweet that Andrew’s removed his own essays. Apparently Jaqueline Andrews had archived his own work on a WordPress site in the weeks before his death (see discussion in comments). That site is here:

Less than 48 hours since the announcement of the upcoming Female Erasure anthology and the anti-women, anti-lesbian, anti-speech activists are already swarming with efforts to stop its publication. 

The book, to be published by Tidal Time Publishing under editor Ruth Barrett, features a forward by Germaine Greer and the writings of fifty women from various perspectives and backgrounds. The volume should serve as a wonderful primer for anyone interested in the conflict between women and “gender”. 

Needless to say, the individuals who are invested in forcibly imposing “gender” on women and girls -wish to censor female speech about the worldwide, violent, reproductive sex-based oppression of women and girls which transcends all cultures and eras.  

 

Female Erasure Activists discuss how sexuality absent a penis (Lesbianism!) strips it of "anything recognizably human", and book burning feminist texts.

Female Erasure Activists discuss how sexuality absent a penis (Lesbianism!) “strips it of anything recognizably human”. Oh, and book burning feminist texts.

.

Anti-feminist and anti-gay activists -mainly of the transgender variety- are already waging a campaign of harassment against the editor, the contributors, and the fundraising website being used to crowdfund the project.

Regular GenderTrender readers know that it is a rare occasion indeed that I request readers and supporters to take a particular action. I figure readers are grown-ups who can make up their own damn minds about any action they want or need to take, without me nudging them. Same with the editorial content. I present information, people can take it or leave it. I’ve never promoted my work, and I’ve never tried to censor sites with opposing views.

I am making an exception in this case. Please donate to the fundraiser for this book, and also publicize it using your blog, personal contacts or social media. If you can spare ten bucks or more, please kick it in the pot. Whether you are gay or straight, black or white, female or male, left wing or right wing, anti-gender or trans, please support the free speech of feminists critical of “gender” (and free speech in general). Thank you.

A personal note about myself. Which is even more rare than a nudge to take action on this site. I am in this book. Specifically, my book review of convicted murderer Robert Kosilek’s “memoir”, a piece I am incredibly proud of and exemplifies the best of GenderTrender in my opinion. I can’t tell you how incredibly proud I am to be published alongside Germaine Greer! Sheila Jeffreys! Elizabeth Hungerford! Lierre Keith! Julia Long! and the rest- too many fabulous names to list here. This is a really big deal to me- one of the proudest moments of my life!

YAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Please make it happen. You can do so here:

I got into a twitter discussion with the “transgender children” charity and political lobby Mermaids UK the other day after an individual presenting themselves as a representative posted a video where she stated that (although most children who are diagnosed with “Gender Dysphoria” turn out to be well-adjusted, non-transgender, adult Lesbians and Gays if allowed to mature without medical intervention) one should never mention it because homosexuality is “a deviant kind of thing”. You can view that video here and judge for yourself.

Mermaids UK responded to my request for clarification and to related questions by other tweeters with some very disturbing homophobia.

The Antioch Review Blog

It has come to our attention that an article published in the Winter 2016 issue of The Antioch Review is stirring debate in our campus and alumni communities and within the broader transgender community. Daniel Harris’ views are his own, and based on the response of some readers, are deeply offensive to many transgender individuals and supporters. Antioch College does not condone or always agree with the ideas and viewpoints expressed in the Review. We do, however, have confidence in the Review’s editor and editorial process, and support a key Antiochian value—the free expression of ideas and opinions, even when they run counter to our own. As a college, we encourage our students, faculty, and the broader community to engage in critical thought and dialogue around important issues, including this one. We believe commitments to the ideals of free expression and support for LGBTQ human and civil rights are not…

The nameless members of the Milwaukee Pride Parade Board of Directors stripped legendary rights activist Miriam Ben-Shalom of her honored spot as Grand Marshall of the June 12, 2016 “Heroes of Pride” event after men monitoring her Facebook page noticed women had made posts there that were critical of the idea of heterosexual “male lesbians”.

Miriam Ben-Shalom will be a familiar name to Lesbian and Gay Rights activists and historians. She was the first openly homosexual individual to be reinstated into military service after serving as plaintiff in multiple lawsuits and refusing a cash settlement.

benshalom-wl01-12-p

After serving in the Israeli Army as an Armored Personnel Carrier driver, she enlisted as a Staff Sergeant in the United States Army from 1974-1976, when she was dismissed on the basis of homosexuality, and served again from 1987- 1990 following her reinstatement after a decade of trials. She was then discharged, yet again, on the basis of homosexuality, ending her military career.

She co-founded the Gay, Lesbian and Bisexual Veterans of America (GLBVA) and spent another decade organizing activism against the U.S. military policy of exclusion, and later against the Clinton era “Don’t  Ask Don’t Tell” policy. She chained herself, in uniform, to the White House fence in 1993. Along with Dan Choi and other lesbian and gay service-members she was arrested after again chaining herself to the White House fence in 2010. President Barack Obama invited her to the White House in recognition of her decades of activism, she stood present when he signed the law repealing “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” later that year.

This is not the first time hetersexual male members of the “LGBT” have surveiled, attacked, and dishonored Miriam Ben-Shalom’s legacy. Last year trans activist Autumn Sandeen wrote an entire OpEd sponsored by the San Diego LGBTWeekly titled “Unknowingly protesting with a lesbian transphobe!” where he complained that he observed Miriam using the term “Woman Born Woman” on a facebook post. He said this was offensive to men because it made a distinction between individuals born male or female. He went on to state that he wished, as a heterosexual male, that he had never protested DADT, a policy which never affected straight men like himself anyway.

 

Here is the full text of the Milwaukee Pride Parade Board notification to Miriam Ben-Shalom, stripping her of Grand Marshall Honors, followed by Miriam’s response to the board:

 

Dear Ms Ben-Shalom,

I am writing you today about our offering of the 2016 Grand Marshal position to you.

The Board of Directors was excited to have an opportunity to acknowledge your many contributions to the LGBT community by offering you the Grand Marshal position for this year’s parade. However, shortly after we offered you the position, it was brought to our attention that your Facebook page contains a number of posts asserting that transwomen are a danger to young girls in public bathrooms and locker rooms. After considering these posts, it is the Board’s opinion that these posts are transphobic and as such represent an attack on an important segment of the LBGT community.

While we fully support a person’s right to express their own beliefs and political opinions, we also feel it is important that our Grand Marshals publicly declared beliefs mesh with those held by the Milwaukee Pride Parade and the Board of Directors. The Grand Marshal is the public face of the Milwauee Pride Parade and thus needs to be someone whose views are compatible with our own.

The Bylaws of the Milwaukee Pride Parade include our mission statement, “To provide an outlet to the citizens of South Eastern Wisconsin in which GLBT individuals and groups can participate in a parade to show their pride.”  We are an inclusive organization that seeks to be free of intolerance, and seeks to promote the equality of all members of the community. As such, we feel that we cannot have a Grand Marshal who has publically and repeatedly denigrated transwomen.

We wish to apologize for rescinding our offer of this honor. It is not a step that we take lightly, and it in no way should be considered a denial of the important work you have previously done for the LGBT community. Please understand this was never our intent to lead you on.

The Board of Directors would like to thank you for your understanding of this situation.

Sincerely,

The Milwaukee Pride Parade Board of Directors

Miriam Ben-Shalom’s reply:

 

To you bunch of Moral reprobates–so cowardly you can’t even post a name: Really rather a cowardly manner to deal with this. You are not correct about my FB page, although my FB page does have posts from others on it about the so-called trans issue. This issue is very sensitive for women born of women, but I would not expect men to understand. Further, no one asked me about my stance — which is very discriminatory indeed. For your information, I am indeed a PERF–penis exclusionary radical feminist who believes that women born of women have the right to safe spaces of their own and cultural events they put on for themselves and those sisters who might like to attend. After all, men have had a long history of male only spaces in the GBT community and not much ado was made of it.

I believe that gender roles ought to be abolished so that people can just be–without feeling the need to surgically change their bodies to meet binary stereotypes which are artificial and not biological. Your elimination is called sexism and is discriminatory and misogynistic.  When I consider what the trans community did to the Michigan Womyn’s Music Festival and the threats that were made there that I personally saw and heard and when I consider the threats directed at women who stand up to speak out about women’s safety, I become firmer in my estimation of who these people are and what trans means to –it appears–a great many people.  No woman I know would threaten to kill another woman because of opinion.  No woman I know would call others who differing opinions the nastiest words in the English language.  Therefore, Pride Parade Committee: You are no better then those who threatened to hurt women born of women simply because they wished to be in a nurturing environ with others who were like minded.  One may hope you take the so-called Trans community to task for all the threats and nastiness heaped on women as you took me.

I see that Milwaukee Pride cares more about men than it does about women’s safety. So be it. I was truthful about my beliefs and I hold with Thomas Paine: “It is impossible to calculate the moral mischief, if I may so express it, that mental lying has produced in society. When a man has so far corrupted and prostituted the chastity of his mind, as to subscribe his professional belief to things he does not believe, he has prepared himself for the commission of every other crime. He takes up the trade of a priest for the sake of gain, and in order to qualify himself for that trade, he begins with a perjury. Can we conceive any thing more destructive to morality than this?” Thanks for fucking me over for being honest about what I think. You are no better than the Army.>>

Should you wish more from me, I will be GLAD to cooperate.

Miriam Ben-Shalom

Reddit’s massive censorship and moderation issues reached my door when paid staff administrators informed me I was banned permanently for posting private information about another user. The only problem is that I never did any such thing. My sole history with the site was posting a few article links and making a few comments here and there, nothing notable. I assumed the accusation was yet another incidence of harassment by transgender males related to my gender-critical lesbian feminist politics. Reddit users will affirm that the male moderators of lesbian, feminist and transgender forums have a hair-trigger for banning any content relating to sexism or the oppression of female human beings based on our sex. Such content cock-blocks the redditor transgender fantasies of heterosexual male autogynephiles whose worldview depends on the total erasure of the existence of the female sex. (See numerous “I love my vagina!” titled links to dick-pics posted unmoderated in lesbian forums.)

reddit banned gallus mag

Having heard of the difficulties reddit has had with controlling site moderation I assumed in good faith that admins had banned me in error and I contacted them and invited them to read my post history and reinstate my account. What happened next entered the realm of the surreal. Reddit admin “Redtaboo” informed me that admins had been monitoring my private messages and that I was being banned on the basis that one of my private messages contained a link to a public post by an individual who was also, according to admin, a reddit member.

reddit ban private messages 1

What awful fuckery was this? According to reddit administrators, no woman may link in a private, unpublished message with another user any public post by any individual who also has (according to admin) a reddit account. According to reddit admins, any public post by any individuals known by admin to hold reddit accounts can never be mentioned in private messaging. Or something.

 

Whut? There are countless PUBLIC reddit POSTS discussing offsite PUBLIC POSTS made by individuals who also have reddit accounts. Yet lesbian feminists have our PRIVATE MESSAGES monitored by paid admins and we are banned for PRIVATELY discussing PUBLIC POSTS by individuals who may also have reddit accounts? None of this is mentioned in the TOS, of course. How curious, in that many persons publicly link to my posts, when I maintain(ed) a reddit account, and multiple public accounts impersonating me and attempting to publicly dox me on Reddit remain uncensored and unmoderated by site admin.

 

This whole absurdity made me very curious, since as I said I had only made a few posts and a handful of private messages on the reddit site. What reddit user’s public posts had I privately discussed in my private messaging that reddit admins were monitoring? Looking back at my history I noticed a few private messages had been deleted. Having sent less than a dozen private messages in my entire reddit history it wasn’t a difficult search. I had sent a PRIVATE message to another user where we laughed at the public neckbeard fedora photos of a man on twitter who stated that transgender people should be outed, doxed, publicly shamed and dis-employed via real life harassment if they support in any way the feminist critique of sex-roles. No reddit account or reddit post was mentioned. But “Redtaboo” seemed awfully concerned that the twitter doxxer linked privately in a private message was also a reddit user. (BTW the full content of my private message regarding this individual was “Neckbeard photos! Hahaha. Enjoy!”)

twitter doxxer Amy

A few seconds on Google revealed that the twitter neckbeard doxxer was reddit user Amy_of_Dallas, who is, guess what! Completely “out” about himself on reddit including posting his LinkedIn https://www.linkedin.com/in/amyjess photos where he lists both his laydee-name Amy Jess Book and his original name, Jason G. Pallack. So even if someone had made a reddit post about the twitter doxxer (which they didn’t) he’s completely out anyway. He’s completely proud of his campaign to dox and harass fellow transgender people and harass them at their jobs.

But no one did make a post about him, nor did I. I simply laughed PRIVATELY about a neckbeard fedora fool in a private message on Reddit, a website where men monitor the PRIVATE speech of women, lesbians and feminists for signs of PRIVATE LAUGHTER at ridiculous men, in order to slander, ban and censor us from public speech.
