#StickerWoman 2018. Original work.

UK- Merseyside Police launched an investigation into the activities of #StickerWoman after tip-offs* by women with penises.

#StickerWoman is an anonymous artist (like Banksy, without the establishment acclaim and institutional support) who travels throughout England, Scotland, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, and the western and central United States (Chicago, Seattle, Portland) placing stickers in public spaces.

#StickerWoman is rumored to be an unsexy, misandrist hag, (possibly lesbian), and is either a washed-up old crone or a young woman who hasn’t yet learned the lessons of life, according to reports. She may have a visible wart or mole on her person.

#StickerWoman drew the ire of authorities after posting stickers stating “Women Don’t Have Penises”. This was deemed a hate crime against people with penises, who reserve the sole legal right to define what women are. Previous controversial campaigns by #StickerWoman insinuated that prostitution is not a rewarding career trajectory for people with vaginas**.

popular Jess Bradley meme. Photo/Quotes: Sky News

Jess Bradley, the first elected Trans Officer in the UK National Union of Students, has been suspended from his paid, full-time, funded position after it was alleged that he maintained a tumblr blog called ‘Exhibitionizm’ where he allegedly posted photos of himself exposing his erect penis and/or masturbating in various public spaces including trains, bus stops, parks, and in his shared office at Manchester University. Other posts include themes of rape, pedophilia, and incest.

The charges seem to have originated on July 22, from an individual on Twitter named @xNoMoreSilencex who identifies as a “transwoman”. They posted several screen caps of the ‘Exhibitionizm’ blog, accusing Jess Bradley of sexual harassment, flashing, indecent exposure, and incitement (several of the posts involved “dares” where the blogger and his followers egged each other on to perform sexual acts in front of non-consenting bystanders and/or targets). The blog, attributed to Bradley, was deleted within hours of the public Twitter accusations.

The Twitter account accusing Bradley posted the following statement on July 23:

 

“Statement on Public Disclosures, By a Trans Woman & Survivor

We take no joy in making survivors testimony public. We have no desire for witch hunts or mob justice, and we oppose the reactionary forces in our society who will see this as an opportunity to collectively punish all trans women for the abuses perpetrated by one of us.

However, we refuse to silence survivors under the mantra of “keep it in the family”. We reject the idea that survivors are bringing shame on their own communities by coming forward. We recognise, and indeed we experience, the hyper-violence of transmisogyny.

We have to examine why the concerns raised about the amplifying effect that transmisogyny will have in calling out Jess is in focus, while the reality of the amplifying effect that the transmisogny experienced by survivors of her abuse is disregarded.

As someone who experiences transmisogny, Jess is certainly more vulnerable to our allegations, but as a popular and well connected trans organiser she also has greater access to other, more vulnerable trans people than most.

We also ask how we can credibly defend ourselves against the accusations by reactionaries, and in particular TERFs, that all trans women are rapists, if we cannot take it seriously and believe survivors when they come forward and tell us that one of our own is an abuser.

Every trans organisation that has been notified of these matters and continues to shelter an abuser is doing far more harm to trans women, in particular trans survivors but also to trans communities collectively, than any survivor coming forward ever could.

We seek restorative justice, and have no interest in punative or carceral approaches. But restorative justice must start with a genuine admission of wrongdoing, a proper engagement with accountability processes, and a meaningful surrendering of institutional power.”

 

Besides serving as the first Trans Officer of the NUS, Jess Bradley founded the controversial ‘Action for Trans Health’ organization, which demanded free sex-change drugs and surgeries (and reversal surgeries) for people of all ages, and the release of all incarcerated prisoners who identify as transgender, among other things.

Jess Bradley was selected to give testimony in Parliament to Maria Miller’s Women and Equalities Commission, and his testimony was cited seven times in her final report.

Jess Bradley, age 30, “identifies as” a bisexual “Non-Binary Woman” and does not appear to have undergone any type of transgender medical process, although he does frequently wear blue nail polish.

You can view Jess Bradley in his role as public spokesperson, being interviewed for Sky News on July 19, here:

 

 

Prior to his career in transactivism, Jess was an activist for public nudity, having organized The Manchester “Naked Tea Party”, an attempted public “mass nudity event” in 2011. Bradley also ran a website called “Naked Vegan Cooking” where himself and guests would expose themselves to viewers while preparing food.

Jess Bradley has also mounted several protests against Gay Pride marches over the years, including (but not limited to) Berlin 2009, Manchester 2010, Sheffeld 2017, Glasgow 2017.

Jess Bradley has posted a statement yesterday on his blog:

 

“statement on recent events

I have currently been suspended from my role at NUS pending an investigation. Due to my contractual obligations to keep the nature and details of the investigation confidential, there are a number of things I would like to say but am currently not able to talk about without risking my job. I appreciate at this time there is a lot of speculation about my conduct and I am able to tell you that I am confident that none of my behaviour has been unlawful, and that I have not engaged in sexual activity with anyone, or in the view of anyone, without their consent. I intend to engage cooperatively with NUS’ investigation, and hope I should be in a position to talk about the situation in full to the communities that I am accountable to.

This statement is all I am going to say on this matter until the NUS investigation is completed.”

In a final (?) twist to this story, Jess Bradley has reportedly retained the expensive celebrity law firm Carter Ruck to protect his interests in this matter. The UK tabloid The Sun reported that they were prevented from naming Bradley in their report. From the Sun: 

GAGGING FOR THE SUN The Sun barred from exposing union official over flashing claims after person uses Sir Cliff Richard privacy ruling

A top union official suspended over claims of flashing and posting vile solo sex act images online has used a privacy ruling to keep it secret

EXCLUSIVE

By Gary O’Shea and Ben Lazarus

27th July 2018, 11:03 pmUpdated: 28th July 2018, 2:08 am

A TOP union official suspended over claims of flashing has used the Sir Cliff Richard privacy ruling to keep it secret.

A whistleblower saw vile internet blog pictures of the person allegedly performing solo sex acts at work and on public transport.

A top union official suspended over claims of flashing has used the Sir Cliff Richard privacy ruling to keep it secret

An internal investigation was launched but when The Sun made inquiries, the official hired expensive celebrity lawyers Carter Ruck in a bid to avoid being named.

They argued that, as a judge last week ruled the BBC invaded Sir Cliff’s privacy by reporting a police raid at his home, the internal investigation was also private.

One sickening image allegedly shows the official exposing private parts in a union office.

Another shows flashing on a train and more pics were taken at a bus stop and in a park.

Approached by The Sun, the union confirmed the name of the person suspended. After we went to the individual for comment, lawyers insisted their client was not a public figure despite appearing regularly at public rallies and on TV news.

A union source said of the photos: “It is absolutely appalling if true. Behaviour like this  simply has no place here.”

Gavin Millar QC, who headed the BBC’s legal team in the Sir Cliff case, warned the judgment would strike a serious blow against the media

The Sun Says

THE Sun warned that the privacy ruling in the Sir Cliff Richard case would have a chilling impact on Press freedom and harm the pursuit of justice.

Mr Justice Mann set a very dangerous precedent by suggesting those under police investigation should not be named in normal circumstances.

Surprise, surprise! It took a week for us to get a legal letter citing the case to try to prevent publication of a story.

A union official has been suspended for allegedly pleasuring themselves in their office and in public and uploading pictures of their activity online.

The lawyers objected to us revealing the official’s name because they claimed an internal investigation was “private”.

The judge’s ruling is a dangerous slide towards Press censorship, at the expense of YOUR right to know.

Of course, the winners are the rich and powerful who can afford top lawyers to stop any scrutiny, regardless of the public interest.

This terrible judgment must be appealed – and quickly.

A union spokesperson said: “As a result of allegations, we can confirm ‘X’ has been suspended pending an investigation.

“Matters pertaining to the investigation are confidential to allow a fair and impartial process.”

 

From the Daily Mail:

 

“Britain’s first official ‘transgender students’ officer’ has been suspended over allegations that she posted explicit photographs on an online blog.

Jess Bradley, who was born male but refers to herself as a ‘nonbinary trans woman’, was the first person to be elected to the full-time paid role by the National Union of Students (NUS).

But she was suspended from her post last week while the NUS carries out an internal investigation into claims that she published pictures of male genitalia under the headline Exhibitionizm on her personal blog.

Shocking images on the site show an individual flashing while sitting in a train carriage, in a public park and at a bus stop.

Another photograph shows male genitals being exposed in an office close to a curved wooden desk that is strikingly similar to a picture of a work desk that Ms Bradley posted on her Facebook page.

When The Mail on Sunday set out the allegations in detail to the NUS, a spokesman confirmed Ms Bradley, 29, had been suspended from her post ‘pending an investigation’, adding: ‘The matters pertaining to the investigation are confidential to allow for a fair and impartial process. NUS will continue to support Jess, full time officers, staff and volunteers during this time.’

Ms Bradley declined to comment, but has instructed libel lawyers Carter Ruck.

The law firm sought to prevent the publication of the story on privacy grounds.

As part of its argument, it cited last week’s High Court ruling that the BBC had infringed on the privacy of Sir Cliff Richard by reporting a police raid on his home. Carter Ruck argued that, based on the judgment, a report on Ms Bradley’s suspension and the NUS investigation relating to it would be an infringement of her privacy.”

It remains to be seen how the politically powerful and monied transgender lobby and their well-heeled celebrity attorneys believe they will bury this emerging story in the internet age of #MeToo. Have they never heard of The Streisand Effect? And what will they do about all the hilarious memes?

Hilarious internet meme. (H/T LogicalMarcus)

Lesbian Pride at London Pride, July 7, 2018

Lesbians mounted a parade-stopping protest at London Pride today, July 7, 2018. They objected to the erasure of lesbians caused by so-called allies among gay, bisexual, and transgender organizations and individuals who forcibly rename lesbians as generic “queer people” and who demand that heterosexual men who sexually fetishize lesbianism must be accepted by same-sex attracted women as if they were actual lesbians.

The lesbians first gathered in front of the march, displaying their message. They carried signs and banners that read “Lesbian=Female Homosexual”, and “Lesbian Not Queer”, “Transactivism Erases Lesbians” and “Get the ‘L’ Out!”, among others. Then they lay down in the street, halting the parade and drawing attention. After a few minutes, they stood, and led the Pride March, remaining at the helm for the duration.

Lesbian Protesters halted the 2018 London Pride parade. Then they led it.

Their statement:

Why “Get The L Out” ?

Who We Are

Get the L Out is a group of lesbian and feminist individuals and organisations, opposing the increasingly anti-lesbian and misogynistic LGBT movement and the erasure of lesbians

Why We Protest

We believe that lesbian rights are under attack by the trans movement and we encourage lesbians everywhere to leave the LGBT and form their own independent movement, as well as to be vocal and take action against the proposed changes to the GRA.

Get the L Out believes trans politics (with uncritical support from the LGBT movement) does the following:

Promotes the social transition of lesbians, encouraging them to present as straight men thus favouring the pretence of heterosexuality over lesbianism – this is nothing more than a form of conversion therapy.
Promotes the medical transition of lesbians and pushes harmful drugs (untested hormone blockers, Lupron etc.) as well as unnecessary medical practices on perfectly healthy bodies – these are a form of misogynist medical abuse against lesbians.

Promotes the rights of heterosexual males who “identify” as women and lesbians (despite most of them still retaining their male genitals) over the rights of lesbians to choose their sexual partners. This new ‘queer’ LGBT politics thus coerces lesbians to accept the penis as a female organ and promotes heterosexual intercourse between male and female as a form of lesbian sex. This is simply a new facet to rape culture and compulsory heterosexuality.

What we Believe

“The trans movement with the complicity of ‘queer’ LGBT politics is coercing lesbians to have sex with men. We firmly condemn this vicious form of lesbophobia disguised as progress”.

“We stand for the rights of lesbians to choose their sexual partners on the basis of their sex not their “gender identity” and condemn any pressure on lesbians to accept so called “trans women” as potential sex partners and the penis as a female organ as coercive and a manifestation of rape culture”

“We oppose the transition of young lesbians on the basis that their appearances or behaviour does not conform to socially accepted images of women. Having short hair and disliking pink is not a sign of having a male brain and does not mean one requires transition. The trans movement is a conservative movement which reinforces sexist sex stereotypes.”

“We oppose proposed changes to the GRA and view self-identification as a threat to women’s and girls rights.

“We demand stronger sex-based protections for women and girls and that women maintain the right to sex-segregated spaces at the exclusion of male regardless of their “identity”.”

This action is supported by a number of individual Lesbians and Lesbian supporters, as well as Critical Sisters, Mayday4Women, Object ! and The Lesbian Rights Alliance

Video of the protest here [* THIS IS THE BEST VIDEO EVER! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! The whole thing is testerically narrated by various sick-ass dude-bros- LOLOLOLOLOLOL] :

The lesbian protest was greeted with cheers from the crowd. Up to a million onlookers flanked the streets to view the parade. Some of the men who demand the right to be recognized as “male lesbians” responded poorly- one of the crossdressers claimed he was warned by police to stop abusing the women.

Man fights for his right to be a lesbian.

Another heterosexual man who demands to be recognized as a female homosexual by lesbians reportedly hurled a water bottle at the women, which apparently hit a police officer.

Men representing the UK ‘Pink News’ click-bait website, (which lesbians colloquially refer to as “Penis News” or “Prick News” due to their anti-lesbian and anti-woman editorial slant), ranted on the site’s Pride March video feed about how the parade “Isn’t going the way it’s supposed to be going!”, complaining that the event has “been significantly disrupted!”. On the website’s livefeed of the event, the men from Pink News call for the lesbian Pride marchers to be dragged off by police and arrested. “They’re free to distribute their leaflets? I don’t think anyone from Pride has reviewed them!” one of the men from Penis News exclaimed with distress about the lesbian marchers.

The lesbians were supported by the crowd, and went on to lead the parade at the helm for the entire route. They were widely applauded by onlookers. They handed out informative literature to onlookers as they marched, some of which is reproduced here:

More coverage of the lesbian 2018 London Pride protest (and the reaction to it) will be posted in the thread below.

 

Reports are coming in of a series of violent attacks on lesbian marchers at yesterday’s San Francisco Dyke March 2018. The women were targeted on the basis of their signs which referenced lesbianism as a female-specific orientation. These signs offended the heterosexual transgender marchers who believe males should have the prerogative to “identify as” lesbian and that women who reject this premise should be targeted for violence.

The following are testimonies from various attendees who were attacked:

“I was the one. Knocked down, tripped, purse ripped away from me, glasses knocked to ground and my sign snatched and taken once and then retrieved by a badass stranger first, then again a second time it was forcefully grabbed and taken and later we found remnant blocks away ripped up. [Redacted] was surrounded, pushed down three times, sign grabbed. It was ripped up and she grabbed it back and held up torn pieces of it defiantly until the end of the march.

I kept yelling that we didn’t hate anyone, this was dyke march, we are dykes and that we were NOT transphobic. We aren’t AFRAID of trans people, we were not going to be silenced, we were not going to leave or put our signs down. Over and over again I said “we are not being violent, don’t touch us, we center women-safe spaces, we are fighting lesbian and female erasure, we care about the welfare of children who are being supported and even pushed to chemically and physically alter themselves without advocates for their future health, we are being peaceful, we belong here, this is our right and our space. We are not violent.”

We played an important role in being visible, even if we were knowingly outnumbered and villified. We looked directly into the eyes of those accusing US of hate. They yelled terfs go home, transphobia’s got to go, bullhorns in our ears, a woman stepped on the back of my shoes deliberately repeatedly and when I told her don’t fucking touch me she said “come on, hit me bitch!” I said we were not going away and we were not violent to which she said they would be.

There is so much more to say…. I’m still collecting my thoughts. I’m sore. I will say though, we did exactly what we said we were going to do. We held our signs high. We stared into a mob of anger and did not back down. We were there to show that there IS a contingency of us-RADICAL FEMINISTS- who will fight for lesbian visibility and for female biology and safe spaces. We were small and mighty and older and wiser. We were fierce and powerful. We were the better people. I don’t regret one minute of it because sometimes you just have to walk the walk…. literally.”

Various sources claim to have video of these attacks, they will be added to this post when available.

Men who identify as transgender lesbians were widely represented at the march, including the Anti-Lesbian ANTIFA group Degenderettes, who left their barbed-wire wrapped baseball bats at home, instead marching with tone deaf banners such as “Be Gay Do Crimes” and the female erasing “We stand with women AND cis women” (“Cis” is a modifier used by trans activists to reduce actual women to a subset of a new category of “women” dominated by males.)

More coverage will be added to this post as it becomes available.

Added: Spin from the San Francisco Dyke March organizers – blaming the lesbians for being attacked by men:

Every block there was “TERF Noise” which “needed to be shut down”.
