A nut job San Francisco man named Daniel Davis posted video of himself creating an incident outside the women’s restroom at the Las Vegas NYNY hotel. Various media outlets are picking it up.

Dan is a man who has been taking estrogen pills for seven months after discovering his ladygender through porn consumption, strip clubs, and 4Chan. 

Contrary to his claim to the employee in the video that: “You are the only person who has this policy! Sweetheart I’ve been using the women’s room all over this city and you are the only ones in this fucking city…Dan posted 6 days ago about having security called on him in the women’s restroom at the MGM Grand.

Dan’s trail of bathroom incidents

In another post he complains that “It’s just been such a difficult struggle to be confronted in 50% of the bathrooms in this city I’ve used…“.

Mr. Davis, a heterosexual military man who calls himself “Katie”, or sometimes “Katie Charm“, posted a follow up video appealing to the fee-fees of the “entitled twits” and “bitches” which is what he calls women who are alarmed at his presence when they’re trying to change their tampons in peace.

There is absolutely no reason for sociopathic men like Dan to be permitted to go around frightening women in the women’s restrooms.

There is a restroom for males, Dan. Use it.

Jeremiah “Mya” Byrne. “TransDyke” Antifa at San Francisco Gay Pride 2017.

What is Antifa?

Well, the name Antifa is a bit of a misnomer. Antifa is short for “Anti-Fascist”, which is what the members of this subculture claim to be. Their stated objective is to fight totalitarianism, authoritarianism, and the forceful suppression of diversity and dissent.

In practice, Antifa is a group of people, mainly middle-class young white men, who show up to violently attack groups of right wingers, Trumpers, leftist free speech advocates, or anyone else they’ve decided must be silenced by intimidation and violent force. Some of them claim to be Communists, but they don’t do anything to organize support for labor or poor people.

What they do is show up for internet-organized flash mobs, all dressed in uniform black (“Black Bloc”) so they can’t be individually identified for their criminal actions, covering their faces with bandanas, armed with weighted sticks, bicycle locks, fireworks, and pepper spray. Then they batter and bash a bunch of people indiscriminately before going home to smoke pot and watch Netflix.

It’s like a non-consensual fight club for virtue-signaling trust-funders looking for violent thrills on the weekend. Like ‘Occupy Wall Street’ with less head lice, drums, (and commitment!) and more anonymity, fleeting destruction, and random battery. If you haven’t been following the Antifa trend, Google “Battle for Berkley” and watch one of the livestreams.

What is a “TransDyke”?

TransDykes are an offshoot of Antifa whose focus is on suppressing the speech of women, mainly lesbians. They participate in regular Antifa flashmobs, sometimes in pastel uniform (“Pastel Bloc”) but also target Women’s Rights events, and Lesbian spaces.

TransDykes are heterosexual men who identify as transwomen. They consider Lesbianism a form of fascism because female homosexuality excludes male-bodied persons. But any woman who publicly acknowledges the existence of biologically female human beings is their enemy, especially Feminists, who want to abolish, not celebrate, the sex stereotypes that transwomen identify with.

Scout Tran-Caffee founder of TransDyke

TransDykes were founded by Scout Tran-Caffee, a class-privileged heterosexual man who grew up in the Silicon Valley before obtaining a Masters Degree in Art in Chicago. After initially embarking on a career as a comic book artist, Scout decided he identified as a transwoman and relocated to the Bay Area, where he started a studio called “Scout’s Artillary” (get it?) where he began marketing trans-identified assault weaponry such as pink and blue baseball bats, axes, and sling shots. Since discovering his true mission, he still occasionally revisits his artistic past to post drunken stick figure comic strips on his Instagram account about the trauma of his thwarted desire to mace lesbians in gay bars.

Tran-Caffee had initially named his anti-lesbian anti-feminist activist group for heterosexual male transwomen “The Degenderettes” but it caused confusion and didn’t take. While intended as a saucy amalgamation celebrating “degenerate” plus “gender” it had the unfortunate implication of “de-gendering”, which is the opposite of the TransDyke mission. Without gender, there would be no transgender, and no basis for attacking lesbians for being gay!

The TransDyke Anti-Lesbian Antifa launched their first campaign against women at the San Francisco Women’s March on January 21, 2017 when they appeared as a  group of marching men twirling pink and blue baseball bats under a banner proclaiming “TransDykes Still Here”.

How offensive is this display at a Gay Pride celebration when an entire generation of gay men have died from a pandemic which was allowed to kill because the victims were expendable? How offensive is this at a gay pride event following the mass murder in Orlando? “Queers” Never Die??? The incredible tone-deafness. And what about the continual death mongering of the transgender movement celebrating suicide and transgender people who are killed each year by their partners or johns? WOW.

Then we have TransDyke Antifa member and Advocate writer Jeremiah “Mya” Byrne, formerly a folk singer of little notice, currently best known for his campaign against B52s singer Kate Pierson because the title of her song in favor of gender blending: ‘Mister Sister’ offended him, and his poetry about how he discovered his transwoman identity by masturbating in his sister’s stolen underwear. 

Jeremiah represented the TransDyke Antifa at the San Francisco Pride Parade by wearing a blood splattered T-shirt calling for violence against Lesbians- whom he calls “TERFS”, an acronym meaning Transwoman Excluding Radical Feminists and expressed as “terf” a substrate whose purpose is for male to walk on.

The deranged Mya Byrne, a heterosexual man, expresses his history as a violent batterer of women, a man who punches women, and goes on to claim that heterosexual male violence against women is an expression of “Gay Pride”. Don’t believe me? Here it is:

Violence against Women is the Straight Male version of “Pride” says batterer Jeremiah Byrne.

TransDyke Antifa:
1. Violent threatening Intent against Lesbians
2. Wearing Face Mask
3. Tried to enter with weapon (weighted stick).

 

Be aware. There’s a crazy-ass woman-hating subculture of straight men who identify as transwomen and they call themselves TransDykes or Pastel Bloc. They are violent men and you are their number one enemy.

 

‘Are You Ready For Resistance?’ asks the 2017 Left Forum conference, scheduled on June 2nd through the 4th at New York’s John Jay College.

From their website:

“Left Forum provides a context for the critical conversations that are essential for a stronger Left and a more just society.

Each spring Left Forum convenes the largest gathering in North America of the US and international Left. Continuing a tradition begun in the 1960s, we bring together intellectuals and organizers to share perspectives, strategies, experience and vision. For the US and the world, revitalizing an American Left has never been more urgent; Left Forum has a critical role to play in that undertaking.

Our work parallels and cross-fertilizes with the renewal of left, progressive, radical and social movement strength elsewhere—from indigenous movements in Bolivia to the South Korean farmers to the electoral gains of European and Latin American left parties. Like many movements abroad, Left Forum seeks to link the critique of neo-liberalism to anti-capitalism and to foster radical alternatives to the established order. Left Forum provides a context for critical engagement by people of different persuasions who, nevertheless, seek common ground.”

 

What the Left Forum is NOT ready for, apparently, is a Feminist critique of the bio-medical industry funding behind the transgender movement, and the impact on gender nonconforming children and the lesbian, gay, and women’s communities.

The following scheduled panel has been no-platformed by Left Forum organizers and removed from their website:

Canada’s Bill C-16 would establish a government recognized class of people based on their personal feeling that sex stereotypes form an integral and desired component of their legal identity.

“Gender Identity” is defined under Bill C-16 as:

Gender identity is each person’s internal and individual experience of gender. It is their sense of being a woman, a man, both, neither, or anywhere along the gender spectrum. A person’s gender identity may be the same as or different from the gender typically associated with their sex assigned at birth. For some persons, their gender identity is different from the gender typically associated with their sex assigned at birth; this is often described as transgender or simply trans. Gender identity is fundamentally different from a person’s sexual orientation.

http://news.gc.ca/web/article-en.do?mthd=index&crtr.page=1&nid=1066589

“Gender” itself is not defined by Bill C-16. Therefore “Gender Identity” is each person’s internal and individual experience of a legally undefined quality.

“Gender Identity” is legally recognized on the basis that an individual proclaims that they have the feelings of having such an identity.

“Gender Identity” would override legal recognition of, and protections based on, “Sex”.

For one example, an incarcerated male’s declaration of his internal and individual experience of “Gender Identity” overrides the Sex-based protections of Canadian female prisoners not to be confined with males. This allows Canada’s government to contravene the United Nations Standard Minimum Rules for the Treatment of Prisoners:

8.a. (a) Men and women shall so far as possible be detained in separate institutions; in an institution which receives both men and women the whole of the premises allocated to women shall be entirely separate;

http://www.ohchr.org/EN/ProfessionalInterest/Pages/TreatmentOfPrisoners.aspx

Convicted male contract killer Jean-Paul “Fallon” Aubee has already applied for transfer to a women’s facility based on his internal and individual experience of an undefined quality (“Gender Identity”):

This is pretty funny. An academic on the tenure track in the field of philosophy at Rhodes College named Rebecca Tuvel wrote an article titled “In Defense of Transracialism” which she was selected to present in January at the American Philosophical Association’s Eastern Division conference. https://apaonline.site-ym.com/?page=2017E_Accepted  This was a pretty big deal for someone in her line of work. Only the cream of the crop make the cut and the competition is tough.

Near as I can understand it, the field of academic philosophy involves the application of logic to various questions. Like mathematics, practitioners attempt to follow their computations to an unassailable conclusion supported by data. Then their opponents try to pick holes in either their logic or their data. It’s like a nightmare form of Twitter where every reply requires a 2500 word rebuttal. A brutally unromantic, areligious, aspiration to the highest levels of human thought, all couched in various fightclub lingo only understood by other initiates.

Anyway, Rebecca Tuvel examined the logic behind white Rachel Dolezal identifying as black (transracial), and male Bruce Jenner identifying as female (transgender), and concluded that the premise was one and the same and we could either affirm both identities, or neither. Further, she argued that society had reason to support such identities, and had precedent in doing so. You can read her paper in full here: https://gendertrender.wordpress.com/in-defense-of-transracialism-rebecca-tuvel/

All of this was well and good until a site specifically concerned with women’s liberation, the (ostensibly) feminist philosophy journal Hypatia, reprinted Tuvel’s article. Like all places and spaces dedicated to the specific interests of female human beings Hypatia was heavily monitored by those who wish to preserve sex-roles and police the women who protest or critique them. Particularly the men who identify as transwomen and those who champion them in that endeavor. Long story short, the shit hit the fan!

No one had any idea how to counter her logical arguments. They could easily prove Rachel Dolezal wasn’t actually black, but the same arguments applied to Caitlyn Jenner proved he was a sexist man performing a ghastly pantomime of womanhood. Not only could they not rebut her argument but they couldn’t stop people from reading it, so they did what every gender panicked soul who hates the idea that sex roles are culturally created to ritualize female subordination to males is left to do: Silence, censor, smear, threaten, defame.

Heterosexual white female Nora Berenstain of the University of Tennessee accused Tuvel of being a violent perpetrator:

“Tuvel enacts violence and perpetuates harm in numerous ways throughout her essay. She deadnames a trans woman [Bruce Jenner]. She uses the term “transgenderism.” She talks about “biological sex” and uses phrases like “male genitalia.” She focuses enormously on surgery, which promotes the objectification of trans bodies. She refers to “a male-to- female (mtf) trans individual who could return to male privilege,” promoting the harmful transmisogynistic ideology that trans women have (at some point had) male privilege.”

https://gendertrender.wordpress.com/nora-berenstain-on-rebecca-tuvel-and-hypatia/

Heterosexual white female Alexis Shotwell of Carleton University  https://twitter.com/alexisshotwell organized a demand letter for censorship claiming that Rebecca Tuvel’s work fails standards of scholarship:

Call for censorship signed by Jack Halbersham

In response, the moderators of the Hypatia facebook page, representing “A Majority of the Hypatia’s Board of Associated Editors” (whatever that means) censored and deleted all previous related posts and announced an unauthorized (?) apology from Hypatia stating that academic philosophy should never hurt the feelings of people who like sex roles:

Hypatia: A Journal of Feminist Philosophy

23 hrs ·

To our friends and colleagues in feminist philosophy,

We, the members of Hypatia’s Board of Associate Editors, extend our profound apology to our friends and colleagues in feminist philosophy, especially transfeminists, queer feminists, and feminists of color, for the harms that the publication of the article on transracialism has caused. The sources of those harms are multiple, and include: descriptions of trans lives that perpetuate harmful assumptions and (not coincidentally) ignore important scholarship by trans philosophers; the practice of deadnaming, in which a trans person’s name is accompanied by a reference to the name they were assigned at birth; the use of methodologies which take up important social and political phenomena in dehistoricized and decontextualized ways, thus neglecting to address and take seriously the ways in which those phenomena marginalize and commit acts of violence upon actual persons; and an insufficient engagement with the field of critical race theory. Perhaps most fundamentally, to compare ethically the lived experience of trans people (from a distinctly external perspective) primarily to a single example of a white person claiming to have adopted a black identity creates an equivalency that fails to recognize the history of racial appropriation, while also associating trans people with racial appropriation. We recognize and mourn that these harms will disproportionately fall upon those members of our community who continue to experience marginalization and discrimination due to racism and cisnormativity.

It is our position that the harms that have ensued from the publication of this article could and should have been prevented by a more effective review process. We are deeply troubled by this and are taking this opportunity to seriously reconsider our review policies and practices. While nothing can change the fact that the article was published, we are dedicated to doing what we can to make things right. Clearly, the article should not have been published, and we believe that the fault for this lies in the review process. In addition to the harms listed above imposed upon trans people and people of color, publishing the article risked exposing its author to heated critique that was both predictable and justifiable. A better review process would have both anticipated the criticisms that quickly followed the publication, and required that revisions be made to improve the argument in light of those criticisms.

We would also like to explain our review process. Manuscripts sent to Hypatia are sent out for peer review to two anonymous reviewers. The reviewers do not see the names of the author of the manuscript, and the identity of peer reviewers is not known to authors. The journal has had a long-standing policy of minimizing desk rejections due to its commitment to providing constructive feedback to feminist scholars. Revised manuscripts are also sent to the same readers for review. In the case where two peer readers disagree, a third anonymous reader may be found. Members of the Associate Editorial Board might be asked to provide another opinion and are expected to serve as readers on two articles each year. Some have wanted us to reveal the identities of the peer reviewers for this article. We cannot do this. We are a scholarly journal committed to an anonymous peer review process. We want readers to feel free to offer their honest feedback on manuscripts submitted to Hypatia. Anonymous peer review is important for the scholarly reputation of Hypatia; mistakes in particular instances should not compromise the commitment to anonymous peer review in scholarship.

In addition, to reconsidering our review policies, we are drafting a policy on name changes that will govern review of all work considered for publication in the journal from this point forward. We wish to express solidarity with our trans colleagues in our condemnation of deadnaming. It is unacceptable that this happened, and we are working to ensure that it never happens again. We also wish to express solidarity with our colleagues of color (understanding that gender and race are entangled categories) in our condemnation of scholarship about racial identity that fails to reflect substantive understanding of and engagement with critical philosophy of race. We are working to develop additional advisory guidelines to ensure that feminist theorists from groups underrepresented in our profession, including trans people and people of color, are integrated in the various editorial stages. This does not mean that we want to place future responsibility solely on transfeminists and feminists of color. We are committed to improving our review process and practice in order to make the best decision about publication and to prevent similar mistakes in the future.

Hypatia is a journal committed to pluralist feminist inquiry and has been an important site for the publication of scholarship long-considered marginal in philosophy. Too many of us are still characterized as “not real” philosophers by non- and anti-feminist colleagues. As a feminist journal, Hypatia is committed to providing mentorship to all who submit articles by encouraging substantive feedback on essays submitted for consideration. Clearly there was a mistake along the line in the review process, and we are doing our best to figure out a way forward.

Several further types of responses have been suggested to us, including issuing a retraction and setting up a blog or website for further conversation about how to move forward and improve our process. We continue to consider those responses and all of their potential ramifications thoughtfully. We welcome more feedback and suggestions, as we intend to learn from this mistake and do our best to be accountable and worthy of the trust of all feminist scholars.

Finally, we want to recognize that following the publication of the article, there was a Facebook post from the Hypatia account that also caused harm, primarily by characterizing the outrage that met the article’s publication as mere “dialogue” that the article was “sparking.” We want to state clearly that we regret that the post was made.

We sincerely thank all who have expressed criticism of the article’s publication and who have called on us to reply. Working through conflicts, owning mistakes, and finding a way forward is part of the crucial, difficult work that feminism does. As members of Hypatia’s editorial board we are taking this opportunity to make Hypatia more deeply committed to the highest quality of feminist scholarship, pluralism, and respect. The words expressed here cannot change the harm caused by the fact of the article’s publication, but we hope they convey the depth and sincerity of our commitment to make necessary changes to move forward and do better.

Sincerely,

A Majority of the Hypatia’s Board of Associated Editors

As you can see, no rebuttal of Rebecca Tuvel’s arguments exist. Her paper was vetted by both the American Philosophical Association and the Hypatia Journal.

The capitulation to genderist harassment by some members of the Hypatia organization who have taken control over their facebook content (Board of Associated Editors have no input or control over editorial decisions, they seem to be interns) has raised the alarms among academic philosophers.

Leiter Reports calls for a defamation lawsuit against the genderists:

Daily Nous did a piece in response with a comment by Rebecca Tuvel:

http://dailynous.com/2017/05/01/philosophers-article-transracialism-sparks-controversy/

The jist of all of the protest seems to be that if transgender people were what they actually are (Not the other sex! As Dolezal is Not Black!) it would be the most awful thing imaginable.
