Tanis Wolf / Tara Flik Wolf/Tara Flik Wood

Justice prevails in the case of the young man who punched and beat Maria MacLachlan in Hyde Park on September 13 of last year as she was en route to a discussion of changes to the legal rights of women caused by a proposed re-write of the UK Gender Recognition Act. The discussion was hosted by women’s group We Need To Talk.

Tara Flik Wood (born Tanis Wolf) had posted on Facebook his intent to inflict violence on feminists before committing the attack, and his assault was captured on video by at least three people.

Assailant posted statement of intent. (Facebook)

Wolf launched a public defense campaign#FreeTheSheWolf” apparently based on the Nazi “sexploitation” B-movie “Ilsa: SheWolf of the SS”.

The transgender community widely supported Wolf/Wood’s violent actions, including many high profile trans activists such as Roz Kaveney, Ruth Pearce, Owen Jones, Shon Faye, Katelyn Burns, Bex Stinson, Zinnia Jones, among others, who considered the assault of Maria MacLachlan as a type of male “honor” crime against a woman they suspected of not adhering to their gender beliefs. No transgender rights organization, LGBT group, or transgender activist publicly condemned his assault.

Wolf was accompanied to court by Ananya Jaidev, an Oxford graduate in Literature who is reportedly herself under investigation for assaulting a woman outside a different February 2018 discussion on the impact to women’s rights caused by proposed changes to the Gender Recognition Act. She allegedly struck and snatched the eyeglasses off the face of a woman exiting the event.  Ananya Jaidev is a member of fringe group Sister’s Uncut. The group was started in 2014 as a direct action protest against government cuts to women’s services, but rapidly degenerated into a venue for posh young people to demand that strangers affirm the indefinable “gender identities” of those who believe reproductive classification should be determined by personality.

Other supporters of Tanis/Tara Wolf/Wood outside the courtroom included the unidentified blonde woman who told Times reporter Janice Turner “I’m happy they hit her” as well as a throng of Antifa men wearing masks to conceal their identities. Worth mention were a couple of basement dwellers outfitted in full combat gear who brought their pit bull for support.

Ready for combat, #FreeTheSheWolf trial attendees.

The transgender warrior tried to claim in court that he was terrified that photos of himself would be used to horrifically “out” him online as shamefully trans, but he had a public Facebook account where he was “out” and also a crowdfunder e-begging for plastic surgery money. The day after he attacked Maria he posted a succinct update to that crowdfunder, a death threat to feminists: “#DeadTerfs“.

On the first day of the two day trial, District Judge Kenneth Grant ordered the victim to pretend in court that the man who punched her was not male.

Judge Kenneth Grant ordered a woman who was assaulted by a man specifically because she is female to pretend she believes he is also female, because the male perpetrator identifies as transgender.

The Telegraph reports:

He said: “The defendant wished to be referred to as a woman, so perhaps you could refer to her as ‘she’ for the purpose of the proceedings.”

Ms MacLachlan replied: “I’m used to thinking of this person who is a male as male.”

Even the prejudicial court couldn’t hand wave the overwhelming evidence though, and so:

Guilty verdict. Women held in court due to danger from violent trans activists.

There it is. If you’re a 26 year old man with a hairdo and some lipstick you can punch a 61 year old woman in the face whenever you suspect she doesn’t really believe you are actually a woman. LGBT lobbying orgs will support you, and trash your victim. Transgender activists will embrace you and contribute money to you. The male judge will order the woman you punched to pretend she thinks you are female. You will pay a £400 fine and serve no jail time and no parole. Consider it the price to pay for your honor.

On the other hand, as @MayDay4Women opines:

A £430 doesn’t seem like much. No community service. No jail time. But, importantly, it means this violent man is barred forever from working with vulnerable groups, so blocked from working in schools, care homes etc. and now has various travel restrictions.

So at least that’s something. Until he changes his name again and gets a Gender Recognition Certificate and his records are sealed to “protect his gender identity”.

No wonder these guys hate their “dead names”.

But we’ll remember. And in time, we’ll undo the harms legal “gender recognition” perpetrates on all of us of the female sex, all of the Maria MacLachlan’s of the world.

Boston bound- Stevie Romer (Image Credit: Marathon Investigation.com)

The Boston Marathon- where officials once tried to drag Kathrine Switzer off the field by brute force– has announced that any man can now compete as a female without restriction. There is no requirement for any social or medical “gender” change, simply a declaration that one “feels like” a woman, at least on the day of the race.

ABC News reports at least five men who identify as transgender have qualified and are set to race:

“In 1967, a Boston Marathon official nearly dragged a woman off the course after she managed to enter the men’s-only race. Five decades later, race officials aren’t as concerned about gender boundaries: They’re now publicly acknowledging that transgender runners can compete using the gender they identify with.

“We take people at their word. We register people as they specify themselves to be,” said Tom Grilk, chief of the Boston Athletic Association, the group behind the race. “Members of the LGBT community have had a lot to deal with over the years, and we’d rather not add to that burden.”

At least five openly transgender women are signed up to run the storied 26.2-mile race through Boston and its suburbs April 16.”

Some of the men have had hormones and surgery and some have not, ABC News reports:

“Stevie Romer, a transgender woman from Woodstock, Illinois, says she registered for Boston as a woman because that’s what she is. Although she hasn’t done anything to lower her testosterone levels, Romer legally changed her gender, grew her hair out and started living openly as a woman more than a year ago.

“To be able to experience it as me was really, really important,” she said. “I’ve been a runner since as long as I can remember. I love running, but I just happen to be transgender.”

Marathon Investigation’s report – which opines that males racing as women isn’t fair, but should be allowed because male feelings are more important than women’s opportunities in sport- contains a long long PDF authored by Stevie Romer, age 53, which contains his life story, which is a very boring typical autogynephile trajectory. Feel free to check it out.

 

Amelia Gapin (Women’s Running Cover 2016)

Amelia Gapin, 35, of July 2016 Women’s Running cover fame, will be running as female.

Gapin claimed in the February 2017 issue of the magazine that he underwent penile inversion surgery largely on the basis that the Boston Marathon required it (at the time) for him to compete in the female category. Whoops!

“She has been on hormones for three years, and says she had been back and forth about surgery for a while. She hesitated for many reasons, not the least of which was the apprehension and fear she had of the long and intense post-operation recovery period. She finally decided to undergo the procedure, because “my big goal is to qualify for the Boston Marathon, and I can’t qualify for it as a woman without having surgery,” she says. “I knew the recovery process would be tough, and knowing that I wouldn’t be able to run for some months was holding me back—but it was also starting to increasingly feel as though not having surgery was holding me back from running, so I finally decided to do it.”

Running Magazine reports that male Ultrarunner Grace Fisher, 37, is expected to run as female:

Folio Weekly reports that Florida runner Erin Taylor, former Marine Corps Ironman, is very confident he will be racing in the female category next week.

NPR reports that Race officials are likely to wave the usual ID checks required of participants in the case of males who would like to run in the female category:

“In the case of Boston, registrants are required to show a government-issued ID to get a bib number. The BAA says, “We do compare the ID with the person’s qualification-associated gender description.”

The organization has not said specifically how it would handle cases when a registrant’s ID differs from the gender they qualified under, but it tells NPR:

“Should such a situation arise, we would make every effort to address it in a manner intended to be fair to all concerned, with a strong emphasis on inclusion.”

 

“Fair to all concerned”? Since this policy will only benefit male competitors (females racing as male would confer no advantage) we will have to assume the only women’s sports participants the Boston Athletic Association is “concerned” about …are male.
