A public debate was scheduled in London between feminists and transgender activists over the conflict of interest between women’s rights and the transgender movement, specifically the impact of proposed changes to the UK Gender Recognition Act. The event was titled ‘What is Gender? The Gender Recognition Act and Beyond’.

At debate is the proposal to eliminate the legal classification of women as ‘adult female human beings’ to be replaced with ‘Gender Identity’, an undefined and subjective feeling with no stated characteristics that is unrelated to biological sex. This would allow males who declare this personal feeling to opt into female areas of public life set aside to promote equality for women and protection from male violence (female prisons, female change rooms, female scholarships, etc.). Transgender activists seek the elimination of women as a legal class on the premise that doing so would improve the mental health of a small minority of males who believe biological sex does not exist.

The debate was scheduled for Wednesday September 13 at London’s New Cross Learning Center. Speakers were:

Bex Stinson, transgender liaison at StonewallUK,

a second representative of StonewallUK,

lesbian feminist Julia Long,

and gender critical transsexual Miranda Yardley.

On September 11, following complaints from trans activists, Bex Stinson pulled out of the engagement, citing personal reasons for being unable to meet his professional commitments. The other StonewallUK representative followed suit.

The event was to go forward with featured speakers Dr. Julia Long and Miranda Yardley.

Event Flyer

Following the abandonment of the discussion by StonewallUK, transgender activists complained that their point of view was unrepresented because they refused to participate and the remaining transsexual speaker (Miranda Yardley) did not support eliminating women’s rights under the Gender Recognition Act. Working under the belief that women have no right to discuss proposed changes to the legal status of women, they organized to prevent women from meeting or speaking about their legal status.

Their tactics included, among other things, disrupting the meeting with noise:

Goldsmith’s Emergency: ‘Disrupt and Drown Out’ the discussion of women’s legal status

And attempting to No-Platform by harassing the venue:

Activists directed to harass the venue

 

On September 12, the event venue, New Cross Community Library, no-platformed the discussion, citing safety concerns:

 

In 2017, in London, it is not safe for women to discuss the legal status of women.

 

As a result of the last minute no-platforming by the NewCross Community Library, the event was diverted to an undisclosed location with a public meet-up to be held, ironically, at Speakers Corner in Hyde Park.

Transgender activists responded by trying to locate the new venue so the conversation could be prevented:

Stalkers stalk

 

On the date of the discussion, September 13, the group ‘Action For Trans Health London’ issued the following:

Urgent call to suppress women’s speech

Text of their post (now deleted):

CW, TW: transmisogny, transphobia.

PLEASE be mindful of people’s capacity and experiences before inviting people to this event. This event has been circulated widely particularly amongst the trans community, but please don’t expect people of trans experience to be able to engage directly with those who target, vilify and abuse them. The two speakers have a history of launching absolutely unwarranted campaigns of violent harrassment against women of trans experience and therefore allies and those who don’t experience transmisogny are primarily who should be called upon to defend against TERFs. Bear this in mind before you ‘invite all’ – thank you.

It has come to our attention that a NEW VENUE is platforming transmisogynists and TERFs at an event TODAY(Wednesday 13th September 7-9pm) , claiming to ‘debate’ the Gender Recognition Act.

Scheduled to speak are a notoriously transmisogynistic ‘feminist’ author, Julia Long, and a ‘gender critical’ trans woman, Miranda Yardley, both of whom regularly propagate deeply hateful views, misgendering, vilifying and targeting women of trans experience and trans feminine people. Representatives from Stonewall have (understandably) pulled out, making the event nothing more than a platform for hate speech.

Transmisogny can never be legitamised or tolerated as ‘debate’,

This is violence. We know that when Trans Exclusionary Radical Feminists (TERFs) speak, they enact, encourage and condone violence against women of trans experience, transfeminine people and those who experience transmisogny.

One trans woman does not speak for all people of trans experience, particularly when she does not experience the extreme risks of violence faced by trans people of colour.

We know TERFSs are not and will never be interested in being challenged via ‘debate’. We are not interested in engaging with them on those terms.

*** A4TH London cannot guarantee the number of people who will be in attendance to protest or disrupt this event, but we encourage you to use this space to organise with other people of trans experience and cis allies**

******WHAT YOU CAN DO (even if you can’t come )*******

FIND OUT WHERE IT IS

————————SHARE THIS EVENT WIDELY—————————

Don’t just click ‘attending’, start a Whatsapp group, a message thread – tell your friends, activist networks, make an action plan, share templates for emails or tweets or phone conversations. Post on their FB page // drawing attention to the event (FB Event page now deleted) and stating your opposition.

IMPORTANT: the organiser of the event has no interest in cancelling or engaging (of course) so the most we can do is be a nuisance.

———————————FLOOD THEIR INBOX—————————-

USE EVERY EMAIL ADDRESS YOU HAVE asking them to:

– Cancel the event, considering it can no longer even claim to be a ‘debate’ now that there is no ‘opposition’.

– BUT *please don’t forget* to highlight that there is NO DEBATE when it comes to the lives and experiences of the trans community – questioning and theorising over the validity or reality of lived experience IS VIOLENCE, is TRANSPHOBIA and is not acceptable.

– Encourage them to make a public statement apologising for hosting the event and claiming responsibility for platforming transmisogny and hate.

——————–ON THE DAY,
JOIN US OUTSIDE from 6:30pm ————-

It is a high unlikely that this event will be cancelled. The organiser has made that clear.
We must be there to expose the reality of the event inside.

We must be there in solidarity, rage and love for those who the event seeks to villify, oppress and injure.

Bring placards, banners, music, people!

We need to drown out the TERFS.
We need to let the local community to know what is going on inside.
We need to PROVE that our communities (LGBTQIA+, queer, anti-racist, antifascist) are vigilant in standing up for and in solidarity with those who experience the most violence and that it will not be tolerated here or anywhere.

We highly encourage self-organising and diversity of tactics.

We need as many allies there as possible – cis, queer, trans people who don’t experience transmisogny need to far outnumber those who do to ensure their safety.

– Anyone have any good anti-TERF chants?-

On the ‘Action For Trans Health London’ post, a man calling himself ‘Tara Flik Wood” posted his intent to attack women who are concerned with the legal status of women:

As you can see, their intent was “loved” by the organizers.

This transgender individual, along with other men, went on to assault a 60 year old grandmother in Hyde Park as seen here:

https://gendertrender.wordpress.com/2017/09/14/this-is-trans-terrorism-this-is-male-violence/

Trans activists also assaulted transsexual Miranda Yardley and grabbed his phone which was later recovered.

On September 14, transgender activists scrambled to defend the attack and prevent LGBT organizations from denouncing the violence:

wow. Stopping trans orgs from condemning violence against women.

 

‘Action For Trans Health” Edinburgh issued a statement supporting the attack:

Unbelievably psychotic violent men who identify as transwomen.

As you can see, ‘Action For Trans Health’ London “loved” their post.

No LGBT organizations have condemned the attack.

No LGBT organizations have issued a comment- including StonewallUK.

No LGBT news outlets have reported on the scheduled event, the no-platforming, the violent attacks, the terroristic suppression of women’s speech on the legal status of women.

The male imperative to insert the bepenised population into women’s restrooms, along with every other women’s space (changing rooms, sports programs, penal institutions, homeless shelters, reproductive health centers, lesbian events) is the “civil rights issue of our time”, apparently, because such carve-outs for women in public life cruelly oppress and dehumanize penis-owners (by excluding them and hurting their feelings) all because of a misunderstood little millennia of institutionalized sexual violence and terrorism against females by males, which has resulted in the offensive and erroneous profiling of males as dangerous, when they simply insist that women have the decency to pretend that such a campaign is not ongoing and that we implement no strategy to defend ourselves.

Declaring female turf: space that women can freely occupy, troubles the tradition that female human beings are themselves ground, the substrate that exists for males to trod upon.

This cruel and baseless female affront to male humanity (and their very existence) played out genocidally (if male egos were the definition of humanity and hurting them were murder) in a comedically humorous fashion when a female human being complained publicly about the impact of a UK theatre’s “Gender Neutral” restroom policy. The horror. Oh, the horror.

The Barbican Centre is a London multiplex of culture: hosting musical, theatrical, art and cinematic product. “The largest of its kind in Europe”.

A few months ago, the Barbican realized that having restrooms for women were offensive to male patrons and imposed on male rights to access all areas. “Civil rights issue of our time” and all. Although the number of female restrooms were already substandard and inadequate, as evidenced by the number of women forced to wait in line, the Centre made a decision to be on the right side of history. They put signs up on the cinema restrooms declaring the male restroom “Gender Neutral. Urinals.” And the female restroom “Gender Neutral. Stalls.” What else could they do? Good progressives must make a stand against the oppression caused by female individuals and their crazy misandrist demands for special accommodations.

Well gosh. Who on earth could have predicted that for some inexplicable reason, women continued not using the male urinals? And that men took over the female restroom? And that men now dominated both the formerly female and male restrooms? Crazy.

This apparently went on for months, with women doing what women are supposed to do: keep their mouths shut and abide. For the Gender Neutral folks (special souls!), For the better good! For the Civil Rights Movement Of Our Time! Hold your piss ladies! Your civic duty!

It finally went sour when a single woman- BBC journalist Samira Ahmed, 2009 Stonewall Broadcast of The Year Award winner for her reports on corrective rape of lesbians in South Africa, announced that the emperor had no clothes, when she posted seven tweets over three hours [https://twitter.com/SamiraAhmedUK/status/849338626202886144] that read as follows:

 

These sensible and moderate complaints resulted in three media reports at the time of publication:

  1. The Times UK reported that Ahmed “launched a tirade” and went on to speculate that her tweets “were likely to refer to the debate over the use of women’s lavatories by transgender people”. Because god. Everyone is starved to hear “bullshit!” called on “trans”. Read their coverage here:

2. Benjamin Butterworth at Pink News titled his piece on Ahmed’s seven tweets:

‘BBC News Host Has Three Hour Rant At Venue’s Gender Neutral Toilets’.

The bolded portions below have since been deleted.

By Benjamin Butterworth A Radio 4 presenter has lashed out at gender neutral toilets introduced at a popular London performance venue.

Samira Ahmed, presenter of BBC shows Front Row and Newswatch, launched into an angry Twitter attack after the Barbican changed its toilet signs.

She wrote: “So dear Barbican Centre bosses, listen to your customers. “Women [have enough] trouble with queues without you imposing your politics.

“Or just turn the gents into gender-neutral loos. There’s never such a queue there and you know it. Thank you.”

The angry rant, which lasted almost three hours, is likely to exasperate the debate over the use of women’s lavatories by transgender people.

She complained that one of the bathrooms was “full of men”, writing: “Women’s loo labelled ‘gender neutral’ so full of men who also have a ‘urinal’ to themselves. Totally ridiculous.”

Ahmed went on: “Give us back women’s loos for all women.

“Why do women lose our space to men!? All women can use ladies loos. This isn’t the USA.”

Donald Trump recently overturned a rule designed to protect transgender young people, allowing them to use the bathroom they identify with.

The Barbican has since responded to her complaints, writing online: “We introduced the gender-neutral toilets in part of the centre as part of our commitment to welcoming all and creating a supportive and tolerant space,” a spokesman for the centre said.

“We welcome all your feedback about the new system as we look to ensure an outstanding audience experience for all.”

Rebecca Stinson, head of trans inclusion at Stonewall, told The Times: “It’s really encouraging that more businesses want to help trans people feel safe and welcome.

“However, before making this move, businesses must research the best way to make a space fully inclusive and communicate the importance of inclusion clearly with staff.

“Other easy steps include . . . ensuring that trans people know they are welcome to use the facilities they find most appropriate.”

PinkNews has contacted the BBC for comment.

The online rants comes [sic] after another Radio 4 presenter, Dame Jenni Murray, was widely condemned by trans activists for writing the trans women are not “real women”.

The Woman’s Hour host and feminist wrote in the Sunday Times Magazine that trans women can never be “real women” because they could experience male privilege before they transition.

The BBC failed to discipline the veteran broadcaster, but issued a statement saying: “Jenni Murray is a freelance journalist and these were her own views, however we have reminded her that presenters should remain impartial on controversial topics covered by their BBC programmes.”

She goes on to criticise comments made by trans broadcaster India Willoughby, who after becoming the first trans woman to co-host Loose Women, appeared on Woman’s Hour in December.”

Benjamin Butterworth’s Pink News Report was edited hours later. He retitled his post. He removed his falsified claim characterizing seven tweets as a “three-hour rant”, and the phrase “lashing out” and added a sentence calling the brutal corrective rape against lesbians in South Africa as “so-called corrective rape”. HOLY SHIT. Changes in Bold:

BBC News host tweets for three hours about venue’s gender neutral toilets

A BBC News presenter has posted a series of tweets about gender neutral toilets introduced at a popular London performance venue.

Samira Ahmed, presenter of BBC shows Front Row and Newswatch, launched into a Twitter tirade after the Barbican changed its toilet signs.

She wrote: “So dear Barbican Centre bosses, listen to your customers.

“Women [have enough] trouble with queues without you imposing your politics.

“Or just turn the gents into gender-neutral loos. There’s never such a queue there and you know it. Thank you.”

The Tweets, which were posted over almost three hours, come as the debate about gendered toilets continues to grow.

She wrote that one of the bathrooms was “full of men”, writing: “Women’s loo labelled ‘gender neutral’ so full of men who also have a ‘urinal’ to themselves. Totally ridiculous.”

Ahmed went on: “Give us back women’s loos for all women.

“Why do women lose our space to men!? All women can use ladies loos. This isn’t the USA.”

Donald Trump recently overturned a rule designed to protect transgender young people, allowing them to use the bathroom they identify with.

The Barbican has since responded to her complaints, writing online: “We introduced the gender-neutral toilets in part of the centre as part of our commitment to welcoming all and creating a supportive and tolerant space,” a spokesman for the centre said.

“We welcome all your feedback about the new system as we look to ensure an outstanding audience experience for all.”

Although the BBC anchor’s nearest bathrooms were gender neutral, the Barbican has many gendered bathrooms should someone wish to use an alternative.[*]

Rebecca Stinson, head of trans inclusion at Stonewall, told The Times: “It’s really encouraging that more businesses want to help trans people feel safe and welcome.

“However, before making this move, businesses must research the best way to make a space fully inclusive and communicate the importance of inclusion clearly with staff.

“Other easy steps include . . . ensuring that trans people know they are welcome to use the facilities they find most appropriate.”

Ms Ahmed previously won an award from Stonewall for her investigation into so-called ‘corrective rape’.

The BBC declined to comment on the presenter’s comments.

The online rants comes after another Radio 4 presenter, Dame Jenni Murray, was widely condemned by trans activists for writing trans women are not “real women”.

The Woman’s Hour host and feminist wrote in the Sunday Times Magazine that trans women can never be “real women” because they could experience male privilege before they transition.

Rebecca Stinson, head of trans inclusion at Stonewall who was quoted in both articles, penned a piece two years ago titled “I’m a TransWoman And I Don’t Want Gender Neutral Toilets”.

In that piece he opined that forcing himself into female restrooms, although it caused women distress, was his way of affirming his identity. He suggested that women who feared him should be “Ejected from the loo” and forced to use a “gender bigot toilet”. “I’m not going anywhere. I’m a trans woman and I am more than happy to piss wherever there’s a girl on the door,” he states. Read his post here:

Noted transgender activist Dana Rivers was arraigned Tuesday on charges of committing a brutal triple homicide in Oakland, California in the early hours of Friday, November 11. The victims have been identified as lesbian couple Patricia Wright and Charlotte Reed and their son Toto “Benny” Diambu-Wright.

Rivers allegedly stabbed and then shot the victims in their home, which he then set ablaze in an attempt to destroy evidence. Rivers was apprehended while attempting to flee the scene of the crime on Reed’s motorcycle. He was covered in their blood.

Police state Rivers made statements confessing to the crime. He was arraigned without bail on charges of triple homicide, arson of an inhabited dwelling, and possession of metal knuckles. He faces life without possibility of parole, and potential death sentence.

Rivers’ motive is unknown. The Mercury News reports: “Authorities have not released a motive but have indicated it might have been a dispute over some property”, while Fox Channel KTVU News reported: “Sources said the case is an isolated incident involving a domestic dispute.”

Dana Rivers (formerly David Warfield) rose to national prominence in 1999 when he was removed from his tenured teaching position as an IT instructor at Center High School in Sacramento following allegations that he inappropriately over-shared personal information with students following his on-the-job gender transition.

Rivers was subsequently featured on the Oprah Winfrey Show, Good Morning America, among other national media. He planned on writing a book and selling a movie version of his life story. With the help of an ACLU attorney Rivers negotiated a $150,000 buy-out of his tenured position and resigned. He discussed his decision in an interview with GenderPAC here: http://www.qrd.org/qrd/trans/1999/interview.with.dana.rivers-12.07.99

Excerpt:

“IYF: What are your chances of getting another

teaching job in the public school?

DR: Excellent. Not only am I an award-winning

teacher with years of experience, but California

is in the midst of a serious teacher shortage. To

be honest, I am not worried about getting another

job in a public high school.

IYF: What happens now? I know that you have some

speaking gigs. Do you see yourself continuing as

a gender activist?

DR: I have been thrust into this role and, to be

honest, I love it. It is part of who I am to be

up front, candid, and in the spotlight. I do not

believe that this means I am particularly vain or

ego-centric. Rather, I know I am capable of

speaking out, and it feels good to move the

mountain. As long as people want to hear me, I

am willing to spread the word.

     My transition thus far has been easy (yes,

even though I lost my job) compared to my sisters

and brothers who have faced ridicule and physical

harm for their gender difference. I am humbled by

the effort and energy of GenderPAC and the other

organizations who are trying to make a difference.

IYF: You just addressed NGLTF’s ‘Creating Change’

in Oakland and traveled to Washington to meet with

Rep. Barney Frank, among others. Tell us about your

new-found high-profile status as an activist.

DR: It’s been fun, a bit overwhelming, and very

rewarding to have so much attention paid to my

situation. I have been interviewed by newspapers

and radio programs and magazines from as far away

as Germany. ABC News has followed my case closely,

and flew my daughter and me out to New York to be

on Good Morning America. I had to secure the help

of an agent to handle the flood of requests for my

time. A book and movie are being considered.

     I actually had Diane Sawyer and a producer

from Oprah Winfrey on the phone at the same time

a few weeks ago. People magazine named me one of

the 25 most intriguing people of 1999, and Jane

magazine named me one of the Gutsiest Women of

the Year. It is amazing! I hope this exposure

gets our message into homes where normal people

can look at me, hear or read about me, and decide

for themselves if I would be a good teacher, or

neighbor, or spouse.”

A vigil was held yesterday for Benny Diambu-Wright at Berkely High, where the nineteen-year-old graduated from high school last year before enrolling in nursing school. Over a hundred people burned candles and shared memories of the young man and his mothers. Patricia Wright, a special-ed teacher, had worked for the same district for a decade until her retirement last year.

Former British Women’s Fell Running Champion Lauren Jeska confessed in court today to committing a vicious premeditated triple stabbing attack on British sports authorities last March at Alexander Stadium.

“Women athlete who tried to murder sports official was transgender and facing review into medals”, reports the UK Mirror Online:

“Sean Kyne, District Crown Prosecutor from West Midlands Crown Prosecution Service, said: “Lauren Jeska had a disagreement with British Athletics officials which escalated and rather than resolve the matter through the appropriate channels, she armed herself with a number of knives, drove from her home in Wales to Birmingham and launched a premeditated and savage attack on the victim which resulted in the victim and his colleagues sustaining a number of life threatening injuries.”

 

“Fell Runner Lauren Jeska tried to kill British athletics official because she feared the body would revoke her titles over transgender status” The Telegraph reports:

“Lauren Jeska, 42, admitted attempting to murder former professional rugby player Ralph Knibbs, 51, during a hearing at Birmingham Crown Court yesterday. 

It is understood a review was being planned into her status as a female athlete because she had been born a man. Her titles could have been in doubt if UK Athletics ruled that she had had an unfair advantage while competing against women, sources suggested.

The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) and West Midlands Police confirmed Jeska was a transgender athlete after the hearing.

She also admitted two counts of having a knife in a public place and two of assault causing actual bodily harm.

On March 22, Jeska, from Machynlleth, Powys, drove from her home in Wales to the British Athletic headquarters in Perry Barr, Birmingham, armed with a number of knives.

A CPS spokesman said: “The defendant entered their offices and asked to speak to the victim.

“She was asked to wait in reception, however, Jeska walked into the open plan office and attacked the victim and stabbed him a number of times.”

 

From the Daily Mail:

“The former British champion fell-runner, from Machynlleth, Powys, Mid Wales, used two 12cm and 13cm kitchen knives in the attack with a third blade – a bread knife – stashed in her bag.  

She viciously stabbed Mr Knibbs in the head and neck, Birmingham Crown Court heard.

Mr Knibbs, now the head of human resources and welfare at British Athletics after a stellar rugby playing career, suffered life-threatening injuries. 

He famously turned down the chance to go on tour with England to South Africa in 1984 because he opposed apartheid.

Jeska, who the court heard is autistic, lashed out at two other top UK Athletics officials, accountant Tim Begley and Kevan Taylor, when they tried to stop her.

The Daily Mail goes on to report that:

“Jeska is listed as being a member of the Yorkshire-based Todmorden Harriers Running Club on the group’s website.  She was also a second-claim member for Aberystwyth AC.

According to the site, she was the women’s English Fell Running Champion for three consecutive years between 2010-2012 and won the British Championship in 2012.”

 

Both the BBC and The Guardian refused to report on Jeska’s transgender status and his motive for the attack, and misreported him as being a female defendant whose motive was unknown. 

Jeska will be sentenced on November 15.

tangerine premier london

Filmgoers attending this weekend’s London premiere of ‘Tangerine’, Sean S. Baker‘s independent film shot on modified iPhone, were greeted by stickers and flyers distributed by a group of women calling themselves “Lesbian Nation”. The group protested the film’s depiction of extreme misogyny and the normalization of male violence and brutality against women. ‘Tangerine’ features an extended sequence of a man repeatedly slapping, battering, dragging and lifting a kidnapped woman, violence which goes on for several scenes and is played for laughs: because the male perpetrator is a “transwoman”.

Women are referred to as “fish” by the male protagonists throughout the film, also played for laughs in what the filmmakers describe as a “transgender revenge comedy”.

An excerpt from the (not terribly feminist) RogerEbert.com review: “[C]ertain aspects of the story are—as Internet thinkpieces are found of saying—problematic, particularly the violence that [male actor] Sin-Dee inflicts on Dinah, grabbing and dragging and lifting and even slapping her repeatedly, over the course of several scenes. “Tangerine” treats this action as outrageously funny; it seems to expect us to write it off as, “Well, this is just what would happen in that world,” a valid enough observation, but one that only takes us so far. True, the violence is balanced by subsequent scenes of Sin-Dee and Dinah and eventually Alexandra reaching a kind of understanding, and even displaying tenderness toward each other. But the later scenes don’t cancel out the sour taste left by the earlier ones. This is a case where the problem isn’t what’s being shown, but the film’s evident attitude toward what it’s showing us, at the moment that it’s showing it.”

The ‘Tangerine’ film is the latest example of a growing popular trend wherein liberal males get a pass on overtly expressing their violent hatred of women under cover of supporting the transgender movement, which is itself based entirely on sexism and misogyny and the celebration of female subjugation.

“You didn’t have to Chris Brown the bitch!” –Male violence against women presented as comedy entertainment.

“You didn’t have to Chris Brown the bitch!” –Male violence against women presented as comedy entertainment.

“The Misogynist Comedy of the Year!” “A Treat Not to Be Missed if You Like Violence Against Women!” mocks the Lesbian Nation protest flyers and posters, which were designed to mimic the film’s promotional materials. You can view their message in its entirety below (click to enlarge):
