Balance of exposing male violence vs. transgender agenda

19 Mar

TRIGGER WARNING for violence and transphobia!

The TERFS have a fairly full agenda when it comes to their feminism. It does deal with violence (male violence while ignoring female violence) but when it comes to naming the problem (nametheproblem.com) there is a HUGE difference in how at least one TERF approaches activism when it comes to male violence and transgender women.

nametheproblem.com is nothing more than a repost of news stories about men who commit violence against women. Just copy and paste stuff. However, when this TERF focuses on her transgender-based activism she goes above and beyond to find every single thing about this person including, but not limited to, previous names, court records, any picture that they posted which can be used to ridicule a trans* woman, contacting employers of them and seeks them out to confront them about every single thing she thinks she can use against them. An enormous amount of time and focus is spent. See pretendbians.com for such an example.

Why is this terf more worried about trans* women than an actual real and proven threat? The threats that TERFs see from trans* women are mostly theoretical with almost no evidence to support it. Yet they drag these women through the mud in an incredibly abusive way. We don’t see this same tactic used against the men of nametheproblem.com, however.

They say they don’t hate us but I am sorry, evidence would show otherwise. They think that we are invading their healthcare and mention reproduction but they fail to acknowledge that trans women need access to women’s healthcare as well. Breast exams, for one.  Post op women also need access to OB/GYN care.

In my opinion, their trans-agenda is truly hate-based. It seems we are hated worse than the men who commit violence against women. It truly boggles the mind.

#RadFem2013 Hatefest At London Irish Center

7 Mar

Trans Exclusionary Radical Feminists (TERF) are planning a conference for June 8th and June 9th at the London Irish Center in London. Last year they planned on having this at Conway Hall but since they specifically excluded transgender women the venue cancelled. They ended up getting another venue at Birkbeck, University of London at the last moment.

Statement Regarding RadFem 2012 via Democratic Underground

In consultation with the organisers of RadFem 2012 and our legal advisors, Conway Hall has decided not to allow the booking in July 2012 to proceed. This is because it does not conform to our Terms and Conditions for hiring rooms at Conway Hall. In addition, we are not satisfied it conforms with the Equality Act (2010), or reflects our ethos regarding issues of discrimination.

We had sought assurances that the organisers would allow access to all, in order to enable the event to proceed at the venue. We also expressed concern that particular speakers would need to be made aware that whilst welcoming progressive thinking and debate, Conway Hall seeks to uphold inclusivity in respect of both legal obligations and as a principle.

In the absence of the assurances we sought, the event in its proposed form could not proceed at Conway Hall.

That said, we recognise the breadth of debate to be had amongst the feminist and transgender communities and it is our sincere hope that there will be constructive and positive dialogue on these matters going forward.

In response to Sheila Jeffreys’ online Guardian article in their ‘Comment is free’ section, dated 29th May 2012, we would like it to be known that Conway Hall has in the past made clear that speakers / attendees at events for other hirers will not be permitted where we have felt that these individuals have expressed and may express (on our premises) views which conflict with our ethos, principles, and culture; the reference to David Irving was simply one of the examples given.

This year they aren’t publicizing a ban on transgender women but by watching the #radfem2013 hashtag on twitter, it is obvious trans women are not welcome. In fact, they have been using this hashtag to abuse trans women and their allies. I would urge the London Irish Center to contact the organizers to determine if hate speech will be part of the agenda and if they plan on preventing transgender women from participating.

One attendee has stated she will be asking trans women to leave if they show up. Perhaps this is their unwritten policy.

TERF Quotes

The first post in this blog is simply going to hi-light some actual quotes from the TERF community. If you would like to have quotes added to this list please sign up for an account on twitlonger.com, post as much information in the twitlonger as you can and then tweet it to #terfquotes.

UPDATE: Aftermath of supposed cancellation of radfem2013

Bev Jo: They expect we’ll be shocked to see statistics about them being killed, and don’t realize, some of us wish they would ALL be dead.

Luckynkl: SCAMs (Surgically and Chemically Altered Males) are nothing more than MRAs (Men’s Rights Activists) in dresses.

Bev Jo: [Transgender Women Are] Male supremacists who want to skin real women to wear as their “womanly” guise. They WOULD be a boring joke, except for the many women who support them. It’s all about saying no to men who won’t take no for an answer, except this group of female-haters have female guardians.

MaggieH: The libfems who are being so indoctrinated by patriarchal trans ideologies need to wake up and stop believing the lies. Libfems, especially, please stop internalizing the big patriarchal lie that says that men can somehow “become” women, a lie that was created by the male-supremacist medical establishment to begin with. Libfems, please stop supporting trans attacks against us. Stop believing they are “women;” they’re MEN. Show us that you don’t want to be handmaidens of patriarchy, coz that’s sad…

llaff: I feel like all one would need to do to counteract the funfem support of transwomen is ask them if they’d like to fuck a transwomen. Hypocritical eye-darting may just ensue.

WrathOfTiamat: The fun-fem/MRA/trans backlash is designed in order to make us lose our time, it’s the same old male vampirism now disguised in effeminate, ugly, weirdoes saying they’re women.

MaggieH: [Males are] Fucking mutants. When will there ever be a male-only deadly disease taking over the earth to put them out of their misery, huh?

Luckynkl: The male-born are biologically incomplete mutants, useless and obsolete; walking viruses on two legs and a cancer, spreading disease, death and destruction wherever they go. They are the walking-dead and the antithesis to life. Gyn-energy sucking vampires who have to plug into women and feed on them in order to survive. No different than a parasite who sucks the life and energy out of its host.

Mantis: Oh, dontcha know? Anybody can be a woman if they feel like one…even if they have a big, hairy cock hangin’ between their legs.

Bonobabe: Personally, I think we should do away with circumcision and replace it with castration.

WhiteTiger: If we’re going that road, why not just cull boy babies for awhile? Re-establish a sane balance. Then we can start selective breeding programs for donor males… [To cull means to reduce the population of by selective slaughter.]

Bonobobabe: Most women don’t like penetration all that much (if they are brutally honest with themselves and not a fun fem). I can’t imagine having a dick shoved into a surgical wound would feel so much more wonderful than what real women feel when a dick is put inside their real vaginas.

ybawife: I get really angry at these men who assert they are womon…I just wanna tell them to fuck off and find a gender of their own and leave OURs alone- bastards all of them…

Moonrider: If you’re so intent on saying you’re a woman, why do you NEVER say you are? Why are you NEVER interested in something other than what the status quo says is how a woman is? Why do you never give a shit about the lives of other women? Why the fuck, if you’re so against stereotypes, do you go to all attempts to be “feminine”? Stupid men.

MaggieH: Jeez! Fucking SCAMs make me puke, just like all other men…

Helzeph: [Trans women] all through history they have been used by patriarchy to infiltrate women’s spaces. It began in the temples, and slowly priestesses turned to priests and they invade feminist spaces today and hijack our agendas. Their reaction to [the death of Mary] Daly proves for all to see that they don’t care about actual women and our welfare at all.

JourneyMistress: It might be well and good to “educate” them [males] but that seems to take decades. Only if you are dedicated to educating the Terminally Stupid should you embark on this…Detachment is the key to emotional survival in a world plagued by males. Otherwise you really do just want to shoot them on sight.

MaggieH: There are times when I just want all men dead right now. Sometimes I really, really daydream about a virus that would suddenly take over the earth and that would kill all males (also that would make them well suffer before they die), as well as give us the possibility to reproduce through parthenogenesis… Oh, my Goddess, I want men to be So. Fucking. Dead. Right now!!!

Luckynkl: So at this point in time, men are a complete waste of our time and energy. They are a hopeless cause. And if we don’t take them out soon, they will destroy this planet and all life on it. So they’ve got to go.

Bev Jo: There are no words to describe them. There are tiny parasitic wasps who paralyze small animals (spiders, caterpillars, etc.) and lay their eggs on them, so the animal is alive while being slowing eaten by the growing baby. But the wasps aren’t deliberately cruel. These men remind me of a deliberately female-hating version of that. They’ve prove what I’ve been saying for decades — they are more female-hating than even many het men. The character in Silence of the Lambs who skinned women to wear really seems more accurate all the time.

WrathOfTiamat: Just imagine that this idea of making gender-neutral toilets is brought to terms and we end up having to go pee with the males…we’d be in constant panic to get raped and we would sure as hell get bullied all the time—well AND raped.

Luckynkl: So if we can come up with a biological weapon that can be ingested and kill off the Y Chromosome in a man’s sperm count, we’re almost home. We can all get hired as waitresses or chefs or work at McDonald’s and sprinkle it into the food or something… It’s not a quick solution. It will take about 2 generations to cull males. But it will work.

RoseVerbena: I do not agree that you are a woman. I will never agree that you are a woman. Having GID does not make you a woman. I will go to my grave disagreeing that you are a woman. That’s final.

Delphyne: This is what trans has always been about. All their politics, all their organizing, centers around preventing women from experiencing real women-only spaces, and women-only politics. Ten years ago trans politics barely existed, but since then they have managed to create for themselves a whole new brand of oppression, found themselves armies of supporters, who think they are being cool and tolerant by supporting men in dresses…

Bug Brennan: When cross-dressing males, who have not sought medical treatment and/or who do not intend to transition, demand access to sex-segregated spaces on the vague basis of a feminine ‘gender identity,’ that is an infringement on our rights.

jen: Only the transgender cult demands that the rest of the world constantly validate their shaky identities. Your gender obsessions are a bore and a waste of valuable time.

BevJo: It’s way more than just pretend bodies for SCAMs—these men’s minds, hearts and spirits are nowhere near to what women’s are. They can’t be, they never will be, and the more they threaten and insult us, the clearer it is to all women. It’s like they are way beyond even most rapists, who want to maim and torture and possess girls and women… They want to completely eliminate us, and particularly Lesbians, as a culture, a people, as living beings. Like how the women were replaced in the original Stepford Wives and Invasion of the Body Snatchers. Kill us and replace us with pretenders.

RoseVerbena: Just say NO to pretendbian lady-sticks, “new and improved” f-holes made of colon and all the other insults and appropriations. Just say no to culturally-enforced, sexist “jendah” stereotypes, coercing baby dykes and “effeminate” boys into transitioning, media hyping of so-called “pregnant men.” sexually-obsessed adult males being legally enabled to invade women’s safe and private spaces and the ongoing, accelerating pornification of woman-kind.

Gallus Mag: We didn’t exclude you from being female, God did. Blame her.

FeistyAmazon: Just one man, or one male born can ruin a woman only space, cuz they don’t just sit down, shut up and ACTIVELY LISTEN to us and what we are saying amongst ourselves…they ALWAYS have to take over and draw attention to themselves and TELL US WHAT TO DO! Damn, that fucking workshop drained me, and pissed me off so fucking bad!

Allecto Tauni: Women beware Dionysus. He is far more dangerous than Zeus.

Amazon ManCrusher: I don’t believe in the tooth fairy or all seeing invisible sky dude or males being born into wrong sexed bodies.

MaggieH: Fed up with those fucking trannies saying they are womyn. They need to get blasted too. They’re men.

FCM: Neo-Vagina? Or Second Asshole? There is absolutely NO non-patriarchal, non-misogynist reason to regard this structure as a neo-vagina rather than a second asshole… If you must, call it a second asshole, because at least that’s not misogynist.

Bev Jo: They expect we’ll be shocked to see statistics about them [transgender women] being killed, and don’t realize, some of us wish they would ALL be dead.

Noanodyne: 1) Lesbians have one single solitary gender in the minds of the vast majority of human beings: Woman. And a woman is an adult female in all but the tiny little minds of a handful of mentally ill people.

Rose Verbena: Gender Identity Disorder is very much a mental illness. It causes people to:

— hate their own bodies up to and including a strong urge to cut off perfectly normal, perfectly healthy body parts, take dangerous hormones, etc.;

In summary: the entire (fad, cult) “trans” lie is a threat to my spiritual and mental health and my physical safety.

Davina Squirrel: Well transwhacktivists are indeedy stuck between a rock and a hard place. In order to popularise it (primarily cross-dressing and other male fetishes like autogynephilia) they had to get the medical profession onside and declare it to be a legitimate (mental) illness, which it is. Now trans want us to treat them as rational (non mentally ill) humans, even though they exhibit all the signs of multiple other mental illnesses in addition to the GID.

We respect trans’ human rights like we do with a person who has schizophrenia, but we also recognise it is dangerous to indulge a schizophrenic’s delusions and try to stop them causing themselves harm.

Cathy Brennan: The goal of “trans” whacktivists is to ERASE “woman” from reality

These insane MALES are trying to erase us, women. They are actively working night and day to ERASE us from our shared language, from our laws, from the face of the earth.

Rose Verbena: All the little snowflake people think, “I can be whatever I want…because I’m special, special, special…”

Is their a mirror in this dude’s house? I don’t know a SINGLE person in my day-to-day life who actually believes that “trans women” are real women. Not one. They might not openly laugh and point, but the eye roll is always there, letting me know that they know that THAT (insert chin point and eye roll here) is not a woman.

We all know they’re men in drag. All of us. Some of us just pretend to go along with it out of a mis-placed sense of “being nice to the crazy person”

I will always stand up against violence and against discrimination in housing, medical care, etc. for people who are mentally ill. But I will NEVER pander to or enable their delusional behavior and I will NEVER approve of these dudes invading women’s safe and private spaces. NEVER.

I can’t think of anyone on the planet less “fuckable” as a group than “trans women”. *** shiver *** It’s like they have a force-field around them that repels people. Straight men don’t want them. Lesbians don’t want them. I’m bisexual and I’ve never been attracted to one, not once in 38 years of adult life — they’re no more attractive to me than a lump of coal.

m Andrea:
If they were to assist in dismantling a system of gender oppression, then there would be no plausible explanation for their need to transform their bodies. I suspect that whatever twisted neurons are responsible for transgenderism, would just focus on a different fetish.

doublevez:
They are dangerously, seriously mentally ill. The fact that they are not being treated for THAT is a human rights infraction.

tiamathydra:
And in case castrated men with dresses and lipstick insist in infiltrating female-only spaces, you know what? We should create female-only secret societies and spread our tentacles from there.

easilyriled:
I’m transpecied. Inside, I am a porpoise. i have tried to get surgeons to remove my thumbs so that my hands can become the flippers they really are. but they won’t. “unethical” they say. oh well. I use duct tape to good effect. it’s not fair, it’s transphobic that i have to pay to go to the aquarium to even see my people. and then i am still not allowed to swim with them. i am a porpoise. do not call me “Flipper”. that’s demeaning.

Mary Sunshine:
Any reference to trannies as “women” is a betrayal of women who are, by definition, adult human females.

Mary Sunshine:
Females don’t have to kill baby boys. Just not nurture them. Females are forced to *birth* baby boys, but beyond that a female’s physical actions are her own.

Males will die without the constant infusion of female energy that they get from our wombs and from our lives. They are perfectly welcome to take the male infants from the hands of the midwife, and what they do with it from that point is *their* decision.

Dawnsister:
Not at all, Maggie. In fact, I’m one of those bad, shameful feminists who wish we could all just kill the fuckers(men).

ybawife:
I[sic] needs to be so unfashionable to have boys and they would be aborted before seeing the light of day.

Journeywoman:
I like it a lot, Luckynki, I agree basically with your analysis, though, I have a different emphasis so far in the evolutinary biology stuff I’m looking at. You’re more radical than I ATM, thouh, who knows where I will be in a year – but your proposal to exterminate the male entirely a la Solanas is to me more of a last resort.

Ann Tagonist:
Who the fuck wants to be ‘intimate’ with a surgical wound anyway? Trans women, if you cut off your penis, lesbians still don’t want to have sex with you. This is because we know that females are not merely neutered males.

Vliet Tiptree:
My own personal vision is that women will cure the sickness that ails men and that men will stay around, hunkered in their man-caves playing the ukelele, leaving us in peace at last. As to what that cure may be, my best bet is that what’s wrong with men is that their androgens need genetic modification.

I’m serious about this. If we can do it with corn, men ought to be easy.

witchwind: Editor’s note: This is a true LOL
Anyway, these are many reasons that make me say PIV is in no way a natural human practice, and that women’s vagina isn’t meant to be penetrated at all, but only meant to expel a baby.

Mary Sunshine:
Women need to stop raising male children. Women who raise male children are digging the graves of other females. Nobody wants to bite that bullet (except lesbian separatists) but it must be done.

Femitheist Divine:

All Men Should Be Castrated? – International “Castration Day”

Some Feminists have considered this as an option. It is highly controversial.

Allow me to introduce myself…

My name is Krista, otherwise known as “The Femitheist”. I am a female, a feminist, and someone who believes strongly in True Equality.

Now, I will begin explaining this entry before I post the actual article… for your discussion, of course.

Women MUST and WILL have equality, and this is the ONLY way to achieve TRUE equality. The testicles of all males, which produce the majority of their testosterone, are the primary cause of their violent behavior. The testicles also attribute greatly to many of the health problems men experience later in life (such as prostate cancer and, of course, testicular cancer).

~:The Solution… International Castration Day.:~

It is my belief (which I consider factual based on my research) that all men SHOULD be castrated. Not only for their own safety, but for the safety of all innocent women and children.

And, to achieve this…

The entire world should have an international holiday known as: “Castration Day”

Males of all ages will be brought to the public squares of their cities nude, to stand together in a circle, as they await castration by a woman known as “The Castrator”, who will be a woman chosen from the public much like a juror.

Girls of all ages will attend, lining the streets to cheer and applaud the males as they join the rest of civilized society.

It will be a free vacation for any working woman. And, young girls will be able to leave school to attend this glorious ceremony.

The males will then have one hour to get to know their Castrator. Their female “spouse” will also be able to choose whether or not they would like to milk the male in order to retain a sperm sample.

If the male is too young for a “spouse”, their mother or closest female relative will decide.

After this, the men will be given anesthetics. They will be placed on a table, where their Castrator will then slice open their ball-sack, remove their testicles, and the excess skin, stitch them up and clean them up.

They will be given thirty minutes to rest after the procedure.

Once the males have all been castrated, they will be grouped together again for one last look before walking nude back to their homes.

The women will then return to their jobs, schools, et cetera, and rejoice in the completion of yet another successful ceremony.

Any man who tries to evade this holiday, “Castration Day”, should be murdered wherever they
are found (treated as a criminal, as it will be a crime not to attend). Or, forced to attend.
Regardless of age.

Any woman who disagrees should be provided therapy in order to free her from misogynistic indoctrination.

This holiday should replace the day known currently as “Father’s Day”.

If this practice were adopted officially all across the world, all war, crime, and violence would end.

We would have a true Eutopia, where peace reigns, and men do only what they exist for…

Maggieh:
Fed up with those fucking trannies saying they are womyn. They need to get blasted too. They’re men.

How about a pro-TW movement, where we de-penisize every male child born, just in case he is a “woman born in a manz body”? This actually works for me.

Bev suggested I share this amusing anecdote here so here goes :)
I was watching the video of these tranny creep the other day and my parents walked in and both said in more or less perfect synchronisation:
“”What the hell is wrong with that man? Who does he think he’s fooling?!””

Haha, got it in one mum and dad, got it in one.

Cathy Brennan “remember the girls lied about their ages also, and he broke it off when he found out they were underage.” Trans is rape culture.

Cathy Brennan “redacted lesbian” on Huffington Post about an article about shelters turning trans women away to the streets.

Commented Apr 11, 2013 at 20:01:28 in DC

“It is appalling that transgender activists are willing to jeopardize safe space for homeless women, who are more likely to be abused and traumatized by violence, instead of creating safe space for transwomen. Shame on them.”

#radfem2013 bc trans is the shit stain on the underpants of MRAs. You are the same ppl, bros.

#radfem2013 you are an 18 year old rapist @rhysmorgan

So, if Cathy Brennan considers us mentally ill how does she justify the constant attacks on trans women? She abuses the mentally ill on purpose? BTW, we aren’t mentally ill.

Someone’s mental illness does not mean another group should coddle them or suck their dicks. Cheers, Mr. Heterosexual.

@joalabaster I was picking up the lesbian issue, I don’t believe someone with a penis wanting to have sex with a lesbian is a lesbian.

#radfem2013’s new venue – Camden Centre

Camden Centre http://www.camden.gov.uk/twitter agrees to host radfem2013 which features a list of transphobic speakers. @camdentalking @camdenmayor

  1. Cathy Brennan
    This workshop will discuss the manner in which Queer Theory has appropriated Women and Lesbian narratives of oppression as a means to advance the rights of Men. We will identify tactics used by Queer advocates, discuss ways in which Feminists can support each other in identifying these tactics, and strategies for [combating] them.
  2. Dear Trans PPL – Your politics are based on a fraud and a lie. Live with that.
    For some reason she feels the need to drop into the hashtag #girlslikeus (which is a tag created to give support to trans women) to leave intentionally abusive tweets to innocent trans women who are minding their own business.
  3. Oh and btw, #girlslikeus are still men.
  4. So you agree that it is transphobic to know penis is male, yes?#genius @tracey_hickey
  5. ZOMG I AM SO CALLED OUT. WTF ever. I am “transphobic” for knowing transwomen are men. So is 99% of the world.#transphobeworld
  6. #girlslikeus are male. Call the Southern Poverty Law Center and report me for hate speech.
  7. Dear Internet Transactivists – Most of you are giant losers who can barely function in reality. BEST OF LUCK!
  8. Why won’t my bone marrow understand I identify as healthy, tho? Damn, Biology, stop oppressing me!

Here is Brennan just casually dropping in to abuse trans women for the fun of it.
