Feminism has been co-opted but it won’t last

The backlash against feminism has been going on for decades, and has reared its beastly head every time women have inched themselves forward in any way at all.

However, in recent years, the backlash, in quite possibly the sneakiest attempt yet to subvert the gains Second Wave feminists have fought for, has made the most devious bid yet to derail the feminist movement – trans activism and the co-option of feminism itself.

Now, its extremely common to hear calls within the mainstream feminist movement, to centre “trans women” aka biological males.

Feminism is currently in reverse

Not only that but trans activism itself, with its regressive embrace of gender stereotypes aka the old sex role stereotypes, has preposterously forced feminism to accept idiotic notions, such as the idea that girls wear pink and boys wear blue.

This is quite clearly a ridiculous position for the feminist movement to find itself in.

It is an obvious triumph for adversaries of the feminist movement left and right, as the repressive sex roles, rebranded now as gender roles, are the main reason for women’s subordination.

In fact, though the backlash against feminism presents itself as progressive, it’s becoming crystal clear that the ideology that underpins trans activism is regressive to the core.

A dangerously devious idea

The type of sexism that used to spew from the mouth of outraged right wing types is now common parlance among enthusiastic trans activists, who quickly rush to trans any person who dares to step out of their sex role.

It’s not uncommon to see statements such as “Tomboy is the grossest aesthetic. Tomboys should transition or step the fuck out”, on social media, or to hear a similar sentiment repeated within trans circles offline.

Because of regressive gender ideology, more and more gender nonconforming girls are bombarded with the message that if they are not feminine enough, they are not a woman.

It may seem like a lunatic idea to hypothesise that transgender ideology is actually feminist backlash coming from the right wing, but the evidence is too blatant to ignore.

From Pink New’s latest nifty little animated videos, pushing the idea that girls who prefer to wear “male” clothing and play rough and tumble are really boys, to Men’s Rights Activists who loudly proclaim that trans women like the fragrant Blair White are better than real women because they are more feminine, it’s glaringly obvious what the desire that drives trans activism is really all about.

Mainstream feminism now regularly compels biological women to admire how “feminine” trans women are, once again enforcing the idea that woman = feminine.

Once upon a time feminists were attempting to chip away at the sex roles that constrained us all in boxes, now mainstream feminists are running to demand the chains to their own enslavement.

As trans activism gathers pace, misogyny within the feminist movement rises, and biological women are prevented from naming, and therefore addressing the root cause of their oppression, their biology.

This of course is one of the core aims of the trans activist movement

It is the feminine ideal pushed on women because of their sex that holds born females back, not their gender identity.

Trans activism disagrees, even going so far as to postulate the ludicrous claim that trans women experience more misogyny than those born female.

Even when so-called trans women appear to all and sundry to be very obviously biologically male, it still pushes this utterly nonsensical hypothesis.

Women need a solution, they don’t have one – yet

Women, frustrated, angry, and lost for an answer, turn to the only solution currently presented to them, the mainstream, male co-opted feminist movement.

Confused yet desperately hoping to find an escape from their all-too-real pain, they eagerly imbibe the present so-called feminist ideology.

This involves of course embracing almost everything that has been proscribed for them by male wants, male needs, and male desires, its “liberation” through pornochic, stripper culture, and anything goes kink.

The zenith of achievement that males who have infiltrated the feminist movement have aimed for all along is finally upon us.

Behold the emperor in his brand new clothes

Now women are mandated to bow to male bodied people, males who have not even had transsexual surgery or even cross sex hormones.

Women are compelled to declare that these kinds of trans women are women, the exact same kind of women as they are themselves, in fact.

The demands don’t stop there, the trans activist’s quest to conquer is ceaseless.

Now women must state trans women are not only women but better women than they are, and also more oppressed.

This is not just regressive, its positively sadistic.

Society sees male biology and privileges it

Women are no longer able to talk about their own bodies without censorship, for fear of “triggering” biological males who claim womanhood, yet have never been anything but privileged in the eyes of the patriarchal status quo.

Cultural malcontent among women simmers, as our misogynistic culture heightens and continues enacting its sadism upon its longtime target – women.

Women are aware of this, painfully so, whether they are forced to see sexual predators continue to escape justice, or compelled to be ritually humiliated by the proliferation of “hate porn” that is men’s revenge against the gains women have made, off the back of the Second Wave movement.

In an attempt to redeem their dented egos, the sex role system now compels men to degrade women further, harder, more in order to actualise the male sense of self patriarchy tells men they should possess.

Man equals sadist under patriarchy

Our society whispers in men’s ears from the cradle, teaching them they need to dominate women in order to be men.

It conditions boys and men to destroy their humanity and become sadists through a daily diet of porn, misogynistic messaging, and social privilege, thereby ensuring empathy for women is deadened and the patriarchal system can thrust its way onward.

After all, in a hierachiearchal patriarchy, no-one likes to give up power, least of all men.

In our culture power is everything to men

This is why men have reacted with such vitriol to the feminist movement historically.

This has not mattered up until now, as the feminist movement has generally been quite determined to press on advocate for its members – women – regardless.

See the present problem?

The truth of the matter is, it is irrelevant to any actual feminist movement how angry men are.

Women are the largest body politic, they don’t require men to free themselves, they only require a way forward.

Men never have been, and never will be relevant to any real feminist movement, which is why the presence of them in this latest incarnation of “feminism” has rendered the movement so thoroughly ineffective.

Meanwhile, the old guard, on the right wing, who’d love to see women back in their proper place as wives and mothers, rub their hands in glee as actual feminists, of the radical kind, find themselves between a rock and a hard place.

In standing up to the trans activist movement feminists are forced to assert that biological difference is an actuality, but this is then warped and weaponized by the right, and held up as “evidence” of the anything but natural patriarchal order.

Biology is real but it doesn’t come with a dress code

Biology makes men have penises, and women vaginas. It allows women to gestate and men to impregnate. It is why women lactate and menstruate and it’s also what makes most men physically stronger than most women in terms of body structure, and muscle mass.

However, this is where it stops and ends.

Biology does not confer personality traits, particular kind of intelligence or abilities, careers, dress, or style preferences onto people.

Biology does not make people of either sex have a predisposition to math, or to doing the washing up.

Biology does not dictate ambition, competence, or ability.

This must be clearly asserted.

Radical feminists must stand firm and united in our quest to burn the gender caste system to the ground. The key to the ruination of the entire thing, is of course the destruction of the stifling, suffocating sex roles.

The answer won’t come from the left or the right

The right pretend to offer shelter from the trans activists, yet they would have us run to them conditionally, on the grounds we accept that men and women are born innately with fixed roles proscribed upon us.

This is precisely the same thing the trans activists are saying, albeit dressed up in the jazzy clothes.of Queer Politics.

As Andrea Dworkin put it in her aptly titled book, there is woman hatred on the left and on the right.

The answer lies not in the left nor the right, but in radical feminist theory itself, the challenge now being how to bring radical awareness to the larger body politic of women, in order to reclaim the feminist movement.

There is both good news and bad on the horizon.

Promised that the lie of equality had been achieved during the decades that followed the Second Wave, then offered feminism lite, women are beginning to get angry again, as they see the world is still orientated firmly around the default human – man.

The tentacles of the beast that is patriarchy spew out issue after issue for women to wade through, from sexual assault, to unequal pay. Yet women, presently are still attempting to cut off the beast’s writhing tentacles rather than driving a stake right through its heart.

Women of this decade are beginning to see through the illusion of equality they were told they had gained.

From porn culture and #metoo, to the glass ceiling, body shaming, trolling, and harassment, anger runs rife throughout the female populace.

It’s a tragedy the very movement they turn to for a solution offers them no real answer.

However there is hope.

Women’s anger is not about to disappear, but will only worsen, as our culture ramps up its woman hatred and the trans activist and men’s rights movement together finally steer mainstream feminism off a cliff.

At some point, women will have to wake up.

And they will be full of rage.

When they do, radical feminism will be right here to offer them a place for their anger, and a real, workable solution that delivers them liberation from patriarchy.

Then, and only then, the feminist movement can rebuild itself again, finally wrested from the hands of the oppressor.

The tragedy is, along the way, much female energy will be wasted on centering and pandering to male needs. Many women might even find themselves swallowed up in the horror that is gender ideology themselves, as girls and women flock to transition into men, so unbearable it is presently to be female.

Radical feminists must try to limit the damage, while at the same time bringing the true intent of the trans activist movement to the surface, where women can see it.

Trans activism is a men’s rights movement

As legendary feminist scholar Sheila Jeffreys so wisely said, transgender activism is a men’s rights movement.

Trans activism and men’s rights are both rooted in the same fetid, patriarchal soil, and as such, can never offer women anything but subservience to male desire.

The greatest triumph of patriarchy has been to subvert feminism itself, yet in doing this the patriarchy has forgotten one crucial thing.

Though it struggles to see women as human beings, the inescapable fact of women’s humanity is the very reason why patriarchy will find itself ultimately unsustainable.

A system which mandates enforced femininity and supplication of a human being is doomed to fail – eventually.

If patriarchy served women, it might well last forever, but quite quite patently, it does not.

And women are angry, angry at so many things, though they do not have an answer to their anger presently. Yet they will, as all oppressed people do, eventually seek one, a real one.

And as anger boils over into rage, at the realisation they have been duped into embracing enslavement all over again, the spark needed to break the bonds of patriarchy once and for all will unite the feminist movement.

When women rise, when their anger meets with the clear, resonating message of radical feminist wisdom, women as a class will make the final, crucial push forward.

Not this time merely into the workplace, or the halls of academia, but onto the final frontier itself, liberation and woman’s right to set her own standards, to be measured not by what men can do but by what women can achieve, in a world set up to sustain and nurture women’s bodies, minds, and souls.

UK politics fiddles while festering misogyny burns


Misogyny is as old as the hills but as many women in the UK are beginning to realise, in 2018, it’s taken a brand new form – trans activism.

The bullying, harassing, and attempted censorship of women who dare to criticise the oppressive system of gender, has been going on for well over a decade, with prominent feminist activists and scholars like Sheila Jeffries and Julie Bindel being no-platformed and publicly condemned.

Knowledge of the misogynistic activities of militant trans activists has been, for a good part of the past decade or so. largely confined to within radical feminist circles, however recently, the debate has started to hit the mainstream.

A number of events have propelled the mainstream media to finally sit up and start taking notice of feminist’s long held concerns about trans activism and the negative impact it will have on women’s rights and social standing.

Posie Parker, aka Mrs Kellie-Jay-Keen-Minshull, a married mother who has spoken out forcefully against the misogyny of trans activism, has been subjected to a sustained campaign of harassment, culminating in her home address and videos of her children being leaked on social media this week.

Keen-Minshull has been consistently, and falsely accused of transphobia, with the most recent accusation levelled against her coming because she erected a billboard outside the Labour Conference in Liverpool displaying the Oxford English Dictionary’s definition of the word woman, adult human female.

After trans activists spearheaded by a Dr. Adrian Harrop (who is not himself trans) pressured the company who displayed the billboard, Primesight, to withdraw the advert, they complied, caving in to the trans activists as so many other companies have already done.

The furore surrounding this incident made such a hullabaloo that Keen-Minshull was asked to appear on Sky News, and This Morning, discussing the matter.

Ocado, who waded in to the argument after subsequent pressure from trans activists, had to withdraw the foolhardy statement they had rushed out in support of Primesight’s action, after the story went viral on Mumsnet, and hundreds of women threatened a boycott of the shopping service, berating them for betraying women.

The blatant attempts to silence, no-platform, and harras anyone who does not totally comply with the trans activists ever-increasing list of demands has been steadily ramping up in pace, as has the level of bullying directed towards anyone who dares oppose them.

Last week also saw Angelos Sofocleous, a Philosophy student at the University of Durham sacked from his position as Editor of the Student Philosophy Journal, for daring to tweet the scientifically accurate statement “Women don’t have penises.”

Whatever your views on this, this view has been accepted as universal truth for centuries. Perhaps the biggest irony in this particular case is that one of the essential components of Philosophic practice is freedom to debate ideas.

The very same week, Father Ted creator Graham Linehan came.under fire from the trans activist crew, for daring to stand in solidarity with gender critical women who demand the right to single sex spaces.

Linehan’s wife was targeted and doxed by trans activists, with her business details shared via social media, while Linehan himself was labelled “transphobia”. Lineham is currently pursuing the matter with the police.

To add to all this, last Wednesday brought the spectacle of the show trial of long time activist Linda Bellos and former Labour Party member Venice Allan, accused of “threatening violence” by “trans woman” Giuliana Kendal, who brought a civil prosecution against the pair.

Both Bellos and Allan had to appear in the dock, at Westminster Crown Court, accused of ““threatening or abusive words or behaviour that is likely to cause “harassment, alarm or distress.”

Bellos’s crime was merely promising to defend herself by stating she would “take off her glasses and thump” violent trans activists who were threatening her. Allan meanwhile, live streamed the event where Bellos made the statement, and subsequently the pair ended up having to fight a civil prosecution after the Crown Prosecution Service laughed the case out of court.

With a few exceptions, such as Tory Mp David Davies, UK politicians within all the major parties stand by while the gaslighting and shaming of gender critical women continues, with no apparent regard for the safety or rights of girls and women residing in the UK.

Even the Girl Guides has capitulated to the trans cult. They recently shamefully announced their full-throated embrace of Self-Id, vowing to allow biological males in female spaces, then found themselves in a legal grey area, given that the Equality Act of 2010 still protects single sex spaces.

The debacle followed the sacking of Guiding leader Helen Watts, after she dared to criticise the organisations adoption of Self-Id, voicing concerns over safety.

The Guides are particularly worthy of mention, not least because of the suspect individuals they have employed to advise them on their trans “inclusive” policy in the past.

Individuals such as David Challenor, recently charged with the rape and torture of a 10 year old girl, who had previously claimed trans identity while dressing as an 8 year old girl.

The attack Challenor carried out included tying his 10 year old female victim to a beam in his attic, as well as whipping and administering electric shocks, raping her, and making indecent images of the assault. Other indecent images of children were also found after police searched Challenor’s home.

According to The Independent, Challenor “dressed up as a small girl in adult-sized baby dresses and nappies before carrying out the attacks at his home.”

Yet still the misogynistic machine that is the trans agenda rumbles on, claiming that feminists who cry “alarm” at the idea of letting males such as Challenor near children are “crazy transphobia bigots.”

Bigots eh?

“Bigots”, for being genuinely concerned over a recent spate of genuinely disturbing males claiming trans identity, such as Ian Huntley the child murderer, who now identifies as “Lian”, and rapist Stephen Wood, who renamed himself Karen White, and requested a transfer to all-female prison HMP New Hall, and went on to assault a string of female inmates.

Is this really bigotry?

Is this what we are to believe now in this brave, new Orwellian world, where right seems to be wrong and truth is rebranded as hate speech?

According to the trans agenda, yes it is.

The trans rights activists are hell bent on pressing full steam ahead, seemingly determined to dismantle all safeguards standing between women, children, and dangerously disturbed sexual predators.

And all our major political parties seem equally keen on jumping into bed with them, stroking their man sized egos as they merrily attempt to roll back the years of progress feminist campaigners have made.

Up until 26th of August, Aimee Challenor, born male and the son of the aforementioned David Challenor, was campaigning for the position of Deputy Leader of the Green Party.


The Green’s were apparently quite fine and dandy with this, despite the fact Aimee had named his father David, as his campaign manager,

The Green’s were apparently quite fine and dandy with this, despite the fact Aimee had named his father David, as his campaign manager, after knowing he had already been accused of child abuse.
This from the same party that instantly suspended Party member Olivia Palmer for correctly identifying a man as a man on the TV show Genderquake.

The Tories, who introduced the asinine idea of Self-Id in the first place, choose to play devil’s advocate, inviting the general public to take part in a “fair and balanced” consultation, which starts out with Minister for Equalities Penny Mordaunt making the statement “trans women are women”.

Meanwhile, as the government pretend to be open to all opinions, they are still allowing pro-Self-Id organisations like Stonewall and child-medical transition advocates Mermaids, to whisper in their ear. Both Stonewall and Mermaids have advised them on best practise when it comes to educational information on gender given to children in school.

Will the May Government, which is spearheaded by a woman, yet still seems utterly determined to pander to patriarchy and its abusive demands, really let women’s voices be heard?

Labour, meanwhile, in perhaps the most shockingly hypocritical betrayal of its entire raison d’etre, equality for all, has turned its collective back on women’s right to define themselves and safeguard their rights.

At the recent Labour Party conference held in Liverpool last week, Corbynite and Shadow Cabinet member Emily Thornberry firmly drew her (and apparently Corbyn’s) line in the sand on the whole Self-Id issue.

Thornberry claimed concerns over Self-Id were unfounded, stating that “Labour should be “a little bit more relaxed” about trans women on all-women shortlists.”

She also went on to claim that “the feminist movement is big enough and big-hearted enough that if someone believes that they have been born as a man but they are a woman, we have space.”

Really Emily? Feminism is big enough and big hearted enough to allow women, children to be assaulted and raped?

To allow women to be relentlessly harassed, persecuted, doxed, and prosecuted, merely for stating sex discrimination is a reality and the root cause of women’s oppression?

We have space for that?

Ya think?

This remains resolutely the Labour Party’s line despite the many women who have complained from within Labour about their opposition to Self-Id, and despite mountains of evidence presented to top ranking Corbybnites, including Corbyn himself, about the drawbacks of Self-Id.

The Liberal Democrats offer no alternative at all. A decidedly dodgy bunch of pro sex-work, pro Self-Id, Paeodphile apologists, with a track record of fielding former Paedo councillors like child abusers Richard Roberts, and Robert Somper, it comes as not much surprise that they are firmly.on board with the shitshow that is Self-Id.

All this of course means that gender critical feminists, women, and the portion of the UK public who are deeply concerned about Self-Id, are decidedly politically homeless if they oppose its implementation.

And it’s a crucially important issue to oppose, given what’s at stake. Everything from our freedom to debate, free speech, the right to hold a different opinion, and women and girl’s inalienable right safety is up for demolition should the trans agenda have its sinister way.

Of course, as ever, it’s women and girls who stand to lose the most, which is perhaps why the issue of Self-Id has up till now coasted comfortably under the radar.

There is still one faint sliver of hope.

With the events of this week and all the weeks preceding, the public’s attention is slowly being brought to rest upon the crucial issue of Self-Id.

The only question is, will it be too little too late?

The consultation is still open, so officially we can all have our say, but how many members of the public will really take the time to fill in the Tories long and laborious online consultation?

We should. We all should.

The future of our whole society is at stake.

And if the Tories decide to ignore the many voices opposed to Self-Id and press ahead anyway?

Then we are all going to have to decide, as a nation, whether or not we the people should oppose them.

Are we really going to allow a society that allows any man to access women’s spaces, shelters and shortlists, anytime they want to, if only they say they are a woman?

I hope not.

We are really going to have to decide whether we will get our boots on the street or not, whether we will all of us, stand with the brave women and feminists protesting against this madness.

Will we?

Will we stand with women?

A political alternative to this Orwellian madness is desperately needed for women, for girls, for everyone.

The only question is, where the bloody hell is it?

If you haven’t done so yet, please fill in the Government’s consultation on the proposed reforms to the Gender Recognition Act.

It’s long and boring but it’s a vital task, if women’s hard won rights are to remain intact.

You can find the consultation here at; https://consult.education.gov.uk/government-equalities-office/reform-of-the-gender-recognition-act/ but before you do, I highly recommend visiting the consultation walkthrough here: https://fairplayforwomen.com/how-to/ hosted on the excellent Fair Play For Women website. Here you will find comprehensive guidance to help you answer every question on the consultation, making the whole process much less painful and laborious. And afterwards pour yourself a stiff drink, because if the trans activists get their way, we’re all going to need one.

How we might bring a radical feminist world into being

Society’s current hatred of women has been taught and it can be untaught. There are many ways women can resist, from making our voices heard by standing against Self ID and harmful trans ideology, to rejecting gender stereotypes and the beauty ideal, the war against women can be fought even within society that is still a patriarchy.

But women’s true liberation will never be gained under patriarchy.

To get it we have to overthrow the system of control that is exercised through male dominance. Male control of our legal system, medical system, political system, education system, and monetary system all must be infiltrated and the unequal balance of power redressed to even ensure women get a seat at the table.

Even this will not be enough, as the system itself, Capitalism, and the exploitative way we pollute the enviroment, harm the earth, and do business, politics, and trade, all need to end, as they are harmful to women.

There are many battles that must be fought and won, if we want to see total liberation for women, utterly everywhere. This includes a total overthrow of the capitalist system, and a reversal of the privilege system that favours men over women.

Matriarchal cultures exist and have existed. They are not society’s run by “evil man hating demons from hell” they are successful, indigeneous, largely peaceful societies that flourish because they favour women over men, which has been proven to manage men’s worst traits.

If favouring one group over another sounds shocking to you, I hope you’re more than shocked by your current existence, and the historical precedent patriarchy has set of heavily favouring men over women.

Men have been favoured over women for centuries in our current Western society, a patriarchy, yet the current status quo is perpetually touted, particularly by men, as the only right way.

Convenient.

Except it’s not the right way, at least not for women.

Women everywhere are subjected to a catalogue of horrors; murder, rape, sexual slavery, harassment, misogyny, revenge porn, discrimination in the workplace, unpaid domestic servitude, body shaming, and objectification. Not to mention silencing and ridicule if we attempt to speak out about any of it.

Until the capitalist patriarchy is done with, women’s slavery will remain a certainty because the current capitalist system, only serves to prop up the status quo. That includes the interest of men, and since men still hold the reigns in many areas of society, you’re swimming against the tide if you try to play the capitalist game by their rules.

If women were in charge of a capitalist society, the system would be different, though still wrong, capitalism is never fair. It doesn’t to my mind make sense, to fight for an unfair system, a system that pollutes the environment, exploits the earth’s resources and consistently works to undermine the agency of the poor, simply because it turns a profit.

To my mind capitalism, a top down hierarchical system, which demands there must always be losers in order for there to be winners is directly in opposition to all movements demanding freedom, liberation, and justice.

As Germaine Greer said “fuck equality,” women should stop struggling for it right now. There is nothing wrong with equaliy in principle, the problem is, in this patriarchal culture, equality means being equal to a standard men get to decide. The standards by which we currently measure equality will never deliver women liberation, because men will always use an essentially patriarchal system to vault over women. All while claiming we all began the race from the same starting blocks, because, equality.

Yeah, but if society puts obstacle after obstacle in women’s path, and not men’s, if society continues to favour men, have more sympathy for men etc…who’s going to win that race?

Hint, it’s not women.

Capitalism and patriarchy have to go. Until they do women will not be free.

But how do they go?

Well first we must define the type of action we need to take.

We need to get radical.

Nothing short of a female, collective, total commitment to a program of radical action will achieve this.

We need to overthrow the status quo, and to do that we need to build our community, of radical women. We need to gather resources, network, and gather friends and allies who can helps us. We need to trade our skills, pool our resources and talents, and provide for women.

In short we must begin building a world for women, where women can be free.

We must be busy worker bees and be the first ones to plant the seed. Later the seeds will germinate, the plant will flower, and other bees will flock to the nectar that is a woman centered world.

We must also take a hard line no compromise position that does not budge one inch if we are to achieve the goal of our liberation. There are clear ways in which this could manifest, as well as definite actions which can be taken to build community, defend women, and move women closer to the goal of complete parity.

Only radical action produces radical results and in our current woman-hating culture, what could be more radical to society than the idea of viewing women as full human beings in every respect both socially and under law.

Of course, to achieve a total societal revolution like this in our current society, we’re going to need numbers. We must gather and unite and once we do we must ensure we have solidarity and general agreement on our common goals.

We must work together, cohesively to plan strategic steps that will move us forward to our final goal – total liberation from male control. We must implement each of these steps, collectively organising and sharing the labour necessary to reach that goal.

We need to put aside our differences, this fight is too important, and it will not wait. Now is the time for action, not words, and I’m all too aware of this, even as I sit here typing this blog post.

My previous post suggested some things we could do to begin making the change we want to see in the world, though it was meant as a mere jumping off post, not a comprehensive guide.

We need to get out in the real world and connect with each other, online activism alone isn’t enough.

We can volunteer at our local women’s refuge, connect with our FB radfems friends, meet with our MPs to lobby on behalf of women, and organise meetings where we can strategize and consciousness raise. We can leaflet in the community, talk to people to try and raise awareness of key issues, like the dangers to women of Self ID, and attend radfems book readings, feminist talks, and conferences where we can meet each other face to face.

Let’s make it our mission to build those real world connections and do some offline activism.

We all spend far too much time online these days, which contributes to our political passivity and our inability to take decisive change making action.

That’s exactly how those with the power want us to remain, scattered, apathetic and weak.

Don’t let them win sisters. Together, we are powerful.

Crowdfunder UK suspends Transgender Trend after pressure from trans activists

The website www.crowdfunder.co.uk has just suspended a fundraising campaign started by Transgender Trend, a group of concerned parents trying to raise financial backing in order to provide schools with the full facts about the harms of medically transitioning children.  By 1pm on 01/06/2018, the Transgender Trend fundraiser account had been suspended by Crowfunder UK, due to “an unprecedented number of complaints about the project” from trans activists.  When contacted, Crowdfunder stated the account would remain suspended while they ” investigate the project further”.
34178529_201082633843361_517701704158806016_n
 
Crowdfunder’s decision follows a targeted campaign of harassment of Transgender Trend, carried out on social media by a vocal minority of trans activists.  This campaign of harassment has seen many malicious and libelous false claims leveled against the group.  These unsubstantiated claims are now being repeated as fact by left wing outlets in the mainstream media, including by Pink News, who called Transgender Trend “deeply transphobic”.
If Crowdfunder have acted on these libelous claims, without corroborating them fully,  they themselves could be considered as acting as accessories to libel.
The views Transgender Trend expresses are the exact same views shared by many prominent medical experts, including fertility doctor, Professor Robert Winston, who stated he was now “seeing the long-term consequences of gender affirmation treatments” in his fertility clinics.
Dr Polly Carmichael, head of the UK’s only NHS clinic for children experiencing gender dysphoria, The Tavistock and Portman Centre, in North London, has endorsed the “watchful waiting” approach advocated by Transgender Trend, along with many of her medical peers in the field of Gender Identity.  Dr Carmichael has also alluded to a possible corroboration between the rise in children diagnosed with gender dysphoria, and the high numbers of gender dysphoric children at the clinic who display symptoms of autism.
 
It is vital schools and parents receive a balanced view from both sides of the debate, before deciding to send their children down the irreversible pathway to medical transition, particularly as half of the children being referred to the Tavistock Gender Identity Clinic display autistic traits, and the clinic treats patients as young as three years old.
Transgender Trend are not a hate group, they are not advocating harm or inciting violence towards transgender people.  The group’s only aim is to alert parents and schools to the potential dangers of drugs used to medically transition children, such as puberty blockers like Lupron.
Some people believe puberty blockers, “buy” children time, delaying puberty until they can make up their minds as to whether or not they want to transition.  These people mistakenly believe that there are no side effects to these drugs.  But some medical experts claim there are harmful side effects like memory problems, impaired brain development, bone damage, and infertility.
If we can’t be 100% sure there are no long term side effects from these drugs, at this stage, so is it really ethical of us to be giving these drugs to children?
At the very least, anyone responsible for the well being of children should be fully informed as to the potential dangers of medical transition.  That’s what Transgender Trend were trying to achieve with their crowdfunder, a campaign that aimed to raise vital funding that would enable them to distribute their materials to schools and parents.
Gender dysphoria is a very real and painful condition but it occurs because our society runs on an unfair, unequal gender caste system.  This system is a social construct that tries to put all of us in narrow gender stereotyped boxes by teaching us from a very early age that little girls should like pink and wear dresses, and little boys like blue and play with trucks.
Gender ideology, with it’s insistence on identities that often come with a prescribed set of behavioral traits and appearance codes, only upholds this outmoded caste system.  It’s the same system as the old sex role stereotyping Second Wave feminists attempted to break down in the 70’s and 80’s, until Queer Politics became the dominant school of thought inn Liberal society, intercepting their efforts by embracing regressive Gender Identity theory.
Don’t fall for it.
Gender Identity ideology is not progressive politics at all, it’s as old as the patriarchy itself, just wrapped up in a fancy new guise.
This unequal gender caste system limits all of our lives, particularly those of us who don’t fit neatly into the pink or blue box.
Radical feminists know that girl children will suffer from dysphoria, in a society where we frown upon ambitious girls who like to wear their hair short and kick footballs around.  We know too, that feminine boy children will suffer dysphoria, in a society that punishes boys who like to paint their fingernails, dress up as a Disney princess, or play with dolls.
It’s for this reason  we want to dismantle the gender caste system, get rid of all the limiting stereotypes, and just let all people be, whether they are masculine females, or feminine males.
But it seems as a society, we’d rather do anything other than that.
We’d rather force children (and adults) into transition in order to uphold a stereotypical worldview that brainwashes us all into believing that little girls and women should be passive, pretty, and pleasing, than we would just embrace confident, strong and clever girls who know how to fix bikes.
When we finally are ready to chuck out the stereotypes, our society will be so much healthier, not just for women, but for everyone.
Gender stereotypes are the cause of so many ills in our society, including the disregard and disrespect meted out to women.  Regressive stereotypes and ideas, like the notion women should cater to male needs, are the reason women get sexually harassed, raped, not promoted, talked over, and shamed for not fitting patriarchal standards of beauty.
As a society, we talk about #metoo and pretend to be shocked. We wonder how many women could have experienced so much harassment.
Well it’s time we had the conversation about what’s really causing the problem.
The gender caste system.
Let’s chuck it out.
Let’s all be free.
