Dear liberal feminists from a radfem sister

Dear Liberal Feminists,

If you are a liberal feminist, you probably see self proclaimed radical feminists like me as the enemy. After all, you’ve been taught to hate feminists like me, yet do you ever wonder why, when all we are fighting for is women’s liberation from male violence, male domination, and male control?

Women make up around 52% of every countries population, when we unite sisterhood is so powerful. You only have to look to the past, to the incredible gains made for women by our Second Wave sisters, to see what can happen when women unite.

Who would benefit from turning us against each other?

In whose interests do you think it is, to prioritize male interests and whims, over female bodied people’s real needs, real oppression, and real concern?

I am not against you but we both know we live in a patriarchy, and though you are probably familiar with that word, you might not realise exactly what it means, what it has done to you, to me, to all of us in society, even to men.

Patriarchy had taught us all to hate women, taught us all too well.

So well, so effectively, even when we are women ourselves, patriarchy teaches us that other women, even when they fight with our best interests at heart, are the enemy, if they dare put female needs over male ones.

Do you really believe a white, middle class trans “woman” born into a male body, and all the privilege that comes with having one, is truly more oppressed than a black working class biologically female lesbian?

The liberal left tells you yes, trans women are more oppressed, the most oppressed. And you follow what they say, and turn against your sisters, sisters who are fighting for your rights, who will always fight for your rights, even though you hate us, spit in our faces and scream TERF at us over and over again.

We are fighting for you because we love you, we love all women, even the ones that piss us off, even the ones that spit and scream in our faces.

We love women because we are women and we have unlearned the lessons of patriarchy which teaches us to hate ourselves.

Loving women is not something our society encourages. That’s why it hates radical feminists so much, because we do love women, and we will fight for women’s interests, over men’s.

So you attack us, following the current liberal dogma, screaming TERF even though somewhere inside, if you really stop and think, you know something feels wrong.

Why does it feel wrong sometimes?

Think about who is telling you to turn against us?

Who tells you trans women are the most oppressed, who screams it the loudest?

Does this sentiment most often and most strongly come from male mouths, or female ones?

Has your movement ever centred ONE thing that exclusively could ONLY effect biological females?

You know, things like child brides, honour killings of Muslim women, female infanticide, abortion, poor girls who are prevented from going to school because of lack of access to sanitary products, Female Genital Mutilation, breastfeeding mothers?

Think about it.

Now ask yourself this question.

Do you really still think you’re part of a truly feminist movement?

The reason for most women’s oppression is our biology, not our gender identity.

This is not to say, some passing trans women, won’t be perceived as having female biology and suffer some, a tiny fraction of the discrimination that born women face from birth.

But even then, they have a lifetime of male socialisation, male privilege, and they still have male biology, a biology our society loves, a body we privilege in nearly every walk of life.

Are you sure your movement really cares about women with female biology?

How can you be sure when they tell you female biology doesn’t exist, that a vagina is not female, that uteruses are just a body part?

Do you believe that’s true?

Do you really believe trans women’s are women just because they say they are?

Do you really, truly believe that a female child in Pakistan could tell her “husband” she was male, and he would not force her into marriage, not force her into his bed?

If not why not?

Is it because of her biology?

Is it because you know, deep down, that saying something doesn’t necessarily make it so, particularly when it comes to ignoring the scientific fact of biology?

Could your father have given birth to you?

If not, why not?

All we are doing, us witches, us TERFS, is trying to keep the hard won sex based rights, and legal protections, our sisters secured for women back in the 70’s and 80’s.

We are doing this not because we hate trans people, because we don’t hate them, nor do we wish them any harm.

We don’t want to stop trans people dressing how they want, or even changing their bodies, if they want, though we don’t want the medical establishment to give harmful blockers like Lupron to children under the age of 16.

We definitely would be the first ones out screaming on the streets if anyone tried to take away the protections and rights that trans people currently have under the protected category of Gender Reassignment, which guarantees them access to healthcare, respect, and protection from discrimination.

We definitely think it would be healthier to dismantle the system of gender itself, which pushes harmful, limiting stereotypes on men and women, than it is to medicate healthy bodies, and cut of healthy sexual organs.

But we can’t stop grown adults doing what they want to their bodies and we don’t want to. That’s not what this is about.

What this is about are the harmful proposed Self ID laws the UK government and many other governments around the world are currently considering. We don’t agree with allowing anyone to self identify and say they are a woman just because they say so..

Because in this patriarchal society, which hates women, and resents the gains towards liberation we have made, we know what is likely to happen if you allow just anyone to say they are a woman.

We know because it’s already happening.

Women can’t say we suffer oppression because of our biology. We can’t state this simple fact or we are called TERFs. You know this is true because this is what you call us yourself.

And soon, it will be hate speech to speak this simple truth.

But will that stop the female genital mutilation, the sexual harassment that women exponentially suffer from because men see female biology and assign lesser value to it, the rapes, the lack of sanitary protection for poor women, the domestic violence, the murder, the many, many degrading pornographic images and videos of people with female biology.

Can you be sure the Self ID law won’t be abused by predators like Ian Huntley, who is now self identifying as Nicola, the name of one of his victim’s mother?

Will making female biology hate speech end all the injustice and oppression biological women and girls suffer from?

Will passing self ID guarantee that predatory men who hate women won’t use it as a chance to trample over the gains born women have made?

If so, carry on doing what you are doing.

If not, you might want to reconsider whose interests you are fighting for when you centre male interests, and place male needs over women’s, over your own.

I know you’re just trying to survive in a world that hates women, people with female biology.

I know it feels good to feel like your the special one, the cool girl, the one who isn’t hated by men.

But they only act like they don’t hate you because at the moment at least you’re useful to them. You do everything they tell you to do don’t you?

Have you tried to see what would happen when you voice a contrary opinion or try to centre your own female needs to Leftie men like Owen Jones?

I think inside you already know.

Do you really think when they won’t even let women organise against our own sex oppression as class, that Leftie men really care about you?

You are a woman after all. And not the kind liberal left guys like Owen Jones like.

You’re have the wrong biology for that I’m afraid.

The worst part is, liberal left is guys like Owen Jones don’t even see trans women as women.

They show that they see trans women as men, by centering them, and supporting them, even when trans women threaten violence to an incredibly oppressed group, biological women and girls.

Leftie men like Owen Jones show that they really see trans women as men when they let trans women tell born women how to identify, telling us we must use the term cis.

Leftie guys like Owen won’t even let born women define ourselves, let alone define anyone else.

That’s how we know they see trans women as men. But they see you as a woman. They will always see you as just a woman.

Because of your biology.

And if one day you need help and support, they won’t be there for you, because they don’t care.

But we care. And we will always be there.

If you think that by selling your sisters out, by turning away from us, or by screaming TERF at us, it will make the kind of men who hate women love you or even like you, you are sadly mistaken.

The only kind of women they will ever like or love, are the kind they really see as men.

If you are reading this, know we radical feminists will always fight for you. But we can’t guarantee we will win, because women are hated, especially women who fight for other women.

We will never give up,though we wish you would join us.

Because the simple truth is, if you and other women like you stand with us, if all women stand with us, we know we could end all this injustice, put a stop to all the oppression.

We know this because we, women are half the population, and we know this because sisterhood is powerful.

Love,

Your radfem Sister

Corbyn’s Labour – a breeding ground for misogynist and antisemitic hatred

This week saw Corbyn’s Labour underperforming in the UK local elections, a result, due at least in part to the leader’s refusal to address the antisemitic and misogynistic bigotry that simmers amongst many supporters of the British hard left today …

After eight years of a Tory government, which has seen the Grenfell disaster and Windrush scandal happen on their watch, and considering the Brexit debacle continues to rumble on, you’d expect the opposition to be enjoying a comfortable lead on the incumbent government by now.

But because of the Labour leader’s dismissal, and wilful ignorance of Jews and women, Labour paid the price at the recent polls, not gaining the ground needed to convince skeptics Corbyn can win a General Election.

What’s more, they are certain to do so again at the next General Election, as the Jewish community, and biological women wake up and smell the coffee.

Corbyn doesn’t care about women, and he doesn’t care about Jews.

Quite how Labour has any biological female or Jewish supporters left leaves me often scratching my head in confusion.

The Labour party, has traditionally always been the party for the oppressed, geared firmly towards championing more rights for women, and for fighting against all forms of racism, including antisemitism.

Today, Labour continue to claim they are the party for justice for all, but in reality, Corbyn’s Labour Party is really only concerned with justice for some.

As if that wasn’t disappointing enough, even more worryingly, often what Corbyn supporters claim to champion in the name of justice, ( like Labour’s adoption of Self ID for the transgendered even though Self ID is not yet leg), hypocritically results in the oppression of others, i.e. women, and fans the flames of misogynist bigots, which is not justice at all.

With Corbyn’s continued, stubborn refusal to acknowledge the concerns of female members of Labour, concerned about the impact the ill-thought out Self ID policy may have on them, he empowers misogynistic Left Wing males to belittle, talk over, and shut down women’s debate.

Labour has morphed into a movement that is championing something far more sinister than justice.

Corbyn also stands by while sickening, malicious, venomous and violent Jew hatred is spewed from his supporters mouths, an attitude that is commonly found among members of the British Left today, as antisemitism weaves it’s tentacles tightly throughout the body politic of Corbyn’s Labour Party.

The Hard Left wing of Labour, Corbyn’s base, is rife with anti-semetic memes, passive aggressive allegories alluding to “oily, slimey, slippery, all powerful Jews, controlling the world”, outright lies such as “ Jews are responsible for 9/11”, and venomous hatred directed towards the Jewish community.

Anti-semites such as Ken Livingstone should have no place in any right thinking humanitarian party.Livingstone’s continued presence is unacceptable for a Party who claims their reason for being is to ensure “human rights for all”.

Livingstone’s continued presence is unacceptable for a Party who claims their reason for being is to ensure “human rights for all”.
Neither should Labour enable paedophile apologist Peter Tatchell, who previously authored a forward to a book that championed sex between 9 year old boys and adults.

In Corbyn’s Labour Party, anti-semites, paedophile apologists, and misogynists are magically transformed into freedom fighters against oppression, while radical feminists who try to dismantle the gender construct by pointing out that if girls aren’t passive, and like to climb trees that doesn’t make them boys, are demonized, ridiculed, terrorised, and silenced.

Another core competence of the Corbynite Left is championing the oppression of free speech, free debate, and free thoughts, under the guise of protecting the vulnerable from hate speech.

To some, protecting the vulnerable from bigoted hate speech might seem like a noble goal, indeed, stamping out bigotry everywhere is a goal of mine, and as a previous lifelong Leftist, always has been.

But what is bigotry?

And what is hate speech according to Corbyn’s supporters?

You might think that violently threatening to punch a woman’s face in, rape her, then burn her alive, just because she happens to state the fact that women are oppressed on the basis of their sex was to use hate speech.

With Corbyn’s Left, it’s the other way around.

In Corbyn’s Labour,radical feminist women are painted as violent oppressors to trans people, and therefore any form of violence directed towards them can be justified.
When did the basis of women’s oppression become anathema to Labour?

When did biology become hatred?

The fact that women are oppressed because of their biology is a fact that can be corroborated by many instances of misery apparent to all of us who care to acknowledge them. It is apparent in the killing of baby girls in Pakistan, in the suppression of the female sex in Iran, Saudi Arabia, and numerous other Middle and Far eastern countries around the world, in the barbaric practice of Female Genital Mutilation that is inflicted on those with female sex parts with the aim and intention to deprive them of natural sexual pleasure, and in so many other innumerable, shocking, horrific, and sad ways.

Even in modern Britain, female bodied people are still, to this day, discriminated against on the basis of their biology.

Fat shaming is a hateful thing, whoever it is done too, but you only have to watch a larger sized biological man walking down the street, and observe how he is treated, then watch the reactions to a larger woman, to see a clear and startling difference.

What on earth is society discriminating on, if not biology?

After all, no one asked either person their gender identity before discriminating?

Gender identity is not the main basis for women’s discrimination, biology is.

In Corbyn’s warped world of Orwellian madness, a woman merely stating fact, immediately becomes an oppressor, simply because her opinion is not in step with the current, misogynistic Party policy.

Such is the rampant misogyny that runs as rife in the left as the virulent antisemitism the Corbynites enthusiastically cultivate.

Yes hate speech, according to Corbyn’s acolytes is now nothing more than mere biological fact and reality, a horrific reality that has limited so many millions of female lives, and will limit many more.

Far too frequently the basis of women’s oppression, their biology, also ends women’s lives, in a misogynistic spiral of brutal violence, rape, and sadistic torture.

We are currently all inhabiting in an incredibly sadistic society, and though there are now voices from all walks of life who are starting to speak out against this, the one area that should be the champion of the truly oppressed, the Left, is now failing, many, badly.

I don’t know what it is about Corbyn, but misogynistic males seem to flock to follow him, and the hard left of Labour is now chock full of ’em.

Is this the revenge of those our cruel, hierarchical society would dub the “beta male”? Is this not what we see with the rise of the Incel, the ultimate beta male in our society’s eyes due to his lack of prowess with women.

Incels espouse about their fantasies of killing Chads, who they see as so called Alpha males. Chads in reality are more than likely just nice, normal guys who can actually talk to women because they like them.

Chads probably don’t harbour a simmering misogynistic resentment of women, don’t have a problem with women succeeding, and so can actually talk to and experience relationships women as though women are human.

When I look at males our society would class as beta, whether through physical stature, economic stature, career success, confidence, strength, prowess with women, I see the resentment they must harbour at being unfairly labelled as less than.

It is indeed unfair, as radical feminists have been shouting for years, that there be one model of ideal man and one model of ideal woman.

That ideal is what the gender caste system demands from us all, as without the gender polarities, it would crumble.Radical feminists have been wanting society to take a good hard look at the the ridiculous gender caste system for decades, and have been getting pilloried, decried as man hating witches, or dismissed as lunatics for equally as long.

Radical feminists have been wanting society to take a good hard look at the the ridiculous gender caste system for decades, and have been getting pilloried, decried as man hating witches, or dismissed as lunatics for equally as long.

It seems there are many who are determined to make the gender caste system last for as long as they possibly can, and shockingly many of these people are in Corbyn’s Labour.

Instead of supporting radical feminists, and seeing the clear parallels between female’s oppression, and the discrimination they might suffer, lefty dude bros, Incels, and other like-minded misogynistic types show their true characters.

They turn their resentment at our bigoted society, and their feelings of entitlement to sex, into pathological hatred of women.

This, despite the obvious fact that women are not the ones who keep the shitshow that is the gender caste system going, as women do not directly benefit from it.

The measure of a person is what they do when they chips are down, I.e when they are not in top, like those we label “beta males”.

Despite the relative privilege these lefty bros still have over all women in our horribly unjust society, they seek to reassure their own insecurities and claw some feeling of superiority back, by seeking to suppress women.

Left wing misogynists gain satisfaction from women’s pain and disenfranchisement, why is why they also promote the sex industry, and defend violent porn, so they can derive sadistic pleasure from seeing females subjugated, sold, enslaved, traded, choked, beaten, tied up and raped.

This is the nature of a sadist, and having been close to a couple of sadists I recognise the trait rather well.

Too many men on the Left today are weak, insecure men who prefer to suppress, silence, and bully females than stand in solidarity and fight with them against our unfair, hierarchical society.

This is the exact type of male who seems to be attracted to Corbyn’s Left, and the same type of male who seeks to paint out radical feminists as demonic entities from hell.

Our society, ruled by an extremely rigid gender caste system, has always traditionally shunned the more sensitive man, or feminine man, in order to keep the gender caste system going.

After all, you can’t have one without the other right, females must be passive and pleasing, so males must be manly and strong right?

Except not in the perverse world of the misogynistic Corbynite male. In their world, they can somehow square being anticapitalist with promoting the sex trade, the most capitalist industry there is.

Corbynites can also square being firmly against racism, while at the same time spewing vile antisemitic bile that wouldn’t sound out of place in 1930’s Germany.

The rationale in the type of perverse, sadistic mind prevalent in the Corbynite Left today seems to be that there is no rationale.
It’s an “I can because I can” attitude, even as they hypocritically rail against others who take a similar approach, such as the Trump’s of this world, whose motto surely must be “I can so I will”.

It’s an “I can because I can” attitude, even as they hypocritically rail against others who take a similar approach, such as the Trump’s of this world, whose motto surely must be “I can so I will”.

Yet they hate Trump, not because he is unpleasant, obnoxious, coarse, and often grossly racist, but mostly because he is the exact type of male that in this society we sadly view as an Alpha type, or close to an Alpha type.

He’s not of course, as in reality, if there is an Alpha male, he would be confident, and assured enough of his own personhood to have no need to bully others, whip up racial hatred, or play dogwhistle politics.
Still the Trumpian male with his bellowy tones, braggadocio, and economic success has become the model for manliness the gender caste system relies on.

Still the Trumpian male with his bellowy tones, braggadocio, and economic success has become the model for manliness the gender caste system relies on.

Would these Lefty bros hate Trump if the only thing Trump had ever done was be misogynistic to women?

Doubtful. They proclaim themselves Marxists but when it comes to the oppression of women or Jews as a class, and Marx’s own writings on the oppression of women as a class, they conveniently forget their Marxist leanings and sound off like any good old Republican or old fashioned Tory.

Even in the Tory party, it’s getting hard to find the levels of sexism, anti Semitism, and misogyny that seem to run rife throughout the Left these days.

This hatred is fanned into flames by Corbyn’s continued disregard and dismissal, of biological women and Jews, and their needs and concerns.

Marxist my arse. More like middle class spoilt over-entitled brats sore that they have never been seen as the manliest, and taking their revenge out on females for the inch of progress women have made.

Women’s progress directly threatens Lefty bro, more than it even threatens someone like Trump, as Trump at least knows, that in the fetid hotbed that is our society, perversely he is seen as somewhere near the top.

Lefty bro though desperately seeks to climb higher to the top of the patriarchal pyramid, and it is women progressing that threatens his deep seated need to feel superior.

Though of course not every male in the Left is an insecure misogynist hell bent on blocking women’s progress, and not every man who would be viewed as the beta type is a misogynist, it would be dangerous to underestimate the embittered revenge of the type of insecure male attracted to the Left today, for they are all too present in Corbyn’s Labour Party.

Corbyn does nothing to tackle misogyny, even as he espouses his 50/50 quotas for female MPs, and promises to pardon the suffragettes.

Not does he do anything to dismantle the ugly vein of anti-semitic hatred that is snaking its way through the hard left in Britain.

For this reason, I encourage all women and Jews, as a matter of conscience, to abandon Labour, and Corbyn, for he is not acting in the interests, nor from this unpromising start, do I believe he ever will.

Boycott UK Labour – The Party that HATES women

104456730-352-k968489The Labour Party have just announced that biological women who want to apply for positions in Young Labour must self-identify, or they will not be eligible for these places.  On the other hand, anyone else who self-identifies as a woman, aka any biological male, will automatically be eligible for any of the “women only” positions the Labour Party previously reserved for the female sex.

The party political decision was recently announced by Dawn Butler, and is a staggering one, not least because of the implications for biological women everywhere.

The Labour Party has drawn its line in the sand, and made it clear, it is NOT a party for women, it is a party that hates their agency and wants to erode it.  Now 100% of the positions within Labour are eligible to biological males.  This is incredibly problematic for several reasons, not least because we all know that no matter how you identify, sex based discrimination is real.

Do we really believe that if a woman were to identify as a man, she would be treated with the same privileges? Not unless she had taken hormones and had surgery so that she resembled a biological male.  Even then UK law says, she is still ineligible to inherit aristocratic titles reserved purely for the male sex.

Sex based discrimination is real, and women lose out every day because of it.  With this misogynistic pronouncement, Labour are declaring they don’t care, they don’t care that it’s harder for women to gain political power, which is why positions had to be set aside for them in the first place.

What on earth is the point of reserving these positions, if they are going to open them to all anyway? And if all it takes to claim a spot reserved for women is to self-identify, are we really all so sure this policy of Labour’s won’t be abused by pernicious Men’s Right’s Activists, who would do anything to remove biological women from positions of power.

That’s right, biological women.  Strangely MRA’s seem quite peachy keen on trans women.  I wonder why, could it be that they hate biological women, oh I don’t know, because they are biologically female?

UK law it seems, still recognizes sex as a protected characteristic, at least for now, though UK Labour clearly do not.  The party is in fact in breach of the law with this recent announcement, not least because the proposed Gender reforms that would make self-idenfication legal, have not yet been passed, nor codified into our British legal system.

The party also finds itself in flagrant breach of British law with its recent appointment of Lily Madigan, formerly Liam Madigan, to the role of Women’s Officer for Rochester and Strood.  Lily is not in possession of a Gender Recognition Certificate and so is not legally a woman in the eyes of the British courts, a strange conundrum indeed because Labour’s own policy explicitly states that the position can only go to a legally recognized woman.

Yet Labour do not seem to care about breaking the law, nor about the hundreds of women who have already loudly voiced their concerns about the party’s enthusiasm for self-identification.  Peculiarly though, it does appear to care rather disproportionately about the tiny proportion of transgender activists who demand access to biological women’s bathroom’s, women’s positions, women’s spaces.

Labour cares so much in fact, that Venice Allan, a gender critical feminist and Labour Party member was recently booted out of the Labour Feminist Christmas Party, because her presence was apparently making Lily Madigan feel unsafe.  Yes we live in an age where anyone who does not agree with the Labour Party’s current ethos, that anyone can be a woman, that sex is not a biological reality, and the basis of women’s oppression, becomes a threat to be removed or no-platformed.

Labour, previously the party of free speech, is now in perilous danger of becoming the party of fascist totalitarianism, if it isn’t there already.  And of course let’s not forget, yet another extremely sinister, but easy to overlook drawback about the party’s  enthusiastic love-in with self-identification.

By forcing women to self-identify as  women and by simultaneously declaring “anyone can be a woman” if they say they are, regardless of sex” Labour handily both coerce women into agreeing they embrace oppression and erase the possibility of discussing that oppression in one fell swoop.

After all how can you possibly be oppressed because of your sex if trans women are just the same as you.  Aren’t Labour actually saying that sex doesn’t exist and anyone can be a woman?

And, hints Labour insidiously, how can women be oppressed?  After all, look by self-identifying as a woman, they are choosing to be a woman, and who would voluntarily choose to be oppressed?  No, the party’s logic goes, if women are choosing to be women, therefore they are choosing all that comes with that.  It means they identify with the sex role stereotyping, the misogyny, the disbarring from public life, the harassment, the under-representation, the idea that what makes a woman is a pretty dress and a pair of heels, the list goes on …and on.

Women wake up.  Resign your Labour party membership.  We have tried to reason with senior Labour figures, even at the highest level, yes Jeremy Corbyn, I am talking about you too, but they haven’t listened.  We have tried to broach meaningful discussion with the party’s various apparatchiks, but they have dismissed our concerns as well.

Meanwhile, the momentum machine roles misogynistically on, hell bent on erasing women’s hard won progress and collecting our subscription fees while doing it.  Confident on their power, drunk on their arrogance, they count on women to propel them into number 10, where you can wager they will try and implement their brand of brocialism to the detriment of women.

I don’t care how great you think Corbyn is, or how much of a die hard left winger you have always been.  The truth is plain to see, Labour hates women.  If you are one, GET OUT NOW.

Boycott Labour, hit them where it hurts, in the wallet and at the ballot box.  Women are a hugely powerful body politic, let’s not let ourselves be used to prop up a party that clearly has no regard for us.

This misogynistically soaked version of the Labour party needs to be taught a hard lesson. Perhaps once they have hemorrhaged enough female support, finally Labour will do what they should have done from the off, listen to women and boot out the disgusting misogynists who hate them.
