These two tweets were directed at me during a Twitter spat I had with James Billingham a couple of months ago. Yes, he really is one of those men who presume to adjudicate on what feminism is. I can’t in all seriousness believe he thinks I care what he would “love” to see me do. Rather, I think these tweets were intentionally condescending to me in order to virtue-signal to his followers, who will probably applaud the insufferable arrogance of a man telling a woman old enough to be his mother how she should be doing feminism.
Weeks ago I drafted a blog post but then I got ill and, by the time I recovered, I had all sorts of other things to worry about and I forgot all about it. I’ve just found it again and, although it hardly newsworthy now…hell, I wrote it so here it is.
The Morning Star newspaper recently published this cartoon:
When I first saw this cartoon, I immediately took it is as lampooning the policy of allowing gender self-identification and the idea that a man should be accepted as a woman just because he says he identifies as one.
Cowardly bullies get my video about Tara Wolf wanting to smash my face in with the support of Freedom News taken down from YouTube so here is the full content
Edited 27.02.20 if you prefer to watch the video rather than read the transcript, it is now uploaded to Vimeo.
To recap: In my last blog post, I pointed out that Tara Wolf is a danger to women. I also drew attention to an anonymous defamatory article about me on some waste-of-space loony-tunes anarchist site called Freedom News. I considered suing them but decided it would be more fun to make a video refuting their claims, challenging them to a debate and just generally mocking them, in the full expectation that they wouldn’t have the guts or the brains to respond by any other means than trying to silence me.
And so it has come to pass. As expected, they didn’t respond to my challenge and rebutted nothing I said in the video because they know as well as I do that they can’t. Like Tara Wolf himself, they are liars, cowards and bullies.
And as expected, they complained to youtube about the video who have removed it on the pretext that it supposedly violates some rule about privacy, even though all the content in that video was or had been in the public domain. Every video I have produced with me in it has been the subject of complaints by trans activist bullies and, because of this, I always have the transcript and content ready to put into a blog.
I do, of course, have the option of uploading the video they don’t want you to see directly to this site and I might get round to doing that when I’m less busy. In the meantime, here is the transcript:
Tara Flik Wolf wants to smash my face in proper and the anonymous cowards of Freedom News support him
Tara Flik Wolf aka Wood is a danger to women. Not necessarily all women all of the time. Those who show sufficient reverence, who nurture his false identity, who feed his fantasies and fail to challenge the disturbed and disordered behaviour he displays – in particular, his manifest eagerness to intimidate and hurt women – are probably safe for the time being.
Every other woman is at risk – men, not so much. Actually not at all, I reckon.
How might I personally have offended this mentally unstable individual over the years? Firstly, by gathering with others at a public meeting point to go to a feminist meeting, secondly by filming a protest staged by him and other offended anti-feminists at Speakers’ Corner, thirdly by reporting the punishment he inflicted on me for doing so to the police and co-operating with the criminal justice system. Fourthly, by commenting on a Facebook page nearly two years after he was convicted of assaulting me.
In spite of his mental illness, Tara Flik Wolf is highly privileged, not least in having the fierce protection afforded to him by the lackeys and handmaids of groups like Class War, Sisters Uncut and the Freedom Press website, which recently posted an extremely vicious, false and defamatory article about me.
I am grateful to all those who have – whether publicly or privately – articulated their anger and disgust at the behaviour of these regressive political groups while expressing support for me. After considering the matter carefully, I’ve decided not to do anything about either Wolf or Freedom News at the moment apart from make another video because my saying anything public about Tara Wolf seems to upset them quite a lot.

We know by now that trans activists will – without a trace of irony – describe anyone who doesn’t fully submit to their absurd ideology and prioritise their interests over all others as ‘haters’, ‘bigots’ and ‘transphobes’. That includes anyone concerned with preserving women’s sex-based protections from men whose claim to womanhood is based on subjective feelings and anyone who dares to point out that gay/lesbian means same-sex attracted.
Having seen WPUK repeatedly described, since its launch in November 2017, as a ‘hate group’ for brazenly stating that they are against all forms of discrimination, that they believe in the right of everyone to live their lives free from discrimination and harassment and for – heaven forbid – even providing a platform to transsexual speakers like Kristina Harrison and Debbie Hayton, who dare to disagree with certain articles of transgender faith, it came as no surprise to see, from the moment it was set up in October last year, the LGB Alliance described in the exact same way. Nor was it a surprise that it was targeted with various acts of malice and attempted sabotage, such as the setting up of fake Twitter accounts purporting to be from the Alliance and getting its crowdfunding page temporarily taken down after falsely representing its motives to JustGiving.
But what are the motives of the LGB Alliance and why is it attracting such opprobrium?
After enduring a tsunami of abuse, falsehoods and defamation over the past twenty-seven months, my main aim in making these videos is simply to get the truth about my assault by trans activists at Speakers’ Corner in September 2017 out there.
I’ve done this by using the videos taken at the location, zooming in and slowing down on the crucial scenes. This tends to be a more satisfactory way of showing what actually happened than selecting stills and adding to them a false narrative in the hope that people are stupid enough to believe it.
I originally posted a few paragraphs of this story on the front page of this site under the title, ‘Shame on you Toronto’. As I like to keep front-page stories short and this one keeps growing, I’m turning it into a blog post.
Meghan Murphy is a Canadian feminist who has the courage to do what feminists are supposed to do and stand up for women. She is the creator of the excellent Feminist Current site.
Opposed to her are those who prioritise the feelings of men and their entitlement to redefine what women are.
I first got wind of the fact that Meghan Murphy was scheduled to speak at an event – organised by a group called ‘Radical Feminists Unite’ – in a building belonging to the Toronto Public Library (TPL) when I saw something about a bunch of local authors threatening to boycott the library.
We live in a world where such iniquities as child marriage, female foeticide, the torture and sexual abuse of teenage boys and the trafficking and enslavement of vulnerable human beings continues unabated, not to mention Turkey’s current offensive against Syrian Kurdish forces, during which dozens of innocent civilians have already died and 150,000 people have been forced to flee for their lives. So here’s an idea:
Let’s celebrate #InternationalPronounsDay!
On the day we hear that our queen video-maker, Magdalen, has died, it feels all the more poignant to be posting the first video I’ve ever set out to produce on youtube. If you can’t wait to see it, scroll down.
Two years ago today, I was assaulted by vicious nasty male trans activists, at Speakers’ Corner. Two days later a woman I’d never heard of before wrote a poem about the event. I wish somebody had told me about that poem at the time. It would have made a pleasant change from the screenshots of all the hate I was getting, blaming me for provoking or even starting the violence – single-handedly, of course – against a bunch of thugs in their 20s, whose sole purpose in coming to Speakers’ Corner had been to bully and harass a group of people waiting to go to a meeting about proposed changes to legislation.
Magdalen died today.
Three weeks ago, on 21st August, after months of wondering how she was, we finally heard that all hope was lost. That was the day we knew that most of us would never see her in the flesh again, we’d never hear another passionate, spontaneous oratory from her at a public meeting, never again get rat-arsed with her in the pub afterwards. We would never watch another of her extraordinary, brilliant, sometimes brutal and often hilarious videos except, perhaps, the last one – the one we were tantalisingly told was in the pipeline.
Given the hostility, abuse and aggression that some lesbians have been experiencing at Pride events around the country and abroad, it’s hardly surprising that they should feel excluded and unsafe and want an event of their own.
A few weeks ago, a group called Lesbian Strength took out a free advert in Leeds Council’s ‘what’s on’ guide, promoting a lesbian-only march to take place on 7 September. As the word ‘lesbian’ means ‘female homosexual’, there was no need to specify that only women would be welcome on it, right? Continue reading
This line, which manages to be both unusually honest and typically disdainful at the same time, occurs two minutes into a video by a popular transgender youtuber called Natalie Wynn, better known as ContraPoints. The video is entitled Gender Critical and, at the time of writing, it has had close to a million and a half views and attracted 90k ‘likes’.
Like most videos produced by trans activists, I wouldn’t be giving it the time of day were it not for the fact that I’ve seen it promoted left, right and centre on social media by people who obviously think it’s good and, in a perverse way, it is. Clearly, a lot of time, work, skill and creativity went into its production. Most importantly, the arguments are presented in such a way as to sound convincing even to some who would probably claim to be scientific sceptics but who, for some reason, leave their scepticism to one side when it comes to pseudo-scientific and regressive transgender ideology.
The fact that I see the video being promoted by people who should know better, means that I have to take a closer look at the content to see what I can learn and what I can pass on to people who, like me, find Wynn’s persona and style rather irritating but who, unlike me, aren’t willing to spend time studying the transcript, which I’ve copied here.
Having done that, I’ve decided that there is too much to respond to for one blog so I’ll focus on one thing for now:
…or, to be precise, the Green Room diner at the National Theatre on London’s South Bank.
It was late afternoon on Friday 5 July 2019, the day before the city’s main Pride event. Earlier the same day, the National Theatre (NT) Twitter account had announced they were ready for the weekend and posted a photo of the theatre decked in the rainbow flag. Another rainbow flag hung behind the bar of the Green Room.
A group of people – mainly women – had spent the day protesting outside Stonewall’s Children and Young People conference, a few minutes’ walk away. At the end of the afternoon, they took pics of themselves outside the Hayward Gallery, in front of posters promoting some creepy exhibition. Then some of them went on to the Green Room, others went to a nearby food fair and got a bite to eat there, while a few others took the huge placards they’d held at the protest back to the vehicle they were using. They all eventually went on to meet up at the Green Room.
Those who’d gone straight to the Green Room had bought drinks and were sitting outside in the sunshine by the time the others arrived. Of the later arrivals, only a man in the group got served. It seems a member of staff took exception to the women, some of whom were wearing lesbian T-shirts. They were refused service.
I had no problem teaching my children to read pre-school or in nurturing their love of reading fiction. I was immensely proud of them, though I admit there was a large element of self-interest in encouraging them to early literacy. With a library at the end of our street, it was to prove a low cost and effective way of giving me a break from them, annoying little beasts that they were.
I quite liked reading the books written for their age groups before passing them on to one or other of them, as long as it was a good story that was well-written with believable characters and I didn’t have to constantly remind myself that whatever I was reading was written for youngsters, as I did with John Boyne’s latest offering. Although according to this interview, he claims not to write with a particular audience in mind, that just doesn’t ring true with this book which, of course, I only bought because people were calling for it to be boycotted. If there hadn’t been a fuss made about it, it wouldn’t have been on my radar and how depressing it is that the would-be censors of today have learned nothing from the past.
But even as we grasp at victory, there’s a cancer, an evil tumour growing, spreading in our midst.
Shout it! SHOUT! Shout out his her name!
The title of this blog is inspired by a short piece entitled, J.K. Rowling Has Been Following Anti-Trans Activists and We Need an Explanation, written by one Alysia Stevenson who, “when she’s not writing, you can find her watching beauty tutorials on Youtube or Parks and Rec for the millionth time.”
An article by someone who, with all due respect (i.e. none at all), is a total no-mark in the world of journalism on trans-related topics, wouldn’t be worth commenting on, were it not for what it tells us about how someone who appears to be a typical trans ally ‘thinks’ (for want of a better word).
The article appears as a news item (seriously!) on an unbelievably crappy website called Femestelle.com. The ‘we’ who supposedly ‘need’ this explanation are, of course, the dim-witted despots of the trans cult who, just when I think they couldn’t get any more narcissistic, step up to the crease and prove me wrong.
One of the things I was somewhat hurt by in the weeks after I was assaulted at Speakers Corner was the lack of contact from Humanists UK. I was Facebook friends with the CEO and several other high profile humanists and the night after I was assaulted I posted an emotive rant, which was shared widely. A lot of people – including some humanists I consider to be dear friends – expressed sympathy and support but there wasn’t a peep from the leadership of the organisation I had been a member of for a quarter of a century. I’d also been a humanist funeral celebrant for eight years and, early this century, I had spent a couple of years there in full-time employment as a development officer.
I envisage any trans activists reading the above to be nodding approvingly at the lack of interest and compassion from Humanists UK. To trans activists I am a hate figure. I am the guilty party who instigated a violent attack on a poor innocent 25-year-old, 6-foot-plus “trans girl”. I am a liar, a hater, a bigot, a transphobe extraordinaire, a giant terrifying beast, a white supremacist, a Nazi.
When a woman gets attacked by a man (or three) and the attacker claims to be a woman, there are two options open to trans activists and their allies. One is to unreservedly condemn the attack and distance themselves from the attacker(s); the other is to try to spin the attack, to minimise it, to make it sound like it wasn’t really an attack, that the victim had provoked it in some way or simply that she deserved it because of her (assumed) views. Trying to make out that it was the victim who was, in fact, the attacker and the violent male assailant was some poor unfortunate “trans girl” or even that it was a set-up deliberately intended to entrap a trans person – both of which happened in my case – are optional extras.
Here is a recently published article by philosophy professor, Kathleen Stock, on Medium. It was co-written with five other feminist academics ( Sophie Allen, Jane Clare Jones, Holly Lawford-Smith, Mary Leng, Rebecca Reilly-Cooper), who are united in that they are all
I’ve added the emphasis because it’s a clear explanation of one of the most important reasons why we challenge transgender ideology and why I now believe we should resist every aspect of it (including its vocabulary – something that the article notably doesn’t do but then it would probably be removed by Medium’s anti-feminist censors if it did).
Claire Graham, who currently tweets as @MRKHVoice, is helpfully compiling a list and I thank her for allowing me to reproduce it here – or rather, the first dozen items on it. Last time I looked, the list had grown to over 70 items so, once you’ve absorbed this page, do be sure to check the rest of them on her Twitter timeline. I’m sure we can all learn to do better. (Quotes from articles linked to were selected by me.)
1. Gender neutral toilets – transphobic.
“Chelsea Dyapa, a third-year philosophy student, said she thought the policy was discriminatory because it could potentially be too costly to implement, limiting the number of gender-inclusive facilities campuswide.”
The article by @UglaStefania aka Owl Fisher that appeared with this title last week is one of the worst I’ve ever read. OK, there’s plenty of competition out there but this monstrosity wasn’t published on some unknown blog languishing in a dusty corner of the internet. It wasn’t even on Medium where trans writers regularly publish such torturous rubbish as the piece I blogged about recently. This one by Owl Fisher was on the Metro news site! What on earth were you thinking of, Metro?
I have, on this site, devoted a page to bad arguments by trans people and allies but this one plumbs new depths of absurdity. The problem with it is so obvious that I’m not even sure it’s worth adding to that page, lest it insults the intelligence of readers of this site (a predicament that doesn’t concern editors of Metro, obviously).
“hypocritical disgusting judgmental bigot”
“narcissistic bigoted harasser”
“toxic individual who peddles bigotry”
“very nasty bully”
“disgusting judgmental bigot”
“sad middle-aged individual hater”
“should be sectioned under mental health act”
“sewer of shite”
These are quotes from some of the tweets read out in Court 37 of the Royal Courts of Justice in London last week, at a hearing to consider an application for an interim injunction against Caroline Farrow by Stephanie Hayden. Given that Hayden was the one seeking the injunction, having turned up at her home to serve the papers in person just a few days earlier, you’d be forgiven for thinking that these tweets were by Caroline about the claimant but actually it’s the other way round. Amanda Jones, counsel for the defence, said there were about 70 tweets that were “immensely abusive of the defendant by the claimant”.
What members of the trans cult are too stupid to realise is that every time they post abuse or threaten violence against those of us standing up to their attempts to bully us into submission, they give us ammunition against them.
And what they’re too stupid to realise about me in particular, is that when they show in no uncertain terms that I’ve managed to rattle their cage – which I do by refusing to stop calling out their abuse and attempts to intimidate me – it gladdens my heart.
As I said in the blog I wrote exposing the searing stupidity of trans activist, Joss Prior, I was surprised that, since having launched this website at the end of 2017, I’d only received one abusive comment through the contacts page and that was from somebody calling himself “Big Frank” and using a fake email address. Continue reading
John Boyne, author of The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas and some other books, is the latest celebrity to have got on the wrong side of the trans cult and has deactivated his Twitter account. Having read the piece he wrote that provoked their ire, I was set to lay into him myself on this blog for some pretty nasty comments he made in it about Graham Linehan. But then I saw that he’d apologised, so I’m going to be a bit gentler. Just a bit.
In a recent article for the Irish Times entitled, Why I support trans rights but reject the word ‘cis’, Boyne tells us why he wrote his latest novel, My Brother’s Name is Jessica. Unsurprisingly, it is a story of a child’s acceptance of his brother, who thinks he was “born in the wrong body”. Also unsurprisingly, it’s already got a one-star review on Amazon by a trans activist, who hasn’t actually read the book because it’s not even out until later this week! (Edit: the one-star review has now been removed).
A year ago I was instructed by District Judge Kenneth Grant to pretend my male assailant was a woman…
There is one reason that trial made headlines and is still talked about to this day. That was District Judge Kenneth Grant’s bias in favour of the defendant – the real one, I mean, not me – reflected most obviously in his decision that I should defer to the wish of this six foot plus, 26-year-old, deluded male and pretend he is a woman. This meant that, while having to relive the assault and give my account of it while watching a recording of it on a screen in front of the court, I was required to refer to him as ‘she’.
They will tell you what to think
They will tell you what to say
They will prescribe your reading
And tell you must pray
And bow down to the gender gods
Policed by local cops
Big Brother’s really watching you
And they will never stop.

I’ve added a new page to this site. On it are the stories I know about where the police have responded inappropriately to what I believe are, in most cases, spurious complaints, whose overriding purpose is to silence disagreement with transgender ideology.
The police are turning into the trans lobby’s goon squad.
