Improving Rachel McKinnon’s Wikipedia page

On a day when people are lamenting the “rescheduling” – reportedly due to lack of ticket sales – of Rachel McKinnon’s eagerly anticipated talk, which was due to take place in London soon, I’d like to continue milking my attempt to improve McKinnon’s Wikipedia page, the result of which can be seen here.

It has brought even more joy to people than I anticipated. I’m also a bit surprised at the lack of knowledge about Wikipedia in some of the responses I got. I’d like to address these for anyone wishing to pull a similar stunt – quite a number of people say they are inspired by my work.

I want to say first of all that when I edited the page I did so in the full knowledge that the edits would be reversed in minutes, if not seconds. People were disappointed when they looked at the page hours later and declared my amendments had “gone already!” No, they are far more efficient than that.

Guest blog: A lot can happen in a year!

My thanks to the awesome Liverpool ReSisters for permission to reproduce their recent Twitter thread here.

This month marks a year since Liverpool Resisters’ #stickerwoman action which started a curious chain of events which made international news, raised awareness, recruited countless women, and exposed @lpoolcouncil as misogynist charlatans.

In the context of a badly run Government consultation into gender self-id, a policy which would have huge implications for women, women’s voices were shut out by the establishment. Feminists were harassed and abused. The public had no idea what the government was planning.

As part of a national grassroots campaign, a small act of resistance took place. A tiny be-penised sticker, stuck to a statue on Crosby beach, stating a biological truth “Women Don’t Have Penises.” A short, common sense statement designed to get people to start asking questions.

The wokerati and big wigs of Liverpool were up in arms, virtue signalling and out-outraging each other about this “hate crime” whilst remaining strangely silent about – and even supporting – TRA abuse, vandalism and intimidation of women on their own doorstep.

Mayor Anderson embarrassed himself, egged on by a notoriously misogynist “doctor” and was exposed as being completely ignorant of the issues at hand. He took personal offence at being held to account on social media for which he would seek his revenge (on women).

A self-proclaimed “baby of the chamber” declared on behalf of the people of Liverpool that “trans women are women” and that unisex toilets should be introduced. He stopped short of calling for all biology books and dictionaries in the city to be burned.

Every councillor was made aware of the wider implications of self-id as well as the increased risk of sexual violence and voyeurism to women and girls from unisex facilities. In a huge “fuck you” to the women of Liverpool, they voted for it anyway, with no consultation.

The Mayor paraded his arrogance in the council chamber. Misogyny dripped from every pore on his bloated, purple face as he shouted at and abused a lone woman who spoke up for women and children. Cheered on by lackeys who are *paid* to represent the people (not the trans lobby).

There is not one solitary councillor in Liverpool who is willing to stand up for women’s rights, or our ability to have a say in matters that concern us. For the safety and well-being of children. For freedom of speech or debate. For truth.

Every single one of them knows what a woman is. Every single one of them voted through a motion which lies and has implications for all of us. How can they be trusted with any other issue?

So, where are we now?

The public are waking up to the realities of trans activism – the regressive stereotypes, the safety implications, the misogyny and totalitarianism which seeks to silence women by any means necessary.
Far too many men fighting to remove women’s safe spaces have been exposed as sexual predators and paedophiles. Women and girls are losing out on sporting opportunities. Detransitioners are increasingly speaking up.

Women have been proved right with all of our concerns.


Yet our supposed “elected representatives” still aren’t listening.

Anderson inadvertently became our greatest recruiting tool, as so many women were furious with his behaviour. Our membership has multiplied.

And Resisters groups have sprung up across the country.

We are not going away, our movement grows stronger.

Oh, and…

WOMEN *STILL* DON’T HAVE PENISES!

How transphobic is the Guardian newspaper?

Some astonishing news emerged last week about the newspaper referred to in some feminist circles as the “Trans Times” but which is better known as the Guardian. It turns out that, far from being a paper that panders to transgender ideology and ignores feminist concerns about it, the Guardian is actually “an incredibly transphobic organisation” that is harming trans people.

At least, that’s what a former employee of the paper claimed to Buzzfeed LGBT editor, Patrick Strudwick.

I’ve said before that I don’t think Strudwick is the best journalist in the world but his recent piece entitled, The Guardian Newspaper Has Lost Two Trans Employees Over Its Reporting On Trans Issues, helpfully brings us another example of what I described in a previous post as the “sheer dishonesty as well as the cultish thinking of trans activists”.

The ex-employee – who is transgender and referred to as “Victoria” – claims that the Guardian is both transphobic in its reporting and guilty of “allowing a bitter schism to develop between pro- and anti-trans journalists”.
