Fighting Back

Every page of this site contains links to articles or videos created by people fighting back against the absurdity of gender ideology and the deeply sinister attempts to impose it on people in every sphere of life and in a manner that brooks no opposition. But as grassroots resistance to that ideology in general and to gender self-declaration in particular is increasing, it’s time to have a page for news and information about specific actions taken by those resisting. Information about the GRA and how to oppose the proposed reforms is on this page of this site, while lesbian protests at the Pride can be found here.

 

Women’s Human Rights Campaign: Declaration on Women’s Sex-Based Rights

Launched in March 2019, this document has been put together to counter any move by the UN to change sex to gender in UN Law. Read all about it here and please sign and help to spread the word.

Leeds Councillor Sarah Field’s speech should be read by everyone who purports to care about women

Sarah’s opening address at the Declaration on Women’s Sex-Based Rights event at Leeds Civic Hall recently starts like this:

“About three years ago, not long after I was first elected, I was contacted by a woman in Leeds, for advice. Her six-year-old daughter had been verbally attacked and then subjected to a violent outburst by a 17-year-old male who had been allowed to join a local girls group as a helper. This was because he said he identified as a female. What had this child done? She had asked him if he was a boy. And then this six-year-old girl had been made to stand alone in front of the entire group and apologise to him.”

and finishes like this:

“If your feminism prioritises the internal identifications of men over the material conditions of women then you are not a feminist. In a world of structural and systematic oppression, and an epidemic of male violence, we owe it to women and to the legacy of every feminist who has fought before us, to stand for ourselves.”

No wonder the Men’s Rights Activists of Leeds tried to incite intimidation and violence against attendees as they left but how dare they call themselves “anti-fascists”!

Women will not submit

A man can never be a woman. A lesbian can never have a penis. I am Maria from London. I will not be forced to lie and I will not submit! Video taken after the Lesbians on Chairs event. Sorry I couldn’t be there.

Help Maya Forstater take her ex-employer to an employment tribunal

Maya was fired from The Center for Global Development in London because she expressed her gender critical views on Twitter. She is now crowd-funding to pay for legal representation in the hope of establishing that gender critical beliefs are protected under the Equality Act 2010. At a time when people are in fear of losing their jobs due to trans cult bullying, this would establish beyond doubt our rights to express our legitimate, scientifically-supported views and have a massive postive impact on people’s confidence to do so.

Andrew Gilligan covers the story in today’s Times but it’s well worth reading the long story, written by Maya herself: I lost my job for speaking up about women’s rights.

Don’t be a little shit like the Labour Party Students’ Women’s Officer Lily Madigan!

What are real girls made of?

If men want to ponce about in lacy knickers, who gives a toss…? Just don’t claim to be women!

A few days prior to GI Collection’s London launch of Carmen Liu Lingerie – said to be the UK’s first brand of lingerie for autogynephiles – they tweeted that “trans girls are real girls”. And what real girls need, obviously, are knickers that are “delicate, feminine and sexy” while still able to accommodate a large erectile protruberance plus oval-shaped sperm producing organs. Sticky “lingerie tape” is also helpfully sold by the company.

The degrading representation of women – sorry, girls – as sex objects promoted by Carmen Liu is offensive enough to feminists. Even worse is the normalising of the preposterous notion that men can actually be women. As the enchanting Desiree La Spud from the campaigning group, Standing for Women, told reporters, “the normalisation of transgenderism by events such as this one is causing massive problems for women”. She mentioned women’s sports with men competing as and beating women because “people are too scared to point out that they’re men” and being accommodated in women’s prisons and other spaces where they are sexually assaulting women.

Desiree was the organiser of a picket by feminists outside the launch event for the lingerie line on 28th February. What fun we had! A big thank you to Prick News for the publicity, even if their reporter did shamefully deadname Desiree as the courageous Women’s Rights Activist, Dr Julia Long.

There’s only one Posie Parker!

Only one worth talking about anyway. Kellie-Jay Minshull aka the Posie Parker has been a tireless campaigner for the apparently highly controversial idea that a woman is an adult human female. She has also successfully drawn out the ugliest side of the #transcult, who have victimised her relentlessly and got her permanently banned from Twitter.

She raised £700 for a large poster giving the dictionary definition of ‘woman’ to be displayed on a billboard in Liverpool during the week of the Labour Party conference in September 2018. Thanks to complaints by trans activist bully Dr Adrian Harrop and others, the billboard company meekly caved in and removed it, thereby achieving far more publicity for Kellie-Jay and her poster than she could otherwise have dreamed of. She’s been on TV, she’s been on radio and, of course, achieved national press coverage. She told a meeting in Manchester that she’d been inundated with orders for the T-shirt she’s wearing in this Sky News clip, where she wipes the floor with Harrop.

Get the T-shirt!

Now you too can be a proud wearer of the stylish, educational and surprisingly provocative T-shirt. Order it and other cool merchandise from the Standing For Women shop. Hurry while stocks last!

TRAs keep trying and failing to silence her!

Here is some of the coverage after the poster in Liverpool was removed:

Cambridge student stages silent protest

 

This is Jay Man, a student at Cambridge University, who has been dressing as a handmaid and staging silent protests in Cambridge. Follow Jay on Twitter.

Jay tweeted: “My message ‘acknowledging biological sex is NOT hate speech’ and the ‘woman:noun’ separate protest – described as ‘anti-transgender’, ‘discriminatory and unacceptable’, ‘disrespect’, and King’s students are ‘putting all our power into solving this issue’.”

This is the story she’s referring to: King’s College Council votes not to fly transgender flag Varsity 23.02.19

#StickerWoman

The reaction to the stickers appearing all over the place just now blows my mind. Pointing out a basic biological fact is apparently “hatred”.  I could write a lot more but the articles I would like to have written have already been done. Here they are:

#ManFriday

The spring of 2018 saw the emergence of the magnificent Man Friday campaign, in which women declared themselves men for the day and carried out random acts of manliness as a publicity-grabbing way to highlight our objections to the proposed “reforms” to the Gender Recognition Act, intending to allow self-declaration of Gender.

Being women, they of course stop well short of the violence promoted by countless members by the trans cult, who “celebrated” Pride month by exhorting their Twitter followers to “punch a TERF” – and worse – every single day. I doubt I am the only one to have lost count of how many such tweets I reported. Some of them still get off on posting stuff like that, being the brave warrior “women” that they are.

Here is an explanation posted by Hannah Clarke on Twitter.

Umm…who is inciting violence??

A constant refrain about GRC reform is that feminists have got it wrong and that it’s just admin. @fairplaywomen explains why “just admin” has serious implications for women but I want to talk about #manfriday and how self ID impacts the real world.

We know the Equality Act 2010 allows people protection under gender reassignment and that gender reassignment is from when someone is proposing to undergo any process…but that’s not what we’re protesting against.

SwimEngland, Caledonian Sleeper, High Street shops, Hampstead Ponds and many other service providers have set out guidance saying anyone who says they are a woman can access women’s facilities. This is not the same as being protected under gender reassignment in EA2010.

Of course as @ManFRIDAY_ discovered this only works one way at Hampstead Ponds as women claiming to be men are escorted off the premises by the police. So whilst we are fighting #selfID in law we are also having to fight the interesting interpretation of it in practice. The interpretation that makes all women’s spaces mixed sex by stealth. This impacts every woman who uses any public women’s space. And this has all come about because trans lobby groups have “advised” service providers, and women’s needs have been put second to men’s wants (as it ever was). We need to push back against this.

So we haven’t got it wrong. We are fighting what is happening in our changing rooms, our loos, our hospital wards and children’s schools. When you dismiss us as “wrong” you are clearly showing your male behaviour in dismissing “silly women”. And that is why we must keep fighting. We fight for the safety, privacy and dignity of women and girls in the face of your dishonest lobbying and underhand dismissal of us. #manfriday will not go away, especially not as a result of you sneering and calling us TERFs.
