This is the title of a piece posted on Medium.com by trans activist Joss Prior last week. From the title you’d be forgiven for thinking that it is an explanation of trans rights for people who are confused and bewildered.
You’d be wrong.
Anyone who is genuinely confused and bewildered about this topic is unlikely to make it past the excruciating introduction, in which Joss Prior is at pains to sacrifice clarity, basic grammar and – as always – truthfulness in favour of trying to entertain other trans activists who are every bit as dim as Joss Prior.
In the entirety of the piece, trans rights as such are barely touched on. Instead we are treated to a hotchpotch of trans-related questions followed by what are presumably Joss Prior’s idea of slam dunk replies.
I think it’s fairly well-established now that transgender ideology is based on unsupportable tenets and that those promoting it cannot put a coherent argument together. Instead, they rely on misrepresenting the position of their opponents and labelling us in a manner intended to, at best, dismiss our arguments as unworthy of consideration, at worst, mark us out as legitimate targets for intimidation and violence.
Encouragingly, I’m meeting more and more transgender people who are reasonable, who can empathise with us, who are capable of remaining civil in disagreement and who are brave enough to put their heads above the parapet. Others – and their allies – comprise what I call the ‘trans cult’ and they seem to be the dumbest people alive. Or the most dishonest. Or both.
This is the post in which I express my anger against those young women who’ve betrayed the goal of women’s liberation by promoting male entitlement and female erasure. And, no, contrary to what certain trans activists such as Stephen Whittle say, the term ‘handmaidens’ isn’t misogynist. Misogyny refers to contempt and disregard for women because they are women, i.e. adult human female. It doesn’t include the disdain we feel for women who are selling us down the river, the women who prioritise the feelings of men over the psychological well-being and the physical safety of women. The true meaning of ‘handmaiden’ is female servant and that, in effect, is what these women are. Continue reading
The First Day: 12th April 2018
I was assaulted by Tara Wolf (aka Tara Flik Wood aka Flik Reade) because I was a dangerous “trans exterminatory radical feminist” and he just knew I was going to post footage online outing trans people so that they can be targeted by “exterminationists”. This is what he told District Judge Kenneth Grant, who was presiding over Wolf’s trial at Hendon Magistrate’s Court last month.
Having given my own testimony earlier in the day and now watching from the public gallery, this was the first time I’d seen any explanation from him for what he did to me but it was not the first sign of his rank stupidity and nor would it be the last.
Before he started his testimony we had sat watching in bemusement at his attempt to navigate the simple task of taking the oath. I’d expected him to affirm as I’d done. Instead, he spent ages staring gormlessly at the different books on the stand in front of him, as if trying to decide which colour he liked best. He eventually plumped for a nice dark blue Holy Bible, indicating he’d decided to identify as a Christian for the occasion. Or maybe he really does follow Jesus Christ, his Lord and Saviour. Who knew?
Welcome to my blog at Peakers’ Corner. For my first post, I am simply copying and pasting from my Skepticat_UK blog my account of the incident that started it all. It was originally published on 27 September 2017.
It’s been a couple of years since I last felt compelled to add to this blog but that has changed in the fortnight since I was a victim of assault, criminal damage and theft at Speakers’ Corner on Wednesday, 13 September. That corner of Hyde Park is, of course, historically associated with free speech. The irony that I was assaulted for filming a group of people trying hard to close down the free speech of others isn’t lost on many who’ve commented already on the incident. You’ll find a list of blogs and articles at the bottom. Continue reading
