Blog: Another feminist voice silenced on Twitter

This time it’s mine. A scarily obsessive hate campaign against me by a disgusting and apparently very disturbed individual called Jacob (Jake) Alley, whom I blogged about previously, has culminated in my permanent suspension. How do I feel? Totally unsurprised as, having seen one feminist or sympathiser after another get banned for challenging transgender ideology and the bullies who promote it, I knew it was on the cards. Every time I’ve dived into that cesspit of misogyny recently, I’ve half-expected it to be my last. Naturally, I’m honoured to be in the company of the likes of Meghan Murphy, Kellie-Jay Minshull, Venice Allan, Miranda Yardley and many others who are hated by the trans cult because we can’t be beaten through reasoned debate.

The latter isn’t something I generally do myself. People are entitled to change their names to whatever they like and, so far, I’ve revealed (but not used) the birth name of only one of the many people who’ve targeted me online. That person being the one who goes by the name of ‘Elise Hendrick’, whom I also blogged about previously and who I believe – as I believe of Jake Alley may be a dangerous psychopath or sociopath or maybe some other kind of ‘-path’. Since blogging about this monstrous individual, I’ve had several strangers contact me with more information, which has only served to confirm my impression: vicious nutter, steer well clear. I regard the fact that, after I blogged about Hendrick, he made his tweets private, with considerable satisfaction. Continue reading
