Victorian Women’s Guild – Threats to Lesbians by Chris Sitka

We are very concerned about the dangers to lesbians resulting from the advance of Trans Rights Activism (TRA) and the rapid, unquestioning adoption of trans perspectives by governments, institutions and community organisations. Not only are our rights to be lesbian, and to congregate as lesbians, being eroded there are even moves to completely erase lesbianism as a sexuality!

Prisons must be single-sex spaces | Joan Smith | The Critic Magazine

The tiny female prison population, which makes up only five per cent of the total, differs radically from the male estate. Women are overwhelmingly incarcerated for non-violent crimes such as fraud, theft or failing to pay fines. They arrive in prison with higher levels of mental illness and physical disability, problems with drugs and alcohol, and anxieties about housing and children. They are more than twice as likely to self-harm and most have suffered domestic abuse.

What they are not, or only very rarely, is sex offenders; men are responsible for 98 per cent of sex offences, according to the Ministry of Justice. When the two prison populations display such widely different patterns of offending, it is hard to see why members of the sex that commits the vast majority of sex crimes should be locked up with women who are principally victims of male violence. But peers who spoke against Blencathra’s amendment seemed far more concerned with the rights of trans-identified prisoners than the female inmates forced to share bathrooms with them.

A Green peer, Baroness Jones, expressed her annoyance that “the majority of speakers have been male, and they have spoken against the amendment”. She said she supported her party’s policy that trans women are women but pointed out that “there are occasions when women in women’s prisons experience sexual predation by men who have falsely identified as trans”. To no avail: in the face of so much opposition, Lord Blencathra’s amendment was withdrawn, and the stealthy replacement of women’s prisons with mixed-sex establishments continues apace.

UK: Trans-Identified Male SPARED JAIL for Toddler Sex Abuse Images

A man who identifies as a woman has been spared a jail sentence despite being convicted of being in possession of sadistic child pornography.

Louise Foord, born Lewis, was apprehended at his home in Colchester after a breach of a protection order related to a previous sex attack he committed in 2019. The order required Foord, 21, to register all social media accounts, names, and banking information with police so they could keep tabs on his behavior.

In the United Kingdom, a suspended sentence means the offender avoids jail completely, and instead spends their time in the community during which they are expected to not commit another offence.

In 2019, Foord was sentenced to 22 months for imprisoning a woman in his home and sexually assaulting her. Foord was 19 years old at the time, and identified as male.

Trans ideology is distorting the training of America’s doctors | The Economist

Professional bodies, including the American Academy of Paediatrics, have endorsed “gender-affirmative” care, which accepts patients’ self-diagnosis that they are trans. This can mean the prescription of puberty blockers for children as young as nine. Trans medicine is not a core part of medical schools’ curriculums. But an academic paediatrician (who did not want her name, institution or state to appear in this story) says that all medical students understand that they are expected to follow the affirmation model “uncritically and unquestioningly”. For most doctors that will mean referring a patient to a gender clinic, some of which prescribe blockers or cross-sex hormones on a first visit.

Affirmative care has done irreversible harm to some young people’s bodies. This has become especially clear from the experience of “detransitioners” who regret taking hormones or having their breasts or genitals removed. Puberty blockers also prevent bones from developing properly; when combined with cross-sex hormones they can lead to infertility and inability to have an orgasm. A 26-year-old student at a medical school in Florida who plans to become a paediatrician is shocked by what she has not been taught about these treatments. “With other diseases and treatments we are taught in such depth about every possible side-effect,” she says.

Loyalty tests: Calling a deer a horse and a ‘transwoman’ a woman

A true test of loyalty hinges on an invention, a piece of pure fiction. If an issue hasn’t been invented—or distorted beyond recognition—it’s a poor test of loyalty, an experiment contaminated from the start in ways that might skew the results.

There’s a Chinese expression for this: “calling a deer a horse,” derived from a famous 2,000-year-old loyalty test that exposed and thinned the Chinese court and smoothed an Imperial Chancellor’s rise:

Zhao Gao was contemplating treason but was afraid the other officials would not heed his commands, so he decided to test them first. He brought a deer and presented it to the Second Emperor but called it a horse. The Second Emperor laughed and said, “Is the chancellor perhaps mistaken, calling a deer a horse?” Then the emperor questioned those around him. Some remained silent, while some, hoping to ingratiate themselves with Zhao Gao, said it was a horse, and others said it was a deer. Zhao Gao secretly arranged for all those who said it was a deer to be brought before the law and had them executed instantly. Thereafter the officials were all terrified of Zhao Gao. Zhao Gao gained military power as a result of that.

Enforce a line like ‘transwomen are women’ and you’ll learn something about the people who repeat it—or don’t.

‘Transwomen are women’ is the perfect loyalty test because it’s a conclusion not based on observation or inquiry or even just sitting alone in a room thinking your thoughts all the way through to the end. You have to take some other route to reach such an absurd conclusion.

‘Transwomen are women’ exposes both the dissenters and those willing to go along with absurdities, whatever their reasons for doing so—and those private reasons never matter so much as the public willingness to spout and submit to absurdities.

A Week in the War on Women: Monday 3rd January – Sunday 9th January

A former inmate has reported on the numerous sexual assaults perpetrated by trans-identified males at a Washington women’s prison.

In December, Amanda Stulman, the USA Director of Keep Prisons Single Sex, obtained documents via a Freedom of Information request which show that almost half of all trans-identified males in American prisons are convicted sex offenders.

The information revealed that 48.47% of trans-identified male inmates are incarcerated in federal prisons for sex offences, compared to 11.2% of the general male population in federal custody.

And now we hear, unsurprisingly, that President Biden intends to allow male inmates to ‘self identify’ their way into the female estate in any and all federal and state prisons and detention centres.

High Court quashes Johnson & Johnson’s bid to appeal medical negligence class action | Australasian Lawyer

The High Court has dismissed a pharmaceutical giant’s application for special leave to appeal a decision that opened the door for thousands of victims to bring compensation claims.

In November 2019, the Federal Court found that defective pelvic mesh implants manufactured by Johnson & Johnson, which caused debilitating medical complications for more than 11,000 women, were “not fit for purpose” and carried risks that were “known, and not insignificant.”

The implants were used to treat stress urinary incontinence or uterus prolapse after childbirth. The court heard evidence that the products caused several serious complications, including infections, damage to surrounding organs, and chronic pain.

In a decision of 5 November 2021, the High Court dismissed the application, finding no point of law to be challenged and no prospect of success for the pharmaceutical companies.

According to the ABC, Rebecca Jancauskas of Shine Lawyers, who led the 1350-claimant class action, described the High Court’s dismissal as a “huge win”.

“There are over 11,000 Australian women who are now entitled to bring individual claims for compensation and they may be fighting Johnson & Johnson for their compensation for many years to come,” she said.

The Trial Court and Gender Theory| Sync.com | Control Panel

The court’s mandatory course teaches the following:

A person’s sex is “assigned” at birth based on physical characteristics.

A transgender person is a person whose gender identity is different from the sex assigned to that person at birth.

Gender identity is a person’s sincere belief regarding their own gender.

Gender exists on a spectrum. A person’s gender identity could be anything: male, female, a combination of male and female, non-binary, genderqueer, bi-gender, gender fluid or some other undefined category.

Identifying as transgender is not a choice. It is a biological and psychological imperative.

Employees and judges in the trial court may wear pronoun buttons indicating the manner in which they prefer to be called (“he/him/his”, “they/them/theirs”) in order to be inclusive of people who are transgender and “demonstrate respect for each individual’s choice of pronouns.”

The court also provides an interactive chart where employees can answer “Where are you on the spectrum?”

The trial court’s promotion of this new understanding of male and female is gravely problematic.

1. Appearance of Impartiality

While the court’s teachings are in line with state statutes as the Massachusetts legislature is friendly toward the new gender ideology, the area of sex and gender is ripe for litigation. Courts often hear challenges to state statutes and resolve questions concerning their applicability to certain facts. It should go without saying that when the court itself starts teaching the gender dogma, it sacrifices any pretense of adjudicating gender issues objectively.

2. Women

The court system has endorsed an ideology that denies that there is any meaningful difference between females and males who identify as females. Therefore, the interest of men who want to be women take priority over the interest of women.

3. Children

Inundating a child with gender options and gender ideology and asking them “Where do you fit on the gender spectrum? How do you know? Are you sure?” encourages gender dysphoria. That approach is horribly wrong and not in any child’s “best interests.”

4. Truth

Now, in the Massachusetts court system, the arena where truth is paramount, the Court is telling people otherwise. Everyone is instructed to recognize the expression of gender, not the actual biological sex. We are told to pretend that a man who has gender dysphoria actually is a woman and vice versa.

Power

Gender dogma is backed by enormous power and unlimited wealth. Activists treat criticism of gender ideology as a hate crime. They get books banned, opponents fired, professors cancelled, and world-renowned authors harassed. Now, cherished institutions, like the Massachusetts Trial Court, have aligned with today’s powerful in-crowd.

Male Serial Killer Housed At Washington Women’s Prison

A violent male serial killer who murdered three prostituted women is currently being housed at the Washington Correctional Center for Women after securing a transfer under recent self-identification laws. Donna Perry, born Douglas, murdered three prostituted women in a four-month time frame in 1990 – but claimed to have killed nine.

Media reports during Perry’s sentencing uniformly referred to him as a “woman” and by “she/her” pronouns. Some also claimed that males who transition experience a “downturn in violence” after identifying as a woman – a claim that was debunked by a peer-reviewed long-term study published by Swedish researchers in 2011 which found that trans-identified males who underwent a full surgical transition “retained a male pattern regarding criminality.”

In May 2021, a whistleblower at the Washington Corrections Center for Women (WCCW) revealed that Perry had been transferred to the women’s estate, and was just one of over 150 males in line for the same move.
