A conservative campaigner against trans players in female sport says she feels vindicated after an AVO taken against her by police on behalf of a Sydney transwoman soccer player was withdrawn in court.
Eli Rubashkyn poured juice on British activist Kellie-Jay Keen-Minshull – also known as Posie Parker – at a speaking event in Auckland on March 25.
Keen-Minshull abandoned the event following the incident and left the country that evening. She has since said she won’t return to Aotearoa.
On Wednesday, their lawyer James Olsen asked Judge Claire Ryan to dismiss the charge relating to Parker. Judge Ryan reserved her decision until October 26.
Mann disagreed and said the prosecution could still proceed without the complainant’s statement or presence at any trial and there was genuine public interest in this case.
Rubashkyn is a qualified pharmacist and researcher and an advocate for intersex and gender issues at the United Nations.
Rubashkyn was raised as a boy before being given access to hormones as an adult, having gender-affirming surgery in 2022.
Last month, a 21-year-old man admitted hitting an elderly woman at Parker’s event. He was a counter-protester at the event.
Bonuses and pay rises could be withheld from employees and managers behaving poorly as part of an armoury of tactics bosses can use to prevent workplace sexual harassment and discrimination under landmark new workplace laws.From December, employers must act on a positive duty to stamp out sexual assault, harassment and similar discriminatory behaviour – or risk being named and shamed – as part of changes recommended by former sex discrimination commissioner Kate Jenkins’ landmark Respect@Work report.
Heather Herbert shared the image of herself(sic) lying on the floor at Gatwick Airport.
Ms Herbert was a Labour member who stood for the party and voted for Scottish Independence but has now joined the Greens, claiming Sir Keir Starmer‘s Party took ‘no interest’ in tackling transphobia among members.
She posted an image of herself lying on the floor of a disabled loo at Gatwick doing ‘dilation’ exercises, which doctors say need to be done daily to promote healing. She said: ‘Found a disabled toilet… not the most fun I’ve had.’
Earlier she had tweeted: ‘Dilation, day two, let’s play. Where in an airport can I locate a clean, dry, private place I can lie down, take my knickers off and spread my legs?’
The body initially treats the vaginoplasty like a wound, meaning that dilation must be performed by the patient so the new vagina does not close up.
Daily dilation ends after week 12 in some cases. Other doctors recommend daily dilation for the rest of the patient’s life.

Two “gender critical” events in San Francisco were stormed by Antifa this weekend, where trans activists showed up with signs threatening to murder women critical of gender ideology. At one conference held at a Hilton hotel, an employee was assaulted while trying to prevent damage to the property.
Approximately 100 members of the US chapter of Women’s Declaration International (WDI), a global group of volunteers who campaign for women and girls’ sex-based rights, were in attendance for the conference, held on Saturday at the Hilton.
Slogans such as “Arm trans women, disarm cops,” and “Dykes hate TERFs,” were seen plastered on the Hilton signage and in surrounding areas, as well as stickers featuring the Antifa logo.
But the trans activist detractors didn’t stop at vandalism, and continued to escalate the situation by taking a hammer to the Hilton’s outdoor sign.
Dansky explained to Reduxx that a hotel manager saw the destruction, and attempted to intervene to prevent further damage. In response, one of the protestors physically assaulted him, reportedly punching the staff member in the head.
A third of transgender children on puberty blockers suffered mental health problems, a reanalysis of a major study has suggested.
In 2011, a team from University College London Hospitals (UCLH) and the Tavistock’s Gender Identity Development Service – the only NHS specialist gender clinic for children in the UK – embarked on what became known as the Early Intervention Study.
It analysed 44 children between the ages of 12 and 15 undergoing treatment with puberty blockers and concluded “no changes in psychological function” of the children.
However, a new analysis of the original study’s data reveal that 34 per cent of young people “reliably deteriorated” in terms of their mental health, while 29 per cent “reliably improved” 12 months after taking puberty blockers. A further 37 per cent showed no change.
Former child abuse royal commissioner Robert Fitzgerald and top domestic violence campaigners have accused the federal government of putting vested interests ahead of child safety by ignoring advice to trial an Australian porn passport.
A man in Spain convicted of violent crimes against two women has changed his name and sex marker in an apparent bid to seek clemency from the government on the basis of his newfound gender identity.
Both women have described Antonio as a “psychopath, manipulative, and very intelligent.” They have described their abuse as having been physical, psychological, and verbal.
Within months of the legislation’s passing, multiple cases have already emerged out of Spain in which violent males have taken to changing their names and gender markers in an effort to get preferential treatment by the justice system.
Last fall, a man who beat his female partner for opposing his transition successfully avoided charges of sex-based violence by legally changing his identification to “female” and adopting a woman’s name. Núria González López, the legal advisor for the victim, told Reduxx at the time: “Women’s safety appears to be less important than men’s feelings.”
In July, a sadistic man who bludgeoned his cousin to death before sexually desecrating her corpse requested transfer to a women’s prison after altering his identification and claiming to be female. Lorena Robaina, formerly known as Jonathan de Jesús, is currently serving 38 years in prison for the sick crime.
Most recently, it was revealed that a violent male convict who was transferred to a women’s prison after claiming to be transgender had reportedly impregnated a female inmate at the Alicante Cumplimiento Penitentiary Center in the Fontcalent region. The inmate was originally detained in the men’s ward of the Alicante prison for repeated violent criminal convictions, including kidnapping and robbery.
Women protesting the placement of trans-identified males in women’s prisons were met with violence from trans activists yesterday at the Alameda County Courthouse in Oakland, California.
Led by author and women’s rights advocate Kara Dansky, the small group peacefully began their protest on the steps of the courthouse, with the women carrying banners which read “No Men in Women’s Prisons” and “Dana Rivers is a Man.” Some of the demonstrators gave speeches on the importance of keeping prisons sex-segregated for the safety and dignity of female inmates.
The women, most of whom were advocates with Women’s Declaration International USA, had gathered specifically to voice opposition to the possibility that biologically male convicted murderer Dana Rivers may be housed in a women’s prison.
Speaking to Reduxx, Women’s Liberation Front founder Lierre Keith says the protest had initially been off to a good start — with members of the public expressing support for the women’s signage. But after the group moved their demonstration to the sidewalk across from the courthouse, black-clad trans activists ambushed them.
“One man rammed into Kara with an umbrella. Others attacked us by slamming things into our faces and heads. Kara also got eggs smashed into her head and body. There’s a photo of actual blood behind her ear from the force.”
“It was over really quickly. These things are a blur in the moment. Another man came at us from the other side on a bicycle, trying to knock women down or scare us. He came very close to seriously injuring women.”
The words ‘women,’ ‘girls’ and ‘females’ should be removed from online articles about periods to avoid offending transgender people, a sanitary pad manufacturer is said to have told a website.
The firm Always reportedly issued the edict to the parenting site Good To Know to make content it sponsored ‘inclusive’.
Writer Milli Hill told The Mail on Sunday she was ‘outraged’ when the website changed all mentions of women or girls in her contribution to a recent article about helping teens with their first periods.
