California governor Gavin Newsom has once again fuelled speculation he might run for president next year after vetoing a controversial bill that would have required courts to consider, when ruling on custody, whether parents would ‘affirm’ the gender identity of their children.
A woman in Germany has been warned by a court after comparing a transgender organization’s recently-adopted mascot and a symbol known to be used by pedophiles. Rona Duwe, a women’s rights campaigner, has received an order from the Higher Regional Court in Cologne barring her from further comparisons.
The butterfly mascot was designed by Andrea Fleßner, a trans-identified male involved in the founding of Fielappers. Fleßner also has a close working relationship with DGTI.
“The butterfly with light blue and pink heart-shaped wings is also known internationally as a symbol for ‘child lover,’” Duwe wrote. “These symbols are used by the US FBI as an identification marker for pederast rings. In addition to adults, Fielappers also advises relatives and parents of ‘trans children’ and offers a brochure.”
Though the Cologne court did agree with Duwe that the symbols bear a resemblance to each other, trans activists and members of the German press have used the ruling to warn those critical of gender ideology against making similar statements.
One of the groups supporting the demonstrations, Parents Rights Coalition of Canada, say they’re not being rallied by any particular organization or entity and characterized the day as potentially “the biggest grassroots movement across Canada” since the Freedom Convoy in Ottawa.
The protests are being promoted under the hashtag and banner #1MillionMarch4Canada with the Toronto event set for Queen’s Park on Wednesday morning.
The anticipated demonstrations arrive after a summer where protests against teaching about sexual orientation and gender identity were prominent at libraries and civic buildings across the country, and court battles over provincial school board policies requiring parents to be informed if children choose to change their preferred pronouns or name in New Brunswick and Saskatchewan.
One of the most prominent groups promoting the events on social media is called Hands Off Our Kids. Their website says their mission is to oppose “government’s forceful promotion of sexual orientation and gender ideology.”
The controversial American transgender spokesperson for Ukraine’s Territorial Defense Forces Sarah Ashton-Cirillo (born Michael Cirillo) has been suspended indefinitely by the Ukrainian military, also pending an investigation.
Senator JD Vance of Ohio has made formal inquiry as to whether Sarah Ashton-Cirillo (born Michael John Cirillo) is being funded by the US government or has ties to the US intelligence community.
Last week a viral video by Ashton-Cirillo saw him declare on behalf of the Territorial Defense Forces of Ukraine that Russia’s “propagandists” will be “hunted down” around the world.
Revealingly, this was said just as an American journalist, Gonzalo Lira, was due in Ukrainian court on vague charges of “justifying Russia’s aggression.” That video sparked frenzy and anger online, given it seemed an open threat to journalists or anyone that doesn’t toe a pro-Ukrainian line on any given issue related to the war.
Responding to an inquiry form Senator JD Vance of Ohio, Sarah Ashton-Cirillo — born Michael John Cirillo — declared that he answers to three people: “my Ukrainian commanders, the Ukrainian people, and the American taxpayer.”
An hour later, Cirillo posted a video backtracking on the previous statement, insisting that the U.S. government is not funding his Ukrainian military media operation overseas.
Vance later gave some apt and appropriate comments to Breitbart News, saying: “If the Ukrainians want to hire weirdos to threaten Americans and others for speaking their mind, I guess that’s their right. They shouldn’t use our tax dollars to do it.”
He continued: “And we shouldn’t pretend this is a war for freedom when our supposed ally is threatening violence to anyone who opposes the war.”
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.
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.
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.”
