Sneeringly dismissed as a figment of the imagination of hysterical women, Yaniv is the embodiment of feminists’ objections to Self-ID and gender ideology. The nominally progressive Left have been so busy calling women bigots and transphobes, they never stopped to listen to what they were actually saying; that gender ideology is the perfect Trojan horse for predators, paedophiles and grifters.
I don’t think all men are rapists. I don’t think all men are intrinsically violent, creepy or degenerate. God knows I love my dad and my brother and my dear nine year old son. But 98% of sexual violence is committed by men. And there is no way to tell the good ones from the bad ones. There never will be. That’s why we need our spaces and services and boundaries, for our privacy, our dignity and our safety. It’s why we need to preserve the social norms which generally prevent men from entering our spaces and preserve our confidence to challenge men who do so. Bad men will do anything to gain access to women and girls. That’s why every institution in the world attracts those who will use power and access to abuse us. If they do it in schools, the care system, churches and families then they will sure as hell do it in prisons, toilets, refuges and changing rooms. They already are.
In terms of protecting females from a significant minority of dangerous males, these reasons don’t cease to operate when males self-identify as women. And self-identification removes any gatekeeping, safeguarding or requirement for any man to do anything other than complete a cursory administrative process via an online form.
I’m truly sorry for any man who feels imprisoned and tortured by masculinity. But that is something for men to deconstruct, to dismantle and to overthrow. And there are men doing it. There are transsexuals and cross dressers and allies against the male stereotypes which damage everyone. But it is not the moral duty of women to facilitate that. If your feminism prioritises the internal identifications of men over the material conditions of women then you are not a feminist. In a world of structural and systematic oppression, and an epidemic of male violence, we owe it to women and to the legacy of every feminist who has fought before us, to stand for ourselves.
Parliament doesn’t raise the red flag on Labour Day or the women’s liberation flag on March 8th, yet they are expected to raise the Pride flag during Pride month. Pride now appears to be more celebrated than any other political movement. Over the years, this attention — from corporations, politicians, and public institutions — has given the Pride organizations enormous power. Pride has become big business.
This might be seen as cause to celebrate, but while Pride may have begun as a human rights movement for lesbians and gay men — something I and most others support — it has developed into something entirely different.
Not only has Pride rejected sexual dimorphism, biology, and anatomy as essential in defining biological sex, in its support for “trans rights,” it has adopted many controversial positions, including legalization of the sex industry and the surrogacy industry; the promotion of BDSM as a sexual orientation, rather than a fetish; and advocating to prescribe puberty blockers to youth identified as “trans” who are as young as 12 years old.
What other controversial political lobby groups been given access to schools in order to teach children their ideologies? If all political groups and lobbyists were given this kind of access, we would likely view it as a situation where children are being exposed to propaganda instead of knowledge. But when it comes to LGBT, everyone is expected to be on board.
PUBLIC policy in Scotland has been “captured” by lobbyists for transgender rights, academics have claimed, leaving the rights of other groups, especially women and girls at risk.
Paediatricians are to investigate the controversial drug therapies used to halt the puberty of children who want to change gender.
The Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health has asked its committee of experts to look at the ethics around the rapid increase in the use of hormone blockers to treat under-16s who identify as transgender.
It is the first time the issue has been formally addressed by the ethics and law advisory committee of the Royal College, which sets professional standards.
The event, which was proposed by controversial B.C. Human Rights Tribunal complainant Jessica Yaniv, formerly known as Jonathan Yaniv, would allow the youth to be “topless (at their leisure), in compliance with the laws of Canada” and would prohibit parents and caretakers from attending.
“Caretakers will be prohibited from attending these events as it’s considered safe and inclusive,” wrote Yaniv to council.
Yaniv is not one to shy away from the spotlight.
She is also running (and fundraising) for 2019 Miss BC.
“Being part of the LGBTQQIP2SAA (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, intersex, pansexual, 2-spirited, asexual, and allies community), it’s important to take a stand for equality and human rights,” wrote Yaniv on her online fundraiser.
Why is anti-feminism always assumed to be a domain of the Right? Clearly, the far-Right hates feminism, because its members hate women and consider us inferior and good for nothing but breeding, cleaning and sex, but most young people in the UK today are on the Left. How then, is the current wave of mainstream misogyny being fed by the alt-Right?
I would wager that a hatred of feminists in the current climate is being fuelled by leftist men who claim to be “on the right side of history” but are, in fact, misogynists dressed up as progressives.
There is a war against feminists in the UK, and the so-called progressives are the ones throwing the grenades.
I have been told by women from a range of backgrounds and circumstances that they feel under pressure to sign up to fun feminism, support “sex work”, stripping, porn, and to chant the mantra, “trans women are women!” They are being groomed into hating actual feminism, and adopting a faux-version that does not challenge men at all.
Male Left-wing misogynists who hate feminism are too cowardly and inadequate to be open about it, and would rather rebrand feminism to suit them.
Men on the Right are not, in my view, ever going to be feminist allies, but nothing is as pernicious as a sheep in woke clothing.
Aimee Challenor, former spokesperson for the UK Green Party and current Diversity Officer for the Coventry Liberal Democrats is about to marry a gentleman from Michigan who writes pornographic fiction about children and “mind control.”
Aimee Challenor is still — still — on the trans advisory board at Stonewall, an influential charity which advises many organizations with responsibilities for children, including the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC).
Despite the fact that Challenor’s father was charged for an unspeakably dreadful and depraved crime, Aimee continued to use him as an election agent. David Challenor is currently serving a 20+ year sentence for raping and torturing a 10-year-old girl in the attic of the family home.
As social workers often point out, it only takes a few people to groom an organization — or, in this case, a whole movement — and people like David Challenor see the destruction of safeguarding norms as a way to normalize sexual practices and exploitation of children that would ordinarily attract a criminal sanction.
- Dr Kirsty Entwistle is the first whistleblower to go public and be named over her concerns regarding treatment of children by NHS gender clinics
- She claims that vulnerable children being referred to Britain’s only NHS gender clinic for under-18s include those with mental health problems
- Dr Entwistle is one of growing number of staff from child Gender Identity Development Service (GIDS) to criticise clinic’s practices
- Latest figures from GIDS show 2,590 children were referred last year, compared to less than 100 in 2009
On Tuesday, lesbian feminist Julia Beck, who was kicked off of the Baltimore LGBT Commission because she opposes transgender identity, testified against the federal Equality Act. Her testimony caused quite a stir, with many Democrats expressly asking other witnesses to delegitimize it.
“If the act passes in its current form as H.R. 5, then every right that women have fought for will cease to exist,” Beck warned. “H.R. 5 is a human rights violation. Every single person in this country will lose their right to single-sex sports, shelters, grants, and loans. The law will forbid ever distinguishing between women and men.”
Indeed, biological sex traces back to the cellular level. In each human being’s DNA there are either two X chromosomes or one X chromosome and one Y chromosome. In the vast majority of cases, XX humans develop as female and XY humans develop as male. In a few tragic instances, genitals fail to develop or other abnormalities take place, creating intersex people. This is far different from transgender people, who are healthy males who identify as women or healthy females who identify as men.
Transgender identity is impossible to prove, but doctors can diagnose gender dysphoria (the persistent identifying with the gender opposite one’s biological sex). People suffering from this condition should be treated with respect, but Americans should be able to disagree on whether or not transgender identity is the solution to this condition.
