Hardly a church is it (or as its witches the right word would be “coven”. It’s clearly a political / campaigning organisation and the language is designed to discriminate against transpeople.
Wow! Cathy Brennan telling others not to be nasty on the internet! To quite Paddy McGuiness, “let the pot, meet the kettle”
And I’ve used the female loos and changing facilities since 1999 with little or no issue. The only problems I’ve ever had have come as a result of ignorance.
For three years Now I’ve been involved in the debate between the radical / gender critical feminists and the trans community over the right who should enter women’s spaces. Involved in that debate has also seen gender critical trans identifying males have a voice!
Here I want to talk about the roll of the gender critical trans community some of whom are post op and there’s some like myself who aren’t considering surgery and some who are!
Speaking for myself I admit I’m male. I pull no punches about that. Since coming out on what is considered the trans community I have been on a roller coaster ride of emotions. In the beginning I was lost on the issue but commonsense soon prevailed and here I am today being brutally honest!
I have no reason to enter any female spaces unless it is to save a life or help evacuate…

Gay Drag Performer Ejected From Philly Fundraiser Because His Appearance Made Straight Male “Uncomfortable”
Oh way to completely twist things.
If a black employee complained that someone was performing in “blackface” at their place of work, would you complain as much as you are in this situation? I’m betting not.
As for what happened, I can only go on how it’s been reported here so, get over yourself! It’s a drag act for god’s sake. Drag queens have the most vicious tongues, catty / bitchy etc, but it’s a persona, an act, it’s to entertain. If you felt that uncomfortable about it you could have taken the night off.
Talk about mountain out of a molehill!
According to the calendar on my iPhone, it’s currently the year 2018, although if you take a walk round a lot of towns and cities in the UK, you’d be forgiven for thinking Queen Victoria was still on the throne.
People sleeping rough on the streets used to really only be something you’d see in big cities like London, Manchester, Birmingham etc. Now it seems like every town has people without homes, sleeping rough on our streets.
It struck me speaking with someone tonight that the solution is staring us in the face, a short term solution at least. 2 years ago, BHS went bump, and a lot of those massive shops are still empty. Woolworths went bump ten years ago, and there’s still some of them lying empty and neglected, and with the size of these ex retail premises, no business in the internet shopping age needs that kind of space anymore, so, buy or rent these buildings. Deck them out as homeless shelters, bedsits, flats, etc, so that homeless people aren’t left sleeping on the streets, and can get some order in their lives. If we can spend 30 million on a royal wedding, however many billion renewing a nuclear weapons system that none of actually want to be used, when a government can bribe another political party to support them in government, then I’m sure we can find the money somewhere, to help the most vulnerable people in our society.
GenderQuake Debate video – Due to copyright issues, this video may not be viewable in certain parts of the UK, but, if you are in the UK, you can view the whole debate on Channel 4’s ALL4 service by clicking here. Channel 4 don’t tend to remove content from their on-demand service, but I’d still recommend viewing it asap if you want to.
They don’t start proper till about 15 minutes in, the usual conference / debate delays etc. Can’t watch anymore as the camera phone seems to keep focussing and refocusing and it’s going to give me a headache before long. Apparently there are masked protesters outside and 7 police officers. The right to protest is just as valid as the right to free speech (although it should be noted that free speech isn’t guaranteed in the UK lols it is the USA for example, just one of those things that people assume they have but was never actually put into law I think). If it wasn’t for protests, peaceful or not, women would never have gotten the vote, or any of the rights since. The suffragettes were vilified in their time, now we see them as heroic.
