Fists, lies and videotapes

2 videos, please watch both in order

Video 1

Video 2

Now if you’ve watched both in the order I asked, in the first one at a “Woman’s Place UK” meeting, Linda Belos denies saying the thing she said in the second video.

So, Linda, what is it you actually said?

My rules for dating apps

While I’m lay here trying to get to sleep before I start my new job in the morning, I was swiping left and right in a dating app I’m a member off.

She looks nice, she looks nice, not keen on her, she lives too far away, she’s never that age!

I’ve learnt to have some simple rules on clicking the like or dislike button. If you’re in a similar situation, I’d recommend making a few of your own too, but here’s mine in no particular order.

1. They have to have more than 1 photo of them.

2. They should live within a reasonable distance of me.

3. I have to find something attractive in them, be it looks, personality, sense of humour etc.

4. They should say something about themselves in their profile, and not just leave it blank.

You might think I’m being awkward or picky, and maybe I am, but I’ve learnt the hard way that you can’t always trust what you see online. I’d been chatting with a woman on an app for a few weeks getting to know each other, when it came to swapping telephone numbers. A few minutes later I received a call from a number I recognised as hers and with my heart in my mouth, picked up the phone to answer and said hello.

The voice at the other end of the line wasn’t what I was expecting. It was a mans voice. Now I’ve been mistaken for a man on the phone before, even this week when phoning the police (someone had crashed into the side of the car I’d just bought and drove off), so I let the conversation continue. There was a short conversation (I can’t remember the exact words now), I think I said “you’re a man” if I said anything, but I hung up. The phone rang again, I think I picked up and he started to demand I pay him £50 a week or he’d out me (I’d already told “her” I was trans before the phone call). I told him I didn’t have any money to give him hoping he’d give up, but he said, ok, I’ll fuck you then, to which I replied “oh you can fuck right off!”

I was shaking. I didn’t know what to think at the time, but after a few minutes I rang the police and told them everything that had gone on, and they made an appointment to see me later that night.

I filled out a statement, the policeman said I’d have to give any previous names which I felt really uncomfortable about, and he said he’d look into it. I’d printed off screenshots of the profile in question and our conversations.

A few days later, they’d tracked him down, had a talk with him, which he claimed was just “a bit of a joke / laugh”. He begged the police not to tell his girlfriend or his work as he worked with kids or vulnerable adults I think and it would ruin his career. He wrote me a letter of apology, but I’m still thinking that was just to avoid any trouble. I let the police decide how to continue, and they were happy giving him a telling off and leaving it at that, but the police did say he only lived a stones throw away from me, which did make me give every man I saw in the area a second look and a wide birth for quite a while afterwards.

I confided in a good friend at the time about it and he was just shocked and wanting to know more. I’ve been thinking of how and whether I should blog about this ever since, and nows as good a time as ever before I completely disappears from my memory.

So, take my advice, be careful, if it looks to good to be true, it probably is, stay safe.

KKK distribute anti-trans bullshit flyer

KKK flyer

Have a look at the above link before carrying on reading please, go on, I can wait.  Dum de dum de dum dem, ok read it?  Then carry on below

The flier quotes Deuteronomy 22:5: “A woman shall not wear that pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment. For all that do are an abomination unto the Lord thy God.” now, just for a minute, let’s imagine trans people don’t exist.  Men should only wear clothing intended for men, and women should only wear clothing intended for women according to the above quote.  Now I don’t see a lot of non-trans men wearing dresses and skirts, but I do see a lot of women, in fact more women tend to wear trousers than skirts now since any time I can remember, so all you non-trans women wearing trousers are abominations!  How many of these trouser wearing abomination women are members of the KKK?  And the KKK themselves tend to wear long robes, or to put it another way DRESSES!  OMG!!! Will the abominations never cease!

Fuck off KKK, no one wants to know what you think anymore.

Shocking video shows lesbian unable to prove gender being FORCIBLY REMOVED from women’s bathroom

Shocking video shows lesbian unable to prove gender being FORCIBLY REMOVED from women’s bathroom

Anyone with half a brain (so that rules out Republican politicians) could see that this is what would happen under these so called bathroom laws.  One commentator on the Pink News article said that if you’re a girl and you dress like a man then you should expect this.  Bull Shit!  She’s a teenager for fucks sake!  You should think yourself lucky that her response was audible and not just a grunt.

I also think the voice of the person presumably holding the camera sounds like someone O know.  Is that you Cathy Brennan?

What we see of this video is the girl being asked to leave as she didn’t have id, but we don’t see what lead upto the police arriving to question her.  Did someone call the toilet police, was someone causing trouble, we’re the police already there.  Hopefully more facts about this will come out in time.

An analysis of gender, transgender, feminism and gender critical feminists part 1

Ok, there’s not going to be a lot of analysis here for very simple reasons I will try to explain.  We all have different understandings of the above, and we all use different language with regards to it too, so, I am reaching out to Gender Critical Radical Feminists aka Trans Exclusionary Radical Feminsts in an effort to try to understand and possibly address (if I can) they’re issues / concerns regarding the above.  I want to do this as a video blog, as its sometimes a lot easier to actually say what you want than type it, and let’s face it, the WordPress interface isn’t the quickest / easiest to use.  So, regardless of your views on the above subject, please ask your questions in the comments section, and when there’s enough questions, I’ll film a response to upload somewhere.  Please use respectful language (as I have tried above) when addressing others. If you can’t use the words to refer to people how you think they’d prefer, please don’t use the words you know they won’t like.

Transgender woman Vicky Thompson found dead at Armley jail

Transgender woman Vicky Thompson found dead at Armley jail

How many more is it going to take before the government will make the right changes?  This was only reported 2 hours ago on the 19th November yet she was found on the 13th.  I know there was the Paris terrorist attacks and Children in Need on Friday, but a week for this to be reported?
