Transphobia and sexism – Jenni Murray & Sarah Dittum

I’m commenting on the article linked here written by the journalist Sarah Dittum about another journalist / presenter Jenni Murray.  At the weekend, Jenni Murray published a piece about transwomen not being actual women.  There have been calls for her to be fired from the BBC over the article (Jenni Murray present BBC Radio 4’s Women Hour).  I don’t believe that she should be fired though.  I don’t agree with her on the piece she wrote, and wished she’d never written it / had it published, but it’s done now, and there’s nothing can be done to stop it.  What this blog post is about is about more than one article I disagree with.  Sarah Dittum writes defending Jenni Murrays piece and goes so far as to say calls for Jenni Murray to be fired as “institutional sexism”.  I’m sorry Sarah, Jenni wrote a transpohobic article, there’s calls for her be disciplined, and you’re saying the people calling for her disciplining are being sexist?  What planet do you live on?  If the article had been about race or religion, she’d have been fired in a heartbeat by now, but because it’s only about transpeople, say what you want, that’s fine.

By the way Sarah, I’d have posted this in the comments section of your blog, but it appears that you’ve disabled any feedback to it.   A blog is for discussion and debate, yet you seem scared by any opposing voices.  Shame.

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?

I need to poo poo something.

In my house, I have 1 bathroom.  It has a bath with shower, a toilet and a sink.  When I need to have a bath, I fill the bath with water and have a bath.  When I need a shower, I pull the curtain across the rail and have a shower.  When I need to wash my hands or brush my teeth, I wash my hands or brush my teeth, and when I need to pee or poo, I pee or poo.

When I’m away from home and I need to do any of the above, I do any of the above in a very similar if not identical way, and I suspect that most other people do the same.  What I don’t do when I’m away from home, is assault someone when I go into toilets or changing rooms that are shared with other people.  If I we’re to do that, I would be breaking the law, and should be punished to the full extent of the law.  Laws like the ones being proposed in the USA in the below article, wouldn’t be a get out of jail card, as if I assaulted someone, I’d have still assaulted someone and broken the law.  If I we’re to break the law and assault someone, does anyone really think I wouldn’t worry about breaking another law?  “Oh, I can’t go in those toilets to assault someone and break the law, because I’d be breaking the law if I went into those toilets”.  You see how stupid that sounds?

As a transwoman, I’ve more chance of being assaulted, whichever toilets I use, so at least grant me the dignity or respect or whatever the hell the right word is, and just let me go friggin’ pee or poo before I pee or poo myself, that’s all I ask.

“What are we going to do tonight Cathy?”

“The same thing we do every night Gallus, complain about patriarchy and offer no positive solutions.”
