NYC Dyke March – summary

NYC Dyke March – summary

The last post became fragmented due to all the updates as information became available, so a summary post is in order. ETA: Longer video now released, please read the commentary too. A group varying between ten to twenty transwomen and genderqueers approached a small group of lesbians, which included LGBT activist Cathy Brennan. Quite a … Continue reading

NYC Dyke March – inclusive, but not for lesbians

NYC Dyke March – inclusive, but not for lesbians

The 20th annual Dyke March was held yesterday in New York City. The Dyke March was inclusive (meaning that transwomen and genderqueers were also welcome). Unfortunately some lesbians attending the march were accosted and harassed by a group of transwomen and genderqueers, even though the lesbians respected the inclusive policy. One particular group (of about … Continue reading

TERF and meat-eating vegetarians

TERF and meat-eating vegetarians

This is a related follow-on from the ‘prentend radfems‘ post. Transactivists have taken to naming us “TERFs”, particularly since the Radfem2012 trans-exclusion policy created such a stir. Typical, they do like forceably naming us, first with ‘cis’, now with TERF. TERF stands for ‘Trans Excluding Rad Fem” – as if there was any other kind. … Continue reading

Transactivists – protesting what now?

Transactivists – protesting what now?

Transactivists and their supporters basically protest for a ‘no boundaries’ platform – that trans have access all areas, and never mind anyone else’s needs. Nowhere is this more obvious than recent protests and terrorist actions by transactivists – they even target organisations that are trans-friendly, GallusMag has more on the failed molotov cocktail bombing in … Continue reading

Radfem2012 and David versus Goliath

Radfem2012 and David versus Goliath

We often hear from Transactivists that trans are the most oppressed and marginalised of any discriminated-against group, so we shall investigate whether “David” (the little guy) applies to Trans, and that “Goliath” (the giant) really applies to Radfems. The kerfuffle was brought to light when Conway Hall backed out of providing the venue for a … Continue reading

Radfem2012 and Conway Hall’s ‘ethics’

Following on the official announcement from Conway Hall yesterday, here is a more detailed examination of their decision to reverse the booking for the Radfem2012 conference. Statement Regarding RadFem 2012 In consultation with the organisers of RadFem 2012 and our legal advisors, Conway Hall has decided not to allow the booking in July 2012 to … Continue reading

Radfem2012 and Conway Hall

Radfem2012 and Conway Hall

Conway Hall have put up an announcement regarding the conference. It seems that feminists are not allowed to meet unless there are males present (does anyone else’s mind go to eunuchs/harem?). “Not satisfied” is not the same as “does not conform to”, because they do not have grounds. Comments moderated, may even be turned off. … Continue reading

Sex Equality vs Gender Equality

Sex Equality vs Gender Equality

I was just reading a post on the Occupy Patriarchy website – although this post is not directly to do with that, it serves merely as an introduction to the topic of sex equality versus gender equality. Here is a snippet from the post: Several days ago, I got an e-mail from two longtime feminist … Continue reading
