National Union of Students LGBT+ campaign accuses Student Pride of being run by 'cis white gay men' as the groups cut ties
The National Union of Students (NUS) LGBT+ campaign has cut ties with the biggest gay student group, after accusing it of being run by “cis white gay men” and not being inclusive enough. ---- Noorulann Shahid added that Student Pride is “unrepresentative”, as “most of their ‘board’ is cis [people whose gender identity matches the sex they were assigned at birth] white gay men”.
There is “no way for Queer students to feed into Student Pride and shape the events they want to see”, the activist added.
The statement from the NUS LGBT+ campaign officials came after Student Pride announced a "break in ties" with them.

The NUS Officer who represents LGBT+ students nationwide has said she sympathises with the Taliban, and calls their mistreatment as “insulting and disgusting”.
In a blog post uncovered by Heat Street, Noorulann Shahid, who prefers to be referred to as ‘they’, argues this is ‘not because I sympathise with the Taliban, but because they are Muslims’.
Shahid, described on their Twitter profile as a “Muslim, Feminist, Desi, Queer, Disabled, Trans (they/them)” is a close ally of current NUS President Malia Bouattia.

In the past few years, the NUS has also abolished the gay men's caucus where gay male-specific issues could be raised, encouraged LGBT societies to drop the position of gay men's representative, refused to condemn ISIS on the basis that it would be "Islamophobic" (which is mentioned earlier in this thread), decided it wouldn't be inappropriate to work with Cage (a group that has strong links to Islamic extremism), no-platformed numerous lesbian speakers (TERFS), attempted to no-platform Peter Tatchell for speaking against Islam, and tried to ban drag in its venues.
Individual NUS Islamic Societies have also been allowed to get up to homophobic escapades without any kind of condemnation, and in some cases with full support. In particular, the regular appearances by numerous hate preachers who have openly advocated the killing of gays, and the recent Goldsmith's controversy in which the Islamic Society attempted to no platform Maryam Namazie and was supported in doing so by the LGBT Society and the Feminist Society, who apparently didn't realise the contradiction in supporting the censorship of someone who was speaking against homophobia and misogyny by a group that has openly, and very publicly, advocated both.

Some of the hate for these student activists is justified. However....
"Noorulann Shahid and Beth Douglas, both of whom are NUS officers, launched a withering attack on Student Pride, which they say has abandoned its “radical beginnings” and now allows big corporations to “cash in on the ‘pink pound’.”
They said that Student Pride, a campaigning group which runs an annual conference and careers fair for LGBT+ students, “has become less and less about queer representation and more about profits”."
What this one is saying is, in fact, accurate. Gay INC. has gotten way too cozy with corporate interests to the detriment of the larger struggle for the entire community. These same corporations that a lot of these gay organizations pander to throw us under the bus constantly by supporting anti-gay Republicans, anti-gay Middle Eastern dictators and other various hate groups which undermine the fights that still need to occur for our rights. If these students could quit the gay man bashing and refocus their message on this point, they'd do a lot better job of bringing the community together rather than tearing us apart through needless and mindless spats that go absolutely nowhere and benefit no one.

"Cis" was developed and promoted as a way for the trans community to take the rest of the world down a peg. It's a way to "other" 99.9% of the world, and to give us a taste of our own medicine. Once you know the background of the word, it's simple and easy to reject it along with any other slur.
When you hear "cis" spoken (usually by trans-identified males talking about real women) it is usually spoken with the same sly venom as "fish."
If you need to differentiate transgenders from the rest of the world, the proper words to use are "biological" and "real."
Also, if there is any doubt about the vindictive nature of "cis" and "queer" consider these campus groups bend over backwards to assure that every group is referred to using the language the group itself affirms. Imagine saying to Native Americans that we will now refer to them as "redskins." We could say that the rest of America has "done the work" and "reclaimed" the former slur. It's now a positive and it's how we will refer to Native Americans from now on.
Gay men should feel free to reject any and all nonsense terminology other groups attempt to hang on us.

Wait, isn't 'misgendering' the most heinous crime known to humanity? So maybe trans activists should stop labeling people 'cis' before they've even asked and after we've said not to. Calling any gay man or lesbian woman 'cis', dismisses everything we've been through as a consequence of being outside expected gender roles. I do not 'identify' with the gender performance expected of me because of my sex. I don't even qualify as 'cis', whereas most of the world fits under Stonewall uk's 'umbrella'. The word 'cis' offends and misrepresents me. Call me 'cis' and you're a homophobic hypocrite just trying to assert your power over me.

Question for R70:
What did you call yourself ten years ago? Did you refer to yourself as "cis"? Of course not. It's a newly-coined term that you have chosen adopt. "Cis" is not a term used throughout academia, only in Gender Studies departments (formerly known as Women Studies, and Gay Studies) and other departments and institutions where loony transgenderists have set the list of acceptable language.
Why do you not use the latest term: AMAB? It means "assigned male at birth" and is as dumb as it sounds. As if sex is some arbitrarily assigned label.
You do know there was a time when academia accepted terms like Negro, homophile, and sapphist. The idea that someone is teaching it in a classroom at Oberlin doesn't make it valid.

We have words for that already. They are called "male" and "female" or "man" and "woman" or "boy" and "girl."
Calling a person a "cis" male or a "cis" female adds an unneeded qualifier. Adding the word "trans" as a qualifier for people claiming to be the opposite sex IS the compromise. If you are a man who identifies as a woman, you are not a real woman... you are a trans woman. And if you don't think there is anything wrong with being a trans woman, there is no need to invent a made up term like cis to justify yourself. Trans women are not real women nor are trans men. They are there own unique category.

I'm not sure why the word cis was even included in the phrase “cis white gay men” in whatever statement the students are trying to make. Are they saying there aren't enough lesbians or people of color or trans people in the group? Would gay white men be OK if they identified as trans gay white men?
When language is used with the intent to muddle issues rather than clarify them then it fails. Cis fails and so does queer for different but similar reasons.

R115, how much of the population do you have to be to start redefining reality for the rest of the population? It would have been like gay people demanding that straight people start calling themselves non-gay. Of course, the irony there is that the trans are trying to define everyone as male and non-male. Fucking misogynists.

Oh shut up, R115. Nothing about this thread is about whose life matters, despite persecution fetishists like you trying to make it make it seem that way. It’s about whether the identity of 0.6% should change the classification of the other 99.4% of the population.
But I get it. Transgender people are allowed to decide how they wish to refer to themselves but no one else is.

The SJWs that fill these kinds of groups remind me so much of being an ignorant, idiotic 13 year old mouthing off about world problems that I understood nothing about. The problem is, people don't just shake their heads and roll their eyes and think, 'Aren't they precious? Wait until they meet the real world." like they used to. They actually take these idiots seriously.
One of the best videos was that one where some groups of SJWs invaded a college classroom and the professors in the front just said, "Fuck this noise." and quietly gathered their papers and left the children to throw their little tantrum. It's actually the same advice they give parents to deal with toddler tantrums...just let them tire themselves out and, whatever you do, don't give them any attention for it.

R112, part of the problem is that these young activists have grown up with social media, have a strong command of it, and are able to use it to their advantage. Because major media corps look to social media as a Holy Grail of soliciting disposable income of young people, so they treat their social concerns as ones of dominance in the culture. The problem is that they aren’t representative of adults and people in the real world. I’m sure lots of us had radical ideas about social justice that evolved once we had a little life experience. A lot of young people are going to look back ten years from now about how ridiculous they acted. The problem is that it’s having a major impact on the culture now and going lots of unnecessary divide and friction.

Lots of people with victim complexes saw the struggle of the gay rights movement and wanted the credibility of being persecuted for socially sympathetic reasons. It’s the same as white teenagers dressing black. They redefine the definition of the LGB group to include things like non-binary which allows them to be a part of the group and talk about what victims they are without having to eat pussy.

R108, the thing is "cis" doesn't muddle things- just the opposite. It helps clarify. We need to say cis white gay men, because white gay men would also include white transmen who are gay. Adding "cis" just makes things a little more specific.
I'm a cis white gay man and if you are too (which I assume many in this thread are) I honestly don't see what the problem is. Being cis doesn't demote our social status or cause us to lose any rights. In fact it makes us part of the majority- part of the norm.

Good to hear the push back against "cis" which only dates back to the 90's and didn't enter the discourse until well into the 2000s. Thanks, but no thanks, to the fabricated new label.
I think the trans brigade has had so much success bullying lesbians (because men, with or without wigs and makeup, are highly skilled at policing women's conduct) they think that gay men will roll over and accept their bullshit terminology.
For R128: A white transman (born female) who prefers sex with males, is not a "white gay man." She is a trans-identified female having heterosexual intercourse. If she doesn't use birth control, she might become pregnant. Gay men of every color have 0% probability of becoming pregnant.

The issue I have with 'cis' isn't that it differentiates between trans and not trans but that it solidifies the idea of an internal gender. The definition of cis is someone whose gender identity matches the gender they were assigned at birth - but I don't believe gender identity exists, and certainly not as an innate quality. Using the term 'cis' solidifies a view of gender that I think is bullshit.

R128 it doesn't matter to men as much so I can see why you don't mind. Transmen are not a threat to men, because they are women. it's really about redefining womanhood so that men can call themselves women, move into women's spaces, take over womens movements and groups and attack women's rights from the inside.

Sometimes I think we are living in Edward Gibbon’s “Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire” We seem to be the last decadents waiting for the Barbarians to overrun us and destroy us forever.
There are people dying in countries of poverty, starvation , homophobia, torture, AIDS and war and we are discussing what pronouns to use on 0.2 % of our population and how offended they will be if we choose the wrong one? This is where we are as a society?
We seem to forget when we discuss CIS etc that Gays and trans and Queer etc make up at best 10% of the population? Why should the 90% of the population who are not Trans or Gay or Queer use the pronouns we wish to call ourselves.
The madness of minorities, and I am proud to be part of the Gay one , is that we forget by the very definition we are not the majority. But not only do we say our rights are important. In some ways we say our rights are more important than the majority.
How long does a majority take before it lashes out at the minority? We are so consumed with the minority being dominant that we fail to see how unreal this all is to the mass of the majority. How many straight truck divers or fraternities are going to refer to themselves as CIS White Males.? This is why this SJW shit gets mocked.

[quote]the word 'cis' is not needed. Man and woman are all the identifiers that are needed
We DON'T need "cis" as a specifier. We ALREADY have a designation that differentiates the two: The term is TRANS. As in "gay" transman or "lesbian" transwoman. No need to fix something that ain't broken. Unless, of course, there's something ELSE at work here.
The strident activists that are the main culprits in pushing the "cis" project are attempting to re-define language so that people who are syntonic with their birth sex are branded with the "cis" slur while the terms "man" and "woman" are claimed for transpeople ONLY. This is the same group of trans identitarians who wrote the HRC "Safer Sex" guide that,among other things,referred to biological vaginas as "front holes" while claiming the term "vagina" for themselves and declaring cross-dressers and BDSM fetishists as members of the "trans" community.
This is not about what's in the best interests of individual transpeople. NO ONE elected, ordained or gave consent that would allow these activists to declare themselves proxies of the "trans community". This is a social/political project that is firmly rooted in a resentful, authoritarian, postmodern, neo-Marxist ideology that has no internal logic, coherence and is unverifiable. It is anti-female,anti-homosexual, anti- SCIENCE and PARASITIC.

This is not an organic movement. Where did the research behind all of the hypno sissy porn come from?

If parents still resist sterilizing and mutilating their minor child, they may lose custody.

R149, I agree.
The Ps are now using the same argument as the Ts....that their “attraction” to children is just another sexual orientation, and it wasn’t long ago that gays and lesbians were considered mentally ill.
There’s a connection between the Ps and the Ts...they all want access to children.
Kids trust women more than they trust men. So when a man is disguised as a woman, he can gain children’s trust more easily.
Just like the Big Bad Wolf dressing up like granny.
The T agenda has been successful. Now the Ps are claiming it. Not much difference between the two.

[quote] That straight is the default and we can just call them men and women and if someone is gay then we label them a gay man or woman, but there's no reason to add the extra qualifier back to men and women because straight is what is "normal."
That is a stupid example. Sexual orientation is different than sex. When discussing someone's sexual orientation, applying terms like "heterosexual" or "gay" is adding a descriptive qualifier that necessitates differentiating words.
We are a sexually dimorphic species. There are two sexes that are predetermined at the genetic level. Genetic abnormalities and disorders can sometimes mask a person's biological sex, but that is like arguing there is no such thing as a healthy human being because disorders like hemophilia or cystic fibrosis exist.
If you are a feminine man who likes stereotypical female things (stereotypical as society has defined it), you are still a man. If you are a man who is attracted to men, that does not make you any less of a man. Now if you are man claiming to be a woman (or something other than your real sex), you are still a man, but this is where the qualifier of trans is necessary: you are a trans "woman" i.e. not a real woman but a separate category unto itself. You can feel like you are the "wrong" sex, but you will always be that sex regardless. A man who wants to be a woman will never truly be a woman, but we can respect their viewpoint and experience as a trans "woman" without having to make up words like "cis" that add redundant qualifiers.
It is like a saying I am "man male." It is unneeded, whereas the trans qualifier is (because they are not really the sex they are claiming) is needed.
I am not a gay cis man. I am gay man. A woman who feels like man but is attracted to men is not a gay man. She is heterosexual woman or a gay trans "man."

It's really shitty of the NUS to boycott this event in the name of diversity when it's being held at probably one of the most unprivileged and diverse universities in the country! I understand what the NUS is moaning about and we've all complained about the commercialisation of Pride but to boycott a university which is mainly black and working class is really, really fucked.
