Father Ted creator Graham Linehan reported to police for the “hate crime” of disbelief.

Another “brave & beautiful” man in womanface publicly demonstrates his crazy.

Wow. So he was reported because the Transgender person got outed for trolling?

Linehan can be fairly insufferable, but he's in the right on this one. Hopefully Hayden gets done for wasting police time.

R4 I didn't say he had a reputation for it, I expressed my opinion that I found him insufferable. In fairness to him, that was an opinion formed when I followed him on Twitter, which I haven't done for years, so maybe he's not as bad now.

Linehan is a sexist asshole who is telling bio women what to think and how to act, and is couching it in a fake white knight "it's because I care" cause.

He's neither a woman nor a feminist and shouldn't be getting involved in telling bio women how they should hate trans women. Not his business. So why he's constantly going on about it day in and day out for months on end is beyond me, but it's not healthy.

Some straight guy obsessing on Twitter about women's bathrooms is just creepy as hell.

Fuck off with that shit r10. He’s not allowed an opinion but men in lipstick are allowed to tell women what defines womanhood? Linehan isn’t known for misogyny but he is known for a quick intellect and writing great female characters.

He’s not telling anyone to hate men in lipstick he’s telling a man in lipstick to stop trolling with his many alts and stop attacking his wife.

I've come to the conclusion that with a large (if not majority) percentage of transgender people the primary issue they're dealing with is mental illness. The transgender angle is just an offshoot of the crazies.

Mr Lineham said: 'I won't stop talking about this.

'There's this unquestioning reverence for anyone who says they are transgender, but this unquestioning loyalty is really dangerous.

'Hayden is trying to shut me up by attacking my wife.

I mean, just go look at his tweets and see for yourself. He's one of dozens of accounts with large followers on Twitter who claim to be liberal but who say a lot of homophobic, sexist, racist things.

You can't even find much discussion about him on Twitter because people figured him out so long ago that no one bothers with him. He went after G-merG-ters years ago, for instance, but so often attacked non-GG women that people kinda shrugged him off.

The only entertaining part about his current cause du jour is that GGers are anti trans, too, and they're conflicted in a way that's hilarious to me.

by Anonymousreply 2009/30/2018

There is not much Twitter discussion on him because people are basically in agreement with him. He has common sense. Most supporters of the trans movement also have a limit.

Don't lie about being lawyer. Don't maintain active male identities with different surnames when you are claiming to be a female. Rules that everyone is expected to follow.

Couple things:

1 - can anyone explain why one form of dysphoria (transgenderism) is accepted as valid whilst other forms of dysphoria (anorexia, people who view themselves as disabled/animals/otherkin, etc.) are viewed as delusional?

2 - it struck me as odd how many people commented on the looks of the guy at r45, as if his looks are what prevent him from being considered a woman. No amount of hormones or cosmetic surgery will ever turn a man into a woman, whether they look like this guy or Gigi Gorgeous is immaterial.

by Anonymousreply 5410/01/2018

I think the point about his looks r54 is that he has a full stubble and made zero effort to even begin to look feminine but he claims to be female and that to disagree with anyone who, like him, makes no effort to even so much as shave is transphobic. He is very obviously male and yes, no amount of cosmetics will ever change male to female but the blatantly male appearance while demanding to be called female is forcing others to take part in the pretence and is incredibly arrogant.

by Anonymousreply 5510/01/2018

Yes R55

The problem being the non-creep ones don't identify as trans - instead they're just quietly living their lives as the gender they identify with.

Stonewall, the country’s most prominent gay rights charity, has come under fire from well-known supporters for “demonising” anyone who speaks out about transgender issues. Leading members of the lesbian, gay, transsexual and intersex community have started a petition urging the charity to rethink its transgender policy, saying that they are fed up with its refusal to recognise other viewpoints. In a letter published in The Times today, they said that Stonewall’s advocacy of extreme transgender politics was threatening women’s rights, undermining gay and lesbian identity and stifling freedom of speech. They accused Stonewall of refusing to recognise LGBT people who oppose the hostile tactics of transgender activists. Transgender campaigners say that they represent a vulnerable, marginalised group but critics accuse them of bullying opponents. Signatories include Alison Moyet, the singer and longtime advocate of gay rights; Jonathan Best, former director of the Manchester festival Queer Up North; Paul Burston, the novelist and former LGBT editor of Time Out; and Philip Hensher, the Man Booker-shortlisted novelist once named Stonewall Journalist of the Year. They said that the charity had “made mistakes” in pursuing an ideology that asserts that trans women are women and labels anyone who disagrees transphobic. They urged Ruth Hunt, Stonewall’s chief executive, to accept that allowing people to change their legal gender by simply declaring themselves male or female would conflict with women who do not wish to share single-sex spaces with biological males. A government consultation on gender recognition law reform is due to close this month. The petition accused the charity of undermining “the concept of homosexuality itself” by “uncritically adopting a form of transgender politics” that tells teenagers who do not conform to gender stereotypes that they may be transgender rather than gay. The letter said: “We urge Stonewall to acknowledge . . . specifically that a conflict exists between transgenderism and sex-based women’s rights. We call on Stonewall to commit to fostering an atmosphere of respectful debate rather than demonising as transphobic those who wish to discuss, or dissent from, Stonewall’s transgender policies.” Mr Best said that while in the past gay activists had fought for legislative equality, today’s transgender activists had “an extreme identity politics” and wanted to “redefine sex and gender for the whole of society”. “Men are not women — and your bullying will not persuade us differently,” he said. Stonewall declined to comment.

It all depends on how the question is framed. If someone asked me if trans people should have the full raft of human rights I'd say yes of course.

If they asked if any man can identify as a woman on his say so or if rapists can be put in women's jails if they self identify then they'd get a different answer.

I'm thinking they asked the former.

by Anonymousreply 7910/04/2018

It's rather disengenous of Ruth (to the point of pants of fire) to say that she sees no conflict with sex based rights. If that is the case then why did Stonewall lobby so hard to try and remove sex as a category from the Equality Act?

That will be because they know it conflicts.

Ruth Hunt is a fucking liar. There already has been a conflict between trans and women's rights.

This paragraph from Wikipedia about Ruth Hunt (perfect as rhyming slang btw) tells you all you need to know about how homophobic Stonewall has become. It’s like alternate reality.

She attracted much attention in May 2014 when she announced in the (UK) Daily Telegraph that Stonewall would not be joining a wide boycott of the Dorchester Hotel in London, owned by the Sultan of Brunei, where Stonewall was to hold a gala dinner. The Sultan was proposing to introduce the death penalty for sodomy but she argued that there was not "a mandate for the boycott" and "We only implement actions that we can calculate will have an impact."

No male should be able to access protected female categories and spaces based on nothing but a declaration of female identity. We're supposed to celebrate diversity and difference, but pointing out that the experience of a female is different to that of a male who wants to be female is a hate crime?

I don’t want them exterminated. I want them to shut the fuck up and listen honestly for a while. People do NOT “have” to accept you, some of them NEVER will. Attacking, guilt tripping, and bullying the people who are unsure or have concerns will only drive them to side against you. Trans are not any more special or deserving than any other minority group but they sure want everyone else to think they are. No, they DEMAND everyone else think they are. Meanwhile having used the LGB movements hard won inroads to equality to make themselves THE minority, they are only to happy to throw us to the wolves.

I'm sure all women felt uncomfortable, even disgusted, by their periods as adolescents, and the pain and PMS are no picnic in adulthood, but this whole language around women's bodies suggests two things: that some trans-identifying people of either sex think most girls women love their periods, and that the idea that grown women's normal biology is faintly disgusting, or as I've seen a fair bit 'gross', is encouraged.

I understand the wish to retreat back into childhood, god knows I felt it myself as a teenager girl - the disgust with my periods and wish to have a pre-adolescent body again, to the point where I felt like I didn't want to have a body at all. luckily I got through it and am now a relatively well-adjusted adult woman. But if I had had the narrative of transition to endorse an repackage my discomfort then I have no doubt I would have gone down that path at the time, no doubt at all, which is really scary.

As for the original point, there is just something so incongruous and incredibly literal about covering a tampax box in cartoons to make it better - I really can't imagine that I would have done that, but it is a metaphor for a lot that is wrong with these kind of discourses altogether (including the wish to indefinitely delay puberty in children).

R204 What really pisses me off , as a feminist, about that kind of thing is that they're defining those children's genders by their clothes and behavior in exactly the way they resent being defined themselves.

' Fairies are for girls, bugs are for boys. Slugs and snails and puppy dog's tales that's what little boys are made of.' Isn't that the kind of stereotyping we've been fighting against for the past 50 years?

Its become so blatantly obvious that autism and transgenderism are connected. Black and white, obsessive thinking spitting in the face of free will and varied human temperament.

Trans activists clearly have a "Buffalo Bill/Jame Gumb" view of women, they think that being female is something you can put on or pull off, like a pair of high- heels shoes or a wig. In their sick, little world, men are real people, but, women aren't real, they're just drag.

R223 to be fair the rest of society has done little to disabuse them of that notion. Women's bodies and the trappings of femininity have been fetishized and uses to dehumanise them since history began. They are get another expression of the misogyny we all absorb through our culture.

by Anonymousreply 22410/10/2018

So what I get from the article R207 linked to is Transmen want 'cis' men to fuck them, but they don't want people who are specifically into transmen to fuck them. Perfect T logic there!

And as for "Admittedly, it can be reassuring to find gay guys who aren’t vagina-phobic, or obsessed with a concept of “real men” that hinges on the presence of a penis from birth"

What other fucking definition of real man is there? People born with penises are boys who grow up to become men. What fundamental part of human biology are they claiming not to get?

And no I don't want to have sex with people who have vaginas, because I'm gay. Equally lesbians don't want to have sex with people with penises because they're lesbians. Maybe if trans would just fuck other trans it wouldn't be an issue, but the hard truth is unless you have a trans-fetish NO ONE wants you.

I gave up on that article.

I just saw tital self absorption and duplicity in too much of it.

Notice how the first person doesn’t ever say whether they returned the affections of that lesbian who supposedly fell in love with her. No, it’s all about how she felt validated.

The second person didn’t bother to tell the male homosexual they were Persuing that he was born a woman.

I get fear of rejection but when does it becoming lying and dishonesty? When are you just being self serving and using playing with someone? Applies to the first person too.

A quoted section of the third person’s segment.

“My last relationship ended because not only did I change genders, I also changed my name. It was very hard for him, having met me as my legal name, to adjust. He had fallen in love with the first person he met. He wasn’t falling in love with the person that I was continuously becoming every day. For him to be forced to let go of that memory of me, the first person he met, it was difficult for him. He fell in love with me one time, and he expected me to stay the same.

Yes he fell in love with the first person he met. Maybe it’s actually on YOU that he didn’t STAY in love with the person you became?

No one is required to be attracted to anyone or to stay with a person that becomes a different person, even if only superficially. You are not owed love.

I think there has to be a distinction made between those who transition visually and externally and can pull it off or mostly pull it off - eg. the transman who looks masculine and who would be viewed and treated as a man in public even if they still have a vagina and people like Jacob (ugh!) or the girl who calls herself Michael but is clearly incredibly female and has done nothing to change her body or her appearance.

I see her calling herself a 'transman', however real it may feel for her, as appropriating the identities of those who actually transition . Conflation between transexuals, transvestites, anyone who feels slightly uncomfortable in their body, and male fetishists is such a problem as all of the language around this has become so disconnected from material reality. How can this girl be surprised and offended that people are confused when she goes around calling herself a trnasman but doesn't even bind her breasts? I'm not blaming her, I can see why she's uncomfortable with being a straight woman in the current toxic climate but, at least right now, that is precisely what she is.

"There’s nothing shameful about finding me beautiful, but people have so much internal work to do before they can admit that."

No one wants to-- or should have to-- "do internal work" just to "admit" to something that is most likely not even true. These people seem to have no understanding of boundaries. You have the right to identify however you want, but you don't have the right to force others to participate in YOUR psychodrama. This is why the comparison to gay rights angers me so much. Even if sexual orientations were comparable to "identities" that exist only in the mind (and they're not), how often do you see a gay couple forcing people to attend their wedding? How often do you see gay men re-writing corporate dress codes to include assless leather chaps? How often do you see butch lesbians INSISTING that coworkers endlessly validate their bravery (and it is bravery) in wearing flannel and short haircuts otherwise they're LITERALLY MURDERING BUTCH WOMEN?

Gay people do not even have the desire to control others that way. They just don't.

R258, the problem is that the fightback in the UK has only started in response to proposals to reform the Gender Recognition Act to include gender self-identification.

These lawsuits are only now starting to bubble up through the court system. As they do, it will start to put pressure on politicians who support these illogical laws.

Fresno Bee: Women accuse Poverello House of allowing transgender resident to sexually harass them

Nine women have sued the Poverello House, one of the largest service providers for homeless people in the Fresno area, for allegedly allowing a transgender resident to sexually harass them during their stay at the nonprofit’s women’s shelter.

Poverello House attorney Cynthia Lawrence denied the allegations, saying no staff member knowingly allowed harassment to occur. She added that the nonprofit provides necessary community services and complies with federal and state laws, including those that require equal access to services for transgender individuals.

Peter Kapetan, the Fresno attorney representing the women, said the lawsuit has a chance to establish far-reaching case law on a variety of transgender issues, including whether shelters should use any sort of guidelines to determine who can stay where in gender-specific facilities....

Women staying at the shelter must shower each day, the lawsuit says. Although they shower separately in individual stalls, the women must dress and undress in a common area and place their possessions in crates before and after each shower.

It was during these moments, the lawsuit says, when the transgender woman began making lewd comments to the women, specifically saying things about their breasts and other body features as the group was nude. Some of the women also caught her looking at them through cracks in the shower stalls and while they used the restroom.

The lawsuit claims the alleged harasser showed some of the women nude pictures and videos, including media that showed the transgender woman masturbating. Kapetan said his clients told Poverello House staff about the harassment, but were told they had to be more accepting of the transgender community...

Kapetan said the Poverello House does not have any screening process to determine if a person is in fact transgender or is only looking to lie in order to gain access to members of the opposite sex. He said he plans to present evidence that the alleged harasser was lying about his gender identity to do exactly that.

According to Kapetan, the Poverello House told his clients it could not legally screen the perpetrator in any way. But he believes the nonprofit used the harasser’s transgender status as an excuse not to have to deal with the actual misconduct at hand.

“These women, when they complained, were chastised and told, ‘You have to respect his decision to identify as female,’” Kapetan said. “It’s this political thinking vs. common sense. They were so nervous about trampling transgender rights that they ironically trampled on women’s rights.”

I've noticed that most people I discuss it with thinks it only affects those "poor people" who have transitioned medically. The women are horrified to discover that it means ANY man can come in their safe spaces. They don't realise that anybody will be able to just waltz in and you could end up with rapists in your changing rooms and nothing you can do about it. It's basically brainwashing with a lot of information deliberately omitted, otherwise I'm sure the support would have gone completely.

So good for you Mermaids, Stonewall et al, you're as anti-homosexual as the Thatcher regime back in the 1980s.

I imagine the first healthy thing to do would be to stick with reputable news sources to get a handle on what has or has not happened....combined with what one has observed in real life.

There are many people (some in this thread) who enjoy immersing themselves in the fairy tale hysteria aspect of the Internet. They draw on these Internet stories because they do not have stories in their own lives.

I fear the internet is their main contact with the world, which makes them gullible and overly-impressionable.

Yep, the use of “hysteria” is a signifier of a misogynistic ass.

Real women have been really raped by men pretending to be women. This has happened in places that should be safe and private and were previously sex segregated. Now that it has been made illegal to hurt the feelings of a mentally ill fetishist man these places no longer are safe nor private. This is not OK.

Do you think the British Association of Gender Identity Specialists are hysterical (R310)? because I look at reputable sources. Unlike you I look at written submissions from experts to government inquiries.

That particular organisation raised significant concerns about the number of sex offenders in British prison identifying/wanting to identify as women, based on very real evidence and experience, including a very concerned prison governor who was wiling to go and speak to the 2015 Transgender Inquiry carried out by the UK government, but was not invited. Nobody who voiced any dissent about the trans narrative was invited. Prison psychologists elsewhere have warned of a 'tidal wave' of male sex-offenders wishing to identify as women.

Of course, Of course he has the fucking mermaid hair! What a tool. I was reading some reddit about Jazz and some transman was saying how he was all man despite, you know, being a girl and that Jazz was a woman now and had gone through female puberty, that did not sit well with the gender critical gals. Transguy says: "She did go through normal female puberty. That's why she has breasts. She had a normal estrogen based puberty starting at age 11" But luckily, this was not huffpo or any of the gay rags that now let this shit slide, because trans guy was told this: "seriously? Jazz did not go through female puberty. Do you know anything about basic biology? Jazz is a biological male and males do not go through female puberty even if they are given synthetic (fake) hormones lmao. These are scientific facts. Those hormones don't change the fact that Jazz is a male. The same goes for you, if you take testosterone, you don't become a man. You remain a female. Drugs and surgeries don't change who you really are. You're always one blood test away and doctors will always treat you as a biological female. You are still at risk for cancers that only females can get. You will never get prostate cancer. :p" And you'll always be a better, stronger athlete as a man.

by Anonymousreply 324Last Monday at 11:22 PM

contd from reddit argument about whether Jazz went through female puberty: If you dont consider estrogen-driven puberty a female puberty, it doesnt really matter what you call female. If, based on your definitions, both males and females can go through the same kind of puberty with similar effects and turn out looking, operating. and acting the same way, you just have kind of a useless definition of the words male and female. The only reason your definitions would ever be useful is to determine what body parts someone has, which really doesnt affect the way people operate in the world when you can't see their internal organs or genitals. Obviously all definitions are subjective and made-up for the purpose of conveying some kind of understanding, so what's the point in using the words that way? permalinkembedsaveparentreportreply [–][deleted] 9 points 3 months ago No, I don't consider giving a biological MALE estrogen a female puberty lol as that is not scientifically possible. Jazz didn't go through male or female puberty no matter how desperately you want everyone to believe it. Jazz is not a biological female, doesn't have a period, can't give birth, doesn't have ovaries, a uterus, a vagina, or a cervix. It's not even a real vagina. These are scientific facts pal. You can choose to reject them. That's on you. Females don't have inverted penises which don't function like natural vaginas. Jazz will never know what it is like to be a female. Jazz may love girly things, but he is not a female. Makeup, pink, long hair, nail polish does not determine your biological reality.

by Anonymousreply 329Last Tuesday at 3:06 AM

Just found this. Guess this is the trans version of puberty.

Years ago, Jazz was fitted with a puberty blocker, an implant with hormone suppressor medication. In 2017, she revealed that the medication suppressed the growth of her genitalia because it was given so early and that doctors were concerned that they would not have enough tissue for them work with for the gender confirmation surgery. In the YouTube video, she said doctors decided they could overcome the hurdle by extracting part of the lining of her peritoneum, which is regenerative and is located in the abdominal cavity, via laparoscopic surgery and using it to help graft a vaginal canal.

The procedure is relatively new, having been used for less than a decade for both gender confirmation surgeries for transgender patients and other vaginoplasty operations.

by Anonymousreply 330Last Tuesday at 3:10 AM

Welcome to womanhood, Jazz!

Jazz said the "only bad thing" about getting the surgery was that she would not be able to pee standing up anymore.

"Peeing standing up is something really cool and I don't think I appreciated it enough that I've been able to pee standing up and now I'm not gonna be able to pee standing up. Sorry if that's TMI, but like, honestly, when you wake up in the morning and you're lazy as hell and tired, it's the most convenient thing to do."

“gender confirmation “

Note the continual deliberate reframing of terms to more completely align with extreme trans theory and making the previous term first “problematic” and then “transphobic”, in this case “sex change” —superseded by “sex reassignment”— “problematically” signposts that the trannny was ever anything other than the sex/gender it now claims to be according to its inner voice/feeling/soul.
