Edmonton Gay Pride CANCELLED - Due To Push Back By QTBIPoC (Queer/Trans/Two Spirit/Black/Indigenous/People of Color) Faction
2019 Edmonton Pride Festival cancelled due to 'political, social climate'
The Edmonton Pride Festival Society (EPFS) says its board of directors has decided to cancel the 2019 parade and party due to the “current political and social environment”, but there has been criticism from other groups about whether or not that’s the real reason.
Meanwhile, the Edmonton Pride Festival and Pride Society of Edmonton has been surrounded in controversy after being accused by other LGBTQ groups of racism and transphobia.
Shades of Colour and Radical Queer Scholar speculate there’s more to the cancellation than meets the eye and are calling EPFS to be honest about its true reasoning.
Shades of Colour is calling the decision appalling.
“We are calling this decision for what it is: namely, a disavowal of deep systematic problems in the framework of EPFS as well as an attempt to dismiss, target, and put out of play the efforts put on the part of Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour in the LGBTQ2S+ to point towards alternatives on how this organization carries out its activities…
We believe this announcement is an attempt to redirect the discontent arising from the cancellation of the Pride Festival onto communities that have done nothing but speak their truth. We will see blanket statements such as “letting the haters win”, but the problem is much more profound than that. In the decisions carried out by the EPFS, no one won, except some lost systematically more deeply than others.”

We’re in a weird period of transition. I don’t know how it ends. I think white people should get out of leadership roles in theLGBT etc and let the POC take over. See what happens. Why fight? Let those who feel outside inside and see what they can make of it.

Collective narcissism and identity politics: No empathy required.
The first five paragraphs of OP's article made me want to get my head removed.
A study of transgender "women" found very high rates of narcissistic personality disorder. Here's an interesting piece about collective narcissism and identity politics.
[quote] Western colleges are littered with tales of destroyed reputations and careers, any hint of non-conformity is swiftly punished through a series of reprisals. The use of an opaque, malleable language, ensures that any individual caught in this web of lies is unable to escape these allegations of racism, sexism and the deadly accusation of being transphobic. Cultural appropriation, privilege theory, critical theory, intersectional feminism, micro-aggressions and the use of safe-spaces are all tools used to obfuscate the purpose of identity politics from the masses, while simultaneously justifying their beliefs. These incidentally are classic techniques used by narcissists, the end result is rather like 1984, you are left questioning your own name or indeed how many fingers are held up.

Having been a pride organizer in a large city in the 90's we were dealing with some of these same issues. As a gay man, after 10 years I eventually had enough of those who wanted to be properly represented along with the GLBT rainbow and resigned. It was at that time we referred to ourselves as LGBT, because women felt they were not fully represented. Our planning meetings were taken over by these self-identified marginalized groups to the extent that we had difficulty even planning the most basic parts of the annual event. A group of women wanted to have their own parade and they did. Though they also wanted to be part of pride parade that we were organizing and have a say in our planning efforts. Looking back, I should have advocated cancelling pride altogether and forming a new organization that planned Gay Pride (not other initials) and let anyone else who wanted to plan their own parade do just that.

Edmonton Pride is oddly fantastic. I'm from Vancouver & attended Edmonton Pride last year. It's much better than Van or Toronto Pride which are mainly corporate sponsored events now. Does a float with logos for banks do it for you? It doesn't for me. Edmonton Pride is very grassroots and exciting. Probably made more so because Alberta is a the conservative armpit of Canada. This is sad to see. Solidarity is everything - but activists can be their own worst enemies.

"Both sides have said they would be willing to work towards creating an inclusive Pride in future years."
Well then, they should have taken their cue from the Women's Victoria March. O, Canada!
Women’s March Victoria would like to make a public statement about the pink “pussy hats” that many people have chosen to wear at previous Women’s Marches.
We realize that for some the hats have been a symbol of unity. Unfortunately, the symbolism of the pink “pussy hats” is based around the idea of biological gender essentialism, which excludes trans women and non-binary folks. The pussy hats perpetuate the concept of shared womanhood, which ignores the complex ways in which women face different levels of marginalization based on race, sexual orientation, gender presentation, class and disability status. This notion is detrimental to our mission of inclusivity and intersectionality. We want everyone to feel safe and welcome at the march. Wearing one of these toques displays a lack of empathy and understanding towards the various manifestations of gender.
Not every woman has a vagina, and not every person who has a vagina is a woman. In addition, not every pussy is pink. Symbols that equate uteruses, vulvas and vaginas with womanhood are transphobic. Women’s March Victoria strives to be inclusive of all women, including trans women and women of colour (as well as sex workers, women with disabilities, queer women, poor women, etc.), and in that effort, we ask that attendees think about how they can work towards making the march as inclusive and intersectional as possible.
The theme of Women’s March 2019 is Ending Violence, and our chapter has taken this theme very seriously and we want to remind everyone planning on attending that trans people and non-binary people encounter more acts of violence and discrimination on a daily basis, which is why we all should take a firm stance on this issue.

Laugh it up but this is the wedge that will be used by Nazis to undo all our gains of the last 50 years--same sex marriage, gays in the military, all of it.
And by Nazis, I mean the real deal, not garden-variety conservatives who are tired of illegal immigration or whatever and who've been branded as such by hysterical Evergreeners. I'm talking real Aryan Nations types who ten years ago were totally marginalized, who are now finding a receptive audience because the left has become so extreme. It's been said (because it's true) that Weimar Germany was what made Hitler possible.
A big part of the problem, as brought up by R95, is that the gay community has always been too willing to take in anyone marginalized under our big umbrella, regardless of whether or not their particular issue was directly related to homosexuality. Every viewpoint was equally valid, every opinion carried the same weight, even when it was patently stupid. No one could be told to sit down and shut up, that their problems belonged in a therapist's office, not in an organization for achieving political, legal, and social change for gay people. That all-inclusivity and managing by consensus is a very female thing, so it's especially ironic that this aspect of the architecture of the gay rights movement was designed primarily by lesbians, and they're the ones who have been most negatively affected by it.

The LGBTQ Community keeps growing because of one good reason: The GOP using its members as scapegoats to further their own agenda and distract from their own crimes.
The individual members of the LGBTQ Community put their own issues aside and come together to fight against conservatives and their supporters (say, through boycotts, rallies, etc.
Of course the conservatives HATE that and try to weaken the LGBTQ Community with desperate Divide & Conquer schemes to "drop" the individual letters one by one.
Social media platforms like Datalounge are used by trolls to establish the obviously false narrative that their Divide & Conquer schemes work.

How about this: Gay Pride be just that. Let the focus be on gay rights, celebration of gay life, etc. Gay = biological men who are attracted to men, and biological women who are attracted to women. Eliminate this cluster or random letters from having any association with GAY PRIDE. Just call it GAY PRIDE. Anyone who wants to attend and celebrate alongside is welcome. If you want to disrupt, BYE.
If other lettered groups want their own celebrations, then go ahead and fund them, get all the city permits, plan and organize, and create your own thing. And if their event seems interesting and fun, maybe others (even gay people) would join. But...it's not really about that, now is it?

Then they wanted several donations (up to $20,000) for their group to create 'spaces' for them. $1500 for a 'sober' party for their group on Pride evening. Feature their group and photos on the first four pages of the Pride Guide.

As a bi man, I've never understood how Trans got lumped in with Gays, Lesbians, and Bisexuals? Our issue was having pride in our sexual orientations and demanding that we had the right to experience our orientation without interference from the government or others, and that we should have the same rights as straight people.
Trans is completely different, it is about gender identity and they seem to want rights above that of straights or LGBs.
Also, as a bisexual, what exactly is a pansexual and how are they different from a bisexual?
Furthermore, why were they demanding a sober party? I would think they would need copious amounts of alcohol and drugs to stand to be around each other, I know I would the equivalent of every drug and drink ever taken by all the members of The Rolling Stones, just to make it through thirty minutes with these people.

Once a Pariah, Now a Judge: The Early Transgender Journey of Phyllis Frye
R221, Once Upon a Time, there was only L and G, actually G, but that's another story.
Then Trans Activists realized they could use the hard work, $$$ and good will of gay activism to get their way, and so they very deliberately cemented themselves to L and G. There was a lot of pushback, but not enough, and here we are.
How the T got into LGBT (article from the New York Times).
Note how one of the T activists who made it happen is proud of doing a con job on the L and G:
[quote] But this moment — when transition stories are increasingly and empathetically featured in the media, campuses buzz with gender politics and the president condemns transgender persecution in the State of the Union address — did not materialize out of thin air. It evolved over the last quarter-century as Ms. Frye and others built a transgender civil rights movement, fighting dexterously to rebrand a highly marginalized group; demand, and increasingly win, equal protection under the law; and put the T in L.G.B.T. Despite a historic affinity between gay and transgender people, mainstream gay rights groups did not initially embrace the transgender cause as their own. They saw it as a liability. Yet from the time their far younger movement coalesced, most transgender advocates felt kinship and a practical need to ally themselves with the large, relatively well-financed gay movement. “We realized that we should have a parallel movement, but also needed to be dug into the L.G.B.T. movement,” said Mara Keisling, the executive director of the National Center for Transgender Equality. “The folks I work most closely with are all very nice, sweet people, but we had to be such hard asses. At a certain point, we said, ‘No more moving gay people ahead without trans people.’ ” Having felt the sting of gay groups’ rejection long ago, Ms. Frye led some of the earliest sorties in what became a pitched battle for transgender inclusion. She repeatedly argued that homophobia and transphobia were entwined, and made the case that many transgender people are themselves gay.
Decades before Caitlyn Jenner, Phyllis Frye was grappling with bias, scorn and personal pain, and helping the transgender movement take shape.

That's actually not exactly how it happened, R231. Betty Friedan was certainly homophobic. She felt catering to lesbians and blacks would hurt middle America support. But Friedan was rendered moot during the ERA 1970's.
Steinem was the exact opposite. She would ONLY speak at events if women of color could speak as well. Dorothy Pittman Hughes was a dear friend (look her up, she's awesome). Lesbians began to attack Steinem in 1975 because they weren't getting all their needs met. Look up the Redstockings and their treatment of a Gloria and others who were trying to help them as best she could.

The two-spirit concept of the Native Americans has been incredibly misconstrued -- it wasn't the exalted status that modern day "queers" promote, rather it was utilized in two, largely negative, ways: first, boys who displayed femme behaviors were raised as girls due to the strict binary conception of the sexes and thus were seen as "lesser" compared to the male warriors that dominated tribal society; second, warriors from enemy tribes, when taken captive, were forced to adopt a female role as a way of punishing them for failing as a man.

Tim Sarah McBride is not a she. Would you tell a Black person that they must accept a White person as Black because the White feels Black?
Would you tell a Black person that whatever few legal privileges, such as Affirmative Action, they have must be shared with any White that feels Black, despite the White never having been subjected to the systemic racism that afflicts this country?
Then why the fuck do you think that women, who around the world are subjected to sex selected abortion of female fetuses, infanticide, denial of education, #fgm, child marriage, forced marriage, rape, domestic abuse, honor killings, prostitution, trafficking, indentured labour, unequal pay, lack of property rights, lack of freedom of movement, lack of suffrage, lack of reproductive rights, oppression from patriarchal religions, unequal pay, maternity discrimination, should allow men like Tim Sarah to not only speak for them, but also to steal their rights?
At this very moment, states across the US are stealthily passing laws that will change the definition of "sex" to include "gender identity." The Democrat-pushed Equality Act currently in committees in the US House, aims to do that on a federal level.
Not only will women's rights be destroyed, but gay rights as well, because gay rights and women's rights are "on the basis of sex" - no concrete definition of "sex", no legal categories for women and gays.
So, while all of this seems like a bit of snark, the real life implications of the Transgender Lobby and its Clown Car Alphabet Soup, are disastrous for women and gays.
And Trump will win, because the only people listening to women's concerns are the Republicans.

This is the ultimate wedge issue, and yet the Democrats are blind.

When Julia Beck, a lesbian of intelligence, courage and grace, was testifying before the Committee pleading for the Democrats to understand what changing the definition of "sex' to include "gender identity" would mean for the rights of women and gays, the Democrats acted as if she were akin to a witch.
But the GOP are welcoming lesbians, parents and feminists with open arms. The Heritage Foundation has held a series of forums in which the implications of the Equality Act on women and parents' rights have been discussed sympathetically.

ACT UP was attacked in this way. Suddenly, people you had never seen before at meetings would demand that the org. take up women's rights or racial civil rights, though these had nothing to do with the fight to conquer AIDS and homophobia.
They should have been thrown out on their ear, but too many were fearful. The enemy is not smart or helpful, but it is very, very angry, and a lot of the members--who were courageous when it came to standing up to cops and politicians--just caved.

Please post on the Drop the T sub Reddit at R298, too, R308. The sub Reddit has excellent content, but it needs more.
The Gender Critical sub Reddit exploded within the last year, both in numbers and content, and it's really helped organize women from all over the world who were questioning why suddenly the rights of men-who-claim-to-be-women are more important than those of women.
What I'm most worried about is that by the time most people, much less most gays, wake up, our rights will be gone, as will free speech and reality in science, as opposed to #TransBiologyFeelz that even respected publications like Scientific American and Nature are suddenly spouting.

R329 I think these Pride events do more damage then good. It's a very public 'gay' event, and in a way, a marketing event to the rest of society that this is what being gay is about. It's sad. Tired. It keeps a lot of gay and lesbians in the closet, because saying they gay gets them associated with being perverse, flamboyant, and or hypersexual.

We should have just stuck with gay and lesbian. We all know it. Autogynephiles have a weird fetish where part of the fetish is validation from third parties—a recipe for disaster.

Transgender rights clash prompts walkout at CB Abraham Lincoln High
The worst part about the Equality Act and the similar state legislation that will change the definition of "sex" to include "gender identity" is that it's being pushed by (obviously criminally stupid) gay lawmakers.
Fucking morons, Scott Wiener, Toni Atkins in California, responsible for the "Throw Granny Under the Tranny" bill, Equality Act author, David Cicilline (D-Rhode Island), and other gay lawmakers, proudly claim that they represent the lgbTQ.
And the other worst part is that other lawmakers are terrified to vote against something called the Equality Act, and / or piss off the GAY community, because they are under the misapprehension that it's the GAY community that wants the act passed.
Which is why GAYS need to be vocal: no changing any definitions of "sex" to include "gender identity."
And also, if you really want to save gay rights, get out there and be vocal about saving women's spaces. Because women across the world are starting to push back, and if it looks like its the GAY community making them unsafe, then GAYS will be blamed.
British male gays are out there fighting for women's rights, partially because they know the backlash will engulf them, it's time other male gays do too.
Right now, there's school bathroom stand-offs springing up around the US, some are already court cases. This will be a legal war, and if gays are perceived to be forcing the young, just beginning to menstruate girls of America to share intimate spaces with boys, well, gays will lose. So act.

Not everyone has the means to, or desire to, live in WeHo or Hell's Kitchen.
Perhaps, just perhaps, there are gay kids growing up in small towns in Alberta where Edmonton is the closest major city. And perhaps, just perhaps, Pride is as important to them as it was to so many of us in the past. We all have had our own journey.
You don't get to stamp your feet and ruin things for everyone just because you don't get your way. That's not how it works and you're not 5 years old (and by admission, R336 et al is WELL north of that). Maybe reflect back on when you were a fresh young gayling and what Pride meant to you.

Does anyone remember when and how the B was added to the LG? Really, if you're straight today, you don't need a gay rights group. If you're gay today, there it is.

R396 and other , I'm actually nowhere near the woke merchant you guys think, I am fully aware of the absurdity of some of the extremes going on in sexual politics presently, I just think it is a consequence of the times we live in. The advances in rights such as gay marriage shifted the dial so that the previously unheard got the chance of a voice, the fact that voice can sometimes be shrill and annoying is an unfortunate result of the place it is coming from. It's a teenage voice. It's the same place any newly focused upon group has, gay rights were in that place at one time. I can understand why some people feel resentment at trans being lumped in with gay but sadly we are seen by the majority as sexual misfits and all of a kind. It worked for us as a safety in numbers thing at first, that tradition has led to the alphabet LGBTQetc we have today, which is of course a right daft mouthful to those of us from before. I don't share the view that the trans movement is a threat, but can see why the resentment exists as gay rights just seemed to peak and the attention baton was handed elsewhere. I have a more benign view of the trans movement absurdities, I don't see it as a thin ended wedge that will eradicate being gay, trans people have always existed, there was one in the small town I grew up in in the 70s, so it is an issue that we have not really addressed before. Where everything goes to shit is the definite bandwagon jumping that happens from those wanting to appear cool, very annoying, but an unfortunate inevitability of our age of social media. I can heartily share your disgust at the latter, but I try not to let that taint the real issues underneath.

I was just ruminating on this: The passage of the Equality Act and all the state legislation that this gay billionaire (last name Gill) is funding to change "sex'" to include "gender identity" leaves a huge hole that the Far Right can drive right through to turn back gay rights.
Think about it: this legislation, some already passed on the local level, allows a 15-year-old, heterosexual girl, as femme as they come, without undergoing any kind of reassignment treatment, to LARP as a gay man, and no one can say that she isn't a gay man because her "gender identity" legally trumps reality.
So despite the fact that your concerns as a gay man, your lived experience as a gay man, your biology as a gay man, differ greatly from a heterosexual female, she is a gay man too under the law. How can gays be protected when anyone can claim to be gay?
Beyond that, gay rights are legally defined "on the basis of sex" - if there is no concrete definition of "sex" how can there be laws and rulings based on the basis of sex be valid?

If you support trans, then you are against gays, lesbians and women. They are the ONLY minority who want to take away the rights of others in order to secure their own. It doesn't have to be that way. They could get whatever they need without infringing upon the rights of others. But they don't. And if you can't see that, then you have no right to call yourself one of us. Trans are the enemy and if you support them, then so are you.

Most old-school transsexuals, the ones with genuine dysphoria who just wanted to get on with their lives, aren't the enemy, R418
It's the autogynephiles, heterosexual (attracted to women) males who have hijacked the gay rights movement and turned it into the Alphabet Soup Clown Car in order to gain numbers, who are the foe of gays.
These straight men get sexually turned on by the thought of being women, and sometimes also by humiliating women by stealing their tampons, or entering their spaces and showing off their penises. Those are straight-up Men's Rights Activists in a different form, and they're the ones who are using gay $$$, gay hard work and gay goodwill to pass laws that will destroy gays.

As a college teacher, I agree that there are people who are genuinely trans, but there are also people who are NPD cases or BPD cases that are claiming to be trans to get attention and scream at people.
I have many students who are genuinely trans (they genuinely feel gender dysphoria and it becomes apparent in about ten minutes when you talk to them), and they are almost always genuinely good people, though sometimes a bit messed up because they are sometimes so confused and have been treated badly by life.
There are also kids who want to claim a trans identity only because they love social justice activism and claim attention and authority, and because if anyone contradicts them on anything they will scream "TRANSPHOBIA!" (The other teachers and I call them TUGs: "Trans Until Graduation," though the really narcissistic ones like Jacob Tobia or Stefonknee will keep it going as adults). They are the ones who get the headlines and make life miserable for everyone.

R410 It is people like you, who keep bisexuals like me from being involved in organizations and being visible. People think we have it so easy, but in reality we face discrimination and prejudice from both straight people and gay people. If you wonder why bisexuals aren't more open about who we are, that is why. We just want to be free to love whomever we want, just like gays and lesbians. There is no reason to not "trust" bi people, other than your own prejudice. Unlike the Trans, etc... people, bisexuality is a sexual orientation.

R421, your students aren't feeling "gender dysphoria" - they are reacting to the resurgence of sex-role stereotyping brought about by the Queer Theory bullshit. You're a boy who likes ballet - you're really a girl! A girl who likes physics - you're a boy!
It's regressive and flat-out crazy to rename what used to be called having "a personality" into having "gender dysphoria."
After gay marriage, activists who lived off of Gay, Inc., had nothing much to do so became Trans, Inc. That's why you frequently hear that transgender "rights" are THE "civil rights" movement of our time.
And Trans, Inc. is rapidly morphing into Gender, Inc.
Corporations are pouring massive amounts of money into Gender, Inc., because they think it's woke - they think they are helping gays, when, as state ad nauseam, they are actually sending gay rights straight back into the shitter.

r421 Let's say that "many" in this case means 5 students. Now I've seen the population proportion of transgenders reported anywhere from .5% to .02%. If it's .5% then (assuming five gender-dysphoric students) you must be teaching 1,000 students, or 40 classes (assuming 25 students/class). If the number is instead .02% (the most commonly cited and statistically supported proportion) then you have 25,000 students, or 1,000 classes (again, assuming 25 students/class). That's a lot of students!

r427 I understand your plight. But bi people need to realize they have some degree of hetero privilege and while they are just as persecuted and judged as gays when openly out, realize that most hide behind a heterosexual relationship and speak of their bisexuality except online, possibly to a partner, or just full on have "another side" and reinforce negative stereotypes. I especially hate it when most bisexuals love to say that they only engage with the same sex when horny and only form a family and relationship with the opposite sex, that's just insulting to gay people.
BTW I'm not r410, just a bi guy that's observed the general behavior of bisexual identified people.

R431 When a bi person is in a relationship with a person of the opposite sex, they are not hiding they are being their authentic self. Being bisexual means that you are attracted to both sexes.
R432 Never had a problem with renting, because most people I've dealt with just care that you pay the rent. I did miss out on a job, because of a prejudiced gay manager, who knew beforehand that I am bisexual because we met at a mutual friend's party. Several months later, I ran into him again and after a few drinks I asked him why he didn't hire me, he said he didn't "trust" bisexuals and thought all bisexuals were liars, sadly I was in the closet at the time so I didn't pursue it.
But, most of my experiences are of people gay and straight, not believing that my orientation is real, that I must really be gay. How would you feel if 95% of the people you decided to be open about your sexuality to refuse to believe you are that your orientation was even possible. Then there are the ones that think I am some kind of sex addict that can never have a relationship, that I would always want what I can't have. I don't cheat, but even if I did leave a man for a woman, would be no different than leaving him for another man. Then there was a recreational sports team I was interested in joining, but I was told they had their quota of bi men, we were limited to no more than a third of the team, because we were closer to straights and had an advantage, which is totally backward thinking.

r434 You dodged the question. If they are being themselves then I guess they're being hetero to the world because no one else would know they like the same sex. They won't get discriminated against. Think about it again and I will ask you again.
Why are bi people hiding behind a heterosexual relationship? Why do most bi people only engage with the same sex once it comes to sex and not relationships or settling down? The elephant is in the room but you don't want to admit it, because if you did then your argument is immediately gone.

R435 It isn't hiding, people just don't ask or just assumes you are straight if you are in an opposite sex relationship. And it gets ridiculous going around and telling everyone you met that you are bi, when it is only a small part of who your are. Also, I'm very open to relationships with men and women, and I like to have sex with men and women. It is just natural that bi men will end up having more sex with other men, because men are easier to just have sex with without a relationship. In the past I think it was true that bi men were more likely to settle down with a woman if they wanted to get married and have children, because that was the only option, but that isn't true anymore. Just like many gay men used to marry woman, to have a marriage and children.

She loved sports, playing outside, getting dirty etc...BUT she also would play with dolls, have tea parties and so on. My brother was also outdoorsy, liked sports, but has also always enjoyed art, indie/artsy movies and fine dining. Point is, people are layered. Should my sister have been transed because she liked playing down by the creek and getting covered in muck because that's what boys do? Should my brother have been transed because he was sensitive and an excellent artist and therefore really a girl?

Bisexual problems are mostly internal and not external unless they have a same sex partner. Dating sucks, but don't moan about it Bisexuals literally have a large dating pool. People assuming hetero or talking ill of L & G need to be addressed so they know Bisexuals do exist and aren't hiding or fronting.

The issue is that the LGB community is demonstrating is that it is wrong to be discriminated against simply on sexual orientation.
All these other groups are tagging along on the discrimination badge.

Can we cut the pc bullshit and just be real for a second? Pew studies show that almost 90% of bisexuals end up in opposite-sex relationships, that's just the reality of the situation. The hard truth is that the vast majority of bisexual men live their lives as heterosexuals, even if some get some dick on the side in secret or (very rarely) with the knowledge of the wife/girlfriend. Most bisexual women also end up in heterosexual relationships, the only difference being they tend to be more honest with their husband/boyfriend because it doesn't present a threat to these men, in fact, many of them see it as hot and a way to get two women into bed.

The Teacher Selling Strap-on Harnesses to Fund Inclusive Sex Ed Advocacy
Transgender "woman" sex education teacher is now selling harnesses for dildos to fund lgbTQ sex education in rural Canada
BTW: the Trans in Canada apparently have changed high school GSA- Gay Straight Alliance into Gender and Sexuality Alliance.
[quote] I would love for every school board to have a trans-specific policy that's actually used. I’d like for all teachers to actually be well versed in trans inclusion because that would make a really big impact on those students. I would love for every single washroom to be all gender, every single one of them.
I'd love for some classes, especially in high school, not be divided by gender, at least not in the binary sense. I would love, love, love, love for teachers who are teaching health to not split up into two sexes for those classes. I would love for all the girls to not go and have period talk while the boys go and have the “your testicles are going to drop” talk. ...Changes in language can make a really big difference. So, instead of saying, when a man has sex with a woman, or a man has sex with another man, you could say, when a person with a penis has sex with a person with a vagina

It’s always revealing what people do to others when they have power - or at least think they do.
Pride is for everyone, but these two organizations had no one willing to collaborate. So they attempt to hijack and force the pride board to subjugate the parade to their demands and make people outside their group second class, ban military and police officers from participating, and to top it off, misappropriate donated pride funds to fly them to expensive US cities on non-parade business.

Bit of a dumpster fire this thread. I come for the pointless bitchery, to enjoy the schadenfreude of seeing a bunch of blue haired heterosexuals with oppression fetishes being told to fuck off by Pride. I have a lot of problems with emergent trans theory as it seems to be in complete contradiction to everything gay men and lesbians were working towards with regards to our identities back when I was young enough to give a shit. So much of it seems focused on not self actualisation but controlling the thoughts and actions of those of us not trans. There is real overreach with trans activism and basically I don't give a shit that my belief that a straight bloke wearing his girlfriend's knickers once or twice doesn't makes him a woman is actual violence. We used to have transvestites - what happened to them? On the other hand the more extreme anti trans voices here seem to be just as unstable as the mad trannies. You are not being erased you silly cows. Touting conspiracy theories about trannies taking over your world is laughable. Could we not have a bit more nuance with you not hysterically accusing anyone who doesn't share your paranoid worldview as being a tranny?

And also in California, Scott Wiener, the self-proclaimed lgbTQ state lawmaker responsible for the "Throw Granny Under the Tranny" bill that forces women in nursing homes and longterm disability facilities to share their rooms and bathrooms with men-who-claim-womanhood, is now sponsoring a bill that would force prisons to put the she-males in with women.
And that's the tip of the iceberg: across the US and many other countries, the Transgender Lobby is getting stealth laws passed that, when people wake up, will cause gays to be hated.

Woman Accused of Anti-LGBTQ Hate Crime Pleads Not Guilty
R506, the GOP is going to use this issue to help win the election. It is the perfect wedge issue given that the antics of the Alphabet Soup are pissing off even some of its members.
That's why some of us on here are frantic to wake people up: we cannot afford four more years of the Bloviating Tangerine Fatso.
Is Gender Ideology the hill the US is going to die on? And by extension the world, because we can't ignore climate change for another six years?
In San Diego, in February, a woman was arrested and held on $30,000 bail for pepper spraying a transgender "woman" in a remote park bathroom. She faces up to 6 years in jail for a "hate crime." She's pled not guilty.
Think about if the GOP got ahold of this one: woman alone in lonely park bathroom is confronted by a man, maybe dressed as a woman, maybe not, because in CA you don't have to do anything except say you're "trans" or "non-binary" and you're allowed in women's spaces. Woman in bathroom gets spooked and does what many women would do when in an enclosed space, half-naked when a strange man shows up, she fought him.
$30,000 in bail for pepper spray. Bit excessive isn't it? And up to six years in jail?
All over America, women, and men, will be WTF? A woman in a bathroom isn't allowed to defend herself any more?!?!?
This week, a girl in a school bathroom in Alaska kicked a boy in the groin after he said he was transgender and entered the girl's room along with other boys. Before that, a transgender "boy" had gone into the boys' bathroom, so the boys had decided to retaliate and enter the girls' bathroom. The girl who fought back, who had nothing to do with the transgender "boy", was suspended, for defending herself against what she thought was a group of boys entering the girls' bathroom.
In Nebraska this week, school girls walked out in mass to protest a transgender, who apparently showed his penis, using their facilities.
The GOP is collecting these incidences, and will use them, guaranteed.
A woman pleaded not guilty Thursday to hate crime charges stemming from allegations that she pepper sprayed a transgender woman at Chicano Park.

I'm not a pride person but I feel compelled to remind everybody of something essencial about transgender. Homosexuality is a fact, vastly observed and documented by science. There is no gene identified but there is biological evidence like our brains in relation to sexual orientation. As for transgender, there is no evidence that transgender is a real and immutable trait like sexual oriwntation is. There is no male brain and female brain as trans activism states. There is no scientific evidence of gender identity. All there is is people claiming to feel like a gender. Even more, there are people detransitioning which shows transgender takes place on a psychological level. Without malice, gender dysphoria is a mental disorder. Denial of biological reality.
T, and the other letters added only occur on a psychological level and this is why they don't belong in the acronym LGB. This is why LGB need to separate from the other letters. Sexual orientation is biological, homosexuality is a natural variant of sexuality. Transgender is psychological and people grow out of it.

They are not going to "catch up". They have a chosen a side and it is pro-trans and anti-female.
They are not stupid. They know the trans movement infringes on women's rights but their attitude seems to be that women just need to put up with it because only the Left will support things like abortion. But the Left forgets that most women never get an abortion. But all women need to use female spaces such as bathrooms and hospital rooms.
But if the trans movement insists that women are not allowed to occupy bathrooms and hospital rooms outside of the presence of male co-inhabitants then how long will it be until they weigh in and decide that they are also anti-abortion? Most trans"women" are straight like Bruce Jenner so it's not far-fetched to think that they will eventually push more conservative views.

If London needs a separate Trans Pride, what does that say about LGBT solidarity? | Amelia Abraham
Trans start their own London Pride and are miffed that "Cis" Pride isn't upset enough that the trans are breaking off.
Trans author, Amelia Abraham, who calls himself "a lesbian" i.e, cross-dressing straight man, attacks actual lesbians for daring to speak out against transgender harassment. Abraham also repeats the myth that Stonewall was started by a trans woman of color.
From the Guardian, which seriously must be paid in gold ingots by the Transgender Lobby for the daily pro-trans ball-licking it spews.
[quote] Love says they felt “disappointed” and “upset”, not only because the protest took place, but because Pride’s reaction was not strong enough. “That really reflects the cis dominance of London Pride, as I perceive it. If there were trans people calling the shots it wouldn’t have happened in that way. And if those protesters were coming out against gay people the reaction wouldn’t have been the same, but people value gay rights more than trans rights. That’s a fact.”
[quote] Still, I wonder if it would be necessary in the first place if Pride in London made trans people feel sufficiently welcome. This year marks 50 years since the Stonewall riots – the LGBTQ+ uprising in New York. Stonewall is why we have Pride, and crucially, it was led by trans women, mostly trans women of color.
Protests last year have led to a breakaway event. It could spark much-needed change, says writer Amelia Abraham

Trans has no sound scientific evidence to back up its claim that some people are born in the wrong body even though their biological sex is not an impediment to do most anything humans do. It all comes down to gender stereotypes and, for a fraction of them, some kind of fetish, especially a fetish with lesbians whose very nature as women attracted to women has no desire for male bodies.
Homosexuality works based on biology; not psychology. What trans activism claims and demands is against homosexual people; it disregards our nature.

I was in Canterbury England today and they were having their pride celebrations. It was bizzare as I'd say around 70% in attendance were teenage girls in glitter and covered in rainbow flags. Not many men. Also many looked 13 or 14 years old. Has gay pride become a kids event now? Hardly anyone over 25, and I wondered how many were actually gay or bisexual. Very odd. I felt quite detached from it.

I'd be interested to know how many of the non big city prides are being invaded/rebranded by the usual suspects as "QTBIPoC Pride." The big cities have enough gays around to at least partially dilute the takeover, but the smaller pride governing committees can probably more easily be taken or cancelled by the usual suspects, as in Edmonton.

This gay pride in Canterbury was packed with young girls. Maybe they were sisters of gay people etc?. It just felt strange, like a school picnic. I'm sure many of them were straight though.

r563 I bet many of them didn't "identify" as straight, despite the fact that they are. "Queer" is the new fad (or is it an aging fad now?). So ridiculous that people would fetishize the very real struggle our community has faced and continues to face, but teen girls certainly aren't known for their good decision making skills.

Of course. There are still many injustices homosexual people face. And it is time to show support for homosexual people living in places such as the Middle East where homosexuality is criminalised and persecuted with death. R567
If you ask me, Gay Pride should be an ocassion to spread awareness and show we are just like anybody else. Unfortunately, Gay Pride has long been hijacked by fetishists with no decency in public. Just give it a thought, do you think a gay boy or girl born into a homophobic household would dare come out to there parents if what they see is men and women oversexualised and literally naked?

I sort of avoided this thread but I gave it a look earlier today and thanks for the Evergreen College nonsense. I googled it and found some youtube videos. Hilarious but frustrating. They got rid of a fabulous professor of biology - his Rate My Professor reviews are extremely complimentary about his teaching skills and his classes. He and his wife sued the College and settled for near $500k which can't replace their tenured professorships jobs but it's something.
The school has dropped attendance by some 37% which caused it's budget to be seriously cut back. It's a state college.

Lesbians, real ones, jumped in front of Euro Pride with signs that said "Lesbian, Not Queer" and "Lesbians don't have penises" and "Cotton Ceiling = Rape."
Needless to say, the cocks in frocks and their Trans Maidens were outraged!

The extreme victimhood played by transactivists in the comments is disgusting. They are saying they support the killing of transpeople merely for stating a biological truth that lesbianism is attraction to female bodies. One was so stupid as to suggest lesbians sided with evangelicals. Evangelicals. The nonesense has no limits. So much lesbophobia R576

[quote]Where are gay speaking out? So far it's brave lesbians speaking reason. Gay men are hiding.
It's a complicated thing but speaking from my own perspective as a gay man I'd say that I totally get that some men are not happy living as men. We've all met super femme guys who seem to not be happy in their bodies. I understand if they want to change their gender. If they so hate being men then good riddance. That's why I'm feeling quite ambivalent about the whole issue. However I think it is ridiculous that MtFs expect to be treated like natural women from the get-go. And I do agree with Navratilova.

R578, lesbians and feminists are saying that we all need to change society so that people can be as "masculine" or "feminine" as they want, and those with genuine dysphoria who really want to mutilate their bodies should go ahead once they're adults.
But those with genuine dysphoria are a tiny minority and not the violence-threatening trans activists we're seeing today.
The new trans activists are called autogynephiles, they are sexual fetishists who get off on the thought of themselves as women. Most of them are attracted to women. Some of them also get off on hearing women pee, or wearing women's used tampons or underwear. Go to the Reddit ask transgender thread if you want to see them in action.
90% of transgender "women" keep their male genitalia and 63% are attracted to women (source :National Center for Transgender Equality, a trans advocacy group)
Feminists and lesbians are determined to hold onto same sex spaces, because of the millions of years of sexual violence biological females have been subjected to (because you know our non-human ancestors were the same), and to hold onto the rights women have fought so hard for, but these trans activists have managed to stealthily push through legislation that's already taken an axe to women's athletics, safety and rights.

I wish more people would raise their voice. Who would have thought Pride would become a homophobic event.
What lesbians are fighting for today is the same battle homosexual people fought in the past. We, homosexual people are attracted to people of our same biological makeup, hence HOMO (same) SEXUAL (primary and secondary sex traits = body, anatomy). We lack attraction to the opposite sex. Lesbians don't desire male bodies because they lack attraction to male bodies. Surgeries, hormones, makeup are cosmetic changes, but they can't replicate a body that was determined as female since conception with all that entails. Stating our boundaries and being respected for our nature which is innate and cannot be unlearn is the battle homosexual fought in the past and now once again.

Pride isn't for us anymore. It's all straights ("queer") and trans.
|by Anonymous||reply 581||06/16/2019|
I remember about 10 or 15 years ago straights with their kids would come with lawn chairs to sit and watch the "Pride" parade. Just a harmless circus. Let's face it, it has just been dumb and embarrassing for decades. In recent years, it has become something much worse - straight people from demented autogynphiles and "transkids" and their parents, plus people who want to attack the police and the whole event. No gay and no self-respect - as existed in the 70s and 80s. The only actual self-respect and gay content now are the lesbians who have signs that say "lesbians do not have penises" and "lesbian = female homosexual" and "transactivism erases lesbians." And of course the angry autogynphiles hate them and want them kicked out and enlist help in doing so from politicians, media, etc. It has become a completely stupid and vicious anti-gay and anti-lesbian event.

There's two types of pride. The smaller ones have been hijacked by the QT contingent for sure and turned it into a joke. But the bigger ones are where the embarrassment lies with wannabe porn stars. instawhores, exhibitonists, .etc, make it look like all we're about is sex and only sex.

GL people were completely fine with transgender people until transactivists such as Riley Dennis began to push ideas, especially on lesbians, that their lack of attraction to penis is a trauma, that lesbians should work through that "trauma" and include people with male bodies in their dating and sex lives. Homosexuality is not a trauma. Homosexuality is an inborn trait that determines exclusive attraction to the same sex.
Vilifying lesbians for a trait they have no control over is reviving the homophobia that gave birth to gay liberation.

r560 I was at LA DragCon a couple of weeks ago and there are a lot of very young girls with parents who are attracted to the queens. Young girls also tend to love glitter and if you think about it the drag queens are an empowering female driven force to behold for young girls. Those queens are proud and strong and creative. Where else can a young girl experience such a gathering of female empowerment that is not some women in business event or other gathering that would be over their heads?

It's amazing how all these young, fierce gender variants instead of going after the straight males who actually attack them, direct their vitriol and threats of violence towards the mostly middle-aged or elderly, middle-class feminists, AKA TERFs, who if they weren't fighting to save women's rights would be docents at the museum or volunteering at their local community gardens.

Transgender kids’ brains resemble their gender identity, not their biological sex
Is this unbiased and sound science?
I thought scientists agreed there are no male and female brains. Also, what about detransitioners who once felt dysphoric and convinced the were the opposite gender and later they no longer feel dysphoric and desire to regain their biological sex.
We might literally be talking about girls' brains trapped in boys' bodies, and vice versa, according to a new study...

Re the article at R596 "The researchers said that their technique could be used to help transgender children at an earlier age." [HELP...]
This is real gay cleansing.
It has been shown that if you leave kids alone, they get over their "gender" obsession and get on with their lives and usually turn out to be gay adults.
When they push trans on them at a younger age, there is more of a chance that they stick with trans (frankly they would have to for many reasons...)

Something very sinister is definitely going on.
In England and Scotland, there is now considerable pushback against the Trans Lobby, or Gender Lobby, or whatever you want to call the Spay Away the Gay movement, but in Canada, the Orwellian policies pushed by the Trans Lobby are adopted at full speed, and in the US we are only just starting to become aware of gender ideology, even though so many laws have already been passed, pushed by its cultists.
Here, three prominent Brits speak out against the Gender Lobby.
““Cis” is both a term of abuse and a form of linguistic apartheid. It robs women of their unique sexual identity. Intimidates them into accepting the absurd proposition that any man can become a biological female just by announcing it. “Cis” is the most extreme form of misogyny”
