Edmonton Gay Pride CANCELLED - Due To Push Back By QTBIPoC (Queer/Trans/Two Spirit/Black/Indigenous/People of Color) Faction

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.

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.

That whole article is infuriating. No explanation from the pride organization, just accusations and insinuations from others about how racist and transphobic they are.

"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!

#NotTheOnion

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.

Because when military and police officers are present, crazy assholes who cry oppression while smashing things up with baseball bats get arrested. When they make a public disturbance that anyone else would get arrested for in any other situation, they would ALSO be arrested.

They basically want the ability to physically / mentally harass anyone in an incredibly aggressive manner without the police stepping in. But they pretend like it's about oppression.

No, the problems came from one side and one side only, and a PRIDE PARADE was CANCELLED because of it.

r120 This is different, because my inference is you mean a homogeneous group drifting to a pole. This is people who have not one fucking thing to do with sexual orientation pushing themselves into our space because they can. This is particularly ironic in the case of BLM, who are radical racial exclusionists.

Flip the poles on this, so to speak, and imagine what would happen if, say, male sexual abuse victims, or male PTSD veterans shut down the Million Man or BLM Ferguson Marches to insist their issues be addressed.

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?

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?

How the T got into LGBT (article from the New York Times).

[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.

I wrote an event series for Norman Lear years ago about the women's movement in the 1970's. This EXACT same thing happened to that group. What was once an exciting, thoughtful equal rights movement, began to fracture when those within the movement attacked the "mainstream" feminists like Gloria Steinem.

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.

by Anonymousreply 24304/12/2019

I've mentioned this before, but I feel it needs to be repeated:

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.

A Women of the World conference is being held right now and former gay boi, now HRC stooge, "Sarah" formerly Tim, McBride gets a platform on the stage, as if he weren't a fake-ass, self-serving castrato. Actually, given that only 11% of transgender "women" get the chop, ol' Timmy probably still has his meat and two veg.

Why aren't women who've suffered true injustice based on the fact that they are women outraged that this flamingly-gay, extremely-privileged man now gets to dominate the conversation on women's rights?

Here's "Sarah" back when he could have been a stand-in for Jack on "Will & Grace."

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.

The Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee- Nadler, Cicilline, that twat from Pennsylvania, and then Jayapal from Washington state, behaved disgracefully when the Committee held hearings on the Equality Act earlier this month.

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.

If I didn't know better, I would say it was Putin behind the Transgender Lobby. But one thing is for sure, this issue will further divide us when we need to be united against Trump, McConnell and the horrors that the GOP have inflicted and will inflict on us.

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.

You might not give them reason to say it to your face or shun you in public but they’ll be doing it behind your back, make no mistake.

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.

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?

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!"

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.

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.

[quote] we face discrimination and prejudice from both straight people and gay people.

r427, can you elaborate on this? Are you being discriminated against when try to rent an apartment or buy a house? Are you being rejected from potential jobs because you're bisexual?

It's only in the bedroom, R432, and they still get better treatment than any gay person.

by Anonymousreply 43304/13/2019

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.

by Anonymousreply 43404/13/2019

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.

by Anonymousreply 43504/13/2019

r434 There is a reason why bi people love to say "best of both worlds". They want their cake and eat it too. Be damned their LG peers face danger everyday around the world. Bi people need to realize the position they have and whine less about discrimination (only when dating, and it mostly has to do with the opposite sex) and be a better ally to LG people who don't have a choice

by Anonymousreply 43604/13/2019

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.

I don't get it, I truly don't. Since when are we back to putting all kinds of labels on people? I thought society moved past that in the 60s?

I have two straight siblings, brother and sister. My sister was a bit of tomboy in her childhood. 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?

r437 Yeah and assumptions don't help the cause. So bisexuals that live hetero definitely have a duty to let people know they're not just bi but also help LG people because they are already at a point of hetero privilege within the structure. 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.

My issue are with the closet bi people that go under hetero privilege then whine and moan that they have problems when it's far from a big issue compared to L & G

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.

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.

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.

Thanks for the info on the San Diego, Alaska and Nebraska incidents, R508. Had no idea about any of them (and it's not like any threads can be created about them here; they wouldn't last an hour before deletion).

R511 is information on the Alaska bathroom incident.

At the link is information on the school bathroom walkout in Nebraska.

The San Diego incident will be the one that gets people really worked up if it turns out the way I speculated, because it would mean that a woman defending herself from a man in a space where she's vulnerable could be charged with a hate crime. I mean, $30,000 in bail for pepper spraying? The GOP will go to town on that one.

This happened here at Auckland Pride festival because the trans activists went mental that the gay police officers were allowed to attend. When they tried to ban them, all the corporate funding was pulled and the whole thing had to be shut down. Trans don't want their own parade, they just want to shut everyone else's down.

I wrote here a couple of years ago about a falling out with a WOKE acquaintance - straight and a veteran - who dropped me because I tried to explain the deal. He just could not wrap his head around what I was saying. Finally he accused me of being a right-wing trump supporter and told me to get off his FB page.

The only reason I cared is that he was very cute.

R508, thanks for the info.

I saw recently this case is still alive:

Club Industry: Planet Fitness Transgender Locker Room Case Can Go to Trial, Michigan Supreme Court Rules

A former member of Planet Fitness has won her latest appeal to get her case against Planet Fitness tried. The case involves her termination from the club after she warned other members about the club's locker room policy to allow transgender members to choose the locker room that matches their identity.

People think transgender is just like homosexually; they think it is biological so logically the body has to be fixed. This is why every time people show opposition they lose because they think you are attacking a biologically-based identity and it reminds them when homosexual people were told homosexuality was a choice.

by Anonymousreply 541Last Saturday at 3:43 PM

I just got into it with my eighty-something mother last night, R541! "Oh, nice Mrs. So-and-So has twins and one of them is a transgender girl; she's known she was a girl since she was three. All the kids at school treat her like a girl and don't think anything of it." I said, "Oh, Jesus Christ, you, too?" She said, "Well, I don't agree with the bathroom thing or the locker room thing or sports team thing," and I replied, "THEN YOU DON'T AGREE WITH THE THING, PERIOD."

by Anonymousreply 542Last Saturday at 3:54 PM

This is all so new. The lawsuits are only beginning to bubble up now. The resistance will be led by those on the right and moderates will fall in line behind them because common sense is on their side.

I think Martina pushing back against the trans cyclist will be seen as an important turning point.

by Anonymousreply 545Last Saturday at 5:59 PM

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.

by Anonymousreply 546Last Saturday at 6:16 PM

Bruce Jenner is neither straight nor female. His relationship with another trans-identified male is not my idea of heterosexuality, just internalized homophobia on a massive scale.

by Anonymousreply 547Last Saturday at 6:25 PM

"Bruce Jenner is neither straight nor female. His relationship with another trans-identified male is not my idea of heterosexuality"

But it *is* his idea of heterosexuality. These men fetishize what they believe womanhood *should* be, not what it really is. It's sick and twisted, but it doesn't make them any less heterosexual, and it sure as hell doesn't make them gay. Another example of this would be DL "fave" Zinnia Jones and his sidepiece, Miss Penny Robo. They are not a gay couple. They are two heterosexual men enacting a heterosexual fantasy together.
